Go Eagles!!!


  • ICDogg

    Let’s go!

  • nicolajNN

    So far so good as far as what we talked about with Cole yesterday

  • Eric Carranza

    Love the way celek plays

  • nicolajNN

    Strictly speaking was that really a sack though?

    • Corry

      Yes, forcing a fumble on a QB without bringing him down is a sack.

    • Eric Carranza

      Yes lol

    • BlindChow

      That’s how it’s credited, at least.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i’m assuming you are asking about the ball moving forward (incomplete pass) or not (sack).
      i did not think the ball was moving forward, but it was close.
      the league has an official in the booth upstairs to tell the refs to automatically review scoring plays and turnovers, right?

      • BlindChow

        I think he was wondering if it was technically a sack if the quarterback wasn’t actually brought to the ground.

  • BlindChow

    College THAT, Arians!

  • Andy124

    4 passes all to TE

  • SteveH

    Wow, what a start.

  • T_S_O_P

    I am pumped. Hollering already. Cole and Foles. You beauty

    • Crus57

      Might’ve hurt my hand clapping loudly here at home.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        LOL same here haha

  • TheRogerPodacter

    with the foles TD pass, did he beat peyton’s record for starting the season with more TD passes with no INTs?

    IIRC, they were tied for a while.

    EDIT: i stand corrected. thanks all.

    • SteveH

      I think its 20, that was number 17 for Foles.

    • BlindChow

      20 is Peyton’s record from this year. 16 was the old record.

  • GEAGLE

    What I say about the defense you would see today?
    ..
    Cooper and TEs is how you shred this defense!!! Get em ERTZY!!!

    The RAINMAKER is back at it.

  • SteveH

    That was a really nice throw by Foles actually. He looked casual doing it but put it right on the money.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    run D looking very impressive so far. DL is looking good.

    • BlindChow

      Barwin is doing a great job setting the edge.

  • BlindChow

    Mendenhall is a fumbler. Hopefully the Eagles were briefed.

  • OregonDucker

    Welcome to Chip ball bitches!!

    • GEAGLE

      Stomp these warm weather pussies…rainmaker!!!,

  • Andy124

    No rust for Kendriks.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn. got good pressure on that play, needed a little tighter coverage. : /

  • BlindChow

    Tommy was RIGHT!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    holy shit nate allen

  • Corry

    OMG! TOMMY WHAT ARE THE LOTTERY NUMBERS?!

  • Crus57

    Hurt my hand again.

  • Spooonius

    Tommy is psychic!

    • Tumtum

      Called it buddy!!!

    • Eric Carranza

      Ask him for lotto numbers quick

      • Andy124

        Corry got dibs on them.

        • Eric Carranza

          Damn lol

      • ian_no_2

        stock tips

  • ACViking

    Jarius WHO?

  • SteveH

    TOMMY WHATS THE STOCK MARKET TOMORROW?!?

  • T_S_O_P

    Tommy you God. LB talk and Nate talk. What are the lottery numbers.

  • Andy124

    T-Law you beautiful bastard!

    • BlindChow

      You motor boatin’ son of a bitch!

      • GEAGLE

        Hahahahah chill out Vince :)

  • GEAGLE

    How you like YOUR eagles defense?

    • OregonDucker

      Man, we all were wrong about Nate this year! Coaching has turned him 180.

      • GEAGLE

        We certainly were…NO ONE thought Nate was salvageable

  • NoDecaf

    Tommy the prognosticator!

  • shah8

    This game is already over.

    • Crus57

      Not with the Cards D, I don’t think.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      with this team? at home? i’m not going to say its over until the clock hits zero.

      • shah8

        Yeah, I was expecting a better offense on the second series. Thought for sure, there would be another TD.

        This isn’t an offense that can be stopped easily with a big lead, even though Georgia Tech proved it could be done, yesterday…

        • shah8

          The defense is niiiiiiiicee, though.

  • nicolajNN

    Boooyah!!!!

  • SteveH

    Well, that was good protection by the OL.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    lol worst slide ever

    • Eric Carranza

      Better than vick

    • SteveH

      Foles doesn’t slide, he lays down.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        i can’t stop laughing. he basically had to slow down to a stop and then take a knee haha

    • Crus57

      Any slide you can walk away from is a good slide.

