  • Will

    Crush the Cowgirls under the Linc today Go Eagles!!!

  • RIP illa

    Not a great start

  • Johnny Domino

    How do they let Aikman call this game?

  • RIP illa

    Special teams stepping up. Now time for the D. Will be interesting to see how Davis plays Dez and Witten cause that’s all the Boys got for weapons really. But judging off of our past games, it’ll probably be another unexpected cowboy player that we will have trouble w/. Lets go defense

  • RIP illa

    Beautiful stop by Mecc

    • cliff henny

      thanks dallas for doing us a favor and running.

      • RIP illa

        Seriously.

        • cliff henny

          i’d just throw it to witten 20 times. havent covered a TE in 4 or 5 yrs

          • RIP illa

            Nor have we been able to get a good consistent pass rush.

  • Pennguino

    Well that first drive could have went better.

  • Johnny Domino

    Fire me up another Quino, willya?

    Wit.

  • RIP illa

    Like how Coop worked back on that.

  • Johnny Domino

    “functional mobility”

  • Token

    Leave Bryce on the sideline

    • Johnny Domino

      Let the Tucker era commence

    • Eagledelphia

      Agree shouldn’t be in the game unless Shady is about to die

    • #7

      More consistent touches would help, but he’s obviously not going get that here in Philly

  • Andy124

    Need better run blocking.

    • cliff henny

      BB needs not to get tackled by the chalk. was good hole.

      • Andy124

        Yeah, just meant in general. Shady’s plays haven’t been blocked well.

  • RIP illa

    Would love some penetration right here…Cox!!!

  • RIP illa

    Great coverage by Kendricks. Made that play.

  • Johnny Domino

    No stupid stuff, please

    • Andy124

      Too late. The cowboys are already on the field.

  • cliff henny

    witten, 112 catches most vs any team…no great shock there. believe he could be retired for 10 yrs, and still catch 6-75 and a TD against us

  • RIP illa

    Hells Yeah!!!!! Mecc playing well early and often.

  • RIP illa

    Jason Garret doesn’t run the Dallas O Troy!

  • cliff henny

    dumb punt. what does 22 yrds get them? eagles havent covered a 6-7 middle pass yet this year. like when teams play not to lose

  • Token

    Train wreck right now. Gotta get in sync boys!

    • cliff henny

      pretty much. 2 stops by defense is encouraging. 3’s asking alot

      • Token

        Huge stops for D so far. O is doing zero

        • cliff henny

          has to be first time this yr D caused opp to punt 3 times in a row

  • B-West

    When did Andy get back on the sideline? Enough with the cute crap, get back to the bread and butter. Hand the ball off to Shady

    • RIP illa

      We’re not running well either.

      • B-West

        3 carries for Lesean…. How can you say that with any certainty?

        • RIP illa

          You gotta count the carries for Brown too. Can’t pick and choose. And what were the results of those carries? I’m not saying abandon the run, not at all. But people who just scream out run the ball, not necessarily you, give no credence to what Dallas is doing to us and the D looks they’re showing. It’s not as simple as just run the ball is all I’m saying.

  • #7

    Defense is looking good so far. Hope we can keep it up

  • RIP illa

    Interesting play calls by the cowboys O-coord…do not go to Dez early and often!!! I’ll take it. Thank you.

  • Eagledelphia

    Run the damn ball!

    • Token

      Hes getting cute.

      • Eagledelphia

        Unfortunately that’s the case right now he should never call three straight pass plays unless the team is down big

      • RIP illa

        Since when are screen plays “getting cute”??? He’s not calling gadget plays or trick plays. He’s trying to get the ball in the hands of his playmakers. Run the ball mantra only works if we’re running well, which we aren’t. Balance is good and most welcomed, but we have to get stuff going in the air as well. Hence balance.

  • Token

    Disaster

  • Token

    Cant blame the D. They wont be able to hold forever

  • #7

    McCoy dancing too much

  • Pennguino

    Need to get something going to build on

  • UKEagle99

    The curse of the Linc lives on, need to exorcise that son of a ….

  • Eagledelphia

    Vinny!

  • nicksaenz1

    VINNYYYYYYY!!!!

  • Token

    Lets go offense reward this D

  • Pennguino

    D is balling out. Lets GO O!

  • #7

    They’re not even honoring the RO fakes. Nice play by Cooper

    • RIP illa

      We knew it was gonna happen when D’s play Foles and run man cov. But to Foles credit he has been scrambling on them for some good yards.

      • #7

        Yep he has

        • anon

          Vick should take him on the track and help him out.

          • RIP illa

            Lol. There’s no help for 4.9-5.0 speed.

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

            Prayer.

