CHI at PHI – 1st Half

Posted: December 22nd, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 362 Comments »

The game won’t affect the NFC East, but it will affect seeding. Chip Kelly is going to play to win.

The only change I might make is to mix in Shady’s backups a bit more.

Go Eagles!!!


  • McNabbulousness

    first! is that still a thing?

    • Corry

      You win Igglesblitz!

      • McNabbulousness

        HA-ZAH!

    • SteveH

      Congratulations, you’re now a journalist.

  • SteveH

    If Peyton Manning were to break the TD passing record, but no one was around to hear it, would it make a sound?

    • McNabbulousness

      with the offensive explosion/super inflated stats era, the ? is who cares. and yeah, i think it’d make a sound

      • SteveH

        People cared when Peyton broke it the first time and when Brady broke that one. *shrug*

  • SteveH

    Briggs in, that’s not ideal.

    • Corry

      If we go warp speed on O he should get gassed pretty quickly though.

    • BlindChow

      His being out played a significant part in the Bears being so bad against the run.

  • Eric Carranza

    Good an actual kickoff

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Good start. Kick to corner with good coverage.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    was that brad smith with the ST tackle?

    • Corry

      Yes, #16.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        cool, thanks. saw a number in the teens, wasn’t sure if that was him or someone else!

  • Corry

    Yes! excellent start for the D!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Shoot that arrow, Trent!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    COOOOOOOLEEEEEE

  • McNabbulousness

    trent cole baby!

  • Eric Carranza

    The hunter does it again

  • TheRogerPodacter

    that was awesome! wow. he’s really coming on late in this season.

  • ToastJenkins

    attaboy Trent…poor Forte lol

    • TommyLawlor

      Bizarre blocking scheme.

  • McNabbulousness

    kelce with the santa hat, nice

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice start for mccoy!

  • SteveH

    oof, so much for Forte being one of the best pass protecting backs in the league. He got destroyed there.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    kinda wanted him to get 20 just to say its another play of 20+ yards : /

  • McNabbulousness

    FOOOOOLLLLLLEEEEESSSSSS!

  • ToastJenkins

    great block by Shady there…look at Foles go lol

  • TheRogerPodacter

    mccoy doing a good job so far of just heading upfield to get what he can get.

    • Corry

      Yeah I’m liking that. Do the dancing when you’re into the 2nd level.

  • SeanofDead

    Foles speed looked adequate there

  • TheRogerPodacter

    COOPER!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Eric Carranza

    Cooper!

  • Andy124

    TOUCHDOWN!!!

  • McNabbulousness

    fly eagles fly, coop with grab!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i thought chicago had that very well defended, but Foles really bought some time and found cooper at the last second

  • SeanofDead

    Who says you can’t throw across your body????!!!!

  • ToastJenkins

    woot woot…what a great toss

  • TheRogerPodacter

    doot doot doodoo

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Ho Ho Ho!! St. Nick!!

  • SteveH

    You can’t defend Nick Foles’ speed.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      are you watching the game on a delay? you’re commenting about plays that seem to be a few plays ago. not trying to talk trash or anything, just curious. if everyone else is, i’ll put my slingbox on pause for a bit to get in sync. i feel bad talking about plays that others might not have seen yet!

      • SteveH

        I just put the NBC loop on live so… I’m as close as I’m gonna get ;)

  • McNabbulousness

    whew, glad to see henery make that extra pt. was afraid he didn’t have the leg strength to get behind that kick

  • shah8

    Only got started on the game right when the TD happened!

    Good start!

  • Teehee

    Nice pass Folesy!

  • ICDogg

    Cooper’s 8th TD this season

  • shah8

    And a TO, too!

  • Eric Carranza

    Woooooooo

  • Dragon_Eagle

    He he he!! Ho ho ho!!

  • McNabbulousness

    turnover baby!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    FLETCHER!!!! who says our starting CBs shouldn’t play STs? (i dont know anybody, but it seems a little surprising to me lol)

  • Corry

    Good rip by Fletcher!

