From Domo at Philly.com:

The Eagles were perfect in the red zone, converting all four of their trips inside the 20 into touchdowns.

This is an offense that finished 24th in red-zone production last season. Through nine games this season, they are second, with a 72.4 touchdown percent. In their last four games, they have converted 11 of 12 red-zone trips into TDs.

Wentz was 3 for 4 with two more red-zone TD passes Sunday (to Jeffery and Clement). That gives him 15 this season. He is one of just two quarterbacks – the Titans’ Marcus Mariota is the other — without an interception or sack in the red zone.

Wentz has spread the ball around in the red zone. Eight receivers have catches. Six have at least one red-zone TD catch, including four – Ertz (6), Jeffery (3), Clement (2) and Nelson Agholor (2) – with at least two.

I think this reflects on two major characters of the offense.

First, the genius of play design. Pedey and company have been nothing if not masterful in their creativity inside the red zone.

And second, the prepareness of Wentz, trusting what he is seeing, recognizing the mismatches and executing.

The days where I'm shouting in Portuguese at my monitor, "não fodas esta merda, caralho!" seems like a distant memory. Now when they're in the red zone I just mumble, "Força, filho da puta - põe o ponto final nessa merda." And then I get a beer.

Even though Pedey and Reich were less than stellar in their playing days, it does not mean that they don't know what really works and their experience as QBs is certainly playing a huge role in CW's growth. When I see him go out there, scan the D, call a play out, and then take advantage of the weak spot he saw, it feels like I am watching a seasoned vet, not a 2nd year QB. And the really beautiful part is that he is still learning, meaning he has yet to peak.

Red zone efficiency, 3rd down conversions. It's amazing what a difference doing these things well can make. Not to mention stopping the opponent on 3rd down, something we didn't do at all last year.

"Finish this off you sons of bitches."

That's pretty good.

Some words don't translate, but that's not bad.

Does it remind you a little of P Manning? You just assumed he was going to win the chess match with the guy calling the D.

A little? I'd say more than that!

Appreciate the bump, I'd say it's obvious your English is a hell of a lot better than my Portuguese. Hell, it's probably better than my English.....

The word "caralho" is easily our favorite word in our entire lexicon.

Literally it means cock. But it is so much more in contextual use. There's really no situation where it can't be used in any grammatical sense... verb, noun, adjective - whatever.

Between brethren, it's a term of affection. It's also the perfect word to curse the gODs or luck as an expression of surprise or petulance! I think a fair equivelant is the Brits love for their use of "cunt"!

It's the perfect expletive. Learn to pronounce it and you're practically speaking fluent Portuguese with a single word.