            That’s about it. lol.

          • #7

            See here ya’ll go lol.

  • RIP illa

    Big play Coop…bout time you use your size. Most appreciated.

  • #7

    3 and out again smh

  • Token

    This is depressing

  • Eagles4Life

    DeSean had Carr in trouble…PULL THE TRIGGER

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

      He’s not comfortable throwing down field. Vick doesn’t like throwing short. It is what it is.

      • Eagles4Life

        I know, but he showed the willingness last week at least. And that was against a better defense. Looking skittish today. Smh.

        • anon

          Zone D.

          • Eagles4Life

            That’s true, but there were some man looks too. He’s hesitant today. We need this win though, so I need him to get over that sh!t asap lol

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

          Zone D my friend. Zone D.

        • #7

          Zone D my friend. Zone plays in to Nick’s hands. I figured that he could “throw guys open” but he’s failing to do that

          • Eagles4Life

            They played some single high last week too, but he’s not slinging it now. I don’t know what those last 3 throws were either.

          • #7

            That was my point last week as far as “slingin” it. Foles was playing free those two games and you could see it and he looked great

  • anon

    Should have made Vick active for this game.

    • #7

      you’re about to open a can of worms with that comment

      • anon

        Unless things change significantly, it’s going to happen starting at 4pm.

        • #7

          lol

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

          lol

  • nicksaenz1

    Nothing about this game is going as anyone expected. Shootout? Someone might get shutout at this point.

    • RIP illa

      When has a NFC east game ever been what anyone expected let alone a shootout? Either one team gets destroyed, or both teams play real physical hard nose D, or both teams play sloppy. That’s the East for you.

  • Eagledelphia

    Had Jeff there who should have caught it but Foles has to get that in front of him

    • #7

      Inaccurate throw

      • Andy124

        A lot better than the throw that Casey dropped.

        • RIP illa

          Was that a dig at Vick? Cause if so, you win dumbest comment of the day!!!

          • #7

            Foles isn’t allowed to be critiqued I guess. It was an inaccurate throw. Just called it as it was

          • Andy124

            Not a dig at anyone. People lack consistency. Want to give Vick credit for a TD pass because Casey didn’t make a really difficult catch, but blame Foles for when Meahl drops a very catchable ball.

          • #7

            Why does that game or throw even matter right now

          • anon

            People only caring about the QB, not the game.

          • #7

            I mean come on, I’m not riding Foles hard at all. Pulling for him to do wel

          • Andy124

            pulling for Foles while you sit back and wait for that train to crash.

          • anon

            I don’t think anyone here wants anthing else but for us to win the game. Save that Vick / Foles for after the game.

          • RIP illa

            No that was you every week that Vick played and your posting showed. Stop it kid!!! Lets pull for the team instead of the QB and wait till after the game, when we have all week to bash one or the other!

          • #7

            Ah hell dude can we move on? I’m pulling for Foles. What more do you want? I want us to win. Are you getting nervous Andy124?

          • Andy124

            Nervous? Damn straight I am. If all anyone has to do is man us up to shut us down and even a bad D can bottle us up, that’s a scary thought. Us not being able to run the ball at will this game definitely makes me nervous.

          • Andy124

            Meant to reply to the other post.

          • #7

            I ask if you’re nervous because you seem to be pulling just for the QB and he’s not playing well like you said he could/would. I see your points, but you sure are super protective of Foles right now.

            No malice meant in this post

          • RIP illa

            Ok just making sure we didn’t have a winner. People just need to hold both QBs to equal standards and stop “Richard” riding them!!! Foles is facing a tough man D and is looking similar to how Vick looked when he faced the same type of Ds. Just hope we as a O, get it together and find a weakness to exploit and make some damn plays.

          • Andy124

            I was hoping he’d fare better, but obviously not so far.

          • #7

            “Richard” riding them!!”

            LOL I know all about that

  • anon

    Billy Davis!!

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

    The defense has showed up. So YEAH!!!!!

  • anon

    Sconces f*ing up. Head on a swivel.

    • #7

      lol

  • anon

    Who would have ever thought Philly had run D.

  • anon

    STOP!!!!

  • RaiderDebo

    Why even bother with the play fakes??

    • #7

      no need. cowgirls don’t even honor the fakes

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

        I mean really. Just stop already.

  • Token

    Hard to watch. Just putrid offense

    • anon

      Yeah, like d*mn. I sort of think Nick should be anticipating better. Seems a little late on throws to wheel routes.

    • #7

      He’s not throwing guys open, which is supposed to be his specialty. Hope this gets better

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

        Our guys aren’t even NFL open. Funny how folk can see it now. Thank goodness.

