Go Eagles !!!


  • Dragon_Eagle

    Cole!!

  • Corry

    Hey! we got off the field on 3rd and long!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    kinda wish we didn’t give up a FG attempt on the opening drive, but OK… better than a TD!

    EDIT: FG no good! yessssssss

    • Corry

      At least they missed.

      • BlindChow

        I credit Fipp with that miss.

        • Corry

          That creepy stare from the sideline probably freaked out Walsh.

          • SteveH

            It’s not creepy, its just very very focused!!

          • Crus57

            .. on being creepy.

    • GEAGLE

      Big man,feelin good…hanging around, hanging around-Teddy KGB

      Time to step on throats

  • GEAGLE

    We just stormed the Castle(CSN)…punt that chicken…sports illustrated cover boy time
    ..
    Nvmd, missed feel goal, even better

  • TommyLawlor

    Dodged a bullet with that FG.

    • SeanofDead

      Matrix style….

    • GEAGLE

      Or, the bullet dodged US!! -Billy Davis lol

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Is it too much to ask that kickers occasionally miss 55+ yard figgies against the Eagles?

  • jshort

    good field position

  • ACViking

    Opening kickoff.

    Not showing great confidence in (a) Henery or (b) coverage team.

  • OregonDucker
    • GEAGLE

      Yes sir..The PENATRATOR!!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    well that play didn’t work too well. bah.

  • ToastJenkins

    Flat ….not good

    • GEAGLE

      Be easy…NOT TODAY boys!!!

  • Corry

    Wow Chris Polk in there on 3rd down.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ah. c’mon ertz. gotta catch that.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Donnie Jones for team MVP.

  • SteveH

    Donnie Money killing it again.

    • Corry

      With an assist from Boykin.

  • jshort

    they want the D to score first

    • GEAGLE

      Get SOME!!!,

  • ACViking

    Polk was open . . no?

    • Corry

      Looked like the corner was to that side of the field in zone.

      • ACViking

        ok. so hard to tell w/ broadcast angles.

        I think all games should be broadcast in “All 22″

  • Nick Folesly

    I feel a turnover coming here.

  • ACViking

    No Replay-Reviews today. Please.

  • BlindChow

    Exactly how the Eagles looked the last couple years against “lesser” teams…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ugh. so much for keeping the field position.

  • SeanofDead

    Line got very little pressure there

  • ToastJenkins

    too many easy throws…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    c’mon cary. you gotta make that tackle.

  • GEAGLE

    Already tired of that Viking horn….hope curry rams it up castles ass

  • ACViking

    I really hate Leslie Frazier.

    It’s early. But I hate him.

  • shah8

    It only takes one missed tackle on Patterson…

    • shah8

      welp…Jennings, but the point still stands. Waaaaay too loose coverage on the WRs, given what Cassel is, given what Asiata is (they’d be better off using Patterson or Webb as RB).

  • jshort

    wtf

  • TheRogerPodacter

    OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

  • ToastJenkins

    bleh…terrible

  • Corry

    Way too easy. Way, way, way too easy.

  • GEAGLE

    Blah blah blah…

  • BlindChow

    Chung.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      yep.

  • scratcherk

    wtf was that.

  • BlindChow

    Another 3 and out?

    • GEAGLE

      Take that bullshit elsewhere please

  • SteveH

    Chung whiffed on his jam.

  • SeanofDead

    Poor effort there by Nate, shame dline almost swiped it out of Cassel’s hand twice.

    • GEAGLE

      Game of inches…from turnover to TD. Grrrrr

  • ACViking

    Not even Curt Coleman is that bad.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Your memory is fading.

      • ACViking

        No. Those long passes were Nnamdi’s fault.

        • Andy124

          Not according to Nnamdi lol

          • Dragon_Eagle

            Exactly. Why would Nnamdi point at Kurt if it wasn’t Kurt’s fault?

  • jshort

    the secondary is playing off…missing tackles…so how does this happen?

  • ian_no_2

    Eagles look overconfident

  • ACViking

    Why does Leslie Frazier hate the Eagles?

    • jshort

      trying to keep his job

      • ACViking

        I agree. I agree.

        He’s coaching for his job . . . or his next job.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Earl Wolff get well soon.

    • 47_Ronin

      Safety help will come in the off season either a FA signing (Jairus Byrd) or draft (Kenny Ladler or Nickoe Whitley)

  • OregonDucker

    Keep the faith. We’re just getting warmed up!

    • GEAGLE

      Yes sir….all the negative nellies are gonna cry and wine all game, and then bow down in the 4th..

    • jshort

      hope it doesn’t take till the 2nd half

      • GEAGLE

        Easy way, or the hard way, result is the same…streak continues….NOT TODAY!!!

