PHI at NO – 1st Half Thread

Posted: November 5th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 252 Comments »

Nate Allen sits.  David Sims starts.  Sounds scary, but the good news is that Drew Brees doesn’t know what to expect.

Darryl Tapp is in Philly with his wife as she gives birth.  Mike Patterson is active.  Expect Cullen Jenkins to get reps at DE.

All 4 RBs are active.  Interesting.  Or dumb.  Let’s see the plan and figure out what Big Red is thinking.

Go EAGLES!!!


  • ceteris_paribus1776

    4 RBs = 43 rushing attempts…

    • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

      You fat fingered the 3 key. “4RBs = 4 rushing attempts…”

      • TommyLawlor

        Funny.

    • D3FB

      Upon checking, Hell has not yet frozen over. Unfortunately.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Carranza/1482895201 Eric Carranza

    is curry active for this game??

    • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

      No. They activated Dion Lewis instead. 5 DTs active, 4 DEs.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Carranza/1482895201 Eric Carranza

        with tapp not here it would of been the perfect time to activate him n see how he plays

  • http://twitter.com/Eagles301 Mike Perrie

    Still no Curry. So dumb.

    • TommyLawlor

      I’ll cover that this week.

  • ian_no_2

    Prediction: Sims will play well enough to supplant Allen as the starter.

  • lilmc

    Lets Go Birds!!!

  • http://twitter.com/Eagles301 Mike Perrie

    Bob Grotz
    ‏@BobGrotz Jeremy Maclin wins toss for #Eagles. Andy Reid, after two straight deferrals, elects to receive.

    Well that is nice.

  • A_T_G

    What was that old school offense, the wishbone or wing-T or something, with a halfback, fullback, splitback,…

    I bet we are running that against the worst secondary in the league.

  • lilmc

    Great key by Gruden Block Better.

    • bdbd20

      He also said to tackle better. Pretty good insight. You just can’t find this stuff anywhere.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Good to see Harbor on the field.

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    So far so good. Nice execution

    • TommyLawlor

      Yep.

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Vick could’ve completed that one to Maclin if Kelly hasn’t lost his boock

  • bdbd20

    Deep shot, wasted timeout early. I’d say AR is reverting to his old form.

  • TommyLawlor

    Hard to say if that play will stand. Got his hands on the ball before it hit the ground. Might be okay.

    • bdbd20

      No chance that play stands. I can’t remember the last time we got lucky on a call like that.

      • bdbd20

        I stand corrected.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Carranza/1482895201 Eric Carranza

      thats wat i was thinking hands on before n it didnt look like he lost control of it as it hit the ground

    • lilmc

      Catch Baby!!!

  • A_T_G

    That’s a catch, right? It can touch the ground if he has control.

  • A_T_G

    If you ask 50 people in a bar? Doesn’t he realize the replacement officials are gone?

  • rls255

    Nice drive so far, nice no challenge on the Celek play, lets keep it going.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Someone break into the ESPN booth and boo Tirico.

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    I’ll take it. That was a great play by Vick. See, I can give props when appropriate :)

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    WOW they called that?!

    I’ll take it, but wow.

  • bdbd20

    Man, Jeff must have shelled out some serious cash to buy that ref.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Tackle by Reynolds.

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Our oline blows

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Carranza/1482895201 Eric Carranza

      they really need to step it up or we might see foles in due to a vick injury

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Blitz blitz blitz. This Oline is wretched

  • shah8

    No OL, no offense.

  • http://twitter.com/Khidr9 Khidr9

    Third and 34. Quick call a run!

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    That was a disappointing way to end the drive

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    14 plays for a punt? ugh…

  • A_T_G

    That was the least confidence-inspiring 6 and a half minute drive I can remember.

    • rls255

      My thoughts exactly.

    • TommyLawlor

      Started so well, but then the blitzing just overwhelmed the guys. Barf.

  • bdbd20

    i now remember why we don’t take shots downfield anymore.

  • lilmc

    7 minute drive and nothing.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Carranza/1482895201 Eric Carranza

    a Sims pick 6 would look pretty good right about now

  • http://www.facebook.com/xbcsmith Brett Smith

    The worst defense in the league looks like world beaters.