  • Westport_Johnny

    Sconces

  • McNabbulousness

    big shot towards the endzone, lets do this

  • McNabbulousness

    ertzy!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    wow. Foles…. just…. nice job. lol

  • Corry

    Good scramble drill by Ertz

  • ToastJenkins

    Nick seems a little pumped up for Sunday night

  • TheRogerPodacter

    NICE play by foles to throw that one into the stands. something went wrong from the start on that play

    • Corry

      Looked like it was meant for DeSean, but I don’t know if he couldn’t get off the jam or he thought it was a run.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    YEA MCCOY!

  • GEAGLE

    Is that FOles or Steve young? FOLSY BABY!!!

  • McNabbulousness

    shady!!!!

  • Eric Carranza

    Whoop whoop shady td

  • shah8

    Game looks out of hand, already!

    • GEAGLE

      Zito coglione

    • TheRogerPodacter

      too early! we haven’t seen much of chicago’s offense yet. i will say that our offense seems to be clicking so far.

  • GEAGLE

    COOP there it IS!!

  • SteveH

    I hope we shit in the bears’ soup tonight with nothing really on the line for us. Too many painful losses to Chicago over the years. Anyone else remember the Matt Schoebel game?

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Never mention that name again. How about Rexie driving 98 yards on us at the end of the game. ***shivers***

    • TheRogerPodacter

      haha i remember a LOT of Chicago games. or rather, i wish i could forget a lot of Chicago games…

    • Corry

      Never heard of the guy. Don’t know what you’re referring to.

  • Pennguino

    Complete game today. All 4 quarters, ST, Offense and Defense. Lets destroy them as a warm up to killing Dallas

    • GEAGLE

      BOOTS to ASSES!!!
      ,..
      Make Cutler do the Eli face

  • GEAGLE

    Thornton is a beast

  • TheRogerPodacter

    thats excellent D from Thornton!

  • SeanofDead

    Shed dat shit Thorton!

  • McNabbulousness

    barwins hair, nice

  • Corry

    After seeing what was left of the turf in Washington and looking at the Linc, the grounds crew in Philly do a magnificent job.

    • McNabbulousness

      gotta keep that tarp on her

  • TheRogerPodacter

    now Cox gets his turn shedding a block and making a tackle

    • GEAGLE

      He did…right after Ced

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    May I just say that the first td pass was a “window” pass…

    • SteveH

      no, because that means you’re biased for Nick Foles and hate Michael Vick.

  • Tumtum

    Wth is on Ceds face

  • BlindChow

    Two 3 and outs?!

    • McNabbulousness

      reminds me of my first marriage

    • SteveH

      I’m convinced the Vikings spiked the Eagles drinks with Nyquil.

      • McNabbulousness

        jamarcus russell must be involved

    • GEAGLE

      Yup, why did last weeks defense fool you into thinking we weren’t thE TRUTH? :)

    • A_T_G

      Better than a six and out, but not as good as six one and outs.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Chung with good pass coverage? well i’ll be…

  • GEAGLE

    Chung hit the guy on the other team!!!!

  • Corry

    Chung did something positive! The football gods favor us (for now)!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ugh. c’mon djax. upfield. upfield. upfield!

    • ICDogg

      I think he just lost his balance there, but yeah.

  • shah8

    Tressman’s playcalling is a little wierd to me. Interior runs? now?

    • SteveH

      Could be doing that thing where we expect him to throw because of how shitty our pass D was last week to try and catch us off guard. Only thing that makes sense.

  • OregonDucker

    I just woke up or did I? I must be dreaming…

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I’m really glad Trestman only watched last year’s game film. Seems he’s trying to gash the wide-9 up the middle.

  • McNabbulousness

    boy that worked, stop doing that bullshit wildcat

    • BlindChow

      This is actually the perfect game to experiment on offense.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        yea, i’m not hating that right now. lets get it some trial time.

