Eagles Lead 14-0 after 1 Quarter

Jason La Canfora can't get on to the net, so he texts:

Not much to say about that performance. One first down by the Skins, on a Portis run. The Eagles didn't blitz as much early as I thought, though it worked well on the first drive.

Philly converted 4 of 5 third downs. On the TD return by DeSean Jackson, Durant Brooks' punt lacked hang time.

K Westbrook out Zorn and Soup figuring out Phillys Defense, we're moving the ball a bit we'll be ok.

Why Carlos why???

nice spot for a long drive. . .

14-10 would be a huge way to end the half. . .

The Skins can put together a long TD drive here and be right back in this game. Lots of football left to play, and I've got faith in this offense. Portis on fire today!

looks like we can run

Loving those adjustments!

Stretch baby Stretch!

Interesting. It looks like the Redskins started this game trying to hit some quick passes, but the Eagles were focused entirely on blitzing and taking the passing game away, especially Moss.

It looks like Zorn is taking what they'll give them now though, whether that be throwing to Cooley or letting the running game take over.

Take what they'll give you, Zorn. You have enough playmakers on offense that you can beat them with the run or the pass.

Why? Why? Your're moving the ball on the ground. Keep pounding.

portis 4.9 yds/carry

UUGGH the old QB needs to run it down their throats not force passing

nice catch by CP!!

If the Skins can get a TD out of this and kill most of the rest of the clock, they'll be in good shape for the second half (they get the ball first).

Who is number 11???

Posted by: skins1110 |

Devin Thomas. Keep running boys, wear that D out!

Posted by: scampbell1975 | October 5, 2008 2:06 PM | Report abuse

Griffin returns....You're right. 14-10 would be huge with Skins getting ball in the second half.

Posted by: CindyBoren | October 5, 2008 2:07 PM | Report abuse

TD absolutely helps here. . .

but 14-8 is one score game . . .

Posted by: skinsfan8KaboveMSL | October 5, 2008 2:07 PM | Report abuse

just kidding about 11...

Posted by: skins1110 | October 5, 2008 2:07 PM | Report abuse

Ugh, 14-6 would be okay. Our D is starting to stand up and the O is learning how to move the ball in this game. We get the ball to start the 2nd half.

Posted by: scampbell1975 | October 5, 2008 2:08 PM | Report abuse

11 is the rookie Devin Thomas.

Posted by: frediefritz | October 5, 2008 2:08 PM | Report abuse

maybe there will even be a number 12 sighting

I figured but you never know on here.

Posted by: scampbell1975 | October 5, 2008 2:09 PM | Report abuse

Suisham! OK. 14-6 is all right (considering the Skins were robbed on that blown call on the punt return).

Posted by: MrRedskin21 | October 5, 2008 2:10 PM | Report abuse

suisham is money

Posted by: skins1110 | October 5, 2008 2:10 PM | Report abuse

a fumble on the kickoff would be most excellent...

Posted by: Schroeder12 | October 5, 2008 2:12 PM | Report abuse

suisham is garbage... wow

Posted by: skins1110 | October 5, 2008 2:13 PM | Report abuse

I like our D!

Posted by: skins1110 | October 5, 2008 2:16 PM | Report abuse

more points this half please

Posted by: Realness1 | October 5, 2008 2:16 PM | Report abuse

another fg and that is not a bad way to wrap up a ishty half. . .

Posted by: skinsfan8KaboveMSL | October 5, 2008 2:17 PM | Report abuse

12 is in

Swish pulled one kick-off, but he hasbeen money in the bank all season.

Posted by: frediefritz | October 5, 2008 2:29 PM | Report abuse

Let's see:
Eagles have taken Santana Moss out of the game
We gave up a punt return TD
and we are only down 14-9

We are in it, folks

Suisham 3 for 3

Posted by: RedskinRay1 | October 5, 2008 2:29 PM | Report abuse

not bad. . .guess I'll be watching the 2nd half. . .

Posted by: skinsfan8KaboveMSL | October 5, 2008 2:29 PM | Report abuse

F that block in the back!

Posted by: skins1110 | October 5, 2008 2:30 PM | Report abuse

That was a hell of a highlight recap there on the skins-eagles game.
