PHI 17, ARZ 7 – 2nd Half

Posted: December 1st, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 569 Comments »

Good start. The Eagles were a bit sloppy at times, but mostly played well. The Cards were also sloppy at times.

Big difference, aside from turnovers, seems to be the Eagles get chunk plays and the Cards having to drive the field. The one TD for them came when an intermediate play turned into a long TD. Thanks for nothing, Mr Chung.

Eagles get the ball to open the 2nd half. Let’s get some points and make the Cards one-dimensional.

Go Eagles !


  • BlindChow

    Ugh, I hope they don’t get conservative. On offense OR defense…

    • Eric Carranza

      Flashbacks to both redskins games -.-

    • Corry

      Chip should probably just burn that whole section of his playbook.

    • Andy124

      Seriously, if they go 75% run starting in the 3rd I will have to send Chip and unpleasant letter.

  • ACViking

    If Eagles score 7 off KO — or whenever Eagles get up by 17 — I think we *Should* see lots more of Fitzgerald.

    If we don’t, then Bill Davis is a master DC.

  • OregonDucker

    We get the kickoff. Can’t wait to see our offense and its strategy – 2nd half lead.

  • Eric Carranza

    Smart to kneel after that bounce

  • scratcherk

    brad smith on returns. the only place he should be

  • scratcherk

    first down before slide please.

  • scratcherk

    nice juke foles.

    • Crus57

      When Foles falls forwards, there’s a lot of him to fall.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Wounded Giraffe – I really can’t think of a more apt description.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    welp. that was an ugly pass from Foles. can’t say i’ve said that too many times, but there it is

    • Crus57

      I think he thought he had more pressure on him than there actually was.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. you gotta have that internal clock that tells you to get rid of the ball. but he’s still gotta make a better pass

  • TheRogerPodacter

    and a timeout early in the quarter because the clock got down too low? what is going on!??! lol

    • SteveH

      The spectre of andy reid.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    COOP!

  • Andy124

    Go ahead. Blitz. Nick dares you.

  • Andy124

    That’s the kind of runs I want to see with Bryce.

    • Corry

      Yes. More please.

  • ACViking

    Run him out of the “I”

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i want more of this. he had like 8 yards to run just to get back to the LOS

  • Crus57

    Ohhhh Djax :(

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Ouch

  • TheRogerPodacter

    OUCH. they read the shit out of that play

  • scratcherk

    sheldown brown- reggie bush flashbacks.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Nice throw.

  • GEAGLE

    Kelce just owned them on the presnap checks so FOles could have time to hit Coop..picked up that blitz beautifully..big block by Bryce..

    ERTTTTTTZZZYYY!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn. Celek and Ertz are having huge games

    • GEAGLE

      Coop, and the TEs was how you attack this sweet in the gut king hippo defense

  • TheRogerPodacter

    that looked like a broken screen play

  • SteveH

    great throw to Ertz there.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    hah! who runs it on 3rd and 10? we do.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      had the bubble screen behind Lane as a good option as well

  • Crus57

    Foles is on FIRE

    • GEAGLE

      Just another day at the office bro,.get used to it

  • Andy124

    19

  • BlindChow

    NINETEEN!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    HAHAHHAHA amazing

  • Eric Carranza

    Looks like tommy was wrong 2tds for ertz

  • Corry

    BEAUTIFUL!

  • GEAGLE

    ERTZZZZZZZYYYY!!!

    hashtag RAINMAKER!!!

  • jshort

    Cards on their heels

  • ToastJenkins

    Foles just continues to impress…i love it

  • OregonDucker

    Kill them ALL Foles!!!

    • GEAGLE

      Shedding tears of Joy……
      ..
      FOles should get a tear tattooed under his left eye like the gangster he is..in memory of MURDERING ANOTHER top ranked defense with top CB

  • T_S_O_P

    Boo yaka sha

  • SteveH

    Just gonna leave this here.

    • Corry

      Cuz it’s so pretty.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    AZ is just sitting back and letting Foles beat them. and thats exactly what he’s doing

  • scratcherk

    where’s mikey miss crying right now?

  • shah8

    Still not where my expectations are for an NFL starter, but that was one of the better series I’ve seen from Foles. Doing what he does well, with those throws to the TE in the middle of the field…

    • SteveH

      Seriously dude, give it up…

      • shah8

        Not stumping for anything. Just calling like I see it.

        • SteveH

          smh, try and enjoy it while Foles breaks records if you can.

          • Eric Carranza

            That was number 19, 1 from tying Peyton right?

          • Andy124

            correct.

        • GEAGLE

          With all do respect, from the bottom of my heart, you sir are a fuckin idiot!!!!
          ..
          Sorry Tom, but enough is enough

    • jshort

      Wow , your tough

      • BlindChow

        I mean, I guess Foles is OKAY, but he’s no Joe Webb.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i guess a backhanded compliment is still a compliment

    • Andy124

      Somebody get me an Andy Dufresne, “How can you be so obtuse?” gif.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    OK. so we triple cover Fitz the rest of the game. Anything else?

    • T_S_O_P

      Just tackle him rather than throw a body at him.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        maybe we will put an extra CB in there and take a S out of the game….

