Chaos, Overreactions, and A Tale of Two Halves: Random Thoughts While Watching the Eagles Opener

Well, that was more stressful than I anticipated. Below are random notes I took down while watching that roller coaster of a game. I would not completely call it comprehensive, and there might be a spelling error or two but thought some people might enjoy it so going to publish in raw form. More stuff on the way:

Let’s do the damn thing.

If you like improved third down defense, give me a hell yeah!

Holy shit Darren Sproles

ZACH ERTZ MY DUDE!

Okay yeah that an ugly series of events, but we’ve seen this movie before in openers.

Couple missed opportunities the last two drives. Hopefully doesn’t cost them.

Oh LeSean, you so nice.

McCoy and Sproles on the field at the same time. Gonna be watching that closely.

Not necessarily nervous but things less than ideal here

If a Jaguars receiver is going to make this interesting, can it at least be Marqise Lee or Allen Robinson instead of undrafted Allen Hurns?

So many Nick Foles overreactions right now, but this admittedly is not what I imagined.

Bless you, Donnie Jones. Way to switch the field.

DONNIE JONES OUTCHEA!

My survival league probably nervous right now. 36 of 63 people have the Eagles. I do not.

17-0. The Eagles get ball in the second half. Just get it to 17-10 here.

HALP PLEASE

WELP

Evan Mathis down. People gave him crap about wanting a new contract, but that’s why. Gotta get your $$$ when you can.

Nick Foles is going to die.

DARREN SPROLES IN DA BUILDING. LET’S PLAY, BABY!

Thank you for going for it, Chip.

Great field position thanks to the defense and Sproles. Let’s cash in.

Special teams looking so nice between Maragos and Sproles

Really wanted to just punch them in the mouth there but that’s okay.

McCoy quietly is putting together some yards. Hopefully a big run coming similar to Sproles earlier.

Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry hungry. Huge third and 10 here for the defense.

Third down defense so much better so far. Phew

Holy crap, Brandon Graham. Whoa

That’s why I loved Marqise Lee coming out of college. What a catch.

Fourth quarter. 17-14 Jags. Breathe in, breathe Haiout.

Eagles don’t necessarily need to score on this drive but first downs huge. Switch the field.

HAI ZACH ERTZ

I am stupid, and I apologize. You go, Cody Parkey.

THAT’S EAGLES BALL! Gimme that, ref!

JEREMY MACLIN, WELCOME BACK. LOVE YOU!

Where my Nick Foles first half haters at? Identify yourselves, dawgies.

Ballsy call by Gus Bradley. Maybe the wrong one but respect the hustle.

Parkey hits this and the Eagles are going to survive. 24-17 at the two minute warning.

Lost in my Survival Pool with the Bears but this thing is over. Not a ton of style points, but sweet second half here.

This might be the worst thing I have ever written but phew. Exhale.
