Part of this might be that of all the games to choose to be my first Eagle's game, it had to be this one.... (include some "Get Em" throughout)
That was one of the most awful football performances I've ever watched. I'm at a loss to think of a more pathetic showing by our offense in the past few years. For me, the game was so bad that in the end I was forced to reassess my emotional level of commitment to the Eagles.
First the play calling, once again we didn't run the entire first half. Start of the second, we come out running all over them and end up with some points on the board, but why why why should it ever take an entire half of a game to start the run game.
Vick. He has regressed the past year and a half, and I have lost all hope of envisioning him leading us to anything big. He holds on to the ball far too long, he's not as accurate as we all want to believe he is, and he will never be a good pocket passer. The 2 wins we have rest solely on the defense, and two decent 4th quarter drives. I can't overlook the other three quarters of crap play by Vick no matter if he saves us in the final drive.
I am now officially on the Foles bandwagon.