  • OregonDucker

    Play press man against us and we kill you. Play zone and we kill you. Get life insurance suckers.

    • GEAGLE

      COLLEGE OFFENSE wit a back up QB….ain’t that some shit?

  • BlindChow

    Uh oh, now we just have to hope Kelly doesn’t let off the gas…

  • jshort

    what a lucky guy Foles is

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Air Beard

  • nicolajNN

    Tommy must be a little disappointed, no pressure on Foles. Our OL is dominating

  • jshort

    Hope the cowgirls are watching

    • Crus57

      I hope not, I’d rather they got a nasty surprise.

      • jshort

        what can they do….since he banged his head he’s unstoppable

        • TheRogerPodacter

          its like that movie Rookie of the Year, but with football

      • Dragon_Eagle

        Yup. Being unprepared in December is one of their hallmarks. Probably watching desperate housewives reruns today.

    • SteveH

      They’re probably saying we’re the best defense on the planet, look what we did to him!

  • ACViking

    ALERT . . .

    Foles 1 TD pass away from getting his jersey sent to Canton again for consecutive TD passes w/out an INT to start the season.

    (Sorry of this has been posted)

  • Scott

    Mike Missanelli ‏@MikeMiss97526m
    Have to say that it IS pretty amazing that Foles doesnt throw interceptions…

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i’m not entirely sure what that means…

    • scratcherk

      he’s an idiot.

  • jshort

    cards slowing it down

    • TheRogerPodacter

      theyre trying to keep with their game plan, i guess.

  • Crus57

    Damn Logan is a beast.

  • SteveH

    Cards OL can’t pass block for shit but they can blow people off the ball in the run game.

  • scratcherk

    come on chung

  • ToastJenkins

    Chung is horrible…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    GODDAMMIT CHUNG

  • Andy124

    Chung’d.

  • GEAGLE

    Chung is horrible,.where is wolff

    • Crus57

      Injured

    • TheRogerPodacter

      bring in Coleman

  • Corry

    I’m just going to start calling him FacePalm Chung.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Triple coverage. Good call.

  • scratcherk

    chung – friendly fire again.

  • Spooonius

    Chung almost took out williams there

  • SteveH

    Chung the new Nate Allen.

    • BlindChow

      OMG It’s like Freaky Friday!

  • ToastJenkins

    even Williams is giving Chung shit lol

  • TheRogerPodacter

    looks like Chung put a shoulder into Cary there…

  • Andy124

    Chung almost took out sconces there and sconces let him know about it.

  • Eric Carranza

    Williams getting after Chung there for hitting him

  • SteveH

    lol, Chung the most dangerous man on the Cardinals offense.

  • ACViking

    Chung is going to kill another Eagle . . . like Coles 2 weeks ago

  • TrentColeHamels

    It’s really nice to see contributions from each of our first 3 picks. Johnson, Ertz, and Logan all playing and playing well, when was the last season that’s happened?

    • GvilleEagleFan

      #InHowieWeTrust

  • GEAGLE

    Chung is like the dude in the green mile…he swallowed all of Nates SUCKYNESS so Nate could go on to play well

    • Andy124

      Nice John.

    • SteveH

      Can we send Chung to the chair?

      • GEAGLE

        LOL

      • BlindChow

        Is there an electric bench?

  • jshort

    AC’s right

  • TheRogerPodacter

    COME ON DEFENSE!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    are they really calling this on Cary??!??!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      ok, good. i guess…. lol

  • GEAGLE

    Mr. DECEMBER CARY FUCKIN WILLIAMS….dude got another SB ring on his brain

    • GvilleEagleFan

      Slow your roll GEAGLE, let’s not get too hasty and jinx them… but I share your optimism

      • GEAGLE

        Woah…I’m not talking SB…but I guarentee you that if you ask Cary, in his brain! he is playing for a SB right now!!
        .
        And THATS how you should want ever EAGLE to think in december

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Shouldv’e been offensive PI

  • jshort

    turnover time

  • Andy124

    Ced wasting little time trying to make amends.

  • SeanofDead

    Ha! Anyone else see Cole jamming up Fitzgerald on the inside.

  • Spooonius

    Fitzgerald stutter stepPed on that one for about an hour

  • GvilleEagleFan

    This team looks NOTHING like they did week 2, so refreshing to see a team grow as the season goes on

  • Crus57

    Balls.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    arghhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  • jshort

    hummmmm

  • shah8

    Shoot.

  • ToastJenkins

    damn damn damn

  • GvilleEagleFan

    Spoke too soon

  • Corry

    Well…silver lining is that Chip won’t let off the gas now.

    • Andy124

      Great minds.

  • SteveH

    The theme of that drive was friendly fire.

    • GvilleEagleFan

      We’d be an amazing D if we could get out of our own way, literally.

      • GEAGLE

        It was a good rub and the kid made a heckuva catch to get his feet in…it hurts, but nice play…NO MORE!!!

        • Andy124

          Yeah, I mostly credit the O there.

  • Andy124

    The true genius of Billy Davis. He’s making sure Chip doesn’t let off the gas yet.

