PHI 19, NYG 7 – 2nd Half

Posted: October 6th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 452 Comments »

Slow start, but then things really picked up. Big question is Vick’s status. He ran the ball really well in the first half. Helped to jump-start the offense. Foles finished the half.

The Giants are really banged up. David Wilson is out for the game.

The Eagles D got better. Fingers crossed on that staying true.

    Great stop D!

  7. 7 BlindChow said at 2:51 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Long runs for everybody!

  8. 8 DamonL86 said at 2:50 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Nice start by D

  9. 9 BC1968 said at 2:51 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    When Manning gets skittish things start to fall apart for the Giants. Let’s hope this keeps up.

  10. 10 BlindChow said at 2:51 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I hope we get to see his unhappy face a lot more this game.

  11. 11 GEagle said at 2:52 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    The Mr Ed with Down Syndome face? Yes please

  12. 12 Corry said at 2:52 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Eli Face is the best.

  13. 13 livingonapear said at 2:51 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Yeah, do some flips NOW you little bitch

  14. 14 BC1968 said at 2:51 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Yes, I love the revenge cheer, thumbs up for you.

  15. 15 BC1968 said at 2:53 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Riley Cooper covered? What a surprise!

  16. 16 ACViking said at 2:53 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    The Giants are a terrible team.

    What’s concerning is the Eagles collected FG after FG after FG (other than the 4th one).

    A team as bad a the NYG should be scorched for TDs.

    Also, why wasn’t Kelly calling the Vick-running plays against Denver?

  17. 17 Michael Winter Cho said at 2:53 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Is Plaxico Burress still playing?

  18. 18 BC1968 said at 2:53 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    THe Vick running fear is gone.

  19. 19 GEagle said at 2:54 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Bad play calling by Chip..bad hands by Djax

  20. 20 Spooonius said at 2:55 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Why bad play calling?

  21. 21 GEagle said at 2:56 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Cuz shady didn’t run on first and second down

  22. 22 BC1968 said at 2:56 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    You’re right, can’t have it both ways.

  23. 23 Iskar36 said at 2:54 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Gotta hold on to that DJax

  24. 24 James Adair said at 10:40 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    That was pass interference though it was a bang bang play can’t blame the refs or DJax for that one.

  25. 25 BC1968 said at 2:54 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Very good patience.

  26. 26 GEagle said at 2:54 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Folesy baby!!!

  27. 27 xeynon said at 2:55 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Want to see Foles get that ball snapped right away so the Giants can’t challenge.

  28. 28 ACViking said at 2:55 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Love DeSean.

    A bigger, stronger receiver makes that catch.

  29. 29 BC1968 said at 2:55 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Is he blaming the Eagles offense for moving too fast? That timeout is on him.

  30. 30 BlindChow said at 2:55 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Did it look like the defense linemen called the timeout?

  31. 31 RichF said at 2:56 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    yes. It was a to and THEN a challenge. So either way they burned a to. If they lose the challenge, they’re down 2 time outs

  32. 32 Spooonius said at 2:56 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I like that they forced the giants to call aTO. Hopefully they lose 2

  33. 33 Insomniac said at 2:56 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I hope Coughlin loses so I can see his face blows up like a nuke.

  34. 34 BC1968 said at 2:57 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    It explodes either way. Hot, cold, mild, win. loss. LOL

  35. 35 SteveH said at 2:56 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Shame Djax couldn’t hold onto that earlier one.

  36. 36 BlindChow said at 2:57 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    The defender was pulling down on one of his arms. It wasn’t a gimme, at least.

  37. 37 SteveH said at 2:57 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Yeah, was a tough one but I have a feeling we’ll lose this challenge.

  38. 38 Corry said at 2:57 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Damn, he dropped it at the end.

  39. 39 TommyLawlor said at 2:58 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Yep.

  40. 40 Corry said at 2:58 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    WOW! totally surprised!

  41. 41 xeynon said at 2:57 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    So Coughlin calls a time out, and then challenges a play he might very well lose which would cost him a second time out in the second half of a game he’s trailing… has he been taking offseason classes at the Andy Reid school of clock management?

  42. 42 BlindChow said at 2:58 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    LOL! Making up for the safety!

  43. 43 RichF said at 2:59 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    cool officials. We’re even now. Though you should still spot us a point.

  44. 44 scratcherk said at 2:59 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I love it when BS goes our way. It feels soooooo good.

  45. 45 SteveH said at 2:59 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Whoa! Can’t believe that!

  46. 46 Insomniac said at 2:59 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    LOL

  47. 47 Spooonius said at 2:59 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    WHAAAAAT!!!!!!!! Woo Hooo!!

