The Seahawks Were Clearly Better Than The Eagles

Seattle Seahawks v Philadelphia EaglesYesterday, Russell Wilson put on a clinic by using his legs, arm and instincts to lead the Seahawks to a convincing 24-14 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.  He threw for a total of 263 yards with two touchdowns.  Number three also ran for 48 and a touchdown on a 26 yard naked bootleg.

Wilson made big plays against a couple of Eagles all-out blitzes.  On one play, he took off on the naked bootleg vs. the blitz and on another he threw a touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin, who beat safety Malcolm Jenkins.  Jenkins was unable to take advantage of a huge opportunity in the fourth quarter, when Wilson made a huge mistake by throwing a pass which his Jenkins in the chest.  If he had caught it, it would have been a pick six and would have closed the deficit to three.

This wasn’t a quality performance by the Eagles offense, but the Seahawks defense had a lot to do with it.  “We were out played.  We missed blocks we could have made.  There were plenty of opportunities”, said Eagles center Jason Kelce.

The Seattle defense bottled up McCoy for the entire day as he was held to only 51 yards on 17 carries.  On the first play of the second half, McCoy was carrying the ball loosely and he was hit from behind by Seattle linebacker K.J. Wright.  McCoy fumbled the football and Seahawks safety Earl Thomas recovered.  Seattle scored a couple of plays later on a Wilson pass to Lynch.

The Seahawks defense front was in attack mode for the entire game.  They outplayed the Eagles offensive line, which left the game in the hands of the Sanchez. The longest run they surrendered to the Eagles was ten yards to McCoy.

A couple of plays later, Wilson connected with Lynch for a touchdown and it put the Birds in the hole by a 17-7 score.

The Eagles got a turnover from the Seahawks, when they separated the ball from Marshawn Lynch, but Mark Sanchez handed it right back to them with a poor throw to Riley Cooper. Cooper could have done a better job of coming back to the football and fighting for it, but it was a poor throw by Sanchez.

Those two turnovers did the Eagles in as the Seahawks dominated the game except for a few plays.

In the first half, Seattle’s punter, Jon Ryan dropped a snap to give Zach Ertz a chance to recovered to set up the short 14 yard drive by the Birds which ended with a two-yard quick screen pass to Jeremy Maclin for a touchdown.  It put the Birds ahead early in the game.

There’s no other way to say it.  The Birds were outplayed. Sanchez looked hesitant and unsure at times.  The Seahawks defensive front took it to the Birds offensive line which had dominated the Dallas Cowboys.

The Eagles defense did decent job on Lynch, as they held him to 86 yards on 23 carries.

The Eagles defensive front did play some of its best football.  Fletcher Cox showed up in a major way and continues to prove that he’s one of the best young defensive linemen in the NFL.  He can’t be blocked one-on-one.

Mychal Kendricks is blossoming as a young linebacker.  His speed is starting to show more and more as he’s becoming more adept at anticipating what play is going to be run.

Connor Barwin did a great job of patrolling the left side of the Birds defense.  He got a couple of big hits on Wilson.

Eagles are a QB and WR away on Offense
and a Top CB, another ILB & Safety away on Defense

Maclin, Thornton, Bradley Fletcher , and Nate Allen are the 4 starters available in Free Agents.
Both corners and Nate Allen could use an upgrade as starters —
age replacement and/or health casualties Ryans, Herrmanns, and Cole.

Well if they need a qb, where is he and if he’s better than what we have how do we get him

If the eagles really need a qb than kelly will be gone before he ever wins a super bowl

These elite or franchise qb are few, and often it’s luck or eordr, disaster when you reach for one like Washington did

The future of the eagles rests on foles showing he’s capable of consistent high level play, the fact that he shows a high ceiling means he’s got the tools, the question is consistency, but he’s the only option, and I guarantee you one of the first calls kelly made today was to the team physician

How the hell do the “KNOWLEDGEABLE” Eagles fans give up on a QB like Foles after the promise he’s shown, he’s young, had the crap beat out of him with no OL or running game this year PLUS there’s no doubt he was severly beat up and injured… Going in ANOTHER direction @ QB puts us 3 to 5 years out… That’s nuts and KELLY WON”T be here for that…

WRs will be plentiful and you can pick up a burner in the draft as well.

ILBs of significance are going to have to come in FA.

