    Gameday!

  • Will

    Vinny Curry inactive…

  • http://abigbuttandasmile.com/ A Big Butt and a Smile

    Woo Hoo!!!!

  • http://abigbuttandasmile.com/ A Big Butt and a Smile

    So I watch Jags/Raiders on the big TV and gotta watch Eagles/Chargers on my computer. Being an Eagles fan in Florida…that’s how it be.

    lol

  • Token

    this last hour is taking forever.

    Gotta say, this is the type of game the Reid Eagles would come out and lay a egg. Really hoping for a different result under Chip. I expect better effort now game in and game out.

  • Mr. Wu

    “SAN DIEGO C***K S****RS!!!!” ……HAHAHAHA

  • Token

    Cant hold the ball this long. Just cant happen.

  • UKEagle99

    Not the best start for Todd, he continues to look like the weak link.

    • Token

      yep. Barbre will finish the season at RG.

  • Gruvi

    I am paying attention to the RBs leaving the ball on the turf, and it’s annoying! Never bothered me until this Chip Kelly era.

  • anon

    See Nate Allen get abused. Let’s talk Kerry Rhodes again.

  • UKEagle99

    Need some D now.

  • anon

    New Eagles looking like the old eagles…

  • RIP illa

    Barwin just killed Fluker

  • UKEagle99

    Lets hope they can force some turnovers. Phillip needs to throw us a few.

  • RIP illa

    Good call by Mecc! Saw it all the way

  • anon

    Ok, i can calm back down, nice stop, field goal.

  • Token

    bend dont break

  • Token

    Now Vicks gotta let it fly, get that ball out of his hands.

    • anon

      Herremans needs to get it together. I like how he pulled shady for not giving the ball to the ref.

      • RIP illa

        And then Brown goes in and does the same thing…lol

    • RIP illa

      Or the line has to hold up. You know there are DBs covering our WRs?!

      • Token

        cant hold it for 3.3 seconds like last week

        • Token

          Now thats how its done.

          • RIP illa

            Yeah line holds up and let’s him get through his progression. We all know Vick is not the quickest at going through his progression. But line still needs to hold up!

  • RIP illa

    I hope they keep kicking to DJ2…he’s gonna break a long one today!

  • RIP illa

    Ran outta gas towards the end. Great play!

  • Token

    ugh, nevermind…. bad throw

  • RIP illa

    Jesus!!! Do we have a TE w/ reliable hands!

    • Token

      that was a awful throw, didnt help.

      • RIP illa

        Hate Hate Hate Hate!!!

      • http://theadulttoysstore.com/ The Toy Goddess

        He caught it…then lost it…couldn’t have been that bad a throw.

  • anon

    IS that Vick’s fault on the in-completion?

    • UKEagle99

      It was low but it was catchable.

    • RIP illa

      I hope that’s a joke! What does Casey get paid 4 mil to do??? Only catch perfect passes??? It was still an easy catch that he didn’t make!!! Get outta here w/ that Vick’s fault. Maybe Vick should just run it over to him and hand him the ball!

    • http://theadulttoysstore.com/ The Toy Goddess

      Casey caught the ball. Then lost the ball. That’s on Casey.

  • UKEagle99

    They should get Donovan to throw to our tight ends pre-game on Thursday, they will catch balls like Casey dropped after that ;-P

    • RIP illa

      Lol. That was good.

  • Token

    i love how every player is fair game to criticize except Vick. Its hilarious.

    • UKEagle99

      Vick is fair game but the drop was on Casey imo, a low but very catchable ball.

    • RIP illa

      Dude your ridiculous! All you do is criticize Vick. It’s not only old but really ignorant, since you account for no other factors in any given play that you cite! Vick does his fair share of wrong! But damn lil homey…other players have to make plays too!!!

    • http://theadulttoysstore.com/ The Toy Goddess

      Vick is more than fair game to criticize. But when you criticize on things that aren’t his fault you just seem like an idiot.

  • RIP illa

    Nate Allen…concussion! Everybody gets there chance to see Wolff now!

  • RIP illa

    Come on…BS

  • anon

    Well this is how you defeat the eagles, keep te offense off the field. so simple.

