  • Pennguino

    Great start to the game smh

  • Pennguino

    Fletch breaks up one then gives it up…wow

  • UKEagle99

    Here we go again.

  • UKEagle99

    The last thing we need to do is give a bad Giants team confidence.

  • Pennguino

    Good call. Going to need them today

  • Pennguino

    yay points

  • Bobby

    The Philadelphia Field Goals! Lol wtf philly!? I’ve done everything I can. Even dug my Troy Vincent jersey out of my closet to help our feng shui

    • UKEagle99

      We appreciate it, I’m gonna put my Jerome Brown jersey on!

  • UKEagle99

    Our defence is clearly transparent at this point.

  • Token

    Chips gameplans have been brutal. Its like he just gave up on the offense after week 2.

  • Pennguino

    Press receiver and force a contested throw. Not like us that play 10 yards off in soft zone but blitz. The blitz gets there but there is no coverage. wow

  • Pennguino

    looks like they tried that deep screen that KC killed us on

  • Pennguino

    at least he is pulling the trigger this game

  • Token

    Brutal offense. Just brutal.

    I think one year will be enough for Chip.

  • Pennguino

    BULLSH1T. That should be a safety.

  • Pennguino

    SAme play he missed Celek on in the SD game

  • Token

    Chip Kelly is over matched. Who knew man coverage was all it took to stop “the genius” Chip Kelly.

    • Brian

      Vick is off. He over threw Avant. Hasn’t looked consistently good since week 1.

      • UKEagle99

        He may be off today although he’s had a couple of drops by receivers. Vick isn’t the problem.

        • Token

          Keep telling yourself that people. Hes 3 for 16 in the redzone. Brutal.

          • UKEagle99

            People? I am one man…

          • UKEagle99

            I’m not getting in to this now. You think Foles would be better? Really? Or do you think wes should be trading for P Manning or Brady? This ain’t fantasy football.

          • #7

            The dude is an idiot man. It’s personal for him

          • UKEagle99

            Yeah I’ve had a few beers, my guard was down… I got Token’d.. My bad

          • #7

            He’s good at it

      • Token

        Thats Vick. What do you expect from him?

        • Brandon Boykin, OLB

          You do know that whole drive was Vick, right? Like if Foles ain’t scoring on that drive?

          • UKEagle99

            You know Foles is the second coming of Tom Brady right?

          • Brandon Boykin, OLB

            You’re right man. I forgot. I will now excuse myself from this board.

          • Token

            WHO CARES ABOUT FOLES!?!?!?!?!?!?!

            Just because Vick sucks that doesnt mean anyone is saying Foles is good. Most of us have seen enough of Vick. The offense is a trainwreck. Put Barkley in for all I care. We need a QB in round 1 either way so why keep playing this guy? What does it get you?

        • #7

          LOL You’re on it today. Vick has almost all of the yards

          • Brian

            He had zero passing yards til the td drive.

          • #7

            Who cares? We’re winning.

          • Token

            You think this offense wins many games? Come on, just jump off of him for one second.

          • #7

            I’m pullin for the Eagles to win you lame ass. You’re the only one on here talking about one player lol.

          • Brian

            That’s funny. You, of all people, don’t care about the QB position.

      • UKEagle99

        The biggest disappointment on O is the line for me.

  • UKEagle99

    I forget. Can we score more than 3?

    • Token

      what is this offense? Where is the tempo, the taking advantage of numbers, all that crap?

      This is basically last years offense with more runs. Imagine what a trainwreck it would be without Shady, well when Polk was in you get a glimpse of whatd it be like.

      If Chip cant scheme to beat man he wont be in the NFL long.

      • UKEagle99

        This offence is giving me the runs. I’m exasperated, last few weeks have been painful.

  • Token

    We were due for a lucky break.

  • Pennguino

    Finally a TD

  • Pennguino

    We recovered a fumble and I am like numb….No joy in this team

  • Pennguino

    Hamstring…stop teasing me

    • #7

      What do you mean?

