Will Rodgers’ Absence Really Benefit The Eagles?

Aaron RodgersPackers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers will not play Sunday against the Eagles.

On the surface, the absence of the Pro-Bowl quarterback will give the Eagles a much better chance to go out on the road and win their second straight game.

While a lot of Eagles fans are pleased by the idea that their team now has a much better chance to get to 5-5, I have a much different take on the issue.

I was disappointed to see Rodgers go down and learn that he’d be unable to play against the Eagles.

The Eagles’ defense has played some great football over the last three weeks, but I still can’t say that I trust Billy Davis, his scheme, or the players. If the defense had come through with another strong performance against one of the top quarterbacks in the league and a high-powered offense, I might have really started to buy in to what the team is doing defensively.

Now, they’ll instead face Seneca Wallace, a career backup. The Eagles will still be challenged to stop Eddie Lacy, who is running the ball very well right now, and the Packers still have a lot of talented receivers to contend with from Jordy Nelson, to James Jones, to Jarrett Boykin.

But Wallace just isn’t close to the force that Rodgers is, and he was unable to do much with his opportunity to move the ball Monday night against the Bears. The only way that the Packers were able to generate any offense was through their running game.

If Wallace plays that poorly again on Sunday, the Eagles are going to have a pretty good chance to win. The Packers defense has given up a combined 58 points over the last two weeks to teams quarterbacked by the likes of Josh McCown and Christian Ponder. A win against a backup quarterback and a struggling, battered defense wouldn’t really do much for me. I’d rather have a win that I can really be proud of, a win where I can say that my team went on the road and beat the better team while they were at their best and not licking their wounds.

Facing Rodgers on the road would have been a tremendous test for the Eagles. While in the short term, it might be nice for the Eagles to have a better chance to win another road game, but I see the Rodgers injury as a lost opportunity to learn a lot about many facets of the development and direction of the franchise.

You play who you play and you can’t control who lines up and plays for the other Team wo why whine about it.. This is the Biggest Game of the last 3 Seasons in my opinion and a must-win to get to 5-5 for a legitimate chance for a run at the Playoffs.. the last 2 Seasons, the Eagles have basically eliminated themselves from the Postion Season by 1st Weekend in November, here they have a great chance to steal a Win at Lambeau which is never easy and remember the Packers are missing 4-5 key Starters beside’s Rodgers.. As we wind down to crunch time, lets be happy and grateful that the Eagles still get to play meaningful games at this point of the Season… The negativity around here anymore is reaching beyond the pale..
I haven’t read one Positive Article since Sunday’s Notes about the Game..

Eagles have a history of losing to Back-ups….Skelton ring a bell? I have no problem with that fear as I have the same fear. I also fear Karma as Cataldi wished Rodgers would get hurt and now he is bragging on it. Hopefully denouncing that idiot will defuse any bad Karma he conjured up. Still I dont fear Seneca Wallace in general…Just the Ghosts Of Joe Webb…..sheesh

haha so what’s funny to me is this….

Rodgers goes down…Now Seneca Wallace can only have a good game if the Eagles take him lightly, because he is not Rodgers? Wonder what many of you would say had a so called “Vick pologist” said the same thing about Foles performance….I digress…I’m not saying it, Foles played great and I hope to see more of the same….But I just couldn’t help myself to point the hypocrisy that floats around on this site, from “tools” like Denny!

The defense better come out ready to go…I am really impressed with Wolf, to me he’s another player who has earned a starting spot on the defense. Our LB’s have improved in coverage tremendously since the first 3-4 games…I’m liking what I’m seeing from this back 7…
But I do agree, would of liked to see this defense against one of the better QB’s in the league…

Carried away huh? They way you and the media are playing this down you would think he didn’t do anything special in his 9th Career start. All the celebrated Qbs taken before him did this and there would be a crowning already. I don’t wanna hear anything about expectations or pedigree because Russell Wilson was pick in the same round and had that fail Mary last year…His passing numbers haven’t been as good as Foles. I like Wilson he’s a good QB and a good person no denying it. I just dont see why we can’t be really optimistic after that. game.

The Eagles run defense has been stout so theres a positive. They played well against a top tier qb in Tony Romo. No comment about that? Had the offense not been so inept and punched the ticket after the Ryans pick they were in that game, because of the defense.

Seneca Wallace poises no threat to this defense.

