Eagles Defense Stops Run, Then Forces Turnovers

The tough battle against the Giants wasn’t a surprise to this young Eagles football team.  They had seen their defense pummel other opposing quarterbacks, so the Eagles defense knew they needed to step up their game against the New York offense.

With the offense struggling to get something going against the tough Giants defense in the first quarter, the Eagles defense was holding their own against the Giants offense.

They were especially aggressive against the New York running game.  Big defensive tackle Antonio Dixon was clogging things up inside and all the Birds linebackers, Stewart Bradley, Ernie Sims and Moise Fokou were attacking the blocking schemes and making plays on the other side of the line of scrimmage.

Head coach Andy Reid knows how important Dixon is in the middle of that defense.  The head coach knows that the run defense starts up front and it starts in the middle, so Reid made it a point to single Dixon out after the game.

“He’s a big, strong, physical player”, Reid said. “It’s important to have somebody in the middle like that.”

Rookie defensive end Brandon Graham did a good job of playing aggressively and he pulled the football out of Ahmad Bradshaw’s hands to cause a fumble and set up a score.

“We go over it in practice all the time, working on turnover drills, and that was my first time ever trying to go for it. I’m 1-for-1″, the rookie said last night.”

Veteran Pro Bowl cornerback Asante Samuel knew that stopping that tough Giants running game was the first objective.

“If you stop their running in the beginning, you make them one-dimensional and that’s the most important thing. We pretty much did that for the most part. I think they had 202 total yards so it was a good job by the defensive linemen.”

After the Birds did the job shutting down the run, Samuel was showed why he’s such a great ball hawk.   The cornerback, who had picked off two Peyton Manning passes a couple of weeks ago, did the same to Peyton’s little brother, Eli.

“It was awesome for me. I know they’re competitors”, Samuel said. “I’ve got a lot of respect for those guys. They’re Pro-Bowlers, Hall of Famers, one of them and one making his way, so it’s a lot of respect. We’re going to compete; we’re going to play them again so it’s another chance to compete.”

The former Patriot cornerback was involved in two of the most interesting plays of the game.  He was called for a helmet to helmet hit but thought it was the wrong call.

He also picked off a pass at the end of the fourth quarter which would have wrapped up the game, but he was hit and fumbled it back to the Giants.

“That was the worst feeling ever”, Samuel said. “That was the first time I ever did that. And I can’t do that anymore.  When the defense gets the ball, we’ve got to keep it. That could have been deadly for the game.’

Sean McDermott and the veterans on the defense had this group fired up to match the Giants defense because he knew they couldn’t count on the same offensive explosion which put all those points on the board against the Redskins.

“Vick can’t go out there and put 60 points up every game, 300 yards and six touchdowns”, Samuel told reporters last night. “That’s just not going to happen so it’s a team thing. The defense stepped up tonight and we’ve got to continue to do that.”

Alright, stop me if I’m going out on a limb here…..but did Asante Samuel stake his claim as the front runner for defensive player of the year?

Asante had a really good game yesterday and to get defensive player of the year he’s going to need at least 11 picks total on the season and throw in some legal tackles. It will be interesting to see how much he’ll get fined for the hit he had last night. It was dangerous but it was also nice to see him lay down the hammer on that guy.

Jake DOGG your right my man….. DIXON IS A MONSTER in the FRONT LINE……… BUNKLEY WHO? Patterson played well up front too….. as well…….. WHat about my man ERNIE SIMS…….. He gives this LB core a Identity……… Asante your a beast with the Turnovers….. What a great pick up for the birds…. We as fans bashed him earlier this season on his tackling but damn….. Sheldon Brown WHO? I think we have our selves the re-birth of Bobby Taylor and Troy Vincent at corners now……… Patterson and Asante……. Manningham wasn’t a factor this game…… We shut the run down….. Good game by Fokou he’s made a big turn around since last year…….. (Developing into a gret LB…… Special Teams did great last night…. Owen Schmitt what a key free agent pick up…… Some guys bashed me about him as well but proof is proof…….. To many penalities…… But with a young team we’ll get it together!!!!

Hats off to Sean McDermott and DT Dixon. Number 1 draft picks “No Push” Patterson, Bunkley now have no excuse for not playing better. (the old excuse that they were taught to stay put does not fly.)

Hats off to Banner. Ever since the insanity statement, heads have rolled and bums have been replaced. Love it. Glad to see clay harbor get some time. Celek can’t block a lick. If he no longer is going to catch the ball then replace him also.

