  • GEAGLE

    We ain’t losing this one…..NOT TODAY!!!

    • Mr. Wu

      you tell em William Wallace!

  • Johnny Domino

    Stuck in traffic, first snow makes everybody an idiot. In danger of not getting home for kickoff, may have to stop at a random house and ask for sanctuary.

  • Token

    This kind of weather adds a lot of luck to a game. Just gotta hope the ball bounces our way today.

    I dont know if Foles will be able to throw in this.

  • Token

    This sucks.

    Dont get me wrong, its fun to see a snow game.

    But in a playoff race its terrible. Just a game of luck now. Whose gonna slip at the wrong time etc….

  • Stuart Philp

    This game is concerning. We have to get to pounding the ball in this weather, but the lions d is very good against. Good news (and bad, depends which way it goes) is one slip can open up a huge hole to run through.

  • Token

    All your game planning all week goes out the window now.

    What coach can adjust quickly and effectively is the question.

  • jesse

    these conditions work against our style not liking it

  • Token

    I dont like this at all.

  • Token

    Get two TEs out there all day. Maybe Chris Polk getting a chance. Need downhill running today. I love shady, but its not a cutback every run kind of day.

    • nicksaenz1

      There’s Polk

  • jesse

    these conditions are not condusive to our speed and uptempo nor shady’s cut on a dime running idk ..

  • Token

    Sucks if the run comes to a end cuz of the weather. Obviously hurts us much more then them at the moment.

  • jesse

    yeah makes you think do you really want the super bowl played in these conditions? would really suck to let the weather to sway the outcome of the superbowl

    • Johnny Domino

      Dude, it’s football.

      • cliff henny

        it’d be a great super bowl to watch, if eagles went in it.

  • jesse

    wow this team really knows how to get that turnover at just the right time

  • Token

    They should delay this type of game. Nobody wants to watch this. After you get past the cool factor of the snow, its just bad football being playing it bad conditions. Especially since the game is so important to both teams.

  • G_WallyHunter

    so much for a shootout
    Oh ya, I got Foles Shady Desean in today for playoffs, this looks to be my last week
    Weather ruins my fantasy team, how about that

  • #7

    Hoping that Foles can throw a ball that can cut through the snow/wind

  • Token

    Thats probably game. Just dont see us doing anything today.

    Just a shame the run ends because of snow.

  • Johnny Domino

    Nice to get the pick thing out of the way, hate to go to the playoffs with that monkey on his back.

  • RIP illa

    Now worries for our D. That was a short field w/ great play calling. Lets hope we start making those type of calls and plays. Field conditions are shite as everybody sees, but visibility seems to still be there and intermediate throws can still be made. Like others have said…time for some TE lovin, like we never seen before and keep feeding shady w/ draws and whatnot but def need to get him and the screen game going.

    • Token

      We arent winning unless it stops snowing.

      • RIP illa

        Curious…why is that?

        • Token

          I take it you arent watching

          • RIP illa

            Wow…always so intelligent and enlightening!!!

  • Token

    Chip basically just gave up now. Man this stinks.

  • nicksaenz1

    Time for the fellas up front to open up some running lanes, just like that

  • Johnny Domino

    Polk hasn’t played enough to know to hand the ball to the ref.

  • Token

    Foles arm hurt now. Ugh…..

  • Token

    Ok….. If we can just manage a score here before half.

    The snow may be done by the 3rd Q. Do they plow the field at halftime? That would be the best case scenario.

    • nicksaenz1

      Need to bring the zambonis over from wells

    • RIP illa

      What are you talking about??? According to you and your negative arse….we already lost as soon as DET scored!

      • #7

        He flip flops. Cmon man you know that

        • RIP illa

          Yeah I know. Same thing every week. One mess up by us or score by the other team and the world is over for the team!!!

      • Token

        Are you seeing the game? Dont know how a person could be happy or confident. They look terrible.

        • RIP illa

          Who said anything about being happy or confident??? The only thing I’m confident in is the fact that you are an extremely negative person towards the team you supposedly love!!! You’re not even a realist…just completely pessimistic!!! You do it week in and week out, no matter if there’s snow or not!!!

          I see both teams playing in the same conditions and know that more mistakes are bound to come. Maybe they’re in our favor or maybe not. But I do not see this game as being out of reach or DET dominating us, as the score is only 8-0.