        • #7

          Easy now

        • RIP illa

          100% correct! No shame in it. He’s not playing horrible. Just gotta pull it together and he and Chip gotta overcome it.

          • anon

            It’ll be a little said if we can’t beat man coverage for the 3rd time this year.

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

            Our receivers are who they are…

          • anon

            Isn’t someone supposed to be throwing them open?

          • RIP illa

            See told you…TEs!!! He should have hit that corner route tho…horrible throw.

          • #7

            Yes, that is correct.

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

            I”m not even going there. I’ll let the game do the talking. lol

          • Eagledelphia

            Better yet “they are who we thought they were”… And we let em off the hook last week

          • anon

            That’s b.c foles was throwing to them.

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

            Exactly.

          • RIP illa

            2nd favorite rant quote next to A.I.

          • RIP illa

            Sorta, but I mean what can you expect. We have one legit WR, not including Avant who is better at finding the sweet spot in zone. We can still win this game tho just need to start utilizing the TEs and getting them involved in some seams, and picks, and corner routes.

          • #7

            Gonna have to take a shot downfield at some point. Like I’ve said, dink and dunk plays into the D’s hands, especially a team that can play man coverage and make the tackles

          • anon

            yup. I think Foles can do it. But need the deep threat to open up the middle of the field.

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

            Without the threat of the QB running AND the threat of a deep throw…defense can just sell out on the run and sit on those short routes. No one is surprised at how Dallas decided to play us. At least they shouldn’t be.

          • RIP illa

            Shoulda been how Tampa played us but they are O-fer for a reason.

          • #7

            There it is

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

            Yeah. That was DUMB. DUMB. DUMB.

  • #7

    Man this is terrible

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

    I feel like I’m living in a football Twilight Zone. What the heck is going on? lol/smh

  • Eagledelphia

    Hopefully Chips famous adjustments show up at half or preferably the next drive

    • anon

      Yeah we’ll see who the better coach is after half time. But limiting dez is pretty awesome.

  • #7

    How man 3 and outs in a row is this? Wow. Dallas’s D isn’t THAT good

  • Eagledelphia

    Cary getting worked

  • anon

    I see the TD drough should be over.

  • Johnny Domino

    Fletch don’t need no stinking sconces

  • anon

    EAGLES D!!!!!

  • RaiderDebo

    Block would’ve been huge.

  • Eagles4Life

    Missed him smh

  • #7

    Cmon Foles. Wide open. No pressure in the pocket at all. Expecting you to play well

  • Eagledelphia

    Who is Nick throwing to right now?

  • RaiderDebo

    Wow! Foles hurt now????

    • RIP illa

      Injury prone…Lol! Just playing. Hopefully he’s alright cuz I do not wanna see Barkley at all this year!!!

      • anon

        Haha i know. Needs to learn to slide.

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

        No Barkley :-(

        • anon

          Chip probably sad he didn’t activate Vick.

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

            He might be…

  • #7

    Uh oh. That man has no business running.

    • Johnny Domino

      Needs to learn to slide

      • #7

        If he slides Foles will get even less yards. Might as well get rid of RO part of the offense with Foles in

  • Eagledelphia

    I’m doing the “Julio” right now hoping Cooper can channel his football spirit and score a long td

  • Stuart Philp

    terrible. what is going on :(

    • Eagles4Life

      bad passes smh

  • Eagledelphia

    What does it meannnnnnn Bazzle?

  • Andy124

    Worst toss of the day…

    • anon

      You did a lot of s*** talking all week about Foles.

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

        Be nice.

      • Andy124

        If you say so. Just means that when I criticize, it’s coming from a fair place.

        • #7

          LOLOLOL!!!! What?!?!?

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

          Huh?

          • Andy124

            You all really need an explanation? It means the criticism is coming from someone watching with open eyes instead of someone who’s been talking ish about him all week and is looking for validation.

          • #7

            I wouldn’t know. I’ve been on hiatus this week

          • nicksaenz1

            I got what you said bud.

      • #7

        So much that I had to take a hiatus from these threads

  • Eagledelphia

    Not gonna bag on Foles right now he’s the qb today and that’s that we all want a win here so hopefully he picks it up

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

      Let’s go second half!!!!

      • Stuart Philp

        there’s still time in this half!

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

          I’m over this half. lol

    • Pennguino

      He is looking off for sure. No rhythm at all

    • #7

      All we can ask for

  • anon

    Sconces!! DoIng it ugly.

  • RaiderDebo

    One thing I have to give Foles though. No turnovers. Keeps this a winnable game.

  • #7

    Look at Nick Foles!! Boy some some skills on the court

  • Token

    What a bonehead decision.

    • RIP illa

      Now that I can agree on.

