Yeah,  I was hearing Foles to Tate a fair bit but must have been on the earlier drives.  Speaking of drives,  good teams seem able to have long drives as part of who they are. 

The Saints being no exception with that 90+ yard,  22 play drive that seemed to go on forever ... proved the difference as the Eagles just couldn't get hold of the ball and then keep it. Yet,  a couple more completions on that last drive and you possibly/probably win the game.

I have to say, as good as Brees is and Peyton with his amazing playcalling... Saints D were incredible after 1/4 time. Shut out Nicky Franchise.

What I would give to have Kupp available this weekend.

He was pretty good vs the saints and I just read Goff averages less on passing without Kupp.

 

Kupp is super. I'd recruit Reynolds though, personally. Think he goes well.

Eagles are going with Wentz over Foles, not surprisingly. But I found these Interesting stats on bleachers report

When we lost, I breathed a sigh of relief. There was genuinely going to be a QB controversy if he went all the way and won another one. Wentz is the better player no doubt, and I'm not ready to see him go, not for a 1 and a player like people were suggesting.

Yeah Reynolds is good, but Kupp is our slot receiver, meaning Woods plays slot which in turns means a less threat down the side as Reynolds isn’t as effective and means cooks cooks more attention.

For us to win, we need to run the ball down the throat of the saints and punch it out the other side.

I don't have the Eagles as high as Rams... and Eagles probably should have won in the end on that last drive. I'll take Rams this week. (not necessarily my tip though lol)

Yeah have to agree there, I think they win if it was in Philly.

And yet. Philly should have lost against Bears with the Parkey kick. Not only that but Lutz should have ended the Saints game with his 52 yarder.

most games in the NFL I find have a turning point, sometimes it’s a turn over or a 3 and out, etc etc

personally im hoping for a massive win by the Rams where the game is over by the end of the first ?

 

Momday is going to be painful, I should get to see the game at 2pm, such a long time to avoid everything!!!

Happens sometimes in aussie rules too. Max Gawn goes to bench, oppo clears the ball and it's game on.

Eagles game it was the cheeky 4th down fake punt they did.

Rams 28 @ Saints 31

KC should win at home. But BB...................... I just reckon he'll find a way. Again

Yes GtB ... I have picked KC but if I wouldn't be betting against the Pats. So heart rules the head on that pick.  I like Andy Reid too and would like to see him win a SB. 

The Rams for Gorg as well but I picked the Saints only because they're at home and that is a big advantage for New Orleans.

Agree on the home field adv. 

For me for the Rams to win, Gurley and CJ need to get 180+ yards running and Donald and Suh need to be so far into Brees face all game.

And realistically our D will be the difference between win and loss.

Heart says we win, head cries...

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
