PHI 24 , CHI 3 – 2nd Half

Posted: December 22nd, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 483 Comments »

The 1st Half would have been perfect if the Eagles could have kept Chicago off the scoreboard, but alas, my dream of a shutout is gone for another week.

The Eagles are playing lights out. They get the ball to open the 2nd half. Would love to see them get a TD and set the tone for the rest of the game. I don’t even think of resting players until the 4th quarter, and then only if there is a comfortable lead.

  • ICDogg

    McCoy 1,407
    Charles 1,287
    Peterson 1,266
    Alfred Morris 1,213
    Forte 1,208

    • Corry

      I think McCoy has a legitimate shot at 2000 yards next year.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      How far is Shady from the Eagles record? I know its close.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        i think it was somewhere around 1500

      • wallacemnw

        Isn’t it Wilbur Montgomery? Around 1500?

  • ICDogg

    Eagles weren’t flagged once in that first half, as @nslotkinCSN pointed out. Bears one penalty for five yards

    • A_T_G

      That is part of why it felt so fast.

  • Scott J

    The Eagles have bounced back nicely from last week. That Vikings game was an aberration.

  • RobNE

    We are a fourth and 10 stop by the skins this being for the division

    • A_T_G

      Stupid, racist team.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Beautiful.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    excellent catch for djax!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    wow. djax has some great hands today. really plucked that one out of the air.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    goddammit!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      wow. replay is REAL close

  • Corry

    Challenge that!

  • Eric Carranza

    Knee was down

    • TheRogerPodacter

      really hard to say. glad that we don’t have to challenge it. change of possession gets reviewed by the booth.

  • McNabbulousness

    challenge!!!

    • BlindChow

      Automatic review.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Shurmur!!!

  • Andy124

    overturn it!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    in think the fact that it was called a fumble is going to make it hard to overturn….

    • SteveH

      Imo knee is clearly down before ball comes out.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        i think so too, but its about what the refs see and they don’t always see what i do. lol

        • SteveH

          Truth.

      • Anders

        normally I would agree, but this year have been very random in overturns

  • shah8

    Jim Schwartz is the idiot around here! Why the hell is Kelly not aware that you’re not supposed to do that?!

    • SteveH

      At least Kelly has the excuse of being a rookie coach…

  • jshort

    Who wakes up Shummer….just let him snooze

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Last pass before the “fumble” had good zip

  • ACViking

    I thought the NFL got rid of the “stupid coach” rule so they were protected from themselves

    • Anders

      they lose a timeout, but still gets reviewed

      • TheRogerPodacter

        thats better than them just saying “oh well, guess we can’t review it. too bad”

    • Bob Brewer

      They changed it so that the play can be reviewed, but you still get penalized a timeout.

    • Tumtum

      Yeah me too.. or was it a 15yrd penatly before?

      • Bob Brewer

        No. An incorrect challenge meant the play wasn’t reviewed and the call on the field stood.

        • Anders

          it was penalty and no review before

          • BlindChow

            Yeah, there’s no reason for there to be a penalty. Just pick up the flag and tell the coach that the play is automatically reviewed. How does the Coach throwing a flag negatively affect the game in any way?

          • TheRogerPodacter

            a delay of the game? i dunno. i got nothing.

    • Tumtum

      Oooooh yeah its just still reviewable now

  • Bob Brewer

    Get a damn rule book Chip.

  • Iskar36

    Definitely a bad decision by Chip there. May have been a reaction to the missed review at the end of the half, but bad decision either way.

    • Bob Brewer

      The review/lack of review at the end of the half didn’t matter. Eagles needed the call to be right on the field.

      If they reviewed it, Bears essentially got a time out to get Gould on the field anyway.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        yea it took me a while to realize that last part. the refs stop the clock to review and the Bears bring out the FG team regardless of the outcome.

  • Steag209

    Did Kelly throw the flag?

  • jshort

    hehehe

  • Iskar36

    McCoy’s reaction was awesome.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i’ll take the timeout to get the ball back!

    • Eric Carranza

      Yupp

    • TheRogerPodacter

      (yes, i know that we could have gotten the ball back without the timeout, but i’m going to rationalize by saying the timeout just made sure they reviewed it)

  • ACViking

    Stupid coach rule allows review

    • Andy124

      Thank goodness for instant replay ;)

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Right back to McCoy.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    wow, looking at that replay, somebody (TE?) was WIDE open as Foles was scrambling to the otherside of the field lol

    • Don_the_Hun

      It was Jason Avant on the swing pass

    • Andy124

      But do you really want to throw across your body late there? Risky.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        no, i’m not saying that Foles should have thrown it to him. just pointing out that the design of the play got a guy wide open down the field.

