I missed the game live but after watching it after i got home that was a forward pass by cousins why they didn't overturn that still confuses me.

I am pretty happy with the win. not sure why all of a sudden there is so much hate for carson, of course he is not perfect but he has guts and played well. Hope Darby comes back fast!

I absolutely hated the playcalling, if i´d seen one more bubble screen i would´ve thrown up on my laptop.

I think that's just a vocal minority. If I had to guess most people are still hopeful/still wanting to see a bigger sample size.

The Eagles ran the ball 20 times for an embarrassingly low 52 yards against the Redskins, with Blount getting 14 of those carries for 46 yards. Blount didn't look great against the Redskins, unable to take advantage of big holes opened up by the offensive line and not getting the job done in the red zone by the goal line.

I think everyone should still be very hopeful for the kid, he's got a lot of the tools.  But it's definitely fair to criticize him as well. He's going to still make some mistakes, but you'd like to see him improve on some of those that we saw frequently in his first year.  He still has a way to go.

I agree with that. But I think also you can't go on a fishing expedition for faults. The game isn't designed for quarterbacks to be perfect 100% of the time. We saw plenty of terribad plays from Hall of Fame QBs this week alone. Sometimes the defense does their job or makes a great play and the quarterback has to pay for it.

I didn't think our run game was thaaat bad, but we sure abandoned it pretty quick. To me it felt like this week we saw the result of a league wide epidemic of neglecting the run. We all know it's a passing league at the moment, but this week seemed to be particularly bad. So many teams abandoned the run game on a dime or couldn't get anything going.

 

Look at non-QB rush stats around the league week 1

  • Eagles: 52 yards on 20 carries (2.6 Y/C)
  • Packers: 63 yards on 21 carries (3.0 Y/C)
  • Browns: 40 yards on 20 carries (2.0 Y/C)
  • Steelers: 43 yards on 15 carries (2.9 Y/C)
  • Rams: 68 yards on 29 carries (2.3 Y/C)
  • Cardinals: 52 yards on 20 carries (2.6 Y/C)
  • Lions: 68 yards on 25 carries (2.7 Y/C)
  • Redskins: 34 yards on 13 carries (2.6 Y/C)
  • Giants: 34 yards on 11 carries (3.1 Y/C)
  • Jets: 38 yards on 13 carries (2.9 Y/C)
  • Falcons: 53 yards on 20 carries (2.6 Y/C)

Pretty putrid run game performances from 11 of the 26 teams we've seen play thus far.

Good stuff, that is pretty bad and puts things into perspective. I hope we can turn things around though and find some success on the ground, but I don't know if we have the personnel for it at this point.

The reason we have lost games to Washington is because their run defense has been pretty good vs us. 

2014 season last game over 100yds rushing (still lost that game).

THIS! 

We tend to glorify other teams players since we don't watch every play.

I don't think it is fishing for results if you're seeing the same flaws though.  That was one of the things I consistently noted about Foles even in spite of his ridiculous season.  Obviously, results are what matter the most, but you want consistent results through consistent play.  As you said, there are a lot of other variables in football that account for things that make it hard to evaluate, but you can still look closely at the minutiae and see certain indicators.