          • Token

            DET is dominating us. We had some lucky breaks to hold them to 8-0. Again, not seeing what you are seeing. The snow has to stop for us to win IMO.

          • #7

            Dude is a clown and pu###

    • Johnny Domino

      Sounds like you and Lynch share a brain.

  • RIP illa

    DJax playing nasty…love it!!!

  • Johnny Domino

    Fake field goal

  • #7

    Foles looks like he’s shot putting out there

    • nicksaenz1

      Vick looks cold on the bench.

      • #7

        Well they need to bring him in. At least we could get a spiral

        • nicksaenz1

          He’d get hurt getting off the bench.

          • #7

            Foles is hurt on a dead play….

          • nicksaenz1

            Still playing.

          • Token

            Vick cant protect the ball when its Sunny and 80 degrees. Just stop. Funny how your true colors come out so quickly. As if anyone believed your Eagles fan routine anyway.

            Just do us a favor and stop posting. We dont care about Vick anymore. Hes done. Hes gone. Get over it. Go back to the Falcons board.

          • #7

            You brought him up not I. Said Foles balls look like they are being shot put ad you start your weekly crying.

        • cliff henny

          cooper would let it slip thru his hands anyways. foles had 1 bad throw, just happened to be a safety there. stafford did same thing in 1st quarter, landed harmelessly.

          • #7

            I wasn’t bashing Foles. All I see is that Stafford is still throwing at least a COUPLE of spirals. Our QB hasn’t done that and hoping that he does. Your boy Token is on his period, like he is every Sunday

          • cliff henny

            he made couple nice throws to cooper, who’s trying to catch like 5 yr old, hands apart.

          • #7

            yes he did

        • theycallmerob

          and an injury

          • #7

            here comes robfoles

          • theycallmerob

            yup, and here comes a W. like what Foles does.

          • #7

            That’s what we all want rob…

      • Johnny Domino

        Don’t worry, Mike is in to run the single wing in the second half.

        • #7

          Good.

    • Token

      Just go away. Nobody cares to here from you.

      • #7

        Go f yourself

      • #7

        and try taking up some spelling lessons

  • Token

    The NFL should never let a game be played in this much snow. Its just stupid.

    Terrible product. Terrible that a season can come to a end due to 6 inches of snow on the field.

    How old is the Linc now? Think its time to be smart and go with a dome next time we are due for a stadium.

    BTW….. Superbowl in NY looks dumber than ever right about now.

    • #7

      You are the biggest crybaby/complainer on here. All you do is bitch and moan. You always trying to tell me to “go away”. Why don’t you take your crying ass somewhere else. You said that the game was over in the 1st quarter, but as soon as someone says that FOles can’t throw a spiral, you attack.

      You’re a crybaby and I would tell you that to your face

      • Token

        Nobody cares to here about you and Vick. Sorry I hurt your feelings tho.

        • #7

          I’ve never mentioned Vick lol. Just said that Foles looks like he’s shot putting instead of spinning it and your little self starts crying

  • cliff henny

    these games are fun to watch, when your team isnt involved. takes all the skill out of the game.

    • Token

      Yep. Becomes a game of luck. Terrible.

      • cliff henny

        sucks, crappy weather could end up costing team chance at playoffs. if i was det, would be getting CJ 1v1′s on outside and just throwing pop-ups.

        • Token

          Hopefully it slows down and they can get the field plowed at half.

          Field is heated but not turned on. Guess they rather have snow than mud.

  • Token

    They arent plowing the field. That seems odd.

    • cliff henny

      why dont they have like 150 guys with push shovels, every dead ball run across field. there is no reason snow should accumulate on the field.

      • Token

        You wouldnt think so. Playing in 4-6 inches on the field. Just dumb to now clear it at half atleast. O well. Hope Bears win on Monday.

        • theycallmerob

          hope bears win? giving up so soon? weak effort, even by your standards. it’s a 1 score game

          • Token

            Hey maybe they pull it out. Maybe you see what im not seeing. I see a offense thats completely shut down and clueless right now. I dont think they can get it done today unless the D can. DET has dominated us.

          • theycallmerob

            and yet, one score changes everything…..good lord, you’re bipolar

    • RIP illa

      The snow is wet and heavy, so unless you’re scraping up the field along w/ it, you basically gonna make giant patches of condensed, packed in snow that’s more akin to ice than the former. That or they’re just lazy could be the reason!

