Stay healthy. Get the ball to the WRs. Keep the opponent under 40 points.

How are those for some goals?

    No injuries. No injuries. No injuries.

  2. 2 Corry said at 7:33 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    No injuries and don’t suck.

    Good evening fine Eagle’s compatriots, the past 2 times have been a little bit “oh this is terrible, don’t worry, it’s preseason”. Maybe we can switch it up with some preseason Euphoria, just let me get my hopes up way too high once this preseason and I’ll be happy!

  4. 4 Tumtum said at 7:38 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Woooow announcers aren’t even at the game.

  5. 5 Anders said at 7:39 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    and the Steelers announcers know shit

  6. 6 Ark87 said at 7:43 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    right!? “Wow 2 TE sets, thats odd to see, Eagles don’t use 2 TE sets ever!”

  7. 7 Anders said at 7:50 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    They said we rarely used a TE

  8. 8 Corry said at 7:38 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I like it. Let’s do more of this.

  9. 9 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:39 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Seen enough Shady. Sit him.

  10. 10 SteveH said at 7:39 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Timmons just wrecked the shit out of that play lol.

  11. 11 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:40 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Good play by the DB.

  12. 12 Corry said at 7:40 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Barbre got bull rushed right into Foles almost.

  13. 13 SteveH said at 7:41 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Ok, not a terrible start offensively. Little rust looks like but not too bad.

  14. 14 Ark87 said at 7:41 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    guys, no flags!

  15. 15 scratcherk said at 7:42 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I hate NFLN broadcasts. It sounds so sterile… Wheres the crowd noise? It’s ruining hte game..

  16. 16 SteveH said at 7:42 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Yeah I mean Baldi isn’t perfect but I’ll take him over this bland nonsense.

  17. 17 Crus57 said at 7:42 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Which deity did I annoy to be inflicted with the Steelers announcers at an Eagles home game?

  18. 18 Anders said at 7:43 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    So far this pre season Steelers > Pat > Bears in terms of not knowing shit about the Eagles

  19. 19 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:43 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    God of NFL revenue.

  20. 20 Crus57 said at 7:44 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Seriously. Every bloody section of the broadcast has a different sponsor, including the coinflip.

  21. 21 Corry said at 7:45 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    3rd down is still our nemesis.

  22. 22 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:45 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Of course.

  23. 23 scratcherk said at 7:46 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    ouch.

  24. 24 Ark87 said at 7:46 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Jenkins, that’s a running back, got wrap them up, throwing shoulders wont work

  25. 25 SteveH said at 7:46 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    lead with his shoulder. Whatever.

  26. 26 jshort said at 7:46 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    put dresses on em

  27. 27 scratcherk said at 7:46 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    The fact that NFL Network is clueless about how to broadcast an NFL game is ironic

  28. 28 Ark87 said at 7:47 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Geagle is probably lovin that haha

  29. 29 scratcherk said at 7:47 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    is there an online radio feed?

  30. 30 Corry said at 7:48 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Hey! we got off the field!

  31. 31 SteveH said at 7:48 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Who had the pressure on that near int?

  32. 32 Corry said at 7:48 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Bair is who the announcers called.

  33. 33 Crus57 said at 7:48 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    On the replay it was Bair ’93

  34. 34 Ark87 said at 7:48 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    bairly 30

  35. 35 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:50 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Bair Knuckles

  36. 36 Crus57 said at 7:50 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Bairzerker?

  37. 37 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:48 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    An opposing team punt!!! Superbowlzzzz!!!!

  38. 38 Ark87 said at 7:50 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Gotta give the steelers people this, It seems like they really like the ‘Meco hit, and not because it gave them easy yards.

  39. 39 Corry said at 7:51 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    if any team is going to appreciate hard hitting defense, it’ll be Pittsburgh.

  40. 40 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:50 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Azz sighting!

  41. 41 Corry said at 7:52 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Can we not do that toss play again? Like ever?

  42. 42 MattE said at 7:52 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    DeMeco!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. 43 Anders said at 7:53 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Also one shouldnt use the read option against the Steelers because of their LBs. Somebody forgot to tell Pryor that last year

  44. 44 SteveH said at 7:54 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    SOMEONE GET CELEK A NEW HELMET!

