    Man, all these touching ‘player makes a connection with sick kid’ pieces are sweet, but I’m going to get numb to them if we keep seeing them every time we turn on the tv.

    • cliff henny

      see the ohio state kid who named his cancer ‘michigan’, that one got me a little

      • Andy124

        Missed that one. Damn.

      • Johnny Domino

        Off topic but nice tee seen yesterday: Make Michigan our Bichigan.

  • Mark Johns

  • nicksaenz1

    Wish I could be on to comment today but I’ll be packing for a work trip. Go Birds!

    • cliff henny

      weak excuse…just do it like you did in college, wait till last minute and shove anything and everything into duffle bag

      • nicksaenz1

        After that start I am!

  • RIP illa

    Could be way off but I think Shady gets his and then some today!!! I’m looking for this offense to actually exceed expectations when facing a worth while opponent/team. Been a long time since we played “legit” competition and I’m so ready for the change of not coming out flat and giving 1/2 hearted efforts for teams we gotta step our game up against.

    If not then I’m looking for Coop to have a big day while AZ concentrates on DJax.

  • Token

    Gotta have a good game from Kelce and Herremans. Foles will see a lot of pressure today I think.

    Gotta get to Palmer.

    • cliff henny

      get the lead, shut run down, beat on palmer

  • RIP illa

    Nice recovery by the D on that screen.

  • Andy124

    Kendriks’ inner monologue: That’s 2. 8 more and I can stop playing.

  • RIP illa

    Cole w/ the strip sack. Nice blitz dialed up by Davis him leaving Cole one on one.

  • cliff henny

    COOOOOOOOOLE!!!!!!!!!

    • Andy124

      smoothie power!

      • cliff henny

        CONVERT 7

  • RIP illa

    Huge 3rd down pick up. Celek coming alive the last couple of games

  • RIP illa

    Great play…Chip’s on one today!!!

  • cliff henny

    yeah baby!

  • Token

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO couldnt ask for a better start!

    • cliff henny

      wait, 2nd down sucked, lol

  • GEAGLE

    What I tell y’all about the defense you would see today?

    Told you, DEFENSE and TEs will shred this team
    ..
    How u like that college offense pig face?

  • RIP illa

    All TEs…go ahead and focus on Shady and DJax, while we kill em w/ Celek and Ertz!!! Been waiting for this all year.

    • nicksaenz1

      Really have. That was a thing of beauty.

    • Richard Colton

      love the multiple TE sets

    • Jason

      I’ll give you credit for that one, you have been clamoring for that all year. Great matchup for the Eagles to exploit.

  • Johnny Domino

    Henery feeling it.

  • nicksaenz1

    17/0

    • Andy124

      Pack at halftime.

      • nicksaenz1

        Multi-tasking. Half time shower.

  • cliff henny

    i just want tp punch that grumpy arians in the face…too bad no snow, be raining down on his ass

  • RIP illa

    BS personal foul!!!

    • cliff henny

      cant suplex

      • RIP illa

        I know but it was a “gentle” suplex

        • cliff henny

          f him, if going to do it…dawkins do it!

    • Andy124

      Have a problem with the rule, not the call.

      • RIP illa

        Yeah I mostly have a problem w/ the rule!!!

  • Johnny Domino

    What, no suplex allowed?

  • nicksaenz1

    NATE ALLEN WHAAAAAAAAAAT?????

  • Token

    PALMER LIVES TO TURN THE BALL OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • GEAGLE

    How you like YOUR eagles defense!!! Palmer the fraud!!! 3 games in a row with an ENDZONE turnover

    • cliff henny

      i’m going crazy!!!! even nate’s come to play

      • GEAGLE

        Even a “Rosey optimist” like me couldn’t have guessed that…but I’ll TAKE IT!!!

    • UKEagle99

      You know what? I’m LOVING it!

  • Mr. Wu

    this…. is the twilight zone

  • RIP illa

    Hellzzzz Yeah!!! Where u at w/ your gifs Will??? ALLEN!!!!

    • Richard Colton

      you know he’ll have the Fletcher tackle in slow-mo

      • RIP illa

        I like the enthusiasm, but man can that kid destroy a thread w/ the amount he posts.

  • Andy124

    T-Law predicted that

  • Token

    Eagles D just gives up those 5 yard out routes. Frustrating.