    • RIP illa

      Pretty much. But I still don’t see us losing this game!

  • RIP illa

    D needs to step it up before SD gets close to the 30.

  • B-West

    Just when I think I can’t despise Nate Allen anymore

  • Mr. Wu

    biggest hit nate allen has had in while

  • RIP illa

    We need to reevaluate our team doctors!!! How is Allen still in the game!!! Lol

  • RIP illa

    Wow…great job C-Will. Thought that was gonna b a big one.

  • anon

    Allen gets beat again

  • RIP illa

    Dammit!!! Allen ran around the route instead of going through it and directly to his man! SMH!!!

  • anon

    I think people are just attacking Allen at this point, knowing that he’s terrible.

    • RIP illa

      If by people you mean other teams, then you’re pretty much right. Any time the can get him in a one on one situation then they pretty much know they have a huge advatange. He has been pretty sound, not good or great when he’s playing like a safety and covering the top or zone. But when he’s playing man and up like a cb…it’s game over!

  • RIP illa

    Desean puttin in work for Lesean!!!

  • anon

    Bad pass Vick, fuck.

  • NickS1

    Chip’s pissed.

  • RIP illa

    Have no idea what the hell Vick was doing on that!!! Had Lesean and Desean way open…come on

  • RIP illa

    Pitiful possession…all on Vick…even Brown getting killed!

  • anon

    Special teams looks great. But afraid we might not get the ball back before half time.

  • UKEagle99

    1 bad play on each drive has killed it. We need turnovers.

  • anon

    We are getting straight dominated at the line. Terrible.

  • RIP illa

    Better not be on C-Will

  • RIP illa

    This is getting depressing. Need the D to make a play

  • RIP illa

    Good thing Rivers is a 4th quarter choke artist!!! Can’t wait!!!

    • NickS1

      I’d feel a lot better if we didn’t have to rely on that.

      • RIP illa

        Trust me…so would I.

  • RIP illa

    Thank You Mecc!!! Kendricks needs to blow him up on that play or at least wrap up!

  • anon

    TD — wow, that took 1 minute. All Vick All day!!

  • RIP illa

    Great catch Coop. Wanted you before Mac’s injury, but glad to have you if you keep catching like that!

  • RIP illa

    That was quick!

  • #7

    MV7

  • UKEagle99

    Great throw and catch. Kudos to Desean, if he carries on like this he’s in for a big payday.

  • #7

    @Token you work for the Humane Society or something? Your specific mission every game is to critique every throw Vick makes lol

    • RIP illa

      He’s already been “checked” several times!!!

      • #7

        That woman is a straight up loser

  • RIP illa

    Trent Cole putting in work in the run game on those last two plays!

  • RIP illa

    Targeting Wolff’s zone every time!

  • Me

    Has Rivers thrown an incompletion yet?

    • Mr. Wu

      yes a couple i think

    • UKEagle99

      14 of 16

  • RIP illa

    Who was that w/ the strip

  • NickS1

    BOYKIN!!!!!

  • UKEagle99

    Boykin is our Honey Badger :-)

    • http://theadulttoysstore.com/ The Toy Goddess

      Yes. Yes he is.

  • RIP illa

    Davis has to do something about Wolff next 1/2 ASAP!!! He’s not providing any help to any CB or LB in coverage and letting big gains go.

  • EuropeanEagle

    If we don’t have Lesean that’s a safety.

    • http://theadulttoysstore.com/ The Toy Goddess

      Yeah I was thinking that…

  • #7

    Nice play Boykin!

  • RIP illa

    Come on refs!!!

  • RIP illa

    And that’s why I don’t like Hughes. We seriously need some CB and S help.

  • RIP illa

    Trent Cole again!!!

  • NickS1

    Maybe he was expecting Chip to ice him again

  • RIP illa

    Great drive!!! Good way to finish the 1/2…at least that’s what I was gonna say till Henery missed that. Oh well. We took there best shot and are still very much right there and capable of winning this game!

