  • kajomo

    Man they look so sloppy thus far in the preseason

    • SteveH

      Defense looks pretty good, but outside of that first drive last game, our O looks like hot poo.

  • D3FB

    Anyone got one working?

  • daveH

    Every game comment appreciated …

  • SteveH

    Well, this is underwhelming.

  • Crus57

    Offense went no huddle and things started to work, then some penalties slowed things down and finally Blount fumbles when the second defender hits him after a 5yd catch on a checkdown pass. Wentz looked pretty good, Blount had some nice moves, Alshon caught a couple of quick passes. Our OL looks a bit confused and overwhelmed.

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Daaarby!!!

  • Crus57

    Darby looks like the real deal after a mistake on his first play vs Shady, nearly had a pick six that he dropped, now took the route away from the WR and got an INT

  • BlindChow

    Oh my god, we have a real cornerback

  • CrackSammich

    Was that Matthews he just intercepted that on?

    • SteveH

      Boldin. Matthews not playing.

      • CrackSammich

        Either way, that was a piss poor effort job by the WR to stop the INT.

        • meteorologist

          Boldin prolly runs a 4.9 at best at this point

  • Tdoteaglefan

    Darby is siiiick!!!!

  • Crus57

    Think I’d rather have Pederson play QB than McGloin

    • SteveH

      How can you evaluate anything with McGloin in there.

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Oh great McGoin is on..

  • meteorologist

    Special team is trash this preseason

  • CrackSammich

    Kendricks just got pannccakkkedddd.

    • CrackSammich

      I suppose we should get used to that with Gerry in there.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Thank you that McGloin is on. Carson won’t get injured.

    • Nick C

      Carson’s heart still hurts. #SympathyPains

  • SteveH

    Veoao or however you spell it finally flashing. dumpstered whoever that OG was.

  • SteveH

    Pffft, only a headshake, no finger wag on that pass defense from Mills. Not in midseason form.

  • GermanEagle

    Omg. Darby is so much better than JM. And he keeps is feet in bounds.

    • A_T_G

      I agree, but he does have a bit of advantage going against Buffalo.

  • GermanEagle

    I wouldn’t trade Kendricks. Period.

  • A_T_G

    McGloin doesn’t seem to be retreating as much this week.

    • SteveH

      Damning with faint praise.

  • Obama’s son

    The Eagles look like SHIT so far.

  • DJH

    Special Teams struggling.

  • CrackSammich

    Howie is doing an outstanding job of bringing in guys with dreads. Guys I didn’t know had them: Marcus Johnson, Dallas Thomas.

    Guys I know have them: Sidney Jones, Darby, Blount, Tre Sullivan, CB Brooks, Jernigan, Means?

    • A_T_G

      I hear Kendricks is desperately trying to grow his out.

    • meteorologist

      Dallas Thomas has dreads? Thought he was white lol

      • A_T_G

        So did I.

      • CrackSammich

        That was Dallas Reynolds, the backup center a few years back.

    • Someguy77

      Team Milli Vanilli!

  • SteveH

    Whew, Rasul D. almost with his first pick. Nice.

  • CrackSammich

    There you go Rasul

  • Insomniac

    Dropsies is contagious.

  • SteveH

    I feel good about our defense, now if our OL could just step up I’d be ready to proclaim us super bowl favorites.

    • A_T_G

      I was listening while driving home, did they look better with Wentz in?

      • meteorologist

        The O line? Meh pass protection (lane gave up a bad sack). Bad run blocking

        • A_T_G

          I was hoping it was the QB calls.

          • SteveH

            It was crap pretty much from start to finish. The run game looks putrid so far.

  • SteveH

    Kendricks again. Stock is up and up and up lol.

    • CrackSammich

      schwarts looked pissed about it. like “fuck i have to keep this guy”

      • SteveH

        Sneaky bench next week.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I am totally unimpressed with Pumphrey. Reno Mahe light.

    • meteorologist

      Clement has looked nimbler than expected

      • D3FB

        Staley had him drop to 215

    • Someguy77

      He’s a midget out there and gets knocked around pretty easily.

