    You don’t have to pick your Eagles to win every game to be consider “biased”. It just mean you favor your Eagles more than others. There is a least a little “biased” in every fan and there is NOTHING WRONG with that. Thats part of being a fan.

    It seem like whenever you destroy the Eagles, you sugarcoat it with some postitive. And take cheap shots at others team (ie… Comparing Brown to Wilson after one game against Carolina who ranked 24th in rush defense, or shot at the Redskins of not having 1st round picks until 2028)

    As a reader, I sense You knock other teams but hold a different standard for your Eagles.

  2. Eagles fan and fan of cash says:

    Can you write a post on the 2013 Eagles salary cap situation? How does releasing Vick (6years $100million w/$40 guarantee) and Asomugha (5years $60million w/$25 guarantee) affect us?

    What free agents can we sign since 2013 draft class is weak. Do the whole NFC east so we can see how we compare to the rest.

    1. Yeah, I have something like that in the works. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I hope RGIII and the Skins see these BS rankings.

    Jimmy placed the Redskins in the graveyard long ago. I think back in week 9 after the lost to the Panthers. I don’t pay attention much to this Hierarchy/Obituary anymore because it doesn’t make much sense to me.

    For example:
    Nov 7th – Redskins in Graveyard at 3-6 records
    Nov 15th – Jimmy put the Eagles in Life support at 3-6 record (with 5 games losing streak!!) going into the Redskins game. At the same time, he predicted the Redskins (same record at the time) will beat the Eagles.

    WHAT???

    He will put the Eagles in life support but think they will lose to a graveyard team from same divsion and same record. The logic doesn’t make sense! Eagles bias!

    1. Skins went in the graveyard at 3-6, at a time when even Mike Shanahan basically said the rest of the season was all about evaluation. At the time the Eagles were 3-5. When the Eagles went to 3-6 it coincided with the Giants dropping a couple games, and looking really bad in doing so. And so, I held off a week. It was more about timing than anything, and made perfectly logical sense then way things progressed.

      And isn’t it a little odd to say “He predicted the Redskins will beat the Eagles,” and then 3 sentences later, “Eagles bias!”

      Meanwhile, do you even read this site? I’ve been destroying the Eagles all season.

      If the Skins beat the Giants next week, we’ll talk. Until then, I understand the optimism after a couple wins (albeit against two bad teams), but let’s not get out of control.

      1. It’s been a while since I’ve dealt with the “biased” stuff. I kinda missed it.

      2. Matt says:

        Not logical at all.

  5. TylerD says:

    Skins should be on life support with the Boys,also Eagles Obituary should have been this week their done, just like the Brownies.

  6. brisulph says:

    Skins can’t be dead… they win this week, they are one back of the giants and have an inside track on getting a better divisional record. Also, WC is not out of the question.

  7. Redskins Fan says:

    Bell rigning in the graveyard there, Jimmy. Might want to check out which team isn’t quite dead yet you’ve got there.

    Considering the Redskins are ahead of the Saints in the playoff picture, ahead of Dallas, and have tie breakers over two teams that are barely hanging on….
