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.

Only guy I know about is the 2018 ALL PRO DEFENSIVE TACKLE!!!

Nothing wrong with following a team with big Cox.

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...

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