  • SteveH

    Ok how in the hell do you say Rasul. I’ve heard 4 different pronunciations now.

    • CrackSammich

      like Russel.

      • SteveH

        That’s definitely not how Cory Undlin and Mayock said it tonight, which is why I’m confused.

        • A_T_G

          That’s probably because those letters in that order should not make the sounds that are apparently correct.

    • GENETiC-FREAK

      Think its Ra-Zool. Undlin says Ra-Sool

      • SteveH

        Build your own pronunciation.

    • BlindChow

      The official pronunciation guide the Eagles put out said “rah-SOOL.”

      • A_T_G

        The research team is in regular season form.

  • GermanEagle

    So who still wants to trade Kendricks for a 6th round pick?

    • SteveH

      I want to trade him for a 3rd round pick!

      • Nick C

        Howie would get a statue next to Rocky.

      • CrackSammich

        Kendricks + a 4 for a 3rd might get you that back.

      • Dragon_Eagle

        Yeah, and I want a live dragon. Good luck with that.

    • meteorologist

      I’m actually more excited about his trade value than his actual value to this football team

      • BlindChow

        They won’t be blitzing him much during the season, I’m guessing.

  • meteorologist

    Aghs ! So sudden!

  • A_T_G

    Agholor with a little swagger.

    • SteveH

      He’s so shifty. Showing the potential that got him drafted…. I don’t want to get excited about him but when he shows moves like that.

      • A_T_G

        I was more heartened by the head bobbing and talking to himself afterwards. He needs a little swagger to get over himself.

    • CrackSammich

      Swagholor

  • Nick C

    Bradford Checkdown tape.

  • Corry

    I’m good with McGloin not making the team.

  • DJH

    D looks dominant in all phases
    O pass game good
    O run game non existent
    Special teams poor

    Marcus Johnson looks sharp

    • A_T_G

      DOOSM? What is DOOSM? I think you mean…

      D looks dominant in all phases
      O pass game good
      O run game non existent
      Marcus Johnson looks sharp
      Egregious special teams fails
      D better be prepped to carry us.

  • Tdoteaglefan

    Clement TD!

    • A_T_G

      Wow, my illicit feed is at 1st and 20 Bills.

      • CrackSammich

        Try this one: http://wiz1.net/channel55

        It’s working great for me. Almost HD, no stuttering. Pop up blocker strongly recommended.

        • A_T_G

          First row sports is working pretty well, too, tonight.

  • GermanEagle

    I really struggle to understand the hatred against Kendricks. I know he’s got soft tissues issues, but would you really consider trading him for mid / late round draft pick given our questionable depth at LB.

    It’s not like we need more salary cap room this year.

    • A_T_G

      Just like Matthews, I think fans are too focused on getting any value for guys they want gone at the cost of depth. Kendricks costs more than Matthews, but I’ll take depth over a day 3 pick.

      • A_T_G

        To be clear, I am 100% behind the trade Howie conjured up.

    • Nick C

      A 3rd- Yes, In a second
      A 4th- Id think long and hard, but probably
      Anything lower with our lack of depth and Bradham’s issues– Nah

      • meteorologist

        4th is a no brainer to me

    • kajomo

      It’s all about 2018 cap space. We have so many pending FAs next year. Trading kendricks this year gives additional flexibility next year.

  • Someguy77

    Bills aren’t dumpster fire bad but they are right in line for another subpar 6-7 win season.

  • CrackSammich

    I wish the teams would agree to give some returnable kickoffs in the preseason, just to give them some practice.

  • SteveH

    What a time we live in, I feel more confident about our corners now than our OL.

  • SteveH

    I won’t get excited about Barnett. I won’t get excited about Barnett. I won’t get excited about Barnett.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Too late.

    • CrackSammich

      CHOO CHOOOOO

  • CrackSammich

    another for Barnett. Hype train leaving the station. CHOO CHOO

    • SteveH

      Stop, you’ll jinx it.

  • CrackSammich

    I think Kempski just came in his pants from that punt.

