2010 NFL Week 5 Picks

So there was this post on Philly.com today about how the Eagles are so terrible, and it either means the coaches are awful or the team has no talent.

Here's a hypothesis: the team's average age is 15. They're not terrible - the coaches aren't the worst since Bum Phillips - they're YOUNG. Many of our starters are within their first couple of years in the NFL. Yeah, no one wants to say "rebuilding" but that's what we're doing.

Oh - and Sunday's game? We don't do well historically in prime time or going west, and we're missing a lot of guys (Vick, Asante Samuel, Riley Cooper, in addition to the guys who are out for the season) - and LeSean McCoy is playing with a broken rib. And we're terrible against the run - ever heard of a guy named Frank Gore?

Yes, I'm calling 49ers. They have to win sometime.

Get the rest at Snarkin' the NFL.
