Gameday – PHI at CAR

Posted: October 12th, 2017 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 1,373 Comments »

Are you ready for some Thursday Night Football?

Thursday Night games are the worst, but all teams have to play them so you just deal with it as best you can. The Eagles do have some good news.

You need all hands on deck when going against Cam Newton so it is great to see Fletcher Cox back in the lineup. He can push the pocket up the middle and help the DEs to collapse things from the outside.

Wendell Smallwood is out again. I hate that, but the Eagles managed without him last week.

It is interesting to see Justin Hamilton playing and Elijah Qualls inactive. Not a big deal, obviously.

*****

The key to the game on defense will be discipline. Carolina does a lot of creative things on offense. They have a brilliant dual-threat QB in Newton and all kinds of interesting weapons. Rookie Christian McCaffrey does just about everything. He is both a playmaker and a decoy. The Eagles can’t get caught up in motions and fakes. They have to be assignment-sound.

Playing the Chiefs in Week 2 was good practice for this game. They don’t do the same things exactly, but they are similar in how they like to confuse you. The Eagles played great defense in Kansas City for almost 3 full quarters before falling apart late.

The Panthers have some huge WRs so this is an ideal game for Rasul Douglas. Wouldn’t shock me to see him make a big play.

Carolina has an outstanding defense, led by MLB Luke Kuechly. They can rush with the front four and make plays with the back seven. It will be interesting to see how the Eagles play against such a stout D.

RT Lane Johnson is out and Big V is in at that spot. There is a drop-off with that, but it sounds like Stefen Wisniewski will be the LG for almost the entire game so the that helps the offense. Wiz has been clearly better than Chance Warmack this year.

The Panthers don’t have a stud CB and that could mean more throws for Alshon Jeffery. Remember that he’s faced some really tough CBs (Peterson, Hayward, Jenkins, Peters, Norman). Carson Wentz has done a good job of distributing the ball rather than forcing it so we’ll see if this makes any difference.

I think the Panthers have an advantage in playing on the short week because they’re at home and they do so much creative stuff on offense that you really need a full week to be ready for that. At the same time, I think the Eagles are the better team. They’ve been more consistent this year.

One thing to watch in this game is how it starts off. The Eagles have played with a lead for most of the past 3 games. The last game that they were even or behind was the loss to the Chiefs. Can the Eagles get off to another hot start and put the pressure on the Panthers?

I don’t have a good feel for this game because it just has an odd vibe to it. I am excited to see how the Eagles stack up against an NFC team with a 4-1 record. Plus, it’s a road game. Lots of little tests there.

Let’s see what the fellas can do…

  • A_T_G

    Nice! He didn’t carry you off to a creepy van after the picture, did he?

    • wee2424

      Lol you have to be a hot college female to earn that trip. I feel as though if that were to happen nowadays he would have been suspended for half the season.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Let us all take a moment. Please remember, in our hearts, the sad, suffering of others.

    “The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals’ 2-1 decision to vacate the preliminary injunction on Elliott’s suspension ends a bad week for the Cowboys, who have a bye. To review, they lost a heart-breaker to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers on Sunday; Jerry Jones publicly ordered his players to stand for the national anthem, prompting team meetings; defensive lineman Stephen Paea retired; the Cowboys cut Nolan Carroll; and the appeals court has now ruled against their star running.”

    And pray for more.

    • Fufina

      In a weird way this might help Zeke play out the year. He will appeal again, get a TRO on his suspension, and by the time a circuit court hears the case it will be pretty much the end of the season.

      They kicked out his case on a technicality – the fact he appealed before the arbitration had completed. in fact it wouldn’t shock me if this is what his legal team was looking for in the first place, since he has no realistic chance of winning the actual court case all he can achieve is delay delay delay.

  • A_T_G

    These are two very similar teams. Every time they talk about the Panthers strengths a weaknesses, they could be talking about us.

  • Will Ft. The Roots

    I dig the white on White. I wouldn’t mid that as our permanent away uni

    • Dragon_Eagle

      All blacks are the best.

      • Will Ft. The Roots

        I like both but I’m ok with Black being a twice a year thing.

  • Ark87

    Good to have all the pregame show guys pick Panthers. Little irrational nuggets like that give me comfort.

  • P_P_K

    “…it sounds like Stefen Wisniewski will be the LG for almost the entire game so the that helps the offense.”
    Did Doug say something? I hope so, especially with Lane out, the Oline needs to be at the top of its game.

  • Insomniac

    guys I have a bold prediction.

    one team will lose tonight.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      You could be wrong.

      • Fufina

        Yeah with new 10 minute OT i think we have to call the draw

      • Insomniac

        Tie myself up in a straight jacket if I am.

  • scratcherk

    Let it be known that I passed up going to the game to be here with you guys…

    • scratcherk

      or my wife said no…

      • A_T_G

        Let her think it was this one.

        We all know the truth.

        • scratcherk

          buddy had an extra ticket. but the home viewing experience is so great… and I have to work tomorrow. great stadium tho.

  • P_P_K

    Very cool.

  • meteorologist

    We get tony romo. What a treat!

    • scratcherk

      actually i really enjoy him

      • Ark87

        Good to have new voices in broadcasting imo

        • scratcherk

          way better than chris berman

      • meteorologist

        Yeah I was serious lol. Hard to convey

    • P_P_K

      This will be his first Eagles game. I wonder if there’s any hurt feelings?

      • Insomniac

        Jordan Hicks ptsd.

        • P_P_K

          Exactly!

      • meteorologist

    BLUNT OBJECT

  • CrackSammich

    Why was blount just barking orders to the line on that Ags catch?

  • scratcherk

    ugh.

  • scratcherk

  • Insomniac

    oh no

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Cmon Big V

  • scratcherk

    wentz held it a while tho.

    • Insomniac

      He got used to having Lane on his right side.

      • daveH

        Won’t be that trusting twice

        • daveH

          Oh craaaaaaaap

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Contain and spy!

  • Ark87

    God, so I guess Lane Johnson is our MVP

    • Dragon_Eagle

      He is.

  • scratcherk

    nice D

    • scratcherk

      TWSS

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Good stand by the defense.

  • CrackSammich

    unclinch those buttholes, boys. we doing this.

    • daveH

      Can’t unclnch quite yet.. .

  • A_T_G

    Nice play, Bradham.

    • daveH

      Two of em

  • scratcherk

    lets go booooyyys

  • Dragon_Eagle

    One of the few times I watch the game away from home where only my dog and wife have to tolerate my outbursts. Tonight, I’m at a bar by work. Game is on nearly all the TVs but few appear to be watching. Hope they’re the understanding type. I’m getting more beer.

  • scratcherk

    ags gonna ags.

  • CrackSammich

    And his hands are back.,

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Throw was off. That one was on Carson.

  • A_T_G

    Should catch that, but the throw left a little to be desired.

  • scratcherk

    lol at donnie jones pacing the sideline

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Please don’t abandon the run.

    • Insomniac

      I think Doug and Reich are seeing match ups that they like

  • scratcherk

    carson learning

  • scratcherk

    fuck

  • CrackSammich

    lol. wheels.

  • Insomniac

    I have never understood the love for Vaitai. The dude has nothing but a big body.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Crappy call.

  • scratcherk

    ARE U FUCKING KIDDING ME

  • A_T_G

    That was terrible.

  • A_T_G

    Johnson: two catches, two first downs. Throw more to him.

  • scratcherk

    blooouunt

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Please get the run game going, please Doug. with sugar on top.

    Thank you. (was typing that just before that last Blount run)

    • Insomniac

      Is one good enough for you?

      • Dragon_Eagle

        No

        • Insomniac

          You’re asking for too much

          • Dragon_Eagle

            Always

  • CrackSammich

    blount making career decisions

    • Iskar36

      That was a bit strange for Blount. I wonder if it had anything to do with havimg the ball in the wrong hand.

      • CrackSammich

        Eh, he wasn’t getting a touchdown. Just get out. That was the right move.

      • Insomniac

        He wasn’t running over 3 guys without higher momentum.

        • Iskar36

          Agreed it wasn’t a big deal. Just not the way I usually anticipate Blount ending that play. I have nothing against the decision though.

      • A Roy

        Franco Harris made a career doing that.

  • A_T_G

    Blount…steps out of bounds?

    That is not what he gets paid for.

  • meteorologist

    Good balance by Barner there. Eagles looking fantastic except Vaitai

    • CrackSammich

      yet they keep putting him on an island.

      • Insomniac

        Setting up the draw plays for later..

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Jake!!!!

    • A_T_G

      The dude is a machine.

      • Dragon_Eagle

        Greatest kicker ever.

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Jakester

  • scratcherk

    Jake the Make

    • Ark87

      Donnie J’owns

  • A_T_G

    You think Marvin Lewis is watching?

    • CrackSammich

      i dont think Lewis watches much football.

    • Insomniac

      Oh yea? He’s like 11/13 or some shit, just above-average – Marvin Lewis

  • CrackSammich

    Make Elliot

    • A Roy

      Well played.

  • br0ken

    Nice job Donnie Jones!!!

  • A_T_G

    I bet we have the Elliot with the most points in the NFCE.

  • scratcherk

    Didnt even realize we were in FG range

    • CrackSammich

      Are we on the field? Then we’re in Elliot’s range.

  • scratcherk

    Lets destroy this backup C

  • Ark87

    Doug may have been given an HC job before he earned it, but he’s grown into it nicely. He does very well with these early game scripts. Been impressed so far tonight

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Do like the call to go uptempo to start even if it didn’t end well.

  • CrackSammich

    Lol @ them saying Jordan Hicks is underrated to Romo.

    • CrackSammich

      He might have heard of him.

      • scratcherk

        pretty sure his shoulderblade is imprinted in his collarbone

  • Insomniac

    Jernigans grill always makes me smile for some reason.

  • scratcherk

    fuck off refs

  • A Roy

    BS

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Who paid the zebras? C’mon!!!!

  • scratcherk

    played the ball

    • daveH

      Homer view but hell yeah

      • scratcherk

        whats that?

  • Crus57

    I see we need to increase the amount we pay the refs this year

  • Insomniac

    Huh I almost forgot the Panthers drafted Curtis Samuel. I guess that’s just how impactful McCaffery and Samuel have been.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Refs 2 Eagles 0

  • A_T_G

    The defense has an edge to it tonight. Lots of big hits and telling them about it.

    • daveH

      Liking it

      • meteorologist

        Love it!

    • A Roy

      Hope they can sustain 4 qtrs.

    • Ark87

      Careful with the refs this year or they will start getting us with taunting everytime we get an edge

  • scratcherk

    bradizzle

  • daveH

    Bradham collecting highlights !!

    • scratcherk

      and umbrellas.

    • Insomniac

      I bet he reads Igglesblitz.

  • Ark87

    Great tackling as usual. Love that about this defense

  • scratcherk

    great run d

  • daveH

    LOVE THAT STOP

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Fipp magic.

  • CrackSammich

    if they declined that penalty against me, I’d go for it on 4th right here.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Thought they might.

    • Insomniac

      ok calm down dougie jr

    • scratcherk

      if they accepted that penalty, we would hear about it all week on sports radio

      • CrackSammich

        I wonder if they’ve done the math on accepting and declining
        penalties.

        • Dragon_Eagle

          I’d be absolutely stunned if it hasn’t been done. Seems obvious.

  • scratcherk

    Tres all

  • scratcherk

    those three points are on the refs for that BS PI call

  • CrackSammich

    BONGGG

    • scratcherk

      Laremy Tunsil just woke up

  • scratcherk

    Jeffrey getting involved

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Run the damn ball, Andy.

    • Insomniac

      I don’t think they trust the run with Vaitai in

      • Dragon_Eagle

        I don’t trust the protection.

  • scratcherk

    Right side issues

    • CrackSammich

      Blount.

    • GENETiC-FREAK

      Ertz didnt look. Blount got there too late.