    Good bye Andy… Your Offensive Line Sucks.

    Good bye Vick… no one can succeed with 1.5 seconds to throw the ball.

    AHHHHHHHHHH!H!H!H!H!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You have got to be kidding me. Why do I have to suffer through such friggin ineptitude?

    Dallas “Oley” Reynolds and “Oley PT2″ Kelly. Our O lIne sucks.

    AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! I should turn this steaming pile off.

  • lilmc

    We are the worst 3rd down team on both sides of the ball. Get there Trent!

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    …that pretty much sums up the season doesn’t it? Clear shot on Brees and we whiff.

  • http://www.facebook.com/xbcsmith Brett Smith

    I quit. I can’t take this.

    We suck.

  • rls255

    Thankfully he booted that fg.

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Pass dropping d by the eagles……thank god for that

  • http://www.facebook.com/xbcsmith Brett Smith

    Didn’t we invent the Double A gap blitz? Shouldn’t we know how to defend it?

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Had he gone for a career long, that would have split the uprights perfectly.

  • Mac

    I cant recall the last time we have seen 3 opposing kicks missed in a season.

  • A_T_G

    Wow. We covered a fumble, got a questionable call, had a missed field goal against us, and may have even touched their QB a little bit with a pinky finger.

    Things are turning around.

    • http://twitter.com/Khidr9 Khidr9

      I believe.

    • Steag209

      Spoke too soon

  • http://twitter.com/dfowler587 DF587

    Ugh

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Carranza/1482895201 Eric Carranza

    great run by bryce brown there now lets punch it in for 6

  • lilmc

    Nice run rook!!!

  • shah8

    When you run that ball, and you can do it, you’ll bust up that dang perma cover 2

  • nicolajNN

    Bryce looked a lot faster than I thought he was

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Carranza/1482895201 Eric Carranza

      looked pretty fast

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Maclin laying on the ground made a terrific “speed bump” block.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Unbelievable.

  • bdbd20

    I have to laugh to keep from crying.

    • TommyLawlor

      Un-F’ing-believable.

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Really…..straight up butt sauce…

    • TommyLawlor

      What a nightmare.

      • http://twitter.com/dfowler587 DF587

        Just throw it away.

  • SteveH

    Barf. This season has been unbelievable.

  • http://twitter.com/dfowler587 DF587

    Ineptitude at its most ineptness

  • shah8

    just…crazy

  • DarthBanner

    Yep. That’s how we roll.

  • http://twitter.com/Khidr9 Khidr9

    That’s the moment during a hangover when you realize it’ll just feel better if you barf. I feel better. Anyone else?

  • nicolajNN

    Doesn’t we usually win games with ints in the red zone?

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Lets see how dejected they play after that or if they come back fighting

  • Mac

    So im sitting here sayin out loud to my fiance we need to call 3 run plays and instead we throw a pick 6. I wish this was a surprise.

  • Allen3000

    RUN THE FREAKIN’ BALL ANDY/MM!!!!!!!!!!! Is it really that hard?????? Gosh, those guys make me hate watching the Eagles! So tired of the same old garbage!

  • teltschikfakeout88

    I just don’t get it. How many balls have bounced off of celeks hands into a waiting defender for a pic…..unbelievable…..my life as an eagles fan blows…

  • bdbd20

    Well, I guess that’s what they meant by “aggressive”

  • http://www.facebook.com/xbcsmith Brett Smith

    At least we had a record tonight…

    Longest INT TD return for the year and in Saints history

    F$(%U#_)@#*_)(U#P_()U#_(UQ#P(QUWR_P(UQ

    Why?

    Why must we suck?

  • DarthBanner

    Trent Cole got old and bad real fast.

  • GermanEagle

    And that’s why I stayed up late?!!!

  • bdbd20

    Well, that’s one way to keep Brees on the bench

  • Mac

    On the bright side this gives our defense time to rest.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Son of a bitch.

  • lilmc

    13 Turnovers in the opposition territory. Awful.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Carranza/1482895201 Eric Carranza

    another o-lineman out -.-

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Carranza/1482895201 Eric Carranza

    no need for that damn block in the back

  • http://twitter.com/n3th3rman Christopher Miller

    I knew I never should have given up drinking.

