This is a pre-programmed post since I’m out watching the game tonight. Let’s hope for good things in the 2nd half.
Call me a homer.
I would pull for this Foles-Brown team all year. Love the Brasher DL.
Where was this offense years ago?
Foles has hit dudes in the head, bread basket, hands all game. I am starting to think the kid is something.
Now I know how Dallas fans feel.
Romo plays like crap until there is no reason to try …
This team makes me feel like that. Why tease us? The next coach is going to blow this up.
I am sold. Give me Graham, Foles, Brown, Cooper next year and some hope to boot.
I have to say, Brown has been disappointing the last game and a half. He had 2 unbelievable games, but seems to be trying to bounce to many plays outside recently. The play calling certainly doesn’t help though.
no holes–he’s not missing any holes, there aren’t any today.
Tommy’s not here? So I can *finally* say what I’ve always thought about him!
I got nothing.
Pre-Programmed? Did you just Big League us? I feel like we are getting Big Leagued right now.
I really hate NFLN’s pregame/postgame crew.
Hated those goal line plays near the end of the half. The strike to Harbor was legit, but the next 2 plays kinda stunk. I’d love to see us not do the whole cut the field in half thing, even if it did work last week.
No Washburn, no wide nine, no problem!
My boy Brandon Graham is getting his shot and delivering. I’ve been pulling for him ever since everyone started piling on about him being a “bust” after his knee injury.
Hope Tommy got good seats. Look like they moved people to fill up the lower sections
Most impressed that Foles didn’t make a mistake and really force something in the 1st quarter after the Eagles were down 10-0. His composure too despite mediocre pass protection again.
Welcome back Cole. I have missed you this season (my favorite player on this team).
Totally different player without the wide nine…
Good beginning. So happy to see this defense playing like this. We will have an interception tonight
This game makes me think we need to keep the 4-3. Our personnel just suites it too well. It’s going to be a slow and painful transition if we try to change.
The Eagles have a good foundation for a 4-3 there’s no reason to change.
thats bush league, dunlap.
Out of football next year I bet.
random question… why couldn’t both of those penalties be taken? the unnecessary roughness was clearly after the play. i dunno…
Wow. D actually making plays
Nice to see the Eagles haven’t completely abandoned the run here as MM is prone to do if the running game went nowhere in the 1st half.
Hamstring on Havili and he’s out for the rest of the game. Maclin is nursing his ankle and has a pulled hamstring injury.
Running of healthy skill players.
I almost felt like the Eagles were going to go up 20-10
Why do the handoffs look so awkward?
I remember Burfict being quite the divisive player during the draft. Cincy may have found the guy no one wanted.
Yeah. He was a guy I really wanted the Eagles to take a flyer on in a late round (5th-6th).
i’m not sure he was a good fit for the defense we had on paper this offseason. i think we were looking for more instinctive LBs which was his biggest knock.
who knows how he would have fit for this D or for our D in the future now, though.
I’m not sure he was a good fit for the coordinator. Mike Zimmer is a good coach and has been able to turn it around for more than a couple troubled guys on his D. I”m not sure Castillo/Bowles would have been able to turn him into a player.
He probably wasn’t but for a guy so talented he was worth a late round pick. I was really surprised some team didn’t take him with a 7th round pick
definitely. i mean… we took bryce brown in the 7th right? i would have been ok with any random LB in the 6th or 7th so if they picked burfict there thats all good. lol
As you enjoy that pair of sacks, also enjoy the lack of wierd miscommunictions in the secondary
Where was this pressure all year?
Wasted in the Wide 9.
soon cox will have more sacks than babin!
wow if that one counds for a half sack, he should be tied at 5.5, i think.
Holy crap Foles is awful at long throws.
That’s a baaad throw by Foles.
Yup. It just hung up there and just about any CB or s could have made a play on that ball.
except for ours
So much for that
man he needs to work on his deep throws
And of course, the bungals don’t do the sensible thing and *run* the ball! Lucky for us.