  • #7

    WTF Chippah??

  • UKEagle99

    W00p another Eagles up tempo TD… 3 points. We’re gonna Kick the Giants to death… I’ll take it.

    • #7

      We should have went for it

  • Token

    I just dont know what team some of you are watching. This offense is terrible. Yet still act like Vick is a god. He didnt complete a pass til the 2nd quarter. Chip is panicking so hes designing way more QB runs.

    • #7

      Acting like Vick is a God?

      No one is doing that on here. And what the hell is wrong with pulling for the starting QB? We should all be booing like you?

      • Token

        No sane Eagles fan would say hes having a good game. You like one guy above the team

        • #7

          There’s not one post on here about vick. not one

          • Token

            Really? “Vick has almost all of the yards”

          • #7

            He did

    • Brandon Boykin, OLB

      You’re absolutely right. So let’s put in the guy who couldn’t beat him in the preseason position battle. Because that makes sense.

    • UKEagle99

      You need to learn how people worship their gods.

  • Pennguino

    Should have been holding on Graham

  • Pennguino

    can’t pull the trigger so you go deeper into your own endzone????

  • #7

    You got your wish Token

  • Pennguino

    Heres hoping he does well. Go Foles! If the king of flopping teams don’t slow him down

  • UKEagle99

    Good drive. Kudos Foles.

  • Pennguino

    From the shadow of his goal line 7/8 60+ yards and points.

    • Token

      Thats what I want to see more of from the offense. Take whats given. Enough of the looking for bombs every play. Im sick of it after the last 3 years.

    • UKEagle99

      Yup, good drive. Lets see what he can do in the 2nd, we very good at scoring 3, top of the league I’d guess.

      • Token

        What with McCoy coming out in the redzone?

        Gotta put up TDs. Giants have firepower offensively. This thing is far from over.

      • Pennguino

        Yep, I want the kid to do well so we can move on from Vick. Would love for him to make this a statement game, but I will be happy with a win and he leads the team to a TD.

  • Pennguino

    Keep it up kid. Willing to live with a few mistakes as you learn the position from the NFL perspective. Let’s see how you do with the rest of the year under your belt.

  • Will

    Now we get a good look at Foles. At least Henry has made all the FG’s. Let’s hope they play a good second half with no let up.

  • The Truth

    Wow, your team is winning and some guys continue to whine about anything, you people are a joke. Philadelphia is by far the best team in the NFL in my eye’s, but you Philly fans are a complete disgrace. You deserve to have your team bought out and moved out of your cancer of city.Learn to root for your team!! Even if you don’t like a single player on it!

    • #7

      Unfortunately you’re right

    • Eagles4Life

      Exactly!

    • #7

      It’s terrible on all Eagles blogs including 24/7, although these are more tame than all of the other sites. That’s why I come here. It’s not as bad as the others

    • UKEagle99

      This is Philly right? I was under the impression that winning wasn’t enough :-D

    • Wilbert31

      Philly is the best team? Lol

  • Eagles4Life

    Root for your TEAM. My goodness…it’s really obvious why we haven’t won a Super Bowl with comments some of you all make. Half of them show minimal football knowledge anyway. Do better. Sheesh.

    • The Truth

      Because you whining and bitching is really helping the situation, a team feeds off their fans, you have no call in the plays so your role as a fan is to cheer them on and get them amped. You are one of the disgraces I was referring too

      • Eagles4Life

        Lol what the hell are you talking about? I haven’t even been on here today.

        • The Truth

          Your posting history says enough, go root for another team. Philly needs less cancerous entities such as yourself.

          • Eagles4Life

            Lol alllllright, buddy. You’ve got all the answers, I’m sure.

    • The Truth

      Sry man, I just re read this and snapped on you for nothing. I am just amped up by some of these jerk offs that I didnt completely read your post the way it was intended to be.

      • Eagles4Life

        LOL it’s all good man. There’s bullets flying on here every week. No biggie.

