Gameday

Posted: November 6th, 2016 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 548 Comments »

I’m glad Sunday is here and we can see the Eagles in action again. This has been one long, miserable week. My day job has been brutal (getting home at 9pm) and that’s killed my writing schedule. Dealing with the Dallas loss was frustrating. Doug Pederson’s PC’s didn’t help matters (the screen pass was a good call?). Then we had the Josh Huff arrest and release.

Ugh.

Thank god it is Sunday and we can move on. The Eagles take on the Giants today in a big NFC East showdown. A win would put the Eagles at 5-3 at midseason. All in all, I’d be just fine with that. The blown leads still hurt, but you can’t obsess on that. 5-3 would put the Eagles into 2nd place in the division and would in good playoff position.

The Eagles have won 4 in a row against the Giants. Some circumstances have changed for both teams, but the bottom line is that the Eagles won those games because they controlled the line of scrimmage. The Giants are better on the LOS this year, but I still give the Eagles an advantage there. Bennie Logan and Taylor Hart are out and that does hurt, but the the Giants struggle to run the ball so that takes some of the sting out of being thin at DT.

It will be crucial to see if Halapoulivaati Vaitai can hold his own in pass pro. Olivier Vernon and JPP are quick, athletic DEs. They aren’t getting sacks right now, but that can change quickly. Big V has played substantially better each week. You can now see what the coaches were thinking when they gave him the RT job. This will be a big test for him.

If Vaitai and the OL can give Carson Wentz time, he should be able to move the ball. Will anything change with the loss of Josh Huff? Bryce Treggs should take his spot as the #4 WR. That could lead to an extra downfield throw or two. We have all wanted to see that. Even if the passes are incomplete, there is value in stretching the defense to open up the underneath stuff.

The Eagles need to get after Eli, which they normally do.

Don’t count on sacks and INTs. Eli is the master of throwing the ball away at the last moment. If the Eagles are playing good D, we’ll likely see a lot of incompletions. You can bet there will be some borderline intentional grounding moments that will have me going nuts. Eli is the king of that.

I don’t care if this a shootout or defensive struggle. I don’t care if the Eagles are flawless or play ugly. This team just needs to make sure they come away with a win. They need to win a division game and get to 5-3.

    I think we will win by at least a TD.

    I think a two score game should be the average margin here.

    the intentional grounding shit with Eli drives me insane.

    “You can bet there will be some borderline intentional grounding moments that will have me going nuts. Eli is the king of that.”

    Borderline my butt; Eli is straight up cheating with groundings AND delay of games that never get called. The league constantly cheating for the Giants gets old as hell. F them.

    Than who, the 2012 Eagles?

    On my way to watch the Eagles at Shorty’s in Hell’s Kitchen of Manhattan.

    Please just come away with a win as I am not keen on hearing all the bs by the Giants fans on my way home.

    Thanks.

    the Giants had 2 weeks to prepare for the Eagles as have the last two Eagles opponents. The NFL is sticking it to Philly by scheduling this way.

    Makes this win that much sweeter.

    I live in Hawaii and I understand I am not in a football mecca… But when the televised game is dallas vs browns? WTF. If I had a red flag I’d challenge that call.

    I have not been less excited for a Giants game in a long time. Last week was crushing. We gavr the division away. I just can’t get up for this game. It’s hard not to view this as almost meaningless.

  23. 23 SteveH said at 12:46 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I’m not quite as down as you are but I do agree that beating the Giants today is a poor consolation prize for choking against the Cowboys in Dallas last week. Really really tough loss.

    Each loss worse than the one before it.

    This defense still cant defend a slant

  52. 52 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:14 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    There is almost no defense that can defend a slant to ODB when he gets 7 yards of space, free release, and able to get to full speed. The ’85 Bears would struggle with that. Course the 85 Bears wouldn’t give him that free release.

  53. 53 Will Ft. Daft Punk said at 1:16 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    The CB started to bail too early

    Was well played by JPP

  148. 148 anon said at 1:30 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    That back shoulder to DGB was sad.

  149. 149 scratcherk said at 1:31 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    zero effort.

