    F*ck injuries. This season has been brutal so far, and getting worse each week.

    Weird hiring by the Bears. Matt Nagy is their new head coach. Word out of Chicago is that he was hired because he's the one that liked Trubisky the most among those that interviewed for the position...

    I think McDaniels would have been perfect for this opening, or Vic Fangio (Love Vic, although I think his defensive background hurt him. If the Bears had a vet at QB I'm pretty sure he would have been considered more strongly). I've read good things about Nagy but, on principle, I don't trust anybody coming from Andy Reid's coaching tree.

    Man, Marcus Williams is going to remember that play for the rest of his life. What a way to blunder the Saints whole game.

    God damn it!!!! Another Super appearance for Brady and the Patriots. It was a very good game, the Jags just could not score or stop Brady in the 4th quarter.

    I have no love or like for the Patriots but what they have done over the past decade plus is one of the most amazing things I have seen in sports. In a sport that more than any tries to force you to 8-8 the sustained success they have had is just REMARKABLE. There is absolutely no doubt that Brady and Belichick are the greatest of all time.

    With that said, I really love the idea of Philly winning the SB. Philadelphia really deserves a championship at this point, and it'd be pretty amazing to watch them win one after losing Carson Wentz for the whole playoffs.

    And I think they've got a chance. Their defense is that good. If they're able to score in the 20's, they should be able to compete and maybe even win the game.

    Agreed Bada, it is simply amazing and will never again be duplicated in the NFL.

    That being said...Go Eagles!!!

    I will be rooting for the Eagles as well but dont quite feel as strong as TMC about "love the idea". In my personal experiences, Eagles fans are the worst I have experienced. They are complete douchebags (yes, a generalization of them as a whole). Will be happy for some of the players but fuck that fan base!

    Pats fans are entitled and smug... for sure. but their team actually is actually the greatest of all time. Eagles fans are just as smug for no reason and they are vicious and violent.

    Cmon' Bada...vicious and violent? That is a small percentage of fans that are bad. As a Raiders fan, I take issue when people say that about Raider Nation. Not saying you do that, but 95% of the Silver and Black fans are good people.

    Philly fans are tough loyal and passionate. I think the city is close to Oakland with their blue collar fans.

    Yep. You can't deny there's a percentage of fans that are douches, some of them even violent, but they're generally quite passionate about their team. And that's a good thing (mostly, save for those few violent ones). Better that than a fanbase that's gotten used to lose and simply don't care about the team until it starts winning again (Bucs... cough, cough...).

    I did say I was making a generalization... do I really mean EVERY SINGLE Eagles fan... of course not. However as a whole, they are the worst that I have experienced in terms of aggressiveness. I have talked to several of my season ticket neighbors and all of them said Philly is the absolute worst to go to as a road game in terms of the behavior towards them. You get random aholes at every stadium but they have told me collectively it is awful. Just walking into the stadium you get beer and food thrown on you, people spit on you, and shoving and pushing... and that includes from women and children while their parents laugh.

    One of the games I went to this season was the Hawks Philly game and those fans had ZERO respect for the Seahawk fans, the stadium, or the city. Their behavior was the worst I have seen and I have just about seen every fan base in my 15 years as a season ticket holder.

    Not sure what your experiences are MadBallers at Raider games with opposing fans, but from personal experiences and other people's accounts, Eagles fans are the worst.

    The things you mention are terrible, no fan should act like that. So, maybe you are right and Eagles fans are the worst.

    My season tickets (Bada has sat there with me) are expensive and in a semi boxed in area of about 50-75 seato...b/c of this, I am shielded from a lot of the bad drunken stupid shit that fans do. For me, Cowboys and Steelers fans are the worst. Not b/c of any violence, but b/c of there obnoxious, and disrespectfull attitudes.

    There is a generalization of Eagles' fans behaviors in media and it is pretty accurate. The divisional rivalry is always a hated thing, but when the Giants or Cowboys come to Philly, it is an all out, 8 in the box blitz on fans visiting.

    Still, when the Giants come to Tampa, they get a free home game. Not sure what's worse...

    The Redskins just traded a third rounder and CB Kendall Fuller to KC for Alex Smith. Interesting trade, because it means Cousins will really be a free agent this year. Not sure the Redskins are improving (quite the opposite, in fact), but Smith is going to be a cheaper option for them, and he's going to sign an extension with them as soon as the trade is official.

    Not a fan of the move if I were a Redskins fan, that's for sure.

    There's an interesting market for Cousins out there as well. If I were him, I'd look hard at Arizona and, if they manage to find room under the cap for one more huge contract, Jacksonville. But he's going to have a lot of options, anyway.

    I was just reading about this on ESPN. Seems like as many as 6 teams will be in the Cousins sweepsteaks.
