No surprise inactives.
DJax has to make that catch.
Finding a way to lose…
Good play by fletch
How was it a good play? He got burned badly and the WR dropped it
Watch the replay…he forced that incompletion
He got his hand in there to knock it away.
Good play by #24.
Nate Allen has one job with single high safety and he can’t even so that. He sucks
Not sure what Fletcher was celebrating on that last one. Was a drop by the WR. Not a play by him
He got his hand in and knocked it out, per replay.
No…he made that play
Nate Allen is a joke
The whole defense is a joke.
The Eli strategy – wait a few beats and toss it up deep for grabs. Nate Allen unable to handle deep coverage responsibility.
Defense is brutal to watch
This is going to be a long afternoon.
so, this could be a long game
I’ll give 3 first round picks for Jarius Byrd right now
I’ll let you all sacrifice me to the sun gods to get Byrd, just so the rest of you don’t have to watch this dumpster fire.
sir, you’re a scholar and a gentleman
Replacing a crappy safety with a good one is not going to cure all that ails this defense. We’re going to need to draft defense early and often over the next few years. QB is the only position on the offensive side of the ball that they should even consider spending a high pick on next season.
You would be surprised how much better Cary and Fletch would look with a playmaking safety
Fletcher looks really bad. CB needs to be priority #1 in the draft. I’m on the Bradley Roby bandwagon.
every position is a priority
How does Fletch look bad? He’s the only DB who’s made a play so far today!
Disagree. Fletcher was the 3rd best cornerback on the Rams last year and Williams the 4th best cornerback on the Ravens, neither of which are elite defenses.
Apparently you aren’t watching this game lol
Nate Allen never needs to play another snap for us and badly fletcher as well this d prob couldn’t stop a pop Warner team
why the hate for fletch, he broke up the first one that Allen let get over his head.
Is would seriously bench Nate right now for the rest of ether game….how the hell could Kurt or colt be any worse then this pigeon?
Same old Eagles.
There is not one person on this defense that offensive coordinators need to scheme around and adjust to. In fact, I think they can easily exploit just about any one of them they choose…
They couldn’t cover a bed if they were sheets I’m sick of it should have got rob Ryan as well and a db instead of ertz
Is your offense having trouble protecting the passer, running the ball, or getting receivers down the field in the deep passing game? We have the cure for you. It’s called the 2013 Philadelphia Eagles defense.
I love how the broadcast talks about how we were so aware of getting beat deep, and then we promptly get beaten deep.
Just wait until they mention how vick is protecting the ball better, and didn’t turn it over last week.
RUN the fucking ball!!!!!!nRun the he fuckin BALL!!! Run the fuckin Ball!,
You have to make that throw
How is it possible to go hoarse from yelling in the first 3 minutes of a gam
That throw is what separates a middling guy like Vick from the elite quarterbacks. There’s no way Rodgers or Brees doesn’t hit Ertz there.
pretty good rb though
Indeed, he’s a great running quarterback. If he were only a bit more accurate and consistent about beating the blitz he really could be a top quarterback.
Does Chippah have so little faith in this passing game that he’s going to run it on 3rd and 9?
Wait…The giants accepted that penalty? That’ll teach me to walk away from the game.
It’s clear the Giants have nothing to be afraid of.
Yeah, I think they were probably thinking “if Kelly doesn’t want to throw the ball in a 3rd and 9 situation, he’s going to be really afraid of something bad happening on 3rd and 19″. Unfortunately for the Giants they decided to go with man coverage and not spy Vick.
Our offense needs to score 50 pts a game to have a shot a winning
bleep me, Vick! Why didn’t Coughlin take the stupid punt!?
Dunno, that was mysterious lol.
Eagles ran on 3rd and 9.
Kelly was going to go for that 4th down and 3 or so.
OL is having a terrible game.
Yeah, and Giants DL has been terrible so far this year. Puzzling.
The DTs have been good.
