PHI 17 , WAS 0 – 2nd Half

Posted: November 17th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 606 Comments »

Team looks terrific today.

Only concerns are health related. Shady left with hammy injury. Nick’s arm seems to be bugging him.

Shutout for 30 minutes means I’m halfway to a dream. Please let Christmas come early…

  • T_S_O_P

    Thou shalt to mention shut out.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      bah. i was going to post something saying “no one talk about it!” but i was afraid that would in itself jinx it. guess its too late now

    • Mike Flick

      My fault. I should have known better.

  • bdbd20

    This game needs more Jeff Maehl.

  • ACViking

    T-Law:

    I think 472 comments in a 1st half is an IgglesBlitz record.

    Thanks for hosting.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Nick’s arm is bugging him? i missed most of the halftime show. what is this about?

    • jshort

      when did they say that?

      • TheRogerPodacter

        its in Tommy’s post above.

    • Crus57

      He has been swinging it around to loosen it up since the hit he took.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        ahh ok. thanks. i didn’t notice that. throwing arm?

        • Crus57

          Yeah. He doesn’t grimace while doing it though so seems more an annoyance than anything serious.

        • Tumtum

          I didn’t notice that either. He did get crushed a few times though so it would not surprise me.

  • ACViking

    Re: No McCoy and His injury

    Kelly won’t even admit when players are missing limbs.

    I doubt we’ll anything meaningful about McCoy.

    Have to watch the field to find out.
    ____________

    Now, we may get to see how Kelly’s running scheme works w/out those ankle-breaking cutbacks to the edge by McCoy

  • BlindChow

    Shady helmeting up!

  • McNabbulousness

    i just saw shady with his helmet on!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    wow. 5 plays of 20+ yards already.

  • SteveH

    Holy Mccoy back in.

  • McNabbulousness

    erin andrews with info!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    McCoy looks jes fine.

  • ACViking

    Ok . . . McCoy’s the Smoothy King

    • BlindChow

      They gave him a smoothie IV in the locker room.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        was hoping to find an image of the Simpsons where Barney says “Plug it into my veins!” but no luck.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    need more Cooper in this game.

    • McNabbulousness

      and more cow bell

  • Andy124

    Nice slide.

  • McNabbulousness

    who needs mccoy when you got the mad wheels of FOOOOLLLLLEEESSS!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Cut Ertz.

    • McNabbulousness

      dont cut him!

  • SteveH

    Ertz with the stone hands…

    • BlindChow

      Celek taught him that one.

  • ACViking

    Put in Casey

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Don’t cut Ertz.

    • Iskar36

      Hahaha

    • SteveH

      rofl.

    • Spooonius

      Hahaha I was right there with you

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ertzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • ACViking

    Keep in Ertz

  • http://imdoingmybest.com Bill N.

    Making up for it there.

  • Andy124

    Wasted no time making up for it. Good job Foles still trusting him.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    there’s some cooper!

  • Corry

    Oh that’s weak!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn. hands to the face on peters? that was pretty iffy…

  • SteveH

    wow, foles dragged down by the facemask and eagles get penalized.

    • Iskar36

      Looked like the defender got his hand under his collar and not his facemask.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        isn’t that exactly what Peters did to the defender? : P

        • Iskar36

          Peters was pushing up under the facemask… Defender was pulling down under the collar.

  • Andy124

    Damn, thought that was going to be against thejm.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    geez. how did mccoy find a hole to run through there?

  • McNabbulousness

    i know mccoy’s looking really good, but id like to see some more b brown

  • SteveH

    Foles is playing so awesome today, making throws short, long, under pressure… just crazy.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    GO FOR IT!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    inches to go? punch it.

  • Corry

    Go for it on 4th and inches. Do it!

  • McNabbulousness

    GO FOR IT!

  • DamonL86

    sneak it

  • TheRogerPodacter

    2 of 5 on 4th downs this year? did we really miss it 3 times?

    • Corry

      Yeah that shocked me.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    OH YEAH!! Bury the Skins

  • SteveH

    Foles is on fire.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    djax is playing very well today. love it.

  • Corry

    You can’t stop Nick Foles. You can only hope Chip Kelly takes his foot off the gas.

  • McNabbulousness

    offense is looking sharp

  • McNabbulousness

    horsey time

  • Andy124

    So, how much should we give up to move up in the draft to get our franchise qb?

    • Crus57

      We should give up a chair. So he can sit in the room with the rest of the staff.

  • Pennguino

    Loving the quick smart decisions

  • TheRogerPodacter

    mccoy slow to get up?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      all right nevermind.

  • McNabbulousness

    hamstring does look good, SHAAAADDDYYY!!!

  • bdbd20

    Ref must have McCoy on his fantasy team.

  • SteveH

    That was our longest TD drive of the year.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      by yards or by time?

      • SteveH

        Time.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I love the fact that we don’t call 3 pass plays in a row when in the redzone any more. Or that stupid f’n shovel pass every knows is coming.

  • Pennguino

    That was a TD. Should have challenged again. They need to get that fixed

  • jshort

    Cooper crossed goal…..kelly says f it just run another play

    • TheRogerPodacter

      WE WILL NOT CHALLENGE

      • jshort

        no time for that shit

        • McNabbulousness

          fire pat shurmer anyway

  • bdbd20

    Ok, that was fun. I want to see Shady next to Vick for the rest of the game.

