Quote from: Geowhizzer on February 15, 2023, 10:14:38 AMOne thing that I've finally realized as I've aged: It's a football game. Once it was over, it was over.Disappointing, yes. Demoralizing, no. There's too much other more important stuff in the world to let a football game be what breaks your spirit.
QuoteThe Eagles have played 400 games since 2000. Among that sample, the defensive performance in the Super Bowl ranked:* 391st in EPA per drive* 395th in success rate
Quote from: Don Ho on February 17, 2023, 01:28:53 AMI manned up and watched the second half. Good God! The d line was manhandled. And Juju was going to score on that Bradburry hold. At first I thought it was uncatchable but no way, it was a great pass, Juju catches that he's not held, basically game over. This defesnive unit padded up stats against much inferior competition during the season. I atually feel a little better now after watching. Birds met their match on Sunday. Hurts kept them in this game.
Quote from: ice grillin you on February 17, 2023, 06:51:33 AMthey werent great by any definition or number but considering the competition field conditions and andy reid off a bye i dont think giving up 28 pts to patrick mahomes is a once in a generation bad performance... it wasnt even their worst defensive showing this season...i think people had excessive expectations after playing daniel jones and whatever san fran had and two weeks of hearing how many sacks they had this season
