Let’s go Eagles!!!
How you like that DEFENSE!!! DEFENSE!!! DEFENSE!!!!
Good effort by Boykin there.
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.
Don’t be talking bad about our defense on game day!!! The same defense that will have to carry us today
I can’t tKe Mike Vick…I just can’t do it
Well that could have gone better.
I’m sure that was just his hamstring.
can tell Vick is back…
Very weird play. Don’t know what Vick expected.
A weird play is a play that you don’t typically see….seen that play all too many times
Maybe Celek curled the wrong way. That’s what it looked like.
My favorite screen name here.
Eh, similar to a punt now I guess..
Yeah my thought too lol, thanks for the illegal demonstration NYG.
I think we should just bench Vick and Foles, choosing between death by incompletion and death by turnover – not great choices.
This is life without an elite quarterback. Should make all the people who disliked McNabb when he was here thankful for what we had.
Li MORTACCI TUA!!!!!!!
Easy, easy. It’s nothing we haven’t seen. No reason to threaten anyone.
Eagles have no one who can do what Nicks did — out muscle a CB on a back-shoulder pass
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.
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
Manziel’s dude from A&M?
That’s Mike Evans.
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
no pressure at all
I hate home games
CARY WILLIAMS!!!!mC-DUB is in the BUILDING!!!!
Drexel dragons unite like VOLTRON on game day!!!!
Nicks needs acting lessons.
Jeremy Maclin could teach him a lot.
Eagle showed pressure beautifully and then everyone dropped back,,,good disguise great coverage by C DUB!
Si parla un dialetto romanesco?
Si…o imparatto prima Italiano Classico…pero o visuto a Roma dal 2009-2011 alora o imparatto il slang Romano
Looking forward to the usual suspects twisting and turning to describe how that int was the fault of the oline and celek.
Don’t be silly,,,it was the hamstring
That line drive kick is almost like the Giants just inviting Johnson to bring the ball out…which isn’t the worst strategy…
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.
Whatever else you can say about this D, they have played good run defense all year. That’s going to get you third downs.
That’s because teams realize you can pass all day long against this defense and just about anywhere on the field.
Have people looked at their passing defense stats? Their bottom 5 in almost every category.
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.
Vick making this defense look incredible
Boo birds out early.
Ok. Maybe not.
heh, yeah it was close though.
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.
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.
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
You are the most schizo poster on here. Your opinion changes more rapidly than the wind.
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
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.
Hai imparato bene durante la vostra permanenza a roma
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?
Ho appreso da amici nel mio quartiere sono i miei clienti
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
Wolff has got to get better at rushing the passer.
Maybe the Eagles could play a home game in London
It’s unbelievable how reasonable that sounds.
I have been asking for that lol
I miei complimenti. molto saggio
I’d be there, screaming my lungs out.
You . . . and 60,000 well lubricated Englishmen
Ok…who gave Eli the “Dirty Sanchez”?
Game shaping up as a classic, “The Giants are Keeping the Eagles in This Game . . . “
Yep. Just hope our offense wakes up in time.
Bend but don’t break defense is keeping us in the game
A good decision from DJ. Glad to see it.
Vick is really opening up that run game!
Fill some two back sets, unfortunately shady keeps dancing
Mike vick looks horrible
He looks hurt, relax. He keeps bringing his hand down to his left hamstring, its the coaches fault for rushing him back.
Vick doesn’t look great the line is just putrid.
Brown magnetically attracted to sideline
At least he didn’t fall down this time.
This is ugly.
We need a TO.
We need a QB.
Also better O-Line right now
Barkley time again?
I am so bored.
This is going to be one of those games… the slow grueling soul sucking death of game…
5qts no td’s
Damn, I’m out of whisky!
That could be serious, this early in the game.
May god have mercy on your soul.
good idea..wasn’t thinking about that watching this….breaking some out
Damn ducker..my condolences…I’m pouring a shot of Johnny Walker blue in your honor!!!
Rub it in GEagle. I do have martini mix,, but I don’t dare……oh, what the hell!!
WTF is “martini mix”? You mean dry vermouth?
Vermouth and either gin or vodka. I’ve gone with gin.
Good call. I thought you meant some godawful prepackaged mix meant to mix with gin, and I was very confused.
Hahahah a desperate times, call for desperate drinking!!
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
We are down voting defensive TDs now? Hahahahahahaha i LOLed
Ugly first qtr by both teams.
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.
Praying that Matt is better this week when he comes on :whistle:
this is the first time this season that I want the eagles to tank it.
So how boring is this game? The announcers are talking about Peyton Hillis getting a pizza.
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”
Maybe if Shady manages to gain more than 2 yards on the first two….
I’ll take two yards over the potential disaster that is Vick trying to be a pocket “QB”
Slant not defended something you hardly see against us
Nice play by Allen.
Looks like he got poked in the eye
Looked like they were fooling around with his jaw though…
We fall off sharp depth wise at corner, can’t really afford a major injury there.
Marcus Mariota, here we come.
We can only hope.
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.
More important than TOP is # of plays, which the Giants are crushing us in even worse than TOP I believe.
Agreed but the defense is going to get gassed. Eagles are still very much in this game even down 9-0.
It is 28 to 11.
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.
Agreed but they have 2 weapons on offense (Hicks and Cruz) right now and that is it.
Yep. That’s sort of my point. The defense is already “broken,” the Giants are simply not taking advantage.