Graham is looking great tonight. Love seeing that.
Graham is easily having the best passing rushing game by an Eagles DL this year.
What was Maclin doing running out of bounds????
Is colt anderson playing well or what.
I would pin some blame on that pick on Maclin. He needed to play DB. On that pass
Ball was thrown waaaay to far behind him for him to make a play. That pick is entirely on Foles.
He didn’t turn around though. But yeah Foles has some serious issues on deep balls
wow trent cole is having a monster game. he didnt get the tackle on that play, but he absolutely made it happen setting the edge.
man i’m so happy to see this version of trent cole back!
Dline has 6 sacks tonight. Wide 9 was a bunch a crap
Green just making a play there.
Eagles to need them to a FG here.
You must be thinking of another team.
dalton making foles look slow. hahaha
oh c’mon kendricks. wtf was that tackle attempt??
Behold the power of the scrambling ginger!
When you’re that slow, it’s gotta mess with their heads.
Kendricks juked by Dalton that is sad
I keep coming back to the same thought every week about him; doesn’t look like a difference making LB. Could be solid eventually, but not irreplaceable.
Hey there is something we haven’t seen before
So that’s what it looks like when the wheels come off.
Down by 11? LIttle Nicky has them just where he wants them!
not sure i can really blame B Brown on that one. the defender got there at like the same time of the handoff
He’s had two fumbles where he got distracted by penetration. I’m not aware of another back with this problem.
It looked an o-line screwup. Tough watching this group. Even McCoy would really struggle behind this line.
McCoy WAS really struggling behind that line.
looking at the slomo replay, i think the blame is back on Brown.
That’s game. I don’t see this team coming back down 2 scores going into the 4th quarter.
You were here last week, right?
Yeah I don’t see them doing it 2 weeks in a row.
Okay, maybe not this week.
have all of the bengals points been off of turnovers? sheesh
Yup. Off the turnovers and the blocked punt.
I’m not even mad. Lol.
Great. Harbor has back spasms and there isn’t another TE on the roster.
I don’t know why the Bungles are so excited. They stink. I doubt they’ll make the playoffs, and if they do, they’ll be first round roadkill.
Just like last year.
Ha ha maybe we can hire Tiki Barber to teach our players how to hold onto the ball
Harbor is hurt. He’s only out there because the Eagles literally don’t have another TE who can come in.
Boos rain down to end the 3rd qtr.
This is what happens when your entire offense is second stringers, at best
Yo, we WANT the team to loose. Yes, lets see some good play to back up hope for Foles and some of the other guys, but lets tank it brotha’s, give us a better shot at some high draft picks to help this team for next year. If we win a game we go from pick 4 to pick 9 (or something like that)
Amount of injuries they have had on offense is starting to get ridiculous. They don’t have a healthy TE right now and Maclin is the only starter in right now (he’s even been in and out tonight due to ankle/hamstring issues).
i thought mathis was playing today? is he out?
He’s been in and out tonight too in the 2nd half.
Go Lions, Raiders, Panthers, Titans, Cardinals!
Our offense is protecting our draft pick
Defense is still playing hard though. Nice play by DRC.
Not really. He was beaten on the double move and a better or more decisive throw is a TD there. He was also lucky he wasn’t flagged for PI since he never turned around.
You gotta give them credit, there were ample opportunities to quit, but they haven’t.
If Asomugha is the worst FA acquisition of the Reid era, DRC has to be one of my least favorite players of it. All the talent in the world, but no heart and no brains, and he’s celebrating a play he was lucky was an incompletion and not a TD or penalty. I can’t wait until he’s gone.
This is a comedy of errors.
LOL. this game is starting to get ridiculous
“This is just a mess. A huge mess.”
Apt description by Merrill.
I’m afraid Tommy might bum rush the field any second now
I don’t think you can win a SB with Andy Dalton. Noodle arm, and he’s afraid to make the throws you need to make to beat a good team. You’ve got A.J. Green on your team, throw the fricking ball down the field to him and let him make a play.
