Lots of interesting storylines in this game so far. Hope for a good 2nd half.

_


  • Corry

    I said it in the last thread: Holy crap. You gotta catch that rook.

  • A_T_G

    I missed the per game coverage, is Polk out again?

    • Corry

      Yeah, I had to google it. He’s out for the game, so I figure he’s either waived with an injury settlement or if they really like him, they’ll IR him.

      • A_T_G

        Wow, Josey is going to make this team.

        • BlindChow

          Were you watching the Damaris Johnson run?

          • A_T_G

            I refuse to acknowledge that reality.

          • BlindChow

            I think Johnson has been pretty good when he’s been given a chance.

          • A_T_G

            LA LA LA LA LA!

  • Corry

    Huh…Damaris Johnson is better at running back than wideout.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Baldy can do math.

  • A_T_G

    I wonder what Barkley could have seen that would have made him decide NOT to throw that.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Probably saw #10 one on one on the outside, but forgot who #10 is now.

      • Crus57

        Pratt.

  • Corry

    Good bye, Alex Henery.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Henery pulled a Manning face.

  • GEAGLE

    OMFG I’m gonna buy this kickers jersey tomorrow!! Free us from henrey!!!!!

  • Corry

    Parkey gets good depth on really high kick offs. Can we keep him, Chip? Can we?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    How has Long looked tonight? Was he playing inside or outside in the 1st half?

    • Corry

      Played inside to start, but I honestly don’t know how to scout/rate him there.

      But I do know Casey Matthews is terrible.

  • GEAGLE

    Yo Dennis Kelly can play…got game experience rookie year. Versatile, switches Sides and positions… I’m not trying to cut him and give him away to a team like the giants for free…someone gots to trade for him!!

    • mksp

      go home, you’re drunk.

      • Mitchell

        That’s my line. Go home, you’re drunk.

  • Crus57

    At this point I’d keep Damaris Johnson over Barner, both for RB and returning.

    • Corry

      Johnson gives you a lot of options in terms of backing up RB, WR, and RS, but he also has like no speed whatsoever.

      • Crus57

        He’s really nothing special certainly, but that’s more than Barner has shown thus far.

      • GEAGLE

        Huff can be a more explosive version in a similar role

    • Media Mike

      Will Chip allow Damaris to “Quack” our lineup over Barner?

      • Crus57

        I think Barner will be ducking out.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Nice stiff arm there from Josey.

  • BlindChow

    MOMAH!

    • GEAGLE

      What did he do? Missed it…I’m in the middle of a draft

      • Crus57

        Made a nice catch over the middle as a LB took out his legs in midair and Momah held on as he hit the ground.

        • GEAGLE

          Nice thanks

        • A_T_G

          That, and gave the Heimlic to a choking nun. Of course, Maehl had a decent block away from the play on a fair catch. They are neck and neck.

          • Crus57

            Well, where necks are involved you want the guy who can do the Heimlich surely.

          • Corry

            Momah also ran the route…on water.

      • Mitchell

        Everything. He does everything.

        • GEAGLE

          He will have to get a restraining order on you

          • Mitchell

            Lol. Honestly Benn or Momah, doesn’t matter. Would like to keep Momah on ps though.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Momahlacherrzzzz

  • A_T_G

    Screw it, can we just pay a fine and keep 60?

    • Corry

      Seriously. I can’t remember when I felt this good about the bottom of the roster.

  • anon

    Think about it 53 and 54yds those are long by NFL standards. We couldn’t trust Henery with anything over 45yds.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Fixed:

      Think about it 53 and 54yds those are long by NFL standards. We couldn’t trust Henery with anything over 25yds.

  • scratcherk

    Anyone else hoping they wouldnt convert to see Parkey again

    • TommyLawlor

      Heck yes.

    • Media Mike

      every team reporter on Twitter was hoping for another long kick.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      You betcha.

  • Christopher Miller

    Is it mechanics? Some of Barkley’s throws look ok in terms of arm strength, and some look wretched.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Lane get your head out of Dallas.

  • Mitchell

    Did Parkey have plenty of leg on his kicks? How have his kick offs been?

    • Corry

      Parkey hit a 53 and 54 yard field goals with room to spare. His kickoffs have been high and deep.

      • A_T_G

        7 to 9 yards deep in the EZ with a ton of hang time. They actually went to commercial break while the ball was in the air on the last two.

      • Mitchell

        That is so hawt!

    • Media Mike

      His kickoffs went deeper than Ice Cube before he put that girl to sleep.

      • Shiad215

        Hilarious !

        • Media Mike

          Damn right it was a good day

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Dammit Barkley, you were supposed Kolb it and run backwards 20 yards.

  • A_T_G

    I knew it. See what Chip can do with a mobile QB!?

  • GEAGLE

    Yes!! We get another kickoff!!! MVP! MVP! MVP!!

    • scratcherk

      ugh.. henery..

      • A_T_G

        We are just resting the starters.

      • GEAGLE

        It’s ok… Give him the rope to hang himself

  • Crus57

    both Parkey’s 53 and 54 yarders are longer than Henery’s career long of 51.

    • Mitchell

      Seriously, what does that tell you about confidence in Henery? Get him outta here

  • CrackSammich

    Braman and Casey Matthews sightings…

    Barkley is actually looking decent now that he’s settled in against the thirds.

    • GEAGLE

      I actually saw Braman get some decent pass rush going

      • CrackSammich

        He got a sack earlier.