Same with safety.

Kelly’s QB isnt on the roster. Doesnt mean he cant win with Foles.

Yes that’s correct, lots of missed,bad calls by the Ref’s in yesterday game…
But Bottom Line, the Eagles did not play well enough to Win on Offense
Chip Kelly called way too “Safe and Conservative” Game Plan which had very little chance of being successful versus the Seahawk Defense
It was like he was afraid to challenge them… Very disappointed in the Play Calling for it played right into the Seahawks Strengths ..

Chip knows were gonna be playing Seattle more than likely again at some point. He kept it simple and we got Seattle the hell outta there with no injuries on both sides. Soo many bad calls and opportunities left out on the field. They did not completely whoop our ass. We were still in it the whole game with mark at QB. I still believe we’re the better team on offense and special teams. Our defense did what it did best, stop a top tier rb again and force turnovers. Expect a totally different outcome next time these two contenders meet. Wilson is not going to be able to win with his legs in the post season consistently. He didn’t do nothing special with his arm. That mccoy fumble and dropped picked 6 were the daggers. Still happy to be 9-4 with Dallas on there way to the linc. Good news is we don’t have to travel anywhere. Regardless of what happens this season I’m really proud of this team showing up and battling there hearts out. Deserteagle is right we have came a longg way. It’s been a fun year! One of the best in recent memory.

I completely agree

I loved the offensive gameplan. Show absolutely nothing.

4 plays changed the game. The costly bogus pass int in the 1st Q that gave the Hawks a td. The McCoy fumble, the horrible INT, and the dropped pick.

Once the starting QB returns and passes over 10 yards re-enter the gameplan, you’ll see a very different result.

Heres a revelation why didnt the best Left tackle in football, the best center in football, the RT phenom, and the all pro RG open up some holes vs a good defense rather then feasting on the Titans and Cowboys of the world who everybody runs on. Ask that oline why they couldnt run block again. Seems like they always get a free pass.

Because Chip Kelly called too many Wide Running Plays instead of more Off-Tackle & Straight-Ahead Blocking Schemes … These Pull-Outs/Stretch Plays and Lateral Runs are way too slow developing plays against the quick Seahawk Run Defense and plays right into their Strength..
When the Cowboys and RB Murray ran against them, the Cowboys ran right at them, and not all this Sweeps, Stretch, pulling off-lineman for they do not work versus the Seahawk Defense as I indicated they would not in Pre-Game run up… same with the Chiefs & RB Charles a couple weeks back.. you run right at this Seahawk Defense, not around the outside

Mark Sanchez is not the type of QB that can make all the throws in the best weather. Anybody who was at the game yesterday knows that there was too much wind at field level for Sanchez to be effective.

The only way we can win a game where we have to come back from a deficit is if Foles comes back.

For all you people who don’t like Nick Foles – you should be starting to see that there is a lot more to dislike about Sanchez. If Foles played that game we would have been driving for the winning TD at the end. Because there were guys open down-field all day who Sanchez just couldn’t hit…

You will want to look at your all-22 this week.

What this game proves is that we aren’t ready for the big boys…no need to think about Super Bowls with this team…we need an upgrade of talent. We got rid of a All-Pro receiver and kept Riley Cooper…which is fine when we play Tennesse or the Giants…but when you go against Super Bowl caliber teams it bites you in the ass.
Anyone who thinks Foles would have been some great help yesterday is drunk.

No, the question is, who really wants to be on the deadskins? It has become a haven for athletes to go to kill their pro careers…or lay them to rest. Everyone knows that Djax, Maclin and Mathews is a much more potent offensive weapon system than substituting Cooper in for Jackson. Let’s just stop. Cooper is a big mouth, cancerous, race bating stiff masquerading as a 2nd receiver when he is a 4th at best..

Sockpuppet needs some more pennies in his pocket….do not feed the sockpuppet they will only continue to post stupid shit.