  45. 45 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:54 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Celek needs to review the operating instructions on the chin strap.
    Love it though.

  46. 46 SteveH said at 7:55 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Barbre gave up the QB hit. Starting to worry about him.

  47. 47 Corry said at 7:55 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    i was just typing that. He’s not looked great.

  48. 48 SteveH said at 7:56 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    He got beat earlier too. Worrisome.

  49. 49 Ark87 said at 7:56 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Suck because Matthews was open

  50. 50 SteveH said at 7:56 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Maclin fails to make the tough grab, looks for a flag. Shocker.

  51. 51 GEAGLE said at 7:58 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    He should have gotten the flag if they are going to be consistent about the way they call these games.. As soon as he went to make his move inside the corner put his hand on Maclin. That’s supposed to be illegal now

  52. 52 Ark87 said at 8:00 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Geagle, you see Meco set the tone, thought of you when i saw it lol

  53. 53 GEAGLE said at 8:00 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Damn right….I wanted to post about it but couldn’t turn my comp on in time… My man!!!

  54. 54 Anders said at 8:00 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Was actually knocked down by the DB, but based on earlier game, they could easily have called iilegal contact

  55. 55 GEAGLE said at 8:01 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    You aren’t allowed to touch the WR after 5 yards…hell yeah it should have been a flag THIS YEAR

  56. 56 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:57 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Incomplete, but great throw under pressure. Window the size of an iPhone.

  57. 57 Corry said at 7:57 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    That was a great route by Celek. Remember when he was stuck behind LJ Smith?

  58. 58 SteveH said at 7:58 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Tangential: The new white uni’s are 100x better than the new black uni’s.

  59. 59 Corry said at 7:58 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    That was text book execution of a screen. Holy crap, beautiful.

  60. 60 Ark87 said at 7:59 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    and Maclin holding up his block, great to see

  61. 61 Flyin said at 8:01 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Was that a cheap shot by Palomalu on Maclin?

  62. 62 Ark87 said at 8:01 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I wondered that too, it is possible he was watching Shady and didn’t know Mac was there

  63. 63 Flyin said at 8:02 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Maybe payback for the DeMeco hit.

  64. 64 scratcherk said at 8:01 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    he is rather feisty at times… and a pussy at others..

  65. 65 GEAGLE said at 7:59 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    It’s nice to see it have success to the right side because in the screen game and run game, OL getting to the next level is when you really notice the drop off in athleticism from Lane to Barbre, so I’m pleased seeing screen success to Barbres side

  66. 66 Corry said at 8:00 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Barbre wasnt’ out in front though. That was the Toddfather and Kelce.

  67. 67 Crus57 said at 8:00 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    It did seem to be Kelce and Herremans who were out in front of Shady though. Kelce threw a nice block.

  68. 68 GEAGLE said at 8:03 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    It was those two who were out in front, and Maclin holding up a good block….still nice seeing we can execute that way to the right side without big Bane johnson

  69. 69 MattE said at 8:00 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    same look as last play.

  70. 70 jshort said at 8:01 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    who kicked that ball?

  71. 71 Anders said at 8:02 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Henery

  72. 72 Ark87 said at 8:02 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    don’t know if I should be throwing up the frowny face or….

  73. 73 scratcherk said at 8:02 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Was that henery kicking off?

  74. 74 Anders said at 8:02 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    yes

  75. 75 Corry said at 8:02 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    “NFL announces the suspension of Alex Henery for PEDs following his kick off out of the back of the end zone.”

  76. 76 Crus57 said at 8:03 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    More like they spot test him for performance enhancing drugs.

  77. 77 Ark87 said at 8:03 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    LOL, subjected to immediate piss test

  78. 78 GEAGLE said at 8:05 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I LOLed

  79. 79 Anders said at 8:03 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Nice to see a TD against a good defense in the Steelers, but Foles needs to be more accurate.

  80. 80 Ark87 said at 8:04 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    true, wasn’t sharp as you want to see him

  81. 81 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:04 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Did he just say “LeGarrett Blunt?”

