Gameday vs ARZ

Posted: December 1st, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 37 Comments »

Getting closer. Only 90 minutes to go.

Inactives:

QB Matt Barkley
RB Matt Tucker
OL Dennis Kelly
OL Matt Tobin

DB Curtis Marsh
DB Earl Wolff
LB Emmanuel Acho

Mychal Kendricks and Bradley Fletcher return to the defense.

Michael Vick is the #2 QB.

Big news for the Cards. RB Andre Ellington is inactive. He’s been a key player for them in the recent 4-game winning streak. The Eagles catch a big break there.

The Sunday morning shows are throwing lots of love to Nick Foles and the Eagles. That’s nice to hear, but it also makes me nervous when they start to jump on the Eagles bandwagon. Ron Jaworski has a sit-down interview with Foles coming up at about noon on ESPN. That could be interesting.

One prediction for the game…I think Nate Allen comes up with his first INT of the season today.

    Ellington OUT is huge. Mendenhall is a shadow of his former self. Ellington has big play ability everytime he touches the ball.

    Big, big break. Now if someone would step up and Tonya Harding Fitz….

    • Joseph Dubyk

      I was never a big fan of Mendenhalls even when he was younger. Just was never anything special.

      • Andy124

        Never special, was always decent though. He seems to be less than that now, but could just be the crappy OL.

  • Joseph Dubyk

    Nice prediction for Nate. My bold prediction is Ertz has a breakout game while the Cards focus on Shady and DeSean… 5 catches 100 yards and a score

  • bdbd20

    I’m hoping to see a lot of Cole-Cox-Curry-Graham against a stationary QB. This could be a lot of fun.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Serve me up some Cardinal Curry.

  • GermanEagle

    I can smell a pick 6 by Kendricks:

    EAGLES 7, Cardinals 0

    FOOOOOTBAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL. I’M SO EXCITED

  • anon

    Should I start Boykin or Meco as my IDP?

  • Mitchell

    I said the same thing earlier about Nate. Were gonna need it!

  • ICDogg

    Derek says it better than me, on the subject of our apprehensions about this game.

    Things feel a little too settled for the Eagles right now. My impending shake-up fan radar is beeping like mad. I hate when that happens.— Derek / IgglesBlog (@igglesblog) December 1, 2013

    • A Roy

      I don’t think I’ve been this nervous for a game since 2004.

      • ICDogg

        It feels like our belief in the state of this franchise is on the line here.

        • Andy124

          I don’t know. A loss isn’t going to shake me too much as long as it’s not an especially ugly loss.

    • OregonDucker

      Don’t worry ICDogg. Nick will carve them up all day as they blitz. Our DL and LBs will slam Palmer. Feel good babe, feel very good about this team.

    • nicolajNN

      For me it’s not just this game, I’ve been nervous about every game this year, between the last few years and this year’s ups and downs I just don’t feel sure about anything

  • A Roy

    Let’s light this candle!

  • SteveH

    I got Cary Williams getting a pick today. Just got a feeling Carson’s going to give one to somebody.

  • Corry

    Ugh, we got Moose and Goose…or Dumb and Dumber.

  • Crus57

    Trying to stick to my mantra: “Low expections means no disappointment”.

  • jshort

    cards get ball first …we defered

  • ICDogg

    Not much wind

  • Andy124

    Somebody turn on the AC and the Linc, freeze these guys out.

  • jshort

    yes

  • Andy124

    YESYEWSYESYESYES

  • BlindChow

    Sopoaga wouldn’t have recovered that fumble!

  • Corry

    Excellent start!

  • Corry

    Maybe the light has come on for Cole?

    • Andy124

      That was from a traditional DE spot rather than OLB. fwiw

      • Corry

        Ah OK, I missed that.

  • TommyLawlor

    Just posted the 1st half thread.

  • jshort

    Foles got lucky again

  • Vik

    Tommy, you are a genius. Way to call the Nate Allen pick!!

    • TommyLawlor

      Occasionally I am smart.

      • Vik

        Can you do one for each game? Let’s keep the streak going!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    your nate allen prediction just came true!

    • TommyLawlor
