Halftime – PHI 13, PIT 3

Posted: September 25th, 2016 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 445 Comments »

Great opening half. Anyone who thought this was going to show the Eagles were overmatched is very, very wrong. The Steelers could still come back and win the game, but the Eagles have shown this team needs to be taken seriously.

The Eagles offense piled up 215 yards and scored 13 points. Carson Wentz was almost flawless and has a rating of 105.9. The run game has been too quiet, but the Eagles did have 3 runs of 10 or more yards so there is something to build on. I’d like to see Wendell Smallwood get more touches in the 2nd half.

The skill players have been terrific today, catching the ball and making plays. This DGB guy is pretty good and Old Man Celek isn’t too shabby either.

Pittsburgh moved the ball on the Eagles, but was only able to generate one FG. The big problem has been big plays. Take those away and the Steelers aren’t moving the ball. And they only have 15 yards rushing.

The Eagles have been great on STs and that has made a difference. Caleb Sturgis is 2 for 2. Bennie Logan blocked a FG on the Steelers opening drive. The kick coverage units have limited field position for PIT.

You can bet Mike Tomlin will get his guys fired up at halftime. The 2nd half is not going to be easy.

The Eagles get the ball to open the half. They need to go get more points and keep the Steelers on their heels.

    Dude is a real beast.

  9. 9 ChoTime said at 5:55 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    So, I’m looking at the stats. The difference here seems to be two things: 1. the Eagles run game is doing better, 2. the Steelers came up empty in the red zone.

    Ben and the kid are both going for 7.3 ypa.
    The run game is 1.9 vs 4.0 ypc.

    All in all, it looks very close on paper.

  10. 10 Dragon_Eagle said at 5:56 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Our drives were methodical down the field marches. Theirs were chunk plays. Which do you trust?

  11. 11 Jarock said at 5:56 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Chunk plays are prettier, but not as sustainable.

  12. 12 ChoTime said at 5:56 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    It really depends, but I do prefer the methodical route.

  13. 13 Jarock said at 6:00 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Hey . . . . we got a chunk play 🙂

    Or semi regularly

    And then there’s the conversion to a big boy offense in due time.

  27. 27 John Galt said at 6:01 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    They are running a full offense. I know it’s your talking point but what are they not asking him to do?

  28. 28 shah8 said at 6:01 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    What the plays are like right now, is not a big boy offense.

  29. 29 shah8 said at 6:02 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    which is perfectly normal, man. Dude’s a rookie.

  30. 30 John Galt said at 6:03 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Why? He makes changes at the LOS, they have full field reads, he throws deep and medium, what isn’t he doing?

  51. 51 FairOaks said at 6:05 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Kurt Warner. I’m sure there have been others. But I’m happy with this.

    he came from NFL Europe though

  53. 53 Jarock said at 6:05 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Warner was ancient and played in NFL Europe before he made his debut w/the Rams, but yeah, he lit it up too.

  54. 54 FairOaks said at 6:09 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    True. Dan Marino for sure. RGIII? 😛 He’s just doing lots of veteran stuff very well, which is great to see. He is 24 years old already, so an older rookie. Two years older than Goff.

  55. 55 ChoTime said at 6:05 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    The playcalling also looks to be extremely sharp.

    Pressure’s starting to get in Ben’s head a bit. That should have been easy.

  68. 68 ChoTime said at 6:08 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Bradford would have gone down on that play.

  101. 101 Corry said at 6:15 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Yeah, JEnkins broke up the pass and managed to bobble the ball around and drop an INT twice.

  102. 102 A_T_G said at 6:17 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Twice?! So 4 dropped INTS in three consecutive plays?

    I’ve had to change my pants many times

  144. 144 Dragon_Eagle said at 6:23 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    This is going to be the best bye week ever. 2 weeks to revel in this.

  145. 145 Jarock said at 6:23 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    With a rookie QB . . . . I need to wake up.

  146. 146 ACViking said at 6:24 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    So I am wondering now, how much was Chip Kelly holding back the Eagles?

  147. 147 SteveH said at 6:24 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Like, so much.

  148. 148 anon said at 6:24 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    We did win 10 games the first two seasons.

    gotta thing Jim Schwartz had a big effect also.

  149. 149 Dragon_Eagle said at 6:25 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Not like this we didn’t.

  150. 150 BobSmith77 said at 6:26 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Billy Davis and not having a QB like Wentz and his physical skills.

  151. 151 ChoTime said at 6:26 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    This is the honeymoon phase. We’ll see what happens when the rest of the league makes their adjustment.

    Year 1, not really.

