Posted: October 6th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 414 Comments »

No surprise inactives.

Go Eagles…


  • DamonL86

    Drops again

    • TommyLawlor

      DJax has to make that catch.

    • BlindChow

      Finding a way to lose…

  • GEagle

    Good play by fletch

    • Iskar36

      How was it a good play? He got burned badly and the WR dropped it

      • GEagle

        Watch the replay…he forced that incompletion

      • Corry

        He got his hand in there to knock it away.

  • Corry

    Good play by #24.

  • Corry

    *sigh*

    • scratcherk

      agreed

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Nate Allen has one job with single high safety and he can’t even so that. He sucks

  • Iskar36

    Not sure what Fletcher was celebrating on that last one. Was a drop by the WR. Not a play by him

    • SteveH

      He got his hand in and knocked it out, per replay.

    • GEagle

      No…he made that play

  • GEagle

    Nate Allen is a joke

    • Corry

      The whole defense is a joke.

  • TommyLawlor

    Oh boy…

    • SteveH

      The Eli strategy – wait a few beats and toss it up deep for grabs. Nate Allen unable to handle deep coverage responsibility.

  • DamonL86

    Defense is brutal to watch

  • Corry

    This is going to be a long afternoon.

  • RichF

    so, this could be a long game

  • scratcherk

    I’ll give 3 first round picks for Jarius Byrd right now

    • SteveH

      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.

      • scratcherk

        sir, you’re a scholar and a gentleman

    • xeynon

      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.

      • GEagle

        You would be surprised how much better Cary and Fletch would look with a playmaking safety

        • Weapon Y

          Fletcher looks really bad. CB needs to be priority #1 in the draft. I’m on the Bradley Roby bandwagon.

          • ACViking

            every position is a priority

          • SteveH

            How does Fletch look bad? He’s the only DB who’s made a play so far today!

        • xeynon

          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.

          • GEagle

            Apparently you aren’t watching this game lol

  • Flyineagle45

    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

    • SteveH

      why the hate for fletch, he broke up the first one that Allen let get over his head.

    • GEagle

      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?

  • BlindChow

    Same old Eagles.

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    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…

  • Flyineagle45

    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

  • Weapon Y

    This defense….

  • xeynon

    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.

  • SteveH

    I love how the broadcast talks about how we were so aware of getting beat deep, and then we promptly get beaten deep.

    • RichF

      Just wait until they mention how vick is protecting the ball better, and didn’t turn it over last week.

  • GEagle

    RUN the fucking ball!!!!!!nRun the he fuckin BALL!!! Run the fuckin Ball!,

  • DamonL86

    You have to make that throw

  • Flyineagle45

    How is it possible to go hoarse from yelling in the first 3 minutes of a gam

  • xeynon

    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.

    • RichF

      pretty good rb though

      • xeynon

        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.

  • GEagle

    Vick!!!!

  • xeynon

    Does Chippah have so little faith in this passing game that he’s going to run it on 3rd and 9?

  • Corry

    Wait…The giants accepted that penalty? That’ll teach me to walk away from the game.

    • BlindChow

      It’s clear the Giants have nothing to be afraid of.

      Edit: Nevermind!

      • xeynon

        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.

  • Flyineagle45

    Our offense needs to score 50 pts a game to have a shot a winning

  • shah8

    bleep me, Vick! Why didn’t Coughlin take the stupid punt!?

    • SteveH

      Dunno, that was mysterious lol.

    • ACViking

      Eagles ran on 3rd and 9.

      Kelly was going to go for that 4th down and 3 or so.

  • shah8

    OL is having a terrible game.

    • SteveH

      Yeah, and Giants DL has been terrible so far this year. Puzzling.

      • Anders

        The DTs have been good.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Good thing they are going up against a weak underachieving DL.

  • DamonL86

    Wow that is terrible

  • SteveH

    Oh god now the defense has to come back on the field… I can’t look…

  • TommyLawlor

    The defense needs to show something here. Last drive was way too easy for the Giants.

    • DamonL86

      They have showed nothing so far

  • Flyineagle45

    They might as well not even line up

  • Iskar36

    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.

    • SteveH

      Seems like he was losing his balance and that’s why he stepped out.

      • Iskar36

        Could be. I didn’t see a replay so I could not tell. It just seemed he had the space.

    • RichF

      looked like his inertia wouldn’t let him stay in.

    • shah8

      EJ Manuel thought so, too.

