PHI at DAL – 1st Half

Posted: December 29th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 553 Comments »

It all comes down to this. Eagles at Cowboys for the NFC East title. We’re the better team. We’re the healthier team. But after a wild day around the NFL, take nothing for granted.

I don’t normally make predictions, but I will for this special occasion.

Eagles 31
Cowboys 20

Go Eagles!!!


  • TheRogerPodacter

    LETS GO BIRDS!

  • scratcherk

    No matter what happens. Had a great season watching football with you guys. Appreciate it since I’m an out of towner and no nearby Eagles fans.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      where are you located? somewhere in the US?

      • scratcherk

        Detroit MI :-)

        well a suburb at least.

        • TheRogerPodacter

          ahh ok. i’m no help for you then. haha.
          it seems the readers of the ‘blitz here are really all over the place. it would be cool to have somewhere for us to ‘mark’ where we are so people in the same area can gather for games!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    “this place is going to be a madhouse tonight” – from the reports we’ve been reading, it will be a madhouse because the place is going to be packed with rowdy eagles fans (and hopefully bitter cowboys fans!)

  • lilmc

    Let’s Go!!!!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Everyone be sure to take your heart meds now. GO EAGLES!!!!!

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      Heart meds, I don’t need no stinkin’ heart meds!
      I’m ready to run through a f-ing wall right now!

  • EFD

    It’s completely irrational but I would honestly feel better if Romo were playing in this game.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      I won’t feel better until we’re up by 3 TDs.

  • OregonDucker

    Achieve Greatness Together!

  • bdbd20

    It all comes down to this. This is what it all comes down to.

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      Good vs. Evil!

  • Corry

    Just win.

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      Just win, BABY!
      (So says Big Al Davis in Heaven)

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    V is for VICTORY: It is our DESTINY!
    Let’s go M-F’ers and don’t let up – we need all the BCS points we can get!

  • Eric Carranza

    Just finished doing wat I did last week played madden against our opponent n won now laying down in the exact position, time to watch the game

    • Crus57

      I am eating my burnt pizza, same as last week.

      • Eric Carranza

        Bring on Dallas lol

      • Andy124

        I’m am drinking, same as last week.

  • SteveH

    WE WANT DALLAS!!!!

  • Iskar36

    LETS GO EAGLES!!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    GAME TIME! GO BIRDS!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i actually kind of like how Chip always defers the opening kickoff. i like getting the ball right after halftime.

  • scratcherk

    Kicking it deep… good.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    argh. come on defense!

  • Corry

    C’mon guys, get off the field here.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      3rd & short. we have a chance!

      • Corry

        Not when we fucking jump off sides.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        omg……………….

  • GEAGLE

    What the fuck is up men? Let’s get it crack-a-Lackin…FLY EAgles Fly!! GET HYPE!!!!

    • SteveH

      Nobody wants to breathe right now.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i really expect our run D to be a little better than this, though we do seem to start a little slow

  • Corry

    They’re making this too easy.

  • Corry

    YES!

  • jshort

    fumble

  • Eric Carranza

    Yes !!

  • Andy124

    yes!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    THERE WE GO!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    HA!!!!!

  • wallacemnw

    Yes yes!

  • Crus57

    Kendricks!

  • Corry

    KENDRICKS!

  • BlindChow

    I saw them practicing that play earlier. Just like Davis drew it up.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Implode Cowboys implode!!!

    • GEAGLE

      Kendrick made that play

  • GEAGLE

    Keep crying boys!!
    ..
    DEFENSE!! DEFENSE! DEFENSE ,

  • wallacemnw

    I was starting to get anxious.

    • GEAGLE

      Why?

      • wallacemnw

        Because Im an Eagle fan!?

    • jshort

      i am too

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ok, guys. early game problems were on me. i don’t usually drink during games, but i had a leftover beer from dinner. i thought it was throwing us off so i poured it out. next play, we get a turnover!

    • Corry

      We may ask you to pour out another one.

    • wallacemnw

      I just started drinking and…boom!

  • OregonDucker

    Here we come. Try and stop us!

    • GEAGLE

      Let’s go DUCKER!!!!

  • shah8

    oh, looky here, a fumble!

  • BlindChow

    It’s like the everyone in the comment section had an orgasm at the same time.

    • TommyLawlor

      I’ll clean up later.

  • SteveH

    FUCK YEAH

  • Eric Carranza

    D got mad with at Murray for going after Williams lol

  • Insomniac

    Dem Girls doing what they always do.

  • OregonDucker

    Time for some Chip Ball!!

  • bdbd20

    Tony Romo is smiling right now.

  • scratcherk

    SPLUUUUGE!

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    If you look on the Yahoo Sports boxscore for the game, they have Dallas’ QB listed as being Romo still. Ha-ha!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    smart play – throw it in the dirt.

  • Andy124

    Beautiful pass!