        • McNabbulousness

          sorry guys, just not a fan. stick with the offense that is efficiently moving the ball right now

      • Andy124

        I like it in that field position.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    love the diving catch from Celek!

  • ICDogg

    Foles with the Worm Burner

    • SteveH

      Foles could never beat Mcnabb in worm burners, should stop trying.

      • ICDogg

        Hey, if he can beat RGIII in rushing yards…

        • Andy124

          Nice.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    jesus. mccoy is just unbelievable.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    McCoy is just amazing to watch. I know, the obvious, but still..

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i love that he just ran the guy over at the end of it.

  • McNabbulousness

    good lord shady with moves on top of moves

  • Corry

    That’s gotta be the most frustrating thing in the world. You think you got McCoy dead to rights and then your’e suddenly grasping at air.

  • Corry

    I swear Brown’s worst enemy is the turf.

    • BlindChow

      If that was the sideline he would have made it…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice hard running from bryce brown.

  • ICDogg

    heh

  • SteveH

    Brown trips too much to play running back. Seriously.

  • McNabbulousness

    mccoy, no doubt

  • Eric Carranza

    Fake injuries starting already?

    • Pennguino

      He looked hurt as son as he hit McCoy

      • Eric Carranza

        If so hope he’s alright

  • TheRogerPodacter

    the way Conte is shaking his head, i dont think this is a ‘fake injury to catch some breath’

    • SteveH

      His eyes looked a little glazed on that close up yeah.

    • Corry

      Yeah, looks like he got his bell rung

  • TheRogerPodacter

    since we have nothing to talk about during the commercial break, i’d love to see some offseason story about all of the injuries to opposing defenders. at the beginning of the season, we all expected them to be ‘fake’ injuries just to allow the defense to catch their breath, but i really suspect it is just the opposite.

    • SteveH

      There were a few faked ones during the season but not as many as I thought there might be.

  • A_T_G

    I know the thinking behind in, but I wince every time we boo an injury stoppage, just waiting for the next chapter in the horrible Philly fans saga.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      yea, to be fair, the fans don’t get an instant replay slo mo version of the guy getting hurt. but i really wish that we could all gather as fans and not boo until the guy comes back on the field lol

    • Corry

      Yeah. Bob Costas reminded everyone we booed Santa decades ago.

  • ICDogg

    woot woot

  • shah8

    Unless Chicago really plays tighter, this game is over already, like Bal-NE

    • shah8

      uh, yeah, GAME OVER, man… GAME OVER

      • Andy124

        If I believed in jinxes…

        • shah8

          not trying to jinx. Chicago doesn’t apparently have the horses on defense. And unless we see an unlikely meltdown…

  • McNabbulousness

    ground control to major wright, mccoy’s got another first down

    • ConcussedFB

      Your killin’ it tonite.

  • Pennguino

    who was that running a cross in the middle wide open?
    on Shady’s screen

  • TheRogerPodacter

    jesus. i swear that everytime bryce brown gets the ball he has a pile of defenders in his face. lol

    • Anders

      yea and he is not Shady, so he cant really gets yards

  • TheRogerPodacter

    CELEK!!!!!!!!!!

  • McNabbulousness

    nobody within 5 yards of him, wow

  • GEAGLE

    Emperor RAINMAKER Chicago punk bitches

  • Corry

    Man…don’t show everything Chip! Save some for Dallas!

  • ToastJenkins

    oh what a great route combo by the TEs

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i really hate the ‘pick’ plays, but only when the other team runs them. haha

    • SteveH

      lol. This.

    • Anders

      I hated that AR never really used them here.

  • shah8

    Now let’s see Trestman do the whole run into the teeth thang again…

  • Dragon_Eagle

    This is fun.

  • OregonDucker

    Some games I am just in AWE of this team. Keep the pedal to the metal boys!

    • SteveH

      When this offense is clicking its very impressive.

