Playing Catch-up: Eagles Beat the Colts, The NFL Sucks, and What’s on the Horizon

So there’s been a lot going on in the last week and so I’d like to get through it all in a rapid-fire style:

Eagles vs Colts:

  • Nick Foles looked below average again this week. He missed a number of screens, deep balls, and seemed generally like he had drunk goggles on. Some decent decisions on the read-option, but that’s about it.
  • Can we all agree that Riley Cooper stinks again? Hauling in a single catch for 8 yards against Indy, the most productive thing that he’s done was tell Sproles to give the ball to the refs following a long run to keep things moving.
  • If I could reincarnate as anything in the world it’d be Darren Sproles. Respected by the big boys, but small enough to be allowed on the slide at Dutch Wonderland.
  • Our defensive line is by no means a sure thing this year despite the level of talent available. If they continue to play this poorly, I think you need to look at the scheme.
  • No real use of the stack formation from the Eagles yet. Not a huge deal, but certainly surprising.
  • Parkey has finally done us wrong, but he came through when it mattered. Do you have any doubt about him?

The National Football Legal Issues

  • Ray Rice was the major topic on last week’s episode of sports beyond Measure. Check it out here!
  • Adrian Peterson being suspended is a bad case as well, but doesn’t it feel like the public is exhausted from all of this NFL stuff now? There’s not nearly the same level of uproar.
  • The NFL is finally getting something right and changing the drug policy. About time!

Sixers and Flyers

  • We’re almost at the best time of the year: The Sixers, Flyers, and Eagles all going at once. Nerlens Noel, Scott Laughton. There’s some young blood to be excited about, people!

Eagles vs Skins

  • We have a Making Friends with the Enemy on the way. Stay tuned.

  1. Vince, I can trade you Foles and Cooper at low low low rock bottom prices. Do I need to post this comment on the FFL web page? I don’t think so. The league reads the Wooder Cooler.