  • Mr. Wu

  • RIP illa

    Next 1/2…
    Gotta get Wolff to step up or get him out of there! Seriously Coleman can do no worse than the combo of Nate and Wolff.

    We have no pressure on Rivers from our D-line men and the blitz is not hitting home hardly at all. I count 2-3 plays where the blitz got pressure but no sacks. We can’t live off turnovers forever!

    O is pulling it together, Johnson needs some better pass pro and Herremans needs to step up and Vick needs to never have another drive like that horrible one he had before…but all in all just keep doing what there doing.

  • UKEagle99

    Ok, let’s see what this team is made of.

    Let’s also see what adjustments are made.

  • RIP illa

    LMFAO….Ryans just murdered they’re best WR!!! Love it

  • Mr. Wu

    hats no joke that man got Fd up

  • RIP illa

    That’s the type of D I wanna see. Not Allen being late on the help to the seam route (just like Wolff) but making SD’s WRs pay for doing it. Hope Floyd is ok in the long run, and I’m sure he will be…but love how Mecc concussed him!!!

  • UKEagle99

    I hope it’s not serious but wouldn’t it be nice if we had a safety that could hit that hard, week in, week out.

    • RIP illa

      If I was Flyod…I’d really hate Nate Allen right now!!! If Nate had played that better, Ryans would have never had the chance to get that hit.

  • RIP illa

    Get outta here. Mecc was standing straight up. Nothing could be done!!! He better not even get fined by the league.

  • RIP illa

    Wow…the Rook is talking a lot of ish to Williams. It’s only a matter of time before C-Will blows his top.

  • Johnny Domino

    hat trick

  • RIP illa

    Damn Boykin…got roasted!

  • UKEagle99

    We need to start knocking Rivers around.

  • RIP illa

    SMH!!!

  • RIP illa

    God I hate Rivers so much!!!! We gotta start smacking him around…need Davis to disguise his blitz better.

  • Mr. Wu

    “Hello Kerry Rhoades…are you busy this week?”

  • RIP illa

    This was what I was afraid of when we face a good QB w/ our D. Let’s go O!!!

    • UKEagle99

      How is King Dunlap locking down the left side? Would have been nice to see Curry in there to see what he could do as the rest of them aren’t laying many hands on Rivers.

      • RIP illa

        Cause Trent is not that good as an OLB. He plays the run very well but where’s the pass rush!!!

  • UKEagle99

    Woop, first down!

  • RIP illa

    Ertz hangs on.

  • RIP illa

    Holding

    EDIT: what!!! Damn!

  • RIP illa

    Nice Coop. Lets go!

  • RIP illa

    Really hate that call on 3rd. So deflating!

  • UKEagle99

    Winning the turnover battle and down by 7, need to stop shooting ourselves in the foot.

  • RIP illa

    Great play Boykin. Another bad blitz…here we go!!!

    • UKEagle99

      Its a lesson on how to form a pocket.

  • RIP illa

    Can’t stop that all game!!! It’s like sex w/ Kobe Bryant…try and stop it all you want…but it’s going to happen!!!

    • Mr. Wu

      aww man thats wrong….but so good

  • UKEagle99

    Touchdown o/

  • #7

    Keep proving them wrong Vick

  • RIP illa

    I really can’t understand why SD has Ben man upping DJax w/ no help all ge but please continue!!!

  • Johnny Domino

    Boykin is moving to #1 corner, let him play wherever he wants.

  • RIP illa

    Boykin has been locking down the left side this 1/2

  • RIP illa

    Awe man. Just got so excited after C-Will lit that guy up. Dammit Chung

  • RIP illa

    Sopoaga has not been holding down the middle all game. Step it up man!!!

  • UKEagle99

    I hope they feed it to Brown near the goal line so he can try one of his special passes.

    • RIP illa

      Only if Marty is his O-Coord. Takes a special kinda stupid to pull that off, and I don’t think Brown is capable of that by himself.

      • UKEagle99

        Lol, yeah. We like to throw it, even when we run it!

  • Johnny Domino

    Got to say all things being equal a tie is not so bad right.

    That and the new cheerleader garb is not unsightly.

