Eagles vs. Broncos

The Eagles are in for a tough defensive game this week with the Denver Broncos coming to town.  They match up well on defense and with the LT Jason Peters out expect the Broncos to throw a lot at Big V, yes big V because his name is to hard for most people to pronounce.  Oh you don’t think so, well here try it out.  Halapoulivaati Vaitai (pronounced hal-lah-poo-lee-VAH-tee VIE-tie), yeah even with the pronunciation help you still screwed it up.   Any way, they are going to throw a lot his way not because he sucks but because he isn’t Jason Peters.  He may be one day just not today.  This will be okay because we can offset the blitz with quick passes and a fluid running game.

Wait!!!!!!! Did some one say running game, hell yeah.  Jay Ajayi, welcome to Philly big dog.  We are already the #5 rushing team in the NFL and with the addition of Ajayi we will be the number 1 team over the next 8 games.  Ajayi is coming off a short practice week which means he will get some designed carries.  I expect him to run the ball 10-15 times at most.  I do think he will find the end-zone.  Being able to run the ball effectively will offset the blitz packages that are sure to come.  Plus its age-old tactics in football that you use the run to set up the pass.  Did someone say pass, oh yeah that’s right we have the MVP from the first half of the season in Carson Wentz who is nasty on third downs and just so happens to lead the league in TD passes.   Sorry Deshaun Watson, it would have been nice to see you and Carson battle for that top spot.  You two are the wave of the future in this league.

The Eagles will struggle a little in the beginning but ultimately take care of business.  The statue known as Brock Osweiler will turn the ball over at least twice, and get sacked at least 3 times in the game.  Eagles will drop over 20 points in this one continuing their streak of 20+ points in a game to 13 straight games dating back to last season.

Final Score in this 24-13.  Eagles of Course.

GO BIRDS!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

Eagles vs. Redskins II

Throw out the stats and rankings for this one.  The Eagles and Redskins are going to go at it in a classic NFC East battle on Monday night football.  This game will be tough and will come down to a few simple things.  The winner of this game will be the team that controls the clock and commits the fewest turn overs.  Simple right, but that has been the formula this season.  The Eagles will need to dominate the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball.

The Eagles defense will dominate the run once again, forcing the Redskins to throw the ball.  Kurt Cousins can get hot but this week the pressure will be too much.  If the Eagles can find a way to get up by 10 or 14 early in the game it will be over pretty fast.  With the applied pressure and an improving secondary the Eagles will handle the Skins this week.

Once the Eagles get up in the scoring bracket they will shut the game down by pounding the football and converting those third downs.  My guess is the game will get a bit boring going into the 4th quarter tonight.  You better not leave early if you are a true fan.

Me I’ll be starting my day off in D3 as always, tailgating with a great group of guys.  Stop by and talk some football.

Predictions for tonight’s game

  1.  Blount over 100 yards rushing 1 TD
  2.  Carson Went goes for 250 with 2 more TD’s
  3. Eagles win this one 31 – 20.

GO BIRDS !!!!!!!!!!