You it is funny that you mentioned those 2 QB’s Kool/Songs, because at this same time last year there were many mock drafts and the common wisdom was that both of those QB’s would be going very high in the 2014 NFL draft…..then after scrutiny by the NFL experts and the combine and personal workouts and visits, but dropped and dropped. My point is that while right now the consensus is that Mariotta will be gone early in the 1st, just wait and see how things shake out after he is evaluated, poked and prodded by the so-called experts….it could very well be that a better QB then you think would be available at or near enough to our drafting spot that we could make a reasonable move ( not an RGIII disaster ) and get him. I am still not convinced that Foles will not rebound and regain his confidence and play better, but I believe Chip sees the need for multiple QB’s on his team for him to be successful. Just a thought, but the draft often works out in strange ways…look how far Arron Rogers dropped.

You want to know why Manziel has not been placed in a game yet, because his the Browns leadership brass is questioning his commitment to the game and commitment to making himself better by studying the offensive game book when he is not starting. Yeah, he has shown you why he is a better first round choice. The book is not written on either one yet (Smith II or Manziel), what I do know is that I thank God you are not in charge of picking 1st round talent….Manziel, Louis Nix III and Tahj Boyd…lmao at you all day Tahj Boyd Jr!

Hey Shit for Brians.

Listen to Michael Bennett. Who earlier joked about Sanchez imitating an NFL QB.

Later he said:

“So it’s hard (for the Eagles) to play with Mark Sanchez in there. They don’t have the same offense as with Nick Foles [in there], so it’s a lot easier to scheme for them that way.”

The opponent you lauded said it would have been more difficult to play the Eagles had Foles been in you idiot.

And why? Well, because he can complete a pass further than 10 yards down the field.

We know what we have in Sanchez and he’s not our future. Foles will be the starter next year. I wonder who will even sign Sanchez. He won’t get big money but he might get a job to compete for the starting position.

And no one can argue Sanchez’s arm is stronger than Foles’ now. It was clear last game in the actual attempts by Sanchez and the play calling by Chip. I think it’s pretty clear that Chip was willing to put a lot on Foles but he’s really trying to protect Sanchez.

It’ll definitely be an interesting off-season that’s for sure. But first we have see how this year plays out. You just never know how things will end. Hopefully Foles will come back before the playoffs.

Just ask the NYG who have not one, but two superbowls. Our defense is goign to be something special. Were only a player or 2 away from getting a cool nickname like LOB. They played there asses off and have been bailing us out all year, and almost did again yesterday with that dropped pick 6. The refs clearly respect the LOB more than actual team do, cause damn what a lousy game called by the refs. You would think we’d get some love being at home.

But we can beat Seattle. If were not a top tier 1 team, then were right there on the verge. Cant wait to play them again. I tell you what, Id rather play Sea in Seattle, than GB in Lambaeu or GB even visiting pHILLY

Nah green the QB position has been the difference between this team being able to beat the big boys this year and being pretenders. I was hoping Foles would end all the QB talk after last year but he’s just as injury prone as Vick was and he has regressed to a serious question mark level. I’m talking big picture green and that game made the picture crystal clear what this team is lacking and thinking the outcome would have been any different with Foles is foolish.

I’m not sugarcoating this loss …it separated us from the elite status we all craved as Eagle fans ..however Green Bay has 4games left ,and everyone else 3 …a shit ton can ,and will happen…in thiese remaining games..that’s just the nature of this league…injuries to a key player ,upsets ,chemistry going a foul…one certainty …it ain’t over till it’s over ….I’m conceding jack…I’m beating Dallas …fuck up jerry jones Xmas ..that’s a big wrapped gift under my tree. If we do ,12-4 is in the realm statistically …who amongst us ,wouldn’t agree that’s a huge step for a second year program ? This arduous season has shown us an emergence of an elite special teams unit ….a front seven that likely will grow ,together one more season or more …a young quarterback who may not be the most eye appealing at times ,but he’s shown his toughness and ,almsot without failing ,he leaves the field with a lead ,late in a game ..he has a closers mentality..he is still like this team ,only in its sophomore campaign…I think we’ve all been deluded by our own achievements …this is a progression league ,taking steps at a time …we have shot out of a cannon and still we are potentially ,back to back NFC champs ..and likely ,a home playoff gme awaits us once again..Under any metric,that’s a huge step forward….I’m not at all drinking the green Kool aid ,but I’m very confident ,we are trending higher ,and reality is ,this offseason Seattle has financial decisions to make that will very well impact that team as we see it today..arizona ? Who knows what palmers health may bring? That leaves us and the packers from today’s rankings ..We will be relevant ,we will be contending ,and we have a division that’s in disarray …especially when dez wants his $$$.. Romos in a backbrace…Eli’s playing for a lame duck coach ..and the dead skins are what they are…in a town of sixers ,flyers ,and phillies ….who’s worried ?