      • CrackSammich

        It was Celek, and it looked like he passed it off

  • TO BLACKS

    U R A HOMO FAGGOT

  • scratcherk

    come on.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Refs 3 Eagles 0

  • CrackSammich

    Another weak one.

  • Checkdown Charlie

    another BS call

  • scratcherk

    if this one is on the eagles….

    • CrackSammich

      it was on the eagles.

  • CrackSammich

    fucking wow… swarmed him.

  • scratcherk

    home cooking is strong.

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Blount penalized for finishing off the block eh

    • Iskar36

      yea, that was weak as hell.

  • scratcherk

    hope they muff this one.

    • scratcherk

      welll….

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Next time, use the phrase “fumble away”

    • Iskar36

      Next time hope for a TO.

    • daveH

      Muff in but a G thang.

  • CTbirdsguy

    the PI on Mills was the right call but what was wrong with Blount’s block? He finished a block the way you’re supposed to!

    • Ark87

      15 yard penalty for that is absurd

      • daveH

        Like Jeffreys block in the back

    • daveH

      I think mills was going for it all along says a Homer

  • Insomniac

    The fuck?

  • A_T_G

    Karma almost got us that one.

  • meteorologist

    This defense is swarming. My gosh

  • scratcherk

    i thought chirs long was out this game

  • CrackSammich

    Again, wow. did anyone block?

    • Iskar36

      Blocker basically got out of the way for Jenkins to come in and slow down the RB. Hope we see more of that!

    • Insomniac

      Yes, their own RB.

  • A_T_G

    Schwartz just called for the shocker.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Don’t recall who said it below, but I agree – I love that this defense tackles well.

    I recall 2 years ago, running the missed tackle counter on this blog. Those were dark days. FU Billy Davis.

    • Allen3000

      Billy Avis would just blame it on the players like he did with Kendricks.

      • Crus57

        It’s all about execution, as Chip always said. Because apparently getting an orchestra to play twinkle twinkle little star is all on the orchestra

  • dandynator

    Wait til we get jones and darby…

  • A_T_G

    Yeah Mills.

  • Insomniac

    Timmy almost got home

  • scratcherk

    My Goodness…

  • scratcherk

    It was fucking laying there.

  • CrackSammich

    Yep. its a thursday night game.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Thank you Robinson.

  • A_T_G

    Thank you Mr. Robinson.

  • scratcherk

    Patrick Robinson MVP

  • Allen3000

    Whew…

  • daveH
    • Insomniac

      Seumalo

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Carson Wentz.

  • Iskar36

    Jeez! Wow! Barner can’t muff that, but that’s not all on him. McDougle needs to get out of the way.

    • daveH

      Good insight by Mr Romo on that

      • Iskar36

        The left footed punter makes it slightly harder, I agree, but the bigger issue on that was McDougle pushing Barner away from the proper position under the ball. Barner needs to catch it either way though.

        • CrackSammich

          Donnie Jones is lefty. It doesn’t make sense.

  • Crus57

    Love how the ref gets up and signals Carolina ball

  • daveH

    Anything onthat Mr Media ??

  • meteorologist

    Wentz sailing again

    • A_T_G

      From pressure?

      • meteorologist

        Don’t think so

        • A_T_G

          I was wondering if he was rushing.

          • meteorologist

            I keep thinking he just needs to settle down but he had that 3rd down converted before the Timeout

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Bootleg.

  • scratcherk

    are u fucking kidding

  • Iskar36

    FUUUUUUCK

  • CrackSammich

    good job, dug. iceing your own fucking team.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Dammit Doug! Now is not the time to go all AR on us.

  • A_T_G

    I think the clock had run down.

    • Insomniac

      It did

    • Fufina

      it was 00’s for like 2 seconds… no one threw a flag tho

      • scratcherk

        i thought it barely turned zero and would have been pissed if the refs threw a flag.

      • A_T_G

        Was that the job of the guy trying to stop the action?

    • Crus57

      most QBs get til the clock should be at about -1.5 before they throw a flag.. but given these refs seem to be deep in the carolina bag probably wise to call time.

  • scratcherk

    TO was the right call, just sucks.

    • Ark87

      Hope we can make it up on the Mulligan

  • Allen3000

    These refs are in mid-week form.

  • scratcherk

    sucks.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Right-side again

    • CrackSammich

      overload. Peters can block two. Can’t expect anyone else to do it.

    • Insomniac

      Enable max protect mode.

  • Allen3000

    They brought the house and didn’t disguise it one bit. Sucks.

  • meteorologist

    Hope Wentz is ok… he’ll never show if something is wrong

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Where’s the block in the back call?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Refs 4 – Eagles 0

  • scratcherk

    uh hold????

  • TO BLACKS

    VAITAI SUCKS and should be BENCHED

  • daveH

    Only the pliability of youth kept Wentz from losing his arm forever on that twist

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Holding the Panthers to 3 here is a win.

  • Insomniac

    Fuck the refs

  • meteorologist

    Late but RG Trai Turner vs Cox is gonna be interesting

  • Tumtum

    Their middle school alow dance holding graham and no fuckin calls!!!

  • daveH

    Nice solo tackle VC

  • scratcherk

    pressure tantalizingly close.

    • Insomniac

      the ultimate tease

    • Fufina

      Strong holding going on. But so far the flags are staying in the refs pockets…. for Carolina

  • CrackSammich

    did he just audible by yelling “I changed it”?

    • Insomniac

      yea

  • CrackSammich

    pathetic.

  • Insomniac

    Why is Robinson covering a 6’5 WR.

    • meteorologist

      Because we don’t have a 6’5 CB , much less 2 of them

      • CrackSammich

        Nobody does.

  • daveH

    Exactly why he is a Dick

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Alright Carson, here’s another test. Reply to that shit.

  • scratcherk

    Love the “stay away from me so i can do my ridiculous superman shit” celebration

    • daveH

      Nantz nailed him on it also

  • Ark87

    We need to correct this Vaitai nonsense on the right side, we are not handling pressure frim the right side at all, difference in the game right now

    • Insomniac

      So we have Seumalo who also got beat like a drum a few weeks ago with some experience at RT. Can’t be worse right?

  • CrackSammich

    Scandal is on one of the other TVs here at work. I’m still mad about Asomugha marrying Kerry Washington.

  • daveH

    The smart dude brings Yagermeister and the royal dooshbags dont dilly dilly it.. stupid as it gets

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Actually, find that commercial somewhat entertaining. Shame the product is goat piss.

      • A Roy

        Concur on both counts.

      • daveH

        I don’t get the dilly dilly .. is it something Game of Thrones that i don’t watch ?

    • CrackSammich

      Jager, for when you dont want to enjoy the drink but still want an awful hangover.

  • scratcherk

    well looks like barner doesnt want to hit the hole…

  • scratcherk

    stretch play not working

    • Insomniac

      Vaitai.

  • Allen3000

    Gap discipline. Our DE’s are over pursuing and losing containment.

  • meteorologist

    I like the calls, going back to our so-far dominant run game. The results however…

  • Tumtum

    Not only is V not a future tackle. He isnt a current back up

  • scratcherk

    I’ve always wanted an eagles qb to do that.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Agreed

  • scratcherk

    come on barner.

  • CrackSammich

    Shovel pass. so hot right now.

  • Tumtum

    Where is mike??

    • daveH

      Had to run out to buy a new tv

      • Insomniac

        He’s probably on his way to the Linc right now

  • Allen3000

    That was an outstanding read by Wentz. Bad drop though.

  • A_T_G

    Mike was right.

  • A Roy

    Barner is not up to this game

  • meteorologist

    Haven’t gone deep at all

    • Insomniac

      We don’t have the time to

    • scratcherk

      no time

  • daveH

    Barner is weak today damn

  • scratcherk

    cant contain the blitz.

  • CrackSammich

    Yo, somebody gonna block tonight? Get Barner the fuck out of there until we’ve got the lead.

  • meteorologist

    They are shutting Ertz down, much to the chagrin of my fantasy teams . Alshon needs to step up

    • Tumtum

      They need to throw him slants.

      • meteorologist

        He needs to be able to do more than slants

  • Allen3000

    Yeah, get Barner the heck outta there. Tough matchup, but c’mon.

  • scratcherk

    lets go 3 TE

    • daveH

      Yes. .quick passes

  • A_T_G

    Is it bad that I wouldn’t mind seeing one of those quick WR screens against this blitz?

    • meteorologist

      Hit one to Agh, could work

    • Dragon_Eagle

      No. Support that call. After we starting running the ball with commitment.

    • Tumtum

      That is how you beat it. Cant go rb screen though…dont have a guy who can play rb foe it.

  • nicolajNN

    Missing Sproles today for the blitz pick-ups

  • Fufina

    Barner, Clement and Blount are all poor pass protectors as RB’s. Its really hurting not having Sproles or Smallwood today.

    • A Roy

      Yes, Smallwood was starting to get good at it.

  • Insomniac

    Guys I know this might sound awful but..

    how about we punish the blitz with..screens.

    • Tumtum

      Screens have been great last 3 weeks

    • Ark87

      We need something to counter this outrageous aggression

    • Dude

      The pass would need to be under 20ft high, and someone would need to catch it.

      • Insomniac

        the truth really hurts 🙁

    • dandynator

      Yeah wr screen weould be the time duggy

    • daveH

      He tried to get clement in thetree .. his nasty running

    • A Roy

      You’re right.

      • A Roy

        It does sound awful.

  • meteorologist

    Jernigan! Beast

  • sonofdman

    They got to get some hits on Newton.

    • Insomniac

      That’s how you break him. Cam is weak mentally and will check out if things don’t go his way.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Shut up with the Romo reminiscence.

    • Tumtum

      He isnt an Eagle hater like troy. I like em

  • CrackSammich

    That the first Dime set of the night?

  • meteorologist

    There we go rook

  • sonofdman

    That’s what I’m talking about!

    • daveH

      HA YES YES .. i was on 2 min delay and didn’t even know. ..

      • sonofdman

        I hate when that happens.

  • scratcherk

    FUCK YA

  • Dragon_Eagle

    YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Fuck Yeah

  • meteorologist

    Wow Cox vs Turner! Massive play

  • A_T_G

    Rasul!

  • Insomniac

    rasuuuuuuuuul

  • CrackSammich

    First career pick for Douglas.

    EDIT: Im wrong.

    • Insomniac

      2nd actually

  • scratcherk

    all about cox

  • Tumtum

    Anyone else notice every stop they have gotten on 3rd a coach starts eagle flapping and a player or 2 follows suit?

    • A_T_G

      Yep. How is that not taunting?

    • daveH

      Yup. .whats up with the travis kelce wings flapping she yat

  • Dragon_Eagle

    You owe us LeGarrette. Earn it!!

  • scratcherk

    cram it down their fucking throats

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Refs 5 Eagles 0

  • Tumtum

    Wow

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Flag?

  • scratcherk

    wheres the the fucking flag

  • CrackSammich

    oh fuck you

  • CrackSammich

    Brooks just ended Keuchlys life

  • scratcherk

    kuechly out

  • A_T_G

    And Blount got called for unnecessary roughness?

  • meteorologist

    I like the way Blount runs. Something about it.. him and (random) Tyreek Hill just strike me as extremely field smart in their running

    • meteorologist

      They way he protects his body sometimes and shows physical dominance sometimes

  • Insomniac

    Hello unnecessary roughness call?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    You go for that.

  • scratcherk

    go for it

  • scratcherk

    sneak that shit

  • Dragon_Eagle

    QB sneak

  • sonofdman

    does CBS not show replays?

  • scratcherk

    a QB that fucking sneaks and rushes up to the line. I’m in ecstasy

  • CrackSammich

    I love how excited Romo is. Just living the dream out there.

  • scratcherk

    if only he kept that

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Bang it in guys.

