Would love to see an alley oop to Gibson.

That pick was clearly Weeden's fault. He hit Little right in the hands. Worst place to throw it to Little.

Shurmur gets the ball back with 1:30 left... and of course, decides to run out the clock. And Reid knows this and will be a dick to call the timeouts...

Weeden was sacked 34 times in his three years as starter. He could just stand back there and throw with nobody bothering him. NFL life ain't the same. Being pressured doesn't help.

Fucking Marecic and Little sure not helping.

Eagles still stacking the line an daring to throw just like teams did with Colt. They're gonna have to pass out of it, and they're gonna have to be a lot more creative in their play calling. I've called almost every run so far.

It looks like the Eagles know exactly were everything is going before the ball is snapped.

Most of the time TR gets the handoff and runs right into a giant blob of football players. I'm not sure if this is a problem of play calling or run blocking.

No, I am not. But as we have had very little luck in running up the middle for the past 20 or so years.

Jim Brown is ancient history and even the teams of the mid 80's are 30 yrs ago. What's working today? Cuz it sure as hell isn't "up the middle."

And this is just my opinion, it doesn't mean a damn thing.

You HAVE to get a TD now. Throw to a TE maybe. Is Jordan Cameron even in the game? Benjamin on the outside isn't really working.