Good thing they are going up against a weak underachieving DL.
Wow that is terrible
Oh god now the defense has to come back on the field… I can’t look…
The defense needs to show something here. Last drive was way too easy for the Giants.
They have showed nothing so far
They might as well not even line up
Vick never ducks out early, but did anyone else think he could gain a few extra yards on that 2nd down play where he ran out of bounds 2 yards short? Seemed he had plenty of space to get the first on that play.
Seems like he was losing his balance and that’s why he stepped out.
Could be. I didn’t see a replay so I could not tell. It just seemed he had the space.
looked like his inertia wouldn’t let him stay in.
EJ Manuel thought so, too.
In the end, you have to expect your running game to be able to get that last yard.
weird kick off
I hate looking at this defense constructed by someone who has barely had success with d on any team he’s been a part of
Is there any reason Eli shouldn’t air it out deep on virtually every play?
They better not trot Nate Allen out there again. Only Nate could make me so desperate to see Kurt or Colt
Hopefully the jets get rid of sexy rexy then maybe we can get him
to play safety?
Get Buddy Nix on the phone right now. I want Jairus Byrd playing for us next week. I’ve had enough of Nate Allen.
Doesn’t matter we still have a bad dc
can we just onside kick every time
Don’t worry guys, Bill Davis will watch the game film 10 times and see fundamental improvement.
Ha might as well
Could this possibly be worst defense in nfl history at least they will get noticed for something
I thought it couldn’t get any worse from last year. The Eagles always prove me wrong.
When your D is bad, why make it worse by switching fronts and having players miscast? Can only be a move to build for the future…
I miss the wide-9.
I miss jj our defense sadly died with him rip
turf monster — our defensive MVP
Well, if Nate can’t cover…. Might as well rush him every time
Knowing Davis, he’s likely our new OLB. Boykin lost the job apparently.
If people are wondering, so far Davis have called a pretty standard game.
We do just have crap talent on defense and lets not kid our self, the Giants have more talent than they showed first 4 games.
My biggest problem so far has been Vick as a passer. Our passing game is doing nothing.
loooool Eli Manning does such funny things.
Vick is not the issue at all
He’s certainly not as big an issue as the defense, that is true. But he is an issue. An F defense will hurt your Super Bowl chances more than a B- quarterback, but they’ll both hurt you.
No F defense will get you a Super Bowl. Not even for Peyton Manning.
0 passing yards for Eagles, gross.
shallow cross for first down here
Ya the giants offense is playing defense for the eagles
I credit Nate Allen for that one!
Our defense plays better BEFORE the play.
If we could stop a team one time just one time we wouldn’t have to play so desperate
that’s an awfully sporting handicap they just gave our d
With the way things are going, Eli is making the best plays for our defense.
3rd and 25 watch the crossing route
Here comes a TD throw.
Nah, Eli will just scramble through the missed tackles for a first down
The Giants’ offense is obviously trying to challenge itself by making the yardage-to-go longer.
if you’re coughlin you go for it here right?
Thank u for not celebrating cary
what is the opposing team doing here?
that guy kicked the ball with his foot… strange tactic, cant say i’ve seen it
Thank you Cary Williams, a shallow cross didn’t go for 30 yards!
Lets get the local high school team on d see what they can do
I’ll fly over from Utah and play safety.
Ok, now we got ‘em overconfident. Time to…..
Thank you giants for being so generous to our defense!
Being the worst team in the league sucks
Nah, the Jags are still in the league. Take comfort in that.
Get back on the Jacksonville boards, kid.
Manning looked a little gun-shy on the missed wheel route to Wilson
He was probably expecting to see Matthews.
Celek making contributions! Getting fouled!
And teaching Ertz how To drop balls
Do we have a completion yet?
Guess he didnt see JPP coming right at him
This is pathetic
How did peters leave JPP unblocked?
hot receiver was McCoy.
Vick tried to throw OVER Pierre-Paul. Not around him.
