    Here’s hoping some young players make some plays. Curry, Hunt, Johnson, Brown, I am looking at you guys. Vick, let’s see some magic one last time.

  2. 2 ACViking said at 2:41 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    This year was what Eagles fooball was all about from ’62 – ’76.

    No saying it’s not the start of a similar cycle.

    But this is dreadful . . . .

    Tommy, I’m sorry you never got that shutout.

    Re: Firing a Coach in Mid-Game

    It has happened in the NFL.

    In game 3 of the 1974 season, the Colts were beaten at the Vet by the Eagles.

    Colts owner Jim Irsay Sr. came down to the sidelines and fired head coach Howard Schnellenberger in middle of the game.

    So it’s happened.

    It just won’t happen today.

    Way to take out the ref King.

  9. 9 shah8 said at 2:51 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    I would like to see more Bryce Brown blended in the receiving game…

  10. 10 shah8 said at 2:52 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Not to say McCoy isn’t effective, but BB is more of a take it to the house threat–he makes clear that Shady is a bit closer to pedestrian speed.

  11. 11 scott_mather said at 3:09 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    That’s just silly. Brown is probably a bit faster, but not nearly the threat Shady is in the open field.

  12. 12 Neil said at 3:11 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    No, he’s right. If you give Mccoy a guy to get around, he will probably get around him, but he doesn’t have the straightline speed to outrun a whole defense for a td

  13. 13 scott_mather said at 3:15 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Do you agree with him that Shady has pedestrian speed?

  14. 14 Neil said at 3:35 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    He’s really, really not a fast running back. I’d call him firmly average

  15. 15 Neil said at 3:35 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    He’s really, really not a fast running back. I’d call him firmly average

  16. 16 scott_mather said at 3:09 PM on December 30th, 2012:

  17. 17 NoDecaf said at 2:51 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Any guesses how many current Eagles won’t be playing for anyone next year?

  18. 18 ACViking said at 2:54 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Do you want to go the other way . . . the list may be much shorter

  19. 19 Khidr9 said at 2:57 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    That’s a little harsh, I don’t see anyone who wouldn’t be a passable backup in the cfl.

  20. 20 shah8 said at 2:53 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    And Riley Cooper is not that good.

  21. 21 Daniel said at 2:54 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    No idea what he was doing there. Looked like peewee.

  22. 22 ACViking said at 2:55 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Riley Cooper has trouble tracking long passes . . . not as bad as Nnamdi.

    But he’s not the answer to our “Big WR” prayers.

  23. 23 TommyLawlor said at 3:01 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Riley’s development has been hurt by erratic QB play. I’m not sure what to think of him.

  24. 24 shah8 said at 3:04 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    He doesn’t have good ball instincts. Virtually the only time he ever had a good non-bangbang pass play was that catch from Kolb vs the Titans… And not to be all Al Davis, but the boy ain’t fast enough. The combination of low speed and poor ball skillz is a killer.

  25. 25 Baloophi said at 3:12 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    …And poor QB play.

  26. 26 ACViking said at 2:57 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Shades of the Old Redskins Counter Trey

  27. 27 scott_mather said at 2:57 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    At least we get to end this sweaty nightmare of a season listening to Brian Billick & Thom Brennaman.

  28. 28 Crus57 said at 2:58 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Not great, but imagine how bad Joe Buck would be with the Giants winning big.

  29. 29 TommyLawlor said at 3:00 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    That’s like going to hell and finding out that dinner is veggie meatloaf.

  30. 30 shah8 said at 3:00 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Got switched to the Detroit/Chicago game, soooo…mebbe dat Cleveland game?

  31. 31 eagles2zc said at 3:00 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Fox switched over to the Bears Lions game. I’m actually glad

  32. 32 Gregory Post said at 3:01 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Tommy, where do we go from here? I thought we were going to lose but…oh boy. This Giants team scored 14 points over the last two games. They have 35 in the first half.

  33. 33 TommyLawlor said at 3:03 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Gotta be careful about making too much of a season finale. Brutally cold. Season is over. Coaching change coming.