        • Andy124

          yup

  • Tumtum

    There is the yellow

    • McNabbulousness

      at least it isn’t in snow

  • ToastJenkins

    lost our rhythm here…get back to the run game

  • ACViking

    All time record for screen passes

    • TheRogerPodacter

      right? this is crazy.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    guh. c’mon Celek. granted, Foles had to get that one up over the defender a little higher than normal

  • Andy124

    Draw?

  • Corry

    BOYKIN!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Wow. Fippity fipp fipp fipp.

    • ICDogg

      Fapping to Fipp?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Donnie Football and the Boyking strike again!

  • McNabbulousness

    yes!

  • Iskar36

    Boykin is sooooo good at downing punts.

  • SteveH

    Loved Chip Kelly’s facial expression after Foles’ triple pump fake past the line of scrimmage scramble.

  • OregonDucker

    This NOT the team we saw last week.

    • Tumtum

      I was thinking about that. What happened last week.

      • OregonDucker

        They got full of themselves and did not respect the Vikings. It was a mental meltdown.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    BTW. Looked it up. Montgomery’s single season rushing record is 1,512. Right now, I believe Shady is at 1,420.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      thanks for looking it up!

  • jshort

    D score would be nice….O seems to b in rut

    • Iskar36

      There you go!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    thats a safety!

    • Tumtum

      We need to win this one..

  • Corry

    safety!

  • McNabbulousness

    come on come on

  • TheRogerPodacter

    review it!

  • McNabbulousness

    throw that red flag

  • Eric Carranza

    Safety safety safety

  • jshort

    safety

  • jshort

    knee was down

  • ACViking

    Thornton is incredible

  • TheRogerPodacter

    thats absolutely a safety.

  • Daz

    when his knee goes down, the ball is nowhere near all the way out!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Can’t get much clearer than that. 2 points. Ced’s the man.

  • Eric Carranza

    Cedric just blew that up from the get go

  • wallacemnw

    Cedric playing his ass off.

  • ACViking

    Talk about explosion thru the gap

  • shah8

    Chicago was just not here to play.

    • BlindChow

      They were here to play the team that played the Vikings last week.

      • shah8

        perhaps

      • SteveH

        Yeah, the resurrected corpses of the ’72 Buccaneers. Weird that the NFL would schedule a game like that.

    • Tumtum

      Just like the Eagles last week. You have to give credit to both sides.

  • SteveH

    We need a nickname for Ced, because I can never remember how to spell his last name. Also because he is good.

    • A_T_G

      How about “Ced?”

      • ICDogg

        ‘Nuf Ced.

    • Tumtum

      The entertainer

    • McNabbulousness

      Jim

  • TheRogerPodacter

    absolutely love the safety dance

  • TheRogerPodacter

    this is crazy. as Ced gets the safety and the players on the field are doing the ‘safety dance’, my roommate is watching hottub time machine in the other room and i hear the song “Safety Dance” start to play.
    Amazing.

    • BlindChow

      Quick, have him play “Touchdown.”

  • A_T_G

    Getting out of the end zone is not Matt’s forte, either.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    LOOK AT THAT HOLE!

    (tee hee hee)

    • McNabbulousness

      sir!

    • Dragon_Eagle

      He said hole.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      sorry, i’m a child.

    • Spooonius

      ha!

    • SteveH

      It was a gigantic gap. Giggity.

  • Daz

    wow. just wow.

  • ICDogg

    Cooooooooooooooooooooooooop

  • CrackSammich

    Announcer: “Look at that hole! … What gigantic gap!”

    *cough*

    • TheRogerPodacter

      glad i’m not the only one!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Bears are doing everything they can to force a fumble. seems like its all they can do at this point.

  • McNabbulousness

    god the o-line looks good

  • ACViking

    Bryce running for his job

  • Corry

    The Bears must have copied our defensive gameplan from last week.

    • jshort

      but we at least stopped the run

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Foles asks for quiet, doesn’t seem to get it.

  • McNabbulousness

    spin cycle!!!!

    • BlindChow

      McCoy hit the circle button.

  • ICDogg

    spinaround

  • wallacemnw

    Sick!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    mccoy… wow. just…. wow.