  150. 150 Insomniac said at 1:32 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    could have been thrown better, CB had DGB on the outside already.

  151. 151 anon said at 1:33 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    yeah bad throw

  152. 152 disqus_jB7dl5fzvO said at 1:31 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    nice effort

  155. 155 disqus_jB7dl5fzvO said at 1:32 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Running into the kicker???

  156. 156 disqus_jB7dl5fzvO said at 1:32 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Or roughing

  157. 157 scratcherk said at 1:32 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    i guess it wouldnt have mattered anyway.

  158. 158 Sb2bowl said at 1:33 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Could be an automatic first down

  159. 159 scratcherk said at 1:32 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    how the fuck is there no flag.

  160. 160 Sb2bowl said at 1:33 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Agreed. That’s not “incidental”

  161. 161 SeanofDead said at 1:32 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    looks like a bullshit effort on route running there

  162. 162 anon said at 1:32 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    2 WO WRs

  163. 163 Insomniac said at 1:33 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    not sure if either Matthews or DGB would have scored tho

  164. 164 anon said at 1:33 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    could have gotten the first

  165. 165 Will Ft. Daft Punk said at 1:33 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Id blame the OL

  166. 166 shah8 said at 1:32 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    field goal only is a bit demoralizing…

  167. 167 anon said at 1:33 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    no flag on that roughing the kicker?

  168. 168 daveH said at 1:33 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Is Wentz run or rollout really part of the plan ?? F that plan it sucks

  169. 169 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:34 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    With our OL, you want him to sit in the pocket?

  170. 170 Insomniac said at 1:35 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Wentz is at his best if he can do that though.

  171. 171 scratcherk said at 1:35 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    i hate this team.

  172. 172 ChoTime said at 1:36 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Quiet around here. Attrition from last week?

  173. 173 Insomniac said at 1:36 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    hitting the booze hard after that shitty start

  175. 175 Sb2bowl said at 1:37 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Spirit of Huff has brought us low

  176. 176 Sb2bowl said at 1:36 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Lots of game left. Get a stop, get a drive and we are fine. Can’t go down 3 scores this early though

  177. 177 Insomniac said at 1:37 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    with what defense?

  178. 178 Sb2bowl said at 1:37 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    One that hasn’t had 2 extremely short fields to defend

  179. 179 Insomniac said at 1:39 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Our DL should be dominating their crappy OL.

  180. 180 Sb2bowl said at 5:15 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Should be- I’d say they are one of the biggest disappointments of the day.

    Where is Cox?

  181. 181 Sb2bowl said at 1:38 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Boom!

    Brandon Graham better get to the pro bowl this year.

  188. 188 anon said at 1:40 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    yeah hopefully he hits all of his escalator

  189. 189 Insomniac said at 1:40 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    He should but knowing how dumb pro bowl voting is, JJ Watt will be a pro bowler this year.

  190. 190 shah8 said at 1:38 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Nice defense after pass completion!

    WOOOOOD

  194. 194 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:41 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I love the way he runs. Quick cut, hit hole HARD with Smallwood.

  195. 195 Crus57 said at 1:41 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Does a stiffarm count as Ertz breaking a tackle?

  196. 196 Sb2bowl said at 1:42 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Graded on his curve, yes. That counts as 2

  197. 197 scratcherk said at 1:42 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    absolutely

  198. 198 Insomniac said at 1:42 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    yes

  199. 199 scratcherk said at 1:43 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    J Matt unacceptable dtopped TD ..

    That was tipped

  202. 202 Insomniac said at 1:44 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Still nearly hit him in the damn hands again

  203. 203 shah8 said at 1:45 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Pass was too far behind, anyways.

  204. 204 scratcherk said at 1:43 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    interesting playcall

  205. 205 disqus_jB7dl5fzvO said at 1:43 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Why would you run that on 3rd and 5

  206. 206 CrackSammich said at 1:43 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    oh god damn it.

  207. 207 John Galt said at 1:44 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Kick the FG

  208. 208 Kohlhaas said at 1:44 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    what the fuck kind of plays are these on 3rd down?

