2009 - Game 1 Thoughts

wow. i am ecstatic with today's win. even if i thought i had a feel for the team coming into this season (i didn't), i don't think there is any way i'd have predicted that the birds would totally dominate a 12 win team in such devastating fashion.

a few things that were plainly evident today:

- this team can rush the passer. wow, can this team rush the passer. cole, parker, abiamiri, clemons, howard -- holy smokes. those guys combined with our two great fat guys clogging up the middle to just dominate what is supposed to be a very good o-line. good omen for the season if this is what the defense can do.

- desean jackson is so f-ing fast. when he runs, we might as well be the guys chasing him. everyone looks like they're running in quicksand. he scares me when he starts celebrating 20 yards from the endzone though... "don't drop the f-ing ball!"

- i only noticed winston justice once today -- on the peppers sack when mcnabb rolled left and probably should have let the ball go or run the ball. he played well.

- peters mashes people off the line. tra was a great pass blocker, but he was never a particularly good run blocker. if peters gets his "timing and cadence" down, big red's proclaimation that peters is the best left tackle in the game might not be too far off. (though i don't really understand why it's taking so long for him to get the timing down on the silent count)

- the panthers had 169 total yards today (about 50 of them on the first drive after that fluky parker facemask). 2.9 yards per rush, 2.4 yards per pass. are you kidding me. this was a team that won 12 games last season!

- quintin mikell trucked a running back on a safety blitz. i had to rewind the dvr to see which "linebacker" had done the pancaking, only to be surprised to see it was a safety. i've never seen a safety do that before.

- the birds can rush the passer, and they have 4 starting caliber cornerbacks. they've consistently been 3 deep on corners, but never this deep. also, how professional is sheldon brown? lito doesn't get his new contract, he pouts, whines, and fakes injury. sheldon takes it like a man, and uses it as motivation. he looks primed to have a pretty damn good season. if he plays like this for the rest of the season, i'd give him his new contract.

- akers must have gone on the lenny dykstra vitamin routine this offseason. he never kicked the ball further than he did today. his opening kick was 4 yards deep in the endzone and his 48 yard field goal would have been good from 60 easily (it was 2/3 of the way up the net when it hit). whatever it takes baby.

- really happy to see the birds have a legitimate nfl fullback on the roster. haven't had one since poor jon ritchie blew out his knee.

some things not to lose sight of in the euphoria of the win:

- drops, it never changes with this team. donovan just throws the ball too hard i guess. don only threw 18 passes today and 3 of them were drops on balls that hit the receiver in the numbers.

- westbrook did not show any explosiveness. coming off injury, probably not in game shape, doesn't have his timing, etc. all of those are probably factors, no doubt, but westbrook's first two steps were s-l-o-w compared to a couple of seasons ago. the good news is that mccoy looked active and spry.

- kevin kolb has no pocket awareness right now. i'm being tough on him too, but let's not be too rough on him. he's basically never played in the nfl. i don't think he's doing any worse than don did his first few games. kolb just doesn't have the athleticism to keep stuff alive while he gets his bearings. that being said, this defense better come prepared to play if don is out next week. there is a pretty darn prolific offense coming to town.

one interesting note: while trying to educate myself a little on the upcoming season over the last week and i read a few things that surprised me, one of them was that darren howard and chris gocong were among the leaders at their positions for "defeating" the opposing player in one on one situations.

i'd be interested to see how our fat guys stack up. i'm really happy with how bunkley and patterson control the middle. i know everyone was very worried when bradley went down, but do you think it's possible that the play of the fat guys possibly made him look better than he actually was? just a thought. i thought he was a good player, but didn't really understand why everyone was panicking when he went down. the guy is not the second coming of ray lewis.

what a way to start a season!

good to have you back TMG. Spot on and fair observations. Saw the same game in all aspects. Loved what I saw from Shady, did not notice 18. Did he even suit up? I like what Alex Smith will bring when he gets in the fold. I love the Vick pick now because I think Kolb completely lacks awareness and panics under pressure. Vick can at least run around and make foot plays.

