Backups everywhere. Go Eagles.

 


  • ICDogg

    SAFETy

  • DamonL86

    Jets making our backups look good

  • ICDogg

    youch

  • Corry

    Jarrett and Ricky Sapp? That’s more plays than they ever made for the Birds.

  • GermanEagle

    Eagles making the Jets backups look good.

  • ICDogg

    sucktastic

  • Corry

    Nate Allen couldn’t get off the WR block there….not that I really expected him to be able to actually stop a RB with a full head of steam.

    • Anders

      He got off it, but still got blocked while trying to tackle him. The DL on the other hand got man handled.

      • GEagle

        Excuse

  • ICDogg

    I guess the Wildcat is not dead

  • GermanEagle

    Dixon is gone.

    • ICDogg

      Yeah, I think that was a foregone conclusion before the game started

  • ICDogg

    Well, so far, Foles has been able to bounce back after a turnover and score a TD on the next series… let’s see if he can continue that

    • Andy124

      damn you jinxed it.

      • ICDogg

        heh… maybe

        • Flyin

          Maybe he will throw deep for a TD.

  • ICDogg

    Isn’t that what Vick was getting blasted for?

    • GEagle

      Inexcusable…

    • Anders

      yep, but Foles is not Vick so nobody is blasting him

    • Corry

      Yep, but there’s only about 7 of us watching the game.

  • Andy124

    Well, that wasn’t a smart play.

  • GEagle

    Foles better stop watching Vick play…are any WR getting open?

  • dislikedisqus

    It’s like I’m watching the Jadeveon Clowney Bowl. These two teams are playing like 0-16 is in their future.

  • TommyLawlor

    Rough start for Nick Foles so far. The OL isn’t giving him ideal protection, but Nick is also holding the ball too long.

    • GEagle

      Are WR getting open?

  • GermanEagle

    two terrible drives for Foles…

    • TommyLawlor

      Whole offense struggling. No room to run. Not sure if guys are getting open.

      • GermanEagle

        Agreed.

      • GEagle

        Yeah that’s what I’m trying to figure out…Foles eyes seem down field, not sure if guys are open or not

    • dislikedisqus

      Is it a drive if you don’t go anywhere?

  • Andy124

    That was Allen going for the ball and missing wasn’t it?

    • Corry

      yep.

      • GermanEagle

        Unbelievable. Lol

    • Anders

      Safety covering a WR.

      • GEagle

        You are like a walking excuse for Nate Allen lol…is he your long lost son or something?…

        • Anders

          No, but tell me how many safeties can cover a WR?

          • GEagle

            Hahaha if your cover safet can’t gaurd a WR, please tell me wtf exactly can Nate do?

          • GermanEagle

            I have to agree with GEagle here..

          • Anders

            Again tell me how many safeties in the NFL can cover a WR alone?

          • GermanEagle

            Again, Nate Allen sucks.

          • Anders

            Nice answer, but you still didnt answer my original questions. If you blast Allen for not sticking with a shifty WR, then you need to tell me who can.

          • GEagle

            Wasn’t Chung just being worked out as a Nickle corner? Lol you know, under consideration for a role that asks an average safety to defend starting WRs? Lol

          • GEagle

            Despise him!!!

          • Anders

            Can we make a deal? Nobody here mentions Allen again? We all know you will bash him for what ever crazy reason and you know I will reply and tell you to learn about coverage.

          • GEagle

            No, I don’t accept your deal!! The bum will get called out til I start getting my second round moneys worth lol…sorry..
            ..
            I don’t negotiate with terrorists lol
            ..
            But my beloved Foles is stinking it up if that makes you feel bettet

  • ICDogg

    nice throw

  • GEagle

    McCoy blasted him!!

  • Corry

    Man, that’s like 2012 too…we knock the ball loose and it bounces right to the opposing team.

    • Andy124

      Complete with no blocking and a turnover.

  • GermanEagle

    If McCoy didn’t have hands of stone he’d be in the hall of fame.

  • Corry

    It’s cool that we’re trying to help Matt Simms land a job, but seriously…stop it.

  • ICDogg

    OK… I’m calling the next play… Shepard end-around

    • ICDogg

      oh well, it was worth a shot

  • ICDogg

    Will that be it for Foles tonight?

    • GEagle

      Better not be…keep him out there til he gets going, although the Oline isn’t holding up and we will need him soon lol

      • ICDogg

        I’d get him out of there. Most important thing tonight is not to get anyone hurt who matters.

        • GEagle

          Hard to argue against that

  • Crus57

    Getting sick of ex-Eagles beating up current Eagles. Guess this might be a Giants preview.

  • GermanEagle

    I guess we’re getting a better feeling how Foles reacts under pressure..

  • GEagle

    hey Nate Allen didn’t give up a pass! How about that

  • GermanEagle

    nice play by Allen. Can I mention him now, Anders?!