  • #7

    Time for Shady to get shut down now smh

    • Token

      Let me guess, you think the Vick fake sets McCoy free? Your nuts. McCoy has been good for years. Nobody cares about Vick running. Defenses havent even been biting on the worthless “read option”.

      • UKEagle99

        Sheil’s stats on our RO would beg to differ.

        • #7

          This dude Token lol.

          • UKEagle99

            Yes, best not to let the facts get in the way of a good rant.

          • #7

            That woman does not care about facts

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

            Oh no. The ladies do not want him. He’s all yours gentlemen.

        • Token

          McCoys career up to this point would beg to differ.

      • #7

        McCoy is a great back. Absolutely. But if you think that Vick doesn’t make it easier for #25, YOU’re nuts. You take everything to the extreme and no one is implying that. The threat of the run works

        • Token

          McCoy is THE only thing keeping this offense afloat. Without him its even a bigger disaster. Not that Vick is the sole reason for that, I blame Chip mostly. Awful gameplans and schemes.

          • #7

            We can agree on that Token. Now I must go “Toke” something. I can’t take this shit anymore. Vick..Foles. Not sure any of it matters. I’m really not liking Chippah right now to be honest

  • Pennguino

    Nice little pep on that throw

    • #7

      lol

  • Pennguino

    Sorry we screwed you on the safety. Here, have this catch

  • UKEagle99

    No one touched you, Cruz. Just dance biatch!

  • Pennguino

    No challenges from our DB’s. Playing off is killing us

  • UKEagle99

    We’ve had some quality defences in our time. Gang Green holds a special place in my heart. I nickname this defence….

    … The Red Sea!

  • UKEagle99

    Need to put our foot on their throat.

  • #7

    Cmon Foles you need to get the ball out quick

  • Pennguino

    CRAP!

  • #7

    Man I’m telling you the NFL today. They are so loose with the PI flags now. BS call

  • #7

    I’m so f’in pissed right now. Our defense is about to blow another game…against an 0-4 team.

  • #7

    F’in disgrace.

  • Token

    Goodnight Wolff, o lord.

    Do we really have no sacks vs this Oline? Just when you think the D cant surprise you with how bad it is…..

    To be fair to them though, the offense has to put up more points vs the Giants awful D.

  • UKEagle99

    Things going soooo much better without Vick.

    • Token

      Werent putting it in the endzone with him in either. Offense continues to not put points up.

      Im really starting to believe Chip is one and done. Hes over matched in the NFL. Has been out coached in the 2nd half AGAIN today.

      Lets see what happens….

      • UKEagle99

        Lol, you are delusional. Vick played the half and we were up by 2 scores… I call what I see. You and I are done.

        • Token

          We are 1-3. Likely to be 1-4. People need perspective.

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

            What perspective? Your only perspective is VICK SUCKS.

            lol

          • Token

            Vick does suck. But that doesnt mean Foles doesnt suck too. One has nothing to do with the other.

            Im wondering how many people are coming around to the idea that Chip kind of sucks himself.

          • #7

            I’m getting there. Quickly

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

            Chip doesn’t suck. Chip has personnel issues. And he can’t make guys execute. The scheme is sound.

          • #7

            I hope you’re right. I’m just confused to be honest. This is the one thing that Token is right about.

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

            It’s 5 games. There have been MAD penalties on the line and receivers who can’t get separation and cant’ catch.

            Those aren’t coach issues.

          • #7

            I get that. I do, but this guy has to make adjustments. I don’t know…I’m not impressed. A lot of things were impressive at the start, but where did they go??

            We obviously know that we cannot do the same things with Foles as far as the run game goes which is his staple

          • Token

            You wanna delude yourself into believing that. All of us do to a certain extent.

            Chip kept all these guys. Drafted a RT and TE with the most important picks in the draft. Paid another TE. Has the best RB in football. Still cant scheme up anything to beat MAN COVERAGE. Thats a disaster.

            Going into next year im not comfortable with Howie OR Chip picking players.

