Gameday – PHI at DAL

Posted: November 19th, 2017 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 939 Comments »

Less than an hour to go. The inactives are in.

No shockers for the Eagles. Beatty and Ellerbe are new and still learning the playbook. Smallwood has fallen behind Clement and Ajayi.

All the drama about Tyron Smith is over. He is out. Lee and Heath are defensive starters that will miss the game.

Advantage Eagles.

*****

I am curious to see how the Eagles defend Prescott the runner. He is good in short yardage, goal line and Red Zone situations. You have to account for him. The Eagles had some issues with Alex Smith and Cam Newton. They need to learn from that and play better against Dak.

*****

I re-watched most of the game from Dallas last year. It is amazing how different Nelson Agholor is. He looks physically different. We certainly know he’s playing a lot better.

I will not miss watching Leodis McKelvin try to shut down Dez Bryant. What a mismatch.

Bennie Logan missed that game due to injury. You had Graham-Cox-Allen-Barwin as the starters. Smith-Vaeao-Curry were the backups. The DL is better and deeper this year. The Dallas OL has a major challenge ahead of them.

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Let’s go Birds!!!

    • TO BLACKS

      Go where?

  • Dave

    Regardless how the defense plays, if the offensive line can handle the Dallas defensive line stunts, the offense will have a big day.

    Looks like Darby is starting at RCB and Mills will remain at LCB.

  • Chris Lindeman

    Can’t help their left tackle and stop Cox and Jernigan up the middle. This could hopefully get ugly.

    Here come the pain.

  • DJH

    From what I’ve seen of the guys via video pre game, they’re not gonna come out flat. They’re hyped!!!

  • scratcherk

    Drink of choice — old fashioned with Basils. What yall drinking?

    • Chris Lindeman

      Ol Mil

    • daveH

      Coffee, trying to relax from how hyped up i am

  • meteorologist

    https://twitter.com/Jeff_McLane/status/932419297661603840

    Wow Mills is playing so well he bumps Darby over!

    • Duracell

      I prefer this.

    • scratcherk

      or darby is more versatile, either way, thats good

      • meteorologist

        Yeah either way looks good for Mills

  • scratcherk

    well thats unfortunate.

    • daveH

      What i miss already ??

      • scratcherk

        61 yard return

        • daveH

          Sheeeeeeyat .. didn’t realise i had pause duh

  • Insomniac

    That’s not a good starter

  • scratcherk

    BIG COX

  • scratcherk

    WAG THAT FUCKIN FINGER

    • daveH

      Im on delay .. just saw it .. really starting to LOVE that finger wag

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Good stop

    • meteorologist

      Mills is so good right now. And the symbiotic relationship with the DL on full display

  • scratcherk

    good stop by d, unfortunate lapse in kickoff coverage

  • Checkdown Charlie

    I hope crazy eyes takes care of that

  • Ark87

    Oh boy, NBC stream is splicing the spanish broadcast audio, going to be an interesting game

  • scratcherk

    they doing madden cam this game?

    • meteorologist

      No thank God

      • scratcherk

        kinda liked it

        • meteorologist

          Well I only saw a couple of minutes of it but didn’t like depth perception. Need to move cam upwards if ur gonna do that

  • meteorologist

    Hopefully Blount gets the “start” then Ajayi gets the load

  • scratcherk

    AGAIN AGAIN

  • scratcherk

    AJAYI

  • Checkdown Charlie

    The J train

  • scratcherk

    AJAJAJAJAJAJAJAYI

    • scratcherk

      (not sure if i spelled it right)

  • shah8

    Think this will be a high scoring affair?

    • A_T_G

      We will score enough for both of us, so yes.

  • scratcherk

    YES I LOVE THAT

  • scratcherk

    UH CLEARLY OFFSIDE

  • scratcherk

    POUND ITTTT

  • scratcherk

    BARNER TEH BURNER

  • scratcherk

    EAGLES EAGLES!!!!!!

  • Checkdown Charlie

    That drive was a thing of beauty

  • scratcherk

    keep agholor out of that celebration

  • scratcherk

    love wiz throwing him in

  • Dave

    M-e-t-h-o-d-i-c-a-l D-r-i-v-e

  • Ark87

    keep this up, run it down their throats! 44-3

  • daveH

    Im 2 minutes behind … SWEEET bock by Celek

  • nicolajNN

    That was two very impressive plays by Barner

    • meteorologist

      I’m surprised. Expected it to be Clement with the catch. Then expected Ajayi on the TD. showed unexpected hands and power

      • Dave

        Note to all ff players…do not start a Philly RB. You never know who is going to get the ball in the red zone.

  • shah8

    Dallas D is as bad as I expected. Only way to win for them is to outscore.

    • A_T_G

      That is an important part of winning, outscoring the opponent.

  • scratcherk

    I love how Wentz gets teh ball snapped quick on any questionable catch

  • truehaynes

    What a fucking catch. Media Mike what did you think?

  • scratcherk

    they gave it to barner so they could snap it quickly, Cris. What do i have to do to become a commentator

  • Donald Kalinowski

    Why are you shaking your head Garrett?

    • daveH

      My wife asked same thing

  • daveH

    Barner sweet catch. . Sweet mean running . Good for US !!!

  • meteorologist

    I want an Eagles Pats Superbowl

    • scratcherk

      No pats please.

    • RC5000

      I will take any opponent but I’m taking it a game at a time.

  • A Roy

    Well, that unclenches quite a few sphincters.

  • scratcherk

    whts with the short kickoffs

    • meteorologist

      They are usually better. See Patriots etc

  • scratcherk

    Joe Walker looks like he should be serving my sushi

  • scratcherk

    fuck this morris guy

  • scratcherk

    they are marching,

  • Checkdown Charlie

    lets go
    enough of this

  • scratcherk

    stop em.

  • Checkdown Charlie

    I have faith we will adjust

  • scratcherk

    nice tackle darby

  • truehaynes

    We’ve defended the read porely this season. Remember a few bad plays against in on cam

    • truehaynes

      And cousins

    • Insomniac

      There was also those BS refs not calling holds.

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Hold the girls to 3

  • Insomniac

    Gonna switch to a stream, it’s not fun trying not be a spoiler

  • truehaynes

    I want the freaking ball. Want more than 1 first quarter possession

  • scratcherk

    DARBYYYYYY

  • scratcherk

    nice stop,

  • scratcherk

    glad to have the darbs back

    • Insomniac

      woulda liked a pick but we’ll settle

  • Insomniac

    bend and don’t break

  • Donald Kalinowski

    Catch that next time Darby

    • Rob Jarratt

      I think he needs to grow two more inches in order to obey your command.

      • Ryan Rambo

        LMAO! Why did this make me bust out laughing?

  • Ryan Rambo

    I’ll trade 3 FG’s for 3 TD’s going into halftime.

  • daveH

    “Looked more offensive than defensive (interference )” .. i heard that

    • Ryan Rambo

      Yeah! Lol! So Shut tha’ hell up Collinsworth!!

    • Checkdown Charlie

      Jerry didnt put enough in the envrlope?

      • Crus57

        Legal fees took a bite out of the packet maybe

  • A_T_G

    With how well the corners have all played I didn’t think Darby coming back was that big of a deal. That play was notably better than the play we have seen this year, though. Welcome back, Darby.

    • scratcherk

      dude is talented.

  • Donald Kalinowski

    WTF that Joe Theismann commercial lol

  • meteorologist
  • scratcherk

    shut up cris

  • shah8

    A touchdown this drive will be very hard for Dallas to cope with.

  • daveH

    Jeeeesch.. no need to have CW running

  • scratcherk

    nice catch, took a shot.

  • shah8

    Throw the damned ball away, man.

    • A_T_G

      On third down at midfield? Nah, let him create there.

      • shah8

        You saw that he almost had the ball stripped from behind?

        • A_T_G

          Yep, nature of a playmaker QB.

  • Ark87

    Too many throws that drive. We need to run all over these scrubs.

    • scratcherk

      lets not overthink this

    • daveH

      4 immediate upvotes says it all

      • daveH

        Er, 6

  • Ryan Rambo

    Is Ajayi hurt?? I saw him shaking his wrist on the sideline after that 1st series and haven’t seen him since.

  • Fufina

    Would have gone for it on 4th and 6 tbh.

  • Checkdown Charlie

    3 and out time

    • Donald Kalinowski

      Nah

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Sweet

  • scratcherk

    FUCK YEA

  • truehaynes

    There we go

  • scratcherk

    YESSSSSS

  • A Roy

    Lotta cheers for that int.

  • shah8

    heh, got the ball back!

  • Ryan Rambo

    Ok he’s back. Whew!

