I'm looking forward to what happens if they lose. The hot takes are going to fly, the WIP calls for Foles are going to be going strong, and someone in a MAGA hat will try to blame it all on Michael Bennett.

So Wentz said week 1 is gonna be close. Sit him. It's a week and a half until their second game, I don't see the need to rush the guy.
Title: Re: Week 1 - Falcons: Banner Night, Bitches
Post by: ice grillin you on August 14, 2018, 01:34:16 PM
either the doctors clear him to play and he plays or they dont and he sits

you dont sit him cause they get an extra 48 hrs of rest week one...either his knee is 100% or its not...when its 100 he plays

i mean i suppose game shape comes into play as well but the fact that they open on a thursday should have absolutely nothing to do with it

i lean towards him not being ready just because hes not going to play in the preseason and he hasnt even done any 11 on 11 for over two weeks.

up until a few weeks i thought he was going to play....now im in the NO camp

feels like it could be a week or 2 into the season.

foles is playing thursday even though he hasnt practiced a ton which tells you its quite realistic its him in the opener
Title: Re: Week 1 - Falcons: Banner Night, Bitches
Post by: Susquehanna Birder on August 14, 2018, 02:50:33 PM
I certainly hope he plays if he's ready...but it's pretty damned nice thinking that going into Game 1 with the backup QB doesn't even remotely suggest an automatic L.

The new norm.

So strange as there has always been this excitement, anxiety, questions, hopes, fears with every opening game of my 45+ years of supporting this team.  This year - countless hours of SB LII replays, no excitement about the off season, no interest in preseason, more excited about the banner, and i do think they are going to come out flat as shtein Thursday night but like you said games a throw away and I’m ok with it.  Than again i thought they were going to steam roll the Buccaneers in 03 when they opened the Linc.

Ertz and Goedert. I think Gibson is an early season sleeper with Jeffery out. He's an unknown with sneaky speed and he's had a good camp. I like him as a deep threat early.

Wouldn't be my biggest bet ever...just my first on an individual game.


I just don't see how this is a W. None of the skill players played in the pre-season. Everyone's rusty. Super Bowl hangover. Falcons out for revenge.

Would need some big time plays from the D or special teams to pull this one out, IMO.

The difference when Foles throws immediately and steps up versus when he gets happy feet is dramatic.  Incredibly accurate dropping back and throwing in rhythm.  Whenever his feet go backwards after he plants, good luck.  Doesn’t have arm strength to drive ball then.

Excellent observation.  He starts getting River Walk feet he's better off throwing the ball away.  You're right, the arm strength isn't there.

Decision by Gibson really kills things to end the half here.  Could be a big swing if eagles punt deep in own possession.

Probably should be. It’s clearly Bad Nick tonight. He looks slow at diagnosing the defense, he’s not particularly accurate, and generally seems mentally unprepared. Would love to see a more effective run game though.

Not sure why they went so Sproles heavy in the first half. Ajayi is clearly the better back especially between the tackles. Sproles is perfect for change of pace plays like that pitch 36 and screens/passes in the flat.

This team is awesome. I don't care how ugly it is, just won again without the league MVP under center. Good teams continue to win with injuries and you can't get a greater injury than your star QB. I absolutely love this team.

Just keep winning despite all the adversity.

I'm hearing reports that Howie is asking for 2 first rounders for QB Nelson Agholor.
His QBR was > Ryan's + Foles'

One take away from the game is they have to find a way to somehow pay Graham. They won tonight because of the pressure the D line got on the last drive, especially the 7 play sequence starting from around the 10 yard line. Schwartz moved Graham to tackle on the left side next to Bennett for the last 4 plays and they all crushed it, especially 55.

Nice to see how things in the universe eventually balance out. To me this was like a counterpoint of when the Eagles lost to the Bucs in the NFCCG and deja vu opening night of the next season with the same moribund game plan and ending.

I can't believe I stayed up to watch that unenjoyable mess of a game. Don't get me wrong, go birds and all of that...but watching that was painful. The NFL isn't even close to being as fun to watch as it was even a decade ago, let alone two. The game is just dying in front of my eyes. Now, get off my lawn.

So he really did take Torrey Smith’s slot?

Also Jason Peters is the farging man.  What a legend.

He's the man

The interior of the line struggled and they did a bad job at blitz pick ups...especially early on.

He can be replaced by Nicky Six when Wentz comes back.

Darren Sproles is done.  Doug’s gotta know that, right?

I thought he came up big on a couple plays where the Eagles needed someone with a brain to handle the ball. He wasn't breaking big screens or anything, but he has a role.

Looked just fine to me. He needs to be used on PR and as a change of pace back, not as an every down between the tackles grinder. Screens, flats, wheel routes, pitch 36 etc.

Sproles is not done at all.  Don't know what game you were watching, but he was a bright spot on offense and ST.

Dumbest player award: Shelton Gibson (narrowly over Tre Sullivan)
Most disappointing player award: Zach Ertz. Played like he saw someone else farging Julie right before the game.
What year will he learn not to bite on that award: Jalen Mills
Player who I'm secretly kinda worried about award: Jake Elliot
Shocked he drew no flags in this flagfest award: Lane Johnson

This is funny
