Eagles’ Fans Calm Before The Storm

Come the week of draft time theres not much else to do other than speculate. Everyone is just doing their homework and taking their wildest guesses as to who, what, when, where, and why their team should take so and so player. This year we see an abundance of talent, more than what we’ve seen in a couple of years so good luck with successfully guessing which player each team will pick. As to the draft overall its an exciting thing to prepare for, and all of us have been ever since the NFL Combine ended. The last 2 days before the draft I’ve learned to ignore a lot of these speculations and just wait to see for myself on who the teams will pick. Past years have proven a substantial am0unt of what the “Top Analysts” say are a lot of the time not true (Which makes draft preparations all the more mysterious).

I haven’t been this excited for a draft in years and hopefully everyone reading feels the same way. May the Eagles make all the right choices and help us inch closer to our first Lombardi Trophy.

    Hi, Antonio. A Flyers-Rangers question for you: are/were the Rangers just that more talented of a team than the Flyers, or were they just better coached when it counted the most?

    im not sure on better coached
    i think the rangers are a liiiiitle better talent wise yes
    but the glaring difference for me was the goalies

    Flyers had troubles with both of theirs
    obviously some had good games but then had to switch to the other, while for the rangers henrik was (for the most part) consistent
    And rangers were able to pull the series out while have NO power play goals (Which honestly no matter what team im a fan of) im baffled we can win a series being so terrible on power plays haha
    Flyers shouldve taken advantage of that but henrik just won the goalie showdown I think
