There are three truths that are guaranteed in life: death, taxes, and the Eagles signing and then releasing Julian Vandervelde every week. Vandervelde signed with the Eagles on October 14th of last season and stuck with the team until he was released on September 5th this year.
There was no build up needed for this game, as Eagles and Redskins fans have had this game circled on their calendars since the schedule out months ago. Desean Jackson had a good game himself, but it wasn't enough to silence the Philadelphia crowd. Eagles fans were on him from the get go, and didn't relent until the final whistle
10-0. That was Andrew Luck's career record after a loss heading into Monday night. In his short two plus year career, Luck has not lost consecutive games....until the Eagles came to town.
Riding a Cary Williams' interception early on to a 7-0 lead, the Eagles were unable to stop the Pats the rest of the way, as they lost by a final score of 42-35. The offense took a huge step back for the Eagles, as they turned the ball over four times during the game; twice on the ground and twice through the air. Knowing Belichick, he was probably behind the turnovers with his witchcraft and cheating ways, but nonetheless, the Eagles offense has to come more prepared for their next game.
It's finally here folks. After seven long months of first round exits, tanking for Canadian ballers, and not trading guys who contribute little to the team, Philadelphia's best professional team at the moment finally took the field Friday night in an exhibition match against the Chicago Bears. Although the Eagles did wind up with the loss, that's not what the preseason is about. These games are for Chip to see who makes the team, who will start, and who meshes well with others.
