Hello humanoids. @TK and I will be live from the Linc today.

 

This blog is meant to be an interactive experience. That means we need you... the people... This isn't going to JUST be an info thread. You'll get that, of course... but witty banter will be bandied about like chocolate in Willy Wonka's factory. So what does this mean? Post. What can you post? Anything. Ask questions. Ask about the food, the Wooly Mammoth (where the rally was, and as @superozman would "it was lit ???"), ask about Theismann's hair (he's not here but ask anyways, I'm sure it's wonderful)... Ask about a specific player... Ask about anything. Literally. I'll even tell you what I ate for breakfast.

 

Check back here for more...

 

Some tidbits: 

 

Scherff, according to a birdie, is likely to play.

 

Reed is likely to play.

 

Joe Barry had a sweet hoodie on last night at the hotel

 

TK couldn't get his crowbar through security (not sure why he wanted me to relay this info... weird, right?)

 

Philadelphia was a nightmare to drive in last night, but our Uber driver was badass. She had a Mike Tyson style tattoo and she drove with an aggressiveness that rivaled anyone. She bobbed and wove like Ali in his prime. Shout out to her.

im not sure "in position" means what they think it means.

 

11:39 AM: Sundberg is warming up. We're wearing white on burgundy. Love that look.

 

11:42 AM: Inactives: Sudfield, Ross, Jones, Blackmon, Long, Lauvao, Lanier

 

Sullivan starting at C, Kouandjio starting at LG, Ihenacho starting for Blackmon at safety.

 

Noon: Way punting 55-60 yards from LOS in warm ups. Perfect spirals. WAY to Punt! Get it? Way to punt?

 

12:05 PM: 4202D631-43F7-441A-BDBB-E7912E0A3531_zps

 

TK found a ride while he takes pics. What's with the hoodie though, man?

 

12:22 PM: The referees mic is working. File that under, "things you didn't know you cared about..." but I know you do and I have your backs.

 

12:36 PM: Cousins needs just 356 yards to break the single season passing record that he owns. Has four games to do it. Needs around 1,200 for 5000. Would need to average ~300/game. Doable.

 

12:50 PM: C90D994F-371B-4320-8516-983E5EB96316.jpg

 

its 10 minutes before kickoff. Where is everyone? Place looks like their trophy case.

 

First D drive: Linebackers are concerning me. Slow to fill on run, too deep on passes. Tells me they are nervous about getting beat behind them.

 

First O drive: second down draw an iffy ar best call. Probably had a tendency they were trying to bust and out thought ourselves. Crowder ran his route short of the chains.

 

2nd O Drive: Eagles watching Crowder like a hawk. Need Garçon to keep coming through.

 

End of the 1st quarter: Skins look sloppy and ill prepared. Eagles taking away Crowder and attacking Dunbar. Skins need to shore that up immediately.

 

Defensive issues: Inside backers struggling to expand on flat routes. OLB/DEs rushing means someone has to get to flat. Safeties being run off. That's also why our ILBs are so deep on passes and hesitant to fill on run. ILB is a large issue.

 

Touchdown Drive: Great job mixing it up and keeping the running game involved. Good play calling and execution there. Important. McCloughan, Santos et al should be proud of that one.

 

Norman anticipated a short pass and got beat deep on a 3rd down play. It's what you get with him. Important to note, Kerrigan played man to man on TE to flats on the second third down attempt on that drive. Good adjustment.

 

Halftime thoughts: Need to adjust coverage scheme. Part of the issue is cornerback being a barren wasteland of talent. We can't leave the flats open all game. LBs need to trust instincts and be more aggressive. Offense needs to keep Kelley involved and find Garcon. He is the x-factor for the O. They are more worried about Crowder and Jackson. He has to get targets. 

 

Jackson TD: They had been setting that up all game long. Great play. Desean's burst is a huge asset to this offense.

 

That TD to Garcon should have put Cousins over 4000 yards on the season.

 

The personal foul on Sproles was a personal foul by rule. But in no way was it dirty. Hard football play that timed out wrong for Everett.

Fetch me an omelette with everything. 

 

Also so the best thing about having a non senior coverage guy is they get to carry your bags. @themurf @JimmiJo @Spaceman SpiffYou guys would love this. :silly: 

For the record... I've only carried Murf's bags. 

 

TK snores too loud. I can't do favors for him in good conscience.

At least I can turn on the shower. :ols:

Listen... 

 

That thing had 3 switches, 2 heads and a faulty go-between to turn the bath off and allow the shower to thrive.

 

You should be thanking me. I fixed that go-between and you benefitted. 

 

Ungrateful.

Enjoy today, gents!  Hope you have the same results I had with fewer injuries/heart-pounding endings.

What is, "Things I wish my wife would say more often?"

Gotta get back to pre-game baby duty, but have an awesome time and I'll be in the GDT acting like a five-year-old as usual while keeping up with the blog!

Walked by Cravens right before the half in the tunnel. Way he was holding his arm I'd say he tore his bicep. Having done that myself it looked REAL familiar.