  • Donald Kalinowski

    That’s a weird stat to come up so quickly

  • daveH

    Nice 1 handed grab by us on the sideline ..who dat 54 …

    • daveH

      KBH, .. ok I’m ok having to check on his #

  • FairOaks

    Jenkins tipped that INT

  • Insomniac

    gotta get 7 here

  • scratcherk

    Know your role, blount

  • scratcherk

    Collinsworth loves him some Dak

    • Ryan Rambo

      Yeah. Poor brave Dakky Dak!

  • Ryan Rambo

    Fucking Elliot

  • shah8

    Eeeeeh, wentz isn’t playing as well as he has been recently. What’s up?

    • Ryan Rambo

      He’ll settle down.

    • A Roy

      First half after a bye.

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Uh oh

  • scratcherk

    ruh oh

  • shah8

    what? I missed the missed field goal!

    • daveH

      But saved a TD, he is still +4

  • Insomniac

    oh no jake the make

  • Iskar36

    Can NOT do that. Coming away with 0 points is rough

  • Tumtum

    Hope jake isnt hurting from that hit he made…

    • meteorologist

      Wasn’t it Wentz hurt?

      • Tumtum

        You dont see kicks like that for no reason.

        • meteorologist

          Oh I see now

  • Ark87

    yikes

  • Ryan Rambo

    Wentz to the medical tent.

    • Tumtum

      No bueno

  • Patrick

    Playoff teams punish turnovers. That just wasn’t good enough, even AT a div. rival. Way to sloppy coming of a bye too.

  • scratcherk

    are they still having issues with the long snapper/

  • Ark87

    This turned frightening fast

  • Crus57

    Funny that Dak takes a shot to the jaw and there’s no hint of checking for concussion, Wentz takes a knee to the head and he’s in the tent.

  • Dave

    Eli has a 5th string WR make a miraculous catch, Ags drops a TD and tries to blame it on pass interference.

    • scratcherk

      it was a terrible pass to be fair

    • Insomniac

      You gotta remember that he just recently found his hands again

    • A_T_G

      It was underthrown.

      • Dave

        It clunked off his hands…should have been caught.

        • Insomniac

          he had to reach for it

          • Dave

            What about that one? Clunked number 2.

          • Insomniac

            He’s still adjusting to having hands

  • nicolajNN

    Jimmy Bama saying Wentz is out of tent, with tablet, seems fine

    • scratcherk

      maybe he needed to pee.

    • Insomniac

      had to readjust his jock strap

  • Donald Kalinowski

    Poor guy from Stranger Things not only got murdered but his wife also had a miscarriage.

    • scratcherk

      who

      • Donald Kalinowski

        The owner of the diner who helped out Eleven

        • scratcherk

          in real life? im confused

          • Donald Kalinowski

            No there was a promo for an NBC TV show where his wife has a miscarriage.

          • scratcherk

            gotcha

  • scratcherk

    nice d robinson

  • scratcherk

    love having pat back in the slot

  • RC5000

    gotta stay away from 3rd and longs.

  • Ark87

    Good thing Wentz got out of the tent quick because, ya know, defense

  • scratcherk

    lets get back to the run

    • daveH

      Yeah some mean Clement runs

  • daveH

    Uhm, sorry Ags

  • scratcherk

    no flag?

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Too many long balls

  • RC5000

    Where’s the run?

  • A_T_G

    Not a great pass there, either. Nerves getting to Wentz?

    • meteorologist

      Doubt that. As tough as he is?

      • meteorologist

        And as aggressive a throw that was?

    • RC5000

      Nobody’s getting open and they need to run.

  • Dave

    Note to Wentz, if you want to lose this game, stop throwing to Ags.

    • scratcherk

      double negative?

  • scratcherk

    great tackle

  • TomATL

    crappy play call

  • Crus57

    I’d like it if we got a first down or two before we went deep, get some rhythm burn some clock wear down the Cowboys.

  • Tumtum

    Did I hear that right? That guys name is Taco?

    • meteorologist

      Yes he was a first round pick…

    • FairOaks

      Given name Vidauntae

    • scratcherk

      his son’s name is tacquito.

      • daveH

        Wife’s name is taco .. ooooooh no yoooo didn’t

    • A_T_G

      It’s a nickname. It is short for Beef Taco Combo Platter.

      • daveH

        Winner.

  • shah8

    Playing like this, Vikings would beat the Eagles. Maybe even with Keenum, but I’d doubt that. Keenum probably would meltdown with the sort of pressure and coverage I’m seeing.

    • shah8

      Eagles secondary is playing so much better than I ever expected from them. Thought the frontline would be carrying the weight…

    • meteorologist

      Vikings WRs are SO good they elevate any QB they have

  • daveH

    Cooogar Hill .. nice takle

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Wheres the run Pederson

  • scratcherk

    run the ball andy.

  • scratcherk

    love the lick on dez

    • Donald Kalinowski

      It made me a bit nervous

  • shah8

    Prescott playing poorly, too!

  • RC5000

    Mills sacrificing his body, love it!

  • scratcherk

    RUN TEH BALL

  • Insomniac

    So..both offenses are sucking right now

    • nicolajNN

      Makes it really bad that our ST is poo so far

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Now run the ball numbnuts

  • Ryan Rambo

    Mack Hollins time!!

  • RC5000

    Little outs been there all night.

  • Ark87

    Never noticed it before but Sean Lee has some of the Jay Cutler sideline vibe going on

    • Checkdown Charlie

      thought the same thing

  • TomATL

    That’s the wrong time to run a draw. Jam it down their throats.

  • Gary Barnes

    Defense doing its job….hopefully the offense will wake up soon. Good first drive, but nada since then. That drive and missed FG after the turnover was pathetic. Cannot let the Cowboys hang around, Eagles must execute better

  • scratcherk

    the CB was holding hands iwth jeffreyt here

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Come on O

  • Donald Kalinowski

    THAT WAS DPI

  • Gary Barnes

    Wentz erratic with his accuracy so far tonight, got to be better!

    • RC5000

      He’s off but he needs WRs to get open too sooner. Jeffery was open there but he felt like he had to get rid of it.

  • Ryan Rambo

    Ok can we get Ertz going? I wonder if he’s still slowed by that hammy.

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Nice kick Donny

  • RC5000

    61 yard punt!

    • daveH

      Very valuable arched bounce back into play

  • meteorologist
    • scratcherk

      ugh.

      • scratcherk

        at least we have sturgis on IR

        • Checkdown Charlie

          whe is he ready

          • Checkdown Charlie

            when

          • scratcherk

            i think he’s ready if we wanted to bring him back

    • Insomniac

      Doug is such a kind coach. He’s getting Wentz to not score so Jake won’t miss anything.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Run the damn ball Doug!!!!

  • A_T_G

    Okay, time to start rolling. I am running out of seats to move to in my living room.

    • Ark87

      See as it gets worse, just slowly go younger, sit on the floor, then move closer and closer the worse, then slowly revert to the fetal position if things don’t improve

  • scratcherk

    LOVE HOW BARNETT FINISHES

  • daveH

    Sudden newfound respect for EMMMMMMET SMIIIIITH. DAMN

  • meteorologist

    Way to finish rook!

  • shah8

    Dallas O is pathetic.

    • Insomniac

      So is ours right now

      • shah8

        We gotta short field, now. Let’s make a field goal this time…just to get that motor running?

  • scratcherk

    bell just tackling people.

  • meteorologist

    Patrick Robinson Jalen Mills and Ron Darby… So amazingly good

    • scratcherk

      who woulda thunnk

  • scratcherk

    FUCK YEA

  • A_T_G

    It is like a punt…but it feels better.

    • scratcherk

      a shankopotamous

  • Gary Barnes

    Another INT! Defense definitely doing their part….time for the offense to ram it down their throat and score 7. Sweep the leg!!

  • Howie Littlefinger

    so Oline can tackle now when they play for dallas lol

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Now make them pay

  • meteorologist

    It was a smart route against our 3rd down d, just an underthrow

  • TomATL

    Run the ball.

  • Insomniac

    Darby already our best CB?

    • Donald Kalinowski

      Actually I’d say Robinson right now

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Wentz bit off. Need to get a run game going.

  • shah8

    jaysus Wentz…

    • shah8

      everybody’s out of kilter.

      • shah8

        And Torrey Smith with the inexcusable drop, jeez.

  • daveH

    Emmet Smith anyone ??

    • Donald Kalinowski

      Good job on the wife

      • daveH

        Respekt.she’s gonna take him for everything and be in Jurrahs booth in a season or 2

  • Insomniac

    We have a three headed monster to fall back on, use it

  • scratcherk

    Goodness.

