Red Zone Interception Was The Play Of The Game

Good things happen to good teams.  Right now the Philadelphia Eagles aren’t a good football team.

It was the play of the game a 14 point swing, but I couldn’t put major blame on an Eagles player for the play.  The Saints came in an all-out blitz.  Michael Vick read it and threw a pass to tight end Brent Celek, who had run a square out route.

Celek was being covered by Saints safety Rafael Bush.  The safety was grabbing and tackling Celek with the ball still in the air.  The pass hit the tight end’s right hand as he reached up for it.  The ball hit off his hand and went into the air.  Saints cornerback Patrick Robinson was standing right there as he covered Eagles tight end Clay Harbor who was running an outside route.

Robinson caught the football and took it back 99-yards for a score.

Celek blamed himself for the play.  “I’m just disappointed in myself,” Celek said after the game. “I feel like I let a lot of people down. I let the city down. Like I said, I’m just disappointed in myself.”

I think the blame should be pointed at the referee who didn’t make the call.  I thought a pass interference penalty was in store.  Usually the referees are quick to call pass interference on defenders, but for the last few games, Celek isn’t getting a break.  He was called for pass interference when he caught a touchdown pass in the didn’t think

“They brought an all-out blitz, and I actually thought we were going to get a holding call on Brent [Celek],” Vick said. “But we didn’t get the holding call. Another tipped ball, another turnover in the red zone. Not good.”

“I thought there was a fairly aggressive play on the tight end,” Andy Reid said afterward. “It was questionable, but you have to make the plays. I felt like he was restricted a bit to get to the ball.”

Clearly this play hurt the Eagles, but it happened in the first quarter so the Birds had plenty of time to make up for that. on Facebook

  1. You are probably right that you cant blame an eagles player on that play but you can blame the coaching staff. You got LESEAN MCCOY against the worst run d in football and you also one of the worst QBs in football what do you do?

  2. This team is an absolute disgrace to the city and its fanbase

    You got Lesean McCoy against THE WORST run D in football and you refuse to pound the rock. Lets look at some of the spots JUST in the first quarter where the Eagles shouldve called runs against THE WORST RUN D IN FOOTBALL:

    1ST DRIVE:
    1st and 10 at PHI 20 M.Vick pass incomplete deep right to D.Jackson.
    1st and 10 at PHI 48 (Shotgun) M.Vick pass incomplete deep middle to B.Celek.
    1st and 10 at NO 27 M.Vick sacked at NO 30 for -3 yards (B.Bunkley).

    2ND DRIVE:
    1st and 10 at PHI 42 (Shotgun) M.Vick pass short left to D.Jackson ran ob at PHI 47 for 5 yards (M.Jenkins). Pass -2, YAC 7
    2nd and 6 at NO 6 M.Vick pass short left intended for B.Celek INTERCEPTED by P.Robinson at NO 1. P.Robinson for 99 yards, TOUCHDOWN. PENALTY on PHI-M.Vick, Low Block, 15 yards, enforced between downs. The penalty for a low block during the interception return will be assessed on the ensuing kickoff.

    3rd Drive:
    1st and 10 at PHI 20 (Shotgun) M.Vick pass short right to B.Celek to PHI 25 for 5 yards (J.Casillas; R.Harper). Pass 5, YAC 0

    This is just the first quarter. You know when you have an awful coach? When you have a top 5 running back going against THE WORST RUN D IN FOOTBALL and you refuse to at least try to impose your will against that D by running the ball down their throats.

    What a disgrace. Get this QB and Coaching staff the hell out of here!!!!!!!!!

  3. So the eagles go against THE WORST RUN D IN FOOTBALL and our coaching staff calls 47 passes (YES 47 because the 6 Vick runs were pass plays) and you call 23 runs. It makes me sick to my stomach knowing these coaches are making millions and our mentally challenged at least when it comes to the game of football.

    the Saints going into last night were BY FAR THE WORST RUN OFFENSE in football and they smashed us for 140 yards.


  4. Aside from not running the ball in the Red Zone…. Why the heck do you have Harbor and a defender right in the same area? Once again just a poorly designed play…. Reid fired the wrong coordinator. Time for all of them to go!

  5. This team isn’t even worth using the brain cells to think of all the things I could say about them. I will absolve the players for now. This is on MANAGEMENT, squarely on their shoulders. We went away from building thru the draft, keeping in house coaches promoting them. Now the Eagles are a bunch of players and coaches who have no comaraderie and relationships. Juan should’ve been the O-Line Coach and the guy in Carolina should’ve been the D-line coach . But none of it matters because you don’t get the players to work the system. This team flat out sucks and it’s managements fault. We are playing with a Division 3 O-line in the NFL. From Left tackle to Right tackle, you tell me one player that could start elsewhere. And do not say Mathis, because we got him off the cut heap as a journeyman. It’s so easy to blame the QB, Vick makes mistakes yes, but anyone will tell you if you don’t block for the QB and he is uncomfortable, he will not play well. I’m no O-coordinator, but we should’ve run the ball 40 times yesterday. What a disgrace…

  6. If that was actually Mike Vick’s brother tweeting during the game, Mike should drive to VA today and punch him right in the mouth. Why bring even more unnecessary heat on your brother. Just Stupid…