  • nicksaenz1

    There’s our explanation.

  • rod

    how bout we go read-option w/ vick for the 2nd half?

    • RIP illa

      Lol…preapare the downvotes.

    • Johnny Domino

      You’d have #7 rooting for AccuWeather the rest of the year.

      • #7

        Just want to win sir. You figure that at 6’6 with big hands that Foles would be able to control the ball. And that’s not a knock on Foles either. This is a fact

  • RIP illa

    Like how DET is using the flat. Our LBs can’t respond quick enough in this snow and w/ the routes being ran in front of them by WRs. Hope Davis recognizes this and switches up the coverage. I saw DET shutdown our routes out to the flat w/ DBs a couple of times!!! Unfortunately, our DBs play way to far off to do that now.

  • #7

    ………..

    • Johnny Domino

      Mike’d got him

  • Token

    As I said, hopefully the Bears can pull out a victory. Eagles had zero chance in this one as soon as this weather came in.

    Its just a game you have to forget even happened. If Bears win it doesnt matter. Really got screwed with this weather.

    • RIP illa

      So as soon as you saw the weather you knew that an outdoor team had no chance of winning against a dome team, when both teams are playing in the same sh!tty conditions??? Well that sounds like we had no chance of winning period!! Despite what the weather is!!!

      • Token

        Do you have a clue of the offense we run and the players we have? How on earth does this weather favor us in any way?

        • Stuart Philp

          How does it favor the Lions?

          • #7

            None at all, but Token knows all…..

          • RIP illa

            Thank u

        • RIP illa

          Yes I do, remember I’m not the one making unintelligent statements. How does this weather favor any team??? What’s megaton doing today??? Where’s Bush??? Do you finally get it smart guy???

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

        This game favors us. Home bad weather conditions…some folk will make any excuse…

        • RIP illa

          All true, but in Token’s defense…he’s always just a negative jackass that make un-enlightened statements that he can’t back up when he’s called out about them!!! He has to wait till after the fact, meaning if the outcome is such as he said, he thinks he’s vindicated. If not, then he says nothing and doesn’t learn.

  • RIP illa

    Where’s Anderson and Matthews??? Jk

  • Stuart Philp

    There’s those baseball skills

  • Johnny Domino

    Yikes

  • nicksaenz1

    Those throws got through with spiral. On the board. Let’s go fellas.

  • RIP illa

    That’s what I’m talkin about!!!

  • Token

    2 great throws. Guess they just gotta try to keep passing. May end up turning it over. O well, they dont have a choice now. Running is just not working against this DL.

  • Stuart Philp

    His back foot was on the grass, no way this is overturned

    • Token

      Were they saying he stepped out of bounds and came back in?

      • Johnny Domino

        Who are “they” anyway?

    • Johnny Domino

      Not if Ed wants to get out of town.

      • RIP illa

        In Ed v any town…my money’s on Ed!!!

      • Stuart Philp

        His arms must be suffocating in those sleeves

  • #7

    There you go Foles.

  • Token

    I know Henery sucks…… But he couldnt make a extra point? Being 14-6, going for two wasnt moronic.

    • #7

      go away

  • #7

    Relying on our best player #25

  • Johnny Domino

    Bruce Arians is sending a tape of that first PAT to the league office.

  • #7

    Son of a….

  • #7

    LOL this dude thought he had a TD. Cmon Fletcher lol

  • RIP illa

    Horse collar and late hit!!! Come on!!!

  • #7

    Give the ball to McCoy baby!!!

  • RIP illa

    Like I said (

  • Stuart Philp

    BIIIIIG 2 points there

  • RIP illa

    Mistakes and Big plays…they don’t have to be have to be mutually exclusive, but that’s what this game is and gonna boil down to.

  • RIP illa

    D getting it’s swagger back!!! Keep it up!

  • RIP illa

    Yes!!! Didn’t like the 3 man rush but glad we got away w/ it. Would have like to have brought more heat w/ the weather conditions and distance.

  • Stuart Philp

    shady got his snow tires on

  • Johnny Domino

    Preach it, Eddie!

  • RIP illa

    Dammit Suh!!!