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

      yeah

  • RIP illa

    That kid sucks for long FGs!!! Reid knew it. Chip should have known.

  • Stuart Philp

    is the ghost of andy reid haunting the linc?

  • Eagledelphia

    Kid can’t make a 45 yarder you thought he was going to make a 60?

    • RIP illa

      I think you’re being too generous…I don’t trust him w/ anything over 40!

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

        lol

  • nicksaenz1

    Foles should have gone to Coop instead of D-Jax on that last throw. It may have been the slowest double move ever, it seemed like it worked and he was going to be open.

  • #7

    Say what you want about Vick, but I don’t recall us having ZERO at halftime with him under center this year.

    • RaiderDebo

      Amen to that!

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

      Be nice…

    • Andy124

      Didn’t I just get jumped all over for this? By you?

      • #7

        It’s just the truth Andy124, not criticizing. Also, I’ve been off of this site for a week now, therefore, I could not have talked crap about Foles in any way.

        • Johnny Domino

          Nobody takes attendance

          • #7

            LOL yep you’re right. I figured you guys would have noticed :)

          • Johnny Domino

            Thought you had the week 8 bye

        • Andy124

          It was this week when you said you were sitting back to watch the train crash, so I’m not sure what you mean.

          • #7

            Well Andy, I’m still not on the Foles bandwagon, but that does not mean I don’t want the Eagles to win. You guys and the media of course, hyped Foles up big time. I was hoping that he could live up to it and he still has a chance.

            You guys said he could throw guys open and we’re not seeing it. Looks like #10 was pissed about that deep throw out of bounds before the 60yd FG. I think Vick hits that throw

          • Andy124

            I don’t blame you for not keeping track, it’s not possible, but “throwing people open” is not something I remember typing.It’s always been about giving him a chance to struggle and grow with it. Find out if he can get the job done. I’m certainly not going to make up my mind about him after 1 bad half of football, nor 1 bad game should it continue.

          • #7

            Aight cool

    • nicksaenz1

      At least he’s not throwing picks.

      • RIP illa

        Yeah cuz Vick has how many on the season??? RIIIGGGHHHHTTT!!!

        • nicksaenz1

          2 more than Foles…

          • #7

            He might pass him up if Foles keeps being inaccurate at this rate

          • nicksaenz1

            No argument, he’s off the mark right now. Every QB has an off game, though. Wish it wasn’t this one.

          • #7

            I wish that this type of statement was made for both QBs

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

            RIght?

      • #7

        Nothing wrong with finding the positive. You’re right

        • nicksaenz1

          That’s how I intended it. He’s definitely not having a good game. I credit the Dallas D, certainly, but he’s missed a few too many as well.

  • RaiderDebo

    Nothing wrong with Chip’s decision IMO.

  • #7

    60 FG.

  • Token

    Well, thats about as ugly as a offense can look.

    Unless he does a 180 in the 2nd half, Foles is toast.

    Nobody can say he didnt have his chances. This is his 3rd chance at being a NFL starter and hes blowing it again.

    May be seeing Matt Barkley next week.

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

      Vick should be back next week

    • Stuart Philp

      Vick will be in next week if Foles can’t put it together here in the second

    • nicksaenz1

      You’re merciless.

      • Token

        Bad play is bad play regardless of who it is right?

        Foles looks scared to death out there. Dunno how else to put it. Completely off his game. Hes not even making the easy throws that he usually makes.

        That was the main thing I was watching today. Seeing how Foles handled his biggest game yet. Pressure game. Hes failing right now.

        If hes got anything, you want to see him come out this 2nd half completely different.

        • nicksaenz1

          He doesn’t look scared at all. It’s a bad game all around. He’s missed some shots. A couple drops. Some shaky line play.

          • Token

            Hes had time, missed multiple shots, drops were from bad throws. Why do people expect WRs to make acrobatic catches consistently?

            There are no excuses.

            If you get two hands on a ball, or it hits your chest, you can catch it. That said, I’m not blaming them, he’s gotta make some better throws. Agree there.

          • Token

            Thats a nice line they tell you in Pee Wee. But its far from that easy. The chest, certainly. But these balls thrown behind you a tough.

            Yep, this is the NFL.

    • anon

      HAHAA all that Foles talk all week and you quit on him after one bad half. Nevermind should have expected that. Let him at least play the whole game.

  • nicksaenz1

    Let’s go Chip, make a couple of adjustments, very winnable game right now. Billy D, keep callin’ a great game.

    • Stuart Philp

      Here’s hoping they notice something with the matchups they can exploit, cooper might be it. Have to get McCoy going too.

