Yeah maybe not a "blitz" more of a beat down....no luck involved...although tuff times ahead for the Eagles without Westbrook.

I wouldn't call it lucky, either. The Steelers line got completely dominated (obviously) and the OC got completely outcoached. What is getting overlooked is how well the Steelers D played. Thanks to them, that game was in reach the whole time, if the offensive coaching staff would have been capable of making ANY adjustments at all.

I like the Eagles, but its really serious time to start bringing in Kolb, MaCnabb looked beat up, wasnt smiling so much, Westbrook, deserves a rest, not this way but , and Hunt really got his bell rung, they are beat up from Dallas, they will have tough times at least for the next couple games...I say get Kolb ready!!!

Lucky? Get yer head out of yer arse. The Eagles completely destroyed the Steelers. 9 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 1 interception and a safety. AND the Eagle offense completely had their way with their weakling AFC opponent until Westbrook went out.

The "BLITZ" was a play on words since the Eagles' blitz rattled the Steelers and their QB was sacked NINE times! How come when the Eagles win it's luck, but when others win it's skill?

While I love LeBeau's scheme and what it's predicated on, I have to say I was drooling a little at how blood thirsty Johnson's scheme played out. The pressure came from everywhere- DL, LB's, Satey, CB- yet still had good coverage down field. I hope LeBeau took a few notes. They brought a LB up in the A gapon one side of the center, and brought the saftey up on the other side. Wherever the extra protection was, that guy bailed out while the other shot the gap causing pure chaos. A thing of beauty. Steelers just kept staring at it and doing the same protections over and over.

Agreed they could use a break, the bye week will be helpful, but have to face Chicago next week and in the NFC east every game is a must win. I must say I disagree with your thoughts on McNabb. He is having a great start, get a nice lead on the Bears then put Kolb in..(dream senario)

How is one drive that resulted in a turn over having your way with another teams D? The TD drive was a good one, but the TD happened AFTER westbrook went out. For a "weakling defense" the Steelers sure did hold the eagles offense down. what was it.. int, td, fg, int, punt, punt, punt, punt, punt, fg...end of game. If that's an example of an offense "having their way" you are in for a long losing season. The eagles D won the game. end of story.

which is baffling to me. arians seems incapable of making adjustments. no draws, no screens, no running game...

Nabby is having a good start, best in what 3 years?? He looked tired yesterday, well the heat played a big part as well, they should beat Chicago but the defense as said above really did win the game, sacks, and that one great interception, they will have a fantastic year defensivly which will have them go to the playoffs!!!

It's funny how there are no Steeler fans on here shooting their mouth off. They must all be hung over on their Iron City beer or something. Bottom line is the Eagles held their own against the best team in the NFC on the road last week and arguably beat the best team in the AFC this week. Personally, I like where they are at right now. I don't think the game was a reflection on how bad the Steelers played but how dominant the Eagles defense was. Lets face it, no offense is gonna put up 38 points in every game. The offense will be fine. BYE BYE Steelers

Dont blame all those sacks on the O line, some of those sacks were because of good coverage downfield. It also didnt help that your run game was non existant yesterday.

If the Squeelers won, this thread would be 6 pages of trash talk from the Lehigh Valley bandwagon jumpers.

The Eagles have the number one run defense in the NFL.

bingo! if the run game doesn't exist and a team give up on it it lets the D t-off and go after the QB.
