Eagles v. Giants, Sunday, September 30, 2012

Full Wolverine. Miss you, #20.

Stud of the week: Brian Dawkins. Duh. He came out of the tunnel Full Wolverine, and we were all yelling, “Put him in!” “Get him some pads!” “No, he doesn’t even need pads! Just get him a helmet!” 13 seasons with the Eagles, 16 seasons total. 26 career sacks. 28 career forced fumbles. 37 career interceptions. Next stop: Canton.

Also, LeSean McCoy had a really good game. Well, he had a good second half. But see, when you keep TRYING to run it throughout the game, it starts to work in the second half.  Andy, take notes.

Actually, everyone had a really good game. Including the coaching staff, who did an excellent job of game planning, and an even better job of in-game adjustments. And I have to assume that someone gave the team one hell of a halftime speech. BDawk perhaps? There was one bad series by the defense – you know the one, that horrible series mid-way through the 4th quarter where Cris Collinsworth basically commented that he’d NEVER seen the Eagles play such bad D – but other than that, really solid game all around. Well, other than the special teams who were short-bus special this week. Colt Anderson and Akeem Jordan, we miss you!

Of course, that final series about gave us all heart attacks. Pass interference on DRC: maybe. Maybe. Pass interference on Nnamdi. Whole lotta BS. Which even Al and Cris admitted. Thank you, Ramses Barden, for evening the score with that complete gangsta-level mugging of Nnamdi, putting your kicker out of his range. Of course, Big Red nearly blew it by trying to ice the kicker, but since Lawrence Tynes missed TWICE, I guess he was successfully iced. Still not a fan of the practice, though.

And did you notice? The Eagles committed not ONE SINGLE turnover. NOT ONE. Here’s the crazy thing. On the NFL Network’s Game Day Morning show, the commentators were all making their “Bold Predictions.” Not only did Michael Irvin pick the Eagles to win (alone of the entire team), but he also predicted that they’d have…no turnovers.

Spooky.

You know what’s even more spooky? Nola Chick did an interview with me for HLN TV last week. Not only did I predict that the Eagles would pull out the win, I also predicted that they’d win….19-17. I am not ******** you.
Spooooooky.

Then again, it is October.

So now what for the Eagles? Well, they’re facing the Steelers next week, and I guess we’ll take it one week at a time. Still 3-1 is a lot better than last year’s 1-4.

Get the rest of the recaps at Snarkin’ the NFL.