  34. 34 John Ormond said at 3:03 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Fox just switched ro Chicago vs. Detroit, and the game is blacked out on the season ticket. I guess I’ll miss the end of the AR era. Even though the game (season) was terrible, I’d still like to see it.

  35. 35 Crus57 said at 3:04 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Wait, this means the UK (via NFL Gamepass) is getting “better” coverage than the US right now? bizarre.

  39. 39 Khidr9 said at 3:04 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    so when you write your detailed retrospective of the Andy Reid error and what went wrong – do you start with the 2009 moves, focus on playing fantasy football in FA two years ago, or did the seeds of this collapse start earlier, the loss of jj?

  40. 40 John Ormond said at 3:05 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    It’s back. meh.

  41. 41 Crus57 said at 3:08 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    3 headed monster at RB when the game is basically over?

  42. 42 TommyLawlor said at 3:14 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Why not in Week 3?

  43. 43 Crus57 said at 3:15 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    It’d be kinda cool if Andy just decided to run it on every play for a drive or two, just for a finale.

  44. 44 Crus57 said at 3:15 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    It’d be kinda cool if Andy just decided to run it on every play for a drive or two, just for a finale.

  45. 45 xeynon said at 3:09 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Was Vick doing his best Foles impression with the underthrown deep ball there? That wasn’t good coverage from Corey Webster, guys. A well thrown ball there is a TD.

  46. 46 Brandon Gleklen said at 3:09 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Damaris is showing he wants to be on this team next year

  47. 47 Baloophi said at 3:13 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    So far, hanging up blinds has been far more exciting/rewarding.

  48. 48 TommyLawlor said at 3:14 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    I’m jealous.

  49. 49 Baloophi said at 3:15 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Last quarter for Andy Reid. I’m shocked he has two time-outs left.

  53. 53 Baloophi said at 3:19 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    15 minutes until the time’s REALLY ours.

  54. 54 Arby1 said at 3:27 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Nice! You were saving that one, weren’t you?

  55. 55 Baloophi said at 3:27 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    For about three years, sadly.

  56. 56 CalSFro said at 3:18 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    After reading all about Chip Kelly the last few days, I started to wonder…what if he turned down the Tampa Bay job, and in turn would be more interested in the Philly job, because of the running back situation?

    I mean, we’re putting all this emphasis on the QB situation. But last year, Tampa Bay was pretty mediocre in the RB area. Chip Kelly loves to run the ball. Maybe our stable of running backs will be what he finds most enticing if he comes here?

    Dunno, just trying to keep my spirits up during the game.

  57. 57 TommyLawlor said at 3:19 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    I think the Tampa situation scared Chip and he also wanted to stay at Oregon with all the talent he had coming back. Was hoping for a National Title.

  58. 58 Baloophi said at 3:20 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Nnamdi’s really played his way into a contract renegotiation, huh? What’s the league minimum next year?

  59. 59 Baloophi said at 3:21 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Eli’s really done a fantastic job of loudly and clearly calling out the Mike on every play. Hats off.

  60. 60 Baloophi said at 3:26 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Kurt Coleman takes crazier angles than Fox News.

  61. 61 TommyLawlor said at 3:27 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    How long have you waited to use that line?

  62. 62 Baloophi said at 3:28 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Too long.

  63. 63 Julescat said at 8:36 AM on December 31st, 2012:

    if Coleman were like Fox News he would be all pro. Check the ratings.

    Has Nnamdi been benched?

  65. 65 Baloophi said at 3:30 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    “Automatic First Down”

    I think that’s how I’ll remember this defense.

  66. 66 Crus57 said at 3:30 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Along with King “1st & 20” Dunlap.

  67. 67 Baloophi said at 3:32 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    His fiefdom is vast.

  68. 68 ACViking said at 3:31 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    There is NO ONE I really want to watch on this defense.

  69. 69 lilmc said at 3:31 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    We have the worst tackling secondary I think I have ever seen

  70. 70 Khidr9 said at 3:33 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    and that’s AFTER trading asante

  71. 71 ACViking said at 3:31 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Marsh has shut down the passing game.

    Since he’s come in, the Giants have been scared to throw the ball.

