Huh, can't say I had the same reaction when I first saw the schedule. Sure, three straight road games is tough, but it's not like MIN, DAL and BUF are the toughest places to play in the NFL. Before that stretch, I actually like that the Thursday night game at Green Bay is sandwiched between two favorable home games (DET and NYJ), not to mention the fact that they're going to Lambeau Field in September rather than later in the year. I also like that the Eagles get the BYE week before the Patriots game. You can complain about some of the road games 'n all, but I'd argue that the Eagles kind of lucked out by getting CHI, NE and SEA in Philly; imagine if they had to play those three on the road. What stands out for me more than anything else, though, is seeing how their season ends in December: , NYG, , DAL, As far as retaking the NFC East crown, it'll come down to that (favorable) stretch to end the season.

I saw the schedule was leaked early as well but I waited to look at it. Idk why lol I am totally with you about predicting wins/losses (even though I did just harmless fun as you said) cuz can predict injuries, which team will be down, which team you catch at a right or wrong time (last year Eagles got TB at the wrong time and the Rams at the right time) which teams are off byes etc. And I agree grading a draft right is so stupid! You can't grade it for at least five years unless the whole draft class for a team flames out sooner. The Raiders' schedule looks brutal.

^^ I know those aren't the toughtest places to play but regardless road games are always tough no matter who you are playing. The games against Dallas will be huge as always and the down the stretch isn't bad like you mentioned. Just like last year (Skins twice in 4 weeks) its Giants this year which is good. Det and NYJ are gimmie games at home. Its always the case that there will be a game they lose that looks like a win now (TB last year) and vice versa (winning in LA last year). Plus injuries are a factor for the Eagles and the teams they play. Winning in Atl and GB might be 12 wins if they handle the games they should win. I do like having NE, Sea, and Chi at home. It would be nice to win all three but 2-1 isn't bad, can't go 1-2 or even worse 0-3.

Friends -

I don't find the Eagles' 2019 schedule all that unreasonable. They get an entire month at home in the middle of the season. Three straight home games wrapped around their bye. And with those four straight division games to end the season, they should have total control of their own playoff destiny if they haven't screwed the pooch before then. I'm comfortable with the whole deal. Hell, I'm just glad they're playing the Seahawks at home this time. We haven't beaten those guys in 11 years, and I've gone up to Seattle for the last two losses. Let's try them in Philadelphia for a change.

The schedule really shook out nice for me. Minnesota in October, and Miami in December, neither of them a night game. (As of now.) I couldn't have asked for any better. Now I just gotta start digging in the couch cushions for change to make it happen.

Re: the schedule, now the NFL is actually half apologizing for the Buccaneers and the Raiders having to play six straight weeks without a home game in their home stadiums.

/

The Raiders I can kinda see why they get stuck playing two international games. They are a big draw outside of Oakland, and the situation IN Oakland is so fucked up this final season that if anybody was gonna get screwed schedule-wise it's not surprising that it's them.

BSD, ain't your kids up and out on their own yet so you can spend a couple of dollars on yourself? Or does Mrs. BSD keep your wallet safely put away from you next to the key to your cock cage?

If you are ever in Lingusville there is always a seat for you in the theater room and cold beer in the refrigerator. If it turns out I relocate again later in the year, there will still be a seat in the new theater room wherever the new casa is.

CORNELL -

Deal.

The next time the Eagles play at the Lions, I'm there. (God willing!) I got no problem with taking advantage of the hospitality of others until I've overstayed my welcome. I've attended a Lions-Eagles game in Philadelphia, and a Lions-Chargers game here in San Diego, but I haven't been to a game in Detroit. As soon as you see it on the schedule tell Lafayette's and American Coney that I'm coming to settle things.

The Cardinals took Kyler Murray number one overall a year after they traded up for Josh Rosen at number 10. With the Giants and Skins taking QBs Rosen's trade value is all but dead unless the Dolphins enter the mix. But I doubt they wanna give up picks plus they have made it known they won't be any good. I wonder what Arizona will do. If you keep both talk about an awkward situation cuz its not like Rosen is a vet. If he is not traded by the end of the weekend Rosen will be one unhappy guy if he already isn't.

