Leave it to Brandon Boykin to make a big play to save the game for Philadelphia, with 32 seconds left in the game at home vs. rival Washington.

The Eagles looked as if they were going to cruise easily to victory this past Sunday vs. the now 3-7 Redskins, but the game drastically changed, in Washington’s favor, when the Eagles decided to slow down the pace of the game with a 24-0 lead after halftime.

That’s when Washington’s defense came up with a few stops in succession, to be able to put their offense, struggling at that point, in a position to score some points and get back in the game. Well, that’s exactly what they did. Washington scored 16 unanswered points in the 4th quarter, and after a 24-point deficit, cut the lead to just a touchdown (plus a two-point conversion). Even more impressively perhaps, on top of the touchdowns to cut the Philly lead, was Washington’s red-zone offense’s effectiveness on the two-point conversion attempts. They were 2-2 in two-point attempts, even though they were poor outside of that in the red-zone.

The first time they made it to the red zone was with little over nine minutes to play in the second quarter, when backup running back Roy Helu Jr. ran for a 24-yard gain to setup 1st and 10 on the Philadelphia 20 yard line. On the very next play, Eagles’ linebacker Connor Barwin sacked Griffin for an eight yard loss, and subsequently stripped the ball from him for a forced fumble, which lead to an Eagles’ recovery by Fletcher Cox.

The Philadelphia Eagles, in less than 12 hours from now, will attempt to gain sole possession of first place within the NFC East division, with a win over rival Washington, who’s coming off of a seven point loss, 34-27, at Minnesota 10 days ago on a Thursday night game. Last season, Washington was in a very similar, almost exact situation as this season. Last year, they were 3-6 as well, and went on to win seven consecutive games to finish at 10-6 — good enough for first place within the NFC East; Washington’s first division title in 13 years, since they went 10-6 in the 1999 season.

Meanwhile, Philadelphia can’t seem to buy a win at home these past couple of seasons, for whatever reason. They’re winless at home this season, at 0-4, while Washington is 1-4 on the road. Currently, Philadelphia has a 10-game losing streak at home, dating back to last year. Their last home victory came over a year ago, vs. the Giants, on September 30th, when they won 19-17.

The former is tied for dead last, with the New York Giants, within the division, while Philadelphia is tied, with five wins a piece, with Dallas for the lead. Washington has been outscored by 57 points thus far, 287-230, while Philadelphia has outscored their opponents by eight points, 252-244.

Eagles vs Redskins Opening Day Preview

September 8th, 2013 by Leo | Comments Off on Eagles vs Redskins Opening Day Preview | Filed in Eagles, Football, General

So the season opener for the Eagles is finally here. There is a lot of anticipation for the 2013 season with the new coach Chip Kelly at the helm. There was also controversy and competition at the Quarterback position with Michael Vick winning the job over Nick Foles. There was the Riley Cooper controversy over an angry outburst with racial overtones. There was the loss of Maclin to an injury and all of this has left the fans wondering what the Eagles record will be.

From most of the feedback I have heard and the poll TalkSportsPhilly ran, the range for the Eagles record is from 6-10 to 9-7. I personally said it would be 7-9. Wouldn’t it be nice if the Eagles surprised us all with a winning record and a playoff berth under the new coach.

Their first test this year will be against last year’s division winning Washington Redskins led by RG III. The question is will Griffin be affected by his knee injury that caused him to miss preseason. The Eagles plan on playing a healthy RG III and are prepared for that scenario. RG III told reporters that he will not change his style of play because of the injury.

For the Eagles, the question will be how will Vick perform in Chip Kelly’s offensive scheme. This is Vick’s 12th year in the NFL and he has another chance to prove himself to the Philly Fans. The Eagles need to establish a running game with McCoy and Vick needs to stay contained and hit his receivers. The Redskins are planning to put pressure on Vick so the offensive line will be key as well. The Defense needs to contain RG III and keep the points down. If the Eagles can do these things I believe they will win a close one over the Redskins! Lets see.

E-A-G-L-E-S….EAGLES!

McNabb: Peyton Won’t Work In D.C. Because I Didn’t

February 28th, 2012 by Johnny G | Comments Off on McNabb: Peyton Won’t Work In D.C. Because I Didn’t | Filed in Eagles, Football, General

How delusional has Donovan McNabb become? He sat down with ESPN 980 to discuss his upcoming plans for the future, when the conversation eventually got around to the possibility of Peyton Manning going to the Redksins. According to McNabb and his warped look on reality, Manning would never succeed in Washington because…..you guessed it, McNabb himself didn’t work out in Washington. The similarities between the two are mind-blowing- they both play quarterback, they both played in one system for most of their career, and…well that’s pretty much it.

“Peyton’s not gonna go there,” he said. “I don’t see Peyton ending up in Washington. Because what happens is now, you’re bringing in another veteran who will be 35 36, who has been in one offense throughout his career. It’s the same situation.”

“Now he comes over, and as they say now, Peyton is such an offensive coordinator on the offense. So now what does that do to your offensive coordinator? Does he step down? Does he step back? Does he begin to change the whole offense according to the play of the quarterback that he has in Peyton Manning? Well, I didn’t see that happen, so I definitely don’t see that happening for Peyton.”