  • ACViking

    Foles is 5 yards on 3 completions short of having 3 TD passes — or thereabouts

    • SteveH

      Yeah its almost unfortunate because he’s playing a monster game, but stats might not reflect it like they should.

      • Andy124

        Still has a 111 rating.

        • TheRogerPodacter

          really?! damnnnnnnn. i like it.

          • Andy124

            I don’t know man. It’s 21 points less than his season rating. Clearly, regression to the mean is occurring here. Better trade him now while his value is still high.

          • TheRogerPodacter

            thats true, but i feel like at least one of those TDs should have gone to Foles (the cooper one is most recent thus comes to mind). i think that would boost the QBR quite a bit.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        yea, but i dont care because he’s winning! keep it going!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      lots of FF players must be pissed this week!

  • GermanEagle

    Shut. Out. Please.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      With all due respect… Shut. Up. Please.

      • McNabbulousness

        just win please

      • A Roy

        I believe the phrase you’re looking for is STFU.

        • Andy124

          Wow, people take their jinxes seriously around here.

          • A Roy

            Just having fun.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      shhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    • Andy124

      You sold yet?

    • jshort

      why did u have to say that

  • Pennguino

    I haveFoles and Coop in one of my leagues. IT WAS A TD….Damn you challenge people.. Damn you I say. haha

    • SteveH

      It’s weird, in some of my games that would have helped in some it would have hurt, so I dont know how to feel about it haha.

      • Pennguino

        I have Shady on that team also so I am OK with it. AS mentioned below, It would be nice for Foles to be getting the TD’s to help him out.

        I just want the win no matter what. Mt FF teams can suck it if we win

  • ACViking

    Celek said to Cooper, “I got F***ed, too”

    • ACViking

      What about Foles?

      And those Fantasy people.

      And GEAGLE?

      • jshort

        where is g

        • Crus57

          at the game, I believe.

  • Insomniac

    An Eli commercial with the words “Be precise” and “Be powerful”. Haha the irony.

    • BlindChow

      Yeah I bet they want THAT money back!

    • McNabbulousness

      fuck eli and his two lucky as fuck sb wins

  • Pennguino

    Nice ‘tude tackle by Roc

    • McNabbulousness

      i really hope you said that in the connery voice

      • Pennguino

        haha..

  • Dragon_Eagle

    T. COLE!!!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    COLE AGAIN! (but thornton did all the work)

  • McNabbulousness

    TRENT MOTHERFUCKIN’ COLE

    • BlindChow

      I hope you said that in the Connery voice.

      • McNabbulousness

        hahaha touche

  • DamonL86

    im impressed with bennie logan

    • McNabbulousness

      second that motion

  • Pennguino

    Trent Baby!!! You old blue tick hunting dawg.

  • Thomas
    • TheRogerPodacter

      good to see this again!

  • jshort

    like sharks

  • Iskar36

    Defense is playing so well today. I love it.

  • ICDogg

    Kurt Coleman with a play

    • A Roy

      Full moon?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Coleman with the FF? hmmmm

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Must be our day if Kurt Coleman is making plays.

    • Corry

      I think he just loves playing the ‘Skins. Remember his 3 INT day?

      • Dragon_Eagle

        Kurt’s finest moment.

  • Spooonius

    They are getting better and better

  • ACViking

    I’m sorry this game’s only going to be 60 minutes.

    The Washington team could play the Eagles for 3 hours today and never get a whiff of winning.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    time for a couple of 9 min drives on offense!

  • McNabbulousness

    sav rocca wants nothing to do with djax

  • SteveH

    Holy, fox just changed the feed to the steelers lions game.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      what the fuck? thats balls.

    • Corry

      I’d be losing my mind.

    • ICDogg

      The Steelers look like escaped bumblebee convicts

      • McNabbulousness

        was that because they were convicted of negligence in that whole dolphin/tuna lawsuit?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      this is why internet piracy exists. because cable companies screw us over every chance they get.

  • http://imdoingmybest.com Bill N.

    They’re switching the broadcast in SF because the Eagles are winning.

  • ToastJenkins

    getting close eh Tommy? will it rain PBR when we get the shutout? or a pudding bath?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! STOP IT

  • Pennguino

    Loved the VC rub on RGIII. Intimidation and dominance. Glad he didnt draw a flag

  • GermanEagle

    tommy. Don’t get excited. The shutout is possible

    • jshort

      oh man …just think it

    • TheRogerPodacter

      c’mon man. really?

      • GermanEagle

        Why do I get a downvote????

        • Andy124

          People are worried about you jinxing it.

          • GermanEagle

            No, today is the day. ;)

  • ACViking

    Re: PREDICTION

    The Eagles WILL be flexed back onto SNF this season.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Cardinals? Lions? Bears?

      • Andy124

        Oh My!

        • McNabbulousness

          beat me to it

  • DamonL86

    doh they switched over to detroit game up here boo

    • wallacemnw

      yep nyc too

      • Spooonius

        Dammit! They switched in Cali too

        • wallacemnw

          Yeah i really wanted to enjoy this one.

        • McNabbulousness

          luckily the central virginia market is still safe, probably bc this is redskins country

  • shah8

    Time to get out of the game without getting any more injuries.

