Good but not great

Great teams don't take opponents lightly, no matter the record.

Good but not great


Great teams don't take opponents lightly, no matter the record. Great teams don't give a struggling quarterback life. Great teams don't call time outs when there are none, don't miss makeable field goals, don't allow their quarterback to be sacked six times, and they certainly don't let a winless opponent win. Even on the road, all the way across the country.

Maybe the Eagles will be great this season. They haven't been today against the Raiders. Under three to play, they can still win. Great teams would.