  48. 48 GEagle said at 2:59 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Payback for that safety..karma is a bitch ain’t it COUGHLIN? Burn baby burn!!!

  49. 49 ACViking said at 2:59 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    LeSean McCoy held up the ball like a trophy and then lost control because of it.

    Just tuck the ball against your body.

  50. 50 Crus57 said at 3:00 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Looked to me more like he had his hands up to keep his balance while he kept his feet in bounds.

  51. 51 ACViking said at 3:03 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    maybe . . . maybe so

  52. 52 BC1968 said at 3:00 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Ok Foles.

  53. 53 BlindChow said at 3:00 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Hey, a man-coverage-beating bunch set!

  54. 54 GEagle said at 3:00 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Celek caught a ball

  55. 55 Iskar36 said at 3:00 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    #yayreplacementrefs… Oh wait…

  56. 56 Corry said at 3:01 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    C’mon Kelce. You gotta play better than that.

  57. 57 BC1968 said at 3:01 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Fat bust Patterson makes a play.

  58. 58 SteveH said at 3:01 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Patterson was a grinder for us, he gave us good years.

  59. 59 BC1968 said at 3:01 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    He was supposed to be better, bust.

  60. 60 SteveH said at 3:02 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Ok.

  61. 61 BC1968 said at 3:03 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Ok, first round. He’s a bust.

  62. 62 Insomniac said at 3:03 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    You’re getting Bunkley and Patterson mixed up.

  63. 63 BC1968 said at 3:04 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    First rounder has to be bettter, that’s a lot of guys you’re passing for him.

  64. 64 Corry said at 3:01 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Kelce got jacked twice on that drive. Just shoved straight back.

  65. 65 BlindChow said at 3:02 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Eagles players always play better after getting cut.

  66. 66 BC1968 said at 3:03 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    For sure, First round bust for us.

  67. 67 DamonL86 said at 3:01 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Blocking terrible on runs

  68. 68 BC1968 said at 3:01 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Time to crush Eli.

  69. 69 ACViking said at 3:02 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    If the effectiveness of Kelly’s offense depends so much on Vick running the ball, then this is a long-term structural problem in Philadelphia.

    How many Michael Vicks will the Eagles be acquiring to play QB over the next 3-4 years?

  70. 70 scratcherk said at 3:03 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Maybe but more likely, the game plan for today was based on Vick playing and now we’re adjusting to Foles.

  71. 71 ACViking said at 3:04 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Hope so.

  72. 72 shah8 said at 3:04 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Much of that is because Foles is just a zero. It does, however, require an excellent ability to run.

    Also need to remember, the Shady Phenomenon has a great deal to do with Vick commanding rush discipline on the part of the DL and LBs, and his arm pushes back the S.

  73. 73 ACViking said at 3:05 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    You’re making my point.

  74. 74 xeynon said at 3:06 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    If I’m Howie Roseman I’m scouting Johnny Manziel, Tajh Boyd, etc. very heavily right now. This offense needs a guy who throws better than Vick and runs better than Foles.

  75. 75 jshort said at 3:03 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Foles needs to pull ball and run even for five

  76. 76 Tom said at 3:03 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Whats funny is a player on the giants called that timeout. Didn’t see his number but a linebacker or lineman called it. Poorly coached team.

  77. 77 GEagle said at 3:04 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Put Casey in…FOles will know what to do with him..Riley and Avant aren’t doing anything. Replace them with our TEs, run the ball, play action to ertz

  78. 78 xeynon said at 3:04 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    The passing game is too inefficient with an inconsistent thrower like Vick at the helm, and the running game loses the matchup difficulties it poses with a pocket passer like Foles in there – I’m more convinced than ever that the quarterback needed to make this offense work in the NFL is not on the roster yet.

  79. 79 Spooonius said at 3:05 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I agree.

  80. 80 ACViking said at 3:11 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    How many of those QBs exist who can play at an NFL level?

  81. 81 xeynon said at 3:11 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Not many. Luckily at least a few of them look likely to come out in the draft next season.

  82. 82 shah8 said at 3:13 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Not really. Mariota, for example, is not even at Jake Locker level in terms of both arm or leg. Boyd is a raw passer, and Manziel doesn’t have the arm.

  83. 83 xeynon said at 3:20 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Obviously none of them are perfect prospects, but I think all three have the tools to be legit NFL quarterbacks.

  84. 84 Dragon_Eagle said at 3:05 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Uh Oh. Did the carriage turn back into a pumpkin?