      • nicksaenz1

        McCoy is the key. He needs to stop dancing, though. The line looks shaky, too.

        • Token

          No reason for this line to be manhandled by a bunch of guys who didnt play NFL football last year. Embarrassing.

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

          They are keyed on McCoy. They aren’t letting him get anywhere. One of the receivers are gonna have to step up.

          • nicksaenz1

            I agree they’re keying on him, as they should. But he’s dancing. He needs to find even the slightest crack and fall forward for a few instead of dancing around behind the LOS and losing yards.

          • RIP illa

            That same dancing got him to leading rusher in the league. Wasn like the line was dominating for him. Can’t have it both ways.

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

            Pretty much. Gotta take the good with the bad.

  • anon

    I know i’m guilty of this. But i’m going to say moratorium on the V vs. F until the game is over. Our team needs our collective presence to get this W. D is playing like hot fire. All we need is a TO. We get the ball to begin the half. E-A-G-L-E-S. EAGLES!

    I’m sure Vick is giving Foles some mentoring time in the lockerroom.

    • nicksaenz1

      D is playing GREAT so far. Love and miss seeing this type of D.

  • RIP illa

    Can everybody pleased stop being shocked that we are struggling against an opponent who’s not an O-fer team and plays man D against us!!!

    This is the blueprint to beat this offense. Our WRs struggle the most w/ this type of D and it effects BOTH our QBs!!! Foles is scrambling for yards. W/ Vick those scrambles could have put us in FG range so we coulda got some points on the board if not the lead! THIS IS NOT A KNOCK ON FOLES!!! Lets hope Chip makes some adjustments and Nick comes out and puts it together the 2nd 1/2.

    We gotta get the TEs more involved. This should mean more Ertz, Casey, and Celek, all 3!!! This is the only way we’re gonna win if Dallas’s D maintains their level of play, along w/ grinding it out on the ground a Lil more. Would like to see some power formations for the run game since the spread/read option is not faking out Dallas. Lets go Birds!!!

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

      Which is why many of us gave Tampa a STRONG side eye last week. Who the hell plays zone against this offense? But yeah…this isn’t a surprise, but I still wasn’t expecting it to be this bad, for either offense.

      • RIP illa

        That’s one of the reasons why I hate people…to blinded by their bias and stupid to realize the simplest things.

        • #7

          Ding Ding Ding!! You’re correct

    • Token

      Man D cant beat your offense. If it does, you dont have a very good offense. Plain and simple. Its up to Chip to figure this out. And for Foles to get the ball where it has to be.

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

        If guys aren’t open they aren’t open. Kelly nor Foles can make them get open.

        • Token

          Kelly has to figure how to make life easier. You cant get consistently beat by man or you are dead in the water.

          • #7

            Which would be to run the football. They are keying on #25. If your WRs can’t beat man, with either QB playing, what do you have?

            Nothing.

            Hard to win if guys can’t get open. The thing that troubles me is that Foles is supposed to throw these guys open and VIck was supposed to not be able to do it.

      • RIP illa

        Pay attention. We have 2 weapons/threats now that Vick is out. Desean and Lesean. Absolutely man D can beat out O. Yet still it’s Chip’s job to figure it out.

    • #7

      RO part needs to be scrapped ASAP. They aren’t honoring the fakes at all nor are they honoring any traditional playaction fakes.

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

        Yeah…no one is at least bit worried ’bout Foles running. They will crash on that EVERY TIME.

        • #7

          EVERYTIME

    • #7

      Also, we’re not seeing any of the bubble screens and quick throws that got Foles into a rhythm against Tampa. Not sure why any team would play zone against us anyway

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

        They are sitting on the short routes. They aren’t stupid.

      • RIP illa

        Yeah, we tried those! Cowboys are playing tight coverage. Not gonna work a lot against them. We still should keep running them but that’s not the answer.

  • Andy124

    More than anything, our inability to run the ball at will against their backups is disconcerting.

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

      Thats what i thought too until that PI call.

    If we give up a TD this could very well be the ball game. Dallas has made their adjustments and our D is failing.

    • Andy124

      At least wait to see if our O comes out better this half…

      • RIP illa

        Normally I would agree, but we are down 10 and since when has our O ever stopped out D from blowing games or making enough plays to win them. I’m not ready to give up on this game but I am looking at this realistically.

        • Andy124

          Now we can start dusting off the shovels…

          • RIP illa

            Lol. Still holding on to irrational hope that our D can get a couple pick 6s and a couple more TOs to give Foles a short field. That’s only like 4-5 TOs we need!!!