  • ACViking

    Owww . . . But SHanahan’s a genius

  • ICDogg

    3rd and long after that sack. But they’re killing some clock.

  • OregonDucker

    Damn Fox just switched to the Steelers game on the West coast! They say that Chip has the game in the bag!

    • BlindChow

      You guys are lucky. In Alabama we got Tampa-Falcons from the get-go.

    • Pennguino

      yep missed the last drive. Saw the punt

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I love the ‘Skins special teams.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn. i really wanted to recover that fumble.

  • Pennguino

    FU FOX. They switched the game to the Det game. Had to switch over to my Sunday Ticket feed

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      What the hell??? They switched me here as well!
      M-f-ers!!!

  • ICDogg

    whoa, Skins muffed the punt, but got it back

  • SteveH

    Wow, sure wish I could watch the freaking game.

  • ACViking

    RE: Night time football

    With Kelly . . . it’s safe to predict tThe Eagles will be regulars on SNF and MNF for quite a while.

  • Crus57

    On the up side, I have to pay for NFL GamePass to be sure of watching the Eagles every week, so I still get to watch the game.
    On the down side, that costs about $150 a season, not including offseason coverage.

    • Anders

      People in the USA pays a lot for sunday ticket (and they do not get monday and thursday night games)

      • Crus57

        Fair enough. I guess the NFL has all of us exactly where they want us.

  • Anders

    How come, me as an outsider has better rights when it comes to NFL games than Americans? I never get blackouts and I can watch what ever game I want, when I want

    • Andy124

      Economics? Probably less demand, so it’s given away more cheaply?

    • ACViking

      American anti-trust laws.

      • ACViking

        Actually, it’s an exemption Congress wrote into the A/T laws that allows the NFL to limit domestic content

        • Anders

          For a liberal country you guys sure has a lot of non liberal laws

          • ACViking

            Money buys access.

            The NFL owners have lots of money.

            And therefore lots of access

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      YouTube sucks just as bad when it comes to that crap.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Would someone please cancel that Sleepy Hollow crap?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    big catch and run for Garcon vs Cary. : /

    • BlindChow

      On a slant.

  • ICDogg

    Eagles with a 2 man rush

    • BlindChow

      Curry is 2 men all by himself.

      • McNabbulousness

        play this man more!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    just my 2 cents to everyone who just lost the game – i use a slingbox, installed at my parents house. not the best of quality, but guaranteed to get me the game every week. : )

    • jshort

      more detail later, Please

      • TheRogerPodacter

        no problem – Slingbox is a device that you plug into a video source and it then sends that video over the internet. I have it hooked up to an extra cable box in my parents closet. they are in south jersey so it’ll always have the game.
        the slingbox has a IR transmitter so you can control whatever it is connected to remotely.
        i got this thing in college at rutgers when we tended to have the giants game over the eagles games.

        • BlindChow

          The NSA has forwarded this comment to the FBI, who will be with you shortly.

        • McNabbulousness

          thx im in the same position in va, they will always show the skins over philly and/or any other compelling game

    • Pennguino

      I bought the Madden anniversary just to get the free Sunday Ticket over the internet. I played the game once.

    • McNabbulousness

      sorry to sound like an idiot, but whats a slingbox?

  • ACViking

    Best game by Trent Cole in at least 3 years

  • McNabbulousness

    anyone listening to the these guys on fox, “wow you really put a description on that!” hillarious

    • SteveH

      Nothing like a bunch of big sweaty men laying on top of you.

      • Crus57

        With no way out.

        • McNabbulousness

          probably getting flashbacks of the hotel room last night

  • Bob Brewer

    Someone needs to Storify Washington’s Twitter feed. No indication of the score.

  • Corry

    More points please.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Foles, lol. Needs a wee bit of work on his blocking.

    • Andy124

      About as effective as Vick against San Diego. Clearly, QBs as a whole not spending enough time on blocking drills during practice.

  • ICDogg

    2nd 3-and-out in a row.

  • ACViking

    Don’t like short yardage runs out of the Shotgun.

    Call me old-fashioned

  • Baloophi

    BlindChow –

    Where in Alabama are you?

    • BlindChow

      Huntsville.

      • Baloophi

        Mrs. Baloophi hails from just north of Birmingham. We were in Huntsville last month for a wedding… I may have checked out the Space & Rocket Center…

        • BlindChow

          You can see it from space!

          • Baloophi

            That will mess with your head…

  • SteveH

    Eagles dialing it back too early again, seems to be a theme against washington.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    COX BABY!

  • Andy124

    Glorious

  • ICDogg

    Cox has the INT for real this time

    • ICDogg

      or maybe not

  • Baloophi

    Goode tip!

  • McNabbulousness

    NOW COX HAS HIS FIRST CAREER INT!

    • McNabbulousness

      nevermind

  • TheRogerPodacter

    don’t you dare take this one away from him too!

    • Bob Brewer

      They will

      • TheRogerPodacter

        yea… : / sigh…

  • jshort

    hehehe

  • Andy124

    sonuva. 3rd autoreplay to go against us this game?

  • ACViking

    Once again, Replay is proven unnecessary

  • Baloophi

    Shurmur is killing us!