    • UKEagle99

      Designed by Vera Wang. That’s what the label says in the piece I have in my teeth :-D

  • RIP illa

    I have a feeling that they’re gonna keep testing C-Will and he’s gonna make them pay for it. Either pick of forced fumble. Boykin has the other side on lock, so their best bet is attacking our safeties. Hopefully they step up their game like C-Will has.

  • Johnny Domino

    Get up, please get up!

  • UKEagle99

    Ouch. Chargers line picked up the stunt with ease.

    • RIP illa

      All game. Sucks so bad…just want one to hit home and either kill Rivers or lead to a TO.

  • UKEagle99

    At last.

  • RIP illa

    Why are our F’N safeties who can’t cover in zone in man coverage!!!

  • Johnny Domino

    Hungry like the Wolff

    • RIP illa

      More like Gates turned into Finley on that one.

  • RIP illa

    God that blitz wasn’t even that good and Rivers still cracked. All we need is a little pressure on dude!

  • UKEagle99

    Cox needs to keep that frustration for live play.

    • RIP illa

      He was cool until Rivers got in his face and started talking ish while tryin to jack him up!

      • UKEagle99

        I know but it is never the first guy that gets flagged.

  • RIP illa

    Ooh I wish we were in our 1/2 of the field so Cox could’ve body slammed that loud mouth B Rivers! I’d gladly take a 15 for that!

  • #7

    Cmon Eagles !!

  • RIP illa

    2 easy catches by Ertz for big yardage!!! That’s what I wanna see from the kid!

  • phillyeagle77

    Touchdown baby!!!!!!!

  • RIP illa

    Yeeeeeeeeessssssses!!!!!!!!!!

  • #7

    Beautiful drive. Now let’s get a stop D. MV7 killin’em lol

  • RIP illa

    Can we get a kicker w/ hands Please!!!! :-)

  • RIP illa

    TFL or sack!!! Come on D!!!

  • RIP illa

    Ok…all that means is 4 more opportunities for a TO

  • Johnny Domino

    At least there’s time.

  • RIP illa

    Or a TD after 1. :-( Davis got his ass handed to him on that call!

  • RIP illa

    Game shouldn’t even be going this way! Bad start on O and horrible defense and defensive play calling all game. I still don’t think the Chargers are any way near better than us!!!

    EDIT: Oh and Henery’s miss FG!!! Ugh!

  • #7

    Damn defense…… SMH.

    Game winning drive Vick. Let’s do it

  • RIP illa

    WRs had no idea what the play was…SMH

  • RIP illa

    WTF. Not that play in that situation!!! Give him something short or over the middle to work w/!

    • http://theadulttoysstore.com/ The Toy Goddess

      I agree.

  • RIP illa

    2/3…I’m so anti Henery right now!!!

  • UKEagle99

    Gimme an INT boys

  • RIP illa

    3-4 yard run ends the game

  • RIP illa

    Depressing!!!

  • RIP illa

    Fire Davis!!! Worse blitz scheme ever!!! Done!!!

  • RIP illa

    FUCKIN PATHETIC!!!

  • Dutch

    Well, the real defense showed it’s ugly head. Phillips had a career day with the help of Gates inside and Royal outside to kill the Eagles secondary. If Peyton saw this game he is licking his chops in wait. We knTew they were suspect but at their worse no way should they surrender 30 pts.

    The offense posted 500 yds of offense no way we supposed to lose that game. They had better consult with Kerry Rhodes and hope fletcher is ready next week, and find a slot guy because there is no way you can pull boykin and put him back in the middle, he had an awesome game.

  • Gruvi

    Now will Kelly learn from this terrible loss and game calling?

  • #7

    Not on the offense at all.

    • UKEagle99

      Apart from the penalties, Johnson not being on the line springs to mind.

  • UKEagle99

    Too many penalties that killed drives and Henery’s miss. The D came down to earth with a bump but a very winnable game. I’m off to bet 10,000 that the Chargers win the Superbowl.

    • http://theadulttoysstore.com/ The Toy Goddess

      Henrey’s miss and Henery’s lousy hands in recovering a turnover.

      • UKEagle99

        Yup.