I literally busted out in laughter when the Giants took Daniel Jones sixth overall. He was a projected late first rounder and tha was a reach but the Giants taking him that high is the biggest reach of the first round. I imagine he will get some starts late in the season. Dwayne Haskins to the Skins is interesting. I think he will be better than Jones but I'm still not high on Haskins. Two subpar QBs joining the NFC East is fine by me. Idk why the Raiders didn't take Josh Allen to replace Khahill Mack. I was glad the Eagles took LT Andre Dillard to replace Jason Peters down the line.

Haha! What a Giant fail! See what I did there? Lol

So glad about Devin Bush -- a plug and play addition, in my opinion. This move fills the void that Ryan Shazier left behind. Bush has got to work on that outfit though lol. The CB and WR holes still need to be filled, but this move is a win.

The Browns can talk all they want, but they gotta work on their O-line problem first.

It's interesting that the Ravens picked Marquise Brown. I hope he pulls an AB on them lol

^ The footage of the Giants fans on social media is hilarious! They hate the pick. Todd McShay Jones is a back up at best...I love it! In Jones' last college game Duke lost 58-7 at home to Wake Forest and he threw for 115 yards.

I have the Browns winning the AFC North btw and I may have Pittsburgh in 3rd or even last. Big Ben is the problem there and until they realize that the soap opera continues.

1. A lot of whining over at Giants fan site with the selection of Daniel Jones. Not a surprise at all to Giant fans that he was picked. Jones to NY talk had started months ago. I don't watch Duke football(who does?) so don't have a strong opinion on the guy. Watched a few evaluation videos on him. He's big and a good athlete. That doesn't mean he won't suck. Bortles is big and a good athlete and look at him. All you can do as a fan is hope your team got it right.
2. Liked the Steelers pick of Devin Bush. Not a big lb, but a really good college player.
3. The Nashville crowd was huge.
4. Josh Rosen situation still unsettled. Don't think Lock or Grier have been picked yet.

^ A questionable move at best. Then again, the OBJ trade was a head-scratcher as well. Gettleman does the Giants wrong again! Good for you guys though.

I strongly disagree on Big Ben being the problem. He's the reason the Steelers have reached success in the many years that he's played for the franchise. Sure, they missed the playoffs last year, but the AB drama and Bell headache have been vanquished. Those were the real issues to begin with. Ben forced a lot of throws to Brown, which generated a ton of interceptions. In fact, Brown was the most targeted receiver on the Steelers in all of last year due to the pressure he put on Ben, and that in itself would definitely cause a lot of turnovers. Now that he's gone, the ball will be spread out and will make the passing game more efficient. They will also be able to balance their offense when they mix in their run game. Jaylen Samuels pretty much killed the Patriots last season, and I haven't even talked about Conner yet. I know he's injury prone and fumbles the ball quite a but, but having Samuels to back him up takes some load off of him.

I loved Brown for his time in Pittsburgh, but he quit on his team and clearly cared about his stats more than anything else. Also, the temper tantrums, the Facebook Live nonsense, and the Gatorade-cooler-tossing weren't Big Ben's doing.

Whether he likes it or not, Antonio Brown was a product of Big Ben in terms of the stats he produced. He made him who he was in Pittsburgh because BB was clearly the one throwing him the ball.

Perhaps this is a homer response, but I do feel good about the Steelers' chances come the 2019 season.

I love Antonio Brown as a player. That said, can't excuse the selfish behavior he exhibited last season. I didn't like the Steelers defense before the Shazier injury in 17. I've liked it even less since. Browns, Ravens & Steelers should make for a fun AFC North race. You should be optimistic. It's April. If things go bad next Fall, there will be plenty of time for negativity.

