Looking at this thread....

 

Remember...  the Eagles ARE the defending Super Bowl Champions.   And Wentz is Luck 2.0.

 

They are really good.   Really talented.

 

We have there former OC. It should be more competitive and close

Yeah but it was simple play calling nothing special. Our D just let them walk down the field.

We let a rusty Wentz cake walk into the end zone on his first drive back from injury. Guy hadn’t even thrown a meaningful pass all year.  Hopefully that’s all he gets. 

 

So it was fine when a rusty Luck looked good week one, but it’s not ok when a rusty Wentz looks good?

 

Come on now...

The TD went to Zack Ertz.   He has caught many touchdowns.

 

It went to Dallas Goedert actually.

Yep, at least that one was on the Eagles.  I was about ready to :tvsmash:

No, it went to Dallas Goedert.  He has 2 career catches, 1 for 4 yards in a prior game, and the TD pass a few minutes ago.

It's pretty amazing how often it happens.  At least it's not just the Colts.

Just like it’s simple play calling when our offense does well.    The two franchises have things in common.

 

Philly is good.

The key is to not let Wentz go wild. We know he’s going to look good in his first game back. But can’t let him put up video game numbers

Either I misheard or the radio play-by-play guy was very confused.  I am cooking while I'm listening, so maybe I misheard.  I'm pretty sure that's what he said, though.

What? Luck played some preseason.  Wentz comes into this game essentially cold facing live bullets. Still had a better first drive than Luck did in his first preseason drive.

Wentz not showing much rust doesn't help.  Finding the seams and putting it right where it needs to be.  We're in trouble if we can't generate any pressure.

But we don’t have their talent on either side of the ball.

 

This could be a looooong day for us.

 

Hope not...   but could be...

Most people need to realize that. I actually rarely pick us to lose and am one of the most Positive Posters on here but I had us losing this game. We could still win but it's highly doubtful. Philly are the SB Champions at home and have a guy that is a Top 5-10 QB in the league back.

    • I dislike this scenario but its a pretty possible one. But if this happens then i am trading back to pick up some picks for 2021 for ammo to move up after a QB. I would say we would fall back to the mids 20's and at the point I'd like Tee Higgins.
    • When the colts give up a lot of yards they rarely get turnovers unless it’s Jameis 
    • This has been mentioned by Ballard as you said and was discussed here even before that.   I also remember Ballard basically saying that you build your culture from within first, then you can add “questionable”  Characters and the weight if the culture will put them in line.  Some would say this happens in NE.   However, i still think you need at least one “enforcer” on each side of the ball. A guy who is respected for his commitment, work ethic, and play on the Field.  Being physically intimidating and a little “nuts” when necessary doesn't hurt either.  Our team is so young so i think this is still developing.   Q needs to fully embrace the role.  He has all the necessary attributes and the On-field personality to boot.  On defense, a combo of Houston/Leonard/Sheard could be the temporary ticket, with possibly Leonard growing more into the role.   But i’d like to see a little more if Q’s “attitude” More integrated into our current culture.   Next year’s mantra should be: ”No More Mr Nice Guy.... Time To Get Nasty!”  
    • If we were to acquire the right personnel in FA would u want Ballard to trade up to get Simmons?
    • Where’s that guy who said Leonard was overrated and couldn’t cover the pass
