Overall this is not a bad schedule. The Eagles could go 4-0 right of the bat. The Giants and Redskins are the only two games to worry about there. Although the Redskins are coming to Philly for the first game of the season, on a Monday night, I think they can take that game. After that they have their bye week. The Giants will be a totally different team without Tiki Barber. Tiki has been the source of many problems for Eagles for years and now he is finally gone. The next four games could go either way. They could be 4-4 after this run. You have the Jets. Who could be one of the top teams in the AFC next year. Next the Eagles host the Bears. Now the Bears crawled into the Super Bowl last season and this could game could be a lot easier than it looks on paper. The Bears are going into the season again with Rex Grossman. They have no Thomas Jones, Cedric Benson is a question mark. On the defensive side they will be without Lance Briggs and most likely Tank Johnson. After that the Eagles travel to Minnesota to face our old friend Brad Childress. Andy Reid helped Childress get where he is at. Now can the student beat the teacher, its possible. But don't forget, Obi beat Anakin. The Vikings don't look to bad on paper and I would imagine after the draft they will look better. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Vikings make a move before training camp. The Eagles then return home to face Homo Romo and temper tantrum T.O. This is a Sunday night game which gives Eagles fans an extra 7 hours to drink and get ready to heckle T.O. for 4 hours. With this being a home game at night, I'd chalk it up as a win looking at it on paper. So that's the first 8 games. I can see them going 7-1 losing either the Jets game or the Vikings game. The last 8 games seems to be a lot harder. They go face the Redskins in week 10. Not a hard game, but they could lose this game. Next they take on the Dolphins at home. Win. Now comes what could be a Super Bowl preview. Yea I said it, Super Bowl baby. The Eagles go to Foxboro to face the Patriots. How sweet it would be to win this game. But I'd have the Eagles as big underdog here. The Eagles then get two home games versus the Seahawks and Giants. I could see losing one of those games, but not both. Then they have a road trip going to Dallas then New Orleans. I can see losing the Dallas game but I think the Saints game has revenge written all over it. Looking at the Saints schedule this game could make or break their playoff hopes. The Eagles alst game comes against the Bills. Even our back-ups could beat the Bills.