    • A_T_G

      I’m confused?

      • CrackSammich

        Bills punter stuck it on the 1. Kempski is obsessed with punting.

        • A_T_G

          Ah, I thought he tweeted, or you were watching the game with him, or something.

          • CrackSammich

            Nah, my press credentials were revoked for complete lack of talent.

          • Dragon_Eagle

            I fail to see the connection there.

          • or____

            well played sir

    • GENETiC-FREAK

      Photos?

  • A_T_G

    Is Clement going to be this year’s Mostert – looks good, we lament his dismissal, and he never makes us regret it?

    • BlindChow

      We might actually regret this one, seeing how Blount has looked…

      • A_T_G

        Well, the lack of regret with Mostert is based on what he did(n’t do), not the guys we kept making us forget him.

    • Corry

      Id keep Clement and put Pumphrey on IR with a season ending hangnail.

    • Allen3000

      I’m not sure how they would justify keeping Pumphrey over Clement (from what I’ve observed to date). I get that they want Pumphrey to be versatile and help in special teams, but he hardly looks special as a returner.

      I wasn’t a fan of the pick, but still hope the kid shines in Philly. As a I said before though, the odds of a RB his size panning out are very slim. For every Warrick Dunn, there are so many Noel Devine’s, Garrett Wolfe’s, Troy Davis’s, etc. And please don’t anyone say Darren Sproles or Brian Westbrook – both guys had a thicker build and were dominant special teams players in college.

      • A_T_G

        Well, that was the question I couldn’t seriously consider. There is no way in hell they actually do that, right?

        • Allen3000

          I’ve seen stranger things happen. IMO it would be a head scratcher since we already have 2 ‘small-ish’ backs in Sproles and Smallwood. Blount is our only big bruiser so it makes sense to keep a guy like Clement.

    • D3FB

      I think he’s Matthew Tucker-Kenjon Barner level. If we keep him he’ll be ok in his touches. If we let him go there’s 10-20 guys of the same caliber on the street.

  • A_T_G

    Terrible throw. Turribull.

    • CrackSammich

      And even with that, McGloin looks so much better this week.

    • SteveH

      At some point having a QB this crap hinders player evaluation.

  • GermanEagle

    Wish we had Joe MF Webb.

  • A_T_G

    Bills QB got rocked.

  • A_T_G

    Fipp better be shooting lasers.

  • A_T_G

    Both teams had three guys jump before the snap now. Pretty sure the center is doing something funny.

  • CrackSammich

    If you are also struggling to figure out who is on the field:

    http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/team/roster.html

    • BlindChow

      *sees someone wearing 24 in the secondary*

      N-Nnamdi…?

  • Someguy77

    What exactly is Foles’ status?

    • BlindChow

      Buddy, he’s the RaiNmaKER!!!!1

      • GENETiC-FREAK

        hahaha

    • Dragon_Eagle

      QB for the next 1,000 years

      • CrackSammich

        997 now.

  • CrackSammich

    Pumph is in.

  • Ark87

    So now that the starters are done, Kendricks was all over this game, very nice showing, traaaade baaaaiiit, actually he better stop this nonsense or I’ll want to keep him

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Yeah, Kendricks wins player of the game.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Worst part of this game, so far, was watching our atrocious excuse for a run game and then having to watch #25 run for the Bills. FU Chip!!

    • Ark87

      yeah, I really hope we have a little something stashed away in the playbook for the regular season, or that is going to be a hindrance to breaking past offensive mediocrity

  • CrackSammich

    Gerry looking good in coverage every time I think to watch him.

  • CrackSammich

    I don’t think Pumphrey is ever gonna be a true RB, and we’re not exactly throwing a bunch of screens for him to get crazy. I think he’s a guy you’ve got to design for.

    OL is doing no favors.

    • Ark87

      The only tiny RB’s that seem to survive turn into little pocket Hercules (bulk waaaay up). Mix that crazy agility with a stout low center of gravity, otherwise you’re absolutely right.

  • CrackSammich

    They gotta be making room for Tre Sullivan on the practice squad, right?

