It’s do or die for the Philadelphia Eagles this week. They got some good news when they heard that Tony Romo is out for Sunday’s game and Kyle Orton will be filling the position of quarterback. Actually this could be bad news for the Eagles. They got caught snoozing and were as flat as a pancake against the Minnesota Vikings when they took them too lightly. Lets hope they don’t sleep through this game as well. They can’t let themselves think the way most fans are that this will be an easy game. It can’t be stressed enough that they need to show up against the Cowboys or the game could be over before you can get comfortable with a bowl of popcorn and a brewski in your recliner. The Eagles take on the Cowboys at 8:30 p.m. Sunday night in Texas
The New York Jets have the opportunity to play for coach Rex Ryan’s job. If they win, they will be 8-8 for the season, a record that was unthinkable back in September. Since the ownership didn’t really give Rex Ryan enough talent to work with, most fans think he should be back. Other motivations to win are that they can be a spoiler for one of their division rivals, the Miami Dolphins. And with an uncertain future, the players are auditioning for the other 31 NFL teams in case they are not back with the Jets next season. The Jets face the Dolphins in an away game Sunday at 1:00 p.m.
The New York Giants have a similar situation as they face the Washington Redskins at home on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.. There may be a lot of changes next year so the players want other teams to see that their value. It’s a toss up if coach Tom Coughlin will be back but he probably will. You can’t discount his 2 Super Bowl wins and overall record. This was basically a lost season for the Giants and Eli Manning had a horrible go of it with a ridiculous amount of interceptions. Like the Jets, the Giants lack depth and need 2nd and 3rd stringers that will pick up the slack so the team doesn’t miss a beat. The Giants are looking at a lot of changes in the off season.
