PHI at WAS – 1st Half Thread

Posted: November 18th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 144 Comments »

Folesmania launches today.  Should be fun to watch.  At least, I’m hoping it is.

Here are the inactives:

QB Mike Vick
RB Chris Polk
WR Mardy Gilyard
WR Jason Avant
OL Nate Menkin

DE Phillip Hunt
DE Vinny Curry

Bold prediction for the day…Damaris Johnson delivers a big play on offense.

Let’s go win a game, please.  That will allow me to update  Bob Griffin’s nickname to RG3and7.  The little things keep me sane in a crappy year like this.

    I think we can, I think we can, I think we can, I think we can…

  • T_S_O_P

    We have a live broadcast and a happy camper, I’m sure my Eagles an’t spoil that.

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

    …wait, why is Bryce Brown returning kicks and not Boykin?

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

    The only thing that makes that more annoying is that it was Deangelo Hall who made the pick. I HATE that guy.

  • T_S_O_P

    On Celek

    • shah8

      that sort of pass has always had to be rifled in.

  • SteveH

    WHAT THE FUCK CELEK!? Fletcher didn’t even touch it!

  • eagles2zc

    WOW, did Lurie piss off some higher power or what? Can’t make this stuff up

    • TommyLawlor

      This is not the start I had envisioned.

  • SteveH

    Annnnnd Nate Allen gets badly burned by play action. Lovely.

    • TommyLawlor

      Not good.

  • SteveH

    Holy shit I cannot even believe it, Foles credited with the interception but that was ALL on Celek. Can’t believe this.

  • DamonL86

    Hello top 5 pick

  • SteveH

    You have got to be kidding me! Celek with the stone hands! Now people gonna point to Foles stat line like he had an interception, jesus christ.

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

    Good to see the whole team stepping up to help out the Rookie.

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

    Receivers need to get credited with INTs. That wasn’t on Foles.

  • T_S_O_P

    Let’s see the next 15 scripted plays

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

    Trading penalties to start.

  • ACViking

    So Foles threw a prefect pass that Celek turned into an INT. Unfortunate.

    Encapsulates the entire season.

  • shah8

    OL horrendus on that run

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

    I will say that Foles is making some quick decisions, and so far pretty good decisions.

  • SteveH

    I like how Foles not rattled at all. Young kid getting burned by his own guys and staying cool. Very good.

    • ACViking

      Foles spent 2 years living this same nightmare at AZ.

  • TommyLawlor

    Converted on first 3rd down. That was good to see.

    • T_S_O_P

      did it well too

  • BC1968

    Nice to get some first downs here at least

  • shah8

    Anyways, there have been a number of Celek bounces that have turned into TOs. I view this as an indictment about WR size. Meal tickets should not be so thoroughly dependent on the middle of the field like that, and when it’s *short*, that pass *has* to be rifled in.

  • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

    great audible on the blitz recognition by the kid

  • BC1968

    Beautiful to Cooper

  • ACViking

    Last year, against these Redskins (I think), Celek made an incredible circus catch after tipping the ball up and then laying on his back.

    I thought the gods would be with us after that.

    Not to be.

  • shah8

    Credit Mathis for that great WR screen.

    • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

      i guess Mathis changed the playcall?

    • shah8

      No, that was kelly from the other side of the field!

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

    Good play by Foles called back by a penalty. Sounds like a broken record.

  • T_S_O_P

    great coversion, great effort by #14 and #18

  • BC1968

    Mistakes have to be expected with this line

  • ACViking

    You have to like Foles.

    You don’t have to like anyone on the Eagles O-Line.

    The O-line has been a failure from Roseman to Reid to Mudd to the players.

  • ACViking

    Great that we have Jake Scott.

    2 penalties in the first Q.

    OMG!!!!

  • BC1968

    Get to fg range at least

  • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

    now that one is on Foles

  • shah8

    le sigh

  • http://twitter.com/Khidr9 Khidr9

    2 for 2. This is such an exhausting team.

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

    Yeah…I’d like to say it’s on the receiver this time but…

  • SteveH

    Yeah that one all foles lol.