    • McNabbulousness

      im with ya, fire him

  • Dragon_Eagle

    BS. He had control of it, cough, cough.

  • jshort

    thats the last time i hehehe

  • SteveH

    Replay is the worst…

  • ICDogg

    meh. Getting sloppy now.

  • ICDogg

    end of the q

  • McNabbulousness

    damn fletch, nice tackle

  • jshort

    washington wanting to run time

  • Pennguino

    Barwin is the worst. How can he not see that blue line….haha

    • Crus57

      How do QBs ever get delay of game with that big countdown clock projected on the field in front of them?

  • Baloophi

    4th quarter, Eagles up 24 – 0

    Tommy…

  • jshort

    like the talking heads said…our D stinks

  • ACViking

    Re: 4th Q

    Time for Kelly, when the Eagles get the ball up 24-0, to devise a 13-minute drive.

  • Andy124

    Grey cloud:If the D keeps doing this, we’re never going to get to see how Foles responds to the pressure of keeping up in a high scoring game.

    • Crus57

      That may be what the playoffs are for.

      • Corry

        Super Bowl…when we play the Broncos.

        • McNabbulousness

          5 years from now when going for the “one for the thumb”

  • ACViking

    Fletcher Cox soon = Richard Seymour v.2001-2007?

    • McNabbulousness

      oh the sentence almost made me shit my pants

  • jshort

    i lied….hehehe

  • McNabbulousness

    THEY GIVE IT TO SMITH AND THEY STOP EM AGAIN!!!!

  • ACViking

    The Miami Dolphins ’73 could run out the clock from the 50.

    Can Kelly?

  • SeanofDead

    Griffen kinda sucks

    • TheRogerPodacter

      Griffey Jr was better.

  • Baloophi

    If Shurmur challenges this…

  • SteveH

    Only thing I dont like about this game is they’ve gotten too much pressure… but Kerrigan and Orakpo are good players.

  • Mike Flick

    15 MInutes until a shutout. Break two annoying streaks in a row!

  • Weapon Y

    14 minutes to Christmas, Tommy

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i realize i’m just setting myself up for disappointment, but ….
    commence 14 min + drive!

  • shah8

    This is an awful offensive performance by the Redskins! Geez, can’t throw or run, or nuttin’.

  • Pennguino

    RUN THE PLAY

  • McNabbulousness

    i always love when the graphic comes up of what they gave up for griffin

  • Andy124

    Sure does seem like the offense is completely off the gas at this point.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      yea…..

    • Pennguino

      looking ugly

    • Corry

      and pulled the e brake…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    holy……… shit……. wowwwwwwwww

    • McNabbulousness

      spin cycle

      • BlindChow

        Circle button.

        • McNabbulousness

          delicates setting

  • Dragon_Eagle

    We’re getting sloppy. I know we’re up big, but want to put the dagger in these guys.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      there was a lot of talk of “we learned our lesson last time we played these guys to not let off the gas” sooo….. we let off the gas again.

      • Andy124

        Yup. Too soon imo.

      • Anders

        Injuries, timeouts, penalties is killing us, all gives stop in play

  • SteveH

    whoa, anyone else just get a watery effect on lynch’s voice there?

    • SteveH

      My stream is randomly adding a flange to peoples voices, its bizarre.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Wait. Wasn’t there a new rule about runners with the ball lowering their head? Not that I’ve heard it called all season long, but…

    • Anders

      Never been called, not sure what it really is.

  • jshort

    Foles just cant throw a td pass at home

  • McNabbulousness

    the underrated part of that last run was he stayed in bounds to run the clock, the ‘ol 10 min offense

  • nicolajNN

    Babin ripped off another players hair today

    • McNabbulousness

      ewww

  • Andy124

    Bryce looked like he didn’t know he was getting the ball there.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    hmm. not sure i want them to go for it on 4th down there : / but hindsight and all.

  • ACViking

    HATE. SHORT-YARDAGE. RUNS. OUT. OF. THE. SHOTGUN.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    god fucking dammit.

    • Spooonius

      I second that remark.

  • Corry

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Dragon_Eagle

    oh shit.

  • Baloophi

    Disaster

  • ToastJenkins

    why do you go for it there?? punt and pin their incompetent O back

  • DamonL86

    sigh

  • McNabbulousness

    hope cole’s alright

  • ACViking

    That’s why you don’t run 4th-and-1 out of the shotgun

  • Baloophi

    I guess Patrick Chung finally hit someone…

    • McNabbulousness

      funny, yet not funny

      • Baloophi

        Yeah…

    • Crus57

      He really got landed on by Cole.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    the worst part of this is that it makes RG3 look good.

  • DamonL86

    that is awful

  • SteveH

    I blame GermanEagle.

  • DamonL86

    let them right back in

  • Baloophi

    4th down attempt looking worse and worse…

    • Anders

      Why, We was in no mans land. Punt would maybe have netted 10-15 yards

      • TheRogerPodacter

        Donnie has been punting very well today. there is a good chance he could pin them deep. or, at worst, you make them work an extra 15 yards or so.

        granted, that play would have scored from 99 yards so it probably doesnt matter.

  • McNabbulousness

    time for the offense to ramp up again

    • Baloophi

      This will be a good test to see if they can do just that…

      • McNabbulousness

        true story

  • DamonL86

    of course they get the 2

  • BlindChow

    Was that on Allen?