Eagles fan til I die, win or lose, I am so proud of our team. Asante Samuel definitely staked his claim as defensive player of the year. I mean, he has 2 INT’s off both Manning brothers! Samuel was ballin last night!!! What pissed me off what Jason Avant’s TD drop! OMG! But he made up for it in the 4th Quarter with a few clutch catches. Mike Vick definitely proved that he can lead a 12-15 play drive down the field, for a lot of people were doubting that he could. Yeah he missed a few throws, but what QB doesn’t? We just beat the #1 Defense in the NFL, well there not gonna be #1 anymore! LOL. But Im hype right now! Everyone played great. Game ball: Shady McCoy and Asante Samuel

FLY EAGLES FLY!!!!!!

In some ways this win was more impressive than the skins blow out. Defense looked very strong against a good run offense; team showed patience, as jroc points out, could have panicked and didn’t. Vick posted more human numbers and still lead team to win. Dropped balls didn’t help. Avant? Did you notice in the postgame press conference Vick brought up on his own that he was unhappy about red zone production? leadership.

Defensively,
Game balls go to Dixon,,Fokou,Samuel all played exceptional all game long
Also strong perfomances by Graham,Tapp,Bradley,both Pattersons and Sims
I am a little concerned that T Cole did very little versus Shawn Andrews (who hasn’t seen much action the last 2 years) and Q Mickell who missed tackles,assignments,made penalties and overall had a pretty bad game after playing pretty consisten all season..

Hats off to you guys….. We the people of GCobb Blog……. Another thing i wanted to point out is that….. THe Giants D had a good scheme…….. But they tried to beat Michael Vick…… But forgot that you you have to beat the Eagles offense as a unit…… Thats scary for the BIRDZ to be soo deadly of offense……. One on one against maclin and Jackson is just great to see that…… Celek let me down….. His blocking abilities is just horrible….. He needs to get it together or we’ll see alot of Harbor and Mills at TE……. The #1 ranked offense and they were shut down less than 250 yrds total thats saying something……

Your right Paul…… Trent Cole didnt do well but he created some holding and false start penalities….. Its just pisses me off that the opposing teams who are bleeding in deep waters get stupid penalities against us to stay in the game…… It just pisses me off….. It’s like were playing two teams…. The refs and the actual team……… We beat the Colts soundly and The Giants Soundly…… Hands down……

Good divisional win!! Hate the G-men, loved putting a stop to their run game. I love the sideline cuts showing Coughlin with that stupid, “what is happening” look on his face. That guy whines more then Dizzy at meeting of the Kevin Kolb fan club ( just playing with you Diz, only good thoughts on a Monday morning after a win!).

Did anyone else think that the Giants offensive line was blatently holding our rushers all night? I might be biased, but every replay I saw one of our guys getting held, wrapped up or tackled. I thought the refs did not have a good game.

The birds could have easily had a letdown after the “skins blowout. I was really glad to see that they were able to come from behind and pull it out. It wasn’t pretty, but even the best teams win some ugly games, the point is, we found a way to win the game, and that is what good teams do!!

Gaints Offense was a shell of itself without 2 starting O/L (LT D Diehl, C S O’Hara), their starting FB (Hedgecock),their best possession WR (Steve Smith), without their #4 WR (R Barsden) they had to move back up TE (Pascoe) to the FB Position who was too slow to lead block.. An impressive performance by the Eagles Defense, but this is not # 1 Giants Offense they will see next time around..(Similar to the banged up Colts team a couple weeks back) but I liked how the Eagles took advantaged of their mis-matches

greenfan, you are correct — we were being held, blatantly held, the ENTIRE game. One was right in front of the ref and we got no flag! (Andrews on Cole — one of the many) — but in the end, it didn’t matter. The NFL loves its Manning brothers but too bad so sad, no W’s for either this weekend!

Last year means boo to this season, we caught the Giants t a good time and we beat them, great..
Same thing with the Colts, and I say that’s great again.. But let’s not think we are Super Bowl bound because we beat a couple of good teams that currently have lots of injuries, Eagles were home,favored and expected to win these 2 games which again,is taking care of business, this is why you have 53 man rosters.
Now next week versus the Bears becomes the biggest game of the Season..

In my opinion, play calling was an issue.

For the first 15 scripted plays, we passed the ball 63% of the time.

Afterward, until the McCoy run, we passed 83% of the time.

McCoy ran the ball only 5 times prior to his 50-yard TD.

