I watched the Dallas/Houston game all the way through, and had it on for a second time in the background as I tore up the moldy floor in our guest bedroom. Dallas was downright awful. I also caught the majority of the Giants game, and they too looked bad as the Ravens were simply too much for them on both sides of the ball. I paid less attention to the Redskins since their starting QB is out, although it seems they were better than our other rivals.

If you're unhappy with the Eagles' performance this preseason, here's a sampling of the reactions from the writers that cover our rivals that should make you feel a little better...


In Houston, Cowboys offense went from shaky to just terrible - Tim Cowlishaw

Tim Cowlishaw takes a breather from breaking Darrelle Revis stories to cover a couple teams in his own state.

Cowboys Dress Rehearsal a Flop; Lose to Texans 23-7 - Blogging the Boys

This was a poor display of professional football, and the team knows it. So bad, in fact, that there are suggestions the regulars may play in the final pre-season game against the Dolphins.

Texans leave Cowboys undressed in preseason rout - Clarence Hill

Said receiver Patrick Crayton, when asked if he was surprised: "You talking about the tail whipping we just took? Does it shock me we got our tails whipped like that? Yeah, like that, yeah. There was no fight back or anything. It was like an MMA fight. They put us in a submission hold. Pretty much cut off our oxygen slowly until we had to just tap out."


New York Giants defense, offense overmatched in loss to Baltimore Ravens despite Eli Manning start - Ralph Vacchiano

Instead what (Coughlin) saw Saturday night was a lethargic team that he admitted is still "a ways" from being ready. And the truth is that all the work the Giants need may take a lot more than 14 days.

Effort lacking in Giants' 24-10 preseason loss to Ravens - Mike Garofalo

Coughlin seemed frustrated by the offense, but the play of the defense was particularly disturbing, given the lingering memories of last year and the promising game against the Steelers one week prior. Saturday night, defensive coordinator Perry Fewell’s starting unit gave up 17 points in its one half of play and probably should have surrendered more.

New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin is as unhappy with Saturday's 24-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens as many of you are


After Further Review: Redskins 16, Jets 11 - Rich Tandler

The Washington Redskins passed the test in their third preseason game of 2010 as they rallied to beat the New York Jets by the odd score of 16-11 in the New Meadowlands Stadium.