  209. 209 anon said at 1:44 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    yeah that was terrible.

  210. 210 ChoTime said at 1:45 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Shit, at least let Wentz run that one.

  211. 211 John Galt said at 1:45 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Probably was thinking two downs but it’s a mistake. Should kick here. We have momentum and could lose it with a stop

  212. 212 DarthBanner said at 1:45 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Pederson is a shit playcaller. The league has figured it out.

  213. 213 ChoTime said at 1:47 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Sometimes these weaknesses or bad tendencies get exposed early on, and they never correct them.

  214. 214 CrackSammich said at 1:44 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    go for it.

  215. 215 Insomniac said at 1:44 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I hate Matthews

  216. 216 shah8 said at 1:44 PM on November 6th, 2016:

  217. 217 ChoTime said at 1:44 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Damn, nice protection and nice PD.

  218. 218 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:45 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Doug. Go for it. We need a momentum shifter.

  219. 219 Crus57 said at 1:46 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    FG makes it one score tho?

  220. 220 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:46 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Too early to worry about that. Late 3rd Quarter+, I’d agree.

  221. 221 ChoTime said at 1:46 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    How about a fake punt! Har har

    that was the last playcall i would have chosen

  226. 226 disqus_jB7dl5fzvO said at 1:47 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Second to last would be a flare screen six yards behind the line

  227. 227 CrackSammich said at 1:47 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    ok then

  228. 228 ChoTime said at 1:48 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Hm. The Wentz run one play too late.

  237. 237 Crus57 said at 1:48 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I’m pretty sure calling for one of our slower runners to try and get the corner on 4th and 2 is waaaay overthinking it

  238. 238 shah8 said at 1:50 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Nah, it wouldn’t have had a chance if Joe Webb did it. It was just a really bad “nobody is gonna expect THIS” playcall.

  239. 239 kajomo said at 1:48 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    OMFG. Can we all realize that while Wentz is mobile he is not fast? Just stupid play calling

  240. 240 DarthBanner said at 1:50 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Doug is a moron. Not winning crap unless he gives up playcalling duties. Smells like kotite in here.

  241. 241 Chris Lindeman said at 1:48 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Terrible call

  242. 242 DarthBanner said at 1:48 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Awful play call by Doug Simpleton.

    gotta say doug was much better calling plays the first 3 games.

  244. 244 Insomniac said at 1:49 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    he had lane in those games.

  245. 245 Insomniac said at 1:48 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    OL is bad. Runs it anyway. please stop

  246. 246 John Galt said at 1:48 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Just plain dumb. Gotta kick there as I said below. Keep you momentum

  247. 247 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:49 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Lane Johnson can’t return fast enough.

  248. 248 scratcherk said at 1:49 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    didnt mind going for it but a quick throw would have been the choice

  249. 249 Chris Lindeman said at 1:50 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Or Mathews/Smallwood up the middle

  250. 250 Chris Lindeman said at 1:50 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Exploit the injury…

  251. 251 jmh said at 1:52 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Sweep the leg

  252. 252 disqus_jB7dl5fzvO said at 1:50 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    An aggressive decision combined with an ultra conservative play call. Doug is blue balling us.

  253. 253 Nick C said at 1:50 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Lost faith in Doug last game. It’s getting worse

  254. 254 DarthBanner said at 1:51 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Yup. He’s a moron.

  255. 255 scratcherk said at 1:50 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    especially in key situations

  262. 262 Insomniac said at 1:52 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    i wonder how much of it is just execution and shit OL.

  263. 263 Crus57 said at 1:52 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Well, he is a rookie HC in his first year with the team, mistakes are inevitable.

  264. 264 SeanofDead said at 1:51 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    That’s a big loss for them, shut the running game down and get backfield to play at los

    He’s like the girlfriend you can’t seem to let go of……

  309. 309 SteveH said at 1:58 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    So this Bryce Treggs kid, he’s basically Desean Jackson 2.0, loving that.

  310. 310 scratcherk said at 1:58 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    a bit premature, but yes, yes he is.

    djax finds a awy to make that a TD.