  • Tumtum

    This is euphoria

  • Eric Carranza

    Shady is unstoppable tonight

  • A_T_G

    The Chicago D looks tired.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      my thoughts exactly. hard to make a form tackle when you are winded. you hit with your shoulder (not as hard as you could) and have weak arm tackles. just like that.

    • GEAGLE

      Shoulda drank their smoothies :)

  • Spooonius

    shady is ridiculous

  • Daz

    Shady seemed to do a “head plant” on Todd’s arse to start that spin!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      must be similar to Celek’s “Helmet Adjusted Turbo Mode”

  • Corry

    Just do this again against Dallas next week. That’s all I’m asking for for Christmas.

  • shah8

    This offense hasn’t really stalled all night. It’s the way it’s supposed to look like, tonight.

    • TommyLawlor

      A thing of beauty.

    • OregonDucker

      Yeah reminds me of my team in Eugene.

    • A_T_G

      That is ideal, yes.

  • ACViking

    4 for 4 in the RZ

  • lilmc

    Pull the starters?

    • Pennguino

      NOOOOOOO.

      • GEAGLE

        Chip ain’t pulling the starters…he is enjoying the party

    • TommyLawlor

      In the 4th Qtr.

      • Anders

        The RBs carries has been split nicely already.

    • Spooonius

      Absolutelly not

    • Tumtum

      These bears can score quickly

  • Bob Brewer

    I don’t understand this play calling. The Eagles are up and they still are hiking the ball with 15 seconds left. This is bad, bad coaching. This is elementary stuff that Chip Kelly should know and he doesn’t. This doesn’t work in the NFL.

    • Spooonius

      idiot.

      • Neil

        I know, right?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i realize the sarcasm in there, but i really hope they don’t take their foot off the pedal until we are up by 30+ in the 4th quarter.

    • ICDogg

      Ashley Fox has something to say, I’m sure

    • Tumtum

      Real quote?

      • TheRogerPodacter

        its hard to tell, isnt it?

        • GEAGLE

          No seriously, is he really saying that?

          • TheRogerPodacter

            i think thats a paraphrase of a game earlier in the year. he’s not covering this game

          • Andy124

            This.

    • SteveH

      Furthermore, Chip Kelly should respect the game more. This is the way its been done for 217 years, doesn’t he know that? Who does he think he is? Some kind of knowledge guy? With his plans? I just don’t get it.

    • A_T_G

      Repeated head traumas are a scary thing.

    • jshort

      glad i listen to radio

  • Eric Carranza

    My neck hurts n my legs r asleep……. I haven’t moved since our first score lol

    • TheRogerPodacter

      taking one for the team!

    • jshort

      it’s ok to move now….i started moving around 5 min ago

      • Eric Carranza

        I’m not taking that chance lol

        • jshort

          always keep one knee crossed, pointing in the direction we’re going

  • BlindChow

    They’ve been terrific on kickoffs.

    • Spooonius

      i was just thinking that.

    • GEAGLE

      Very awesome to see,,,

      Donnie Longball and Boykin are a WEAPON!!!

      Ced Boogie is NO JOKE!!

      Btw, anyone still care to debate whether Cary and Brad are starting next year? Lol

  • GEAGLE

    “Are you not entertained?..SPANIARD SPANIARD SPANIARD!!!”
    ..
    Foles is a Gladiator!

  • CrackSammich

    Time for a pick.

    • Corry

      Six.

    • Daz

      nearly a strip-sack…

      • TheRogerPodacter

        well i guess it was, right? we just didn’t recover.

        • A_T_G

          Yeah, it is not as common as people think for the stripper to get their hands on the balls.

  • Andy124

    Kendriks!

    • GEAGLE

      He been playing LIGHTS OUT the past month…and all the fool fans who talked trash about him all year cause Wags and Burfict played well sooner…smh

      • TheRogerPodacter

        his coverage skills are still a little lacking, but i like the fact that they are using his speed to rush the qb a little bit more!
        i have faith that he’ll get better in coverage as time goes on. he’ll play smarter and rely less on his speed than on instinct.

        • GEAGLE

          Last year was the first time he ever played man coverage…No worries, he will grow into a well rounded STUD…I have no doubts

      • Anders

        Love watching Kendricks becoming a playmaker in front of our eyes.

        • GEAGLE

          It was only a matter of time brother

  • TheRogerPodacter

    another sack for Kendricks. wow. he came to play today.