  • scratcherk

    dont get hurt buddy

  • CrackSammich

    Dont fucking do that Wentz… lol. But i love it.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Credit that defender.

    • sonofdman

      Yeah. I thought Wentz was gonna go right through him or push him into the end zone

  • Allen3000

    Dangerous decision, but love the aggressiveness

  • scratcherk

    BLUNT IT IN

  • CrackSammich

    hard call right now.

    • Tumtum

      Wish we had lane

  • daveH

    W E N T Z. AHHHHHH LOVE IT but save that one for a super bowl

  • sonofdman

    Shuffle pass time

  • scratcherk

    YEA BABY

  • scratcherk

    Double fantasy points.

    • CrackSammich

      DISCOUNT DOUBLE CHECK

  • Dragon_Eagle

    If he doesn’t make the fucking Pro Bowl this year…

  • Insomniac

    Eerily similar play calls from last week. But what works, works!

  • daveH
    • CrackSammich

      daps.

    • GENETiC-FREAK

      Fist it!

  • Allen3000

    That time Wentz could have run it in, but great throw to Ertz.

  • meteorologist

    7 plays for 12 yards lol. This is how we lead the league in time of possession

    • A_T_G

      Great minds…

      • sonofdman

        Where? 🙂

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Kill Cam now

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Ertz!!!

  • A_T_G

    7 plays, 12 yards. That is how you win time of possession.

    • daveH

      It matters.

    • Ark87

      Great doing all those runs for the clock, even got ate a timeout

  • scratcherk

    how many penalties on the eagles, fucking refs

  • scratcherk

    how you beat pressure…

    • Insomniac

      If only we had a 3rd down RB..preferably one of the best ever at that role.

  • Ark87

    Lord Jesus just get Wentz out of this game healthy, even more important than the W

    • A_T_G

      …not that both wouldn’t be greatly appreciated, just sayin.

      • Ark87

        Anything but neither

  • Tumtum

    Calling pass rush. Need you again. One pressure all game.and it caused int.

    • sonofdman

      Yep

    • CrackSammich

      Im fine with it. they’re keeping all the plays in front of them.

  • daveH

    [Oooooooooo almost

  • scratcherk

    so close…

  • A_T_G

    Swat that arm, Chris.

    • scratcherk

      TWSS?

  • sonofdman

    damn

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Credit to Cam.

    • sonofdman

      Bradham made a good play and Cam still got the ball over the line

      • Dragon_Eagle

        very few QBs, even RBs, that would have made that.

  • daveH

    Like how McLoed went for it

    • Tumtum

      Bradham

      • daveH

        Think it was going for a tackle against Cam. . Maybe it was Bradham. .he was great today

        • Tumtum

          I was talking about the play where mcsffety caught it, brandham knee he had help with the tackle and dove at the ball.

  • Tumtum

    Bradham dives for ball there. Kniws he has help and can risk it. He is playing a game today, boy

  • Insomniac

    I wouldn’t have mind seeing McLeod laying Cam out.

    • daveH

      He tried. .like him for the gamely effort

  • sonofdman

    Douglas with a Mills style finger wag!

  • A Roy

    Finger wag

  • CrackSammich

    Romo… lol

  • Tumtum

    Cmon

  • scratcherk

    attaboys

  • CrackSammich

    All about cox

    • A_T_G

      TWSS

      • CrackSammich

        TWNantzS

  • scratcherk

    amazing he held on

    • A_T_G

      TWSS.

  • daveH

    Beautiful TV viewing watching that timely gang sack

    • A_T_G

      TWSS…

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Did they use their final TO after the sack?

    • sonofdman

      yes

  • Tumtum

    Another one!! Go!!

  • sonofdman

    It was too long we had to go without Cox. I hope I never have two weeks without Cox again.

  • Insomniac

    Hamilton did work on the LG on that play.

  • meteorologist

    Lol @ Doug windmilling his arm trying to help the refs

  • scratcherk

    bradham playing a game boy.

  • Tumtum

    53 for probowl

  • Insomniac

    Are they keeping Jernigan out to be safe or am I not noticing him?

    • CrackSammich

      he’s had a TFL

      • Insomniac

        Apparently he got hurt and returned to the field but he hasn’t been in since then

        • Crus57

          It was on a TFL, he landed on his back and then sat up and signalled to the sideline, not sure if he’s been in since

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Watch the fake!!!! Oh, never mind.

  • CrackSammich

    lol. this is stupid

  • scratcherk

    good stand

  • sonofdman

    Wow. I’m glad we escaped without giving up points.

    • daveH

      Huge

  • Checkdown Charlie

    No Balls

  • scratcherk

    well they got no Jake the Make

  • daveH

    Awesome hold into the half ..that’s huge

  • CrackSammich

    Riverboat Ron was fucking stupid right there.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I am impressed with how we’ve played so far. 2nd half on the road in a dogfight is a big, big test

    • meteorologist

      Tremendous. If we keep this up I think it’s time to think of us as contenders. We have played consistently well this year

      • meteorologist

        Plus, the obligatory #DarbyJones

        • CrackSammich

          #LocksDown

        • Insomniac

          We’d probably be up by a TD if we had Sproles. We miss having a 3 down RB like him.

          • Dragon_Eagle

            We’d be up by a TD if Lane Johnson was healthy.

          • Insomniac

            Yea that too.

    • Ark87

      Very even, this one is is beating the hell out of stars like Wentz, Cam, and Kuechly

  • nicolajNN

    What a weird end sequence for Carolina

  • A Roy

    Well, we know we can play with a good team on the road with a short week and some guys banged up.

  • Insomniac

    I have to pay the refs some more at half time – Rivera

  • A_T_G

    No matter how the game ends, this was a test if we are good enough to play with the big boys: we are.

  • CrackSammich

    At least they stopped throwing flags for a couple minutes.

    • Howie Littlefinger

      Can they still flag both teams or only on the away teams for Thursdays…

      didn’t know they lockout refs were still working NFL games

  • A_T_G

    So, T. Kielce mocked the Eagles with the flapping arms and now a Panthers coach is doing it.

    When is the last time you remember an Eagles player actually doing that?

    • sonofdman

      Terrell Owens in 2004?

      • A_T_G

        Right before he started throwing batteries at Santa, right?

        • sonofdman

          lol. But after he cheered for Michael Irvin getting injured.

    • meteorologist

      So funny!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    After further review, Refs 5 Eagles 1.

    Refs could’ve given the Cam an OOB call (would’ve been wrong, but we’ll take the crumbs they hand us.)

  • Checkdown Charlie

    I hope arm flapping Kueckley is out for good

    • CrackSammich

      If you mean the game, I agree. If you mean for life…

      • Checkdown Charlie

        The game………..

      • Dragon_Eagle

        Agreed. Kueckley is a great player. Good for the game. Like Cox, Like J. Peppers in his prime or Aaron Rodgers. Worth watching no matter the team.

    • scratcherk

      nah he’s a good guy

    • Insomniac

      Thomas Davis can get ktfo too for twisting Wentz’s arm like that.

      • unhinged

        Yeah that’s some dirty shit. But the NFL is all about protecting the QB.

  • scratcherk

    carolina gets the ball to start

  • meteorologist

    This team is so good and credit goes to the OLine. Peters especially. And actual receivers. And the Dline playing to expectations. And on and on

    • unhinged

      If they can figure out the blitz packages Wentz will play next week.

      • meteorologist

        With Lane Johnson, there’s no problem

    • Crus57

      I think the big thing is that everyone seems to be either improved from last year or at least as good, very little regression and some big improvers with hopefully more to come.

  • Insomniac

    It’s weird seeing Deion Sanders having hair after seeing him bald for years.

    • scratcherk

      i knew something was offf….

      • A_T_G

        Or on.

    • CrackSammich

      TWSS

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Random comment, but I feel obligated.

    Jason Fucking Peters better get into the Hall of Fame.

    • SeanofDead

      First ballot…..no doubt

    • meteorologist

      Hopefully we can win him a chip. That should get it done

    • daveH

      And that Jackie Chan movie looks bad but goooood

  • A_T_G

    So I think I need to reserve our first pick next year for an OT. The difference tonight is startling.

    • Insomniac

      Paging D3FB.

    • RC5000

      I hear you but drafting we get in trouble when we draft for need. He’s gotta be a best player guy.

  • CrackSammich

    Curry is having himself a good night.

  • meteorologist

    Cox vs Turner!

  • scratcherk

    Cox destroying a Probowl OG

  • A_T_G

    Hey guys, just imagine if Jones turns out to be Eric Allen.

  • scratcherk

    OH MY

  • scratcherk

    OH MYYYYY

  • meteorologist

    Why, with Mccafrey and Samuel, do they throw to Jonathan Stewart lol

    • Insomniac

      Rivera is part of the Andy coaching tree (I think)

      • teltschikfakeout88

        He is and is prone to WtF play calling like how Carolina ended the half…

  • scratcherk

    BEAUTY

  • SeanofDead

    HAHAHA!!!
    Gotta capitalize again!!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    HA!!!!!

  • scratcherk

    Cam FACE

  • CrackSammich

    I love the Cam hissy fit

  • sonofdman

    scary

  • A_T_G

    Savvy move, Wentz.

  • sonofdman

    Fuck Yeah!!!!!!

  • scratcherk

    ERTZZZ

  • meteorologist

    Ertz the all pro

    • daveH

      No YAC worries when you catch ut IN the endzone

  • RC5000

    Sweet!

  • scratcherk

    DOUBLE FUCKIGN POINTSSSS

    • meteorologist

      Lol. Happy for ya

    • CrackSammich

      DISCOUNT DOUBLE FUCKING CHECK

  • Dragon_Eagle

    To quote SonofOldman: “Fuck Yeah!!!!!” sums it up.,

    • A_T_G

      Sonofdman, not old man.

      • Dragon_Eagle

        Noted.

      • sonofdman

        I picked that name because my dad used to refer to himself in the third person as “Dman” (my last name starts with D). He’s getting pretty old though, so SonofOldman works also.

    • A Roy

      As Gus Grissom would say… Effin A, Bubba.

  • RC5000

    What a throw!

  • A Roy

    Sounds like we’re still travelling well. Lotta cheers there.

  • Insomniac

    Stop it guys I can’t upvote fast enough on my phone

  • scratcherk

    Ertz with medical staff around him?

    • A_T_G

      Getting his autograph?

      Checking out pictures of his wife?

      • Insomniac

        Checking fantasy football.

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Ummm can we try to figure out an adjustment to make them pay for the these edge blitzes and yeah nice TD by ertz

  • Dragon_Eagle

    This season is so much more fun than the last 10.

    • meteorologist

      There’s current dominance and legit hope for a long future

    • John Luck Pickerd

      Agreed, 2008 was the last I felt this good about the team. 2013 is honorable mention.

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Hicks out for game

    • A Roy

      What?

  • sonofdman

    Big Balls Doug!

  • meteorologist

    GREAT CALL DOUGIE

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Holy shit Doug.

  • scratcherk

    DOUGIE YOU BEAUTIFUL FUCKING MAN

    • daveH

      Huge leadership move by Coach

  • SeanofDead

    Analytics strikes again!

  • daveH

    LOVE THAT COACHING CALL

  • meteorologist

    #DOUGIEFRESH

  • CrackSammich

    Remember earlier, when I said after they declined the penalty that CAR should have gone for it? Yeah. That’s why. fucking daggers.

  • scratcherk

    DOUGIE YOU BEAUTIFUL FACED FREAKING MAN

  • Insomniac

    Blount objects can break walls.

  • A_T_G

    Shit, Romo just stole my comment.

    • meteorologist

      About the OLine?

    • scratcherk

      what he say

      • A_T_G

        About ballsy taking points off the board.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    My office, deep in the heart of Philly, tolerates a Cowboys fan. We have a great back and forth.

    Warned her today, that if we win this game tonight, Eagles fans will be exceptionally intolerable for about 15 days.

