Eagles-49ers Prediction

‘Tis the season for snow covered fields and bitter cold temperatures. Who knows what the playing surface will look like at 4:15pm after the blizzard of ’09 is done smacking the Northeast. Could be fine, or it could be a slippery mess.

Whatever the case, the Eagles have to be sharp to put away a feisty Niners team. Unless there are gusting winds, the Birds will continue to chuck it 60% or more. Despite a solid effort versus the vaunted Cardinals last Monday night, the San Fran secondary is vulnerable to big plays.

Sounds like a perfect recipe for DeSean Jackson, but for some strange reason I think this will be a Shady/Weaver type game. I also believe a proud McDermott defense will bounce back strong after last week’s horrid showing. Frank Gore is a chore to handle and Vernon Davis has been a beast. It won’t matter.

Eagles D controls this one. McNabb will be efficient.

    Shame this game isn’t the first half of a #3 seed clinching experience. New Orleans losing to Dallas last night really kills the birds. Now the Redskins defeat of the Cowboys coupled with Eagles wins over San Fran and Denver will be the path to make the game against Dallas a bye week. We DO NOT need the trouble of having to play starters in the final game. Thanks again to those bums in New Orleans.

  • Mike

    There is no way the Dallas game will ever be a bye week. There is nothing more important to the Eagles than beating Dallas in either the regular season or post season.

  • Mostel

    I’d disagree. Andy Reid will ALWAYS sit guys if the game doesn’t count. Dallas needs to be a bye week so we can be extra rested for hosting Dallas and/or the Giants on Wild Card weekend. We’ll need a full effort then!

    i hate dallas more than anything else, but i’d find even better than beating dallas would be feeling indifference b/c its all locked up.

  • Mostel

    The is exactly my point. I’d really rather just make a joke out of that game and kick some Cowboy butt the next weekend. Then maybe slap the Vikings if possible.

  • bula

    did big red find the microphone you hid in his office. we didn’t get any secret meetings this week

  • Scott Tunstall
