    Gotta win this game today..people write the packers off without Seneca, but that’s a veteran, well coached team…when a star QB like Rodgers goes down, the defense knows they have to step up and basically shoot for close to a shut out…this dynamic should make a packers dense dangerous today even if they aren’t very good,,

    Packers have huge Dlinemen, and Clay isn’t in game shape…it’s crucial that we get in a Rythm so we can crank up the tempo and wear down the front 7…

    I hate these trap game tests…they are dangerous, and when you win them you won’t get any credit…hopefully we come out fired up, and not overlook this team

    • Richard Colton

      If your boy St. Nick throws 3TDs and 280 yds +, I’m buying a #9 FOles jersey in honor of both of you.

      • Andy124

        You and me both. I’m still on my first jersey… from 20 years ago.

        • Richard Colton

          my kids got me a beautiful alternate black jersey w/ COLTON on the back from the NFL team store, but I feel like a choad for wearing it. rules are rules.

          • GEAGLE

            Had to be bittersweet when you saw it :)
            ..
            Choad isn’t used enough around here lol

      • GEAGLE

        I got my Cary Williams jerz on at the moment

        • Andy124

          Still sporting Andy Harmon. Guy has an awesome first name.

      • Brian

        Better start shopping. Lol…

    • RIP illa

      I don’t think it’s necessarily wrong for some of us to write off GB. I do understand your concern, however this is a game we should win hands down. I think the only trap is if we come out slow and off…not executing. GB’s D front maybe big, but as long as we keep up the tempo that’s gonna work to their disadvantage. Plus how we keep it spread out w/ our personnel package, I think that D can be easily worn down by 1/2…granted, as long as we execute. This is the game where I’ll appreciate Chip’s stretch plays more and will not be calling for multiple TE sets. No packing it in…spread em out and go to work!!! We got this!!!

      • cliff henny

        said it many times, about 8 teams are 1 rolled up knee from being 4-12 instead of 12-4, packers lead that group. and so the F what, i’ll take it!

  • Token

    Cheers to another Vick-less Sunday.

    • Andy124

      Relentless. I love it.

      • Token

        A Vick-less Sunday is the best kind of Sunday.

        • Richard Colton

          Imagine if we had traded Foles offseason for that phantom 2nd round pick. Between Vick’s injuries, Barkley not being anywhere near NFL ready, and Trent Edwards being Trent Edwards, the wheels would have fallen off by now

          • GEAGLE

            Ha

  • Johnny Domino

    Watching replay of last night’s US v NZ Maori rugby on FS1 until kickoff.

  • GEAGLE

    I’m out of the loop these past few days, have we already discussed Shawn Andrews claims of Mcnabbs bullying? If we haven’t, 97.5the fantastic, has Fridays interview with misanelli on it’s website

  • GEAGLE

    Today’s forecast in GB: Heavy RAIN when the rainmaker(Folesy) is in the building, with chances of thunderstorms(Lacy)…
    ….
    Front 7 has a unique opportunity to put a stamp on it’s development, take Lacy out of the game and gift wrap this win for us!!! DEFENSE!!! DEFENSE!!!nDEFENSE!!!

    • cliff henny

      OFFENSE !!! OFFENSE !!! OFFENSE !!! get up 14-0 in 1st, they can slam Lacey in there for 4-5yds all they want.

  • Johnny Domino

    US 9 NZM 7 at the half. Nice start for this group of Eagles, regardless of the outcome.

    Don’t tell how it ends up.

    • Richard Colton

      be great if Cox, Logan, and Thornton came out and did the Haka pregame.

  • Pennguino

    LETS ROLL!!!!!

  • Johnny Domino

    First fake injury. Is that on the Packers, or does Fox need the commercial timeouts?

    • cliff henny

      beat me too it…should keep running count p-1 e-0

  • RIP illa

    Great set of plays called to start off. The Foles RO on 3rd and 1 was brilliant. Wouldn’t mind seeing him do that on 3rd and short a lot more.

