  • This game, and really playoff run by the Eagles, should put any questions to rest as to the extent that a scheme/game plan can enhance a QB's play.

    The Eagles play-calling was masterful throughout the playoffs to help scheme up easy throws for Foles, keep defenses off balance, and manufacture big plays. Foles made some great plays, sure, but I saw more creativity within a single Eagles drive than I've seen out of our offense all god damned season.

    Dak isn't perfect but I damn sure wouldn't pass any sort of final judgment on him until I saw him play under a different, more competent staff.

      Again, @jsmith6919, I don't agree with this, but this is how the NFL is defining it.
      And I still say Goodell and his failed comedian head of officiating Blandino are trolling us all to see how much bs we will accept

        Feh. We made the right move. Two years ago, Doug Pederson was not a clear upgrade. Now he is a SB champion and clear upgrade, so let's go get him!!!

        But, wait, if Eagles miss playoffs next couple years so he gets fired and is actually available, he'd no longer be a clear upgrade.

          To take it a step further, listening to Blandino trying to justify that Golden Tate had sufficiently established that he was a runner is comically infuriating.

          Call Dez Bryant no catch? Fine. I don't agree with it, but I understand the legislation behind it.

          But for Golden Tate to have demonstrated enough to show clear possession and OVERTURN an INT called on the field? Blandino asks if Tate, after demonstrating possession, had enough time to transition to a runner. His answer is yes with Tate almost having a third step down with possession.



          Okay, so almost getting a third foot down constitutes sufficient time to demonstrate transition to a runner. I've seen plenty of calls to the contrary. Got it. Too bad it flies in the face of essentially every other call I've seen in the last 10 years since all this bullshit started.

          • 878 passing yards. Foles 373 and Brady 505.

            Something about how this represents today's game doesn't sit well with me.

            Oh well. NFL did what they had to do to make sure sorority chicks and fantasy geeks were thrilled with the NFL so they can salvage ratings.

                Both Dez and Calvin had steps and a knee down and then the "drop". Im with Jsmith on this one as the only reason I was upset was because of inconsistency. It really shouldnt be that hard.

                My opinion on those... all three were catches.

                  Foles would suck here.

                  They said during the broadcast that after Foles took over and struggled at the end of the year, that Pederson and Reich spent the bye week looking at Foles from the 2013 season, and implemented a lot of what he did well that year with Chip Kelly into their offense.

                  Does anyone really think stubborn uncreative Garrett would revamp his offense? Hell no.

                  We’d be mocking Foles like we did Weeden, Cassell, Moore and everyone else.

                      Lol. That was actually tame for him.

                        Yeah, that offensive game plan, those plays, were something to behold. You don't have to do it that way of course - you can ground meat and eat clock and limit possessions with a running game, but to go into a Super Bowl with Ajayi and Blount and Clement vs. Foles and the underachieving Eagles WRs and opt for the passing game AND make it work?

                        Impressive.

                              Like I said, I can dream.

                              It isnít as though who any of us roots for really makes a difference anyways.

                              I think he cares. Just not enough to say, go out and drive a brink's truck full of money to Howie Roseman's door, or some other proven personnel guy.

                              Though I guess I shouldn't imply it's about money, cause it's not.

                              To rephrase..... just not enough that he is willing to let anyone else get credit for building a winner.

                                I think we tried to get Foles and he turned us down for KC.