      • GEAGLE

        Ain’t that the truth…don’t care how you do it, get down, protect the ball, live to play another down

    • ICDogg

      no style points in the NFL

      • BlindChow

        He’s not making the Pro Bowl with that slide…

  • SteveH

    So on that sack… what protection scheme was that? I’m not sure they coach em up to give the inside rusher a free run.

  • BlindChow

    Ugh, wide open.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    wow that guy was WIDE open. must have caught us in a blitz or something

    • Corry

      Yeah, we brought Chung from the other side.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    holy shit. we got lucky he dropped that one…

    • SteveH

      Better to be lucky than good sometimes ;).

      • ICDogg

        Yeah, truth be told Nate’s Int was lucky too… the receiver had BFletch beat

        • SteveH

          I think pressure influenced the throw on that one. Tough to throw with people in your face. I’ll count that one as a win for the D.

  • ACViking

    Can’t depend on wide open Cards receivers dropping 1st down passes

    • ICDogg

      I’ll take it though

      • BlindChow

        Not me! I think we should give them another shot.

  • ACViking

    Andy124:

    Your comment about T-Law’s prophetic call conjured memories of this line:

    “Rommel, you magnificent bastard . . . I read your book.”

    • TommyLawlor

      I love that scene.

    • Andy124

      Sorry, have not seen that movie. Patton?

      • BlindChow

        Dude, Where’s My Car?

      • ACViking

        Yes, Patton.

        Oh, worth the 3+ hours.

  • GEAGLE

    Hahaha FOles sets another record….RAINMAKER!!!

    • Crus57

      I didn’t catch that, what was it?

      • Andy124

        Broke a tie with Milt plum for second most td without a pick to start a season.

        • Crus57

          Nice! Thanks.

  • GEAGLE

    That pass to Ertz was gorgeous

    • SteveH

      It was superb. Tremendous touch.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    mccoy gotta trust the play…. head upfield!

  • SteveH

    Dick Stockton: “Lesean Leccoy”

  • TheRogerPodacter

    cards D doing a great job of shutting down our run game.

    • ICDogg

      Yeah, they’re going with the “make the Eagles one-dimensional” plan

      • GEAGLE

        Shady will get loose in the second half once the tempo and sport science takes it’s toll

    • jshort

      setting them up!

    • TommyLawlor

      Slow start so far. Shady and Kelly trying to figure out how they want to attack them.

  • SteveH

    Bah, looked like if Mccoy had cut that to the left he had the first down.

    • Spooonius

      yeah I thought so too

  • ACViking

    T-Law:

    Missed Eagles’ opportunities so far?

    Or good Cards’ defense?

    • TommyLawlor

      Both. Foles hasn’t found WRs yet. Might be good coverage.

    • shah8

      Not enough game happened.

    • GEAGLE

      It’s football…we aren’t scoring but we doing real well in the field position battle

  • TommyLawlor

    Injury update:

    Najee Goode has a hamstring injury, return is questionable. Jeff Maehl has a head injury, return also questionable

  • OregonDucker

    Chip is setting the Cards up in the run game. Watch and learn.

  • Crus57

    We have an awful lot of defenders who are one step away from levelling Palmer.

  • BlindChow

    Is this going to be soft zone coverage all game or what?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i’d like to see tighter coverage… the DL is getting good pressure

  • SteveH

    Anyone else watching this on sky sports? I love listening to the Brits talk about American Football.

    “Lock up your cattle folks, Randy Bullock kicked a field goal.”

    • Crus57

      o/ I am. That line got a chuckle from me, Neil Reynolds is pretty good.

  • Crus57

    Curry!

    • Crus57

      Actually, Meco!

      • TheRogerPodacter

        i give them both credit

      • GEAGLE

        Curry had To be held or Palmer woulda died on the field

  • GEAGLE

    Front 7 is fuckin DIRTY DIRTY!!!

    • OregonDucker

      Proud of these men!

      • GEAGLE

        Yes sir!!! Hulls for president!! You new fans don’t know how Every year Coles wear down and sucks in December…you can’t tell me the sports science is BS when Coles is older and playing better late in the season….this has NEVER happened with Cole

      • GEAGLE

        Yes sir!!! Hulls for president!! You new fans don’t know how Every year Coles wear down and sucks in December…you can’t tell me the sports science is BS when Coles is older and playing better late in the season….this has NEVER happened with Cole

  • Corry

    Vinny Curry is a beast.

  • Andy124

    Hold em here D

  • BlindChow

    3rd and long, not our strong suit.