  • aub32

    How about that Rex Ryan getting JJ to tackle the opposing team

    • Anders

      Rex Ryan > Castillo as DC :P

      • TheRogerPodacter

        so…… Juan Castillo for head coach!!!! : P

  • Corry

    Foles isn’t playing well, but holy crap his receivers aren’t helping him.

    • aub32

      Foles isn’t helping them either with throws that are behind them.

      • Corry

        The offense is an all around shit show.

        • aub32

          except for Brown

  • GEagle

    Clay harbor and Ertz can’t do that Crap…Can’t put that drive on foles

  • ICDogg

    Can’t blame Foles for that drive

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Pre-season MVP: Donnie Jones

  • ICDogg

    good pressure

  • GermanEagle

    foles doesn’t look calm at all.

  • Flyin

    Looked like clay missed block on 2nd down and drops pass on 3rd.

    • GermanEagle

      It was not a good throw though.

      • ICDogg

        no, but should have been caught

        • GermanEagle

          Agreed. If you can touch it, you can….

          • Andy124

            That’s a stupid saying. But I think we all agree. Throw wasn’t great, but it should have been caught.

          • GEagle

            That’s always been my motto with the ladies

      • Flyin

        The lack of not blocking anyone was pitiful, he wasn’t looking to block.

  • aub32

    the bad vs the worse

    • Crus57

      Isn’t that every Preseason Game 4 ever?

      • ICDogg

        pretty much.

    • GEagle

      There is some good going on…mcCoy bouncing back from a bad game

  • GermanEagle

    if Acho doesn’t make the team I will be gutted!

    • ICDogg

      I think he will

    • Anders

      I say McCoy and Acho is making this team

    • GEagle

      I will be gutted? Were the hell does a German fan learn that type of slang? Impressive!! Lol

      • GermanEagle

        Living 6 years in England I guess. ;)

  • ICDogg

    Casey = hamstring will not return

  • Andy124

    Here we go.

    • ICDogg

      (Dog arrives with Bud Lite)

      • Andy124

        I wish.

    • Andy124

      nevermind.

  • Anders

    Can we please just play Polk and Tucker instead of Brown.

  • DamonL86

    Don’t see any bubble players on offense stepping up so far

    • GermanEagle

      It’s because the whole offense is in a bubble!

  • GermanEagle

    that was Ertz’s 10th drop this off season.

    • Anders

      He should be forced to use the JUGs machine 100 times per day.

      • ICDogg

        Why not… Avant does and he’s got good hands

  • ICDogg

    Kurt Coleman took out his legs

    • Corry

      It was a good tackle from the replays.

      • ICDogg

        yep

    • TommyLawlor

      The Enforcer.

  • Corry

    48 is such a weird number for a linebacker…

    • TommyLawlor

      It really is.

  • ICDogg

    Poyer with the strip

    • Corry

      Are we allowed to recover fumbles like that? I haven’t seen it in so long i thought they changed the rules.

      • Dragon_Eagle

        Recover is OK, but the refs clearly missed something there. No way Eagles DBs are allowed to cause turnovers. Nuh uh.

    • TommyLawlor

      He’s come on the last couple of games.

      • Flyin

        Any chance he makes the 53?

        • Anders

          He is the 4th best healthy CB

  • ICDogg

    The Maehlman

  • DamonL86

    Momah just made the team i think

    • GermanEagle

      Are you serious?!

      • DamonL86

        Lol no

        • GermanEagle

          Pew. Lol

      • Crus57

        I think it was a joke based on the fact that he actually caught a pass.

        • TheRogerPodacter

          i missed the first half and i’m going through the thread now and i’m like “MOMAH CAUGHT A PASS?! WHAT?!” LOL

  • GEagle

    The turnovers will come boys!!

  • Corry

    What I’ve learned from tonight’s game is that if we had Rex Ryan as a DC our last 2 or 3 Andy Reid drafts probably wouldn’t have sucked as bad.

  • GEagle

    St nick is heating up

  • aub32

    what Foles had a ball tipped at the line…but…but…he’s 6’6″ and the fly swatters….how could that happen

  • ICDogg

    JJ looking like a player

  • Crus57

    One thing the fast tempo will mean is that challenge flags (theirs and ours) will have to come out really quickly.

  • aub32

    Baldy just echoed every Eagles’ fans sentiments about JJ

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Missed it. What did say?

      • ICDogg

        he made more plays tonight than he did his entire time with the Eagles

        • TommyLawlor

          The Wide-9 did JaiJar no favors.

        • Dragon_Eagle

          I suppose it helps to have competent defensive coaches and put in a system that works for your skill set.

        • GEagle

          watch him get cut and end up back with us, only to stink again lol

          • aub32

            HA!