      Now wait a minute Token. You were hyping Foles up and wanting him to start. He’s starting. Why are you giving up? I’m not. I hope he leads a comeback. If Barkley comes in, THEN we’re done. It’s only 10-0

        • #7

          He wanted FOles to start to see what he has. Wanted Vick on the bench. That’s what I’m talking about, but he gets mad when someone points that out

          Its just what they do. If you dont like Vick, then you must be a huge Foles fan. Its moronic. But I expect nothing less.

          Foles showing this franchise for the 3rd time that he doesnt have it. Hes had 3 separate chances to be the man and failed. Time to see if Barkley has anything. I dont think he does, but lets see.

          Kelly better be talking to Mariota through back channels telling him to come out.

            He looked better than the rest of those QBs you guys discuss every week. Liking Johnny Football

          • Token

            Bridgewater isnt realistic.

            Really Mariota is the only guy im eyeing at this point. Hundley looked awful. But Mariota has 2 tough tests coming up

          • #7

            Yep, you’re right.

            “Bridgewater isnt realistic”

            I’ve told you that for months, but you couldn’t accept that from “vick folk”. You crack me up Token. You make it interesting on here

          • Token

            Again, Ive always said Bridgewater was out of reach. At least be accurate.

          • Token

            Well just so we are clear going forward.

            Teddy has always been my #1 guy. But he was never a option. Hes going #1.

            As of now, Mariota is the guy im watching close. But its not certain hes coming out. Like I said, maybe Chip can have somebody talk to him lol.

            No other QB in the draft really peaks my interest right now, in a draft that was supposed to be so good. Im curious to see how Hundley responds from his awful game.

          • #7

            You changed your stance, we are clear going forward. All of those QBs you’ve been mentioning for months struggled last week and Mariota has his share also. i wouldn’t rely so heavily on that this year.

            Look at the 49ers. Drafted Smith and though he was a bust, but they stuck with him, reluctantly, and built at other positions, then Kaep fell into their lap. We can’t reach on a QB. Not in this town. He’ll get eaten alive

          • Token

            Chip wont be here very long if he doesnt get the right QB this year.

            Let me guess though, you think Vick is the guy?

          • HowboutdemIggles

          • #7

            You didn’t call for him to start?

            “Its just what they do”

            Cmon man. Just keep it real. You expect everyone else to do the same

          • Token

            Process this thought….. Not wanting Vick to start does not equal being a Foles fanatic.

            I know its tough for you Vick “folk” to understand, but not all of us look out for just one player.

          • #7

            LMAO. Really Token? You make your argument for Foles to start and you are completely ignoring that thought right now after arguing with me for days/months.

            Why even mention college QBs right now…during a game that we’re still in? All I know is at least we could move the chains with Vick and I think we would win this game with Vick under center. Our D got 3 stops in a row for the first time all season. They are playing as good as we’ve seen all year. We “Vick Folk”. as you call us, know the game too, not just Token.

            Seems like you’re the one pulling for one player. You’ve already turned on the guy you’ve fought for even though you claim that you don’t like him.

            At least I’m consistent. We never know with you…EVER

  • Pennguino

    What an ugly game. Nothing to get excited for. Defense has played well in the first half. Offense is not holding up their part at all. They need to come out on fire. Has Chip made adjustments. Has Nick settled down.

      The bucs might not have won a game, but they have a great defense. Foles played well up until this game, but this was the real test and he failed.

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

        For the 50th time they played ZONE. That’s like stealing candy from a baby with this offense.

          You’re “Vick Folk” so you can’t possibly know anything about football.

        • Stuart Philp

          That’s a reductionist argument. You still have to execute. You still have to make good throws. You still have to make the right decisions.

          There were plays to be made today and Foles didn’t make them.

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

            “That’s a reductionist argument”

            No it’s not. You do still have to make plays…but that makes it 10x easier. Guys were WIDE open all over the place ALL day. That’s the BIG difference. Add in Tampa just played badly on top of that and you have a BIG day.

          • Stuart Philp

            You’re reducing it down to zone vs man. If only football was that simple.

            There were open receivers all day today too, but Foles was throwing it ahead, behind, and into the ground. Foles did not play well and that’s why we are losing today, not because Dallas played man.

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

            No I’m reducing it down to Zone vs Man for THIS team. Our guys can’t get off the line. That makes ANY QBs day much MUCH more difficult. AND b/c of Foles’ limitations makes it easier to take away the run. Which makes the QBs job MUCH MUCH more difficult.

            See how that works?

    • Pennguino

    Great learning experience for Foles. Hopefully he is OK and will start next week. Need to see how he bounces back by his performance this week.

    • #7

      Start next week? He’s not the starter man and he’s has 3 chances to take the job and couldn’t. Inaccurate and held the ball for ever. He’s supposed to throw guys open. That is said to be his strength

      • nicksaenz1

        It doesn’t say much about Vick that every time the guy behind him has a good game people want Vick replaced.

