Going to camp tomorrow morning, after see if I can get a LG Blount or Marcellus! Wallace (Bennett) jersey on clearance at the pro shop. Interested to see Cooks and new guys in action.

Anybody else checking out their teams in camp?

We also decided that while we still like the Falcons, the Eagles are our favorite NFC squad.

To be fair, I think that was most of us...
This should be a really good game. Will be interesting to see how successfully the defense will be at getting to Brady.
But since I live in Boston, I'm not sure if I can take losing to the Patriots again...

well, if history has taught us anything about the Pats in the SB, its that regardless of who wins its going to be a close game. I don't think the teams have been separated by more than 4 points by the end of regulation in any of their appearances. My question is if there is enough tape on Foles for the Pats to be fully prepared and if Gronk will clear concussion protocol by the time the game starts. Those will probably be the two biggest factors leading up tot he game.

It's sad that Wentz went down. Would've loved to see him and Brady dueling.

Pats could be losing up to 6 coaches this offseason, so one would think next year would give the rest of the AFC a chance to topple them.

I would say the Philly/Pats previous SB was very competitive, Eagles just couldn't run the offense fast enough to tie or lead at the end.

Details of game/clock/personnel management are key to beating Pats, lots of teams have the players, but mistakes are killer. You could argue that delay of game penalty at the close of the first half on Jags was critical. Small error, big reversal.

As long as the Pats have BB then they're good since he pretty much runs the show.

We are all fans of the Emperor fershure, but the coordinators do a magnificent job in their areas of expertise. BB is terrific, but the fact that he has developed great staff allows him to manage the organization and game time as well as he does.

Last time the team lost senior staff 2004 it took three years to get back, with some stumbles along the way.

I'm not understanding all the head coaching hype for Matt Patricia. At all.

It's gonna be interesting how the Eagles cover Gronk... and they are not very good at covering RB in the flat...

I'm not sure how the Pats will defend both Blount and Ajayi, I think they will have their hands full with those two. If Foles come in as nervous as he did against Falcons then that cause them some serious issues against the Pats. Should make for a fun game.

I would attribute Lions interest to Bob Quinn, knows staff well, uncertain on depth of interest from other teams.
Matt is a pretty far out there rocket scientist!

The Bill Bilachek coaching tree's new home is in AFC south.

Titans -Vrabel (still wondering why....)
Colts - Josh McDaniel
Texans - BOB

lots of weapons for dem Eagles: Ajayi, Ertz, Agolor, Jeffrey, is the rookie Clemens?
Foles should do fine against a Pats D that has some issues- thanks be for Harrison!

Maybe fun story? I call Mike Vrabel half ass because he half assed everything in training camp with the Chiefs. During stretching he'd just stand there until the coach leading it turned towards him and then he'd make half an attempt to stretch. He didn't really practice hard either. Hard to imagine he'd put the necessary effort into coaching.

Looks like wink and nod coaching agreements between McDaniels with Colts and Patricia with Lions.

Since Cards hired, Brian Flores of Pats might stay and become the DC, still have some teams pursuing other Pats coaches for promotions, so unknown.

So all HC jobs filled except for Colts and Lions now?

Looking forward to Eagles stories coming!

Amazing how Belichek has almost 100 more wins then the next active coach.

I think he just passed up Landy for 3rd place all time and needs 46 more to tie Halas and 69 more to tie Shula. He has the best winning percentage of any coach in the top 25. He also has 7 more playoff wins than any other coach in NFL history.

The greatest video is from this past Sunday when they hand Belichek the AFC title trophy and he's just like "I don't want this POS".