Poor speculation that foles would have played as poorly as Sanchez, when healthy and with an intact o line, foles put up historic numbers this year, behind David molk and other backups he was back pedaling for his life

Every Young Qb has growing pains , foles endured his with a crappie o line

Foles Has A Big Arm, Big Pocket Passer Who Is Intelligent Tough And Sees The field. He will be back this year

Sanchez Is the backup for a reason. Kelly privately can’t wait to have foles back to save the season like he did last year

Seattle D players saying in interviews Sanchez is a joke and it would have been more difficult to gameplan and play the Eagles with Foles.

Sanchez is a joke.

At any point did you feel the Eagles could come back yesterday? I didn;t. And neither did you.

Yet when Foles is in, even when he’s playing poorly (sans oline) he’s still always grinding it out at the end.

From New Orleans, to washington, to San Fran, to Arizona…he’s always there scrapping it out and leading drives to win games. They’re no always successful, but the guy gives the Eagles a chance….even when he’s at his worst.

Sanchez, at his best, isn’t even close. It was obvious from the first two pathetic throws yesterday, both almost picked, that the O wasn’t going to be able to do shit with Mark Sanchez at the helm.

Again, doesn’t matter. Starting QB back in 2 weeks. All good.

I have been feeling that way all year about Foles, that even with as poorly he looked with his mechanics and his turnovers, he was always finding a way to get this team to drive at the end and give them a chance to win. We were commenting after the first couple games of the season about how no matter how deep the hole was that they dug themselves, that they were find a way back out…sure some of the teams were bad like the Jags and ‘Skins but he also did it against the Colts, Niners and Cardinals. You have never had that feeling with Sanchez.

The question is which Foles is coming back? The 2013 version or the regressed, back-peddeling turnover maker? We hade better hope that something has happened during his time on the bench to get his head and body working correctly….his leadership skills are there, but we need to see 4th quarter Nick all of the game now.

Just finished reading the Seattle perspective….it’s eye opening…Is this psychological warfare ,you bet it is …they called mark sanchez a joke …in quotes…is Seattle possibly stoking Dallas fire ? They may want there redemption game ,as the cowboys ,who are undefeated on the road ,head to philly..They’re also averaging ten more points on the road..the scenarios are so tempting ,for Seattle ,who rightfully so,is feeling good about there prospects..they will be looking to feast on a back up qb in the desert and then methodically dispose of San Fran for good..They’ve seen both the eagles at home and Dallas in there place…and they trashed the eagles ,called the offense simple…felt they had a small box to defend with sanchez and Kelce confirmed the eagle O line wasn’t always on the same page..shady lost his cousin,and played with a heavy heart…mark seemed spooked to me …the magnitude of all he was possibly playing for ,like millions of reasons ,why he needed to play this one game and cement a huge deal ,if not with the Eagles ,at least another organization would covet him…but now?. That game cost Mark Sanchez a lot more than it cost the Philadelphia Eagles…Right from the get go,he was that skittish sanchez…unsure of himself…chip saw it ..immediately..I think he pivoted as a coach (could we say he blinked? )…he had full intent in trusting special teams ,and his defense …and as bad as all turned out ,we were a pick 6 away from the plan ,being a 3 point deficit late at home ..Now you force Seattle to play with tight butt cheeks…but that split instance ,didn’t happen …but that was oh so close…perhaps then Seattle is pretty savvy ,trash the birds when they’re down ,hoping you shake em and don’t need see them again ,and at the same time you get your revenge game with Dallas…you gotta love the champs ..

Hey desert…we learned a lot about this team this week…this is a good team, but not an Elite team, at least not when run by a backup QB (and maybe not even with the starting QB, but that will remain to be seen)…the Eagles defense did an above average job IMO…yes they could have gotten off of the field sooner in some circumstances, but when your offense only has the ball for 18 of the 60 minutes, that leaves some very tired and worn defensive players…add the fact that the fumble left the ‘Hawks with a short field TD, I feel this defense did a great job in holding them to as few as 24 points…as much as the defense was lost in the GB game, I feel the offense was just as lost in the Seattle game…but those games are over and as far as the players are concerned they are forgotten…Chip does not often lose back to back games…no doubt that the CowGirls have something to prove and they are a different team on the road…these are the December games that you want to be a part of…hopefully Shady can get his head right along with Sanchez find his confidence again….I see our team rising to the challange and kicking the ‘Girls asses…

No way Arizona beats Philly whether it be in Arizona or Philly. That’s an awful knee jerk reaction to playing Seattle Paulman.