    • RIP illa

      Good teams beat teams that they’re supposed to. Our D does suck. Can’t live off of TOs (cause they’re not reliable) and a QB who’s coming off a serious injury. I put this all on Davis, who let the Chargers hold the ball for 40 f’n mins!!! I hated his hire!!! Hate his personnel decisions!!! Hate his coverage calls!!! Hate his blitz calls!!!! Hate him!!!

  • Token

    Its probably the worst D in the NFL still. At least top 3. I dont want to hear anymore about how underrated this D is. Even with 1st half struggles the offense did more than enough to win. Vick had like 800 yards in a loss, thats ridiculous.

    The D is the obvious scapegoat. But I put a bunch of blame on Chip Kelly. Why on earth was he running the fast tempo offense with 2 minutes left on SDs side of the field!?!? You run clock at that point so that you either score a TD and win, or score a FG and go to OT. Giving SD the ball back with all that time is just bad coaching. Andy Reid type of thing. The play Vick got dinged shouldnt have happened because they shouldnt have been so hurried on 1st down from about the 20. Unreal.

    Awful penalty by Desean but I dont think it was a factor. That D wasnt stopping them regardless. Plus 4 guys missed diving on the fumble.

  • UKEagle99

    The calm before the storm. You’ll need to watch the next hour on slooooooow mo :-)

  • Token

    so you are hating on Casey then right? Grow up.

  • Mr. Wu

    screeeeeeeeeAAACH!

  • http://theadulttoysstore.com/ The Toy Goddess

    Eagles fan base is schizophrenic.

    If everything doesn’t start perfectly it’s “The world is over we’re DOOOOOOOOOMED!!!!!!!!”

    When things go well it’s “We’re the BEST EVER!!! We’re gonna win the SUPER BOWL!!!!!!!”

    SMH

    Everyone needs to take a collective breath.

  • Mr. Wu

    ahh I feel better now…TD’s are my przac…….better up my dose Dr. Big Butt :)

  • #7

    Couldn’t have said itbbetter lol

  • http://abigbuttandasmile.com/ A Big Butt and a Smile

    Exactly. know who your QB is. lol

  • http://theadulttoysstore.com/ The Toy Goddess

    You’d be surprised…

  • RIP illa

    Don’t really care about many secondaries…only ours. And if many secondaries have been playing like this…then many DB coaches as well as D-Coords need to be fired!!!

  • RIP illa

    Lol. Fire Davis…and who’s our DB coach…just playing.

  • RIP illa

    True!

  • http://abigbuttandasmile.com/ A Big Butt and a Smile

    I said he gave the ball back with too much time on the clock. HOWEVER – with the right defense that wouldn’t be an issue. unfortunately we don’t have that defense. He’s got to get a 4min offense going or hire Kerry Rhodes and whoever else he can get out there on the free market.

  • Dutch

    Told you yesterday that Phillips and Gates could hurt you and this was target practice for Phillips. The Eagles put 8 in defense and Phillips still found a man wide open, Allen was toasted by a mile and a half. how could that happen with a 3 man rush?

  • Token

    Yes, but we dont have a D and Kelly saw that all day. He should have known to not give them the ball back there with a bunch of time.

    The D…… man they a depressingly bad. 1 SD punt today. Just couldnt get a important stop. Its not fixable this season. They just are lacking in talent, unless you are GEeagle, everyone realizes that. The fact that the pass rush was so bad against a subpar line is not a good sign. Blitzes were mostly all picked up.

    Chip just said in his PC that theres no safeties on the street. So Rhodes is obviously blackballed from the league at this point. Wolff may as well play. I dont think hes good either, but I cant watch Nate Allen fail anymore. Give me a new face of failure atleast.

    What it looks like, and I think we all kind of worried about this, we caught a apparently bad Skins team by surprise all around in that first half. Since that 1st half this D has been toasted.

    Offense had a tough 1st half. But there really wasnt anything more Vick could have done to win the game. Him and Desean were killing them, especially if you consider the near misses they had. No turnovers.

  • Dutch

    He had some nerve whining about not playing last week……. Aint’ that a B**ch!!!!