    • BlindChow

      Better than 3rd OR long, amirite?

      • TheRogerPodacter

        LOL
        thats gold right there.

  • SteveH

    That sack should probably be at least .5 to Curry

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i’m sure the coaches will give him more credit than that when reviewing the tape. too bad it doesn’t show up on the stat sheet for him, though.

  • SteveH

    That sack should probably be at least .5 to Curry

  • shah8

    Eagles defense generating quite a few negative plays for the Cardinals offense.

  • ICDogg

    Palmer makes Nick Foles look like usain bolt.— Mike Missanelli (@MikeMiss975) December 1, 2013

  • Andy124

    Nick only has 1 pass attempt since the first drive? No wonder we haven’t scored since.

    • shah8

      First drive was pretty countermode.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    UGH. what a bounce…

  • Corry

    That was a gorgeous punt by the Cards. Wow.

  • ICDogg

    ooh, bad bounce for us

  • Crus57

    This is going to be interesting. So much for field position!

    • GEAGLE

      We have an opportunity to deflate and demoralize them with a long drive!!!

      • Crus57

        I like your thinking!

  • SteveH

    Wow, what a punt. Gotta give props to the punter for that one.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i’ll take that. get some space between us and the endzone

  • GEAGLE

    Wow, that ZR sweep was pretty

  • TheRogerPodacter

    that was a nice looking play to put djax in motion and get him the ball

    • GEAGLE

      Oh ooooh college offense is starting to get jiggy wit it
      ..
      Edit….sorry for the jinx

      Edit….your welcome for the counter jinx

  • TheRogerPodacter

    that was a nice looking play to put djax in motion and get him the ball

  • BlindChow

    THERE’S the Brown we know and love.

    • SteveH

      LOL, after a 6 yard gain Brown loses 8. Ugghhh.

    • scratcherk

      Classic.

  • GEAGLE

    Get Bryce out of the damn game…where the hell is he running

  • Corry

    I can’t even begin to describe the amount of hate I have for any play that makes Brown run East West. Just let him go up the field all day.

    • Andy124

      Single handedly killed that drive.

  • Andy124

    That was AWFUL Bryce.

  • scratcherk

    Wow that was a damn sloppy play. Ill take it!!!!

  • scratcherk

    Wow that was a damn sloppy play. Ill take it!!!!

  • Crus57

    OMGWTFBBQ?!

  • Crus57

    OMGWTFBBQ?!

  • jshort

    hehehe

  • jshort

    hehehe

  • TheRogerPodacter

    holy shit what a rollercoaster of emotion on that play

  • SeanofDead

    Wow! I need that on a gif!
    Hope it stands.

  • SteveH

    At first I was like YES! then NO! Then YES! I DONT KNOW HOW TO FEEL!

    • GEAGLE

      Scroll down and read my edit comment lol

    • Andy124

      Feel like the D is about to go get another stop.

  • Eric Carranza

    Damn might come back

  • SeanofDead

    Damnit he was down

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i can’t see anything. what do you all think? eagles or cards ball?

    • Crus57

      Cards, imo.

    • Crus57

      Cards, imo.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        damn!

        • Crus57

          It’s close but their guy had his knee just down before the ball came out.

          • T_S_O_P

            BS

          • Crus57

            C’mon, we never get that lucky.

  • ACViking

    More proof that Instant Reply is UNNECESSARY . . . not to mention too long.

  • T_S_O_P

    Question: when Bryce Brown lost yardage, he had enough time to maybe make the option pass out of bounds. could he of done that rather than lose those yards?

    • SteveH

      I was wondering the same thing. Just chuck that thing out of bounds!

    • FairOaks

      Most running plays there will be ineligible receivers downfield by that point.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        what is that? a five yard penalty and redo the down? i’d take that!

        • BlindChow

          It could be declined, I assume…

          • TheRogerPodacter

            but wouldn’t that just be an incomplete pass?

          • BlindChow

            Interesting. There must be some reason teams don’t do it…

          • TheRogerPodacter

            i think the distance might have something to do with it. if you are close enough to the LOS, it might not be worth the risk of passing.
            also – remember the ronnie brown goal line fumble?

          • BlindChow

            How could I forget! That one was different in that there was no sideline, though.