Man, trying to follow this on the NFL Game center sucks. Just said Vick passed incomplete to himself.
Batted ball by JPP
That makes more sense.
Jpp will have a career day today
Offense is just regressing. If McCoy goes down we’ll never see another win.
Nice punt at least.
He regained his momentum
right? He made another drive – should’ve been points.
Yep, maybe a challenge
dont think you can challenge forward progress.
Good point, never seen done, but maybe cause it never happened?
If any player is ever having a down year, playing the Eagles sure can fix it.
We didn’t yet the safety???
Oh that’s bullshit! That’s a safety!
He actually started forward progress again in the end zone that should be a safety
Normally I think it’s idiotic to say Vick is “a running back playing quarterback”. Today he really does look like a running back playing quarterback though. Partially it’s the play calling. Is Kelly trying to get him hurt?
I think Kelly is trying to get yards anyway he can…
We can’t challenge the spot?
It’s a waste of a challenge because they would put it on the one
The defensive player let him go and he started again though
Did that look like it was going to be a flea-flicker to anyone else?
To paraphrase Bill Parcells, this game is what the records say it is – an ugly contest between two bottom dwellers.
Chip is on my damn nerves. Shady NEEDS 30 carries can every single division game and I don’t care how many players opponents put in the he box…..
This line is struggling, how about our offensive genius help them out, run the rock and let them get into a Rythm
Doesn’t look at all like Oregon. Looks like Shurmur’s Browns. I’m really disappointed in Kelly.
We are the worst team in the league don’t expect to much
Cmon man… worse than jacksonville? Really?
At least we have a quarterback who is competent… Sometimes.
Actually there’s the QB and Shady. Then I get lost on giving names.
Even if we got a safety or defense won’t keep us in the game
The D just had a good series. Maybe they’ll wake up and get going.
Why not shut off the TV and call it a day? SMH at soft eagles fans waiving the white flag in the 2nd quarter
Eagles 1st down – someone drop!
Vick completed his first pass! PANIC!
FINALLY a checkdown to McCoy.
Riddle me this: is David Wilson the Nate Allen of running backs, or is Nate Allen the David Wilson of safeties?
At least we can take a little solace in the fact that other teams also blow high draft picks on guys who are terrible at playing football.
I’m trying, but so far that’s not much comfort, sadly.
60% of the time thats almost always accurate….mostly
Talk about a 180 from Andy.
OH shit i missed the pass, i looked up saw shady running thought it was a run.
Oh he did carry it. lol
it was a checkdown pass
Remember when we decided to go to a 3-4 when we clearly have 4-3 players
Clear as day.
This is purely a work in progress. Just enjoy the ride – we should have no expectation of being in contention…
Not all rides are fun.
Remember when our fans weren’t so soft?
Hooray! Someone other than Shady does something.
I was just going to say there are all kinds of stink lines coming out of my tv screen.
More than 3 players being involved… Is this the right game we’re watching?
4 downs. No friggin FG!!
come on vick.
The red zone lets just put Henry is now
Redzone struggles… We did fire AR right?
Where are the TE’s in the redzone
Having tea and scones?
It wouldn’t be an Eagles offensive performance without a terrible red zone series or two thrown in.
Should have ran up the gut. We haven’t been doing much by trying to bounce it outside so far
That Mccoy run was going for 6 if Herremans peels back and stops Hill. Just execution problems.
Man I just had to spray down my tv with lysol.
Too much spittle flying today huh?
No, it’s literally coming out of the stadium cameras into my living room. No one else having that problem?
Not all of us have 4D TV’s
Now you need something for the stench!
Same players means same problems in the redzone…
I think height matters in the redzone, which is a problem that even if these guys were playing better won’t be fixed. We have a short qb and a short wr1. Riley is taller, but not hugely talented, and our TEs are on a redzone hunger strike.
Should be noted that we’re not seeing Riley’s name called often.
Because he SUCKS. He should not be an Eagle at the very least the end of this season.