  • GEAGLE

    FOOT STEPS!!!!!!

  • RIP illa

    Sigh of relief!!! That was a huge drop for us. Need the O to put them away early now. No more empt possessions.

    • cliff henny

      hyper speed, package play series coming up.

  • cliff henny

    gift drop…not proud…i’ll take it

  • RIP illa

    Those are the hands I wanna see from Ertz…nice rook!

  • nicksaenz1

    Great throw and catch. How many 20+yd plays is that now?

  • Token

    I know you wanna run, but passing is working and running isnt. We gotta get up on these guys and then you can run

    • Richard Colton

      ohh Andy…well you came and you passed without running…then we sent you away…ohhh Andy

    • nicksaenz1

      Chip’s just playing head games with Arians and Bowles right now.

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

    They are going to have to keep feeding the tightends. That’s the one major weakness of this Cardinals D. If Ertz and Celek have a big day it should be a big day for the Ealges.

  • RIP illa

    Who are we afraid of taking us deep??? We are playing way too far off!

    • Richard Colton

      Floyd and Fitz are the best WR tandem we’ve played all year. frustrating though

      • RIP illa

        Yeah but none of them are burners. Fits does damage all over the field but rarely deep, and Floyd can go deep but will out jump/muscle a DB instead of outrunning them.

  • nicksaenz1

    Curry is a stud

  • Johnny Domino

    Foles should have kept that

    • RIP illa

      I hate when autocorrect does that!

  • Token

    We are playing right into the Cards strength defensivly.

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

    Defense gonna have to keep getting turnovers and giving the offense short fields.

    • RIP illa

      Seems that way as of now. And that’s what their doing so I’m more than happy for it. We gotta put more drives together on O for when they don’t. I hate relying on TOs to win a game.

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

        Agree…however, I’ll take a win however we can get it. lol

  • nicksaenz1

    Think that gets overturned.

    • cliff henny

      all i seen is bad camera angles

      • nicksaenz1

        Basing it solely on the timing of the ball coming out.

        • cliff henny

          oh, i agree, but still have to see it

          • nicksaenz1

            Absolutely. Hopefully the camera angles were too crappy for the officials, too.

          • cliff henny

            nope, were hiding one

    • Token

      clearly down. Dunno how they didnt get it the first time.

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

    Special teams.

  • Token

    Pass on these fools. Running it and these plays in the box is just going right into their strength.

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

      They are pretty good against the pass too. They aren’t the best at covering TEs however.

      • Token

        But like 2nd in the league against the run. They are outstanding in the box. We wont win by attacking that area.

  • RIP illa

    I’m happy Chung broke that up and didn’t get flagged but he had his head around w/ enough time to adjust and make a play on the ball for the pick. Don’t know why he turned back into the WR.

  • RIP illa

    Uh oh…Chip challenge!!!

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

      That doesn’t make me feel warm and fuzzy. lol

    • cliff henny

      knee was down before he reaches ball out, it’s short by football length

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

    Well I can hope that Cardinals offense keeps going 3 and out or almost 3 and out and their defense gets warn out and start making mistakes. lol

  • Johnny Domino

    Now that’s something new.

  • cliff henny

    did chippah just break his challenge cherry?

  • nicksaenz1

    What the hell happened to their offensive line being terrible??

    • Richard Colton

      there you go

      • nicksaenz1

        Much better.

        • Richard Colton

          we should probably stop gloating now

          • nicksaenz1

            Yup. Great play by Fitz. That catch was all concentration.

  • RIP illa

    Great initial penetration by Kendricks followed by the stuff by Graham.

  • RIP illa

    Perfect D on that all the way around. Coverage was great and the line was superb. No outlet for Palmer but the ground!

  • cliff henny

    bend but we break you defense

  • nicksaenz1

    F’n Fitz.

  • RIP illa

    Did Boykin just pull a Coleman??? SMH

    EDIT: My bad…it was Chung!!!

    • Token

      Chung didnt tackle, and effectively took Boykin out of the play

      • Richard Colton

        Naamdi’s pointing at Chung from his living room

    • cliff henny

      chung has to make that tackle

  • Token

    Thats disgusting

  • Token

    Chung is one of the worst players in the NFL, all we needed was a sure tackle.