I disagree, Big Ben is kind of like Aaron Rodgers. Very egotistical and selfish. Sure Brown was a headache and Bell held out but former players don't give Ben a ringing endorsement. He blames everyone else but himself. In Denver he didn't take ownership when he threw that terrible pick in the end zone to the d-line man. With Brown and Bell gone he can't use them as scape goats unless he throws Smith Shuaster under the bus. I think if things go south this season for Pittsburgh (which I expect) everyone will finally see that Ben has been the problem all these years.

Reportedly minutes before the draft Arizona was trying to shop Josh Rosen for a first rounder. No one in their right mind would do that. They are gonna have a take a lesser pick cuz they have to get rid of him by the end of the weekend.

Yeah. Antonio Brown is the epitome of selfishness. He was clearly butthurt when JuJu was named Team MVP. Was it the hit by Burfict that made him lose his sanity? Smh

I also didnít like the Steelersí defense before Shazier went down, particularly in the secondary. Joe Haden is their most reliable cornerback, and thatís concerning since heís getting older. The Steelers lack playmakers in the secondary, and that bothers the heck out of me. The only memorable interception they had last season was Joe Hadenís pick of Tom Brady at a crucial time in the game, and they didn't have many. That was the highlight of the Steelersí 2018 season! In terms of CB talent in the draft, I know that Greedy Williams is still on the board, but they could go for Amani Hooker at safety. Iím intrigued.

I am optimistic, btw, about the Steelersí chances in the coming season. I will stay that way until the regular season starts.

You can say what you want about Roethlisberger. He gets bashed a lot by many people, and I totally understand where theyíre coming from.

Look, Iím not saying that he is blameless. I can share examples as to why he isnít. First of all, he throws his teammates under the bus whenever things go wrong. You mentioned this one, and Iím completely aware of it. Iím not suggesting that he should be passive, and leave his teammates alone. In fact, he should say something to them whenever they mess up a route, drop the football, or miss their blocks. This should all be kept in the locker room, however. Secondly, he is a gunslinger. This could be good or bad, but itís been proven already that this style of play isnít necessarily a good thing. Just ask Brett Favre. Also, not only does he blame his teammates for several bad plays, he also blames his coaches for poor decision-making and does not always take ownership whenever he himself fails to make good decisions on the field.

I can pretty much go on and on about the things I donít like about him, but Ben is still my guy for as long as heís a Steeler. Maybe Iím just overly optimistic, but I see the Steelers having a better 2019 season than you do. Distractions are distractions, and theyíve gotten rid of them by letting Bell and Brown go. Roethlisberger will come out pissed off and will shun all his critics by putting up great numbers and leading the Steelers to their 7th SB! That said, this is what homerism is about lol!

^ I get you gotta stick up for your guy. I spent too much time sticking up for Donovan McNabb but when he was gased and puked in the Super Bowl I was done. Then the whole saga with TO. McNabb was never a Philly guy and I hate him. Sure he brought us to all those NFC Title games but he always choked. I hope Wentz stays on the field and plays well or I might sour on him. I thought we did the right thing letting Foles go. If he won another Super Bowl then you could have made the arguement to keep him. I am not usually optimistic but I used to be more pessimistic. I hope the Eagles make a Super Bowl run but still way too early. The Steelers gotta exercise their demons with the Patriots if they wanna go deep in the playoffs. What do you think of Josh Rosen going to Miami? He gets to play NE twice now and at least the Cards got a a second for him. I would not have even given a thrid for him but it won't cost them as much as if they drafted him high like Arizona did.

^ I donít blame you about McNabb. He was good until he wasnít anymore. I never questioned his talent, but when you see a player that good, yet caves under pressure in the biggest moments, it just breaks your heart.

Sorry about TO. In fairness to him, AB has made him look like a saint, and Iím not talking about the Ainíts lol.

With regard to Wentz, heíll get there. I know heís always been hurt, and thatís just disappointing. Itís something you canít control though. I was honestly rooting for Foles last season because his story was great. He was essentially a reject, but ultimately redeemed himself when he took over Wentzís spot and balled out a couple of seasons ago in the playoffs. And of course, we all know what the eventual result was that year. If he got you guys another SB, then he obviously shouldíve stayed.