  • shah8

    Running game, I love you!!!!!

    No way anything bad can happen, right?

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Just keep pounding the rock.

  • Arby1

    OT in the 1st rd this year…

  • Mac

    Can we keep running the damn ball?

    • TommyLawlor

      We better. Only thing that is calming me down.

  • bdbd20

    Maybe time to go to that old Vick-ATL playbook where they just ran the ball everytime.

  • SteveH

    Does Maclin do more harm than good when he’s on the field?

    • TommyLawlor

      I am not real happy with him right now.

    • rls255

      It sure seems like that’s the case lately.

  • DarthBanner

    And we still can’t score in the first quarter against the worst defense in the league.

  • teltschikfakeout88

    3rd and 3….pass…..punt…..repeat the same on the next offensive drive.

  • GermanEagle

    I hate Maclin!!!

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Just be patient and keep making them pay for being overly aggressive. Only way they will win this game.

  • http://twitter.com/dfowler587 DF587

    Cutback is not there for Shady anymore. Hit the hole. Keep running the ball

  • rls255

    Eskin says it doesn’t look good for Herremans, getting x-rays now.

  • shah8

    Mathis…The Last Man Standing…

  • http://www.facebook.com/xbcsmith Brett Smith

    If Vick is checking to the right running plays who is calling the wrong passing plays?

    This is Marty and Andy’s fault.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    …we took a time out after the quarter for that?

  • bdbd20

    What is this, Oregon?

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Keep feeding them the bal…

  • rls255

    Damn, I wish he would have made the endzone.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Carranza/1482895201 Eric Carranza

    lets just run the ball the rest of the game

  • shah8

    Why, oh, why, aren’t our running back getting into the endzone! Nothing bad can happen if you already have a TD!!!

  • lilmc

    Run Forest Run!!!

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    I have nightmares about the Eagles red zone trips.

  • K_Dilkington

    It really is impressive how we just cannot score. We’re inventing new ways to not score!

    • http://twitter.com/dfowler587 DF587

      I hate the shovel-shuffle whatever pass

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Kelly looks awful. Bad decision by Vick; lucky it wasn’t intercepted

    • TommyLawlor

      Kelly has been bad. Gotta get his head out of his butt.

    • shah8

      I don’t think either the throw to Celek or DJax was a choice. That was a play, meant to be bang bang. No reads here.

  • phillychuck

    ESPN reports compound fracture of the ankle for Herremans. Out for the year.

    • rls255

      Eskin also said there could be ligament damage in addition to breaks, doesn’t sound good.

      • phillychuck

        There’s always ligament damage with a compound ankle fracture. He may never be the same.

        • rls255

          So there is our LT and RT with (possible) ligament tears, it feels like a higher power is against us.

  • dandynator

    that was a bad effort at tackling…

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Great tackling, Nnamdi

  • bdbd20

    AR: This was obviously embarassing. That’s on me. I’ve got to get the guys ready to play. We’ll keep working, that’s all we can do.

    Anything else to add?

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    What a joke

  • shah8

    Chris Ivory can run it in, why can’t OUR running backs run it in?

  • GermanEagle

    game and Season over!

    • TommyLawlor

      That was very, very discouraging.

  • http://twitter.com/dfowler587 DF587

    Embarrassing display of tackling.

  • bdbd20

    At least our punt return unit won’t get exposed today.

    • shah8

      Do NOT jinx us

  • K_Dilkington

    Herremans out? Entire back-up line except Mathis? Well ok, that’s the year. Good effort, boys.

  • Allen3000

    Of course I’ll stay up for the rest of the game, but I have zero faith in this team to win the game. None. Can anyone here seriously convince me we have a shot to win this game now?

    • http://twitter.com/dfowler587 DF587

      No

    • lilmc

      They have no heart.

  • http://www.facebook.com/xbcsmith Brett Smith

    T-Law.

    Mark it. The eternal optimist has quit on this team.

    I give. Every one else was right….

    Mark this as the worst half of Eagles football since Bobby Hoying was the QB.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=565087931 Jeppe Elmelund van Ee

    Can anyone explain to me why I am up at 3.40 am watching this game??

