Where do I start on this one? That was one of the ugliest games I have seen in a long time. The o-line was awful and the game planning was atrocious. I am sorry to dog Vick (no pun intended) but how in the world do you hold on to the ball that long at the goal-line when there is just 6 seconds left in the half? It has to be a three step drop and the balls out. (Andy said that Mike held onto the ball to long there)
This is why I blame him for that play. Mike said after the game that he saw Kerry Rhodes up at the line. So you never bothered to check to see if he was blitzing? That one is on him, plus he almost got Celek killed a few times. Mike really is not the reason why the Eagles lost the game though.
The best part about this is that Reid started a QB controversy on Monday.
Andy tells media in day-after presser that Vick is still the starter, but “we’ll evaluate it as we go here.””
Awesome. Kevin Kolb and the Cards are now 3-0. That makes me feel so warm inside…
Who was “Tugging” all day..
Yes, I said that right. Kolb was very good on Sunday. There where reports prior to the game that Kolb was going through some “happy feet’ issues in the pocket. Well, he looked pretty comfortable to me. He got rid of the ball quick when he needed too and was able to avoid pressure a few times to make plays down the field. Kolb finished 17/24 for 222 yards and 2 TD’s. Kolb is sleeping well this week.
Hey, Juan, did you ever think of shadowing him? For the love of God, he did the same last year to the Eagles. Could you image if Fitzgerald had a Top notch QB throwing to him? Fitz ended up catching nine passes for 114 yards and a touchdown. Still don’t know how you have a mix up when Fitz is running down the middle of the field. I am talking to you Nnamdi and Coleman.
Who went “Limp” all day..
Dude, I get that you love throw the ball bro. But you go into this game without your starting center and you’re “BACKUP” LT out of the game. Plus, Vick has been a turnover machine this year. Andy being Andy, still decides to open up the game with 25 passing plays to just 5 running plays. I will never understand you Big Red..
The official stats had five sacks and 13 other hits allowed on Vick. Though I saw it on a couple of different sites that is was more than 20 times. All I know is that Vick was running for his life, though Brian Baldinger an NFL Network analyst, said that the film showed that the line was not that bad. That the Cards “D” was just that good. Well, OK then. Here are a couple of his quotes..
Several sacks were the result of outstanding coverage. The Cardinals had Vick’s receivers blanketed. The line gave Vick time, but he didn’t have anywhere to go with the ball. “The coverage was very stick
Without Jeremy Maclin in the lineup and with Brent Celek staying in to block on a number of plays, the Eagles ran a lot of two man routes with DeSean Jackson and Damaris Johnson. That made things easier for the Arizona secondary