  82. 82 SteveH said at 8:04 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Nnamdi Asomugha with the tight coverage.

  83. 83 scratcherk said at 8:04 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    looked like shady was looking at his hand on the sideline

  84. 84 GEAGLE said at 8:04 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    If you can’t have incidental contact after 5 yards then Maclin needs to get that flag

  85. 85 Ark87 said at 8:05 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    agreed

  86. 86 GEAGLE said at 8:06 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Notice how DL shoots gaps at times and don’t always two gap

  87. 87 Ark87 said at 8:06 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Still have nightmares of Blount in the preseason lol

  88. 88 Anders said at 8:10 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Blount is a bruiser for sure.

  89. 89 MattE said at 8:06 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Ced Thorton looking good.

  90. 90 MattE said at 8:07 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    and Beau Allen jumping is a ++

  91. 91 scratcherk said at 8:06 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Shady getting thumb xrays

  92. 92 SteveH said at 8:07 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    serious?

  93. 93 Corry said at 8:07 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Yeah. Spuds just reported it.

  94. 94 SteveH said at 8:08 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Well, at least no danger of a season ender. Even with a break could be back for opening day with a cast.

  95. 95 scratcherk said at 8:09 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    would be tough to hold the ball with a cast. Depends which arm i guess

  96. 96 GEAGLE said at 8:08 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Cox just looped behind Beau and forced Ben to get rid of the ball for the incomplete.. Media won’t give him respect for that since he didn’t get the sack, but that’s effective defense by Big Cox

  97. 97 MattE said at 8:09 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    can anybody find Cox?! I’m trying to find Cox!!!!

    (Walk Hard)

  98. 98 Jack Waggoner said at 8:10 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Looking for a picture of Long walking next to Cox

  99. 99 Anders said at 8:09 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Coverage has been more tight today, nice to see

  100. 100 Ark87 said at 8:09 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    One of our blockers almost F-d that one up big

  101. 101 Corry said at 8:10 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    He’s currently in a staring contest with Coach Fipp…and losing.

  102. 102 Arby1 said at 9:17 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Satan is the only one who can win that contest and even he loses sometimes.

  103. 103 shah8 said at 8:10 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    announcing is horrible

  104. 104 Ark87 said at 8:10 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    seems to be 3 separate broadcasts, all sound bad

  105. 105 SteveH said at 8:11 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I’ve got Kurt Warner and some guy. Very generic analysis.

  106. 106 Ark87 said at 8:11 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Mac lookin fast

  107. 107 GEAGLE said at 8:12 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    See how FOles trusts coop. Love their chemistry

  108. 108 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:12 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Koop!!!

  109. 109 shah8 said at 8:12 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    didn’t see many slants last year

  110. 110 SteveH said at 8:13 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I still like Josey better than Tucker. Tuck just looks plodding to me, a little too slow.

  111. 111 scratcherk said at 8:15 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I was thinking the opposite. Liking tucker better

  112. 112 Crus57 said at 8:13 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Pretty sure that playing a snap without your mouthguard in is a penalty, isn’t it? Foles left his stuck in his facemask that play.

  113. 113 GEAGLE said at 8:13 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Glad to see friar tuck back, but he has to get that first

  114. 114 GEAGLE said at 8:14 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Friar tuck!!!!!

  115. 115 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:14 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Good hard running, Tuck.

  116. 116 GEAGLE said at 8:14 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    FOles ate that blitz

  117. 117 Corry said at 8:15 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Brent Celek is a tough motherf***er.

  118. 118 SteveH said at 8:15 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    For the love of… will someone fit Celek with a helmet that doesn’t pop off every time he gets hit?

  119. 119 scratcherk said at 8:15 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Celek getting destroyed this preseason.

  120. 120 Ark87 said at 8:15 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    time to sit him

  121. 121 GEAGLE said at 8:15 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    He loves it

  122. 122 Flyin said at 8:19 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I think he needs to refit his helmet. For some reason he likes it loose.

  123. 123 SteveH said at 8:16 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Coop got turned around, was facing the wrong way otherwise probably a TD.