1. Off-tackle for 4 yards on 2nd and 14.
2. Up the middle for 1 yard (Winston Justice missed a block).
3. Cross-buck for 5 yards (fake pitch to Jackson, ball to McCoy in the 2 hole);
4. Off-tackle no gain
5. Draw play up the middle for 1 yard

As a consequence, the Giants pinned back their ears and went after Vick hard. After the first 15, there was only one screen, no reverses, and no plays designed to slow down the pass rush.

As in the last game, Reid continued to roll Vick to his left. The Giants, however, counteracted with an overload on that side (their right). They forced Vick to scramble to his right, but his receivers were running patterns on the left side of the field.

That’s why coordinators prefer to drop straight back into the pocket. When you roll your quarterback to one side of the field, you can only play on that side. Otherwise, you’ll be throwing across your body – a certain no-no in the NFL.

Reid never made an adjustment to counteract Coughlin’s move. After the scripted 15 plays, there were no reverses, only one screen and 3 runs. When Reid finally did call a screen to McCoy, he picked up 17 yards.

The play calling was an issue late in the game…. Like the 3rd and one we pass the ball and were in shotgun……. Then 4th and 1 we dial up a great pitch out to Mccoy for a TD….. When the Giants blitzed we should have ran more screen plays to counter act that as well……

November 22, 2010 10:38 am

Easy guys,
I said this was a good win, though it was ugly at times, It’s great to be able to win when you don’t play your best (Vick was simply good, nothing fantastic and but did miss some open receivers through-out the game and got away with a couple that should have been Int’s)
LG T Herremans 2 Penalties were costly in stalling drives when the Eagles were going in for TD’s and then had to setlle for FG’s instead early in the game that could have put the game away.
I thought Vick took too many hits and was disappointed that we didn’t rush the ball more earlier in the game when the Offense had the Giants on their heels. Vick won’t last the Seasaon taking 10-12 shots like he did last evening, sometimes you can’t help it when he scrambles, but I am talking about designed plays where he is going to take shots, they should limit those..

Asante has stepped up his game big time. Reid obviously motivated him when he put him on the hot dog stand, with no mustard! During the off-season, Reid publicly said that Asante needed to improve his tackling. That was quite an event when you consider that Reid never publicly calls out his players.

Honestly i have never been more happy with a win, and ill explain why. I know it wasnt pretty and avant dropped that pass ( he dropped it because he catches with his hands a lot, and the ball just got to his body) but i am so HAPPY because, the old eagles would have let a game like this go. They would have found a way to loose this game………………………………………. How many of you were thinking what i was thinking “here we go again there gonna let it slip away”. I know you were cause i was. And they damn well pulled it out!!!! Cutler better watch out next week because if our defense keeps playing this way, watch out!

Drummer you are correct….. Sometimes you need to call players out….. No matter if its positive or negative…….. Asante knows he needs to step up and be an all around corner……. Revis with nagging injuries and Asomunga (what ever how you spell his name) Asante has been consistant with turnovers through out his career….. We have veterans….. Not alot but a guy like him who has won a ring…. You cant go wrong with him…….

@ PAUL give vick credit…….. He was not great but a hell of alot better on extending drives and taking time off the clock when needed… He had a great game I think and yes he did take some hits that should’nt have been taken…….. Alot of Qb’s have missed receivers this season…… mcnabb has missed some throughout his career here in Philly as well and we cursed him for that……. We played against a great defense…… COM ON PAUL…….. The eagles won as a team here…..

Samuel is playing at a Pro-Bowl level and maybe his most consistent season of his career to date..
He’s much more physical,making tackles and just owning that side of the field for the most part.
The LB Corps played their best game of the Season and have really been coming on the last 3-4 weeks and it makes the entire Defense better when they are active,swarming to the ball, making tackles.With the improved play and deep rotation of the D/Line with Dixon, Graham,Tapp & Laws, the rest of the guys should be healthy,hungry and not beat down like they usaully are for the stretch run..
I would like to see the Safety Combo Allen/Coleman play together, I think MIckell is beat up and looked old out there last night.maybe just a bad night for him, but keep on eye on how he performs the next couple of weeks.

Vick with a drive to win from behind….A comeback win..

Peyton “I need refs” Manning threw the game away on a comeback drive within field goal range for the tie and the annnouncers didn’t say a word against his bonehead throws.

Favre throws up ducks and the announcers claims..he went down as a gunslinger. If Vick would have done those same plays his mentality at the quarterback position would have been questioned. No guys like Vince Young had enough.

Vick is taking his respect and I think they’ll give the MVP to a receiver like Roddie White this year before they had it to Vick…Imagine if Kolb was playing like this…He would be the new NFL darling leading the MVP vote.
