Re: Philly here we come!

Weather could be a huge factor for both teams. All things being equal though, we should be able to handle the Eagles. Who Dat!!

Re: Philly here we come!

Philly will be an interesting game.

We must have answers for DeSean Jackson and Cooper. Period
Their offense is potent both on the ground and the air. Nick Foles is no joke and is leading the league in QBR, he doesn't throw a lot but when he does he makes them count.

If you think Russell Wilson is good, Nick Foles is statistically better and his line gives him a lot better protection. Foles has 27 TDs and 2 INTs.

Defensively they are 10th against the run so do not expect much ground game from us.....

Their pass defense is abysmal.
32nd yards allowed
Give up 23.9 YPG in the air
20th in the league in sacks, Trent Cole is their sack leader with 8
They are in the top 8 for INTs
They are opportunistic.. think 2009 Saints defense.

The core of their Defense is their LB corps, and this team is +12 in the turn over ratio.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Not overly impressed with Foles however that #95 DE they have (can't recall his name) ... he is a guy we will have to contain.

Re: Philly here we come!

With Foles at QB they act like an option style team but in reality Folds don't run well, they play an illusion run, although he is accurate at passing. They run misdirection plays and screens as well as any team out there. Their D can be taken advantage of often, they may rank#8 against the run but can be run on 4-6 yrds. at a time often, so that stat is misleading. Contain McCoy and pressre Folds and they will fall.

There is the catch... You try and pressure Foles and they screen. Containing McCoy is easier said than done... He averages 100 yards/game and is the league rushing leader by +341 yards.

All at a time when Vaccaro is out.

We can get it done but it is easier said than done.

Re: Philly here we come!

I thought it was funny how we pretty much owned Revis yesterday. Revis Island was flooded by a tsunami whose name is Brees.

Meachem made Revis look really silly. Ha ha ha ha ha!