  • OregonDucker

    Let’s see some more Foles Gold!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice return for smith

    • TheRogerPodacter

      feels good to type that name without having to type “smit”

  • scratcherk

    i’m ok with smith returning kicks

  • GEAGLE

    Positive KR yards?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      nah, we’re just going to hear that AZ has terrible ST after the game lol

      • GEAGLE

        They fell

  • xlGmanlx

    Looks like Chung and Ernie simms play by the same set of rules – Sharks!!

    • Andy124

      And Coleman, Chung’s potential replacement.

  • SteveH

    I like smith returning because it doesn’t expose Boykin to potential injury.

    • Crus57

      But how will we ever run the wildcat if Smith gets hurt?

      • SteveH

        On second thought… maybe Smith can pull a hammy. That wouldn’t be so bad.

    • TommyLawlor

      Yeah, and Smith is a proven KOR.

  • ACViking

    This is the “shootout” game that I’ve wanted to see Foles in.

    Cards have weapons on offense. A good defense.

    Let’s see Foles excute . . . and put the ghosts of Norm Snead to rest.

  • GEAGLE

    Caleus is bigger then a fly swatter

  • Andy124

    Block please.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    what happened on that play? lol. 3 defenders there to meet shady at the handoff

  • ACViking

    Cards very effective pushing the middle of the Eagles O-line back.

    • OregonDucker

      Yeah, I wonder about fatigue.

      • Crus57

        And yet the commentators all talk about how low our time of posession is, so it’s not due to that.

  • DamonL86

    awful series

  • DamonL86

    awful series

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn. really needed to NOT go 3 and out on this drive…

  • SteveH

    Bleh, OL is having a rough game in both pass protection and run blocking.

    • Andy124

      Yeah. Best front-7 they’ve played since KC.

      • SteveH

        Yeah gotta give the Cards credit, their D is legit.

        • Corry

          And they always seem to play the Eagles very well.

  • Andy124

    Foles was about to dish that to Lane when he realized it was an OL.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    hell of a punt by Donnie Football… if it stands

  • GEAGLE

    Defense…time for Cox to make a play..Barwin spending a lot of time in coverage..
    …..
    VINNY!! ,,

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice! play stands! thats like a 70 yard punt!

    edit: ok or 69 yards

    • Crus57

      69 yards, pleasing every 12 year old watching.

  • GvilleEagleFan

    Even when he’s getting sacked, much less heart-attack inducing than Vick. Great job tucking the ball while going down there

  • Spooonius

    another beautiful jones Punt

  • SteveH

    I love having a good punter.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      As much as I love Barwin, Donnie may be our best FA signing this past offseason.

  • OregonDucker

    Cards been Jones’d.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i’m Jonesing for a defensive play on this series

  • GEAGLE

    If our punter can keep doing this in December January he will be a brilliant weapon

  • GEAGLE

    I wanna see Lane line up wide for a screen an punish the honey badger

  • TheRogerPodacter

    GRAHAM!

  • Andy124

    Graham^2

  • Corry

    Brandon Graham REALLY wants more playing time.

  • SteveH

    GRAHAM CRACKERS!!!!

  • GEAGLE

    B dot GRIZZLE is in the building

  • scratcherk

    I read somewhere (maybe here) that Graham was taken out of some ST packages to give him more playing time on Def.

  • wallacemnw

    3rd and long…oh boy.

    • BlindChow

      What a surprise.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    bah. COME ON DEFENSE

  • DamonL86

    Come on that is terrible

  • SteveH

    We must be the worst 3rd and long D in the NFL.

    • wallacemnw

      Must be. Of alltime.

  • ACViking

    Seeing today that sacks are nice, but pressure more important

    • ACViking

      consistent pressure, i mean

  • wallacemnw

    Hate to say I told ya.

  • GEAGLE

    It’s ok, just means we get 3 more downs to force a turnover

    • OregonDucker

      This is a tough team. We have to be patient.

    • Andy124

      You’re gonna make a name for yourself…

      • GEAGLE

        Lol Mr. DECEMBER?

        I might be an optimist but at what point do I become a realist? LOL

    • TheRogerPodacter

      haha! i love your optimism, man! especially when you are right!

  • wallacemnw

    Just awful.

  • Crus57

    SCONCES

  • bdbd20

    Scones!!

  • Corry

    SCONCES!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    THERE YOU GO DEFENSE!

  • ACViking

    Williams totally BAITED Palmer

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Foles would never throw that ish.

  • SteveH

    CALLED IT!!! SAID WILLIAMS WOULD GET ONE TODAY!

  • GEAGLE

    MR. FUCKIN DECEMBER CARY Williams!!!!!!!

    • Patrick

      He can’t cover, but good bless him he tackles, he doesn’t get beat deep and he grabs some interceptions. Thats more 3 things than Nnamdi and DRC can do combined.

  • scratcherk

    FIND THAT MAN SOME MUTHA F-IN SCONCES!!!

  • wallacemnw

    My pessimism has been trumped!

  • deg0ey

    Foles currently chilling on a passer rating of 126; let’s hope he can hit a few long gains to bump that up a little :-)

    • SteveH

      you jinxed it man.

    • Andy124

      This is actually bad for him.

  • Andy124

    That pic was tastefully done. Illuminated that flaws in Palmer’s game.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ugh. wtf Foles. what the heck was that?!?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Not another 3 and out, ugh.