    Year 3, a whole shedload.

  154. 154 ChoTime said at 6:25 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Can you imagine Mills covering Brown in the Billy Davis defense?

  161. 161 Tumtum said at 6:27 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Mills just needs to play the ball better.

  162. 162 BobSmith77 said at 6:27 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Add Carroll to that list too.

  163. 163 ChoTime said at 6:28 PM on September 25th, 2016:

  171. 171 ChoTime said at 6:38 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Nice… here in AZ we keep ours outside. I have Marrs orange and some normal lemons.

  172. 172 shah8 said at 6:39 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    What with citrus greening, take very good care about any sap sucking insects around! Also, make sure if you want any more citrus, you get them soon before it’s very difficult to move them accross state borders.

    I’m sorry, but were any of the other RBs going to be producing like Barner is right now. Sometimes the FO is just right about projecting players long term.

    No one said that.

  252. 252 Dave said at 6:39 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Algholar has done all right if he were a 5th round pick, not 1st

  253. 253 shah8 said at 6:38 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Anyways, Wentz played well, and did everything anyone could ask of him. Need to see him in tough games against tougher teams, though. A lot of what happened is Pitt’s offense being unusually bad, and the defense not really in tune with Peterson’s playcalling.

  254. 254 Jarock said at 6:40 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    How much of that is the team though? Steelers are a SB contender despite this. Eagles have made 3 teams look bad this year. Some of it is the other team not having a great day, but a lot of it is the Eagles making them not have a great day.

  255. 255 shah8 said at 6:41 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    That’s a bit more true of the EAgle’s defense than of the offense. D played very well.

  256. 256 Jarock said at 6:42 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Offense outside of penalties has been good too. Too many drops, but if the !@#$ receivers could catch, Wentz’ already impressive numbers become ridiculous.

  257. 257 shah8 said at 6:46 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    sure! Make sure to give the OL credit here. They played a huge role in pass protection and a forward role in a number of misdirection pass plays.

  258. 258 Tumtum said at 6:41 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    If they are, we have to be….right?

  259. 259 Jarock said at 6:42 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Before today, I’d have said no. After this? What can you say but yes.

  260. 260 GENETiC-FREAK said at 6:40 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Cheer up man lol

  261. 261 Rambo said at 6:41 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    LMAO! So we need to allow a defense to be in tune with Pederson’s playcalling before we get credit?

  262. 262 shah8 said at 6:43 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Yeah, I think we do. Peterson is a LOT like Reid. So it’s going to be a matter of is he as good in the Reid style of playcalling.

    Because, if you remember, Reid does have a lot of games where he can’t get out of his own way with being too fancy at the wrong spots.

  263. 263 shah8 said at 6:44 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    And all that misdirection is a lot like being a knuckleballer pitcher. Too many bad balls makes for some really easy high slugging percentages.

  264. 264 shah8 said at 6:49 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Marty Mornigwheg is another good cautionary tale. When you let Marty be Marty (with a good OL), he’s really good. But Marty is functionally incapable of calling a good game with bad OLs or a bad QB situation, it seems.

  265. 265 Rambo said at 6:58 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    I mean i hear ya, but they’re facing a rookie qb, rookie coach, and they’re the Stillers! This game isn’t even close, and they have way more superstar players than we do. GO BIRDS!!!

  274. 274 Insomniac said at 6:42 PM on September 25th, 2016:

  282. 282 ChoTime said at 6:43 PM on September 25th, 2016:

  285. 285 Corry said at 6:43 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    I’ve heard that brought up a couple times. Big reason why they aren’t holding back much in terms of the offense.

    Only thing they’re holding back is the designed runs because he hasn’t shown the willingness to protect himself. (though he did a decent job this game).

  286. 286 RC5000 said at 6:44 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Somebody wrote that before on Philly.com. Big article by McLane.

  287. 287 BobSmith77 said at 6:45 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Bit of hyperbole. I have only ever met a few people who ever really had that include one guy I went to undergrad with who went to Bronx Science.

    Triple majored (neurobiology, philosophy, physics) and finished in 4 years.

  288. 288 Jarock said at 6:46 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    That would explain the never got a B.

  289. 289 BobSmith77 said at 6:48 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    He didn’t. I am pretty bright dude and been around a lot of bright people in various capacities.

    One of the few people I ever met I knew I had no chance of competing with intellectually. Very affable though and a big party guy to boot. Now a neurosurgeon who lives in NYC and researcher.

  290. 290 Jarock said at 6:49 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Was talking about Wentz, but yeah your friend too.

