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

    • I’m not so much concerned with whether or not the Eagles win or lose to Wallace…I’m concerned with how much progress they’re really making as a team.

      This season, wins and losses don’t matter to me. I’ve considered this a rebuilding year from the start, and I’ve always wanted this season to be about building, about growth, about development, and making some kind of legitimate progress towards building a contender in the future. Any wins, or playoff run would be a nice bonus, but not something I’m concerned with.

      Facing Aaron Rodgers on the road would have been a great measuring stick for this team, and I think we could have found out a lot about just how far they’ve really come.

      Facing Seneca Wallace is different for so many reasons. The entire mentality of the team could change this week, it could go from the team making it a necessity to be completely focused on bringing their best efforts to Green Bay and shutting down an elite quarterback to the team taking the backup qb lightly and coming out flat and unprepared.

      Either way, you do learn something about the team come Sunday, but if I had my choice I’d much rather put them against the best in the business and see how they fare.

      • This is Foles’s true test against a consitant legitimate superbowl contending defense. Can he get it done?

      • I will take a win as a building block toward the future culture of the team. I like wins better than measuring sticks.

  • 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…

    • I didn’t mean to suggest that Wallace could only play a good game if the Eagles take him lightly…Green Bay has a good coaching staff and good weapons, with a good week of practice with the first team, why couldn’t he go out and succeed against a suspect defense?

      And I don’t disagree about Foles, very valid points. It was a great game last week, but how many times have we seen players in sports who have big one hit wonder statistical games and then fall off the face of the earth?

      Dallas Braden pitches a perfect game for the Athletics, and two years later is completely out of baseball. Brandon Jennings scores 55 in the NBA in one game as a rookie, and has turned out to be an average point guard. Kevin Curtis has over 200 yards and 3 scores as an Eagle in 2007 against the Lions. Did he turn out to be a number one receiver?

      Hopefully Foles continues to play well, but I’m no more sold on him as an answer than I was a week ago. Certainly his performance was historic and should be celebrated, but no one should get carried away.

      • 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.

        • Xevious, after Foles fell flat on his face against Dallas I criticized him, but I was also among those who said it was too soon to write him off (and I even stated in the postgame article that it was important for him to continue to start) and its for the exact same reason that I defended him then that I say its too soon to get carried away now: both times, it was just one game.

          I think some of the plays he made against Oakland were tremendous. The plays in particular that stick out to me are the first two touchdowns to Riley Cooper and the third down conversion to Jeff Maehl. He was great all day, he really was.

          But at the end of the day…one game only proves so much. The reality is that Foles is still an unknown. He’s shown us some really good things in three of the four games that he’s played. But he’s got a lot to prove as well. All I know is that right now, I absolutely want to see more of him and I he should without question be the starter for the rest of the season. That’s as far as I’m willing to go. After I see what his entire body of work looks like after the season, then I’ll go from there.

          I know that doesn’t sound as optimistic as what a lot of people would like to hear…but honestly its really not as negative as it may come across.

        • Folks are just saying remember Boby Hoying. Had a career GAME, and they anointed him the next comming of Joe Montana LMAO! The Philly media had better be way careful with this one.

  • 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.

    • Griffin, Stafford, Cutler, and Romo are all good quarterbacks…but Rodgers is just on a different level. He’s on the A-tier with Manning, Brees, and Brady.

      Griffin/Stafford/Cutler/Romo are all pretty suspect, and week to week can fluctuate anywhere from great to average to bad. Not to say that good performances against any of them should be written off…but there’s just no comparison between facing them and facing a Manning or a Rodgers.

      And I agree, there’s still plenty to be learned. But the defense vs that A-level quarterback was what I wanted to see most

  • dipshit denny… its the nfl the schedule says we play the packers. you get on a plane and you show up at the stadium and play the team in the other colored jersey.

  • i will take an eagles win any way it comes. id prefer no rodgers if that means this team wins instead of loses. winning builds teams up, builds the mindset, builds the attitude, the culture… lets go nick foles led eagles!

    • Good points, mhenski

      • what do you mean good point? you don’t care if the Eagles win or lose…this is a rebuilding year, remember?

        • Haha, I mean good point as in I see what he’s saying and understand the point he’s trying to make and I even agree to a certain extent.

          I may not completely agree with another person’s views, but that doesn’t mean the points that they make aren’t good ones.I might see things differently than other people, but I’m not so closed-minded that I would never consider/listen any ideas and viewpoints other than my own.

          • yea laugh…your another one I wouldn’t mind meeting in person and discussing things face to face….your not closed minded but the type of person who messes around with someone else’s freedom of speech. right? I know your the coward that edited a post of mine because you didn’t agree with my view…So really listen to yourself…is that not closed minded?

            • Threats of violence? Haven’t you said that you are a coach of kids?

