Eagles win 23-17. Sorry Purple Jesus.

Monday, October 29, 2007 ·

Oh my, the Eagles won a game. Sadly, this 3-4 team is a dumb coaching decision and defensive collapse away from being 5-2. Yesterday, McNabb and crew played a pretty flawless offensive game and kept Adrian Peterson (20 carries, 70 yards) to lead a 23-16 victory over Minnesota. Of course it was against one of the worst pass defenses in football, but they made the plays and outside of the first red zone drive, the correct play call.

Maybe Donovan is finally back to 100% as a quarterback. He also looked as mobile as he used to be, after the first leg injury. The running game wasn't exactly there, but you cannot say it was not from lack of trying. Though the run/pass ratio was not exactly where you want it o be, they got the big runs when they needed them against the best rush defense in football (and damn near NFL history).

A win is a win and the team improves to 3-4 and prepares to host the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