      In the end, you have to expect your running game to be able to get that last yard.

  • scratcherk

    weird kick off

  • Flyineagle45

    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

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Is there any reason Eli shouldn’t air it out deep on virtually every play?

    • RichF

      good sportsmanship?

  • GEagle

    They better not trot Nate Allen out there again. Only Nate could make me so desperate to see Kurt or Colt

  • Flyineagle45

    Hopefully the jets get rid of sexy rexy then maybe we can get him

    • RichF

      to play safety?

  • Weapon Y

    Get Buddy Nix on the phone right now. I want Jairus Byrd playing for us next week. I’ve had enough of Nate Allen.

  • Flyineagle45

    Doesn’t matter we still have a bad dc

    • GEagle

      Stop it

  • scratcherk

    can we just onside kick every time

  • Corry

    Don’t worry guys, Bill Davis will watch the game film 10 times and see fundamental improvement.

  • Flyineagle45

    Ha might as well

  • Flyineagle45

    Could this possibly be worst defense in nfl history at least they will get noticed for something

    • Teehee

      I thought it couldn’t get any worse from last year. The Eagles always prove me wrong.

      • SteveH

        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…

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I miss the wide-9.

  • Flyineagle45

    I miss jj our defense sadly died with him rip

  • scratcherk

    turf monster — our defensive MVP

  • SeanofDead

    Well, if Nate can’t cover…. Might as well rush him every time

    • Corry

      Knowing Davis, he’s likely our new OLB. Boykin lost the job apparently.

  • Anders

    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.

  • SteveH

    loooool Eli Manning does such funny things.

  • Flyineagle45

    Vick is not the issue at all

    • xeynon

      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.

    • BC1968

      No F defense will get you a Super Bowl. Not even for Peyton Manning.

  • SteveH

    0 passing yards for Eagles, gross.

  • scratcherk

    shallow cross for first down here

  • BC1968

    Ya the giants offense is playing defense for the eagles

    • BlindChow

      I credit Nate Allen for that one!

  • Teehee

    Our defense plays better BEFORE the play.

  • Flyineagle45

    If we could stop a team one time just one time we wouldn’t have to play so desperate

  • RichF

    that’s an awfully sporting handicap they just gave our d

  • Corry

    With the way things are going, Eli is making the best plays for our defense.

  • DamonL86

    3rd and 25 watch the crossing route

  • OregonDucker

    Here comes a TD throw.

    • Teehee

      Nah, Eli will just scramble through the missed tackles for a first down

  • xeynon

    The Giants’ offense is obviously trying to challenge itself by making the yardage-to-go longer.

  • RichF

    if you’re coughlin you go for it here right?

  • SeanofDead

    Thank u for not celebrating cary

  • scratcherk

    what is the opposing team doing here?

    • scratcherk

      that guy kicked the ball with his foot… strange tactic, cant say i’ve seen it

  • SteveH

    Thank you Cary Williams, a shallow cross didn’t go for 30 yards!

  • Flyineagle45

    Lets get the local high school team on d see what they can do

    • Teehee

      I’ll fly over from Utah and play safety.

  • OregonDucker

    Ok, now we got ‘em overconfident. Time to…..

    • Teehee

      Buttfumble!

  • shah8

    Thank you giants for being so generous to our defense!

  • Flyineagle45

    Being the worst team in the league sucks

    • Corry

      Nah, the Jags are still in the league. Take comfort in that.

    • Teehee

      Get back on the Jacksonville boards, kid.

  • ACViking

    Manning looked a little gun-shy on the missed wheel route to Wilson

    • BlindChow

      He was probably expecting to see Matthews.

  • SteveH

    Celek making contributions! Getting fouled!

    • GEagle

      And teaching Ertz how To drop balls

  • DamonL86

    Do we have a completion yet?

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Nope

    • Corry

      No.

    • Teehee

      Vick 0/4

  • DamonL86

    Guess he didnt see JPP coming right at him

  • Flyineagle45

    This is pathetic

  • GEagle

    How did peters leave JPP unblocked?

    • ACViking

      hot receiver was McCoy.

      Vick tried to throw OVER Pierre-Paul. Not around him.

  • Teehee

    Man, trying to follow this on the NFL Game center sucks. Just said Vick passed incomplete to himself.

    • TommyLawlor

      Batted ball by JPP

      • Teehee

        That makes more sense.

  • Flyineagle45

    Jpp will have a career day today

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Offense is just regressing. If McCoy goes down we’ll never see another win.