Yeah. The Pats have been a thorn in the Steelersí side. I know they play in the AFC North, but the Steelersí ultimate rivals are none other than the Pats. Sure, I hate the Ravens, Bengals, and Browns, but the Steelers have had a lot of success against all of them. The best quarterback in our division is still Big Ben, so Iím not counting out the possibility of another division title just yet. I know that stats donít mean anything if youíre not winning, but he led the league in passing yards last year. If Boswell didnít miss those crucial kicks against the Browns and the Raiders, the Steelers wouldíve won the division last year. They also wouldíve had a bye in the first round of the playoffs. I can also make the argument that the outcome of last seasonís playoffs wouldíve been different. And who knows? Maybe Brown wouldnít have had a hissy fit and would probably still be a Steeler at this point. Of course, that chapter is over though.

Josh Rosen is just another Ryan Tannehill situation for the Dolphins lol. Just kidding. I actually think heís the opposite of Tannehill because Rosen is a natural thrower. The Fins wouldnít want Fitzpatrick to be their only potential starting QB, so he now has someone to compete with in Rosen for the starting job. This, in my opinion, is a great deal for the Fins because Rosen was the 10th overall pick in last yearís draft, so it was a steal. As for the Cards, they got Kyler Murray, so it only makes sense for them to trade Rosen. Iím sure they didnít put much thought into what they were getting in return because they kinda had the itch to get Rosen off their hands. My issue with this is that the Patsies have another toy to play with. They just keep coming their way lol. This move officially increases the Patsí chances of beating the Fins in Miami lol.

^ If Alshon Jeffrey didn't drop that pass in NO O really believe we would have gone to the Super Bowl. We just beat the Rams and we own them. Losing LG Brandon Brookes hurt badly too in that game and Brandon Graham not recovering the fumble. I better stop going on and on lol

Yeah the Fins got a great deal from the money aspect. The Cards are picking up his $10 million bonus so the Fins owe him just over $3 mil the next few years. Idk how he will be cuz I didn't think he was so good coming out of UCLA. Idk how Kyler Murray will be. I will lean towards bust. Its such a crap shoot when it comes to draft picks.

Oh and you are right about AB...he never did sit ups in the driveway lol Of social media was popular back then TOs ego would have even been more through the roof lol

^ I know, right? Lots of what-ifs! I try not to get too caught up with them, but itís hard to let them go. Oh manÖ

Yeah. I donít get overly excited for the draft in general. The top prospects are great to watch, but you donít really know how theyíll perform at the pro level until theyíve made the transition. One thing Iíve learned is to keep your expectations low.

Uh-huh! Iím sure the talking heads would feast on TO if social media was already a hit back then ó even more so than when social media wasnít around lol

The Detroit Lions do the Lions thing. They need a good corner. Greedy Williams was there waiting to be picked and will be at least a good CB if not really good. So what do the Lions do? They take a no-name LB in the second round, a guy who would still have been there in the third round if not in the fourth.

One thing I can't stand is when the "experts" grade the draft hours after it ends. Its so dumb. You can't grade a draft for at least 5 years. I like the first two rounds but then after that Idk who most guys are. Mini camps start soon and now we are in the deadest time for the NFL until training camps open in late July.

^ By my standards, I normally wait 3 years to fully evaluate a player coming from the draft. If he doesnít live up to his potential based on the scouting reports in year one, I can tolerate that. Heís a rookie after all. If he makes a little bit of improvement and gives an okay but less than remarkable performance in year two, Iím still fine with that. I expect him to be much better the following year, however. If he shows no sign of improvement whatsoever in year three, then heís gotta start looking for a new career or find a team that will accept him for what he can or canít do. That said, I canít believe Artie Gets Burned and Bum Dupree are still on the Steelersí roster. Smh

Yeah. All we can do is waitÖ

****
Gino Marchetti, one of the most feared defensive ends in pro football history, who helped lead the Baltimore Colts to two consecutive National Football League championships ó including a 1958 overtime victory over the New York Giants often immortalized as ďthe greatest game ever playedĒ ó died April 29 at a hospital in Paoli, Pa. He was 93.

