It's the passer rating for our starting QB and playoff hopes.

Any given Sunday buddy, and I think the last couple of weeks Doug went pass heavy to get Foles reps and when they come out for the playoffs, he will pound the ball on the ground. I expect a different kind of game plan come playoff time, one that slows down the game, chews up the clock, and lets our OLine wear out whatever D we are facing. They have the guys to do it, three RBs that can pound the ball, and an OLine that works better when pulling and blocking for them. That should make play action work for Foles and let him manage the game rather than depend on him to be the play maker Carson is...he isn't that kind of QB.

But all that said, even if we are one and done I consider this season a full success and still think our best days are coming. Yeah it is rare to have a team as dominant as ours was until we took too many injuries, but it also rare to have a talent like Wentz under center. Some use Marino as a comparison, but the Dolphins did not build a good team around him, and the Eagles already have and I suspect will continue to do so. We still have a chance and I kind of like the fact that we are now considered underdogs going into the playoffs, this is Philly. wink.gif

One thing that was encouraging is that we only ran the ball four times in the second half, many times in an empty backfield.

Why?

Because that meant they really wanted to take a look at Sudfeld. The kid did pretty well, given he had our backup OL against their starters. A passer rating of 90, not too shabby. Put the starters in there with him today, and we win that game. He threw a better ball in the elements than Foles. Not even close.

If nothing else, they may give him some good reps for the quick hook if Floater Foles throws ducks again.

I agree that even a one and done is better than expected, but, I expected Foles to play at a slightly below average starter level, not the third string level he's played at.

Guys like us may never see another #1 seed with a coaching staff like this ever again.

Not that that's everything, but it was nice being in the catbird seat.

The team has been trending up in most all places. The personnel guys have been doing a great job and I'm not sure why that wouldn't include replacing coaches. This season isn't over yet. Let's see how it plays out before we call the grave diggers.