  • SteveH

    Nice punt at least.

  • BC1968

    He regained his momentum

    • RichF

      right? He made another drive – should’ve been points.

      • BC1968

        Yep, maybe a challenge

        • scratcherk

          dont think you can challenge forward progress.

          • BC1968

            Good point, never seen done, but maybe cause it never happened?

  • Teehee

    If any player is ever having a down year, playing the Eagles sure can fix it.

  • GEagle

    We didn’t yet the safety???

  • Corry

    Oh that’s bullshit! That’s a safety!

    • TommyLawlor

      Horrible call.

  • BC1968

    He actually started forward progress again in the end zone that should be a safety

  • xeynon

    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?

    • SteveH

      I think Kelly is trying to get yards anyway he can…

  • SeanofDead

    We can’t challenge the spot?

  • Flyineagle45

    It’s a waste of a challenge because they would put it on the one

    • BC1968

      The defensive player let him go and he started again though

  • scratcherk

    Did that look like it was going to be a flea-flicker to anyone else?

  • xeynon

    To paraphrase Bill Parcells, this game is what the records say it is – an ugly contest between two bottom dwellers.

  • GEagle

    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

    • BlindChow

      Doesn’t look at all like Oregon. Looks like Shurmur’s Browns. I’m really disappointed in Kelly.

  • Flyineagle45

    We are the worst team in the league don’t expect to much

    • SteveH

      Cmon man… worse than jacksonville? Really?

      • Teehee

        At least we have a quarterback who is competent… Sometimes.

        • BC1968

          Actually there’s the QB and Shady. Then I get lost on giving names.

  • Flyineagle45

    Even if we got a safety or defense won’t keep us in the game

    • TommyLawlor

      The D just had a good series. Maybe they’ll wake up and get going.

    • GEagle

      Why not shut off the TV and call it a day? SMH at soft eagles fans waiving the white flag in the 2nd quarter

  • scratcherk

    CRAMP!!!!

    • RichF

      Eagles 1st down – someone drop!

      • Insomniac

        Vick completed his first pass! PANIC!

        • BlindChow

          FINALLY a checkdown to McCoy.

  • xeynon

    Riddle me this: is David Wilson the Nate Allen of running backs, or is Nate Allen the David Wilson of safeties?

    • Crus57

      Yes.

      • xeynon

        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.

        • Crus57

          I’m trying, but so far that’s not much comfort, sadly.

    • SeanofDead

      60% of the time thats almost always accurate….mostly

  • BC1968

    Talk about a 180 from Andy.

  • BC1968

    OH shit i missed the pass, i looked up saw shady running thought it was a run.

    • BC1968

      Oh he did carry it. lol

      • Insomniac

        it was a checkdown pass

        • BC1968

          oh ok

  • Flyineagle45

    Remember when we decided to go to a 3-4 when we clearly have 4-3 players

    • Teehee

      Clear as day.

    • RichF

      This is purely a work in progress. Just enjoy the ride – we should have no expectation of being in contention…

      • BlindChow

        Not all rides are fun.

    • GEagle

      Remember when our fans weren’t so soft?

  • BC1968

    Woo hoo

  • SteveH

    Urrrtttzzzzz

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Hooray! Someone other than Shady does something.

  • GEagle

    ERTZY!!!!!

  • BC1968

    I was just going to say there are all kinds of stink lines coming out of my tv screen.

  • SteveH

    ERTZZLAKKERRZZZZZ

  • Teehee

    More than 3 players being involved… Is this the right game we’re watching?

  • BC1968

    4 downs. No friggin FG!!

  • scratcherk

    come on vick.

  • Flyineagle45

    The red zone lets just put Henry is now

  • Iskar36

    Redzone struggles… We did fire AR right?

  • DamonL86

    Where are the TE’s in the redzone

    • OregonDucker

      Having tea and scones?

  • xeynon

    It wouldn’t be an Eagles offensive performance without a terrible red zone series or two thrown in.

  • Insomniac

    Should have ran up the gut. We haven’t been doing much by trying to bounce it outside so far

    • SteveH

      That Mccoy run was going for 6 if Herremans peels back and stops Hill. Just execution problems.

  • BC1968

    Man I just had to spray down my tv with lysol.

    • SteveH

      Too much spittle flying today huh?

      • BC1968

        No, it’s literally coming out of the stadium cameras into my living room. No one else having that problem?

