The Philadelphia Eagles Were Not As Impressive As The Dallas Cowboys

The two most impressive teams in week 1 were likely the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles, but rest assured that the Eagles did not look as strong as the Cowboys did. 

First, the Cowboys played a much stronger team. The Rams are awful and they showed it. A close friend of mine is a big-time Rams fan, and he said he has never seen the team play and look as bad as it did yesterday. That’s 30 years of Rams games knowledge. I watched a few quarters of that game and saw a team with no chemistry and horrible play calling. The Eagles could have had a better challenge from a Division II football team

With that said, they still looked impressive. Donovan McNabb looked great and rookie DeSean Jackson looks to be a factor for opposing teams. But those two are not going to walk all over the Cowboys defense.

Sure, we saw some holes in the secondary; Braylon Edwards was wide open for a deep touchdown that he dropped. There was also an end zone play that was not covered well and should have been a touchdown, but that too was dropped. 

The keys to beating the Eagles though is putting pressure–and a lot of it–on McNabb, and stopping Brian Westbrook, who has had great games over the Cowboys. If the Cowboys can do one of the two, they have a good chance of dominating another team. Obviously, we’ll delve into this match up a lot more this week.