    • cliff henny

      it works, but it is ugly, especially after seeing vick

  • Token

    Man, the league has to figure something out with this fake injury crap.

    Make it so when you come out you must be out for the entire series. Justify it by saying they wanna make sure the player is really ok to keep playing.

  • RIP illa

    That’s when I don’t want Foles running. Damn…crappy end to a promising drive! Coop’s on my S-list right now, better make it up.

    • cliff henny

      all due to bad 1st down run.

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

      The key to Coop is not having great expectations where he’s concerned. He’s a 3rd/4th (maybe 5th) receiver. When you look at it through that lens than he is playing pretty well over all.

  • Pennguino

    Timer for the defense

  • cliff henny

    whelp, who are the Eagles defense going make look like an All-Pro this week

    • RIP illa

      Lol…we do have a bad habit of doing that. The hope is that we’ve shaking that stigma after the last couple of weeks.

      • cliff henny

        generally every tight end within 100 mile radius of the game. witten is 1st ballott hof just on eagles games

  • Johnny Domino

    Finally, a DB who can do some damage.

    Oooo, not so much

    • cliff henny

      damn, that was an andre waters special…wrong color jersey though

      • Andy124

        Who delivered that hit? Swear it looked like #42, but there’s no way Coleman is in the game. Right?

        • cliff henny

          might have been nate? the sole of dirty waters invaded his body for play

          • Andy124

            Wasn’t Nate. I saw him elsewhere.

  • RIP illa

    Very nice play by Goode! Love the aggressiveness

  • RIP illa

    Didn’t make the play, but Goode’s showing well right now!!! Love me some Mecco!!!

    • cliff henny

      how you slow that lacey down!

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

    Um..is Wallace looking…capable? O_o

    • cliff henny

      might take a series foor eagles to get a feel for what he can do…he cant get it downfield, thats for sure.

    • Johnny Domino

      I thought he looked like Katt Williams

  • Pennguino

    Great pressure

  • Pennguino

    MISSED

  • Pennguino

    Crap Peters is hurt

    • cliff henny

      just family jewels

  • Token

    LOL. Hey, sometimes you need a bit of luck.

    • cliff henny

      no luck lol

  • Pennguino

    Wasn’t pretty but I will take it

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

    Was that Peters?

    • cliff henny

      helmet to manhoods, i think… he’ll be fine, says the guy 1500 ms away on couch

  • RIP illa

    Sigh of F’n relief!!! Gotta do better Foles, but I’ll take it!

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

      Let’s just not do that again. That should have been a pick. Luckily they ran into each other. Touchdown! LOL

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

    Greenbay screwed themselves out of an interception. lol. Keystone copish looking moment.

    • RIP illa

      Uh oh…u pissed off a insane Foles fan!!! Lol

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

        I speak it’s a down vote. But I mean everyone saw the play. I’m not ragging on Foles – I’m ragging on Greebay’s defense. But the play was what the play was.

  • Johnny Domino

    And the end of Wallace era may be upon us.

    • cliff henny

      that was quick

  • Pennguino

    nice hit ROC

  • RIP illa

    That 1st call by Davis was great. See the 3rd stringer in…stack and crash the box and give our D some confidence that they can stop this rushing attack. Need a little less zone on the passing plays, but I won’t crucify him cuz GB’s WRs are kinda nice.

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

    What happened to Wallace?

    • RIP illa

      Seems to have pulled something. From the way he was trying to stretch, looks like his groin. Don’t know how severe

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

        Well I might just go back to doing my work if the 3rd stringer gonna be in. No real reason we shouldn’t come up with a W at this point.

        • cliff henny

          wins are nice, but its really all about foles, and ’14 qb draft

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

            I’m all about the wins. Draft will take care of itself.

          • Andy124

            Wait, so the more likely a win is, the less interested you are in watching?

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

            Not even near what I said.

