Gameday at WAS

Posted: September 10th, 2017 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 821 Comments »

Kickoff is fast approaching. Are you starting to get a little excited?

Here is the inactive list for today.

I was curious if they would go with LB Joe Walker or DE Steven Means. Obviously they went with the LB. Walker will make his NFL debut.

I also wondered about Jaylen Watkins vs Dexter McDougle. Watkins is more versatile and knows the scheme. That combination probably got him the nod. We’ll see if McDougle gets to play in a week or two.

It is nice when your team is healthy and the coaches have tough choices to make.

*****

The Skins have owned the Eagles recently, but I feel pretty good about today. The Eagles are better on the OL and DL and with their skill players. I don’t know that WAS is improved.

The last two times the Eagles played the Skins in the season opener (1996 & 2013), the good guys won. Let’s hope that trend continues.

Let’s also hope this is a fun season.

Here we go…

    The Eagles coverage right now is beyond oversaturated between Tommy, Kempski, McManus, and now Sheil Kapadia again. I can’t consume it all! It’s a golden age

    But right here is still my home base

    This is about the time the testosterone and adrenaline starts to kick in. 5 minutes before kickoff I’m ready to run through a fucking wall.

    Obviously this is the first step on our path to superbowl victory. GO BIRDS.

    My new pregame ritual?

  6. 6 Gary Barnes said at 12:39 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    GO EAGLES!!

  7. 7 TO BLACKS said at 2:24 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    GO WHERE?

  8. 8 Gary Barnes said at 12:54 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    One thing I always look for in the first game is our team fitness and the ability of players to play 4 quarters when they’ve gone through a TC and pre-season that actively works against getting many reps.

    Unfortunately, that can lead to injuries in the first game as we saw again in the KC – NE opener. I expect erratic execution on the offensive side especially in this first game as well for the same reason: very few reps together in game action.

  9. 9 TO BLACKS said at 2:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    You are a dumbass fantasy dickheaded FAGGOT.

  10. 10 Gary Barnes said at 12:56 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Kenny Albert and Tiki Barber as the Fox announcers, horrible.

  11. 11 Sean Stott said at 12:58 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    They’re not that offensive. They’re just not that great either.

  12. 12 meteorologist said at 12:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah not ideal…

  13. 13 Sean Stott said at 1:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Fwiw Fox is carrying this game in the OC / LA markets. They are a ‘featured’ duo now!

  14. 14 meteorologist said at 1:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    May have to try the “turn down the tv turn up the radio” thing

  15. 15 TO BLACKS said at 2:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    They both suck, that’s why I listen to WIP

  16. 16 Sean Stott said at 12:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    We need more Means! He should be in.

  17. 17 scratcherk said at 1:03 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Special teams has woken up!! WOOT

  18. 18 Ark87 said at 1:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Time to find out how my week is going to be. Beyond wins and losses, hope the team shows up. If Philly goes out that an drops a deuce, I’m going to be miserable.

  19. 19 scratcherk said at 1:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Atta boy D

  20. 20 Sean Stott said at 1:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    No

  21. 21 shah8 said at 1:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Hey guys, back to watch with you all.

    So far, defense looks improved.

  22. 22 Ryan Rambo said at 1:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Way to get off the field on 3rd and long guys!!

  23. 23 FairOaks said at 1:09 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    1 out of 2, anyways. They gave up the first 3rd and 11. Of course that second one should have been a gimme interception for Bradham, but overall just one positive play given up out of six. One may have been more to the receiver losing the ball, but overall a lot of good.

  24. 24 Ryan Rambo said at 1:19 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’m keeping it positive. I don’t expect them to win every 3rd down situation. Just don’t be a seive out there!!

  25. 25 Gary Barnes said at 1:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    How did Bradham drop that?? Wow, that was like throwing a punch at a cabana boy and missing completely

  26. 26 SteveH said at 1:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    CATCH THAT BRADHAM!

  27. 27 Ark87 said at 1:09 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Hope cousins continues to suck

  28. 28 SteveH said at 1:10 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Grizzle with the awesome run D already, 2 stops for him behind the line.

  29. 29 SeanofDead said at 1:11 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Good lookin start for the D!!!!!

  30. 30 Gary Barnes said at 1:11 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Both teams go for deep bombs on first play, lol

  31. 31 SeanofDead said at 1:11 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    underthrown…

  32. 32 Gary Barnes said at 1:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Poor throw by Wentz

  33. 33 shah8 said at 1:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Damn, that pass was too short, man,

  34. 34 scratcherk said at 1:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Run the ball Andy

  35. 35 Gary Barnes said at 1:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Throw it away, Wentz! C’mon!

  36. 36 shah8 said at 1:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    And an even worse sack! Jesus! Is the season over already?!!!

  37. 37 FairOaks said at 1:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    No.

  38. 38 scratcherk said at 1:14 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    overreact much?

  39. 39 scratcherk said at 1:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    O M G

  40. 40 FairOaks said at 1:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    well now.

  41. 41 Gary Barnes said at 1:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    LOL, Wentz incredible play for a TD!! Hahahahaha

  42. 42 scratcherk said at 1:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wow, like that Winston play. Horrible play at first!

  47. 47 SteveH said at 1:14 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    YUHHHHHHHH BOI

  48. 48 Sean Stott said at 1:14 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    WTF

  49. 49 meteorologist said at 1:14 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Couldn’t put it better myself

  50. 50 Ryan Rambo said at 1:14 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That play gave me the goosebumps and I also need to change my drawz!! Be right back!!! #Carson2Nelson

  51. 51 Sean Stott said at 1:14 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That was epic

  52. 52 Ark87 said at 1:15 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wait he caught it AND shrugs off a tackle

  53. 53 Gary Barnes said at 1:17 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Cousins inaccurate so far

  54. 54 SeanofDead said at 1:18 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Skins already feeling the loss of Cravens..?…

  55. 55 Gary Barnes said at 1:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Its a FUMBLE!!

  56. 56 Gary Barnes said at 1:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Hicks recovers, nice!

  57. 57 Gary Barnes said at 1:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Cox with the strip

  58. 58 shah8 said at 1:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Cousins has been awful.

  59. 59 shah8 said at 1:22 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That means we get more ball!

  60. 60 Gary Barnes said at 1:22 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    HATE that quick out to the sideline play, just awful

  61. 61 FairOaks said at 1:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Many years of trying, hard to remember even one significant gain on that play. Started with Quick Out To Pinkston, I think, and has never stopped since. Even though we’ve never had anyone that can actually do it.

  62. 62 Gary Barnes said at 1:24 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Exactly, when will the learning process come into play?

  63. 63 Sean Stott said at 1:22 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    This crew is like watching a WAS preseason team casted game

  64. 64 scratcherk said at 1:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    WHAT WHATTTTT

  65. 65 shah8 said at 1:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Bad screen effort, in all.

  66. 66 shah8 said at 1:24 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Bad referees stopping plays for no good reason.

  67. 67 Insomniac said at 1:24 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Refs in preseason form still.

  68. 68 shah8 said at 1:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    now, the run blocking was great there!

  69. 69 Gary Barnes said at 1:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Have we done one running play yet? lol

  70. 70 ConcussedFB said at 1:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    1, less I missed one

  71. 71 Gary Barnes said at 1:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Nice! FIRST DOWN

  72. 72 Checkdown Charlie said at 1:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Way to go Ags

  73. 73 shah8 said at 1:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Aghelor is really playing with confidence that we didn’t see last year!

  74. 74 Insomniac said at 1:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I don’t know what to say. Ags is HANDS catching and not that body catching BS.

  75. 75 FairOaks said at 1:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Torrey Smith THAT WAS A LIVE BALL

  76. 76 SteveH said at 1:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

  77. 77 shah8 said at 1:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    So far, the passing offense is still baby-qb level…

  78. 78 Gary Barnes said at 1:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    BRUTAL play, wow really poor execution and play call there

  79. 79 SeanofDead said at 1:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    FUcking stupid….and Smith standing there like an asshole

  80. 80 SteveH said at 1:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

  81. 81 Checkdown Charlie said at 1:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That sucked

  82. 82 meteorologist said at 1:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    No one gonna point out how TORREY SMITH JUST STOOD THERE AND WATCHED THE BALL

  83. 83 shah8 said at 1:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Oh my god, watching the replay, inexcusably inaccurate throw!

  84. 84 Insomniac said at 1:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    You’re a fricking vet, that’s inexcusable.

  85. 85 Ark87 said at 1:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Smith nOT diving on that ball…

  86. 86 FairOaks said at 1:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Hard to know what that play call is. Was it supposed to be a backwards pass? Terrible execution either way.

  87. 87 ACViking said at 1:29 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Dreadful play design (with WR behind QB).

    Compounded by Wentz’s (seemingly continued) problem throwing laterally

  88. 88 SteveH said at 1:29 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Compounded further by smith not jumping on the ball. 3 fails on 1 play, impressive.

  89. 89 anon said at 1:30 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    he’s much better scrambling and then throwing downfield

  90. 90 Ark87 said at 1:29 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That was brutal

  91. 91 scratcherk said at 1:30 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Pryor terrible drop, holding anyway

  92. 92 Checkdown Charlie said at 1:30 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Whew

  93. 93 SteveH said at 1:30 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Graham drew the holding play. Dude is a wrecking ball.

  94. 94 shah8 said at 1:30 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Thankfully, desean Jackson is gone, there!

  95. 95 Gary Barnes said at 1:31 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Good tackle, Rodney!

  96. 96 SteveH said at 1:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Cousins not sliding, interesting, what does he have to prove? Save your body Kirk!

  97. 97 meteorologist said at 1:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Curry on the ground alert

  98. 98 shah8 said at 1:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    McLeod had a great tackle.

  99. 99 SeanofDead said at 1:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Nice blitz Schwartzie

  100. 100 SteveH said at 1:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Good hold D, don’t give up points after a dreadful turnover.

  101. 101 FairOaks said at 1:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Sell out blitz, interesting, and it worked.

  102. 102 shah8 said at 1:34 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah, this has been interesting. Typically, the best thing to do with the likes of Cousins and Dalton is to be conservative about the pass rush and force these guys to actually think and process.