    • Corry

      yeah, but looked like he might have gotten caught up in traffic on that bunch set.

    • Anders

      He was blocked by a Redskins.

  • ACViking

    I don’t remember a 2-pt conversion defensed by BOTH safeties on the Eagles that well.

  • Andy124

    Silver Lining:Maybe this will get Kelly’s foot back on the gas.

    • Anders

      Has he really let the foot of the gas or is the offense just not blocking well, taking penalties etc?

      • Andy124

        Well, that one was certainly on the blocking.

        • Anders

          We have also had a few holding or similar calls

  • ACViking

    That TD pass by Griffin came because the DL lost pass-rush lane integrity.

    It happened earlier in the game . . . and the seemed to stop from mid-2nd Q until that TD

    • Anders

      Or RG3 just outjuked them like crazy. he was heading up field

      • ACViking

        Cox was totally out of his lane

        • Anders

          Cox was inside guys, so doubt he had outside contain.

          • ACViking

            Griffin stepped up inside the outside rusher to where Cox was supposed to be . . . then broke outside

          • Anders

            So Cox went inside and Griffin broke outside, again how did Cox have outside contain?

          • ACViking

            Cox didnt have outside contain.

            He had tackle-lane contain.

          • ACViking

            And Cox moved toward the center instead of staying in his lane.

  • shah8

    Man, I’m crashing my computer constantly with all the tornadoes and the game…

  • Baloophi

    “Almost Human” is having a two night premiere… shouldn’t that be a zero night premiere?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      we’re not that lucky.

    • McNabbulousness

      foles’ first 3 qts have been…takes his shades off…almost human

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Time to respond. Let’s go Nickfolean

  • SteveH

    We need to get aggressive.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    c’mon peters.

  • McNabbulousness

    spin cycle, again!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      so nasty.

  • Baloophi

    Super Cooper!

  • McNabbulousness

    big first down

  • Dragon_Eagle

    When’s the last 1st down we had?

    • Andy124

      Now

  • McNabbulousness

    FFFOOOOOLLLLLLEEEEESSSSS!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    foles is very opportunistic in his running.

  • Pennguino

    Across body with a little heat. Nice

  • Baloophi

    Foles should’ve used the McCoy spin move…

  • BlindChow

    Foles going for his first 100-yard game.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ugh. mccoy runs backwards! damn.

    • McNabbulousness

      happens every once in while with his style

  • SteveH

    When all the Eagles pop up after the fake count and look at the sideline I feel like I’m watching meerkats.

    • Baloophi

      Visual…

      • Baloophi

        The meerkat on the left is looking to the wrong sideline… idiot.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    why am i still worried about this game?

    • DamonL86

      because we let them hang around

    • Crus57

      You’ve watched more than one Eagles game before?

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Perhaps you’ve seen Eagles games before.

    • McNabbulousness

      because you’re watching a team from philadelphia

    • SteveH

      We let the foot off the gas too early on offense, shoulda gotten to 31 before we did.

      • jshort

        we like to do this against skins

    • ACViking

      Because Kelly runs 4th and 1 plays out of the shotgun

  • ACViking

    Griffin needs to be defended on pass plays the way the Redskins, in the 1990 playoffs, defended Randall Cunningham.

    The famous Mush Rush, with every defender staying in his rush lane.

    No one running up field to bend the edge.

    No DTs trying to cut inside the G/C gap.

    Just stay in your lane and keep Griffin in the pocket.

    Pretty simple stufff

    • Anders

      Or do what we have done so far and hope we dont get burned by a fluke play?

      • ACViking

        Right.

        Griffins ability to exploit a hole in the rush lane and scramble — like Vick, Luck, or Wilson, or Randall Cunningham — is flukey

        Ok.

    • McNabbulousness

      good stuff

  • TheRogerPodacter
    • Dragon_Eagle

      No need to worry, Mr. Podacter. No icebergs this time of year, son.

  • Baloophi

    “Captain Smith! Shall I keep an eye out for icebergs?”

  • McNabbulousness

    trent has a possible concussion, that sucks

  • BlindChow

    I like how Ryans always picks up the ball after it hits the ground. You never know.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn. RG3 got hit pretty good on that one.

    • Pennguino

      Hi-LO tackle it looked like

  • OregonDucker

    RG3 rushing = 40; Foles rushing = 40

  • TheRogerPodacter

    bah. c’mon Roc.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    COME ON DEFENSE!

  • McNabbulousness

    most important drive of the game, c’mon D

  • ACViking

    Here is where lack of an Elite Pass Rusher hurts the Eagles . . . against a good QB throwing almost every play

  • Dragon_Eagle

    ruh roh

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i thought that ball hit the ground… wow

    • TheRogerPodacter

      damn. maybe not.

  • BlindChow

    It’s the opener all over again.

  • McNabbulousness

    he pushed off

    • Anders

      Yes, but it will never be called

  • ACViking

    Roc “Dmitri” Carmichael

    • Baloophi

      Ha!

      • ACViking

        That’s what I’m calling Carmichael the rest of the year.

        • ACViking

          Just plain “DC” – Dmitri Carmichael.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    big stop here D~!