  • GEAGLE

    I swear I thought they were about t try to sneak an onside kick on us…

  • ICDogg

    Vikes strategy today: go after Chung

    • GEAGLE

      Hopefully “friendly fire” Chunger doesn’t go after us…I’m in no mood to play 10 vs. 12 again!!!!

  • Crus57

    What would this pretty little girl like for christmas? I’m thinking the mute button.

    • Baloophi

      I assume it would be a breach of the NFL broadcast policy, but it’d be nice to have a live podcast from Tommy and Bama to supplant the moronic coverage we’re subject to on a weekly basis.

      • Crus57

        I was actually referencing that annoying Ford advert that I’ve now seen 3 times since the match started, but you make a good point.

        • Baloophi

          That could be replaced by a PBR or chocolate pudding spot…

  • ACViking

    The Eagles all season long have played soft on the corners. So the 8-yard out is there if the other team wants it.

    Minnesota is taking the out. And caught the Eagles in man-coverage with a well schemed WCO play.

  • Andy124

    Why ever throw to Avant deep?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    avant saved an INT with that penalty, i think.

    • SteveH

      he barely grabbed him, ticky tack call.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        hopefully our CBs were paying attention so they know what they (can’t) get away with!

  • anon

    I knew i shoud have started greg jennings in fantasy today. Hopefuly foles lights em up — vikings pass defense is terrible.

  • ToastJenkins

    I love avant for his character…but he is done as a WR

  • GEAGLE

    Slick nick

  • jshort

    polk…stone hands

  • TheRogerPodacter

    jesus christ polk. wtf was that?! you just spike the ball on the ground instead of catching it?!?

    • anon

      BB should never come out of rotation. i’m not even watching the game and i know that.

  • GEAGLE

    Come on Polk you baby huey

  • Andy124

    Stop dropping balls.

  • SteveH

    Well, Nick Polk off to a good start lol.

  • jshort

    crazy legs Foles

    • ian_no_2

      Foles would have wanted to go toe to toe with Peterson.

  • scratcherk

    wheres the late hit there? he slid feet first.

  • Pennguino

    another drop

  • SeanofDead

    Foles going for 300 and 100 today!

  • GEAGLE

    Hahahahaha hahahahaha sexy cover boy

  • Andy124

    Is there no penalty for hitting a qb who;s giving himself up?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      first guy was close enough to let go. by the third guy hitting him, you gotta call it…

      • Andy124

        exactly.

        • GEAGLE

          Especially when its a god damn sports illustrated cover boy and the NFLs top rated QB!!!

  • Michael Conrad

    Here we go again

  • Iskar36

    How many 20 yard runs does Nick Foles have?

  • BlindChow

    Foles might be the leading rusher today!

    • Andy124

      How’s his cardio?

    • GEAGLE

      How about that 3 and out? Lol

  • Corry

    At this rate, Foles is going to have his first 100 yard rushing day.

  • SteveH

    Nick Foles gunning for Mccoys record.

  • shah8

    heh, the Vikings just as soft, but on their line.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    damn. foles was close to breaking away there.

    • anon

      Sounds like same plan kelly had when vick was in. people not open, qb run. i guess game plan doesn’t change.

  • GEAGLE

    JP can’t be on the floor like that tho, even I Nick had time

    • Corry

      Looks like he tripped over Mathis’s leg.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    yay. points.

  • ToastJenkins

    feels like too much 3wr…i want to see more ace formation going forward if the dbs are going to play this way vs us

    • TommyLawlor

      There is logic to the 3 WR attack. MIN’s corners aren’t good players. That said, I’m not sure why Nick isn’t finding anyone open. CBs must be doing a good job so far.

      • ToastJenkins

        i agree on the logic, but im shocked Nick isnt finding anyone open…maybe stay 3WR but run at them more?

  • Michael Conrad

    So sick of field goals, and that stupid horn.

  • SteveH

    Seems like whatever offensive plan we had isn’t working, hopefully Chip switches it up.

    • GEAGLE

      We just marched down field…abandon the gameplan? Already? Wtf

      • BlindChow

        Yay FG!

        • GEAGLE

          Have you ever watched an NFL game before?
          Or just 50pt BCS blowouts? I don’t understand…I damn sure ain’t abandoning my team midway thru the first and then hang on it’s nuts all week tho :) but to each he own

    • Corry

      I’m not too concerned about Chip changing up his game plan. He seems to be good at that. It’s the D I’m concerned about.

  • ACViking

    How’s Polk doing?

    Won’t see him no more . . .