  • McNabbulousness

    we want dallas chant?

  • BlindChow

    The best part about how great they look is knowing the Dallas players, coaches, and fans are all watching, too.

  • ToastJenkins

    they look like a team that knows the division is there for them to take…next week should be fantastic

  • SteveH

    Seriously though, the eff is wrong with Chicago? They almost seem shell shocked right now. Just chuck it up to Jefferey and Marshall every play and they’d be in better shape than they are now.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Do we see Vick and McCown tonight?

  • OregonDucker

    Every coach on the team deserves a bonus.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    bah!!!! seems like an INT and not a fumble. dammit Celek!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      hmm. after the replay i’m thinking fumble. sigh.

      • Anders

        That is a fumble

  • Andy124

    WTF CELEK!!!

  • Corry

    The hell was that?

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Window…

    • TheRogerPodacter

      time for the defense to close it!

  • CrackSammich

    My bad for not specifying who would have the int.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      it looks like its going down as an fumble on Celek, not an INT for Foles.

  • Corry

    Cutler got clocked again.

  • SteveH

    Might be the first thing that has gone wrong all night.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn. Meco almost had that one thrown into his hands haha

  • SteveH

    The Bears should just quit. They’re a mess right now.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice! good time to take a timeout. think about going for it and punt it instead!

  • A_T_G

    So catching passes is not Matt’s for… Ah, screw it.

    • ICDogg

      This bit reminds me of an old MAD book I had, I think “The MAD Adventures of Captain Klutz”, which had about 6 versions of “It is a 10 floor building. It used to have 11 floors, but that’s another story.”

  • Tumtum

    I really didn’t think this defense could play this well. Very impressed.

    • GEAGLE

      This isn’t even their ceiling!! They have plenty more room to grow

  • CrackSammich

    Foles 21 for 25. That’s 3 throw aways and a Celek drop. Not really taking any risks tonight, though it’s still damn impressive.

    • sonofdman

      That is because he is not running a real offense and he is just button-mashing. :)

    • jshort

      that was a catch and fumble

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Pink D coming.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    1) holding,
    2) intentional grounding

    • TheRogerPodacter

      that was supposed to be on the guy who grabbed Barwin…… wtf?

  • Tumtum

    Hat trick!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Trent Cole having a MONSTER game

  • Eric Carranza

    3 sacks for cole tonight already

  • GEAGLE

    My defense is just crack-a-Lackin tonight!!!

  • Corry

    is it just me, or is this game moving VERY quickly?

    • GEAGLE

      Too quicly

    • A_T_G

      That is because I don’t have to get up for work in the morning.

  • GEAGLE

    Those 3 points are getting on my fuckin nerves

  • Andy124

    well poop. The looked too much like the Dallas game winning td.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    almost a horsecollar tackle there. : /

  • TheRogerPodacter

    bah! come on defense!!!!

    • GEAGLE

      Redzone turnover…u know how we do

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i’m thinking theyre just going to throw a jump ball to either side of the endzone

    • TheRogerPodacter

      almost….

  • CrackSammich

    lol.

  • GEAGLE

    Grrrrrrr

    • A_T_G

      You sound like a Bear.

      • GEAGLE

        :(
        Dude, take that back lol…NOT COOL!!!

  • Iskar36

    No offensive PI for pushing off?

    • Andy124

      They only call that against Avant.

      • Anders

        and Celek

  • Spooonius

    a little push off

  • Eric Carranza

    He pushed off

  • TheRogerPodacter

    “good job by Brandon Marshall pushing off” hmmmmmmmmmmm

    • Anders

      he is right

      • TheRogerPodacter

        i hope someone goes over the all 22 and sees if the WRs on the other side of the field really were moving at the snap or not…

        • Anders

          They stood still

  • TheRogerPodacter

    and there is your patrick chung coverage excellence play of the day

  • ACViking

    That looked like last week

    • Anders

      I had no dream of keeping this offense to just 3 points trough a whole game. Simply just not enough talent.

      • ACViking

        Urgency seemed to sag

  • CrackSammich

    Aren’t receivers allowed to push off within 5 yds of the line?

