Seriously Manny. Who knows. The Eagles Offense was buil around QBs who have a different skill set. Doesn’t mean Eli would not have been as successful but who knows
Yes...

..with that defense and running game no doubt about it...
No chance Eli does this

Foles is a better qb at this point. Eli throws high slants, lost deep throw ability and cant move a lick. Old
Another Manny winner.

Manny being Manny.
Honestly ....

I don't see much difference between what Eli was in 2011 and what he is now, except that he has an O-line that is worse (not that it was "all that" back then, except that he had Bradshaw & Jacobs).

McAdoo (to his credit) improved his footwork and worked to help him increase his percentage by featuring a dink-and-donk offense. The problem - his best receiver targets all went down (as his O-line was still stinking).

So ... you put him behind an O-line like Philly had this year (which he has NEVER had here), I'm positive he would have taken them to the championship game (and very likely beaten Tom again).

open titles that seem silly.

However, my curiosity got the better of me time. My mistake.

one pair of walkie talkies would have been as game changing for Napoleon as an airplane.

Agree. I should have credited those titles to old SNL skits....which they all were I always enjoyed those skits and as a history buff, also found them to be interesting imponderables.
Manny I apologize

For my previous snide remark. Having a rough morning and you were con isn't target to dis oN

I get your question. I don t think they win with Eli.

Foles played the last two games at a level few quarterbacks play.
I have to say with certainty

Of course they win with Eli  
BBelle21 : 2/8/2018 11:47 am : link
And Foles never played his playoff run better than Eli did during his playoff runs. Anyone really believe Foles overcomes that 49er defense in the NFCC game? Come on now.