    • Richard Colton

      Patrick “questionable” Chung

    • cliff henny

      he really is a liablity in coverage, just need to keep him around los

    • RIP illa

      Always hated the signing. Byrd/Allen/Wolff/4th-6th round draft pick for the safeties next year!!!

      • Token

        Id like to think Wolff makes that tackle.

  • RIP illa

    We gotta get our O going! This game should have been in our favor regardless of that TD by AZ.

  • Token

    The O better get going in a hurry.

  • UKEagle99

    This is resembling one of the earlier season games. D will keep us in it for so long but the O needs to start generating something.

    • cliff henny

      they’ll get it going

  • RIP illa

    Love the catch but come on Avant…stay up and we could’ve had 10 more yards at least!!!

  • Token

    Is Riley Cooper a beast?

    • RIP illa

      Think he may have grown into one finally.

    • cliff henny

      yes???

  • Token

    THATS WHY U DONT DO THAT CRAP!!! STOP IT!!!

  • RIP illa

    God!!! From wanting him cut at the start of the season to wanting him to be a priority signing for next season!!! Go Coop!

  • Token

    There goes momentum

  • Richard Colton

    Flacco hates that play.

  • Johnny Domino

    Holy Coop!

    Followed quickly by Holy Crap!

  • Token

    Chip just murdered that great drive. Awful playcalling

    • Token

      Backs against the wall and you take it out of Foles hands for a ridiculous wildcat play with a nobody like Smith. Im pissed.

      • #7

        Dude hasn’t played in a while. Bad spot to put him in

        • Token

          just a bad call regardless. Take that crap out of the playbook. Its stupid and has never worked.

          • #7

            Yep you’re right, especially in the RZ

        • UKEagle99

          They will have practiced it without a doubt.

    • Richard Colton

      thinking the same thing. way to disrupt the pace of your timing offense. makes me wistful for halfback option at the one.

      • cliff henny

        too many toys, overthinking it.

      • RIP illa

        Ha

    • Stuart Philp

      I just can’t understand that call. You’re marching down the field with ease, even McCoy is going, and then you just derail the whole thing by calling a stupid gimmick play.

      • Token

        He had to get a gimmick in there. Arians must be in his glory right now.

        Hope that doesnt come back to haunt us. That was gonna be a touchdown drive. I have no doubt about it.

  • #7

    Cooper keeps proving me right

    • Richard Colton

      that shampoo and conditioner in one can be effective? or that Toby Keith’s best days are behind him?

      • RIP illa

        LMFAO

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

        Now that was funny.

      • #7

        Good one

  • cliff henny

    johnson was only one that didnt get steamrolled

  • RIP illa

    Disappointing. We need more quick hitting plays cause Foles is holding on to the ball forever (coverage or not) and we can’t ask our line to hold up against the cards D line for that long.

    • Token

      This game has a bad feeling to me now. Something has to happen.

  • #7

    Foles seems to be holding on to the ball forever. He better get that thing out

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

      He will or he will keep eating dirt. Cardinals D ain’t effing around.

  • RIP illa

    Palmer w/ Cox in his face!!!!

    • Richard Colton

      mustache not helping

  • Token

    Dont like the 3 man rushes on 3rd down. Stay aggressive Billy.

    • #7

      Bend but don’t break. That’s our D

      • Token

        Im still pissed about that Chung miss on Fitz. UGH!

        • Andy124

          He didn’t miss at all. He hit Boykin solid.

        • #7

          Cmon man Fitz can make that catch. Would love for us to make that tackle of course

  • cliff henny

    think CP has a hitch in his giddy, not that he’s going anywhere. 3rd down, looked like he was hearing things

  • #7

    Great great throw to Jackson

  • RIP illa

    A td here while getting the ball back in the 2nd 1/2 will probably effectively end the game!!! Granted, if we don’t choke in the 2nd 1/2.

  • Token

    Nice job getting something out of nothing there. Cards knew the bubble screen was coming.

  • RIP illa

    What was Foles thinking??? Good job DJax.

    • Andy124

      Hate it when I rewind to rewatch a play, then forget I’m not live and see something here before I see it on the tv.

    • Richard Colton

      don’t mind taking shots. keeps the defenses honest. Djax might be the 3rd best DB on the team.

      • RIP illa

        I don’t mind deep shots either but that was a busted play w/ Djax blanketed and safety help coming. Not a smart decision by any means. Would have rather him throw it out of the back of the endzone or just towards the sideline.

