Well the Eagles got their first no doubt about it win this season by blowing out the Giants 34 – 13, my prediction by the way was 28-13. I was so close this week. Carson looked great tossing 278 yards and 3 TD’s. The running game was effective with 29 carries and 94 yards between Smallwood and Clement. The O-Line still struggled with Lane Johnson getting pushed around and Jason Peters getting owned. All in All this was the win we needed and now with a ten-day layoff the Birds can get healthy and really get this thing moving.
One thing is for sure the Eagles love to use the Giants to get the season rolling. Last year it was a 61 yard bomb field goal that got things going. Now that may have been week three and we are now in week 6, but there is no difference. We are coming off a bad loss, it’s a short week, and the Giants stink. The birds have to win this football game. Their is no option in the matter, the Eagles have to get a W against a division opponent before things get to out of hand.
It’s been a week since that terrible loss for the birds and I am still not over it. The birds had them beat and let them off the hook. The defense looked terrible and the secondary looked pedestrian at best. Hopefully, they have put that behind them and are looking at starting on a new foot this week.
The first drive was perfect. Carson overthrew a couple times but when it counted he kept the team moving and eventually hit Dallas Goedert in the Endzone for the rookies first TD. In the second drive, he made a couple moves scrambled got hit and bounced right back up. After the collective hush the crowd new Prince Wentz was back.
Carson Wentz is back!!!!!!!!! The Birds get their number one QB back this week against the Colts. This is a perfect game for him to come back in as the Colts are not that good on the defensive side of the ball. The only downfall is that Carson has to make B and C level receivers look good. That will be difficult. Let’s get to the Breakdown:
The Eagles and Bucs squared off in an NFC battle this weekend. The Bucs were high flying while the Eagles were pretty grounded. Two long passes by Fitzmagic determined the outcome of this one. The Eagles will need to re-gather this week after a tough loss to take on the Indianapolis Colts.
Week one was a little scary as the Eagles offense as it took some time to get things rolling. On the plus side, the Defense looks legit. This week the Eagles take on the Bucs who had a great week one dropping 48 on the Aint’s. Nice defense New Orleans!!! They will need to come back to earth this week since they are going to face what may be the best Defense in the entire NFL this year.
It’s funny on how we are responding to the Kaepernick Nike ad. I’ll kick this off by saying I don’t like Kaepernick as a football player, and I don’t agree with his approach. I get the message and their are many other individuals handling it a whole lot better then him. With that said I am confused at why your so made. Who cares.
The Eagles and Coach Pederson are playing coy right now with who will be starting at QB. It is funny how short our memories are especially when it comes to Nick Foles. The world was coming down around us when he had a terrible game against the Raiders and the Cowboys, yet he still went on to win the Super Bowl. Now here we are again in an all-out panic that Foles is trash because he looked bad in meaningless games. Now we want to rush Carson Wentz back because we have no confidence in the coach or the backup QB. Take a deep breath people it’s going to be okay.
Well the unthinkable has happened and the Philadelphia Eagles have made it to the Super Bowl to face off against the New England Patriots. The Eagles have defied all odds to make here. They weren’t the fan favorite, they didn’t have the toughest schedule, they lost player after player including the franchise QB. They got a back up that thought about retirement just a year prior. Each playoff game they were doubted and made the underdogs event though they had the best record in the league. Nick Foles was touted as a bum and wouldn’t win a playoff game. Hell even the coach at one time was considered to be below average and unqualified. With all of that the Eagles and their true fans stood there with their arms folded, that blue-collar stare, and calmly said F@#$ You with each passing victory. On Feb 4th the Philadelphia Eagles and the City of Philadelphia will finally get what they truly deserve and that is the Lombardi Trophy.
