I don't think so.  In big games the team with the best QB usually wins.  I expect Foles to struggle.  He's not even the best QB on his own team.

Interesting match up. Eagles D is good enough to contain Pats O. Nick Foles is the obvious kicker. I can see the Eagles winning if he has a slightly above average game.

I thought the Falcons would win last year and almost did. I think there are too many leprechauns on the Patriots. Even though a great percentage of my DNA is Irish, I hope the Eagles blow out the Pats.

QB match up is one angle. Defense is another, and the Eagles have a far superior D than the Pats. That's why Nick Foles doesn't have to play his ass off, just don't screw it up.

If the Eagles are going to win there will come a time when Foles is going to have to make plays to make it happen.  "Playing a solid game" will get you the same thing Blake Bortles and the Jags got...a loss.  That's because Brady will make plays.

Of course, he'll have to make some plays.

To his point, Trent Dilfer has a ring, but I would too if I played with that Baltimore D. Eagles defense is very good, but I agree with you, Foles will have to make some plays to win. I expect the Pats to be down at the half, Belicheck to make halftime adjustments, Brady will be Brady.

The NFL has killed the goose that laid the golden egg.  The kneeling and political crap have turned off a lot of fans.  The guys I know and I have talked about how we haven't watched a single game start to finish and don't plan to watch going forward.  It seems the league misjudged its target audience.  Idiots like Jerry Jones come out and kneel with the players, as if he is "one of the boys", then take a look at ratings and attendance and try to change course.  Unfortunately for them, the cow is already out of the barn.

He played a great game against a better (allegedly - that's up in the air now) defense last week.  If he can keep his nerves calm, I think he can shine bright.  The Eagles did a great job last week of easing him into the game.

They overplayed their hand. Surely they'll rethink the approach during the off season, you'd think.

The Patriots have never beat an NFC East team in the Super Bowl.  Maybe Tom terrific isn't as terrific against traditional powers like the Cowboys.  Cowboys would beat the Patriots if they could ever make the Super Bowl again.

Forgot about the Giants.  They've never beaten them either

Disagree. The Patriots joined the AFL in 1960.

Well this is their 10th appearance.  They have only faced an east team 3 times. Losing two to Giants and beating the Eagles. So who knows how they would do against Washington or Dallas.  Probably would beat them also.  9 appearances 5-4. This will be their 10th.

If the Pats win, I could see Brady calling it quits, despite what he says. End on a high note.

I would think the Pats would bring in a free agent QB who has a similar skill set as Brady.  I don't think you replace Brady in the draft. Not sure Hoyer is the answer for the future.

Eagles were the best team all season by far.  Only reason Pats can win tonight is because Wentz isnít playing, and I still donít think Pats win.

This is a much closer game than last year.  And I donít think the Pats will have enough healthy players left to win it in the end.

Oh I know that only too well, being in Atlanta.  That's why the very intentional "kind of" was used.  It was just beginning to feel like a Pats' comeback was brewing.

Chasing that missed extra point in the first half may come back to haunt Philly.
I didn't like going for 2 at the time and now what should be a 7 point lead is a 6 point lead.

Defense was AWOL most of the game for both teams - but it certainly was an entertaining Super Bowl.
Both QB's were dialed in and playing great.

Nope, not buying the announcers were Pats fans.  I actually think Collinsworth is great, but this was one of the few times I was clearly miffed at his point.  I don't think his reaction was as much about the Pats as it was the catch rule and all the controversy behind it.  Just the irony of the situation.

I thought it was right to question the first TD.  But after NE got every break in the Jags game and needed every break to win that game, I'm good with the NFL giving the Eagles the benefit of the doubt on that call.

The Pats had their fist offensive penalty of the playoffs last night.   ::)   When Cooks went out, they lost one of their biggest offensive plays:  pass interference downfield.  Gronk made up for it a little with his flailing and flopping drawing a holding call.  Then he runs over and pushes down DBs with the ball in the air.  I'll just stop before I get on a rant about how much the NFL tries to help offenses.  The Eagles had linemen downfield on big plays all season.  That RPO thing officials just can't seem to keep up with.

Post by: EastexHawg on February 05, 2018, 09:43:37 am
I was obviously wrong about the game.  Foles surprised me and did exactly what I doubted he could do, make plays to win the game late.

I can't stand the Patriots, but I can't say I was happy about the outcome because can stomach the Eagles only slightly more.  In fact, now that they have won I am sure by next year I will despise them more than New England.
