  • Kevin.Rosenberger

    One more week. I’m foaming at the mouth.

  • Will, Always Shady in CA

    Lets go Josey!

  • RIP illa

    Watkins had a real good series. The future’s bright for him. Hope he doesn’t take too long to get developed

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      Reynolds or my main man Wolff in?

      • RIP illa

        Love Reynolds over Margos. If we had another competent CB, rather than Marsh or Roc, I would have wanted us to keep only 4 safeties.

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    Wrong shade of green, Matt.

  • RIP illa

    God Barkley is so horrible. Such a waste of a pick. That 4th could of got us a
    WR that year, which could have went towards our 3rd this year being used on a ILB or OLB or OL, instead of Huff. And I’m saying this as a Huff fan.

    • NickS, Combine Warrior

      I generally agree with you, but still think it was important for Chip to have as many options as possible.

    • anon

      Did you see when MB tried for a keeper ran two steps then threw it into the ground?

      • RIP illa

        No I missed that play. I see what you’re doing, but there’s no way you can make me hate him more than I already do! :-)

  • Will, Always Shady in CA

    I really wish the NFL season pass covered pre season games

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    Nice patient runs, Tucker….. Jesus, Barkley, give Momah a chance at the ball.

  • cliff h-MOAR white goons

    so, am i missing anything?

    • NickS, Combine Warrior

      Barkley finally did something right and threw a wide open TD to Benn. He actually underthrew him a little.

      • cliff h-MOAR white goons

        whew, couldnt care less about MB, glad it was to Benn and not Maehl. he needs to go

        • NickS, Combine Warrior

          MB also threw a pick. Haven’t noticed Maehl, yet. MB also under threw Momah and almost had a 2nd pick.

          • cliff h-MOAR white goons

            waste of a 4th. but hey, 3rd qb, could be worse. ‘allas just cut their 4th rd pick last yr.

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            They might as well cut their entire ‘efense.

          • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

            Might cut ours this year.

          • RIP illa

            God willing

  • cliff h-MOAR white goons

    SC v Tam is too fun. zero defense, ‘allas needs to get it’s dbs from these 2 schools

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    So Parkey’s kickoff hit the goal line. Don’t know who opened the game kicking off but he better step it up.

  • Johnny Domino

    Upvote for the LFF Leap, no stars for the backslap from the guy in the Nnamdi jersey.

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    Is it wrong that I hope Kenjon Barner fumbles the punt?

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      yes. we only actively root against Henery

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        I want the 7th rd pick back. I’m all aboard the Tucker train as the #3 with the hope that we can IR Polk and PS Josey.

        EDIT: Or vice versa.

    • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

      Nooe

    • RIP illa

      Yes. Lol. I like all our backs with the exception of Polk. Saw Jose Y’s value shine on our runs outside on the 1st series. Would love 2 keep 4 or at least P’S Josey till next year.

      • Will, Always Shady in CA

        You think Josey will make it to the PS?

        • NickS, Combine Warrior

          he better. or get the mystery IR.

          • Will, Always Shady in CA

            I hope so, I think he can be a good RB for us.

        • RIP illa

          Yeah I think it’s easier for RBs to not get poached. But it is a crapshoot

  • Charles

    I LOVE Beau Allen. I wouldn’t be surprised if he beats out Logan.

    • RIP illa

      I think he’s already better than Logan. Hated that Logan pick to go along with the Mark Barkley pick. With Logan’s injury this preseason, I would love for Davis to start Allen at the start of the season and let him sink or swim.

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        Think Logan will be replaced by Allen by week 4 at latest. I don’t hate the Logan pick, but I agree we may have found a replacement when we thought we had depth. Logan as depth at NT in no way upsets me.

        • RIP illa

          Agreed. I’m just rebelling against all the Logan love last season. Hated that more than the player.

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            Nah, I liked him. He came in and did more than any of us thought he would. Was generally pretty stout, except in that NO game.

          • cliff h-MOAR white goons

            why i hate Nate, well, 1 of the reasons. main one is he isnt good

          • RIP illa

            Come on Cliff, you gotta give it up to the guy. He’s played well this preseason and has shown way more agressiveness. Surprised the hell outta me…didn’t think he had it in him.