  103. 103 FairOaks said at 1:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Pryor looks like a bad matchup for us. As fast as Darby and way bigger. At least he’s got 2016 Agholor hands.

  104. 104 Gary Barnes said at 1:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Schwartz with a JJ classic overload blitz

  105. 105 Checkdown Charlie said at 1:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Now, make up for that sh_t Wentz and Smith

  106. 106 shah8 said at 1:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Cousins has been awful. Watches his payday draining away…

  107. 107 SteveH said at 1:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Nah man if Osweiler can get that kind of $$$ Cousins is gonna get PAID.

  108. 108 SteveH said at 1:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Additionally on the fail fumble, even if Agholor caught that he was about to get blown up for like a 5 yard loss… Just a real headscratcher after we started so well.

  109. 109 meteorologist said at 1:34 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Because Torrey Smith blew his block

  110. 110 FairOaks said at 1:34 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Smith missed his assigned block badly.

    May have been a halfback pass type of play (well may be WR pass), or … not sure what else it could have been. Awful throw, awful blocking, awful awareness. Likely was an awful play call too.

  111. 111 Ark87 said at 1:37 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Was on the verge of being blown up because Smith put as much into his blocking assignment as he does into his fumble recovery. Tear that one out of the playbook. Don’t ever put Smith at the point of attack. No laterals

  112. 112 meteorologist said at 1:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Was wondering who 41 with dreads is flying around looking fast… forgot Darby changed his number. Wasn’t expecting it to be him

  113. 113 daveH said at 1:35 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Just turned the game on .. taped .. just saw the unbelievable …

  114. 114 SteveH said at 1:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    haha, yeah that will blow your mind.

  115. 115 scratcherk said at 1:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    hate when i see blount run the stretch

  116. 116 SteveH said at 1:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I dont mind when he gains 5 on first down though.

  117. 117 Insomniac said at 1:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Shades of Demarco Murray and Chip.

  118. 118 scratcherk said at 1:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    that i like

  119. 119 SteveH said at 1:37 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Damn, our run game is still struggling…

  120. 120 scratcherk said at 1:37 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    shotgun run on third and one… sigh

  121. 121 Checkdown Charlie said at 1:37 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Oy Vey

  122. 122 Someguy77 said at 1:38 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    F@cking terrible call

  123. 123 Crus57 said at 1:38 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Key so far is anytime Vaitai is in the play is going to go badly somehow.

  124. 124 scratcherk said at 1:38 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    eagles ball

  125. 125 ACViking said at 1:38 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    HATE SHORT-YARDAGE PLAYS OUT OF THE SHOTGUN!!!

    Chip Kelly ruined football with that.

  126. 126 BobSmith77 said at 1:40 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Doubly foolish with Blount.

  127. 127 SteveH said at 1:38 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    YEAH FUCK CROWDER!

  128. 128 scratcherk said at 1:38 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    thank you fipp

  129. 129 meteorologist said at 1:38 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Sun must be bright? Ppl dropping balls like crazy

  130. 130 SeanofDead said at 1:38 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Absolutely must convert this into points

  131. 131 Someguy77 said at 1:39 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Skins have executing poorly across the board. Eagles need to take advantage.

  132. 132 meteorologist said at 1:39 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    What a throw by Wentz

  133. 133 scratcherk said at 1:39 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    terrible block by blount

  134. 134 SteveH said at 1:39 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Jesus Christ Wentz is like coated in Vaseline or something.

  135. 135 scratcherk said at 1:40 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    there we go

  136. 136 ACViking said at 1:40 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wentz putting up highlight plays . . .

    But where’s the O-line?

  137. 137 Insomniac said at 1:40 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Blount whiffed on his block. The OL did enough on that play.

  138. 138 BobSmith77 said at 1:41 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Pressure from everywhere even when Skins are sending just 4

  139. 139 wallacemnw said at 1:40 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    where is Alshon?

  140. 140 meteorologist said at 1:40 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yessss feed Ertzz

  141. 141 scratcherk said at 1:40 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    march boys

  142. 142 SeanofDead said at 1:40 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Carson “The Contortionist” Wentz

  143. 143 Checkdown Charlie said at 1:40 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Good pocket

  144. 144 scratcherk said at 1:41 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    lets run it in

  145. 145 shah8 said at 1:41 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Redskins are on their heels…

  146. 146 BobSmith77 said at 1:42 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Need to put up 7 here to do that

  147. 147 shah8 said at 1:42 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    yup, so get it when they soft.

  148. 148 meteorologist said at 1:41 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Any throw to Ertz is automatically a high percentage throw

  149. 149 FairOaks said at 1:41 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Blount is definitely way better at getting those 2-3 yards after contact.

    Dude is a monster if he gets a full head of steam.

    Jeffrey’s first catch as an eagle coming right here

  154. 154 scratcherk said at 1:45 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    good throw would have been td

  155. 155 shah8 said at 1:45 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    accurate pass is a td

  156. 156 meteorologist said at 1:45 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wentz is awful at those flat throws. Nice catch by Ags

  157. 157 BobSmith77 said at 1:46 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    No touch or feel like McNabb early in his career.

  158. 158 scratcherk said at 1:46 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    punch it in

  159. 159 scratcherk said at 1:46 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    dont get clever

  160. 160 BobSmith77 said at 1:46 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    More awful play calling.

    one. yard. line.

  162. 162 Spooonius said at 1:47 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Please just try to pound it in.

  163. 163 scratcherk said at 1:47 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    hold offense

  164. 164 scratcherk said at 1:47 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    UYAUAUAUAUAUAU

  165. 165 Checkdown Charlie said at 1:47 PM on September 10th, 2017:

  167. 167 SteveH said at 1:47 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    thought for sure that was OPI lol

  168. 168 FairOaks said at 1:47 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    oh wow, offside defense! declined!

    Blount scored, but … not exactly pounding it in. But we scored.

  169. 169 Spooonius said at 1:48 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I thought it was a hold on Celek!!

  170. 170 SteveH said at 1:48 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    ahh fuck sturgis. Way to harsh our buzz.

  171. 171 BobSmith77 said at 1:48 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Didn’t like the call but it worked. 2 times from within the 1 and two passes.

    Why did they sign Blount again?

  172. 172 shah8 said at 1:48 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Washington should melt down from there.

    I thought the previous pass was a grounding!

  173. 173 shah8 said at 1:48 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    awww, mannnn….

  174. 174 Crus57 said at 1:48 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    For a big guy Blount pulled a nice move there to dodge their LB

  175. 175 meteorologist said at 1:49 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Has very nimble feet

  176. 176 Insomniac said at 1:49 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He’s very agile for his size.

  177. 177 Insomniac said at 1:49 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Sturgis please.

  178. 178 meteorologist said at 1:50 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    :O kendricks sighting

  179. 179 FairOaks said at 1:50 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    No helmet to helmet either. Really solid tackle.

  180. 180 ACViking said at 1:50 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Never understood why Blount (1) was undrafted [other than punching out opposing player, and (2) why he’s played for 5 teams

  181. 181 BobSmith77 said at 1:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Dirtbag who had a lot of off-field issues and in the locker room

  182. 182 Insomniac said at 1:54 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He had baggage since college. I’m not quite sure if he got into trouble in tn the NFL. Blount is a 2 down RB, those guys are getting phased out despite Blount being one of the better 2 down guys.

  183. 183 scratcherk said at 1:50 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    kendricks laying the lumber

  184. 184 Ark87 said at 1:50 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Can’t complain about the results, but was a bit too cute for my tastes. Can see why we got rid of Jmatt, Aghs seems like the offense is built around him

  185. 185 anon said at 1:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    whoever found his hands should get a bonus

  186. 186 scratcherk said at 1:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Jay Gruden found a treadmill this offseason

  187. 187 SteveH said at 1:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Ahhhhhh shittttt Darby down. Just what we need.

  188. 188 scratcherk said at 1:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    fuck noncontact injury to darby

  189. 189 FairOaks said at 1:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Holding his foot, so maybe not a knee

  190. 190 Ryan Rambo said at 1:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Damn. Darby

  191. 191 scratcherk said at 1:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    looks like achilles…

  192. 192 meteorologist said at 1:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Not to me that’s more towards the back of the foot

  193. 193 meteorologist said at 1:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Geez dislocated ankle??

  194. 194 shah8 said at 1:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Cousins is free to catch those tackles! He’s entitled to a first down or two!

  195. 195 ACViking said at 1:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Darby’s done for the year.

    Exploding ACL

  196. 196 Spooonius said at 1:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Looks like his ankle dislocated

  197. 197 ACViking said at 1:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    YES!!!

    See that now.

  198. 198 SteveH said at 1:53 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Hooray for dislocated ankle! lol

  199. 199 Spooonius said at 1:54 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It also looked like they were having difficulty putting it back. Might be a break which means he’d still be done

  200. 200 BobSmith77 said at 1:58 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Still a severe injury and can have a lot of soft tissue damage too.

  201. 201 CTbirdsguy said at 1:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    his ankle looks broken as f***

  202. 202 SteveH said at 1:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    His ankle. It looks bad.

  203. 203 Insomniac said at 1:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Noooooooooooooooooo

  204. 204 truehaynes said at 1:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Gotta hope for just a dislocated ank

  205. 205 Ark87 said at 1:53 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He rolled it good

  206. 206 BobSmith77 said at 1:53 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Rolled right ankle and getting carted off the field. At the best, he has a moderate sprain.

    Imagine Darby is gone for at least 2 weeks

  207. 207 truehaynes said at 1:54 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Ankle was broken or dislocated looking at the video

  208. 208 ACViking said at 1:54 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Well . . . Darby’s not quite Randall Cunningham.

    But it’s about that time of the opening day game to lose him (as Cunningham was lost against GB in ’91)

  209. 209 BobSmith77 said at 1:54 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    If that is discolated ankle, it is surgery and done for the year.

    Hope a moderate sprain and out 4-6 weeks

  210. 210 shah8 said at 1:54 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    So big trade isn’t going to pay off as much….