But he was a stud in the preseason…
Is DeSean Jackson being used as a blocker today?
Vick’s (lack of) accuracy is really holding the eagles back. It’s frustrating to watch.
the Eagles lack of WRs is what’s really holding the Eagles back. You can’t complete passes to glorified blockers.
The WRs are not helping matters, but Avant was open on that last play. Vick flat out missed a TD throw there.
I see your point, but I’m just referring to the times when they’re open. But again, I do see your point.
It hurt on that last play. Avant was open for a TD. Gotta make those throws.
He isn’t a very good QB, what did you expect? Poor accuracy, poor decision making, poor at reading the defense. He has an amazingly strong arm and is still a very athletic guy, but he is just not a very good QB.
Although he doesn’t have great weapons to throw to either.
Damn the Jaguars are a bad beat team, Joeckel just carted off the field. That team is going to win the tank for Teddy sweepsteaks.
Did Nicks just alligator arm that with Allen lurking there?
Of all people to alligator arm it against.
Yeah, he’ll never live that one down lol
Ricky Watters play. Alligator arms
Good defense? wtf?
Ok i’m changing this defenses name to the Steel Curtain
upgraded from silk?
Now you guys are getting too sexy for me, stop
Finding a rhythm.
The defense is showing life!
Bradley Fletcher makes second play of the day. Our corners aren’t so bad, its the safeties that kill the secondary.
Ok we’re in business for another FG.
Lets now make it a point to get shady and ERTZY going
The stop was thanks to Eli and we will b in position to get clown eu in the draft
We should be winning this game, but they stole a safety from us
it would feel good to be up 8 7 right now!
We got lucky!
No we didn’t. They are just bad
Wow, Lady Luck with Eagles today.
Wow, we got away with one there.
I don’t get the game here. What happened?
Our offense should be called rz3
4 downs… fg coming up!
Field goal in 45 seconds!
Shady run three times in a row!!!
That’s how you do it. At least we didn’t get away with one where we got cheated out of safety.
Color me surprised a td
To be fair, the Chiefs took awhile before they really had their game in hand against the Giants.
I like the designed runs from Vick today.
VIck and Shady with the chance of a play action should be able to do it all day.
I don’t. Sure, mixing one or two in over the course of the game is fine, but in the NFL the quarterback should primarily be hurting you with his arm. This looks like Atlanta Mike Vick. There’s no way this approach works against a competent NFL defense.
Passing first sure hasn’t been working the past two weeks.
It would have against San Diego if the defense was not a joke…
True. But they’re not going to do anything other than maybe beat other bad teams with an offense that doesn’t even try to throw the ball.
It reaffirms what I’ve been saying all along. The LACK of talent on offense means you can man up our WR and there is nothing we can do about it but run the QB. Best thing to do when dbs are turned around is run the QB.
lol, I love that we scored a TD, but Mcbride should have easily picked that off. We got a little lucky there haha.
Finally we’re getting some of that creativity that we were promised.
Andy would’ve had Vick fade back 10 yards, so this a nice change.
Vick simply has to be the primary rusher in ~and goal situations. No ifs, ands, or buts, about it. Until the OL does power better.
I don’t know what made me more happy. We scored or the Chiefs D has 30 points for me in fantasy football.
I also have thee Cheifs, shady nd Blackmon(started him today in two leagues)
A few seasons ago DJax would’ve dropped that as the DB broke his concentration. Good effort from him.
Someone mentioned how weird Henery’s first kick was today, it was like a blooper that he didn’t want to go into the end zone. That was weird.
Yeah, he must have missed it or something…he can usually put it out of the endzone. Or at least deep enough to discourage a return.
It’s not fair opposing teams get 22 players on offense
Whoa the giants o thank you
Yea cuz Kendricks didn’t knock it loose. Troll on playa
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Steel Curtain!
Keep talking trash about my D!!!!’
