Just some things I noticed from yesterdays game
Wentz is just good...like good to where I cant really put it into words. There was one point, late in the game, where Wentz went deep to Matthews on like a 3rd and 4 and we were already up 34-3…they originally called it a catch and then waived it off….anyway, Wentz comes over to the bench and Im like 3 feet from him, Daniel, Doug and they’re talking about the play….Doug rolls and Wentz says to Matthews “As soon as I saw the D I was throwing.”…this is a kid who had a week as the starter before the season and 3 games in he can call/ change his own plays…its unreal. Baldy (or maybe it was Anthony) said something this morning and it was just a simple question….”Have we even seen his best?” You cant possible say “Yes”, right? I mean its 3 starts in with one week to prepare as a starter….the answer has to be “no” and that’s scary
Nice to see the running game pick up in the second half as well. I don't want to sound too much like a homer but when you just watch Smallwood, he seems to have "it" as well. Some great runs and moves by him.
When you're on the field you just have such a deeper respect and appreciation for Sproles. I have no clue how a man his size, playing the position he does, does so well.
Barner looks like he bulked up more from last season to this season as well. He looked very good running the ball.
The OL did AMAZING. I also love them adding the extra OL on some if the early downs.
Not just with the defense but you can just see what good coaching can do to a team. It's literally night and day. If I were Lurie I'd give guys like Swartz and Reich a blank check and tell them they're not allowed to leave lol
That may have been Malcolm Jenkins' best game as an Eagle. There was nothing he didn't do great yesterday.
The drive late in the game when the Steelers went for it on 4th and 5 after the running into the kicker--Did we almost pick all 4 of those plays off?
Brandon Graham again....jeez this guy is great against the run and rushing the QB.
The "kill shot" after Graham recovers the fumble on the sack was awesome. In fact, being up as much as we were and choosing to throw instead of running the ball knowing the D knows you're running is awesome as well.
The tackling yesterday was incredible.
The chants were great too. The best was the "beat the traffic" as all the Steeler fans were leaving
Just a great win and a great feeling heading into the bye.