  • wallacemnw

    What happens at the end of the 3rd to the O?

  • Andy124

    Dang Shady, lots of room inside there.

  • shah8

    Field position game…

  • truthchief

    Play calling today is crapola

  • jshort

    not cool

  • jtre

    If Carson Palmer wasn’t terrible that would have been a TD. Our safety bit on the underneath route

    • Corry

      FacePalm Chung again.

      • Spooonius

        Yup.

    • Anders

      I just think we really are tripling Fitz now.

    • xlGmanlx

      Maybe because he was under duress as well.

  • Andy124

    Foles is a bit off here. Settle down, take some deep breaths and get back in rhythm.

    • GvilleEagleFan

      Someone needs to tell him to Grip It and Rip It

  • wallacemnw

    Really need to do better after a TO.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Chip is just putting the game in the hands of Donnie Jones. Coffin corner, baby.

  • Crus57

    Not sure I like these 3rd down runs against a very good rushing D.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      it worked earlier when we moved Lane out wide

      • TheRogerPodacter

        though i think that was more of a ‘safe’ play that *might* work, but a lower % play

  • GEAGLE

    Defense defense defense,,,

  • ACViking

    Running game hurting today. Best plays have been McCoy and Brown taking straight ahead.

    Cards starting to clamp down on receivers now w/ out worrying about the run

  • SteveH

    I feel like our offense is still trying to figure out the Cards D. They have a tough defense.

  • GEAGLE

    C dub Williams…
    “.
    Can’t believe I was watching NNamdi last year smh

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Blitz

  • wallacemnw

    Can we get a stop on 3rd?

    • Corry

      Yes.

    • SteveH

      Its a third and short so… yes.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    TRENT COLE BABY

  • Andy124

    3-out

    • BlindChow

      GET OUT.

  • Crus57

    Cox with nice penetration to make Palmer bring it down

  • GEAGLE

    How you loving your defense?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    AAAARRRRRGGGHHHHH!

  • OregonDucker

    Eagles D is for REAL.

  • BlindChow

    Did he also taunt at the end?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      maaaaaybe…. but i’m so angry i dont even care

    • Andy124

      Looks like he got away with it. Just wanted to give Foles more chances to get settled back in.

    • xlGmanlx

      Yeah, old habits die hard, low class in my opinion. That isn’t philly

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ugh. what is the penalty?!

    • FairOaks

      Holding on Coleman while the kick was in the air. Looked alike a reasonable call.

    • Scott

      Coleman held a gunner.

  • Corry

    Dammit.

  • Crus57

    Did we just lose a punt return TD because of a hold on a guy 20yds away with no chance of getting close to the ball?

    • jshort

      yep

    • jshort

      pretty weak call

      • TheRogerPodacter

        i think it was definitely holding. even if it didn’t affect the play, its still gotta be called

  • TheRogerPodacter

    curt coleman showing why he doesn’t want to take Chung’s place on D

    • Patrick

      Can we just cut him already? I know his heart is in it, but he doesn’t have an NFL body or a NFL mind.

  • BlindChow

    It should have been Chung out there on ST, with Coleman on defense. So I blame Chung for that penalty.

  • SteveH

    Didn’t even have anything to do with the return. Kurt Coleman with the I’m guilty hands in the air.

  • shah8

    You know…the Linc is still a pretty quiet place…

    • ICDogg

      Not enclosed enough to hold in the noise

  • GEAGLE

    Wtf is wrong with Coleman…his contract can’t expire fast enough…Chung needs to be our 4th safety playing ST

    • Dragon_Eagle

      I almost miss Jaijar.

    • xlGmanlx

      Chung needs to be on the street

    • Patrick

      Yeah agree, Nate Allen and Chung as backups and ST players, Wolff and a new guy with some playmaking ability to start.

      • BlindChow

        Allen has been good. Especially today.

        • Patrick

          He has the playmaking ability of a rubber duck though?
          Allen is average, but I like Wolff more. He seems faster and a better tackler.

          • BlindChow

            He had an interception. Or does that not count?

          • Patrick

            According to NFL.com, his first since 2011 and his 6th total. Boykin will probably have that many this year.

          • GEAGLE

            Allen can’t play ST…start him or let him walk

  • TheRogerPodacter

    block in the back on Avant?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      sigh. yep.

  • SteveH

    block in the back, damnit.

  • Andy124

    Dang Avant. Slow and now that?

  • Corry

    Wtf is wrong with these guys? Seriously, that’s two huge plays just blown because of stupid shit.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Good decision, Nick.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    NICE PUMP FAKE

  • GEAGLE

    FOles you crafty mofo

  • Andy124

    Coop usually catches that.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      yea thats definitely a matchup we want to throw to.

    • Corry

      Could have been a flag. Powers never looked back.

    • Crus57

      It’s easier without a CB hanging off your arm.

      • Andy124

        True.

  • SteveH

    wow ref missed PI on cards there.

  • GEAGLE

    Powers didn’t turn his head”.this is a joke

    • xlGmanlx

      textbook face guarding

  • TheRogerPodacter

    jeez. what is going on with the second half offense?!

