1. We came out the gates swinging, and boy was it a good start, everything was clicking on offense and defense as we ended the 1st quarter with a 14 point lead
2. I love Nick Foles from the bottom of my heart, but he wasn’t his best today. He was shaky after 15 minutes, including under throwing multiple receivers on key plays. The pick by lattimore in the 2nd was under thrown, and we didn’t covert 2 3rd downs in the 4th because Foles under threw them. Brutal way to possible end his career in Philly
3. The receivers couldn’t get open after halftime and it showed dramatically. Good job by NOLA on pressing our receivers.
4. Our defense was horrible at the worst times. on the game winning touchdown drive, we failed to stop NOLA on a 3rd and 16 because an LB missed a tackle. Can’t do that if we want to win. Too many missed plays at the worst times
5. Outside of 5 plays, the Eagles really shutdown the Saints potent offense. Leblanc and Maddox all made big plays at times, the run game was pretty much non existent for the Saints, and they couldn’t covert on 3rd downs. But in the end, they failed to make the big plays at the right time.
6. Although the defense didn’t help out our cause to win, this game is on the offense. After a great first half, they offense was completely stagnant and rudderless. Receivers weren’t getting open, and Foles wasn’t making the throws that counted. Two plays away from a win
7. This game is gonna sting, but I am extremely proud at how we performed this year after everyone counted us out at 4-6. We won 5 of our next 6, and 4 in a row at one point. Extremely proud at what they accomplished as a team with the injuries, their resiliency, and the doubt on us. We will always bleed green. But this one stings ————————————————————————