  124. 124 Anders said at 8:19 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    or if Foles had passed to Matthews

  125. 125 Corry said at 8:16 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I only ever see the Eagles get called for Off. Interference, I swear.

  126. 126 shah8 said at 8:16 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    That was a bad play by cooper. Both in the pushoff and in trying to grab the ball. That was catchable for normal procedure.

  127. 127 Jack Waggoner said at 8:18 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I didn’t see interference

  128. 128 shah8 said at 8:19 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    hand fighting? Only saw it once. If it was interference, it was pretty soft, yes.

  129. 129 shah8 said at 8:19 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    thing is, Foles put the ball where only Cooper can get it…shouldn’t have to fight.

  130. 130 GEAGLE said at 8:20 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Like that?

  131. 131 SteveH said at 8:17 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Sproles looks like a really fast 5th grader out there.

  132. 132 GEAGLE said at 8:18 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    He reminds me of angry marlon Wayans in “lil man”… He is like a mini angry gangsta out there

  133. 133 MattE said at 8:21 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Foles has to bend down to hand the ball off to him.

  134. 134 Anders said at 8:20 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Foles looks shacky, yet he has a 102 passer rating

  135. 135 SteveH said at 8:22 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Looks pretty good to me. Missed that one corner route to Celek, otherwise pretty good.

  136. 136 Anders said at 8:26 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Way better this drive than the first two

  137. 137 GEAGLE said at 8:21 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Let’s get the pope a TD

  138. 138 MattE said at 8:22 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    WOW. Coop you gotta catch that.

  139. 139 Corry said at 8:23 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Has anyone seen Coop’s hands? Anyone?

  140. 140 GEAGLE said at 8:23 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I like that play

  141. 141 A_T_G said at 8:23 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I’d like it better if they called the TD.

  142. 142 GEAGLE said at 8:24 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    We could have challenged It. Chip don’t care

  143. 143 A_T_G said at 8:26 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Yep. Why steal an extra rep from your own offense?

  144. 144 GEAGLE said at 8:27 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Right… We got a goaline rep with a pass play, and short yardage goal line run play rep against live defenses…get some nice work in

  145. 145 Daniel Spector said at 8:23 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Coop is rusty

  146. 146 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:23 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Challenge flag?

  147. 147 SteveH said at 8:23 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I thought Maclin was in.

  148. 148 Ark87 said at 8:24 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    ditto

  149. 149 Daniel Spector said at 8:24 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    nah

  150. 150 Insomniac said at 8:23 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Why are people surprised at Cooper dropping balls?

  151. 151 MattE said at 8:24 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Sproles at the goal line!

  152. 152 Daniel Spector said at 8:24 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Bang it in with Tucker

    Darren Sproles: Goal line back?

  154. 154 Ark87 said at 8:25 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    nifty run

  155. 155 Insomniac said at 8:25 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    He’s bouncy.

  156. 156 MattE said at 8:26 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Sproles Line Back?

  157. 157 A_T_G said at 8:25 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Sproles looked like a bee trying to get out of a closed window. He kept bouncing back and going again. Great balance.

  158. 158 Ark87 said at 8:28 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Most attention Eagles fans have ever paid on a kickoff

  159. 159 scratcherk said at 8:29 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    who kicked off?

  160. 160 A_T_G said at 8:30 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    The Eagles did, aren’t you paying attention?

  161. 161 Ark87 said at 8:31 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    crap, Par….key?

  162. 162 SteveH said at 8:29 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Kendricks! nice play.

  163. 163 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:29 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    There we go. That is LB play.

  164. 164 Insomniac said at 8:29 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Emmanuel Aecho

  165. 165 A_T_G said at 8:29 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Doh!

  166. 166 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:29 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    And that was not.

  167. 167 GEAGLE said at 8:31 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Sucks. Silver lining, is like Malcolm trying to strip the WR instead of just tackling

  168. 168 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:30 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Did we resign Chung since last week?

  169. 169 SteveH said at 8:30 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    That’s the kind of leadership we brought Jenkins in for.

  170. 170 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:32 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Agree with Baldi here. What’s the DB supposed to do? Step aside?

