Mason Crosby's dramatic fall is pretty crazy this year

If Martellus Bennett is hurt, it's on Tom Coughlin. Passing when it is 38-10

No question.

Additionally, based on some of the comments here...some people actually believe this Baltimore team isn't as good as the Steelers...hmph...to each his own I guess...

If both teams are completely healthy I'd pick the Steelers. If Ben was healthy I'd pick the Steelers, but currently the Ravens are doing the things the Steelers aren't doing to win games.

the gap has widened between roethlisberger and flacco this year. enough that, when healthy, the steelers are definitely better.

The Steelers are a mess right now and they may be in trouble for a couple of years. After this year, Wallace and Mendenhall are both likely gone. Ben is over 30 and has nothing behind him to be a band aid. The OL appears to be getting better, but we still haven't seen DeCastro in action and Adams looks to be hurt now. The RB situation looks disasterous. The defense could be without all of the following; Foote, Harrison, Kiesel, Hampton, Lewis. There is no young depth on this team. Hood seems to be out of place playing 2 gaps. Worilds is a huge question. There is nothing at ILB. No young safety help for when Polamalu gets hurt again and Clark gives himself another concussion. Woodley shows up out of shape and ends up with chronic hamstring problems because of it and can't stay on the field. They are in need of a huge infusion of young talent. The bigger thing they need is discipline. Tomlin allows them to continually be unprepared for teams that are worse than they are and the penalties are out of control. I think that about sums up what I see right now.

DID YOU KNOW: The Phillies have won a game more recently than the Eagles. The Eagles last won on Sept. 30, the Phillies last won on Oct. 1.

The hub's watching his Eagles and I hear a lot of LOLing. Philly fans are entertaining as hell when they're piling on their own teams.

Why not? It's not like they have anything to lose.

Not saying that Babin wasn't largely to blame for his failures in Philly this year, but it is absolutely incredible just how systemic the disaster is in the Eagles organization. Starting with Jim Washburn's horrific wide-9 scheme that has been utterly exploited. Nnamdi and DRC looking like lost babes in the secondary, not helped by their two bad safeties. Bad offensive playcalling. Horrible personnel decisions. Did you know that since the Eagles fired Juan Castillo, opposing QBs are something like 14 TDs, 0 INT, and a 75% or so completion percentage? I'm pretty sure every single QB they have faced since the bye has had a QB rating over 120.

It's pretty much a foregone conclusion that Andy Reid is a goner, but this organization is in bad, bad shape. And Nick Foles doesn't exactly appear to be the answer.