    • Anders

      No

    • Eric Carranza

      Doubt it’s allowed in the end one

    • TheRogerPodacter

      not when the ball is in the air

  • SteveH

    If I was Billy Davis I’d tell our receivers they can push off tonight.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      right? the refs are allowing a lot of contact on both sides of the ball. that should be good news for our CBs who usually play extra physical.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    how about that? the ball falls off the tee on the surprise onsides kick?! wowwwwwwwww

  • A_T_G

    Dear League,

    You are lucky. I will not be sending my request for an asterisks… this time. Consider yourself warned, however. Consider yourself warned.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i consider that the karmic equalizer from the play near the end of the first half. lol

  • Corry

    How about nothing stupid on this drive?

  • GEAGLE

    Bears fans are getting to see what a real offensive genius looks like!! Sorry Trestman, your season was on the line, and you got owned!

    Fitzgerald/Floyd
    Calvin/burleson
    marshall/Jeffries

    Na na na naaa, hey hey hey…GOODBYE!!!
    .
    Dez and Terrence are next to get LOCKED DOWN

    • TheRogerPodacter

      JimmyK tweeted something the other day that outside of Desean Jackson, our defense has faced all of the top 8 WRs this year.

      edit:
      Jimmy Kempski ‏@JimmyKempski 19 Dec
      Not including DeSean Jackson, the Eagles have already faced, or will face, the top 8 WRs in the NFC.

      • GEAGLE

        Sadly. Fans haven’t realized they are already watching the starting corners of the new era of eagles football

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Gash.

    • GEAGLE

      Bryyyyyyyyyyce

  • Kristopher Cebula

    Okay eagles. let’s stay away from short drives and passive defense

  • CrackSammich

    Where was that linebacker going? he looped around to the outside and Shady ran right into the gap he vacated. Not like he didn’t see Shady with the ball.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Glad to see Brown getting carries & yards. But is anyone else nervous about a fumble?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i am. but he has been pretty good this year. and the Bears have been going for it this game.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    offense is in the “everyone look at the sidelines together to burn the clock” mode

  • Andy124

    way to go casey!

  • BlindChow

    Holy shit I can’t stop laughing.

    • CrackSammich

      Consider this my second up vote.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Chris Polk is such a finisher. i love it.

    • GEAGLE

      Bruiser….he is like a boulder going down hill when he gets going

  • Corry

    At this point, the Bears are now ranked 34th against the run.

  • Andy124

    Nick leads another touchdown drive with zero incompletions. ;)

    • TheRogerPodacter

      did he even have any attempts? i dont remember. lol

      • Andy124

        I don’t think so.

  • Eric Carranza

    Polk td new backup rb lol

  • ToastJenkins

    yup – they got nothing for this run game

  • shah8

    Chicago Bears just doesn’t have the ability to stop any runs.

    • GEAGLE

      Zito

      • ICDogg

        Isn’t it Zitto?

        • shah8

          If he wants to be puerile, let him be so.

        • GEAGLE

          Not worth fighting with autocorrect over a troll

          • shah8

            You’re the one with the kindergarten mentality, you know. Only little kids think that using insults in a foreign language is subtle. But then, you’ve never been a subtle or discerning person, hmm?

            So go on, call me all the names in the Italian language you can think of. If it makes you feel better, it certainly isn’t at my expense.

          • GEAGLE

            Blah blah blah….ti piace chiachiera.

            I made it to Kindergarden, 4 words in lol

  • jshort

    Merry Christmas!!!

  • GEAGLE

    Wow, that was a pretty play, pretty blocking, pretty running..
    ..
    Hey. Mr. Polk…………GET SOME!!!!!

    • OregonDucker

      Next time wear a condom!

      • GEAGLE

        Lol..Chris Polk gonna get him some STRANGE tonight :)

  • Pennguino

    LEAAAAAAAAAACH!!!!!!!!!!!! I still need 30 points from Foles, Mccoy, Coop

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Complete game, please.

  • Ark87

    This right here is how you finish a game

  • Iskar36

    Time to shut it down for Foles, McCoy, DeSean?

  • SteveH

    Bears go home. You obviously don’t want to hang tonight.

  • BC1968

    The cowboys squeezed by a lousy team today, while we are beating the crap out of a team that just shredded them a few weeks ago. Still, none of that means anything now.

  • A_T_G

    That was a pretty terrible tackle attempt by their safety. (#47?)

  • CrackSammich

    Already at 226 rushing. This is going to get so much uglier by the end.

  • Steag209

    Anyone know Foles’ current QB Rating for the game?

    • Corry

      A lot.