  291. 291 BobSmith77 said at 6:51 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    You can get straights As in undergrad and still not be that overwhelmingly bright especially if an easier major/college & you work very hard.

    His wonderlic was 29 which was decent but not amazing for a QB.

  292. 292 Dave said at 6:51 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    I would tend to agree. Othereise, that would make Carson’s straight A’s less impressive. If I could remember everything I read, college would have been pretty simple, especially if I was a physical education major.

  293. 293 RobNE said at 6:43 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Do they take Wentz out?

  294. 294 Jarock said at 6:45 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Said it before, I’ll say it again . . . not yet. 5 minutes to go, still leading by multiple scores? Yeah, it’s time.

  295. 295 BobSmith77 said at 6:43 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Is Mathews hurt?

  296. 296 John Galt said at 6:43 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    He must be

  297. 297 meteorologist said at 6:45 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Knew I should have traded him this week!

  298. 298 Insomniac said at 6:44 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    It’s Chase Daniel time!!

  299. 299 Corry said at 6:44 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Screw that! I want a 40 burger!

  300. 300 Insomniac said at 6:45 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    I’m sure we can manage 2 FGs with Chase just handing the ball off right now.

  301. 301 Corry said at 6:47 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Probably, but I live in Stiller’s country and I really want them crushed.

  304. 304 Crus57 said at 6:45 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    I love how on passes inside that our WRs immediately turn and try to get upfield

  305. 305 Tumtum said at 6:45 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Oh yeah. They put on the Colts game. Time to drive. Good game gentz

    Who will have more, him or Wentz?

  311. 311 Insomniac said at 6:48 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    dammmmmmmn

  312. 312 FairOaks said at 7:15 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Fitzpatrick has more just in today’s game 😉

  313. 313 ACViking said at 6:48 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Don’t know which RB the Eagles wanted in Rd 5 ahead of Smallwood . . .

  319. 319 Jarock said at 6:51 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    I haven’t looked, but assume we’re winning T.O.P. too 🙂 Meaningless stat suddenly has meaning.

  320. 320 FairOaks said at 6:59 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    I believe we are winning the number of plays battle too, which was the original goal 😉

  321. 321 ChoTime said at 7:11 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    YPA, YPC, and score are way more important.

  322. 322 A_T_G said at 6:51 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    That Camry commercial with Tyrod Taylor is terrible, but showing the guy put the car safely into park before catching the ball is particularly obnoxious.

  323. 323 Baloophi said at 7:12 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    The NFL doesn’t want to be associated with senseless injuries.

  324. 324 BobSmith77 said at 6:53 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Twitter and texts have gone nuts for me.

  325. 325 Corry said at 6:54 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Alright guys, let’s not get sloppy here.

  326. 326 Dragon_Eagle said at 6:54 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Cut the sloppy crap. Put this game away with a stop here.

  327. 327 Corry said at 6:55 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Brandon Graham has been the best player on the defense so far this year.

  328. 328 meteorologist said at 6:59 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    What a monster

  329. 329 Jarock said at 6:55 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    BG to the rescue!!!!

  330. 330 BobSmith77 said at 6:55 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Graham is doing a nice job this year of turning pressures into hits/sacks so far.

  331. 331 Jarock said at 6:56 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Making the Steelers look worse than either Chicago or Cleveland. Unfreakingbelievable.

  332. 332 anon said at 6:57 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Schwartz is the man

  333. 333 Crus57 said at 6:57 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Schwartz should get a bonus for every game the other team doesn’t score a TD

  334. 334 Dragon_Eagle said at 6:57 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Maybe he does.

  335. 335 Iskar36 said at 7:00 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    It’s INCREDIBLY early, but if this keeps up or our defense continues to play even close to this level, is there any way Schwartz’s previous HC experience keeps teams away? Will really suck if Schwartz is one and done.

  336. 336 Jarock said at 7:01 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    He was close to this good in Buffalo too. Couldn’t even get a job after that.

  337. 337 Corry said at 6:58 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Coaches don’t have a salary cap, so if I”m Jeff Lurie, I’m paying Jim Schwartz like a head coach.

  338. 338 Jarock said at 6:59 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Can’t pay him more than Pederson . . . . but I’d pay them both the same. Pederson deserves a lot of credit for how good this team has been first three weeks too.

  339. 339 Ark87 said at 7:01 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    The team is very well run, He’s like Reid, except really good on gameday

  340. 340 Jarock said at 7:00 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    First time we’ve had a head coach and defensive coordinator who are true partners since Andy Reid/Jim Johnson.