    • Insomniac

      Purge her or show her the light. Preferably the first option.

  • SeanofDead

    That’s gotta be pretty damn demoralizing for Panthers D

    • daveH

      We feel it. . HICKS out, ankle injury

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Crap KO coverage

  • Iskar36

    Seriously, i know it is not the norm, but i love Doug’s feel for the game and willingness to take risks.

  • scratcherk

    in their heads fellas.

  • xeynon

    Most coaches let that slide and just take the extra point. Pederson knew the situation and made the mathematically correct call.

    The dude is a good coach. I don’t know what Mike Lombardi is smoking.

    • meteorologist

      Yes sir!

    • daveH

      Massive Leadership and heads up and initiative.

  • sonofdman

    Fucking refs

  • A_T_G

    Ha! Douglas looks at the dropped ball like there was something that must be wrong with it.

  • RC5000

    That was ballsy! I love it!

  • meteorologist

    First real deep shot for either team?

  • scratcherk

    fuck mills

  • Dragon_Eagle

    That one was legit even if ticky-tacky.

    • FairOaks

      Unnecessary.

    • xeynon

      Meh. He barely touched him and didn’t impede his momentum at all. That’s a non-call 9 times out of 10.

      • Dragon_Eagle

        Grabbed back shoulder and pulled. Its a flag.

        • RC5000

          Shouldn’t have called it because he barely touched him and it had no effect on the play because he couldn’t catch it since we intercepted it. There would be a penalty on every play if they called everything technical.

          It was just poor officiating. You don’t call everything. There would be 50-60 flags a game. You have to let em play.

    • RC5000

      No it was a bad call.

    • Insomniac

      I don’t think so.

  • meteorologist

    That’s a no call

  • SeanofDead

    shouldn’t it be uncatchable..so no penalty?

  • CTbirdsguy

    Can. Not. Wait. Until Mills is our 4th corner

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Crap call

  • RC5000

    That was a bad call. Technically it was but that had no effect on the play.

  • Allen3000

    Dumb. No reason to do that there. Tacky call, but gotta keep the hands off.

    • A Roy

      Yes and yes.

  • scratcherk

    keuchly needs to retire.

    • anon

      or play in a safer city, like philly

      • Insomniac

        or just retire.

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Hicks out

    • Tumtum

      Noooooo

    • Insomniac

      Hicks and Jernigan out. Hope it’s nothing serious. Also where the hell are the sideline reporters for these things today?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Ow. Hicks out.

  • John Luck Pickerd

    Fuck Pete Morelli

  • CrackSammich

    heh. I kind of like that play design by CAR there. kind of a QB draw screen

  • sonofdman

    that’s 2 finger wags for Douglas!

  • scratcherk

    nice play rasul

  • CrackSammich

    Should have called a PI right there, right?

    • RC5000

      It was offensive PI / offensive facemask actually .

    • John Luck Pickerd

      Said the same thing. What awful one sided officiating

  • meteorologist

    If we hold them..

  • daveH

    What no flags ?????

  • CrackSammich

    ha, actually i could have seen the aregument for a flag on jenkins there.

  • meteorologist

    Bradham. So solid

  • sonofdman

    Bradham is having a good game!

  • scratcherk

    Bradham going cabana boy on em

  • daveH

    tackle by Bradham.

  • Checkdown Charlie

    nice stop bradham

  • xeynon

    Apparently Jalen Mills can be a lockdown corner as long as he’s matched up against Russell Shepard.

    • sonofdman

      Hee hee

  • A_T_G

    Okay, who said they didn’t want to resign Bradham earlier today?

    • A Roy

      Lol

    • daveH

      No one

    • sonofdman

      Must have been that SonofOldman guy.

    • Insomniac

      I don’t want to let him go without an offer but if he chooses to leave for more money then I’ll just be sad.

  • CrackSammich

    yo, what the hell is that on the back of mills’s head

    • daveH

      A bitcoin.

    • Tumtum

      Never noticed that? I call it a baby rat tail.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Who said it earlier? The tackling on **this** team is superb. And it is so much fun to watch.

    • meteorologist

      It boggles the mind!

  • CrackSammich

    Wait, where is it being reported that Jernigan is out?

    • anon

      announcers called that hicks / jernigan both out

  • teltschikfakeout88

    If Jernigan is out we be alright with honey bo bo…

  • Ark87

    Injuries piling up on D, let’s pull away on offense, get them relief

    • A_T_G

      TD here let’s everyone breath.

    • Insomniac

      30 minute drive or Doug needs to be fired.

  • CrackSammich

    lol @ all the blood all over Barner’s uniform.

  • Donald Kalinowski

    Romo is a really good announcer

    • scratcherk

      i will watch a game just because he’s announcing

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Can’t up vote that on principle. But will acknowledge he doesn’t totally suck.

      • Donald Kalinowski

        I liked him even when he was a Cowboy

    • xeynon

      Yeah, he’s great. Likable, self-effacing, and genuinely insightful.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      But wait until the 4th quarter before you anoint him 😉

      • sonofdman

        Subtle dig. I love it

  • scratcherk

    ROLL THAT BLOUNT

  • meteorologist

    They’re jumping the slants, time for a double move…

  • daveH

    Hollins!

  • scratcherk

    MACK

  • meteorologist

    Wow. Even Mack10 contributing. So good

  • CrackSammich

    MACK

  • scratcherk

    Big V barely holding on

  • Donald Kalinowski

    MACK HOLLINS THERE YOU ARE!

  • Insomniac

    More Mack, they’re not ready for a 2nd truck

  • xeynon

    Wentz is a stud. He’s getting visibly better every week.

  • CrackSammich

    Damn, Kelce’s got wheels.

  • Tumtum

    You can turn it up field Barner..

  • A_T_G

    Barner should have taken out thevarm flapping coach.

  • scratcherk

    has there been a single penalty called on Carolina?

    • CrackSammich

      the one we declined at least.

      • sonofdman

        and 1 other illegal formation we declined after we stopped them on third down in the first quarter.

    • A_T_G

      The 2-pointer.

    • Insomniac

      Yea that one after their FG..

  • scratcherk

    Jake the Make time

  • daveH

    We need a 4th down to go for. …

    • Tumtum

      We already went for 1 earlier!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Greatest Kicker Ever.

  • CrackSammich

    Well, that play got shut down…

  • Checkdown Charlie

    JAKE

  • meteorologist

    Wentz is fearless. Inspires confidence. Almost like Jake Elliot

  • CrackSammich

    MAKE ELLIOT

    • daveH

      Make it J4KE.

  • scratcherk

    Can we get Marvin Lewis on the line?

    • scratcherk

      take-backsies?

  • xeynon

    I love Wentz’s competitiveness but I don’t want him taking hits like this unless it’s the NFC title game at least.

  • daveH

    J4KE !

    • A_T_G

      JAK3

      • daveH

        J4K3.

  • John Luck Pickerd

    What are Marvin Lewis’ thoughts now?

    • scratcherk

      Jean Luc with a fro. Awesome.

    • xeynon

      “He’s what, the greatest kicker in NFL history since he got there? I’m not impressed.”

  • A_T_G

    Jake makes going for 4th a much tougher call.

  • sonofdman

    Being up by 8 is better than being up by 7!

    • Insomniac

      Did Doug check the math for that?

      • A_T_G

        He has analytics guys for that.

      • Ark87

        The math would have been close. It’s always close when you have a solid chance of a fg vs the chance of keeping a drive to maybe get 7. Easier call when it is punt vs high chance of at least 3 if you convert

    • CrackSammich

      #math

  • Donald Kalinowski

    Poor Caleb Sturgis

    • Insomniac

      He’ll find a job soon.

      • scratcherk

        TB on line 1

  • Allen3000

    Sometimes it seems Wentz doesn’t trust his speed. He had the edge on a pursuing DT, but chose to cut it back instead. I think he could’ve hit the corner and picked up the first down.

    • meteorologist

      Idk. Think there was some pursuit upfield offscreen

  • br0ken

    Really missing Lane this game
    When Wentz gets any time he’s carving them up

    • xeynon

      It’s the blitzes that are killing us. That Peppers strip sack aside Big V hasn’t been awful.

      • br0ken

        Not awful, not whiffing but getting pushed back alot

        • xeynon

          Yeah, but the interior guys are too.

      • Insomniac

        The right side is hanging by a thread

  • A_T_G

    To be fair to Marvin Lewis, he didn’t have Jason Peters to coach up Jake.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Panthers need to run the ball more. Its going so well.

    • scratcherk

      i think they’re listening

  • scratcherk

    One of these motherfuckers stole bradham’s umbrella

    • sonofdman

      Lol

  • Donald Kalinowski

    Bradham is playing like a probowler

    • meteorologist

      Was

  • sonofdman

    Bradham again!

  • scratcherk

    Fuck bradham hurt

  • sonofdman

    Shit

  • meteorologist

    Bradham. Gave us his all

  • CrackSammich

    Yeah, that’s… Oof

  • Dragon_Eagle

    shit

  • daveH

    Bradham best hit of the night ..too bad Dixon is so huge. Craaaaaaaap

  • scratcherk

    hopefully just a stinger

  • RC5000

    Be a stinger please.

  • John Luck Pickerd

    Bradham with the game of his life and then immediately goes down with injury.

  • Donald Kalinowski

    NOOO NOOO BRADHAM NOOO. I WOULD HAVE RATHER GIVEN THEM THE FIRST DOWN.

    • CTbirdsguy

      I would rather they have scored….

  • FairOaks

    Bradham sold out on that tackle and may have paid for it

  • Tumtum

    Oh no. Not pretty

    • RC5000

      HOPE it’s a stinger.

  • xeynon

    Bradham having a good game. We can’t afford to lose both him and Hicks.

    • scratcherk

      forgot hicks out

  • Insomniac

    Oh god no

  • dandynator

    We didnt chose jake he chose us

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Damn hoping Bradham is just shook…

  • Ark87

    Fuck, we gotta get out of this game in a hurry. Chew up that clock!

  • Insomniac

    Can we get some damn sideline reports? Is CBS this incompetent?

    • A_T_G

      No and yes. The order of the answers may change.

  • meteorologist

    Doug really has the guys ready to play today. Impressive

  • scratcherk

    Is Joe Banner a trainer now?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Shame of this all is: both these teams are good. Playoff worthy. Maybe deep runs. We’re banging the crap out of each other. Hope we’re both healthy enough to see the rematch in January.

    • xeynon

      We have 11 days off before our next game. Good thing.

  • sonofdman

    All the penalties called on the Panthers have come on late flags after the eagles have already stopped them third down.

  • CrackSammich

    Hey, everybody. Win or lose, I’m getting paid to watch this game right now.

  • scratcherk

    where are teh blitz beaters

  • meteorologist

    Jeffery cmon man

  • scratcherk

    dropped in the bucket

  • sonofdman

    No flag on that. He had his arm.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Refs 6 Eagles 1

  • RC5000

    They can’t adjust to the blitz.

  • xeynon

    We’ve got to burn them on one of these blitzes.

  • RC5000

    P.I.

  • Donald Kalinowski

    ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? WHERE IS THE FLAG?!?!!?

    • scratcherk

      im sorry they dont call those on the home team

    • Dragon_Eagle

      My bar just heard the same. Including the outdoor tables.

  • Tumtum

    For all you guys that wanna pay 17…

    • A Roy

      Watch the replay…

    • RC5000

      His arm was held clearly.

  • teltschikfakeout88

    PI and we didn’t get the call

  • A Roy

    Goddam home cooking from this crew

  • sonofdman

    With the way they have been calling PI on the Eagles, that was definitely PI.

  • CrackSammich

    OK, again, both punters are left footed. Romo’s comments were really dumb on that one earlier.

  • meteorologist

    Ruins Wentz fulfilling Romo’s challenge to stand in and deliver the ball accurately

    • Tumtum

      I mean he did his part. That was a drop.