    Scoreboard watching, looks like Tom Savage is having a terrible game.

  211. 211 scratcherk said at 1:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Hope Rasul can get good quick, fuck robinson in,….

  212. 212 FairOaks said at 1:57 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Rasul and Dexter both inactive.

  213. 213 scratcherk said at 1:57 PM on September 10th, 2017:

  215. 215 meteorologist said at 1:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    This is a HUGE deal for our season. We gave up a 3rd round pick for him because we recognized our massive hole at CB. Rasul Douglas isn’t even active which doesn’t speak well for his development. This. is. very bad

  216. 216 scratcherk said at 1:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Was still the right move. Injuries are unfortunate.

  217. 217 meteorologist said at 1:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Absolutely the right move. I just think our upside as a team is limited this season now

  218. 218 Insomniac said at 1:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It’s not even the 3rd round pick that hurts. Darby going down hurts the entire process. He can’t develop as a player, Howie can’t evaluate if he’s worth resigning, and it hurts our defense a shit ton.

  219. 219 FairOaks said at 2:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    We have two years on the re-sign part, though obviously we may not be able to do it next off-season, where we had the leverage of another year on the contract.

  220. 220 meteorologist said at 2:20 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah! Just saying we gave up a third as a measure of how desperate we were/ how well we thought of him

  221. 221 anon said at 1:57 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Damn, watching them trying to put that ankle back – no good.

  222. 222 SeanofDead said at 1:58 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Dangnabit…they are gonna test the corners big time..Need Dline to step up

  223. 223 shah8 said at 1:58 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    no confidence in Cousins so far… Even with crippled Eagles backfield?

  224. 224 meteorologist said at 1:58 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Without Darby our ceiling for this season isn’t much better than last year imo. 9-7 is a good guess imo

  225. 225 scratcherk said at 1:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Alshon appearance

  226. 226 Ark87 said at 2:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That was gentlemanly of the Skins. Lost our only good corner, they immediately run twice

  227. 227 scratcherk said at 2:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    maybe he thinks ags is taller than he is

  228. 228 BobSmith77 said at 2:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wentz has made some nice plays but had several bad accuracy misfires too

  229. 229 scratcherk said at 2:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    fuck…

  230. 230 T_S_O_P said at 2:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wtf

  231. 231 BobSmith77 said at 2:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    sigh.

  232. 232 scratcherk said at 2:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    tip?>

  233. 233 FairOaks said at 2:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That was a rather unfortunate tipped pass.

  234. 234 shah8 said at 2:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    WAT DA FUUUUUUURRRRRRKkk!!?

  235. 235 scratcherk said at 2:02 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    hit carson in the helmet, woulda have been a penalty if it was peyton

  236. 236 ACViking said at 2:02 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wentz . . . reverting to form?

    Boy, didn’t have a good foundation on either throw that series

  237. 237 BobSmith77 said at 2:03 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Got happy feet and feeling the pressure. This OL has stunk in pass protection today so far.

  238. 238 FairOaks said at 2:03 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It was tipped, so did not go where Wentz threw it. Maybe on Wentz to make sure he doesn’t get tipped at that spot on the field. Or maybe should have called more runs.

  239. 239 Insomniac said at 2:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I still think it might have been the same result. Kerrigan could have still read him like a book and picked it off. Bad read and even worse throw.

  240. 240 Spooonius said at 2:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It looked like that to me too. It was well covered

  241. 241 Insomniac said at 2:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yea it really did.

  242. 242 FairOaks said at 2:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Could have had more on it, and gotten out there much faster. A typical overthrow would have just been OB. Wentz doesn’t seem like he makes the ill-advised throw as much.

  243. 243 Insomniac said at 2:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It was to Sproles and Kerrigan is most likely going to break it up or pick it off just due to the size advantage alone.

  244. 244 Ark87 said at 2:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I second the more running bit

  245. 245 BobSmith77 said at 2:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Isn’t going to happen with this offense. Going to a 60/40 mix

  246. 246 T_S_O_P said at 2:03 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    If we could mix Donnie’s worm killers with Wentz’s air balls, we’d have a consistently good delivery.

  247. 247 meteorologist said at 2:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Didn’t notice but I’ll keep an eye out!

  248. 248 shah8 said at 2:02 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Carson Wentz’ inaccuracy is just completely unacceptable. He’s not Jameis Winston where he’s good enough to be functional despite being inaccurate.

  249. 249 SteveH said at 2:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    You should probably write him a sternly worded letter.

  250. 250 ACViking said at 2:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Comment of the day

  251. 251 shah8 said at 2:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’ll leave it to his coaches.

  252. 252 BobSmith77 said at 2:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Doesn’t seem to matter who is matched up against Kerrigan. Just seems to have a good game with a big play or two.

  253. 253 Ryan Rambo said at 2:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Run the EFFING ball!!!

  254. 254 Spooonius said at 2:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    i feel like Smallwood is gonna break one soon

  255. 255 Ryan Rambo said at 2:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    One of his legs?

  256. 256 Spooonius said at 2:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Ha! Hopefully not today

  257. 257 Ryan Rambo said at 2:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Definitely not. I’ll take a long TD!

  258. 258 Spooonius said at 2:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Either way, I stand by my comment.

  259. 259 Ryan Rambo said at 2:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Lol

  260. 260 daveH said at 2:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yup

    Top class officiating, we have a prime minister here in Blighty that changes her mind in a very similar way.

  263. 263 ACViking said at 2:09 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Interview with Dean Blandino . . .

    I’ve been waiting since February for that.

  264. 264 Insomniac said at 2:09 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Blandino has such a punch-able face.

  265. 265 Ryan Rambo said at 2:10 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Gonna start drinking.

  266. 266 meteorologist said at 2:10 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    This ref really has a beef with Wentz! He got in his face earlier now he’s saying forward progress stopped?!!!

  267. 267 Spooonius said at 2:11 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I didn’t know they still called that

  268. 268 ACViking said at 2:10 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Is Lane better when he takes “vitamins”?

  269. 269 scratcherk said at 2:11 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    accurate screen pass, thank you

  270. 270 T_S_O_P said at 2:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Lovely downfield B from Kelce

  271. 271 scratcherk said at 2:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    need a better block from smallwood there

  272. 272 Insomniac said at 2:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Sproles still quick as hell. Nothing like that Pumphrey guy.

  273. 273 Checkdown Charlie said at 2:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Give Johnson some Roids

  274. 274 shah8 said at 2:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Man, this game is making me not so optimistic about the season. Except that there looks to be a lot of terrible teams this year. Looking at the scoreboard, who’d want to watch Ravens-Bengals, or Jags-Texans?

  275. 275 BobSmith77 said at 2:15 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It’s Week 1. It will take at least 6-7 weeks to a feel for how this offense will gel.

  276. 276 ChoTime said at 2:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Don’t think it works that way. These early games often show flaws that will be here all year.

  277. 277 SteveH said at 2:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Man… I still feel like a win today, but that Darby injury has really bummed me out… First half of the first game, goddamn.

  278. 278 Insomniac said at 2:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Oof Brooks getting pancaked by Zach Brown.

  279. 279 meteorologist said at 2:15 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He’s a pro bowl linebacker.. who I didn’t know was a pro bowler nor that he was on the Redskins till today…

  280. 280 Insomniac said at 2:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Brooks is like 330+ pounds. Brown is like a 250 pound LB.

  281. 281 teltschikfakeout88 said at 2:20 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That was pathetic….the skins DL is not that good…but yet we are struggling in key situations where we should have an advantage….peters is playing like he’s old and Johnson is struggling with Kerrigan

  282. 282 BobSmith77 said at 2:14 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    OL has been incredibly underwhelming so far. Wentz has made a few poor throws but no one on the line is playing well

  283. 283 SteveH said at 2:14 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah the line still feels like it’s coming together… Or coming apart, who knows.

  284. 284 Insomniac said at 2:15 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Maybe both at the same time.

  285. 285 scratcherk said at 2:15 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    surprised sproles wasnt in on the third down, hes the best pass blocker and catcher back

    Hey guys I’m in the middle of Irma n S. FL. Can someone tell me score and how it’s going briefly, especially how Wentz looks? I know we lost Darby. Cannot get another Ste to load. Plzzzzzz. I’m having more anxiety over this then the giant Hurricane. That last statement is dead serious.

  289. 289 scratcherk said at 2:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    keep safe man

    It’s a game. Stay safe and hope are you and yours are doing ok

  292. 292 scratcherk said at 2:17 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wentz looks OK, needs more time to throw. Few high throws. Defense playing well. Refs picking up where they left off…

  293. 293 Insomniac said at 2:18 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Stay safe man. Darby might be done for the year. Wentz looks about the same. OL looks very underwhelming. Blount is as advertised. Smallwood looks like a JAG. Alshon getting locked down by Norman. Agholor looks way better than Matthews.

  294. 294 wee2424 said at 2:20 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Thank you. If they put a 19 inch tube TV in the middle of the canal next to me I would swim to watch it.

  295. 295 wee2424 said at 2:22 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    How does Peters look? Seumalo showing promise?

  296. 296 Insomniac said at 2:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I would say the left side has been holding up a bit better than the right side of the OL. Our RBs have been struggling with pass blocking so it’s making Peters and Seumalo look bad. Although they are having their struggles too.

  297. 297 FairOaks said at 2:19 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wentz looks good except on short throws. Defense playing pretty well. Two turnovers each team, so some sloppiness. Each team a TD off a turnover. 13-7 Eagles (missed extra point). Other TD was a Wentz scramble then finding an open Agholor for a 58 yard TD.

  298. 298 wee2424 said at 2:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I know Wentz fumbled once. The other a pick?

  299. 299 FairOaks said at 2:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    First was a Wentz overthow of a …screen? lateral? which was not well blocked and Eagles stood around while the ball was live. Second was a tipped pass pick-six.

    Redskins just scored on a pass with four missed tackles, 14-13.

  300. 300 scratcherk said at 2:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    ARE U FUCKING KIDDING

  301. 301 FairOaks said at 2:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    #20 is in the area!?!?! oh please

  302. 302 SteveH said at 2:18 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That’s an Eli.

