It's gonna take a miracle now for the Eagles to get to the post-season in 2012.. and certainly nothing short of a 7-0 run.
But miracles do happen. So I won't give my surrender speech just yet...
Mike Vick got knocked out of the game with double vision and concussion symptoms. Nick Foles entered the game as a rookie QB. "Shaggy" almost pulled it off...but in the end, he became a victim of unchecked pass-rush pressure, too... And the hay was put into the Cowboys' barn, not Philly's...
The Eagles fell apart in the second half against Dallas on Sunday.
The Cowboys scored three touchdowns -- one each on offense, special teams and defense -- in a span of 2 minutes, 35 seconds to earn a 38-23 victory over the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick left the game in the first half and was replaced by rookie Nick Foles.
The Eagles have now lost five straight for the first time during coach Andy Reid's 14 season. They last lost five in a row to open the 1998 season in coach Ray Rhodes' final year.
The Eagles led 17-10 when Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo started the rally with a 30-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Dez Bryant on the final play of the third quarter. Dwayne Harris next scored on a 78-yard punt return, and cornerback Brandon Carr returned a tipped interception of Foles for 47 yards and a TD.
Foles replaced Vick in the second quarter after Vick suffered his concussion. Foles completed 22-of-32 passes for 218 yards with one TD and one interception.
The Eagles cut the gap to 31-23 on fullback Stanley Havili's 1-yard TD with 1:55 to go, but Alex Henery missed his first extra point in two years.
On the next possession, Foles fumbled on a sack by Cowboys defensive tackle Anthony Spencer, and defensive tackle Jason Hatcher recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown.
And that was the ball game...
I hate Ben Burger so much............I just look at his face, and I want to bash head wiff shovel.
Having said that.......it's nice watching the QB position being played the way he plays it.
It's a shame he's 100% douche.........cuz if he wasn't, he'd be one of the faces of the League. Plays the game very smart. As does the entire Pitt team. They just don't beat themselfs.
The Chieves haven't had a lead all year in regulation,....at any point in any game.
That's quite a feet.
Good thing bout Scott coming aboard he don't need to learn Mudd's system. The only thing would tweaks he put in for the slackers already here.
@AbeLinc64 as if this move matters? grasp at straws if it makes ya happy... I'd rather see a high draft pick for the new regime to build upon.
ATV - That comedy of errors yesterday from the OL (B/D can't even mention their names yet) something needed to be done. An old Army recruiting slogan fits here "Be all you can be" neither have done that this year.
@AbeLinc64 oh I agree... just don't see it being a season saving move... tew little tew late IMO
OK...paperwork done, ate my damned rabbit food. Time for a quick dip in the pool.
Then - Chucky time!
Gonna try to pay attention to him tonight to see if and how he speaks of our Birds.
