Surprise surprise! The Eagles TD drive was kept alive by a ticky tack penalty on 3rd down. The more things change, the more they stay exactly the same.

Nevermind that Runyan had two hands full of Kerney's face mask on the pass to LJ Smith.

NEvermind that Levens' forward progression had been stopped on the TD run.

NO, it's the Eagles, and they're due, so just give it to them.

And now, looking back on last week, the Eagles' first TD drive was also kept alive by a penalty on 3rd down.


Hmmm, is there a pattern being established here?

Every time an Eagle makes a tackle, they jump up flexing their muscles like they just set the world record in the bench press.

Get a life.

What's not to understand? The stats don't lie. The Eagles convert more 3rd downs by penalty than any other team in teh NFL, and they do it by a landslide.

It happened last week, it's happened again this week, and it won't be the last time we see it.

It's like everyone feels so sorry for the choking-ass Eagles that they make the ticky tack fouls in their favor.

Yeah I think that forward progression call was kinda blatant.

you obviously have a few issues. everyone gets calls in their favor sometimes, against them others. i dont understand what makes you think there is some conspiracy to help the eagles win.

This I thought was a terrible call. Levens was going backwards or at the very least had been stopped, and an O-lineman pushed him in. I thought that wasn't legal anyways (or was that carrying someone in?).

I'm definitely pulling for the Falcons in this one.. and even I would say that this post is ridiculous. Get off the Eagles' jocks already!