    • ACViking

      disappointing start for him

      • TheRogerPodacter

        definitely. he seemed to build up some credit with his play last game and may have burned through it all already.

  • jshort

    blame Tommy..he’s the one that wanted to see us down by 14 in the 4 th qtr

    • BlindChow

      We were down 14 in the 4th last game…

  • jshort

    St’s not cool

    • TheRogerPodacter

      yea. i dont want them to kick it to patterson, but giving them the ball at the 40 sucks.

  • jshort

    D not cool

    • BlindChow

      This is exactly the opposite people were predicting. Cassel is lighting up our secondary, Foles can barely move the ball at all through the air.

      • shah8

        Huh? I wouldn’t have *really* predicted that Cassel is lighting up on the secondary, but it’s known that the secondary is weak. I’ve definitely thought that Foles’ unwillingness to throw into NFL windows would be a liability.

        In any event, the issue with Cassel is an underweight arm, but more importantly, he gives up sacks, fumbles, and can make terrible decisions. If you give him obvious reads and good protection, then…

  • Corry

    Holy shit could we cover the guys in the purple jerseys?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      seems like theyre playing a really soft zone. emphasis on soft.

    • Andy124

      Apparently not yet.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    kinda wish demeco wasn’t covering guys 30 yards downfield.

  • ToastJenkins

    more blitzing perhaps?

  • anon

    Was always worried about this we are great at stopping the run but have been terrible at stopping pass all year. we’ll be fine though.

  • GEAGLE

    Who collapsed on sideline?

    • Corry

      Simpson after getting crunched by Ryans.

      • GEAGLE

        Thanks…and YAY lol

  • jshort

    We need some snow!

  • Corry

    Coleman is in there. Didn’t see Chung.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Coleman is in the game. 3 S set or is he in for Chung?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ok, first quarter is over. defense needs to get their shit together ASAP.

  • Iskar36

    I know Patterson is good, but isn’t this beyond even Devin Hester respect? Gotta get at least something a little more out of kickoff coverage team.

    • GEAGLE

      If you listen to the announcers you would think we were kicking it to Deon

      • Iskar36

        Fortunately, I’m at a sports bar without sound.

        • ACViking

          The best way to travel

        • GEAGLE

          Now I’m JEALOUS!!

          Before this game started, I swear I was thinking, I don’t know how people go watch games at bars, cuz I love my living room so much.YOU SIR, HAVE SHOWN ME THE LIGHT!!!

  • SteveH

    awesome Fox infographic for Vikings play selection:

    Plays: 7
    Yards: 12

    • TheRogerPodacter

      right? wth was that?!
      i thought they would be comparing runs & passes – yards vs plays… but instead we get that crap.

      • Crus57

        It was listing Vikings rush plays. Presumably the Fox graphics guys were expecting Peterson too.

  • jshort

    did Castle throw incomplete yet?

    • Corry

      Nope.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      9 for 9 as per the announcers

      • jshort

        have radio on

        • TheRogerPodacter

          wasn’t trying to say “you should have heard that”… i was more implying that “they say its 9 for 9 and i’m not 100% its accurate” : P

      • Andy124

        Yeah, but he doesn’t have a perfect quarterback rating. Only 155.8. He sucks.

  • RobNE

    This is terrifying.

  • SteveH

    Well I hate to be that guy but… this has the stench of a let down game about it.

  • Crus57

    It’s like we gameplanned to not let Peterson beat us, and haven’t adjusted yet.

    • Corry

      Just posted the same thing.

  • Corry

    I wonder if the game plan all week was to play soft zone coverage in preparation for Peterson. Now that he’s out, they should be adjusting to something else.

  • ACViking

    Well . . . that was a forgettable 1st Q.

    Are the Eagles becoming a 2nd Half team?

    • GEAGLE

      This is the strategy…they don’t feel like hearing people complain about not finishing strong :)

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Matt Cassel – 9/9 passing for 168 yards, 1 TD 0 INT.

  • ian_no_2

    Rumor has it DJax had a recording session and had his friend suit up for him.

    • BlindChow

      I was wondering why Djax was a 6’1 white guy today…

  • scratcherk

    they are playing waaaay off, even in the red zone

  • TheRogerPodacter

    there we go. an incompletion!

  • anon

    Sconces!

  • ACViking

    better throw and that’s a TD

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ugh. what is this defense doing today?!

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Doesn’t look like they know either.

  • SteveH

    You gotta love old Castle, he may not have top flight talent, but he has top flight intensity on the field.

  • ACViking

    Vikings got that play from the Eagles.

    The Eagles got that defense from Oakland

  • ICDogg

    Seahawks 3, Giants 2

    • ACViking

      SB in NYC in February.

