Winning on OffenseAs previously stated, Tampa has tons of talent all over their defense but it is not a perfect unit. First of all, the Eagles are to need to stretch the field both ways against Tampa Bay. Trying to win with the receivers playing a more intermediate game is playing to Tampa's strengths and it will give the Eagles a big headache. In order to stretch the field,...
Lead On, Chip
Tonight in Jacksonville, the Eagles turned the ball over and fell behind early. They made mistakes in special teams and the running game, with promising youngsters Damaris Johnson and Bryce Brown having killer fumbles. The game was on the road, in muggy conditions, and after a perfect punt, they were 99 yards away from paydirt and a win, with their scrubs in. Who cares...

I was in attendance and, as an Eagles fan, I have to say it was the hardest game I have had to watch in recent memory. Classic game by the Eagles, playing down to the underdogs, like they always do.