  341. 341 Dragon_Eagle said at 6:59 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Time to hammer this game home. Hand the ball off the Ryan Matthews and pound their D-Line into submission.

  342. 342 Jbirdss said at 6:59 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    I think he is injured or something

  343. 343 A_T_G said at 7:00 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Yep. Give it to Beau instead.

  344. 344 anon said at 6:59 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Nah i think Matthews and Burton need some work.

  345. 345 A_T_G said at 7:01 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    There you go.

  346. 346 ACViking said at 6:59 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Bye weeks usually are a good thing.

    But I can’t imagine the coaches or any of the players are looking forward to having next week off.

    This team is red-hot right now. ‘shame they’re off.

  347. 347 FairOaks said at 7:00 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    They probably could use the practice on the OL since it won’t look the same by next game in all likelihood

  348. 348 Iskar36 said at 7:02 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Going into this season, the early bye week looked awful because we figured we would have a rough season and having the bye later in the season would help regroup the team… now, it is just disrupting a team playing at an incredibly high level.

  349. 349 Jarock said at 7:04 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    We’re losing Lane though. Gives them time to reshuffle the OL and hopefully minimize that impact. Also gives Ertz and McKelvin who’s still our best CB time to get healthy. I’d have been much more confident this week they had been healthy.

  350. 350 BobSmith77 said at 7:21 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Hate to see it so early in the year because of injuries. Always prefer to see it in Weeks 8-10.

    Still should get back Ertz and McKelvin back.

  351. 351 Corry said at 7:02 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Merrill Reese gettin’ some love. Just awesome.

  352. 352 Jarock said at 7:02 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    !@#$ outta bounds. I have to have something to complain about 🙂

  353. 353 Jbirdss said at 7:03 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    smallwood > zeke so far lol

  354. 354 John Galt said at 7:04 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    But, but, but that Cowboys line is the greatest ever. Smallwood can’t do better it’s just not possible

  355. 355 Jarock said at 7:05 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Reaaaaaly small sample size. But, it does illustrate that RB’s don’t need to be grabbed with top 10 picks.

  356. 356 A_T_G said at 7:06 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    But that is because Zeke has to deal with a superstar rookie QB stealing his reps.

  357. 357 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:03 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Lots of sloppy penalties last couple of series. Knock it off.

  358. 358 A_T_G said at 7:05 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Get this on ice and get out of here healthy.

  359. 359 SeanofDead said at 7:05 PM on September 25th, 2016:

  360. 360 Jarock said at 7:06 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Steelers should pull him. No need to risk getting him hurt.

  361. 361 John Galt said at 7:06 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    What you do on your own time is your own business but no need to bring it here

  362. 362 John Galt said at 7:06 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Chase Daniel time next possession

  363. 363 Kohlhaas said at 7:06 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Simply amazed with this team so far. I did not expect a win today but they came out and dominated. Wentz is doing things I never expected to see from a rookie.

  364. 364 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:07 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    I like having good safeties. Makes a world of difference.

  365. 365 Jarock said at 7:08 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Very few teams in the entire league with two good safeties. Almost all of them are dominant defenses.

  366. 366 FairOaks said at 7:07 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    I think our WRs are giving the DBs some catching lessons… looking hard for something to work on from this game…

  367. 367 Crus57 said at 7:08 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    maybe don’t use OUR WRs for that one..

  368. 368 John Galt said at 7:07 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Brown is damn good. He still has like 125 yds and 12 catches

  369. 369 Nick C said at 7:07 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Get Chase is there next drive…

  370. 370 Jarock said at 7:09 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Wheaton dropped 3 easy ones and makes the ridiculous behind him catch . . . .

  371. 371 truehaynes said at 7:10 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    I feel bad for Jenkins. Dude could have had like 5 picks already this year if he could catch

  372. 372 BobSmith77 said at 7:18 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Always had stone hands though.

  373. 373 John Galt said at 7:10 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    He caught that wow

  374. 374 John Galt said at 7:11 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    That’s the one we hold onto

    Go figure.

  376. 376 truehaynes said at 7:11 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Lol. This defense could have had so many picks already this year.

  377. 377 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:11 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Dominating win. Absolutely dominating.

    Great vet move to slide by the rookie.

  394. 394 The original AG said at 7:16 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Speaking of which the rookies looked good today.
    Wentz
    Mills
    Smallwood

    That’s a nice early return for this game.

  395. 395 Jarock said at 7:16 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Mills battled. Won’t say he looked good. He wasn’t completely burnt toast though which against Brown is saying something.