You’re kidding me right? No one even touched him. That’s not a defensive play. That’s an offensive failure. Let’s not pound our chests for no reason
So um…yeah LOLBrandon Jacobs.
What is this weird thing? Running on 3rd and 3? Wow, amazing
I guess Chip knows that Shady can run on the Giants
smart out of bounds
Are they going to have 500 yards rushing today?
They can just throw short all day with space our CB’s are giving them, yet they run! Ha!
Still can’t stop getting hurt without being hit, Another red zone
read option isnt going to work if Vick is gimpy.
Even Vick can’t keep up with the offense!
Vick gets gimpy every game. It just came early this time
There is zero separation on these receivers
McCoy thought too much on that.
It looked to me like once he slipped, there was nothing he could do.
True, i thought maybe he made himself slip trying to juke on a play no one was around.
That field goal tho
Watching a game with you is unbearable….go have a catch at halftime in traffic. Thanks
Vick gets no calls
that was so blatant too.
Bullshit late hit, the guy clearly put his knee into Vicks thigh.
We should be stomping the shit out of the Giants right now. My kingdom for a red zone offense…
That would be great.
Now, dont be greedy now. The defense only allowing 7 points is a small miracle
No question – you take the fg there, make it two possession game.
This Eagles team, for the last 10 years, is the best offensive team in history between the 20s.
Kinda wish Brandon Jacobs had joined the Cowboys, then I could focus all my hate in one place.
Surely you can spread the hate.
It’s just so much less efficient this way, though.
The largest example of twinkle toes ever.
Fletcher 3rd pass breakup today.
Come on Cary!!!!
I hate how poor our pass rush is today. The Giants have been horrendous at pass blocking for Eli and they are starting 2 backups on the interior, but we’ve barely gotten close to the QB. Very disappointing.
Agreed. Very disappointing.
Curry can’t make plays from the bench
Only 7 points is the best part at least.
Today? It’s been absent all year.
Alright Eli, give us a pick six. Please?
Does anyone else running to the bathroom during a commercial look over their shoulder and pretend they are catching a football?
I used to do a random Dawk celebration after coming back into the room after going to the bathroom.
I carry a football around the house and make jukes during commercial. Haha
Do you say “McCoy!” while you do it?
Yup, and my bookshelves look astonished.
My dogs have yet to tackle me.
Yeah cool, you gotta stuff like that
Actually that was in reply to you guys.
any snaps for curry yet?
I saw 75 out there a couple times. Don’t have a count for you though.
In fact he’s in there now at DT.
Eli is focused on Williams right now
good game by fletcher
as bad as our D has been our starting cbs are such an upgrade from last year…
Fletcher is playing his ASS off.
Inserting Nnamdi or DRC into that sentence would make it invalid.
Their asses too flat?
Nnamdi has no ass left. DRC is a complete ass.
Nice coverage and pb by Fletcher
FLETCHER! 4th pass breakup today!
But fletch is just the rams 4th best CB…..lol
Foles gold time
Ooooo that smell…. Cant you smell that smell?
4 straight stops! Plus they put pressure on the QB this time! Ever since I said Steel Curtain.
and you guys were talking shit about the pass rush.
Curry had 2 pass rushes there, first time he bulled the OL back but got stopped about 2 yards short of QB, 2nd one was screen pass so not much to learn from it.
D does seem to be playing a bit better. Gmen look incompetent right now as well…
Pass rush is actually getting close except for when Eli throws quick slants…..the sacks will come in the 2nd half if we can score some points and make them play from behind….Giants get the ball at the half, that drive will be crucial for this defense
Run the ball. Kill the clock. Get to half time. Nothing stupid, please
St. Nick time!!! Whooooooo!!!!
Eli is playing DL right now for the giants
We gotta hold on here and let Shady take this game over.
Tough break for Vick, random soft tissue injury.
They had good pressure on Eli last time, gotta keep that up
Ughhh see that duck by Foles?
its magnified by the comparision to vicks balls
I think Foles could have run that ball out to Avant faster than he threw it.