  303. 303 BobSmith77 said at 2:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Eagles DL though is playing very well early on

  304. 304 ACViking said at 2:17 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Mills has been targeted on nearly every Washington pass.

  305. 305 Insomniac said at 2:18 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Just like last year!

  306. 306 BobSmith77 said at 2:18 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Noticed that too. I would too. He’s too slow to play outside and players don’t get faster in the offseason.

  307. 307 SteveH said at 2:19 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    With Darby out it’s going to get worse, soon Robinson will be targeted.

  308. 308 SteveH said at 2:19 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Rasul Douglas, your NFL debut is going to come sooner than expected.

  309. 309 ACViking said at 2:20 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I sure hope it’s not Dexter McDougle . . .

    I mean, he wasn’t good enough for the Jets to keep him.
    (Speaking of which, is his 1-year extension a phantom w/ no cost if cut?)

  310. 310 FairOaks said at 2:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Maybe he was too good for the Jets to keep him. We can hope.

  311. 311 Ryan Rambo said at 2:22 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Darby wasn’t going to remain a Bill either. If he was, he def wasn’t going to be starting.

  312. 312 scratcherk said at 2:20 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    havent seen any update on teh injury yet, anyone see anything?

  313. 313 meteorologist said at 2:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I mean I was expecting him to play today..

  314. 314 SteveH said at 2:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    We tip it, first down them. They tip it, defensive TD.

  315. 315 Insomniac said at 2:22 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Seems about right, we’re sort of always on the losing end when it comes to luck.

  316. 316 meteorologist said at 2:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Well…

  317. 317 scratcherk said at 2:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    darby please just take one of patrick robinsons ankles and come back

  318. 318 Spooonius said at 2:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Halftime please.

  319. 319 scratcherk said at 2:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    score first hopefully

  320. 320 teltschikfakeout88 said at 2:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Pathetic tackling

  321. 321 shah8 said at 2:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    and now we’re losing this game, when we should have been blowing them out.

  322. 322 anon said at 2:24 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    carson giveth and taketh away

  323. 323 ChoTime said at 2:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    was he playing well before? I got here and it was 13-0 and it’s been shit since

  324. 324 anon said at 2:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    couple of nice plays, yup

  325. 325 Insomniac said at 2:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He looks good while extending plays. Under center with a clean pocket he looks about the same.

  326. 326 SteveH said at 2:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Anddd that missed XP starts looming large.

  327. 327 Insomniac said at 2:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Andddd we’re losing.

  328. 328 TO BLACKS said at 2:24 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    THE EAGLES BLOW N GGER DICK

  329. 329 T_S_O_P said at 2:24 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Bollocks, just had to get my son

  330. 330 ChoTime said at 2:24 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wow, I hate when other players look like Superman against us.

  331. 331 xeynon said at 2:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    This is a very frustrating first half. We should be up by two TDs. Shaky offensive line play is killing us.

  332. 332 Spooonius said at 2:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It’s obviously Darby’s injury that let Washington back in this.

  333. 333 Insomniac said at 2:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Oh god

  334. 334 Spooonius said at 2:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    My god these underthrows are frustrating. At least he’s consistent.

  335. 335 anon said at 2:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    he also has a lot of overthrows

  336. 336 Spooonius said at 2:30 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Consistently inconsistent.

  337. 337 Insomniac said at 2:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’m hoping it’s just rust but that was under thrown.

  338. 338 xeynon said at 2:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Lane Johnson did not look like a $10 million dollar offensive lineman there.

  339. 339 meteorologist said at 2:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Can we get a Jeffery sighting? Please?

  340. 340 meteorologist said at 2:29 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Oh

  341. 341 FairOaks said at 2:29 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He just forced it to him when Agholor was wide open.

  342. 342 meteorologist said at 2:31 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yikes

  343. 343 SteveH said at 2:29 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    lol, ok Tiki Barber who considers our OL the best in football?

  344. 344 scratcherk said at 2:29 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    our OL

  345. 345 SteveH said at 2:30 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Lane needs to figure out how to sneak his roids past the screening because he hasn’t been good at all lately.

  346. 346 xeynon said at 2:30 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Supposedly Pro Football Focus ranked them right up there. Which shows you what PFF grades are worth.

  347. 347 meteorologist said at 2:31 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    “Tiki barber” lol

  348. 348 T_S_O_P said at 2:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    The Giants? πŸ˜‰

  349. 349 ChoTime said at 2:29 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    does every wentz pass have a Was fingertip on it at some point?

  350. 350 shah8 said at 2:30 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    At least in this drive, I think Wentz is only really having one read!

  351. 351 SteveH said at 2:30 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    anyone trust Sturgis to hit this end of the half FG?

  352. 352 Insomniac said at 2:31 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Not really.

  353. 353 scratcherk said at 2:31 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Our first JP injury of hte year

  354. 354 Spooonius said at 2:31 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    We should have done an over under

  355. 355 scratcherk said at 2:31 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    over

  356. 356 BobSmith77 said at 2:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Not a surprising injury for a heavy guy with a bad back.

  357. 357 xeynon said at 2:34 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’m not thrilled about the idea of Big V as left tackle.

  358. 358 SteveH said at 2:31 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    wooo, first Darby now Peters, first game is great.

  359. 359 meteorologist said at 2:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Catestrophic

  360. 360 BobSmith77 said at 2:31 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Peters strained groin and out for the game.

  361. 361 ACViking said at 2:31 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    One thing Chip Kelly did great . . .
    Getting Eagles — and all NFL — to get to the O-line f-a-s-t in the 2-minute drill

  362. 362 BobSmith77 said at 2:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    This looks like a Reid 2-minute drill and last year they struggled with it too.

  363. 363 xeynon said at 2:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    At least Agholor-as-dependable-slot-receiver looks like it might be a real thing.

  364. 364 SteveH said at 2:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah, this is already his career game.

  365. 365 xeynon said at 2:38 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’m as impressed by the tough catches in traffic as I am by the TD.

  366. 366 Insomniac said at 2:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    The next thing that we didn’t need is Vaitai playing RT. I feel like turning the game off now.

  367. 367 meteorologist said at 2:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Think vaitai may go to LT

  368. 368 Insomniac said at 2:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Don’t you put that voodoo on us.

  369. 369 meteorologist said at 2:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Ertz having another sneaky monster game feels like

  370. 370 scratcherk said at 2:35 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Money Sturgis

  371. 371 Spooonius said at 2:35 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wow. Did not expect that!

  372. 372 Crus57 said at 2:35 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Sturgical precision.

  373. 373 shah8 said at 2:35 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Think that last almost int is on Jeffrey.

  374. 374 xeynon said at 2:35 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wasn’t a smart decision to throw it. He was pretty well covered.

  375. 375 shah8 said at 2:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    nah, he was supposed to throw it there. Jeffrey was supposed to win it. Jeffrey failed to highpoint the catch, and wound up having to wrestle the ball away.

  376. 376 FairOaks said at 2:37 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I think a jump ball with Jeffery is an OK throw to make. Jeffery did fight to prevent the interception, unlike last years’ WRs. Worth a gamble to me, and still had time for the FG.

  377. 377 xeynon said at 2:39 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    An INT there is a killer and there were two guys in position to make the play if it’s even slightly underthrown. On a 40 yard throw I’m not crazy about that.

  378. 378 FairOaks said at 2:47 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It was 50-yard chance for a FG, hardly a gimme. And a TD would have been huge. We haven’t had someone like Jeffery who can win jump balls; I don’t mind trying it out. And Jeffery is better at defending the interception than we have had in the past as well (which was close there, to be sure). Have to take some risks, and thought that was a reasonable play call and throw.

  379. 379 Insomniac said at 2:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Seems under thrown to me but could be Alshon not reading the ball well and overrunning it at the same time.

  380. 380 SteveH said at 2:35 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I did not expect Sturgis to make that lol.

  381. 381 meteorologist said at 2:35 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I had 0 confidence

  382. 382 Ark87 said at 2:39 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Rande had me believing Irma was in DC

  383. 383 shah8 said at 2:35 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    okay we got the lead at least.

  384. 384 xeynon said at 2:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    We got the lead back, and get the ball first in the second half. Would like to see a quick TD to restore order.

  385. 385 Tumtum said at 2:43 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Any room left at the bar? Sorry Im late. So it was nice having a real CB for 10 minutes, right?!?

  386. 386 Crus57 said at 2:45 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He looked pretty good too, always in the camera shot when the ball arrived which isn’t much but better than we’re used to

  387. 387 Steve Ebersole said at 2:45 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Can we please stop hearing about how dominant this defensive line is going to be? By far the most disappointing part of this game so far

  388. 388 Tumtum said at 2:46 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’ve been the guy with that voice most off season, but u cray. Line has been good.

  389. 389 Steve Ebersole said at 1:03 PM on September 11th, 2017:

    It was good in the 4th quarter for sure. Hopefully that is what we see moving forward. But aside from some bad throws from Cousins and dropped passes, the defense was “ok”

  390. 390 Tumtum said at 1:51 PM on September 11th, 2017:

    Secondary issues are known. The Redskins couldn’t run at all. That can’t be over looked.

  391. 391 Steve Ebersole said at 1:10 PM on September 11th, 2017:

    They were definitely dominant in the 4th quarter. Hopefully that is what we see moving forward. Personally I thought that they were not great up to that point. If not for some bad Cousins throws and bad drops we’d have been down at halftime and the outcome might have been different. You are entitled to a different PoV

  392. 392 Tumtum said at 1:51 PM on September 11th, 2017:

    I was pretty impressed all game long to be honest.

  393. 393 meteorologist said at 2:46 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wouldn’t say “by far” in a game we lost our CB1 and starting LT

  394. 394 Tumtum said at 2:47 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    With any luck JP loss will be nothing like darby

  395. 395 meteorologist said at 2:48 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    If nothing else, will deplete our OL depth

  396. 396 Tumtum said at 2:53 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    On que, sideline reporter says Skins had to go to quick game due to pressure.