      Great idea

  • TheRogerPodacter

    phew. that was close. looked like he threw the ball too early due to pressure.

  • GEAGLE

    Someone knock Webb out the game…I don’t even want to see his name on a jersey

    • OregonDucker

      Webb is a dead man!

  • jshort

    Castle coming back to earth

  • Corry

    The defense is making this way too easy still.

  • Andy124

    Not that I expect Coleman to be able to cover Simpson, but he really didn’t. Thanks for the good pressure-bad throw.

    • ACViking

      Better pass — not even a great pass — and that’s a TD

      • OregonDucker

        Maybe our pass rush?

    • Corry

      Yeah, Earl Wolff is missed…

  • http://www.benjaminbrophy.com/ Benjamin Brophy

    Man, this is a frustrating game to watch. What’s with the soft pass coverage

    • Andy124

      Par for course.

    • GEAGLE

      Be easy, we can blow this bitch open in a blink of an eye. D will tighten up..no doubts

  • ACViking

    Another play where a better pass is a TD.

    Twice on that drive Cassel bailed out the Eagles.

  • ICDogg

    Eli Manning leads Geno Smith, 21-20, in interceptions.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Unstoppable.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        Precision.

  • scratcherk

    Corner is #1 priority this offseason.

    • Corry

      1a. 1b is pass rushing OLB.

      • GEAGLE

        OLB, and Safety are the top defensive priorities..Cary n Brad will start the next couple of years, Cary def will, Brad is possible

  • scratcherk

    still no brad smith returning.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    i wish we could kick the ball that far into the endzone…

    • Corry

      I’m surprised they aren’t trying. Henery should have the leg to put that out of the back of the end zone…especially in a dome.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    man. Foles should have kept that one!

  • ACViking

    Vikings still stout inside. Have been for years.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ugh. COME ON OFFENSE! GET IT TOGETHER!

  • SteveH

    Did DSJ just drop that?

    • Corry

      No, looked like he couldn’t get both mitts on it.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      looked like it was wide and he was only barely able to get a hand on it.

  • ACViking

    what happened on the out-pattern to DJax?

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice touch pass by Foles there.

  • GEAGLE

    Uh ohhhhh….here comes the flaming fireballs from the emporer

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ahh. i thought Coop had that one.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      nope. first foot out of bounds.

  • SteveH

    ahhhh damn close.

  • BlindChow

    Smith is looking like a good pickup.

    • Andy124

      Very much so.

    • Ben Hert

      What happened. My game cut out for a sec.

      • BlindChow

        Short pass, broke a tackle, picked up 14 yards.

    • Andy124

      I’m ready for him to be the #3.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Brad Smith?! ok. i like you now.

  • Corry

    Chip Kelly starting to go to the Air Raid Offense.

  • GEAGLE

    It about to start raining in the Dome!!! Believe THAT!!!

  • ACViking

    How can Siragusa say “nice placement” on a pass that takes a wideopen WR out of bounds?

    • Corry

      I hate to agree with Goose, but if the CB didn’t push Cooper, I think that’s a perfectly placed ball.

      • ACViking

        No. Cooper had a big step on the CB.

        Should have been a TD

  • Pennguino

    Damn it. They
    needed that TD. Go Eagles

  • SteveH

    lol Nick Foles running people over.

  • ACViking

    go with the 29 quick pitch. Get McCOy on the edge

  • GEAGLE

    Bad decision nIck

  • TheRogerPodacter

    omg. who else was screaming at shady to just go upfield there?! lol even though it didn’t matter

    • SteveH

      yeah seriously.

    • Eric Carranza

      I definitely did

    • GEAGLE

      Don’t know wtf he was doing out there

  • GEAGLE

    Big balls Chip!!!!!

  • TheRogerPodacter

    is that a flag on that block?

  • Corry

    They’re going tog et Foles on that one.

  • anon

    triple reverse!!

  • Andy124

    Fucking flag.

  • ToastJenkins

    wow he’s got some big hairy cojones

  • TheRogerPodacter

    argh. can’t argue with that flag… thats gotta be called.

    • Corry

      Yeah unfortunately.

  • ToastJenkins

    im sorry thats a horrible flag

    • TommyLawlor

      Nah, legit rule. Trying to protect defenders from cheap shots.

      • Andy124

        Only our defenders should be protected.

  • SteveH

    Fuck. Lol.

  • RobNE

    First shady dances then Foles doesn’t know the rules

  • scratcherk

    Ugh. thats unfortunate. Love the play call. thats guts

  • Andy124

    good.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    Henery showing he has some leg on the FG. now let him boot it through the back of the endzone on the kickoff!