Any opinion on Andrews? I know backs are touchy and emotional issues are as well, but gun to your head, you are Andy Reid, do you say enough is enough and make this his last season?

it probably depends on how the season plays out, but drama queen or not, he's too valuable to dump for pennies on the dollar or cut outright. he's simply too young and too good to not make every last effort to get his head right.

besides, do you want another andrew toney situation? everyone doubted his injuries and he was constantly being criticized for being soft. meanwhile the real problem was that medicine hadn't yet discovered the stress fracture.

the guy is a head case, no doubt, but who knows, maybe he really is injured?

the only thing i know is this -- i wouldn't want to see him healthy and playing for some other team.

as long as justice seems like a serviceable option at right tackle, there is no reason to rush into anything you might regret later.

Welcome back, TMG.

Defense was probably primed to win one for JJ. I hope they can carry the emotion through the entire season. Blitzes seemed to work a high percentage of the time. This won't be the case next weekend as Brees gets the ball out a lot quicker.

Asante absolutely shut down Smith yesterday. One WR screen and a whole lot of nothing. Nice.

I noticed the same thing about Akers though none of the rest of his kickoffs ever got that deep. I wonder if that's because the Special Teams coordinator had him kicking the ball differently?

Everyone is saying McDermott's got lots of wrinkles that we haven't seen yet. This might get interesting.

Garcia signing tells us Kolb and Vick are not the answers. Nice to see Reid pulling out all the stops here. Goes to show you how much he values the QB position. He will NOT let a 5 injury stop him from winning a SB.

love the Garcia grab. Vick is Reid's athlete, not his QB. I don't like Kolb even a little bit. terrible mechanics. This weekend should be his last start ever as a Bird. I would rest Don the next 3 weeks as he was very solid save for a silly throw into traffic.

i'll be shocked if garcia's on the roster 4 weeks from now. i wouldn't rush to judgement on kolb, we haven't seen him play enough to make any sort of realistic assessment. based on snippets, winston justice might have been cut already, which would be a shame because he looks like he might actually be able to play.

let's at least give kolb one start before deciding he has no future.

We've seen him back pedal in a pannicked fashion and randomly throw hurried throws in the face of a rush often enough to gauge that his mechanics look to be suspect. He also throws off his back foot too frequently and he just never seems to be able to move the team on offense. He also seems to lack pocket awareness. he held the ball 8 seconds on his sack fumble the other day. He has played a lot of QB in his life, he ahs to know that isn't normal. Admitted limited result set, but I've never liked what I've seen out of him and I hope he proves me wrong. I think a team that loves to blitz-Giants, Dallas, Bears-would give him fits and really slow our offense down.

And Justice played one game and did OK. He did give up a sack and when they ran they ran left, so not sure I would yet call him a success story. He didn't kill them and I like the guy and the way he amnned up and took his lumps from fans and media, but I'm not yet ready to call him an NFL caliber tackle.

How is it the Eagles managed to sign Garcia when the team that REALLY needs him is CAR? I think that shows you what he thinks of this organization despite the fact they wouldn't pay him to be a starter 3 years ago.

Bumble, the thing about back-up QBs is that 90% of the time they're back-ups for a reason. Kolb isn't better than 5 so we shouldn't expect him to be. I tend to side with TMG in that we haven't seen a prepared Kolb in the preseason yet. I don't know enough about mechanics to say anything, but good decision making will overcome that a lot of the time. Course none of us knows if he has that or not.

8:23 PM EDT  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Haven't seen a prepared Kolb in pre season yet? I'm sorry, isn't this guy's job professional football player? And by that logic wouldn't part of his job description be "be prepared to play, even in pre season"? I hate to quibble on minor details, he is and always will be a backup for a reason, I'm just certain that of the 5-6 times I've seen him play, he tosses the biscuit up too easily on picks and fumbles, he has so-so arm strength, he back pedals under pressure, and his mechanics are shaky. One week of practice with the first stringers probably won't change that, but I'm hazarding a guess.

I hope you are right, but I'd feel a heckuva lot safer with Garcia in there. Weak arm but knows the system and will care take nicely and let Don heal vs. be rushed back into action.

