Eagles Blog Week 2

Did anybody at all feel even remotely comfortable when the Chargers offense came onto the field with 1:55 remaining in a tie game? Because I didn't that's for damn sure.

Anybody feel comfortable with fucking Nick Foles running the offense on 2nd and goal? Me either.

The defense needs work, that's obvious to pretty much everyone. Cary Williams, the supposed calming veteran presence in the Eagles' trainwreck of a secondary, got flagged 3 times for pass interference calls in very important spots. The D-line only sacked Philip Rivers' whiny ass 1 time, and I'm surprised they even did that considering how little pressure they were able to apply. Basically get ready to see the defense from the 2nd half of the Redskins game, not the first half.

Our lord and savior Chip Kelly, though he is the smartest man on the planet, made a few questionable decisions that certainly did not help the Birds' cause today. Front and center of those is the decision to use his time-outs at the end of the game, giving the Chargers the opportunity to run more plays and give Novak an easier field goal. I'm racking my brain trying to come up with how that might have helped us but for the life of me can't figure out why he did that.

But, hey, 1-1 is good for a share of first in the NFC East, so there's that.
