This week's game will see Brad Childress' former employers, the Philadelphia Eagles, visit the Metrodome to take on the Beloved Purple. As usual, I've exchanged five questions with Jason, the head blogger at SBNation's outstanding site dedicated to the Eagles, Bleeding Green Nation. These were his responses.
Update [2007-10-27 6:54:32 by Gonzo]:
You can see the answers I supplied to Jason's questions right here.
1) Welcome to NFL Suckville, where pre-season optimism goes to die. I didn't expect to see your team move into the neighborhood this season. What's happened to cause the Eagles to go from pre-season NFC East favorites to being 2-4 after 6 games?
2) Your head coach, Andy Reid, has had a lot of off-field issues to deal with over the past few months. What sort of effect, if any, do you think that it's had on the Eagles? Has it contributed to their slow start?
3) Let's fast-forward a bit. . .it's Opening Day of the 2008 season. Who's lined up behind center for the Eagles in the season opener. . .Donovan McNabb or Kevin Kolb?
4) What do you think is the key for the Eagles this Sunday if they're going to come out of Minnesota with a victory?
On defense, it's all about stopping that Vikings rushing attack. So far, the Eagles defense has been pretty stout against the run(4th best in the NFC) so that should be a really good strength v strength match up to watch.
5) How do you see Sunday's game unfolding?