          • cliff h-MOAR white goons

            he’s fine. just because he’s better, which i’ll give, doesnt mean he’s good enough. bothers me that people confuse the 2.

          • RIP illa

            This is true. If he doesn’t play leaps and bounds better than what he has shown, this year, than I can’t defend him anymore. Even when he gets unjust hate. We gave him a mulligan cut of his rookie year, but his time is about up.

      • Charles

        The best teams have coaches that start players based on talent and not salary or how high they were drafted. Prime example was Carroll starting rookie QB Wilson over Matt Flynn (signed for 3yrs/19M).

        • RIP illa

          Well we’ll see. But for some reason Davis is in love with Bennie

          • cliff h-MOAR white goons

            he wore 9 at lsu…NINE

          • RIP illa

            Ha…exactly, but it was 18. Don’t 1/2 his character man!!! :-)

    • Will, Always Shady in CA

      He’s a steal

  • cliff h-MOAR white goons

    texas a &m qb is throwing for 300 yds in 1st half. Manziel hype was all BS. 1st game this guy has played in college and he’s tearing it up

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    Wow, can’t run a play w/o a flag in the first three games, now you can’t find one anywhere when it’s blatant.

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      even the refs dont want to see anymore of a 4th preseason game than they have to

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        Hahaha probably not.

        • cliff h-MOAR white goons

          ok, who’s up for a running clock?

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            Considering this is the equivalent to an intramural game, yeah, I’m all for it.

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        I’ll tell ya, nice to see your boy Wolff isn’t remotely afraid to come full speed head to head with a RB coming straight at him.

        • cliff h-MOAR white goons

          tellin’ ya, i love safety play, Wolff attacks, Nate is a passive scared baby out there. once wolff figures it out, he’ll be solid

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            I agree. Thought he showed some chops last season before the mystery knee injury.

          • cliff h-MOAR white goons

            Rip probably tawny harding’s him in the parking lot, out of spite

          • RIP illa

            Naw man…If I did that then that would instantly grant Margos a spot on the 53…and boy do I hate me some Margos.

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            Baldy said he’s a special teams DEMON. You watch your mouth.

          • RIP illa

            Didn’t Baldy also say that Jamar Cheney was our next great superstar LB??? F*kc Baldy! :-)

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            I hope Cheney comes back and does just that haha

          • cliff h-MOAR white goons

            the hairest bald man alive can cover some kicks. he’s never seeing D field

        • RIP illa

          Wolff is like a bullet when attcking. Great when the target is standing still, but if the target moves…

          • Will, Always Shady in CA

            Still better than nailing one of his own players

          • RIP illa

            CHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNG!

  • Johnny Domino

    Greg Salas has a job still?

    How sad for the Jets.

    • Charles

      Anyone who goes up against Marsh has a chance to make a team.

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    Baldy just said there’s no way we’re not a top 15 D by year end… WHHAAAAAT?!?!

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      ever wonder if baldi and geagle are same guy? i’ve never seen them in a room together

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        Right? If we’re a top 15 D we’re making a nice run this year.

        • cliff h-MOAR white goons

          no doubt.

  • Johnny Domino

    Maehl sighting.

    Damn

  • RIP illa

    Does Mark only key in on one WR a preseason??? Jesus!

  • Will, Always Shady in CA

    Giants 1st O having trouble with the PAts 2nd D

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      gints are really struggling. Eags need to get a 4-1 or 5-1 start, get distance early. Romo isnt healthy, either

      • Will, Always Shady in CA

        Agreed, take advantage while the other 3 teams struggle. Washington can be a real problem if RG3 and 10 becomes RG3 again

      • Travis Papa

        Romo got pounded right in the spine against Miami by Olivier Vernon. Thought it was his career last wk.

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    Wait a minute… Roc Carmichael is only 5’10” and he gets to play outside?!?!

    • RIP illa

      You didn’t know?

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        No. WTF is that?

        EDIT: Thought you had to be at least 5’11” to see the outside. Poor Boykin.

        • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

          I’m telling ya. Fishy.

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            Like a hooker’s box!

          • Johnny Domino

            You’d think they’d try to be particularly sweet smelling.

            Stanky is bad for business.

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            Most fellas relying on their services don’t have the luxury of being picky.

          • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

            That up vote was a “yuck”

        • RIP illa

          Listed at 5’11. Just like Boykin’s maybe just a tad under 5’9. Davis and Chip are staunch on their cutoffs concerning measurables. But I’m not really sure if using Roc as your example helps or hurts your case??? Lol.

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            Neither am I! This is Busch League. And the TV just showed him listed at 5’10”. We’ll have to call that a typo.

      • cliff h-MOAR white goons

        and knowing is half the battle

        • RIP illa

          G I Joooooooe!!!

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        My a$$ better caaalllll someboodddyyyyyyyyy

  • anon

    After the first quarter Josey 4 runs 34 yds, Tucker 4 runs 33 yds (or something like that).

    • cliff h-MOAR white goons

      where token? who needs mccoy

      • RIP illa

        Look in the mirror and say his name 3 times in a negative tone and he shall appear!!!

        • Will, Always Shady in CA

          Like Candyman?

          • RIP illa

            Exactly

    • Will, Always Shady in CA

      I don’t think well be able to hide Josey on the PS

    • NickS, Combine Warrior

      Josey looks legit

      • Kev_H

        I keep thinking of W. Montgomery with Josey. Wilbert was wrecked by injuries his last two years in college, wound up with the Eagles and had a great career. Josey is more of a sure thing since he starred in the SEC. I hope he’s walking around town in Oregon gear.

        • NickS, Combine Warrior

          Hahaha hopefully Chip confuses him for Barner when cuts come around.

    • Charles

      I like Josey’s speed and running style better than Tucker’s. Keep Josey and Tucker and cut Polk/Barner.

      • Will, Always Shady in CA

        You don’t wanna IR/designated to return polk?

  • anon

    Awww that was cute how they gave Vick a play.

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    Barkley must not like Josey.

    • Charles

      Thank god we signed Sanchez. Watching Barkley plays QB is unbearable.

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        I’ve been ready for Kinne since the 2nd quarter started.

  • cliff h-MOAR white goons

    been fun…going back to watch end of the semi-pro guys. last question…everyone that matters is on sidelines, right?

    • NickS, Combine Warrior

      In case you missed it, Parkey just rocked a nice 54 harder with room to spare.

      • Will, Always Shady in CA

        nice

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    Think the only thing we haven’t stated is that this backup OL has looked very very solid. Very happy with the development there.

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    PARKEYYYYYY!!!!!!

    • RIP illa

      That’s it for me…get rid of Henery!!!

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        SOLD! Dude that ball had another 10 yards on it.

    • Amar, CB who bought in

      Crowd going nuts….

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        Has to be the liveliest they’ve been all night.

    • anon

      uh-oh Kicker Controversy?

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        Henery got served. And now it’s on.

        • truehaynes

          Love the south park reference

  • Kevin.Rosenberger

    Welp. 54 yards.

  • Stuart Philp

    bye bye henery

  • anon

    Momah getting no separation.

  • Charles

    You know our kicker’s situation is that bad when all the fans goes crazy when the new guy make one field goal.

    • Stuart Philp

      30-40 yards, yeah sure let me see some more, but i dont think henery has made a 54 yarder since he got here… nope 51 is his longest

      • anon

        Add 3 wins last year

      • Charles

        Looks like we’ll get to see it!! Welcomes to the Eagles Parkey.

      • Kev_H

        It’s the 40-48 yarders that make or break a kicker. But a long one before half is nice.

        • Stuart Philp

          think of the pressure he’s under to try to make the team, he knows this game is make or break for him. he’s looked confident and relaxed all night.

  • Mr. Wu

    ive seen enough…welcome to the eagles #1

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    Marcus Smith II, where you at?

  • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

    Well anyone else want to help Henery carry his stuff out?

    • NickS, Combine Warrior

      Nope. I want that walk to be as long and difficult as possible.

      • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

        Think that leg is strong enough to carry all that?

        • NickS, Combine Warrior

          Nope. Makes it even better.

  • RIP illa

    Cliff, did you miss your boy Wolff’s shining moment?

  • Mr. Wu

    has parkey kicked off tonight?

    • NickS, Combine Warrior

      Yeah, one ended up at the goal line, one 7yds deep

  • RIP illa

    Barkley wasted a chance for a fade route to Momatron!!! Damn you Mark!!!