  • Stuart Philp

    there’s the QB sneak!

  • nicksaenz1

    Foles Gold. Get’em.

  • Johnny Domino

    That Casey pushing Foles in?

  • RIP illa

    That’s what I’ve been missing from our line this season…complete man v man domination!!! F’n great play by them!!!

  • Token

    Well my god have they made me look like a moron in this half. Snow stopped and they just started doing what they do. Lets go D.

    • RIP illa

      Wasn’t too hard for them or anyone to make you look like that…you kinda make it easy!!!

      • Token

        fair enough.

    • Token

      i may have just jinxed us, going silent mode

      • Token

        IT WORKED!

  • Token

    ST coach, wtf are you thinking?

  • nicksaenz1

    Love Meco but man does he struggle in coverage.

  • RIP illa

    Come on Mecco, need better coverage.

  • nicksaenz1

    There’s that Lions patented blunder!

    • RIP illa

      Big plays (Shady), Mistakes…there you go!!!

      • nicksaenz1

        Exactly. Even got a couple in the passing game on a real tough day for throwing the ball.

  • Stuart Philp

    one good drive, come on

    • RIP illa

      Would love for us to run 3-4 mins off the clock while putting the game away.

  • RIP illa

    Damn Shady…you had the 1st!!!

  • nicksaenz1

    Kelce is the warmest dude on the field. That beard is impressive. Fear the beard.

    • #7

      the beard is nice

  • Stuart Philp

    I’d like to take more time off than that, but can’t argue with a TD!

  • Token

    wow wow wow. Im just shocked. Totally different team this half. Unbelievable.

    • Johnny Domino

      Nice Oprah impression.

      • #7

        lol

    • theycallmerob

      please, bears, please…..ye of no faith.

  • nicksaenz1

    Even Polk’s gettin some!!! Fear the beard!

  • RIP illa

    Ooooh!!! Casey just destroyed that DB so Polk could get that TD!!! Love it man!!!

    • nicksaenz1

      That’s what $4mil gets you

      • RIP illa

        Well spent w/ that block. Lol!

  • #7

    So much for the statement that the weather does not affect the Lions…

  • RIP illa

    The amount of drops for DET…smh. Not complaining but smh.

    • #7

      they’re an undiciplined team. From the HC on down

  • #7

    Our offensive line is playing lights out football

  • RIP illa

    There you go Mecc

  • Johnny Domino

    Does that drop make you a Joique-off?

  • Stuart Philp

    20 or less again, only 8 from the D. Nice job fellas!

  • RIP illa

    I was wondering about Foles in bad weather, and then worried after the 1st 1/2. 2nd 1/2 he answered the bell. Props to Shady, Chip, def the O-line, DJax, and Coop for bouncing back!!!

  • nicksaenz1

    Guys. We’re 8-5. I don’t even care what we do the rest of the season. Don’t get me wrong, I want to go to the postseason, but no one thought this would be the case. These were what we thought were our two toughest games left and we walked away from them 2-0 and showed a ton of character in doing so. This is fantastically unbelievable. Good times to be an Eagles fan. In Chip I Trust!

    • #7

      Sorry to call you out, but you’re wrong there. Knew we had a good chance to make the playoffs

      • #7

        Not a did at all man. We have talent and we could have won with Foles and Vick. Chip has this team rolling and our defense doesn’t give up TDs. This is the formula to win

      • nicksaenz1

        You’re not calling me out. You thought Vick was taking us to the promised land and you were wrong.

        • #7

          Sure, I wanted Vick to do well. You didn’t?

          • nicksaenz1

            I did, when he was playing. I knew he wasn’t playing a full season, like every other rational person. Knew we would flash on O regardless of QB but the D is playing ball none of us thought was going to happen.

          • #7

            It was almost all dependent on the D, just like every team in the NFL. We have talent on O and have said as much. I think I was the only one on here that was saying that we had a good chance to get in the tournament

          • nicksaenz1

            Pat, pat, pat. Feel better now?

    • RIP illa

      Up Vote!!! Def still care, don’t wanna be doing so good only to have it crushed by Romo not sucking in Dec.

  • #7

    Great adjustments coming out in the 2nd half and getting the ball to our best player #25. Offensive line the best in the NFL? Sure looks like it. D-line is playing great and we don’t give up too many big plays. Great game Eagles
