    Also since I've seen this pop up quite a few times in this thread alone it is "I couldn't care less" not "I could care less" as that implies you actually do care at least a little bit.

    I wasnt expecting him to be all-pro, just better than who was there. maybe even just make a better tackle than what we saw. Break up just 1 or 2 pass plays.

    BS. Speaking of heads up asses...

    All it would have taken was one or two plays made and it could have made a difference. Just like the one sack the Iggles finally got. 1 play made a difference.

    Anything is possible... injury, bad breaks but the Eagles MIGHT have the best OLine and best DLine in football with a young superstar QB. That’s a recipe for success.

    No. The Patriots defense was fucking beyond awful, across the board. Putting a guy who wasn't with the program out there was not going to make a difference.

    And before anyone bothers to drop the useless "he played 90% of the defensive snaps during the season" on this thread. He pretty much sucked all year, so..................................

    A lot has to go right to win a super bowl. Eagles fans probably got a few more years with their window, but like all super bowl winners, they think they are a lot better than they truly are.

    Hey dopey, did you even read my quote or did your panties get so twisted after the first fragment that you lost the ability to read anything else? Go put your dog mask back on and stop crying 'woe is me'

    "I get that the Eagles fans want to cling to the championship and who can blame them, I would too, but last year is over."

    We should care more about who won last year...but most about who may win this year

    I don't think they have either individually. I think Dallas bounces back and will again have the best OL and I think the Rams will have the best DL. But if you combine the ranking of both OL and DL together, I think Philly has the best and probably by a pretty large margin.

    Dallas does have the most elite superstars and they are much younger along the OLine too. Tremendously better at run blocking but I agree when T Smith is healthy they are the best... also with the addition of Suh the Rams now have the better DLine. Philly lost a key DE and a valuable back up DT this summer.

    I'm very interested in seeing Barnett this year. If you assume his injury held him back at least a little last year and then add in the fact that he was a rookie, he could take a big step forward this year

    I was happy with last year. We need to find someone to replace Graham cause he’s gone in a year I’m guessing. Barnett look like he could be really good. Not superstar good but good. 2019 or 2020 is gonna be much different when we have to pay Wentz 200 million.

    The big wildcard with the Eagles is all the players coming back from injury and surgeries. Forget about Wentz. If they get back Jason Peters, Darren Sproles, at 100%, and guys like Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Graham who had offseason cleanup surgery are fully 100% by the start of the season, they're going to be tough to beat. Super Bowl repeat tough? I honestly doubt it because that is so hard to do, but I would be shocked, if this team is at full strength, if it doesn't at least make a playoff run.

    Maybe even more then all that is the return of Jordan Hicks. He’s a no name star that’s ALWAYS hurt but gives us the best front 7. Jarntt is right about the DLine. If we could only land a star CB! Come on Sidney Jones!!!

    I read your post. It was the equivalent of a “No offense but...” followed by an offensive comment. Your words were meaningless. Your intent to try to marginalize the Eagles’ championship was evident.

    It’s May 16. We’re still 100+ days from the beginning of next season. Take your attempts to try to rain on the Eagles’ parade and get lost. The Eagles are Super Bowl champions. Deal with it.
