Alex Henery cannot come back next year. His career long is 51. He cost the Eags this game. And he never kicks touchbacks. Teams always have great field position.
No the Eagles defense cost them that game. Game on the line and the Saints ran it right down their throats. All night. QB sneak got 3 yards a pop tonight. Was their even a TFL? Anyone saying this team needs anything other than someone in the front 7 is out of their mind.
As soon as I heard all the talk about the cold and the Saints not playing well on the road, I knew this would be the outcome. Yeah, unexpected outcome on the Eagles season, but this game... seen this outcome too many times before. At least Reid lost in classic Reid fashion today.
Been saying that all year, his kick offs are pathetic and no leg over 45 yards. Cost us the game tonight.
Special teams in general, outside of Donnie Jones, need help. Kicker and returning big time. Safety, corner, and linebacker all must be upgraded. I'd like to see Maclin walk and be replaced by someone bigger and more durable, too.
I asked for defense and special teams to step up, both failed ****ing miserably.
Blocked FG can change it all
The defense won the turnover battle. I blame the offense for doing nothing on those first couple of drives in the first half and that drive where Foles takes a sack he doesn't need to take that leads to the missed FG.
As others have said, this team exceeded expectations, and this is Kelly's first year in the NFL, but this was a hard way to end the season when they had so many chances throughout the game that they didn't take advantage of.
