    How you like that DEFENSE!!! DEFENSE!!! DEFENSE!!!!

  3. 3 Corry said at 1:05 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Good effort by Boykin there.

  4. 4 BlindChow said at 1:07 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Great start!

  5. 5 BobSmith77 said at 1:07 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I want to know if the Eagles
    can keep Cruz in check again. They did in the first matchup with a lot
    of double coverage which left Nicks in one-on-one most of the day where
    he really took advantage.

    Given how porous and crummy this pass defense is for the Eagles, they
    have to pick their poison and basically decide to try to stop Cruz
    again or stop Nicks. One of these guys is going to have a huge day I
    bet (~125-150 yds receiving, 1 TD).

    As long as the Eagles win the turnover battle, I am confident they will win today. Just need the ‘turnover machine’ version of Vick where he has 1-2 FF and 1-2 INT.

  6. 6 GEAGLE said at 1:10 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Don’t be talking bad about our defense on game day!!! The same defense that will have to carry us today

  7. 7 GEAGLE said at 1:07 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I can’t tKe Mike Vick…I just can’t do it

  8. 8 DamonL86 said at 1:08 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Bad throw

  9. 9 Corry said at 1:08 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Well that could have gone better.

  10. 10 BlindChow said at 1:08 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I’m sure that was just his hamstring.

  11. 11 ToastJenkins said at 1:08 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    can tell Vick is back…

  12. 12 TommyLawlor said at 1:10 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Very weird play. Don’t know what Vick expected.

  13. 13 GEAGLE said at 1:11 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    A weird play is a play that you don’t typically see….seen that play all too many times πŸ™‚

  14. 14 OregonDucker said at 1:12 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Maybe Celek curled the wrong way. That’s what it looked like.

  15. 15 BobSmith77 said at 1:11 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    My favorite screen name here.

  16. 16 scratcherk said at 1:08 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Eh, similar to a punt now I guess..

  17. 17 SteveH said at 1:09 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Yeah my thought too lol, thanks for the illegal demonstration NYG.

  18. 18 SteveH said at 1:10 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I think we should just bench Vick and Foles, choosing between death by incompletion and death by turnover – not great choices.

  19. 19 xeynon said at 1:18 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    This is life without an elite quarterback. Should make all the people who disliked McNabb when he was here thankful for what we had.

  20. 20 GEAGLE said at 1:22 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Stop it

  21. 21 GEAGLE said at 1:13 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Li MORTACCI TUA!!!!!!!

  22. 22 ACViking said at 1:16 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Easy, easy. It’s nothing we haven’t seen. No reason to threaten anyone.

  23. 23 GEAGLE said at 1:17 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Lol

  24. 24 ACViking said at 1:13 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Eagles have no one who can do what Nicks did — out muscle a CB on a back-shoulder pass

  25. 25 Corry said at 1:18 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    No we really don’t. The defense needs a lot of pieces yet, but I would like to see them try to bring in a physical receiver with that kind of talent. Mike Evens out of TAMU might be of interest.

  26. 26 GEAGLE said at 1:21 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Evans, Barr, Mack…..who is the big tall 6’5, 6’6 WR who is a first round prospect?? Can’t think of the school. Maybe texas

  27. 27 anon said at 1:30 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Manziel’s dude from A&M?

  28. 28 Corry said at 1:31 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    That’s Mike Evans.

  29. 29 GEAGLE said at 1:36 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    No….I know Evans…it’s not a big name WR…but it’s a huge 6’6 WR slated to go in round 1 or two….can’t think of his name or school…lol I know, I suck

  30. 30 DamonL86 said at 1:13 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    no pressure at all

  31. 31 GEAGLE said at 1:13 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I hate home games

  32. 32 GEAGLE said at 1:15 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    CARY WILLIAMS!!!!mC-DUB is in the BUILDING!!!!

  33. 33 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:15 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    D-E-F-E-N-S-E

  34. 34 GEAGLE said at 1:16 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Drexel dragons unite like VOLTRON on game day!!!!

  35. 35 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:16 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Nicks needs acting lessons.

  36. 36 TommyLawlor said at 1:16 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Jeremy Maclin could teach him a lot.

  37. 37 GEAGLE said at 1:16 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Eagle showed pressure beautifully and then everyone dropped back,,,good disguise great coverage by C DUB!

  38. 38 ACViking said at 1:18 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Si parla un dialetto romanesco?

