- Go fuck yourself.
- Some content editor, I would think, needed to get some hashtag clicks today, so he decided to curiously omit the team with the BEST RECORD in the league from the top 10, because he knows Philly fans, ones with large followings who can opine on such things and link back, like me, will take the bait. Consider it betook, SANS LINK!
- While the Eagles undoubtedly should slide back a few spots after losing Carson Wentz, the notion that they’re behind basically anyone but the Patriots, Steelers, Saints and maybe Vikings is laughable. They are still better than every other team, or at least in a better position than all of them. And they beat three of the top 10 teams on the road! Odds makers consider Carson Wentz to be worth an additional 3-4 points per game, and would still list the Eagles as a home favorite against every team in the NFC, except the Vikings, which would come in as a push.
I can’t wait for the number one seed in the NFC to not be in the top 10 in power rankings.
For what it’s worth, the Eagles are between 3-6 in the NFL.com, ESPN, CBS, and Bleacher Report power rankings, and they still have the fourth best odds to win the Super Bowl.