  • #7

    Jackson was completely covered. Not a fan of jump balls to Jackson

    • Richard Colton

      not a fan of picking on Peterson either.

      • #7

        yep

  • Token

    If they trot Henery out there for this someone should punch Chip in the face.

    • #7

      LOL

  • Mike Calabrese

    That’s what Foles does well with Cooper. He finds 1 on 1 coverage with him and gives him and his height advantage opportunity. Huge smart play.

    • Token

      Yea ill take that chance all day. Cooper has shown the ability to get a ball.

  • #7

    Nice play call to Celek. Sneaking him under there

  • Token

    great way to end the half. They should have a nice idea of what to attack coming out of the half.

  • nicksaenz1

    TEs kill the Cards!!!

  • cliff henny

    lots of laundry…thank you refs

  • nicksaenz1

    College offense

  • Mike Calabrese

    Sorry but anyone against Foles vs Vick or just as the starter has to see that this is a legit defense and Foles has 3 or 4 incompletions and 2TD passes.

    • Richard Colton

      18-0 TDs/INTs – pretty amazing

      • Richard Colton

        yeah – downvote 18 TDs-0 INTS. the usual suspects. I’m having fun watching this kid emerge. why can’t you? ohh right.

        • RIP illa

          Lol…yeah saw that and was like Whaaat??? Some people man…some people.

          • Richard Colton

            there’s an Arizona fan in the live chat. really hoping its him

          • RIP illa

            Really??? I could never live chat w/ another teams can base during a game…smh…that’s kinda asking for it!

        • Token

          Its fun to watch. Hope it continues.

        • Mike Calabrese

          Where you talking to me about not just enjoying?

          • Richard Colton

            no. whomever downvoted Nicks 18TDs…now 19

          • Mike Calabrese

            Thought so.

    • RIP illa

      Boo!!! That discussion has been dead for a long time!!! Boo for bringing it up outta nowhere!!! Boo You!!!

    • #7

      No one is talking about that

      • Mike Calabrese

        It’s a general statement. Wow defensive much? It was not at anyone imparticular. I just made simple statement. Wow didn’t mean to upset either of you. i honestly didn’t see either on here. Just got online.

        • #7

          No one is upset

          • Mike Calabrese

            Ok

          • #7

            Let it all be known people. Mike Calabrese is the first one to use the name “Vick” on here. Not me lol

          • Mike Calabrese

            Your only one to react. Which shows your still struggling with it. Do not respond. I am done with your reacting bc I made one small comment.

          • #7

            Hmm I see Rip Illa’s name on here….

            And how am I struggling if the Eagles are winning. My team is winning and I’m pulling for them…not mentioning Vick once. Why don’t you try not responding sir.

        • RIP illa

          Not upset…you just deserved to be boo’d for bringing up inflammatory stuff for no reason. I’m pretty glad everyone, including myself, is past that or should be past that, so we can have actually discussions/arguments about so many other things w/o it always going down that road. It was so tiresome!!! No one’s defensive…just calling you out for trying to instigate something that’s way over w/ and past it’s time.

          • Mike Calabrese

            Instigate? That was definitely not an instigation I really don’t care about conversation. Just complimenting Foles and my growing confidence in him. Done with this conversation. Sorry I offended you.

          • #7

            I don’t think you were trying to do that, but you’re a vet on here and should know.

            Vick is the backup. We know you love Foles man. Let’s just watch the game and pull for the Eagles man

          • #7

            Exactly. Foles has played well and earned the job. Ol’ Mike should know how it can quickly get on here.

  • RIP illa

    Now all we need to do is come out in the 2nd and keep it going while stringing together more sustaining drives.

  • cliff henny

    easily toughest defnse foles has faced. 15/20 175 yds 2tds 0ints qb 134.4

  • Mike Calabrese

    This has really helped my confidence in Foles so far. Also o line and McCoy handling top run defense really well.

    • Token

      Yea id say Kelce looks to be having a damn good game, though I cant say ive watched him all game . Foles has taken some hits. But no true breakdowns up the middle that I can remember.

      • Richard Colton

        Best D-line we’ve played all year. Hell – best defense period. A few problems in pass pro, but Foles has hung in there and made the throws. Some great plays by the receivers too – Jackson, Cooper, McCoy, Ertz, etc…

        • Token

          One thing you like is that Foles is willing to take a big hit to get that screen set up. Might get injured doing it, but it can really help make that play a big gainer.

