    For parity, how about a thread on who gets credit for sacks. Pretty easy to see if one player actually makes the tackle but let's see if we can review whether it was a solo performance of someone else contributed significantly to the sack. Hopefully (can't see how) this won't turn in to a Carr thread.

    I solemnly swear that I will not be the one who converts this innocent thread into a hideous monster thread (which is a Carr thread). May intelligent and thoughtful posts fill this thread for months to come!

    Seeing how M. Williams is constantly getting (or has been getting ) double teamed there should be numerous occasions where a fellow lineman will pay dividends and reap the rewards for his play and freakish abilities.

    If i were to say that carr deserves the credit AKA blame for getting sacked... that would easily turn this into a carr thread but im not gonna do that because i am a carr:homer: so i will just say the better carr does it will give our defense time to rest so they may have more energy to get sacks on D:hides: did i clean that up? GO TEXANS

    But seriously i think that mario will be the reason for alot of our D LINE sacks even if he doesnt get many himself. I would like to see more of the peek and mario on the same side of the d line.

    totally agree...could spell a lot of trouble with our rotation on the line and having a fresh legs in there constantly....peek and babin should come up huge this season as well as weaver and TJ. I dont expect mind boggling numbers to be put up by mario himself but his presence will be felt and known. Our linebackers should also thrive with his constant double teams....I look for Demeco to come out like a rabid bull and continue his outstanding play as he did at Bama.

    i think mcnabb was responsible for his only sack. on dont give anyone of our d-linemen credit thats for sure. although babin did get pressure on a couple of occasions.

    Yeah, I agree with that. What happened to the freaking pass rush in this game?

    I could blame Carr for not reading the blitz coming , but that is a cat and mouse game... today I saw two of the sacks ..the eagles came with just too many men and other 2 Carr never saw what was cominig. the other one... I have to see the film again

    I saw that McNabb's sack was in the fourth quarter, but I was out of the room. What happened?

    I was listening and heard McNabb actually slid to take a sack to avoid a hit.

    I wonder who would have gotten him if he had not slid, or was he bullrushed?

    Rememer in Indy last year when Carr went down on his own to avoid getting demolished by Frenney? He got blasted for that, McNabb slides and its a "smart play"....
    In something acctualy relevant to this thread, I have no idea who to give the credit to for that sack...

    What he said and on the film - I want to see if Carr tripped - or was tripped as it looked like his foot was held and thus why he fell down, but I only got one look at it with no Tivo and fox didnt replay it.

    It ran into one of the top O-lines(and offenses) in football.

    Dude, there were 5 Eagles sacks. Apparently you missed more of them than you saw...

    LOL.

    2 + 2 + 1 = 5

    Don't take this personally, but learn to read next time before criticizing someones ability to count.
