    Hi,

    First post here but long time lurker. I'm wondering if there will be a time this season that BB decides he needs to start practising onside kicks. Would that happen?

    For what? For the same reason why we're practising 4th downs. We narrowly won against the colts. We were down 2 possessions in the 4th quarter but kudos to the defence for stopping Manning. I'm just wondering if it's a play that needs practising on gameday.

    Why, for the Rats game, of course !

    Patriots may have a very well-rested D.

    that reminds me..andy reid has a habit of pulling this stunt..he did this against dallas a couple of times. i wont be surprised if he starts the game or the 2nd half with an onside kick.

    I'm also suprised why teams do not try the onside kick when playing us.

    Are you british? It's a good thought, but not something that is typically practiced on gameday. It's really something that the kicker can practice ad nauseum in practice. I'm not sure what is to be gained by doing it in a game, not to mention the fact that it would be a tremendous insult to the Eagles if we did it while ahead by alot.

    How great would it be if we openned the Pats-Jets game with the ball, scored, then made a successful onside kick.

    Nah, I would wait until the second half when we are up 38-0, then each kick make an on-side kick. And can't wait to here the running up the score complaints.

    Um... actually, not technically. 9 possessions that mean anything have been touchdowns, but you forget the kneeldown at the end of the Colts game.
