Chip Kelly looked overmatched last night. His players didn’t execute, his offensive line didn’t block particularly well, and Michael Vick never looked in control… almost like he was speeding down a highway in a McLaren trying to read street signs.
That swinging gate play was stupid. There’s no strategical reason to go for two when the score is 10-6 in the first quarter. I don’t even care about the formation– it’s just dumb to go for two there. There’s taking risks and then there’s just I’m drunk and been playing Madden for hours so fuck it.
I love Chip, but the Eagles looked like they were colossally unprepared for that game. I never got that feeling with Reid. I got the feeling Reid didn’t know what the fuck he was doing… but I never got the feeling that the team was not prepared. Just sloppy and disjointed last night.
Anyway, I’m tired and can’t write anymore. Here’s some shit from last night:
Marcus Vick, everyone
If only… he had a sports car:
First quarter. 10-6. Why?
What the hell was with that stupid couchgating thing KFC was pushing? Was there no one who said, “Hey, you know guys… this is really corny and we probably shouldn’t put it on TV”?
McCoy’s ankle injury: “Eagles calling it nothing more than a right leg.”
Phillies at the game
Darin Ruf and Cody Asche under the tutelage of Larry Andersen? This doesn’t end well… or it ends really well.
Bad look Mike Mayock on what they call a “bad look” in West Philly: “In West Philly, they call it a BL.” No they don’t.
But Mike Mayock is still my new favorite person, because of this.
Cameraman holds his ground nicely here
The McNabb Era summed up in one Tweet
I actually had to look up to check and see if I was watching a Buffalo Wild Wings commercial when the Eagles were called for a false start in the fourth quarter: “False start, everybody but the center.”
VICK NEEDS TO STOP HITTING IT.
Reid knew this was coming:
BOW CHIKA WOW WOW. I’m hot right now.
Howard Eskin in his usual position
The tomato squirts: “14 years is 14 years. That’s a long time, especially for a chubby old guy.” Especially for a desperate fan base.