    • TommyLawlor

      Got greedy. Must be smarter than that. Punting is okay.

  • http://twitter.com/EaglesPride_ Aleandro green

    i think ive seen this before….

  • BC1968

    Easy to blitz against andy and marty, I could game plan against this team

  • SleepingDuck

    With the first overall pick in the 2013 draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select….

  • GermanEagle

    worst eagles team since 1999

    • eagles2zc

      We have been too spoiled by the Reid era sans last two years. I really hope the next HC is a hit or Eagles will be in for some lean times

  • ACViking

    Pressure . . . not sacks . . . is what creates TOs. The Eagles have neither on defense. And no pass-pro on offense.

    A-gap blitzes. Killing the team the entire season.

    Well, I’ve seen enough.

    T-Law, I look forward to your DGR.

  • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

    its just like Vick is still running the offense…

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

    (*&%&*$%^*(&*&(%^*#&*()*&)^&*%^$%^*$&*^(*()(

  • shah8

    Good defensive stand!

    • T_S_O_P

      except the 3rd down, that was a gift

      • TommyLawlor

        Skins run that stuff quite a bit.

  • T_S_O_P

    Wow, Kyle with an Eagle-esque 3rd down call

  • Crus57

    It’s kinda sad that no matter if we’re punting or receiving a punt the other team are the first ones to the ball

  • ACViking

    Has Foles had time to set up in the pocket on ANY pass play in the 1st two series?

    I don’t think so.

    C’mon!!!

    [T-Law . . . it’s like watching a car wreck. I can’t look away.]

  • BC1968

    Max protect

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

    Good chemistry between Foles and Cooper.

  • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

    the penalties on the OL so far have been punt-the-TV brutal

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

    Look on the bright side King, at least it wasn’t a hands to the face.

  • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

    Foles looks like a crafty vet throwing screens

  • ConcussedFB

    King Dunlap has a future as a strip club bouncer.

  • BC1968

    Way to combat the blitz, for a change

  • BC1968

    They are actually going forward?

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

      It’s sad that I keep looking for flags every time they get a positive play.

      • BC1968

        Yep, same here, or a fumble. Been that kind of year

  • kaninfaan

    On the subject of nicknames…

    “Pick” Foles?

    • TommyLawlor

      No.

      • kaninfaan

        I hope youre right. I try to be funny when Im nervous. It’s always a trainwreck. Sorry….

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1514128048 Kristopher Cebula

    tommy,
    it seems that the eagles game plan today is to run the ball mixed in with short passes and play action. Do you think that vick can be successful in this game plan and if so, why have they not been doing this before? i

  • TommyLawlor

    Love to see the screen game working. Eagles have come up with a couple of wrinkles and they’re working well. Getting the ball to Shady with room to run is always a good thing.

  • SleepingDuck

    Even though Foles has thrown 2 picks, I’m still encouraged by the fact that we can move the ball on offense and keep RG3and6 on the sideline.

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

    Two guys blew blocks on that WR screen.

  • GermanEagle

    Geno. Smith.

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

      I understand you want another quarterback, but I don’t think Geno is the answer. When he’s on, he’s amazing, but when he’s off, holy crap he’s waaaaaaay off.

    • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

      worst. idea. ever.

  • shah8

    Redskins offense looks terrible

    • shah8

      only thing good about it is RG3

  • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

    contain Kendricks….dammit

  • SteveH

    Ugh, outside in Kendricks…

    • GermanEagle

      O. Verrated

    • TommyLawlor

      I just went on a screaming rant about that. So, so depressing. Should have been a simple play.

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

    They just can’t finish the play can they?

  • T_S_O_P

    Don’t they love to slobber over Griffin. My gosh, it’s like Starship 7 allover

    • Crus57

      You must remember how nauseating all the fawning over Vick was in the mid 00’s, this is just part 2 of that.

  • ACViking

    Tom Brennaman is about to propose marriage to RG-III.

    I guess I’m spoiled after Randall, D-Mac, and Vick.

  • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

    why dont we just take the effin safties off the field….results would be equivalent

  • shah8

    /me stews

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

    Ladies and Gentlemen, Nnamdi Asomugha.

  • John Ormond

    Oh eagles….

  • eagles2zc

    What…just…happened? NA too slow? Blown coverage?

    • Crus57

      Both of the above I think. Time to watch the Formula 1.

      • ACViking

        If you want to see a car wreck don’t change the channel

    • BlindChow

      Soft zone?

  • GermanEagle

    What happened to Landri?! Did you disown your son, Tommmy?!

    • TommyLawlor

      Down year. I think he’s been affected by a knee injury, but disappointing.

  • NoDecaf

    Please stay tuned for our funniest pun contest immediately following the game.

  • shah8

    I’ve been more and more impressed by BBrown

  • ian_no_2

    Aldrick Robinson is a speedster who isn’t that good, so putting him on a post route with Nmandi is a smart move, especially when the safety help is AWOL.

  • onemorebop

    Looks like Nate Allen got caught cheating up, no?

  • SteveH

    I like this Bryce brown.

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

    Thanks Maclin.

  • shah8

    Foles had to make that throw

    • shah8

      eeek that was a worse play than I thought on the sack!

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

    This team is a dumpster fire.

  • SteveH

    Lol, banks with another fumble, I’ll bet jimmy bama is going nuts.

    • TommyLawlor

      Banks is a fumble machine, but the Skins lose very few of them.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1514128048 Kristopher Cebula

    bryce brown having a good day on offense and as KR. running hard

  • GermanEagle

    Is #67 who ripped Vick publicly?!

    • TommyLawlor

      Yes. However, he said the comments were pieced together to sound worse than he intended.

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

    Is it just me or are we playing out of the shotgun a lot?

  • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

    does that count as your big play from Demaris, Tommy?

  • SteveH

    Lol love these announcers, Kurt Kurrman and Demarius Johnson.

  • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

    can we please get a real TE in the offseason….

  • SteveH

    Jesus Celek…

    • eagles2zc

      He’s having a drop-tisic season

  • Iskar36

    Brent celek is having a horrible season.

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

    Good lord. Celek is one of my favorite players, but c’mon man.

  • NoDecaf

    I didn’t know he was Latino…

  • http://twitter.com/DMcTash The Synth Lord

    Celek has become a drop machine – how many tips/drops has he had this season? Who tracks this? ESPN? Stats Inc?

  • GermanEagle

    3 points against this D in the first half?! And you were tacking the mickeys out of Vick?!

  • eagles2zc

    Using alot of zone coverage today

    • TommyLawlor

      You need to vs RG3. That way if he runs the DBs will be looking at him. In man, DBs turn their back and can be badly burned by a running QB.

      • eagles2zc

        Ahh I see. Was wondering about the changeup

  • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

    DRC even misses on going for the headshot….

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

    3 stinkin’ points. Face. Palm.

  • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

    you gotta be effin kidding me….

  • GermanEagle

    Exactly for this reason. I am glad AR will be gone!

  • SteveH

    Lol just take a knee Andy.

  • shah8

    /me stews even more.

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

    HOLY SHIT! REALLY?! REALLY?! TAKE A GODDAMN KNEE IF YOU’RE JUST GOING TO QUIT ON THE HALF FAT MAN!

  • GermanEagle

    hHahanahanahhanahahajajajjaana

  • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

    sooooo…3-13 will get us what? like the 4th pick?

    • GermanEagle

      At least Geno Smith.

  • http://twitter.com/ToastJenkins ToastJenkins

    this is the sloppiest team i’ve ever seen….

  • GermanEagle

    This game is over. Thanks for another wasted Sunday.

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

    Bobby April looks like a man who realizes he’s going to get fired.

  • shah8

    Oh, god, they’re MOCKING US in the halftime show! Did you see that?!

  • NoDecaf

    Alrightythen! Let’s get this second half thread started!!! #Rallycap

  • SteveH

    Oddly enough I dont feel like the Redskins can move the ball on us unless we blow a coverage.

  • TommyLawlor

    new thread is up