    • GEAGLE

      Time to roll

  • TheRogerPodacter

    NICE PLAY!!!!

  • GEAGLE

    FOLES time BITCHES!!!!

  • Eric Carranza

    Polk for 2nd string!

  • scratcherk

    mmmm mmmmm mmmm

  • Corry

    I’m impressed by how well Polk has played lately.

  • wallacemnw

    Tough RACs

  • TheRogerPodacter

    anyone else feel the announcers not giving a shit about us having a great play?

    • scratcherk

      yea wtf was taht.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        DEMARCO MURRAY! 5 YARDS! UP THE MIDDLE!
        *whispers* chris polk. 30 yard catch & run.

        • GEAGLE

          Collinsworth called Kendricks a future superstar

  • Andy124

    and great finish by polk

    • TheRogerPodacter

      he damn near got out of that.

  • Andy124

    damn flag

  • GEAGLE

    Come on man

  • GEAGLE

    Ghost motion, reverse to Desean!!!

  • scratcherk

    Couple plays that Foles didnt pull trigger on

  • Andy124

    wow

    • GEAGLE

      Laser’!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    big throw & catch for Coop, but sadly a yard or two short.

  • Andy124

    gunned it

  • scratcherk

    Definitely pulled the trigger there, wow

  • jshort

    ok…3

  • TheRogerPodacter

    right down the middle. 3 points.

  • Eric Carranza

    Money

  • scratcherk

    Yay kicker guy!

  • Corry

    Was I the only one hoping they’d go for it on 4th down?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      heh. i wouldn’t say i was *hoping*, but i’d be pretty happy if they did lol

    • jshort

      no

  • shah8

    Give props to Henery. I was a little nervous about only a 47-yarder. I wish I could have seen how Lane Johnson was holding…

    • TheRogerPodacter

      yea, i missed that penalty as well.

    • Crus57

      10yd penalty for undermining the prevailing narrative?

    • wallacemnw

      He wasnt. Bad call, just barely grabbed the shoulder.

  • GEAGLE

    FOles was just HUGE with a LASER!!! That’s all we needed to know…this won’t be like last time…let’s roll’!!

    Time for our defense to FEAST!!!

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Henery just doesn’t inspire any confidence in his kicks, even the “good ones.”

    • SteveH

      The problem is that his kicks tend to wobble and move left and right a lot. IDK why, they just do, and it looks scary as fuck.

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      Wow, did we just sneak Akers in there for the kickoff?

  • ICDogg

    Now, Eagles only need to kill 37 minutes worth of clock and they’re in…

    • GEAGLE

      Defense is going to FEAST today

    • scratcherk

      what about hte other 15?

    • Andy124

      Romo’s out, better play 52

  • BlindChow

    Touchback. Woot.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i’ll take the touchback too. henery brought the leg today, i see.

    • TommyLawlor

      Could be a huge factor.

  • GEAGLE

    Our young defenders adore Demeco…someone has to pay for the probowl snub…it just happens to be the cow botches….Defense will be nasty tonight!!

  • scratcherk

    ugh someone cover murray

  • Corry

    Y’know, running backs can catch passes too guys. Just sayin’.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Better start picking up Murray out of the backfield.

  • scratcherk

    This is the Murray show

  • Corry

    You can go back to the bench now, Damion Square. Hang your head.

  • GEAGLE

    OMG square just got trucked. Holy shit

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Ok. Give that one to Orton & Murray.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      that was very romo-esque

  • BlindChow

    Defense is not looking too impressive tonight.

    • GEAGLE

      They will force ATleast 3 turnovers tonight…call that what you want

  • Crus57

    Isn’t there a rule about RBs lowering their head to spear people?

  • scratcherk

    Lots of dink and dunk.

  • Andy124

    wasn’t that the text book lower the helmet penalty on murray?

    • Eric Carranza

      Very

    • FairOaks

      I think both players have to be outside the tackle box for the penalty. Arguable on that one.

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Orton 6 for 6 huh…

    • Dragon_Eagle

      6 for 7

    • TheRogerPodacter

      thats more like it

    • bdbd20

      It’s how we play. Lots of yards between the 20’s.

      Gotta live with that to get the TO’s.

    • Corry

      I don’t think he has thrown much down field though.

  • SteveH

    WHY THE FUCK ARE WE PLAYING THIS OFF COVERAGE BULLSHIT THAT KILLED US AGAINST MINNESOTA. WHAT THE FUCK

    • TheRogerPodacter

      looks like a lot of single man to me

      • Crus57

        enough talk about the cowboys fans.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      its the short stuff thats been killing us. dump offs to murray, mostly.

      • scratcherk

        i’d be happy to give up the dump offs.

        • scratcherk

          ETA as long they tackle

        • GEAGLE

          Has anyone watched any eagles games this year? We give up yards!!! It’s what we have done in every game we were holding teams under 21..we bent, but look at the score bored…we didn’t BREAK!!! What’s the problem? Get hype!!!!!