      • RC5000

        No it wasn’t. Again, he was clearly held.

        • Tumtum

          Nope

  • Insomniac

    That is so fucking textbook defensive PI too. Hooked his arm early and impeded the act of trying to go for the catch. Fuck you Morelli.

  • John Luck Pickerd

    So how was that not PI and the Mills/McLeod pick was???

    • Tumtum

      Timing of contact..

      • sonofdman

        Bullshit. The DB was holding down Jeffery’s arm before the ball got there.

        • Tumtum

          Catch the ball. He shouldn’t need excuses.

    • Donald Kalinowski

      Should have sold it more

    • xeynon

      Home cookin’.

  • meteorologist

    McCleod taking good angles today

  • CrackSammich

    Looks like Goode is in for Bradham.

  • CrackSammich

    Oof. that is not how you defend a RO

    • CTbirdsguy

      Goode and Walker yikes

  • xeynon

    He’ll probably bust off a 50 yard TD now but I’m not impressed with McCaffrey. He looks like a white Lorenzo Booker to me.

    • meteorologist

      Well said

    • anon

      McCaffrey doesn’t want the pain of running between tackles

    • RC5000

      Not if he moved to WR. He’s a bit more explosive in open space than Booker was.

  • sonofdman

    Bradham back in!

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Seriously?

  • sonofdman

    Now BG is hurt

    • scratcherk

      ugh

    • Checkdown Charlie

      body bag game

      • daveH

        Body bag sport

  • CrackSammich

    A little Jenkins headhunting on that one.

  • Donald Kalinowski

    BRADHAM BACK IN BABY

  • Donald Kalinowski

    GRAHAMA WTF

  • scratcherk

    FUCK U REFS

    • Donald Kalinowski

      Right call. But still fuck them.

  • A_T_G

    Hicks, Graham, Jurnigan, Bradham?

  • CrackSammich

    nope

  • Dragon_Eagle

    What a game.

    • daveH

      Thinking same exact thing yo

      • Dragon_Eagle

        Seriously. NFL Network hasn’t had a good game in forever. This is playoff level stuff.

        • Donald Kalinowski

          That Rams game was pretty good

    • Insomniac

      The game wouldn’t be close if the refs weren’t screwing us over.

      • Dragon_Eagle

        All the better. Wouldn’t want it to be too easy.

        • Insomniac

          No it hasn’t been better. Our guys are getting banged up because of it.

  • CrackSammich

    ugh. just go down barner…

  • Donald Kalinowski

    FACE MASK

  • Tumtum

    K no more Barner

  • A_T_G

    Face Mask?

    • ColorSgt

      Yeah but not with these refs. This is terrible.

  • xeynon

    Maybe Sproles can run that play. Barner, no.

  • scratcherk

    marcus throw a fucking block, hes past the line

    • meteorologist

      Right. Wouldn’t have mattered though

  • meteorologist

    Seumalo out there whiffing…

  • CrackSammich

    OFC

  • sonofdman

    What Wis did not hold. This is bullshit

    • ColorSgt

      Yep on the second part.

  • scratcherk

    fuck you refs

    • ColorSgt

      I haven’t seen a game called this bad in awhile.

  • Patrick

    Jesus christ, just pound the fucking ball with Blount between the tackles.

  • teltschikfakeout88

    55 mayo is a cheap shot mf and he got away with a face mask

    • daveH

      MACK

  • meteorologist

    WTF is Carolina 5 deep at LB? Sheesh

    • CTbirdsguy

      Mayo has looked good hasn’t he. A lot better than Goode

  • Donald Kalinowski

    Barner you idiot.

    • scratcherk

      be more decisive.

  • sonofdman

    That was nice

  • scratcherk

    love this guy.

  • RC5000

    Mack!

  • CrackSammich

    MACK… but holy shit Wentz

  • CTbirdsguy

    amazing play by wentz

  • A_T_G

    Wow, Carson. Just wow.

    • daveH

      Lots of smiles in the 2 1 5 and the 6 1 OH YEaH

  • Tumtum

    The emergence of the guy who is playing Jeffery’s spot next year

  • sonofdman

    Hell Yeah!

  • Donald Kalinowski

    GIMME THAT BABY MACK

    • sonofdman

      I want my baby Mack baby Mack baby Mack.

  • meteorologist

    Bout time AJ..

    • RC5000

      Wentz has to throw it to him. AJ’s game was half contested catches with Cutler.

  • scratcherk

    theres that fucking deep ball

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Did I mention that I like this new Eagles QB? Hope we keep him.

  • CrackSammich

    There. thats what you fucking pay for. shut your mouths.

    • Insomniac

      we need more

    • Tumtum

      Yeah man Riley Cooper money earned there. I’m fine with that.

      • A Roy

        BTW, like your “new” avatar. Seems more natural.

      • sonofdman

        I love that we have an irrationally hates Alshon guy! It’s like everyone on the team has at least one commenter who dislikes them and will not give them credit no matter what they do.

  • dandynator

    Wentz is god

  • xeynon

    Jesus Wentz must be so demoralizing to play against.

  • Donald Kalinowski

    You could throw that better Wentz

    • Patrick

      To be fair, part of why Douggy Ps screens dont always work that well is that Wentz is pretty inconsistent with the throws.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Yes. But after the previous 2 throws I’m willing to give a little.

    • xeynon

      I really can’t wait to see what depths of moronitude Skip Bayless plumbs to come up with a hot take about how Wentz isn’t that good tomorrow.

      • CrackSammich

        I think I prefer that to Wentz becoming a national favorite. Living long enough to see yourself become the villain and all that…

      • Tumtum

        PFF gonna lose all credit when they hammer him 15 minutes after final whistle with their highly critical in depth look

      • Insomniac

        He took too many sacks (conveniently forgets how bad Vaitai is).

  • scratcherk

    good catch by ags there

    • teltschikfakeout88

      Wished he could of made a move and get a couple more yards…then again he might fumble in traffic

      • Donald Kalinowski

        Bad throw by Wentz. He had no chance

  • meteorologist

    Chew that clock. Glad they are representing so well on a national stage

  • A Roy

    4th quarter lead on the road.

  • Tumtum

    Are we watching a really good team here or is Carolina a fluke?

    • scratcherk

      both

    • meteorologist

      Washington was good too and we won. Don’t doubt

    • daveH

      Always a bit of both

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Carolina is not a fluke.

      This is our most impressive performance – even when/if we collapse next quarter.

    • CTbirdsguy

      We’re good and Carolina is good. It’s a good football game.

    • A Roy

      If Carolina is a top team, we are too.

    • A_T_G

      They can’t all be flukes.

      • CrackSammich

        Some, I assume, are good people.

  • Ark87

    I feel like these Thursay games no one gets enough time to recover from the week before and it leaves them more vulnerable to injury

    • Crus57

      at least we’re getting ours out of the way early in the season

  • daveH

    YaysyaAaaaaaaaags

  • CrackSammich

    WOOOOOO

  • sonofdman

    AG – GO – LAR!!!!!!!!!11

  • meteorologist

    • sonofdman

      I have Ertz on 1 and Ags on another!

    • RC5000

      Doubly or quadruply awesome…

    • meteorologist

  • scratcherk

    oh my goodness ags.

  • dandynator

    Wentz is heavenly 4real. tHat 3rd down he just made roethlisbergerlike

    • meteorologist

      “That” 3rd down. Like every 3rd down this year it seems

      • dandynator

        Lol true dat

  • Insomniac

    Agssssss

  • A_T_G

    There is the blitz beater.

  • Someguy77
  • xeynon

    Agholor is an upgrade on Matthews as a slot WR. Way more explosive.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Excellent point. JMatt would have caught, but not made the end zone.

      • Patrick

        I mean, that OT winning catch against that Dalass team begs to differ on that. JMatt would have made the end zone, he just wouldn’t have caught the ball.

      • Insomniac

        I’m not sure if JMatt would have really caught that.

    • meteorologist

      WAY

  • Ark87

    This team respects it’s vets, Kelce love

    • daveH

      Whats better. .seeing a guy give it to his lineman to spike or a guy who shoos away all his teammates to walk to the tv to celebrate by himself

  • RC5000

    UGHOLOR HAS DIED thankfully.

    • scratcherk

      lol

  • Someguy77

    Who would have guessed this run defense would be notably better without Logan this year?

  • Donald Kalinowski

    Don’t sleep defense

  • CrackSammich

    yo, call that cheap shot on bradham by 68

    • meteorologist

      Don’t think it was cheap (hope) but it was ugly. Glad to see Bradham bounce up

  • scratcherk

    better not give it to the eagles with 9 minutes left….

  • xeynon

    Kendricks quietly having a solid game.

  • Donald Kalinowski

    OMG Kendricks. I’m so happy we didn’t trade him for a 7th

  • scratcherk

    Kendricks… wooo boy.

  • Someguy77

    Newton isn’t nearly as dynamic running the ball. Looks like McNabb after he got a bit heavier and was in the year 6-7 years.

    • Insomniac

      He’s had a lot of injuries. He was electric when he was younger.

    • meteorologist

      Looks like a black Wentz

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Punch…counterpunch.

  • ColorSgt

    Hold not called

  • CrackSammich

    Graham is back.

    • A Roy

      Good. Worried

  • Tumtum

    Do I hear defense chants?

  • scratcherk

    BG back in

  • br0ken

    We need pressure

  • Insomniac

    Holy shit Hamilton pancaked the LG and that hustle.

  • sonofdman

    Worm burner!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Good call, Jim.

  • meteorologist

    Wow we are up by 2 scores and it still feels so tense

  • scratcherk

    fuck you refs

  • CrackSammich

    omg, that replay…. thought he did it again

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I thought only Brady got those calls.

  • Someguy77

    Why is Walker playing so many snaps tonight?

    • RC5000

      hicks out

      • Someguy77

        Ok I missed the early part of the game.

  • CTbirdsguy

    Cam can be a hard nosed runner sometimes, but an Italian soccer player wayyy too much

  • scratcherk

    whos keeping the ref score?

  • 博客不错,大爱哦!

  • CrackSammich

    he took a hell of a hit on that one.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    TD

    • sonofdman

      yep

    • daveH

      Yes. .50/50 if they can overturn the call on the field however .. glad they at least whacked him

  • xeynon

    Newton is going to have an abbreviated career with all the hits he takes.

    • daveH

      Brings it on himself

    • Someguy77

      Notable on the close up how large that flak jacket he is wearing right now is.

  • meteorologist

    He threw the challenge because he was gonna call timeout for Cam anyway. Smart

  • A_T_G

    He is going to get the TD.

    • meteorologist

      He scored. But there’s no indisputable evidence. No TD

      • Crus57

        with these refs?

  • sonofdman

    Definitely a TD

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Agreed.

  • CrackSammich

    He’s got the distance, but they have to prove he was in bounds still when he get there.

    • daveH

      The call wad made in NYC not Charlotte

    • A_T_G

      He doesn’t need to be in bounds though, the goal line extends forever.

      • meteorologist

        Huh?

        • A_T_G

          He doesn’t need to get it inside the pylon, just beyond the goal line extended past the sideline before he lands.

          That’s what they meant when they said it extends around the world.

          • meteorologist

            Hmm didn’t know that

      • sonofdman

        They changed the rule a few years ago. The ball needs to pass inside the pylon (or over the pylon), but the body can be anywhere as long as it hasn’t touched OB.

        • A_T_G

          That’s not what Romo just said with the “goal line extends around the world” explanation.

          • sonofdman

            I’m pretty sure they modified that rule.

    • Insomniac

      Yea not enough evidence.

  • CTbirdsguy

    Refs 7 Eagles 2?

  • Dragon_Eagle

    OK. Refs 7 Eagles 2.

    I’ll make it a tie, if the Panthers fail to score.