He does, he does! Green bails him out
And you see it!
Wow what penalty is that
lol thats a new one. something about the defender using “disconcerting defensive signals” or some shit. haha
I had to google that. What the hack
so you actually found what penalty it was? can you send a link? i have no effing clue what happened lol
a defender tried to mimic the snapcount to get the center to snap at the wrong time
oh. i thought that penalty was just called ‘mimicking the snap count” not….. whatever the hell that ref said lol
“disconcerting signals penalty”
…..aaaaand theres the fade to aj green
Well we are heading for another loss.Who’s getting fired tonight? Bobby April?
He should be. This was perhaps the worst special teams performance by an Eagles team I can remember.
As good as anyone to vote off ‘Eagles Island’ after the Eagles are embarrassed again on national TV.
crappy return plus a holding penalty. wow. way to go STs
wouldn’t it be nice if the eagles had a guy you could count on in the red zone every week…
We do — Henery.
so aj green is the only WR with a catch? i’ve only seen DRC matched up with him. does that mean that Nnamdi has been shutting down his side of the field???
never think the eagles were up 13-10 at the half.
Remember when Andy Reid teams were disciplined, smart, and didn’t beat themselves?
What happened to his ability to coach his players to not be idiots?
God this team sucks. Tell me again how Bobby April got the reputation as a good special teams coach? Can we fire him this week?
This season has killed/seriously impaired the reps of several members of the coaching staff including Washburn, Bowles, and Aprile.
Cue up ‘Send In the Clowns’ this was as brutal of a half as Eagles’ football as we have seen all year which is saying something.
Well, the draft pick is safe lol.
has foles connected on a fly once?
This game just reeks of inexperienced players being poorly coached. Bad combination.
On the positive side we do look like a 4 and 9 team.
4 and 10
Merrill just said the stadium is almost completely empty. Can’t blame anyone who left early too. I would have left by this point with the temp. and having to work tomorrow.
Mayock’s right. The Bengals are a mediocre team at best. Being bailed out by your opponent’s ineptitude is not “making big plays”.
Dalton is 10-23 with 92 yards and 1 TD yet the Bengals have put up 34 pts.
This is sad. I’m not even screaming at the TV. Guess I have no emotion left. I’m actually lmao. For those rooting for the high draft pick it’s looking good for another week at least.
Why are those people still sitting in the stands?
I didn’t even care that much about a win. I wanted to see Foles get some snaps against a tough defense. How many plays have the Eagles actually run in the second half. Good Lord what a horrible showing.
2 steps forward, 3 steps back.
Boos are so loud with that TO even from the remaining handful of fans you could hear it on the radio broadcast.
Why does everyone insist that people are going to be lining up to hire Andy Reid when he’s fired at the end of the season? Obviously he’s a smart coach, but it’s pretty clear that something’s off. This team is awful, and it’s all his doing. He looks burned out and I think he probably needs to be away from the game for awhile – I wouldn’t hire him.
He’s not the one turning the ball over! Still he has to go
I agree with you. But I still think that other people, probably people who don’t regularly watch Eagles games, think he’s a good coach. The consensus among non-Eagles fans/analysts seems to be that Andy just needs a change of scenery. I’m with you though. I certainly wouldn’t hire him.
Agreed 100%. He is a guy that screams that he needs a year or two off.
Wow the Bengals are classy. Trying to run up the score on 4th down, then taking cheap blindside shots at coverage guys on a meaningless punt return at the end of the game? Sheesh.
Momentum from the Tampa Bay game . . . and IT’s gone. Players sound universally dejected and rambling generic BS.
Another game on national TV where there was very few people left early in the 4th quarter, mental mistakes galore, and the few fans who were left booing quite loudly.
Better chance the worlds ends on Dec 21st than Andy coming back next year at this point.
