Eagles 31, Jaguars 24, Saturday, August 24, 2013 I’m not going to do a full game recap since it took so long for the game to broadcast – and me to have time to watch it – here in DC. For a detailed review, check out Iggles Blitz. For a more brief review, check out Bleeding Green Nation. Imaginary post-pick dialogue: "Srsly, Mike. WTF?" Observation One: Tommy Lawlor says not to panic, and I respect Tommy, but the biggest thing I took away from the game was, “Bad Mike is back ALREADY?” Actually, of course, it’s not Bad Mike – it’s Inconsistent Mike Who Occasionally Makes Head-Smackingly Bad Decisions (Dude, why are you trying to throw the ball away WHILE JUMPING?!?!), which is, in some ways, worse. If he was just Bad Mike, the Chipster could just be all, “Whoops! First time head coaching in the pros here. I *meant* to say Nick Foles is the Philadelphia Eagles’ starting quarterback for the 2013 season. My bad.” I’m not panicking, Tommy. Really. Deep breaths. Observation Two: I need to get to work on my annual preseason playoff predictions post, and I have NO idea what to say about the NFC East. I don’t think RGIII is 100%, and I think there’s a better than even chance Shanny throws away the ‘Skins future getting him back on the field too quick, the preseason has not been kind to the Giants from an injury perspective, the Cowboys…no. Just no. And the Eagles are not going to be good this year. Maybe in the future, but not now. It’s a puzzlement.
