    Happy to see Fletch back, we need that piece back there

      Our corners should come up with an INT this week assuming the Front 7 continues to pressure teams the way they have these past 5 weeks especially if our offense gives them a lead to play with…it’s important to march down field, put 7 on the board and suck the life out of Lambeu right from the start..our run defense has been a strength all year, this will be an important test because if they shut down this potent run game, they will give us a damn good chance to win..Nate has been playing his best ball as a bird, but I’m having nightmares of Lacy trucking him…we need Nate and Wolff to bring their big boy pants this week because there is little I hate more than seeing an Eagles safety get Trampled by running backs…can’t play scared against Lacy or he will run right over you…Attack low and ferocious!!!

        Bring the wood this week Safties make him pay for every yard…low and hard with purpose, gang tackling the best suggestion…stripe him of the ball….5’10″ 225-235lbs. Eddie Lacey is a downhill punishing back…. and Starks is no joke either….

        Great post, agreed, just grabbed Foles and plugged him in on fantasy, please don’t screw me like you did against Dallas Nicky

        • GEAGLE

          Thank you sir…I started FOles and Cooper last week in my one league since stafford had a bye…this week, I’m benching Luck to start FOles lol…so I’m with you bro!!!

          • Andy124

            My waiver claim for Foles just went through. Don’t think I can start him over Brees though. Dynasty league, so I may have him for a LONG time.

          • nicksaenz1

            I consistently get screwed by the last place guy in the league who always gets first claim, and is always claiming players I try to claim. This will be the SECOND time this season I won’t be able to grab Foles because of him.

          • G_WallyHunter

            I got the same problem lol
            The week before Dallas, my buddy grabbed him at 4 when I was 8, he knew I wanted Foles, I had just grabbed Terrance Williams the week before (who I thought was a sleeper) and he put up 13, he conned me into trading him Terrance for Nick.

            Then what happens? Nick plays Dallas lol, puts up an egg
            At least I got a cowboy off my team, that’s one positive

          • nicksaenz1

            There’s only one Cowboy I’m 100% okay with having on my team, and that’s Dez. A comparable player can be found for just about everyone else.

          • G_WallyHunter

            Exactemon, and even Dez, put up an egg last game, I’d rather Keenan Allen right now he’s on fire

          • nicksaenz1

            Picked him up in a couple leagues. Depending on how the rest of his season goes, as well as the status of Malcolm Floyd going into next year, he may be one of my 2 keepers. I’m keeping Lacy for sure. He was drafted in the 5th, so he’ll be a 4th rd keeper (keepers move up 1rd each year) and the other keeper is between Rivers, Allen, and Cameron, all of which are FA pickups, meaning last round keepers.

    You know you’ve arrived when you get to take maintenance days. Good on you Ced.

    • Will

      Nursing a bad knee not good….we need him healthy…

    Jon Runyan just announced he won’t be running for reelection. Who will represent eagles fans in congress. Noooooooooooo