    • CTbirdsguy

      stepped on your toes there, shoulda been more patient

  • meteorologist

    Wow the grunts on that play lol

  • scratcherk

    cam sneak td

  • RC5000

    blown coverage. Goode?

  • FairOaks

    Was probably going to call a timeout anyways to let cam catch his breath so may as well challenge

    • meteorologist

      Exactly

  • ColorSgt

    Time to eat 8 minutes off the clock.

  • Tumtum

    Ok Fipp. Be ready for anything!!!

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Its just a great football game. I’m glad I get to see this.

    • Fufina

      Refs have been awful. So much home team calling. But that has kept the game tight and is good experience for the team. Go win it from here.

      • Dragon_Eagle

        Yes, but they always are. Despite that, these are good, talented teams making plays. Good game.

    • RC5000

      Refs made it closer than it should be.

  • Fufina

    Go win the game with a 6+ min TD drive

    • Dude

      Time to see what the run game is all about. This should be all Blount and Clement.

  • Someguy77

    This Eagles’ defense is just missing too many pieces right now to be effective right now.

    Looked a bit gassed that drive too.

    • xeynon

      Still might well have stopped them if not for that roughing penalty.

    • Insomniac

      We’re down 2 additional starters. Come on dude.

      • Someguy77

        Cox, Hicks, Darby. Best DL/pass rusher/best LB/best CB.

        Missing an awful lot of key pieces.

      • Someguy77

        My bad didn’t realize Cox was playing tonight.

    • Dude

      They show themselves in the foot. had 2 bad hits on Cam
      E: shot

    • dandynator

      Yeah goode vs mccaffrey ..

  • scratcherk

    get at least a FG here

  • meteorologist

    That was such a horrifically dumb roughing the passer there had to be some extenuating circumstance there…

    • CTbirdsguy

      bet they couldn’t hear the whistle…it was barely audible on the broadcast

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Need the offense to give our D a rest even if they can’t put up points.

  • A_T_G

    Mills and Barnett better be nervous right now. Their penalties made this close.

    • xmbk

      Bullshit penalties.

    Refs suck

  • John Luck Pickerd

    Bad decision. Low percentage play.

    • meteorologist

      Bad route

      • A_T_G

        Huh, huh. It’s funny to hear a meteorologist talking about routes.

        • meteorologist

          xD

    • CTbirdsguy

      Not the usual third down offense we see from them

  • sonofdman

    block in the back ignored

  • xeynon

    Of course there was no flag.

  • Dude

    Why Doug? Why?

    • meteorologist

      Why what?

  • Someguy77

    Could have called a penalty on that play.

    Looks like ‘last one to have the ball’ wins type of game.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      I’m with Jake the Make. Give Wentz 60+ seconds. I’ll take that chance.

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Gotta get a stop… but refs will do their best to decide the game

    • Ark87

      That penalty differential is outrageous. Panthers have not played that clean a game

  • Mac

    This game is rigged.

  • sonofdman

    They should be checking Morelli’s finances after this game.

    • Insomniac

      PenaltyGate

  • Insomniac

    Morelli probably won’t leave the stadium alive if we lose this game.

  • RC5000

    If we’re going to lose this, it’s because of poor officiating. Damn.

  • scratcherk

    our STs ace injured

  • CrackSammich

    Maragos now, too?

  • scratcherk

    COX UP

  • CrackSammich

    robinson looking for the pick there.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Good. A backbreaker wins the game.

    • meteorologist

      Rasul*

      • CrackSammich

        that was the next play.

        • meteorologist

          It was Rasul the first time too pretty sure

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Trying to jump the routr

  • meteorologist

    Does Rasul have the burst to jump these at the NFL level?

    • Someguy77

      No.

      • Donald Kalinowski

        Burst might be his best asset

        • Someguy77

          More the experience when to use it.

    • daveH

      Not as a rookie

  • scratcherk

    Fuck you refs

  • sonofdman

    Ref was on his game on that one.

  • daveH

    ..

  • scratcherk

    The ref threw a flag while rolling over

  • CrackSammich

    Was that just 7 in to block 4?

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Cam has too much time

  • scratcherk

    WTF IS GROWING IN HIS KNEEE

  • sonofdman

    Barnett with his first sack!

  • Insomniac

    Pick 6 please

  • scratcherk

    what no flag??

  • CrackSammich

    BARNETT FIRST SACK

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Really disappointing that these refs are letting Carolina be handsy with us but we can’t get the same callls

    • daveH

      We making their DBs look way too good regardless

  • Allen3000

    10/126 vs. 1/1

  • CrackSammich

    hamilton looks like he might have something

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Refs 8 Eagles 3

    Thought we’d get flagged for a late hit on QB.

  • sonofdman

    Jenkins has to make that tackle

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Burn ’em Rivera, burn ’em.

    • sonofdman

      Reid coaching tree!

  • daveH

    RT jumped offsides

    • TXEaglesFan

      Looked like peters

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Jenkins comes in so hot…

  • RC5000

    Jenkins doing his old Kurt Coleman.

  • CrackSammich

    fuck

  • sonofdman

    goddammit

  • scratcherk

    UGHHHH CATCH ITITITIITIT

  • Allen3000

    Catch that!

  • meteorologist

    Omg

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Lay out douglas

  • Someguy77

    Oh Butter Fingers!

  • scratcherk

    what no flag ref>?

  • CrackSammich

    diving for the flag.

  • sonofdman

    He fall over with no contact, but I really thought they were going to call PI

  • CTbirdsguy

    Has Means gotten a snap? Haven’t seen him but it looks like some fresh legs are necessary for that pass rush

    • CrackSammich

      Barnett is doing work out there. keep him in.

  • Allen3000

    Surprised they didn’t throw a flag on that uncatchable pass..

  • scratcherk

    THERE IT IS

  • sonofdman

    Try to take that one back you fuckin refs

    • Mac

      Upvote *1000

  • scratcherk

    Game blouses.

  • Checkdown Charlie

    MILLS

  • Allen3000

    Okay, okay. Still too much time to relax…

  • A_T_G

    Mills and Barnett with the redemption this drive.

  • Someguy77

    What was Newton thinking?!

    • meteorologist

      Wants to give us the game. Don’t second guess him just accept it!

    • A_T_G

      Probably felt bad about the refs.

  • CrackSammich

    basically need 2 first downs.

  • RC5000

    Mills you gotta run. Game isn’t over. Kinda like the unselfish thought though.

    • A_T_G

      Youngin trying to be smart, but not quite seeing it all.

    • xeynon

      You don’t want to fumble it right back. Getting possession back is worth at least 1.5 minutes of game time and Carolina’s remaining timeout.

      • RC5000

        What you do is run it further and then go down the same way you did only you get further own the field.

  • Donald Kalinowski

    I need to watch the original Blade Runner. Last time I fell asleep 10 minutes in.

    • CrackSammich

      definitely a slow burn.

  • teltschikfakeout88

    One first down will do it…

  • xeynon

    Mills might not be fast, but he is smart and a team player. Loved to see he immediately looked to go down with that rather than trying to return it.

  • Crus57

    How many times is Newton going to throw it to us? we’ve only caught 50% of them so far. Overrated.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Just enough times I hope.

    • meteorologist

      I just traded Newton and I started Agh over Funchess. This night is pretty Epic. Have Ertz in 2 leagues too

  • anon

    MILLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Now run the damn ball

  • Insomniac

    Thank god. I can unclench and my neighbors kids can stop googling curse words now.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Run the damn ball. Kill clock. Even if we punt they still need a TD.

    Blount!! Blount!! Blount!!

    DO NOT PASS THE BALL!!!!!!

    • Someguy77

      I go play action on 1st down and look for Ertz.

    • scratcherk

      dont pass the blounnnnnt

  • Someguy77

    I really thought the Panthers were going to get in the end zone that drive and it was up to Wentz to save the day.

  • Someguy77

    Time to Blount the Panthers out of this game.

  • Ark87

    God damn, ok blood pressure, go down a tad

    • scratcherk

      whiskey FTW

  • daveH

    Glad Chip ain’t here to show us how to duck up 3 min of game ending possession

  • ColorSgt

    3 plays to the 2 minutie warning

  • Tumtum

    1 1st down

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Exactly.

  • RC5000

    The Gods vindicating Mills and bad calls.

  • daveH

    Where’s German ??

    • Insomniac

      Either passed out drunk, drunk and on the verge of passing out, or passing out drunks.

      • daveH

        Don’t think he passes out. .

  • scratcherk

    love romo

  • meteorologist

    Ertz blocking. .. yikes

  • scratcherk

    gotta pass here no?

  • Someguy77
  • RC5000

    too much time left. get the first.

  • Ryan Rambo

    Good block Ertz!

  • Tumtum

    Nelson uncovered!!

  • sonofdman

    Shit. Gotta catch that

  • teltschikfakeout88

    What a cluster fuck

  • Dragon_Eagle

    NO. Bad Doug! Bad Doug! Go to your crate!!!

  • A_T_G

    No one covered Agholor.

  • xeynon

    Agholor was uncovered there.

    • Insomniac

      He only made one read

      • xeynon

        I saw it before the ball was snapped, Wentz could’ve too. He’ll learn.

        • Insomniac

          The Browns need a QB, you up for it?

          • scratcherk

            take some penicillin with you

          • xeynon

            Not saying I would’ve seen it if I were in Wentz’s position. But I’m not an NFL quarterback. 😉

    • anon

      that sucks, cant believe we blew that set of downs

  • meteorologist

    Mack10 down oh no

  • RC5000

    Carson rushed it. Dammit.

  • Insomniac

    Nooooooo back to clenching

  • scratcherk

    Mack hurt

  • Someguy77

    Not a good read by Wentz at all. He zeroed in on Ertz and just stuck with him.

  • CrackSammich

    MACK hurt…

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Mack with a hammy

    • meteorologist

      Hope so

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Just a cramp

  • RC5000

    This is not good giving them another chance.

  • teltschikfakeout88

    The fact that Carolina has the ball sucks

  • CrackSammich

    oh god. our hurt defense has gotta do this…

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Lets go D

  • Ark87

    Bad time to come up small

  • Tumtum

    We haven’t won a game like this im so long. I want it so bad.

    • Insomniac

      I just want to get out of the damn game. Too many injuries.

    • RC5000

      Did you forget 61 yarder?

      • Tumtum

        The Giants suck. This is a close game with a top team.

        • RC5000

          I guess. I’m not that impressed with Carolina tonight. They have a good front 7 defensively. The refs helped em big time.

  • sonofdman

    Downing that ball with 3 seconds before the 2 minute warning was very bad.

    • Tumtum

      Cut em

  • Dragon_Eagle

    We need Cox. One more time, big guy.

  • Westport_Johnny

    Hate to admit it but Romo’s commentary is solid. Quick to criticize downing of punt before 2:00.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      It doesn’t suck moose juice.

    • meteorologist

      Best commentator in the game. (Not a high bar AT ALL but still)

      • A_T_G

        Definitely the best former Cowboy. (Even lower bar.)

        • CrackSammich

          Still Ced Thornton.

        • xeynon

          Aikman’s decent too.

      • xeynon

        It’s either him or Collinsworth. They’re the only two who regularly teach me something new about the game.

        • John Luck Pickerd

          Wow, yeah, no I would not say Collinsworth is anything more than average. His ability to go from zero to incredibly annoying is astounding

          I can’t tell you how many times he tries to over analyze or just go in a completely different direction rather than properly break down a play. That may just be me though.

    • scratcherk

      esp comparing to chris fucking berman. that guy was the suckiest of sucks

    • Someguy77

      It has been very good and the TV broadcast has been solid tonight. Jim Nance is a great pro though.

    • truehaynes

      It really hurt me to actually like him. shit as a kid I made a collage of him getting lit up/throwing picks/fumbling holds but hes a damn good commentator. first time hearing him call a game live. I love the way he calls out the plays before they happen and hes been uncanny.