              Nice role model. Can’t make an argument with facts or persuasion, you revert to name calling, threats and profane language. I get it.

              • WOW 777 needs to be committed ASAP real talk, real life. WOW I feel so bad for 777, his life must be so miserable to act like he does on a message board.

              • Greenfan you are an asshole…where at anytime in the above post did I call anyone a name or use profane language…besides that just used towards you…what the hell are you the GCobb board post police? GTFO with that BS…complaining about profane language and violence on a board where football is discussed, the most violent sport played today…shut the hell up! So because I coach kids I shouldn’t get offended, I should let someone walk over me…I see…any kids you deal with, must get bullied…also none of my kids are around, on this board, nor what I say or do has any impact on them on a discussion board….Get serious, clown!

                Mheshe…now you are someone that I’d lay hands on if I saw in person…especially if you had the same shit to say as you do on here! that is real talk!

              • Fuck both of you clowns! the man f’d with my freedom of speech, abused his power on a public board…if you don’t see anything wrong with that something is wrong with you!
                Also all I said was discuss things face to face…never said a word about laying my hands on anyone…

              • i feel bad for you that you dont have enough support around you to do whats best for you and commit you.

              • And also Greenfan…I don’t give a shit what you think…we’ve already established the type of transparent individual you are…one of the biggest hypocrites on this site…Wanna converse with those who support a player because of unfair attacks…but says nothing to those who are being irrational…wonder why?

              • And also Mheshe…we’ve all witnessed you temper tantrums and name calling and ish on a message board…so who the hell are you?Again, cats only seeing shit in their own view…they do no wrong…

              • I can’t seem to face up to the facts

              • 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.

                NOW THAT’S SOME REALTALK…hahahahaha

              • Defending someone who is irrational and wrong..seems to be why you are on this site to begin with Greenbooger…you defend all of those who bash Vick irrationally…and now defending someone who have violated another person’s freedom of speech…yes, my friend you do have a problem…

              • 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.

              • No one was threatened…it was strictly football…again, so you are the law? if you feel its right its ok? again, shut the hell up

              • You obviously have issues 777, I tried to explain how the board works, if you think I made some kind of decision tell the voices in your head that I didn’t do it.

              • how does it go from my freedom of speech being tampered with, to banning from this bullshit site? you obviously don’t see how ignorant you are! you can’t even agree that freedom of speech should be protected without adding some other bullshit just for the sake of argument.

              • also I’m a college grad…I did quite well without you explaining shit to me, don’t need you to start now!

              • for the love of god, and for the love of jesus is lord can someone BAN this psychopath from this site. He brings nothing to this site but vulgar and vile language, threats of violence and cyber bullying. Cmon admins, I know when you censored him before you meant to ban him… right the ship

              • Ha,Mheshe, I understand you’re salty because you don’t possess a 10th of my skill in any department….What do you bring to this site, Mheshe? some may say you’re worse than I am…aren’t you the guy that was running around talking about someone’s mother a few months or so ago? weren’t you the one, being disrespectful calling names to a female poster….and it just don’t stop there…there’s plenty of shit you’ve done…

                I don’t give a shit about this site…you guys can have it!

                I like to discuss football but I hate being attacked…it wasn’t your business or Greenfans business about my comment to Denny, he was wrong in what he did and I called him on it…instead of coming at me, maybe you should be coming at Denny? of course if it was one of your butt buddies, Vinnie or Greenbooger, you’d totally understand where I’m coming from!

              • 777 proper English would be it just doesn’t stop there not just it don’t stop there. getting a GED isnt an accomplishment 777…

                see what makes you a psycho is you attacking Denny for no reason but some made up claim in your head. many of things could have contributed to your post not being here that 1 time with Denny being just one of about a dozen possibilities if not more but your not bright enough to understand simple concepts so I wont even began to list them.

                more times than not I joke around on here, but you sir are a certified lunatic and really should be committed. grade a psychopath

              • The saying is come on not come one harvard grad. haaaaaaaaa what a donkey

            • Realtalk, all seriousness id love to meet you, shake your hand, and talk some sports face to face. I’m sure you’re a great guy, and that we’d get along just fine. As for comment, I don’t delete anything that people post here, that’s not my job, nor is it what I have access to. I manage article content on the site, and garry has other IT people that deal with technical aspects of the site…Im sorry one of your posts got deleted

              • lmfao. total class denny.

                it blows my mind this buffoon blamed you in the first place especially considering he is an IT guru… to think the writer of an article has full moderation and administrative rights over a website shows his intelligence.

                haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

              • in a low class website like this…with constant malware and shit…come one…Denny has that access…Denny removed DizzyJ a few years back…

                Let me explain how security settings work…normally a person that is able to create records, normally can edit and delete those records as well, especially if they were the author of published document….the permissions contain create, edit, delete, view….etc…technical issues are irrelevant from posting comments…managing article content would give you the ability to modify, edit, even delete content…don’t give me that bullshit….
                you obviously have no clue about a damn thing…

              • 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.

