There is allot of bad but well deserved criticism of the Eagle defense in yesterday’s game with New Orleans. The Saints have a great offense we expected them to score allot of points. There were three plays that turned the game away from Philadelphia.
1. At the midpoint of the first quarter, Philadelphia had moved to a first down at the Saints 20. Our boys lost 10 yards stemming from a blitz and a penalty. Alex Henry missed a 48 yard field goal.
2) Third quarter. Riley Cooper, all alone, dropped a pass at the Eagle 38. Had he been more exacting, Cooper would have gone a long way. The score here was 20 to 14.
3) The Eagles early in the fourth quarter had to settle for a field goal after getting a first inside the New Orleans. Alex Henry kicked a chip.
