Game Night - Wildcard

***

One day the Eagles will win the Super Bowl. Could be this year, 5 years from now, or 75 years from now. You never know when it will happen.

Enjoy the ride, not just the destination.

Let's hope the Eagles give us a good show tonight.

GO EAGLES !!!

NERVOUS

Cliff said...

Listen to the bell, Grossbard. It tolls for thee.

Tommy Lawlor said...

No matter what happens, it does feel good to be in the playoffs.

Tommy Lawlor said...

I hate player intros.

Cliff said...

A little Jones-on-Jones crime to begin the game. Nice.

Cliff said...

I hate when players put "THE" in front of their college when their school's name doesn't actually contain it (Patterson, AHEM).

Edward said...

Its not looking quite as easy but they're still trundling down the field :s

Edward said...

Ah, nope. Looking easy.

Tommy Lawlor said...

Dallas is emptying the playbook right now. We need to hold them to a FG.

Edward said...

Their screens are shredding us, once again!

rick said...

Great stop!

Edward said...

Now that is more like it D!

Tommy Lawlor said...

We stopped them. Beautiful.

Field position isn't good, but the defense showed up and that's a great start.

Mr_Boomy said...

Can't wait to see what we got on offense!

Cliff said...

Good confidence booster for the D.

Crossing my fingers for a long drive here.

rick said...

Get that pass UP Donovan.

Tommy Lawlor said...

Bad start for the offense.

Big hit for Joe Mays. He's become a good STer.

Mr_Boomy said...

GREAT 3 and out.

Adam said...

what is the offense doing??? and that was an awesome hit from joe mays

Tommy Lawlor said...

Gocong with a sack!!!

Ben said...

put spoon in the middle, put the dream at will. i'm sick of this sh**. I love trot but he's on our roster not by choice

Cliff said...

Ya'll see where Gocong lined up there, right?

Tommy Lawlor said...

Once again, good D.

Tommy Lawlor said...

Field position sucks.

I'd love just to get 15-20 yards and punt the ball. A nice long scoring drive would be acceptable as well.

Edward said...

Please offence just manage 20-30 yards at least!

rick said...

Little different feel to this game so far. Niiiice. Now let's change our field position.

Tommy Lawlor said...

Hamlin has always been a headhunter. I liked it when he was at Arkansas. That changed when he became a Cowboy.

Edward said...

F*ck

rick said...

Gocong coming up big so far!

Tommy Lawlor said...

The slow start by McNabb is very troubling. We've got to get going on offense in some way, shape, or form.

Mr_Boomy said...

Our offense is driving me crazy

Mr_Boomy said...

We have 12 yards on offense, how about that?

Edward said...

Pretty bogus call!

Tommy Lawlor said...

Dallas knocked on the door a long time. They were bound to score something. Too bad it was a TD.

Adam said...

i like how the official in the back of the endzone with no view of the play was the one who threw the flag.

Tommy Lawlor said...

Did I mention that Vick is my hero?

Edward said...

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!

rick said...

Take THAT!

Mr_Boomy said...

THAT IS EAGLES FOOTBALL VICK

Cliff said...

My hometown hero!!!!!!!!!!!

rick said...

Afwully quiet in big d

Edward said...

I really wish i had a gun to shoot in the air right now!

Edward said...

Bugger, challenge.

Tommy Lawlor said...

I can't tell if the ball hit the ground or not. Ed normally doesn't overturn many calls. Let's hope that is true right now.

Feels good to have some things go our way for a change.

Mr_Boomy said...

Common, give us that pick

Mr_Boomy said...

This is a momentum changing kind of play now

Edward said...

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaan.

Tommy Lawlor said...

So much for momentum.

Mr_Boomy said...

DAMMIT, but I like Hochuli anyway, he's a good ref

Ben said...

romo let that one go a little early... hope he's starting to feel the heat

Tommy Lawlor said...

Ever feel like the football gods are out to get you?

rick said...

too many conversions on 3rd down!

Tommy Lawlor said...

Our RZ defense is pretty darn weak.

em26jamie said...

Tommy, the defense in general is weak. The reversed call kill them. That was an absolute killer.

Tommy Lawlor said...

I sure wish Donnie would run.

Adam said...

so much for flipping field position.

Edward said...