    • Mac

      You are a masochist…err Eagles fan.

  • teltschikfakeout88

    The d looked like it was checked out on that last drive…just saw guys getting blown off the line…….

  • bdbd20

    Team appears to have quit. I’m starting to question if AR will make it through the season

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Now it’s time to turn it loose Andy. Down by 11, let it fly, let it fly, let it fly. This may get ugly

  • shah8

    It’s amazing what a lack of pass rush does to everything else on a defense.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    first i saw jason babin do it and then i saw graham do the same thing. they both just crash down inside leaving absolutely no one on that side of the field. both of them did it, so i would have to think it is a scheme thing… but why??

  • http://www.facebook.com/xbcsmith Brett Smith

    We have over 100 yards running and we are down 14 to 3 I give. This is BullS$t.

    We suck.

  • K_Dilkington

    Riley Cooper smiling after committing a drive-killing penalty. Yes, the team is aware of the level of seriousness of this game and its bearing on their season.

    • TommyLawlor

      Yeah, that’s frustrating to see.

  • DarthBanner

    Nice job Riley. Down by 11 despite dominating on a drive you need points is the perfect time for a personal foul against an ex-eagle.

  • MichaelFloyd84

    This is atrocious. At this rate i doubt Vick or Reid last the season. Straight up embarrassing

  • GermanEagle

    i dont wanna see cooper ever in an eagles uniform again!!! Why is that prick smiling after his personal foul? That is disgusting!!!

    • A_T_G

      I think it was a grimace, not a smile. A, “Wow, that was a bad call” grimace.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Apparently Marcus Vick is asking to have his brother traded out of Philly over on Twitter.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Eric-Carranza/1482895201 Eric Carranza

    so turns out the flag was a bad call

  • bdbd20

    I can’t believe we’re making their defense look good. Embarassing.

    • MichaelFloyd84

      Really? I expected it

      • bdbd20

        I kinda did too, but my brain told me that it wouldn’t happen.

    • http://twitter.com/dfowler587 DF587

      Very disappointing

  • double_z

    i wonder if big red shit his pants when herremans went down. he saw his job flash before his eyes. vick too, he’s gonna get killed. we’ll need a miracle now.

  • eagles2zc

    Is Saints basically blitzing every down?

    • TommyLawlor

      Yep.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      seems like it. and it also seems like our coaching staff still don’t expect them to blitz…

    • rls255

      It also seems that sometimes they’re bringing five but our five can’t seem to block them.

      • http://www.facebook.com/xbcsmith Brett Smith

        Andy knows the blitz that is coming we invented it.

  • GermanEagle

    so if the saints will be up 21-3 at halftime will we see how Foles is going to die behind our o line in the second half?!

  • A_T_G

    Announcers say that Bell has to make sure Vick knows there is an unblocked man coming from the edge. Don’t they know that we just work from the assumption that opponents on the line of scrimmage will be unblocked?

  • http://twitter.com/dfowler587 DF587

    Tommy, do our receivers have a problem with reading blitzes and reading a hot route?

  • DarthBanner

    Does anyone think that Brees isn’t driving the Saints to another TD here?

  • A_T_G

    Sims isn’t very good.

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Seriously guys, it’s ok to wrap up when you tackle. In fact, we encourage it.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i’m glad we tackled the RB in the backfield on that play. too bad he didnt have the ball…

  • lilmc

    Can we please knock a qb on their ass instead of letting them hang out.

  • Eagles1991

    So is Herremens done for the year?

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Nnamdi can’t cove anymore or tackle. Great signing…

  • rls255

    It’s excruciating, they’re getting pressure every time and Breese seems to have all day in the pocket.

  • DarthBanner

    Ohh look, Trent Cole not making another play in the backfield…

    • lilmc

      None of these dudes better say a word about being close to making plays. They all suck. Cole needs to give some money back.

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    This team is an utter joke

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    WTF they just used the f’n sprint draw against us!

  • http://twitter.com/dfowler587 DF587

    Guys on the sideline look “done”. Just “done”.

  • bdbd20

    It’s like the Seattle game all over again. I’m truly embarassed to be an Eagle fan today. The only thing that may change our future may be losses like this. Major change is needed.