Bumble, I think our defense just proved that what happens in the pre-season doesn't necessarily transfer into the regular season. Since Kolb has played those games with back-up, who knows how good he is? I don't anything about mechanics so they may really suck. We'll see.

Very interesting game coming up again NO. We need to see last week's D show up again to have any chance. I definitely share your concerns about a Kolb-lead O.

7:38 AM EDT  
Anonymous Phil said...

Why is everyone predicting a shootout for this NO game? I don't think there's anyway Kolb puts up 25 points this week. And our defense is good enough to keep them under 20 based on last week's game. I see this more as a 17-20 or 21-20 type game.

9:08 AM EDT

Phil NO has put a lot of points up on various Birds defenses the last few years and would score a lot of points on most teams. I don't think it means the D sucks or anything this weekend if they give up 28, I just think NO has too many options to spread the field and a great QB for that system. To me, the Birds only shot is to play ball control because they are not going to hold that team under 3 scores. No knock on them at all, but this may be the toughest team they face on offense. Although the Birds do have a ton of CB and could match the 5 WR set pretty well, I do predict a huge game for Shockey over that LB corps.

me either bumble. my point here is to try to draw a comparison to the kolb situation. justice looks like he coul be an nfl caliber tackle when all is said and done. based on snippets only, he might have been cut two seasons ago.

i think we should hold off on passing any judgements until he's given a fair shot to play -- even though he hasn't shown us anything encouraging to this point.

my sense is that there seems to be a belief that the saints can score on anyone's defense. on the flip side, there seems to be a belief that anyone can score on the saints defense -- e.g. lions putting up 27 against them with a rookie qb.

i'm pretty interested to see what kolb can do. one thing andy seems to do really well is "coach up" quarterbacks. if he can coax a feeley led offense to score 28 on a belichick defense, i'm optimistic he can get kolb to do some damage against the saints.

Bumble, I bet our D does much better than you think. 20-17 is the score on Sunday, but I have no idea who scores the 20. Am very afraid we don't win this game.

Pretty interested? Yikes. I'm pretty horrified to find out what Kolb can do. I guess if you're going to roll him out, then this is the D to do it against.

I missed most of the game, but the bits I saw were very concerning. Looks like McDermott laid an egg with a crap game plan involving no pressure. You let Brees sit back and scan the field he'll cut you up like a surgeon. Too many turnovers spells doom. You cannot fumble that second half kickoff and then have Kolb throw a crushing pick. Game goes from dogfight to over in the span of 2 minutes. Cannot happen at home vs. a good team. Kolb looked Ok to me at times, but his mechanics are terrible and he is way too careless with the ball. if he never started another game I'd be OK with that. This team is nowhere without Don at the helm. D not as good as they looked last week, not as terrible as today, but way too many stupid penalties and mental mistakes by this team. Hopefully they've gotten the turd out of their system and can move forward. The Saints are better than them right now, but they aren't a 50 point, 4 TD better team.

Bumble

11:18 PM EDT  
Anonymous Phil said...

Agreed - those turnovers killed the team right there. Again, I don't know about mechanics, but Kolb played fairly decently. Threw the ball well with a couple balls behind the player and picks offset by the great pass to DeSean (how often does 5 hit a guy in perfect stride like that) and couple very quick throws to beat the blitz. He also ran the 2 minute drill well to end the first half. He's not a top 10 or top 20 QB by any stretch of the imagination, but he's clearly serviceable. Coming out of that game, I think that's a plus.

I have no idea what happened to the D. The short fields in the 3Q didn't help matters, but they were never able to get off the field when they needed it. It almost looked like they were playing a prevent defense the whole game.

And you forgot the special teams penalties. They probably cost the Eagles a good 10-15 yards of field possession on every series. Awful coverage units. Several shanks by Rocca. Akers is erratic on his kickoffs, too. He'll hit 1 into the endzone and then the next 3 are at the 10. This unit needs to improve very fast in my opinion.