That was an easy easy first down on 2nd and 4 if he ran it. We can't let the cowboys score now.

Tommy Lawlor said...

McNabb is starting to really frustrate me. He's been under pressure, but we have yet to see one good throw from him.

em26jamie said...

Punt team isn't doing too well either. Too many good returns.

ZackISM said...

Kevin Kolb should be the Eagles QB next year. No doubt about it. Donovan McNabb is finished, and terrible. They'll be lucky to get a pick for him, but it's time to move on. New coach would be nice too. I'm ready to blow this team up.

Tommy Lawlor said...

@ Adam...

Great point about FP. STs let us down right there.

ZackISM said...

Time for back-ups anyone. Dallas has our number. I hate Andy Reid, Donovan McNabb and everyone else on the eagles.

Edward said...

We're screwed.

ZackISM said...

1/5 - lucky not to have a INT, I can't stand McNabb offically. I hate him. Never imagined I would be able to dislike one of my favorite players as much as I do Donovan. But his flaws become more and more obvious....

1st and goal @ the 6...game over.

ZackISM said...

Other than Vick's one play - we have what, 2 first downs on offense, both penalty aided? This is a offensive minded coach? Seriously?

What are the McNabb lovers going to say after this one?

Defenses fault, that the offense, left them out there for a hour?

Mr_Boomy said...

I hate it when they compare the stats

Tommy Lawlor said...

The D came up big again.

McNabb and the offense have got to wake up and get in the game.

Ben said...

put in vick... we all know mcnabb does better after being benched!

Adam said...

why is mcnabb always just standing on the sideline watching the D? Shouldnt he be on the bench with marty trying to fix the offense?

Edward said...

FG thank god, we need a score when we get the ball back.

rick said...

wow, we needed to get them to settle for a FG. we're still in the game but we've got to do something here. Does anybody think there's a chance Reid could pull Donovan in the 2nd half for Kolb? Probably a long shot but Donnie's doin' nothin'.

ZackISM said...

This guy is seriously considered good by some people? I mean he's flat out terrible. Holds the ball way to long. Ben Roethlisberger without the accuracy.

Edward said...

Game over.

ZackISM said...

This is how the Eagles represent Philadelphia? They don't show up for two of the biggestgames of the year. It's time for a new regime. I like a lot of the kids on this team, but I have no interest in watching them ever were Eagles uni's again.

em26jamie said...

Losing 3 games in 1 season to the Cowboys should be a firable offense.

Tommy Lawlor said...

We gotta hold them to a FG to keep this thing reasonable.

The good news is that we get the ball to open the 2nd half.

The bad news is that we get the ball to open the 2nd half.

ZackISM said...

If Andy and McNabb are here next year, my support of this team is going to wane. I'll want them to lose, to get the losers out of town. They were winners, but not anymore. 11-5 against 0 winning records, isn't a legit record. We're a bad playoff team. BAD. Just lucky that the rest of the NFC is a joke.

ZackISM said...

Can the NFL put in a Mercy rule just to save Philly fans from this second half?

20-16 was bad
24-0 was god awful
17-7 (with the ball in the red zone) is about enough to jump.

rick said...

That Anthony Spencer/Kevin Kolb trade has come back to bite us this year..(yes, I know, Stew Bradley, etc.)

ZackISM said...

24-7 @ half time....good stuff. Can we just go in victory formation now? Give up?

Edward said...

Tempted to go to bed. Don't fancy watching the eagles collapse until 4:30am.

Edward said...

Yeah thats it. Enjoy the second half!

Myron said...

MAN. I didn't think they could POSSIBLY be worse than last week, but they managed to do it.

This is just atrocious. Possibly the WORST Eagles game I've EVER watched. This season was a complete and utter waste of a garbage dump of an Eagles season. Goddammit.

Baloophi said...

Take away the 14 points Ed Hochuli has given them and the Cowboys are still up 13-7.

The offense has totally derailed.

Ben said...

wut happened to quick slants and screens? anything to get a few yards and keep the chains moving at least a little bit...

Baloophi said...

Also, less Jerry Jones cam, please. Sure, it's only taken him 13 years to figure out his job, but I'd even prefer they show George W. Bush instead... not really, but still.

I guess Dallas is - ironically - the one place Bush can go and not get assassinated.

