And we don't have a QB problem.

However, our DC better figure it the fuck out.

Nice job by Foles and great job by the ST's.

And we have a first round bye.

I'll take it.

This was like a throwback game to our 2015 secondary. We got the win and Foles looked very good, so if they're going to get a wake-up call it might as well be today. They got beat several times deep and couldn't tackle to save their lives, but the rest of the D looked fine as always.

Can't ask for much more from Foles. If you get 4 TDs out of your backup you're doing fine.

The defense on the other hand... what a clusterfuck

Special shout out to Ronald Darby for getting burnt all night

Eli had one of his random hot days. That just happens from time to time.

Ummmm yeah, they 'happen' whenenever secondaries forget how to cover and tackle.

Meanwhile, 34-0 Rams over Seattle in Seattle - at the half!

You got that right. This team won't last a minute in the playoffs if the D continues to play like that. This wasn't the fault of the DC, this was on the players not executing properly. It's as if they completely forgot how to tackle, for at least a couple of weeks now.

D is awful & has been steadily going down hill since Darby's return. Why? Love to know.

Great job by Foles but we won't be winning shit unless someone figure's out wtf is going on with the defence. No pressure, got a couple more games to work on it...

Sorry but there was a lot of blame on the defensive coaching. The past 2 weeks at least they've tackled poorly. That's definitely partially coaching.

They need to get their act together or they'll have a short playoff run...

Our whole secondary has Michael Lewis Syndrome. What is that, you ask? It's when you get burned on double moves because you're watching the QB and not your man, you take poor angles to try and make a play and most importantly, it's when you have a chance to make a play you go for the highlight reel hit (and whiff) instead of just wrapping your guy up and taking him to the ground.

They were set up by the slants.

Completely wiffing on tackles isn't on the coach. Allowing them to do it repeatedly and letting them stay in the game is, however, and I have no doubt a couple of our DB's were talked to about that after the game.

If I recall this sloppiness started in the Bears game. Then they got chewed up by Russell Wilson...but everyone said it's Russell Wilson so no one bats so no one bats an eye at that. After that they get lit up by the Rams. But oh, it's the Rams and they have the best offense in the league! No cause for alarm there. And now comes Eli and the 30th ranked offense in the league playing rookies and 2nd stringers due to all their injuries. And our defense gets lit up again!! Does this look like a trend to anyone but me?

I don't know how much of it is coaching and how much is on the players but it's gonna be a really short post season if they don't get it fixed.

I think our front 7 has covered up for the secondary this entire year, and it can't last forever. Also, Darby has only been playing for a month - he shows flashes of greatness, and then follows it up by getting burned worse than Asomugha. Yesterday I was reminded of Jurevicius running 70 yards against us because of shitty tackling as well.

Who woulda thunk that one week after the MVP went down, our big worry is the defense?