  • scratcherk

    Time for the McCoy show now!

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Agreed. Unleash Shady.

  • ToastJenkins

    every punt is a victory…

  • Corry

    OK offense, let’s start the avalanche here.

  • shah8

    Kyle Orton is going to have to try some real passes. Cassel had game breakers at WR, and he got the ball to them. Off coverage is going to work for Bill Davis with this kind of mentality.

  • ToastJenkins

    give them the dink-n-dunk. it wont be able to keep pace with our offense

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    That last play shows the difference between Orton and Romo.
    Romo gets the first down there one way or another.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Foles is on!

  • Andy124

    Foles came to play tonight!

  • scratcherk

    Nice throw

  • Iskar36

    Another good throw from Foles.

  • wallacemnw

    I like that

  • TheRogerPodacter

    anyone else seeing the SD version of the game and having hte graphics clip off the sides?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i wonder when they are going to toss it back to desean on that play. it looked like a decent option that time instead of the short cross to cooper.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    OK. Coop. Listen to me. You are not Shady. Do not dance. Don not juke. Just run north-south. Thank you. That is all.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ahh. ertz tackled by the turf. could have had a lot of YAC on that one.

  • ToastJenkins

    attaboy Nick…keep pickin on those LBs

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Ertz Hurtz!

    • Crus57

      Always in our Hertz

  • Andy124

    holy crap. foles rating on the season 118.8 foles rating so far tonight. 118.8

  • Corry

    Keep it rollin’ guys. Don’t do anything stupid.

  • scratcherk

    UHHHHHH YEA

  • ToastJenkins

    seems Dallas is playing a ton of zone no? every time they go to man we hit the middle of the field

  • Andy124

    mccoy was right there

  • TheRogerPodacter

    how is that grounding? mccoy was like 3 feet from it???

  • scratcherk

    hello? mccoy is there

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Bullshit call.

  • ToastJenkins

    damn Nick at least make a half asses attempt…

  • Andy124

    don’t agree with that call at all.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    of course, they don’t see ware hugging mccoy in the backfield….

  • Corry

    that’s total bullshit. There was a receiver in the area.

    • Crus57

      Apparently he wasn’t a receiver because he was being tackled at the time.

  • ToastJenkins

    time to fake a screen and hit them deep

  • Niklas Dyrby Johansen

    That’s a ridiculous call.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    excellent run after the catch for djax

  • scratcherk

    LOVE IT

  • GEAGLE

    How do you call IG on a screen??? Like am I crazy?

    FOLESY!!!!!!!!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Djax!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    jesus christ. they have no idea who is on the field for us. these announcers are awful tonight.

    • Spooonius

      they are absolutely terrible. do you homework, jeez!

      • TheRogerPodacter

        at least tell us who is lined up behind center and get that right…

  • jshort

    omg…needed the break

  • Corry

    It’s cool. The Eagles have the talent to beat the ‘Boys AND the refs. So fuck you very much.

  • GEAGLE

    We are battling. And FOles is making some big time throws while shady flirts with breaking one….it’s only a matter of time. You can’t stop the rain!!!!!

  • RobNE

    Refs are killing us. The spear by Murray was obvious

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    We will win this for MOTHER RUSSIA!

  • SteveH

    This is PRO BOWL FOLES GOLD TIME BABY, LETS GO

    • GEAGLE

      Oh it’s coming…the legend of the rainmaker continues…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    why is downtown Dallas lit up green? lol

  • jshort

    JA

  • Crus57

    Holy F Avant!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      wowwwwwwwww

  • Eric Carranza

    My dad who never watches football ever just walks to my room n says he’s rooting for the eagles, happy moment considering most of my family goes for the boys

  • Corry

    Gameplan: whoever Jeff Heath is covering, throw it to that guy.

  • scratcherk

    oh yea baby oh yea

  • Andy124

    ok, didn’t love the back foot throw there lol

  • shah8

    I just went, no, no, no, OMFG LUCKY

    • TheRogerPodacter

      same here. i just mentioned that Foles didn’t look to get his whole body into the throw and that was all arm. knowing thats not his strength, i was worried.

      • shah8

        It just went HIGH, not so much weak…

        • RobNE

          He is trying to make all the throws. He just checked the box for jump ball

    • Corry

      That was very Eli-esque.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i was worried, it looked like Foles didn’t get his whole body into the throw.

  • lilmc

    Wow!

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Oh, no..great catch!

  • BlindChow

    Starting to breathe again.

  • Niklas Dyrby Johansen

    Avant a bigger receiver?

  • scratcherk

    TD BABY

  • GEAGLE

    And it just started DRIZZLING

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      The winds are picking up as well!

    • OregonDucker

      Yeah, but the rain is YELLOW?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i’m pushing for them to get 7xx yards (whatever it was) to make dallas the worst D of all time.