  • SteveH

    Maybe we should pretend we have nothing to play for next week. It seems to work for us.

    • ICDogg

      yep

    • A_T_G

      With how young the team is, and how much fun they normally seem to have, there might be some truth to this.

    • McNabbulousness

      we’re playing for potential playoff seeding

  • Pennguino

    Can Foles, Coop, Shady and Forte get me 100 points? Make it rain Foles. Need Cooper to get at least 3 TD’s today or Shady to catch a few TD’s

  • McNabbulousness

    feel like quest love on that commercial, “you guys want to hit this house party, its in Thailand.”
    oh yeah!
    eagles first quarter so far
    oh yeah!

  • ICDogg

    Packers fans are going nuts

  • GEAGLE

    It didn’t rain tonight like it was supposed to, so FOles took matter into his own hands,,

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Foles: 7/9 (2 incs were throw aways) for 91 yds, 2 TDS, and 10 yds rushing with 1:30 left in 1st quarter.

    • GEAGLE

      He has 16 fantasy points already lol..shady has 15

  • GEAGLE

    And FOles and Shady officially just won me my 3rd fantasy championship in a row!!!! Thank you Chip! and Folesy baby

    • Dragon_Eagle

      I’ve got Foles & Jackson going now, about to claim my 2nd championship in 3 seasons.

      • GEAGLE

        Lol…this year we turned my league into a keeper league…I get to keep two players lol, guess who they are lol

    • A_T_G

      I was the top scoring team in our league, but got knocked out last week by Jamal Charles, Chip’s kick offs (I have Patterson and we get return yardage), and Megatron’s down night.

      • GEAGLE

        I won the scoring title, and had to face Charles last week…I barely squeeked by so I feel your pain

    • Spooonius

      I have foles and shady too. unfortunately, my championship was last week. oh well

  • Eric Carranza

    Awesome first quarter

  • SeanofDead

    Forte kinda looks like Common

  • SteveH

    Alshon Jefferey terrifies me.

  • OregonDucker

    That was a Duck’s first quarter!

    • GEAGLE

      Yes sir….running NFL teams out of the stadium!!!
      COLLEG OFFENSE!! COLLEGE OFFENSE!!nCOLLEGE OFFENSE!!

  • Daz

    This. Is. Awesome! :-)

    Just to explain my excitedness. I live in Australia. We get two games televised per weekend. Because of the time difference, I’m normally at work (and working as a PE teacher, rules out having a window open in the background with a stream going!). We’re now on summer holidays and this is the FIRST Eagles game I’ve seen live all season!! :-) And what a start it’s been!

    • SteveH

      Good for you man, be thankful it wasn’t last weeks game you got to see live.

    • GEAGLE

      Enjoy mate…put another shrimp on the Barbie of your boy!!!

    • BlindChow

      We may need you to start doing this every week if we win…

      • GEAGLE

        So true…poor guy, doesn’t know what he just got himself into
        ..
        Hahahn conte faked an injury…

    • Iskar36

      You may have to call in sick next week if this keeps up. Can’t spoil a good thing.

  • BlindChow

    I hope Dallas fans are watching and trembling.

  • ICDogg

    Nick Foles 1st quarter: 7-9, 91 yards, 2 TDs, QB rating 148.4

    • GEAGLE

      BOSS!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    wolff!

  • McNabbulousness

    the wolff baby

    • Iskar36

      Chung would have knocked our other defender out of the play.

  • Corry

    That’ll be 50 pushups, Rook.

  • SteveH

    Hey, wheres Phil Simms talking about how crappy this offense is?

    • GEAGLE

      They won’t even mention us on inside the NFL….watch

  • TheRogerPodacter

    woah. what the hell happened on that play? i guess Foles had a single option, it was well covered so he just pulled it down.

    • Corry

      I dunno, but Peters was about 10 yards downfield on that one though.

  • SeanofDead

    U. G. L. Y. That play ain’t got no alibi…..

  • TheRogerPodacter

    big 3rd down conversion!