  • DamonL86

    Sigh

  • Ben Hert

    What the hell?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Smart timeout. Can’t recall the last time I thought that about the Eagles.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    FUCK

  • Baloophi

    Well, I bet Fox feels pretty good about switching games…

    • TheRogerPodacter

      hah!

  • McNabbulousness

    here we go again

  • Bob Brewer

    Well, here we go…

  • ToastJenkins

    w…t…f…

  • DamonL86

    left them in this game slowed up in 2nd half gonna burn us

  • Corry

    Chip got off the gas waaaay too soon again. Good lord.

  • jshort

    now we need a drive like last week

  • Weapon Y

    If the Skins win, they will be all over ESPN this week. Come on Chip. Please don’t let that happen.

    • McNabbulousness

      thats why ive limited my espn viewing to live sporting events and 30for30s

  • Pennguino

    Put this game away!

  • Baloophi

    4th down attempt looking even worse now…

    • Anders

      Why? We was on the Redskins half of the field, but outside FG range.

      • Baloophi

        You wouldn’t prefer to put them at least 20 yards back?

        • TheRogerPodacter

          that TD would have gone for 99 if they had more room

          • Baloophi

            Very true.

        • Anders

          Would it have mattered consider how they scored on that series?

          • Baloophi

            Well, you start getting into crazy hypotheticals no matter how you look at it. Had we downed a punt at their 1, maybe RG3 would’ve have been dancing around laterally in the end zone, etc.

            I’m just saying that in beautiful, HD hindsight, you’d rather put them back further and maybe eat more clock. Suddenly field position matters a lot in this game.

  • Anders

    Why are talking about us taking the gas off? Look at the 3rd quarter, we didnt fucking execute, nothing about gas. Problem is if you do not execute, speed does not matter.

    We had to many penalties or negative plays in the 2nd half, nothing to do with speed.

    • Andy124

      Nah, we let up. Stopped throwing it.

      • Anders

        Stop throwing has nothing to do with it. We just didnt execute the run plays. Too many holding or sacks.

        Redskins get 2 TDs on 2 fluke plays. I doubt with Wolff and Fletcher in, they would get them

        • Andy124

          Agree to disagree.

  • ACViking

    Anyone wonder if Foles’ brain is a bit scrambled?

    What are his stats since the Fletcher sack?

    • BlindChow

      He hasn’t thrown hardly.

    • SteveH

      Pretty good I’d say.

  • GermanEagle

    Tommy asked for believing. Well, I cannot BELIEVE this.

  • ToastJenkins

    playcalling has gone too conservative

  • TheRogerPodacter

    all right offense. now is the time to earn your paycheck.

  • McNabbulousness

    this offense just can’t fucking go slow

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Foles uses every inch of that 6’6″ body.

  • Baloophi

    Somebody gif that statue of liberty!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    spot of the ball looks good. will it change?

    • BlindChow

      Shanahan challenges plays.

  • McNabbulousness

    get up to the line and run a play

  • ACViking

    Who on this blog supports Replay?

  • Baloophi

    This will be a tough challenge, spot-wise.

  • Andy124

    Will we go for it again? Shotgun run?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i like to think that 99% of the time, we can pick up a few inches on a running play.

      • Baloophi

        To AC’s earlier point, anything out of the gun is tough sledding on 4th and 1

        • Andy124

          Bill O’Brien needs to talk to Kelly about the genius of the QB sneak.

  • McNabbulousness

    hes short

  • SteveH

    If he’s short its by inches.

  • Weapon Y

    Ugh. We’re really going to lose, aren’t we?

    • jshort

      nope

    • McNabbulousness

      come on man, positive mental attitude

      • Weapon Y

        Feels just like the Detroit game last year

  • ACViking

    Re: Eagles’ Offense

    I think Anders captured it: Lack of execution that was there earlier.

    Maybe the Redskins did something different.

    But Anders is right, no question.

  • shah8

    TENSE

  • TheRogerPodacter

    aaaaaaand we’re punting.

  • ToastJenkins

    lots of teachable moments for Chip in this game…hope he learns not to slow the pace so much

    • TheRogerPodacter

      how about not slowing the pace until we have a lead of 30 or less than 10 min left in the 4th qtf

  • GermanEagle

    lolEagles

  • DamonL86

    what an awful 2nd half

  • Dragon_Eagle

    OK Billy. Game is on you now.

  • Pennguino

    What is Shady yapping about?

  • ToastJenkins

    what a clutch punt

  • TheRogerPodacter

    DAAAAAAAAAAAMN Donnie!

  • Corry

    Clutch.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    That was a beauty of a punt.

  • jshort

    time for a safety

  • McNabbulousness

    DONNIE FUCKING JONES!!!! 70 fucking yards, shades of cunningham

  • TheRogerPodacter

    All right defense. time to do your jobs now!

  • jshort

    time for a pic

  • Bob Brewer

    Carmichael getting picked on

  • scratcherk

    Washington will absolutely score here

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Trent Cole back on the field?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Will Smith Defense!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    That was another Goode play!

  • Corry

    C’mon, big stop here defense!

  • McNabbulousness

    rocky music, lets do this

  • ToastJenkins

    come on D!!

  • Andy124

    goode job.