People just need to calm down about this loss. If I told you all at the beginning of the season that going into the Seattle game, we’d be 9-3, favored by 1, and playing with a backup QB, you all would have taken that in a heartbeat. The season is still playing out better than expectations. That being said, we have a playoff game this Sunday night. If we lose, odds are the season will be lost.

After Week 13 – Yes I have both Cardinals and Lions over the Eagles

Cardinals came from behind to beat Chiefs and actually beat the Eagles head to head earlier in the Season in case you forgot and have an overall better Record in the NFC Conference and are still in 1st Place in the toughest Division in all of Football.

Lions has won 2 in a Row by an average of 17 Points and are taking care of business and again, have a better NFC Conference Record than the Eagles

I hate to tell everyone, but Eagles NFC Conference Record is only 5-4
and if they lose to the Cowboys this Week, they will no longer control their own destiny and lose about every tie-breaker that’s out there with head to head losses to Cardinals,Packers,Seahawks already and they likely
won’t even make the Post-Season

Game vs Seahawks is over now, Eagles got schooled and spank,
Time to flush it down the Toliet and Focus on the Cowboys who are rested and will play much better this Game in Philly than they did on Thanksgiving and will be a close game and for the NFC East Crown…
This Game will Decide the NFC East Division Champion and A pl

The eagles made 3 important mistakes that cost them.
1)Chip Kelly helped Seattle by calling a timeout at the end of the half allowing Seattle to set up a successful play instead of running out the clock which lead to a 10-7 halftime lead instead of a tie.
2) Shady McCoy fumbled the football to start the half creating a 17-7 deficient.
3) Mark Sanchez’s interception was behind and short to Riley Cooper which essentially ended the game allowing the Seahawks’ to maintain a 10 point lead.

I thought the pretty bogus pass int penalty in the 1st Q, I think on 3rd and long, that set up the ‘Hawks 1st int was a killer.

Again, I am not that upset here.

Kelly ran the most vanilla of vanilla attacks (something I predicted he would beforehand) and they still kept the game close.

The Vanilla gameplan was for 3 reasons:

1 – He knows what he has in Sanchez who can’t throw over 15 yards.
2 – Kelly knows that the next 3 games (especially this Sunday) are much more important than this one one.
3 – (most importantly) He knows its likely they’ll see Seattle again this year and doesn’t want to tip his hand.

When/If the Eagles play Seattle again, (and with the starting QB), you’re going to see a very different Eagles offensive gameplan.

It is going to be difficult for the Eagles to make the playoffs as a wild card. They lost head to head with GB, Seattle and Arizona. Detroit only has 2 conference losses while the Eagles have 4 so they would lose a tie breaker with them also. Eagles have to beat Dallas and either Washington or NYG to make the playoffs. Sanchez has to win at home next week on Sunday Night.

Especially this year when the first play of possession has him stringing plays to the sideline for a loss or no gain. The rest of the series pretty much ends up being 3 and out. Especially with Sanchez. You can not take away the pass run option for the Checkdown Chico.

WR – Ted Ginn,Jr – Arizona (is 5th on the Cardinals Depth Chart)
WR – Jason Avant – Panthers (Released already by a bad Team)
DE – Lamar Odom – Bears – (Torn his ACL while Celebrating a Sack)
RB – Chris Johnson – NY Jets (Too many Carries in his Body- Toast)
CB – A Verner – TB Bucs (Disappointing Season)

The Best Free-Agent Pick-ups

Safety – Alvin Bethea (49ers) – Playing at a Pro-Bowl Level
WR – Brandon LaFell (Patriots) – Having a Great Year for Pats
DL – Authur Jones (Colts) – Has played well this Season
Safety – Malcolm Jenkins – Eagles – Has Played Well
CB – Darrelle Revis – Pats – Back to Eleite Status
CB – Anqib Talib – Broncos – Remains an Elite Cover CB
WR – Steve Smith – Ravens – Having an All-Pro Year – Big Catches

It appears to be a 2 car collision. I don’t know if cell phones, drinking or speed was a contributing factor. I just saw pictures of the 2 vehicles. The sedan has front end damage that went under the truck causing it to flip. I’m just conjecturing that since Cam decided to raise his suspension and change the wheels, he made the truck unsafe for the roadways unnecessarily and it flipped 4 times. Why change a vehicle to look cool without a safety engineer approving the design change? There is a reason Ford, Chevy and Dodge don’t sell trucks that are raised, they would get sued for the design flaw which causes death and injuries.

