Go Eagles.


  • Corry

    The Stink from the Linc is wafting over to Central PA. Let’s get a win at home!

  • SteveH

    POST HERE HOW AMPED UP YOU ARE FOR THIS GAME!!!!

  • Corry

    Looked like a hold on Cole right there.

  • Andy124

    Nate Allen closing fast!

    • SteveH

      yeah hard to believe that was nate.

  • bdbd20

    Good call there. FC can’t do that. Gotta know the rules.

  • ToastJenkins

    BS flag. they have to put RG3 on the ground every chance they get

    • ICDogg

      The extra shove at the end is probably what got him the flag

      • bdbd20

        Yeah, in today’s NFL, that’s a penalty every time.

  • BlindChow

    Not looking good for the defense so far…

    • Andy124

      3rd and long. Let’s see how it goes.

  • ToastJenkins

    i love Trent Cole but boy is he lousy at OLB. we need one in the worst way

  • Corry

    C’mon guys, stop them right here.

  • BlindChow

    Barwin is very good at batting passes…

    • Corry

      Must have gotten some tips from Watt.

  • bdbd20

    Great D. Keep RG3 in the pocket. If he beats you as a pocket passer, so be it.

  • Insomniac

    Barwin!!

  • ICDogg

    Several hands up that time

    • Corry

      Yeah, it really seems like a point of emphasis. Not sure if that’s Davis or Azzinaro, but I like it.

  • SteveH

    Nice hold D! Gotta clean up those edge runs.

  • ICDogg

    These are the times that try men’s souls

  • Dragon_Eagle

    OK. Let’s just be sure to get a few first downs and flip the field position.

  • Iskar36

    Oh come on Riley!!! He has to find that ball!

    • Insomniac

      He would have scored if he caught it

      • Iskar36

        Yep. Would have walked in.

  • SteveH

    WHAT?!!?!?! HOW IS THAT NOT PI!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!

    • Dragon_Eagle

      He’s not wearing a Patriots uniform.

  • Iskar36

    Great throw between the safety and the corner.

    • Corry

      Love that Foles trusts his receivers to come up with those passes.

  • ToastJenkins

    Riley should have had a flag but still has to catch that ball

  • ACViking

    Riley Cooper is NOT good at tracking the ball.

    • BlindChow

      He’s actually done really well until that play.

    • Iskar36

      Whoa… that was a bad play by him there, but he has been great otherwise. What other balls has he not tracked well?

  • ToastJenkins

    they are obviously selling out to stop McCoy. Nick is going to have to throw them out of it

  • Corry

    That was an AWFUL attempt at a block there.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Beautiful!

  • ICDogg

    well done Boykin

  • Iskar36

    I absolutely love Boykin.

  • Insomniac

    Great effort and play by Boykin

  • Corry

    Boykin, Punt coverage MVP. He’s almost always down there first.

    • TommyLawlor

      Really has been great at that.

  • shah8

    Man, my attention is split today, what with the tornados today! Like the pass to desean.

    • Ben Hert

      Are you in the Chicago area? Its getting pretty nasty where I’m at

      • shah8

        atl

        • shah8

          I’m a weather geek, among other things.

          • Ben Hert

            Sitting in the office with walnut sized hail coming down outside. Getting a bit dicey…

          • TheRogerPodacter

            do what you can to stay safe today!

  • jshort

    Coleman

  • TheRogerPodacter

    uh oh. chung is banged up again

  • Insomniac

    Ugh another injury

    • TheRogerPodacter

      Chung has been hurt more or less all year!

      • Insomniac

        but but Kurt Coleman!!

        • TheRogerPodacter

          heh. i’m not sure there is a big drop off in talent there…

          • Iskar36

            The Eagles were extremely high on Patrick Chung in the offseason, but he certainly has not lived up to their hype of him.

        • jshort

          should be hungry

  • ICDogg
    • Iskar36

      Haha. Love it!

  • ToastJenkins

    Logan with a strong game so far

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I guess holding won’t be called this game.

  • Andy124

    Casey in the game? Why?

  • Ben Hert

    Again with the holding…

  • SeanofDead

    Damn!

  • Insomniac

    Blown the hell up.

  • ICDogg

    BG!

  • Corry

    Brandon Graham with a big stop!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    holy shit

  • Iskar36

    Wow.

  • Andy124

    Quick, trade him now while his value is up!

