Mike Vick is out and Matt Barkley is in. Vick really struggled. He didn’t look healthy and was hesitant with his reads. The offense struggled so Chip Kelly replaced him with Barkley late in the 2nd Qtr.
Barkley then led the Eagles right down the field. Unfortunately he made a horrible decision in the Red Zone and held the ball way too long. He was sacked, fumbled and the Giants recovered.
Barkley was 6-7-55. The offense came to life with him in the game. Was that a fluke or can he keep the offense going in the 2nd half?
This is still a very winnable game. The Eagles get the ball to open and a TD could really change things.
Barkley has to be smart in the Red Zone. Can’t force things. Might help if Chip Kelly ran the ball and gave Shady a chance to make a play down there.