I don’t have a plan! I’m just a knucklehead in the stands who wants more TD’s for 10 million dollars. 4 touchdowns is piss poor for the amount of chances Shady McCoy is getting. I’m souring on Shady McCoy this season after promoting him as an elite player in the off season.

Well we know your a knucklehead…Shady is the leading rusher in Eagles history…it’s funny how you guys will bash a productive, exciting running back like Shady but defend a bum like Riley Cooper telling us what a good ‘blocker’ he is…smh…ridiculous!

Eagle I have been telling you guys how stupid he is for years now. He doesn’t have a plan, because all he does is mock everybody else’s point of view, with no insight of his own.

He brings up 3-4 guys out of hundreds that are having good seasons, and ignores the 96-97 you were correct on and has the nerve to call YOU an imbecile….hilarious hypocrisy…….I ignore guys with no common sense……How is EJ Manuel, and Geno Smith doing???….

I told you they would be crap QB’s in the NFL – all people looked at were their measurables while being surrounded with the best talent or chemistry on the top COLLEGE teams in the country, and Mariota, and Winston provide the same visual eye trap…….You haven’t seen them in the NFL yet!!!!

I do believe they should trade up – for a pass rusher – Randy Gregory, or Alvin Dupree, or trade down to get more help with the LB core – Benardrick McKinney, or Kendricks brother, a Safety like Cody Prewitt, and possible more Offensive Line depth

– There is no wisdom in giving up so much for a QB, that won’t be as good as we think, just because he ran Chip Kelly’s System, at Oregon – anybody remember Dennis Dixon, Kellen Clemens, or Joey Harrington – how did they do as pros???

Just because it’s the latest doesn’t mean it’s better, and if memory serves me correct Dixon, and Harrington both were considered Heisman Candidates as well……

Fix the Talent that is on the field with the Defense, Upgrade the Offensive Line Interior from Mathis, and Herramans, and get a receiver that can actually stretch the field, and depth of the team overall – through Free Agency, and the draft then we will have a Championship team…..

E0S is an obsessed bastard who doesn’t have a leg to stand on, with no proactive knowledge of players abilities, and talents, but feels it’s his duty to correct, troll, or harass others who are more knowledgeable, and more right then wrong….

Sit down, and shut up asshole….How’s Stephon Tuitt doing???….Can we get a little more of your wonderful insight??……or are you afraid to have the tables turned on you – and begin being trolled by us???…..I know so…..Sit down, and shut up with your joke rookie ass!!!!!!!!

To get rid of Shady is so stupid, but it is equally stupid to want to sell the farm to draft Marcus Mariota……Winston’s issues aren’t talent, it’s civil behavior – If he wasn’t talented, and playing for Florida State, he would be in jail right now.

Fyi GMCliff —
The Patriots extended OL Marcus Cannon for 2 More Years at a Total of $9 Million per ESPN, so Cannon will no longer be a Free-Agent.. Belecheck has made some great in-Season Roster Moves which have been paying off
Added LB’s Castillas, TE Tim Wright, RB L Blount, etc,etc

An amazing thing is that the Eagles have made very few Roster Transactions since the Sept 9th,which is almost unheard of
in today’s NFL

Dec 10 – Released CB Roc Carmichael-Signed Safety J Couplin
Nov 18- Placed Safety E Wolff on IR – Signed Roc Carmichael
Nov 5 – Placed OL T Herrmann’s on IR – Activated E Mathis
Nov 3 – Placed LB Ryans on IR- Signed Safety C Prosinski
Sept 9 – Placed OL Gardner, LB N Goode on IR, Evan Mathis on Short-Term IR – Signed E Acho, OL Wade Smith, T Kevin Graf

