Nick Wright Continues To Pound His Eagles Hate Drum

Nick Wright is at it again.

Here he is declaring that the 9-1 Eagles, who have won eight straight games and have the best record in the NFL, are not the best team in the NFC:

“I am not going to make the same mistake this year that I did last. So my answer is no they are not the clear-cut best team in the NFC because right now I do not believe that there is a clear-cut best team in the NFC. I believe you can make an equally strong case for Philly, Minnesota and New Orleans, and right behind them, but clearly behind that group of three, Carolina. Last year, I was all-in. The team with the best record was the best team, they had the best quarterback, they were so well-rounded on offense, the Dallas Cowboys.”

Why is that even when Nick is right he feels so wrong?

This isn’t a horrible take. The Saints and Vikings and Rams scare me, too. But to this point the Eagles have proven themselves to be the class of the conference. They’ve handled everything that has been thrown at them, most of it with ease. The thing is, Wright has been downplaying the Eagles for weeks now. First it started with the Seahawks, and then once they showed themselves not to be worthy, it was the Rams, and now it’s the Vikings and Saints. You know what the one constant in all that has been? The Eagles. Just slow and steady poundings, doled out each week. So even if Nicky Nose has a point, this is how media members lose credibility– they make their stance known, try to hide it in impartiality, and thus ruin all futures takes. Something smells here. And it’s not the Eagles.

    1. The Vikings scare you? Case Keenum?
      Jared Goff is soft, a couple sacks and a pick he will quit.
      Saints are our biggest challenge. But. We will play them at home.
      We got this.

  1. I kind of get what he’s saying. But once again, he discredits the Eagles. He talks about the Saints being the best team the past 8 weeks and how they can beat you several different ways. Has he forgotten that the Birds have won 8 in a row as well? And can also beat you on the ground, through the air, or with their defense?

  2. Kyle,

    How can you take a guy, who looks like his mom had sexy with gonzo and out came nick wright seriously. He’s a dumb ass basketball guy like chris Broussard. Let him keep his hate, just makes up laugh more like Skip Clueless.

  3. Why does anyone care what anyone thinks, and how does anyone know anything unless these teams play each other?!?
    Luckily everything will be resolved on the field.

  4. Until they play each other it’s impossible to say who has the edge. Right now it looks pretty good for Birds to maintain the best record. Seattle is a shell of itself on defense but they were just two feet away from sending last night’s game into OT. They virtually never lose in prime time games. The fact that they lost last night makes it more likely they win the next prime time match against Philly. It’s now 23-4-1 in prime time in Century Link. I think we will do a better job containing Wilson but he is still a handful. All I know is the last place I would want to be is playing in the Super Dome or US Bank to play the title game. It is paramount the Birds maintain home field. Sooner or later a team is going to win the game that puts them into the Super Bowl in their own stadium. Don’t want it to happen this year.

    So Dak Prescott was better than a healthy Aaron Rodgers? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    1. My schedule has suddenly cleared up, so I’ve got some time to kill. How about I come visit you in Florida? We seem to have some common interests.