His death was announced by the Baltimore Ravens. The cause was pneumonia.

Mr. Marchetti, who fought in the Battle of the Bulge during World War II and worked as a bartender before attending college in California, did not play his first professional football game until he was 26. By the time he played his final game in 1966, at 40, he had been credited with redefining the position of defensive end and became one of pro footballís first defensive superstars.

I think it depends on what position a guy plays. You have to give QBs & linemen(particularly offensive) more time than other positions. The other aspect of evaluating a draft is a guy who can't stay healthy is no better than someone who stinks. You can't put either one on the field. As for Dupree, Pitts thought he was useful enough to pick up his 5th year option. Never focused on him enough to know if he is worth it.

^ Interesting. I'm not keeping any hopes up for my Falcons this year. All the talk about us having a Super Bowl roster or us having all the pieces to improve the team. The NFC is just way too loaded with a bunch of talented teams. I understand the Falcons had a lot of injuries to key players last year, but defense wins championships, and the Falcons have only had 2 top 10 scoring defenses since 1998 which is pathetic. We continue to waste Matt Ryan's talent each year, and every time he puts up MVP numbers our defense holds us back.

^ I'm not sure who is going to take the NFC South. At this point and I've thought it for a few years now...Matt Ryan is overrated. One Super Bowl appearance and he puts up numbers but on bad Falcon teams. The one thing I know about the NFC South is that the Saints will miss the post season. Idk if I believe in Atlanta. Cam is also overrated and the Bucs have no QB.

^ Since Matt Ryan has been drafted in 2008. He's had 2 NFC Championship appearances. 1 Super Bowl appearance. Led his franchise to back to back winning seasons for first time in franchise history (and that's with him being injured a few games in 2009). 6 playoff appearances and 3 division titles (including 6 double digit win seasons). Matt Ryan is the only quarterback in NFL history to have all 6 playoff losses to a team who has been to the Super Bowl or won it (2008 Cardinals, 2010 Packers, 2011 Giants, 2012 49ers, 2016 Patriots, 2017 Eagles). Matt Ryan's teams has had mediocre defenses and been in the far bottom half in defensive efficiency most of his career.

Matt Ryan leans more towards the underrated category. He's probably the top of the tier 2 QB's in the league. The only way he'd jump to tier 1 with Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers is if he wins a Super Bowl title. The closest Matt Ryan got his teams to winning a Super Bowl was in 2012 and 2016. In 2012 we were robbed against the 49ers in the NFC Championship but of course the media didn't care about that one like they cared about the Saints later on, then in 2016, well.... we all know that one lol, but I blame our OC Kyle Shannan for that collapse than Matt Ryan.

Offense wins games and sells tickets but defense wins championships. I don't understand why fans and analysts don't understand this. The Giants of 2007 and 2011 were more about their defense than their offense, even tho Eli Manning got it done in clutch time, to have a defense that stopped a 16-0 team and the greatest offense of all time with Tom Brady and Randy Moss to only 14 points, and you only needed 17 points to win? Come on now. The Ravens defenses over the past decade have been absolutely elite and high in defensive efficiency rating, which is why the Ravens won that Super Bowl in 2012 (or February 2013) because of Ray Lewis and his squad. What's happened to the Ravens since then? What happened to Joe Flacco after that? The real Joe Flacco was exposed. Just telling you like it is. Drew Brees would never have the respect if it wasn't for the Bounty Gate and the Saints cheating against the Vikings in 2009, and karma came back to bite their asses against the Rams 9 seasons later.

People will come up with the dumb narrative that Tony Romo is (or was) better than Matt Ryan, and I'm like WTF? You'd have to be delusional to believe that. The only reason Tony Romo got a lot of praise is because he played for the Dallas Cowboys, America's team, while Matt Ryan plays in Atlanta, and Atlanta/Georgia sports don't get respect because of our historical failures which goes decades back, even in college football, not just the pro sports teams. It's a long story. Tony Romo only had 2 playoff wins which were in the wildcard, never got past the divisional round (the Cowboys haven't been to the NFC championship since the 1995 season). That doesn't compare to what Matt Ryan has done the past 11 seasons.