    • TommyLawlor

      Heckuva FG.

    • GEAGLE

      I really really like seeing him hit from distance. It’s one of my biggest playoff concerns

  • Corry

    The offense seems to have adjusted nicely. Just need to finish the drives. The D needs to adjust now.

  • SteveH

    Harrison Smith coulda been called for a personal foul there too to offset, he def picked up Desean needlessly at the end.

    • jshort

      saw that

  • Andy124

    Foles warming up. 6-10 with 2 drops and a screen that lost a yard because Celek blew his block.

    • GEAGLE

      Yup…i have no concerns…andy, we both know it will rain in the dome today

  • ACViking

    Either Foles was not well coached on that play.

    Or Foles made GIGANTIC mental error.

    Just like Avant 2 weeks ago on a long run by McCoy . . . all Foles needed to do was get in the way.

    • SteveH

      Yeah who knows, but QBs are generally not put in positions to make chop blocks.

      • BlindChow

        I can’t be sure, but I get the feeling Chung is somehow to blame on that one.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i’m thinking a mental error. i dont expect the qb to do anything more than get in the way. i think he just got a little carried away.

      • Crus57

        Too much adrenaline I think.

    • Andy124

      He’ll learn from that. Won’t make that mistake again.

    • Baloophi

      He probably didn’t even need to get in the way… Jackson against a LB…

  • Pennguino

    It’s going to be a fight today.

  • ACViking

    Eagles keeping Vikings in this game.

    Never good.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    excellent KOR coverage there

  • SteveH

    That kickoff worked.

  • scratcherk

    These guys are idiots, i’llt ake 25 yard line anyday

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Someone please take Goose’s microphone away. My ears hurt.

  • ACViking

    How was that not offensive INT?

    Looked like Simpson was already engaged before the pass.

    • SteveH

      Refs miss that all the time.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      thats been happening a lot this year (or maybe just the last few games)

    • Crus57

      Happened with #87 of Detroit a lot last week.

    • Eric Carranza

      Only seen it called on us

  • Andy124

    Good cox.

    • GEAGLE

      Logan wasn’t it?

      • Andy124

        I was talking bout the run stop the play before.

        • GEAGLE

          Thanks, missed it

      • TheRogerPodacter

        play before that Cox had the tackle for no gain

  • TheRogerPodacter

    nice hit on Cassel there.

  • GEAGLE

    Logan just Teed off on Castle..those are the types of hits that make a difference and add up later

  • Corry

    C’mon D. Make something happen here.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Well done, Boykin.

  • Corry

    Matt Cassel remembering he’s still Matt Cassel.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    ok defense. get the ball back

  • ToastJenkins

    wow that throw looked like I made it…

  • Andy124

    Cassel 3-8 since his 9-9 start.

  • BlindChow

    I still have to hold my breath every time the opposing QB throws a deep pass…

  • TheRogerPodacter

    UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  • Eric Carranza

    Think maybe Logan injured cassels arm?

  • scratcherk

    ugh

  • Corry

    Aaaand facepalm…good lord, c’mon Trent.

    • Eric Carranza

      He knows we’re not good agains 3 n long

    • Andy124

      Nah. Loadholdt’s hair twitched in the breeze. Should have been a false start.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        i’m thinking he was just looking at the ball. we got caught last week when the DL was saying that the C was squeezing the ball or something

  • Baloophi

    Tommy –

    You mentioned something about stupid mistakes and penalties…

  • scratcherk

    so many near sacks… FRUSTRATING!

  • GEAGLE

    Logan cracks castle, and he hasn’t been right these past two plays…is this were the avalanche begins? Sooner or later it’s coming

    • Baloophi

      I would guess the avalanche will come from the Minnesota roof…

      • GEAGLE

        Logan hits him again,…this will ATleast give him happy feet later

  • TheRogerPodacter

    got another good hit on Cassel

  • Insomniac

    put the damn hands up dline

  • TheRogerPodacter

    “coming in late” riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

    • Andy124

      i don’t think they meant it as illegal late.

      • TheRogerPodacter

        the way i heard it, he wanted a penalty until he saw the replay as he was talking about it and changed his mind lol

  • RobNE

    Just hit cassel. We need pressure

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Are we playing any damn defense today.

    • Baloophi

      We are playing “bend and eventually break” defense

  • Corry

    This is just frustrating.

  • 47_Ronin

    I notice Coleman is in at safety did Chung get injured?

    • Crus57

      Benched, I think.

  • BlindChow

    Billy Davis has lost all his goodwill from the Lions game.