  • shah8

    The spread is really killing defenses at the goal line. The credibility of running these type of plays makes for having to guard too many potential plays.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      its also easy for mccoy to go out on a route for the TD when they don’t hold him in the backfield

      • RobNE

        Yes! Why intentional grounding and not def holding?

        • shah8

          Foles *spiked* the ball instead of throwing at McCoy’s feet. Or not enough of a difference from a spike.

          • RobNE

            Yes ok I am a homer

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I absolutely love having a good red zone offense.

    • GEAGLE

      While Brady only completes 27% of passes in the redzone to anyone not named Gronk these past two years

  • SteveH

    Yo Fuck Al Michaels, seriously, he could not be more bland in his announcing when the Eagles do something good. Get the fuck out of here with that shit.

  • Iskar36

    My girlfriend, also a big Eagles fan, has walked into the kitchen twice during big plays so far this game. When Avant made that catch, she was standing by the fridge and heard me yell. Her response, “Oh no… I have to stand by the fridge for the rest of the game now don’t I?”

    • Crus57

      Them’s the rules.

    • ToastJenkins

      thats a keeper there

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Your girl is a keeper.

      • Iskar36

        Damn straight.

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      Yes, yes she does!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      HAHAHAHAHHA THIS IS GREAT

      …. yes. she does.

    • scratcherk

      it’s only stupid if it doesnt work

    • lilmc

      My wife came downstairs just as we got the grounding and I sent her back upstairs.

      • Iskar36

        Hahaha, well done

    • Corry

      You should marry her.

  • jshort

    listing to radio watching tv radio a few sec ahead….try this….talk about moving fast

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Beautiful play design. Reid should be taking notes from the Rookie…

    • Dragon_Eagle

      He’s way too smart for that.

      (They’ll never expect the shovel pass)

  • ian_no_2

    It’s so quiet in Arlington, they can do their math homework. If they can add and subtract, it’s at least quiet enough.

  • Pennguino

    Risky throw but it worked. Did love the laser to Riley earlier in the game that came up just short of the first down. Way to put a nice touch on the easy TD.

  • ICDogg

    pic.twitter.com/O8WlgmTDlI

  • scratcherk

    ew.

  • Corry

    The hell was that Henery?

    • TommyLawlor

      Was that designed or just a bad kick?

      • Corry

        I hope it was a bad kick, because I don’t understand planning that. He showed he can put it out the end zone. Just do that all night.

      • Andy124

        you tell us.:)

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      Yea, they figured out we snuck in Akers last time.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i think we can already say that Foles is going to have a better game than the first time we played Dallas.

    • Andy124

      already has more yards

  • scratcherk

    INT PLEASE

  • GEAGLE

    If the defense gets FOles the ball back now, we can watch the cowboys have a royal rumble on their sideline?!??implosion

  • TheRogerPodacter

    al michaels is sad that romo isn’t here. awwwww

  • SteveH

    Seriously we need to get a #FuckAlMichaels going. I can’t stand this guy calling Eagles games.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i can’t get too upset about it. anybody thats not Mike & Merril is awful in my mind.

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Bimbo alert!

  • Niklas Dyrby Johansen

    Announcers awfully obsessed with these Cowgirls, huh?

  • scratcherk

    Hard count killing them.

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      It’s their best play so far!

  • Corry

    Try not to smile when you’re calling a penalty against us there, zebra.

    • GEAGLE

      They don’t have enough,flags to save the cowboys from this epic beatdown

    • aerochrome2

      Thought the same thing

  • Crus57

    So 3rd and 8 minus 5 yards = 3rd and 2?

    • Andy124

      zebras

      • TheRogerPodacter

        zebra math.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    bennie logan making up for the penalty.

  • Niklas Dyrby Johansen

    Apparently, Witten is not Orton’s BFF

  • BlindChow

    Jackson running forward!

  • jshort

    Orton crashing back to earth

    • Eric Carranza

      Something Andy Reid never learned. Adjustments l

      • RobNE

        How does Andy in a no difference game end up in overtime ?

  • shah8

    Kyle Orton is shit. He can make some passes, get some cheap yards. But he can’t make plays. It’s going to have to be a screwup for us to lose.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    More Shady up the gut. Let’s go.

  • Corry
    • Andy124

      a million up votes for this

    • TheRogerPodacter

      apparently also a record for yards too.

  • OregonDucker

    Foles will eviscerate you!

  • ACViking

    Too many commercials

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      Gotta pay the bills!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      just another reason to hate prime time games.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    heyyyyyy theyre finally talking about us!!!

  • OregonDucker

    We’re from Philadelphia. We FIGHT!!

  • nicolajNN

    Logan already proving a veteran getting us out of a 3rd and somewhat long in to a much more manageable 3rd and short.