  39. 39 GEAGLE said at 1:20 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Si…o imparatto prima Italiano Classico…pero o visuto a Roma dal 2009-2011 alora o imparatto il slang Romano

  40. 40 bill said at 1:16 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Looking forward to the usual suspects twisting and turning to describe how that int was the fault of the oline and celek.

  41. 41 GEAGLE said at 1:17 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Don’t be silly,,,it was the hamstring

  42. 42 Corry said at 1:19 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    That line drive kick is almost like the Giants just inviting Johnson to bring the ball out…which isn’t the worst strategy…

  43. 43 BobSmith77 said at 1:20 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I never thought I would long for Reno Mahe to return kicks again but Johnson makes it so. Slow and ill-advised decisions to boot.

  44. 44 Neil said at 1:20 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Whatever else you can say about this D, they have played good run defense all year. That’s going to get you third downs.

  45. 45 BobSmith77 said at 1:21 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    That’s because teams realize you can pass all day long against this defense and just about anywhere on the field.

  46. 46 BobSmith77 said at 1:22 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Have people looked at their passing defense stats? Their bottom 5 in almost every category.

  47. 47 Neil said at 1:24 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    No, the run defense is schematically sound and executed effectively. The pass defense isn’t good before the throw, but the eagles tackle well and force the offense to run another play.

  48. 48 GEAGLE said at 1:22 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Vick making this defense look incredible

  49. 49 Corry said at 1:22 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Boo birds out early.

  50. 50 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:23 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Replay! Challenge!

  51. 51 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:23 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Ok. Maybe not.

  52. 52 SteveH said at 1:24 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    heh, yeah it was close though.

  53. 53 BobSmith77 said at 1:23 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Vick is a dumba$$ despite the incredible talent and you just can’t change that. Most frustrating Eagles’ QB to watch in a long, long time. Much more so than McNabb.

  54. 54 xeynon said at 2:16 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    McNabb was a top 5 quarterback for a lot of years. I’d kill to see what he could’ve done in Chip Kelly’s offense in his physical prime.

  55. 55 GEAGLE said at 1:25 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Put in Barkley now, to let him get the jitters out before the second half…we don’t need to watch a 10yr veteran to get this type of QB play…our 4th round rookie with a Quarter of experience can easily provide a performance like this

  56. 56 BobSmith77 said at 1:26 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    You are the most schizo poster on here. Your opinion changes more rapidly than the wind.

  57. 57 GEAGLE said at 1:28 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I would say that I’m consistently against Vick…I don’t know what type of poster you are! because your oppinion is too irrelevant to register in my memory bank. Sorry, try again next week lol

  58. 58 BobSmith77 said at 1:29 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    You don’t pull the starter after 2 drives and you were all in favor of Vick winning the job this summer.

    Your just a kneejerk dope whose opinions change with little consistency.

  59. 59 ACViking said at 1:27 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Hai imparato bene durante la vostra permanenza a roma

  60. 60 GEAGLE said at 1:29 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Grazie. I was born here, but my parents taught me Italian first, figured I would be forced to learn English in Kindergarden, and we always spoke Italian in the house..spent all my summers in Italy when ii was growing up….per che tu parli cosi bene?

  61. 61 ACViking said at 1:36 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Ho appreso da amici nel mio quartiere sono i miei clienti

  62. 62 GEAGLE said at 1:48 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Are you kidding? You live in America and you just learned to speak great Italian from friends? Lol…impressive..

    I always knew how to speak it and read it, but I didn’t actually learn to write it til I lived there and had to talk to people on Facebook lol go figure

  63. 63 Corry said at 1:26 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Wolff has got to get better at rushing the passer.

  64. 64 ACViking said at 1:27 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Maybe the Eagles could play a home game in London

  65. 65 Neil said at 1:29 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    It’s unbelievable how reasonable that sounds.

  66. 66 GEAGLE said at 1:30 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I have been asking for that lol

  67. 67 ACViking said at 1:30 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I miei complimenti. molto saggio

  68. 68 Crus57 said at 1:31 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I’d be there, screaming my lungs out.

  69. 69 ACViking said at 1:31 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    You . . . and 60,000 well lubricated Englishmen

  70. 70 Corry said at 1:28 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Ok…who gave Eli the “Dirty Sanchez”?

  71. 71 ACViking said at 1:29 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Game shaping up as a classic, “The Giants are Keeping the Eagles in This Game . . . “

  72. 72 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:30 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Yep. Just hope our offense wakes up in time.

