WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT

The return of Sammy Sleeves: Peter King crowned Bradford the NFL MVP after 5 weeks which is ridiculous. But how good has he been so far?

Bennie Logan looks like he'll be out on Sunday with what appears to be a serious groin injury

Eagles are going to stick with Big V and that’s probably a mistake. According to Greg Cosell, Big V had help on 70% of the snaps last week.

The Vikings love blitzing the A Gap a la Jim Johnson. What’s the best gameplan against this?

Jim Schwartz said Connor Barwin could see fewer snaps this week. What took so long? Vinny Curry needs to step up and be the guy he’s being paid to be.

Schwartz took the blame for last week's poor performance by the defense. Is it the players or the coaches getting off to these slow starts?

*in the 1st half this year: 189.4 yards and 11.8 pts allowed, 3 sacks, 2 TOs)

*in the 2nd half this year: 122.6 yards and 3.0 pts allowed, 11 sacks, 6 TOs)

Are the Eagles defenders just not as good as we thought? They’ve had great flashes, but they haven’t been consistent

Eagles are now saying Dorial Green-Beckham has no more limitations, is this guy going to find it?

Name Game Time!

Which set of Eagles wide receivers would you rather have?

This year's group or the 2000 crew of Charles Johnson, Torrance Small, and Na Brown?

This year's group or the 2003 crew of James Thrash, Todd Pinkston, Freddie Mitchell, Greg Lewis?

Most receiving yards in a game by #Eagles outside WR over last 2 seasons is 78 yards (Josh Huff), no one has more than 4 catches.

We put on the ‘use Zach Ertz more’ broken record.

How can the Eagles score points on the Vikings defense? Barchard suggests to go uptempo, go no huddle and dink & dunk all over them.

We take your Twitter questions

@CatrickPahil - Do you think Allen will help sure up against the run, even at the cost of pressure that Bennies gives?

@D-Tomei - What's the weakness in MIN's defense that PHI can exploit?

@JonnyPage9 - Are you worried about Schwartz' refusal to adapt in game against the Redskins?

@flintlock97 - should the birds make a trade ASAP for a starting right tackle. Gotta protect the franchise

@DanS_SotS - Does Zach Ertz get sick days since he can't catch a cold?

@dan52036 - What kind of trade value do you think we could get for Barwin?

To say that the Giants are not handling the Josh Brown situation well would be a huge understatement.

We make our NFL picks, give our Eagles prediction and our final thoughts!