  • SeanofDead

    Same old Cowboys
    Last two possessions
    7 pass attempts
    2 rush attempts

    • TheRogerPodacter

      we get another TD or two, and they won’t even be running that much.

  • ToastJenkins

    time to bust out the Celek wham block…

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Ware is shadowing McCoy !!!

  • Andy124

    is it just me or are they getting pretty consistent pressure?

    • ToastJenkins

      sucking them in…screen game will come back into play

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i wouldn’t say consistent, but it is noticeable.

    • ACViking

      Spot on

    • Corry

      They’re giving him a pocket to step up in mostly, but yeah, Dallas’s Dline showed up so far.

    • Crus57

      It seems to be edge pressure quite a bit, though not sure if its Peters/Johnson or a T/G handoff that’s not working right.

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      It does seem that way…Foles has done nice sides step to avoid it.

      • shah8

        Not letting him roll out as easily.

  • jshort

    D td would be nice.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      that would really take the life out of the stadium.

      • GEAGLE

        This is an opportunity for greatness….

  • GEAGLE

    Our lines need to TAKE OVER the trenches!!!

  • shah8

    Okay, that was the second time Foles just run around with his head cut off when the pass isn’t there… Dude, it’s safer just to go down. You can get hit and hurt by something blindside if you’re just trying to weave ineffectually in traffic!

    • ICDogg

      As I often say, Mr. Foles, a play where you end up with your back to the receivers is not a good play. #FOAud— Aaron Schatz (@FO_ASchatz) December 30, 2013

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i think he had a chance to go for it, but the lane close up on him. i guess his option was to just dive forward

    • SteveH

      Typical young guy trying to do too much.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        lol maybe he’s spent too much time with Vick! he always makes something out of nothing. Foles just doesn’t have those skills.

  • Corry

    I like Chung more when he hits the other team.

  • SeanofDead

    I’m sure this has come up
    Why isn’t Wolff starting?

    • Crus57

      He’s inactive, reinjured his knee last week.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      his knee

    • Corry

      Injury, inactive.

    • Eric Carranza

      He’s out

  • TheRogerPodacter

    arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  • scratcherk

    how was that caught. flashbacks to Minn.

  • GEAGLE

    Turnover time

  • Niklas Dyrby Johansen

    WHO was a ballet dancer? Kendricks?

  • Crus57

    Al Michaels sounds drunk now

  • BobSmith77

    Good throw from Orton. He has looked sharp.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    weird that Nate Allen went to cover the shorter route instead of the deeper one.

    • RobNE

      I thought the same thing.

  • Andy124

    at least he wasn’t uncovered

  • wallacemnw

    Not good

  • TheRogerPodacter

    LETS GO DEFENSE!!!!

  • Andy124

    now that was uncovered. :(

  • ToastJenkins

    dammit

  • Crus57

    Ugh.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    DAMMIT! we not covering that guY!?!?!

  • scratcherk

    how was he wide open…

  • Corry

    Do we leave the starting defense in Philadelphia on away games now?

  • Niklas Dyrby Johansen

    nice coverage

  • shah8

    Okay, that dead man walking needs reburial, offense…

  • GEAGLE

    Time to answer

  • DamonL86

    its a game

  • scratcherk

    Need some more pressure on orton.

    • jshort

      Cole getting handled so far.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    announcers losing their fucking minds lol

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    You called it Tommy: 10-7, a close game in the first half.

  • SteveH

    We’ve been leaving people wide open all game. No clue what the fuck we’re doing but the defense is trying to keep the Cowboys in this.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      and aside from the long pass, its all been short stuff too. best way to beat the blitz is to throw it before it gets there.

  • GEAGLE

    Two more turnovers and we win

  • Corry

    I didn’t now Dallas traded for Matt Cassel.

  • Lewwyn

    Come on show that Kelly toughness now.

  • OregonDucker

    That Dallas score was important. Players will gut check. Look out!!!

  • truthchief

    Time to move the ball, score, and take the crowd out.

  • GEAGLE

    “Time to put the woman and children to bed and go looking for dinner”

  • GEAGLE

    Doing a rain dance in my fucking living room

  • truthchief

    Ryans missed the TE.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      he was on the other side of the field. the two LBs on that side both blitzed. if he was supposed to cover him, thats a bad scheme.

  • Corry

    WTF McCoy?

  • scratcherk

    wide open lane there.

  • ToastJenkins

    ahhh Shady where you goin??

  • RobNE

    McCoy keeps getting stopped in the backfield

  • wallacemnw

    im starting to feel sick.

  • wallacemnw

    i feel much better

  • GEAGLE

    FOles is legit ,,

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Foles & Avant have a good thing going this game.

  • ToastJenkins

    keep workin the middle

  • Andy124

    mccoy on the first down run though. ugh. did he get the wrong call from the sideline?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    this one was more IG than the other one…….. i guess the refs are making up for their earlier BS call.