  • CTbirdsguy

    Well folks here we are again, coming into the game without too high of expectations, screaming at our tvs and ready to be crushed in a way we said we wouldn’t be

    • Dude

      Nothing about this game has been above the Eagles.

  • sonofdman

    damn

  • daveH

    My fone dyin. . See ya. .good luck us

  • sonofdman

    Bradham!

  • CrackSammich

    7 to block 4 again. better start dropping graham in coverage.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    AAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!@!!!!!

  • Allen3000

    Out to McCaffery I bet

  • scratcherk

    GAME BLOUSES

  • sonofdman

    IN-COM-PLETE

  • meteorologist

    Hahaaha hahahah Rasul Douglas with the butt slap on the ref!

    • scratcherk

      surprised it wasnt a penalty

  • Tumtum

    Woooooooo

  • sonofdman

    Holy Shit. We won.

  • A_T_G

    Douglas should not pat the official on the ass there.

  • teltschikfakeout88

    Victory formation

    • sonofdman

      Wentz is disrespecting the flag again.

    • meteorologist

      Heck yeah baby. Well earned

  • RC5000

    Phewww!

  • Checkdown Charlie

    What a game

  • Donald Kalinowski

    LOL Jenkins ducked under the pass

  • xeynon

    Good time for a McNabbesque worm burner.

  • Allen3000

    5-1 !!!! Feels great to say.

    • meteorologist

      So sweet

  • SeanofDead

    WOOOOOOHOOOOOOO

  • Insomniac

    Good game refs.

  • CrackSammich

    Another NFC win.

  • Someguy77

    Can’t remember the last time the Eagles won a physical game like this on the road against a very good opponent.

  • anon

    is this team good? Thoroughly outplayed carolina tonight.

    • Insomniac

      Yes. Without the refs this should have almost been a 2 possession game.

    • Tumtum

      I think we have to say as of right now they are really good. Lots of room to grow.

    • A_T_G

      Yup.

    • Someguy77

      I wouldn’t say ‘throughly outplayed’ Carolina tonight if you look at the stat sheet.

      Some dumb/bad penalties calls hurt them along with some ill-advised throws by Newton.

      • sonofdman

        Did you watch the game?

  • T_S_O_P

    Not to good for me. Woke for the second half at 4am our time, and had to rely on a slow drive chart feed .

  • Dude

    Howaboutit????!!!!

  • CrackSammich

    DUG IS WORST COACH EVR

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Again, to quote Sonofdman, “Holy Shit. We Won.”

  • A_T_G

    Hey guys…I think we are a good team.

  • truehaynes

    can i just say, fuck these refs

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Yes. Yes, you may. I will allow it.

    • teltschikfakeout88

      Yes you can

    • A_T_G

      You’ll probably get flagged for it.

    • 79mr2t

      Dillie, dillie

      • truehaynes

        brilliant

  • RC5000

    Dougie’s not so bad. They’re resilient!

    • xeynon

      Dougie is looking like Reid 2.0 right now. Seemingly underwhelming hire who turns out to be an excellent coach.

  • ColorSgt

    There should be two wins in this game. One against the Panthers and one against the refs.

  • Tumtum

    Night gents. WE WON!!!

    • meteorologist

      Enjoy it!

    • Ark87

      I struggle to sleep after games like this, I need to drink more

      • Howie Littlefinger

        WAY too hyped to sleep!

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    1 penalty 1 yard for the Panthers. Is that a glitch??

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I am going to be so fucking obnoxious for the next 10 days. Hehehehehehe!!!

  • Corry

    I thought the Birds played pretty well for having to play the Panthers AND the refs. 1 penalty for 1 yard? Really?

  • Dude

    5-1 is better than 4-2

    • CrackSammich

      #analytics

      • Dude

        I dig deep.

    • sonofdman

      Are you Doug’s analytics guy?

      • Dude

        Go for it!

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Check the math.

  • Ark87

    God that was stressful, felt thoroughly convinced the birds showed themselves to be a better team. Not a flukey win

    • Dragon_Eagle

      Worth every second.

    • meteorologist

      So true. Didn’t feel flukey like the Pats win that year

  • RC5000

    I feel like that was good but kind of ugly at the same time.

  • Someguy77

    For all of the crap that Prescott gets on here, Newton is the one guy who consistently fails to impress me.

    If he isn’t the most overrated QB in the NFL, it is darn close.

    • xeynon

      Newton is an increadible talent but mistake-prone. Prescott is steady but unspectacular. Different types of flawed quarterbacks.

  • xeynon

    This team is 5-1 despite playing four road games already and suffering quite a few injuries to key players. Their only loss was on the road to quite possibly the best team in the NFL, and they were in the game until the fourth quarter.

    It’s safe to say they’re pretty good.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    And the 10 day break is going to help. We need to get fucking healthy.

    • sonofdman

      11 days. We play on Monday night against Washington right?

      • Howie Littlefinger

        and its at home 🙂

  • Howie Littlefinger

    Man the refs must be heartbroken after not being able to close this game out for the Panthers.

    Eagles should have won by 14

    • A_T_G

      It’s a team game. You can expect the refs to do it on their own.

      • Howie Littlefinger

        HA

        some sore armed zebras tomorrow for sure

  • Insomniac

    The good: we won
    The bad: refs were really trying to screw us over.
    The ugly: Hicks, Jernigan, and Hollins were injured.

    • CrackSammich

      and graham. and maragos. and bradham.

      • Insomniac

        Graham returned to the game didn’t he? Bradham seems like he just got shook up. Not sure about what happened to Maragos

  • Someguy77

    Going to need to the lengthy layoff to heal up. A lot of injuries and walking wounded after this physical game.

    • Ark87

      Don’t know too many 11 day injuries, but hopefully most of ours fall in that category

  • sonofdman

    A_T_G, did you start Carson or Cam?

    • A_T_G

      Carson was the right call.

      • sonofdman

        Nice!

      • A_T_G

        I did not make the right call.

        • sonofdman

          Oh, that sucks.

          • A_T_G

            Eh, I’m not sad right now.

        • meteorologist

          LOOOOL

        • Howie Littlefinger

          U hedged and we won so…

          Thanks

          • A_T_G

            I was back and forth. Johnson being out pushed me over the edge.

        • truehaynes

          had to be close. he had that rushing td and 70 rushing yards.

      • meteorologist

        Nice

        • meteorologist

          And bold

    • scratcherk

      how did cam score more fantasy points than carson/

      • Crus57

        rushing TD?

      • A_T_G

        He did not.

        • scratcherk

          in our league cam had 22.07 and carson 19.90

          • A_T_G

            Our league has punishing scoring for turnovers. 12.83 to 17.90

      • Howie Littlefinger

        PFF says he played better too

        (probably)

      • truehaynes

        just said below. rushing td is 6 and passing is 4. thats plus two to cam. minus 4 from wentz ts. plus 7 from rushing yards. -6 from ints. oh and wentz had the fumble lost

  • Howie Littlefinger

    I have Wentzlmania. Whatcha gonna do brother

  • Insomniac

    Bradham balled out but the game ball has to go to our CBs. We’re not giving that game without the picks.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      We’re not getting those picks with out pressure from the Dline.

      • Howie Littlefinger

        Those aren’t corners without line pressure lol

        Razul was good tho

  • Dragon_Eagle

    OK. So of all the accolades you could throw at this team right now. Here’s the one that really matters in my mind (with Wentz’s 2nd year leap coming in a close second).

    This team has performed DESPITE injuries to key players and many players. Our depth, which I thought sucked, has overperformed. That is the mark of excellent coaching (see, Patriots, New England and Belichick, Bill).

    • Ark87

      On the road to boot, 1-7 on the road last year

    • Someguy77

      DL has carried them so far and Wentz has taken another step in his development.

      Coaching the last 4 games has been a much more balanced tempo and not leaned on Wentz to do everything.

      • xeynon

        Pederson makes the correct calls on things like fourth downs, manages the clock well, and changes his up his game plans from week to week to attack the opponent’s weaknesses. All things a really good coach does.

    • anon

      defense is playing out of his mind. And unlike during Kelly era we aren’t screwing them over with shitty 3 and outs

    • DJH

      Also second year of the scheme on both sides of the ball. Players less thinking more reacting

  • scratcherk

    PFF grade for Carson this week: 59.3

    • truehaynes

      actually?

      • scratcherk

        dunno

      • FairOaks

        No they take a bit to come out but it’s gotten easy to predict them

    • FairOaks

      3 TDs but he missed a wide open agholor so that cancels everything out

    • scratcherk

      Will be tied to Deshone Kizer, who will do an admirable job of clipboard holding

    • Insomniac

      PFF grade for Cam – 59.4

    • Dave

      With 4 dropped interceptions.

  • xeynon

    We don’t play again until the Monday after next. It’s like a mini bye week. We need it.

    • Will Ft. The Roots

      The only time I’ll be happy about Eagles not playing on Sunday

    • Crus57

      we have a 3 game lead in the division too, so whatever happens we’ll be top of the division when we play next

  • Donald Kalinowski

    I HAVE TO WAKE UP IN 4 HOURS TO GET TO WORK BUT I DON’T CARE

  • Someguy77
  • Howie Littlefinger

    That run D is playoff ready.

    The pressure didn’t seem to be very consistent in the 4th.

    I’m not a fan of the full line substitutions on defense.

    a slant to Jeffrey should work 99% of the time

    • Someguy77

      Slant to Jeffrey is more like Sex Panther’s effectiveness:

      “They’ve done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.”

      Wentz has made some really nice throws this year on those intermediate slant routes.

      • xeynon

        Wentz throws the slant as well as any QB in the league already.

        • Howie Littlefinger

          I’m more thinking Jeffrey will snag those most times.

          Whats clear is the best has yet to be seen on either side of the ball

    • RC5000

      They put a lot of pressure on Newton considering they seemed to be out there a lot in 4th. I can’t complain about the DL or D in this game much.

      • Howie Littlefinger

        I’m not complaining. They definitely played well. I meant up the middle wasn’t as much pressure. I did notice the Chip blocks

    • xeynon

      The Panthers went max protect or kept guys in to chip a LOT in the fourth quarter. Romo pointed it out several times.

  • Will Ft. The Roots

    Beat the team in blue and the one in Black n White today

  • Jernst

    Kendricks had 17 tackles…jesus

    • xeynon

      Kendricks has been much better this year. Still flies to the ball and hits like a truck, but less overruning plays and getting lost in coverage.

      • Jernst

        He’s been awesome throughout preseason and all season. This is the guy we saw when we resigned him.

        • Someguy77

          Difference maker. He has the necessary physical attributes when healthy.

          He has showed it since the preseason and kept it going since then.

          When Hicks is out there, there is a very solid and underrated LBs corps. Best one the Eagles have had in a long, long time even if it lacks a clear Pro Bowl type player.

        • Ark87

          Yeah, the transition to becoming a veteran was critical for him. He has a 3 or so year window now with elite athleticism in his prime and veteran savvy where he can play at a probowl level.

  • meteorologist
  • Dave

    I’m excited not only for the win, but I now have the next 2 Sundays to actually get stuff done around the house, uh, I mean play golf.

    • Crus57

      to play golf around the house, that’s what you meant right?

      • Dave

        If it entails being in the Poconos with a beer in my hand on a golf course, sure.

        • BC1968

          Can you get a birdie from your living room?

  • D3FB

    Vaitai played pretty well outside of the first sack.

    • Insomniac

      We’re taking Connor Williams to replace him.

      • D3FB

        I’m not sure Williams is a T.

        I’ve been told he’s going to come in short. Like he’s maybe 6’4

        • Insomniac

          Great, he can replace Wis and Vaitai at the same time

          • D3FB

            I’m all for our top two picks being a T and G.

            I just don’t think it absolutely has to be.

          • Insomniac

            Same. I’d put WR in there as well.

    • Ark87

      Our blocking schemes were whacky, never seen so many people get free runs into our backfield that weren’t screens.

