It looks like a crappy day in Philly, but lets be real EVERY day in Philly is crappy.

Could the weather hurt/help us?

Nothing but a gut feeling, I think that post generally would be a wash. Philly's best weapons are speed, which is negated by a wet field and football. But I think we're hit as hard with the passing game not being as sharp with the wind.

We need to go back to the Falcons of 2008. Heavy dose of the run and with a few WR screens and one or two deep shots.

I was saying trying to exploit their smallish D-Line and run some power football like we did in 08 it will be windy it will be raining so I don't think the way you win this game is throwing the ball all around Lincoln financial field. I really feel like if you just don't give up big plays against the Eagles Vick will eventually throw it to you are hand it to you. So when I say be the 08 Falcons I don't mean we need to be that exact team in 08 but I just feel like if there was any game we need to get the running game going it is this year. By the way the only reason that we lost to the Eagles in 08 was because the refs made a bad call on the punt touching Adam Jennings with a minute plus on the clock.

Give them Turner, Ovie, and the OL--all circa '08--and you have me. Short of that, ATL isn't in a position to power anything.