  • Token

    Seemed like some missed chances early on. But I can live with a 10 point lead.

    Foles 75% for 175 and 2 TDs.

    20 passes / 9 runs.

    You dont like seeing Mendenhall getting 5 yards a carry.

    • RIP illa

      Gotta get Ryans Logan to start suring up the middle of our run D and make sure that they don’t exploit Chung in coverage. Other than that…just keep doing what we’re doing on D and we should be fine.

      • Token

        Havent noticed Kendricks yet. Id like to see him stick his nose in there and stop some of these runs up the gut. His tackles are pile ons or down field.

        • Andy124

          Made first two tackles of the game.

        • RIP illa

          Yeah as Andy said, and he’s been getting penetration on some run plays and is going from sideline to sideline. He’s not making too many impact plays but his presence is helping others make plays that he’s not making himself. That’s why I focused on Ryans…cause he could:should be the guy that’s stepping up and locking down the middle while dealing punishment. He’s been rather quiet in run support.

          • Token

            You see him blitz and its like hes scared to fully commit. Goode had more burst through the line. And I know Kendricks is the better athlete, he just doesnt show it IMO. His mind doesnt process things fast enough.

          • RIP illa

            Agreed that he doesn’t hit home on on his blitzes and seems hesitant when he goes most times, but when he does hit home it’s amazing. I was more talking about run support today tho. But when he does blitz it also frees up others for one on one matchups…like Cole w/ his strip sack.

          • Token

            Hes just maybe the most frustrating player because hes got physical ability. Its just, will he ever come around mentally?

          • RIP illa

            Your preaching to the choir!!! I’m a fan of his but can’t ignore his short comings.

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

    TEs are their achilles heel

    • Andy124

      And Foles.

  • GEAGLE

    Like I said:
    Our defensive puppies have big paws and sharp teeth:
    ..
    Nasty Front 7 and opportunistic defense would own these frauds!

    Powers is a pigeon waiting to be picked on, Cooper and the TEs is how you beat this sweet in the gut king hippo ass defense!!

    You can’t stop the raaaaaiiiin, when it’s starts to fall…HASHTAG RAINMAKER!!!
    ..
    The kid went after Revis, and now he is going after Patterson. NO FEAR! NO RESPECT!!!

    pig face Arians has to pay!!!

    5 bucks and I’ll give you Wednesdays lottery numbers :)

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

      Going after Peterson is not smart. That was a pick if DeSean doesn’t make the play.

      • GEAGLE

        Blah blah..put that fool on his heals!!

      • Token

        And the big play to jackson before that wouldnt have happened if you dont go after Peterson.

        You cant be scared of players as a QB. If you feel a play is there you go for it.

        Hes gonna throw a INT eventually, dont worry.

        • Mike Calabrese

          If it was other QB she would say you have to take shots down the field. No questioning if makes good decisions when were on 18td’s and no int’s yet. Jimmy Johnson just talked about how he just constantly makes good decisions with football. He is a hall of fame coach but sure she will disagree with him also.

  • jakethesnake

    2 big mistakes in the first half by Kelly
    Bryce. Brown and the Wildcat….both dummy moves

    • Brian

      Yeah. Chip’s really proven to be a dummy this year. Or not.

  • RIP illa

    This is the type of drive we needed coming out. Could be a little more “crisper” but we are converting our 3rds. Really need to finish it off in the endzone!!!

  • #7

    Honey Badger..damn I was hoping we would have drafted him. Dude lays the wood

  • Richard Colton

    yo Nick. easy on the bubble screens. Honey Badger dont care.

    • Token

      Cards know when they are coming all day. Might be able to fake that play later and hit big downfield. Safeties/Corners are really biting on it. Im sure Chip is noting that.

          Lol. Didn’t ask for it just seen it coming! In his defense tho…he has had our CBs playing too far off all game and we still don’t get that great of pressure, consistently, on QBs. So it was bound to happen. They’re going continue to march downfield unless we tighten up coverage or get more TOs.

          • Token

            They were at least hitting Palmer all day. Then went more prevent/safe D.

  • Mike Calabrese

    Need run some screens again. Arizona still sending blitz. keep hitting with screen.