  171. 171 SteveH said at 8:32 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Yeah, its pretty much horse shit.

  172. 172 Corry said at 8:32 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Yeah it’s dumb.

  173. 173 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:32 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Give the DBs red capes and call it bullfighting.

  174. 174 Corry said at 8:33 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    They’re going to have to start playing with their hands up in the air.

  175. 175 Corry said at 8:32 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    So what? The DBs are supposed to retreat when the WR initiates contact? That’s BS.

  176. 176 Anders said at 8:33 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Unless you are Cooper

  177. 177 GEAGLE said at 8:32 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Welcome Nolan

  178. 178 Ark87 said at 8:33 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    off of kendricks pressure it looked like

  179. 179 SteveH said at 8:33 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Kendricks with the nice blitz, Carroll cleans up with the nice pick. I like our D tonight.

  180. 180 GEAGLE said at 8:33 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    What linemen pressured Big Ben into that INT?
    … This is why I hate when media only talks about sacks… Worry about pressure

  181. 181 SteveH said at 8:34 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Was Kendricks on a blitz.

  182. 182 Daniel Spector said at 8:34 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    kendricks

  183. 183 Anders said at 8:34 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Blitzing Kendricks

  184. 184 A_T_G said at 8:33 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    So, we just need receivers fast enough to run directly into the defenders and we can march down the field 5-yard illegal contact penalty by 5-yard illegal contact penalty?

    That was a ridiculous call on Fletcher. Even by the standards of this preseason.

  185. 185 Insomniac said at 8:34 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I would love to see what could have been if we had drafted Dri Archer.

  186. 186 A_T_G said at 8:35 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    We would probably be up by, like, two touchdowns before the half.

  187. 187 Insomniac said at 8:36 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I’m sorry but Chip clearly sucks since he only scored twice in like 10 minutes.

  188. 188 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:35 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Gentlemen, if I’m and OC or WR coach, I’m watching film diligently for how to draw flags and teaching it every day.

  189. 189 shah8 said at 8:35 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    OH NO

  190. 190 Corry said at 8:35 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Oh no no no…

  191. 191 SteveH said at 8:35 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Looks like a hyperextended knee maybe?

  192. 192 GEAGLE said at 8:37 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Looks like it. His leg seemed straight, I didn’t see any twisting…can you tear something without twisting your knee?

  193. 193 Ark87 said at 8:38 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    sadly yes, but it can just be a hyper extension too, very painful but not devestating

  194. 194 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:35 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Same knee?

  195. 195 Corry said at 8:36 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Looked like the right knee. Wasn’t it the left one last year?

  196. 196 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:36 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Can’t recall. Anyone?

  197. 197 MattE said at 8:36 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    fu* f*ck f**k

  198. 198 Jack Waggoner said at 8:36 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Noooooooo

  199. 199 Shiad215 said at 8:36 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    There goes Maclin!

  200. 200 Ark87 said at 8:36 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    hoo boy

  201. 201 Ark87 said at 8:37 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Hurts to see McCoy there with his boy, also got some medical equipment on his thumb, man this…

  202. 202 SteveH said at 8:37 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    PHEW!!!

  203. 203 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:37 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Oh good. Just Kearsed it.

  204. 204 Shiad215 said at 8:37 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Thank you Jesus!

  205. 205 Daniel Spector said at 8:37 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Am I the only one more worried about Huffs health than Maclins

  206. 206 Insomniac said at 8:38 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Most likely you are. Huff has done squat in the league.

  207. 207 A_T_G said at 8:38 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I think you are, yes.

  208. 208 Jack Waggoner said at 8:38 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Not counting his mama

  209. 209 Daniel Spector said at 8:40 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    lol just checking

  210. 210 Jack Waggoner said at 8:37 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Maclin walked off the field.

  211. 211 GEAGLE said at 8:39 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Yeah no worries… Mac knew right away when he tore ACL… He knows it’s not serious

  212. 212 SteveH said at 8:38 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    LOL! Worst screen ever!

  213. 213 Corry said at 8:38 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Eh, Sproles fell down…

  214. 214 SteveH said at 8:38 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Tripped over his own guy, they both fell down lol.

