The play calling was horseshit.....We are playing against a smaller, quicker front 7 that's blitzing every down and we know it......RUN THE FUCKING FOOTBALL DOWN THEIR THROATS !!!


We abandoned the run way too early...What happened to being patient with the running game?.....What happened to winning through attrition?...

This was a game that punting and field position played a big part in the outcome...As did multiple sacks and pre-snap penalties......

We would have been better off with 2 yard Parker runs and a punt.....

The OLine sucked yesterday. To try to pin anything on FWP is just insanity. He was dodging guys as much as Ben was when he got a handoff. Hell, even one time Ben almost handed it off to a D-lineman of Philly before Parker. How on earth can you say TWP? Have to think with that much going on in the backfield, it would be difficult at best to find a hole.

Hope the offense is ready for a blitzfest the rest of the season. There is your recipe for success against the Steelers.

The Steelers O-line was to Eagles defenders, what Terri Schiavo was to balloons.

The Eagles just had the better scheme.  Marvel can't hold the edge, and Bunkley simply overpowered Hartwig.  Not to mention, they threw more guys than our OL could pick up.  JMO, but when it's that ugly up front, BA needs to make the adjustment.  There's going to be something out in the flats, or short routes where we can pass for 5 yards on a mismatch, but I saw no evidence of that.

And we used the no huddle exactly zero times.  ZERO.

Wouldn't that seem to be an effective option to back down the blitz?  Huh?

We were screaming about that the entire game.
I don't know if Arians is just a slow learner, or completely inept...

Yeah, that's 3 things I certainly agree with - should have run MUCH more, don't blame it on Parker and there was ZERO no huddle.  It's like Arians wanted to make sure Philly had plenty of time to bring in fresh blitzers.  And really, Philly didn't even need to blitz to shut it down - they knew where Ben would be for the next 3-5 seconds following a snap.  WTFingF?

The OL better bring 2x4s next week.

Don't you mean .35 seconds? How often did Ben actually have 3 seconds?

True dat, double true.  Arians was calling plays that would take up to 10 times longer to develop than there was time.  He somehow thought Ben, Willie and the Philly front 8 could somehow occupy the same space at the same time.

Somebody get that man a physics book, stat!  This has to be a terrible misunderstanding.

Dallas allowed 0 sacks.  They dumped off to RBs and TEs 14 times.

St. Lou dumped it off 8 times.

We dumped off 4 times.  Every time the ball went to Miller, it was a nice gainer.  So let's not do that, right?

Aside from the pass to RM that was thrown a bit outside, did we throw AT ALL to the RBs?  No.

I'm sorry, Arians is really chafing my balls.