  312. 312 meteorologist said at 1:58 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Relax with the overreaction . Jeez

  313. 313 Insomniac said at 1:59 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I haven’t seen enough of him to say that. Djax is probably the best deep threat of this decade.

  314. 314 Dragon_Eagle said at 1:59 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Whoa! Slow down there, tex.

  315. 315 CrackSammich said at 1:58 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Wentz has, as skill players, two 1st rounders, and 3 2nd rounders on the field, and our two leading receivers right now were both undrafted.

  316. 316 DarthBanner said at 1:58 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Is it sad the Treggs is already arguably our second best receiver?

  317. 317 SteveH said at 1:58 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    2nd best? You mean best.

  318. 318 anon said at 1:58 PM on November 6th, 2016:

  322. 322 Crus57 said at 2:01 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    ball moved though?

  323. 323 scratcherk said at 2:01 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    maybe a lil….

  324. 324 Sb2bowl said at 2:02 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Bal moved a bit but not as it was touching the ground. Hoping they stay with call on field, but I doubt it

  325. 325 Crus57 said at 2:03 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    In NY? Not holding my breath.

  326. 326 Crus57 said at 2:01 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    That’s close. Likely overturned.

    No INT

    enough to overturn? ball didnt move much..

  331. 331 Insomniac said at 2:03 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    sssh maybe they’;ll give it to us to amend for missing roughing the kicker.

  332. 332 Chris Lindeman said at 2:02 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    No pick

  333. 333 scratcherk said at 2:02 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    almost the trifecta, ODB dropped the pass, got whacked and INT.

  334. 334 Chris Lindeman said at 2:02 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Can’t hit that clown hard enough

  335. 335 Dragon_Eagle said at 2:03 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Ball moved. Moved enough. Need to maintain control through hitting the ground.

    Unless Doug upped his check to the zebras.

  336. 336 Sb2bowl said at 2:03 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Hopefully Jeffy is paying that, Doug will run out of cash quickly

  337. 337 Iskar36 said at 2:03 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    How you know you have CB hands…. your fists are closed as you try to catch the ball.

  339. 339 Dragon_Eagle said at 2:04 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Give Eli credit there. Stepped away from pressure. Made a great throw.

    Weak call .. its a clean hit

  353. 353 CrackSammich said at 2:07 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    good penalty to take there, i guess. that was a TD

  354. 354 scratcherk said at 2:08 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    false start please

  355. 355 Sb2bowl said at 2:08 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Drop an Int, shitty penalty and bogus call. Don’t locate a pass that can be picked and now this.

    ODB makes lots of CBs look bad. That’s what he does, so don’t lay it all on McKelvin.

  365. 365 Nick C said at 2:10 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    McKelvin is really bad

  366. 366 Insomniac said at 2:10 PM on November 6th, 2016:

  367. 367 Dave said at 2:11 PM on November 6th, 2016:

  368. 368 Kohlhaas said at 2:11 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Be nice if both the offense and defense played well at the same time instead of taking turns.

  369. 369 scratcherk said at 2:11 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    why are there so many loud, annoying WRs in this division? Dez, ODB, Desean…

  370. 370 Dave said at 2:11 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Yeah, we need one too

  371. 371 daveH said at 2:11 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Crappy OL
    Unreliable WRs
    More game film on rookie QB and HC
    No Lane

    ya makes a lot of sense that Wentz is struggling now.

    Why do we have 3rd down plays where Ertz goes short of the sticks? He’s never proven the ability to get YAC. Use Celek there.

  388. 388 Crus57 said at 2:17 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I’ve had it on mute since 5 mins into first quarter. Troy is tolerable, Buck is not.

  389. 389 Sb2bowl said at 2:18 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Agreed. I’m so happy when Joe Suck calls the baseball games. He’s intolerable

  390. 390 Dragon_Eagle said at 2:18 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I hated the Moose/Goose team. Goose was an absolutely awful commentator.

    I don’t mind Aikman so much, but Buck just ticks you off.

