The Philadelphia Eagles and those other teams in the division

I've done that and yes, it took years of practice. Was it worth it? Yes. However, I am almost 32 now. If I was an NFL QB my career would either be over already or on the back end of it. I do not think NFL teams have the patience to wait 8 years for athletic QB's to learn how to use their arms first.

I loved Mike Shanahan and thought Kyle did a great job tailoring an offense to Griffin's abilities. The issue was they should have pulled him off the field before he blew his knee out again and there was also that special relationship Griffin had with Dan Snyder. So a combination of an injury and trying to compensate for that injury as well as the breakdown of relationships which is typical under Snyder's ownership. It was a all a recipe for disaster. But I do miss the Shanahans personally. Not that I'm not supporting Gruden now but I just never thought Mike or Kyle were the problem.

I think the Shanahans were the perfect coaches for Washington. It's a shame Snyder is both impatient and at ties meddling. They definitely should have kept Griffin off the field after the knee in D.C.

You should probably discuss that with the site's Founder and Eagles season ticket holder Hooch.

Uh-oh. Oops. What I meant so say is go Eagles! Rah-rah! 

In all seriousness though, I always did respect Randall Cunningham.

In all honesty Hooch probably doesn't give a fuck what you think about the Eagles. He just wants a picture of you so he knows who to throw the battery at in the Linc parking lot.

Tell Hooch to put a little extra mustard on that throw while he's at it!

Are you trying to help the Eagles?

Seriously I'm surprised eagles fans haven't beaten Kelly to death yet. They still believe in that stupid fast paced offense.

Good idea. Fuck the Patriots. The Eagles would actually have a SB ring if it wasn't for the cheaters of the century.

Give it a few more games. If they start losing out of the gate it will get ugly.