          • TheRogerPodacter

            true. but i don’t want the thought of a pass to be considered by our RBs lol

    • TheRogerPodacter

      bad memories of ronnie brown coming back

    • shah8

      play got blown up in the interior, I believe. Brown should have given up, not necessarily keep going.

  • nicolajNN

    Not very familiar with ST rules, but was that not a major holding on our gunner on the far side?

  • BlindChow

    Who is Eagles #21? He had a clear shot at the ball and knocked it right to a Cardinals player instead. Let’s GET HIM!

    • Corry

      Carmichael

    • Crus57

      It came off his feet while he was faceplanting into the turf.

    • Crus57

      It came off his feet while he was faceplanting into the turf.

  • ACViking

    Watch for the long pass

    • TheRogerPodacter

      you called it

  • ACViking

    Watch for the long pass

  • scratcherk

    way to use your head chung

    • Corry

      I can’t wait for Wolff to get back.

  • GEAGLE

    That’s serious coverage by chunger

    • GEAGLE

      Looked better without the replay

  • T_S_O_P

    Coleman had his hand all over that ball even when the knee wasn’t touching and that is what caused the fumble

  • GEAGLE

    They better not give them that spot

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ugh. looks like a shitty spot of the ball for us. the WR ran himself back on his own. i don’t think he stretched in time.

  • scratcherk

    Please challenge, shurmur

    • Crus57

      They did!

    • GEAGLE

      Right!!!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      absolutely challenge worthy.

    • BlindChow

      Someone gave Kelly a red flag today!

      • SteveH

        Progress! See this team does keep getting better every week.

      • GEAGLE

        The man is learning, and don’t strike me as an insane Andy type who will make the same mistakes for 14years :)

    • TheRogerPodacter

      and there it is.

    • Corry

      Someone must have woken up Shurmur for the game.

    • shah8

      Doesn’t matter in the first half, but I would not challenge plays like these in the second half. Minimal chances of an ultimate good event in no first down terms.

      • shah8

        like I said…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i think because the WR ran backwards on his own, that you can’t give him that forward progress. is that correct?

  • Andy124

    Oh, Goose, you lose foward progress when you voluntarily give ground.

  • Crus57

    Winnable challenge with challenge flag thrown! That’s a twist they didn’t have before the bye week.

  • Corry

    How is that a heads up play Moose? He ran backwards when all he had to do was fall backwards for the first down.

  • Crus57

    Will be tough to stopthem if they go for it on 4th and inches, though.

  • SeanofDead

    I think we win challenge, and Az goes for it. Palmer up the middle.

    • OregonDucker

      If Palmer keeps we tear his head off!!

      • Crus57

        Pretty sure decapitation is unsportsmanlike conduct these days.

  • ACViking

    So far . . . I’m a bit discouraged by the bye-week adjustments the Eagles made.

    Or didn’t make.

    Things seemed to going so well . . . .

    PS – I am NOT surrendering. I just want explosive plays NOW

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i’ll take explosive plays OR a sustained drive without mistakes

      • ACViking

        absolutely

  • GEAGLE

    How was the initial ruling a first down? I saw it live…they better overturn this crap

  • GEAGLE

    BOOYAH!!! Boom shackalacka

  • Andy124

    One quarter yard to gain. Never heard that before.

  • GEAGLE

    Turn over on downs!! I NEEDS this!!!!

  • Andy124

    Blow em up Bennie.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    trying to draw us offsides?

    • Eric Carranza

      Most likely

    • ICDogg

      possibly

  • GEAGLE

    Don’t let the draw you offsides. Fuck Jaqua Parker…I’m still not over it

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn!

  • GEAGLE

    Ooooh that just made me mad

  • TheRogerPodacter

    COME ON DEFENSE

  • TheRogerPodacter

    bah. meco took the wrong gap

  • SteveH

    They’re running it because they can’t pass block.

    • Corry

      Wow you weren’t kidding.

  • GEAGLE

    Mendenhal will fumble…I like how we keep trying to strip the ball on D and St

  • ACViking

    The 15-yard run (or so) by Mendenhall shows the importance of a NT

    • Andy124

      Bennie got lit up by that double team.

  • SeanofDead

    Graham my man!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    YEA DEFENSE

  • Andy124

    Graham siting!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      he was in on the tackle at the LOS on this drive too

  • SteveH

    GRAHAM CRACKERS!!!!!

  • GEAGLE

    B dot GRIZZLE is in the building! Benny was hunting too

    • OregonDucker

      Bloodthirsty bastards.