  391. 391 Sb2bowl said at 5:14 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Goose was just a personality. He sucked though and if the nfl didn’t want a fat slob of a former player on the field during the game, Goose would have been out of the public view a long time ago

  392. 392 CrackSammich said at 2:18 PM on November 6th, 2016:

  403. 403 Patrick said at 2:22 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    There isn’t a reciever on the team who can get open regularly. When they do, they can’t fucking catch.

  404. 404 Insomniac said at 2:23 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    That throw was terrible

  405. 405 Patrick said at 2:25 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Every throw is terrible, but what do you want? Theres no one open, at all, and we can’t run the ball. Should Wentz just take the snap and wait for the sack or throw it away?

  406. 406 Insomniac said at 2:27 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Back shoulder throws that aren’t high enough or anywere near the WR aren’t terrible?

  412. 412 Insomniac said at 2:22 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    There is hope

  413. 413 Sb2bowl said at 2:22 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    How is DGB not more aggressive? He towers over cb’s but he’s got less fight in him than Ags

  414. 414 anon said at 2:22 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    also can we use dgb other than the predictable poorly thrown back shoulder throw?

  415. 415 Kohlhaas said at 2:24 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    that guy shows so little effort that I wouldn’t even bother going to him again unless he’s wide open.

  416. 416 Insomniac said at 2:24 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    That’s not effort for one. What’s DGB supposed to do? Step out of bounds?

  417. 417 scratcherk said at 2:23 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    take the points ffs

  430. 430 Iskar36 said at 2:24 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    And this is why going for it both times was wrong. We would be 16 21 right now with both fg

  431. 431 ChoTime said at 2:25 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I think both calls were still right. The %s were there.

  432. 432 Iskar36 said at 2:26 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Maybe on he second one. THE first one was by no means a high percentage play

  433. 433 ChoTime said at 2:27 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    4th and 2 in FG range, going for it has higher expected value (I think).

  434. 434 ChoTime said at 2:28 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    If the Giants go for it on 4th and 1 at the 15, now that is stupid.

  435. 435 DarthBanner said at 2:26 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    But both play calls were terrible. Pederson just isn’t good.

  436. 436 Sb2bowl said at 2:26 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    And if they converted? You would be singing his praises

  437. 437 Iskar36 said at 2:31 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Nope. I didn’t like going for it before the play. Particularly on the first one.

    If I am going to give credit though, I do like the fact that given you go for it the first time, you do the same thing the second time. It at least suggests the moves are not emotion based, but I honk the first one was a bad decision. The second one, I can debate either way.

  438. 438 Sb2bowl said at 5:13 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Didn’t care for the call on the first one, but that could have been a defense/play the Eagles hadn’t seen the Giants employ so far during the season. Coaches LOVE having an extra week to scheme up new wrinkles to break tendencies. I think that’s what happened with the Wentz keepers today.

    The second play was just good defense. Most of the time Sproles can get the first down. Didn’t happen today.

  439. 439 ChoTime said at 2:24 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Dumbass screen play call! oh, that one nearly worked…

  442. 442 Sb2bowl said at 2:25 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    They tried. Can’t say he didn’t coach aggressively

  443. 443 DarthBanner said at 2:25 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Another awful job by Pederson.

  444. 444 Insomniac said at 2:25 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I like the fact that you have big balls Doug but this isn’t the damn Super Bowl.

  445. 445 Dragon_Eagle said at 2:27 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Precisely the reason you go for it. In the Superbowl, take the points.

  446. 446 John Galt said at 2:26 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I said it early in the season that the early 4th down success would bite us by leading to overconfidence by Doug

  447. 447 meteorologist said at 2:27 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    It’s not overconfidence it’s the right decision

  448. 448 anon said at 2:27 PM on November 6th, 2016:

  449. 449 John Galt said at 2:28 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    You one of those Math guys? I’m fine with it outside of FG range too but points keep momentum

  450. 450 DarthBanner said at 2:28 PM on November 6th, 2016:

  460. 460 Dragon_Eagle said at 2:30 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Forgot what to do in that situation. Its been years seemingly.

  461. 461 ChoTime said at 2:30 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    SECURE the ball, then turn upfield (with these guys, they need to focus on that).

