Trust me...and mark my words...this OLine..and entire offense will be light years more efficient and productive when Foles comes in. Rookie or no rookie....what do people think, he's the first rookie to ever play the game? "Oh my God, he's a rookie...he can't possibly play"? That one move will go a LONG way in curing what ails this team....guaranteed. It's our only chance...were not doing anything like this. Period.

Oh yes that is a positive! May I ask how'd our o-line help us again???

I don't even believe the spin anymore....I just can't do it.

So what happens when Dunlap and Kelly have a bad game? I mean, weren't we hyping up Dunlap a few weeks ago? This whole o-line is inconsistent.

If you actually believe that was an improvement Chris you have lowered your standards. The falcons have 1 good pass rusher and he still got a sack while being double teamed (something our defense can't do). This line reminds me oh high school oline. No communication, letting people run free, not making it to the 2nd level.

Why are all these people calling for Foles. The guy looked good in preseason where teams do not blitz and are very vanilla so noone will know there scheme. The guy is not ready. Maybe a year or two he will be ready. If Foles start he will be hurt within 2 weeks top.

Putting Foles in behind this punch and judy line would be murder. At least Vick can get away now and then.

Herremans has been disappointing this year IMO. I thought he was the one guy we could depend on to be solid every game but he's been beat a lot this year.

The season's almost half over. At this point we need to see more than promise from the O-line. These guys know the system by now. It's time to start making hay or this season is done. That goes for the whole team. We need improvement in every phase of the game.

I don't see us doing much this year. Leave Vick in until he goes down.

wow Chris!! i cant believe you actually put your name on this article...( guess bo and dave smiling that you drew the short straw to put a positive spin on the worst O'line in the league)

With this atrocious O' line the season is over... Vick confidence has gone, ON EACH PLAY more or less Vick must get rid of the ball in 1-2 sec or gets killed. Before the bye weak i read an nfl article that Vick was hit over 100 times while all other qbs was below/close to 50 mark.
To gauge HOW BAD THE OLINE is look at the running game, the last 3 games has produced the lowest production over a 3 game period in over 10years ( with possibly the best back in franchise history...L. McCoy). We fix the O'line we gota half a chance, or the Saints game on MNF will be this years version of last years TNF game at seattle when we just knew the season was over...

There are few things worse than reading a post that is trying to polish a turd. I realize this is the team's website, but if any of you curating this site think fans are going to fall for it again, you're mistaken. If these players haven't quit, then the prognosis is even worse. It would mean that they truly have little to no talent. They weren't just beaten, they were humiliated.

This is the first week I can remember players calling out others. Shady challenging the team to show heart. Vick daring Reid to put in the rookie. To borrow a slogan from the bayou the eagles are about to enter, DO YOUR JOB! They need to suck it up and focus on doing the right things. We continue to wear our eagles pride on our sleeve and do our job as fans. We're critical but fair. I'll be going to the game Monday in New Orleans and I'll be wearing my green; doing my job. Now if the team can just do theirs.

This is a post about the O-Line, so unlike many responses put up here, I'll keep it to that:

This is the first week going back this year (preseason included) where I didn't spend the game lamenting the STARTING O-line. (If you recall Foles got better protection from the second unit than he did from the first). The improvement (against a decent, not great D-line) was undeniable.

BUT!

Let's not fail to notice the gameplan seemed to include a LOT of plays where Vick COULD dump it quickly, as opposed to every play didn't consist of two, three, or four 15-20 yard routes. This was a great move on the part of the coachingstaff. Veteran QB's are going to see fewer blitzes when that happens, and just about ALL if not all of the sacks the EAGLES have given up are to blitzing LB's and Safeties, not D-linemen.

We're getting there.

There is no positive spin to put on the o line performance, they sucked just like every game this season. I still maintain that play calling and the lack of a quarterback with a high football iq is the primary reason they look so bad. A quarterback who can diagnose defenses and get us out of a bad play prior to snapping the ball would improve the situation 10 fold. One of the single biggest factors in making Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and Drew Brees as good as they are is the abilty to diagnose and change into a positive play at the line of scrimmage and adjust protections. Vick has never had this ability and has failed to learn it still!

The only thing this offensive line can do is block out negative criticism

I agree with sliding wussie, Marty MORONwheg has avoided lots of scrutiny and is a CANCER to this team. He never puts it all together. He finally calls a balanced gameplan but takes NO shots down the field like the Falcons did. Anyone else notice, 3 for 3 now that when a balanced gameplan is called, Vick has 1 turnover that can be attributed to the cause of himself. Marty has lost us games due to his ineptness at calling a game and he should be the real culprit.

Atlanta has 8 tackles for a loss, 3 sacks, and 5 QB hits, and it's "promising".... gotta love the PE.com spin team. That was an awful display of run blocking. If we got the run game going, it would have made everything easier.