  • Crus57

    OH FFS

  • TheRogerPodacter

    MOTHER FUCKER

  • BlindChow

    Wow, straight out of 2012.

  • GEAGLE

    No way…I’m sick

    • BlindChow

      That was the defense a lot of us expected to see today…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    how was there no holding on the OL on that?! wtf

  • Corry

    I hate Larry Fitzgerald. he does that shit to us every time we play him.

  • T_S_O_P

    Philly buster :(

  • SeanofDead

    Yuck, was that Chung taking out ….yup it was

  • shah8

    AAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGHGHGHHGHH!!!

    No excuse for that!

    • TommyLawlor

      So frustrating.

      • GEAGLE

        Please let us know if they shoulda been called for holding on that play in the DGR

        Good Offense tends to beat good defense…we gotta chalk that one up, and just beat the crap out of Palmer for that. Someone has to pay for that…nvmd defense didn’t look so good on replay….Wolff needs to get healthy

  • TheRogerPodacter

    goddammit chung. you only managed to hit boykin

    • Spooonius

      it seems like he’s always doing that

    • Corry

      He took out Cole on the long TD against the ‘Skins two weeks ago too.

  • SeanofDead

    P Chung is effing terrible, i hate his face

  • Andy124

    Chung looking like 2012 Coleman knocking our other defenders off the receiver.

  • Crus57

    My impression si Chung does that more than most, go for the hit not the tackle. He’s knocking our guys away this season.

  • scratcherk

    Chung hit boykin more than fitz

    • Patrick

      Good coverage by Boykin on a superstar WR, terrible by Chung. I thought we signed him even though he can’t cover for the simple reason that he is a good tackler and a big hitter.

  • SteveH

    Larry Fitzgerald: RETIRE ALREADY

  • jshort

    need to respond.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    am i just being emotional in wanting to see Coleman in there over Chung? i mean, is there really any difference between them? Chung has looked awful all game

  • ACViking

    Patrick Chung should not be brought back.

    Sorry.

    He not only missed calculating the angle of the pass-catch, but then knocked Boykin down.

    Belicheck — a man desperate for DBs — cut him loose for a decision. And not just injuries.

    • OregonDucker

      Chung is really hurting us. He must go!

    • shah8

      Ernie Sims is safer.

    • Andy124

      Just blitzed and looked awful doing it.

  • Crus57

    Note sure a blitz on 3rd & 20 was the best idea either, but hindsight and all that..

    • BlindChow

      It was 3rd and 20?! No wonder we gave up a long touchdown…

    • TheRogerPodacter

      the defense was in the right spot to stop him…but chung decided to hit instead of tackle

      • Crus57

        Deciding implies thought.

  • ACViking

    Today, Nick Foles will have to win the game.

    • OregonDucker

      Yes, final exam time.

  • scratcherk

    hows brad smith doin

  • Andy124

    Foles is SO good in the screen game.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      he really waited to the very last possible second to get rid of that one

    • BlindChow

      I’m fooled every time.

    • GEAGLE

      BIGTIME play…hold the ball til last second and take a big hit…awesome

  • SteveH

    Ugly duck there but he caught it lol

  • Corry

    A better throw and Avant is still running.

    • Corry

      Actually I take that back. Avant is slow.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      true. but across your body and across the field, i’ll take it.

  • Crus57

    Riley HOOPstar

  • TheRogerPodacter

    holy shit. what did i just see?!

  • Andy124

    Holy Crap.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    that was just… madness

  • Neil

    I think Foles hurt his throwing hand

    • GEAGLE

      I’ll kill you!!!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i hope you are wrong!

  • Corry

    Sunshine with a hell of a play.

  • GEAGLE

    Coop!!’snoop a loop..we are streaking!!! Bring your green hat!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    well thats not a good start for brad smith….

  • Andy124

    I hate that crap.

  • ICDogg

    that was just stupid

  • ACViking

    STUPID WILDCAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Spooonius

    What the f ??????

  • shah8

    Interesting series…

  • ACViking

    Gave the down away.

  • Spooonius

    please don’t ever do that again Chip Kelly

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i still don’t understand that play. why split foles out wide?

    • Crus57

      So he can get hit by the CB of course.

  • Corry

    Our line just got murdered on that one.

  • GEAGLE

    I’ll take the 3 right now…come on drunken idiot kicker!!

