Damaris Johnson fumble on punt return.
Athletic LBs hitting Mike Vick and getting him off his game.
Team wearing red uniforms.
Andy Reid game manager at QB.
One WR burning the defense over and over.
Turnovers a problem for the Eagles. None for the opponent.
I’m talking about the Eagles-Cardinals from 2012, but that description fits last night as well. Last year the Eagles lost 27-6 in Arizona. That was a torturous game. An early fumble by Johnson led to a TD for the Cards and completely changed the feel of the game.
The score was 17-0 late in the half. Vick drove the Eagles inside the 5-yd line. He had open receivers, but failed to pull the trigger. He was strip-sacked and the ball run back 93 yards for a TD.
LB Daryl Washington was his nemesis last year. Justin Houston had that role last night.
Losing to Alex Smith vs losing to Kevin Kolb…neither is fun.
In Week 4 of 2012 the Eagles beat a Manning (Eli). This year the Eagles will face another Manning in Week 4 (Peyton). Winning that game would wipe away the frustration of the ugly Chiefs loss.