  462. 462 Dragon_Eagle said at 2:29 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Was that a WR? Wasn’t sure we still had them on the team.

  463. 463 SeanofDead said at 2:29 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    big boy catch JMatt

  464. 464 CrackSammich said at 2:29 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    body catch.

  465. 465 ChoTime said at 2:30 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Hell yeah, JM!

  466. 466 scratcherk said at 2:31 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    take your time fellas.

  467. 467 CrackSammich said at 2:32 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    another body catch.

  468. 468 Insomniac said at 2:32 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    we’ll take it

  469. 469 scratcherk said at 2:32 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    i’ll take any catch, any way

  470. 470 scratcherk said at 2:33 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    the worst thing that could happen here is we gain 9 yards for 4th and 1

  471. 471 Spooonius said at 2:33 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    ha!

  472. 472 CrackSammich said at 2:33 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    more awful clock management

  473. 473 ChoTime said at 2:33 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Jeez, JM has bad hands…even when he catches it.

  474. 474 scratcherk said at 2:33 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    use up some damn clock doug

  475. 475 Insomniac said at 2:34 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Wentz has to work on his deep ball.

  476. 476 DamonL86 said at 2:34 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    can Beckham actually fight through to try and make a catch

  477. 477 ConcussedFB said at 2:35 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    No, he can’t win that. Play should be cancelled

  478. 478 Insomniac said at 2:35 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    You guys are watching the wrong game. All of these balls thrown to DGB have been piss poor.

  479. 479 anon said at 2:34 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    oh wow – same fade play again. terrible throw again

  480. 480 daveH said at 2:38 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    TE was close to being open

  481. 481 DamonL86 said at 2:34 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    omg

  482. 482 CrackSammich said at 2:34 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    yeah, dint run the fucking ball at all there.

  483. 483 Dragon_Eagle said at 2:34 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    yuck

  484. 484 Sb2bowl said at 2:34 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    3&10 for our O? Horrible. 3&10 for our opposition? First down

  485. 485 SeanofDead said at 2:34 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Unreal

  486. 486 scratcherk said at 2:34 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    should have gone for it.

  487. 487 Aaron said at 2:34 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    how bad is it, how are the wrs

  488. 488 anon said at 2:36 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    better off getting on w/ your day.

  489. 489 John Galt said at 2:34 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    He is throwing it out front but with back shoulder trajectory. It’s awful looking

  490. 490 Kohlhaas said at 2:34 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    unreal

  491. 491 Sb2bowl said at 2:35 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Nice

  492. 492 scratcherk said at 2:35 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    “and thats why”

  493. 493 daveH said at 2:35 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Lousy game plan.. lousy game plan… lousy execution

  494. 494 Aaron said at 2:35 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    how are the wr’s doing

  495. 495 Crus57 said at 2:36 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Treggs caught a 58yd pass, otherwise much the same as ever. Some catches, some drops.

  496. 496 daveH said at 2:37 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Ours suck… they have drops as well..

  497. 497 Dragon_Eagle said at 2:37 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    JMatt came to play and Treggs had a nice catch.

    Ags should be cut during halftime

  498. 498 Aaron said at 2:37 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    wow, wished I wouldnt have asked

  499. 499 Sb2bowl said at 2:35 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Nice tackle Caleb! And a force fumble

  500. 500 scratcherk said at 2:36 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    save us d.

  501. 501 CrackSammich said at 2:36 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    good thing we didnt run the ball at all to run down the clock.

  502. 502 ChoTime said at 2:36 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    How did he get through like that?

  503. 503 John Galt said at 2:36 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Not often the much better team is down double digits at half

  504. 504 ChoTime said at 2:37 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Yeah…

  505. 505 kajomo said at 2:36 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I see a lot of people complaining about Wentz as deep ball. I see DGB make no effort to get on top of the CB. JMatt and Treggs have gotten open and Wentz has been money

  506. 506 Sb2bowl said at 2:37 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Yes, DGB isn’t playing up to his strength

  507. 507 John Galt said at 2:37 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    If he is gonna throw it out front he needs to put air under it

  508. 508 Insomniac said at 2:39 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I railed Wentz for this when watching his NDSU film. His touch is all over the place.