  73. 73 GEAGLE said at 1:32 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Bend but don’t break defense is keeping us in the game

  74. 74 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:32 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    A good decision from DJ. Glad to see it.

  75. 75 BlindChow said at 1:33 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Vick is really opening up that run game!

  76. 76 GEAGLE said at 1:33 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Fill some two back sets, unfortunately shady keeps dancing

  77. 77 BlindChow said at 1:33 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Casey!

  78. 78 GEAGLE said at 1:33 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    CAAAAAAASEY!!!!!

  79. 79 scratcherk said at 1:34 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Mike vick looks horrible

  80. 80 Dan said at 1:39 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    He looks hurt, relax. He keeps bringing his hand down to his left hamstring, its the coaches fault for rushing him back.

  81. 81 Corry said at 1:35 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Vick doesn’t look great the line is just putrid.

  82. 82 scratcherk said at 1:35 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Brown magnetically attracted to sideline

  83. 83 Corry said at 1:35 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    At least he didn’t fall down this time.

  84. 84 J. Brian said at 1:36 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    This is ugly.

  85. 85 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:36 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    We need a TO.

  86. 86 scratcherk said at 1:37 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    We need a QB.

  87. 87 Crus57 said at 1:37 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Also better O-Line right now

  88. 88 Eric Carranza said at 1:36 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Barkley time again?

  89. 89 GermanEagle said at 1:38 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I am so bored.

  90. 90 SteveH said at 1:39 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    This is going to be one of those games… the slow grueling soul sucking death of game…

  91. 91 jshort said at 1:38 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    5qts no td’s

  92. 92 OregonDucker said at 1:38 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Damn, I’m out of whisky!

  93. 93 Crus57 said at 1:39 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    That could be serious, this early in the game.

  94. 94 SteveH said at 1:39 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    May god have mercy on your soul.

  95. 95 jshort said at 1:39 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    good idea..wasn’t thinking about that watching this….breaking some out

  96. 96 GEAGLE said at 1:40 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Damn ducker..my condolences…I’m pouring a shot of Johnny Walker blue in your honor!!!

  97. 97 OregonDucker said at 1:42 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Rub it in GEagle. I do have martini mix,, but I don’t dare……oh, what the hell!!

  98. 98 mksp said at 1:43 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    WTF is “martini mix”? You mean dry vermouth?

  99. 99 OregonDucker said at 1:45 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Vermouth and either gin or vodka. I’ve gone with gin.

  100. 100 mksp said at 1:46 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Good call. I thought you meant some godawful prepackaged mix meant to mix with gin, and I was very confused.

  101. 101 GEAGLE said at 1:44 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Hahahah a desperate times, call for desperate drinking!!

  102. 102 GEAGLE said at 1:39 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Hopefully our defense scores a TD, so they can get right back on the field and fans can get a little break from The great Mike Vick

  103. 103 GEAGLE said at 1:42 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    We are down voting defensive TDs now? Hahahahahahaha i LOLed

  104. 104 BobSmith77 said at 1:39 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Ugly first qtr by both teams.

  105. 105 BlindChow said at 1:39 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Remember, this is how Vick looked in the first Giants game. He was able to move the chains with his legs in that one, though.

  106. 106 T_S_O_P said at 1:41 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Praying that Matt is better this week when he comes on :whistle:

  107. 107 GermanEagle said at 1:43 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    this is the first time this season that I want the eagles to tank it.

  108. 108 Corry said at 1:43 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    So how boring is this game? The announcers are talking about Peyton Hillis getting a pizza.

  109. 109 GEAGLE said at 1:43 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Can Chip call 3 run plays in a row, and shady run straight 3 times in a row? I think it’s time those two understand that they have to pick up the slack for our “QB”

  110. 110 mksp said at 1:44 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Maybe if Shady manages to gain more than 2 yards on the first two….

  111. 111 GEAGLE said at 1:50 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I’ll take two yards over the potential disaster that is Vick trying to be a pocket “QB”

  112. 112 DamonL86 said at 1:44 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Slant not defended something you hardly see against us

  113. 113 BobSmith77 said at 1:46 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Nice play by Allen.

  114. 114 scratcherk said at 1:48 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Looks like he got poked in the eye

  115. 115 Corry said at 1:49 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Looked like they were fooling around with his jaw though…

  116. 116 SteveH said at 1:50 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    We fall off sharp depth wise at corner, can’t really afford a major injury there.

  117. 117 Weapon Y said at 1:49 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Marcus Mariota, here we come.

  118. 118 DROQQA said at 1:50 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    We can only hope.