  • Crus57

    Still do not like Henery’s kicks hooking in flight.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice kick Henery.

  • SteveH

    Jailbreak there, take the sack kick the FG, not the worst result in the world.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i think that if it wasn’t 3rd down that Foles would have thrown that one away. though risking a FF, i’d rather him just throw it away.

  • ACViking

    Why do you put a guy in at QB who hasn’t played in 10 weeks, who’s not as good at throwing as Foles, and not as good at running as Vick.

    WHAT THE HELL KIND OF DECISION WAS THAT?

    • Corry

      That was awful.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      yea, i’d rather get him snaps on ST and work him into the offense slowly

    • ICDogg

      College offense decision?

    • TommyLawlor

      I have no problem with the idea. The execution was the problem. Smith is normally a reliable veteran player. Just had a brain fart in handling that snap.

      • deg0ey

        But why would you use him instead of Vick in that situation?

        • TheRogerPodacter

          good question – i didn’t think of that.

          • GEAGLE

            I wonder if Barkley not dressing played a role in that decision

      • Crus57

        You could see on the replay his eyes were on the D Line and LBs as the snap hits his hands.

      • BlindChow

        It was a read-option run. Not exactly something we’ve never done before…

    • GEAGLE

      Too cute..shoulda pounded the rock 4 times in a row..shady was getting into a Rythem

    • Eric Carranza

      Would of liked to see foles at qb n Vick n McCoy on his sides as backs

  • shah8

    The big play here is the throw to Avant. A better throw (even though that would be very hard), means six, depending on the race to the end zone.

    Cooper had a pretty awesome catch. Better throw here might have gotten closer to the end zone given that his man slipped.

    Shady is looking like he’s getting into the zone…

  • SteveH

    OL has been a bit shaky in pass protection today. Kind of expected because the Cards are good at pressure but… could be better.

  • Neil

    Foles landed on his right hand awkwardly. His body language afterward was like he was hurt. He held the hand to his face as he got up. Then he almost missed Cooper 15 yards away, and the Eagles didn’t pass again. Hope I’m wrong.

    • SteveH

      Hope so too!

    • Eric Carranza

      They were actually gonna pass in that 3rd down

      • Neil

        Man, this is true. Funny how I forgot.

    • ACViking

      Foles was drilled into the ground on his tender right shoulder on that screen to McCoy earlier.

      Then he nearly under-threw a wide open Avant.

      • Neil

        !!!

  • GEAGLE

    Cox and Barwin need to show up NOW!

    • Crus57

      You rang?

      • GEAGLE

        Lol

  • TheRogerPodacter

    big pressure by Cox

    • TheRogerPodacter

      jesus. looks like he just pushed him aside

  • Andy124

    Penetration by our Cox!

    • Eric Carranza

      Fletcher “the penetrator” Cox lol

      • GEAGLE

        I second your nomination. Cox the penetrator it is!

  • GEAGLE

    OMG cox brought The heat

  • TheRogerPodacter

    there you go, Defense!

  • SteveH

    2 minute drill time.

  • GEAGLE

    Fuckin love this defense!!!

    • Crus57

      Starting to get happy thoughts about how they’ll look next season after adding some players to fill some holes in the offseason.

      • GEAGLE

        YES! YES! YES! Every one of these players will be better in this scheme next year as well

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn. kinda wish djax kept crossing the field there.

  • Noel

    Can we keep that version of the defense?

  • shah8

    Cardinals offense is not good enough without help Eagles players.

    • OregonDucker

      Without Chung’s help you mean?

      • shah8

        yup. Only screw ups.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Just back from airport. How they lookin’?

    • SteveH

      Outside of 1 freaking Larry Fitzgerald play they’re looking good.

      • Crus57

        Fitz basically just had to hold on while Chung cleaned Boykin off him and then run to the end zone, not on Fitz’s highlight reel

    • Crus57

      As billed really. Cards D is tough, their O is vulnerable.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Thanks for the cliff notes. Let’s go Birds!

  • ACViking

    Now we’ll see if Foles shoulder is okay.

    He’s been good this season in the 2-minute drill. I think so, at least.

    • SteveH

      Really its tough to say because any of our drives could be considered a 2 minute drill drive.

      • ACViking

        Only difference is in the 2-minute drill, a team really has only 2 minutes.

  • ACViking

    Cards playing playoff-defense.

