Philly was held in check in the second half. As the season goes along, who wants to bet we get better while they fade?

Soon as Vick goes down, they are cooked. Add to that, that teams now have tape. Anybody remember how Spurrier lit it up at first? As soon as there was tape, the magic was gone.

Our defense did well but we need to tighten these missed tackles.

They held back a new style of offense in the 2nd half so I'm pleased for the most part.

Jordan Reed is gonna be a great one.

With RG3 not running as much, I'd like to see us having Helu or Thompson in the backfield with Morris. Something to split up the defense.

Already said this before, but I love seeing Griffin as an elusive pocket passer.

Another thing, when we had our own "hurry up" offense we did serious damage. I think that should be our 3rd or 4th quarter scheme.

I go back to the 50's & I agree.

Then you don't recall two years ago on Monday night against the Smeagols?

Joshua Morgan showed no sign of game clock awareness.

Two guys with minor break out nights: Hank and Reed. Both looked fine. We might be alright, but Green Bay might be too much next week. Robert looked better at times in the second half, but he's not ready yet. Bad for Morris. He needs the old RG3 as a threat or they'll be laying for him and we'll have no run game again.

Sorry... that was not close. See yupchagee's response.

hah. All I could think last night watching the Eagles celebrating was about Spurrier hanging all of those points on the 49ers with Wuerffel. We all thought he was about to reinvent football in the NFL!!!

I don't want to be sour grapes about it. Credit to the Eagles and Kelly for just completely taking it to us that first half. I actually bad for our defense. I'm sure that was exhausting AND embarrassing.

I'll be curious to see if that offense is sustainable or not. Its not just Vick they have to worry about. Playing 50+ snaps in a half, guys are eventually going to go down. Its not Oregon with 125 players on the roster.