    • NickS, Combine Warrior

      Mark is ruining this for Momah. If Momah doesn’t even make PS I hold Barkley responsible and demand his release.

      • RIP illa

        RC will probably lobby for him being the number 2 behind Foles

        • Andy Six Score and Four

          Excellent.

  • Guest

    Best performances of the 1st half:
    1) Parkey
    2) Allen
    3) Benn

  • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

    I’m still tokenish on us seeing the roster we want. Sinking feeling Barner and Maehl are on the team. I pray not Henery. But Boykin isn’t outside so…

  • anon

    Najee Goode with the ST tackle!!

  • Pennguino

    You have to play special teams to make the roster is hogwash. It helps but when you figure 40-43 players are always going to dress every week because they are the starter, key back up, sub package specialist or ST ace, there is only 3-6 players that swap in or out every week based on injuries, the opposing team, or earned the priviledge. There are 2-4 players that will never dress all season. No need in them having to be a ST beast. Those are the players you want to see develop and not chance them on the PS.

  • Johnny Domino

    That’s one way to get a touchback.

  • FreightTrain

    Where’s Marcus smith been?? I don’t see him on the stat sheet..

    • Token

      He looks like a bum. The QB juked him in the 2nd Q. Hes got a ton of work to do. Wonder if he may come down with a “injury” tonight and get on the IR so as to not waste a roster spot.

  • Token

    I know I said I wasnt gonna watch, but im a sick individual.

    So negativity time….

    Barkley is only a couple notches better then your local high school QB. Hes just not very good.

    If Smith is ever gonna be a force, man does he have a long long way to go. Hopefully hes coachable.

    Parkey…. eh. I liked that 50 some yarder. But his KOs dont get me all excited. I still want him kicking and Henery to be cut. BUT they better have a deal in place with Denver to get McManus for a 7th in week 5. Im a McManus fanboy for no good reason, I admit it.

    Maragos sucks. I remember people were making a case that he was just stuck behind great safeties in SEA. No, he cant play a NFL position. He better be a monster on ST.

    Its a real shame that Barner will make the team over Tucker or Josey. Both are better options. Barner just isnt very quick. Kind of a lazy runner if that makes sense. Doesnt give you more then a Demaris Johnson as a return man. But he went to Oregon.

    We better never bring Marsh back to camp. Enough is enough.

    • NickS, Combine Warrior

      Agree, Smith looks like he’s just going through the motions, no hustle… Maragos has made a couple plays, but nothing outstanding… Can’t agree enough about Barner. He’s looked decent tonight, I think, but Josey has clearly outplayed him. i want that 7th back. I, too, want the Curtis NightMarsh to be over ASAP.

      • Token

        Do we still send the 7th if hes cut? No way he deserves a roster spot. But im sure he gets one.

        • NickS, Combine Warrior

          He’s gotta be on the roster past week 7 to send the 7th.

          • anon

            yeah that sounds like they were going to put Huff on Pup

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            Probably. Can they?

          • anon

            you can put 1 guy there…

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            That’s right, 6wk PUP. Duh.

          • Token

            And now hes banged up right? Ugh, sickening if he sticks.

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            Yup. But, he will be. #OregonConnection

    • Token

      Parkey hits another long one. Thats tough to do in one game, preseason or not.
      We are gonna learn something about Howie and Chip at cutdown. Can Howie admit the Henery mistake? Can Chip forget about Oregon and look past Barner, Maehl and Matthews?

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        God I hope so. I like Barner more than you, but he’s been outplayed by Josey. I don’t give a F about Barner’s KR capability. Let Carroll do that.

        • https://twitter.com/richcolton RichC, brings duck to cockfigh

          or Huff or Sproles

        • Token

          But Barner isnt a very good back. Dont look at the Oregon numbers. When given the chance in the NFL he doesnt do anything. Now, small sample size. But I dont see it. Hes not that fast. Not quick. And no power to counter balance that.

          I dont want to say Josey will ever be a good NFL back. But he clearly is quicker. Has better balance. Better vision.

          It seems like Chip REALLY wants Barner to stick as a returner. But hes not good there either.

          In the end you hope your #4 RB doesnt even matter. But its the idea that the Oregon bum may take a job over someone whose clearly better that irks me.