  85. 85 BlindChow said at 3:05 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Ah, there’s the Eagles D we know and love…

  86. 86 Insomniac said at 3:06 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    So we might not have to see that damn salsa dance this week.

  87. 87 BC1968 said at 3:07 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Giants shoot themselves in the foot. Aren’t we supposed to do that?

  88. 88 Dragon_Eagle said at 3:07 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the bad Eli facial expressions.

  89. 89 scratcherk said at 3:07 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Manning face!

  90. 90 BC1968 said at 3:08 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    WOw holding like crazy on that play.

  91. 91 DamonL86 said at 3:08 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Gonna let them right back in game

  92. 92 DamonL86 said at 3:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    and there it is

  93. 93 Spooonius said at 3:08 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Wow. Not much pressure on Eli today.

  94. 94 SteveH said at 3:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Yeah its very concerning, the Giants OL is not good.

  95. 95 BlindChow said at 3:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Of COURSE.

  96. 96 BC1968 said at 3:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Back to the silk curtain.

  97. 97 Crus57 said at 3:10 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Silk is relatively expensive. This is toilet paper.

  98. 98 scratcherk said at 3:11 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Wet TP — 1 ply

  99. 99 BC1968 said at 3:11 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Dollar store weak brand.

  100. 100 Teehee said at 3:14 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    That might be a little too high quality for these guys

  101. 101 Corry said at 3:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Oh right…it’s still the Eagles defense.

  102. 102 BlindChow said at 3:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Playing back that far off the line in man coverage?

  103. 103 Dragon_Eagle said at 3:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Nate Allen must go.

  104. 104 GEagle said at 3:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    We got nate Allened!!!

  105. 105 BC1968 said at 3:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Can Foles hold it down for them?

  106. 106 ACViking said at 3:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Easily could have been a hold against Cox on that 3rd down

  107. 107 BC1968 said at 3:10 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    He got pulled around, absolutely.

  108. 108 DamonL86 said at 3:10 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Nate Allen and angles not a good combo

  109. 109 TommyLawlor said at 3:10 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Failed geometry.

  110. 110 BC1968 said at 3:11 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Hate to see his house.

  111. 111 Spooonius said at 3:13 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I will refer to him as Euclid from now on.

  112. 112 SteveH said at 3:10 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    And to add insult to injury the stream I’m forced to watch from is now turning into a slideshow.

  113. 113 GEagle said at 3:11 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    When will Chip bench Nate? Thought payers would be held accountable with Andy gone…grow a pair Chip!!!

  114. 114 BC1968 said at 3:12 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    How about a KO return?

  115. 115 scratcherk said at 3:12 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    how bout to the 20?

  116. 116 BC1968 said at 3:13 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Forgot about the barely any KO returns in the NFL safety concern.

  117. 117 BC1968 said at 3:12 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    No.

  118. 118 scratcherk said at 3:12 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I wish we hadn’t traded McNabb so that Nate Allen would have never become an Eagle.

  119. 119 Insomniac said at 3:16 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    We only drafted Allen before Gronk, Sean Lee, and Daryl Washington

  120. 120 James Adair said at 10:46 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Sean Lee, hugely over rated and now grossly over paid.

  121. 121 ACViking said at 3:12 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Reuban Randle — until then — was personally keeping the Eagles ahead in this game.

  122. 122 Flyineagle45 said at 3:14 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    D up to their old tricks again

  123. 123 scratcherk said at 3:15 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Brown must have set a record for horizontal runs out of bounds

  124. 124 DamonL86 said at 3:15 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    wheels coming off the bus

  125. 125 Flyineagle45 said at 3:15 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Lol right

  126. 126 BlindChow said at 3:16 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    3 & out. Surprise.

  127. 127 DamonL86 said at 3:16 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    That was an awful series

  128. 128 RichF said at 3:16 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    we’re about to get crushed huh.

  129. 129 BC1968 said at 3:16 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    We’re missing VIck now without a doubt. They have no worries on d

  130. 130 Spooonius said at 3:16 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I know we have to change it up, but I absolutely hate when Brown comes in. Especially when they run to the edge.

  131. 131 Flyineagle45 said at 3:16 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Here comes our d?

  132. 132 DamonL86 said at 3:17 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    21 – 19 coming up

  133. 133 BC1968 said at 3:17 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Fair catch interference I knew it

  134. 134 shah8 said at 3:17 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    *sigh* and now the backup looks like a backup.

  135. 135 xeynon said at 3:18 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    The problem is the starter also looked like a backup. This passing offense is BAD.

  136. 136 shah8 said at 3:19 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Seriously, you really need some self-awareness.

