  • What went well in the game:

    1) Wilson. If he can return punts like that, we have some serious gold on our hands. The fact that in all his punt returns he didn't fumble once shows that he has been working on his fumbleitis...

    2) Prince. Shut down Maclin and kept him to 1 catch for something like 10 yards the whole game. Essentially flawless... my only question is why wasn't he moved over to jackson?

    3) Blackburn. Definitely played like he wanted to be there. Made some nice tackles in the running game.

    4) Stevie. We need to find a way to work this guy in more often (that don't involve KP getting injured). I hope to see some 3 safety sets soon.

    5) JPP. As always, holding up our entire defensive line.

    6) Weatherford (and the punt coverage unit). I don't think philly had good field position at all that entire game.

    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

    It's been awhile, but I think we get a run back or 2 on kickoffs this year, especially if they get the coverage and Wilson runs that hard everytime. Kid has some insane speed!

      7) Hixon, 114 yards receiving. Not bad for a guy with 2 ACL's in his medical history...

        8) Bennett was a bit of an unsung hero... he was kept in to block most of the time, but he did well in pass protection. The few times he went out for a reception, he had an incredible catch that Beatty held on, that INT in the endzone should have never been thrown in his direction, and one other time that I saw where he wasn't targeted...

            Hixon is not Nicks or Cruz, but when one of them is missing, he's great to have around. It seems Gilbride correctly selected Hixon as the # 3 at the end of pre-season.

            And Bennett also get my vote.

              I just wanted to post what I DID like about the game because now I have *******s on this board saying I'm "not a real fan" for calling Barden terrible or saying Eli, TC, and Gilbride all made knuckleheaded decisions...

                  No one is saying you're not a real fan, and if they are, don't pay attention to him. But have an open-mind before you start spewing out BS about Barden being bad.

                  You're just mad about the PI, that's why you had to make the post about Barden.

                  No offense, I'm not a mind-reader, but it's kind of obvious.

                    I think BLackburn has the sense to play well, but he just seems slow out there. I think if Rivers had been able to play he would have made a big difference.

                      He had a great game. Him and Rivers being rotated might be real good for this team. He is slow though.

                        Barden gave us the only chance we had to win that game, period.............
                        Dumbest strategy play I've seen from our O in quite some time.
                        Throw it out to the flat and get out of bounds, maybe pick up a couple

                          Prince. Our secondary needs this type of play from him going forward but for Gods sake. Can there be at lease one game where he doesn't limp off?

                          Wilson: We need to get this dude involved in the run game ASAP. I DONT CARE IF HE FUMBLED AND DROPPED A SHUFFLE PASS. WE NEED TO UTILIZE HIS SPEED AND IT WILL OPEN EVERYTHING UP (Caps wasn't on I just pissed). This dude gets out to the 35 on every kickoff return for goodness sake and our running game is average to below average.

                          FYI. I agree with Toads list.

                            I've been calling him terrible for years. Now I feel like I ate all that crow for NOTHING...

                              Can there be at least one game where any DB doesn't limp off? Game 1 had Hosley and Coe go down, Game 3 had Rolle suffer the effects of camera fu, etc...

                              Wilson: We need to get this dude involved in the run game ASAP. I DONT CARE IF HE FUMBLED AND DROPPED A SHUFFLE PASS.

                              I think today was a test for Wilson. TC was letting him loose in the return game to see if he could run without fumbling. I expect to start seeing more of him in the run game moving forward because he passed his fumble test with flying colors. That said, I'd be happy with him being a dedicated return man this year too... man's got wheels for sure, and he's a lot better in open space than up the middle, which is more conducive to the return game than the running game...
