Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.

On the bright side, there's a youth thing happening for the Eagles:

Fulgham
Mailata
Herbig
Driscoll

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.

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.

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.

That stadium is a black hole for long FGs.

I was happy about Fulgham today. That’s about it.

But that game was winnable.

i thought true liberals werent watching the nfl....hmmm....

it was most certainly a winnable game. they had the ball at midfield with 5 minutes left and mcnabb, i mean wentz, wet his pants and didnt move the ball. decent chance BEN the comes back down and wins the game, but it was there for them.

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.

Realistically what could they get for Wentz?

A low 1?



Given his contract, having to give up a first rounder would be closer.

you aren’t getting a one for Wentz if he was willing to play for free

After the way Rivers played Sunday, and most of this season, I can see the Colts a knockin', by no means a #1 but lets make a deal!