    Let’s see Eagles step it up.

  • Crus57

    That was a pretty pretty throw.

    • shah8

      Actually, my heart stopped. That ball hung in the air for so long…

      • Andy124

        Yeah, definitely not an NFL throw.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    goddamn does Foles throw a nice ball

  • Corry

    Gorgeous.

  • GEAGLE

    The rainmaker!!!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    how is there no flag on that play? at a minimum illegal contact

    • Corry

      Defender got his head around for the ball.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        as long as they show the same attitude when we are on defense, i’m ok with it. begrudgingly so for now… lol

  • Spooonius

    he is so slow!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ok, that was bananas

  • SteveH

    lol Nick Favre with the improv there.

    • SteveH

      Hopefully Nick doesn’t follow Favre’s footsteps with his off the field activities.

      • ACViking

        The only common characteristic those two share is big hands.

        • SteveH

          So no pills or dick pics? That’s a good thing.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      No Favring until you win a Superbowl. That’s the law.

  • Andy124

    Amazing. Saw the bubble screen was covered so started to run. Then flipped to McCoy on the way down for a decent gain.

  • nicolajNN

    Foles makes some absolutely amazing throws

    Btw, I think Cecil Martin called Cooper a top notch receiver

    • SteveH

      He did! In fairness Riley Cooper has clearly been replaced with some sort of military drone.

    • T_S_O_P

      He’s no longer a JAG on current evidence.

  • GEAGLE

    Ok Folesy…………….give me 7 and go get your crown kid!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    djax nice pass breakup

  • OregonDucker

    That pass will put the fear of God in them!

  • Crus57

    There’s less than 2 minutes to play, we’re across the halfway line and we actually still have all 3 timeouts.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    not sure djax is the guy i want on a jump ball. but i think the early defensive pressure slowed down Foles’ release.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Its going to take 2 seasons with Chip to become accustomed to that.

    • SteveH

      Yeah he was late because of the pressure, shouldn’t have thrown it.

  • GEAGLE

    I fuckin love that he goes after Peterson!!! He went after Revis and he going after Peterson!!! Fuckin love this kid

    • OregonDucker

      No fear whatsoever!

      • GEAGLE

        This ain’t Andrew luck and TY hilton…we gonna get these DBs on their heels

  • TheRogerPodacter

    djax with a slight limp : (

  • ICDogg

    wtf is going on with this time out?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      something from the booth. not sure what there is to review…

  • ACViking

    A delay to check if the Replay systems works? UGH!

    • Corry

      Went in our favor because it gave Jackson a moment to shake it off.

  • Crus57

    Apparently even the replay officials need a breather from Chip’s offense.

  • SteveH

    bah jasons gotta come back to the ball.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i think he was working back to the ball, but peterson just had great coverage

  • Andy124

    Damn, momentum carried him back.

    • BlindChow

      There’s no such thing as momentum!!

      • Andy124

        lol.

      • Crus57

        Take that, Sir Isaac Newton!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    shit. i think cooper’s momentum took him a yard or two short

  • ACViking

    Run a Flip 90.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      love that play

    • SteveH

      Shovel pass time.

  • GEAGLE

    Hahaa cardinals to afraid to use a TO

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i’m OK with them going for this one here.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    yea baby. nice run by mccoy. i like taking djax in motion to clear out the middle of the field.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    oh absolutely DPI there

  • Andy124

    McCoy knows how to find the soft spot in those situations.

  • GEAGLE

    Big BALLS!!! Jurevos mas grande!!! Scared money don’t make money!!
    .,,
    Coooop!! Told Yous powers was a pigeon!!!

  • OregonDucker

    No fear Foles babe.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Refs gave us a call. Something’s not right here.

  • scratcherk

    Give that man an Oscar!

  • Andy124

    Please QB Sneak your 6;6″ QB from under center

    • Andy124

      I mean, please let Foles rack up another touchdown pass,

  • Corry

    YES!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    YEA CELEK

  • Crus57

    Nice patience from Foles waiting for that to develop.

  • OregonDucker

    Man I love this play call!

  • scratcherk

    FOLES GOLD BABY!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    that makes 18

  • T_S_O_P

    Rebirth of the Wolverine. Dawkins would love that

  • SteveH

    Eagles 2 minute drill baby. Our 4th down gets em back for their 4th down.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Wait! Was that good clock management? I’m not sure I know what it looks like as its a rare bird.