  • ICDogg

    wow

  • ToastJenkins

    great blitz pickup on 3rd

  • McNabbulousness

    coop baby, the safety blanket

    • GEAGLE

      Coop there it is

      • McNabbulousness

        nice

  • GEAGLE

    FOles has been throwing DARTS this past month..RIP arm strength Questions

  • TheRogerPodacter

    can we talk about the pass protection on that third down play? that was great stuff.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    liking the safe checkdown to djax. you never know when he’s going to break one.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    lol foles is running all over the damn place. kinda wish he just threw it out of bounds

  • TheRogerPodacter

    woah. Polk has some moves to him all of a sudden.

  • Eric Carranza

    Polk wants more playing time lol

    • McNabbulousness

      4 more years, 4 more years

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Punt, but good drive. Flipped field position.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      nice punt, nice coverage.

  • A_T_G

    They seem to be more focused on moving the chains this week. I like it.

    • GEAGLE

      So true…last week they had no respect, just swung for the fences all game…and we paid for it. This is really nice to see the offense run so efficiently this late in the year.

  • shah8

    You see that pass to Polk? That’s the way it should be, and hadn’t been often enough in recent games. Right in the breadbasket, off of the first read…

    • SteveH

      Thanks for lending your expertise Shah.

    • Iskar36

      Careful… to many positive comments about Foles and you may become a convert.

    • A_T_G

      Well, I’ll give you credit for complimenting Foles when you see it that way.

    • GEAGLE

      Zito coglione

      • shah8

        bakayaro

        • GEAGLE

          Lol

  • SteveH

    Polk ran violent on that 3rd down, shame he didn’t quite get the first.

  • GEAGLE

    BRAMA BULL BARWIN!!! My bad kendrick

  • McNabbulousness

    nice pressure

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice qb hit for kendricks

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Pop the Jay

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice play, sconces!

    • GEAGLE

      MR. DECEMBER is in the building!!! Agent 26

    • McNabbulousness

      light and buttery, but not soft

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Where was this pass defense last week?

    • Andy124

      In philly.

  • Tumtum

    Still no yellow on the field??

    • TheRogerPodacter

      shhh lol

      • TheRogerPodacter

        almost one for delay of game, though. haha

    • ICDogg

      Why, were you expecting someone to take a leak there?

      • Tumtum

        After watching NE Ravens I thought it was supposed to happen every play

      • BlindChow

        Maybe there were shenanigans during the Snow Bowl…

    • Tumtum

      Okay that was a delay…

  • SteveH

    Sconces!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Turf monster thought it was Bryce. Good no call.

    • McNabbulousness

      jeffry made the contact

  • Eric Carranza

    No flag for delay?

  • Pennguino

    Where’s the delay of game?

  • SteveH

    Sconces and Fletch, the next Lito and Sheldon?

  • Corry

    Why is 3rd and Long such an impossible thing for us to defend?

    • ToastJenkins

      lack of a pass rusher

  • TheRogerPodacter

    bah. c’mon defense!

  • BlindChow

    Now it’s looking like the Eagles defense we all know…

    • McNabbulousness

      hopefully bend but not break, hey now a sack just happened

    • GEAGLE

      What’s that?

  • ICDogg

    OK, that was sorry looking

  • ICDogg

    Down goes Cutler

  • TheRogerPodacter

    awesome diving sack for Cole (though Thornton should get the credit)

  • BlindChow

    LOL!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    KENDRICKS! nice sack!

    • GEAGLE

      He has really settled into this new scheme 4 or 5 games ago…he will be a stud next year

  • McNabbulousness

    kendricks with stick, yes!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i think kendricks hit forte harder than forte hit kendricks.

  • Noel

    Ohhhh no, 3rd and 28, we’re screwed!