            Chip has shown nothing that shows me he will be a good coach. His main talent is supposed to be offense and he cant score points. Its not college anymore where you can win relying on 40 yards plays. Thats why Oregon would struggle against the good college teams.

          • #7

            That’s all he knows. We were up two scores at halftime. We are now losing. 12-17 passing means nothing when the passes are 5yd throws.

            I want Foles to do well and I want the Eagles to win, but I just think we can win with him. Maybe he proves me wrong. i doubt it

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

      In divisional games u always want Vick playing. Always. Sigh.

  • Pennguino

    Good throw to a tall receiver. Give them a chance to catch it….

  • Uriel Fernandez

    The team should bring back Castillo lol

  • The Truth

    Are you kidding me Fole’s? Do not do that again. You’re lucky you got that penalty

  • Eagledelphia

    Vick is needed for the running game to be anywhere near as effective

  • Token

    Just amazing how awful they are in the redzone.

  • Pennguino

    Foles and DJ are off on reads. A week worth of practice will help them get on the same page for the BUCS.

    • UKEagle99

      Bucs are a much tougher D, not to be under estimated on their record.

      • Pennguino

        It will be a tough game. Heck, this one is tough also. It’s a division opponent so we knew this was not going to be a blow out. Bucs have a better secondary and was #1 in run defense last year. They almost handed NO a loss.

        • UKEagle99

          Yes, worries me that people look at their record and pencil in a W. They match up well against us. It’s winnable but not a given, then again which games are a given?

      • #7

        Exactly.

    • The Truth

      Get out of here, Fole’s has been getting reps with the first team. This is Off. football, overthrowing a WR and bombing a near INT. Bad football

  • #7

    You can dink and dunk all you want. You still have to get TDs. Dink and dunking plays into the hands of the defense and our run game will suffer since the “read option fake” was a huge part of our running game, which is now gone.

    On the other hand, we have one of the worst defenses in NFL history.

    Can’t win either way

    • Token

      You dont win relying on big plays either, maybe in college you can.

      Im not really sure what Chips offense even is at this point. Just looks like a mess to me, for a guy who was supposed to be a genius.

      One and done.

      • #7

        Maybe that’s because Vick knows you have to attack downfield to win in this league.

        Also, you’re inaccurate with you statement saying that every play he tries to make are bombs. You come up with your own conclusions and that’s your right.

        That doesn’t make it right though

        • Token

          Thats why they dont sustain drives and have trouble in the redzone. They rely on the big play. Just cant win like that. You need big plays, but that cant be your bread and butter.

          Like look at this last drive. What the hell kind of scheme is this?

          Basically even if Vick is in there the only way yards are gained is if he would have taken off and ran. Thats just not sustainable.

          • #7

            The great QBs aren’t dinking and dunkin. They throw downfield sir.

            Look at the stats. Even though Peyton Manning’s arm isn’t as strong, he averaging almost 10yds per attempt with Vick being second.

            Having Foles in is not sustainable unless he can stretch the field some

          • Token

            You must have missed how Mannings offense operated last week. No successful offense in the league looks deep almost every play like ours does.

          • #7

            10yds per attempt sir. That’s not dink and dunk

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

            Don’t bother with Token. He has his mind made up and there is no arguing with him…

          • #7

            Ah it’s alright. Fun to debate with him.

  • The Truth

    3 and out, Fole’s needs to come out and put one in, no excuses!

    • UKEagle99

      Too right!

  • The Truth

    Why the one hand attempt, use both hands, quit showboating it !

  • #7

    Cmon Foles. Ball out quickly please

  • Guest

    Foles is awful

  • The Truth

    Get Mike back in NOW!!!

  • #7

    Cmon Token. Where you at sir?

    • The Truth

      Fole’s adds nothing, just check down passes. Mike offers a run threat, a depp threat, and a check down pass threat. Token and company are completely delusional.

      Fole’s is out, focus on our franchise QB in next years draft cause he ain’t the one sitting on our bench!

    • Token

      Do you think I dont believe you that Foles blows? Thats not the case.

