• Episode #112 crew: John Barchard, Sean Brace (@Sean_Brace)

• 00:01 - Introductions

• 3:00 - Why didn't Chip Kelly go for it on fourth down? Really bad decision.

• 7:00 - You have to give credit to Atlanta for being better than expected.

• 11:30 - Way too many penalties, especially on the offensive line.

• 12:50 - Byron Maxwell struggled and Bill Davis didn't give him any help. Not a good first impression.

• 14:00 - Where was the pass rush?

• 17:20 - What's going on with the Sam Bradford ankle injury? Doesn't seem to be a major issue, but Bradford's health is always a concern.

• 21:00 - Were the Eagles smelling themselves at all?

• 25:00 - The Eagles' nickel package features Chris Maragos at safety and that's a concern. He played 36 snaps.

• 29:40 - Focusing on some positives: Sam Bradford looked better than Chip Kelly's past quarterbacks in the second half.

• 31:30 - Zach Ertz is a beast. Give him credit for being tough and returning from injury.

• 32:39: Miles Austin’s drop

• 33:41: The penalties absolutely killed the momentum and the rhythm.

• 35:00: Was Bradford missing guys downfield?

• 37:11: Deciding plays of the game: Jason Kelce’s holding call on the screen pass, Ryan Mathews tripping...

• 39:15: The offensive guard play was bad.

• 41:54: The Eagles are still good and not bad.

• 43:40: Don’t throw Bradford under the bus, that’s ridiculous.

• 45:00: We’re on to Dallas, and it’s a huge week.

• 47:50: We realize you have a choice in podcast and we thank you for choosing ours.