  • Gary Barnes

    I’m done with Smith. If they re-sign this ahole, I’m going to be po’ed. What a horrible drop

    • Insomniac

      I was done with him in week 6.

    • RC5000

      He’s signed but not really (no guaranteed money) through next year but they can and will cut him.

      • Donald Kalinowski

        Next year is not guaranteed.

  • Spooonius

    RUN THE BALL

    • daveH

      RTB WTF.

  • Insomniac

    Who kidnapped Doug during the bye????????

    • Howie Littlefinger

      Tryin to make andy happy, maybe?

      thats all I have for why we aren’t running now

      • Insomniac

        Wait Andy isn’t our HC right now? Coulda fooled me

  • daveH

    Great playing BarrrrRRRNET

  • Ark87

    Got a bad case of the Dropsies tonight

  • scratcherk

    WTF PLAYCALLING DOUG

    • FairOaks

      Would have been OK if Smith doesn’t drop that pass

      • scratcherk

        i mean the draw on 3/10

        • Ark87

          I get the feeling he was going to go for it on 4th down if he gets the 8 or so yards you expect when the defense is playing the sticks.

          but agreed, it’s frustrating

  • Tumtum

    Gettin real ugly here

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Wow wtf is going on

    • daveH

      They all must’ve peered directly into Emmet Smith’s wife’s eyes

      • Howie Littlefinger

        Fear boners

        • daveH

          Medusa effect

  • A_T_G

    Only the Cowboys RB is suspended, right? We are allowed to give it to our guys?

  • TomATL

    Just a terrible sequence of play calling. Don’t get cute. Do what got you to 8-1

    • meteorologist

      Is it cute just because it didn’t work?

      • TomATL

        No…but we’re not playing forward. Wentz rolling out left on first down vs. quick hit runs.

    • Donald Kalinowski

      The play to Celek would have gone for 7 yards. Bad pass by Wentz.
      The pass to Smith would have put them in FG range. Pathetic drop by Smith.

  • Tumtum

    Did Collins worth just credit Dallas D? Lol

    • Howie Littlefinger

      LMAO

      I know right. He’s been hating ALL night

      • Vink

        I know a lot of the guys on here don’t listen to them. But I’m listening… And regret it immensely. He needs to show at least a little bit of fairness. When the Eagles are on O he slobbers about Dallas D, when the Eagles are on D he gags on the cowgirls O.

        • Howie Littlefinger

          Yea its annoying but I feel like he universally comes across as an ass unless the audience member is also an ass.

          evens out a bit. Michaels was having none of it initially . We start rolling it will even out. Maybe make CC pout a bit too

  • Howie Littlefinger

    Eventually the drops will stop. Wentz needs to start audible to the run

  • Patrick

    Jesus fucking christ Doug. 2 weeks to prepare the gameplan and this is the kind of shit you’ve got lined up?

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Playaction, playaction oh we run on 3rd cmon man

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Thank God our D showed up tonight

  • scratcherk

    Mack needs to take Smith’s snaps

    • Insomniac

      I’ve been saying that for like a month now. Not sure why it won’t happen.

  • CTbirdsguy

    isn’t a draw on 3rd and 10 something you do with a lead and in your own end of the field…

    • nicolajNN

      I’m guessing they were hoping to get half and go for it on 4th?

  • DarthBanner

    Really trying to lose this game from the coach on down

  • Dave

    Can Torrey be benched for Mack now?

  • Ryan Rambo

    I’m looking for that one SPARK play that gets us another TD. I think they’ll start clicking immediately after it.

  • A_T_G

    I wonder if the Cowboys are lining up their defense to make the audiblesvand RPOs shift towards more throws?

  • meteorologist
    • scratcherk

      surprised they havent mentioned on tv

    • Masked Man

      Jake is in locker room undergoing concussion protocol per Howard Eskin on WIP. Hit his head early in the game. Grugier-Hill is the back up kick/punt guy. Eskin says he doesn’t look great warming up.

      • RC5000

        No FGs or XPs. With Jones, do they free kick on kickoffs?

        • Masked Man

          Jones is the holder. Can’t hold it and kick it.

    • Gary Barnes

      Could be a huge issue if this game comes down to a kick

  • Masked Man

    I would be trying to run the ball now. Have not seen enough of Ajayi. Have seen too many deep tosses to Torrey Smith. The hands are just not that reliable. Where’s Mack Hollins?

  • Ark87

    Jeez, even the first down markers are chasing the QB now, everyone wants a piece of the backup LT

  • Someguy77

    No offensive mojo for the Eagles in the first half from the head coach on down. Look like they are playing in a fog and failing to execute more so than Dallas D is doing a great job.

    • Ark87

      The first drive was all-world. Been awful since.

  • kajomo

    DP has done a horrible job play calling this week. Run theball, stay on schedule, and control TOP. That is our formula. Why change?

    • Insomniac

      Yup, we ran a somewhat balanced offense and now we’re just making Wentz bang his head against the wall.

    • xeynon

      They have stuffed our running game like a turkey so far.

      • kajomo

        1) we’ve barely run the ball outside the first series

        2) 2 of our limited runs were draws.

        We can do better. We just need to run it

  • scratcherk

    nice tackle by mills

  • meteorologist

    Tremendous play to get Dez down

  • A_T_G

    Mills isn’t intimidated by a stiff arm.

    • daveH

      I love Mills

  • daveH

    I’m thinking about getting a tat like Jenkins … wonder if it hurts

    • A Roy

      It’s not really a tat. It’s a brand.

      • daveH

        Mutilation. Scares me.

        • A Roy

          That particular one is relatively common. And I would guess it hurts. Alot.

  • shah8

    uh oh, more of Prescott’s look crisp and accurate…

    • xeynon

      Meh. He looks pretty pedestrian to me. Neither QB has good, at all.

  • Tumtum

    I havent seen a half this ugly simce last season..

    • meteorologist

      After the bye last season too!

      • Tumtum

        Yuck dont like hearing that. I cant recall that one luckily

  • Someguy77

    Boys are going at Mills a lot in the first half especially when he is on Bryant. I would too.

    Can’t cover him.

    • A_T_G

      Bryant is 4 for 26. At least 2 were against Darby.

      • Someguy77

        When Darby has been on Bryant, the coverage is tight. With Mills, it is a comfortable cushion every time.

        I am probably Mills biggest detractor on here yet. I just see a guy who is too slow to play outside and technique/experience can’t compensate.

    • Ark87

      Calm down Sir, They had 1 drive that wasn’t 3 and out until now

      • Someguy77

        Because of the two bad throws by Prescott but the dink and dunk has been effective enough for the Boys in the first half.

    • meteorologist

      Ehh. He broke up the first pass his way, has kept plays in front of him and made big hits and tackles

    • Tumtum

      9 targeta 4 catches..ok..

  • DarthBanner

    Certainly disturbing that in the most important game of the season thus far Doug’s paycalling has been terrible.

    • meteorologist

      Play calling is always “terrible” when it doesn’t work

      • Gary Barnes

        i.e. when it is not executed well, but doesn’t Wentz have the authority to audible at the line. Is he changing the calls?

        • meteorologist

          Haven’t heard any “kill kill!” Good catch!

    • xeynon

      Doug’s not the one misfiring on throws to open guys, whiffing on blocks, or dropping passes. I’d rank playcalling pretty far down the list of problems in this half.

      • Tumtum

        Blocking has been one area hard to critique today

  • scratcherk

    fuck.

    • xeynon

      Elliott shanking a 34 year older will ruin his folk hero status real quick if we lose this game.

      • daveH

        Was he concussed at the time?

  • Corry

    This is going to be pretty hard to win the game with Pederson having his head firmly planted in his own ass.

  • Ryan Rambo

    Pick 6 this!

  • daveH

    Here have some of these … sorry can’t find my French fries emoji

  • scratcherk

    ok we got time

  • meteorologist

    Love the trust Schwartz has in his CBs to bring the house

  • scratcherk

    patrick doing work

  • Gary Barnes

    Defense continues to hold the fort….for how long is unknown. Offense needs to get their shit together

  • scratcherk

    lets go in with the lead fellas.

    • Duracell

      No kicker will make that tough.

      • Ark87

        Will have to settle for only touchdowns from now on

  • scratcherk

    so do we not have a kicker now?

    • meteorologist

      Been posting about it. Nope

  • RC5000

    Need to go for TD here.

  • meteorologist

    That’s not exactly a heartwarming visual with the turkeys there NBC…

    • Insomniac

      Ham > Turkey.

  • Someguy77

    Boys have been notably more conservative this week with the offensive game plan.

    Keeping grinding with Morris between the tackles and giving what they can get outside. Coverage has been with Robinson and Darby.

