Quite a turnaround between the fumble and the ensuing touchdown pass.

Nothing is so annoying as someone going on talking when I'm interrupting.

One team can block, the other can't. Simple game, really


The pressure was all over Foles, Hunter and Griffen both decided to try to strip him instead of taking the sack, inexplicable.

Also, you forgot: one team can tackle, one can't. One team can cover, one can't, one can coach, one can't, on and on, this is just a full team choke job.

Not one blitz, tons of pressure at the end of the half by the eagles.

One of the best opening day rosters in years. Now go get 'em.

Yep, all 53 guys, and the coaching staff in full choke mode now.

Absolutely gutless

However, NFL is a game of halves, see last week and earlier today.

That couldn't have gone worse. Sigh... Starting to feel like Charlie Brown thinking the Vikings will kick that football one day.

Well, we don't have a HOF QB like the Saints and Pats do.
A couple defense/ST scores is probably our only chance.

And the entire file of Zach Ertz must have been lost in the game plan. Put Kendricks on him.

After that miracle finish last week, Zimmer came right out and stressed to the team all the mistakes they made in that game. That kind of felt like the stuffed animal moment to me.

Remember they started 5-0 last year and when they lost ther first game there was the rumor Zimmer attacked the players for losing

Umm, they played awful in the second half last week, and needed a miracle to avoid a historic playoff choke. I'd sure hope Zimmer pointed those things out.

Yes - there were some not so veiled comments about Zimmer after the season.

 

I would say I am having flashbacks to 41-0, but I blocked most of that game out of my mind and thankfully remember little of it.

At least we can stop hearing this nonsense about us having an elite defense.
This is Nick Foles shredding them in the most important game of the season.