    • wallacemnw

      Yep.

  • wallacemnw

    Even better.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    There we go, Shady.

  • scratcherk

    wtf is it with these announcers.

  • ToastJenkins

    dallas is jumping everything….hit em with the fake bubble screen where Cooper goes deep

  • SeanofDead

    We need to be more productive on first down.

  • Niklas Dyrby Johansen

    Congrats LeSean!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    what the fuck al michaels. its ok to raise your voice just a little when we have a big play too, you know.

  • scratcherk

    ouch

  • TheRogerPodacter

    that ones on Casey.

  • ToastJenkins

    they are mugging our guys – tell the OL to start holding more if thats how its gonna be tonight

  • Andy124

    our OL must be in philly

    • GEAGLE

      They will have to flip the switch like they did with Detriot….shady is going to break one

  • scratcherk

    how is that not a penalty

    • TheRogerPodacter

      only thing i can think of is that it was not “catchable”

      • Niklas Dyrby Johansen

        And that is exactly why it should be unnecessary roughness

  • TheRogerPodacter

    wow. claiborne didn’t even try to play the ball….

    • Crus57

      Why would he, Jerry has fixed the refs good.

  • BlindChow

    Ugh, handing them the game.

  • Corry

    Holy shit, WHY ARE YOU GUYS PLAYING LIKE IDIOTS?!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Ugh. Stupid penalty.

  • wallacemnw

    Stupid. Stupid.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    c’mon guys. the refs are going to call everything on us this game. play smart.

    • Crus57

      Except holding on the Cowboys.

  • scratcherk

    Let down game.

  • jshort

    you got to be kidding

  • wallacemnw

    This is not good.

  • truthchief

    Boykin = Idiot

  • Iskar36

    Boykin has not had his best game…

  • Iskar36

    Pass rush needs to get some pressure on Orton.

  • truthchief

    Dumb, Dumb, Dumb

  • TheRogerPodacter

    witten with a little limp. seems to be walking it off

  • wallacemnw

    Love Boykin but what a dumb play

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Orton’s got a totally cleaqn pocket!!!

  • Pennguino

    Need to start getting to the QB

    • Andy124

      seriously, put him under the pressure foles is under. pass rush pressure that is.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    murray spears the defender for the 3rd time in the game.

  • truthchief

    Dallas D plays great against us, Cowboys offense now a juggernaut. Why?

  • Andy124

    good job graham

  • Niklas Dyrby Johansen

    I’d rather have Orton beat us than watch Murray run us over. Load the box, Billy!

  • Jean Souza

    Nate Allen is having a terrible game

  • Corry

    This is starting to look like the old Eagles D. Guys tripping over each other, receivers running totally free… yuck.

  • wallacemnw

    Where’s Wolff?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      inactive. bad knee

    • Crus57

      Injured and inactive.

  • wallacemnw

    This is awful.

  • truthchief

    QB has all day for the Boys. Get a clue Davis!

  • DamonL86

    3rd and long no problem

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    With a clean pocket like that, Tim Tebow would carve us up as well!!!

  • Guest

    Eeeeewww, Garrett blinking at his players

  • BobSmith77

    No pressure up front all from the DL. They’re getting owned.

  • aerochrome2

    Unbelievable

  • SeanofDead

    Time to run some stunts, we need to get Orton’s ass on the grass!

  • Corry

    After last week, i thought the light had come on for Davis and his defense…now I’m back on the fire his ass bandwagon.

  • ACViking

    Deep pass to Bryant is on deck. Play action

  • RobNE

    I know we are mad at the D, but the O is struggling too. They are in the backfield every freakin play.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Yep. We are losing in the trenches on both sides right now.

      • Andy124

        yup

  • SteveH

    Anyone else see Nate Allen run away on that 7 yard Murray run where they showed how he was supposed to be playing in the “box” ? He was right in the hole and ran away when Murray was coming. Shameful.

    • Corry

      Yeah, he looked for the nearest blocker and engaged instead of filling the gap.

      • SteveH

        Yep. Was pitiful.

  • truthchief

    TV Break. Now coach Davis! Get the offense back on the field and do something good!

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    Dallas looks the more physical team so far. Drives are methodical with few negative plays where as the birds are hit and miss…bad feeli g

    • ceteris_paribus1776

      Jinx works again!

  • BlindChow

    Holy shit.

  • Niklas Dyrby Johansen

    KENDRICKS FOR PRESIDENT!

  • Eric Carranza

    Kendricks again lol

    • BlindChow

      MVP so far.

  • scratcherk

    FUCK U DALLAS

  • Westport_Johnny

    nice

  • Andy124

    geag is one more from prophet status

  • nicolajNN

    Boom!

  • Corry

    Oh thank God for Mychal Kendricks.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    bout time we caught one of those!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Now let’s put a nail in the coffin.

