    Is probably going to have 700 total yards and 8 tds against us.

    Figured it would be interesting to discuss strategies for our worst defense in history to try and contain the most mobile, accurate, non-mistake making qb in the nfl. One interception this year. ONE! Lightning fast, extends plays. How do you defend that? Have cushing spy him every play? The longer the play, the harder for our craptacular secondary to stay on receivers. I'm just not seeing how this is supposed to work...enlighten me?

    Break his legs and we have a chance.

    Break Kolb's legs too and we will win!

    Pollard just needs to give him the Tom Brady treatment on the first play.

    Safety help over the top... but then again I've been calling for that all season.

    Defend the deep pass and let them run/dink and dunk down the field. Swarm the ballcarrier and constantly try and strip the ball.

    On offense, hold onto the ball. Run Foster Run. Throw to Foster, get AJ involved and score some points. Schaub needs to get rid of the ball quickly.

    I think it will actually be a pretty close game.

    Did you guys watch Playbook on the NFL network? Our safeties are taking atrocious angles away from where the ball is being thrown. It looks like they're trying to AVOID getting to the ball.

    And in a previous thread, I also mentioned the technique our secondary currently employs. It's absolutely terrible and leaves us in a bad position. This is all on David Gibbs.

    With that said, the only way to contain Michael Vick is good gap management. The players need to stop trying to do too much and trust each other as a team. Do NOT overpursue. The speed of the Eagle's offense will certainly take advantage of that.

    I think it was on MNF a couple nights ago they were saying that the Eagles red zone offense isn't all that great. Anyone know about our red zone defense? Even if/when they make big plays let's hope we can get them down and force some FGs.

    BTW, how much do you hate life if you are Rusty Smith? If you can't light up this defense, you don't belong in the NFL. Spending all week licking your chops getting ready for the Texans secondary, then getting shut out? Heartbreak.

    I was thinking the same. This thread makes it seem like this is an Iggles board.

    Michael Vick is an extraordinary NFL quarterback and a turd for a human being. I don’t like him a damn bit and I hope Mario abuses him like AJ did Innegan.

    Let's not even play the game, then... Seriously, the Texans shouldn't have made the trip this morning and saved the money, passing that savings on to us season ticket holders.... :kitten:

    Arian Foster.

    Run him 40 times, keep the Texans offense on the field.

    I don't wish injury on anyone, but I don't consider Vick a person, so I hope he shatters every bone in his neck while playing us.

    Just saying.