        • #7

          On these threads and SOME biased media, that is the case.

          Do you want to win or not nick? If Vick gets a game like this from the defense, we win. can’t bring up turnovers anymore because Vick takes care of the football. Foles had several instances where it should have been a pic

          • nicksaenz1

            Considering you have absolutely no idea what Dallas would’ve done defensively, you can’t say that. The ball would’ve likely moved more from better scrambling, but that’s the only definite…. Should’ve but weren’t pics. Again, no basis to say we win or even fare much better with Vick in the game.

          • #7

            We would have had more than 80 yards passing from 29 throws

          • nicksaenz1

            Probably, but you claimed a win. And you claimed Vick takes care of the football which is a joke given his career stats with turnovers. They’ve been better this year, but he STILL has more pics than Foles. If Vick is healthy, as I said before the Tampa game, he’s the starter. Sad Foles didn’t show up today, but that’ll be his burden to bear, while we fans have to wait for a QB until the draft, and even that’s no guarantee.

          • #7

            I believe we have a real QB on this roster right now and a competent backup with Foles. I don’t believe in college QB for the most part. They are mostly bad than good. If you can’t get a Luck or someone like that, what’s the point?

            Glad you see that the college QB isn’t guranteed though

          • nicksaenz1

            This isn’t the first time folk have played man against us.

          • nicksaenz1

            We were stopped last time a team manned up on us. And, again, you don’t know what they would have done against us. And if our o-line run blocked like today, they both would’ve been stopped.

          • RIP illa

            The last time a team manned up on us was the Giants and I would hardly call that stopping us. As Vick had 79 yards rushing and we had the lead before he went out!!! Try again!

          • nicksaenz1

            Great, we all know Vick can run, McCoy didn’t have a good game that game, and most of Vicks yards were scrambles, not on RO or designed runs.

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

            Vick also put up 104 yards…or did u forget about that too?

            They were comparable.

          • RIP illa

            Lol.

          • nicksaenz1

            Both the QBs have had great moments and really bad ones. We’re a 3-4 team. And since Foles doesn’t seem to want to seize the opportunity to take the job, we’re looking like QB shoppers next year. That’s the bottom line here. Arguing back and forth over who should start is senseless if neither are going to play well to stay the starter long term. Vick doesn’t play well enough that he has job security after injury and Foles doesn’t take the job away when he has the chance. Sucks for all of us.

            Giants have a terrible defense.

          • Pennguino

            Don’t you know that is his secret???? He waits for Man coverage and then holds the ball really long so the defenders are 40 yards then he runs. He holds the ball so long to pad his running stats. :|

          • RIP illa

            And pads our points on the board even if it’s a lot of FGs. Hell that could have won us the game today!!!

        It was a bad game on his 8th start. Give the kid time to develop so you can determine what you have. I know he look like crap today. Give him three more games and see what happens. Can he develop? Can he mature in this offense? We already know Vick is not the answer at all. Barkley is having a rookie day today.

          We could have won this game. Lots of yards left out there because the Cowgirls did not respect/fear Foles.

          Chip’s bread and butter for the run game, the RO, was completely shut down. They went away from that and it got worse. There is no “time to develop” anymore. These rookie QBs are coming into the league ready to play for the most part.

          Sorry. No faith in Barkley at all. I would rather have Foles over him any day of the week

    • Uriel Fernandez

      He was pretty good in college idk why you would have thought that, I wasn’t sure about his Pro prospects but he was a great College QB

      • #7

        Easy to be good in college

        • Uriel Fernandez

          I wouldn’t say it’s easy to be good in college but yeah success in college doesn’t always translate to success in the NFL and vice versa, was just questioning how anybody could think that he was a bad QB in college

          • #7

            A lot of great players at USC. Most years they have several NFL prospects on their team including his time there

  • nicksaenz1

    Good work Mark. You made Foles look not so bad today.

    • Uriel Fernandez

      LOL

  • Johnny Domino

    Safer than a punt at this point

  • nicksaenz1

    Sucks we lost this game, but kudos to the D and to Bill Davis. Gave him a lot of flack for some of the more questionable decisions earlier this year but he seems to be on the right track.

    • Eagledelphia

      For sure still too much off coverage for my liking but whatever

      • anon

        this D won’t shut anyone out, but we did have a key turnover in the 4th that should have gotten us right back into the game. They put us in a position to win.

        • #7

          IN THE REDZONE…and we did nothing

    • Pennguino

      Good showing by the D. Encouraging that they may be turning it around.