  137. 137 BC1968 said at 3:21 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    lol shah, they win going away with Vick there

  138. 138 xeynon said at 3:27 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Vick was effective running the ball. But he was lousy throwing it. He was 6-14 with a 69.0 passer rating. That is not NFL starter caliber passing, particularly against a horrible pass defense like NYG’s. If you think otherwise you need to go watch some teams that have actual good NFL quarterbacks and see what they do against bad pass defenses.

  139. 139 ACViking said at 3:18 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Or maybe it raises an issue with the scheme?

  140. 140 shah8 said at 3:20 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Not really.

    The big problem is the offense’s inability to generate easy throws. If there was some of that capacity there รก la Andy Reid, then Foles could look decent enough to finish the game.

  141. 141 ACViking said at 3:23 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    If you were right, then Foles would be doing better than “just good enough” to finish.

    The offense would be at a stand-still.

  142. 142 shah8 said at 3:24 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    With Alex Smith, Andy Reid is only getting one or two setup throws per series. Just works juuuuust enough.

  143. 143 BC1968 said at 3:24 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Their running game has proven ineffective without Vick in there.

  144. 144 shah8 said at 3:25 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    The safeties are up because of the lack of fear of a deep ball.

  145. 145 Flyineagle45 said at 3:17 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    God lets make easier for them

  146. 146 scratcherk said at 3:17 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Are u kidding me?

  147. 147 DamonL86 said at 3:17 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Incoming implosion

  148. 148 BlindChow said at 3:17 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Finding a way to lose.

    For some reason I still haven’t lost hope for this game.

  152. 152 ACViking said at 3:20 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I get that Kelly didn’t game plan today for Foles.

    But if the running game dissolves because the QB doesn’t present a running threat equal to a RB, then the scheme may be flawed.

  153. 153 ACViking said at 3:20 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Big “MO” is ready to tip back to the G-men

  165. 165 SteveH said at 3:23 PM on October 6th, 2013:

  189. 189 ACViking said at 3:29 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Regardless of outcome, I hope I never hear the word “Retool” again. Not for at least 5 or 6 years.

  190. 190 xeynon said at 3:32 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I don’t understand why “rebuilding” is such a dirty word. When you have a team that is 4-12 on merit, which lacks a franchise quarterback or any plus players on defense, it needs to be rebuilt, not re-tooled. You re-tool a vintage sports car that runs well but needs some body work and a new paint job, not a broken down jalopy like the 2012 Eagles.

  191. 191 ACViking said at 3:29 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Manning in an excellent rhythm now against the Eagles’ defense.

  206. 206 GEagle said at 3:33 PM on October 6th, 2013:

  207. 207 Flyineagle45 said at 3:33 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Why are we allergic to the end zone

  208. 208 GEagle said at 3:36 PM on October 6th, 2013:

  209. 209 xeynon said at 3:40 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Because when Vick is in, we can’t execute precision touch passes in small areas, and when Foles is in, our running game sucks. And because we don’t have any great physical receivers. It’s hard to get in the end zone with those sorts of limitations.

  210. 210 DamonL86 said at 3:34 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    sigh fgs not gonna cut it

  211. 211 BlindChow said at 3:35 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Even if we win this game, I won’t feel good about this one.

  212. 212 GEagle said at 3:35 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Why? Division games are battles. We need to learn to gut out a close dog fight

  213. 213 xeynon said at 3:37 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Why? Because win or lose, this is a bad team. The absolute best case scenario is they go 9-7, squeak into the playoffs because the rest of the NFC East also sucks, and get smeared in the first round of the playoffs by San Francisco, Green Bay, or some other legitimately better wild card team. And given that that may cost them the chance to draft a cornerstone QB, I’m not sure that counts as a “best case scenario” in the long run.

  214. 214 GEagle said at 3:40 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Lol…I’m trying to see us build something dog…I have no delusions of instant gratification…

  215. 215 anon said at 3:50 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Fuck the option..if Chip can’t run the ball without the option with the best back in the league, then get me a coach that can

  234. 234 OregonDucker said at 3:47 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Best back needs blocking.

  235. 235 GEagle said at 3:49 PM on October 6th, 2013:

  236. 236 anon said at 4:59 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    A rhyhem of 3 and outs? I think that’s exactly the thinking that Kelly goes against. Man coverage with no safety help — that should be big play all day.

  237. 237 shah8 said at 3:47 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    This was pretty true during Foles’ spate of starts last year in a different offensive system.

    Ugly series. Foles has to hit Avant with that throw on second down, and get rid of the ball on 3rd down rather than take that sack.

