Our Philadelphia Eagles beat the Division rivals New York Giants, 36-21 on the road, then Tony Romo loses the game for the Dallas Cowboys against the Denver Broncos, and the Eagles sit atop the NFC East at 2-3. Odd, huh?
What was great to see this week is how the Eagles played well against a bad team. They did not play down to the Giants, instead, made a lot of good plays and more importantly did not let bad plays or execution set the tone thereafter. We saw players make some great plays, and our backup quarterback come in and lead the Eagles to a win.
Michael Vick pulled a hamstring running out of bounds on a play, and backup Nick Foles came in to lead the Offense. It appears that Vick will need to sit this week out against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as well. Foles will start and run the Offense for four full quarters, so the anticipation is high to see if he keeps his poise and executes as well as he did in New York. Either way, the media and some fans are talking about the “quarterback controversy” in Philly… but we see none. Vick is the team’s starter, and it is his job to lose.
Overall what we like to see is the Eagles improve as a team and individually week to week, as the players adjust to their positions, the schemes, and their weaknesses. The last of the long road trip ends in Tampa Bay, and it is not an easy game by any means. We will see a lot in this Eagles team, and how they play and are coached on Sunday.
There is a time for everything, and now is the time to reach out to us…