That does it. Getting another beer.
this isnt even enjoyable to watch…
Want a martini? I’m enjoying a strong one. At least I’m feeling better.
its taking alot right now not to break out some single malt
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.
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
I changed to just boxers. Seems to be working.
Hey…shady just ran straight. Look at that
‘A 1st down Ladies and Gentleman.’ Love Merrill’s ability to be dead pan at times.
Celek limped off..ERTZY time
Can I. Downvote myself?
Veteran move by peters jumping offside
My boxers only are working.
My Johnny Walker blue isn’t working!!!
Wife made me put a t-shirt on. No first down on this series. Damn.
Tell her all of Eagles nation just gave her a roaring BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Wow, the Eagles might not even be worth watching this year. This is terrible.
There’s just no effort out there right now. Wow.
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.
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.
No pressure and Manning is having a solid pocket to throw with clean lanes on almost every play.
Dead silent at the Linc.
There hasn’t been a single play to cheer so far.
Of COURSE there’s a flag.
I think I enjoy the offseason more then the season…
Lol they just gave the giants a 30yard PI penalty lol..amazing
I’ve thought this before. It is depressing.
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
Merrill’s right ‘The only thing the crowd has enjoyed today is the fall weather.’
Kendricks is flashing a bit today, good to see.
Come on Boykins. Gotta get him down.
gotta hack at the ball arm with Eli, he’s always going to make those desperation heaves.
Might as well put barkley in at this point. Vick is obviously not 100%.
Agreed at this point. Vick isn’t even moving well in the pocket. Still in this game even at 12-0.
Ask and ye shall receive
I think I’ll regret it.
I can tolerate bad play from a rook
Called it, and thank goodness for it. Come on Matt.
Eskin reporting Vick wasn’t removed due to injury and the trainers didn’t even look at him.
Eskin is not reliable.
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.
Oh hello offense.
The eagles should get rid of those goal posts, what a bum! They make the Giants kicker with ZERO pro bowls look good!!!
Huh? Don’t you mean MM?
Listen to how fired up the Linc just got lol
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.
offensive line is getting zero push.
playing very poorly in general, the interior.
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.
How good is Herremans anymore and how good is Kelce as a running blocking C?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The potential for a Foles/Barkley QB controversy next week is too much for my feeble brain to comprehend.
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.
Ok rookie show your stuff!!
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.
All right. Thanks Kiwanuka.
He got the Tom Brady treatment.
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
Barkley’s cadence really gives defenses trouble.
POSITIVE THINGS ARE HAPPENING! POSITIVE THINGS ARE HAPPENING!
Soooo…FG or turnover?
Magic eight ball – FG
I hate you…
It’s the Eagles.
Yea… ugh so damn frustrating.
Tell you what, Barkley is a smart composed kid….moment doesn’t look too big for him
The Running Game doesn’t work anymore because it’s Vanilla-flavored.
Had Kelly chosen Cheesecake, it’d be kicking butt
Crowd has finally gotten back into it.
Barkley is making reasonably NFL throws.
Show what you got rook.
We briefly forgot this was the Eagles.
Time to freshen my drink.
Clown play bro. Clown play.
Why get cute at the 2
I blame Cooper.
He is an easy patsy.
I LOVE BEING AN EAGLES FAN.
*walks off a bridge*
Wait for me….suicide pact?
1st & goal, from the 2, great OL, one of the best backs in the game. Why the hell doesn’t Andy Reid run the ball?
Cuz the asshole knows I have shady in fantasy!!!
Shoulda drafted J. Charles
Right….what a mindfuck
My wife is removing sharp objects from my vicinity. I guess I look suicidal.
Funky day around the league…Romo, Brady having bad games…Brees had a slow start.
Brady is having a bad season. Numbers are career-worst across the board and their o-line has been struggling alot.
I didn’t think I would say this so soon, but Chip Kelly’s playcalling sucks.
Maybe Phil Sims wasn’t that wrong???
Figured I’d comment so you don’t get caught talking to yourself
Barkley needs to understand he’s not going to get away from NFL defenders.
Vick era should be over.
He can’t stay healthy.
Let the kids play
trade for newton!
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…
do the eagles think its april first?
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.
Maybe it’s just me, but this game doesn’t look in reach at all.
Its only 12-0, the Eagles get the ball back first in the 2nd half, and this Giants’ team stinks with 2 pedestrian RBs.
I think the Eagles stink more…
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.
The Giants can win against this team by scoring only FG’s.
i wonder what cheering feels like
Watch the fans in the game in London . . .
We need a new stadium
Just remember, we could be Jaguars fans. It could be worse!
Yeah, but all three of them know better than to get their hopes up.
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
Has USC hired a new coach yet?
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
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.
I said it before. Maybe Chippah is not the offense guru in the NFL. At least his playcalling is not good.
Watching how good the Ducks looked yesterday depressed me.
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?
No, it’s Chippah’s fault. Btw can we please stop with this matchup BS. James Casey is a nice free agent BUST.
You could say the same about a lot of the other FA signings by Roseman so far too.
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
Has the Linc begun emptying out yet?
Re: Adjustments in 1st Rematch
So far the Giants are winning . . . BIG
True, but the Eagles weren’t playing with a QB until their final drive…
GEagles . . .
Best comment today?
“Attendere per me . . Patto suicida.”
Lol sad but true..pur troppo, Ai raggione
Anyone got Vince Young’s cell number?
That’s kicking below the belt….harsh lol
Oh man…another half hour of this? Smh
Pat Haden’s loving this.
Just saying . . .
close but no cigar
