Eagles vs. Saints: Can the Eagles End Their Struggles?

The Philadelphia Eagles were coming in as huge NFC East contenders and also a huge shot at the playoffs in the NFC, though so far, it has slipped away. The Eagles have recorded 17 turnovers through 7 games, 11 coming from Michael Vick. Vick has lost 3 fumbles and 8 INTs this season. Can they change that? We shall wait…and see…

Keys to Winning

Eagles:

#1: Contain Drew Brees

Brees is a QB who loves to take his time in the pocket. He hasn’t been sacked many times, though if Philadelphia wants a chance to win, then the D must use some type of blitz-coverage type of package for a chance to win. The Eagles have the best defense in the NFL, so the Eagles could force a lot of punts and field goals, and definitely not a lot of touchdowns or 3rd down conversions in this game.

#2: Limit Turnovers!!!

JUST LIMIT TURNOVERS!!! The Eagles offense have been struggling due to turnovers. Vick needs to take his time to find a receiver instead of just throw the ball half a second later.

Saints:

#1: Force Turnovers

The Saints have to think total opposite of what the Eagles offense is thinking. FORCE TURNOVERS, no matter what type of circumstances!!!

#2: Run the Ball Effectively

The New Orleans Saints have to make adjustments to their offensive line when running the ball in this game. The Eagles are one of the best run defenses in the league thanks to Middle Linebackers Demeco Ryans and Jamar Chaney, and Defensive End Trent Cole. Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas will have a hard time running the ball. New Orleans Saints Offensive Lineman, make adjustments as soon as possible.

My call: The Eagles will FINALLY end their struggles and should win big. The final score after 60 minutes of play: Eagles 38, Saints 26

When: Monday, November 5th, 2012; 8:30pm

Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana, United States of America, Home of the New Orleans Saints

Weather: Indoor Stadium (Closed Roof Dome)

Spread: Eagles win by 12 points

Is Tebow-mania Nearing?

Tonight will be the game where the Jets might have to sit Sanchez out, so Tebow will probably be able to play most of this game. Here are my predictions for Tebow, and what he needs to do to help his team beat the powerful Houston Texans.

If I’m the coach of the New York Jets, I’d tell Tebow that he needs to throw moment he finds an open receiver, and not try to run the ball that much. John Fox, the Broncos coach, had told this to Tebow many times, and still Tebow hasn’t found enough success ever since he left the University of Florida. I would only tell Tebow to run if it is play action in the shotgun, and the defense doesn’t seem like they’re going to blitz. Tebow should also set up a lot of screenplays, since he has had lots of success with that play.

My expectations for Tebow (if he were to follow this advice):

Tebow’s stats:

19-20, 228 passing yards, 1 TD, 0 INTs, 18 carries, 108 yards, 2 TDs, 0 FUMs

My expectations for Tebow (if he wouldn’t follow this advice):

Tebow’s stats:

8-20, 88 passing yards, 0 TDs, 4 INTs, 20 carries, 80 yards, 1 TD, 1 FUM

I think that if Tebow wants to win, he should follow this advice.

My call: Tebow shall follow this advice given, and Tebowmania survives Arian Foster and Co. in a huge comeback in the 4th quarter. The Jets D might struggle, though Tebow knows how to roll and rally in the 4th. It will be a well-matched game. I would love to see Jets win with final second field goal 24-21.