          • OverreacSean Jackson, #culture

            “But its the idea that the Oregon bum may take a job over someone whose clearly better that irks me.”

            Exactly. You said it in a way that I have no been able to.

    • johnr

      Where is your local high school? If the QB at your school is good enough to play in the NFL, I would like Penn State to visit and recruit him. I thought Barkley was pretty good. He isn’t going to start here, but made good decisions. Had a good rhythm. It helps the line played well and the running game was clicking.

      Parkey got good hang time on his kicks. I have not seen McManus kick nut Parkey led the CBS in TBs, so I am not sure why you like McManus so much (maybe because he doesn’t play for the Eagles? )

      Not se how I feel about the play of our 4th or 5th safety. Then again. .not sure it matters.

      I do agree that Jose and Tucker have looked better than Barner. Chip might have to cut a couple of Oregon dudes this season.

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    Sadly Demaris Johnson is a better RB than WR.

  • Say No to Marc Mo From Easton

    Sorry I’m late to the party. I’m on tape delay and I just saw Parkey’s kick. First off, I’ve never been as excited for a moment involving a kicker in preseason as I just was before that kick (sad state of affairs, our kicker situation is). The pressure he must have felt during that kick had to be tremendous. I thinking kicking for your livelihood in maybe the only chance you’ll have to make that team has got to rank somewhere near or equal to kicking a game winner and he drilled it. Maybe it’s because Henery is so bad, but he drilled that. .

  • Breathe 21

    IT’S OVER HENERY!!! I NEVER TYPE IN ALL CAPS! LMAO

  • NickS, Combine Warrior

    PARKEYYYYYYYY!!!! Give Henery that GD pink slip! He’s outta here!

    PARKEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            Do we get a comp pick i we cut a guy?

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            Don’t think so.

          • Stuart Philp

            really no contest. take the chance on the kid. im sure if we really need to we can resign henery later in the season, no one will pick him up ;)

          • anon

            lots of vets going to be waiting at home during the season.

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            I was actually going to post this. He’ll be on standby.

    • Token

      Well a rational person would think that. Im not sure Howie can admit the Henery mistake that easily.

      You keep the kid. Worst case scenario is you keep Parkey, he doesnt do well for 4 weeks, you then trade for McManus

  • Charles

    I think we found our new kicker.

  • Will, Always Shady in CA

    Its looking like College Station in Cleveland right now

    Great catch, Momah!!! Don’t let Barkley ruin you!

    • Stuart Philp

      I don’t think Momah will be an Eagle this year, but I do think he’s shown enough for some team to pick him up. Another year of improvement like he just had and he’ll be a quality player.

      • NickS, Combine Warrior

        More than likely. Think he’s a PS candidate at this point, but will possibly get picked up. Barkley won’t even throw to him unless he’s wide open. Let the big man make a play.

        • Stuart Philp

          I’ll be very happy if he hits PS and no one grabs him. His upside is insane.

          • Will, Always Shady in CA

            I think he (Josey) should be on the 53. IR Polk if need be. Cut Barner.

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            Nah, if anyone has shown they should be it’s Josey and Tucker. IR Polk, cut Barner, and keep 5WR.

          • Guest

            Yeah, I was talking about Josey on the 53.

          • Will, Always Shady in CA

            I was talking about Josey, but yeah we should keep Tucker too

          • Andy Six Score and Four

            Barner is PS eligible.

          • NickS, Combine Warrior

            Exactly. Once he learns more of the intracicies of the position. Still a little too raw for 53. Needs to set his opponent up better and get out of breaks more cleanly.

  • Say No to Marc Mo From Easton

    I really don’t see how Josey doesn’t make this team. Dude just flat out plays.

    Parkey made 2 FGs longer then Henerys career long in one game. lol

    • Token

      Brandon McManus misses a 52 yarder tonight……

      • anon

        Shoot he’s on my fantasy, though i’d be happy to pick up Parkey.

  • Mr. Wu

    I can’t believe am watching the 4th quater of the 4th preseason game.

    and enjoying it even

    • jpate

      I been waiting to see a 50 + kick

  • All Things Bad@ss

    Thx for the play by play and theatrics fellas. Being in Cali and not being able to see the bubble boys is frustrating. Will check that ish out on Saturday for myself.
