Opposition Research: Philadelphia Eagles (Wildcard)

Opposition Research: Philadelphia Eagles (Wildcard)

We'll find out on Sunday whether four months of game film was enough for Dom Capers to crack the secret to the Michael Vick-led Eagles offense.

Opposition Research: Washington Redskins (W5)

Opposition Research: Washington Redskins (W5)

The Washington Redskins love nothing more than to play the spoiler. Can they pull off the upset...and incite panic in Green Bay?

Opposition Research: Philadelphia Eagles (W1)

Opposition Research: Philadelphia Eagles (W1)

Welcome to another edition of Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking a look at the first Packers opponent in the 2010 regular season, the Philadelphia Eagles.  As a programming note, I tried writing something for last week, but it’s awfully hard to write about a meaningless game.  This week, however, IS meaningful, and I must admit…I'm pretty excited.  Heck, I started looking for articles back in July.  But enough about my sad life…let’s take a look at the first match-up in what looks to be a pretty spectacular season.

Opposition Research: Dallas Cowboys (W10)

Opposition Research: Dallas Cowboys (W10)

Welcome to Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking a look at the next Packers opponent, the Dallas Cowboys. At 6-2, the Cowboys are the first ‘real’ team that the Packers have to beat if they are going to be taken seriously by anyone this year. If it were up to me, Dallas would lose on account of the commercialization (read, bastardization) of the team and its players (BAL’s Jim Harbaugh agrees with me). But, since it’s not, let’s take a look at what the Packers are facing in this Week 10 grudge match.

The NFC, Revisited After 9

The NFC, Revisited After 9

So here we are. It’s deep into football season, and I’m so disappointed by how my team is playing that I find myself loath to read any articles on JSOnline.  Lucky for me, I have 31 other teams to write about, right? Three weeks ago, I took a borderline-premature look at the state of the NFC.  Around that time, the prognosticators were beginning to set postseason plans, Giants fans were booking hotel rooms in Miami, and it seemed like a race to the bottom between Tampa Bay and St. Louis.  So, what’s changed?

State of the NFC, After 6

State of the NFC, After 6

After 6 weeks, patterns are beginning to form in the NFC about which teams can expect to compete into next year, and which teams will be out of the race before December.  Of the two undefeated teams, the Saints have a 99-point advantage over their opponents, and, if they can make it past the Dolphins and Falcons, they’ll have a nice three-game cushion (Carolina, St. Louis, and Tampa Bay) before hosting Tom Brady and his 5-TDs-in-the-2nd-quarter.  Sean Payton took $250,000 off his own salary to bring Gregg Williams to New Orleans, and now the Saints defense is scary good (thanks in large part to ex-Packer and – thank goodness – ex-Viking Darren Sharper).  I know he’s not his brother, but if you can hold Eli to a 61.0 passer rating and hold the Giants tandem of Jacobs and Bradshaw to 81 yards total, you’re doing something right.