  397. 397 Steve Ebersole said at 3:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Disappointed means something that does not live up to expectations. Not sure people really go into a season expecting no injuries. But sure it sucks to have lost Darby – sure seemed like he’ll be out for quite some time. we’ll have to wait and see how severe Peter’s injury is

  398. 398 Ark87 said at 2:45 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It’s looking like week 1 out there. Messy game on both sides

  399. 399 T_S_O_P said at 2:50 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Love me some #87

  400. 400 Ryan Rambo said at 2:50 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Peters is back. For now.

  401. 401 A_T_G said at 2:50 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    JP is back.

  402. 402 A_T_G said at 2:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    …sorta.

  403. 403 T_S_O_P said at 2:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Pinkston sighting

  404. 404 A_T_G said at 2:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    So, I was watching on my phone at a Scout event. Is Darby’s ankle as bad as it looked?

  405. 405 FairOaks said at 2:53 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    No official info yet, but carted off and won’t return.

  406. 406 Ryan Rambo said at 2:53 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’m praying for a break at this point man.

  407. 407 Checkdown Charlie said at 2:53 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    havent said

  408. 408 T_S_O_P said at 2:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Looked broken or dislocated. Either way, it the accompanying ligament damage.

  409. 409 A_T_G said at 2:57 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I tried to tell myself maybe his shoe was just twisted sideways and not the foot inside…

  410. 410 shah8 said at 2:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    best pass of the day from Wentz

  411. 411 FairOaks said at 2:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wentz has definitely learned how to slide.

  412. 412 T_S_O_P said at 2:57 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Good recovery from missed XP by Caleb

  413. 413 SteveH said at 2:58 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Alshon dropping that pass was discouraging. Dude is supposed to be a machine.

  414. 414 Crus57 said at 2:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    You have to think that the fact he’s only on a one year deal will be in the back of his head, if he gets injured he’s in trouble for the forseeable future.

  415. 415 SteveH said at 3:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    IDK man I think he just dropped it.

  416. 416 SteveH said at 2:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wow Jacksonville is blowing out Houston lol.

  417. 417 A_T_G said at 3:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Dude, phrasing?

    Hurricanes?

  418. 418 FairOaks said at 3:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Houston put in Watson at halftime, and he just got a TD. 19-7 now, looks like.

  419. 419 Ark87 said at 2:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That drive was looking good. Didn’t like that 3rd down call. But I guess it was safeish?

  420. 420 SteveH said at 3:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    3rd/12 tough to convert on regular plays, try a little misdirection to get it, just Norman made a great read.

  421. 421 SeanofDead said at 3:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Breeland is stupid

  422. 422 A_T_G said at 3:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Clement with a nice tackle on the kickoff.

  423. 423 meteorologist said at 3:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Another one? Wow

  424. 424 T_S_O_P said at 3:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Timmy J beasting

  425. 425 SteveH said at 3:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Oooooo Jernigan with the huge hit.

  426. 426 FairOaks said at 3:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Jernigan sighting. That was a nice finish.

  427. 427 Spooonius said at 3:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He got there fast and had a nice burst at the end

  428. 428 SteveH said at 3:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    D has only given up 7 points so far, they’re doing their part… If it weren’t for that tipped pass this would be a whole different game.

    omggg holding, fucks sake.

  430. 430 T_S_O_P said at 3:02 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Saint and sinner from the LBs

  431. 431 FairOaks said at 3:03 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Tough holding call, as Cousins was in trouble and not looking that way. But did hold Reed.

  432. 432 Spooonius said at 3:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He got out of position and had to hold. The TE got by him

  433. 433 SeanofDead said at 3:03 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Violent run by Kelly there…respect

  434. 434 Ark87 said at 3:03 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Great second effort frim Hicks, for naught

  435. 435 T_S_O_P said at 3:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Second team DL

  436. 436 SteveH said at 3:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    damnit we were off the field, and Bradham holds… Jesus.

  437. 437 A_T_G said at 3:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Let’s go defense. Tighten it up.

  438. 438 SteveH said at 3:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Robinson actually good coverage there.

  439. 439 Spooonius said at 3:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I wish the D would show Cousins why quarterbacks slide

  440. 440 xeynon said at 3:09 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Right?

    I wonder if Washington has decided since he won’t sign a long term deal they’re not going to be overly concerned about his health and dial up the read option plays.

  441. 441 SeanofDead said at 3:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Robinson right there

  442. 442 xeynon said at 3:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Don’t like like our defense giving them cheap yards with penalties.

  443. 443 A_T_G said at 3:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That deep ball was 5 yards past everyone, yet Robinson stopped to look at it when it was thrown. He makes me nervous.

  444. 444 meteorologist said at 3:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He makes me nervous too but I thought he played it perfectly

  445. 445 SeanofDead said at 3:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    need the 3rd down stop here boys

  446. 446 T_S_O_P said at 3:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Come on D

  447. 447 SteveH said at 3:09 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    omg, WOW, Chris Long misses the sack unblocked. Unreal.

  448. 448 Spooonius said at 3:09 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That looked awful

  449. 449 Checkdown Charlie said at 3:09 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Damnn It
    Almost had him

  450. 450 FairOaks said at 3:09 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Chris Long unblocked and missed the tackle.

  451. 451 SteveH said at 3:09 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    What a savvy veteran play by Chris Long there. *wanking motion*

  452. 452 T_S_O_P said at 3:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Kick Cousins asking for a flag literally equals *wanking motion*

  453. 453 xeynon said at 3:10 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Chris Long clearly gets his pass rushing ability from his mom.

  454. 454 T_S_O_P said at 3:11 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    LOL. Was she also a Villanova alumni.

  455. 455 SeanofDead said at 3:10 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    lets go Schwarz…show me something

  456. 456 SteveH said at 3:11 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It’s not Schwartz’s fault that Long literally can’t bring down Kirk Cousins of all people while unblocked off the edge. What a load of crap. Game losing type plays.

  457. 457 A_T_G said at 3:10 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It is smart how we are just letting them march down the field. We are bad at 3rd and long.

  458. 458 Ark87 said at 3:11 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    This drive man. We look good, then miss the lay up

  459. 459 xeynon said at 3:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Very frustrating drive. There are multiple occasions on which we should have killed it.

  460. 460 SteveH said at 3:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    How are we going to fuck up this 3rd and long.

  461. 461 Spooonius said at 3:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Interception?

  462. 462 SteveH said at 3:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Im thinking Kirk Cousins stiff arms Fletcher Cox to the ground while Mills trips over his shoelaces and a TD toss to a wide open 4th string TE.

  463. 463 A_T_G said at 3:14 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    If that happens you are getting blocked.

  464. 464 SteveH said at 3:14 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    If that happens I’m just going to show myself out. It would mean I’m a witch.

  465. 465 A_T_G said at 3:15 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    You’re lucky.

  466. 466 SteveH said at 3:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Or unlucky, being a witch might be cool.

  467. 467 Crus57 said at 3:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wish the playclock would go below 0 so we can see exactly how long some teams get before delay is called

  468. 468 SteveH said at 3:14 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I wish they’d review the playclock situation where it doesn’t get reset like on our delay of game. Would be useful to know if it was a legit flag or a bullshit situation.

  469. 469 Tumtum said at 3:14 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Would be too much embarassment for refs that don’t look at the clock.

  470. 470 xeynon said at 3:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    There’s no reason it should even have to be something the refs keep track of. Just set up an automated whistle that blows as soon as it hits zero.

  471. 471 Ark87 said at 3:15 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    The thing should go off with a buzzer like in basketball

  472. 472 Ark87 said at 3:14 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    The play clock on the broadcast has been janky all game

  473. 473 T_S_O_P said at 3:15 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Janky?

  474. 474 T_S_O_P said at 3:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Local speak?

  475. 475 Ark87 said at 3:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Buggy

  476. 476 T_S_O_P said at 4:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That is nearly as alien πŸ™‚

  477. 477 Ark87 said at 5:19 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Lol, I’ll just describe it, play clock was counting down 2 seconds at a time, then going back a second all game long, like 30,28,29,27,28, etc

  478. 478 Tumtum said at 3:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    U never heard that one?

  479. 479 T_S_O_P said at 4:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Not in Blighty

  480. 480 Tumtum said at 3:15 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Saddest part is that clock is a legit feed from game clock. That is what everyone is seeing.

  481. 481 SteveH said at 3:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Well thank god our mistakes only cost us 3 instead of 7. That would have been backbreaking.

  482. 482 T_S_O_P said at 3:17 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    6 from Wendell would be nice

  483. 483 xeynon said at 3:20 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Would you take an awkward five yard return from Celek?

  484. 484 Spooonius said at 3:17 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    There is something disturbingly satisfying about that FG.

  485. 485 Tumtum said at 3:17 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    We held and lead? Satisfying as hell.

  486. 486 Spooonius said at 3:18 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    True. The drive was so long and frustrating though.

  487. 487 xeynon said at 3:18 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    With all that went wrong on that drive I was expecting the dagger TD on 3rd and long. Holding them to 3 feels like a decent outcome.

  488. 488 Checkdown Charlie said at 3:17 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I figured Jax to be bad this year. Just shows pre season means nothing

  489. 489 Spooonius said at 3:17 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    You and everyone else

  490. 490 Tumtum said at 3:18 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Don’t be foolwd by week 1 playing a team that hasnt been home in over a week! Not to mentiom Watson came right in and got TD

  491. 491 SteveH said at 3:18 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Somehow Nelson Agholor is my highest scoring fanduel player. And I have shady, Devonta Freeman and Antonio Brown. O.o.

  492. 492 T_S_O_P said at 3:19 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Just how many KRs has the longest tenured Eagle made in his career?

  493. 493 Spooonius said at 3:19 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Ha! There was a lot of foot movement to get 1 yard.

  494. 494 ConcussedFB said at 3:20 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He was pulling a plow.

  495. 495 SteveH said at 3:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    goddamnit, another promising drive killed.

  496. 496 scratcherk said at 3:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    so the refs do call IG?

