Jedi-Falcon Posted October 25, 2008 Share Posted October 25, 2008 This matchup is going to expose Asante. He was a good zone CB in the Patriots Defense, but there is no way in **** he can cover Roddy man-to-man without help. Roddy is going to get double-teamed all game and that should free up Jenkins and HD.Roddy may only catch 1 ball the enitre game, but the effect of his presence just being out there is going to open our Offense wide open for the other WRs to make plays.But unfortunately Ryan is going to get the jitter-bugs, and stink up the place the 1st half. It will be a replay of the Tampa game. Terrible 1st Half, then too-little-too-late in the 2nd Half.Turner will get about 45 yards. Norwood will see the ball about 3 times for 25 yards. Mularkey will abandon the Run Game pretty early and put everything on Ryan's shoulders. McNabb is going to have a field-day throwing against Foxworth and hitting Westbrook across the middle against Brooking.However -The Eagles are going to show blitz every down, but they wont do it. They are going to show blitz and drop back into coverage, which is going to really screw Ryan up at first. If we can get Turner to bust one early when they do this we might have a chance. That will force the Eagle Defense into a more predictable scheme to stop the Run.This going to be a weird game that might go either way to the extremes, or a close game decided by a Safety. The Falcons have a real shot at winning it, but the edge is in the Eagles favor. McNabb is too good, been around too long, to let a Secondary like ours beat him. The Eagles will score at least 34 points. Whether we win or lose will depend on if Ryan and our Offense can score more than that. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