          • Andy124

            Really?

            Well I might just go back to doing my work if the 3rd stringer gonna be in. No real reason we shouldn’t come up with a W at this point.

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

            And no where in there did I say :

            “the more likely a win is, the less interested you are in watching?”

            That’s you reaching for something that’s not there. As usual.

          • Andy124

            Whatever. I don’t mean to bust your “balls”. Just was a weird statement to me.

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

            Of course it was a weird statement to you. I said it. Typical.

          • cliff henny

            if foles can become nfl qb, draft is a heck of alot more interesting.

  • Pennguino

    penalty moved us out of FG range

  • RIP illa

    I thought stretches would be more effective against GBs big front, but I like it a lot better when we start runs to the inside and give our RBs the option to create. Way more effective!!!

    • Mike Calabrese

      That’s exactly how I feel about more inside runs bc McCoy will take outside if there he gets more room to do what he does.

      • RIP illa

        Yeah I was calling for them all season long for McCoy and Brown, but for some reason thought we could be quicker to seal the edge this game. Seems I was wrong.

  • Token

    Just put Peters out to pasture. Its just a old story line at this point. Peters injured, shocker.

    • cliff henny

      his 10m does scare me. achilles is just no joke to over 30 300+lb man. no issue paying LT 10m a yr, if he’s 25′ish and healthy

      • Token

        Theres no way he is here next year. They have to move on.

    • Stuart Philp

      He still looks great this year, I want to see what the injury is before filling his seat.

  • Pennguino

    Have to get it out quicker

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

    Held that a tad too long.

  • RIP illa

    Twice in a row Cole got his ass handed to him. 1st was a kick out block and last was just straight getting pushed back. Let’s see if GB keeps rushing away from Thorton and Barwin and how Davis adjust to help Trent out.

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

    I mean…they do know Lacy is gonna run the ball right?

  • Johnny Domino

    US 19 NZM 29 final. Even closer but for a late turnover. Ferocious hitting all around. A night in that scrum like surviving a car wreck.

    Back to the other Eagles.

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

    Push ups. I want to see pushups.

  • Token

    Of all the dumb things Chip challenges he misses the easiest call ever. wow

  • RIP illa

    Goode might be a sleeper!!!

  • Pennguino

    So Close

  • Token

    Hey was out of bounds

    • RIP illa

      Good call

    • Token

      not even a question.

  • Pennguino

    That pisses me off. Clearly out of bounds. There ws a HUGE hold by the oline that play too

  • RIP illa

    No F’n way their gonna see success running on Thorton/Barwin’s side. Keep it on Cole’s side and for the love of God Davis please help that side. Great play by Chung. He’s starting to grow on me.

  • Token

    This is embarrassing now

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

      Have faith

      • Andy124

        Nice timing lol

    • RIP illa

      You are way too negative…and this is coming from a person that’s called negative a lot. My usual response to that is that I’m not negative just real and see things clearly. Glad you vindicate my response!!!

  • Token

    BOYKIN WANTS TO MAKE A PLAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Johnny Domino

    I see your Boykin and raise you our Boykin.

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

    I might have spoken a little to early ’bout that 3rd stringer.

  • Pennguino

    MAN-KIN!!!!!

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

    Was that a pick?

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

      Yes. yes it was. Nice!

  • Token

    NO FLAG!?!?!?!??!?!?!!?

  • Token

    Worst officiating of the year so far

  • Pennguino

    We need shorter routes and quick passes

  • Stuart Philp

    Are these refs blind?

  • Token

    Bottom 5 kicker in the league. Absolutely needs to be gone. There are probably street kickers better, seriously.

  • Stuart Philp

    How do they miss that facemask?

    • Token

      Between that and the obvious Packer out of bounds call….man its bad so far. But we just have to play better overall.

  • Pennguino

    WTF!!!!!!!!!

    This is going to be one of those flat games.