        • GEAGLE

          Did he? Nice….that dude is to athletic for his size not to develop into a player that brings something to our defense…

  • CrackSammich

    Any word what happened with Tobin? I only saw him go down, and haven’t been able to find anything else out.

    • Crus57

      Kempski tweeted that xrays were negative, that’s all I’ve seen

  • ACViking

    Have to give Parkey his due.

    Biggest job interview he’ll have for a while, and he shows up with the proverbial ice water . . .

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Yeah, was thinking earlier that you can extrapolate to makes kicks under pressure. Has one game only to make his case, nails 53 & 54 yarders???!!! Ladies and gentlemen we have a winner.

    • GEAGLE

      He really showed up like a boss… That’s how you come out and Make the competition YOUR BITCH!

  • BlindChow

    Kinne to Murphy is the new Montana to Rice.

    • A_T_G

      Does that make Burton the new Dwight Clark?

      • ACViking

        Russ Francis?

        • A_T_G

          Sorry, you’ve gone too deep for me.

  • CrackSammich

    Burton has got to be making himself a spot on this team. Hope the dude has been a ST monster.

  • A_T_G

    I wonder if RGIII will be Foles’ backup in a few years.

    • Mitchell

      That would be great lol. Robert just seems way too cocky for me.

      • GEAGLE

        God no…Mcnabb Jr

    • Crus57

      maybe Johnny Manziel once he blows up the browns.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      In a few years, I want Peyton Manning backing up Foles.

      • GEAGLE

        In a few years we can prob get Peyton mannings son

    • GEAGLE

      Prob won’t be able to beat out Kinney

      Considering what Chip does with QBs.. If Logan Thomas can look like he has under Bruce Arians,,who knows whet he looks like training under Chip

  • scratcherk

    Nice return! Almost field goal range…..

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Damaris Johnson, too little too late? Or enough versatility that he gets the 53rd spot?

    • Crus57

      I don’t know if he’s done enough, but I don’t really see what more he could’ve done this game. If he doesn’t make it, it’s not based on tonight.

    • CrackSammich

      Maybe enough to make another team.

    • scratcherk

      Why does he look shiftier this game than he ever has…

      • Anders

        Looks like he did his rookie year imo

      • GEAGLE

        Cuz it was looking like his last night in an eagle jersey lol

  • Corry

    Josey seems like he’s pretty damn good at reading his blocks and bursting through…and apparently so is Damaris Johnson.

  • BlindChow

    Wow. I think Johnson makes the team.

    • Corry

      Yeah. Keep the man at running back.

    • A_T_G

      LA LA L… okay, damn it, you can keep him. But I still get to keep Josey.

    • GEAGLE

      If we cut him, shame no one ever let him run some zone reads before

  • CrackSammich

    Jesus. Now we have 6 RBs trying to make the team.

    • A_T_G

      Not so much, 3 are hurt.

  • GEAGLE

    Did Alex henrey just kickoff?

    • Corry

      Yeah. High and about 4 yards deep.

      • GEAGLE

        LOL was that the first time he kicked tonight? Are they trying to rub his nose in his competitions big day?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Marsh’s finest moment.

  • Corry

    I wonder if they’ll keep 5 running backs and 5 wide receivers if Johnson is the 5th RB….

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Enough time to get us in Figgie range.

    • A_T_G

      What do we need, 15 yards?

      • Corry

        Nah. There’s no wind. Parkey should be able to hit from where we took over.

        • Dragon_Eagle

          Need enough room so the holder doesn’t sit out of the back of the end zone. Another 5 yards should do it.

          • Corry

            Don’t underestimate the Parkey.

  • Corry

    I don’t think there’s any way they can get Josey on the practice squad. Keep that man on the roster.

  • A_T_G

    What are they doing when they all stand in a circle, talking before the play?

    • BlindChow

      Exchanging recipes.

      • Maggie

        How to make CB toast?

    • Corry

      Group hug.

  • GEAGLE

    How did Vick look Iike tonight? Did philly crowd Cheer Vick?

    • Corry

      He got one snap and yes he got cheered.

      • A_T_G

        I guess sports science really works. He usually wouldn’t get hurt until the second drive when he played for us.

    • Crus57

      He had one play, a handoff. Got an ovation.

      • GEAGLE

        Oh, it was one of those celebratory deals…so who QB for jets before taj Boyd?

        • Crus57

          one of the Simms kids, I forget which

          • GEAGLE

            Oh thats right….

    • P_P_K

      Geno Smith was interviewed and said the Jets players had a bet regarding if Vick would be cheered or booed. Mike got a real nice round of applause and Geno said he won some money on that.

  • Crus57

    24pts in the second half and we never even used a timeout.

    • Corry

      Our scrubs are waaay better than the Jets’ scrubs.

  • GEAGLE

    Man,,, Chip has some decisions on his hands…is 1 game enough to end the Alex era?

    • Dragon_Eagle

      No, but last year plus this preseason is.

      • GEAGLE

        Hope so man….

    • A_T_G

      Wa? He has some tough calls to make. I don’t think that is one of them.

      I think Chip just said, “See, you guys were all worked up that I made a huge mistake this off season. I can fix the kicker problem in three days time. Relax.”

  • GEAGLE

    Funny how the announcers were talking about how the giants tried to spite us and play keep away with their kicker and how that spiteful crap happens in the NFL… Sorry Maggie, try again

    • Maggie

      Eagle announcers?

  • anon

    Manziels passing record broking in the first game – against SC no less.

  • anon

    Anyone think we let Josey play so long so that he can get a job somewhere else? Or did everyone else get hurt?
