It'll be a close game Bud, turnovers will decide it. Both teams will score points i think. Bet the over.

If Bledsoe is pressured and hit, the Eagles should win. If Bledsoe is protected, he will pick our DBs apart. The Eagles WITH Westbrook will score 21-24 points against the Cowboys. My guess is the Eagles win in Philly, and Dallas wins down in Texas on XMas. I think the Eagles will split w/ all 3 division opponents.

I feel the same way about McNabby get to him early and he will be out of rhythm long enough for the game to get by him, give him time and the same thing is true, why dont people go after him more I will never know we all know he gets flustered.

Hey Bud I was wondering if we'd hear from you this week! I think the key to the game is our secondary. If we get healthy and get everyone back for the game it'll be a close one. I think the Eagles have enough weapons to cause the Cowboys problems and the birds should come out on top. Without Lito and Hood I think we've got a tough job trying to stop Glenn and that other guy. The only upside to a shoot out for the Eagles is that Reid & McNabb will loosen up and Donnie will run a lot more which opens things up and allows him to be much more effective when he stays in the pocket. Overal this is goig to be one of the best games of the year so far. I'm really looking forward to it!

I would say that if Westy plays, this could be a blowout for the Eagles. Sorry budman, but I just feel like Bledsoe will fall apart in this one. No matter what, I can't wait to watch.

I like ya guy but sorry...DALLAS SUCKS!

That being said, a healthy Westbrook and the Eagles will be able to move the ball with relative ease. Without Westbrook the Birds might be in trouble unless McNabb can use his legs like he did against GB. If parcells decides to put a spy on McNabb than he should be able to do some damage through the air even without Westbrook.

On defense I expect JJ to bring pressure from the front 7 and tell the guys in coverage to keep everything in front of them. The Eagles LBs are the big suprise this year; they are playing at an extremely high level this year. The LB corps (with the help of the best DT rotation in the NFL) is stopping the run better than they have in years as well as getting pressure when they are sent on the blitz.

I see something like 31-17 Birds if Westbrook plays; 24-20 if he doesn't.

Relative ease??? C'mon Leif, you've got to be kidding, you have been getting used to playing against those bad defenses, and offenses that like to turn the ball over.............31-17? Last time they played McNabby didnt even finish the game, after he gave the boys that game remember?

BTW
Eagles blow lol
