Maybe not today, but change in Philadelphia feels inevitable.
Early on Monday Howard Eskin of WIP Radio in Philadelphia tweeted that head coach Andy Reid was meeting with his coaching staff, and that it appeared that the Eagles were preparing to make Alphonso Smith Jersey a switch at quarterback.
"We worked on the approach, the fit, where your eyes should be, things like that," Smith said.
Dropping nine passes. Giving up a blocked punt that resulted in a touchdown. Fumbling in the red zone.
But it seemingly forced the Jaguars to open things up offensively.
And Gabbert looked sharp, completing 27 of 49 passes despite an injured non-throwing shoulder.
"Lay-ups, not 3-pointers that we're missing, just lay-ups," Mularkey said. "Nine drops. Those are lay-ups. Those are things we've got to be able to put the ball in the basket if we want to use the basketball as correlation to what we're doing here. There are lay-ups we're missing."
Coach Jim Schwartz pointed out on Monday that Johnson was off the field when Stafford threw his only interception against the Seahawks.
"Generally that's a play that gets a lot of attention to where Calvin is on that play. When he wasn't there it clogged up the rest of the play and we ended up getting intercepted,'' Schwartz said.
On the play before the game-winner Stafford targeted Johnson in the back corner of the end zone. The ball was high and Stafford said he threw it a little early because he was under pressure and could not risk getting sacked. It appeared to sail above Johnson's finger tips, looked like it was close but Johnson didn't see it until it was there. Stafford said it would have been an awesome catch, tough to make even for Johnson.
"He also made the first two catches in our 16-play scoring drive,'' the coach said. "We Amari Spievey Jersey have a lot of confidence in Calvin. He can find a way to deliver even if he's hobbled a little bit.''
The flight included horses for Chad Brown, Shug McGaughey, Mike Hushion, Michael Trombetta and Diane Alvarado. They were the lucky ones. Todd Pletcher's New York-based horses, including the unbeaten Shanghai Bobby in the Juvenile, were on a flight scheduled for Tuesday morning. It now appears Wednesday will be their earliest departure.
Markus Kuhn, an unproven rookie who didn't learn to play football until high school in his native Germany, became the unlikely solution. He has turned him into a capable fill-in, particularly against the run.
"We have good players, we have good schemes, try to do Brandon Pettigrew Jersey what's best against Calvin Johnson Jersey certain opponents. We can't call defenses. We have to just, we Chris Houston Jersey have to call our plays and react to what they do and make good decisions."
The New York Giants won a wild one in Dallas, forcing six turnovers and fending off a fierce Cowboys rally for a 29-24 victory. tengfeiling20121030