100% garbage. I know it's only one season, and not 14 winless playoff seasons in a row, but it does not feel good.

At least play with some pride, right?

em26jamie said...

Tommy, you working on the draft yet?

rick said...

I'm trying to find the silver lining here..............uh,.......................well there's..................ah...................nobody's been seriously injured tonight!

Ben said...

oh and... our D can't possibly be good when they're left on the field all game. It's less their fault than it is the fact that Dallas has started around the 50 almost every single possession lately. and sometimes even closer to their own endzone.

I just see everyone turning heads and saying "how are we gonna fix this?" -- not "give me the ball and let's get things going"

We need that veteran guy like how Shipley stepped up for UT in the 2nd half. I'd frankly love to force the ball to Avant now.

Baloophi said...

How about... center sneak?

Ben said...

Shawn Andrews would look pretty good right now...

Adam said...

marty needs to be fired right after the game

Dr. Ogrodnick said...

Andy's epic failure part 2. How can you have your team so unprepared to play twice in a row against the same team. No pride. No heart. Way to lead donny. This team will never win with andy or donny. Big fat losers

ZackISM said...

Can Kolb really be worse?

Mr_Boomy said...

Yes, throwing Kolb into this game wouldn't help

ZackISM said...

McNabb is the Eagles worst player on offense. I have no doubts of this.

ZackISM said...

Kolb may not help tonight, but he can't really be much worse than Donovan. Almost impossible.

Mr_Boomy said...

I'm fightinh with my TV

Tommy Lawlor said...

Donovan is just having an awful game. He's 8 of 18 so far. Romo has at least 5 completions on 3rd down.

ZackISM said...

Donovan's playing poorly in a big game? Sounds a lot like last week. Sounds a lot like a lot of his games.

ZackISM said...

I can't wait for Kolb next year, if he sucks at least it's new. McNabb's insane levels of inconsistency drive me insane.

I really wish Reid would leave and take Marty with him too.

Mr_Boomy said...

I thought Donovan had a good rating againts the blitz, I was wrong probably.

And every time we go deep, there seem to be safety help for Dallas. Why don't we just take what the defense give us?

ZackISM said...

"Why don't we just take what the defense give us?"

Because McNabb couldn't read a defense if his life depended on it. I can't believe he's lasted 11 years in the NFL. I truely can't believe some people still consider him goodl.

ZackISM said...

Eagles defense is going to get blammed for this laugher, but everyone who watched knows this game was McNabb, Reid and the offenses fault.

Tommy Lawlor said...

Welcome to the offseason.

Tommy Lawlor said...

Donovan has been cold recently. He's streaky. Normally he doesn't get on a cold streak at this time of the year.

Adam said...

I want to know what andy and marty were doing all week? How can a team be so unprepared

Mr_Boomy said...

Donovan always hold the ball too long in this kind of game, never have the quick release to counter the blitz like Kurt Warner or Romo.

And we just gave up another touchdown and this season.

ZackISM said...

Can they put Kolb in? Game is over, might as well get him a few snaps no?

ZackISM said...

Tommy,

Steaky doesn't cut it as a NFL QB. If you are streaky, you'll never win a Super Bowl. I'd rather have Ryan Fitzpatick as my QB - at least I wouldn't have this false hope.

ZackISM said...

8 of 19 and counting.

ZackISM said...

8 of 20 with a interception. This is a Pro QB?

Tommy Lawlor said...

Horrible throw by Donnie.

Dr. Ogrodnick said...

Andy and donovan: losers for life.


Wow. Donovan's best play of the game is a fumble recovery off of an interception.

ZackISM said...

McNabb is such a pussy. This guy is not a man.

ZackISM said...

9 for 22. If this were baseball - we'd have a star.

Mr_Boomy said...

How about the "We need more weapons" talk in the offseason.

Donovan is my role model playing football, but I couldn't stand his play lately.

I'll try to be optimistic again in the coming offseason, another year for the young guys to develop. Another year for Jason Peters working into our system.
The big kid might comeback from the injury.(Also Jackson?)

Get Bradley back at MLB.

Kiss good bye to Westy.

Have a good draft with Roseman as GM?

ZackISM said...

Wow, anyone else hoping we sign Jason Campbell or Kyle Orton to be our QB next year?