    B/c we are terrible. I think b/c we have no safety we’re so susceptible to deep balls that the middle of the field is open all day. Which terrible, b/c at the end of the day teams take 10 minutes of the clock with the short stuff and still get 6. I’d almost rather them just beat us over top and still give us time to get the ball back.

    Eli Eli’d the shit out of a pass that Kendricks intercepted. Celek made a circus catch for the TD on the very next play. Birds 29-Gmen 21.

  282. 282 Crus57 said at 3:57 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Blitzing Boykin catches Eli who wobbles one into the air, Kendricks intercepts and returns to the 20. First play, play action pass, Foles goes to Celek running up the seam who makes a great fingertip catch at full stretch in the endzone.

  283. 283 shah8 said at 3:56 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    That’s what a coach manufactoring a passing opportunity looks like! I was expecting run all the way, and screamed NOOOOO!!!! at the playaction, and I bet the Giants Defense went YESSSSSS!!!, but Kelec gets snuck down, and it’s ME that goes YESSSSS!!!, and the Giants go NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

  288. 288 xeynon said at 3:58 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I can’t decide which is the bigger mystery:

    1.)How has our offense scored 29 points, as bad as it has looked today?
    2.)How has our defense only given up 21 points, as bad as it has looked today?

  289. 289 Crus57 said at 3:58 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    O hello Defense, nice to meet u

  296. 296 SteveH said at 4:01 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Nate Allen still letting people get overtop of him.

  297. 297 Dragon_Eagle said at 4:01 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Wow Boykin.

  298. 298 anon said at 4:01 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Boykin!!!!!! That better be 10 ten plays.

  299. 299 GEagle said at 4:01 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Just sit back and watch my young D grow!!!! That’s what we are Building!!! Lol

  300. 300 anon said at 4:02 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    haha I don’t even want to get excited about this game. But whatever we can win ugly fine.

  301. 301 GEagle said at 4:03 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Gotta crawl before we can run

  302. 302 ACViking said at 4:01 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Colts trade for Richardson paying dividends.

  303. 303 anon said at 4:04 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    hahaha

  304. 304 ACViking said at 4:04 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Exactly!!!

    By the way, do you ever find your way over to Volkh Consp?

  305. 305 RichF said at 4:02 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    easy guys, we know how this crew feels about boykin. they’ll probably take it back.

  306. 306 ACViking said at 4:02 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    The game just SAWED!

  307. 307 OregonDucker said at 4:02 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    A player makes critical mistakes all game and then makes an interception that is EPIC!

  308. 308 xeynon said at 4:04 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Boykin has made some mistakes but he’s also the only player in this entire secondary with real playmaking ability.

  309. 309 Crus57 said at 4:03 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Can we credit Boykin with a steal there?

  310. 310 SteveH said at 4:03 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Boykin is a baller. Love that kid.

  311. 311 ACViking said at 4:03 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Pressure sometimes better than sacks.

    Boykin pressure causes INT

    Cox pressure causes INT

    That works

  312. 312 scratcherk said at 4:04 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    If this gets overturned, the fix is on

  313. 313 SteveH said at 4:04 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Been high on Boykin all season, he’s a playmaker. 3rd TO he has in 5 games.

  314. 314 GEagle said at 4:04 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Cox,Mykal,Boykin….that’s what we are building!!!

  315. 315 Spooonius said at 4:05 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    That might be the most awesome int I’ve ever seen.

  316. 316 GEagle said at 4:06 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Come on Chippah….Td ERTZY!!!!

  317. 317 GEagle said at 4:07 PM on October 6th, 2013:

  319. 319 scratcherk said at 4:07 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Now this is a qb controversy

  320. 320 RichF said at 4:08 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    32nd ranked d.

  321. 321 scratcherk said at 4:11 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    That vick could not throw against..

  322. 322 Dr. Claw said at 4:18 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    the Giants defense gave up after that Celek TD.

  323. 323 Corry said at 4:07 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    That was awesome.

  324. 324 Dragon_Eagle said at 4:07 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    DeSean Jackson redzone TD. Up is down and black is white.

  325. 325 BlindChow said at 4:08 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Did you just pull the race card?

    jk

  326. 326 OregonDucker said at 4:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    You have entered the TWILIGHT ZONE!!

  327. 327 GEagle said at 4:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Not a good look for 1-3 Vick and his continuos redzone struggles….is it too early for me to say Told you so? Lol JK…kinda ๐Ÿ™‚

  328. 328 anon said at 4:26 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Hah we have a QB that plays well between the 20s and one that plays well in the 20s.

  329. 329 Anders said at 4:27 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    omg Kelly should do QB by committee!

