No they're not. Through three games, only two other teams have allowed more yards on the ground than Philly. That said, their pass defense is still solid (ranked 10th in fewest yards allowed). Minus Vick (and even with him), I think they're vulnerable but we have to start playing sound football to have a chance.

If the same o-line from yesterday shows up in Philly, it'll be a long day.

Philly leads the league in sacks.
Trent Cole is gonna own Joe Staley unless Staley greatly improves his technique and learns to keep his pad level down. Cole is fast and strong, and looks like the kinda guy who has routinely beaten Staley this year. Maybe time for Alex Boone to see some playing time at LT?
Gore/Hunter 50/50 carries. Do it!

Hunter 100%. Gore is nicked up and hasn't done anything this year. His days are behind him. Its Hunter time!

as of today, FOX will actually be showing the game in my area. It's the ONLY morning game on FOX, so maybe that's why. But I"m still not 100% sure. Chances are they'll choose to only show the PM game.
Official word from FOX is that they were completely unaware that they'd be showing the game in whatever part of Canada/Mexico/Los Angeles/Iceland where you presently reside. Based on your post, they're absolutely gonna take the game off the air an only show the PM game.

And they're getting their most obnoxious broadcasting crew to work that game, just for you. (I'd tell you which crew, but I don't know which is most obnoxious.) (Maybe they'll have the Niner's preseason crew--Dennis O'Donkey, et al.--work the game, to make it less enjoyable just for you.)
Now that Vick is out, I switched my Pick 'em to the Niners upsetting the Eagles. Why? I'm expecting our front 7 to put enough pressure on their back up QB and our secondary to hold them to only a couple of TDs the entire game. Wishful thinking yes, but I expect the Niners to have another game-manager type performance from AS and less runs up the middle, more sweeps and counters now that Hunter may be getting more carries with Gore hurt. And I look forward to Akers hitting all his FGs against his former team. This will be ugly (our OL will give up another 4-5 sacks), defensive and most likely low-scoring. Niners win 20-17.

BTW, I was thinking the Eagles were favored to reach the SB this year, but not anymore (Packers are favored).

not worried, we'll just bring in extra linemen as tight ends.

Staley looks like he hasn't recovered fully from his injury, he doesn't look as strong at the point of attack as before.

At Eagles Coach Andy Reid's press conference. He says it turns out Vick has a "hand contusion," not a break

Reid says whether Michael Vick plays on Sunday depends on how the swelling in Vick's hand goes over the next few days

I know, the Razor and Mr. T!

Plus JT the Brick working the sidelines. (Is it just me, or does he bear a striking resemblence to Kim whatshername that works the sidelines for Niner preseason games?)

You'd have people destroying their TV sets by halftime, irrespective of the score.

We should be 3-0.

Yeah, Staley used to get beat once in awhile, early in a game, then he'd come back and play well. Now he's just getting bullrushed and beaten routinely.

Trent Cole has a nonstop motor and a straight ahead bull rush, and he is going to push Staley back on every play unless Staley fixes whatever the problem is asap. Its my biggest nightmare for this game.
