  • Is Chris Clemons the new Jevon Kearse? After getting a massive contract in the off-season from thee Eagles, to say Clemons has been underwhelming through three games would be too kind. He only has one tackle so far and a pass deflected. Granted, it's only three games, and Darren Howard is playing like a man possessed so you don't really notice Clemons, but I'm starting to feel a little uncomfortable about Clemons.

    • That comparison is a little harsh. I don't think the expectations were/are nearly as high as they were for Kearse. I don't think Clemons is getting nearly as much in his contract (in comparison with other DE contracts) money wise. I may not be remembering correctly, but isn't Clemons only getting paid about 3 mil per year? I know that is a lot of money for his production, but wasn't Kearse making much more? Clemons has time yet, its only three games and he is already making an impact on Special Teams. Consider who we were playing as well, all three teams had a Pro Bowl RB last year, and we want to stop the run. Clemons is our pass rush specialist, and he may not see as much time because of who we have played. Now we were never really up enough in any of our games (except the Rams) so the opposing teams would have to pass a lot more, and maybe when we get in those situations, we will see more of him. Once Abiamiri comes back, I think it will be tough for him to make an impact on the defense, but he could. I wouldn't call him a Kearse though.

      • **** the Bears, we outplayed them on both sides of the ball, if only Akers could kick a field goal... We should have tried a qb sneak up the middle on at least one of those plays on goal line.

        • I feel sick. I cant believe how bad things are when Westbrook isnt playing. Also we had the game on a silver platter and threw it away.

          Thanks Eaglez.Fan

            You can forgive him for the 51 yarder. The attempt after that, I think it was 47, has to be made, especially after missing one. Of course then the Bears goal line stand never happens and the Eagles kick a field goal to go ahead 26-24.

            I completely agree with you cunningham, they outplayed the Bears on both sides of the ball. With that said, the offense needed to pick up the slack. Yea, Westbrook didn't play and we all know what he adds to the offense, but there's no excuse for the failure to score a TD inside the 10 yard on multiple occasions. Reminds me of last year when it seemed like being inside the 10 was more of a curse than an opportunity. There were so many mistakes offensively it makes me sick. The only solace I take from the game, offensively at least, is that if you take a way just a couple of the many mistakes this is a W.

            Hopefully next week against Washington is a different story.

            • Andy should have challenged the 4 and goal play he scored. The top camera angle showed the Bucks forearm and ball crossed and then was brought backwards.

              After the Dallas game the eagles have looked bad on offense, the Steelers D is good. But against the Bears D where did the WRs go.

              Also Jackson I think gives up on plays that are not for him, like the play with the pick that was thrown at Jackson. It looked like he was jogging, and seeing that the safety was on the outside he should have looked in, Rookie mistake I guess, but looked like he didn't give much effort on that play.

              Is Jackson scared to get hit now, in the preseason and even the first game he was going over the middle and staying in bounds. Now he looks like he wants to avoid contact. On the reverse he ran out, on the punt returns he tried to avoid being hit, or trying to break a tackle. The last punt when he went out was fine since there was 15 seconds left.

              Well if they would have won, NFC East would have the best record and be tied for second instead of being last.

              • He didn't score on that run, the ball never crossed the line so it doesn't matter if his forearm did or not.

                You did definately outplay us though. That's the second year in a row we've beaten you when we probably shouldn't have.

                Then again we lost last week when we shouldn't have. It happens. Best o' luck.

                    Buck didn't score, and the whole reason is Matt Schoeble can't block to save his life, he let Ogunleye (I think) right in and that was the guy who grabbed Buck and kep him out.

                    For once, Madden was right. Jackson made the right read in cutting to the outside. I am a big supporter of McNabb, but that was on him, not Jackson. The safety was stragiht ahead of Jackson, so he cut outside, which was the right move. He didn't give up, it was jsut part of the route he was running. In some routes, you don't go 100% until you make your cut, which he did, but once the INT was caught, he turned and ran for the tackle. Of course he was picked up and blocked, taken out of the play almost instantly, but he was trying.

                    It is called smart running. You run outside to save your body if you cant get extra yards. Almost all players do it nowadays. Westy does it, so does Donovan, and they aren't afraid of contact. He has gone over the middle plenty of times this season. I didn't see as much of it last night but he was still doing it nonetheless. I would rather he run out of bounds or avoid contact because it will extend his career.

                    Once again, it seems like we are beating a dead horse, but clock management was poor again. With 2:43 left in the game, and one timeout, you let the bears run their play and with the 40 second clock the bears would have to run one more play before the two minute warning, unless the play takes onger than 3 seconds, which it might, but then you bite the bullet and save it for the other side of the two minute warning. So the Bears would come out on the other side of the two minute warning on 3rd down the Eagles take a timeout right afterward, and you get the ball with approximately one minute left instead of :17 seconds. I love Andy and everything he does for the team, but this is the one thing that he does struggle with.

                    • Well if the team keeps this up, we are going to have a very up and down season, one week looking like a Super-Bowl team, and another looking like an average team at best. I know we were without our best weapon for this game and our best O-linemen, but the passing defense is really what concerns me. It was supposed to be a strength, and right now, it is the weakness of our defense, and maybe our team. We lead the league in sacks and rushing yards, but give up tons of yards and TDs in the passing game. We have the payers, but for whatever reason they are being taken advantage of, with the exception of Asante Samuel, he is proving to be worth it all. He has been our most consistent DB so far.

                      Oh yeah, bhaarat, our WRs had a total of 16 catches (or more) last night.
                      Brown had 6-actually looked pretty good if not for a few dropped ball (familiar stroy isn't it)
                      Jackson had 5- looked good, plus he had some runs as well
                      Avant had 4-made some plays, had the one on his back, he has 1 of those per week
                      Baskett had at least one-quiet last night
                      GLew had 0, I think, may have had at least one, but was thrown to a few times.

                      I don't know how many completions McNabb had, but I'm sure that is about 60% or more of Donovan's completions.

                      Celek has looked solid, but not as a starter. Right now, I say we shouldn't count on him as our future at TE and we should invest an early pick in the draft if we want better production from the position.

                      • Just looked at the game stats, GLew did have a catch and McNabb had 25 completions so that is 17/25 completions, or 68% completions to WRs. That isn't bad considering we are still missing our tow WR and with thte style of offense we run and considering the situations and personnell we have, that is acceptable.

                              • When Shawn Andrews returns, what are the odds MJG moves to LG in favor of Herremans? Herremans has been pretty underwhelming and MJG has played very well in his time spelling Andrews. IIRC, he had one especially nice block vs. the Bears where he pulled and took out a crashing LB, springing Buckhalter for a 20~ish yard run.
