Giants vs Eagles Sunday Night

Giants vs Eagles

Eagles need to get back to the basics and let LeSean McCoy run the ball more, throw some screen passes to keep Vick healthy, and get ball out of his hand quicker.  The offense can’t turn the ball over.  In the first three games the offense has turned the ball over 12 times.  We can’t afford to make those turnovers and give it to Giants, they have a potent offense led by Eli Manning who can hurt the Eagles.  Eli can also pass the 1,000 yards mark after Sunday’s game is over.

Hakeem Nicks won’t play Sunday because of a foot injury, but Ramses Barden is gonna take his place and he had 9 catches for 138 yards last week against the Panthers.  If we can’t contain Barden who is 6-6 or 6-7,  it maybe long day for our secondary.  Our defense needs to put pressure on Manning because if it were in Manning’s face all day, we could force him into bad decisions.  If we can do this to Manning and stop the Giants offense from scoring a lot of points, we have a chance to win the game.

With Maclin back we should be able to keep up with Giants offense in scoring points.  Michael Vick just has to be smart and not hold on to the ball for too long against this Giants defense.  Vick will take more unnecessary hits if he does and last but not least, our offensive linemen have to protect Vick better so that he can last the whole game.

Week 11 Preview: Eagles-Giants

November 18th, 2011 by Scott Dargis | 2 Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football

It’s fun to play what ifs with this Eagles team. What if they didn’t blow a seven point lead to the Bears in the fourth quarter in week nine? What if they didn’t blow another seven point fourth quarter lead to the Cardinals last week?

Well then this game would have been for first place in the NFC East. The Eagles would have been only one game behind the Giants and due to the division record tie breaker going into Sunday night. Instead Philadelphia is floundering at 3-6, Michael Vick is most likely out leaving the starting duties to Vince Young. There is a chance Jeremy Maclin might not play and who knows what to expect from DeSean Jackson. This is a team that is in turmoil and this is the game where the apocalypse unfolds.

Eagles Offense vs. Giants Defense

The Giants practiced all week preparing for Michael Vick, but he will not see the field on Sunday due to his broken ribs. This means of course the man who accidentally dubbed this team the “dream team” now will take the reigns under center. We haven’t seen very much of Vince Young, he was in long enough against Washington to throw an awful interception and was in last week just long enough to hand the ball off to McCoy.

Between struggling to learn the offense in the pre-season and missing some time due to injury it is hard to endorse a start from Young and expect the Eagles to move the football through the air. Their only chance for success is going to come from a balanced attack with a btd (big time dose) of Shady McCoy. These are his stats from his last three games against the G men.