  • BlindChow

    That was goode.

    • Iskar36

      Damn, beat me too it.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    GOOOOOOOOODE

  • Insomniac

    Najee B Goode

  • Iskar36

    That was Goode. Very very Goode

  • Andy124

    Oh my Goode!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    crowd is really getting into it

  • Dragon_Eagle

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

  • ToastJenkins

    wow look at Cox run down that screen. dude is an athlete

    • TommyLawlor

      Love watching him move in space.

  • Corry

    A man the size of Fletcher Cox should not be able to move like that. Wow.

  • OregonDucker

    Wow Defense!

  • Andy124

    Goodenight Griffen.

  • Pennguino

    Goode may be playing himself into a starters role

    • Baloophi

      Goode may be greate.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        whats bettere than goode? greate.

    • ToastJenkins

      great play on the blitz, both in timing and finishing the tackle. be nice to have another competent ILB

    • TommyLawlor

      He has been impressive.

  • bridgecoach

    Eagles d playing with a lot of heart and fire right now. Love to see this.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Feels like years since we’ve been able to say that. Love what I’m seeing.

  • Iskar36

    Wow. Crazy stat from Les:

    Les Bowen
    ‏@LesBowen

    That’s the hazard of “small ball.” Redskins ran 10 plays there, ended up punting from their 31.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      granted, they started within the 5

  • Corry

    C’mon, let’s get some points.

  • Andy124

    Oh come on.

  • SteveH

    lol!! Wilson faking!

  • Corry

    Josh Wilson’s feelings are hurt.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i think i am happier with Ertz after 3/4 of a season than LJ Smith’s entire career

  • Andy124

    Best solution I can think of is, out for series.

  • ICDogg

    heh

  • TheRogerPodacter

    that was a beautiful throw!

  • Andy124

    What.
    A.
    Throw.

    • Iskar36

      I’m loving what I am seeing from Foles so far today.

  • BlindChow

    Finally with the wheel route!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Foles is on today. :)

  • Baloophi

    Beautiful wheel pass.

  • SeanofDead

    Ha, redskins stall and Foles still finds the mismatch!

  • BlindChow

    Three passes in a row, let’s go!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice throw away foles. glad to see the quick decision to get rid of it.

  • Pennguino

    Run it in. Stop passing

  • ICDogg

    Ground Foles!

  • BlindChow

    Let’s see Manning do THAT!

  • Insomniac

    Foles with the fake

  • TheRogerPodacter

    YES!!!! i was just thinking to myself i’d love to see Foles keep one

  • jshort

    Foles…another great run

  • Andy124

    #functionalmobility

  • SteveH

    FOLES ERA!!!!!

  • Corry

    YES! Had everyone fooled there I think.

  • Iskar36

    Foles going Beast Mode.

  • Baloophi

    Nick “Ironhead” Foles!

    Someone just won a nice prop-bet somewhere…

  • OregonDucker

    That was a thing of beauty!

  • SeanofDead

    That was flipped awesome!

  • Pennguino

    Get that 6’6″ body across that goal line

  • OregonDucker

    He belongs in Canton.

    • SeanofDead

      He is Cantonese.

    • Flyin

      He is.

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Nick “Shady” Foles !

  • SteveH

    Foles playing like he wants this starting job.

  • Corry

    I just really want to bury the ‘Skins today.

  • Ben Hert

    This team is much more likeable than they were last year. Really enjoy watching these guys.

  • OregonDucker

    GEagle must be going out of his mind watching this game up close and personal.

    • Baloophi

      If he cheers like he posts he’ll be hoarse before the half. Love it.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        amazing.

  • Baloophi

    Foles was fleet of upper-body on that run.

  • bridgecoach

    What was Ray Diddy saying about McCoy as a receiver during pregame?

  • Crus57

    Love watching Shady’s eyes checking out how close his pursuer is on the big screen.

    • Pennguino

      Saw that too. Very kewl

  • ACViking

    Nick Foles looks comfortable today in a way I’ve not seen before.

    Just watching how he’s moving around makes me think he’s seeing the game moving *very slowly*.

    • Baloophi

      Happy Sunday, AC!

  • jshort

    Now a D td

  • SeanofDead

    Challenge

    • BlindChow

      There will be no challenges.