  • Eagles1991

    Unreal. Another uninspired loss. At least I can get to bed at a decent hour

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Damn Reid looked like he was going to hyperventilate their on tv.

  • DarthBanner

    What’s most disturbing is how out of the game by half time we have been in back to back “must win” games. Nobody seems to care that the season is slipping away.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      yea, it really doesnt look like any of the players feel this is a ‘must win’ game, thats for sure.

      • A_T_G

        I don’t agree. McCoy seems to have more urgency, as do some of the other players. We knew their offense would move the ball. We just can’t do anything with 3 defenders racing Vick to the back of his drop.

        I don’t see it as an effort thing.

        • TheRogerPodacter

          thats true. i was more speaking of the defense. the RBs are absolutely busting their asses and the stats show it. i just wish the D could see it….

  • Eagles1991

    I bet Reid is shitting himself right now…..literally this must be killing his stomach, if that is possible

  • http://twitter.com/SeedSeries J. Brian Anderson

    All of you are so emotionally engaged – I don’t know about you all but after the shebacle of last year I realized that I didn’t care if they won or lost. I’d still watch every game but win or loose I knew they didn’t/weren’t going to play like a team bound for the post-season. It’s a dysfunctional marriage and Andy Reid just ain’t gonna change his cheatin’ ways…

  • ricky

    I’m tired of this team. Vick is garbage.

  • ricky

    Can they hire Juan back

  • http://www.facebook.com/xbcsmith Brett Smith

    Sean Payton is killing us even when suspended.

    Reid enjoy San Diego. I hope the king of float loses a few AFC Championship games for you.

    Did I mention we suck.

  • DarthBanner

    Ballgame. See you Andy. The team has clearly tuned you out.

  • nicolajNN

    Can’t believe I woke up for this. Worst part, there’s no point in going back to sleep at this point

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=565087931 Jeppe Elmelund van Ee

      We must be crazy for doing this time and time again!!

  • http://twitter.com/dfowler587 DF587

    Nhamdi is garbage

  • http://twitter.com/corry_k Corry Henry

    Andy Reid isn’t going to last 16 games this year.

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    There’s a 7 yard gap up the middle of the Dline. Great job

  • Eagles1991

    Announcer: It’s like the Eagles had nev seen some of these trap runs…..classic quote

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Let the re-building begin – time to sit Big Red at halftime!

  • rls255

    Did you see that?!?! Namndi ran into the ref!!!

    • http://twitter.com/dfowler587 DF587

      Everybody saw that…..except Nhamdi

    • TheRogerPodacter

      how many times have we seen our corners get picked? its either the refs or other defenders or offensive players whatever. i want to say this shit only happens to us, but i’m only kinda sure of that.

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Nnamdi was beaten anyway, ref or not. Cosell is right, he’s not very good

  • TommyLawlor

    I don’t think words can adequately express my frustration right now.

    This is beyond belief.

    • lilmc

      They are mind numbing.

      • http://www.facebook.com/xbcsmith Brett Smith

        I have tried to express how bad this is… can I mention Rich Kotite now?

  • double_z

    i wonder if big red shit his pants when herremans went down. he saw his job flash before his eyes. vick too, he’s gonna get killed. we’ll need a miracle now.

    reposting this, sorry, first time posting and didn’t refresh the comments so posted my new comment 12 minutes back in the timeline. dunno if anyone saw, kinda like the seinfeld eisode with george and the tip jar…

    • TheRogerPodacter

      even after herremans went down, we continued to run the ball pretty well. but then we seemed to stop running it…

      • double_z

        true, but this new orleans defense, they’re historically bad this year. we were a siv and our best remaining went down. i hope you’re right, but have low confidence that line can do it.

        • TheRogerPodacter

          oh absolutely. i have *some* faith that we can run the ball against them based on
          1. we have run it very well this game and 2. the saints D is so terrible.
          but…..
          being down by so many points, i really doubt andy is going to run the ball much from here on…

          • double_z

            yeah, we’re in trouble for the year. so’s andy.