      • aub32

        JJ has made more plays in this game than he ever did as an eagle

  • GEagle

    How about them turnovers!!

    • Flyin

      Ha! I’m on a 5-10 second delay on NFL prelive

      • GEagle

        Maybe I’m just psychic

        • Flyin

          I am psychic, so I would know.

          • GEagle

            Lol touche

  • DamonL86

    can foles hold the ball any longer

    • Corry

      his receivers aren’t helping him. He does still look awful though.

      • Anders

        The RB was open

        • GEagle

          So was Nate Allen’s man…..:) sorry, had to do it.

  • GEagle

    Looks like having your college coach isn’t going to save Casey with Acho and Knott balling

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I think we should punt here. I just want to watch our defense.

  • Corry

    Our WR depth is sorry.

    • aub32

      that’s what happens when two guys who should start tear their ACL

      • Corry

        I’m not sure about Benn since he’s never really done much in the league, but yeah, losing Maclin hurts a lot. I was also hoping for someone down the depth chart to actually look decent against the Jets backups but…

        • Anders

          The Jets have good depth on coverage guys

          • Corry

            I don’t know much about the Jets so I’ll take your word for it.

  • DamonL86

    we cut the lead in half

  • GermanEagle

    this is the worst Foles I have seen in Eagles green so far. Ever.

  • aub32

    Should have traded Foles yesterday. His value is plummeting

    • TommyLawlor

      Dude, don’t be silly. Ugly game. Poor play all around. Doesn’t mean anything in the grand scheme. Anyone really studying the game will see the struggles of the blockers and skill players.

      • ICDogg

        I don’t think he was serious

      • aub32

        I’m kidding Tommy. Foles isn’t there yet in my opinion, but I think he has a chance if he can gain the confidence to throw the ball down the field. I didn’t think anyone would take that remark seriously.

        • TommyLawlor

          My apologies.

          • aub32

            No prob. I guess I should have been a little more obvious.

  • GEagle

    That’s how you play NT…lovin Benny

  • GEagle

    Anders…did you just hear what Baldi just said about safeties and how they have to cover WR?

    • Anders

      I know they have to cover them, but the WR got the clear advantages.

  • DamonL86

    Lindley should be gone

  • GEagle

    Liked what I saw out of Krugs….want to see more

  • Crus57

    Oh look, Dixon is on the floor on a key running play.

    • GEagle

      Dude is like a British prostitute…always flailing around on his back

      • Crus57

        Other country’s prostitutes don’t end up on their backs?

        • Corry

          maybe they don’t flail around?

        • GEagle

          It’s a joke we always use with Mma fighters, thought it was a well known joke..guess not

      • http://letsrunhomey.blogspot.com Jay Austin

        I was more curious about your expertise…
        What corners of London do we need to visit when the Eagles eventually make the trip to Wembley…

        • Crus57

          I am kinda dreading when the Eagles come to Wembley, because there’s no way I am missing that, but I doubt it will be cheap.

          • GEagle

            Always wanted to see David Icke there…that Crackpot is a must see lol….Waiting for Bisping vs. Anderson Silva in wembly but that would be the arena

        • GEagle

          lol…sorry, haven’t been to lOndon since I was 12, I didn’t become a world wide prostition connoisseur til I turned 14

  • Corry

    Jake Knott is a player. if he gets more consistent he could be one hell of a UDFA find.

  • Anders

    What a weak call

    • Flyin

      Yeah, total BS! Ref must of had a bad angle.

    • aub32

      What you mean this is football. You can’t hit the QB

  • Crus57

    Colt was in midair when the QB threw.. good luck changing direction then.

    • Anders

      His helm slighty touches the QBs helm, so he got flagged. But I have yet to see a holding and the Jets OTs are really holding

  • Ben Hert

    Tremendously awful call.

  • ICDogg

    E. Brown showing something

    • Corry

      He seems like a bit of a one trick pony though. He’s good at that one trick but still…

    • Crus57

      Great body control from him to arc his arm around and hit the ball.

  • GEagle

    Everette brown is lucky he is showing up because McCoy performed real well

  • GEagle

    Anyone see Chris Stueber use Geno Smith As a prospect comparison for Bridgewater?

  • Flyin

    Tommy, are you watching the UNC game too?

    • GEagle

      Stopped watching it a while ago so feel free to provide Clowney updates

      • Flyin

        I am not watching it, but curious about how UNC looks.

        • GEagle

          They couldn’t stop SC in the first, ur I stopped watching

  • ICDogg

    That was a classic Andy/Marty situation there, having the time run out on the half without getting a FG attempt.— Jimmy Kempski (@JimmyKempski) August 30, 2013

  • Arby1

    After tonight, Casey Matthews gonna have a whole lot more time to sit around the dinner table talking football with the Matthews family.