    • Eric Carranza

      Most likely in the 140’s

    • Daz

      131.7

      • Andy124

        ^This.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    that was a monster ST tackle from Polk!

  • BlindChow

    Man, I bet Chicago was really expecting something different on kickoffs after watching the game last week!

    • sonofdman

      This they will go back to the pooch kickoff strategy again next week for Dallas? The cowboys would never expect it.

  • jshort

    td’s make Polk a better ST player

  • ACViking

    5 for 5 InRZ

    • sonofdman

      you sure are!

  • jshort

    anyone want to see Vick

    • Iskar36

      I’d rather see Barkley, just for the sake of seeing if he has improved at all, but either way, I think it’s time to start considering pulling key starters.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        i think he’s inactive today.

        • Iskar36

          I think you’re right actually. Then bring in Vick. Just make sure Foles, McCoy, and DeSean are healthy for Dallas.

      • BlindChow

        Let’s run all Brad Smith plays.

    • Iskar36

      Forget it… let’s just have the D score and keep their offense on the field.

      • phillychuck

        Lottery numbers, please?

  • Daz

    Bears have 21 yards rushing for the game. That’s ridiculous!

  • CrackSammich

    6 Eagles with rushing yards. Brad Smith is the only one with an average lower than 6.0 per attempt.

    • Andy124

      Excellent.

  • OregonDucker

    These players LOVE to play for Chip!

    • GEAGLE

      He gets so much out of them,,.Desean used to be a Homerun hitter, Chip practically turned him into a volume workhorse WR and NO ONE thougght Desean was capable of that

  • livingonapear

    Ok, run the ball, that’s cool

  • Dragon_Eagle

    McCown vs. Cutler all week in Chicago. Nice to see that stuff happen to other teams.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    after that last run, forte now has more rushing yards in this game than cutler.

  • Andy124

    sconces!

    • Corry

      bounced off Marshall lol

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice breakup for Sconces!

    • Daz

      Shady definitely initiates that spin by bouncing off Todd’s back/butt!

  • planetx1971

    Polk really has made a case for himself of late to my eyes. With specific nods to this game & the lions of course!

  • Ark87

    It’s so sweet to see a cb square up an tackle a rb

  • sonofdman

    sweet!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    BOYKING!

  • Corry

    Hey, why not a pick 6.

  • Daz

    there’s the pick-6 you were asking for!

  • ToastJenkins

    yup that will just about do it…

  • Eric Carranza

    Boykin pick 6!

  • GEAGLE

    Hahahahahahaha there’s YOUR defense with the cherry on top

  • jshort

    What can you say!!

  • Pennguino

    MAN-KIN!!!!!!!!

  • sonofdman

    Daryl Johnson is very concerned that that pick 6 will hurt the Eagles time of possession.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i wish i could upvote this more than once

    • livingonapear

      Pssssst

      I upvoted, but it’s Johnston.

      • GEAGLE

        Down voted you for respecting him enough to spell his name right

        • Andy124

          lol

    • GEAGLE

      I wish I could sit down with moose and Phil sims and they were forced to answer my questions on national TV…..

  • Andy124

    Backup time.

  • OregonDucker

    Wow what a Defense!

    • GEAGLE

      Yes sir

  • SteveH

    Boykin is such a monster, 5 picks and he’s only on the field half the time.

    • Anders

      That is the craziest part.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        and he still has room to get better.

        edit: not criticizing him, just pointing out he’s young and should only get better.

      • Eric Carranza

        Coming of limited practice this week due to concussion

        • GEAGLE

          He has downed ATLEAST 6 balls inside the 5

        • BlindChow

          OMG, it’s just like Foles! Gets a concussion, comes back a savant!

  • BlindChow
  • Tumtum

    Either Cutler was really careless or Boykin really fooled him with his back turned. Can’t wait for DGR

    • livingonapear

      Kendricks rushed the throw.

  • Eric Carranza

    Cutler benched lol

    • GEAGLE

      Ha

    • shah8

      doesn’t do any good.

  • CrackSammich

    I think Clay Matthews makes more commercials than plays at this point.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    who gets credit for that sack?

    • CrackSammich

      Do they give credit for .25 of a sack?

    • Anders

      Curry

  • A_T_G

    So, what do you think? Let McCown throw for three touchdowns here? Just so we can enjoy the carnage it creates over the next few months.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i would only want to bring that kind of carnage onto dallas. ok, maybe the redskins

  • GEAGLE

    ahahahaha McCown…GET SOME…turf in your mouth

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Johnson really misjudged that punt. could have had some more yards on that if he wasn’t going backwards.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Put Vick in!! Sit Shady and DJax!!!

