Poobah: That was an old-fashioned butt-kicking the Eagles absorbed, at home, against a Seattle defense that looks a lot like the ‘Legion of Boom’ that crushed Denver is last year’s Super Bowl. But this is a chaotic league and you can check out pitiful Oakland beating the 49ers for proof of that.

Keep in mind that the Eagles are not as good as they looked against Dallas on Thanksgiving, and certainly not as bad as they looked against the Seahawks. In your heart of hearts, you wouldn’t want it any other way, Eagles-Cowboys at the Linc with everything on the line. Keep the faith.


You can hear Stan “The Grand Imperial Poobah” Hochman on the 94WIP Morning Show every Thursday at 7:20am E.T. Send the Philadelphia sports issues you want The Poobah to tackle to
