The Eagles Are 19th in the NFL.com Power Rankings

Last in the NFC East.

I actually don’t disagree with any of this:

It’s very possible that the Eagles can be one of the six new playoff teams the league averages every year. Last year, the Giants, Cowboys, Falcons, Lions, Raiders and Dolphins were newbies. Philadelphia should be able to hold its own against those squads. We saw it against Miami in the preseason. What we haven’t seen enough of is a new-look first-string offense, which my colleague Brian Baldinger so aptly pointed out.

The Redskins are 17, the Cowboys are 8, and the Giants are 7.

The Giants should be much better. If father time hasn’t completely caught up with Eli, their passing game could be downright dominant. The Cowboys are poised to fall back down to Earth and will have to throw the ball more this year, testing Dak Prescott (I think he’s the real deal). But the Redskins? Look no further than the Week 1 line, which started at -2.5 in the Redskins’ favor and has moved to -1 for the Eagles.

I’m not sure what to make of the Eagles, but Vegas has them as a road favorite against the Redskins. If I were a Redskins fan, I wouldn’t feel too good about that.

  1. What’s the fuckin’ problem? Remove my fuckin’ email from this pussy ass site! Fuck you!

    1. The Eagles know I’ll be available to spearhead the search for a new head coach at the end of the season. I’ve also been speaking to Vince Young since he’s expressed interest in competing for the QB job once Lurie realizes he was sold a big bag of jesus junk and starts the inevitable rebuild heading into the 18 season. Holla at me on Twitter, ya’ll and make sure to listen to my groundbreaking podcast where I’m not only reporting the news but I’m straight up fabricating it too.

    Vegas has to hedge their own bets too. Perhaps so many people took the Redskins at -2.5 because it was really appealing. The line shifts to offset the original. Its risk 101 and why bookies don’t go bankrupt, but you read into as if its the cosmos of week 1 outcomes.

    1. Wow you are so stupid…the line would rise in your scenario and Skins would be -5….idiot