    • A_T_G

      Yep, or Barkley.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        Barkley is inactive. ; )

  • Spooonius

    ahhh Damaris..

  • Corry

    I’d say we could run the last 6:24 off the game clock, but with the way the Bears play run defense, we’ll probably score in 2 minutes.

    • Eric Carranza

      U we’re saying lol

    • Dragon_Eagle

      You were way the f off. Less than 10 seconds.

      • Corry

        I thought he’d trip.

        • Andy124

          Turf monster benched on account of the blowout.

    • phillychuck

      Lottery numbers, please.

  • OregonDucker

    Put in Vick and have some fun.

    • ICDogg

      He’s coming in…

      • shah8

        And BB takes him back out.

  • CrackSammich

    When I was a kid, my brother and his three very large friends would chase me around and tried to tackle me. That’s what Damaris Johnson looks like out there on returns. Dude is going to get murdered.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      thats the kind of story i wish i could hear broadcast in the game.

  • ICDogg

    Foles finishes 21-for-25 passing for 230 yards and two TDs. Passer rating of 131.4

    • Andy124

      Mashed all the right buttons.

    • SteveH

      Best part of his game tonight was taking care of the ball, made lots of good decisions.

  • ACViking

    So much talk over the years about what a great screen team the Eagles were under Reid. They may be better under Kelly

  • CrackSammich

    Sit Vick. Put in Brad Smith.

    • Spooonius

      hahahahahahahahah

  • ToastJenkins

    LOL

  • TheRogerPodacter

    dammit bryce brown. youre killing our time of possession!!!!

    • sonofdman

      You beat me to it!

  • Corry

    SEE?! THE RUN GAME IS BETTER WITH VICK IN THERE!

    • Pennguino

      bwahahaha

    • jshort

      perfect post…lmao

    • SteveH

      Evil genius.

  • Ark87

    Omg, leave some for Dallas!

  • A_T_G

    This team has no idea how to run out the clock!

    • Stephen Stempo

      They’re good at running at the clock.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Julian Vandervelde sighting!

  • lilmc

    Last year at this time was so depressing. This team is fun to watch again. Thanks Chip!

    • Spooonius

      amen to that!!!!

  • Spooonius

    kneel downs perhaps? i dont think we can get any time off the clock otherwise

  • BlindChow

    Onside kick!

    • BlindChow

      Aww.

  • Eric Carranza

    300+ rushing yards on the day?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i’ll admit. i was a little scared on that return.

  • bbbulka

    VICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • CrackSammich

    Possesion was so quick that they didn’t even go to commercial.

  • GEAGLE

    Hey Bryce……..
    GET SOME!!!

  • Daz

    this is my one game for the year (so far) being able to watch live, so forgive me for being selfish, but screw clock management!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    looks like backups vs backups at this point

    • Corry

      Yep, it’s a preseason game at this point.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      though we don’t have enough CBs so some are still playing. saw Fletcher in there.

  • SteveH

    its a preseason game at this point.

  • sonofdman

    By the way, I think we now have proof of how much Vick helps the running game. Look at the per carry average when Vick is in the game!

    • A_T_G

      We should bench Foles and Shady based on those numbers.

      • sonofdman

        obviously

      • sonofdman

        I’m not sure now. Somehow, against Chicago’s terrible run defense, Vick ended up with negative rushing yards. WTF?

  • Pennguino

    All phases. All quarters. Great game Eagles! Merry Christmas to ALL and to all a good night

    • TheRogerPodacter

      hopefully christmas will come to this team next week!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Ha! 51 TDs for leetle Peyton. Dat is nuttink. Wait until Nick gets full season starting.

    • Anders

      Foles is only on his way to 40 TDs over 1 full year

      • Andy124

        As a virtual rookie

        • TheRogerPodacter

          i’ll take it!

        • Anders

          yea, but he is terrible and the Eagles offense has been figured out and is a gimmick offense

          • BlindChow

            I hardly saw any probing tonight.

          • Andy124

            Should have been watching Cartman during the South Park series premier then.

  • BlindChow

    Kelly’s first season will end with a winning record.

    • Andy124

      The flip side: NFL has handed him as many losses this year as he had in his HC career at Oregon. #figuredout

  • CrackSammich

    Mccoy has 133 rushing, Bryce at 115. Let’s see how close we can get Polk.