        • Teehee

          Not all of us have 4D TV’s

    • OregonDucker

      Now you need something for the stench!

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Same players means same problems in the redzone…

    • RichF

      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.

      • shah8

        Should be noted that we’re not seeing Riley’s name called often.

        • Dr. Claw

          Because he SUCKS. He should not be an Eagle at the very least the end of this season.

        • ceteris_paribus1776

          But he was a stud in the preseason…

  • BC1968

    Is DeSean Jackson being used as a blocker today?

  • Spooonius

    Vick’s (lack of) accuracy is really holding the eagles back. It’s frustrating to watch.

    • Dr. Claw

      the Eagles lack of WRs is what’s really holding the Eagles back. You can’t complete passes to glorified blockers.

      • Iskar36

        The WRs are not helping matters, but Avant was open on that last play. Vick flat out missed a TD throw there.

      • Spooonius

        I see your point, but I’m just referring to the times when they’re open. But again, I do see your point.

    • TommyLawlor

      It hurt on that last play. Avant was open for a TD. Gotta make those throws.

    • Patrick

      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.

  • SteveH

    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.

  • Corry

    Did Nicks just alligator arm that with Allen lurking there?

    • BC1968

      Of all people to alligator arm it against.

      • Corry

        Yeah, he’ll never live that one down lol

  • BC1968

    Ricky Watters play. Alligator arms

  • scratcherk

    Good defense? wtf?

  • BC1968

    Ok i’m changing this defenses name to the Steel Curtain

    • RichF

      upgraded from silk?

      • Corry

        Lace.

        • scratcherk

          Open

          • Crus57

            Rubber

          • Teehee

            Paper.

          • SteveH

            Feather?

        • BC1968

          Now you guys are getting too sexy for me, stop

  • RichF

    Finding a rhythm.

  • Teehee

    The defense is showing life!

  • SteveH

    Bradley Fletcher makes second play of the day. Our corners aren’t so bad, its the safeties that kill the secondary.

  • BC1968

    Ok we’re in business for another FG.

  • GEagle

    Lets now make it a point to get shady and ERTZY going

  • Flyineagle45

    The stop was thanks to Eli and we will b in position to get clown eu in the draft

  • GEagle

    We should be winning this game, but they stole a safety from us

    • RichF

      it would feel good to be up 8 7 right now!

  • BC1968

    We got lucky!

    • GEagle

      No we didn’t. They are just bad

  • Corry

    Wow, Lady Luck with Eagles today.

  • SteveH

    Wow, we got away with one there.

    • Teehee

      I don’t get the game here. What happened?

  • Flyineagle45

    Our offense should be called rz3

  • RichF

    4 downs… fg coming up!

  • Insomniac

    Field goal in 45 seconds!

  • scratcherk

    TD YAY

  • GEagle

    Shady run three times in a row!!!

  • BC1968

    That’s how you do it. At least we didn’t get away with one where we got cheated out of safety.

  • Flyineagle45

    Color me surprised a td

    • BC1968

      LOL

  • BC1968

    To be fair, the Chiefs took awhile before they really had their game in hand against the Giants.

  • Spooonius

    I like the designed runs from Vick today.

    • BC1968

      VIck and Shady with the chance of a play action should be able to do it all day.

    • xeynon

      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.

      • BlindChow

        Passing first sure hasn’t been working the past two weeks.

        • Dr. Claw

          It would have against San Diego if the defense was not a joke…

        • xeynon

          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.

        • ceteris_paribus1776

          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.

  • SteveH

    lol, I love that we scored a TD, but Mcbride should have easily picked that off. We got a little lucky there haha.

  • livingonapear

    Finally we’re getting some of that creativity that we were promised.

  • BC1968

    Andy would’ve had Vick fade back 10 yards, so this a nice change.

  • shah8

    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.

  • Insomniac

    I don’t know what made me more happy. We scored or the Chiefs D has 30 points for me in fantasy football.

    • GEagle

      I also have thee Cheifs, shady nd Blackmon(started him today in two leagues)

  • Crus57

    A few seasons ago DJax would’ve dropped that as the DB broke his concentration. Good effort from him.

  • BC1968

    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.

    • Corry

      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.

  • Flyineagle45

    It’s not fair opposing teams get 22 players on offense

  • Flyineagle45

    Whoa the giants o thank you

    • GEagle

      Yea cuz Kendricks didn’t knock it loose. Troll on playa

  • BC1968

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Steel Curtain!

