Philly@Dallas: A Few Thoughts

This one didn’t leave me sick like several of the games last year did.  But it was still exhausting.  The first half was such a constant adrenaline rush I wonder what the locker rooms were like at halftime.  Could anyone calm down?

Anyway, some things I liked and didn’t like.  First, this team has now put up 38 and 37 points in consecutive weeks.  I don’t think we need to worry about scoring this year.

However, we might need to worry about the defense, obviously.  You can’t repeatedly give up the big plays they did.  And some of the matchups were just puzzling — Dawkins on Owens in the red zone?  That’s not fair.

And it’s time to pull the plug on Considine.  Whether you put him on special teams or in the defensive backfield the guy has a bullseye on him.  He can’t make a play.  He’s slow, undersized, and he makes mental mistakes.  He’s not an NFL player.  Give it up Andy.

Back to the defense in general — you have to be pretty pleased with the run defense, which looked solid for most of the game and understandably wore down a little at the end (but still got a stop when they absolutely had to).  Quentin Mikell continues to be a beast who tackles anything near him.  He laid a couple of nasty shots on Barber, too.

There were some terrible drops by Jackson, Lewis, and Baskett.  Jackson took points off the board on two occasions by not securing the football.  And I’m not even talking about “the play”.

McNabb looked freaking awesome for most of that game, but the indecision and the fumble are inexcusable for a veteran.  You know me, and you know I’m in the bag for McNabb.  This team is going to be fine this year, but he can’t be making those mistakes.

O-Line pass blocking:  dominating.  O-Line run blocking:  average.

There is absolutely nothing scary about playing in Texas Stadium for this team.  This could be nice in the playoffs.

More on the way… gotta make a couple of things happen at work.

Update [9:09 AM ET] –  The special teams coverage units were obviously atrocious, but Quentin Demps almost caught Felix Jones on that TD sprint.  That is impressive.
