What Would Buddy Do?
I’m not buying the Trap Game theory
Posted on September 20th, 2008 at 11:35 am by Cheesesteak Hoagie

For about half the week I had myself completely convinced that the Steelers game had low-effort/ letdown/ Trap Game written all over it.  The Birds had just lost a tough one on the road to a division rival, they never play well against decent AFC teams, and the Stillers were no joke.

But I don’t think that’ll be the problem tomorrow.  The Birds lost a tough game in Week Two to a division rival last year as well (albeit at home) and then completely humiliated the Lions the following week.  So I’m going to point to that scenario and say that they’re not going to write the Stillers off this week.

Of course, that doesn’t mean this looks like a good matchup for the Eagles.  No Shawn Andrews = badness.  But at least it won’t be a lack of effort that does the team in.  Or so I’d like to believe.
