    You're right. We don't laugh after wins. We end up criticizing our own guys or complaining about something irrelevant. That's how we enjoy a victory.

    All good here health wise guys. Only have some fallen trees and missing a part of my backyard fence, if anyone has seen it. But most importantly, family is safe, just checked on my folks and sister, and they are all fine as well. However, we were extremely lucky. Parts of my area are completely destroyed/just gone. Some parts do look apocalyptic. It’s a very strange feeling to wake up to low flying search and rescue helicopters flying by every few mins. I also wasn’t expecting abandoned/partially destroyed boats to be blocking coastal roads. Fort Myers Beach looks like a nuke was dropped on it. Buildings/restaurants just completely leveled. Pier destroyed. If anyone is familiar with the Times Square area, it is all completely just gone. People are still being rescued off Sanibel/Captiva by boat because the causeway was destroyed from storm surge and people can’t get on or off. I saw some tagging me with predictions. It’s fine, but if anyone wants to take over recording them, be my guest. I don’t have power, internet or even safe running water at the moment and don’t know when it’s coming back, so I don’t know when I’ll be able to get to them. I can only post this because I found a parking lot that has two bars of service.

    Thought I would stop by and say hello to my old friends/blog mates. I hope all is well with you all. I can't believe what I'm seeing from Hurts so far this year. His passing is vastly improved and he doesn't seem to want to take off all the time now. Maybe just maybe I may have been wrong in my assessment of him. Lurie however is still a clown. Anyhow hope you're all doing great I'll check back from time to time. God bless you all!

    It was absolutely brutal out there today. One of the worst weather days I've ever experienced. The combination of wind and rain was unbearable. There was no chance of staying dry, and once you were wet, it felt about twenty or thirty degrees colder than what you'd normally feel. I doubt people are complaining too much, but if you are, you're a fool. I'm sure the conditions were a lot worse than folks watching at home could really grasp. That's one of those games where you just want to walk out with a win, to hell with how pretty it might look.

    I might need some work on this, but I'm going to give it a try. I'm sure a lot of people are happy about today's game, but I'm not one of them. I'm furious about everything. Right now we're 3-0 but we should really be a lot better than that. Let me elaborate on all the things that ticked me off about today's game. These go to eleven. 1) Britain Covey fumbling a punt and looking like a doofus returning the ball. I'm sure anyone else could do better. 2) The offensive performance in the second half was abysmal. If we had spent more time in training camp practicing, we probably would have done better. Likewise if we weren't taking extra days off during the season. 3) The clown show at the end of the first half. We wasted too much time before calling a timeout and then we run three stupid plays and are forced to hurry a fourth down throw. We're just lucky it worked. 4) How come we're not getting any contributions from Quez Watkins? Something has to be done about that. Maybe we should hire a new wide receiver coach or something. 5) Our running game sucked. I'm not sure if this was the fault of the running backs or the offensive line. Probably both suck. We should probably activate Trey Sermons for the next game and let him carry the ball. He can't be any worse. 6) Why on earth are we risking DeVonta Smith to return punts? We should probably fire the special teams coach after than blunder. 7) Why did we put in Sua Opeta at left guard late in the game instead of Cam Jurgens? We have to give Jurgens some experience at guard. If not, this could be a completely wasted year for him, which would be proof positive that he was another boneheaded pick by Howie. 8) Speaking of boneheaded picks by Howie, how come we never see Nakobe Dean do anything? I saw people in the stands wearing 17 jerseys and yet Dean doesn't even play. What's up with THAT?!! 9) Speaking of jerseys, Nick Sirianni looks like a clown wearing former players jerseys. And for initiating a scheme with players photos on t-shirts after they make interceptions. Can he look any more dorky than that? I remember when coaches in the olden days used to wear suits and hats. Remember Tom Landry? Sirianni should try to do that. 10) Where is Milton Williams? I never see him making any plays. 11) Jalen Hurts didn't run for a lot of yards and didn't score any touchdowns. If we get into the postseason when the weather gets colder and it's harder to pass the ball, we're going to need for him to run more effectively than he did today.

    I spent about four minutes looking up DeSean Jackson's punt return stats starting in 2011, the year after his famous return. Since then, over a span of eleven seasons, he has returned 41 punts for 203 yards and zero touchdowns. That's less than five yards a return. It comes out to about 4.95 yards per return. It's pretty bad. Given his age now, I'd expect it to be even worse. So basically suggesting that he would be the ideal punt returner for the Eagles going forward is pretty idiotic.

    The all-22 is up. I thought the OL played only so-so, by their standards. Both Lane and Mailata gave up inside pressures, as did Seumalo. Dickerson definitely was downfield on those two calls. Kelce was on a couple but wasn't called, one of them being the inside screen to Gainwell that turned into an INT. The DL was terrific. They started a number of series in the 4i and completely stoned the Vikings' running game. Cox, Hargrave, and Williams all had several pressures, as did Reddick. Davis had some nice plays that won't show up in the stat sheet but isolated teammates as he absorbed double-teams. Remember how teams would kill us with underneath stuff last year? Faster LBs and DBs are taking that away and the DL is doing a good job of pressuring straight up the middle. Cousins was throwing off his back foot all night. It's still early, though, but I'm getting excited.