  • RIP illa

    So far Foles is trying to keep the door open for Vick to comeback and play!!! Would rather see him play way f’n better and take the f’n reigns of this team!!! Don’t wanna use a 1st on a QB.

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

      Foles has the rest of the season before I make a decision on him. I doubt Vick plays again. But stranger things have happened.

      • RIP illa

        Didn’t say he would, just that Nick is keeping the door open. Said it yesterday, that if Foles plays well, then that door is sealed shut!!! If he’s up in down then Chip’s decision gets a lil tougher. Can’t have a shaky inconsistent QB again. Nobody liked that about Vick so why the Hell should anybody like it about Foles. Dude needs to step his game up and take control.

      • #7

        We will see Vick again. Write it down

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

          I doubt it. But like I said…stranger things have happened.

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

    This game is not going as I expected.

  • RIP illa

    Anything over 35 and that jackass is suspect! I hate Henery!!!

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

      Take deep breaths. Calm down. Remember it’s just a game.

      • RIP illa

        Lol. Wish Eagles games didn’t control the outcome of the upcoming week for me, but they do!!! I’m still not too worried about this game…just hate Henery!!! 4th rd pick…smh!

  • #7

    Looks like our kicker is ruined mentally

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

      He’s something.

  • Token

    Cary getting eaten alive as usual.

    • cliff henny

      these are the games he needs to sit…he’ll keep everything infront, but packers arent going to try and over the top much.

    • Stuart Philp

      This should be Cary’s game, the refs aren’t calling shit!

      • RIP illa

        Great point!!!

  • #7

    If we don’t win this game against their 3rd string QB……..

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

      It’s early. I’m not too worried. Yet.

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

    Who is this 3rd stringer? Ugghhh….

  • Stuart Philp

    Packers should have gone for it on 4th and 1. It’s obviously windy and hard to kick in Lambeau today.

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

      Agree

    • cliff henny

      probably why they’ve had cannon arm qbs for 2 decades too.

  • Brandon Boykin, OLB

    Can we start a Birds 24/7 petition to ban LanceMabry?

  • Pennguino

    That is crazy. That close up of the missed FG . The side he missed it looked like the flag was pointing straight out and the other flag was pointing straight down.

  • RIP illa

    2nd facemask missed!!!

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

      Yeah. Ealges don’t have much luck there. I just giave up on that already. At least we may be more inclined to get roughing the passer calls with Foles in. You know they never came with Vick.

      • RIP illa

        From your keyboard to Gods eyes!!! Lol.

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

          See!

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

    Um..what was that?

    • cliff henny

      think the techincal term is underthrow wobbling duck

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

        LMAO!!!!

  • Pennguino

    Foles looks off and hesitant a little bit. Need to get back to some short quick passes to get a rhythm going.

  • cliff henny

    o-line is playing like hot garbage…not sure anyone would look great behind them today, and wind doesnt seem to help much either

    • RIP illa

      Come on. Kid has had a whole lot of time in the pocket before getting touched!!! This isn’t even close to being on the O-line.

      • cliff henny

        he’s getting forced out a bunch. my issue with foles is he does need extra clean pocket, which isnt going to happen week in week out. he’s making way to many back foot throws. man, i just dont know about him…next 6 weeks should be fun

        • RIP illa

          I think that’s more on Nick than the O-line. Just like the Dallas game. And I’m sure his numbers would be similar, if not for the miracle to DJax. He’s being sloppy w/ his footwork, taking way too long to make a decision, and getting skittish for no reason…then when he should pull it down and take the yards he doesn’t. Yeah he’s showing nothing today. The line is actually holding up real well against GB’s massive front.

          • cliff henny

            maybe. just thinking that foles doesnt hide others mistakes like top nfl qbs do…only 10th start. like always, week to week all over the map with this guy.

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

      I mean they aren’t playing like they did last week, but Foles has had A LOT of time to throw.