  • Insomniac

    I hope bizarro Doug didn’t lose his ability to adjust at half time too

    • Someguy77

      Do you think it was like the Seinfeld episode where George didn’t sleep with any women and became increasingly more brilliant as time passed?

      Doug broke his celibacy streak during the bye and . . .

      • Insomniac

        Whatever it was it took Wentz’s mojo too

  • Tumtum

    I knew it!!!!

    • Tumtum

      Not that i like being right jake is hurt

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    2 turnovers only 7 points. Get your shit together O

  • RC5000

    Maybe we should run.

  • scratcherk

    how do other STs not at least practice some FGs for shits?

  • Gary Barnes

    RUN THE BALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Wtf is happening man!

  • scratcherk

    ok lets just go to half….

  • meteorologist

    We expected to come out flat after the bye

  • Gary Barnes

    So lucky that was not a INT, man was that ugly by Wentz….yikes

  • RC5000

    What the hell, run the clock out Doug.

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Jeesh Wentz WTF

  • Ark87

    Wow, double coverage on Ertz, someone else needs to step up

    • Howie Littlefinger

      Mack we need u to kick FGs and catch TDs

      • Ryan Rambo

        Funny but true.

  • xeynon

    Wentz has been uncharacteristically spotty in this game. Has been victimized by some egregious drops but is missing throws as well.

    • Howie Littlefinger

      Wonder what the split stats are after he went into the tent

  • shah8

    ok.

    we in danger.

  • Insomniac

    This is painful

  • DarthBanner

    Worst half this season. What the hell is doug doing? Run the damn ball! What happened to the balance?

  • meteorologist

    Ready for some 2nd half dominance

    • Howie Littlefinger

      if ur into that sort of thing i know a brothel

  • Howie Littlefinger

    what a crazy sunday

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    7-9 Cowgirls leading. BYE week n you come out like this.

  • DJH

    Wentz hasn’t been the same since taking those hits to he head. It is what it is.

    • Checkdown Charlie

      Running the ball will cure him

  • Chris Lindeman

    Why are we not running the football!!!!

  • Someguy77

    8 runs, 20 passes in the 1st half.

    The Force requires balance young Pederson . . .

    • Ark87

      yeah, that’s unacceptable. He wants to kick start the offense. But beating another team up in the trenches can really get those juices flowing

      • Someguy77

        It is dumb. It is like last year when the Eagles would struggle to run the ball in the first half and Pederson would get away it too quickly.

        If Went throws the balls 40+ times this game, it will be an L.

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Run the fkn ball Pederson. We limiting Cowgirls run but at least they keeping it balanced. Getting predictable.

  • A_T_G

    Division game against a desperate opponent at their house. We will impose our will on the shortly.

    • Corry

      Step 1: Doug Pederson removes his head from his ass.

      • Howie Littlefinger

        Remove smith while ur in there

        • dandynator

          yep hollins gotta be in there

  • daveH

    Siiiiiiick tsckle Clement !! Give HIM some runs

  • Masked Man

    Strange game. Looking for some adjustments. Just get out of town with a win.

    • Ryan Rambo

      Ya know??

  • xeynon

    Okay everyone: this was probably our worst half of the season, and we’re down 2. If our kicker doesn’t miss a chip shot FG, we’d have the lead.

    No reason to panic. They’ve been excellent at making in-game adjustments this year. They get the ball first in the second half. Let’s see how they do.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    Run the ball run the ball run the ball

  • Someguy77

    One of the things that strikes me about Brady/Brees after watching each is how underpowered there arms are to Wentz right now but how much more damn accurate they are and how much better touch they have on the intermediate routes.

    Brees in particular threw a deep ball today he had no business throwing that was underthrown and got picked early in the 1st quarter. If anything, Wentz overthrows that ball or put it on the sideline.

    Brees also made a few throws today including 2 short ones to Ingram that Wentz would really struggle to make too.

    • xeynon

      Wentz’s accuracy seems to come and go. The Cowboys have been successful at discombobulating him in this game.

  • ChoTime

    So team is not so good after byes?

    • xeynon

      Rust definitely looks like part of it. Credit the Cowboys though, their defense is playing well.

    • Howie Littlefinger

      1st half rust

      It’s been a hard game to enjoy. Hope Lane is telling them the abuse he will have to suffer if we don’t show up!

  • Howie Littlefinger

    Dak is whack

    Barnnett 2 sacks in 2nd half
    Ertz show up on 3rd down. Thats what superstars do
    Wentz ignore Pederson calls, make runs and points happen.
    Eagles win

  • SteveH

    I’m watching at a friends house, I don’t know what the fuck I’m watching but the Eagles better clean it the fuck up.

    • A_T_G

      It’s your fault?! Get home and back to your regular spot!

    • Ark87

      GO HOME!

      A) For superstitious reasons

      B) You won’t lose any friends by throwing furniture at their television

  • Ark87

    Uhg, can’t believe WFT folded so hard. Well I can, but the nerve!

  • Someguy77

    I had called this 27-23 earlier this week and figured the biggest reason the Eagles would win is because the Boys would struggle to outscore the Eagles.

    Eagles’ season low is 20 points vs Chiefs. Still don’t think the Boys score more than 13 points this half but it is hard to see the Eagles putting 20 points up this half too.

    Need a ‘win ugly’ game and a big play from the defense. Without Sproles, it takes away getting one from special teams especially on a punt.

  • HawaiianEagle

    Where is What is Jay

  • A_T_G

    Silver lining: our RBs are going to be fresh this half.

    • Insomniac

      Starving the dogs so they’re more hungry?

      • Ark87

        CRY HAVOC AND LET SLIP THE DOGS OF WAR!

  • scratcherk

    sucks. jake out for sure

  • scratcherk

    Dougie been reading comments section. Ajayi with carry

    • A_T_G

      That’s what they do at halftime, right?

  • scratcherk

    sneak for 1st

    • FairOaks

      or not

    • xeynon

      Or that.

  • sonofdman

    Gutsy call

  • scratcherk

    big balls doug.

  • A_T_G

    Not gunna lie, I wanted a run there.

    • scratcherk

      i was cursing his name until celek finished the process of the catch

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Playaction playaction

  • Insomniac

    Old reliable Celek

    • Someguy77

      For when you just need that first down . . . .reach for Celek.

  • xeynon

    Our receivers have not come up big in this game. Not getting open, and dropping it when they do.

    • Someguy77

      Jeffrey is getting a lot of one on one tonight and not getting much seperation.

      Agholor is doing his ‘invisible man’ routine pretty well too.

  • scratcherk

    great pass

  • Howie Littlefinger

    Ertz: Bad hamstring
    Jeffrey: Bad ankle
    Smith: Bad hands

    • Insomniac

      Ags: Bad

      • scratcherk

        Clement: Bad Mamajama

      • Someguy77

        Invisible more like it.

      • Howie Littlefinger

        Hes gettin hacked

        Smith is all season

    • RC5000

      Elliott: Bad head
      Peters: Bad knee
      Hicks: Bad achilles
      Sproles : Bad arm, knee
      Trump: Bad

  • A_T_G

    They are spying Wentz on third and 9?

  • scratcherk

    runnnnn

  • sonofdman

    YES!

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    There you go!!!

  • Someguy77

    Run Dougie! Run!

  • scratcherk

    Clement our lead rusher… just as I thought…

  • Insomniac

    Corey “Honda Accord” Clement

    • xeynon

      All he does is score touchdowns.

      Edit: and two point conversions.

      • Insomniac

        and convert 2 point conversions

    • GENETiC-FREAK

      haha like it. Not flashy just does the job lol

  • xeynon

    We need points. Don’t want this to be a close game at the end where being without a kicker becomes an issue.

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Pederson just realized Lee wasnt playing lol

  • Ark87

    see? It’s really that easy

  • meteorologist

    So do I pick up Clement in fantasy? Wtf?

  • scratcherk

    CLEMENT FTW

  • Checkdown Charlie

    It worked!!!

    • Donald Kalinowski

      I think it’s the first time I’ve seen a WR screen in the bunch formation executed for a score in the red zone. Usually it’s a diversion.

  • Ark87

    gotta say, hated it, but it worked

    • sonofdman

      Thinking the same thing

      • Donald Kalinowski

        Internal screams on the Celek 3rd-1 as well as the Clement pass

        • sonofdman

          Definitely

    • xeynon

      If the receivers just get a hat on somebody and don’t totally whiff on their blocks, it’s a VERY tough play to stop from gaining at least a few yards.

      • sonofdman

        You would think so, but I haven’t seen it work for us before.

        • xeynon

          Because our receivers haven’t correctly blocked it until now.

          • sonofdman

            true

    • FairOaks

      At least you only need two yards. Most of the time, a two yard pass play is underwhelming.

