Eagles-Cowboys: The pick

Posted: November 09, 2012

OK, I'VE LEARNED my lesson. Team meetings, pledges to make this the week the season turns around - none of that means anything with this particular group. As Rich Hofmann pointed out in Thursday's Daily News, the Eagles CAN still get it back together - from a math standpoint, they still hold their fate in their hands, this week against a pretty similar 3-5 train wreck of a team. But Demetress Bell against DeMarcus Ware? Really?

After watching the disjointed defensive efforts against Atlanta and New Orleans, I'm convinced something is going on here beyond offensive-line injuries and unfortunate turnovers. This overpaid, underaccomplished group does not pass the smell test.

Prove me wrong, maybe the season still can be interesting, with the Eagles visiting the Redskins next week. But I think the boulder is rolling downhill now, and nothing is going to stop it.

Prediction: Cowboys 20, Eagles 16.