  • Insomniac

    Awful tackling right there

  • TheRogerPodacter

    c’mon D. gotta FINISH those tackles.

  • Andy124

    Challenge?

  • jshort

    he was out

  • Iskar36

    Come on Chip!

  • Corry

    WTF SHURMUR? PAY ATTENTION!

    • BlindChow

      EVERYTHING’S FINE! STOP ASKING QUESTIONS!!!

      • Corry

        I’m Ok now.

  • Andy124

    Must not have had the game feed in the booth.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    is it really worth challenging that play?

  • ToastJenkins

    another blown obvious challenge…wtf is Shurmur doing?

  • ACViking

    Baloophi —

    The burden’s on you

  • Pennguino

    not again

  • Baloophi

    Shurmur was watching re-runs of Three’s Company up there….

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Understandable. Janet or Chrissy?

      • Baloophi

        or… Mr. Roper?

        • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

          Why have to choose? – Make it a four-some!

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      Nah, he’s watching AZ vs JAC on the big screen!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    missed challenge is now a moot point

  • Pennguino

    D is balling

  • Andy124

    Whew, didn’t hurt us.

  • SeanofDead

    My man crush on Butch continues.

  • ACViking

    Roc “Deion” Carmichael

    • Baloophi

      Roc “Darrell Green” Carmichael.

      • Andy124

        Roc “Eric Allen” Carmichael.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    R
    G
    3
    and out

  • SteveH

    If they need someone to let them know when to challenge I’ll do it, I can’t be worse than Shurmer.

  • Iskar36

    The Eagles clearly need to rethink their challenge strategy.

    • BlindChow

      Yeah, I really hope they don’t lose a game because of it. Especially since they should have known something was wrong after last week.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      What strategy?

    • Pennguino

      …and we have HOME FIELD footage!

  • BlindChow

    I love having a scoring cushion. Deflates the pressure.

    • Baloophi

      There’s probably a dirty joke to be made here…

      • Pennguino

        hahaha

    • Pennguino

      I am not comfortable until we are three scores up

  • SteveH

    Nick Elway to lead another scoring drive here.

  • ACViking

    Re: Chip on Challenges

    I’m pleased to say that Kelly agrees with me that Replay is an impediment

    • Crus57

      Maybe he thinks that challenges increase the opponents time of possession unnecessarily?

      • ACViking

        You must be right

  • Iskar36

    Risky play there by DeSean. On the plus side, he saved us several yards, but on the negative side, definitely very risky play.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Michael who?

  • Iskar36

    Absolutely love it!

  • SteveH

    Nick Vick!

  • jshort

    Merrill calling him tricky nicky

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      Say it ain’t so, Merrill – don’t go all John Sterling on us now!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    AHAHAHA i love it

  • Insomniac

    I don’t know if Foles or Glennon look more awkward when they scramble.

    • BlindChow

      Glennon uses a John Cleese silly walk when he scrambles.

      • Baloophi

        For our younger fans…

  • Corry

    2 hands Avant.. You have 2 hands.

  • ACViking

    That’s on Avant for being slow

    • TommyLawlor

      Don’t pick on old people.

      • Andy124

        Why not? They’re easy targets.

        • Pennguino

          You don’t have to lead them as far…

      • ACViking

        Age is a relative concept.

        • ICDogg

          And I have a lot of old relatives

  • Baloophi

    That’s twice now that McCoy’s towel has stopped him…

    • TommyLawlor

      Never knew you were anti-towel.

      Exposed.

      • Baloophi

        “Big Hair Dryer” signs my paychecks…

  • SteveH

    Foles ate his wheaties this morning. Playing like a champion.

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      Shit, I think they ALL ate their Wheaties this AM – Celek gets his motor running!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    WOWWWWWWW

  • ICDogg

    Holy Poop

  • Iskar36

    Where did Celek pickup the NOS?

  • Andy124

    WOW. That is the fastest Brent has ever run!!!

  • SteveH

    HOLY WHEELS CELEK!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    whomever that OL was that got the guy pursuing from being at the start of the play absolutely made this happen

  • Insomniac

    DAMN. I picked up the wrong Eagles TE to start this week.

    • Baloophi

      Or…

  • Baloophi

    Shurmur is challenging our own plays???

  • OregonDucker

    Shady grabbing the Skins banner prior to the game set the stage. Eagles will not take any sh*t.

  • Corry

    I never knew Celek was that fast.