  • Baloophi

    TOP should be interesting this half…

  • GEAGLE

    Way to set the Edge, peel off and shut down the run Barwin

  • scratcherk

    i hate everything right now

  • TheRogerPodacter

    JESUS CHRIST WHAT THE FUCK

  • Insomniac

    ………………………

  • 47_Ronin

    Patterson. Unbelievable

  • GEAGLE

    Who whiffed on that tackle?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      Boykin on the sideline. some LB in the backfield

      • GEAGLE

        Boykin, one of the worst attempted tackles I seen out of this D in 10 months…now I’m ANNOYED!!!

  • shah8

    JUst….hot damn…

  • Baloophi

    Cassel knew to not block Cole in the knees there…

    • TheRogerPodacter

      was kind of wishing that Cole hit that block a little harder…

    • Andy124

      He’s learning a lot from watching Nick.

  • scratcherk

    so much for the 9 straight 21 points streak

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Chip is just saving that one complete game from the team for Dallas.

  • RobNE

    We have no answer for their offense unbelievable

  • Baloophi

    This is one of those games where you go: “At least we get the ball to start the second half.”

    At least we get the ball to start the second half.

  • Corry

    I was hoping the whole “Playing down to the level of the competition” thing was behind us.

  • ACViking

    It’s possible the Eagles aren’t a really good team yet.

    Just throwing that out there.

    This is what we expected the season to be like.

    • BlindChow

      Same here. Living down to my expectations.

    • TheRogerPodacter

      yeahhhhh….. they are who we thought they were

    • GEAGLE

      Call us what you want, we aren’t losing this game

  • Baloophi

    Fire up the converters on the “College Boy Doesn’t Understand Every Week in NFL is Tough” machine…

  • ACViking

    Eagles’ defense just looks a half-step slow.

  • GEAGLE

    Teams who lose their star players, play harder…you have to punch them in the mouth early and let me know that all that rah rah shit they were talking about stepping up in the locker room, ain’t going down today…I would have liked to have done this the easy way…hard way it is…

  • scratcherk

    shouldnt sconces see that coming and drive on it?

    • TheRogerPodacter

      i’m really surprised he wasn’t trying to bait the throw there

  • BlindChow

    Jeez, same play twice in a row and the CB was STILL playing off..

  • scratcherk

    u must be kidding me witht htat flag

  • BlindChow

    Of COURSE there is.

  • GEAGLE

    Better pick up that BS flag

  • scratcherk

    WTF!

  • Andy124

    ayfkm!!!

    • TheRogerPodacter

      youre going to have to break that one down for me lol

      • Corry

        Are You Fucking Kidding Me?

        • TheRogerPodacter

          oh. seems so obvious now…. lol

        • Andy124

          that.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    thats a pretty weak call………..

  • GEAGLE

    What a joke

  • BC1968

    Worst call ever. Especially by a guy who had no right to make it

  • nicolajNN

    That’s fucking horrible

  • Andy124

    line judge needs to overrule that crap.

    • GEAGLE

      Especially if these idiots want to ref in the playoffs…I wouldn’t make that call time of year

  • Eric Carranza

    Refs want us to lose smh

  • Baloophi

    Have Arians add that to his list.

  • Corry

    This is stupid.

  • Insomniac

    O look career backups lighting us up. What’s new?

  • GEAGLE

    I’m going to be pissed all week if the defense gives up more then 21

    • Baloophi

      I’ll be pissed if we lose the game.

      • GEAGLE

        Yeah, but that’s not happening”…so I’m worried about my D’s stats lol

    • anon

      il be more pissed if we lose

    • Andy124

      I’ll be pissed if the Vikings score exactly 21.

    • OregonDucker

      They’ll adjust at halftime.

      • GEAGLE

        It’s going to come in form of an avalanche,.just don’t know when it starts…
        ..
        Sports Science doesn’t kick in til the second half :)

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I miss Hochuli.

  • RobNE

    1 minute 3 timeouts

    • Baloophi

      But no barf bags.

      • RobNE

        I meant plenty of time for vikes to score again

        • Baloophi

          Oof.

  • BC1968

    Ahhh we got it. 2 possessions in a row, fg here, td after half, then watch the blowout guys :)

  • DarthBanner

    What the defense is doing is completely unacceptable given the situation. If they blow this game they do not deserve to make the playoffs.

  • truthchief

    Worst D-Backfield in the NFL

  • BC1968

    I picked a bad week to quit sniffing glue.

    • Pennguino

      It’s a bad week to quit amphetamines.

  • Baloophi

    The big halftime adjustment should be to cake the field in 8 inches of snow.

  • ACViking

    Re: Foles & Comebacks

    Looks like we may get to see Foles with the onus on him to win the game.

    McCoy not doing much. Could change.