    I want to say a few things about Hurts last night... 1. I have been radically anti Hurts from day 1. I hate running QBs. I hate the notion of tolerating a running QB who is a mediocre passer. It doesn't work. Never has, never will. I will nitpick and bash every single game in which our offense scores 41 points while Hurts runs for 130 yards with 2 running TDs while passing at a 55% clip on high school level dump offs. Those performances enrage me. I can't even enjoy the wins and all I do is look to the horizon for a new QB. 2. Last night was not one of those performances. He looked more like Drew Brees than Lamar Jackson. The running was entertaining, but it was mere window dressing over the real substance of the performance, which was passing. He made the right reads, pulled the right levers in the right amount of time, threw with touch, and moved the ball effortlessly with his arm. It was fun to watch, enjoyable to think about his future, and probably the best Eagle QB performance since Foles in 52. I can get behind a QB that plays like this. That "just win" crap when Hurts is in a caretaker RB offense makes my blood boil...but last night, he did a lot more than just win. 3. Was that sustainable? Can he build on that? Can that be the real Hurts instead of the crude, reluctant passer who deserves to be called a running back? Well, now I'm willing to wait a bit to find out (I don't really like the 2023 QB class, for what it's worth). I've gone from radically anti-Hurts to curiously sitting right in the middle of the fence. 4. The arm strength does bother me. Forget Allen/Mahomes...Hurts is absolutely in a below-average category for arm strength amongst NFL starters. Rapid, perfect reads and a compact release can overcome that, but it is noticeable that he can't paste the ball onto a target on a bang-bang play. 5. Aside from the vastly improved passing performance last night, he also did a much better job avoiding hits when he did run.

    Wow the Blog really went off the rails a bit last night. Bit of a long post coming. Here's the thing, many of us offer valid criticisms of Hurts. We beat it into the ground, because that's the biggest issue on our favorite team, and the Blog is where we discuss said things. Some push back and say "We know the issues, why rehash them over and over"....well....it's a discussion board. And specifically in the off season, there's a lot of nothingness going on, so naturally the conversation will wind it's way back to Hurts. Now, the issue with Hurts that I have, is last year, he couldn't beat a good team. Would pad his stats against them in garbage time so he looked better than he really was (and his stats aren't really that great). We were told all offseason, that he was the hardest working guy in the league, he's out working with a QB guru, fixing his mechanics, etc. Then we get into training camp, and the reports are out there that he's running in 7v7 and 11v11 drills. Where nobody can hit him, and thus they become useless reps. Add into that the limited reps and practice that this organization has decided to go with, and frustration starts to build. Game 1 of the season arrives, and Hurts beats up on a bad team, again. But he does so by running the ball 17 (16, whatever) times. And you have people nitpicking through the plays to justify it. By this point, I wanted to see him use his athleticism to avoid the rush, but keep looking downfield and throw the ball. He just isn't capable of that. I don't know if he's selfish (as he claimed he likes to "get freaky") or if he's just aware of his limitations (throwing the ball). But it's a problem. It worked against a bad team, just like last year. And, because we've seen no indication of any improvement in his mentality towards the position, I think we can predict with accuracy how this season is going to go. Likely, we win the division, and get bounced in the playoffs when we play a good defense. It all feels like a giant waste of time to get invested with this guy, because he's not taking us where we want to go. And as a fan, I'm f'in frustrated with it. I'm frustrated with the coaches for not holding him accountable (like Vrabel did in Tenn with Willis in the preseason), I'm frustrated for the other players (like Kelce, who's likely in his last year), I'm frustrated that we have ongoing debates and people still saying, we have to wait and see. There's nothing we've seen to date to show that Hurts has changed. We have a fantastic running game, led by a great o-line. We have great receiving threats across the board. Everything is held back by the guy under centre. And it's frustrating as hell. So we discuss it in here till we're blue in the face. Discussing it in here....you have a segment of posters who unabashedly call you racist for raising these concerns about him. And there's no repercussions. They are allowed to openly and repeatedly call me a racist without any pushback. And mods here have given out warnings and suspensions for far less. There's three posters in particular that jump hard on the "you must be racist if you don't like Hurts" bandwagon, and frankly, it's disgusting and completely derails any semblance of conversation. The Strong thing was borne out of this, as well as one posters inability to offer any criticism of Hurts at all. I literally asked him if Hurts shared any responsibility in running 17 goddamn times (thanks @bpac55 for pointing out that's more carries than any RB has had in the last 2 years) and he blamed everybody else but Hurts. So Strong was given over the top praise to the point of ridiculousness. That poster deserved the disingenuousness of it all, because it was a pure reflection of him. That some posters are so self righteous to continue to think it's comparable to the racist allegations that poster still makes to this day with no consequence is laughable frankly. We all want the team to do well. But until Hurts shows that he's more willing to be a passer than a me-first runner, I have no expectation that we are going anywhere, and my frustration will remain. The defense is a completely separate issue, and it also needs to be fixed, but this is an offensive league, and the biggest problem on this team still is Hurts.

    Loved this from DeVonta. Very unselfish group of receivers.

    Week 2 and all, but this thread is ranked up there with other threads. Can it be stopped? I don't think so.

    Fun fact, Doug Pederson coached teams started the last three seasons against Washington. Each time Washington had a different team name.