  330. 330 livingonapear said at 4:07 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Sooooo

    Between the 20s is Vick territory
    Red Zone is Foles’ territory?

  331. 331 shah8 said at 4:07 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Worst QB Draw Ever

  332. 332 TommyLawlor said at 4:08 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    We’ve actually seen worse.

  333. 333 shah8 said at 4:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I’m not going to count McMahon.

  334. 334 RichF said at 4:08 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    but nothing will burn time off the clock like a foles run.

  335. 335 xeynon said at 4:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    With you there. Foles might be able to score on that against a Pop Warner defense because he could carry five or six eight years olds into the end zone, but he wouldn’t be able to outrun them.

  336. 336 DamonL86 said at 4:08 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    That was a nice route

  337. 337 SteveH said at 4:08 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    lol, love Desean mocking Cruz’s salsa on the TD.

  338. 338 TommyLawlor said at 4:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I don’t encourage that kind of taunting … except against the Giants, Boys or Skins.

  339. 339 SteveH said at 4:10 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Yeah, I say taunt all day in this one. I hope he catches another one and starts doing back flips.

  340. 340 Flyineagle45 said at 4:09 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    OH YEA!!!!!!

  341. 341 xeynon said at 4:10 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Lovely route by Jackson, lovely touch pass by Foles. Is there any way we can play both quarterbacks at the same time?

  342. 342 Crus57 said at 4:12 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Like McNabb/Vick?

  343. 343 BlindChow said at 4:11 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Boos!

  344. 344 Flyineagle45 said at 4:11 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Play foles in the rz?

  345. 345 BlindChow said at 4:12 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    On further consideration, I will feel good about this game if we win in a blowout.

  346. 346 OregonDucker said at 4:12 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Come on D make Eli shrug and shake his head.

  347. 347 Corry said at 4:12 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    It’s a shame the Meadowlands doesn’t have real grass.because the tears of all the Giants fans could keep it lush and green for years.

  348. 348 shah8 said at 4:13 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    The grass would burn from all the salt.

  349. 349 RichF said at 4:12 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    man, this is really going to pad our D’s stats.

  350. 350 Flyineagle45 said at 4:12 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Ha Eli is making our d look like the Seahawks right now

  351. 351 xeynon said at 4:12 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Eli has thrown 12 picks through 5 games. Does he have a legitimate chance to break Vinny Testaverde’s single season record?

  352. 352 GEagle said at 4:12 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    DEFENSE!!! defense!!!!!!cDEFENSE!!!

  353. 353 Insomniac said at 4:13 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Eli being Eli.

  354. 354 Crus57 said at 4:13 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    That was a beautiful INT.

  355. 355 ACViking said at 4:13 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    ANON . . .

    ever to get to Volokh Consp?

  356. 356 Crus57 said at 4:13 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    We have ManningFace, repeat we have ManningFace.

  357. 357 ACViking said at 4:13 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Hakeem Nicks twice pulled up on slants. Cost the Giants.

  358. 358 Dragon_Eagle said at 4:14 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Why is Barbre out there? Someone hurt?

  359. 359 scratcherk said at 4:14 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Lane was hurt earlier

  360. 360 Flyineagle45 said at 4:14 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I’m sad McCoy doesn’t have 100 yrds

  361. 361 SteveH said at 4:15 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    why did we false start there lol.

  362. 362 ACViking said at 4:15 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Too soon to run the ball into an 11 man line.

  363. 363 BlindChow said at 4:16 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Donnie Jones killing it today.

  364. 364 Corry said at 4:17 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    3 fouls? Really? Holy crap.

    DEFENSE!!! defense!!! DEFENSE!!!
    ..
    “Not feeling good about this win”??? We just stepped on the throats of the Giants…0-5 is the equivalent of divisional sodomy!!!!! In my best Andy voice “ok, enjoy the win man”……we haven’t won a game in 3 weeks and we are complaining that it ain’t pretty?
    ..
    We beat the Giants because of our young QB and our young defenders!!!!!!

  368. 368 BlindChow said at 4:18 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Game isn’t over, man. Seriously, this is the Eagles we’re talking about…

    that sucks, we downed them at the 1 inch line.

  371. 371 GEagle said at 4:19 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I predicted 34-24 Birds…close enough after being wrong for 3 weeks lol

    I don’t watch the birds with rose colored glasses on.

  373. 373 SteveH said at 4:19 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    goddamn, huge penalties there, 20 yards of field position lost and now they arent on their own goal line.