  • sonofdman

    Was that the first successful WR screen (even thought it was to a RB) under Doug?

    • scratcherk

      prob.

  • meteorologist

    The 2 point play call wasn’t cute? Oh wait it worked that’s why..

  • Someguy77

    Announcers in the Saints’ game said they are running as well as anybody he has seen in recent memory.

    Can’t disagree. 23 carries, 160 cards and that included Brees scramble for 2 yards and 2 ill-advised trick plays that lost 20 yards including a reverse to Ginn.

  • Corry

    So….When you don’t ask Wentz to throw it 82376458921509823745907321485 times in a half and actually run it, the offense moves pretty well? Shocking.

  • Tumtum

    Oh ok, there is our Birds.

  • A_T_G

    Story on The Athletic today about Clement “wanting it” more than anyone on the team. Putting in the work, dropping 16 pounds, best pass protector out of no where. Good for him. I thought he was just a preseason crush.

    • meteorologist

      Thanks for the heads up. I don’t look at The Athletic anymore except for the Joe banner articles

    • Howie Littlefinger

      I wanted to draft him in late rounds

      JD wouldn’t let me

    • Crus57

      In preseason he was one of those RBs who always found a way to gain yards, whether at the line or after contact. We’ve seen so many of those disappear in the regular season, seems Clement is here to stay.

    • Someguy77
    • Ark87

      I gotta admit, Clement was to me what Barner is to MM (or GM now). Dude that beats up on 3rd stringers in the preseason? No thanks, use that roster spot on someone else.

      I was wrong

      • Ark87

        Emergency edit, forgot the whole point of my comment. I was very wrong about my preseason feelings on clement

    • Duracell

      Yeah, I’m happy to be wrong on both him and Mills.

  • Howie Littlefinger

    Hoping the blessing in disguise: considering how many xps Elliot missed this could work

    Also now we can say our Elliot didn’t play either to idiot cowboy fans

  • Iskar36

    Honestly, I feel like Doug often succeeds in all the things Chip Kelly tried but failed to accomplish while here.

    • xeynon

      Chip had the brains and creativity but being a tyrannical asshole is tough to pull off in the NFL unless your name is Bill Belichick and you have five SB rings. College kids terrified of losing their scholarship will put up with that stuff, grown men won’t.

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Doug is brilliant now lol

  • xeynon

    Man, hell of a leg on Kamu there.

  • scratcherk

    Fipp is smart. now we have an extra coverage LB on kickoffs.

  • scratcherk

    come on…

  • Checkdown Charlie

    And now the D leaks

    • Howie Littlefinger

      U should see a doctor

      • sonofdman

        hee hee

  • Insomniac

    That was one ugly tackle

  • xeynon

    Jesus Christ, did our defense get the memo that Zeke isn’t playing?

  • CTbirdsguy

    bradham terrible on two straight plays

  • A_T_G

    Pick #3.

  • sonofdman

    Terrible pass 🙂

  • scratcherk

    nice throw dak

  • RC5000

    terrible Dak!

  • Howie Littlefinger

    Anyone else lol when the reporter asked Garrett what would happen in the 2nd half?

    • sonofdman

      “If we keep doing the same exact thing, hopefully we will get lucky and something better will happen.”

      • Howie Littlefinger

        To be fair thats a good assessment after watching Dak play tonight

      • Howie Littlefinger

        Also I was getting at she should ask lineman or even Jerral Jones

  • RobNE

    This is such a frustrating game to watch. And we are winning.

  • A_T_G

    That was a first down if Beasley had two more Beasley standing on his shoulders.

    • scratcherk

      lol

    • Someguy77

      I want to see one of the Eagles’ DL give Beasley an Atomic Wedgie.

    • sonofdman

      That would have been worth it just to see our defender hit the bottom Beasley and watch the other two fall.

    • Ark87

      listen, shame on Beasley for leaving his clones at home, Dak is the most accurate passer on the run, ever, so we they must have had a miscommunication on the clones.

    • xeynon

      What is it with the Cowboys and annoying white slot receivers? It looks like Switzer will take over the rule once Beasley gets concussioned out of the league.

  • GermanEagle

    My sincerest apologies.

    Just got back from the UK and had watched the 1st half on my DVR. I am now Live.

    Blame me for this ugly first half.

    • scratcherk

      i already did

    • sonofdman

      Get your shit together!

    • Insomniac

      We’re already blaming SteveH for it. You’re safe for this week.

      • Ark87

        Who I’m assuming felt the wrath and is getting home as soon as humanly possible

    • Donald Kalinowski

      Fuck you
      🙂

    • Checkdown Charlie

      Can you kick?

    • A_T_G

      We covered that already. Your membership suspension will be contingent on what beers you brought us.

  • Someguy77

    Been more a ‘Battle of the Punters’ than a ‘Battle of the Young Franchise QBs’ so far.

  • RC5000

    Wear em down…

  • scratcherk

    FUCK YEA

  • scratcherk

    FUCKKKKK YEA

  • sonofdman

    Damn. I thought he was gone

    • xeynon

      Cornerback is going to run most RBs down.

    • meteorologist

      That burst

  • Checkdown Charlie

    The J Train again

  • RC5000

    Thought he had a td!

    • FairOaks

      One well timed change of direction and he would have been

  • scratcherk

    no breather for ajayi

  • Insomniac

    It’s like we’re better when we run the ball

  • sonofdman

    run the ball

  • Corry

    RUN THE BALL DOUG….oh…thank you.

  • Howie Littlefinger

    Ajayi almost says goodbyeee

  • Someguy77

    Home run hitter. Blount just can’t do that.

  • RC5000

    gotta get in!

  • scratcherk

    can we hit a fg from here?

  • A_T_G

    Ertz needs a TD here.

    • A_T_G

      Well, I guess we will take it, but Ertz owes us one.

  • Someguy77

    I would have gone with Blount there and keep up the pounding it again. Bad play call.

  • scratcherk

    torrey smith caught it…

  • RC5000

    yes!

  • scratcherk

    WOOOOOOT!

  • Someguy77

    Field goals are for pussies!

  • sonofdman

    Good catch by Terry Smith. I did not expect to type that sentence.

    • scratcherk

      me neither, is he on the eagles?

      • sonofdman

        LOL. I just saw the typo. Whoever he is, Terry Smith probably has better hands than Torry.

    • xeynon

      Getting rid of Torry and replacing him with his softer handed twin brother Terry at halftime: another personnel masterstroke by Howie.

    • Insomniac

      I wasn’t expecting another Torrey Smith sighting. I had my eye out for the single Marcus Johnson sighting.

  • scratcherk

    WEEEE ROOLLLLLLIN

  • Corry

    A Torrey Smith sighting.

  • Ark87

    Kind of liking this no kicking field goals business

    • sonofdman

      This is fun!

      • daveH

        Stuff legendbuilding is made of

    • meteorologist

      Right! Forcing that aggression out of Doug again

    • Checkdown Charlie

      Could come in handy later in the season too

  • scratcherk

    who needs a kicker?

  • RC5000

    Like a FG & XP! 4 points on conversions!

  • shah8

    game’s over.

    • A_T_G

      I hope so, but I thanked the WFT about 4 hours ago.

  • A_T_G

    How demoralizing is it to have us jam the ball into the end zone twice in a row, repeatedly?

    • Corry

      I dunno, but we should probably keep doing it.

    • Howie Littlefinger

      And Wentz beat both allas best defenders on a 2pt conversion

  • Insomniac

    I like how they sent out Blount as a decoy

  • Someguy77

    That play was all Wentz.

  • GermanEagle

    Maybe I should watch all Eagles quarters live…

    • Someguy77

      Yes

    • Corry

      Clearly.

    • Checkdown Charlie

      No more Sunday trips

    • scratcherk

      you should really be required to at this point.

    • daveH

      From USA or London now ?

      • GermanEagle

        Back in Queens.

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Heart rate slowly coming down lol Keep it up boys. 1 play at a time.

    • scratcherk

      have another brewski.

      • Vink

        Exactly… Except It’s scotch!

        • scratcherk

          yum, whatcha drinkin

  • nicolajNN

    2 defensive holds
    2 scores
    Dallas should hold more often

  • Someguy77

    Another TD and this game is out of reach

  • Masked Man

    Ok. We are warmed up now. Ready for a second half rout!

  • truehaynes

    Ajayi has a weird gate in the open field. Right leg swings out every step

    • Tdoteaglefan

      I guess its common for a gate to swing

    • GENETiC-FREAK

      Yip i think with a sprinting coach he could really run with some speed.

    • daveH

      Was thinking maybe that’s why Miami was worried about his knee

  • RobNE

    Not sure why but game is becoming more enjoyable.