    • jshort

      was thinking same thing

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      Most surprising ?
      1) That Celek run.
      2) Foles TD run.
      3) That Nate Allen beeline tackle.

      • wallacemnw

        No. 3

        • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

          Yea, I’d personally go with that one as well.

  • Ben Hert

    Oh my god that blocking is just ridiculous.

  • shah8

    Heh, looks like this game is already over!

  • Pennguino

    bawahahaha… Celek. Wait! Is my hat on right. Loved the Helmet check in mid stride

    • Iskar36

      I noticed that too. That’s right when he turn on the jets… hmmm… makes you wonder (see my previous comment)

  • SteveH

    Awww Celek so close to a TD, what a shame.

  • Baloophi

    If it’s overturned, please leave all “roll out” passes on the sideline…

    • Corry

      From that distance, I really hope they run it 3 straight times.

      • Andy124

        I hope they run it once and don’t have to run it again.

        • Corry

          You should hope for more stuff.

          • Andy124

            I do. Believe me, I do.

  • ACViking

    Foles set up that screen really well.

    And that Sky View is a horrible angle . . . how the hell can you tell is someone’s knee is down?

    Because it looks bent?

    Who are these people?

  • T_S_O_P

    Love that Celek catches the screen, then adjusts his helmet for some power running, before power running. :-)

  • TheRogerPodacter

    SHADY!

  • ICDogg

    Walked it right in

    • TheRogerPodacter

      wow. the overhead view makes it look even better. there was no one within 2 yards of him.

  • Corry

    Wow, Shady would have scored even if it was 2 hand touch.

  • ACViking

    I really don’t like replay. WASTE OF TIME

    • Baloophi

      Pat Shurmur has hijacked AC’s account!

    • Insomniac

      One replay, one TD drive.

    • Iskar36

      Replay is certainly imperfect, but what I hate even more is for refs to decide the game incorrectly. At least replay allows them to call the ref closer to accurate.

  • SteveH

    Wow, that hole.

    • BlindChow

      That’s what HE said!

      • SteveH

        Jenna Jameson never had a hole that wide.

        • TheRogerPodacter

          and she’s used to a great deal of penetration.

  • Pennguino

    first Shady rushing TD in like 6 games. AWESOME

  • ToastJenkins

    wow…walks in untouched. great block by Mathis

  • ACViking

    Baloophi . . . you’re warming up.

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Reality should be setting in for Redskins fans now – they suck as bad as the G-men this year.

  • ICDogg

    Weather delay in Chicago. Yeesh

    • Ben Hert

      Can confirm the world is ending here.

  • ACViking

    QUESTION on the Celek Screen . . .

    Was that a double screen w/ Foles having the option of throwing right or left?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    excellent open field tackle for barwin

    • BlindChow

      Conrad Berwin was an excellent pickup.

    • Iskar36

      Yep. And I like that he saw the play developing before it happened.

  • Corry

    It looks like the whole team is just feeling it today.

    • SteveH

      I had a feeling leading up to this one that we were gonna go off…

  • Allen3000

    Wow, we are just bullying them! Gotta love the effort and execution so far.

  • jshort

    82 on skins has metal knee brace sticking out

    • TheRogerPodacter

      curious – are they not allowed to be metal? or just not allowed to stick out?

      • jshort

        stick out

        • TheRogerPodacter

          cool. thanks for the info, man.

  • ICDogg

    Both PHI scoring drives less than 2 min, per usual

    • OregonDucker

      Yeah, there goes the time of possession stat!

  • ACViking

    It has to be said . . .

    “Fly Folesy Fly!”

  • ICDogg

    Vinny sighting

  • Insomniac

    VC!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    anyone else notice nate allen there to clean up that play after roc let his guy go? (first down catch by garcon)

  • ICDogg

    Damn, he runs like a tank

  • SeanofDead

    Hat off to Morris, dude is a beast.

  • Ben Hert

    Like that hit by Allen.

  • Andy124

    Question:
    Manning set the record this year starting the season with 20 tis before throwing his first int. Can we count Nick’s rushing tds towards that total?

    • Crus57

      Throwing yourself into the endzone doesn’t count, sadly.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    griffin looks like he is going to blow out his knee sliding

  • ACViking

    I don’t understand why defensive players push the pile forward . . .

