boohyah Posted December 3, 2007 Share Posted December 3, 2007 I should take solace in yesterday's win, after all we are in Chicago against a relatively strong D and we came from behind. It should be inspiring, The defense played well in general, guys like Michael Johnson and Kawika Mitchell played strong games, I like what Kevin Dockery is doing out there, even Butler is improving. Our defensive line did all they could, they kept giving the offense chances to win. Amazing to think that since Kiwi has got hurt you think we'd lose a little and suddenly up steps Fred Robbins. All this and Grossman was actually playing decent and Peterson at times was looking like the other Peterson. But the defense got the job done today. For all the shit that special teams have gotten in the past, they are a different animal right now. Feagles did exactly what he needed to do. Hester was a non factor and our special teams coverage was very good. What a great tackle by Chase Blackburn, a guy who I have my doubts about, but the guy plays hard when he plays. Too bad that the unit has to be soured by the fact that Tynes has to act like a fucking crybaby. 2 kicks out of bounds is ridiculous and watching him coming to the sidelines whining to Coughlin about the wind and Hester was nuts for a guy walking on eggshells as it is. Seriously, If Coughlin shitcanned his ass this week, I'd applaud. Coaching and offense go hand in hand this week. I like that even though he fumbled that the coaches kept giving Ward the ball because he was still making hay. But some of the situations they are giving the running backs the ball are questionable. Do you think that many teams will plan a defensive strategy against us in the future, that when we are 2nd/3rd and long, defend the draw play!!. You see, the way I look at it, you have guys who are supposed to do a certain job, throw the ball, catch the ball, run with the ball, block. If you have guys who have a job to do and they can't do it, you don't change the job type, you change the personnel. If Eli needs a wake up call, then you put Anthony Wright (puke) in for a series. If Shockey won't make the effort to break up the clear "pass to Urlacher", then bench his ass. If Plax can't run properly, then may be he shouldn t be out there on every snap. But this coaching staff changes the plays and those plays led us to be still down 16-7 when we should have been leading going into the 4th quarter with all the possession. I was looking for Eli to hopefully give everyone who criticized him this week the middle finger, but he didn't, and frankly he was a Toomer awesome catch away from getting fucked again this week.But dumbing down the playcalling to cover for him is something that shouldn't happen. I guess it's something to win when you don't play at your best, hopefully we'll step it up next week because Philly are there for the taking, they can't get it done with either Feeley or McNabb right now, and if it wasn't for Westbrook they'd suck altogether. Big safety and linebacker play needed next week. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