  • Eagles1991

    Listen, it’s on me alright. I gotta put in a better position to win. Times yours……

  • Arby1

    dear riley cooper. thank you for keeping boykin from running that kick out. you just gave us 5 yards more of field position. thanks.

  • Eagles1991

    Really Andy.

  • Eagles1991

    Nice passes

  • bdbd20

    Maybe we’ll see Foles in the 2nd half. It’s really the only thing keeping me awake.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i’m not so sure i want to see foles put into this game. with the saints blitzing so heavily and with the backup OL, i’m thinking he’d be set up for failure at this point…

      • bdbd20

        We’re going nowhere with Vick. He’ll be gone in March. I say let’s get the rookie in there and see what he can do. The running game is going well tonight. We need to find out if he can play.

        • TheRogerPodacter

          thats fair. trial by fire.
          you do make a great point, thought – find out now if foles has what it takes. if not, QB is a priority for this offseason.

    I hate to ask, but any chance we see Foles in the 2nd half? Vick is under pressure, but he is missing receivers when they are open.

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Don’t the Saints have one of the worst defenses in the history of the NFL? Don’t worry guys, this is “fixable”

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i know their D is historically bad in terms of yards per game, but i dont know about points per game.
      so far, we are doing pretty well yardage wise, but just like we’ve seen all year, all the yards in the world don’t count for any points.

    The great thing about Doritos. They are satisfying. Unlike the Eagles.

      I laughed i cried…

        Sorry friend. I am devastated as most of us are at this display of ineptitude. We trusted in Reid but his players obviously have given up on the Eagle way. Duce, BWest, DMac, and WeaponX are disappointed. Very disappointed.

        I hate Sean Payton. He has historically always killed the Iggles. Now in his Vitt ghost like presence he has sealed Reid’s fate. I will not support him as a future coach ever… he is an eagle killer.

          BTW Trot would never tolerate this…..

          • Mac

            It is truly an abomination

  • Steag209

    Vick’s done. If he can only manage 3 againt the Saints. He’s done, give me Foles, hell give me Edwards

    • TheRogerPodacter

      wildcat offense. no QB needed.

  • Eagles1991

    Tommy, maybe later this week you could discuss why you think Andy and the front office decided to go light on the Oline this year. Just curious for your thought on that one

    Goodbye running game in the 2nd half. One bright spot tonight will only get witnessed in the 1st half.

  • A_T_G

    I think Babin tied Brees’ shoes together- watch out in the second half.

  • shah8

    finally

  • lilmc

    Time to go raid the kids Halloween candy. This is depressing.

  • SteveH

    Holy, did Babin hit the quarterback?

    • http://twitter.com/dfowler587 DF587

      No, he grabbed his foot

    • eagles2zc

      Touched his shoes maybe

  • phillychuck

    Play Foles, run the ball 2/3 of the time.

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    150 yds rushing in the first half and 3 points. Keep up the good work guys

  • shah8

    A Watching global tactical swings here…I think we’ve seen beginning of the end of the cover-2 shells that’ve come up over the last year, as teams with good running backs and good run-blocking OLs have started to CRUSH anyone who don’t have enough bodies up close (and itty-bitty DBs who can’t make that open field tackle).

    Heh, it’s not a QB’s league anymores, it’s an OG’s game, now…

      I like the thought, but I think you’re a bit behind on it. The swing to power Os happened 5 years ago. Now things are moving toward QBs who can read the play at the snap and before the snap and put the ball where the defense ain’t quickly. Those QBs are making O lines less important, because they don’t keep the ball as long.

      Look at the best offenses in the NFL this year. Aside from the Texans, their lines ain’t great. Green Bay’s line is downright bad. The ball comes out before the rush gets there.

    oh look they are picking on david simms….

  • Baloophi

    No power in the house… sounds like I’m lucky?

  • double_z

    that was a turnover! i remember them! almost forgot what it was

    I can’t help but feel like Breeze would have hit that pass easily. Playing against Breeze is really highlighting Vick’s inaccuracy.

    I’ve been defending Vick lately (the O-line is terrible, I didn’t think Vick had been that bad lately) but he really does not get the ball where it needs to be when it needs to be there at a 2012 NFL level. “Read and react correctly” is the direction the league is going, and Vick isn’t that kind of player.
