An amazing display of ineptitude by both teams.

Stupid Reid should have benched McSlob for the 2nd half....he was completing more passes to the Bengals than to his own team!

When the passing game doesn't work...you go the ground game with Westbrooke and Buckhalter, but stupid Reid just told to McFlub to "keep firing"

Eagles have 2 quality backup QB's just sitting on the bench...but Reid and McNutz are so far up each others butts it's disgusting!!

Bird's should have won this game by 25 points!

The ground game hasn't exactly been working well either.

That is a great "philadelphia story"--- picked to win by more than a touchdown, and tie a 1 - 8 team ---- that is EARNING? I guess it is in philly-- the "Woulda,Shoulda, Coulda's"!!!

These rubes can't even beat a terrible team. Never won in Cincinnati EVER!! I loved donovan mcCRAP's face at the end--- it was great!! What a Colossal LOSER!!!

That depends entirely on your perspective. The Giants ground game is nothing short of amazing. Looks good from my living room.

They don't give the ground game a chance. The pass to run ratio is so lopsided in favor of the pass. Just because you are not breaking off 8 or 10 yard runs doesn't mean you abandon the run game. Buckhalter should be the starting running back for now. Clearly Westbrook is still playing through injury and its effecting his performance.

Westbrook is not a true RB. He's a receiver out of the backfield and that's their "running game". Always has been.

Thats an excellent observation. Brian Westbrook is not a ground and pound running back. If they were to rush him as much as say Washington rushes Portis his shelf life would drop significantly. Without a legitimate number one receiver it is too easy for defenses to key in on Westbrook. The memo is out on the Eagles. If you shut down Westbrook, you shut down their offense.

The problem is Reid and Co. The playcalling all season has been atrocious. There were at least three ocassions where it was 4th and 1 and they were scared to try and run it for the first. The guy calling in the plays, Marty Morningweigh, failed as a head coach in Detroit and is a failure as an offensive coordinator. McNabb had a bad game, but if he had quality receivers he would have a better chance. Reggie Brown is garbage, Kevin Curtis is a solid #2 or #3 receiver. LJ Smith is garbage and needs to go. Say what you want about Terrell Owens, but he was an elite receiver that got Philly to a Superbowl. Also, the Eagles can not run the ball. The Eagles need a big blocking FB and a bruising back like a BRandon Jacobs to pound people and complement Westbrook. This team will be lucking to win 2 more games this season. The Giants are unstoppable right now, as much as I hate to admit it.

It's time to get rid of Reid, Mortingweg, and McNabb.

What is more appalling?

1) The Eagles could only tie one the NFL's worst teams
2) McNabb not knowing the rules of overtime
3) Reid gets fatter each week

My pick for most appalling: I don't expect anything more out of the Eagles or McNabb, so the most appalling is how Reid gets fatter by the week. This man doesn't have the discipline to stay away from the cheese-steaks - how could he expect the team he leads to have the discspline to win?

Thank god for the NY Gaints, Eagles should have started a new era after the third attempt at a super bowl. T.O. was right McNothing is not a leader, under pressure he melts like butter in summer. Reid is a poor excuse for Jenny Craig, he's getting so fat it's effecting his ability to even speak, let alone coach.

I don't think McNabb is that great but I do think Brett Favre is one of the most overrated QBs in the history of the NFL.

The Phillies won the World Series, so in my opinion this is not worth getting upset over. I really don't care.

I agree. Westbrook is more of a wingback. He is too small to be a "ground and pound" guy. He is great in space and off tackle but that's it. He is pretty undersized, too. And if you need a back that can block, forget it. This is how teams become predictable, which is what the eagles are. A true back can stay in on 1st-4th downs and run, block, and catch. NFL teams have gotten away from this sort of player for the most part. having certain backs for certain plays and situations make you a predictable team. Defenses have become too smart for this type of offensive scheme. I'm all about putting your big guy in on 3rd and short, but your big guy also better be able to play on 1st and 10. The Giants are a perfect example of this. They rotate 3 backs, but all of them could play on any down, any situation becasue they are all great blockers.

Actually, Westbrook is a good blocker on the few plays he stays in the backfield to block. He's not going to decleat anyone back there with a crushing block but he gets the job done on most occassions.