      Just because I believe Vick sucks, doesnt mean I dont think Foles/Barkley suck.

      The QB we need to move forward with isnt on the roster yet. And probably the coach we need to move forward with.

      • Eagledelphia

        So you’ve been clamoring for Foles who you also believe sucks? Yeah okay

        • Token

          Playing Vick makes no sense. This team needs rebuilt. You see if any of these young guys can stick around and atleast be the backup to your #1 draft pick next year. Vick wont be here next year. Someone has to explain the point of playing him.

          Unless you think we are a playoff team, then I dont know what to tell you. Your drunk on koolaid.

          • #7

            The point of playing him is because Chip brought him back and Vick won the open competition…that you said he would lose

          • UKEagle99

            In the NFC East anyone could be a playoff team, its the NFC West of a few years ago, 7-9 gets you in, then anything can happen.

          • UKEagle99

            When I say anyone I mean, Dallas (spits), Giants (spits), Redskins (laughs), Eagles (hopes).

          • Eagledelphia

            If the team plays in any other division then hell no they aren’t a playoff team but as luck would have it they play in the NFC least any I’m confident in the ability to win divisional games and Vick gives the best chance to do that it’s not as if Foles is going to light it up in the passing game and if that’s not going to happen you need a running game which the team won’t have much of if Foles is qb if this game is any indication

      • The Truth

        But yet you want to jump on Foles nuts and bench Vick just cause you dont like him. Vick gives us the best option to win, you thinking Foles does, shows how well you know this game.

      • #7

        You were calling for Foles man. That’s why I call you flip flop.

        • Token

          I wanted him to win the job for the reasons ive stated today. Playing Vick makes no sense. Unless you think its a playoff team. What sense does playing a 1 year rental make?

          Foles showed in preseason he wasnt good enough to be THE guy for the next however many years.

          I have no faith in Barkley.

          They need a top QB next draft.

  • Eagles4Life

    We need to at least ATTEMPT to run the ball. Jesus.

  • Token

    Kelce getting ABUSED today.

  • The Truth

    12 point lead blown in the second half by our OFF and DEF, Giants dont even have any TO left, manage the clock!!!!

  • UKEagle99

    Yup, we are definitely killing it now Vick is out. This is what I hoped our O would like look with Foles in. None of that downfield bomb, holding the ball too long crap, just pure clinical precision. Lol, if only!! Still, at least we’re going against the #1 defence in the NFL…

    • Token

      Have you been watching the O since week 2? Man o man people are clueless.

      • UKEagle99

        Yes I have, review my comments, I have been hard on the O since week 2 BUT it is not all on mike Vick.

  • Token

    Shoot it may be lucky, but ill take it

    • The Truth

      Now lets watch Foles capitalize on this

      • The Truth

        Perfect

  • Pennguino

    DEFENSE!!!

  • UKEagle99

    Go on Eli!!!

  • Michael Myers

    that foles on jackson headrub was enlightening

  • Token

    Needed that TD badly.

  • Pennguino

    TD!!!!

  • UKEagle99

    Omg!! Celek donating this weeks salary to Stickum

  • The Truth

    That was an impressive long throw from Foles

  • Pennguino

    I still hate those lolly pop throws from him. But I’ll take it every day if it’s a TD

  • Eagledelphia

    Eagles get pressure, an interception, Hell of a throw by Foles and Celek made a catch is this real life?

  • #7

    Celek caught it. Unbelievable

    • The Truth

      I agree, but that was a great throw from Foles. Celek would have been slapped if he didnt catch that

      • #7

        He’s had a few great throws that he’s dropped. Glad he finally caught one

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

        Have you seen some of the ones he’s dropped recently?

        • The Truth

          Sadly yes, I really want to see more Ertz and Casey. I think the Celek train has run its course.

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

    Celek caught a ball. JESUS!!!!!

  • Pennguino

    Let’s go defense. Need a stop and the O needs another score

  • Token

    Boykin wow. Put him in on offense…….jk…….maybe

  • Pennguino

    INT

    WOW…Great play by MANkin!!!