      • D3FB

        lots of double A-gap stuff. It’s a bitch.

        • Ark87

          lots of free runs off the edge too, not defensive ends at least, but they showed a lot of that pressure, got to get that picked up. But that’s hard to do on the road with the crowd into it, admittedly

          • D3FB

            Part of it is Barner and Blount are bad in pass pro.

            With them causing confusion with their blitz games it was alot of slide protection but the RBs just weren’t getting enough of a block.

          • BC1968

            That’s something you’re either bad or good or are there players who have gotten better as their careers went along? Eagles’ players specifically you can think of? RB’s

          • D3FB

            Smallwood has made major strides this year.

            It’s a learned skill. Most college RBs are pretty bad at it coming into the league. The two most important aspects are
            1. technique but the bigger issue for most is
            2. wanting to do it. rb’s are divas and stepping up and getting popped in the mouth by a guy who is oftentimes bigger than you with a head of steam isn’t fun

          • unhinged

            Sproles did a classic pickup, neutralized his guy and got a penalty. Was Morrelli doing that game?

      • RC5000

        They didn’t adjust well to blitzes play wise. I don’t really know why they couldn’t figure out too much how to beat it. Carson needs more experience?

        • FairOaks

          The backs and sometimes ertz were terrible at picking them up

          • BC1968

            The second down on that last drive. Then Wentz missed Ertz, two killer plays almost.

          • RC5000

            Yeah but there were times we simply didn’t have numbers too. They brought guys at last second. You want to get rid of the ball quickly and should have plays especially with Alshon who is good at contested catches and slants. Part of it is we don’t have a Sproles or Smallwood …a good receiving back .

    • xeynon

      Agreed.

    • D3FB

      The casual fan thinks this is on Vaitai. It’s not

      https://twitter.com/PatrickMCausey/status/918649200577048576

      • Someguy77

        Was Brooks supposed to realize there was a rusher on the edge and communicate with Vaitai before the play?

        • D3FB

          Nope. I’m 90% sure it’s big on big blocking.

          Thomas Davis was walked up on the line at the snap. So you’ve got everyone covered, RB goes backside and the guy off the edge is for Wentz to beat hot.

          • Someguy77

            Ok. Wentz doesn’t look right before the ball is snapped to check the line of scrimmage and Davis was likely out of his peripheral range.

          • D3FB

            No Davis was over top of Brooks. So the way the blocking scheme is designed is for Brooks to take Davis and Vaitai the DE and the outside guy is free.

            Because Davis lines up over the RG and then bails is why the DE gets doubled and it looks bad for Vaitai.

          • BC1968

            Blount had a horrible block on a blitz also.

          • D3FB

            He’s a really bad pass protector, especially for someone of his experience and size.

            Which is what made the personal foul for pancaking the dude hilarious.

          • BC1968

            You answered my other question, wordered if he’s usually that bad or just a bad play.

      • Howie Littlefinger

        I remember Smallwood not carrying out a fake to blitz pickup at least twice this year. Maybe its on RB???

        • D3FB

          They had 7 on the line (the two lined up over the G’s bailed) Barner is getting the guy on Wentz blindside.

          • Howie Littlefinger

            Ok yea see it right at the end.

  • DJH

    Barnett picked a great time for his first sack!

    • BC1968

      He also a nice hurry on the next serides I believe? He twisted Cam up.

    • RC5000

      Love how he atoned for his penalty…

      • Donald Kalinowski

        He didn’t atone for shit. The game could have been over much earlier.

        • RC5000

          I’m glad he was able to get to Newton late. If you’re not that’s your fn problem not mine Donald Dorkowski.

      • Will Ft. The Roots

        That Cam flop?

        • RC5000

          You can’t touch 95% of QBs after the whistle.

          • Will Ft. The Roots

            All he did was literally touched him. Cam made a vet play thats all….plus the refs were flag happy.

          • RC5000

            You haven’t seen how the NFL protects QBs.
            What league have you been following the past 5 or 10 years lol? They don’t care how much contact there is.

      • Guy Media

        What penalty, it was a bad call.

    • Someguy77

      That was all Hamilton on the LG who forced the play. Barnett just finished it.

      • BC1968

        Hamilton got Cam inside but it’s about Barnett’s hustle, he stayed with it. He actually never officially got him down until Hamilton finished up.

      • Ark87

        I was screaming for that hold on Hamilton, thank god Barnett stayed in the play and finished Hamilton’s work.

        D line was gassed at the end there. Started seeing guys go down and stay down. Even BG who is normally relentless stayed on the turf and wasn’t there for when the play got turned back inside.

    • P_P_K

      Clutch.

  • Sb2bowl

    He looks high as hell

  • CrackSammich

    Hicks walking without limp in locker room.

    • Howie Littlefinger

      U creepin

  • scratcherk

    Kuechly going out was huge. We were moving the ball much easier after

    • P_P_K

      Wrong post.

      • Howie Littlefinger

        I think Hicks and Graham and Maragos and Bradham and Darby and Johnson and Smallwood probably cancel out Kuechly

        • Howie Littlefinger

          SPROLES

          How did I forget him? Damn yea Sproles too lol

        • CTbirdsguy

          You’re right, but they were also missing at least Greg Olsen and Ryan Kalil

          • Howie Littlefinger

            Fuck them

            What I’m getting at is:

            I feel bad for NO team because of injuries. We had Joe FREAKING Walker in on ANOTHER goalie stand. We are the Walking dead. Injury bugged and still crushing ppl

        • BC1968

          Bradham’s really playing well.

  • Dave
  • meteorologist
    • RC5000

      LMAO! We still won despite Morelli and his crew.

    • Guy Media

      These refs need to be strung up.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Eagles 28 Panthers 23 Zebras 8

    • Guy Media

      FUCK these refs. I can’t wait until a few of them die so I can shit on their graves.

      • Will Ft. The Roots

        Bro…

        • Guy Media

          NO SALE. FUCK THEM

          • RC5000

            He probably doesn’t want to visualize that.

          • Guy Media

            That’s fair.

  • Insomniac

    Justin Hamilton will be on this team next year if he continues to flash like he did in this game. Unfortunately Honey Beau Beau might be the one that has to leave the DT rotation if the money isn’t right.

    • Guy Media

      I’m ok with that.

    • Donald Kalinowski

      I honestly had no idea who he was until today.

  • BC1968

    Not used to having a successful red zone offense. Ertz and Wentz, awesome. Even Agholor. Tired of those short fg’s we endured all these years.

    • xeynon

      The biggest thing is having a QB who can make pinpoint throws.

      Donovan was a borderline great QB, but that was never the strength of his game. And the guys we had between his departure and Wentz’s arrival either weren’t talented enough or had similar flaws (Vick).

  • Guy Media

    3 TDs / 0 INTs for a 110 rating vs. 1 TD / 3 INTS and a 48.5 rating…………..go F yourself “Superman!”

    • CrackSammich

      Yeah, but check those PFF scores.

      • Guy Media

        They can all F off as well!

    • BC1968

      “Superbaby “

  • wee2424

    I can’t wait to see what the DP and CW critics have to say now.

    • Howie Littlefinger

      They downed the ball with 2:03 left. they should have let the 2 min warning hit. They are clearly poorly coached

      OR

      These critics didn’t watch the game and cite penalty yards as a poorly disciplined and coached team

      • sonofdman

        Definitely the second one

  • Howie Littlefinger

    Cam Newton (POS):

    Keep Poutin’

    • Guy Media

      Yup!

      • Howie Littlefinger

        I hope I’m going to enjoy the PC. Arians press conference let me down last week. We stole his soul

    • Ark87

      Hope that lady mocks him.

      “hah, it’s funny to hear you talk about leadership…”

  • BC1968

    How great is it they have 11 days to rest plus a bye after 3 home games?

    • Ark87

      looking forward to Sunday. Love watching the birds play, don’t get me wrong, but it overshadows the rest of the day. Can’t wait to kick back with a beer, and smugly make fun of other teams secure with my win. King of the world

      • BC1968

        A day without high blood pressure knowing your team has the best record in the nfc no matter what happens? I’ll drink to that!

      • Fufina

        7 hours of RedZone is bliss. I love Eagles Sundays, but Redzone is fantastic way to watch football.

  • CTbirdsguy

    Anyone else still nerve wracked watching this baseball game rooting against the Nats?

    • Guy Media

      ha, yes.

    • truehaynes

      so im from DC and I root for the nats, caps, eagles and sixers. has a lot to do with iverson and dawkins/westbrook/mcnaab/JJ etc…

      • truehaynes

        and growing up in a house that didnt care about sports

      • CTbirdsguy

        nerve-wracked all the same then

        • truehaynes

          dont get nerves over baseball

        • truehaynes

          is that irrefutable though?

          • CTbirdsguy

            not with the looks we have on tv I don’t think…cant tell if the glove stays on him

          • truehaynes

            thats bullshit

          • CTbirdsguy

            really tough

          • CTbirdsguy

            oooooooh suck it

  • Nailed It!
    • CTbirdsguy

      That’s insane. I wonder if he’s called any other lopsided games

    • Ark87

      Oh Pete, you famous in Philly now. League better keep him out of Philly

      • Nailed It!

        Like how could a ref have this much hate toward philly!? It’s nuts!

    • Guy Media

      RETIRE PETE!

      • unhinged

        He’s probably from Brooklyn.

    • RC5000

      Hmmm maybe he’s betting on games or being paid off by syndicates.

    • Dragon_Eagle

      So, Pete. Exactly what is your relationship with Jerry Jones?

  • Ark87

    Nelson’s mentor: f’ing unstoppable.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Wow.

  • RC5000

    Kendricks 17 tackles with 12 solos according to ESPN.

  • nickross23

    Real glad Cam missed that receiver in the flat on right side of the field on 3rd and 1 cuz guy was naked open lol.. great win

  • nickross23

    Fun fact.. the eagles are the only team in NFL history to beat 2 teams at once… Carolina and the refs at the same damn time! Greatest team ever lol

  • daveH

    Wu TANG !!

  • RC5000

    I’m impressed with this team’s energy. We don’t seem to be flat much at all this year. Winning helps.

  • Ark87

    Well gents, the post win frenzy is finally wearing off, I think I can finally get some sleep. Happy Friday!

  • ChoTime

    Damn, this looked like an entertaining game, but I missed it. How did the boys look?

    • Guy Media

      Sloppy, but strong. Refs were horrible and kept Carolina in the game. But a great win to get on the road. D tore it up on run d and made Carolina earn every yard.

      • RC5000

        The D line was also in Newton’s face most of the game and Bradham was excellent.

    • D3FB

      B+ game. Defense an A- Offense a B.

      Refs were comically bad. Not in a whiny fan way but in a legit someone suspend these guys way.

      Not our best effort, inuries piled up, short week, on the road, against a legit team. And they found a way to win.

    • unhinged

      Fletcher Cox was backing up a center and a guard all night.

    • D3FB

      And Carson had a straight up p0rN drive.

    • RC5000

      Kuechly getting knocked out of the game was big but Hicks went out too.

    • Mr. Magee

      Pretty good… Not the best game from our offense, but Panthers D is pretty good. And Cam helped us out on the other side of the ball 🙂

    • daveH

      Peterson with a great leadership call to go for the 2pt conversion. . Great job by the D heading into the half to stave off pts. Bradham & Kendricks on fire. . We stayed relentless despite some iffy calls .. Cam is great but he waves off teammates to go to the tv camera to celebrate by himself whereas AGs gave it to Kelce to spike .. panthers also determined to eagle wave any chance they could for some strange reason

  • unhinged

    Did Torrey Smith play? I saw him on the sideline, but I don’t think he touched the ball.

    • Insomniac

      He had one catch in the first quarter and I think that was it.

    • D3FB

      He mixed in and out but from pretty early in the game they were putting Hollins and Johnson out there
