IMO, They should enshrine Andy Reid into the Football Hall of Fame now. His team has managed to win 4 games w/ 3 different QB's.
It boils down to coaching.
1) The Eagles are not the one player team that everyone believed them to be. He built this team, from fine players and lead this team w/ the help of fine individuals. There ARE NO Randy Moss' on the Eagles. There are no Dion Sanders' on the Eagles.
2) Meticulous preperation of said team.
3) The preperation of his 3rd string QB to win important games that had to be won.

Admittedly I'm no football fan (being a transplanted Limey an' all), but even I'm beginning to watch the Eagles with curiosity. So when McNabb and Detmer return, how do you see the team working? "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". Even lacking their #1 and #2 quarterbacks, the Eagles don't appear to be broke. Do they require fixing?

AJ feeley has been doing yoemans work as starter. But he still isn't McNabb. My fondest hope is that Detmer is healthy enough to finish the season out, giving Donovan all the recupertion time he needs to return for the playoffs. The Eagles will have the bye for th e first round to allow McNabb to practice with the team and return to active duty for the post-season.

I agree with UALPHLCS. Andy Reid has done one hell of a job with the Eagles this year. When he first came here, I didn't think much of him because he never had any head coaching experience. He had a couple of rocky years, but now he's turned the Birds into a Superbowl caliber team. I'm heavily looking forward to January!!!

US Airways I have to disagree with just one point. Andy Reid has only had ONE losing season, his first. His teams have made more and more progress as the years have gone on. I think this has to do w/ the dismantling of previous coaches teams and the building of Andy's team Andy's way.
I love the fact that He doesn't tolerate "For ME" players.

As a LIFELONG G-I-A-N-T-S Fan and a avid hater of those Birdies I should be the last person in the world to compliment anything that has to do with the Birdies.
However, Andy Reid is an EXCELLENT coach, he has proved that to me and the rest of the NFL. To early to tell about Canton, but let's face it if he continues the road he is currently taking in his career he should have no problem getting in, but that is a LONG way off. He is excellent in handling his players and Donovan is going to cause headaches for me for years to come.
BTW, UALPHLCS, I am so sorry to hear about UAL. I will continue to fly UAL when I need to and hope to work for them one day as well.

E-A-G-L-E-S!!!!!!!! This is our year...I can feel it...3 easy divisional games coming up, we should win all three of those and then we'll have our first round bye and homefield... I can see Eagles-Bucs in the NFC championship game at the Vet...Eagles winning of course
Now with feeling:

I LOVE EWR,
I am not worried. I know I work for a strong company. If Chapter 11 gives Titlon and company time to fix the mess Goodwin made then so be it I just hope to be around for the final result. That being said I only stay w/ UA cause I want to. I could go anywhere an dget paid more but I see a future w/ UA.
Getting back on topic I am sorry to hear about your condition. Being a Giants fan is treatable. Good teams are not hard to find you simply have to look south along the Turnpike. AT least you are not a Cowboys fan. Those people are terminal and have no hope of recovery. I hope Eagles Green will get you over your Giant Blues.

A condition? Come on. When was the last time the Birdies won the Super Bowl??? Better yet when were they last in the Super Bowl??? Also between '97 and last year I think the Giants won 9 out of 10 or something like that from the Birdies.
My Giants Blue will prevail over the Birdie Green come late December

There is one of the classic symptoms of your condition I LOVE EWR, searching for glory in the present by looking to the past. You really need to see someone about this before you get too infected. Good God think of the damage you maybe doing if you allow it to spread.
I seriously doubt your prediction however, if it makes you feel better the Eagles will probably be able to throw the Giants that bone. Don't count on it.
USAFHummer, I LOVE EWR is truly a sick person and need of our help and sympathy.

Andy Reid has done a good job coaching this year, but calling it the greatest coaching job ever is way overboard. Sorry to break it to you Philly Fan, but thats how it is. Now go Boo Santa Claus or something.

1) You should really go to flyertalk.com check out the UAL forums and join them. There are a few UAL employees on there and the travelers love to have good customer service agents join their community like yourself. There are a lot of 1Ks and Million Mile Flyers who give UAL a lot of Business. I think you will enjoy that site. Let me know if you need help with that site.
2) I have a ticket question for you. Are HK-49s Transferable? And if so how can I get someone to transfer them to me?
Back to the topic at hand...
You are right I am sick. I appreciate what the New York Football Giants have done and will continue to root for them. Can't wait till we play the Birdies again, and of course beat them.

Acceptance is the first step on the road to recovery. You now accknowlege your ailment and after the Eagles destroy the Giants a few more times you should be cured.
Really I was exaggerating a little bit. But to win back to back games w/ your 3rd stringer, against two respectable teams. The guy is a genius. Coach of the Year is his, there are no other logical choices.
So far as I remember HK-49's are transferable however the owner must be present. If your traveling w/ the owner thats no big deal. Hk-49 just love to find themselves in the hands of theives, or are commonly sold on E-bay which invalidates them. So the Owner must be present to use the cert.

Im feelin' it too...Im sniffing 13-3 finish, which would put the Eagles in FIRST PLACE in the NFC (and the NFL for that matter) regardless of what happens to the Bucs and Packers, meaning homefield advantage (the Vet's last stand haha) and a first round bye.........YEEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAA
Dont say I didnt warn you when the Eagles kill the Giants (again) in Week 17 heheh...
