Yup. RGIII did not blow any coverages, etc. Many players looked bad. Everyone looked uninspired, players and coaches alike.

On a side not, I am sorry to announce that JoeReverend is no longer with us. He was unfortunately stoned to death as most false prophets are.
I still have faith, Preacher Joe. It's a long season.

They started out at Bracket Room (new sports bar in Clarendon) then went down to A-town, that's where I saw them. Fred Davis goes there a lot. They all seem like good guys, but CMON MAN! its the season opener on Monday night, take a night off.

I got you all set up for next week!

Brothers and Sisters! Today is the day in which our team rides forth and breaks through the bonds that have held it back ... the bright lights of Lambeau Field will burn away our disappointment of years past, shine brilliantly upon the team's accomplishments, and light the way through the season!

Yay, though we have walked through the valley of disappointment lo these many years, now is the time of our team's rebirth! Let your joy ring forth! Shout out your faith in RGIII, Trent, Morris, Fletcher, Orakpo, Shanahan & the rest of these warriors of the grid iron ... no more shall we reside at the bottom of power polls, no more shall others mock or success as fleeting, no more must we rend our garments with the expectation of loss!

Though long suffering, we shall be rewarded by our faith! Henceforth we shall expect to win, our team will find new and innovative ways to maintain our faith and succor our thirst for success. Our voices will be free to shout our team's successes and to expect more!

Be thankful and rejoice ... today is a new day and the dawn of a new era. Our fanaticism will be reborn, our faith restored. Drink in the joy, relish the ecstasy, let the waves of victory roll over and through you as you proclaim the power of our team!

Hallelujah my brothers and sisters! A new day is upon us. A new future awaits. Rejoice!!

My chest tightened up after Robert took that hit and reached for his knee. Was very gimpy getting up, but he eventually played "through it" and the Skins rallied. Still not convinced that he's 100%, but he's pretty darn close and as Skinsguy said, he'll look sharper and perhaps move around better vs. Green Bay.

It's one game. It's a long, long season. Still think this team is on the right track. The Eagles jumped on us early because of turnovers, yet somehow we managed to make a game of it.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

Well, a bit of a depressing start to the season -- getting crushed in the first half at home by a division rival on national TV. We rallied and made a game of it, but lots of things have to be corrected. it is a long season, and every year, we win one I think we're not likely to win, and lose at least one that I would have predicted a W -- let's hope that defines our first two weeks and that we pick up a W in Green Bay.

I thought Perry Riley was outstanding -- he and Kerrigan were really strong; Fletch and Rak were pretty quiet and that is a little disconcerting. To me, the biggest positive was Riley's play -- he was everywhere. Hankerson looked solid as well, and I thought Moss was his reliable self as well. Some positives to build upon, but we need to do it soon. Green Bay is going to be a challenge; we ought to beat the Raiders, and then we also have Detroit before the bye and they really did a number of the Vikings (even holding AP to a very modest rushing total). We really have to get two wins before the bye somehow -- we cannot dig ourselves a hole like we did last year, and the bye is so early that we won't have any time to regroup as the season wears on.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

I put OTHER because it was all the above and then some. Not that they have to go back to the drawing board or anything. If they can clean up some things during the week, have a better defensive game plan in place for a "more familiar" GB offense, I would expect to come home with a hard fought W next week.

It was encouraging to see the Defense make the necessary adjustments to slow down that Philly offense, and it was encouraging to see the offense clean up their act as the game progressed. Unfortunately the early mistakes and miscues put us in too deep a hole to overcome.

Still a chance to go 3-1 for the first quarter of the season...

It was a balancing out against the chicken little's we have here (myself included at times) JoeRev was the yin to the yang in these here parts.

Seriously though there were to many mistakes in the first half, and they didn't get the offense fired up until the 4th quarter.

IF III played in preseason and was injured we would have tarred and feathered Shanny. Its week one, 15 to go and the NFC East is up for grabs. I still believe it is our division.

One positive note that I haven't seen discussed much is I thought Amerson played a quality game. Looks like he will be a good corner in the NFL.

Did you actually see them drinking alcohol or were they just there?

I don't agree with this. I'm glad RG3 didn't play in the preseason; the risk of injury wasn't worth it. And it's true that it wouldn't have helped with other players' miscues. But playing RG3 for a half or so in preseason would have helped him "shake the rust off". To be honest, he looked terrible in the first half. He wasn't making the right reads, and he was missing receivers; basically, it looked like he was playing "stiff". He just didn't look comfortable. And that's because this was his first game action since the playoffs.

Playing in the preseason wouldn't have prevented the team's bad play, but it certainly would have helped RG3's game in the first half. And if RG3 would have played well, it would have partially negated the bad play of the other players; instead of a 19 point deficit at half-time, it would have been more like a 10 point deficit. The quarterback is the most important player on the field, and if he would have played well the whole game, it would have gone a lot better for everyone.

This Eagles' game was his preseason, and he will come out firing on all cylinders against Green Bay. Philly will be but a distant memory when we come out victorious.