    • Uriel Fernandez

      Yup

  • Eagledelphia

    Well at least the birds play the giants next week

    • UKEagle99

      At home! We suck at the Linc.

  • Johnny Domino

    If he was a drop back passer, he might have won a SB by now, Troy

  • Eagledelphia

    Barkley has the pucks but at least he’s letting in rip

    • nicksaenz1

      It’s his rare chance to and he’s playing in meaningless time. He better let it rip.

  • UKEagle99

    FFS lose 12, just beat the Giants and the Cowboys! Dan Sneider will beat the ‘Skins!

  • Token

    4 picks in 1 quarter. Thats impressive.

    • UKEagle99

      On the plus side, that’s more completions than Foles, who looked like they got McNabb in to coach him. We suck at the Linc.

      • HowboutdemIggles

        He had a Vick type game

    • Pennguino

      lol….ugly

  • Andy124

    Rookie in garbage time. This is what it looks like.

  • Eagledelphia

    Still encouraged with Barkley arm looks pretty good the reads don’t but it’ll get better with reps and game experience (that he probably won’t get)

    • Token

      They need a legit QB come April.

      • UKEagle99

        They need a new stadium just as much.

        • Token

          worst home field advantage in the NFL.

          • #7

            Really? Why?

          • Token

            Seriously? 9 straight losses at Home. Even with your lover at QB.
            Maybe the quietest stadium there is. Sterile disaster of a place.

            Then you factor in the terrible field. Consistently one of the worst fields in the league. Why no field turf yet? That, if anything, would help a Chip team.

          • #7

            Just asking. No malice at all

          • UKEagle99

            You needed to ask? Let me break it down for you…

            “One of these things is not like the others,
            One of these things just doesn’t belong,
            Can you tell which thing is not like the others
            By the time I finish my song?
            New Orleans, Kansas, Seattle, Philadelphia”

      • Eagledelphia

        Yeah for sure Mariota, Bridgewater, Maziell (maybe but I’m not sold)

        • cliff henny

          never be in running for TB, i just ignore him. MM by far and away. Hundley has all the raw tools.

  • Mr. Wu

    Eagles theme song

    • UKEagle99

      LMFAO. Lost on most people I’m sure but made a bad night brighter.

  • Johnny Domino

    Meanwhile, like last year, here come the Skins.

    Makes ya sick.

  • cliff henny

    8th start, so understand there’ll be some bad games. but man, what a crappy day to lay an egg foles-dallas-at home-for 1st place, GD-it! hope vick’s hammy is feeling better. tough to sit thru many more like that

  • UKEagle99

    I think we should draft CenturyLink Field in the 1st :D

  • Will

    McCoy and DJax no support all game….Foles just falls flat on his face terrible passes all game, what just happened? Defense for the Eagles was Awesome…Special Teams held Harris in check!

  • HowboutdemIggles

    Bad game for everyone, only 3 points, but I’m not going to stop supporting this football team the defense played way better than ever before, there’s still some work to be done, Vick is back next week, so that’s a good thing, Go Foles, Go Vick. It’s for beating the Giants, because that’s not hard to do, then on to Oakland hoping that gets them started.
    Fly Eagles Fly.

    • Token

      Edit: I was Out of line, you’re entitled to you’re opinion. Just dont know how people after all these decades can be so ra ra about this franchise.

      • HowboutdemIggles

        Shove it asshole

        • nicksaenz1

          CRIPPLE FIIIIGGGGHHHHTT!!!

          • RIP illa

            We’ve been disagreeing, but you sir get comment of the day!!! F’n hilarious!!!

          • nicksaenz1

            We disagree on two average QBs who show flashes. We’re all birds fans. And if we can’t make fun of such stupidity like message board tough guys duking it out, what can we agree on, RIP?

          • RIP illa

            Exactly

          • HowboutdemIggles

            Why I oughta… How about it guy huh? You wanna go? I eat punks like you for breakfast heh wiseguy?

          • cliff henny

            put on the hat, timmy

          • nicksaenz1

            Jimmy Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy….JIMMY!!!

      • #7

        Shut up? For what? What did he do wrong? Support the team?

      • HowboutdemIggles

        Why not? It’s football, even if they don’t win the rest of the year, this logo isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Fly Eagles Fly Bleed green until the day I die.

  • HowboutdemIggles

    It’s like it can’t be both things clicking, either the offense is stale and the QB can’t complete passes, and the defense is swell, or the offense is beasting and scoring, and the defense couldn’t stop anybody. Then when they put it together both sides, they can’t keep it up. I’m willing to go through a couple bad seasons. I’ve been a fan since 04 so I’ve never been through the Hoying days, but to a better future. Fly Eagles fly.
