Paying close attention to the game since the Eagles are coming up soon. They are not looking all that dominate to me. Wentz is not as accurate as Goff. I think the Rams and Saints will be the two teams in NFC Championship game this year.

They stumbled after the opening drive but seem to be dominating now.

Yes they are dominating now. The Boys are toast w/o Zeke imo.

Eagles O line is crazy good even with Peters out. I can;t wait to play them just to see if they are as good as everyone thinks. Hasn't their schedule been on the easier side? Panthers are probably the best team they have beat.

Yeah, this is like the 3rd time this year that this has happened with the eagles.

I don't get the media's "cream in your pants" love affair with Wentz every week. I think at one point in last night's game he was 6 of 14 for 112 yards in the 3rd quarter with no touchdowns. It wasn't until the Eagles went up by 2 or 3 scores that they started to pour it on with the passing game. I've noticed that a few times this year with the Eagles. They really pad the stats when they get up by 2 or 3 scores late in the game. Now I'm not saying Wentz is a slouch, but damn he's got the best o-line in the league by far. They just DOMINATE d-lines every week. I don't understand how all the "experts" don't see that having time to throw makes quarterbacks look good.

On the other side, Prescott doesn't look very good this year...maybe because his o-line is mediocre after dominating the league last year. We know Whitworth and Sullivan make Goff look a helluva lot better...and look at the Vikings. They make both Bradford and Keenum look like Pro Bowlers. There are very few qbs that can carry their teams without a good o-line and I haven't yet seen if Wentz is exceptional or just a good qb with a great o-line.

The Eagles strong run game last night is what worries me.

Redskins can still compete with Eagles.
The only question is will the Rams at least cover vs Eagles

I know, the Rams better tighten things up.


btw, imo the relatively unheralded Rubber Soul is the best Beatles album

It's certainly one of my favorites along with Revolver.

It's not all the line when it comes to the low sack totals. Wentz is one heck of a QB
Also an amazing escape artist. Amazing is not an overstatement.

I was talking more about the run blocking...huge holes being created. PFF ranks every guy on the line in the top 10 except the guy that replaced Peters.

Because of inherent east cast bias. Wentz has been awesome, but they're across the board excellent. Good WRs, great line, and excellent defense under Schwartz. Plus Miami gave away their RB to them for some reason and they have Blount, too.

Beatles Albums: 1. Sgt. Peppers...
2. Revolver
3. Abbey Road
4. White
5. Rubber Soul

People really need to calm down with the "Rubber Soul, best Beatles Album" hype.