              • ha. that was humorous Greenbooger..really, it was…

                But in regards to your freedom of speech comment and you mentioning comprehension skills…you say you question those that work for you, if they understand what they are reading…well I’m questioning you…you obviously don’t understand that the comment was not inappropriate at all…Nothing was removed from my comment, only added, and what was added was an insult toward myself. I’m pissed about that. Let that of been yourself or one of these cats you hold hands with…I bet your perspective would change.

                I’ll leave it alone for now…

              • I’ll let go at that. I have read your comments on this before, and see that you were trying to address Denny directly. I get it. My comment was regarding your methods of threatening him.

            • Mheshe, Dumbass, you don’t even know what your talking about! ….My post was not deleted..it was edited and within my post, I was called a name within my own post…so it appeared as if I called myself the name…it wasn’t deleted…and it occurred when I was defending Vick against irrational attacks….Because that person did not agree with my opinion gave him no right to modify any of my words/comments….

              • @real talk

                Seriously, you have to stop

                I am very concerned for your sanity

                I have taken the liberty of discussing with your family your mental affect

                You are being committed to intensive in patient counseling at the jakedog institute for anger management

                if you have any questions, please call incognito of the dolphins, on of the institute ‘s finest also we helped out Riley. Cooper as well

              • Ok, then RealTalk777……then is this really you writing this or is their a puppet master putting these words under your name making us all believe that you are deranged?

                Is that really you RT…..type in upper case if that is really you then we will know.

              • But Greenbooger, Jakedog, and Mheshe…you cats are such class acts! The closed mindedness in which you guys see things is refreshing and has enlightened me! You guys must show me the art of meditation to deal with reading and listening to bullshit on the daily basis.

              • Realtalk – i’m sorry, I changed your comment – I work for Anonymous-NSA at the same time. LOL hahahahaha — GCobbdotcom changed your comment to make you look foolish? too funny — we are all dingbats and make ourselves look foolish all on our own –

              • “.My post was not deleted..it was edited and within my post, I was called a name within my own post”

                thats awesome!!!!!!!!

              • 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.

    • Yup! We should take this easy and be back in the hunt!

    • 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.

        • Bait and switch

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

    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….

      • for his only playoff win in 12 forgettable seasons where the potential was always greater than the outcome!

        • lol.

          Way to change the goal posts.

          • LOL

        • He had two actually…One against the rams in 04. He didnt have good games in either win, but he can say he has 2 on his resume.

      • Then Atlanta came to Philly, and Vick got stuffed on the goaline trying to jump over our line backers. Great Season.

      • Right you are TS, Vick did beat the Pack in Lambeau. That was one hell of an accomplishment for Vick back then too!

        Sorry, I did mean as an Eagle, but I should have say that….

        • 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…

      • 6-7 Years ago is an eternity in Football
        Can you get off of Vicks balls for a week
        Your embarrassing yourself.. It’s over for him,
        Can’t you understand this or come to terms about this..

  • again, on the road, the other team is favored in vegas this is not a ‘should win’ game– its a game they can win

  • 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.

  • Denny I don’t care if 75 year old Bart Starr was the Packers I’ll take the win.

  • Denny,good point. Those guys are lower teir. It woulda been a great test to see where the D is and my guess is they give up 28. He has the best arm in the league as far as im concerned.

    As jaws would say…HE CAN SPIN THE SPHEROID!!

  • Bart Starr woulda shredded last years secondary.

  • News Flash. Chip says that Lane Johnson’s play last week was a huge part of the o-lines sucess. Its why Foles had all day in the pocket. Oakland was his best game YTD.

    • 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.

    • Lane Johnson stinks

  • has it always said “JESUS IS LORD!!!” under GCOBB.COM at the top left on this site?

    • have you always been the dumbest kid in class?

      • trashman777 didnt take his lithium today, uh oh. look out philadelphia

        • He live in NY

          • you don’t know me…I live closer to Philly than New York…try south jersey

            • lord jesus please tell me not gloucester county

              • Gloucester County, the Armpit of South Jersey..

    • Nope…getting his church on on a sports website.

  • Talk about bringing anything to this site…the writers only post shit that they know will get us all going…when’s the last time we’ve seen an article on the defense…? 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…

  • Wait! What did I miss? Church sermons? Poetry? Lyrics? Delusions? Madness? In house fighting? Irrational fighting? Oh, same old $#!t. Nothing to see here. Move on……. BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    • Same old shit, different day DCar..
      Maybe we will actaully have an article about the Biggest Game of the Season or Coach Kelly’s Biggest Game as a NFL HC about what Strategies,Game Plan, Personnel Packages etc,etc about the upcoming game..