  497. 497 Checkdown Charlie said at 3:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    sometimes yo have to throw it away sooner

  498. 498 A_T_G said at 3:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That is the price you pay for the magic where he ducks Clay Mathews and throws a TD.

  499. 499 Checkdown Charlie said at 3:24 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    amen

  500. 500 Crus57 said at 3:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Homefield Advantage, that’s a 10yd penalty and loss of down

  501. 501 SteveH said at 3:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    holy shit its jim tomsula.

  502. 502 xeynon said at 3:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Demoted from HC to D line coach.. not even coordinator. Ouch.

  503. 503 xeynon said at 3:21 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Ertz appears to be bringing his December game right from the start this year. That’s a good sign.

  504. 504 Checkdown Charlie said at 3:22 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    wasnt he hurt half the year last year

  505. 505 Spooonius said at 3:22 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I truly do not understand how grounding is called. What about Smith
    ??????

  506. 506 Tumtum said at 3:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Didnt make it to line.

  507. 507 Tumtum said at 3:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Home cookin has to be yummy. Blantant IG ignored for home team. Close one on us is called.

  508. 508 SeanofDead said at 3:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I guess they don’t call contact after 5…

  509. 509 SteveH said at 3:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    There’s way too much pressure today… Jeffrey almost earned his paycheck on that catch.

  510. 510 Spooonius said at 3:24 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Almost. He still gets the money though.

  511. 511 SteveH said at 3:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Haha, well its game 1, lets not throw him in the dumpster yet.

  512. 512 Spooonius said at 3:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I know. I can feel my inner negadelphian getting stronger

  513. 513 Spooonius said at 3:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Isn’t that why we have Alshon? To catch balls like that?

  514. 514 T_S_O_P said at 3:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Alshon coming close. But you get nothing for close

  515. 515 SteveH said at 3:24 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    All things considered I think the Darby injury is the big downer, but the OL play is super discouraging too.

  516. 516 Ryan Rambo said at 3:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Just scrubbing the internet for any news on Darby. Didn’t come up with much, but here is an interesting article…..http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/profootballdoc/sd-sp-pfd-darby-ankle-eagles-0910-story.html

  517. 517 meteorologist said at 3:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    This guy is a great resource. Good find

  518. 518 xeynon said at 3:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Wentz has a tendency to scramble forward toward the line rather than backwards when he’s under pressure. Gets him in trouble when the pocket is collapsing but at least he doesn’t have Nick Foles disease.

  519. 519 Tumtum said at 3:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Stepping up is what good QBs do. Back peddling gets you cut like McGloin.

  520. 520 xeynon said at 3:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yep. Now let’s just start blocking someone so he doesn’t have to do it.

  521. 521 Ark87 said at 3:25 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Damn, the version of him making those tough jump balls changes this team, he’s been disappointing in the tough catch department so far

  522. 522 SteveH said at 3:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    the fuck was that Joe Walker. Jesus christ.

  523. 523 Ryan Rambo said at 3:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Hey…let’s just hand em’ a free FIFTEEN smh.

  524. 524 Ryan Rambo said at 3:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Great play Joe. SMH

  525. 525 A_T_G said at 3:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Dumb penalty, (almost) rookie.

  526. 526 SeanofDead said at 3:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    come on Dline…need you to show up here

  527. 527 SteveH said at 3:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    This has all the hallmarks of a crushing Eagles loss, dumb penalties, dumb plays, dumb mistakes.

  528. 528 Spooonius said at 3:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’m starting to mentally prepare for it

  529. 529 scratcherk said at 3:27 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    all kinds of stupid

  530. 530 xeynon said at 3:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Joe Walker is not good enough to get away with even the occasional dumb penalty.

  531. 531 T_S_O_P said at 3:29 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Good save from Jaylen

  532. 532 CTbirdsguy said at 3:29 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    play action from under center looks so nice…

  533. 533 SteveH said at 3:30 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Ronald Darby injury domino effect, Jaylen Watkins covering Terelle Pryor.

  534. 534 xeynon said at 3:30 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Name I have not heard even once today: Derek Barnett.

    #thatbendtho

  536. 536 SteveH said at 3:31 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Man that is way down on my list of complaints for today, that a rookie isn’t making plays in his first NFL game. I mean shit, did you see that missed sack by Chris Long?

  537. 537 T_S_O_P said at 3:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He platoons in with the entire second team DL. Not necessarily the most prosperous conditions

  538. 538 xeynon said at 3:34 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’m definitely not giving up on him. I still like the decision to pick him. Just would love to see him assert himself.

  539. 539 SteveH said at 3:31 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Thank goodness.

  549. 549 xeynon said at 3:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I must say, I enjoy Kirk Cousins face almost as much as Eli Manning face.

  550. 550 T_S_O_P said at 3:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Stealing 7, tastes so good

  551. 551 scratcherk said at 3:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    can we run the clock and get pts?

  552. 552 SeanofDead said at 3:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Jeffery and Smith 2 rec for 44 yds on 7 targets…..need better production

  553. 553 T_S_O_P said at 3:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Contested balls to Alshon and under thrown deeps to Smith

  554. 554 T_S_O_P said at 3:37 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Or overthrown!!!!!!

  555. 555 xeynon said at 3:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Not great. Agholor and Ertz making them pay though.

  556. 556 Tumtum said at 3:34 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Oh no. Mills is growing a rat tail. Pls no!

  557. 557 A_T_G said at 3:35 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    If it helps with the ball skills, I’ll take it.

  558. 558 xeynon said at 3:37 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’d prefer it add two tenths of a second to his 40 time.

  559. 559 scratcherk said at 3:35 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    looks more like rabbit puff

  560. 560 Ark87 said at 3:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

  561. 561 ACViking said at 3:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Sproles in on 1st down and runs the ball.

    Smallwood in on 3rd and catches.

    ???

  562. 562 Tumtum said at 3:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Blount in the game?? 9 in the box! Why not check??

  563. 563 A_T_G said at 3:36 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    “When-DELL Smallwood”

    Is that right? Not WHEN-doll?

  564. 564 Tumtum said at 3:37 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah think so.

  565. 565 FairOaks said at 3:37 PM on September 10th, 2017:

  574. 574 xeynon said at 3:40 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He has what you call the “it factor” if it’s your QB and the “oh shit!” factor if it’s the other team’s QB. Every play, even the busted ones, is a potential big play.

  575. 575 FairOaks said at 3:39 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Smallwood with a couple yards out of nothing there

  576. 576 FairOaks said at 3:39 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    … then loses a couple on the next one.

  577. 577 SteveH said at 3:39 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Improv Wentz can be so beastly.

  578. 578 CTbirdsguy said at 3:39 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    breeland got hit in the head and went off. want a big play

  579. 579 CTbirdsguy said at 3:39 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    nope, they run it. backup CB still out there. best spot on the field to take a shot

  580. 580 SteveH said at 3:39 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That 2nd down run was so ugly. No push at all.

  581. 581 T_S_O_P said at 3:40 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Smallwood < Blount today

  582. 582 FairOaks said at 3:40 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    3rd and 9 and we try the quick-out !?!?!!?!?!

    A block by Jeffery may have made that work, but… he didn’t.

  583. 583 SteveH said at 3:41 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah, good execution and he’s off the races.

  584. 584 Insomniac said at 3:41 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    2/2 for bad effort in blocking by the FA WRs so far.

  585. 585 meteorologist said at 3:41 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    A block by Jeffery or Torrey would have been nice

  586. 586 A_T_G said at 3:41 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Our OL is not winning the LOS.

  587. 587 T_S_O_P said at 3:41 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Jaylen again

  588. 588 Ryan Rambo said at 3:41 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Some of these calls on offense are offensive.

  589. 589 ACViking said at 3:42 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    B-I-N-G-O.

    And they don’t play to Wentz’s strength (i.e., not throwing laterally)

  590. 590 Insomniac said at 3:43 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Beat them laterally if you can’t beat them vertically. Doesn’t sound bad on paper but it sure as hell is ugly to watch.

  591. 591 T_S_O_P said at 3:46 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    There is no point to and Andy prodigy without an accompanying Brad disciple

  592. 592 Ryan Rambo said at 3:41 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Our DEFENSE wins this one for us here. LET’S GO BIRDGANG!!!

  593. 593 Ark87 said at 3:42 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Just can’t sustain drives on 3rd and long over and over

  594. 594 scratcherk said at 3:42 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    safety plz

  595. 595 SeanofDead said at 3:43 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Awesome run blocking

  598. 598 T_S_O_P said at 3:44 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Jaylen gaming

  599. 599 scratcherk said at 3:44 PM on September 10th, 2017:

  600. 600 Spooonius said at 3:44 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    The jaylens are killing it

  601. 601 SeanofDead said at 3:45 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Nice hit by Watkins…whom I thought had no shot making the roster

  602. 602 Insomniac said at 3:47 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He wasn’t bad as a CB, he’s just not very good as a safety.

  603. 603 Spooonius said at 3:48 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Not just you. I would love to be wrong

  604. 604 scratcherk said at 3:45 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    gruden stole andys playbook for that drive

  605. 605 Spooonius said at 3:45 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    PI there should be a safety

  606. 606 Insomniac said at 3:46 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Jaylen Watkins trying to usurp (insert random CBs) job

  607. 607 scratcherk said at 3:46 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    well if hes better there than safety, great

  608. 608 scratcherk said at 3:46 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    put game away now

  609. 609 Checkdown Charlie said at 3:46 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Need to get 7 here

  610. 610 A_T_G said at 3:47 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I want a long methodical running drive, but I don’t know if the OL can open holes.

  611. 611 xeynon said at 3:48 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah, grind clock and then score the killer TD.

  612. 612 Ark87 said at 3:47 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Thank god it isn’t just us who throw over and over at bad times

  613. 613 Ryan Rambo said at 3:48 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Stop that bullshit screen call.

  614. 614 FairOaks said at 3:49 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Eagles determined to make the quick-out work. 0 yards on that one, which may tie for best.