    • Crus57

      We had all 3 of our timeouts, after the 2 minute warning!

  • GEAGLE

    TEs and Coop are how you beat this sweet in the gut King Hippo ass defense!

    RESPECT the RAINMAKER!!!

  • SeanofDead

    Excellent clock management by Chip

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i’m thinking the same thing as the announcers are saying the opposite
      O_o

      • deg0ey

        ‘They were lucky to get the pass interference call in the end zone’

        Yeah, let’s completely ignore the fact that Cooper was camped under that for the TD until he got shoved out of the way.

    • BlindChow

      Unless Arizona scores a touchdown before halftime. Then we should have run a couple times first.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        LOL

  • ACViking

    Foles is really becoming an ARTIST out there.

    He’s taken too many hits already. But, wow, love watching him run this offense.

  • nicolajNN

    What is the idea behind having DJax(or another receiver) in motion from the back field?

    • ICDogg

      expose the defense… show if they are in man

    • Eric Carranza

      Figure out man or zone coverage

    • TheRogerPodacter

      are you talking about the 4th down run?
      it could serve as a way to pull some LBs out of the middle of the field to give mccoy more room to run up the middle

      • nicolajNN

        Don’t remember if we used it there, but a few times Jackson has lined up next to Foles then motioned out towards the sideline as the ball is snapped

  • scratcherk

    how is that mismanagement? that was great clock management. run the clock down in case u dont make the 4th down conversion

  • SteveH

    So… Foles gets a passing grade against another good defense so far yes?

    • Andy124

      understatement.

    • GEAGLE

      They fell down…FOles sucks :)

    • BlindChow

      No, the Cardinals were just exposed as frauds.

  • Noel

    That was a gift, but I’ll take it.

  • GEAGLE

    COLLEGE OFFENSE!! COLLEGE OFFENSE!! COLLEGE OFFENSE!!!

  • ACViking

    FOX needs to get a new photo of Foles.

    • GEAGLE

      Yeah one with mother fuckin flames hanging from his throwing hand

      • TheRogerPodacter

        LOL

      • SteveH

        Whoever’s got photoshop skills needs to make this happen.

  • GEAGLE

    Down the ball you bitches

    • OregonDucker

      Are you scared of our D bitches???

      • GEAGLE

        Puppies have BIG PAWS and sharp teeth,,,just wait til next year

  • jshort

    we get the ball 2nd half

  • SteveH

    Foles 15/20 for 175 and 2 scores in the first half. I’ll take it.

    • GEAGLE

      You can’t stop the raaaaain, when it starts to fall oooooh ooooh
      HASHTAG RAINMAKER!!!

  • Andy124

    Regression to the mean is a b!tch. Only a 134.4 rating so far. Knew there was no way he could stay at 152 for another month.

    • jshort

      still 2nd half

  • GEAGLE

    FOles continues to shit on Andrew luck

    • OregonDucker

      Yeah, Luck ain’t here.

    • ACViking

      Luck would gladly trade O-lines and receivers.

      But it’s NOT the system . . . .

      If it were, we’d all be playing QB for the Eagles.

  • ACViking

    Heavy dose of Fitzgerald coming. Especially if Birds take KO in for TD.

    Will be keen to see how Davis handles him . . . status quo or constant bracket.
    ________________

    The Foles pass to Avant, where DJax went in motion from A position . . . Avant needs to come back to that ball better.

    Patrick Peterson is very good at staying right on his man. Revis-like.
    ________________

    Only 2 passes this entire season that I can remember being “interceptible” from Foles: (1) the long, tipped TD to Jackson in GB, and (2) the long pass to Jackson today that Peterson broke up in EZ (or DJ broke up). Can’t remember any others.

    On that pass to DJax in the EZ . . . 58 yards in the air by Foles.

  • Phyxius

    I have to get something out that’s been on my mind for awhile.

    Here it goes: Chip Kelly is human and therefore he can be considered an idiot.

    • Crus57

      What does that make the rest of us?

      • Phyxius

        Idiots as well. :)

    • OregonDucker

      No, Chip is NOT human. His balls are too big.

      • BlindChow

        Shoot, I thought those were implants!

      • jshort

        no wonder he never got married. must come out like a pressure washer

  • xlGmanlx

    Wolff can’t come back soon enough. Chung has looked terrible as the season has gone on.

  • DamonL86

    thats terrible
