NFL Network Report: Mark Sanchez Will Get The Start

MarkSanchezvsBucs2NFL Network is reporting that Mark Sanchez will start for the Eagles today in place of Sam Bradford, who will miss his second start of the season.  Bradford had a separated shoulder in the Miami game and he endured a concussion.  I’m not surprised that he’s being held out.

Sanchez has got to avoid turning the ball over.  Turnovers are the most important statistic in winning and losing next to the score of the game.  If you turn the ball over, your team usually loses.

He’s got to make better decisions than he did in the Tampa Bay game and he’s got to be more accurate with his throws.  Sanchez almost got Zach Ertz and Brent Celek knocked out when he threw some balls over their heads.  He needs to check his mechanics to make sure his footwork is correct and he’s following through on his throws.

The Birds are going to need to run the football against the Lions or the Detroit defensive line is going to be getting sacks of and hits on Sanchez.  If he gets pounded enough, you can be sure he’s going to turn the ball over.  I would like to see DeMarco Murray carry the football 25 to 30 times and the Birds should give Darren Sproles more carries than he has been getting.

Ryan Mathews won’t play today, but Kenjon Barner will take his place, so he should get at least 5 carries.  If they can get the running game going, it will wear out the Lions defense.

Sanchez and the Eagles offense must avoid those three and outs because the “UpTempo” offense is only an advantage when they get a couple of first downs.     If the offense goes three and out, they’re off the field and the Lions defense is rested.

Check me out on FOX29 at 10am this morning.

Mark Sanchez’s last 6 games as an Eagle…….

Marc Sanchez, despite the effusive praise of the GCobb jester Kooltwit, who even yesterday was using words like “better” to describe the abomination that is Sanchez, is fucking horrible.

Inactive for Today’s Game
QB Sam Bradford RB Ryan Matthews, TE Zac Ertz, CB D Rice , DE B Bair
And OT & WR who were called up

Both OL Jason Peters & Jason Kelce will Play and are expected to Start but is questionable how long they’ll play…

I expect the Lions to come out Sky High and go up early and make the Eagles 1 Dimensional and have Sanchez attempting 40 + Passes which we all know is a recipe for a loss… This Game over Early as Lions go for their 4th Win in their last 5 Games and are actually playing pretty well after their horrible start
The last 3 QB’s the Eagles have faced (Winston, Tannehill & even Cassell) all lit this Eagles Defense up and I expect QB Stafford to have a huge game with WR Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate and TE Ebron all to put up some good Stats

Lions Roll 36 – 16 in a Game that’s essentially over by Halftime

The Eagles do not Win a Game the remainder of the 2015 as the Coach’s & Players have all quit on each other and now everyone is playing for themselves which is what happens to bad Teams that have no Leadership..
The Eagles are a Bad Team right now and about to become worse..

Wishing Everyone a Happy Thanksgiving

RB Theo Riddick was the RB the Eagles Traded to the Indy Colts for Kicker Cody Parkey… Riddick has 50 + Catches out of the Backfield and is a matchup nightmare for the Eagles.. LB M Kendricks has no chance covering this quick back, none of the LB’s do and the Eagles should try having Safety Walt Thurmond or a Nickle Bck (Biggers or Rowe)

Trey Burton & Kenjon Barmer were the hottest Players on the Eagles in the Summer and both not utilized once the Season Started
Ertz should have been onShort-term IR as he didn’t play all Summer
Barner should have been elevated and used in the Kick/Punt ReturnGame over both Huff & Yes, Sproles who fair catches too many Punts in my opinion

Yep the Summer, Preseason, Practice, Scrimmage or whatever you want to call it.. As I stated, Burton & Barner made Plays all Summer more than the “Starters” did and you can add LB E Acho to this list as well and they cut him while the Trio of ILB’s of Ryans, Kendricks & Alonso can’t stop anyone ..
How bad is it that soon as Rookie Zj Hicks goes down, the Eagles Defense goes to shit which tells you how bad Ryans, Kendricks & Alonso have been playing..

