Vick tips hat to Bills

Posted by Chris Brown on October 9, 2011 – 10:28 pm

After a four-interception performance and a 66 passer rating in the loss to the Bills, Michael Vick could only tip his hat to Buffalo and the job they did on Sunday to beat the Eagles.

“I give a lot of credit to Buffalo, they came out and they did their job,” Vick said. “I think we did a lot of things that were positive.  We put ourselves in position to score and make plays, and then at times we didn’t. 

“I give a lot of credit to them for what they did.  They didn’t really do anything outside of what we thought they were going to do, they just played their game.”

Bills like Oct. 9th

Posted by Chris Brown on October 9, 2011 – 4:09 pm

The Bills have a propensity for winning on Oct. 9th. Take a look.

Buffalo has now won five straight games on Oct. 9th counting their win over Philadelphia Sunday (31-24). Three of those previous wins on Oct. 9th came against Miami (’83 @ Mia, ’94 vs. Mia, ’05 vs. Mia.). The other victory came against Indianapolis in ’88.

Eagles speed dictates personnel

Posted by Chris Brown on October 9, 2011 – 9:04 am

The collective speed of the Philadelphia Eagles skill position players on offense is a real weapon not only in terms of making plays, but in terms of dictating personnel groupings for the opposing offense.

That according to Bills head coach Chan Gailey.

“You do have to try to match up,” Gailey told Buffalobills.com. “You can’t just say, ‘Hey we’ll put our defense out there and whoever they put out there we’ll match up.’ Because you can’t match up. This is one of the most explosive, if not the most explosive offense in the NFL.”

49ers say Eagles gave up

Posted by Chris Brown on October 7, 2011 – 12:11 pm

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore when asked about his team’s 21-point comeback victory over the Eagles last week (24-23) said he felt the Eagles gave in when the Niners came back in the game.

In an interview on ESPN’s First Take, Gore said the following.

“I think playing that second half and the way we came out, the Eagles didn’t want to play no more,” Gore said. “We just kept pounding and kept pounding and making plays and we kind of knocked the fight out of them,” Gore said.

The Eagles have had their problems putting up points in the fourth quarter. They’ve got a single touchdown in the final stanza thus far this season, which is second lowest in the league. In fact they have not scored at all in the fourth quarter in each of their last three games.

Watkins to start for Eagles

Posted by Chris Brown on October 5, 2011 – 9:31 am

According to a Delaware News Journal report, the Eagles will be making a change at their starting right guard position, where they’ll be inserting their first-round pick into the lineup.

Eagles first-round draft choice, Danny Watkins, will reportedly make his first career start at right guard in place of Kyle DeVan. Watkins was working with the first unit for the Eagles all summer in training camp until DeVan was picked up off waivers by Philadelphia and stepped right into the starting lineup at the beginning of the season.

So the Eagles are likely to have two changes on their offensive line Sunday against the Bills. Watkins at right guard and King Dunlap at left tackle in place of the injured Jason Peters (hamstring).

Bills not expecting respect

Posted by Chris Brown on October 4, 2011 – 8:55 am

When the Bills host the Eagles on Sunday, they’re not expecting to get much respect from a Philadelphia team with a lot of star power. Following their loss to Cincinnati they feel they’ve got to go out and earn respect.

“They’re going to come in thinking; ‘Oh yeah, same old Bills, we’re a better team than they are, the names on our team are better than their team’s,’” said Stevie Johnson. “It really doesn’t matter to me; I’m just looking forward to playing against one of the top corner backs in the league in Nnamdi (Asomugha).”

“In this league you earn respect every week,” said head coach Chan Gailey. “You don’t stay the same, you go up or you go down. You very seldom stay the same. The respect that we have throughout the league, I believe we did (go down). When you lose, that happens. So you’ve got to go earn it back.”

Eagles pass rusher injured

Posted by Chris Brown on October 3, 2011 – 8:25 am

The Bills lost left tackle Demetrius Bell to a shoulder injury Sunday and at this point his prognosis is not known. If he can’t play rookie Chris Hairston is expected to line up at left tackle. Philadelphia’s best pass rusher, Trent Cole, would normally be the opponent in that one-on-one matchup, but that might not be the case.

That’s because the Eagles Trent Cole sustained a calf injury in the Eagles’ loss Sunday to the 49ers. According to NFL.com the injury could be serious. If it is his chances of playing Sunday against the Bills would presumably be up in the air at best.