  • Corry

    GIVE ME POINTS GODDAMMIT

  • TheRogerPodacter

    holy shit Celek!

  • wallacemnw

    Foles loves the sprint outs!

  • Andy124

    is that the record for 20+

  • Niklas Dyrby Johansen

    Can’t blame our skill players today.

  • RobNE

    I don’t care about style points here, just score.

  • jshort

    that was quick

  • BlindChow

    2 plays.

  • Eric Carranza

    Td baby

  • Andy124

    way to capitalize!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • SeanofDead

    Yahtzee!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    BAM!!!

  • Corry

    We just ran the same play that Dallas scored on.

    • Corry

      And Dallas ran the same defense.

  • nicolajNN

    Does it seem like we’re much better catching those jump balls than we have been in previous seasons? Is that the smoothies as well?

    • RobNE

      no, they practice that in a drill

      • TheRogerPodacter

        oh cool. i didn’t know we had a drill for just that sort of a thing. is it new under chip?

    • Crus57

      I think I read something where it might be because they’re often thrown before the DB turns to look back, so he doesn’t have as long to track the ball in the air.

  • Eric Carranza

    Was that the same play Dallas beat us on for the td?

    • Niklas Dyrby Johansen

      Naaah, different formation, same route though.

  • OregonDucker

    Chip Ball folks! This Eagle ball baby!

  • Iskar36

    Is it sexist of me to say my gf is not allowed out of the kitchen… (see comment earlier).

    • Corry

      No.

    • scratcherk

      well, while shes there….

    • lilmc

      My wife has not come back down as of yet.

    • Crus57

      It would apply regardless of sex, no? Not sexist then.

      • Iskar36

        Yep!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      nah. has nothing to do with gender. i’d be in the kitchen the whole time too if it was helping!

  • scratcherk

    my only complaint. only 40 seconds off clock.

  • GEAGLE

    No one can ever argue with me again about Kendricks growing into a stud.,,
    ,,,
    FOles is the truth.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    on long celek catch
    al michaels: [dallas lb] had *perfect* coverage on that play!

    on the TD
    al michaels: thats two blown coverages in a row!

    O_o

    • FairOaks

      He was talking about the Dallas TD play, followed by the Eagles TD play. So two TD plays in a row, I guess.

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    My bad Celek – I wanted you gone last year.
    Accept my sincerest apologies.

    • OregonDucker

      You’re forgiven. Never doubt Chip again!

    • GEAGLE

      SAme. Sincerest apologies

  • Niklas Dyrby Johansen

    I just love watching the pink monster choke

    • Pennguino

      I like choking the pink monster…..bwahahaha Sorry haha

  • Dragon_Eagle

    That’s it Henery.

  • BobSmith77

    Swing of the game and where the tide turned. The stadium is dead now.

  • SeanofDead

    See what happens when you “blink” Garret?

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      Might be gone in the blink of an eye tomorrow.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    just me or did kendricks look hurt after that tackle?

    • ToastJenkins

      got kicked in the yambag

  • ACViking

    Smith making Cole a non-person

    • GEAGLE

      Need more twist stunts…let’s see him do that to cox

  • bdbd20

    I think we’ve found a more awkward QB than Foles.

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Oh my God, AR could run fastest than that!

  • DamonL86

    dont give up points here

  • Corry

    That dude from the Foo Fighters is playing a pretty good game for the Cowboys.

  • RobNE

    their receiver left early that play

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ugh. c’mon ‘meco. that was your guy.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Ok. Covering Witten I’m sure was part of the game plan.

  • SteveH

    The fact that we’re winning the game despite losing the battle in the trenches is remarkable.

  • GEAGLE

    Shut this shit down!!! Sack fumble!

  • wallacemnw

    no pressure at all

    • Andy124

      neither psychological or pass rush

      • wallacemnw

        Couldn’t have said it better…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    come on defense! get it together now!

  • Corry

    Has anyone seen our Defensive line? I’m considering putting their picture on a milk carton.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    there you go, boyk.

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Well, at least they came close to the statute that time.

  • scratcherk

    Is chip calling hte D?

  • ACViking

    Haven’t had a TE do this since last year

  • RobNE

    that’s holding against Cole is what that is

  • GEAGLE

    Trent battling

  • GEAGLE

    Nice defEnse

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice coverage on witten from Allen.

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Finally brought teh heat!

  • Corry

    …Dallas took a timeout? Why? They went out of bounds, clock stopped.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i think they gave him forward progress which would not be out of bounds

      • Corry

        Ok, that makes sense.

    • scratcherk

      forward progress?

    • Iskar36

      I think forward progress would have meant the clock still runs, however, they should have called the time out with 2-3 seconds left, not 23. Gives us an extra look at the ball.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        yea that part is a little strange.

  • bdbd20

    Relax about the defense. This is the gameplan. Limit the big plays. Allow the guys to make tackles.