    • Crus57

      Earlier we had the wrong numbers, now we have the right numbers.

  • SteveH

    Bout fucking time that first half was torture.

  • scratcherk

    a freaking touchback!!

  • xeynon

    Okay: we’ve now got them down two scores. Hopefully this neuters that inside zone and quick one read throw crap they’re running and forces Dak to start taking deep drops behind Byron Bell.

  • Corry

    Kicking Linebackers…huh….maybe that’ll catch on.

    • Masked Man

      Not much hang time, but he wallops them!

    • xeynon

      I think he’s supplanted Mark Simoneau (kicked an extra point once) as the greatest kicking linebacker in Eagles history.

    • daveH

      He made a1 handed grab on the sideline earlier ..he is the Hui in a big way

  • Masked Man

    Kamu is drilling those kick offs, man!

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Is that fat ass Christy?

    • sonofdman

      yes

      • A_T_G

        As if I needed another reason to hate the Cowboys.

        • sonofdman

          Yup

        • sonofdman

          Or another reason to hate Christie.

          • daveH

            Love that he makes the trip for the loss

  • A_T_G

    Our LB just kicked a touchback.

    • Masked Man

      Reminds me of Ricky Roby back in the day.
      Big burly SOB kicking the ball.

  • RC5000

    Ha I thought Jones would free kick!

  • Ark87

    HOLY SHIT!

  • TO BLACKS

    THAT FAT FUCKING PIG CHRIS CHRISTIE IS SAD SITTING BEHIND JERRY JONES.

  • daveH

    My phone died. . What did i miss ?? Did Doug get back to the running Game as we ALL were begging for ??

    • scratcherk

      yessir, big run by ajayi

      • daveH

        I love Clement also

  • RC5000

    Gotta stop em.

  • Howie Littlefinger

    Pay that man

    • Donald Kalinowski

      paid*

  • A_T_G

    Nice Mills.

  • sonofdman

    stuffed his ass

  • RobNE

    now we are up can we just wallup Dak on one of these play actions.

    • Ryan Rambo

      Lets get 8 more first!

      • RobNE

        Deal

  • Ryan Rambo

    Good FUCKIN D!!!

    • Ryan Rambo

      “that’s what she said”

      • A_T_G

        Did you just lob a softball…to yourself?

        • Crus57

          That’s also what she said

        • Ryan Rambo

          Yesh!! Lol

      • scratcherk

        who exactly is “she” cuz she sounds awesome

  • A_T_G

    Big stop.

  • RC5000

    dALLas dOiN dUMb ShIt!

  • scratcherk

    timmy drove back a double team 2 yards…. crazy

  • truehaynes

    Jernigan destroys the double team

  • xeynon

    That’s why Jernigan was worth the big bucks. He held the point of attack and just stoned two offensive linemen singlehandedly on that play. Looking forward to watching him and Fletcher Cox play together over the coming years.

  • Donald Kalinowski

    They had two guys on one and couldn’t move him off the LOS. Incredible.

  • Ark87

    Now to run the ball down Dallas’ throats as we run up the score, as I began calling for 2 weeks ago

  • Insomniac

    The Jernigan trade was the move that got me the most hyped this offseason. Top 10 DT potential in our scheme and he sure as hell reached it.

  • scratcherk

    bad spot

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Lousy spot

    • A Roy

      Agree. Glad it didn’t matter.

    • FairOaks

      Went back and looked, he may have been short actually. Not a bad spot.

  • Dragon_Eagle

    This is better.

  • sonofdman

    Nice

  • scratcherk

    nice

  • A_T_G

    That was a “cool kid” slide.

    • FairOaks

      Nice stiffarm to start it too.

  • xeynon

    I love how decisively Clement runs. He plays faster than he is because he reads the blocks and just goes so quickly.

    • scratcherk

      he just gets yards.

      • Crus57

        He reminds me of Eldra Buckley, but with some burst and vision

        • scratcherk

          blast from the past.

  • GermanEagle

    I think I’ll go to bed and watch the 4th quarter on my DVR tomorrow..

    • Crus57

      Do you want to get shouted at? because this is how you get shouted at.

    • Masked Man

      no hey c’mon……

    • A Roy

      《Yawn》

    • Checkdown Charlie

      Dont you dare

    • FairOaks

      who has a chain?

    • A_T_G

      Bullshit you will.

  • RC5000

    Wentz has bad stats but he’s still the man. Has 79 RTG but the run always seems to help him get in rhythm.

  • Masked Man

    Right now 22 rushes for 160 yards which is almost 7.3 yards per rush.
    Go Eagles!

  • A_T_G

    I just finally decided I am comfortable to put the footrest up. I think we are okay here guys.

    • Crus57

      still a quarter to play, don’t get cocky.

    • scratcherk

      i moved to the chaise. it was key,

    • sonofdman

      One bad play and that footrest better come right back down

  • CTbirdsguy

    wow

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Nikce catch

  • meteorologist

    Where Wentz’s athleticism shines is his short area quickness (3 cone time)

  • shah8

    NOw…

    That was a WOW plays.

  • scratcherk

    mmmmm tasty

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Down their effin throat

  • Insomniac

    We’re breaking em down

  • scratcherk

    demoralize them dougie

  • daveH

    Siiiiiick 3rd & 2 conversion. . Ouch

  • A_T_G

    Hey, Howie. We just saw you typing an Iggles Blitz comment.

    • daveH

      Was that James Altucher in front of him ???

  • daveH

    Le Blount nice Le Run !!

  • xeynon

    Wentz with another classic Wentz demoralizer there, followed by the Blount hammer.

  • Someguy77

    Deploying the Blount battering ram!

  • sonofdman

    Holy Shit!

  • FairOaks

    wow ags

  • A_T_G

    AGHOLOR!!!!

  • scratcherk

    WHAAAAAT

  • Checkdown Charlie

    My man Ags

  • dandynator

    howie makin deals

    • meteorologist

      Thought that too. Howie is so good he penetrates even the trade deadline

    • daveH

      James Altucher messing with his head phones seat in front of Howie-do it

  • A_T_G

    Dammit.

  • RC5000

    Bummer

  • Someguy77

    The crowd buzz now on the radio audio feed has notably quieted down.

  • scratcherk

    darn.

  • Someguy77

    Agholor sighting!

  • A Roy

    Nope

  • xeynon

    Great play by Ags, too bad it won’t count.

  • Corry

    Well crap. Gotta go for it anyways.

  • Masked Man

    They will give Agholor the 1st down, not the TD. Nice 2nd effort though.

    • sonofdman

      His knee hit down behind the line. No first down

    • A_T_G

      Was it a first? I’ll take it. I thought it was going to be short.

      • Masked Man

        No it wasn’t, but Alshon just got the TD.

        • A_T_G

          I don’t know about that either…

    • A_T_G

      Or 5 yards short…

      • Masked Man

        My bad. 4th and 5.

  • RC5000

    197 yards rushing.

  • RC5000

    Dak 22.6 Rtg. 73 yards passing.

    • sonofdman

      Nice

  • sonofdman

    Great effin catch!

  • scratcherk

    WHAT A THROW AND CATCH

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Even better

  • Corry

    Oh. So that’s why we signed Jeffrey.

    • RC5000

      He’s been making plays lately.

  • sonofdman

    Not a TD

    • FairOaks

      not sure he was touched before he slid across line

      • sonofdman

        Good point. you are right

      • Ark87

        I look at it more as he didn’t secure possession until he went into the end zone, if that were the back of the endzone line and not the goal line it would be an incomplete pass

    • Corry

      First down at least.

  • A Roy

    Mymymy

  • Ark87

    THAT is what we got him for, finally seeing it

  • xeynon

    THAT is a stud wide receiver play.

  • Someguy77
  • scratcherk

    can i get a td for ajayi?

    • Insomniac

      No.

      • scratcherk

        fair.

      • Ryan Rambo

        You must be playing against him in FF!

  • Insomniac

    Playmaker to playmaker

  • meteorologist

    Why aren’t the announcers asking if he was touched down or not…

  • A_T_G

    Ertz? Paging Zach Ertz.

  • truehaynes

    Dak looks so sad 🙁

    • Masked Man

      Sad Sack Dak

    • xeynon

      We’re going to miss Manning Face when Eli retires. I’m glad we’ll have Dak Face to make up for it.

    • daveH

      Jurrah sad face better

      • Crus57

        not sure he has the sad face installed today does he? the ones he buys can’t do multiple expressions

        • daveH

          Ha!! Yes, it has a frown protection guarantee

  • scratcherk

    interesting.

  • A_T_G

    That looked painful.

  • Corry

    dammit Ertz.