  374. 374 Flyineagle45 said at 4:19 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Lol we beat the giants because of Eli manning being on our team

  375. 375 GEagle said at 4:21 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Yeah our defense had nothing to do with it…thanks for a day of valuable contributions of negativity

  376. 376 xeynon said at 4:22 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I don’t understand Eli. On any given Sunday he can look like the best quarterback in the NFL or the worst, and this season it’s been all the latter. How did this guy win two Super Bowls?

  377. 377 BlindChow said at 4:23 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    He didn’t renew his contract with Satan.

  378. 378 Corry said at 4:20 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Vinny Curry sighting!

    Curry!

  381. 381 anon said at 4:20 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Billy davis is f-ing up. Why is curry only playing now? We have no pressure all day and we put VC in and manning losing like 10yds + the grounding.

  382. 382 Insomniac said at 4:21 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Jim Washburn 2.0

  383. 383 SteveH said at 4:22 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I saw Curry in on a few snaps in the 1st half, but I dont know the exact count.

  384. 384 Flyineagle45 said at 4:21 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Bd sucks

  385. 385 Anders said at 4:22 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    BennIe!

  387. 387 BlindChow said at 4:22 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Sacks, interceptions and fumbles! Maybe the D will start playing with more confidence, even if the Giants really are that bad.

  388. 388 anon said at 4:22 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I really hope chip takes it down for another TD.

  389. 389 McNabbulousness said at 4:23 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    WHEW!!! just got back to the house, what’d i miss?!

  390. 390 anon said at 4:24 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    3 quarters of ugly, then defense started picking it up — 3 picks. Celek finally makes a catch.

  391. 391 McNabbulousness said at 4:24 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    sounds about right

  392. 392 SteveH said at 4:26 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    It was pretty dramatic, momentum see-sawed back and forth several times. Giants jumped out early, then we won the 2nd quarter, then the Giants came back, then we came back, then the Giants looked like they were going to take the lead, then Eli threw a bad pick, then we buried them and now the game is over.

  393. 393 OregonDucker said at 4:23 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Vinny is killing them! Bennie got the sack but….

  394. 394 SteveH said at 4:23 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Yeah Curry forced him up when he beat the tackle off the edge.

  395. 395 RichF said at 4:24 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    yeah, he should play more.

  396. 396 xeynon said at 4:26 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I get that they don’t want to risk getting McCoy hurt and save wear-and-tear on him.. but is Bryce Brown the best guy to be giving the ball to in a “closer” situation? I’d much rather see Polk carrying it here, cuts down on the chances of a “miracle at the Meadowlands”.

  397. 397 SteveH said at 4:27 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Yeah I was wondering about that as well. Guess the coaches are putting some trust in him. He hasn’t really had fumble issues so far this year.

  398. 398 T_S_O_P said at 4:26 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Tommy, you writing the victory wrap yet?

  399. 399 OregonDucker said at 4:26 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Time to pour ourselves a drink and salute the Eagles – The D NEVER GAVE UP!!!

  400. 400 ACViking said at 4:27 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    GAME BALL?

    Nick Foles

  401. 401 Insomniac said at 4:28 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Is there any doubt? If there is any then maybe Boykins.

  402. 402 Crus57 said at 4:28 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Brandon Boykin.

  403. 403 ACViking said at 4:29 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    But those penalties?

    Both, perhaps?

    Can’t win if you don’t score

  404. 404 Crus57 said at 4:30 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Both sounds good!

  405. 405 shah8 said at 4:30 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I think I’d mostly have to go with the defense getting those late turnovers. Short fields leads to nice daggers for the offense.

  406. 406 ACViking said at 4:31 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Really?

    Hmm.

    Without the points, the turnovers mean nothing — especially since the Eagles were losing in the 4th Q.

  407. 407 anon said at 4:33 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    You can’t really take it away from the D. Given how they’ve been playing 3 short field turnovers is epic from them. That said Foles did put it in the end zone, which is great.

  408. 408 xeynon said at 4:34 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Except for a few drives in the third quarter there, Foles played really well and saved the offense’s bacon after Vick got hurt and the rushing attack stalled. I think I’d go with Boykin for the game ball though. Penalties aside, he authored the two biggest defensive plays of the game by forcing that pop up that Kendricks picked off and then making that diving play to steal that interception from Cruz. Those were both big time NFL playmaker type plays.

  409. 409 ACViking said at 4:40 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    It’s what you do with TOs that matters just as much.

    Give them both a beer and an ball.

    Please don’t take a knee…please score a td.

