Self-explanatory, I'm trying to get a feel for the goods and bads of all the teams so far.

P

1. Defense looked great
2. Lesean McCoy is still elite
3. Secondary looked much improved.

N

1. Offense has no chemistry, needs to click
2. Michael Vick has taken several steps backwards
3. Offensive line couldnt block at all.

Positives
--LeSean McCoy gets the job done. He had only 20 carries, but still managed 110 yards. He would have had more, but at least two 10+ yard runs were called back by a holding penalty.

--Our defense looks vastly improved, especially the LBs. DeMeco Ryans still has it, and Mychal Kendricks is going to be a solid player in the NFL.

--Our resilience showed, even in the midst of a crappy game. Vick had 4 picks, and nearly threw his 5th late in the game, but the team still pulled it together on a 91-yard game winning TD drive.

Negatives
--Our play calling was unbalanced. 60+ called pass plays, and only 23 called runs. That type of approach will not win many games for the Eagles.

--We were flagged for 12 penalties, resulting in a loss of over 100 yards. That will not cut it.

--Our offensive line was extremely inconsistent in pass blocking, but that may have been a product of the bad play calling.

Positives:

-- Defense looked fantastic all around. Front line looked stout. CBs looked really good. LB corp looks much improved

-- Henry's punting was amazing. Seriously. Laughing

-- Shady

Negatives:

-- Maclin being hurt every time he got hit, now possibly being out with a hip injury.

-- The offensive game plan was straight up atrocious. Pass 50+ times on a team that had one of the best pass defenses last year and the worst run defense last year.

-- Michael Vick. I'm tired of watching the same mistakes every week. This dude is just too stupid to learn from his mistakes. I'm convinced that's all there is to it. He's just too stupid.

Good:

Defense

Chaz Henry

DeSean looking like he wants to play again.

Bad:

Clearly Juan is to blame for something in week 1.

Wide-9.

Kurt Coleman had his helmet blown off, embarrasing.

Good

1. The defense looks as though they could be a top 5 in the NFL at seasons end if healthy.

2. Shady if given the ball can still be top 3 overall among RB!!!!

3. DRC can and will "IF" challenged set the eagles record for INT in a season.

Bad

1. Between Marty and Andy , Mike Vick won't last past 4 games in the 2012 season due to playcalling!

2. The Eagles are the NFC version of the Raiders when it comes to discipline and penalties and will break the NFL record for total penalty yds in a season!

3. Unfortunately Lesean McCoy will become a average run of the mill RB because Marty is an idiot who can not and will not feed the beast!!

Actually it was Bill Bradely with 11 Shocked which in hindsight is a tall order. If that does happen the Eagles FO better sign him long term by week 6 or it's going to cost them big time after the season!

How is he supposed to get 11 picks in 6 games?

Take a look again at my post Oland! Cool Obviously if DRC was going to come anywhere close to 11 Int he would have a decent amount (6 or 7) by mid season. If they don't sign him early it will cost them in the end!

+

DeMeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks. Ryans flat out ate Richardson's lunch. Trent will be having nightmares about him for weeks. Kendricks just looked very solid. He played well even for a vet let alone a rookie.

2 trips to the redzone, 2 TDs.

Secondary looked much better.

Bonus!: Fletcher Cox is a beast.


-

Lack of discipline - Penalties and turnovers.

Vick's (to put it politely) erratic play.

Up and down offensive line play.