  215. 215 Corry said at 8:38 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    That was a good tackle by Kelce. Maybe he could be a modern day Bednarik?

  216. 216 Insomniac said at 8:39 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Is that what a good safety looks like?

  217. 217 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:39 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Its the hair.

  218. 218 Crus57 said at 8:39 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    The play was for #43, Foles threw it to #43.. just the wrong one.

  219. 219 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:40 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    THAT is what good safety play looks like.

  220. 220 nopain23 said at 8:40 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    yes sir!!!

  221. 221 Corry said at 8:40 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I don’t know if I should be impressed with the defense or pity Pittsburgh fans.

  222. 222 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:41 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Look at their trophy case. No pity for them.

  223. 223 jshort said at 8:40 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Think Chung could do that

  224. 224 Corry said at 8:41 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    No. Chung would be tackling Cary Williams.

  225. 225 Daniel Spector said at 8:41 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Chung would have blocked for the WR

  226. 226 Shiad215 said at 8:41 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Kendricks in beast mode!

  227. 227 SteveH said at 8:41 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Breaking: Alex Henerey traded to the Steelers at the start of the 2nd quarter…

  228. 228 nopain23 said at 8:42 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Get maclin out please!!!!! !!!!!!

  229. 229 A_T_G said at 8:42 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    That was smart. Don’t let it get in his head.

  230. 230 MattE said at 8:42 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Jenkins ain’t got hips? yeah ok!

  231. 231 A_T_G said at 8:43 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Josey, please. I’ve seen enough of these other guys.

  232. 232 Corry said at 8:43 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I’m really rooting for Josey to make the roster.

  233. 233 Daniel Spector said at 8:44 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Over Tucker?

  234. 234 Corry said at 8:45 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Yup. Tucker has size, but I think Josey is a similar runner. There’s also the whole feel good story with Josey.

  235. 235 Insomniac said at 8:45 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    And the fact that he’s probably just better than Tucker..

  236. 236 Daniel Spector said at 8:45 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Corry yeah I love Josey’s story but seeing the power Tucker has is refreshing

  237. 237 Ark87 said at 8:44 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    DO IT!

  238. 238 Insomniac said at 8:44 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Maehl and Tucker? Bring out Momah and Josey already.

  239. 239 Jack Waggoner said at 8:45 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    It’s the Chipper and Fipper show

  240. 240 MattE said at 8:46 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Don’t ever insult Dorenbos

  241. 241 bdbd20 said at 8:46 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Josey/Tucker will come down to blitz pickup. Expect Tucker to have a massive edge.

  242. 242 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:47 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Shut the game clock down!! Don’t make me take my belt off!!!

  243. 243 Ark87 said at 8:48 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    That was pretty epic. Seems like our new boards have mystified the operators

  244. 244 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:48 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Sun went down.

  245. 245 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:48 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    and no wind.

  246. 246 Ark87 said at 8:49 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    hah, nice

  247. 247 Corry said at 8:50 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Beau Allen is shaping up to be one hell of a 7th round find.

  248. 248 Ark87 said at 8:51 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Jason Kelce of the defense

  249. 249 Nicodemus_09 said at 9:00 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Isn’t that a (potentially) awesome draft surprise?!

  250. 250 nopain23 said at 8:50 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    seeing a lot of cut back runs working against us tonight

  251. 251 bdbd20 said at 8:51 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Tommy wrote a good piece on our defensive philosophy a few weeks ago. It’s gonna look ugly between the 20’s at times. Lots of 4-5 yard plays will be given up. All predicated on turnovers.

  252. 252 A_T_G said at 8:52 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I missed the discussion in the very beginning. Did we all shake our heads in superior disappointment that the Steelers didn’t bench the players busted for pot from a PRESEASON game?

  253. 253 Ark87 said at 8:52 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    ROC solid…here we go

  254. 254 Insomniac said at 8:52 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    If he missed it, Dri would have been gone. Good job Roc.

  255. 255 Corry said at 8:52 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Xrays on Shady’s thumb is negative.

  256. 256 A_T_G said at 8:53 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Well, that is positive.

