    Hey Dave,

    Glad to see a ‘common sense’ view of the upcoming Eagles season… I was teetering between 8-8 or even possibly 9-7 myself.

    There’s no way RGIII can be close to full-on ready in the 1st game,(his injury won’t let him) but the Skins will come back; and now that the Bucs have Revis, it’ll be another one for the L column.

    But there’s an outside chance that the Eagles could win the Detroit & Chicago games… And who knows if (your favorite & my favorite to hate), Romo & his ‘boys’ pull their ‘end of the season collapse’ routine again, there could be the faintest chance of a playoff aroma wafting in the air, or is that just the refinery I smell?!

    • Hey Jim, yeah, that’s probably the refinery you smell…or the stench of the Phillies! ;)

      There is a part of me that thinks playoffs are possible this year. There are always cases of teams turning things around in one year and making the playoffs. But traditional thinking is that one year of sweeping changes in the organization will not be enough time for things to gel.

      As much as I hate to say it, but if Vick is the starting QB, the season will hinge on his ability to stay healthy, not turn the ball over and run Chip’s offense efficiently.