    • McNabbulousness

      i see what you did there

  • TheRogerPodacter

    goddammit. c’mon defense

  • McNabbulousness

    can’t give him that much time

  • Ben Hert

    RG4Q

  • McNabbulousness

    nate allen was late over the top, got lucky on that one

  • Bob Brewer

    So tired of penalties

  • Andy124

    Hooray zebras!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    wow. its not on us!

  • McNabbulousness

    oh shit

  • ACViking

    I get that Boykins really good in the slot.

    But maybe it’d better to have Dmitri Carmichael in the slot and Boykin outside.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Thankfully other teams have dumb players

  • McNabbulousness

    garcon should join the wwf

  • TheRogerPodacter

    all right defense. big stop here.

  • BlindChow

    3rd & 25. I’m still nervous.

    • Baloophi

      Yep.

    • Teehee

      Drag route!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      anything but a penalty for a first down.

    • Andy124

      They’ve still got 2 downs to pick up that 25.

      • Andy124

        Only needed 1.

  • OregonDucker

    God almighty, the Eagles are aging me by the minute.

    • Crus57

      Drink some whiskey, that will age well.

      • OregonDucker

        Thanks, good idea!

    • Baloophi

      Were you to cut me open, you’d find over 240 rings. Sadly, none of them would be Super Bowl rings.

  • SteveH

    That was bizarre by Garcon, he rode that way too long.

  • jshort

    i’m not sayin nothin till after this play

  • ACViking

    3rd & 25 . . .

    Watch for the “Donnie Avery Special” with Moss running shallow after all the other WRs clear out the field

  • jshort

    no

  • Weapon Y

    The defense is going to keep letting teams back into the game as long as they have the “bend, but don’t break” strategy. I’m fine with it this year because the Eagles don’t have many talented defensive players, but they need to change their strategy next season.

  • DamonL86

    Unreal

  • BlindChow

    Yep.

  • ICDogg

    oh poop

  • TheRogerPodacter

    GOD FUCKING DAMMIT WHAT IN THE HELL

  • Corry

    Oh. My. God.

  • Bob Brewer

    Whew, was worried about interference.

  • Teehee

    Shiat.

  • McNabbulousness

    need to put pressure on griffin, not this 3 man bullshit

  • TheRogerPodacter

    woww. i do not like the fact that patrick chung is covering anybody that far downfield.

    • Baloophi

      Agree.

    • BlindChow

      I like that he turned to face the ball.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    really wish we had more CBs instead of 17 Safeties…

  • Ben Hert

    We need a sack.

    • Bob Brewer

      We need a turnover.

  • Baloophi

    Boykin? Mankin!

    • McNabbulousness

      nice

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Boykin!

  • ACViking

    Really, Boykin should be outside at CB

  • TheRogerPodacter

    COX

  • DamonL86

    Are you serious

  • DamonL86

    what a joke

  • Baloophi

    Bade.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    “prior to the pass”?!?!? THERE WAS NO PASS

  • Corry

    this is a goddamn nightmare.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Give that man an Oscar.

  • Andy124

    Step up D.

  • wallacemnw

    This is why being an Eagles fan sucks,

  • Weapon Y

    I’ve never seen Chip be a pushy jerk to his players. Now would be the time. There’s got to be some urgency.

  • ACViking

    Barwin forced fumble in RZ looming huge

  • Pennguino

    That was an OH CRAP he is getting a sack. I have to throw a flag.

  • Corry

    We’re going to lose this damn game.

  • DamonL86

    Terrible

  • Andy124

    I miss Bradley.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    this is why i wish we had a better CB than Roc Carmichael…. sigh.

  • BlindChow

    They need better contain.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    COME ON DEFENSE!

  • ACViking

    This is what playing a good QB looks like

    • ACViking

      Exactly . . . a good QB.

      OMG what the hell was that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • BlindChow

        That’s what beating a good QB looks like.

  • jshort

    hehehehehehehe

  • Baloophi

    MANKIN!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    OMG YES

  • BlindChow

    Yeah, I knew we’d win.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    BWAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • Corry

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOYKIN!

  • Baloophi

    Just scared the poop out of the dog!

    • jshort

      give him a couple treats

    • jshort

      or to many treats in the 1st half

  • McNabbulousness

    HANDS OF THE GODS BOYKIN!!!!!

  • jshort

    its over

  • DamonL86

    my heartache just subsided

  • Dragon_Eagle

    There really is a Santa Claus.

  • McNabbulousness

    game, blouses

  • Bob Brewer

    RGIII with his Michael Vick impression.

    • BlindChow

      Romo.

  • OregonDucker

    Give me another please. My glass is empty!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    How big was that Donnie Jones punt?

    • Ben Hert

      Excellent point.

      • BlindChow

        Excellent punt.

  • Baloophi

    Nice work, Fox!

  • wallacemnw

    Sure glad fox switched to the “better” game.

    • Mitchell

      Seriously. I was so freaking pissed. We still had time in the third when it switched…..

  • McNabbulousness

    shades of favre in the divisional playoff game

  • shah8

    lucky

  • SteveH

    My god, that last drive was brutal…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    this game was 1000 times more stressful than the first match

    • BlindChow

      This is what it would have been like if they’d recovered that onside kick.

    • McNabbulousness

      i believe it is a matter of great expectations

  • Pennguino

    SUUUWEEEEEEET!!!!!!

  • ACViking

    STORYLINE:

    Sacks are great.