  259. 259 Anders said at 8:52 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Eagles playing a lot of 2nd strings early again

  260. 260 Jack Waggoner said at 8:59 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    They should probably use all second stringers by now

  261. 261 jshort said at 8:53 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Would like to see Marsh against 1st team….hehe

  262. 262 MattE said at 8:53 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Kendricks is all over. Awesome

  263. 263 Ark87 said at 8:54 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Roc, dude, get away from that ball

  264. 264 A_T_G said at 8:56 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    What source are you using to view the game? I am watching the 4th play on offense on ch 6 when you posted this.

  265. 265 jshort said at 8:54 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    God I think i sawflames coming out his earholes

  266. 266 Insomniac said at 8:55 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Watching Braman tower over Spoles is kinda funny

  267. 267 MattE said at 8:56 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    He caught him, literally.

  268. 268 bdbd20 said at 8:57 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Wait ’till they line up Momah and Sproles together.

  269. 269 bdbd20 said at 8:56 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Love all the motion so far. I don’t remember that too much from last season.

  270. 270 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:56 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    More Matthews please.

  271. 271 Mitchell said at 9:11 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Casey?

  272. 272 Ark87 said at 8:56 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    no body signals first down like the Hoc but Brent Celek

  273. 273 Nicodemus_09 said at 8:56 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I’ll admit to being your typical superstitios Eagles fan. Now, I cannot see the game tonightso I don’t know how it played out. However, when I saw Foles had an INT & given that he’s had a less t huh an stellar camp, i’m beginning to worry that Nick saved up all of his bad throws for 2014. I PRAY I’m wrong! Also, along the lines of paranoia, am I the onlyone who feels impending doom like there is a pi as no about to drop on Maclin?

  274. 274 Corry said at 8:57 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Don’t worry. Sproles fell down on a screen and Polamalu made a good play.

  275. 275 Insomniac said at 8:57 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Foles is doing fine. His INT was kind of his fault though.

  276. 276 SteveH said at 8:57 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    How was it Foles’ fault that Sproles fell down?

  277. 277 Insomniac said at 8:58 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Do you not know the feeling of being stared down by someone who’s like a foot taller than you?

  278. 278 SteveH said at 8:58 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Touche.

  279. 279 anon said at 9:03 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    hes gotta look before throwing.

  280. 280 Nicodemus_09 said at 9:21 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    OK thanks man. My hope is that Foles is just one of those cats that has ho hum camps & that the regular season brings the beast out in him.SUCKS I can’t watch! I hate Vermont!!!

  281. 281 A_T_G said at 9:00 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I think they replaced the piano in the blimp with a synthesizer this year.

  282. 282 SteveH said at 8:58 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    We’re humming on O and D, far cry from games 1 and 2.

  283. 283 anon said at 9:02 PM on August 21st, 2014:

  285. 285 MattE said at 9:00 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    yup. Fastest thing out of Cal since…. uhhhhh. He’s good.

  286. 286 Insomniac said at 9:02 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Since Desean?

  287. 287 A_T_G said at 9:10 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Who?

  288. 288 Crus57 said at 8:59 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Steelers don’t have 100yds of offense yet and we’re at the 2 minute warning

  289. 289 SteveH said at 9:00 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Sproles needed to be 6 inches taller there lol.

  290. 290 Dragon_Eagle said at 9:00 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Good decision, Nick.

  291. 291 Ark87 said at 9:01 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    catching radius 🙁

  292. 292 Ark87 said at 9:01 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    stared that one down a bit

  293. 293 Ark87 said at 9:02 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    who’s the kicker!?

  294. 294 Dragon_Eagle said at 9:03 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Henery

  295. 295 shah8 said at 9:03 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I think Foles is mad at Cooper for something?

  296. 296 Ark87 said at 9:04 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    yeah some fire there, definite mis communicate, Foles stared that one down, was mos def an option route, they read it different

  297. 297 Daniel Spector said at 9:04 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Can Foles get mad?

