Seems like a serious mismatch.
Go Eagles.

Didn't turn out to be near the mismatch I expected.

Jackson ultimately wasn't up to it, but he fared way better than anyone thought he would.

Truth be told, I think McNabb took more pressure than Jackson did, but he's a vet.

Donovan's adapted to playoff pressure. The Vikes are a QB away from superbowl contention. I, for one, hope they don't find a good one.

They might say they've already found one.

Me, I'm not so sure. Jackson's improved, but I'm not convinced he has the goods in the passing game to quarterback a playoff contender.

before the eagles went on the run they are on now, everyone expected mcnabb to be gone after the season. some people thought he would fit well in minnesota (brad childress connection)

honestly, if the eagles were gonna get rid of him, i would hope he went somewhere he could succeed and the vikings would be a great situation for him.

Brad has a good 1st half gameplan and Jackson executed well. They used a 3 step drop and got rid of the ball quickly with short passes. Nullifying the eagles d-line and blitzes. They attacked Samuel a lot who was playing 10 yards off the WRs every pass.

However, in the second half. The Eagles totally took away the short passing and the Vikings couldn't pass the ball well down the field. I also thought they abandoned the run way to early in the second half. Poor adjusting by Brad. Good adjustments by Reid.

I was kinda blown away that Reid didn't give Buckhalter another rushing attempt after busting of that big gain. Buck has been really good as of late and reid isn't giving him enough touches.

I expected Childress to have a good game plan given the familiarity.

If he'd had a more veteran QB, who knows what might have happened?

Jackson can't hit the deep ball for toffee and he didn't use his mobility enough last night.

He did have one, but he left him on the bench for god knows what reason.
