Anyone else notice a couple of things in this current Skins vs Eagles game?

Look at the confusion they don't know who to cover

It's like one of those "what's wrong with this picture?" in Highlights kid magazines at the dr. office...

 

Isn't that far lineman supposed to be down for 5 total?

Derp, you're right.  Just like our fake play with all the linemen standing lol.  Too early.  Brain not working.

Meh, people have short memories....Jim Zorn (previous Skins HC) ran some college plays as well. They failed miserably and he was crucified. Same ol story, praise if you win. Luckily Foles can run this offense as well, cause Vick is not going to make it through the season.

 

on a different note: was there a play where the entire eagle oline performed a dive/cut block (play didn't work) but with all this talk about injuries, if I were a dlineman I be pissed off.

That's because Jim Zorn was Jim Zorn

I have a ton of faith in Gettles ability to evaluate talent.

I am worried as poo about him during our next coaching search.

Although, there is no evidence that he won't make a good hire, it is the one thing that worries me, that he won't be able to adjust to the times and will be looking for coaches with a style from 10 years ago instead of 10 years from now.

You basically stated every point I meant behind my post... I love gettles but if the organization thinks we are better hiding Cam as a game manager instead of playing to his strengths then Gettles may not be the best guy in terms of making this team offensively watchable on Sundays.

However I think the way the coaches were retained before Gettles arrived may answer the riddle of...is Jerry the wizard behind the whole thing? Is Gettles and Shula just carrying out the wishes of the teams owner about offensive philosophy?

It is just one game...I understand being conservative and things got magnified with the fumble and lost possesion on the punt muff. Overall I thought it was a perfectly planned game.

When you play methodical like that you cannot afford to lose a offensive series especially if the team gets the ball first in the second half.

If Cam got another 50 yards passing there would not be this outcry of how little we challanged the secondary. One series would have probably provided that statistically.

With all this said I would have loved the ballsey move to hire Chip Kelly and yes I envisioned how nice it would be to have Cam in that offense.

Do Want

 

 

Almost made a thread about him yesterday.

 

Just a little nervous if Jim is making him or Roman is making Jim/Kaep.

 

Not sure yet.

No this is not a- I wish Chip Kelly was our HC- thread. But I admire offensive minds that know how to manipulate formations.

 

 

The Eagles have what I like to call the older more fragile version of Cam Newton in Michael Vick. I just kept imagining Cam in those situations. What would happen if we ran that type of play and up tempo offense? Shula does not strike me as a ballsy signal caller, Zod knows. In the first game he showed some really good play calling for the most part. It is a learning process for him no doubt, I just hope he is a fast learner and is taking notes from our game against the Seahawks and maybe even taking notes on this game. Cam is the ultimate weapon. Use him correctly please.

 

 

The second thing I noticed that really makes me abhor ESPN, is that RG3 is sucking it up so bad, that they never mention him and sophomore slump in the same sentence. He is ¨Rusty¨.  Right, because he is immune to a sophomore slump right? ESPN makes me sick.

Maybe you could have waited until the game was over to add this analysis. 329 yards passing & 2 TDs is not a bad slump. I'm not big on upping Cam and bashing all other mobile QBs. But that's just me. Kaep/RG3/Wilson were all doing work. We can't keep bashing those guys because the panthers coaching staff is too inept to put our QB in similar position to succeed like those guys.

Why aren't fans bashing the redskins offense the way they have ours? Last I checked, they aren't lighting up the scoreboard. Guess they need to fire their OC, dump Griffin and can the HC. More evidence panther "fans" are the least knowledgable fans in the NFL

 

probably because they still put up 27 points as a team (with 20 on offense I think it was)

 

edit: sorry didn't see the time on your post :P haha