  615. 615 teltschikfakeout88 said at 3:49 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    These play calls are terrible

  616. 616 T_S_O_P said at 3:49 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’m envying Kendal Fuller. Beast Alshon

  617. 617 scratcherk said at 3:49 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    vaitai on kerrigan nice

  618. 618 scratcherk said at 3:50 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    so many foot tackles on blount, so lucky

  619. 619 Spooonius said at 3:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah,hopefully he breaks one

  620. 620 Tumtum said at 3:50 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Shoes strings are Blount’s achillies heel. Ia that bad?

  621. 621 A_T_G said at 3:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Just so his Achilles isn’t a shoestring.

  622. 622 scratcherk said at 3:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    velcro FTW

  623. 623 Allen3000 said at 3:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Have we had a run over 7 yards today? OL is weak at run blocking.

  624. 624 Checkdown Charlie said at 3:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    No FG

  625. 625 xeynon said at 3:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    This is why we got Blount.

  626. 626 ACViking said at 3:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Was there ever an update on Darby?

  627. 627 Tumtum said at 3:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    His ankle was prettt clearly dislocated. Won’t be good. Haven’t heard on though.

  628. 628 A_T_G said at 3:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Go for it.

  629. 629 SeanofDead said at 3:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    hhmmmmm….do it

  630. 630 scratcherk said at 3:51 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    plz dont go for it

  631. 631 T_S_O_P said at 3:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    You’ve been heard

  632. 632 SeanofDead said at 3:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    ummm…why the to

  633. 633 CTbirdsguy said at 3:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    ugh

  634. 634 A_T_G said at 3:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Was there not time to wait for the two minute warning?

  635. 635 scratcherk said at 3:54 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    wont matter with kickoff except maybe the 2 secs

  636. 636 xeynon said at 3:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Unless it’s a touchback.

  637. 637 A_T_G said at 3:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Unless it’s a touchback, right?

  638. 638 scratcherk said at 3:56 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    yep. whoops

  639. 639 A_T_G said at 3:56 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Nevermind, XP is timed, I guess.

  640. 640 meteorologist said at 3:54 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    No way. That’s an epic blunder if so

  641. 641 Spooonius said at 3:53 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I was very nervous. I’m waiting till after the play to decide whether they should go for it or not

  642. 642 SeanofDead said at 3:53 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    there was 5 seconds
    idiotic time management there

  643. 643 scratcherk said at 3:54 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    was wondering abt play clock, wont matter cuz kickoff will go to 2 minute warning

  644. 644 Allen3000 said at 3:53 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    How many secs were onthe play clock?

  645. 645 teltschikfakeout88 said at 3:54 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah… we are up by 5 and now have to give the ball back to Cousins who has killed us in the past in the minute drill…

  646. 646 xeynon said at 3:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Defense is playing better today than it has in the past. Pressuring him and has forced him into two turnovers.

  647. 647 SeanofDead said at 3:54 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I don’t understand that shit man, I hate to play captain hindsight but why…why call a timeout there, its unexcusable

  648. 648 SteveH said at 3:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Low situational awareness… At the very least it doesn’t hurt us much, past the 2 minute warning anyhow, it only is 2 seconds worth of difference.

  649. 649 SeanofDead said at 3:56 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    We may very well need that Timeout tho

  650. 650 Steve Ebersole said at 3:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    if the Eagles end up losing this game how many times do you think we’re going to hear about not going for it on 4th down there?

  651. 651 scratcherk said at 3:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    100% the right call

  652. 652 SteveH said at 3:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah that was the right call, make it a TD game not a FG game.

  653. 653 meteorologist said at 3:56 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    You go for it there 100% unless your offensive line is getting demolished

  654. 654 Insomniac said at 3:56 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It’s going to happen regardless. The media loves to criticize every move.

  655. 655 xeynon said at 3:58 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    You kick the FG there. Win probability is higher if WAS needs 7 and not just 3.

  656. 656 Steve Ebersole said at 1:07 PM on September 11th, 2017:

    Oh, I completely agree it was 100% the right call. But I’m just saying that Pederson would have gotten unfairly roasted for not being aggressive after getting roasted for being aggressive last year. Luckily it did not matter and we won

  657. 657 xmbk said at 3:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Did not like the spot there. Should have challenged rather than use TO.

  658. 658 scratcherk said at 3:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    good thought

  659. 659 Spooonius said at 3:56 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It was definitely questionable

  660. 660 Tumtum said at 3:56 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    CUT THAT MEAT CUT THAT MEAT!

    watch them convert the next play for a big gain

  680. 680 SeanofDead said at 3:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    his hand was but not the ball….almost looks like ball was out before contact

  681. 681 SteveH said at 3:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Graham hits his arm… question is does the ball come out before or after it starts coming forward.

  682. 682 Insomniac said at 3:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It was going forward. You can see the release of the ball.

  683. 683 T_S_O_P said at 3:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It is out, but will be overturned

  684. 684 SteveH said at 3:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    HOLY SHIT TD! FUCKING YEAH ALRIGHT!!!!!!!!

  685. 685 SeanofDead said at 3:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Thank god the refs blew it in our favor

  695. 695 Insomniac said at 4:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Well I’m glad I was wrong.

  696. 696 FairOaks said at 4:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I don’t think you were. But maybe just enough not-good angle on the replay to make it not obvious.

  697. 697 scratcherk said at 4:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I think it was the left arm of graham that hit the arm that might have caused the doubt

  698. 698 meteorologist said at 4:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Maybe. Didn’t see

  699. 699 SteveH said at 4:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah he definitely hit Cousins arm at some point, it’s just when.

  700. 700 Tumtum said at 4:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Ok next week. MuST WIN!

  701. 701 Insomniac said at 4:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’m actually scared of the Chiefs next week just solely based on what we saw so far.

  707. 707 Crus57 said at 4:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    that would come in handy to go towards replacing my tv in that situation

  708. 708 Ark87 said at 4:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Looked like an incomplete pass to me, but maybe this was the classic “no indisputable evidence” case.

    In any event, BIG COX IN YOUR FACE!!!

  715. 715 xmbk said at 4:03 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I think he lost the ball trying to pull it back.

  716. 716 Allen3000 said at 4:02 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Why did we go for 2 there? Not going to complain, but just an odd call.

  717. 717 scratcherk said at 4:02 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    2 score lead

  718. 718 FairOaks said at 4:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It was already an 11 point lead. I guess the chart says go since a TD and two FGs will just tie instead of win, but … a bit silly really. Maybe they just wanted to practice the 2-point play at a point where it didn’t matter.

  719. 719 Allen3000 said at 4:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    2 scores= 14

    We have a 13 point lead. We don’t convert and we’re stuck with an 11 point lead which is way worse than 12 points.

  720. 720 xeynon said at 4:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    They already had a two score lead. Missing that makes it possible for WAS to tie with TD + 2 pt conversion + FG. Was a questionable call.

  721. 721 xmbk said at 4:03 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Must be numbers somewhere to support it, but I’d want to go up 12. TD and FG can net 11.

  722. 722 Tumtum said at 4:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah, chart says do it. Inconsequential due to time.

  723. 723 FairOaks said at 4:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Right but extra point would be 12.

  724. 724 xmbk said at 4:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Right, should kick.

  725. 725 A_T_G said at 4:03 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    If they ore a TD, then we score a TD and go for 2 again, they would need a second TD to tie… all in 90 seconds

  726. 726 Tumtum said at 4:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Think its more they could only tie with TD FG FG…in 1 min

  727. 727 xmbk said at 4:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Worrying about 3 scores is ridiculous. That’s why human beings need to interpret data, not be slaves to it.

  728. 728 Insomniac said at 4:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    2 score lead and less chance of time management errors.

  729. 729 xmbk said at 4:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Kicking gives 2 score lead.

  730. 730 Allen3000 said at 4:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Right. How is this point lost on so many ppl??

  731. 731 Insomniac said at 4:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He was being safe by being dangerous.

  732. 732 Ark87 said at 4:02 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    There’s the ridiculously big body, when it doesn’t matter

  733. 733 SeanofDead said at 4:03 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Id like to see a shot of Snyder seething right now

  734. 734 SteveH said at 4:03 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Only thing I can thinks is they must have thought Graham hit Kirk’s arm before it started going forward. It does look like the ball isn’t in his hand on that one angle.

  735. 735 T_S_O_P said at 4:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I think Cousins fumbled before Graham hit his arm. Spooked

  736. 736 Spooonius said at 4:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Me too

  737. 737 Duracell said at 4:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I would have overturned that, and I’m annoyed that Washington fans now have a built in excuse, but woohoo!

    Also really sad to see all the negative comments on both here and BGN (ugh, what did I expect). Not sure where all the negativity was coming from. We’re about to win a road game against a division rival.

  738. 738 Tumtum said at 4:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    And you have a built-in retort. SCOREBOARD

  739. 739 A_T_G said at 4:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Okay, just no garbage points for crowder, my personal opponent today.

  740. 740 SteveH said at 4:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    So we got a Graham sack/FF and a Cox sack/FF, nice to see the stars showing up.

  741. 741 xeynon said at 4:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Let’s pad the stats with a few more sacks followed by another turnover here.

  742. 742 SteveH said at 4:05 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Woo Graham going towards that paycheck.

  743. 743 SeanofDead said at 4:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Damn GREAT to have football back…That was a lot of fun!!!!

  744. 744 scratcherk said at 4:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Someone get BG a smoothie

  745. 745 scratcherk said at 4:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    thats a fumble

  746. 746 FairOaks said at 4:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Make-up call πŸ˜‰

  747. 747 scratcherk said at 4:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    ill take it

  748. 748 A_T_G said at 4:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    This made me laugh.

  749. 749 shah8 said at 4:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Good game. At least Wentz settled down and became more accurate as the game went on…

  750. 750 xeynon said at 4:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yeah he wasn’t perfect by any means, but he made some very good throws and a couple of “wow” plays.

  751. 751 Tumtum said at 4:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Ok good get me some crowder and thompson trash time!!

  752. 752 Insomniac said at 4:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    BG already on track to have like half his career sack totals.

  753. 753 daveH said at 4:48 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yes her really is a wonderful player for us and impressive coming thru all that early setbacks

  754. 754 SteveH said at 4:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    D only gave up 10 points today. Good showing.