  • GEagle

    Keep talking trash about my D!!!!’

    • Iskar36

      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

  • Insomniac

    Butterfingerrrrrrrrrrrs

    • BC1968

      Trash

  • Corry

    So um…yeah LOLBrandon Jacobs.

  • SteveH

    Jacobs, lol.

  • BC1968

    What is this weird thing? Running on 3rd and 3? Wow, amazing

    • Teehee

      I guess Chip knows that Shady can run on the Giants

  • RichF

    smart out of bounds

  • BC1968

    Are they going to have 500 yards rushing today?

  • Spooonius

    Uh oh

  • BlindChow

    They can just throw short all day with space our CB’s are giving them, yet they run! Ha!

  • SteveH

    Ah shit.

  • BC1968

    Still can’t stop getting hurt without being hit, Another red zone

  • Flyineagle45

    Great

  • SteveH

    read option isnt going to work if Vick is gimpy.

    • GEagle

      Cramp…

      • BC1968

        Bluffing

      • Teehee

        Even Vick can’t keep up with the offense!

    • Teehee

      Vick gets gimpy every game. It just came early this time

  • scratcherk

    There is zero separation on these receivers

  • BC1968

    McCoy thought too much on that.

    • Spooonius

      It looked to me like once he slipped, there was nothing he could do.

      • BC1968

        True, i thought maybe he made himself slip trying to juke on a play no one was around.

  • Flyineagle45

    That field goal tho

    • GEagle

      Watching a game with you is unbearable….go have a catch at halftime in traffic. Thanks

  • GEagle

    Vick gets no calls

    • Insomniac

      that was so blatant too.

  • SteveH

    Bullshit late hit, the guy clearly put his knee into Vicks thigh.

  • Corry

    We should be stomping the shit out of the Giants right now. My kingdom for a red zone offense…

    • Teehee

      That would be great.

    • scratcherk

      Now, dont be greedy now. The defense only allowing 7 points is a small miracle

  • RichF

    No question – you take the fg there, make it two possession game.

  • BC1968

    This Eagles team, for the last 10 years, is the best offensive team in history between the 20s.

  • Crus57

    Kinda wish Brandon Jacobs had joined the Cowboys, then I could focus all my hate in one place.

    • BC1968

      Surely you can spread the hate.

      • Crus57

        It’s just so much less efficient this way, though.

    • Teehee

      The largest example of twinkle toes ever.

  • SteveH

    Fletcher 3rd pass breakup today.

  • GEagle

    Come on Cary!!!!

  • SteveH

    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.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Agreed. Very disappointing.

    • GEagle

      Curry can’t make plays from the bench

    • BC1968

      Only 7 points is the best part at least.

    • ceteris_paribus1776

      Today? It’s been absent all year.

  • Teehee

    Alright Eli, give us a pick six. Please?

  • BC1968

    Does anyone else running to the bathroom during a commercial look over their shoulder and pretend they are catching a football?

    • SteveH

      I used to do a random Dawk celebration after coming back into the room after going to the bathroom.

    • Teehee

      I carry a football around the house and make jukes during commercial. Haha

      • BlindChow

        Do you say “McCoy!” while you do it?

        • Teehee

          Yup, and my bookshelves look astonished.

      • Corry

        My dogs have yet to tackle me.

    • BC1968

      Yeah cool, you gotta stuff like that

      • BC1968

        Actually that was in reply to you guys.

  • scratcherk

    any snaps for curry yet?

    • Corry

      I saw 75 out there a couple times. Don’t have a count for you though.

    • Corry

      In fact he’s in there now at DT.

  • SeanofDead

    Eli is focused on Williams right now

  • scratcherk

    good game by fletcher

    • RichF

      as bad as our D has been our starting cbs are such an upgrade from last year…

  • livingonapear

    Fletcher is playing his ASS off.

    • Teehee

      Inserting Nnamdi or DRC into that sentence would make it invalid.

      • BC1968

        Their asses too flat?

        • Crus57

          Nnamdi has no ass left. DRC is a complete ass.

          • Teehee

            This.

  • SeanofDead

    Nice coverage and pb by Fletcher

  • SteveH

    FLETCHER! 4th pass breakup today!

  • GEagle

    But fletch is just the rams 4th best CB…..lol

  • scratcherk

    Foles gold time

    • SeanofDead

      Ooooo that smell…. Cant you smell that smell?

