No the ball shouldn’t have been thrown into double cover to Calvin. Those are the types of decisions that get you beat.

Cover-0 is the easiest blitz in football to see. Tim F’ng Tebow beat cover 0. Throwing the ball up for grabs is not what a QB of Matt’s caliber does. You get the ball quick into our best athletes’ hands and let them be football players... like what he did on 4th and 3 when we had to have it.

Thats what supposed to happen when you throw a cover-0 at an NFL offense which is the reason why it’s also the most rarely used blitz.

Pretty sure we'll have a game soon where Ryan is sharp where he hits those 2 TD passes, doesn't throw the picks, defense plays the way it did and we're talking a 40-20 game.

Actually, pretty sure we'll have several of those games this year.

 

Edit: That's what elite QBs do, they can play like #### first 3.5 quarters and make the big play to win the game. Peyton did that so many times.

The way I see it, you're no better than a Saints fan. Can't get much worse than that. 

So you’re mad because we didn’t blow the game like you kept saying we would.  Your karma ******** didn’t come true like you kept saying it would.  I’d say all of that is worse than what you are wishing for. And now I get to live rent free in your head.  ******* moron.  LOL. karma...lol

We need to have an honest discussion about Devonta Freeman. He isn't the best back on the team anymore and should not be getting the majority of snaps.

That is very possible I do not know yet. the first five or six plays he looked great he also had a great run on a shovel pass but then after that we didn't run the ball too much. which I thought Mike Mularkey would curve Dirk  pass happiness but it hasn't happened yet

I kinda feel like we should’ve blown them out.  That got way too uncomfortable for my old ***.

It just seemed that the refs kept it close too often - it was like 9 penalties against us to 2 against them at one point. 

Ryan's picks also helped them stay close but the turnovers were ultimately even as we got 2 picks against Wentz and the fumbled kickoff.

Ito Smith needs to be named starter this week? Freeman has lost his ability to make explosive plays and is noticeably slower! Smith is younger, more hungry, and gives our offense some ability to bust loose and create more mismatches!

I think they are looking forward to an excuse to put him on the IR or just anticipating it is going to happen, so they can make Ito the primary back and then use the Hill/Ollison pair as backups.

Yep. Even Turnover game. Wentz threw a couple bad ones just like Matt.

Can anybody tell me why the eagles didn't run to the outside?

Falcons shut the eagles run game down- no run longer than 5 yards, 2.3 YPC.

It's not really their game.

They are more inaide zone than outside stretch.

When they did try to bounce it outside the edge defenders were there

Yeah, was trying to figure out if the Falcons made effective adjustments from last week or not. I'm watching the game as a fan and tend to miss nuances. I rely on my falcon brethren here to keep me informed.
