NFC East Week 5 Picks

Last week: 2-2

On the season: 7-6

Eagles @ Bills – This will be one of the few games this season I won’t be able to see my Eagles in person or live on “regular TV.”  I live in North Jersey, and therefore the 1pm game that will be televised in my area is Seahawks-Giants.  When I look at the Eagles’ schedule, I see maybe 2-3 more games this season where this will happen, and even less if the Eagles can somehow pull themselves out of their funk.  DirecTV pays the NFL billions for the exclusive rights to the NFL Sunday Ticket, and pass that ridiculous cost onto their customers, by offering the Ticket for $340 (see picture to the right).  For a reasonable price (and I don’t know what that is – $150? Maybe even $200?), I’d buy the Ticket even though I may only need it 3 times this season.  But for $340?  No thanks.  I’ll pass just on principle.  Instead, I’ll find an overseas feed online, watch it on my computer, and simply hope that the feed doesn’t fall too far behind.  Nobody wins.  Good job, NFL.

Anyway, for the third straight week, I’m looking at the Eagles, then looking at the team they’re facing, I’m noting the wild difference in overall talent between the 2 teams, and I’m taking the Eagles… again. Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me.  Fool me three times… Eh…

Seahawks @ Giants – An argument could be made that the Giants have been outplayed by their opponent for the majority of each of their first four games, and have somehow won 2 3 of them.  The 10-point spread in this one is an indictment of how bad this Seahawks team is, and it certainly doesn’t help the Hawks that they’re flying 3,000+ miles to play a 1pm road game on the East Coast.  Last year, the Giants went to Seattle and pounded the Seahawks, to the tune of 41-7.  This game will get most of my attention this week (for the reasons above), and I don’t see much of a contest.  Giants big.

  26. Interesting, still I\’ve came accross one completely opposite blog post the other day

  27. WeNeedLinemen says:

    Linebackers are under-rated, under drafted and underpaid. All the big money and kudos goes to corners and pass rushers but this Eagles team is showing just how important ‘backers are. In fact looking at the really good defenses in history, how many have been driven by great linebacking corps, most if not all of them in my opinion.

    I think the Eagles have got the most talented roster in the league but they have concentrated their weaknesses into two units: the offensive line, the foundation of the offense, and the linebacking corps, the cement that is supposed to link that strong defensive line to a stella secondary. It turns out that’s not a good recipe for a football team.

  28. Fred Smith says:

    Is it time to consider that you’ve seriously overrated the Eagles’ “talent?”

    1. Skinsational says:

      I think its easy to see the talent. They’re just stupid.

      1. Fred Smith says:

        They have talent at some positions, and are mediocre or poor at others.

        McCoy is great. Their starting 2 WRs are very, very good, although both do suffer from the dropsies. Their starting QB has a strong arm and is the best running QB in history, but has made bad decisions his entire career. The depth at WR and QB has cost them games already this year. The CBs are great at defending the pass usually, but can’t tackle. They have a great pass rush from their Dline, but can’t stop the run. The safeties, linebackers, and offensive line are pretty bad right now. There was a post on this site about the TE not being as good as everyone thought he was a couple years ago.

        It seems to me that this team is not as overall talented as they are made out to be, hence their record.

  29. Nico (A Fine Messi) says:

    who knew Sexy Rexy would be so prescient when he declared the Skins would win the NFCEast?

  30. Joe D says:

    how the FUCK is a team so terrible as the eagles FAVORED!!!????????? They are so awful. I knew the Giants were terrible , the only thing that annoys me is that hteir fans are convinced they are a good team due to their record… They will fall hard on their hard part of the schedule but then they will saly “mid season collapse.”…..wrong,u were never good to begin w/

  31. Jason-E says:

    Jimmy

    Do us all a favor and pick the Redskins next week.

    1. Done and done, but only because that’s what I think will happen anyway… So yeah, the Eagles will likely win.

      1. Jason-E says:

        I’m picking the redskins as well. I picked the Bills today. I really wanted to pick the Seahawks when I found out NY was favored by ten. Seems like everytime a team is favored by more than 8 points, they lose. Counting last year’s wildcard game, the Seahawks have been a part of two examples.

    I feel your pain Jimmy. This is a good site if you don’t already know it:
