Philly is good at run stopping and that is all

OUR OL needs to get back to better protection and better running lanes letting us down a bit right now

Hopefully our OL will go back to their normal positions for the Eagles. Hill really had a bad game today. I thought they should have gave him more help.
Also the blocked punt didn’t help things any. But I think that is more on special teams.

Hill did his job on that last play.

Speaking of the Vegas line ...

The Vikings were 5.5 point favorites against the Saints.

I wonder how many people were pissed that Case took a knee for the final extra point!

They need to change the rules for that. Unnecessary to kick the XP. Almost like having them finish the inning in baseball after a walkoff HR.

Yeah I'm wondering if they go back to Remmers at RT and bring in Sirles. Hill had a really tough game.

I'm not sure Remmers would have fared much better again Jordan. He's a beast. Little surprised they didn't give Hill more help.

I'm not sure there are any OL in the league that can be effective against Cam Jordan 1 on 1 for an entire game. It was disappointing that they didn't give Hill help.

What is Hills natural position?

Road game... high stakes.

This game will be against a better defensive front 7 than the Saints and better Defense overall. However, also a game against a worse, offense. Arguably much worse.

We should be favored. Our Defense is better than Philadelphia's so we should not struggle to contain their offense. This will be a game where it is up to the offense to not be careless with the football.

My hope is that as awesome as yesterday was, it serves as a wake up call that it is the playoffs and dumb mistakes almost cost them the chance to play in this game.
