Forget about the Eagles only running the ball 13 times, or Doug Pederson acting like a toddler on Christmas morning and only playing with a cardboard box when his brand new LeGarrette Blount sits unloved on the sideline. No. What I missed most on Sunday was Doug’s dedication to his wide receiver screen game plan that has given the team so much success in the past.
How can you expect to keep a defense honest when you don’t throw in at least one or two wide receiver screens a game? You’re doing yourself a disservice when you don’t give Wentz the opportunity to throw a haphazard pass to an unprepared receiver 8-yard behind the line of scrimmage.
He let the fans down and he let his team down. Bring the screen back Doug, we beg of you.
Or at least run the ball more than 13 GODDAMN TIMES. Fuck my life. Mix in a draw once in a while so I don’t have to see Carson Wentz overthrow/underthrow every single pass he throws over 25-yards. Jesus.
Other game notes after the jump:
By the way, is it the most Eagles thing of all time to actually trade UP for a running back in a historically great running back draft class and get the worst one? I’m a bit sad we don’t get to see Pumphrey play at all for the rest of the year, we have to wait until next season to actually get to experience how much of a bust he really.
Maybe I’m being overly pessimistic. I’m sure a small, diminutive running back who completely relies on his speed and quickness to be effective will be just fine coming off a hamstring tear. I’m sure he’ll be just as explosive and will be out there muffing punts in no time.
Also, someone needs to get LeGarrette Blount a book on grammar:
So you actually COULD care a little bit less than you do now? Fucking got him. Maybe care less about staying on the field until the end of the game instead of worrying about what people think of you on Twitter, LeGarrette?
You think he’d be tweeting this nonsense after a Patriots loss?! Not on Belichick’s watch, amigo. THAT’S NOT THE PATRIOT WAY.
Also, he probably should have learned from Odell Beckham Jr.
At least Odell said “no offense.” LeGarrette came out swinging.
Poor Vinny Curry. I don’t want to overreact to this, but you stink and you, and you alone, lost the Eagles the game on this play.
Oh, you’ll get him next time? Good to know. Now go home and get your fucking shine box. OLD SPIT SHINE VINNY. He’s being fucking fresh. Break up my party…
