Eagles Win again!

It’s Eagle Wednesday!

Another week, another win, another sloppy game.

The Eagles looked great on the first drive as I watched in the break room at work. Vick drove the team right down the field into the endzone, then threw an interception. I thought to myself, here we go again. It happened 2 more times for a total of 3 redzone turnovers. The week before we beat Cleveland after committing 5 turnovers, surely that was a one time thing, I thought to myself. But again, Vick showed his true colors in the 4th quarter leading the Eagles to another comeback victory.

The story of this game however, had nothing to do with the players. The Refs were terrible, god awful. The game was slow, multiple fights, and pushing matches were going on after almost every other play. And the biggest flaw to me (Biased of course) was the blown call with 1:55 left on the clock. Vick through an incomplete pass that was incorrectly ruled a fumble. I mean this one wasn’t even close. However, the officiating was terrible all around. Both team had some lousy calls, both teams got away with a lot. Most glaring was DeSean Jackson thrown punch. That is usually an automatic ejected. Yet, the refs let it go. Poor game, but an acceptable result.

Again this week, they need to clean up the turnover problem. They can’t keep winning this way.

And here’s my Photo of the game. Brent Celek hurdles Ed Reed. Reed is the best Safety in the game today, if not ever to play the game. Needless to say, this type of thing doesn’t happen to him all that often. (and he intercepted a pass on the next play).

Next week Philly plays at Arizona. They play the Kolb, whom they traded to the Cardinals in return for a Defensive Starter (DRC) and an 2nd round draft pick. Arizona’s Defense has been very good as of late. DeSean will have his hand’s full with Arizona’s corners, most notably, Patrick Peterson.

I think Eagles clean up their turnover problem and advance to 3-0.

Eagles win 31-17

See ya next week.

Eagles Win!

The Eagles played the Browns this week. The best part of this game was the Defense, the Eagles played lights out. They forced B. Weeden into bad situations and 4 interceptions. However, the Browns were still in it up until the final minutes because M. Vick matched Weeden’s 4 INTs.  It was Kurt Coleman’s second interception of the game, in the final minute that sealed it for the Eagles.

Eagles over the Browns 17-16

 

Next week the Eagles play the Ravens. The Ravens looked unstoppable Monday, while crushing the Bengals. If Mike Vick plays like he did against the Bengals, it will get ugly, early. The Matchup for me to watch will be Eagles new MLB D. Ryans vs. Ravens Pro Bowl RB R. Rice.

We shall see.

In other quick news. My Fantasy team lead by B. Green-Ellis, B.Marshall, and LeSean McCoy won.

Weekly Eagles Update

I figured I would start a new segment. The weekly Eagles update.

As many of you who eventually read this know, I am all about Philly.

The major news of the past week was that the Eagles agreed to terms on an extension with RB LeSean ‘Shady’ McCoy. Britt and I were lucky enough to see him last year when Philly played Seattle (and lost).

So in the past few months the Eagles have taken care of their own. Resigning players such as Trent Cole and DeSean Jackson.