Lets talk baout the Packers defense that got picked apart at crucial moments by a back-up and is still without there top defender(who might play with a cast on his hand). I saw no push up front from the Pack,Raji had a few moments however noone else showed up. There secondary is slow and can be had underneath. AJ Hawk cant cover anyone and is mediocre.

The negativity on this site as Paul stated is supsect. Its like you dudes have it in for one another and dont realize opinions are like elbows. Name calling and insults make your whole opinion garbage cause you cant articulate your thoughts and make counter points intelligently.Mostly the reason I stopped commenting.

Whining about not playing a top tier qb is pointless. The Skins come to town in a week. After that Stafford ,maybe Cutler and then Romo. In my opinion by then the D will be on all cylinders and we have a shot at this division.

Denny…we’ll learn plenty from this team just by them goin to GB and facing them in the cold. Woulda been nice to see them against a beast like AR…but thats football. You play who you play.

GO Birds.

RealJoke777 LOL….what a fool.

Kids? If it is true, I give credit to any person volunteering time to work with kids, we need more mentors for kids these days. I coach kids also, but also run into too many wannabe tough guys who try channeling their own lack of success into the teams they coach. I won’t say that you are in that category because I don’t know you, but would hope that for the kids involved, you act differently with them.

I love how YOU make a threat to the writer of the article and it is ME who is the problem. Classic denial. I guess when you are as big of a Vick supporter as you are, denial comes with the territory.

No Joke777, I don’t want anyone’s free speech taken away.

I do know that this site is monitored very little, so if you had a comment removed it would be a surprise to me. However, reading most of the nonsense that you spew daily, I can see where the editors of the site made a decision. If the comment was on strictly football, I have a problem with that, but if someone was threatened like you have done before, they have a right to have it removed or ban you from the site. It is Gary’s site, he can decide to ban whomever he wants. That is his freedom.

Glad I was moving from one plane to the next connection and missed all of that bull.

As a point regarding our freedom of speech. We are all free to say or write or think what we wish, and believe. No question. However, a website is not obligated to post what you type. They can determine what they deem appropriate, because they own the website and make those decisions. I support everyone’s right to their own opinion, it is what makes this a great country, but just because someone holds an opinion doesn’t mean that a private board is obligated to post it.

As far as you being a college graduate, I do not doubt that 777. That really doesn’t mean much related to comprehension of topics or concepts. I have a lot of college graduates who work for me that I question everyday if they really understand what they are reading, and you would be no different.

Ok, I want to let this drop, but the idea that someone would hack into someone’s comments and then make it look like that person was calling themselves a name…..lol….sorry RT777….I don’t mean to laugh but that sounds like when I was growing up and I was fighting with my younger brother. I would grab his own fist and punch him in the face with it (I was a lot bigger than him back then), and when he went crying to mom I would say that he punched himself. Too funny…..I called myself a name…..lol

Eh whatever.

McGown picked apart the secondary…Foles should be able to do the same. Matthews is back, but I doubt he’ll be in top form and their other LBs are still out as well, so very little pass rush. It should be a win for the Ealges.

The key in the NFL is to win the games you should win. We should win this game.

They are on the road and still the packers are picked as favorite… that says something.
This is Ts’s set up… If we win its a game we (foles) should win no big deal. If we lose its because he sucks…
Be prepared foles is due an interception or two…god forbid what is said then.

This is a set-up by me?

– I said we would win the Tampa game, when so many were worried that we wouldn’t – we did
– I said we’d win the Dallas game – we didn’t and we know why we didn’t.
– i said we’d win the Raiders game when Paulman and others were so worried we wouldn’t – we did
– I’m clear on why we should win the Packers game. I didn’t say anything about 7 TDs or no interceptions, I said we’d win. That’s it.

The Packers are favorites to win this game at home despite AR’s injury. This is far from a game that the Eagles “should” win. Have you forgotten that the Packers are a super bowl contender and the Eagles are a rebuilding team coming off a 4-12 season?

But just think – if the Eagles do win the game, Foles will have accomplished another thing that Vick has never done….. Beat the Packers….

Vick did beat the packers…in lambeau…

“The Pack had never lost a home playoff game, and they were greeted by 65,358 boisterous fans and delightful snow flurries. The underdog Atlanta Falcons had lost at Lambeau during the regular season and had a 22-year-old quarterback competing in his first playoff game – against a future Hall of Famer known for dominating in chilly conditions.