    But PRESSURE is more important.

    We just saw why

    • Anders

      Agree, BS holding calls are also terrible

      • ACViking

        Yes!

      • TheRogerPodacter

        way too many penalties on us in that game!

        • Anders

          and the worst was sooooooooooooooooooo BS. Thrown after the play was over and the WR just fell down.

  • Andy124

    Whew!I know some don’t agree, but I’m pretty fixated on the dialing it back in the 3rd issue. I really hope I never see that again.

    • SteveH

      It’s just what we do against Washington, we crush them for 3 quarters and then its a race to the finish line.

    • Anders

      be honest, Im more focused on the terrible execution. We showed last week and against Tampa that tempo shouldnt be a problem if we execute well.

  • shah8

    Fletcher Cox is the player of the game!

    • Crus57

      Honorable mention to Boykin. Some big passes defended, downed a punt at the 2 and game winning INT.

    • jshort

      that’s goode

  • Baloophi

    The thought of handing (footing?) the ball to Henery in OT was frightening…

    • McNabbulousness

      yeah, plus the fact that we know kelly is comfortable with trotting him out for 60yds

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Off topic, but why are the Steelers dressed as the Wimbourne Wasps?

    • Teehee

      Fox thought their uniforms were more interesting than the entire WAS-PHI game.

    • Pennguino

      I thought is was the Hamburgler

  • Baloophi

    Between Mrs. Baloophi’s Auburn Tigers and this game… yowza.

    • Andy124

      WAR EAGLE!

      • Baloophi

        WAR IGGLE!

        • McNabbulousness

          hahahaha nice

    • BlindChow

      That was an awesome game.

      • Baloophi

        It was insanity. I mean after the miracle, there was an entire “Eagles meltdown” drive to make it through…

        • BlindChow

          Auburn-Alabama is going to be a great game this year.

  • Corry

    Every gray I have is because I’m an Eagles fan.

  • jshort

    egg there bus out of town too

  • SeanofDead

    A loss there would’ve ruined Turkey day for me.

  • Westport_Johnny

    Whew- a win.
    Tommy, you starting to blog in Russian?
    Sunglasses, now this. What’s up with that?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      there is some html in russian in there. no idea what it is, my guess is ads or malware or something. Chrome always wants me to translate…

      • Anders

        Most likely an ad.

      • A Roy

        I get that Cyrillic stuff when I’m running XP and trying to see disqus. Never get in on my Windows 8 machine. Could be in disqus…the Russians reading this sh!t!.

  • ACViking

    RE: The Road ahead

    Cardinals and Lions?

    Good to really good QBs on the horizon.

    Should be great tests for this team.

    Looking forward to the challenge

    • Bob Brewer

      They really need the bye.

    • Anders

      Cardinals will be a big test, tho they did allow 14 points to the fucking Jags.

      Lions is scary, but right now losing to a terrible Steelers team

  • OregonDucker

    Eagles now lead the NFCE?

    • McNabbulousness

      yes, and thats fucking nuts

    • BlindChow

      By a half-game, but we haven’t had our bye week yet.

    • ACViking

      Good win today.

      What happened to Offense after mid-3rd Q?
      __________

      Next up after the bye week . . . good QBs on the horizon.

      And AZ — with their defense (h/t Anders) — is for real.

      • Anders

        They just look unhsharp. Got beat upfront in the run game and we had too many negative plays in terms of sacks, negative runs or penalties.

        Also, couldnt seem to buy a first down. Had several drives stopped just short of the first down marker.

        • ACViking

          A —

          Thoughts on *consistently* getting 1 yard on inside runs out of the shotgun.

          • Anders

            No clue. While Foles got some yards on the option, you could really see his limit.

            A more mobile guy would have burned the Skins for over 100 yards on the ground.

            Agree with that.

            Foles is making good decisions.

            But I still think Kelly’d *prefer* someone more mobile . . . and he might even trade the more occasional bad decision than Foles makes for the threat presented by those legs.

            That is why I still think he takes Manziel in the 1st if he is there.

          • ACViking

            After watching Manziel v. Saban in September, I thought that he’d be a great pick.

            Troy Aikman, in the FWIW column, said earlier today on CBS radio that his impression (including after being around the team last week in GB) is the Eagles will make a move to jump up in the draft to get a mobile QB.

            I like Foles a lot. He’s good in this system.

            But I believe — and I think you do as well — that Kelly believes a more mobile, *young* QB would have even greater success.

    Why won’t Laurie let the Eagles wear Kelly Green?

    The Rooney family lets their team look like bumblebees.

      Or is that prisoners

        A comment on where his QB should be playing?

        was thinking that when i first saw that…how fitting Ben in stripes

      Last time we wore Kelly green most of our starters got injured, including Weaver’s career-ending calamity.

      • ACViking

        Before today, last time we wore mid-night green at home we lost 10 straight

    Odd. I thought for sure when the whole GameDay crew picked us we were doomed. Things really are changing around here.

    Any word on what the spat between McCoy and Cooper on the sideline was about?

    • SteveH

      Mccoy didn’t appreciate Cooper taking some of his funyons without asking permission first.

    This will definitely be a good week for a bye. Lets get healthy!

    Eli Manning has more INTs than Foles has TDs. :)