    • Anders

      would be nice if we actually also gets some flags our way

  • wallacemnw

    ugh

  • ICDogg

    no protection

  • Andy124

    They (almost) never let it be easy.

  • SteveH

    2 huge penalties really hurt us. Lets hope that doesn’t come back and bite us in the ass.

  • DamonL86

    not gonna cut it

  • GEAGLE

    Did the honey badger just run Lane over? Wtf

    • Eric Carranza

      Saw 80s jersey most likely ertz

      • GEAGLE

        Lol I hope so

  • xlGmanlx

    mental mistakes keeping the cards in the game. The more they let them hang around, the more chances you give fitz to hurt you

  • wallacemnw

    This is awful. Cards only need 2 possessions.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    COME ON DEFENSE STEP IT UP AND GET THE BALL BACK

    • GEAGLE

      You rang? Our D can hunt all day…they have been inches away from stripping Palmer while his arm is cocked back to throw on multiple occasions

  • SteveH

    Bad feeling developing about this game. That PR TD could have all but iced it. OL is not blocking well.

  • GEAGLE

    Keep waiving your rally towels…our defense shows up late

  • SteveH

    Ref missed a PI on that deep pass to Cooper, CB was clearly holding his arm down. Tough sequence of events.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    yea curry. keep it going D

  • SteveH

    Curry sighting. What a stud.

  • GEAGLE

    VINNY

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Uh oh

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Get up, Kendricks.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    was kendricks hurt going to the ground on that play?

  • GEAGLE

    Kendricks just rolled his ankle…is Goode healthy? Acho isn’t active

    • Crus57

      Goode is out for the game, I think it was reported earlier :(

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i read earlier that Goode was hurt

    • Eric Carranza

      Had injury early in the game don’t know if he’s healthy now

      • Crus57

        Kempski reported he’s out for the game about 50minutes ago

  • ACViking

    jake knott, now?

  • Andy124

    Defense having a heckuva game so far.

    • OregonDucker

      Yeah, GEagle coached ‘em.

  • shah8

    Time running out for the Cardinals. Only way we lose is by screwup…

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Well, we’ve certainly been trying on O and STs. Unfortunately, our defense is not cooperating.

  • SteveH

    DSJ very dangerous running backwards there. Coulda been a fumble easily.

  • GEAGLE

    It’s an ankle…hopefully we get him back in a few weeks

  • GEAGLE

    Defense!! DEFENSE!! DEFENSE!!

  • Corry

    I love our cheerleaders.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Dear Chip,

    Would it be too much to ask for just a few first downs here?

  • Andy124

    C’mon shady! Ton of room tot he right!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    all right offense. time to pick up the slack!

  • GEAGLE

    Time for one of those long, unbalanced line, run drives to punish and put away the top ranked run defense

  • wallacemnw

    One good drive away from victory!

  • Crus57

    NFL showing its of the same family as Rugby there “Bind On!”

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Brown tried the Shady spin cycle move, not nearly as effective.

  • SteveH

    OL or someone fucked that up.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    phew. i thought that was an INT for a second.

  • Andy124

    Foles definitely off right now.

    • Corry

      he’s taken a beating today.

      • Andy124

        Go drink a smoothie on the sidelines and get that accuracy back.

    • Crus57

      Whole offense is out of rhythm to be honest

    • Patrick

      VICK TIME BABY!!!!!

    • SteveH

      Feels like a combination of him being off, bad protection and just good cardinals coverage. Tough stuff.

  • Insomniac

    Just woke up and started watching. Who’s getting beaten on the OL or is it the entire OL playing like garbage?

    • Crus57

      They’re being nice and taking it in turns. Sometimes they all do it at once, for variety.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      seems like a group effort, but mostly up the middle of the OL

    • GvilleEagleFan

      Apt username, lol. Whole OL is getting beat, seems to be a scheme/communication issue

  • shah8

    If the Cardinal’s offense wasn’t so pathetic, we’d be in trouble. Four and out in this situation is not good at all.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      they are pretty squarely in the middle of the league. not sure i’d call that pathetic… but ok.

    • Anders

      and if the Cards defense wasnt so good, we would have scored 40 points. What is your point?

    • GvilleEagleFan

      They scored 40 last week…

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Zona is going to have to start taking some real shots down the field soon.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    COME ON DEFENSE! GET THE BALL BACK!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    kendricks is back in the game

  • shah8

    That pass to Fitzgerald, just now…

  • scratcherk

    not a catch, thank you

    • FairOaks

      Mmm… might give him that. Looked like he had control by the time it touched the ground. Best hope is not enough evidence to overturn.

      • scratcherk

        yea, on replay, im thinking hte same but hope not enough to overturn

      • Insomniac

        The ball is clearly moving and he’s still trying to control it.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    after he bobbles it, it looks like he traps it against the ground

    • Eric Carranza

      Yeah n since it was rules incomplete hopefully they have to stick with that call

  • jshort

    cards wasting time out

  • Insomniac

    That’s incomplete.

  • Spooonius

    I think that they’re going to reverse the call. It looked like he has control

    • TheRogerPodacter

      even after he got up, the ball is still moving. can’t say he had control of it if the ball does indeed hit the ground

  • Andy124

    Better not overturn that.

    • Andy124

      If it is a catch, he’s down by contact a couple yards short of where he ended up.