  • BC1968

    4 straight stops! Plus they put pressure on the QB this time! Ever since I said Steel Curtain.

  • Insomniac

    and you guys were talking shit about the pass rush.

  • SteveH

    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.

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    D does seem to be playing a bit better. Gmen look incompetent right now as well…

  • GEagle

    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

  • scratcherk

    Foles gold!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Run the ball. Kill the clock. Get to half time. Nothing stupid, please

  • BC1968

    QB controversy

  • GEagle

    St. Nick time!!! Whooooooo!!!!

  • scratcherk

    Eli is playing DL right now for the giants

  • BC1968

    We gotta hold on here and let Shady take this game over.

  • SteveH

    Tough break for Vick, random soft tissue injury.

  • BC1968

    They had good pressure on Eli last time, gotta keep that up

  • BC1968

    Ughhh see that duck by Foles?

    • scratcherk

      its magnified by the comparision to vicks balls

  • Corry

    I think Foles could have run that ball out to Avant faster than he threw it.

  • BC1968

    Vick still is faster than Foles.

  • BC1968

    Nice, drop and throw.

  • SteveH

    I think we should kneel it. This is risky trying to get this down the field.

    • SteveH

      Or I could be wrong, whatever.

  • Teehee

    I like how people want Foles to come in, and then immediately start complaining about his play.

    • RichF

      who’s complaining, does he have an incomplete pass? He seems to be moving the ball admirably.

    • Corry

      Don’t confuse my comments for complaining. I’m just full of sarcasm.

      • Teehee

        I guess I took that wrong, haha sorry.

  • BC1968

    Looking better as he goes along.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    It is really weird having all 3 TOs left with under a minute to go. Take me all season to get used it.

  • scratcherk

    interesting clock management…

  • BC1968

    k they’re close to a FG

  • SteveH

    Thanks JPP!!

  • GEagle

    folesy to ERTZY for the Td…I can smell it

  • SteveH

    Sweet throw!!

    • GEagle

      St Nick leads us own field from our own ENDZONE!!!! Jolly ol st. nick….BAWLIN!!!

    • xeynon

      That was. Absolutely beautiful touch on that ball, put it exactly where it needed to be.

  • BC1968

    Nice end to the half.

  • Teehee

    AH! I like yards!

  • scratcherk

    bad week to drop henery from my FF team

    • GEagle

      i kept him! Lol

  • Corry

    I know a lot of people don’t like Foles, but I’m totally comfortable with him in there.

  • Teehee

    Nice drive.

  • RichF

    Really nice to know that we have such a competent back up when our starter is prone to not playing 16 full games.

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Foles has nice touch, and pocket awareness. Just a mediocre arm…

    Very nice drive with their back against the wall

    • RichF

      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.

    • SteveH

      Yeah if only his arm was a little stronger… What could be.

      • Crus57

        Surely this is something time in the weight room can fix? Weight lifters manage to increase their arm power, after all.

        • Michael Winter Cho

          It’s my understanding explosive power, applying strength instantaneously, is not easy to increase. In jumping or throwing, for example.

        • SteveH

          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.

    • xeynon

      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.

  • shah8

    That was a decent drive by Foles.

    • GEagle

      Ya think? Lol

    • BlindChow

      Looked like a Kelly offense…

      • shah8

        Definitely not. Very Shurmur, Browns era.

        • xeynon

          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.

    • jshort

      not bad against the giants second stringers….really though Vick was doing some amazing things

  • livingonapear

    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.

    • jshort

      ok

    • RichF

      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.

      • jshort

        well put

      • Insomniac

        They will come out after the game.

      • Crus57

        Also refreshing to see a backup come in at short notice and play reasonably well. Rarely happened with Andy’s teams.

        • shah8

          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…

      • livingonapear

        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!”

    • GEagle

      Who would you rather have protect a lead in the second half? Vick or FOles? Great point by jimmy Johnson

      • Crus57

        Foles if our OL can hold a block, Vick otherwise. Mostly our OL can’t, so..

        • GEagle

          FOles can get the ball out quick

          • Crus57

            This assumes there is somebody open to get the ball to, quick ;)

          • shah8

            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.

  • Dr. Claw

    That’s right, Foles. Just Weeden your way through this game. The Giants SUCK… even this defense can seem to stop them somewhat.

    • Crus57

      Turns out we don’t need to stop them when they stop themselves.

  • xeynon

    “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.

    • SteveH

      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.