That’s it for the entire Season as far as the 53-Man Active Roster

Sept 9th –

GMCliff, calm down, why are you so mad? You just won $100,000.00 on your first try on Draft Kings. When does the check come?
Stephon Tuitt got his first start this weekend had 2 tackles, played the most snaps of any steeler DL, and knocked out Andy Dalton for the game.( Jason Campbell finished at QB) Double teamed throughout. He will be the starting DE for the the rest of the year and playoffs. That makes 2 above average starters in Stephon Tuitt and Jordan Matthews ready for the playoffs. ding! ring the success bell. Not sure if you are attributing those QBs ( Geno or Manuel ) to my liking but I’d didn’t endorse the eagles drafting those QBs or endorse anyone drafting those QBs.

Paul, I saw that signing on espn. Belicheck knows talent too. I really wanted him to replace Herramans at RG next year. Oh well on to plan 2 – Orlando Franklin, and Mike Iupati at Guard is what I desire for next year…..

GMCliff i didn’t say Tuitt was “Impact” i don’t even know how your rating system works? I asked for an explanation of how your rating system works but you have denied numerous times to explain it. I rated Tuitt’s game on Sunday above average using 50 out of 100 as average like normal people do. His game in my opinion was better than 50% comparable to Cedric Thornton’s game on Sunday ( hence above average)

….and your opinion isn’t worth two farts from a dead man….

He is nothing close to above average when his coach doesn’t think he needs him on the field barring injury…..

His starting means nothing – Casey Matthews starts for us – and unlike Tuitt, Matthews coaches felt he could start – They were just as stupid – but apparently, he doesn’t even have the potential of Casey Matthews let alone Cedric Thornton…..

He is an average player at best – his very best……

Dick Lebeau didn’t start Cam Heyward or Ziggy Hood and they were 1st round draft picks at the same position their rookie year. That is the Steelers way. Tuitt is/ was drafted to replace a 35 year old Brett Keisel. Which is exactly what he is doing. I wanted Tuitt to replace Cedric Thornton because I feared the Eagles were moving on from him since they only offered him the minimum one year 750,000 restricted contract and didn’t sign Geathers. Cedric is an unrestricted free agent this summer. If you didn’t watch the Bengal game why are you commenting on him?

And if anyone would replace Cedric Thornton, if the Eagles decide not to resign him – it would be Benny Logan, because that is his most natural position – As He isn’t a true NT –

They had no need to use 1st round pick on a project 3-4 DE like Victor Abiramiri – I mean Stephon Tuitt…..

Like I said, sit down, and shut up son, and leave the NFL Prospect Search to guys that reasonably know what they’re talking about…

Also stop talking to me about your stupid challenge. I don’t accept or, get involved because, I would be more aggressive in my approach to drafting players that I know the Eagles need – and I wouldn’t draft like Howie – and it says nothing at all about YOUR ability to evaluate talent – but you get to be petty about OTHER PEOPLES picks…….

No, this year, We’re going to pull you from behind Howie, and your going to show us just how intelligent you are, or you’ll have nothing to say to me at all, and shut up…..Rounds 2-7 Asshole

Oh God no…I am so tired of looking at mock drafts where 2 out of the 3 1st picks for the Eagles are Oregon Ducks…and none of them are a QB. I am not worried about rb this year, in 2016, Jalen Hurd from Tennessee, DJ Foster from Florida St and Derick Henry from Alabama are all backs I would consider. I would like to see Eagles go to a more physical run game and these backs would serve that purpose. At the same time I know that is not what the O-line is constructed for. If the Eagles go all in for defense this year they have to sell out in 2016 for Jared Goff…

NFL Coach’s likely to get Relieved of their Duties after the 2014 Season

1) Rex Ryan – NY Jets
2) Tom Coughlin – NY Giants (Probably moves into a Front Office Position)
3) Mike Smith – Atlanta Falcons if they fail to make Playoffs
4) Tony Sparano – Raiders who may get the HC job if they finish well
5) Doug Marrone – Bills – Depending on what new Ownership thinks
6) Jim Harbaugh – 49ers who wants out

Some New Coach’s that are already on the Hot Seat
1) Jay Gruden – Redskins – Has drawn a line in the sand about the Future of RG3 — Either RG3 or Gruden will be Gone
2) Lovie Smith – TB Bucs – Has the Game just passed him by, Team has been poorly prepared for many of their Games and already Fired their OC..
Is there a Future with Lovie at the Helm..
3) Gus Bradley – Jaguars – Has improved Roster with more Talent,but still not winning games and play in a very weak Division, probably has 1 more Season and must make a leap as far as Wins..

