    The eagles

    No, not the band!

    If anyone has access to nfl rewind - I highly recommend watching the eagles new offense. It's only week one so I'm not going to make any claims. Watch it however from the point of view as simply a fan of football. It was fast. Aggressive. Dynamic. 30 plays in the first quarter alone. It had Washington on its heals right from the start. It reminded me of how the zone blitz used to confuse offenses. I watched chip Kelly and that gang laughing, going for the jugular and keeping the tempo high.

    It was fun to watch.

    I don't know if that's the future - but if so, we are a long ways off.

    (but stains fans must be furious they couldn't land chip Kelly!)

    Agree muchly. They wore out a bit in the 2nd half, but by then they had worn down the Skins D and the damage was done.

    The Eagles ... the band??

    Could have fun with "theme songs"!

    Haley - "I'm Already Gone"
    Tomlin - "Desperado"
    MNF - "Gonna Be A Heart Ache Tonight"
    Who does DD say made him make that tackle?: "Gypsy Woman"

    OK, sorry, I'll shut it down now!


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    I'm interested in seeing how the league adjusts...for awhile, the "wildcat" offense was the flavor of the month...it took a year or so, but the league adjusted...

    While Kelly is quite the innovator, I think that the coaches and defensive athletes in the league will be able to come up with answers...

    The band suck. Miserable, bland music for shallow people with shallow tastes. The Eagles sucked bad, man.

    I love it... it's fast, and wide open.. kind of reminds me of the run and shoot the first year.

    Teams will adjust but you have to remember... they can still slow down and run plays like a normal team if need be...

    The main thing I love about it is the offense looks like they bought in 100%.

    I'm not a fan of the Eagles band either. But that Hotel California is anything but shallow.

    It's nothing more than the flavor of the month.

    perhaps. certainly time will tell. but if the eagles are running the flavor of the month, what does that make our stale, unimaginative, bubble screen, delayed draw, quick slant offense we run year in and year out?