    How ’bout “Do No Harm”

  • ICDogg

    Barwin beasting

  • Andy124

    Barwin and Logan doing stuff.

  • Insomniac

    Damn Bennie

    • TheRogerPodacter

      my words exactly

  • SeanofDead

    Ya, Soap doesn’t make that play.

  • ACViking

    When did Logan move to MLB?

  • ICDogg

    RGIII looked like he twisted his leg going out of bounds

  • TheRogerPodacter

    so griffin heads towards the sidelines then cuts back upfield again. thats exactly why QBs running are so hard to protect. “heading out of bounds” isn’t always so.

  • Iskar36

    Time for the defense to put on the clamps and stop this drive.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    LETS GO DEFENSE!

  • DamonL86

    Tackling going downhill

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn. that one wasn’t so goode. : (

  • Corry

    Najeh Bad tackling form there.

  • ACViking

    Baloophi . . .

    I’m sorry by Goode has some tackling issues

    • Pennguino

      yep missed that one

    • Insomniac

      Needs to wrap up and not arm tackle

    • jshort

      and coverage

    • Baloophi

      If Goode hadn’t blown those tackles, we wouldn’t have just intercepted the ball. So…

      • Baloophi

        It’s something only an industrial engineering major would think of…

  • Iskar36

    Good tackle there by Curry. May have saved a TD. Definitely saved a few yards.

  • Iskar36

    Hell yea!!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    DEFENSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  • DamonL86

    thats a play

  • SteveH

    EAGLES DDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Andy124

    DEFENSE!!!!!!

  • SeanofDead

    Wooooooooooo!
    Cheese Steak Defense FTW!

  • Corry

    Connor Barwin absolutely decked RGIII.

  • jshort

    man there tough inside the ten

  • TheRogerPodacter

    illegal forward pass or advancing a fumble?

    • ICDogg

      the former

  • ICDogg

    Bwahahaha

  • Iskar36

    Barwin is playing excellent right now.

    • Corry

      That’s the type of hit you dream of as a defensive player I think. He just decked RGIII. More please.

      • Pennguino

        Then he just sat on him

  • Baloophi

    BarWIN.

    • Ben Hert

      #BarWINNING

      • Baloophi

        better…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    oh shit. someone stomped on RG3’s head. not sure who it was, and it was clearly unintentional, but damn.

    • Crus57

      He got kicked in the forehead by his own guy, too.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Some jackass just knocked on the door. What happened???

    • SteveH

      GOOD THINGS!!

      • Ben Hert

        GOODE* THINGS

    • Corry

      Barwin decked RGIII, ball popped up, Cox intecepted.

      Btw, it’s justifiable homicided to kill that moron.

      • Dragon_Eagle

        I know that. I’ll bury the body after the game, though.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      barwin beats the RB in pass pro, hits RG3 as he throws, ball pops almost straight up, Cox with the interception. runs for a bit, then forward pass to someone (nate allen?) who runs for a bit.
      penalty called on the illegal forward pass. still eagles football.

    • BlindChow

      No “Do Not Disturb” sign? What kind of Eagles fan are you?!

  • Insomniac

    Now if only we had someone on the opposite side of Barwin

  • Ben Hert

    This team is so much fun. I haven’t enjoyed football this much in a long time.

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    RGIII – The new “coach killer”

  • OregonDucker

    GEagle’s having a heart attack! Get the paddles stat!

  • ICDogg

    So I guess we’re starting from about the 5

  • SeanofDead

    Good initial reaction by Cox, but never ever do that again. Catch and fall next time big guy.

  • Iskar36

    Late hit on Foles?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    SACK + FF for Barwin = no INT for Cox.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    fuck shady! c’mon man!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      here i thought he was just yelling at merriweather to let go of his ankle…

  • Iskar36

    Come on McCoy. I know he is amped up for this game, but gotta play under control.

  • ICDogg

    wtf

  • Baloophi

    Has anyone considered the possibility that the ref is actually Jerry Jones in stripes?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    COOP!!!!!

  • Iskar36

    Uh oh. Foles was shaking his arm. Did he get hurt?

    • Crus57

      He did that after the play before, too.

    • Pennguino

      He has been doing that since the holding call

  • ICDogg

    COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP

  • SteveH

    FOLES LETTIN IT RIP!