For the Good Teams, you are Correct
For Teams that are Rebuilding and which had 10-12 New Starters and 20 + New Players on your Roster, then Yes, Preseason Performances do matter
Not the final Scores or the Teams Records but to determine whether Players can Play or not, whether they can Win the 1 on 1 Battles that will occur during the Regular Season…
Bottom Line the Eagles Talent Wise are in the Bottom 1/3 of the NFL,
Combine this with their shitty Coaching and you end up with a bad Team which is what they are, it’s time to Play the Young Players..

Eagles Defense and Secondary will give up 400 Yards to Stafford today
Now with CB Carroll out for the Game, their Defense will not Stop Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate, Moore and Riddick..
Now the Lions wratched up their Pass-Rush and Sanchez folds like a cheap suit.. This Game is Over in my opinion. As another Lions Score here to make it 21-7 will make Chip Kelly have Sanchez passing almost every down which plays right into the Lions best part of their Defense which is their Pass-Rush ..
Chip Kelly and Billy Davis Suck, it really is this simple when wondering what’s happened to our Eagles… They get Out-Coached & Out-Schemed every damn game and I know Owner Lurie is not a Football Guy, but even he has to be aware of how poorly Coached these Eagles really are..

Can Eagles do something….anything…other than a scree pass when Sproles comes in.

I mean its getting destroyed before it even begins each and every time.

Didn’t we see about a whole plethora of different plays 2 years ago? Or did it just seem that way?

The fake screen? Fake to one side come back to the other? Vanished.
Four verticals? Vanished
Any pass over 10 yards in the air? Vanished.
The unbalanced line? Vanished.

All this is is, short crosser, Murray sweep, short crosser, Murray sweep, short crosser, screen to Sproles, short crosser, Murray sweep, short crosser, Murray sweep, short crosser, screen to Sproles,

Its 3 plays.

It looks like a 5×8 Index Card that can’t hold more than 12-15 Plays on it
He’s a Joke, Eagles Drive :45 Seconds, Defense back on the Field and the Lions are about to put this one out of the Reach by Halftime which is what I expected and called ..
The Eagles will not Win a Game the rest of the Season as I have also stated for 2 Weeks now.. It’s over..

There are 4 plays. I missed one.

1 – Murray dive up middle
2 – Murray sweep to sideline
3 – Short crossing pass (never more than 10 yards)
4 – Screen to Sproles every time he comes on field

Over and over and over.

Where did everything else go? Christ, even Vick, who is no rocket scientist was running more plays than Kelly lets Sanchez and Bradford run.

Its beyond pathetic

Honestly….who here is invested in the team?

Bradford? Nope. Ouch his “sore” shoulder keeping him out.
Murray? New – nothing invested
Matthews – nothing
Austin – Nothing
Maxwell – nothing

A pile of FA mercenaries for whom the war is now over. They’re out…..and the rest of the team is following suit.

It’s a shame they didn’t Trade Sproles to the Patriots or other Playoff contending Team so he could go out with a chance to Win while the Eagles could play Kenjon Barner and get a mid Round Drsft Pick in Return
Sproles will end up getting Released after this Season anyways
Mikes Austin, DeMeco Ryans should just be released

Play Huff, Barner, Burton, MS2, Rowe, Rice Couples and find out about these guys for the Future

At Orlando Intl on way back from family vacation…missed both games this week….just able to check game updates. Seems the defense has reverted back to the old…seems the team has quit on both sides of the ball…this defense can prevent points and this offense can’t produce points….this is embarrassing I am actually happy I haven’t been able to watch this disgrace of a coach and team….last time I checked Murray had 22 yards on 11 touches..pitiful!

Far from a Billy davis fan (I agree he’s terrible), but unless he switches Thurmund to corner and Rowe to safety, he has no choice. Rowe even as a rookie, is still better than the $63 mill dollar bum.

Take the Dropped Passes by Golden Tate in the 1st Half and Bell here in the 2nd half and the Lions would have 35 Points already ..
Billy Davis should have been Fired last Off-Season which was a critical sign to me that Chip Kelly was not fit to run an Organization

Eagles are getting pushed around
The Lions Came in Ranked 31st in the NFL in Rushing and the Lions have 125 + Yards already … Stafford has 250 Yards Passing …

Game has unfolded just as I expected and called from my original Post

4 Games in a Row that Eagles Defense has gotten picked apart by opposing QB’s who are Rated as Average at Best (Stafford, Winston, Tannehill & Cassell)