  • GEAGLE

    You can’t overturn this

  • scratcherk

    not enough to overturn IMO

  • scratcherk

    f u ref

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Boooo!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    fuck. thats BS

  • Andy124

    I do not approve.

  • Crus57

    Not enough Bullshit in the world for that call. No way you overturn that.

  • ACViking

    No need to mention how Replay is WORTHLESS

  • Corry

    …the wheels are coming off.

    • GEAGLE

      Stop it. TO!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    jesus christ. how does Palmer throw this ball up into double coverage and complete it?!?!

  • scratcherk

    Boy-king!

  • ACViking

    BIG RECEIVERS MATTER

  • Insomniac

    Getting shafted by the refs..what’s new?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Boyking!

  • GEAGLE

    We bend before…let’s not break boys. TURNOVER TIME!!

  • Andy124

    pushups

  • ToastJenkins

    why cant it ever be easy…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    there you go boykin.

  • shah8

    Well, I spoke too soon about the quality of the Cardinals offense this game. Hope I didn’t jinx..

  • Spooonius

    That’s BS

  • GEAGLE

    They got every call we get none? This is insanity

  • TheRogerPodacter

    looks to me like hte defender initiated contact…. but Roc had his hand on the jersey…

  • Andy124

    These refs are killing us. We’re getting outnumbered.

  • DamonL86

    so glad we left them hanging around

  • Dragon_Eagle

    OK. We;ve done this before. 7 shots from 1 yard line. No points.

  • Patrick

    Zebras need glasses.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ok, theres one. give me more defense.

  • GEAGLE

    DEFENSE!!!!

  • scratcherk

    well that was easy

  • TheRogerPodacter

    jesus christ. that guy was wide open…. wtf.

  • GEAGLE

    FOles time!!!!

  • ACViking

    Every team runs that scrape play. Eagles included

  • BlindChow

    Wow, it now feels like we’re going to lose this one. Another 4th quarter collapse.

    • GEAGLE

      Nope!!

  • Corry

    Kendricks looking in the backfield.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    looks like kendricks lost him…

    • Corry

      Kendricks was just staring into the backfield.

  • shah8

    Well…shit. At least it was because the Cardinals playing well instead of Chung being Chung…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    all right offense. get your shit together and get some points!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Good thing we have all that time remaining on the clock to rebuild the lead. Otherwise I’d be concerned.

  • ACViking

    WHY has the Cards’ pass defense shut down the Eagles’ passing game?

    What are the Cards doing?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      Foles just looks off to me. he’s had a few chances.

      • GEAGLE

        FOles ain’t the problem..not always gonna be roses. He made enough plays, idiots like Avant and Kurt are killing us???we should have 35 points by now

    • Andy124

      Personally, Foles has looked really inaccurate this half. I don’t know if he got dinged or what.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      On the WRs, they are playing tight, tight coverage. Not a lot of separation.

    • Anders

      Well the Cards is one of the best defenses. They changed things and was able to get more pressure.

  • GEAGLE

    OMG I’m soo tired of them bringing up oregon

    • TheRogerPodacter

      right? LOL
      i swear its only the eagles games that they bring up this time of possession shit…

    • Spooonius

      It’s REALLY annoying

  • Andy124

    encroachment.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      cards are itching to go at the snap. time to draw them offsides.

  • Insomniac

    Wow…Josh Gordon and Alshon Jeffery is tearing up this week too.

  • BlindChow

    Oh god, not another 3 and out…

  • truthchief

    Once again, play calling stinks.

  • Corry

    Did we decided to not put the starters back out on the offensive line in the 2nd half?

  • Crus57

    NOOOOooo

    • Crus57

      Correction: PHEEEEwwww

  • ACViking

    center of the Eagles’ o-line dominated by Cards

  • TheRogerPodacter

    UGH GODDAMMIT

  • GEAGLE

    Flag no dice

  • scratcherk

    anus unclenching.

  • Spooonius

    We got one

  • Andy124

    better to be lucky that good

  • TheRogerPodacter

    that makes up for the punt return touchdown penalty

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I really do believe that I would not feel any emptiness in my life, if I was spared the wit and wisdom of Tony Siragusa.

    • GEAGLE

      What an idiot…as if we are gonna huddle up and let them substitute

  • Corry

    tick, tick, tick, tick…

  • GEAGLE

    UNBALANCED LINE TIME!!!!

  • Crus57

    Only McCoy could make 4 guys miss and still only get 2 yards.

    • Crus57

      This is a good thing, btw.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    they aren’t respecting foles on the keeper at all

    • Patrick

      He burning them now

      • TheRogerPodacter

        i guess they saw that one coming!

        • Crus57

          They’re reading this!

        • Patrick

          Well to be fair, if I did, they should have seen that coming last quarter. Im a Dane for god sakes, what do i know.

  • DamonL86

    come on

  • SeanofDead

    Awful…..awful play calling.

    • Scott

      read option is a staple of chip kelly’s offense. this is why foles isn’t starting next year.

      • GEAGLE

        HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

  • TheRogerPodacter

    didn’t we get a penalty for slamming a runner to the ground? isn’t that EXACTLY what just happened?!