    • ICDogg

      For a moment there…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Brandon Marshall aiming for the Jeremy Maclin award for asking for flags after a play

    • Corry

      I really wish that was a penalty. I’m so tired of seeing receivers beg for that.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        i have seen penalties when the player gets up in the face of the referee

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice job by the defense forcing them out of FG range. great job, i’d say.

  • A_T_G

    Blocking is not Matt’s forte.

  • Pennguino

    Man he scared me when I saw it wasn’t Dj

  • OregonDucker

    Is this a Lombardi Defense or am I dreaming?

    • GEAGLE

      It’s coming together

    • ICDogg

      More like a Mike Lombardi defense, usually

      • McNabbulousness

        hey now! just picked up a chud missile on the sonar

  • SteveH

    Shocked they didn’t convert 3rd and 28. We give that up at what, 75%?

  • Andy124

    Man. I knew the D wasn’t as bad as least week, but I don’t deny for a second that my confidence in them was shook. This has been amazing tonight.

    • SteveH

      Well the Bears are no Vikings.

      • A_T_G

        Cutler is no Matt Cassel.

        • Corry

          Forte is not Asiata.

          • Andy124

            Marshall is no Jennings.

      • shah8

        In seriousness, the Vikings’ DL played a big role in being able to disrupt the offense.

    • GEAGLE

      No reason to lose faith in your defense…it’s not a mirage. They play sound fundamental footbal and you are only seeing guys operate at about 70% of what they will grow into

      • A_T_G

        How did you calculate 70%?

        • BlindChow

          Science.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Is it too early to ask for the team to play a **complete** game? 4 full quarters? Or is that just greedy and unrealistic?

    • Eric Carranza

      Let that happen next week

      • TheRogerPodacter

        yes, better answer than mine. lol

    • TheRogerPodacter

      saving that for the playoffs.

    • OregonDucker

      No, that’s how you win playoffs and championships.

  • Mitchell

    Kendricks may be short but he is definitely not undersized. That dude is fucking huge!

    • Andy124

      TWSS

  • Corry

    Brown didn’t get tackled by the turf. That’s new.

  • McNabbulousness

    BB up the gut for the first, good looking play

  • BlindChow

    Holy moly, they weren’t kidding about Chicago’s run defense. Even Bryce Brown is getting yards…

  • Tumtum

    I love the Kelce love from Collinsworth

    Fake screen!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    WOWWWWWWWWWWWW that was awesome.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Was that Avant with RAC?

  • Eric Carranza

    That pump fake

    • Don_the_Hun

      It fooled the camera man and pretty much everyone in the stadium

  • McNabbulousness

    foles with the ball fake!!!! first downs at will!!!!

  • ToastJenkins

    what a great pump fake…Foles is on fire

    • GEAGLE

      He shut that blitz down with that pump fake!!

      Are Yous seeing YOUR young STUD?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i loved hearing collinsworth laugh as that ball was in the air

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I’m looking forward to next year for many reasons. But one of them is that I won’t have to listen to the “he started as a backup to Vick” story 5 times a game.

    • GEAGLE

      Preach

  • McNabbulousness

    holy hell 2min warning already, wasn’t paying attention to the clock that whole quarter

  • SteveH

    Gotta admit, that pump fake was a pimp fake.

    • McNabbulousness

      church

  • ICDogg
    • McNabbulousness

      yep that or the fox game of the week

  • Pennguino

    Looked like lazy routes

  • TheRogerPodacter

    there you go, Henery!

  • McNabbulousness

    hell yeah!!

  • shah8

    Even Henery is in on the act.

  • Pennguino

    That kick looked like a Nick Foles Run. Took for ever to get there

  • GEAGLE

    Really nice seeing Alex hit from downtown these last two games

    • Pennguino

      It was a good kick in the outdoors

  • SteveH

    Chicago didn’t want to be in the playoffs anyhow.

  • A_T_G

    Why did they make the kick call so dramatic? It was right down the middle and into the net 20 feet up.