        Shady was swing pass not screen. No blockers out front.

          well, short throws, nether was jax. foles just missed couple throws last 2 series

          • Mike Calabrese

            I know but screens you let the rush in and set up blocks in front of guy catching it bc pressure went passed. we need to keep running screens not swing passes.

            This game was different imo. They didn’t turtle up with the play calling. But blocking was bad and Foles went cold. Don’t know if he was dinged up or what.

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

            Yep. This wasn’t coaching. I think the hits got to Foles and the oline couldn’t handle Arizona’s dline anymore.

          • Mike Calabrese

            Of course you do. You could only hope it’s Foles fault. This is the NFL and against that defense just under 250yards passing with 3 td’s to 0 INT’s is a huge statement. If Coleman doesn’t hold on kick return then no discussion. Foles did his job against this top defense with poor o line play in front of him. Peterson on Jackson weeks ago would have shut down the passing offense bc if Jackson was not open then we had minimal passing success. With offense now we utilize other players and have become much more efficient. Hence 19td’s to 0 INT’s and 2 other QB running scores. It’s seriously no joke what this offense and the new QB have done. This week he did it with bad o line play. In NFL a lot of teams don’t have mobile QB’s but can run the ball. Time we started with same mentality bc this pocket QB is not one you just throw away for a running QB.

          • RIP illa

            So AZ’s “comeback” was Foles and the O-line faults?

          • Andy124

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

      2nd half was awful. Palmer doesn’t turn the ball over and this game likely doesn’t go our way. But a win in a win. If we do get to the playoffs I think we are bounced pretty quickly.

      • RIP illa

        If our coaches keep doing this same retarded sh!t like they’ve been doing since week 1 until now…then yeah we’re out quick! This is absolutely ridiculous and we can’t chalk it up to inexperience and the team needing to gel and whatnot!!! Too much time has passed for those excuses!

        • cliff henny

          com’on…how can you complain about a coaching staff that might get this team into the playoffs?!?!!?!? some areas to work on yes, but pump the breaks…Eagles playing meaningfull games in December is an incredible feat

          • RIP illa

            Just cause I’m not slobbing on his knob for our winning record doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate or acknowledge it. I can complain about it cause it’s the same mistakes that he’s making over and over!!! Simple as that. How many times does it take for someone to learn from a mistake or error??? How many times before someone stops being stubborn and not let a game that is clearly in hand, almost slip away??? How can you not complain about that??? What’s the point of going to the playoffs if we’re not trying to actually win it??? And we’re not going to win and go further by letting every team we play “comeback” against us if we have a lead!!! In the playoffs the comp is going to be way better than what we’re facing now!!! So if we gotta a game in hand…we def need to put it away each and every chance instead of giving the opponent chance after chance to put us away!!! And not just in the playoffs but in the reg season too. How can you argue anything else???

          • #7

            It’s the tempo man. We had some really fast three and outs. Threw our “O” out of rhythm, Cards’ D stepped up…and was Foles dinged? Once those hits started coming, he seemed off. Really off

          • Brian

            He was sacked five times and took some hits. I’m sure that played into it, but it’s been the Eagles M.O. since the beginning of the season. We beat them up in the first half, and we start leaning on the run too soon. You could see Chip’s face in the fourth quarter, it looked like he was disappointed in himself. He’ll make the necessary adjustment to his play calling, and we’ll keep winning.

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

          You can blame the coaches, but execution was just putrid as well. I don’t really see coaching in the issue. The real truth is defenses adjust. And we don’t have an answer for their adjustment.

    • cliff henny

      i hear ya, but this wasnt a reid type bad coaching game. should have been easier, but still a work in progress here.

          not disagreeing with you, heck, i was typing bs about it 45 ins ago. this wasnt as bad of a let up as the other 2, more play execution, little fustrated with still running unblocked d-end read option with foles, mean that just doesnt work.

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

      Its a win against a good team. Was never going to be easy. Not that there arent issues. Ill get to that in another post.

    This is the NFL you don’t go bell to bell with perfect execution. However Chip needs clock management help period. Otherwise he called good game.

      was that 2nd down read/option, that went for minus 5, at best, that killed Eagles. if foles is the guy, the unblocked end on a read run has to be 86’d

    Huge Kudos to Billy D and his boys. Larry and Co have killed us in the past. When all is said and done this was a legitimate defence and our O scored. The D held their own, again.
