Good news for us: The Eagles are not dumb and their offense is light years better.

 

Top 10 defense + top 10 offense= Eagles

 

Jaguars are half a team

Agreed, even with a backup QB.

Wow, very in depth, but as a Bills fan those playcalls were quite familiar. Everyone I was with was yelling about the 1st and 2nd down runs leading to 3rd and 8.

Same. I was impressed with the first half play (and attitude) they showed but I figured the fetal position play calling and punting was coming and it did. They really could have won that game, but coaches were scared, timid when it mattered

Foles is a backup but he also has a ton of playing experience and seems to really be clicking in that offense.

 

Also, the vibe around the Eagles is amazing. Wentz is Foles' biggest cheerleader. Those guys are dialed in.

 

Unlike the Jaguars, the Eagles have an innovative and top scoring offense to go with their D. Jacksonville has that yesterday and that game isn't even close. Like the Jaguars, the Eagles pressure with 4 and get there a lot. The Eagles are so deep on offense it's crazy.

 

When it's time to pound the rock they have an amazing OL and Blount and Ajayi

Yeh, solid analysis. I watched the first half in awe of how much Hackett's playcalling and situational awareness had improved, then the second half wore on and I said to myself 'yep, that's the OC I remember.'

Yolo, the font and background color makes your original post unreadable. Any other way to post that?

Who the Pats did not want to bring back after 1000+ yards and 18 TDs last year  and replaced with Gillislee. Did he even play yesterday? No stats in the box score. Anyway, I’m sure Blount wants a revenge game on the biggest stage.

No, but you can search Warren Sharp on twitter. It’s a thread he posted today around 10am EST. 

 

I dont know why copied links from twitter shows up that way on some devices and not others. Out of curiosity what device are you viewing it on?

You can still use twitter without tweeting yourself. I have found it is useful for football stuff.

 

When I load the page initially I get that black on blue too - on both my PC and my tablet - but eventually it clears up. Are you giving it time to load and it still isn't working?

That's okay, Yolo. I am not a techie either.

Guessing it was HEAVILY influenced by Dougy.

Hacketts offense is so predictable.  First down is always that exaggerated handoff from the shotgun with very little gain.  He throws away first down every series.  Truly hated his playcalling when he was in Buffalo and see that he hasn't changed at all.  So happy he's gone.

Yup. Tried re-loading but didn't help.

Last year my office changed to an open office style (which I hate as much as I hate the Pat's**) and hence began doing my web activities in the tablet instead of my PC.

Does your company block twitter over their user sessions? Mine does, and I have the same issue.

That would be a real shame, they were lights out on offense in the first half.

 

What I took from that game was New England's defense is NOT good. So you don't need to turtle against them with a lead, stay aggressive and give your defense a chance to pin their ears back as time gets short. Once Jacksonville went passive on offense it gave the initiative back to the Pats offense, which in turn made the Jags defense reactionary and wore them down...and it all trickled back to crap playcalling and not understanding the flow of the game. All too familiar with a Marrone/Hackett unit.

Same here.  Was also very similar to the Bills' attempts to hold leads this year.  In both cases, it's hard to truly know how much of that is on the playcaller (Hackett/Rico) and how much is on the conservative head coach (Marrone/McDermott).  For me, the damning part is not being conservative, it's being hyper-predictable.  Every 1st down for the Jags was a run from shotgun.  If those were working, that's okay, but they weren't.  So do something else.

 

If a coach can only protect a lead with players that get him 4 yards a carry even when the defense knows it's coming, that coach is worthless at protecting leads.  You or I could win in that situation.
