That's the spirit!!!
14-2, right back in the Super Bowl again! I fully believe this 100%!
2014 was nowhere near a decade ago. That was a good defense.
Next year's schedule will again yield defensive "fool's gold" for the "but they were the #4 defense (or whatever it was) in points allowed!" crowd.
Based on historical performance I see only 6 teams with a real shot of going for, say, 24+ points vs the Patriots - GB, Hou, KC, Ind (depending on Luck), Pit, and Det...every other opponent is more likely to be in the 10-20 point range. I know this is WAY to early to get into specifics, but as I said, given history - and the way the NFL makes the schedule - the Pats are pretty much guaranteed a home AFC E game the last 2 weeks of the season vs Mia, Buf, or NYJ and they'll probably come close to pitching a shutout given the opponent will likely be playing for draft position.
I would love a rematch against this same Eagles team. I think the results would be different.
We only play 15 games next year?
Please Lord Jesus give us a legitimate defense this year.....please....ain't nobody want no fools gold....