Coach’s out there looking for HC Opportunities

1) DC – Jack Del Rio of the Broncos wants another Opportunity
2) Mike Shannahan said he wants to Return to NFL in 2015 or he will likely Retire from Coaching
3) OC Josh McDaniels of the Patriots feels he’s ready and mature to be HC
4) OC Dana Beavil of the Seahawks has the inside track for NY Jets Job
5) OC Greg Roman of 49ers is ready and wanting to become HC
6) DC Jim Schwartz of BIlls wants to return as a HC

Current Coordinators that will likely get Fired after the 2014 Season
1) DC Rob Ryan of the Saints
2) DC Mel Tucker of the Bears
3) OC Marty Mohnerwig of the Jets
4) DC Jim Haslett of the Redskins
5) DC Perry Jewell of the NY GIants
6) DC Mike Nolan of the Falcons

The Eagles are clearly a second tier team in the NFL behind Denver, New England, Seattle, Green Bay. Those teams can and, will beat the breaks off the Eagles any day of the week or time whether on the road or at home doesn’t matter. No matter how his playoff run shakes out the Eagles have a ton of issues to get straight going into next season because at best I can only see them getting past the divisional round and, that is even questionable depending on who they are matched up with. Anyway you look at it the Eagles are not a contending team they are just an ok team with a lot of holes.

Mac,

I agree that the Eagles are second tier – but you have to be second before you can be first. Not so long ago the Eagles were in the lowest tier.

I’m not sure the Eagles have a ton of issues, but they have some. And I’m not sure they have a lot of holes, but they have some.

To me, going from 4-12 to 10-6 to 12-4 would certainly be going in the right direction. A playoff win or two would be even more progress.

They beat almost no quality teams in those two season’s. When they did matchup against one they either got beat or man handled very easily. Going in the right direction has got to come with some quality wins which I have yet to see many of those if any. I have also seen the Eagles struggle too many times against some very sub par teams. If we were to take on New England this sunday you would easily see another Green Bay game or even worse. That let’s me know we have a lot more issues and, holes than one may think.

Lets see…. week 13 last year we beat the 7-4 Arizona team, which ended their 5 game win streak and basically put them out of the playoffs… Week 14 we beat the 7-5 Detroit team. Week 16 we beat 8-6 Chicago, which put them out of the playoffs. Week 17 we beat 8-7 Cowboys and put them out of the playoffs and took the division title from them.

No elite teams in there, but some big wins vs. good teams in must-win situations. You may see this as not impressive, but I can guarantee you, going from last in the division with a 4-12 record to winning the division is an accomplishment.

Too bad you’re disappointed, but if you can’t see that going from 4-12 to 12-4 in two years in the NFL would represent ‘going in the right direction’ then I suggest you talk to some Jaguars fans. Ask them if they would trade Gus Bradley’s results for Chip Kelly’s.

Mac your right! The main difference between us and those teams is found at the Quarterback position. The Eagles management thought they had a franchise QB in Foles…they gave him a shot didn’t draft any of the good available QB’s in last year draft in order to keep the pressure off of Foles…
Turns out he just couldn’t handle the job…so now we have to go into next year’s draft and hopefully pick up a franchise QB there or find a talented QB that can be resurrected in the Chip Kelly’s offense. I say you take a look at Manuel ..kick those tires and see if Chip can do something with him

Yes Rex Ryan the same Rex Ryan who had Baltimore’s defense within the top 5 every nearly every year he DC was in Baltimore. The same Rex Ryan who’s points per game were in the teens nearly every year as DC. Matter of fact Baltimore was known only for their defense and, that disruptive, attention grabbing Rex Ryan was very much apart of that. I care nothing of your personal opinion of the man but, it is clear he knows how to coordinate a defense and, you can’t question that. I think Jerry Azzinaro would have a problem with you giving all the credit to the success to the d-line all to Billy Davis. Especially when it’s very well known that Billy Davis specializes as a linebacker coach not a d-line coach.