  509. 509 Insomniac said at 2:38 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I can’t tell if you’re trolling or not . If DGB can jump over a guy that has had great coverage and catch the ball 2 yards in front of him then be my guest.

  510. 510 ChoTime said at 2:38 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    It’s kind of hard to tell whose at fault for me.

  511. 511 anon said at 2:38 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    different kinds of passes. plus everyone in the stadium knows they’re going to try the same fade play in the redzone. more of a wasted dow than anything else the way that ball is thrown.

  512. 512 Tumtum said at 2:39 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    It takes two to tango and two to complete a pass. Both parties look prettt weak.

  513. 513 Sb2bowl said at 2:40 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    When DGB gets jammed, it really affects his stride. He’s a long strider, he needs time to build up speed

  514. 514 Tumtum said at 2:37 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    So now i see why we dont pass down field much.

  515. 515 anon said at 2:39 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    terrible throw by eli, but it could be a long day w/ beckam out there.

  516. 516 ChoTime said at 2:40 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    dodged a BULLET

  517. 517 Checkdown Charlie said at 2:40 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Take a knee

  518. 518 Kohlhaas said at 2:40 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Wentz has gotten dumber as the season has progressed apparently.

  519. 519 scratcherk said at 2:41 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    well, could be worse i guess.

  520. 520 Checkdown Charlie said at 2:41 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Make them walk home

  521. 521 Aaron said at 2:41 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    is there any pass rush from the eagles D

  522. 522 scratcherk said at 2:41 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    yes.

  523. 523 truehaynes said at 2:41 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Presort looks too good

  524. 524 Kohlhaas said at 2:42 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    He should. He has top 5 something at every level on offense. Line, RB and WR.

  525. 525 SeanofDead said at 2:41 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Interesting spot to bring pressure by Spags, worked tho

  526. 526 shah8 said at 2:42 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    welp. Doesn’t look like Vikes are playing well, either.

  527. 527 scratcherk said at 2:42 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    one silver lining… maybe we’ll have a decent first round pick

  528. 528 Checkdown Charlie said at 2:42 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Vikes were frauds

  529. 529 Iskar36 said at 2:42 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Definitely Wentz’s worst half of football. Was ugly to watch.

  530. 530 ChoTime said at 2:46 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Out of his comfort zone.

  531. 531 Iskar36 said at 2:48 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    On the plus side, a few mistakes seem like dumb rookie mistakes which are ok…. doesn’t help that he looked like he had the mental part of the game down early in the season… but ok. The bad part is missing some easy throws.

  532. 532 ChoTime said at 2:56 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    The bad part might be that he really is a natural short-baller, and these long balls is just how it’s going to be. Hope not.

  533. 533 ChoTime said at 2:42 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Another game we could be winning but aren’t.

    Well, team is still better than I thought they would be this year.

  534. 534 anon said at 2:43 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    are they? what exactly were you expecting?

  535. 535 Insomniac said at 2:43 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Somewhat closer game.

  536. 536 ChoTime said at 2:43 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    I expected 8-8 or a little less.

  537. 537 Kohlhaas said at 2:44 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    They’re looking like a 7-9 team at this point.

  538. 538 ChoTime said at 2:46 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    True, but the schedule and the NFC East is much harder than I thought it would be, so I take that into account.

  539. 539 anon said at 2:47 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    that’s about what is was expecting, be happy if we get that.

  540. 540 daveH said at 2:55 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Lucky you.. im worried about the playcalljng also. . Wentz running scares no one in gisnts stadium

  541. 541 SeanofDead said at 2:42 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Gonna need some serious Mannigface in the second half to win one

  542. 542 Dragon_Eagle said at 2:45 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Counting on it.

  543. 543 John Galt said at 2:44 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Seems like Kelce has been a bigger problem than HPV. Maybe the kid is improving

  544. 544 Insomniac said at 2:45 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Perhaps Kelce is also regressing too..

  545. 545 Howie Littlefinger said at 2:48 PM on November 6th, 2016:

    Could so easily be 21-19….. ugh