    But if it doesn’t, this game’s on Foles.

    • GEAGLE

      Non ti procupare

  • jshort

    need some pts b4 half

  • xeynon

    Defense looks awful in this game. It’s one thing to get killed by Peyton Manning or Jamaal Charles. This is Matt stinking Cassel and Matt Asiata (somebody I’d never heard of before this week). Did they start believing that they’re actually good based on the hype they’ve been getting recently?

    • ACViking

      Not getting pressure.

      Cassel finding guys wide open down field

      • Andy124

        And occasionally missing wide open guys.

      • xeynon

        Vikings have a decent offensive line, but they are down to their third string running back and should be easy to make one dimensional. We should be able to blitz Cassel – he’s got a proven record of stinking under pressure.

  • BobSmith77

    Eagles going to lose this game.

  • shah8

    Guys, don’t forget that Minn’s defense truly sucks.

    • Corry

      So does ours, apparently.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      What’s that say about our Defense?

    • ACViking

      That’s been obvious for the first 30 minutes

    • xeynon

      They may well, but if we can’t get our offense on the field because we can’t stop Matt Cassel and Matt Asiata, it won’t matter.

  • anon

    what’s better crazy stats or crazy qb rating?

  • Baloophi

    This holiday season, Chevy and the Eagles defense is giving more…

  • BobSmith77

    Eagles defense isn’t that good and everybody has been buying into the ‘pts allowed’

    It is a defense that gives up an insane amount of yardage and a ton of big passing plays. Just has been very lucky/good in the red zone and at forcing turnovers.

    • Insomniac

      Really? People are down voting you for the truth?

  • ToastJenkins

    im not one to complain about refs but feels like got jobbed a few times

    • Crus57

      Payback for having calls go our way over the last couple of weeks, perhaps.

  • BobSmith77

    More frustrated by the offense in the 1st half. 6 pts isn’t going to get it done.

    • GEAGLE

      But 30 in the second will. :)

    • ToastJenkins

      as much that the D cant get off the field after that first 3-out

    • scratcherk

      should be 10 but still.

    • anon

      throws are terrible

    • Iskar36

      Offense needs to be putting up more points, but D has done nothing. Offense at least has moved the ball on 2 of their three possessions. PUnching it in would have been nice, but I have way more issues with the D right now.

      Edit: Now 3 of 4 possessions.

  • scratcherk

    Nice to hae timeouts available at the end of a half.

    • GEAGLE

      Hahaha ain’t it? Eagles fans appreciate the small things in life after Andy

  • SteveH

    Foles makin plays.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I must say, I don’t miss the old days when, during a hurry up offense, McNabb and the team would stroll up to the line of scrimmage discussing dinner plans.

    • Baloophi

      Chunky soup?

    • GEAGLE

      Smiling and giggling n shit

  • Baloophi

    Kenny and Moose look like poorly made cyborgs…

    • BobSmith77

      Never used to mind Moose that much but he’s been awful this week and 2 weeks ago.

  • ceteris_paribus1776

    That throw on the run across the body 20 yards to Jackson was a big league throw.

  • TheRogerPodacter

    huge play by mccoy there

  • Insomniac

    Now that is what we needed

  • GEAGLE

    Hate to say it, but get Celek helping out JP on allen

  • ACViking

    take a shot into the EZ

  • TheRogerPodacter

    points right before halftime? i’ll take it.

    • Baloophi

      Agreed.

    • GEAGLE

      Yeah that was bigtime

  • BlindChow

    Henery is game MVP for the Eagles.

  • ACViking

    Sad when your best player in 30 minutes is your FG kicker

  • jshort

    ok we get ball 2nd half

  • RobNE

    Score could be worse. Just win

    • Andy124

      True. Could also be better.

      • Baloophi

        You, sir, are a smart commenter!

        • Andy124

          I agree. :)

    • Baloophi

      It could also be better… just supplying the yang.

      • RobNE

        I’m trying to have a more positive attitude under Chip

        • Baloophi

          Me too. It’s hard to scrape away years of accumulated scabs, though…

          • BlindChow

            This game is reopening all the wounds I thought had healed after the last couple games.

          • RobNE

            Oh I hear you.

          • Baloophi

            Incidentally, scraping away years of accumulated scabs is what Roseman is trying to do…

  • BobSmith77

    Where’s the TDs man?

  • SeanofDead

    Nice Manning face on Eli’s pick to Sherman

  • Crus57

    I’m still not happy with Henery’s kicks all bending in the air.

    • BlindChow

      Ol’ Bendy Kicks Henery.