ZackISM said...

Only way I can be optomistic about next year is if Donovan and Andy are gone. If Donovan goes, I'll be cautious but have some false hope. Both need to be escorted out of Philadelphia.

ZackISM said...

McNabb supporters on TATE next week...


If the Eagles defense had scored 27 points, McNabb would have been fine.

Mr_Boomy said...

Andy is a good coach, Donovan might not be the right guy for his system.

I kinda think Donovan is a better fit for the Steelers' kind of offense.

How about we get a new OC?

ZackISM said...

How about we get rid of Donovan....He can't win here. Maybe if we had the 2000 Ravens defense he'd be okay. But he's a pussy as a QB.

Mr_Boomy said...

I love Donovan but I'm rational enough to see that he's not playing well.

Without Vick's TD this would be frikkin embarressing.

ZackISM said...

No offense Mr. Boomy - this is embaraassing with Vick's TD.

Tommy Lawlor said...

McNabb has led us to 10 points in the last 9 Qtrs.

Mr_Boomy said...

Yeah, it's a blow-out anyway

Baloophi said...

Losing two games in a row in this freakshow of a "stadium" is an extra level of embarrassment we don't need.

Mr_Boomy said...

Last year our offense was decent in the playoff.
This year...

Pitmanite said...

He doesn't go cold this time of year??? He's typically been horrible to average or hurt in all of playoff losses. When can u remember in a huge playoff game saying "you know what, donnie played like a pro bowl bad ass in the loss today." there was a stat showing that his QB rating has been pretty bad in all of our playoff losses.

Thanks for the memories Donnie, but let's move on and let kolb grow w/ our young players.

Tommy Lawlor said...

All we need is 3 TDs.

Mr_Boomy said...

Yeah, a TD...
Should we be happy with that?

Mr_Boomy said...

A couple of defensive or special team TD would be o.k.

I mean for us, not the Cowboys

Baloophi said...

I don't get the Dallas fans... booing after we score a TD? Did they expect us to lay down like they did last year? Or are they booing their own defense? If so, I thought we were the only "crappy" fans...

Strange strange city... strange strange state.

Remember when their governor became president and ruined our country? Good times.

rick said...

Worst part is Jerry Jones high-fiving George W. Fucking Bush.........The Evil Empire united at last.

Mr_Boomy said...

LOL! Evil Empire~

Tommy Lawlor said...

There is a lot to complain about tonight, but the effort of the defense isn't on that list.

Baloophi said...

Tommy -

Stop the insanity. What will end this cycle? Other than the temperature, I'm not sure "hell" can be much worse. This team has taken years off my life.

Tommy Lawlor said...

What will end this cycle?

More beer.

The secondary needs a lot of help and we have a big decision at QB.

Baloophi said...

Way ahead on the first prescription, doc.

It will be an interesting off-season for sure...

In all seriousness, thanks for another fun season, Tommy.

Tommy Lawlor said...

Miserable end, but the overall season was a lot of fun.

I've got friends that follow bad teams and those guys feel like this more than half the year.

rick said...

This team has too many on IR. Thanks Eagles for a great season. This was never meant to be their Super Bowl season with all those injuries. (Cowboys, by contrast, have NO ONE on IR). Big question going forward is: do the Eagles clean house now with the veterans?........Sheldon, Donovan, etc.

Baloophi said...

Since it will inevitably be an issue, what does a game like this do to McNabb's trade value? Will a team that feels like it's only a QB away really want a guy who - from time to time - can't complete a pass to save his life in big games? If I were a GM for another team, I'd find it hard to sell a large package of picks for McNabb to the owner/fanbase...

Tommy Lawlor said...

McNabb's hot. Too late for a comeback?

Dollar Brand said...

I turned off the TV @ half to play Monopoly with my 9 yr old daughter. She has just bankrupt me and won the game. It was more fun than that playoff game. I don't have the stomach to think football right now. That was embarrassing.

Baloophi said...

I have NEVER heard a stadium play "Goodbye" on their PA system...

classy.

em26jamie said...

I think it's Kolb's time now.
We need to fix the defensive secondary and find a center. JJ will probably miss next year too and then some day we'll ask ourselves, "whatever happened to JJ?" Whatever happened to Bubba Miller? See?