  396. 396 Jarock said at 7:15 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Oh, that’s beautiful. Rookie gets the 1st down and has the sense to get down in bounds . . . . . That people is simply great coaching.

  397. 397 ACViking said at 7:16 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Can we see more of Smallwood after the bye?

    This kid looks fantastic

  398. 398 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:16 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    OK Everyone. Repeat after me.

    Go Bears!!

  399. 399 ACViking said at 7:18 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    The Eagles, all of sudden, look loaded — for the next few years — with very young offensive talent at the skill positions.

    OT but Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown 6 picks and the jets have 8 turnovers today. We have none in 3 games

  406. 406 Jarock said at 7:19 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    And the Eagles are actually successfully running the ball late here. I really didn’t expect that. How much of that is the Steelers being tired.

  407. 407 scratcherk said at 7:19 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    pissed that i didnt realize sunday ticket unblocked the eagles game when they switched away in the broadcast. missed the fourth quarter…

  408. 408 Kohlhaas said at 7:22 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    did they? I tried it right after I realized they were sticking with the SD game and it still didn’t work. Ended up watching it on VIPBOX. which sucked.

  409. 409 SteveH said at 7:20 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    lol why are they sending ben out there now??

    NFC East W L

    New York Giants 2 1
    Dallas 1 1
    Washington 1 2

    And note that of the 4 wins our rivals have, only one came from outside the division (Giants over Saints).

    What did Florio say?

  421. 421 Baloophi said at 7:22 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Never ask that question!

  422. 422 BobSmith77 said at 7:22 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Just Wow. Came out and just took it too them after the blocked FG attempt and physically whipped them on both sides of the ball.

    Wentz didn’t make a single bad decision either today.

  423. 423 ACViking said at 7:23 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Defense has allowed only 3 points in six 2nd-half quarters.

  424. 424 Baloophi said at 7:24 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    As I opined on another site: Schwartzjustments.

  425. 425 Bert's Bells said at 7:25 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    I think the line is also relentless and they just wear down the blockers as the game goes on.

  426. 426 Baloophi said at 7:26 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Also, head games.

  427. 427 A_T_G said at 7:25 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Wait, what is this “another site” nonsense?

  428. 428 Baloophi said at 7:26 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    A construction site. Gotta pay the bills.

  429. 429 A_T_G said at 7:27 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    It better be.

  430. 430 A_T_G said at 7:25 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    And a good portion of that was defending a lead, playing prevent.

  431. 431 SteveH said at 7:23 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Welp, the Bucs gave up 37 to the Rams. What the everloving fuck.

  432. 432 MaybePederson said at 7:24 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    they were stiffeled by the two-gap

  433. 433 BobSmith77 said at 7:24 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Scary thing is Wentz was 23-31 and that included by my count at least 3 drops and that ball to DGB that he could have caught.

  434. 434 BobSmith77 said at 7:25 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Merrill – ‘The Eagles BURIED the Steelers today.’ Yup.

  435. 435 RC5000 said at 7:25 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Ended up 30 rushes, 31 pass attempts.

  436. 436 SteveH said at 7:26 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    So Wendell Smallwood looks good as hell. I’m loving our returns on this draft, considering what we were missing.

  437. 437 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:27 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Wentz 13/21 301 yards 2 TDs 0 INTs

  438. 438 SteveH said at 7:27 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Blaine Gabbert 14/25 for 119 yards and a pick. You might want to rethink that QB choice Chip. Enjoy losing again.

  439. 439 RC5000 said at 7:27 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Carson Wentz
    comp/atts yds yds /att td int sacked! rtg
    23/31 301 9.7 2 0 0-0 125.9

    So Wentz hit 3 times, 2 by Harrison, 1 by Chickillo per ESPN.COM

  440. 440 SteveH said at 7:28 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Exposed.

  441. 441 ACViking said at 7:29 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Remarkable how well the Eagles’ offense is protecting the football.

    Don’t care that games 1 and 2 were against Cleveland and Chicago.

    Tipped passes, bobbles, rips . . . they happen. (Ask Vick.)

    Without turnovers, you’re forcing opposing offenses to put together 8, 9, 10 play drives to score.

    That’s damn hard.

  442. 442 Bert's Bells said at 7:30 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Especially considering the margarine hands of the Eagles receivers.

  443. 443 A_T_G said at 7:31 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Coming into today (and I think still) our defense has not given up any points without first giving up a play of 40+ on the drive.

    So, they can’t grind through us, but we need to stop the X plays.

  444. 444 Crus57 said at 7:29 PM on September 25th, 2016:

    Our D held the league’s leading rusher to 8 for 21 and a long of 13.