Your assessment of Matt Ryan feels just about right to me. Think he is really good, not great. Falcons have been fortunate to have him under center all these years. Think I hold a somewhat higher opinion of Romo than you. We have all seen great QBs that never won a championship (Marino/Fouts) & mediocre ones that have(Dilfer & co.). Championships are one yardstick for measuring a QB, but only one.

^^ Matt Ryan is certainly better than Romo. Romo put up good numbers but won two playoff games...big whoop. I'm just not a Matt Ryan guy. If he was a great player he would raise his level and make up for a poor defense. You can give me all his stats until you are blue in the face but the bottom line is still 1-1 in the NFC Title game and 0-1 in the Super Bowl. I hate Donovan McNabb and his bottom line was 1-4 and 0-1 and is known as a choker in big games. Idk if I consider Ryan a choker but he is like McNabb...a good player, not a great player.

Carson Wentz (for better or worse) will be with the Eagles through 2024. He signed a 4 year $128 million deal with a record (and insane) $107 million guaranteed. I would have waited to do an extension cuz if he gets hurt again in 2019 this will be one of if not the worst contract in the history of Philadelphia sports. Also if he has a terrible year its not a good look either. If there wasn't pressure on Wentz before now the pressure increased by 100%.

Let's face it, this deal was inevitable as soon as they let Nick Foles walk. Of course, you can't help but be concerned about the possibility of injury with him. However, the Eagles are locking up a QB with HUGE potential for 5 more years (in addition to this upcoming season)...and he's only 26 years old. As a SportsCenter graphic this hour showed, most of the recent QB mega deals have been given to guys who are at or over the age of 30 at the time of signing. The next guy up for one of these is Dak Prescott...and I honestly believe he deserves it.

It comes out to 27+ million per year over the 6. Wentz gets huge guarantee & Eagles get a top QB for a little less than top of the market money.

I always hate the word potential in relation to an athlete. We will see what happens this coming season. Dak Prescott does not deserve a massive contract like this at all imo...that said he will get one which is absurd. What has he accomplished? Nothing. You can make the same case about Wentz since he has never started a playoff game but I would much rather have Wentz moving forward.

You know what's so crazy? Nick Foles is responsible for ALL of the Philadelphia Eagles' playoff starts since 2013, and granted, while the Eagles were out of the playoffs 3 years in a row between 2014-2016, between 2013-2018 Nick Foles and the Eagles were undefeated against EVERY team in the playoffs except for the Saints both times. The first Nick Foles start at home vs the Saints in 2013 (January 2014) and the last Nick Foles' start on the road in New Orleans in 2018 (January 2019). Drew Brees went to the same high school as Nick Foles. Westlake High School from Austin, Texas. It's kinda like you were perfect against every team except for older mentor who played QB from your same high school.

Good news for the Kansas City Chiefs:

Even with Tyreek Hill able to play, I do wonder if the Chiefs' offense will take a step back this season. As great as it was last year, there was a noticeable decline when they lost RB Kareem Hunt.

I'm willing to wager he's healthy enough to start in, oh, 33 games over the next six years, giving him a sweet lil $3.87M per game played. Well played, Carson's Agent! Well played indeed.

No doubt it's a risky business. Alex Smith got 55 million dollars guaranteed. Turned out to be mighty expensive for the Redskins. You may be right. The cliche is time will tell.

Hill got off with a slap on the wrist. The phone call recordings are very damning and with his history of domestic abuse (going back to college) he should have gotten at least a two game suspension. As for the football side of it I've read rumors that the Cheifs are trying to trade him.

That's 5.5 games per season, if that's the case (which its absurd and won't happen) the Eagles would have to cut him if he can't stay healthy. If he gets hurt again this season, then he is injury prone.