    • A_T_G

      They might be afraid to practice against him. #wigsplitter

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    White gonna get cut again..

  • GermanEagle

    Our first team D will be the best in the league.

  • GermanEagle

    Question:

    What round would you draft the Eagles D?

    • Dragon_Eagle

      If you’re in my league, first round.

      • GermanEagle

        Let me guess. Keeper league?! Lol

      • A_T_G

        At the latest.

        • GermanEagle

          #1 OVR

  • laeagle

    McGloin needs to be melted down to make glue

    • A_T_G

      Just watching, I think I pulled a McGroin, and not in a good way.

    • Ark87

      launched into the sun

      • A_T_G

        He’d be picked off by the moon. #currentevents

    • GermanEagle

      Did you get your eclipse glasses yet?

      • laeagle

        Picking them up tomorrow

    • Dragon_Eagle

      How many years has he been in the league? And how?

      • GermanEagle

        Ask Foles agent?

  • Obama’s son

    2 games in and they look like shit on O

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Evans >> McGroin

    • A_T_G

      I believe the quote is “damning with faint praise.”

  • CrackSammich

    ward for roster.

  • CrackSammich

    lol. Evans just threw into quadruple coverage and got rewarded for it.

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Gibson playing?

    • Corry

      Yeah. Had a couple off target throws go his way.

    • CrackSammich

      Seen him 3 times. First was a go route. Looked like a lot of contact, and he was calling for a flag. Second, throw was well out of bounds and he made a good attempt at keeping his feet in to get it. I think both were McGloin throws. Evans just ripped one that was well behind Gibson on a slant, and he almost made the catch.

  • Corry

    I’m good with Wentz and Foles on the roster with Evans on the practice squad.

    • Ark87

      same, would make me feel good about it too if Foles had a big game 4

      • Corry

        I’m good with just not seeing McGloin again.

        • Ark87

          that’s the given now…I hope. Doug is weird about veteran QB’s.

  • Corry

    Really? A challenge in the 4th quarter of a preseason game? C’mon man.

    • meteorologist

      I wanted that first down for Dane so bad… and he just rips my heart out

  • A_T_G

    It takes a big hit to stop Pumps momentum…

  • CrackSammich

    Aaron Neary is trying to get Pumphrey cut.

  • Allen3000

    McGloin is awful, but I have to give the guy credit. Somehow he’s carved out a nice little career (though his days are probably numbered) in the NFL. Who among us PSU fans ever would have thought this would be possible years ago? I thought Bill O’Brien deserved a lifetime achievement award for his job of developing McGloin.

  • Allen3000

    Lol, nice celebration Means.

  • SteveH

    The 4th quarter of preseason games……………. Really stretches my fandom.

  • GermanEagle

    Thank God we will get JP back.

    If we can run the ball like the middle of the pack we will be in good shape.

    And most importantly: good luck Jordan Matthews. But we don’t need your feet.

  • SteveH

    David Watford might not make the squad at this pace.

  • A_T_G

    It hurts, but the Yates/Riley combination is nearly unstoppable.

  • A_T_G

    Driving, I heard they were looking at Ertz’ core area. Any word on his health?

    • Corry

      Nothing mentioned on the Eagles game cast.

    • CrackSammich

      Nah, they were just checking out his sweet ab gains.

  • CrackSammich

    so, my RB depth chart right now?
    Sproles
    Blount
    Clement
    Marshall
    Pumphrey
    (smallwood? who knows)

    • A_T_G

      I don’t think Marshall gets that first or TD against starters.

      • BlindChow

        But Pumphrey DEFINITELY doesn’t.

  • CrackSammich

    both this week and last week, Gibson had the corner beat over the top but decided to basket catch it instead of getting his hands up. Both times, the corner blew it up because of it.

  • Corry

    I like Marshall at running back more than I like Pumphrey.

  • CrackSammich

    Means officially just beat out McCalister.

  • A_T_G

    Okay, bring out the first string DL.

  • CrackSammich

    The only good thing White did tonight.

    • BlindChow

      The only good thing he did this offseason.