  • jshort

    Wondering what Foles can improve on for next week

    • Andy124

      Had twice as many incompletions as tds. Has to work on that.

    • A_T_G

      He was almost invisible on kick coverage.

      • A_T_G

        On the other hand, if you could make yourself ACTUALLY invisible, man, you could light someone up.

        • Andy124

          And get away with a block below the knees.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i’d like to see him not take so many sacks, but a few of those were just pulling the ball down instead of throwing it away.

      • Anders

        I rather he takes sacks than throw ints. Sacks make you live another play and with a great punter, there is good chance for flipping field position.

        • TheRogerPodacter

          yea, i understand that side of it. i’d just prefer to not lose any yards. Foles seems to understand he has a little bit of room to maneuver so i’m ok with him just pulling it down and trying to get anything positive.

          i just don’t like the idea of giving away free hits on the qb for minimal to no gain or a loss and risk a fumble.

          that said, i think he still played it safe and thats all that really matters.

          • Anders

            yea, I agree, I think Foles could speed up some of his reads. Also some of them today was just the Bears busting the play.

  • shah8

    And that’s the game, a few kneels, now.

    • Corry

      I’m somewhat surprised the kneel downs aren’t going for touchdowns.

  • jshort

    That’s a pro bowl kneel down

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i’m kind of happy to see the backup qb come in to kneel so Foles doesn’t lose rushing yards. (don’t care that Vick is losing rushing yards on the year we know he can do it haha)

    • Anders

      but that is ruining the Vick/Brown ypc

  • ICDogg

    Well, that was something.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    we just held matt forte to 29 yards rushing on 9 attempts. wow.

    • Corry

      That was the defense playing with some pride. they should have after giving up 48 to the frickin’ Vikings.

    • Anders

      Outside of that TD drive, this defense was rock solid and they even did some good things on that drive

      • TheRogerPodacter

        did the bears TD come after the Celek fumble?

        • Anders

          I think so, but we got 2 3rd down stops, but couldnt stop them on 4th down

          • TheRogerPodacter

            i wanted to just point out that they only gave up the TD on a short field, but i think the turnover was deep in their side so it wasn’t toooo short. haha

  • Eric Carranza

    I can finally move lol next week imma be in the same spot

    • TheRogerPodacter

      thanks for doing your part! lol

  • TheRogerPodacter

    kendricks “go bears” comment is confusing. thankfully costas is here to clarify. lol.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    we beat the cowboys, we keep them out of the playoffs and they finish 8-8, no winning record. i’d like that.

  • ICDogg
    • TheRogerPodacter

      how’d you get the tweet to show up so nicely here? i copy/pasted earlier and it looked like garbage. lol

      • Anders

        embed tweet, delete the last line with the <script=

        • ICDogg

          that’s what I used to do but there is a better way now

          • Anders

            The way you do it, it wont show right away for me. My way one can atleast still see the text

          • TheRogerPodacter

            that is true, i only saw a link at first. it showed up when i refreshed the page.

      • ICDogg

        1. get the embed code.
        2. grab only the status URL from it. That begins with https and has the word statuses in it and is between quotes.

        • TheRogerPodacter

          thanks! trying it out now…

    Chip is awesome:Asked about the challange: “I screwed up”. Love it.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      it would be awesome if there was a gif like this that could apply to the outcome of every possible NFL game. haha

  • TheRogerPodacter

    the last sack on the muffed snap, i dont see that anyone got credit for that on NFL.com. i wonder if they just call it a tackle for loss?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    also, Tommy. are you upset that Mccoy didn’t get 25 carries? : P

    • Anders

      I loved how much Brown and Polk saw the field, even before the game was out of hand.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    eagles need 5 plays of 20+ yards to match the Greatest Show on Turf’s total of 96.

  • Ark87

    Dammit birds, how am I supposed to sleep now, looks like an extra lathargic csse of the Mondays for me tommorow

    • Andy124

      sleep? what is that?

  • BlindChow

    Well, Kelly now has the tie-breaker over Trestman in the Coach of the Year seeding. Too bad the Eagles played KC so early in the year…

    • Tumtum

      I still think AR gets it.

      • anon

        think when you peak matters. it’ll be tough though ck had way more naysayers, so i think he should get it.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    eagles defense allowed 11 points and scored 9 of their own. impressive! (thanks BGN! lol)