  119. 119 BobSmith77 said at 1:50 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Giants have had the ball for over 15 minutes. Eagles just 5. This defense is going to start breaking sooner than later if that keeps up.

  120. 120 SteveH said at 1:51 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    More important than TOP is # of plays, which the Giants are crushing us in even worse than TOP I believe.

  121. 121 BobSmith77 said at 1:52 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Agreed but the defense is going to get gassed. Eagles are still very much in this game even down 9-0.

  122. 122 BobSmith77 said at 1:52 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    It is 28 to 11.

  123. 123 Iskar36 said at 1:53 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    The thing is, we haven’t really been a “bend but don’t break” defense right now. Giants are just playing bad football. They are leaving points on the field. That last one for example would have been a TD if the receiver paid any attention at all to where the endzone ended.

  124. 124 BobSmith77 said at 1:55 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Agreed but they have 2 weapons on offense (Hicks and Cruz) right now and that is it.

  125. 125 Iskar36 said at 1:56 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Yep. That’s sort of my point. The defense is already “broken,” the Giants are simply not taking advantage.

  126. 126 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:51 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    That does it. Getting another beer.

  127. 127 ToastJenkins said at 1:52 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    this isnt even enjoyable to watch…

  128. 128 OregonDucker said at 1:54 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Want a martini? I’m enjoying a strong one. At least I’m feeling better.

  129. 129 ToastJenkins said at 2:01 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    its taking alot right now not to break out some single malt

  130. 130 BobSmith77 said at 1:54 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Giants are sneaking up Rolle into the the box an awful lot early. I wouldn’t mind seeing the Eagles try a play-action bomb on the 1st play here to Jackson deep.

  131. 131 GEAGLE said at 1:55 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Ok it’s time for one of you FOCKERS to play that game where you take your pants off and put them back on…try something!!! Anything!!!!, it’s only “weird” if it doesn’t work

  132. 132 OregonDucker said at 1:56 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I changed to just boxers. Seems to be working.

  133. 133 GEAGLE said at 1:55 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Hey…shady just ran straight. Look at that

  134. 134 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:56 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Golf clap.

  135. 135 BobSmith77 said at 1:56 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    ‘A 1st down Ladies and Gentleman.’ Love Merrill’s ability to be dead pan at times.

  136. 136 GEAGLE said at 1:57 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Celek limped off..ERTZY time

  137. 137 GEAGLE said at 1:59 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Can I. Downvote myself?

  138. 138 GEAGLE said at 1:57 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Veteran move by peters jumping offside

  139. 139 OregonDucker said at 1:58 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    My boxers only are working.

  140. 140 GEAGLE said at 1:59 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Wife made me put a t-shirt on. No first down on this series. Damn.

  142. 142 GEAGLE said at 2:01 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Tell her all of Eagles nation just gave her a roaring BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

  143. 143 BlindChow said at 2:00 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Wow, the Eagles might not even be worth watching this year. This is terrible.

  144. 144 Corry said at 2:00 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    There’s just no effort out there right now. Wow.

  145. 145 BobSmith77 said at 2:00 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Amazing how little respect defenses are giving the Eagles’ offense the last 2 weeks and their ability to make something happen offensively down the field beyond 10 yards.

    Everybody on the Giants’ defense is playing up including Rolle a ton early.

  146. 146 SteveH said at 2:01 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    It’s a shame too because if Foles had been not awful we could have hit a bunch down the field last week too, stuff was open he was just playing terrible.

  147. 147 BobSmith77 said at 2:03 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    No pressure and Manning is having a solid pocket to throw with clean lanes on almost every play.

  148. 148 SteveH said at 2:04 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Dead silent at the Linc.

  149. 149 BobSmith77 said at 2:04 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    There hasn’t been a single play to cheer so far.

  150. 150 BlindChow said at 2:04 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Of COURSE there’s a flag.

  151. 151 BobSmith77 said at 2:05 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Weak call.

  152. 152 GEAGLE said at 2:05 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I think I enjoy the offseason more then the season…

    Lol they just gave the giants a 30yard PI penalty lol..amazing

  153. 153 scratcherk said at 2:07 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I’ve thought this before. It is depressing.

  154. 154 GEAGLE said at 2:09 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    You want depressing? I have Tix to the next 4 home games!!! I would trade 4 home games for 1 road game ANY day….now that’s depressing

  155. 155 BobSmith77 said at 2:06 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Merrill’s right ‘The only thing the crowd has enjoyed today is the fall weather.’

