    If you can't beat a fringe playoff team at home in the first round of the playoffs you really never had a shot. You play to win the game, HELLO.

    So now we've added the Eagles to the teams the Patriots don't want to face. :)

    When he nailed the iced one, I figured "man, he crushed it with a not that great snap. Now they've had practice, he'll drill the next one even better."

    Unreal.

    Foles and Philly fit. If I could get 2 firsts from Wentz, I’d let him go.

    as a result of that bullshit, every WC team who won this week will play their next game at the same time of week as the WC games.

    I was hoping you would have an idea of what happened, because I thought the timing looked all messed up too, compared to the first kick. Still can't believe how close it came and didn't go in. You almost wish he would have just shanked it or had it blocked than for that to happen.

    Give me the Rams and Cowboys over then, and I’d take the Saints too if the game weren’t in a dome.

    So yes you should execute a 44 yard FG.... but Nagy not taking a TO when the Eagles had the ball was awful. They could have had 40 more seconds (probably 30 since they couldn't have taken a TO after the Robinson catch.

    nope, it's Dallas @ LA Rams.

    as far as this game... Mack was pretty well-contained. one of his signature huge plays and the Bears win.

    Trubisky played well for him but he could have had long TDs with perfectly thrown balls a couple times instead of just long gains with this receivers falling making the catch. another TD and they win.

    ridiculous the Eagles are alive after being 6-7. the Rams should have taken care of them week 15, fuckers.

    The Dude abides!

    Thanks, and this is well stated. The timing was trash and that will never be written by the history books. Much as I have my concerns and drawbacks of the power move there, kind of get doing so since he was possibly concerned (understandably so!) about the kick being blocked. Given the circumstances, miracle it was that close to being a successful try. I've seen lesser kickers do less with a closer distance, and similar intial screwups.

    And yeah, selfishly, I'd rather see that go wild like Walsh against the Seahawks at TCF or blocked so people could see it was more a team fuckery problem.

    Chicago outplayed Philly.

    Probably part ofthe reason NO is a 9 point favorite.

    I honestly thought Foles looked like dogshit for most of the night but he did make a really sweet adjustment in his throwing motion on the final TD pass to Tate and still threw it accurate.

    But it's on the Bears that philly was even in a position to make that throw matter. They squandered a fuckton of opportunities.

    it's also worth pointing out again, since the Bears lost by a single point, that the Bears had a great chance at a TD to end the first half, but the refs' early whistle and a dogshit rule made it an incomplete pass.

    Eagles totally lucked out.

    The early whistle helped the Bears if anything. It would’ve been Eagles ball if it wasn’t blown.

    fine. but the rule shouldn't maintain an incompletion when it's a clear catch.

    So basically this is what killed the game for Chicago, right here in the third quarter:

    1-10-PHI 49 (6:37) PENALTY on CHI, Defensive Too Many Men on Field, 5 yards, enforced at PHI 49 - No Play.

    1-5-CHI 46 (6:15) (No Huddle) D.Sproles left tackle to CHI 43 for 3 yards (R.Smith).

    2-2-CHI 43(5:32) (Shotgun) N.Foles pass incomplete deep left to J.Matthews. PENALTY on CHI-P.Amukamara, Defensive Pass Interference, 33 yards, enforced at CHI 43 - No Play.

    1-10-CHI 10 (5:26) (Shotgun) N.Foles pass short middle to D.Goedert for 10 yards, TOUCHDOWN Bears only had 10 man on the field

    That interference call was absolute bullshit and while I don’t dislike Collinsworth like some do here, his endorsement of that call was terrible.

    The 'drop that was a catch but wasn't because no one recovered the fumble' hurt the bears
    The PI on Prince when Matthews was grabbing him and the the next series where the PI wasn't called for the Bears really changed the course of the game.

    Plus Foles magic on the end of game FG

    Also that TD drive should have been a 3 and out but unnecessary roughness penalty on 3rd down on the Bears kept it alive.

    Maybe the whistle blew but the back judge picked up a live football, which forced the referee into a compromised review decision.

    I miss the FlyEaglesFly Pats fans of two weeks ago when they beat Houston.

    Just in case you all missed it, that last second FG was tipped by Trayvon Hester of the Eagles. There are slow mo replays on the twitter if you’re interested.

    The Yankees and their miscreant fan base.

    But we need not rank order hated teams and fanbases. I will easily stipulate to anything you want about Ravens fans. I was at the Monday night game there in 2007. What a hideous lot of life forms.

    But now, in 2019, I have the unique pleasure of living on a block in northern NJ with six, count em six, rabid Eagles fans on it.

    My hatred knows no bounds.

    And yes, thanks Nick Foles for the help with the bye. That was nice. Now go fuck yourself.

    Cody Parkey has earned ~$7.5mm playing football over the past five seasons. Nobody will shed any tears for the guy because thats a lot of money. However the reality is that he is 26 years old, will likely be looking for his next career soon and is going to be a big goat for a lot of Bears/NFL fans. Meanwhile, there were a ton of other issues with this game including clock management, officiating and the overall Bears play-calling. But when tomorrow morning rolls around, Parkey is likely to be the main reason that Chicago didn't advance per sports media etc.

    To be fair, they aren't the only ones. I seem to recall Boston fans blaming certain athletes and managers when their teams fell short as well, even though their blunders were just part of a series of plays/decisions that lost games.

    To be transparent, I hate the concepts of "goats" (except in the sense of TB12 being the GOAT) and choking. Single plays or decisions don't win or lose games. Scoring carries the same mathematical weight whether its at the start or end of a contest. Yet fans and the media tend to focus on those last missed scoring opportunities versus the earlier ones. I get it and I know its not going to change. I just don't agree with it - its a me problem.

    I don't think this is true, unless we're talking about different things. Yes a FG is 3 points no matter when it's kicked, but game situation matters.

    A team down 2 with 11 minutes to play in first quarter misses a FG they still have a nearly 50% chance of winning. A team down 2 with 30 seconds to play misses a FG they have essentially a 0% chance of winning.

    But, I do get your overall point, which is that this loss isn't just on a missed FG. Or, as it turns out, a blocked one.

    You are correct - I wasn't clear. When a team scores does change the chance of victory. But three points are three points etc.

    Like them or hate them. They are one of the most loyal fan bases in sport. Even when they stink, they show up, sell the place out and cheer like every game is a big game.

    Nah, it's at the very least an "us" problem. Drives me nuts too.

    If the boneheaded decision at the end of the game was the most significant play or decision made that evening, like leaving Pedro in, I think it's fair. But I'm more bitter about Asante Samuel not hauling in the INT than I am about the helmet catch, to take a tough example.