    • GEAGLE

      Yup…we gave up yards all season, yet held everyone under 22pts..why.? Turnovers….and that is continuing tonight….so what’s tHe problem? We grind out a win

      • Neil

        You want a defense that has more than one method of succeeding.

        • GEAGLE

          What I want and reality are two different things. Did you not notice the huge hole at safety…we aren’t the steal curtain, we have issues to cover up…but we have seen if we stick to the script and do our job, that we won’t give up points…and that’s all that matters..i don’t give a shit about yards and style points…they can have that all day if we don’t give up more then 10 points per half

          • Neil

            You asked what’s the problem, so I answered. Agreed.

        • bdbd20

          We just don’t have the personnel to do that. It will come with a few drafts.

  • scratcherk

    score in 18 secs?

    • Andy124

      kneel

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Wow – that’s a REAL leg that guy has there!

  • RobNE

    well they are driving at will. Our offense can’t hold back their DL. We are winning because of non repeatable things – turnovers and jump balls. I am terrified.

    • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

      I think we need Weapon X to make a halftime speech in the locker room now.

  • jshort

    we get the ball 1st second half

  • Andy124

    ball first in the second half.

    • Crus57

      Unless they onside.

      • Dragon_Eagle

        Might happen.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Play it safe. Take the 7 point lead into the locker room. We get the ball to start the 2nd half.

    • BobSmith77

      Play action and bomb it deep here

      • TheRogerPodacter

        was hoping for the fake kneel from the victory formation. haha. i’ll bet a toss to mccoy to the outside would go for quite a bit.

  • ACViking

    Pisarcik formation

    • jshort

      necessary invention..thanks to Herm

  • jshort

    want to see Foles doing that at the end of game

  • SteveH

    Nick Dynamite playing well, hope the D and OL can step it up in the 2nd half.

  • Eagles_Fan_in_San_Fran

    Tommy: Time to calm our nerves with your words

    • RobNE

      yes I expected at LEAST a step up from the Bears game. Like 24-0 after the first.

    • GEAGLE

      Whats there to be nervous about? Our QB is making huge 3rd down bail out throws, shady is due to break one now that it’s sports science time and our defense game up 10 points while we get the ball at the half…what da problem is? LOL

  • Corry

    All right Chip, time to put the starters in at Oline and Dline. Whoever these guys are, they aren’t getting the job done.

  • ACViking

    Dallas defense playing a good scheme. Both TDs result great pass and catch.

    Foles is for real. Defense needs to shut down Murray

    • BlindChow

      And Witten.

      • Andy124

        maybe not leave him uncovered.

  • OregonDucker

    Mad scientist, Chip, enters his lab. A shrewd grin crosses his face. Heeeeheeeeeheeee. Now the fun begins!

    • jshort

      you seeing double yet?

      • OregonDucker

        Not yet. Herb tea is kicking in.

        • jshort

          good idea…going to join you!

    • Andy124

      hope so. not sure there’s a scheme for, ‘don’t get whooped at the LoS’. But the guys could sure play better.

  • Daniel

    Ok. Time for the adjustments. This is where we play or best ball

  • BobSmith77

    0 sacks, 2 hurries in the 1st half. If this keeps up, the Boys just need a turnover or two in the 2nd half to steal this game.

    • RobNE

      or rather just stop making turnovers.

  • Frencheaglesfan

    I don ´t know how you guys manage to post during the game, too stressed and focused for that.

    • Corry

      I deal with my stress with high levels of sarcasm.

      • Frencheaglesfan

        Every commercial breaks the humour on this site gives me a little smile. Thanks for the help

    • Crus57

      Nervous energy.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Glad we’re up. Just a little frustrating that we’ve had 2 turnovers and are only up one score.

    D-line needs to make some adjustments and get to Orton.

  • GEAGLE

    Browns Fred their coach lol

  • RobNE

    how do the Browns give a new coach only one year? that just seems like amateur hour.

    • Iskar36

      On top of having to start over once again, how do you convince a head coach candidate that the Browns are a good organization for them to coach in after this?

      • jshort

        money.

      • Dragon_Eagle

        Completely agree on this. Is anyone really shocked the Browns didn’t turn it around in just one year? Hell, they’ve been trying to turn it around for what, 15 years?

    • jshort

      Joe Banner.

  • GEAGLE

    Our QB is making huge BIGTIME bail out 3rd down throws
    SHady has to break one
    Defense held them to 10 points
    Winning turn over battle
    We get the ball at half
    ..
    Time to flip the switch and take over the trenches like Detriot 2nd half

  • GEAGLE

    Sport science time and we get the ball…SHADY!!!!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter
  • Nah__Roots

    As far as the Eagles, I'm not sure. There is alot of speculation about players being disgruntled it does not look promising.— Leonard Weaver (@LeonardWeaver) June 10, 2013