  • Eagledelphia

    Another interception… Jesus take the wheel(or Eli)!

    • Pennguino

      bwahahaha. I know that song. Funny

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

      LOL

  • UKEagle99

    Great play from a NT/DE/OLB/Nickel

  • Eagledelphia

    Damn the same Giants can’t cover but a great job by Foles of stepping up and Desean by making plays.

  • The Truth

    nice Foles!!!

  • Token

    Great anticipation throw.

  • Pennguino

    He needed to man up and power that ball

  • Pennguino

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA A fade to our shortest WR????/

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

      Didn’t like the play. Any other D that ends badly. And DJax juke made that play possible…but still…STILL…

      • UKEagle99

        I’ll take Revis on that next week… but thats next week :-)

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

          Exactly. I don’t want to see a fade to a midget receiver next week. Please. No.

      • Pennguino

        No ma’am. I liked the execution of the play. Just wasn’t expecting a fade to back corner with our shortest WR. I am happy as He!!

  • UKEagle99

    Good drive, great anticipation at the end. Kudos Foles, again.

  • #7

    Nice throw Foles

  • Eagledelphia

    Dangerous play by Foles on that read option though of you are going to keep it and run you better do it full speed with conviction half speed is how you get hurt

    • Pennguino

      True. He needed to be a man on that run

    • UKEagle99

      He’s not hurt so he did it at full speed with conviction? Or does your theory suck?

      • Pennguino

        That was actually funny…lol

      • Eagledelphia

        Not at all everyone who has ever played or watched football knows you can’t play slow and indecisive and if you do that leads to a greater chance of getting hurt. Foles did not run full speed and was tentative so he had a greater chance of getting hurt

        • UKEagle99

          Vick has never looked tentative, he gets hurt quite a bit. Injuries are random, if you have a formula then you should throw Chip an email and get on the staff.

          I have both played and watched, just my opinion.

          • Pennguino

            Have to disagree. Vick was tentative in the Denver Game. He just came off the poor performance in KC and it showed in Denver. There were a lot of throws he would not attempt

          • UKEagle99

            We were talking QBs running….

  • UKEagle99

    Got to love Eli.

    • Eagledelphia

      Yep only Eli could throw three picks to this defense

      • UKEagle99

        Heh yeah. He may be clutch but he sucks, a lot. I like him, I hope he plays longer than Peyton :-)

  • Pennguino

    C’mon! We needed that kick

    • UKEagle99

      Aye.

  • Pennguino

    Curry time

  • Pennguino

    Twice now both the CB and S take the inside guy

  • Eagledelphia

    Bennie Logan is alive!

  • Pennguino

    This defense, like most needs the offense to get a lead so they can pin their ears back. We have the pass rushers but never the lead. A good offense is your best defense.

    • UKEagle99

      Or… Hope that Eli gets traded to the next 11 teams we play?

      • Pennguino

        hehehe

  • Pennguino

    Glad to see Foles played well. Came out hot with some quick throws and then hit the lull. Fought back and got some different plays and scored a TD in the red zone. Lets hope Lane Johnson is ok.

  • Token

    A win is a win, but I still dont like a lot of what im seeing. Looked like two bad teams playing each other today.

    Hopefully the Vick era is done. I can deal with sucking as long as I dont have to watch him play the game anymore.

    • Token

      Ray Diddy and Wesbrook talking on postgame. Basically agree, just no rhythm to this offense. Just kind of random. Thought Chips offense was all about rhythm and tempo. Westy was wondering when the high tempo offense might start showing itself again….. yea im wondering that too. Just weird.

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

      lol. You’d rather lose just to not have to watch a player you don’t like.

      Unbelievable.

      • Token

        Well we didnt lose tho…….

        this is a bad team regardless of who starts at QB.

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

          I’m talking about in general.

  • Token

    Time to sit back a watch Peyton demolish the Cowboys D.