    • xeynon

      Not ideal, but I’d rather he fumble there than going in for a critical TD.

    • RC5000

      He’s trying to hurry & get the ball across. That was ok…not ideal but you can live with it.

  • GermanEagle

    If that fumble turns the game around I will throw up in my mouth.

    • A_T_G

      Still a kickoff.

      • Masked Man

        “Kamu, Kamu, Kamu, Kamu……….”

    • scratcherk

      not sure how. grugier-hill can kick it another 15 yards. dont doubt him

    • RC5000

      Well if they had Jake it’d be 28-9 probably.

      • Ark87

        absolutely

      • sonofdman

        Probably 24-9

        • sonofdman

          They would have kicked the field goal on 4th and 5.

  • Howie Littlefinger

    stupid #11 what a dirty player

    • Masked Man

      Dak plays a clean game of football. lol.

      • Howie Littlefinger

        HES A SOUP MAN!

  • truehaynes

    I pray I never end up liking dak the way I have with romo

    • Crus57

      If it means he retires with no rings I’m fine with it.

      • truehaynes

        Touche

      • Donald Kalinowski

        I hope Romo comes back and wins a ring with another team.

        • sonofdman

          Fuck that. That means the Eagles don’t win that ring.

          • Donald Kalinowski

            Could play as backup to Wentz

          • sonofdman

            I’ll accept it.

    • dandynator

      love your prayers

  • Dragon_Eagle

    I’ll repeat this after the game. But thank the powers that be that Doug is not AR. We running the damn ball.

    • Masked Man

      2nd half adjustments!

      • meteorologist

        Knew we’d come out better this half

        • Masked Man

          Just had to warm up coming off that bye

  • A Roy

    Like any great QB, Dak is elevating the play of his team. They’ve scored significantly more than last week.

    • scratcherk

      never understood the dak love. every game i watch shows an above avg qb at best.

      • A Roy

        Two words. Dall Ass.

      • xeynon

        Watch him put up 200 yards in garbage time and the talking heads gush over him anyway.

        • Howie Littlefinger

          “Its a QBR league bra and Dak is where its at”

      • sonofdman

        I can’t believe they kept saying how great he played last week. He was terrible last week.

        • Crus57

          But it was so courageous how he kept fighting despite his terribleness though…

  • nicolajNN

    Remember Jason Garrett’s plan at halftime? It has kinda worked… for our offence

    • Howie Littlefinger

      It was a hell of a prediction I’ll clap to that

    • Duracell

      I missed it, what did he say?

  • SteveH

    Fuck Dak told you he’d start tossing picks when Zeke went out.

    • A_T_G

      Yep.

      You home now?

    • Duracell

      He’s been trying to toss them for a year and a half.

  • scratcherk

    timmy dancing.

    • Insomniac

      got that sack dance on point

  • scratcherk

    BOOYAAAAA

  • A_T_G

    Hope this stands…

    • sonofdman

      Fumble. it will stand!

  • sonofdman

    Hell Yeah!!!!

  • Checkdown Charlie

    If I had a hammer…..

  • A_T_G

    Yep, that’s a fumble.

  • GermanEagle

    GE still watching. 🙂

    • Checkdown Charlie

      Thank you Sir

      • GermanEagle

        You’re very welcome.

  • Masked Man

    Derek Barnett with the hit. Bradham with the return.

    • FairOaks

      Second sack for Barnett. Was wondering if he may be the no-Tyron-Smith beneficiary

  • Corry

    Barnett looks like a damn good pick.

    • A_T_G

      Better than having Bradford?

      • sonofdman

        🙂

      • Howie Littlefinger

        Best pro day ever lol

  • dandynator

    omg

  • Insomniac

    Bradham had a quiet night but he got us 6. I’ll give him a pass tonight.

  • RC5000

    Remember when we were worried about this one?

  • daveH

    LOVE LONG…. LOVE THE BRADHAM BICEP

  • truehaynes

    Let’s get to 50 with two more defensive tds

  • daveH

    Another nice sweet play by Barney

  • Ark87

    Jesus what the hell happened, take a bathroom break and I come back to this!

    • Howie Littlefinger

      Go back now, fly u fool

      • Ark87

        spending the rest of the night on the toilet it looks like

    • RobNE

      For the whole second half??

  • Howie Littlefinger

    This is what I was expecting.

  • truehaynes

    Is Barnett leading the team in sacks?

    • A Roy

      Think that counts as a FF.

      • Duracell

        They typically count as both.

      • FairOaks

        It does, but it’s a sack too.

    • Insomniac

      I think Graham still leads the team with like 5 or something

      • FairOaks

        Yep, but think he’s tied with Cox at 4.5 now.

      • FairOaks

        …and now Graham gets one, so up to 6.

  • dandynator

    guess what ? howie drafting another dl with the first next year #greatness

    • RC5000

      Already greatness on DL. OL is where they will probably go with 1st.

      • Someguy77

        Almost guaranteed to be an OL given Peters/Kelce/LG position.

        If it is a very late pick (32nd hopefully), then a G makes plenty of sense there.

    • Donald Kalinowski

      OT maybe even ILB

    • dandynator

      it was a howie joke , i know ot lb make most sense

  • ACViking

    Cowboys out-scored 47-0 in the 2nd half the past two games.

    But Dak ….

    • Howie Littlefinger

      QBR

      • Howie Littlefinger

        Quarterbackrunner

        watch his runs take over now

    • daveH

      The Wentz-Dak spread is widening

      • Howie Littlefinger

        It never really existed to any non biased view

        • daveH

          Well thepress freaky focused on it

  • A_T_G

    Still looking for that pick 6…

  • Someguy77

    So much for my close game prediction . . .

  • daveH

    Getting tackled by our kicker could now be hurtful

  • Someguy77

    Cowboys have done a great tumbleweed impression this half. Just dried up and blown away.

  • sonofdman

    Al Michaels just nailed it. “This is gonna look good on the stat sheet”

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Why play passive when we got the game. Marching up the field like nothing. I dont get that.

    • Crus57

      Stops the chance for a big play and a quick score I guess?

  • A_T_G

    Strong grip by Dak there.

    • GENETiC-FREAK

      From holding Zekes jock strap

  • xeynon

    Way to show that Lael Collins sucks too BG.

  • sonofdman

    Sweet!!!!!

  • Someguy77

    Appropriate Cowboys’ reaction to this 2nd half:

    https://cdn0.sbnation.com/imported_assets/824259/tony-romo-jerry-snub-h.gif

  • A_T_G

    Good look, Malcolm. That is pride.

  • truehaynes

    Can we just punt it and let dak go out and get his ass beat?

    • Insomniac

      Sure, put in the 2nd team first.

  • daveH

    I just rewinded for that freaky cool pull down thing all the D Linemen did after the brandon graham sack .. real cool

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Do they have 1 more drive in them?

    • RC5000

      I wouldn’t count on it.

    • daveH

      Foles does. .. fG attempt

      • nicolajNN

        I’ll allow it, but only if Foles tries the FG

  • Donald Kalinowski

    If there’s a penalty while the runner is in the end zone, shouldn’t it be a safety?

  • SteveH

    I fucking said it, I’ve been saying it, Dak ain’t shit.

    • GENETiC-FREAK

      Yip no Zeke he nothing.

    • xeynon

      In two games without Elliott and Smith, he’s taken 14 sacks and turned the ball over 6 times while putting up 16 points. That right there is a franchise QB.

  • scratcherk

    PFF Grades:

    Wentz: 32.2
    Dak: 99.9

    • Duracell

      I mean, the only gutsier performance I’ve seen than tonight is Dak last week…

      • scratcherk

        He is BRAVE

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Another TD boys. A beatdown so they cant sleep at night.

  • Someguy77
  • Donald Kalinowski

    I have to be at work in 5 hours and the team is up by 28 points… but I’m going to wath this out.

    • daveH

      Me too

    • Howie Littlefinger

      I bet most Philly fans will. We really are the best

      • RobNE

        Enjoying this is why we suffer thru other games/seasons. Have to savour this.

        • Howie Littlefinger

          So enjoyable seeing Dak get benched. Pretty sure we just killed another season

          these are some bad birds

    • GermanEagle

      Same here mate.

  • truehaynes

    Foles

  • Someguy77

    Scary thing is that the Eagles really that play that great in the 2nd half either.

    Boys’ defense just evaporated.

    • RC5000

      Eagles OL was much better.

    • Corry

      Play calling has been much better.

      • Someguy77

        Yeah they went more run heavy but that Ajayi run just seemed to take the life out of the Dallas defense.

  • RC5000

    I think Dp hid his game plan in the 1st half. Sly bugger.