      • Baloophi

        When his knee flares up you can expect a nor’easter…

  • BobSmith77

    See if the Eagles can make some adjustments and get some pressure on Cassel. At the very least make him move around a bit more and not let him step up in the pocket. Ridiculously too much time in the 1st half.

  • SeanofDead

    No takeaways by defense, cant remember the last time we didnt have one by halftime.

  • OregonDucker

    Both D and O need major adjustments at halftime.

    • xeynon

      O has been moving the ball fine, just needs to stop committing dumb penalties and start turning these drives into touchdowns instead of field goals.

      D on the other hand needs to go back to the drawing board.

      • Iskar36

        Haha. What you said…

      • TheRogerPodacter

        if Foles just got in that guys way instead of diving at his knees, the score would be MUCH more close

    • Iskar36

      O just needs to convert FGs into TDs, but they are moving the ball well in the last three drives. Converting FGs to TDs is not a simple task, but D has simply not done anything so far.

      • Andy124

        Remember the last drive could have been converted if not for the clock.

        • ACViking

          And if the Eagles stopped the Vikings on all 3 of their drives, it would 9-0

          • Andy124

            I hear you. Just trying to focus on the silver. Lining that is.

          • ACViking

            I’m sorry. You’re right. A comment better left unspoken.

          • Andy124

            No apologies. It’s not like you insulted Saint Nick. :)

        • ACViking

          Frustrated!

        • Iskar36

          Potentially. Still have to do it first. Also, had we not been working against the clock, the defense may have been different.

        • Baloophi

          Stupid clock.

  • jshort

    tough…couple sec more…stupid block…We’d be up

    • GEAGLE

      Inches away from hitting castles throwing arm, instead we give up TD

      Big balls Chip calling Tripple reverses on 4th down that should have scored a TD

  • GEAGLE

    If Jason Peters gets Jared Allen under control, we blow this bitch open

    • OregonDucker

      I say isolate Allen and burn ‘em!

      • GEAGLE

        Works for me…or get Celek to help wear him down..
        ..
        Either way, Sports Science our way to a second half explosion

    • BobSmith77

      Put Icy-Hot in his jock at his half time.

  • BobSmith77

    Can the Eagles trade Chung and Coleman for a safety voucher? Chung stinks in coverage and Coleman is a dumbass who manages to be out of position seemingly almost every time he is on the field.

    • Corry

      Suiting up the voucher would probably be more effective than actually having Chung out there.

      • Crus57

        Less dangerous for fellow DBs, certainly.

    • Iskar36

      I swear, the second the Eagles started trying to push Chung as a sure thing at safety that “they loved” I knew he would struggle.

      • BobSmith77

        Chung has been pitiful but honestly I hate Coleman more. Can’t stand him. Non-contributor on special teams, poor fundamental player, and poor tackler. What really irks me though is that he always talks trash and is such a dumb player. Also is a cheap player at times too.

        • Iskar36

          No argument here. Both need to go. But no one was trying to sell Coleman as a good player anymore.

      • OregonDucker

        Blitz Chung every down. That way he does not have to cover.

        • anon

          good run d terrible in coverage that was clear from preseason

  • Baloophi

    Did we dress any TE’s today?

    • Insomniac

      I think I saw Ertz line up as a receiver or was that Maehl?

      • Baloophi

        I think Ertz maybe caught one and got tackled by his towel…

      • TheRogerPodacter

        Ertz had a pass go off his fingers in the first drive

  • RobNE

    Open with a td and 2 and it is tied

  • A_T_G

    Keep the faith. With so many guys out, we had very little information on what they were going to do. We will make the adjustments at the half and finish strong.

    • McNabbulousness

      hoorah!

    • anon

      hahaha what?

    • GEAGLE

      I have NO doubts…glad others feel the same and stop holding on to that bullshit bad Andy karma that plagued us for years. NEW days boys!!
      ..
      This is a very WELL COACHED team and you will see what I mean in this second half…emperor rainmaker comes thru like the Wu, and YOUR defense will make plays!! Take it to the bank!

      • Andy124

        Offense is moving the ball. Not panicking. You can’t talk me out of worrying though. :)

        • GEAGLE

          FAIR!

        • GEAGLE

          I hear the NBA Jam announcer in the background during that last drive saying “he’s heating up”…you know what he says next? “he’s on FIRE!”

  • ACViking

    Why not go 12 formation and run Casey across the formation 2-3 times and pound Jared Allen?

    • GEAGLE

      It’s all coming brotha…Chip ain’t watching the same crap for another 30 min

  • Baloophi

    NEW THREAD! ABORT!

    • McNabbulousness

      red alert

    • jshort

      good …a change was needed!

  • RobNE

    The plan if give cassel time to throw and play a soft zone needs to change
