Quote
When the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field for their Week 5 matchup, a prominent battle in the trenches will feature two of Hawaii’s finest.

Eagles left guard Nate Herbig and Steelers nose tackle Tyson Alualu are both graduates of Saint Louis School, although the 22-year-old Herbig is 11 years younger than Alualu.

I couldn't tell you the last time I enjoyed watching an Eagles/Steelers game, and I'm expecting this one to be a huge shteinshow. A real fargaroonie.

Pretty salty about that drive...D was robbed twice.

Now f'n Wentz and Co. has to get some first downs.  Can't just go three and out and put this frustrted and tired defense back into the fire.

This is one of the least bad tackling Eagles teams I can remember. They can't create turnovers though.

I think there might be defenses with more turnovers than the Eagles defense has punts.

Will any of those guys be on the team in 2022?

Wentz is the real disaster going on this season. He's really terrible, among the worst in the NFL. And he's the franchise. If the division was out of reach I feel like the Eagles would bench him for a fake injury for a few weeks until he gets his head back.

I think Driscoll is the only one even under contract for that long. Stout does a great job getting the most out of guys but from what I've seen none of them have been making me say "wow, that guy's a bonafide starter". If they keep being serviceable all season maybe I change my mind.

Bad day for Zach Ertz's trade value.

Seriously with what they have invested in Wentz they would need to be seeing Patrick Mahomes shtein out of Hurts in practice to consider giving up on him during this season, no matter how much Wentz stinks. It's an unmitigated disaster for the next three years if he doesn't turn it around.

Just had this conversation with a buddy of mine, really happy with the progress those young lineman are making.

Now if we can find some linebackers that can play and a few promising prospects in the secondary that can cover.  So over Mills.

Post by: QB Eagles on October 11, 2020, 05:12:33 PM
Jim clearly doesn't believe in LB as a position of value. Makes it all the more baffling he put one on Claypool for the dagger play. Every team has holes on defense, but there's no excuse for showing your ass to the offense on the most important defensive snap of the game. Make the offense earn it. It was a pitch and catch every NFL team could have completed, possibly even the Eagles.

Ok, we didn’t discuss this yet.  The TV crew said the longest FG ever made at Hienz Field is 54 yards.  In 20 years, 54 yards!  Do your homework Doug.  Odds were stacked against skinny bones jones making that. 
Title: Re: Week 5 - Steelers: Yinzer Ahoy
Post by: QB Eagles on October 11, 2020, 06:27:10 PM
I don't see any reason for attempting a FG over 55 yards in any stadium unless it's the end of a half, OT, or neither team has been able to do anything on offense. With 3+ minutes left around the 40 yard line I would have liked to see a run on third down, with the hope that you either convert or get 4th down into QB sneak range.

Even if that thing was converted I feel it lowers your chance of winning compared to keeping the ball away from the Steelers.

Would’ve been interesting if he had made that in that most of us don’t have the faith we once had in Elliot.  Would our faith have been restored?  Even if he had made it there was still 3:00+ on the clock and this defense.

Post by: Don Ho on October 12, 2020, 05:56:40 AM
Watched the condensed game on NFL Ticket as I missed Q1.

- O Line did great, bunch of young, inexperienced players did a nice job.
- Fulgham, what a joy to watch him and the game he had.  Don't hurry back Pimp and Ash.
- Wentz played much better than I thought.  One awful INT and one bad sack (just before the missed FG was on Wentz) and one pansy ass Todd Pinkston attempt at a sure TD by Hightower, from being in good shape at the end.
 -Even if Elliott makes that 57 yarder WAY to much time for Ben to dissect this defense.
 - Oh my God!  Jim Schwartz is a disaster.  Horrible game plan. Yes he has mostly shtein to work with, this team can't tackle for shtein, that was even more glaring the second time I watched it, but he's awful.
- Pittsburgh drafts well

How in the hell are Sydney Jones and Rasul Douglas playing well on their new teams?  Playing for Schwartz definitely didn't help those two.