      • cliff henny

        no running game, he isnt getting 2nd and 4s. it isnt a clean game. GB d-line is no joke

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

          No. It’s not clean. But he’s not gonna have a pristine pocket every week. He’s gonna have to get better when pressure is coming.

          • cliff henny

            yeah, sounds very true…line isnt playing great, and mistakes are magnified with foles, at least today they are.

        • RIP illa

          Running game was there earlier…he still looked shaky. This is on him. Although Chip does need to get it going again. Gotta get Nick some help w/ hitches to the WRs. I would say a couple of out routes, but that’s the one thing Foles has to show that he has the arm strength to do…I don’t trust him yet on those throws.

          • cliff henny

            couple very nice runs have been called back by penalties, then that’s allowing packers to get sub packages and get pressure. sure, it’s a full team effort. maybe hot garbage was too strong. just trying to put my mental spin on foles…damn i want him to be the answer so badly!

          • RIP illa

            I get it. The O-line has always been hit or miss in the run game…Shady covers up a lot of their mistakes. I want someone to be the answer too. Would be nice if that someone was young like Foles, but he doesn’t seem to want the job!!!

          • cliff henny

            good thing about foles is…next week he will

          • RIP illa

            LMAO. Your probably right.

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

            Foles is our Geno. Good on odd weeks. Not so good on even. lol

  • Mike Calabrese

    Run the ball!!

  • RIP illa

    What the F’n Hell Foles!!! He’s covered pull it down and run!!!

    • #7

      ………………

  • Mike Calabrese

    We need to run the ball inside the 10 yard line. Chip pulling an Andy.

    • UKEagle99

      Chip pulling an Andy.. I would pay not to see that.

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

    Wait…was that an interception? NOOOOOOO!!!!!!

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

      Okay saw that wrong. I was like WTF?

  • Johnny Domino

    Yeahhhhhh Boy……kin!

  • #7

    Right over the top of Boykin

  • Token

    Be thankful for no Rodgers today. It would have been UGLY.

    • cliff henny

      yup. dissappointed in offense today.

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

    Well I’m glad Rodgers was out today. It would have been a bloodbath.

  • #7

    We’re up 7 points against a 3rd string QB. I expected Foles to light these boys up.

    …………………..

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

      And GB’s defense is legit bad. lol. Sigh. We will see what the second half brings.

  • Pennguino

    First half was hard fought. No game this year has gone as anyone would have expected. Blatant missed calls. Bad FG attempts. No challenge on the obvious out of bounds pass. No continuity on offense. Defense is letting a 3rd stringer pick them apart. Looked like late in the second half both teams went to the pass more and got away from the run.

  • #7

    We need to get McCoy going. The ball needs to be in his hands. Take the ball out of Foles hands and give it to McCoy please!

    • Johnny Domino

      Looks like the Packer plan, too.

      • #7

        Just need to get the ball in the our best player’s hands

  • UKEagle99

    2nd half adjustments for the WIN !!!! Come on CK & BD, make us proud!!! o/ Eagles!

  • RIP illa

    Thornton has the left side of our run D on lock!!!

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

    So is the 3rd stringer really sorta kinda good or is our D just not that good?

    • Johnny Domino

      Yes

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

        LMAO!!!!

    • RIP illa

      He’s not necessarily good, but he’s not scared either. And w/ Davis calling zones, it just makes him seem better as Davis is betting that his zones can confuse the kid and force him to make errand throws. But even when man is called, Nelson is still a beast and Boykin is showing out on our D. Williams will never be great in coverage and Our Boykin should not be on the outside. This is why we need to draft a corner next year in the 2nd, IMO!!! Louchiez!!!

  • Token

    That is maybe the dumbest play I have ever seen in the NFL. Isnt Colt supposed to be a ST ace?

    • Stuart Philp

      Seriously. Lucky with the call, but that’s a bonehead play by Anderson

      • Token

        I just dropped my jaw in disbelief. Im not sure ive seen someone do that before. Especially considering the spot on the field its at.