    • SteveH

      I was wondering the same thing. Guess when the game has been this lopsided they need to manufacture what they can.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      how long was that FG? i wasn’t paying attention

      • BlindChow

        49 yards.

        • TheRogerPodacter

          decent chunk of yardage. not a chipshot by anymeans, but i dont think we should be making it so dramatic until it gets to 50 haha.

          granted, Henery’s career high is what? 51?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice ST coverage there. i saw Graham in the right spot to defend it. not sure who the other LBs were.

  • Anders

    I know we scored 24 points in 1 half, but Im disappointed we didnt score more.

    • SteveH

      I mean, 1 punt isn’t anything to be too upset about I don’t think. I hear you though.

      • Anders

        Just the way we moved the ball before the punt and the FG.

        It just felt like we should have scored 35

    • A_T_G

      It just felt like the clock was running too fast. Did they skip a quarter?

      • OregonDucker

        Chip warp speed makes the time clock wonky.

      • Andy124

        So few incomplete passes kept the clock moving.

    • Pennguino

      I want a 40 burger at least..or a fur burger

  • Iskar36

    Really NBC? There seriously was zero reason to bring that up right now.

    • SteveH

      It wouldn’t an X-mas Eagles broadcast without reminding us of something that happened before most fans were born.

    • Corry

      Costas brought it up in the pregame show.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        i don’t know what you are referring to, but i feel like saying “I expected more from you, Costas” is accurate regardless.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    No f ups. Concede the 3 points if necessary. But our safeties better be back playing c-field.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    wowwwwwwwwww thats bullshit.

    • McNabbulousness

      great job by the replay crew, he was clearly short in real time

      • BlindChow

        Kelly better be sending that to the league office.

        • TheRogerPodacter

          CC: Arians, Bruce.

        • SteveH

          Bruce Arians would have had at least 13 to send by this time.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      dear chicago. fuck you with your bullshit. always when we play them.

  • OregonDucker

    Missed a challenge again. VEry dissappointing.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      can Chip even challenge that? i thought in the last 2 min, it is a penalty to throw the flag?

      • SteveH

        Yeah Chip can’t challenge there.

    • Eric Carranza

      Within 2 min only booth can challenge

  • shah8

    That was an enjoyable and meaty half. Wish I could have seen Shady’s early long run.

  • Eric Carranza

    Bs within 2 min the booth should of reviewed that first down

    • Anders

      problem is if they review, the clock stops, so it wont really matter

      • Eric Carranza

        The keeps going after the call n they can’t spike or it would be turnover on downs

      • TheRogerPodacter

        the clock should start running again as soon as they are done, though, right?

    • Tumtum

      There was no time. Once he spikes it, its unreviewable

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i think the real solution would have been for the refs to stop the clock to allow a measurement. then, the booth can call for a review of the spot.

      don’t worry about stopping the clock, because even if they get it, the clock starts as soon as both teams get set.
      downside: they wouldn’t have to spike the ball… could have just gone for the FG anyway!

  • ACViking

    The Emperor rules

  • A_T_G

    If we hold them scoreless in the second half, I am going to ask the league to put an asterisks next to the date of our last shutout.

  • Eric Carranza

    Woooo 2nd consecutive Sunday night game next week

  • McNabbulousness

    this just in eagle-boys the marquee next week

  • ICDogg

    Nick Foles is 14 of 17, 145 yds, 2 tds, 141.1 rating

    • Andy124

      with two throw-aways. :)

    • OregonDucker

      Isn’t that a normal game for St. Nick? :-)

    • Tumtum

      If he and Shady keep this up I stand to make some cashola on fantasy championship

    • jshort

      needs to do better in 2nd half

    • Andy124

      Hate it when he has more incompletions than tds. Needs to work on that.

  • Noel

    Sounds like we’re getting flexed to next Sunday night too!

  • A_T_G

    Bob just stole Chip’s line about controling ones own destiny being impossible.

  • TheRogerPodacter
  • Tumtum

    So they made a change to this challenge rule…what exactly was it?
