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.

    • Ditto, totally agree.
    • should have moved on from AV a year ago they waited too long and there were not many options in the middle of the season 
    • This is a very uninformed post.     Regarding AV.  They brought in kickers two different times for an open competition and AV out kicked them.  And people forget he AV started off rough, they brought in kickers, AV outkicked them and then played well over the next few games, then he struggled again and they brought in kickers again and AV outkicked them, then when he struggled again the kicker they wanted became available and they signed him and put AV on IR.  Not really much more a team can do with competition.   Regarding JB.  If you cannot answer these questions then you do not know if there was competition or not.  How did all the QBs do in the game plan tests every week?  How did all the other QBs do in the film room?  Did they ask good questions, did they see the correct things?  Were they able to pick out coverage schemes and anticipate where the opposing player would be before the snap?  Even things like did they follow the team diet all goes into evaluating a player during the season.  Like I said, if you can't answer those questions then any comments about preaching competition but not following through are coming from a position of ignorance.
    • Burrow is the only NFL ready QB in this draft. We’re too far down to have a chance at him. So anyone else won’t be an upgrade at QB. I’d trade back a few spots grab a 2nd first rounder for next season, and then take a DT this year.
    • You and I think alike, Gramz.  The first thing I noticed were the two people sitting next to him and thought " woah!  No way are those are his kids.  Are they already that old??! ", haha.   Still waiting for Peyton to find his way to a permanent career in the broadcasting booth.  Great ambassador and spokesperson the league.