    • #7

      Man I thought that was a TD for GB after Colt lost it. We can’t afford those type of mistakes since we can barely complete passes

  • RIP illa

    WTF Anderson!!! Thank god they ruled it downed!

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

    Alright. There we go. They listened to you #7. lol

    Nice play Cooper

  • RIP illa

    Great play by Coop!!! He needs to show that same toughness that he had on display at the Chesney Concert…I’ll fight every N-jury in here!!!

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

      Agree. Very nice indeed.

    Cliff…I hear you give any more talk bout cutting Ryans…
    LOL.

    • cliff henny

      7m…that’s weekday talk…do love him gameday. upvote for calling out!

      • RIP illa

        Just bustin balls. Yeah that contract is tough to digest during the weekdays. Lol.

        • cliff henny

          i’d extend him, just reduce his number, and draft a backup mid draft, like 4-6th, he can mentor. but hey, what f do i know, howie may give him a raise!

          • RIP illa

            You would know more than Howie if he did that. Yeah I think we need to Draft a backup this year since we didn’t do it last draft, but who do you like. MLB, coming out seem to be not too good!

          • cliff henny

            anyone playing at fsu…heck, i’d take backups from there.

          • RIP illa

            I’m a Acho fan but he probably won’t be here next year. I do like what he and Goode have shown in very limited time. Maybe (optimistically) Those two could be the guys who are ready to assume the mantle of the next solid MLBs. Get rid o Matthews…just had to throw that in there.

  • nicksaenz1

    Little less loft, Foles. Catching some breaks.

    • #7

      Yep

  • #7

    Preach with the INT!!

  • RIP illa

    Djax could have took that inside for more yards

  • cliff henny

    henery, meet blind squirrell

    • Andy124

      He’s 100% on his last 2. Automatic should be his nickname.

      • Andy124

        Automatic Alex.

  • RIP illa

    Good play by square. I think he’s been in a lot more than Logan since the 1st qt. Logan was getting kinda manhandled.

    • RIP illa

      And then Logan comes in and makes a great stout play in the middle.

  • UKEagle99

    We need another 5 tds by Foles or the National (butt head moron) media will not know what to write or where to rank (silent w)

    • cliff henny

      that’s easy, beat 3rd stringer, no pressure, doesnt count as victory…though chiefs beating 3 backups a 3rd and a 4th all count double

      • UKEagle99

        Clearly Andy took his National media spin doctors with him.

    • RIP illa

      Not hard to rank/rate this one this far. Pretty weak performance by St. Nick.

      • #7

        He’s been bailed out a lot

      • Andy124

        Not great, but still with a rating of 137.8 and more importantly, no turnovers. “pretty weak” is going overboard.

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

          It’s not over board. And there are no turnovers b/c GB didn’t make the play…he’s gotten quite a bit lucky this game.

          • Andy124

            Which is why I say “not great” even though he has a great rating. He’s been “ok”.

          • RIP illa

            Hen how bout I change it up to a pretty damn weak 1st 1/2 and a so-so 2nd 1/2 w/ Coop making a great play for a TD on one throw, Avant bailing him out on another, and him hitting a wide open Coop w/ a good/perfect throw. Did I leave anything out??? His wounded duck to DJax…won’t even count it. That’s not the kinda of performance that I want to see from him. He has not looked sharp at all. Which has been all on him!!! Can’t blame the line, or lack of run game or WRs. And that makes it worse.

        • cliff henny

          he seems like a capable guy, in a qb friendly offense with good weapons. i just dont know about this guy if you hand him the ball and say ‘go win us a game’. but he seems above game manager

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

            That’s an adequate description.

          • Andy124

            No need to make up our minds on what he is just yet

          • cliff henny

            well that’s no fun!

          • #7

            Very very good description henny

          • RIP illa

            That’s exactly what I needed him to show me going forward!!! That and out routes throws on a consistent basis. If he’s just a game manager, then screw him…that equals stop gap in my book. I/WE need a QB that can be that and put the team on his back when needed!!!