    • A_T_G

      They were trying to push the boulder up the hill, we were pushing downhill. It was only a matter of time.

    • Donald Kalinowski

      I think it had more to do with Wentz playing like shit.

      • A_T_G

        I think the observation that he was off after the blow to the head was pretty spot on. Probably gave him a tub of smelling salts in the locker room.

        • Someguy77

          Walk-in fridge so he could accommodate to this natural North Dakota habitat at half time.

        • RC5000

          He wasn’t in rhythm either. The OL was much better in the 2nd half because the play calling sucked too.

      • RC5000

        They weren’t running and the OL wasn’t dominant.

      • RC5000

        His WRs weren’t getting open . He didn’t play great but he was waiting around a lot for receivers to get open.

  • Howie Littlefinger

    9-1

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Get the 1s off the field now. We got this,

  • Donald Kalinowski

    Jeez that tackle by Graham

  • Checkdown Charlie

    Nice tackle 24

  • sonofdman

    Pulled Dak!

  • Ark87

    Who!?

  • Donald Kalinowski

    Take Bradham out. He’s a really important piece of this D we can’t afford to lose

  • A_T_G

    Imagine running out the clock at home against a rival? Embarrassing.

    • Ark87

      So much for remembering the Alamo, Jerruh

      • A_T_G

        I mean, people say so-and-so gave up in that game, but they actually, literally stopped trying.

        • Ark87

          I wonder who carries the communications between the coaches, does Doug know they won’t call time outs?

  • Someguy77

    Merrill – ‘Dak took a beating tonight and the Cowboys are in trouble’

    Yup.

  • truehaynes

    Can someone make a gif of cartman drinking skip Bayless tears

  • Donald Kalinowski

    Didn’t realize Wentz had a tattoo

  • Donald Kalinowski

    WTF I WANT TO SEE FOLES.

    • RC5000

      Don’t need injuries.

  • daveH

    Destiny V swat the schit down

  • GENETiC-FREAK

    Dak asking for a timeout lol

  • scratcherk
    • truehaynes

      Had the same thought

    • dandynator

      dude that exacly what i thought when seeing him. Some evil dominator

  • oreofestar

    Are we back to the days that I have to stop watching the game for good things to happen

    • RobNE

      No they are now better than our jinxes

      • daveH

        Sys it all !!

    • daveH

      No they are now better than our jinxes
      Thanks RobNE (is that Nebraska or New England? )

  • Someguy77

    ‘E-A-G-L-E-S’ chants notably audible from the Eagles’ fans who are on the radio feed.

  • Ark87

    How is Garrett smiling?

    • sonofdman

      He is just think about how courageous Dak Prescott is.

    • Insomniac

      Fat paychecks.

    • daveH

      Same face surgeon as Jurrah

      • sonofdman

        LOL

    • daveH

      LeGarret is

    Good win guys. We were a little sloppy coming off the bye, with Steve out of position and GE playing slow, but we got things rolling. Take the night off, three worth while comments by 10AM tomorrow.

    • sonofdman

      Thanks coach!

    • scratcherk

      Strong work ATG, hit the ice bath

    • Howie Littlefinger

      Comment of the night but kinda selfish to only call out the star posters

      /controversy in the locker room

      • Crus57

        One gets upvotes we all get upvotes.

    • laeagle

      I was waiting to blast in with a surprise cogent summary, but the opportunity never came. It had to do with the way the game expressed itself.

      • A_T_G

        You will get your shot. We are all one sprained finger away from being called upon to post that key comment.

  • Crus57

    The Cowboys did not score a Touchdown. The Cowboys did not have a 100yd rusher (have we still not allowed one this year?). Dak had 145yds passing.

    • A_T_G

      Cowboys were shut out in the second half.

      • Masked Man

        A 30-0 shut out at that!

      • Bert’s Bells

        The Cowboys were basically eliminated from the playoffs.

  • Someguy77

    Lane Johnson – “We recognized we needed to run the ball in the 2nd half more and just came out and did it.”

    About sums up this game.

  • Ark87

    Turns out we didn’t need Jake Elliot

    • scratcherk

      hes a luxury not a necessity

  • A_T_G

    Referencing my first comment of the thread, we kinda made Dak look like Peterman.

    • Someguy77

      8 career INTs coming into tonight in 27 GS; 3 INTs tonight.

      • A_T_G

        Compared to Peterman’s day, Dak had one fewer turnover and the same number of TDs.

  • Corry

    Is this the first time running back committee has ever worked?

    • Fufina

      No, genuinely most SB winning teams over the last 10 years have been running back committee’s.

      • Corry

        Thinking about it, I think you’re right. The “lead back” type thing may be a thing of past.

        • Ark87

          Interestingly enough they talked about this in the Vikings game, the Vikings lost an absolute stud in Dalvin Cook, who was leading the league in rushing at the time, replaced him with the committee, and the team’s YPC and YPG actually went up. Don’t get me wrong, they’ll love to have him back next year. But the 1 back stuff is wildly overrated because it is so valuable in fantasy.

    • xeynon

      It’s not the first time it’s worked for the Eagles. The “three headed monster” of Duce, Buckhalter, and Westbrook was highly effective. The Patriots have won multiple Super Bowls using it.

      • Someguy77

        Kind of what I was thinking of too after tonight and Clement’s emergence including on 3rd down.

        Still like to see Blount used a bit less and Ajayi a bit more especially in the 1st half.

        Ajayi just gives them that chance to burst a long play which Blount doesn’t.

        • daveH

          Clement is difference maker. . Like he just won’t quit ..made a real nice tackle on spec teams also

    • Insomniac

      Giants had it work in 08? Jacobs, Bradshaw and Ward were damn good.

  • daveH

    902 comments. . Makes games mo’ betta

  • xeynon

    Props to Doug for the halftime adjustments. Other than the first drive, the team wasn’t sharp in the first half, and the Cowboys D came out prepared for them and gave them trouble.

    Pederson apparently reassessed over the break and came out with running plays that gashed the Cowboys’ aggressive tendencies and from there everything got easier.

    It’s so nice to have a coach who not only can make in-game adjustments, but can be expected to on a weekly basis, and who consistently outcoaches the guy on the other sideline.

    • Flyin

      This team is really putting optimism into negativism.First half was dreadful and the second half was wow.

  • Corry

    Birds were 4 of 5 in the red zone.

  • Kohlhaas

    yeah boyyyyyeeee! First half was a nightmare but that second half was something. This team wins even when they look like crap!

  • wee2424

    Wow, we arent just beating teams. We are demoralising them. Without a kicker….. Lol.

    • daveH

      … wife said same thing! I said. . Beating them down

  • Howie Littlefinger

    Why the hell was Michaels saying”Ajayi-EEE” All night?

    • Koy: The Legend of Neckbeard

      He’s a quirky guy. Sometimes I think he’s making a joke to himself. Or just a 70-something year old struggling with a foreign name.

    • Masked Man

      Haha.

  • Masked Man

    OK. A 30-0 2nd half shut out of the Dallas Cowboys in Dallas on Sunday Night.

    Is this team unbelievable or what?

    They had 33 rushes for 215 yard and 2 TDs with 6.5 yards per rush…

    They had 4 sacks w/ 3 picks and apparently another forced fumble on the QB…

  • daveH

    How come no darren McFadden ?

    • or____

      Doghouse plus jaylon’s brother

      • daveH

        Gotta Google ‘jaylobs brother’ .. but he must be craaaaaaaap to be in doghouse ..why even pay him then

        • or____

          Check the edit. And most teams carry 3 rbs at least

          • daveH

            Yep, healthy scratch. Wierd

  • wee2424

    Random note- Barnett stays after that ball whether it is behind LOS or 15 yards down field. I think he was in on just about every gang tackle or at minimum very close.

    Gifted athlete with a HIGH motor.

    • daveH

      Also awesome watching Graham pressuring the QB, getting blocked pretty well about 8 yds behind line of scrimmage. ..but then running down the RB and making the friggon tackle about 15yd down field !!#

      • wee2424

        Yup. Having such a good rotation means they can go 100% every play.

    • xeynon

      I remember back during the draft process people complaining that Barnett’s 40 time was too slow and he lacked NFL caliber pass rushing moves. I just that bend and thought “he’ll be fine”. Saw it today on the strip sack.

      • wee2424

        Regardless of 40 time the kid plays more then fast enough on the field.

  • RC5000

    We moved into 1st in the NFL in points (320) and in differential (+128) over the Rams (303), differential (+117). Just a fun stat.

    • Masked Man

      Rams had a bad day with Minny.
      I had Goff on an ESPN fantasy team this week.
      Also had the Rams D/ST.

      Goff – 9.8 points
      Rams D/ST – Minus 5 points
