Two days ago I posted an article proclaiming the Philadelphia Eagles will sweep the Washington Redskins this season. I had a couple of comments that did not appreciate the article. However, I believe they will beat them both games. My argument was that the Redskins were terrible last season. A point was brought up that the Eagles’ 2012 was pretty bad and the following season they won the division. Why could’t the Redskins do the same? Well, read below and I will tell you why the Eagles will sweep.
Eagles’ 2012 season was abysmal. The difference is the Eagles had quarterback Michael Vick who had obviously lost his way that season. In the ten games he played he threw ten interceptions, had four fumbles with twelve touchdowns. His passer rating was 78.1. Eagles’ 2013 Season found quarterback Nick Foles at the helm. In the 13 games he played he three 27 touchdowns, two interceptions, two fumbles and a passer rating of 119.2. So you cannot compare the two seasons because they had different quarterbacks and different coaches. Apples and oranges there.
Griffin’s season, the same quarterback for both seasons, were very different. Injury or not, he was bad in 2013. He threw 16 touchdowns, twelve interceptions, six fumbles. His passer rating was 82.2. I don’t think he will be any better this season. He acts like a Diva. He said, “The coach shut me down,” in response to being benched last season. In an interview yesterday he still talks like it happened last week or something. That has Diva written all over it. Can’t move beyond the past. Even DeSean Jackson can’t bail him out from that.
Check out his Twitter account. AND he has his own logo. Who does that? New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has three Super Bowl rings and he doesn’t have a logo. If anyone has earned the right to create their own logo, Brady does. That is a ME attitude.
He will show his true self after three or four games into the season when they have a losing record. Who will he blame then?
What do you think?
Here is today’s poll question.