          • Pennguino

            as the argument has gone, it is an extremely small sample size that he is continuing to add to his resume. He has done what you asked in the first TB game as a rookie. One drive is all you get. Drive the field and score a TD and win us the game. He did exactly that. Almost did it again in the second WAS game last year but the TE dropped it in the end zone

          • cliff henny

            say what you want about mcnabb…but there was plenty PAAA-LENTY of games he was it, eagles only offense. just not sure foles will ever get there…also, not holding out that kelly doesnt need a guy like that. points/wins, young, smart…trust me, i’m looking under every nook and cranny to find a bright spot. nothing changes eagles fortunes more than him being answer

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

            Foles is Okay. That’s been my stance and is still my stance. He’s okay. But I’m not convinced i want to hitch the team to “okay” unless we’re rocking pro-bowlers on that rest of the team.

        • RIP illa

          Cause WR’s are saving his ass like Avant just did. I know your his fan, but I am being totally unbiased. He has been pretty damn weak! Don’t know how you could argue that while actually watching his play!!!

          • Andy124

            Which is why I say “not great” even though he has a great rating. He’s been “ok”.

          • Andy124

            Still pretty weak?

          • RIP illa

            Stupid question and your better than that. Cool was open by 10-15 yards. I would hope that he hits that throw.

          • Andy124

            And he did.

        • #7

          Andy, you would trust giving Foles the ball in a big game? I don’t see it. At all

          • Andy124

            More than anybody else on this roster.

            He’s not a finished product. But the guy is within 10 points of a perfect quarterback rating and people are acting like he should be benched.

          • RIP illa

            No one even said anything close or acted like that!!! That’s you and your fandom going “overboard”. Kid has had a so-so game w/ plenty of mistakes and plays left on the field. And it is very good that we don’t have Rodgers ready to go on the otherside, or then you might have people calling for his benching. Foles needs to take this O, this team by the balls, and make it his b**** and prove week in and out that we don’t need to draft a Qb in the 1st this draft. This game, so far, he has not done that. So while your QB rating is great for this one game. What actually is going on on the field is not solidifying his future, as the future of the franchise.

          • Andy124

            So we agree that he’s at least been “ok”?

            Because to me, that is mutually exclusive with “pretty weak”.

          • Andy124

            I also set a different standard for a guy making his 10th start. I just wanted to him to avoid disaster so he can continue to play and, hopefully improve. He’s exceeded that.

      • Pennguino

        Not weak by any stretch. Not his best game either. He was off the first half. He is still completing 57% of his passes which is 6% less than his normal. 2 TD’s and no INT’s. That is not a bad game so far.

        Hopefully he can be a little better in the second half with the completion average and move the ball a little more.

        • #7

          There is it. 57% is good now. Terrible if Vick does the same

          • Pennguino

            Actually I stayed away from the Vick name. That argument is dead. 57% is bad for Foles.

          • Andy124

            Good thing he’s over 64% now. :)

  • RIP illa

    Try looking back Boykin!!!

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

      Look back at it?

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

    Damn 3rd stringer.

    • Mike Calabrese

      I fyou just click on your name and read your comments for today all have been in some way either derogetory about QB play and explaining that were playing a terrible red zone defense and they have a 3rd stringer in. Then you wonder why everyone says you are more a Vick fan than an Eagles fan. You show clearly your hoping for bad play from Foles rather than care about the win.

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

        The red zone defense comment was a joke. ‘Cause Green Bay is ranked last in red zone defense. Clearly it was good play – and I said as such later. I haven’t said too much bad about Foles – I have commented on the crap GB defense – and I have wondered about why the 3rd stringer is managing to look competent.

        But since you clicked on my name you’d see where I said I’m reserving judgment on Foles ’till the end of the season and Vick isn’t likely to play again this year. But yeah..that makes me a Vick fan. Please go find someone else to harass with ur clearly made up agenda.

