Don't give in, Dave!

The same thing happened last year, only then he kept posting about how much McNabb sucked and that the Redskins would win the East. We read it so many times that I think we all believed it, and everyone on the SCMB overrated Washington in our pre-season rankings -- all eight people who predicted records had them over the 7-9 they actually finished, and most of us had them in double digits. That doesn't even include Anthony's 12-4 prediction, posted in another thread.

The Eagles haven't really lost anyone except Douglas and Mitchell, but last time around they lost Trotter and (effectively) Buckhalter and people thought the sky was falling. It didn't happen, even when McNabb went down*. Bet on the Eagles again this year.

As for flops, I think the 49ers could be set up for a fall.

* If you scroll down a bit you'll come to the classic quote "The choices for the Eagles are now obvious: Either they sign Elvis Grbac or face a certain 7-9 finish."