  755. 755 Tumtum said at 4:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    All things considered…amazing d today

  756. 756 Insomniac said at 4:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’m amazed at how the Jaylens played. Totally expected them to be burnt toast against Pryor, Crowder, and Doctson.

  757. 757 T_S_O_P said at 4:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Let’s see where we are with #71 and #41

  758. 758 Tumtum said at 4:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    41 we hope can make it back to 100% next year

  759. 759 xeynon said at 4:10 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Let’s hope it wasn’t as bad as it looked, because it looked ugly.

    On the plus side, we didn’t miss a beat defensively without him.

  760. 760 A_T_G said at 4:11 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    We held on, but the pass defense suffered.

  761. 761 xeynon said at 4:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Some of that was Cousins getting warmed up. He missed some open receivers early on when Darby was still in there.

  762. 762 A_T_G said at 4:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Could be, I was following on my phone early. Until that injury and the pick-6, though, both units appeared dominant.

  763. 763 FairOaks said at 4:55 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    He missed some open WRs late too. The biggest was overthrowing an open WR at the 5 yard line and finding Mills instead.

  764. 764 Duracell said at 4:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I’d need someone watching the tape like Tommy to confirm how good the corners actually played, but from watching live it was more promising than I could have imagined once Darby went out.

  765. 765 xeynon said at 4:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    When was the last time we sacked Kirk Coupons 4 times in a game?

  766. 766 CrackSammich said at 4:56 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Kurt

  767. 767 Spooonius said at 4:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Ertz and Ags big today!

  768. 768 T_S_O_P said at 4:10 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Jaylen Watkins impressive too

  769. 769 A_T_G said at 4:09 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Dumping the Gatorade after a week 1 win might be the wrong attitude.

  770. 770 Insomniac said at 4:11 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Anonymous Eagles players set up scheme to dump Gatorade on Pederson every week, hopes to discourage him and let Schwartz be the HC – McLane

  771. 771 Ark87 said at 4:13 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Cringey

  772. 772 T_S_O_P said at 4:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Seriously! Beating the Deadskins, regardless of venue, is setting the bar low

  773. 773 Corry said at 4:23 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    yeah….

  774. 774 daveH said at 4:46 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Dumpin it on that monkey

  775. 775 SteveH said at 4:10 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Thank god I started Houston D against Jacksonville. They finished with a solid 0.

  776. 776 xeynon said at 4:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I played in a fantasy league a few years ago where the guy who won the championship didn’t have a set defense/ST and just picked up and played whoever was playing the Jaguars that week. It won him a couple games singlehandedly and we joked that Blake Bortles should’ve been the first unrostered MVP in fantasy football history.

  777. 777 xeynon said at 4:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Carson Palmer is burned toast. Arizona is going to be terrible this year.

  778. 778 Ark87 said at 4:12 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Good game by the D-line, got the better of a good O-line, D should have a good year, hopefully Darby can make it back this year

  779. 779 Crus57 said at 4:15 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Thing I worry about now is if Darby is done for the year or even significant time (which looks very likely) then I hope they don’t try and bring back Sidney Jones too soon into the IR break.

  780. 780 Allen3000 said at 4:16 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Solid game. Definitely some things to work on, but definitely a lot of bright spots to build upon.

  781. 781 Corry said at 4:18 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    So always good to see the Birds win. Losing Darby is going to hurt, but the defensive line is going to make life tough for opposing QBs. I’m very happy with the win!

    That said, can we never do the wide receiver plays ever again?

  782. 782 Sean Stott said at 4:18 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Hopefully Darby can come back after a couple months

  783. 783 Ark87 said at 4:31 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    God Seattle’s O-line is brutal

  784. 784 Dragon_Eagle said at 4:42 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Just left Portland, OR bar where I watched the game with a Portland Eagles fan base. Good time/people. Sound sucked.

    What is the status of our injuries? Peters, Darby?

  785. 785 A_T_G said at 4:45 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Peters was “back” and had all his gear, but was coaching Vaitai, so he is probably day to day. No word on Darby, but it has to be bad.

  786. 786 Dragon_Eagle said at 4:48 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Thanks for the update. Darby’s looked awful. If he’s back this season I’ll be shocked.

  787. 787 A_T_G said at 4:48 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Yup.

  788. 788 Tumtum said at 5:01 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    We could totally luck out and it was some sort of crazy cramp. I didn’t see anything that should of dislocated it.

  789. 789 daveH said at 5:04 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    It rolled on him and stayed locked .. yuck. Hoping for the best

  790. 790 BobSmith77 said at 5:17 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Peters has a groin pull and it sounds like a near certainty he will miss at least next week and possibly more.

    No word on Darby and Sturgis will be evaluated with a likely hamstring injury.

    Kind of a costly victory.

  791. 791 daveH said at 4:43 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    German. .HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT GIRLS SOCCER SEASON AHEAD !!

  792. 792 A_T_G said at 4:44 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I have NE defense. Oddly enough, the Eagles defense got me more points. NE earned me a whopping 0.5 points, while the Eagles held Crowder to negative 1.15 points.

  793. 793 Tumtum said at 5:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I have Crowder…and the eagles d and ertz and ags …i play to many ffb leagues.

  794. 794 Dave said at 4:53 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Just got back from the day golfing in the Poconos. I read the highlights, now I’m just firing up the DVR to watch the game. Although I’m happy with the win, I’m bummed about Darby.

  795. 795 Tumtum said at 4:59 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    On the opener dude?!

  796. 796 Dave said at 5:07 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I play every third week in a traveling league. Not gonna pass up a 70-degree day in the mountains with lots of beer;-)

  797. 797 Tumtum said at 6:06 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I wouldn’t have either tbh. Just giving you a hard time.

  798. 798 daveH said at 5:00 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I like the way we filled in for him and played and stayed very competitive

  799. 799 Dave said at 5:08 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    How was the offensive line?

  800. 800 BobSmith77 said at 5:15 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Better in the 2nd half even without Peters but they still struggled all day.

  801. 801 daveH said at 6:52 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    More to worry about than to be confidant about

  804. 804 Ark87 said at 5:22 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Special teams or defense will need to score points when we play Seattle. Defense is as billed. But their offense is brutal. Particularly the O-line

  805. 805 BobSmith77 said at 5:24 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    – Couple thoughts:

    1. Eagles got a huge break on that fumble TD call. It was a bad call Skins’ fans are livid about and rightfully so.

    2. I said I wanted Reed over Ertz. Good call. Didinger did say that Ertz was going to have a big day and he even predicted Ertz would break the single-season Eagles’ reception record (Westbrook with 90 in 2002).

    Ertz is off to a nice start. Wonder if becomes the security blanket that K. Jackson was to a young Cunningham and Lewis was for a young McNabb.

    3. Eagles have invested huge money in their DL and the Eagles collected the dividends today. Graham looked like he did last Sept and made Moses look bad all day. Played like a Top 5 DE end today.

    4. Both of these QBs were lousy today on deep throws badly throwing their targets.

    5. Skins constantly targeted Mills all day long. He made 2 plays I can recall but he is going to be a target that gets picked on weekly. Bradham got targeted a fair amount too.

  806. 806 Ark87 said at 5:32 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    I was feeling fairly confident before the botched call. There was a lot more pressure coming for him. We held up fine in garbage time. Notorious stat fluff time it is

  807. 807 FairOaks said at 5:26 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    https://twitter.com/RapSheet/status/906986086181851136

    Says Darby has dislocated ankle, X-Rays negative, will do MRI to check for ligament damage.

    Some speculation that if no ligament damage, it may be a mid-season return.

  808. 808 BobSmith77 said at 5:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Huge break if no soft tissue damage.

  809. 809 Crus57 said at 5:49 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    although, phrasing?

  810. 810 Ark87 said at 5:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    If everything works out, best case scenario 4-6 weeks?

  811. 811 SteveH said at 5:28 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Jesus Christ that would be a huge break for us if he didn’t have ligament damage.

  812. 812 Crus57 said at 5:49 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Don’t use the B word!

  813. 813 ChoTime said at 6:37 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    That would be a huge break for him if he did.

  814. 814 Dragon_Eagle said at 5:29 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Thank you for the update. Wishing Darby all the best.

  815. 815 BobSmith77 said at 5:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Pederson insists on running multiple WR screens and man I hate them with this offensive skill personnel.

    Unless one of the rookie WR is a good blocker, there isn’t a good-blocking WR on this team and I’m not a fan of using Agholor on those plays. Jeffrey and Smith are poor fits for any type of WR screen.

  816. 816 Dragon_Eagle said at 5:34 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Agreed. Wentz needs to work on those passes, though. He was brutal. that fumble-TD was entirely on him.

  817. 817 Ark87 said at 5:41 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Definitely he floats them and they go high. To do that play, you
    A) need to have someone absolutely dynamic catching it. All those plays exist to manufacture touches for an incredible WR

    B) GOT to get that ball out there fast with a quick release and velocity . Watching other teams run it, their guys really flick it out with some zip

  818. 818 Ark87 said at 5:35 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Bubble screens and variations of the jet sweep and the fakes on those then turning around to throw behind the line of scrimage on the other side, it all pissed me off

  819. 819 Patrick said at 5:38 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Overall, I’m not really that impressed with our offensive scheme. Seems pretty vanilla and basically just uses the same things a lot from different formation and with different personel.

    I had hoped Doug would have spent more time this off season, adjusting and perfecting his playbook. The comparison will obviously come up a lot, but Doug needs to show he can do what Reid did so well throughout his tenure with us, and now is doing in KC. Created a great offense there, basically twisting everything from the bottom up to fit their roster. Not really a knock on Doug as the HC, more a knock on Doug the effective OC.

  820. 820 Donald Kalinowski said at 5:33 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    This Seattle defense is so good

  821. 821 BobSmith77 said at 5:42 PM on September 10th, 2017:

    Interesting to see Schwartz no where near Pederson during the Gatorade bath or on the post-game congratulations on the field.

    McLane article already gotten beaten to death but it will be interesting to watch Schwartz this year including his comments after games.
