Good win against the Redskins. The Redskins did not look like a 3-7 team coming in to this game. What really urks me are two things. One, the Thrid Quarter WAS WASTED BY THE EAGLES OFFENSE. It was sad. Second, more injuries :(
Jackson left the game after he was hit on a catch late in the third quarter. The Eagles originally said Jackson suffered head and neck injuries.
"It wasn't quite like that one where (Westbrook) was knocked out like that. We'll just have to see how he does here. We'll do the test on him and evaluate him."
Our best WR just has to get hurt. Hopefully he checks out a-ok but it is easy to foresee him missing a week of action. What is very conserning is that we only have 3 active WR's now: Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant, and Reggie Brown....This would be a perfect tiem for the return of Kevin Curtis. Who knows, maybe Vick might be running a few slants and curls.
Brent is one of our emerging weapons and I think our second best (DeSean first!). He is very good in the passing game and decent in the run. And I am happy we got him long term. But I was peeved at him last week. He dropped 3 first downs and basically killed the third quarter for our offense. If you have a sprained thumb, instead of being tough and playing thru but killing our offense. I would rather have Alex Smith be in and actually get us the first. I like him, but if he cannot perform, take yourself out instead of hurting us. Hopefully he's back soon catching TD's. (Also the penalty in the endzone peeved me off too.)
Bunkley and Patterson are like our "Williams Wall of Minnesota." They give us a incredible inside presure. But late in the game Bunkley twisted his ankle. I am not sure how extensive it is but this is another major loss from a already frail defense.
Others already out
If all these guys were out for next week against ATL, do you feel confident winning. I say yes b/c two of their best offensive players are out (Tuner, Ryan)
