Glad that they won, obviously, but the short passing game has been hideous. Short passes with no chance to gain anything

Hurts runs, completely ineffective (other than sneaks)

I was so annoyed how little they used Swift last week - was thrilled to see him have a big night. I wonder if Sirianni said something to Johnson after the 2nd qtr drive that stalled with passes. That was a quick offensive strategy change

11 days until the next game - hopefully they get a few guys back. Maddux sadly just can't stay healthy

I HATED the prevent defense on the last Viking TD. I know the odds of them winning was small, but don't make it easy for them

The Jefferson fumble was the key play - nice to get some good luck

Another concern from the game - Reddick has been a non-factor 2 games in a row

How long until his thumb is healed?

One last thing

Why did Sipposs not punt that ball through the endzone at the end? Ringo made the tackle so non-issue, but why even give them a chance for a punt return?

I'm concerned about the scheme, but.for today, they had a ton of injuries. They wound up missing 5-6 starters.

Yeah.

Maybe its the pass rush, the coverage. injuries. Something is a miss there.

True. Sipposs has been pretty decent though these first two games, it seems like to me. They are going to have to sign a punter to active roster soon. Sipposs has one game of eligibility left to be elevated. What will they do?

Eagles’ DB Avonte Maddox is feared to have torn his pectoral during Thursday night’s win over the Vikings, per source. He is expected to get a second opinion; if it is confirmed, he would be out for the season.

We should definitely declare the season over

Just a shame - he can never stay healthy. He will probably be another Jordan Hicks - go elsewhere and stop getting injured