  412. 412 GEagle said at 4:28 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Chip got bailed out today by a young QB/Djax and a young defense….did not like the play calling…looked like Andy stubborn throw it at all costs…taking what the defense gives you, attacking weaknesses are great…but you also have to impose your will at times and dictate to the defense, which I’m not seeing lately
    ..
    But if I have patience for young defenders, then I have to have it for Chip….what makes it’d youth for Chip is our division is so weak that it gets fans competitive juices flowing, when in reality Chip definitely needs ATleast an entire season to adjust

  413. 413 anon said at 4:32 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    I really don’t know what to think. I’m ok passing since our run game is getting stuffed, but offense didn’t look great. Defense is terrible to watch, but we got a bunch of picks. Foles looks good — obviously helped by the short field, but we scored TDs so i’m happy.

  414. 414 jshort said at 4:29 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    wonder what foles qb rating is

  415. 415 Crus57 said at 4:31 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Nick Foles: 16 of 25 for 197 yards, 2 TDs, no INTs, 114.9 rating. According to Jeff McClane’s tweet.

  416. 416 anon said at 4:30 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Who would have thought we would have a positive turnover differential with this D?

    I really hope B. Davis doesn’t think he’s doing something right — unless he starts playing curry more.

  417. 417 BlindChow said at 4:34 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    The corners weren’t playing off so much on those last drives. Maybe he’s learning!

    Uh-oh, you jinxed them!

  426. 426 Crus57 said at 4:32 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    So 20 of our 36 points came with Foles at QB. Not bad.

  427. 427 Flyineagle45 said at 4:34 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Well having a short field because of manning turn overs help

  428. 428 BlindChow said at 4:35 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Yeah, but they still have to go through the red zone to score.

  429. 429 ACViking said at 4:35 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    What about when you 1st-and-goal at the 7?

    Is that not a short field?

  430. 430 ACViking said at 4:35 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    It’s not like the Eagles were grinding out 17-play drives with Vick.

  431. 431 anon said at 4:38 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Let’s just enjoy the win. We were winning with Vick in the first half, Foles completed a comeback and played like a starting QB (thank god). Team win.

    D showed at the end. I really hope the team builds a lot of confidence coming out of this game bc we didn’t have any going in.

    Problem is with Foles no run game, but pass game is better — red zone is better. Vick has run game, but not red zone, apparently only ok passing. I think Foles might have a better touch ball — pretty pass to Celek.

    So Vick gets us to the red zone, then we send in Foles?

    They are actually good people over there for Giants fans. They can take some fun and smack talk as long as you are respectful

    Boy they need to go on suicide watch over there. I almost feel bad for them!

    Re: Foles v. Boykin

    Boykin made a couple of key plays, for sure.

    But consider Foles. He came into this game at the end of the 1st half down inside the 10 or so. And gets the team close enough for a FG going in at the half.

    In the 2nd half, he takes full advantage of the TOs with a pair of beautiful TD throws.

    And led the Eagles to a 4th Q come-from-behind victory. That’s what the record shows.

    Foles — unlike Boykin — hasn’t been playing every week. Or taking more than a few 1st-team reps, if any.

    Plus, NO turnovers by Foles, despite the handicaps.

    Foles came in cold after 4 games on the bench except for 4+ minutes of garbage time.

    A great game for the kid

    Did you catch Foles quickly stashing the #7 Voodoo doll under the bench when his number was called?

    The humor is always has a grain of underlying truth.

    Foles won the game ball. And a round of applause.

    We lost all momentum in the 2nd half on the road, and our back up young gunner stepped up, and beat a Rival on the road, throwing the entire time with little help from shady…How many reps could FOles have really gotten in practice?..
    ..
    We laugh it off because the giants suck, but we were 1-3 with a new coach, and this inexperienced kid came in cold and saved the sky from falling…

    Why can’t we just give this damn kid some experience and seasoning? He is flawed but he has more MOXY than Romo showed in 90 NFL starts…I just don’t get it…develope the damn kid. What do we hav to lose? Mike Vick? Who gets hurt untouched in week 5? WTF!!!!

  447. 447 OregonDucker said at 5:00 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    We need to savor this victory and salute the Eagles. Tomorrow we can argue who the QB starter should be. Foles did a fine job as did the D in the 4th quarter. There is a lot to celebrate and a lot to fix!

  449. 449 Corry said at 4:56 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    The Broncos are employing the Eagles defense where no one is near the receivers.

  450. 450 Anders said at 4:57 PM on October 6th, 2013:

    Also included 3 rushers and 1 blitzer from the slot.

    Right now, the Giants are the 1968 Eagles. You had to be there. Hurt a lot.

    We we get Peyton as OC? Wonder if he’d automatically be the best on out there.