  • ToastJenkins

    damn…stupid penalty. Great to see Nick convert it anyway

  • SeanofDead

    Wow, that was a ridunkulous call. Dopey ref…. Shady was congratulating him with tackle.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i think he got away with some OPI there

  • Corry

    Foles is just playing out of his mind right now!

  • BlindChow

    They’re playing with so much confidence.

  • Baloophi

    Taunting. Eagles offense.

  • ACViking

    I hated Michael Irvin because the Eagles never had any WR who pushed off and got away with it.

    Now they do. Finally

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn, bryce.

  • DamonL86

    brown likes to tackle himself

  • Andy124

    Well. This is fun.

  • ICDogg

    Nice, Bryce

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Clearly having Kelly’s offense on tape was a major advantage for Shanahan coming into this game.

  • Insomniac

    Oh god, Bryce looking like Maclin

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn, i think coop slowed down on that one (hold?)

  • Baloophi

    Foles with the overthrow. Cut him.

    • Andy124

      Arm’s too strong.

      • Baloophi

        Too many bites of Wheaties…

  • Crus57

    Love Shady coming back to block for DJax on that last play.

  • Ben Hert

    Obligatory “Chip Kelly’s offense can’t work in the NFL” post.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Ouch.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    oh. damn foles. ouch!

  • ICDogg

    Nasty hit

  • Baloophi

    London calling.

  • Corry

    That has to be illegal for London Fletcher to be out there on a hover round.

  • Andy124

    OK, so what is the helmet to helmet rule again?

  • Iskar36

    Shit!

  • DamonL86

    Noooooooo

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Uh oh.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    shit. shady bad hammy.

  • Corry

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Ben Hert

    Looks like 92 on the Redskins belly button is leaking.

  • SteveH

    ahhhhh damn

  • ICDogg

    hope it’s just a cramp

  • ACViking

    That sack had concussion written on it.

    watch Foles closely

    • ICDogg

      was thinking the same

      • Andy124

        Seriously. And why wasn’t that a penalty. I don’t think it was dirty or anything, but by the book, was that not a blow to the head or neck area?

        • ICDogg

          there was some helmet-to-helmet there but I don’t know if that was the first contact

    • OregonDucker

      Yeah, I’m worried.

    • Corry

      yeah, i’m a bit concerned.

    • shah8

      My feed is so terrible, I’m missing a lot of plays…Didn’t see it, was it a long sack or a short one?

      • Crus57

        Relatively short, delayed blitz by Lond Fletcher

        • shah8

          gotcha. London Fletcher? Took out the last QB, if I remember right, Ponder, last week.

          • BlindChow

            Ponder got hurt diving into the end zone on a QB scramble. Landed on his arm.

          • shah8

            because he got *smushed*, that was a really hard hit to out of bounds.

  • Andy124

    Uh oh. Those smoothies are killing us.

  • Insomniac

    PLEASE JUST BE A CRAMP

  • TheRogerPodacter

    he’s walking off, didn’t see a limp. hopefully just a cramp?

  • SteveH

    Hopefully just a few weeks out for mccoy. What a run by the way.

    • Ben Hert

      Back in time for the playoff run.

  • shah8

    damn.

  • SteveH

    Next man up, lets go BB.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      is Polk active today too?

      • Corry

        Yes. He was in on a special teams tackle to open the game.

    • Iskar36

      With BB running the ball, can we just put blockers on the outside and just forget about blocking up the middle?

      • TheRogerPodacter

        sounds like we want that formation where the OTs are out wide with the WRs

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Dodged a bullet there, hopefully

  • SeanofDead

    Hmmmm, i wanna go for it

  • SteveH

    Good decision by foles just to take the tackle and not force anything.

  • Andy124

    Obviously, we need a faster qb.

    • Corry

      Hopefully we don’t have a concussed QB.

  • bdbd20

    Put Shady in sweats. No need to risk further injury. Give him two weeks to heal.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    looks like mccoy going into the locker room. might as well get a head start before halftime

  • jshort

    anyone still want to trade Foles to san fran even up

    • BlindChow

      Let’s see if he’s got another concussion first…

  • SteveH

    at least its the bye week coming up, if there was ever a time to have a 3 week injury..

  • TheRogerPodacter

    NO WAY!

  • jshort

    hehehe

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn. he’s definitely down

  • ICDogg

    hmmm

  • Iskar36

    Shurmur is going to challenge

  • TheRogerPodacter

    also, Chung got trucked.