  72. 72 Baloophi said at 3:32 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    The Philly fans in New York have started the “Eagles Suck!” chant… about 12 games too late.

  73. 73 ACViking said at 3:33 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Trent Cole . . . haven’t heard his name today

  74. 74 TommyLawlor said at 3:34 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Very quiet.

  75. 75 Arby1 said at 3:33 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Nice Rhino dance!

  76. 76 TommyLawlor said at 3:34 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    That actually was kinda entertaining.

  77. 77 Baloophi said at 3:34 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    DRC was ALMOST able to cover the 250 pound fullback. #babysteps

  78. 78 Daniel said at 3:35 PM on December 30th, 2012:

  80. 80 xeynon said at 3:35 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    250 pound fullback who was an UDFA, rarely touches the ball, and hasn’t scored a TD all year. Let’s not undersell DRC’s progress here.

    Lurie could have improved both public relations AND the defense by allowing one lucky fan to play safety today.

  86. 86 Crus57 said at 3:38 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Remember when fans would offer to pay to be hit by Dawkins? I think they’d pay to tackle Maclin now.

  87. 87 Baloophi said at 3:40 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    They’d make enough $$ to offset his contract…

  88. 88 Crus57 said at 3:41 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    I dunno, you’d want to get your money’s worth, and he’d just tackle himself after 2 yards of RAC.

  89. 89 Baloophi said at 3:42 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    You’re right… plus, he’d be injured after the first hit.

  90. 90 Baloophi said at 3:42 PM on December 30th, 2012:

  95. 95 Steag209 said at 3:40 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Andy Reid goes out with Trent Edwards at QB. That’ll be an impossible trivia question in about 3-4 years

  96. 96 ACViking said at 3:41 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Edwards sort of reminds me of Pedersen.

    Out the way he came in

  97. 97 Baloophi said at 3:42 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Fantastic observation. If there’s some sort of crazy halfback pass to end the game, the answer to “who threw the last pass for Andy Reid” could be Dion Lewis…

    Titans v. Jax

    The Titans have 38 points on 28 offensive plays.

    2 punt return TDs

    2 INT returns for TDs.

    Both PRs by Reynaud

    Both INTs by Zach Brown.

    Do the Eagles have any points off of a turnover this year after Game 1?

  100. 100 Steag209 said at 3:42 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Isn’t this also the year that has set a record for INT returns for a TD, yet we have 0? wtf? I hate this year so much

  101. 101 TommyLawlor said at 3:42 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    If Trent Edwards leads us to a comeback win, that would be the greatest Miracle of the Meadowlands ever.

    JPP runs down Bryce Brown. That’s about right.

  106. 106 ACViking said at 3:46 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    But you have to like MM calling the runs

  107. 107 Baloophi said at 3:48 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    The last time MM saw runs like this was the morning after an all-you-can-eat burrito party.

  108. 108 xeynon said at 3:45 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Soooo… the Bears commit an EXTREMELY stupid unnecessary roughness penalty by hitting Matt Stafford after he slides six yards short of a first down on 3rd and 10, allowing the Lions to continue a drive which leads quickly to a TD. Please tell me the Giants aren’t going to get into the playoffs again like this.

  109. 109 Baloophi said at 3:46 PM on December 30th, 2012:

    Probability that Andy Reid flips off the media at the post-game press conference? 30%.

    How sad is that? We’ve been reduced to rooting for a chance to move up in the draft.

    How sad? We’re talking about a year where we can’t get a franchise qb.

    That is pretty sad, isn’t it…

    Ugly? Hideous, grotesque, horrid, repugnant, and revolting. Did I miss anything?

    This secondary is shockingly bad and it wouldn’t stun me if they have 4 new starters (2 safeties and 2 CBs) next year.

    Defense is by far and away the biggest challenge the incoming coach will have to fix because there isn’t a lot of young building blocks there (besides Cox and Graham and maybe you throw in Kendricks & Boykins) and little holdover veteran talent capable of playing at a high level next year. Nnamdi’s gone. Ditto Jenkins. I expect they don’t bring back DRC after his play and effort this year. Cole had a really down year.