  156. 156 SteveH said at 2:07 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Kendricks is flashing a bit today, good to see.

  157. 157 Insomniac said at 2:08 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Come on Boykins. Gotta get him down.

  158. 158 SteveH said at 2:09 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    gotta hack at the ball arm with Eli, he’s always going to make those desperation heaves.

  159. 159 scratcherk said at 2:08 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Might as well put barkley in at this point. Vick is obviously not 100%.

  160. 160 BobSmith77 said at 2:09 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Agreed at this point. Vick isn’t even moving well in the pocket. Still in this game even at 12-0.

  161. 161 scratcherk said at 2:09 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Ask and ye shall receive

  162. 162 scratcherk said at 2:09 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I think I’ll regret it.

  163. 163 GEAGLE said at 2:11 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I can tolerate bad play from a rook

  164. 164 Dragon_Eagle said at 2:10 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Whoa! Barkley!

  165. 165 T_S_O_P said at 2:10 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Called it, and thank goodness for it. Come on Matt.

  166. 166 BobSmith77 said at 2:11 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Eskin reporting Vick wasn’t removed due to injury and the trainers didn’t even look at him.

  167. 167 scratcherk said at 2:11 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Eskin is not reliable.

  168. 168 BobSmith77 said at 2:13 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Yeah he just ‘reports’ a lot of stuff as the sideline reporter but that is a really tough job. You can’t double-check sources and the reason they go to your in the first place is because they want something as it is happening.

  169. 169 scratcherk said at 2:11 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Oh hello offense.

  170. 170 BlindChow said at 2:11 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Completions!

  171. 171 GermanEagle said at 2:11 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Hey GEagle,
    The eagles should get rid of those goal posts, what a bum! They make the Giants kicker with ZERO pro bowls look good!!!

  172. 172 GEAGLE said at 2:13 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Huh? Don’t you mean MM?

  173. 173 GEAGLE said at 2:11 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Listen to how fired up the Linc just got lol

  174. 174 Iskar36 said at 2:12 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Can anyone explain to me why our run game is not working? I don’t care if we can’t run the read option right now with our QBs, McCoy is still an elite talent and our offensive line SHOULD be able to open up holes.

  175. 175 Corry said at 2:12 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    offensive line is getting zero push.

  176. 176 shah8 said at 2:14 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    playing very poorly in general, the interior.

  177. 177 Iskar36 said at 2:15 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    No question about that, but I don’t understand why that’s the case. We should have a talented group and it seems we can’t open holes without using the read option.

  178. 178 BobSmith77 said at 2:16 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    How good is Herremans anymore and how good is Kelce as a running blocking C?

  179. 179 Corry said at 2:20 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I honestly think they’re having trouble matching up with the strength on the inside of the Giants Dline. Mathis, Kelce, and even Herremans are far more athletic than they are strong. I don’t think they can get the push.

  180. 180 Iskar36 said at 2:25 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Maybe, but it makes you wonder if that dictates what kind of QB/offense you need to run. I’d hate to have to draft pretty much an entire oline.

  181. 181 Corry said at 2:27 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I think having to draft a new oline is going to happen regardless. Looking at their ages, only Kelce and Johnson are under 30. I’m also not sure I trust the guys on the bench right now to step in and take a job in the coming years.

  182. 182 Iskar36 said at 2:29 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    True. Kelce though is a guy I am hoping you can work with, but if he is unable to open up holes in the running game, that’s tough on the rushing attack.

  183. 183 Corry said at 2:35 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I do wonder if they didn’t have Kelce at center if they would be asking whoever was there to do a lot of pulling on run plays. He’s athletic enough to snap the ball and then get out there in front and lead around the edge. Is a Center that is strong enough to get a push in the middle going to be athletic enough to get up on the 2nd level and lead those pull plays? I think they’d have to pick a fairly high to get the combo of strength and athleticism.

  184. 184 BobSmith77 said at 2:13 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Numbers game and how close the Giants are playing up at the line. They have 7 or 8 up front on almost every running play.

  185. 185 Insomniac said at 2:12 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  186. 186 mksp said at 2:13 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    The potential for a Foles/Barkley QB controversy next week is too much for my feeble brain to comprehend.

  187. 187 xeynon said at 2:19 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I think we should re-sign Dixon and Kinne so we can have a five way controversy over which of our QBs sucks the most.

  188. 188 OregonDucker said at 2:14 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Ok rookie show your stuff!!