  • SeanofDead

    He was down.

  • ACViking

    That’s exactly why Replay is unnecessary

    • Iskar36

      Lol. Replay should be used just to benefit the Eagles

      • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

        Home-field advantage, right?

    • SteveH

      we’d come out way ahead if replay didn’t exist lol.

    • ICDogg

      sanctioned revisionism!

  • bdbd20

    Clearly down. I’d love to see a fumble, but gotta make the right call.

  • Baloophi

    AC –

    Found the Celek screen play against the Raiders (which got nothing). Scroll about 3/4 of the way down the page…

    http://www.bleedinggreennation.com/2013/11/7/5076458/philadelphia-eagles-how-do-you-stop-chip-kelly-offense

    • TheRogerPodacter

      isnt that the game where they called it twice – one went nowhere, other went for a lot?

      • Baloophi

        Yeah… like ten minutes later in the quarter I think. Just scroll down on that link…

  • Dragon_Eagle

    No problem. Skins have enough time to put together a nice clock chewing drive that ends in zero points.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    weird that with that many people up on the LOS, we didn’t have more people up there as well

  • Crus57

    Either DeMeco decided to jump backwards out of the way of Morris on that long run, or holding is still an optional call.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    “there’s a lot of trashtalking going on down on the field” as DJax taps the skin’s guy’s helmet….

    • Baloophi

      Just saying…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    all right defense. get us the ball back before halftime!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I…..hate….Troy…..Aikman.

  • ACViking

    B —

    Thanks for the Raiders play

    • Baloophi

      Just meta-reporting ChipWagoneer’s work at BleedingGreen…

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Interesting how these new supposedly superstar dual-threat guys – RGII and Kaep – are becoming more run-only threats. And, sooner or later, they’re going to take a major hit that will knock them out.

  • Andy124

    back to back run stuffs. good job. hold ‘em on 3rd and long here.

  • Baloophi

    Trent Cole!

  • Corry

    OH COME ON! you can’t call roughing! Oh thank god.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      nope! : )

    • TheRogerPodacter

      though i was worried about going in at the QB low

      • Corry

        That’s exactly what I thought it was going to be.

        • Andy124

          ditto.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    wonder what this penalty is…

  • Andy124

    Who borrowed Cole’s jersey?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    T. Cole!!!

  • Baloophi

    Trent on Trent crime?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    41 seconds? no problem.

    • Andy124

      Hopefully we don’t leave too much time on the clock.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      That would be a long drive for the Eagles.

  • Baloophi

    Bryce’s affinity for the sidelines is suddenly a bonus…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    oh geez. that one scared me.

  • Andy124

    Blame Avant for being slow on that one too.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      you think so? i didn’t get a good look at his route

      • Andy124

        Wasn’t entirely serious.

        • TheRogerPodacter

          i really didn’t see it so it was an honest question. lol

    • Baloophi

      Avant him to run faster.

      Eh.

    • Corry

      Yeah…he’s gotten very old all of a sudden.

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Avant needs some “Celek-speed”

  • Iskar36

    I’m still not used to this… 17 seconds left in the half and we are calling our FIRST timeout.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    OK. Nothing stupid, please.

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      Don’t worry, he’s in KC now.

      • Crus57

        I think you mean New York

      • Dragon_Eagle

        Like Iskar below. Its completely new territory. Not sure how to handle it.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    can’t blame Chip for not going for it on 3rd and 15

  • Corry

    Dammit, I really wanted a score there.

  • ACViking

    Baloophi . . . you’re red hot now

  • Pennguino

    Good punt to pin against the sideline

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice punt, donnie.

  • SteveH

    Great half outside of the mccoy injury.

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    “Not a yardage board, just a score board.”
    We need a nice graphic with that quote on it from you Photoshop experts

  • Iskar36

    Odd end to the half… Not sure why you call a timeout with 17 seconds left in the half simply to hand it off on 3rd and 15 and give Washington a chance to return a punt or potentially run a play.

  • McNabbulousness

    any word on shady’s status

    • Corry

      Just a generic “Hamstring injury”

    • BlindChow

      Single

      • McNabbulousness

        time to make my move

        • BlindChow

          Stay away from his party bus.

          • McNabbulousness

            and apparently his hamstring

  • jshort

    Egg bowl