        • Mike Calabrese

          Your just not being objective if you read back your comments and disagree with what I said. Call them jokes but they all add up to a sour outlook on the team when your boy is not in. It’s not hard to see and go ahead and pretend I am “harassing” you. LOL

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

            Yeah like I said…you did some selective reading.

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

        “You show clearly your hoping for bad play from Foles rather than care about the win.”

        So you missed my whole convo where I said I care about wins and am not worried about the draft? And where I expected us to win this game. And telling folk not to worry – and have faith ’cause it was still early?

        You missed ALL of that huh? But you read my comments for the day? OKAY.

  • Token

    You can only hope to contain Riley Cooper.

  • Johnny Domino
  • Stuart Philp

    Foles and Cooper almost have a Cutler and Marshall thing going on. Really play well off each other.

  • nicksaenz1

    The first decently thrown TD. Good stuff Foles.

  • cliff henny

    seriously, what is the deal with foles to cooper. i will have kittens if that’s replaced by foles to mike evans

  • UKEagle99

    At some point people have to admit that Coop is viable, just not with Vick apparantly.

  • Johnny Domino

    “Three and out or three and in”

    • Stuart Philp

      Aikman providing great color as usual

    Best celebration EVER!!!

  • Mike Calabrese

    They need to learn to use clock. Why do we go such long stretches without ever running Mccoy on those inside screens?

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

    And they are right back in the game. Though I still think they lose.

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

      Or not.

  • Mike Calabrese

    That was just busted blocking the blitz was timed well and just a sack period. Hopping somehow we win this challenge but not looking good.

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

      Well we can agree on that.

  • Eagles4Life

    SECURE THE DAMN BALL

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

      Breathe…

      • Eagles4Life

        He was doing so well, but that was so boneheaded, man.

  • Johnny Domino

    Shake it off

  • Pennguino

    BULLSH!T. Goes along with all those face mask calls they made

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

    How the hell did he get that off?

  • Stuart Philp

    Defence comes up big again!

  • Token

    I know we are about to get screwed, but clearly the ball is on the ground. The hand is on the side of the ball as hes rolling. Easy call. But we know how this is gonna go.

    • Pennguino

      BOHICA!

  • UKEagle99

    Chip needs to learn to put his foot on the opponents throat and SQUEEZE!!

    • cliff henny

      14 pnt lead into today’s nfl isnt enough till you have ball under 4 mins and other team has no timeouts, till then, run it up!

      • UKEagle99

        I have vague memories of P Manning scoring 28 for the win in the last 7 or 8 minutes when he was a Colt… SQUEEZE!

        • cliff henny

          mine’s Montana, more like nightmare

  • Pennguino

    Need a long drive and kill this clock

    Where is Ertz, BTW?

    • cliff henny

      or celek. no TE play today really

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

    Going for the strip instead of the tackle. Oh well. lol

  • nicksaenz1

    Other people trying to execute cuts made by shady would tear their acl

  • cliff henny

    getting spoiled…that sure didnt feel like a 400 yd game

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

      That game wasn’t as good as the numbers suggest. But it’s a win and that’s all that matters.

  • Pennguino

    Nice to drop that shoulder and pick up the first down. Should wrap up the game.

  • Johnny Domino

    Pack cut Wallace, sign Flynn?

  • Andy124

    Now we just have to hope for the best for the players we lost today.

    • Pennguino

      yep. Need everyone healthy. I did like Goode at LB though. He needs some more playing time

  • Pennguino

    66.7% 3 TD 1 FUM 40 yards with 2 key first downs. Looked worse than that but it’s another test passed. Fought back from being off in the first and turned in a meh to good performance. They lead the whole game.

    • Andy124

      6-6 in the second half iirc.

      • Pennguino

        Yea I missed my typing. Was trying to say – turned a meh game into a good perfromance
