Eagles vs Giants TNF game


Recommended Posts

Doug Pederson has taken a super bowl winning team AND a Franchise QB and has turned them into *!

His playcalling & play design resembling Reich's. I don't know who's responsible for the lack of talent on that team but wow.

 

This is what happens when the Football Gods smile on a 3rd tier team

and let them win a SB. Then they say sorry but your window for success is now closed for at least a half decade. Lol

They should follow the former Redskins team lead and also change their names to:

The Dallas Football team

The Philly Football Team

The NY Football team

The Washington Football team.

 

But I'm not sure the term " football team" accurately describes them, lol.

what is a parlay 

A parlay is a sports book bet that has multiple games and you must win them all to collect.  But at much better odds than even odds for picking just 1 game.

 

If all the games all have even money lines a multiple parlayed pays approximately:

2 team pays 3-1

3 team pays 6-1

4 team pays 10-1

5 team pays 20-1 

 

Money lines of course affect parlay odds. Point spreads are approx odds shown above.

If the Giants get the #1 pick what would they do? Jones has talent, and they just got him. Do they trade him and take TL, behind that line he won't fair any better. What would Jones go for? I'm sure a #1 pick someplace..

You draft TL and you do whatever it takes to help the line

You would think they would do that for Jones, but he's getting freaking killed back there. You would have thought teams would have learned from watching what happened to David Carr, but I guess not..

Looks like Jason Garrett and Joe Judge think their rookie Andrew Thomas at LT is Tyron Smith, where was the help given? Reminds me of us leaving Clark on an island with Myles Garrett. At least Daniel Jones can move around.

    • Almost XXX. Clearly Obscene.   Hopefully we get that from him here!
    • First it was trading Kenny Moore, then signing 20 players in FA, then paying half of the cap to the OL, and now sending Kelly for #5 AND drafting "Charles Darrisaw"......     You're out of your mind at this point    
    • Pat Mcafee linked him to Tampa on his show with a cool Bruce Arians draft story.... Thinking Tampa looks like a good fit if they can afford him.
    • He should sign with the Texans... Heck he already owns the stadium!   Oh, that's right, they don't have a QB to throw the ball to him.  
    • I realize that under the current conditions, it's not easy to talk about a lot of things, but there are so many topics that are open for discussion. You had a whole season that just finished you can ask about. Superman mentioned a lot of them already - player evaluation, areas for improvement, things he's happy with on the current roster and wants to keep for next season... just in general questions about the state of the roster. I'd love to hear about tendencies he's seen throughout the league that have made an impression on him, I'd love to hear what he thinks separates our current roster from the best teams in the league, they are talking about moving Q to LT... I'd love to hear what they consider important traits and skills for that position and whether Q has those, etc. and this is without even going into anything advanced Xs and Os... Also, notice that it's not my job to come up with questions... it's THEIRS. It's what they are at least partially being paid for(I'm just saying a ton of the questions they go for are incredibly banal and boring). But instead here's what we got:   -17 questions and among them: --- how important is getting the QB position right? yes, this was an actual question. You can spot the uninspiring quote begging questions from a mile away - in general they are in the form of "how important is..." or "how much..." and the answer cannot be anything but "very important" or "very much" and from then on you rely on your interviewee to carry the water for you and get you the quote you need. It's questions you know the answer to, but you will ask anyway just so you can have the quote from the HC, GM, player, etc. --- how important is a QB's confidence for playing the game? Can you imagine an answer other than - very important. --- how important was retaining Matt Eberflus for continuity? ...  --- "How much do you enjoy coming up with a creative way... do you embrace the challenge of having your system fit the QB you have?"(this is the 3d question on this topic... notice I didn't include the first 2 here, because there is some value to understanding Frank's view on how you plan the offense based on your QB's skillset. But come on... I'm almost certain this reporter is writing a story about the "challenges" of it and didn't quite get the quote he needed so... lets go back to it and ask the same question in 3d different way...  --- "How much have you self-evaluated about 4th down decisions"  --- "How important was your previous relationship with Philip Rivers and his knowledge of the offense in terms of getting things rolling more quickly and how much benefit is that for any QB coming into a new situation." I almost feel bad for including this one, because it's kind of a creative cheeky way to ask about Wentz without asking about Wentz... BUT... notice.... it's the exact same quote begging, uninspired question, whether it's about Rivers or Wentz... it doesn't matter if they were allowed to mention Wentz in this situation. The question is the same garbage that you already know the answer to... in fact... you probably have asked the exact same quesiton last year about Rivers.    Frank is a freaking trooper for going through with this, BTW. He is giving thoughtful answers and expounding on even the most eyeroll inducing questions. This media market is lucky to have him(and Ballard) to do their job for them, but I can't help but feel like those press-conferences and interviews are being wasted on such dull and unremarkable interviewers.    So between 35-40% is what I would call "quote begging" questions that don't add much of anything and don't serve much of any purpose but to be a filler to a boring story, questions you(and everybody else) know the answer to but ask anyway just so you can put the quote in a story.    Now, I probably wasn't fair in painting the entire group with this broad of a brush, because some of them actually seem to do good job and I will retract that broad of a generalization on my part. For example, both Joel Erickson and Kevin Bowen I thought asked reasonable questions in this one. Holder too...   I mean... I don't know if I overestimate my opinion. I don't even know what that means. It's MY opinion after all... if I didn't hold it in high regard, I wouldn't hold it. I realize I might be wrong on some things, though. I'm very much welcoming of other opinions that might change mine. Very few if any of my opinions are set in stone.    I live in Bulgaria. I've been following different sports teams throughout my life in my home country, in the US(NBA, NFL), In Europe - Spanish La Liga(soccer), British Premier League(soccer), German Bundesliga(soccer), Champions league(soccer), Euroleague(basketball), etc.   YES! If they can't talk about Wentz, why waste 6-7 questions on it instead of going for things that are available for you to talk about. You just had a whole season full of football to talk about. You are in a period that is dedicated for improving the roster. Ask him about what needs to be improved. Ask him about what he loved from the team last year and what he wants to keep going forward. They've been talking about Q transitioning to LT potentially. Why not ask him what are the traits and skills required from that position that are different than LG? Does Q possess those? And if not yet, what's the things he will need to work on to make the transition? Ask him broad questions about the league, new tendencies he's seen, etc... There is so much you can ask about without going into "how important is continuity" or "how important is confidence for the QB"... questions you've heard the answer to a million times by a million people and it's never "confidence is overrated... the more shaken the QB is the better"....
