Interesting tidbits

Recommended Posts

Another reason the Eagles have a shot is because they are still playing, and since they are playing in the Divisional round that means that have a 50/50 shot winning since only 2 teams will be on the field.

Payton has played against and scheamed against Johnson 2x a year for 5 yrs.

 

 

but hasn't Johnson also played against and schemed against a Payton led offense 2 x per year for the last 5 years?

 

How's that an advantage either way?

Have you convinced yourself 100% yet? Could you call Vegas because they think NO wins by 5... :D

 

 

I'm not a gambling man, per se (except FF), but aren't the lines set more on what Vegas thinks the public thinks/will do? Setting the line to entice action on both sides so as not to get too much on one or the other? I didn't think they were predictions of outcome. :D

I actually agree that Payton kinda has JJs number. He seems to know JJ better than anyone else in the league (Fox may be close). That said, JJ knows him very well too. It'll be a chess match for sure. Damn, can't believe I have to wait until 8:00 tonight!

Sorry already gave a lesson in betting 101, however here's the short version. Vegas sets the lines by handicapping the game not the bettors. If they set the line correctly then they will likely have action on both sides. Most gamblers bet with their wallet not their team spirit. :D

Thanks...I really didn't know what their "thinking" was on setting lines, but I had heard what I posted. Carry on...

I think the fact that Philly finally has a qb that can handle post season pressure will play big in this game..If the Eagles continue this great run they have been on it just shows that is all they ever needed all these years

If it means anything a friend of mine that is going down as a Saints fan has already placed his bet on the Eagles. This is usually not a good sign for the Eagles when the home team fans bet on the visitor.

Saints a much improved team than what the Eagles faced in week 6, much has been said about the history and never did this and that, but hey it has to start somewhere for first and this is as good as a time as any.

 

 

Really?

 

After the Saints beat the Eagles in Week 6, they went 5-5 the rest of the way.

 

Not sure how you can say they are better now than they were then....they were 5-1, and from there, went .500 the rest of the way, losing 4 of 5 at home, including a 16-10 home loss to the Deadskins.

 

Please explain how they are better now.

Exactly. Why the Lions ever let a gem like Garcia go is beyond me. He's going to go out and prove Rush Limbaugh's point a few years too late. :D

Bush is 20x better now than he was back then, you must be an accountant the way you spin the numbers to validate your "weak" points.

 

Look at what Bush was doing back then compared to what is is doing and WILL do tonight!!!

 

Philly is on a roll, they are HOT, they are on fire....and they are WAY over-due for a beat down!!! They will get that, they won't be able to hear it...just feel it. We will see how Garcia does when he is under center, trying to get a snap off......ask Brady Quinn how fun that is.....

Yeah....you right...Philly has soooooooo much going for them other than Westbrook...ha!! What a joke, your best receiver is an X Saint....for a reason!!! He can't catch the ball and is hurt every other play...... Talk about a one-man-show....take Westy off your team and you would be in a battle with Oakland for the number one pick...come again you say?....oh, I'm comin and i'm bringing neon dion and his 27 nicknames with me!!!

 

Good luck tonight...we will celebrate with some "Eagle" Gumbo after the game.......
