I don't know why, but I'm having a really good feeling about this game. Am I being overly optimistic? Well I don't really know, I just need something to hold on to and a win over the Niners will do it! Here's another www.PhilaDehliaEagles.com post, please critique. I tried a little different style that some of my subscribers have already pointed out. Let me know what you guys think. Also, where are my Westcoast Eagles fans at? I need some back up in some of these Eagle hater bars, lol.

As an Eagles Fan representing on the west coast, I’ve been going to all the Eagles west coast games (yes, including the NFC Championships when we played in Arizona) Most of the games I’ve gone to are in San Francisco against the 49ers. I love going into 9er’s territory and taking over. So obviously I have some fond memories when thinking of our match up against San Francisco week.
Ok, week 4 Eagles host 49ers. This is where my Eagles are gonna turn things around I can feel it! It doesn’t matter if on paper Philadelphia Eagles are the better team, all that matters is that they actually play to their potential. I’m tired of losing games that we should win, and it better stop here.
So here’s the breakdown. 49er’s coach Jim Harbough, is the brother of John Harbough who used to coach for the Eagles a few yrs ago. Which means he might ask his brother for insight to the Eagles, but Jim is still an unproven rookie head coach. Frank gore hasn’t been effective in the running game this year, so hopefully we won’t get gashed by a running back like our other games this season.
In the passing game, Big Vern, aka Vernon Davis, has the *potential* to destroy the middle of our defense, if Alex Smith can get him the ball. He is such a big part of their offense that I would like to see Nnamdi on him all game. DRC and Samuel should be able to handle Crabbtree and Edwards. And if they go 3-wide, I feel fine with one of our non-pro-bowl corners covering "Brick Hands" Teddy Ginn. Big Vern gave us a big burn the last time we played, torching us for a 100+ receiving yard game. If we don’t do something special to take him out of the game, he could be looking at Tony Gonzales numbers.
Defensively, the Niners have arguably the best linebacker in the league in Patrick Willis. He’s a stud: he’s fast, instinctual, and can lay some wood. I hope we double team him in the run game and also the pass blocking game when he blitzes. I want to keep him as far away from Vick as possible. Especially since Vick seems to be complaining about getting hit so much. Before Vick can talk about being hit he needs to avoid all the other unnecessary hits he takes when he scrambles – Please slide or go out of bounds before they can touch you – one more yard isn’t worth it unless you’re going to break the plane, the pilon, or reach a marker on 3rd down.
My question this week doesn’t really have to do with the game, but I want to know what city everyone is representing from. Are you a displaced NFL fan like me representing outside of your teams state? Or are you in the heart of your team’s city. For me, I’m an Eagles fan living in Los Angeles, CA. How about you? Leave me a comment and let me know where you are from and what team u represent?