    • scratcherk

      if foles was 40 lbs lighter, that would have been a penalty

  • GEAGLE

    DEFENSE!! DEFENSE!! DEFENSE!!! Go take your respect boys!!!

  • shah8

    Someone unjinx me NOW NOW NOW!!!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    OK. Here we go. Game is on the defense.

    • GEAGLE

      Love it!!! Let’s do this

  • ToastJenkins

    come on D…one more stop

  • Insomniac

    These 3 and outs…you would think that Chip would realize that this shit doesn’t work already after the bye.

  • DamonL86

    overtime and then loss incoming

    • GEAGLE

      Blah blah blah…you must not be paying attention to your eagles defense

      • GEAGLE

        Down vote me all you want, this D isn’t breaking. NOT TODAY!!!

    • DamonL86

      glad to be wrong

  • TheRogerPodacter

    loooks like we’re not going to cover that guy!?

  • Corry

    Those guys with the cardinals on their helmets…yeah we should cover them.

  • xlGmanlx

    I don’t care who is under center, if you don’t do anything in the 4th QTR, you aren’t going to win games late and in the playoffs.

  • OregonDucker

    Well, the test begins…

    • TommyLawlor

      I’m dying on the inside.

      • GEAGLE

        This is how you go get respect!! We have bent before,,,this is not the time to break!!! NOT TODAY boys

  • ACViking

    Whatever happens, I’m disappointed with the performance of the entire Eagles’ offense after the 10:00 minute mark of the 3rd Q.

    The Cards’ defense is good.

    It’s not the 1991 Eagles.

  • truthchief

    Why do we always struggle with the Cardinals?

  • scratcherk

    thank you carson

  • TheRogerPodacter

    do they go for it on 4th?

    • Andy124

      definitely.

  • Andy124

    1 more play!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Make some NOIZ!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    LETS GO DEFENSE!

  • Crus57

    FLETCHER!

  • BlindChow

    Whew. Close one.

  • Corry

    I think my heart stopped for a second…

  • xlGmanlx

    I don’t care how many snaps the Oline has played all season, they got beat a lot today. That has something to do with the second half

  • jshort

    ye of such little faith

  • shah8

    And that’s game.

  • Andy124

    YES!

  • GEAGLE

    That’s how you go get your FUCKIN RESPECT BOYS!!!

  • scratcherk

    mccoy td please.

  • Patrick

    Great coverage by Fletch!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Defense deserves the lion’s share of credit for this win. 21 points given all the opportunities the Cards had. Impressive.

    Also, thank god we have a RZ offense.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    you can’t call a penalty on Fletcher on that play after not calling all of the other ones earlier in the game. i applaud the refs for their consistency, i guess…

    • Crus57

      That sounds awfully rational, this is NFL refs we’re talking about.

  • ACViking

    game not over.

    TD clinches

  • Andy124

    ballsy enough to go play action on 2nd down?

    • Andy124

      Nope. Playing for 3.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    games not over yet, folks. cards can still get the ball back if we don’t get a first down.

  • Patrick

    Pound the rock Chippah!

  • ACViking

    Please, Kelly, don’t settle for a FG.

  • ToastJenkins

    take a shot at the endzone, Chip. go for the kill

    • BlindChow

      The way our offense is playing, I say FG.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        i agree. i’m not terribly confident in them right now

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Run the ball. Make the Cards use all their timeouts. Do NOT throw.

    • Andy124

      If you didn’t throw it on 2nd, I really don’t think you throw it on 3rd.

  • scratcherk

    get a high percentage throw for first here.

  • shah8

    The use of the time out early in the quarter looms big here. With that one time out, Arians would have punted.

  • scratcherk

    obvious hold there.

  • BlindChow

    Holding on defense?

    • BlindChow

      They held Celek.

      • BlindChow

        Wait, who is 85?

        • Andy124

          Casey?

        • TheRogerPodacter

          Casey

        • Crus57

          Casey

  • GEAGLE

    Defensive holding

  • jshort

    7-5

  • TheRogerPodacter

    hah way to take as much time as possible off the clock with that play!

  • Andy124

    Stayed in bounds too. Auto first down. Take a knee.

  • shah8

    Now it’s game.

  • Corry

    Shut up Moose.

  • ACViking

    the threat of Nick Foles CAUSED that holding!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Shut up Moose.

  • Insomniac

    Foles is crumbling now,

  • TheRogerPodacter

    you grab the arm and delay the release of the runner, its holding. what else do you want?!

    • Spooonius

      that is absolutely a hold

      • scratcherk

        Moose is a dumb fuck

    • Dan Koller

      Holding the jersey and continuing to hold…I guess “hold” means something different for the crew calling the game than it does for the rest of the world

    • BlindChow

      I’m just glad the refs saw it.

  • SteveH

    Jesus shut up Moose that was an obvious hold, holy shit.

  • GEAGLE

    Call the WHAAAAAAmbulance bitches!

  • BlindChow

    Foles thought about keeping and running with that first kneel down…

  • ToastJenkins

    Love the playcall. without the hold Casey walks into the endzone.

    • Anders

      yep, not sure why they are mad. Dont hold the guy who was designed to get the ball

  • OregonDucker

    Great game by all.