  298. 298 Jack Waggoner said at 9:06 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    You can tell by when he says darn instead of shucks

  299. 299 Insomniac said at 9:05 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    He dropped a TD pass and then ran the wrong route? Foles got Cooper paid this year..he should be mad. Demand excellence like the great modern QBs like Brady and Manning.

  300. 300 Mitchell said at 9:10 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I really enjoyed watching him talk to Cooper like that. That shows leadership and a command of the offense. Cooper has looked like he ate a bunch of popcorn and now his fingers are all buttery.

    He did have a nice tough catch earlier, so really surprised he dropped that TD

  302. 302 Anders said at 9:05 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Foles with more passing attempts this game than he averaged last year

    Henery has looked terrific tonight……think he noticed the trade for the new kicker???

  304. 304 Ark87 said at 9:05 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Blount! just like last preseason nightmares!

  305. 305 Anders said at 9:08 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    He can make some nice cuts for a big guy

  306. 306 Ark87 said at 9:09 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Agreed, It’s like no one can even fathom it coming, I still clearly remember that damn keystone cop run.

  307. 307 Ark87 said at 9:06 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    2nd string D out there

    B Grizzle.

  309. 309 Ark87 said at 9:08 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Just can’t get rid of him yet, water in the desert man

  310. 310 SteveH said at 9:09 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I just hate the fact that he won’t see the snaps. Him and Curry man, in a 4-3 one game with Cox and Cole on the other side, woulda been beast.

  311. 311 Corry said at 9:06 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I don’t need to see anymore of the starters tonight.

  312. 312 A_T_G said at 9:08 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Agreed.

    Really could not have asked for a better first half – minor injury scares aside.

  314. 314 A_T_G said at 9:08 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Agreed.

  315. 315 A_T_G said at 9:07 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I like the sack/fumble. I hate the way he tapped the OLineman and walked away without waiting for the whistle.

  316. 316 RogerPodacter said at 9:09 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    anyone else notice that part where they put coach Fipp on screen for a long time and HE DID NOT BLINK
    his crazy eyes used to creep me out before. now i’m just straight up scared of the man.

  317. 317 SteveH said at 9:11 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Honestly he looks like someone who has entire meals of only caffeine pills. He’s just REALLY FUCKING ALERT!!!!

  318. 318 Dragon_Eagle said at 9:11 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Missed that. We need a gif.

  319. 319 Anders said at 9:12 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Funny how we just put 17 (should have been 21) on a good Steelers defense and yet I fell almost disappointed in the offense?

  320. 320 Mitchell said at 9:13 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    The wr’s dropped at least 3 balls early. Cooper has too much butter on his fingers. Plus McCoy only had like 6 touches?

  321. 321 Ark87 said at 9:13 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    yeah it crazy how much “scary good” is within our grasp

  322. 322 Anders said at 9:14 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    17 per half is scary good and yet it fells like we could do even more even faster

  323. 323 RobNE said at 9:14 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Lets buy SB tix

  324. 324 A_T_G said at 9:14 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    It is probably misplaced disappointment in the defense for almost letting them score that one time on a FG.

    This has been a pretty thorough beat down.

  325. 325 Anders said at 9:17 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    yea 17 points in 1 half is very dam good and the around 250 yards, maybe it is just the lack of super big play we crew accustomed to

  326. 326 Dragon_Eagle said at 9:17 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    I think of it the other way. Little work with Cooper and Maclin. Lane Johnson not starting. Working in Sproles.

    Once this offense really clicks, its going to be sooooo much fun to watch.

  327. 327 Ark87 said at 9:18 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    gotta admit, besides the shit stain on my couch that Mac caused, he’s lookin good for this offense

  328. 328 Dragon_Eagle said at 9:20 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Send him the dry cleaning bill.

  329. 329 Ark87 said at 9:22 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    There’ Geagles baby!

  330. 330 Ark87 said at 9:25 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Steelers need an O-line, this is awesome

  331. 331 Ark87 said at 9:25 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    VINNY CURRY!

  332. 332 Anders said at 9:26 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    The whole DL got good pressure on that play

  333. 333 Anders said at 9:27 PM on August 21st, 2014:

    Also nice of Vinny to sack Big Ben while getting swallowed by an OL