All Michael Vick(notes) did was march the Falcons right down the field for a defiant, game-opening touchdown, outplay Brett Favre(notes) and leave Nickerson and everyone else in Green Bay feeling sick in a 27-7 victory.”

But I’m guessing you meant as an Eagle….

Wasn’t that the game when Vick went 13 of 25 for 113 yards or something as the Pack barfed up 5 turnovers?

LOL

Foles throws 7 tds and TS talks about the Dallas game. If Foles “won” a playoff game like that, I think we’d be hearing the word “team” a lot from Ole TS.

Its “Vick” when he wins, “Team” when he loses, or when someone else wins…

I understand what you mean about wanting to see AR face this team so we know what we have… but ill take the win anyday.

What we have on D is simple really- a start. No– the 2ndary is not good enough. No D Ryans is not good against the pass most downs (although he did make some great pics)- No we are not getting enough pressure on the qb’s and still need a NT.

This will take time. Andy Reid’s draft picks really are that bad and we changed from a wide 9 to a hybrid 3-4,4-3. We are still thin on talent. We need a starting CB, S (although the rook looks promising), LB, NT away from a possible Dominate team. HOWEVER…. the coaching has been better than I expected.

Denny, I get that beating the Packers with Rodgers would say more about our defense, but the reality is it doesn’t matter what anyone “believes” about our defense. A win is all that matters. Green Bay not having Rodgers absolutely benefits us. Simple as that.

Vick beat the Pack in GB in the p-offs in ATL. However he did lose against them in the p-offs the year they won the title.

Remember,the Walrus decided Shady wasnt important to the game plan.

Andy one and done in the p-offs? Book it.

I remember the Eagles losing to the Vikings in a huge game for playoff implications at home like it was yesterday. Joe Webb outplayed Vick who turned the ball over a million times in that game. Joe Fucking Webb lol. One of the worst Eagles game I have ever seen. You cant take anyone lightly in the NFL. Hell were not even favored to win this game in Vegas.

The Eagles offense/defense better come to play cause Im sure the Packers will not want to lose 2 in a row at home.

Senaca Wallace is a bum who I don’t think is even a NFL caliber QB. But hey I thought the same thing about Webb in that Vikings game.

While I guess I see what you are saying, the Eagles are one game back from the division lead for one thing. The other thing is that I am pretty sure that a road game in GB is going to do wonders for Fole’s confidence no matter who the QB is.

It will be interesting to see Lane continue to improve. He was a good pick and will provide dividends in the future as he continues to grow. I keep saying it takes time to grow and get acclimated to NFL game speed and systems. Next year Johnson should show his greatest growth. This years draft is starting to bud!!

I agree Eagleshaslanded
I am amazed of how many Football Experts that are on here axctualyl think Rookie Players step in and dominate from their 1st Year On, It rarely happens and it really rarely happens at QB, OT,WR, CB or Safety
It’s takes a good 2-3 Seasons for these PLayers and especially at these Positions where you are on a island to learn the game, your schemes, your teams and your opposition..
A Rookie who actually starts and conftibutes is a very good start for a Career and not easily accomplished … Lane Johnson will get bigger,stronger at the core, and learn more techniques and will be a very good OT for a long time for the Eagles..
Some of the guys on here act as if a OL never gives up a Sack, or that a CB never gets burned for a TD or that a WR never Drops a Pass or that a QB throws a Int.. .. Good Grief…

Exactly Paulman. I remember Jon Runyan and Tre Thomas getting beat like a drum in some games, and they were pro bowl calibur players. I agree, he will be a very good if not dominant tackle in 2-3 years. He is still going to have some rough games this year and that’s not uncommon,however, I see the growth. I remember D’Brickeshaw Ferguson struggling as a rookie tackle, the 49ers drafted Iupati and he struggled majorly in his rookie year, they both are major gamers now. Time and hard work..the skill is there for lane, apparently the work ethic too.

I’m talking about a good article breaking down what the defense has been doing well…I think the way they’ve been playing the deserve some shine!

Nothing about how the LB’s are improving…the safety play of rookie Wolff even Allen is looking more comfortable…nothing on how Acho did feeling in for Kendricks a few snaps…How did Logan do in replace of the trade Sopoaga nothing about how the CB, coverage has improved..nothing about the Eagles playing a little less zone…I was down on B Davis, but I’m liking what I’m seeing from the defense…We still have to do a better job of getting pressure on the QB though…