7:13 PM EDT  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Agree Phil. Not saying Kolb was terrible-didn't love that game ending turnover after the fumbled kickoff-but he did some good things. My thought is he is not an NFL starter and I want Don 1000 days out of 1000.

Penalties are pissing me off more than anything else. They are happening everywhere as well. Special teams, O line, D. That crap needs to be cleaned up in pre season. This team looks undisciplined and soft to me right now. What the hell did they do for the past 7 weeks?

Samuel had his worst game as a pro from the limited amount I saw. He is better than that. They have shutdown DB yet Brees threw to seemingly open men all day. Maybe it was complete lack of pass rush, but what the heck happened to our secondary? I never expected them all to get abused like that. It wasn't Randy Moss on the other side.

Westbrook looks done to me. No burst, shockingly already hurt, good bye.

Stacey Andrews got paid an awful lot of money not to know his plays. Pathetic.

But then they could stomp a mudhole in KC and make this week moot. i fear they won't do that due to Kolb at the helm and a shaky D.

I think we can all agree that KC is atrocious. Any time they got a shred of positive momentum going, they pulled a dumb penalty out of their fannies.

Bad mechanics or not, Kolb is an NFL starting caliber QB. Not a bad game for his second start.

Wildcat's got to go. They're getting no production out of the format especially vs. their standard packages.

Just because someone else overpaid for Dawk doesn't mean the Eagles "let him go". They wanted him back they just didn't want to give him that much money. Even saying that, Banner's already come out and said they should have upped their offer to keep him. Everyone makes mistakes, but at least the Eagles seem to make those kind of mistakes and not Jamarcus Russell sized mistakes.

Kolb offensive player of the week for the NFC last week. That's got to be a little bit of a surprise.

Remember back earlier this decade when there was a lot of parity? Doesn't look to be the case anymore. Bad teams are really, really bad and everyone else is decent with only a couple best teams.

Thank goodness the Eagles are much closer to the latter than the former. Never too early to celebrate Thanksgiving in this regard.

Roger that, Bumble. How does an 11 yr head coach get so thoroughly schooled by a 1st/2nd yr guy with possibly the worst team in the league. Again, poor, poor, poor gameplanning by AR coming into the game. I'm not even surprised anymore !! Why does our veteran QB continue to struggle with slow starts week in and week out ?? He cried for weapons, we got him plenty, yet he continues to get off to slow starts. Time mgmnt : First, our Syracuse graduate calls a timeout when we don't have any !! ARE YOU KIDDING ME !!!!! Westbrook knew the game situation, why didn't Donovan ? 4th quarter -- why did we waste 2 timeouts from 2:14 remaining to the 2 minute warning. Doesn't it make sense to let those 14 seconds run off and use those timeout to stop the clock AFTER the 2 minute warning ?? I'm not saying this had any effect on the outcome -- we all know this group's struggles in come from behind, less than 2 minutes to go -- but it's still laughable that AR hasn't figured out how to better manage the clock. I stopped living & dying by this team a year or 2 ago when I accepted that the AR/Donnie Mac combo will not get it done - and I enjoy football much more now. I still watch the Eagles always, but I am not surprised at this type of performance any longer. I thoroughly enjoyed the Balt/Minn game yesterday, look forward to the Denver/San Diego game tonite (as well as the phillies). I know some of the eternal optomists will throw out the, West Coast, long flight, bad team, looking ahead to division game next week, they're really not this bad excuse..... Guess what ????

My thing is when the good coaches (i.e. Bleicheck) are faced with a team that is blitzing the house, they just take it away. "OK, you're blitzing everyone, I'm 3 step dropping and hitting quick slants until you stop". Birds have the weapons to do that, yet don't. I just don't understand why their whole game plan was chuck as deep as possible with an O line struggling vs. the blitz. This is why I say that Don and reid will never get it done. Great teams win those games. The Giants wiped their ass with Oakland. i know Oakland was inspired, but at some poitn emotion dies down and the betetr team finds a way to win. instead, it was the same old pile of crap. It;'s these losses that kill them because it erases their margin for error and forces them to win one they'd have been underdogs in.
