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.
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 . . . .
Has the team “Quit” (or some players at least) on Reid?
Rally caps on!!!
Tommy, I’m sorry you never got that shutout.
Ok what would Miracle at the Meadowlands III look like?
Andy keeps his job.
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.
I would like to see more Bryce Brown blended in the receiving game…
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.
That’s just silly. Brown is probably a bit faster, but not nearly the threat Shady is in the open field.
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
Do you agree with him that Shady has pedestrian speed?
He’s really, really not a fast running back. I’d call him firmly average
Any guesses how many current Eagles won’t be playing for anyone next year?
Do you want to go the other way . . . the list may be much shorter
That’s a little harsh, I don’t see anyone who wouldn’t be a passable backup in the cfl.
And Riley Cooper is not that good.
No idea what he was doing there. Looked like peewee.
Riley Cooper has trouble tracking long passes . . . not as bad as Nnamdi.
But he’s not the answer to our “Big WR” prayers.
Riley’s development has been hurt by erratic QB play. I’m not sure what to think of him.
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.
…And poor QB play.
Shades of the Old Redskins Counter Trey
At least we get to end this sweaty nightmare of a season listening to Brian Billick & Thom Brennaman.
Not great, but imagine how bad Joe Buck would be with the Giants winning big.
That’s like going to hell and finding out that dinner is veggie meatloaf.
Got switched to the Detroit/Chicago game, soooo…mebbe dat Cleveland game?
Fox switched over to the Bears Lions game. I’m actually glad
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.
Gotta be careful about making too much of a season finale. Brutally cold. Season is over. Coaching change coming.
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.
Wait, this means the UK (via NFL Gamepass) is getting “better” coverage than the US right now? bizarre.
Live coverage of all NFL games.
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?
It’s back. meh.
3 headed monster at RB when the game is basically over?
Why not in Week 3?
It’d be kinda cool if Andy just decided to run it on every play for a drive or two, just for a finale.
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.
Damaris is showing he wants to be on this team next year
So far, hanging up blinds has been far more exciting/rewarding.
I’m trying to get it all done before the Draft Pick Bowl…
Last quarter for Andy Reid. I’m shocked he has two time-outs left.
15 minutes until the time’s REALLY ours.
Nice! You were saving that one, weren’t you?
For about three years, sadly.
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.
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.
Nnamdi’s really played his way into a contract renegotiation, huh? What’s the league minimum next year?
Eli’s really done a fantastic job of loudly and clearly calling out the Mike on every play. Hats off.
Kurt Coleman takes crazier angles than Fox News.
How long have you waited to use that line?
if Coleman were like Fox News he would be all pro. Check the ratings.
Has Nnamdi been benched?
“Automatic First Down”
I think that’s how I’ll remember this defense.
Along with King “1st & 20″ Dunlap.
His fiefdom is vast.
There is NO ONE I really want to watch on this defense.
We have the worst tackling secondary I think I have ever seen
and that’s AFTER trading asante
Marsh has shut down the passing game.
Since he’s come in, the Giants have been scared to throw the ball.
The Philly fans in New York have started the “Eagles Suck!” chant… about 12 games too late.
Trent Cole . . . haven’t heard his name today
Nice Rhino dance!
That actually was kinda entertaining.
DRC was ALMOST able to cover the 250 pound fullback. #babysteps
Was just about to write that.
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.
Watching Browns Steelers, Big Ben is definitely too hurt to really play. Not hurt bad, but no escapeability.
Lurie could have improved both public relations AND the defense by allowing one lucky fan to play safety today.
Remember when fans would offer to pay to be hit by Dawkins? I think they’d pay to tackle Maclin now.
They’d make enough $$ to offset his contract…
I dunno, you’d want to get your money’s worth, and he’d just tackle himself after 2 yards of RAC.
You’re right… plus, he’d be injured after the first hit.
Trent Edwards Era!!
Can you hear the NFL films music???
Hey, at least they’re talented!
Andy Reid goes out with Trent Edwards at QB. That’ll be an impossible trivia question in about 3-4 years
Edwards sort of reminds me of Pedersen.
Out the way he came in
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?
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
If Trent Edwards leads us to a comeback win, that would be the greatest Miracle of the Meadowlands ever.
Frankly I would class that as the mass hysteria induced hallucination.. of the meadowlands.
6 and a half minutes. When do the frequent sideline shots of the doomed coach show up?
JPP runs down Bryce Brown. That’s about right.
But you have to like MM calling the runs
The last time MM saw runs like this was the morning after an all-you-can-eat burrito party.
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.
Probability that Andy Reid flips off the media at the post-game press conference? 30%.
Probability that the media flips off Andy Reid? 85%
T-Law . . .
Would you mind NOT doing a DGR?
Read this thread title. The DGR is summed up perfectly in that one word.
Big Dix back to back tackles.
Where’s he been all year?
Eating, by the look of him.
Chilling, hating Washburn, eating cheetos.
Are you prepping us for a Dix-Cox D-line?
Unsolicited home improvement update: The blinds are up in the kitchen.
Cabinet refinishing imminent.
Houston has nothing left in the tank.
They’ve gone from 1st seed to 3rd in the AFC.
Good chance of being 1-and-done.
Andy’s going to finish his last game with TWO timeouts????
Same as opening with an onside kick, he’s trying a lot of wacky things here. Wild Andy!
Giants coaches saying their goodbyes to Reid on the field. Pretty sad
Just me or does cutler look sickly
Time to don your eye-patches and skull-laden shoulder pads, everybody!
Also, the Raiders are on…
They’ve won before for us in the last week…
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…
Andy looking pretty ragged
Casting thought for the Andy Reid biopic? Philip Seymour Hoffman…
2012 epitaph: MVP – Jason Peters
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.