Vick still is faster than Foles.
Nice, drop and throw.
I think we should kneel it. This is risky trying to get this down the field.
Or I could be wrong, whatever.
I like how people want Foles to come in, and then immediately start complaining about his play.
who’s complaining, does he have an incomplete pass? He seems to be moving the ball admirably.
Don’t confuse my comments for complaining. I’m just full of sarcasm.
I guess I took that wrong, haha sorry.
Looking better as he goes along.
It is really weird having all 3 TOs left with under a minute to go. Take me all season to get used it.
interesting clock management…
k they’re close to a FG
folesy to ERTZY for the Td…I can smell it
St Nick leads us own field from our own ENDZONE!!!! Jolly ol st. nick….BAWLIN!!!
That was. Absolutely beautiful touch on that ball, put it exactly where it needed to be.
Nice end to the half.
AH! I like yards!
bad week to drop henery from my FF team
i kept him! Lol
I know a lot of people don’t like Foles, but I’m totally comfortable with him in there.
Really nice to know that we have such a competent back up when our starter is prone to not playing 16 full games.
Foles has nice touch, and pocket awareness. Just a mediocre arm…
Very nice drive with their back against the wall
agreed about the arm – his strength is he knows how to put touch on it to work with his limitation in pure strength. He can float it to where it needs to be.
Yeah if only his arm was a little stronger… What could be.
Surely this is something time in the weight room can fix? Weight lifters manage to increase their arm power, after all.
It’s my understanding explosive power, applying strength instantaneously, is not easy to increase. In jumping or throwing, for example.
I think its possible, there are plenty of QB’s who have increased their arm strength over the course of their careers. A perfect example is Tom Brady. He didn’t have the cannon he has now when he came into the league.
Indeed. Every time I watch him play I think “it’s a shame this guy doesn’t have a stronger arm, because he has the other tools”. Of course, there’s a reason he wasn’t a first round pick.
That was a decent drive by Foles.
Ya think? Lol
Looked like a Kelly offense…
Definitely not. Very Shurmur, Browns era.
For once I’m going to agree with you 100%. That was classic west coast. The problem with Foles is that I don’t think he can consistently hit the longer throws that will be necessary to keep defenses honest over the long term.
not bad against the giants second stringers….really though Vick was doing some amazing things
Look, I loved watching Foles there, but let’s not give too much credit to a QB completing a lot of underneath routes in soft coverage.
nobody is calling for him to be the starter I don’t think. But it’s nice to know that our backup isn’t a bum.
They will come out after the game.
Also refreshing to see a backup come in at short notice and play reasonably well. Rarely happened with Andy’s teams.
Backups playing well after they’ve just been inserted into the game is more a rarity than not. So Foles deserves the credit for having something out there. Saw the Tuel game…
True. But I was pretty sure he wasn’t a bum.
Personally I’m hoping Foles looks great so I can yell out “We found our Tannenhill!”
Who would you rather have protect a lead in the second half? Vick or FOles? Great point by jimmy Johnson
Foles if our OL can hold a block, Vick otherwise. Mostly our OL can’t, so..
FOles can get the ball out quick
This assumes there is somebody open to get the ball to, quick
I would rather have Vick. Foles doesn’t offer advantages in ball security. Wonder if we’ll see lots and lots of runs in the second half. It all depends on how the Eagles defense plays.
That’s right, Foles. Just Weeden your way through this game. The Giants SUCK… even this defense can seem to stop them somewhat.
Turns out we don’t need to stop them when they stop themselves.
“The electrifying Terrelle Pryor leads the Raiders into San Diego…”
Give the NFL Network this, they aren’t afraid to be shameless in polishing a turd.
This isn’t as big of a stretch as I’ve seen, Pryor has been surprisingly interesting. Now “the electrifying Blaine Gabbert”, that would be a bit of a stretch.
