With the NFL season nearly upon us, what are your predictions for the Eagles season? Do you see Carson Wentz as having a MVP-caliber season?

and I have an sig bet in mind, if you're interested.

I don't really have predictions because Philly has been the most injury riddled team for 2 years in a row. Beyond that I think Philly is clearly the most talented team in football and if they can stay relatively healthy we should coast to a ring. Seriously when I look unit to unit we have an elite QB, below average but decent RBs, the best offensive line, the best WR/TE group, the best defensive line, a top 10 LB group, and a bottom 10 DB group. Really that's one weakness and it's one we had when we won it all, meanwhile our strengths are better and our offense should be on another level.

I think Wentz was close enough to MVP-caliber last year when he played even with a fractured back so there's no doubt in my mind he'll be MVP caliber if healthy.

I'm down for a sig bet any time too, no way the baby GOAT let's me down if Desean is healthy.

I think the Vikings have the best WR/Te's but our O-line is trash.

Honestly, when is the last time we had a good offensive line? 2012? 2009?

WASHINGTON (AP) — A top Trump administration official said Tuesday that the famous inscription on the Statue of Liberty welcoming immigrants into the country is about “people coming from Europe” and that America is looking to receive migrants “who can stand on their own two feet.”

The comments from Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, came a day after the Trump administration announced it would seek to deny green cards to migrants who seek Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers or other forms of public assistance. The move — and Cuccinelli’s defense — prompted an outcry from Democrats and immigration advocates who said the policy would favor wealthier immigrants and disadvantage those from poorer countries in Latin America and Africa.

Thielen and Diggs are amazing especially with Rudolph but the Eagles are waaaaay better. Not even really close.

Sure you might have a better duo in those two but Ertz and Alshon are a top tier duo, then we have Agholor, Desean, JJAW (rookie but look up what he did in college he was the best redzone threat in the nation), and Godert backing those two. 2 possession guys, a precise route runner, a great 6th blocker and good pass catcher, the GOAT deep WR ever, and a top tier slot receiver is an amazing receiving corp. Most upgraded unit on the team by far, Desean alone is going to make a huge difference being a deep threat.

I'm just following the facts man. :lol: How many other 32 year old WRs have led the league in YPC (he's led the league 3 of the last 5 seasons too)?

Look man, Randy is a nice 2nd place, but he had Brady, Cunningham, and Culpepper throwing bombs. Desean has really only had Vick for 2 years, and every other QB he's had has had a meh at best arm. Desean has more deep TDs than anyone else ever while only having a great deep QB once. Even last year at 32 he hit 20 plus MPH on more touches than any WR outside of Tyreke Hill who had way more touches (per touch he led the league).

Randy has a better jump ball undeniably but no one tracks the ball like Desean.

Any takes on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood? Saw it on opening night (Europe) last week and my first take away is it could be Tarantino’s best movie. I’ll need some more time to digest it but it’s amazing how many things this movie did right.

I didn't love it personally. I rewatched some of Tarantino's stuff and I think Resivor Dogs and Pulp Fiction were better by a decent amount.

Fwiw, Desean also had two years of Donovan McNabb, and let's not act like Donovan didn't have a ****ing cannon for an arm. Jameis Winston has a missle-launcher for an arm too. Desean has played with plenty of strong-armed quarterbacks.

I get that. After Basterds I found his next two movies pretty disappointing; Django had some high heights but the pacing was weird and then ending was a drag and Hateful Eight I just didn’t enjoy and have only watched once (3 hour runtime for a movie with 1 setting doesn’t help).

Something about Hollywood just really worked for me. I think it’s his funniest movie and he got some of the best performances of their careers out of Leo and Pitt. I thought the pacing was fantastic and every scene left me feeling something big. And I think it’s a movie that will grow better with time and repeat viewings.

Pulp Fiction is very close to a perfect movie but I find the machine-gun dialogue of his early films takes me out of the experience a little bit (much bigger problem for Dogs than Fiction). Every character feels a little too clever for their own good and Tarantino’s own voice comes through in every line of dialogue in a way it doesn’t in Hollywood. These are nitpicks though, all great movies obviously.

McNabb was known for his underthrows and James can't aim to save his life. Look at the production he gets from Desean vs the production Fitz gets. Throwing it far towards the safety is useless. Vick is the only great deep passer Desean ever played with, even Wentz has a meh deep ball.
