  • Chip Kelly’s high-octane offense really can work in the NFL – Well, it sure looked exciting and they did win 33-27, but 77 plays and 443 yards is hardly revolutionary. But keep in mind, two turnovers kept the Redskins off the field for the first six minutes of the games, in which they gained 152 yards. And after two more quick turnovers by the Redskins, the Eagles had run 32 plays for 169 yards by the end of the first quarter. That’s flukey. And in the second half they ran just 24 plays for 121 yards, proving that you can run an offense as fast as you want, but you still have to run it well.

    Couldn't have said it better myself, and Vick will not be able to stay healthy because he just refuses to slide when he runs. You just know someone is gonna line him up and take him out hard.
  • On the other hand I'm glad Eli doesn't get hurt, because even our porous defense can pick that bum off.
  • I agree with you G.R. Vick will be hurt soon. The Egrets are letting up thirty points a game but yet nobody talks about that. Nobody can ever count your Giants out. Four Superbowls and a two time MVP at the helm. The G-men always play their best football down the stretch. They will be there again with America's team at the end of the season. Take care bro.
  • I hope so, Eli needs to stop with the INT's and Wilson needs to start running with authority. Ain't that a shame about your favorite Barker...Sniff! Sniff! I am so upset...it looks like they tossed her majesty, Granny R. Clemente de Fartsmella...I am so upset over this I can't even find...sniff! Sniff!...the...sniff!! Sniff!...words to describe the....sniff!!! Sniiiifffffle!!!! enormity of my upsetedness....This is truly a sad day for the Yard. I just can't find the wor....Oh Hell, I sure as hell can find the words, make that word....NOT!!!! ;-)