  189. 189 Weapon Y said at 2:14 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    If Barkley gets his shit together and does well, maybe he stays in for a few games. If he still does well, maybe we don’t have to postpone the defensive makeover. Im still a huge skeptic , but I’m rooting for the guy.

  190. 190 BobSmith77 said at 2:15 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    All right. Thanks Kiwanuka.

  191. 191 Dragon_Eagle said at 2:15 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    He got the Tom Brady treatment.

  192. 192 GEAGLE said at 2:15 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    If a defense is just going to stack the box and we can’t make them pay in the passing game, then it’s friggin time to go to a Heavy set and pound the frigging ball

  193. 193 A_T_G said at 2:16 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Barkley’s cadence really gives defenses trouble.

    Yea… ugh so damn frustrating.

  201. 201 GEAGLE said at 2:17 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Brady is having a bad season. Numbers are career-worst across the board and their o-line has been struggling alot.

  224. 224 GermanEagle said at 2:23 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I didn’t think I would say this so soon, but Chip Kelly’s playcalling sucks.

  227. 227 SteveH said at 2:23 PM on October 27th, 2013:

  230. 230 GEAGLE said at 2:27 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Unfortunately we said that in January…yet here we are, only for Chip to tell us after the game that Mike Vick is the starting QB when healthy, and our friggin Idiot players and their bullshit 2004 hero worship are actually on board with it…

  231. 231 Joseph Dubyk said at 7:22 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    yup

  232. 232 Flyineagle45 said at 2:24 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    do the eagles think its april first?

  233. 233 BobSmith77 said at 2:24 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Only good thing about this half is the game is still within reach. Just worried the defense will have enough left in the tank in the 2nd half especially late.

  234. 234 BlindChow said at 2:25 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Maybe it’s just me, but this game doesn’t look in reach at all.

  235. 235 BobSmith77 said at 2:26 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Its only 12-0, the Eagles get the ball back first in the 2nd half, and this Giants’ team stinks with 2 pedestrian RBs.

  236. 236 GermanEagle said at 2:27 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I think the Eagles stink more…

  237. 237 BobSmith77 said at 2:30 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I’ll give up if they were playing a team with a good defense or a team that could grind out the game with a QB who doesn’t make shaky decisions. Giants don’t have any of those.

    This game is still there if the Eagles can put a score on the board early in the 3rd qtr.

  238. 238 BlindChow said at 2:29 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    The Giants can win against this team by scoring only FG’s.

  239. 239 Flyineagle45 said at 2:26 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    i wonder what cheering feels like

    Yeah, but all three of them know better than to get their hopes up.

  244. 244 ACViking said at 2:32 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I’m not sure there’s much difference in the offensive performance of the Eagles and Jags the last two weeks.

    3 points in 6 Qs

  245. 245 ACViking said at 2:27 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Has USC hired a new coach yet?

  246. 246 ACViking said at 2:27 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Does Chip really need this aggravation?

    If he has a friggin spine he does…if he is ok with being remembered as spurrier, then be my guest

  248. 248 DarthBanner said at 2:27 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I don’t understand why you would rush to score on 1st and goal from the 2 with 1 minute left and 2 timeouts. Why wouldn’t you run Mccoy and protect your young quarterback? Worst case scenario the Giants stop it and you eat some clock. Kelly has to get better at clock management.

  249. 249 GermanEagle said at 2:29 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I said it before. Maybe Chippah is not the offense guru in the NFL. At least his playcalling is not good.

  250. 250 BlindChow said at 2:29 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Watching how good the Ducks looked yesterday depressed me.

  251. 251 Weapon Y said at 2:28 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    I’ve rarely seen use two in-line tight ends like the 49ers do. I think it would really help in the run game and would work great with a no-huddle. Is that because Celek and Ertz are really that bad at blocking?

  252. 252 GermanEagle said at 2:31 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    No, it’s Chippah’s fault. Btw can we please stop with this matchup BS. James Casey is a nice free agent BUST.

  253. 253 Iskar36 said at 2:31 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    Yep.

  254. 254 BobSmith77 said at 2:32 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    You could say the same about a lot of the other FA signings by Roseman so far too.

  255. 255 GEAGLE said at 2:34 PM on October 27th, 2013:

    You have to play to be a bust….or was Curry a bust last year? Im not taking the blame off of Kelly and putting it on Howie til my eyes see Casey suck”……prob is that Howie signed him to be a TE. Kelly didn’t get the memo, and thought we brought in another QB πŸ™‚