  • BlindChow

    Well, that was a tight one. I would have been a lot more comfortable with one more TD drive…

    • Crus57

      The Philadelphia Eagles – sponsored by your local Cardiac ward.

    • Eric Carranza

      Jackson had a td punt return too bad it was called back

  • ICDogg

    too close for comfort, but whew.

  • GEAGLE

    FLY EAGLES FLY!!!!!
    ..
    DEFENSE! DEFENSE! DEFENSE!!
    ..
    Not gonna be pretty for 60 min, but so important for a young team to learn to claw and scratch no matter what adversity…

    We beat a good team making a lot of mistakes…imagine what happens when this young team cleans it up!!
    .
    we BATTLED today!!!

  • ToastJenkins

    thats the toughest game out of the last 5. D stepped up and Foles did alright vs a talented defense. have to like how Chip has this team performing so soon in his tenure

  • Corry

    The whole “Let’s play really well for 2.5 quarters and then shit the bed and let the other team into it” is going to cause me to die an early death.

    • Andy124

      It’ll be a race to the grave.

      My money’s on me.

      • Corry

        Take comfort in knowing you won’t be the last one.

  • scratcherk

    btw, how was that anything but a hold?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    That was a good win against a tough team; a playoff team. Granted, I would prefer 56-0, but those are the kind of games that help the team grow.

    Headed in the right direction.

  • xlGmanlx

    Terrible 4th QTR by the “O” and kelly’s play calling, bailed again, AGAIN, by the defense. Two turn overs by the D giving the igg’s great field position and the O goes 3 and out. I think the O line is too up and down, see ya next week. Great start to rebuilding the franchise, playing with house money.

    • Anders

      I give them some leeway this game. The Cards was a top 3 defense.

  • SteveH

    Someone needs to examine Moose’s head with all that bitching about the holding call, there were definitely some iffy calls this game but that was not one of them. I love how they only showed the replay once too because if they showed it again he would have had to eat his words. I don’t understand these analysts sometimes they have to have the same damn replays we do, how do they fuck up so hard.

    • Crus57

      Fullbacks not brain well.

    • Corry

      Kenny, Moose, and Goose are awful.

      • Crus57

        No, they’re below average. Phil Simms is awful.

    • jshort

      there were more against us

    • BlindChow

      I think he just wanted the Eagles to lose because they didn’t huddle and run out the clock in the 4th. He wanted them to pay for such non-standard practice.

    • Buge Halls

      Yep – the jersey pull at then end was the hold! It was pretty obvious.

  • Crus57

    As Tommy pointed out on twitter, that is the 8th straight team the Eagles D has held to 21pts or under.

  • Anders

    I got a question. In late game situations where we know we are going to run only. Would Vick be a better QB? He would be able to pick up more yards on the keepers and he might give more room for the RB

    • Crus57

      Not an awful idea, however it relies on Vick not being rusty and/or getting injured.

      • Corry

        And relies on him not turning the ball over.

        • Buge Halls

          I don’t trust Vick not turning the ball over EVER!

        • Dragon_Eagle

          Agreed. Vick, unfortunately, is turnover prone trying to make things happen. Nick has earned the trust to be in there with the game on the line.

    • Andy124

      no

    • anon

      Id say no, not b/c of the douches below but because it’d be obvious what you are doing. It’d probably work for a game or two. I also think Vick would get hurt during one of those 40yds runs.

  • BlindChow

    Did we use much play-action in the second half? It seems like we do better with play action passes, especially when the box has been stacked to stop McCoy.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Let’s go Vikings!!!!

    • SteveH

      Jesus, Vikings just blew it.

  • SteveH

    Tough battle, we clearly won the first 2.5 quarters, they clearly won the last 1.5 quarters. I feel like the offense started pressing in the 2nd half when things weren’t going well, Nick made some throws he doesn’t usually make.

    One big takeaway from this game is either the Cardinals front 7 is all going to the pro bowl or our OL needs to step up their game bigtime. Or maybe some combination of both. They had a tough time run blocking and Foles was under pressure quite a bit.

    I thought Chippah had a good gameplan using the tight ends so much, but it felt like once they adjusted to that we had a hard time finding something that works. Gotta credit the Cardinals D for making it tough, its obvious why they’re considered one of the best units in the league.

    All in all I’ll take the win and hopefully its a learning experience for the team.

    • Crus57

      It’s funny, when our OL gave Foles time we were moving the ball and scoring. As soon as they started getting regular pressure, we’re 3&out over and over.

      • SteveH

        I felt like their coverage tightened up as well, you could see Foles was trying to force the ball in more in the 2nd half. Something for Foles to learn from, when things aren’t going well you can’t try and make things happen that aren’t there.

  • http://www.aceandson.com/blog Richard O’Connor

    Lots of McCoy getting hit behind the line again. Makes it tough to run out the clock like that.

    On a bright note (in addition to the win): at least the Eagles aren’t the Vikings

    • SteveH

      My favorite part of the whole broadcast: Kenny Moose and Goose talking about the Eagles running out the clock and how this isn’t college anymore… a few weeks after the Eagles bled 9 and a half minutes to ice a game almost purely by running the ball.

  • jshort

    what was Foles final qb rating?

    • Andy124
