Yeah the Eagles are 1-2 but they are still a very good team. So if we beat them, where does that put us?? Are we still going to be considered a bottom feeder who got lucky or are we going to be considered a legitimate team? I think this game is huge for us. I hope people keep writing us off and we fly under the radar. But if we win...
I think we'll get some real respect if we win. The problem is, it will be very unlikely that we walk away with a W. We don't match-up well. If the OL can prove that "they don't suck" we will have a shot, but that is a big IF.
How do we not match up well?! Because of their "team speed"? That's all I keep hearing about the Eagles...put it this way, they wont be able to run on the Niners. That means they become 1 dimensional, and everyone knows Vick isn't very good carrying the team on his own, he ends up trying too hard, and fails.
Now can the Eagles D match up with the 49ers offense? People will argue "they have elite corners" but how has that worked for em? 2 losses. They are 1-2 for a reason.
And plus Navarro Bowman already said..."We feel we have a 'Dream Team' over here (on defense), also."
