    Eagles Why Your Team Sucks: Philadelphia Eagles

    http://deadspin.com/5938903/why-your...eam-sucks-2012

    1. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting Andy Reid to win a Super Bowl.
    2. Analysts LOVE Andy Reid
    3. Michael Vick loves killing drives almost as much as he loves killing puppies/
    4. This is what Eagles fans deserve.
    5. Hear it from Eagles fans!

    Mike:
    There is guaranteed to be at least one game this year in which the Eagles are down by between four and eight points and the following sequence takes place:

    Quarter: 4, time 1:10
    1st and 10, Eagles ball, opposition 15
    M. Vick passes incomplete left to J. Maclin (1:02)

    2nd and 10, Eagles ball, opposition 15
    M. Vick passes incomplete middle to B. Celek (0:55)

    3rd and 10, Eagles ball, opposition 15
    M. Vick SACKED for -7 yards, FUMBLES. Ball recovered by Eagles (T. Herremans). (0:44)
    M. Vick INJURED, will not return.
    Eagles CHALLENGE ball spot. Call upheld, Eagles charged with timeout.

    4th and 17, Eagles ball, opposition 22
    N. Foles passes complete middle to J. Avant for 18 yards. FIRST DOWN. (0:35).
    Eagles timeout

    1st and goal, Eagles ball, opposition 1
    L. McCoy runs up middle for no gain. (0:30)

    2nd and goal, Eagles ball, opposition 1
    L. McCoy runs up middle for no gain (0:15)
    Eagles timeout

    3rd and goal, Eagles ball, opposition 1
    L. McCoy runs up middle for no gain (0:09)

    Time expires, end of game. Eagles lose.

    just some minor inconsistencies. Under two minutes would be a booth review, second point to that the eagles would not have a time out left to be charged to begin with. Also, 4th and 17 with 44 seconds left and no time outs while down, eagles would punt.
    I'm back baby.

    Andy Reid burns timeouts like Wilson Goode burns rowhomes.

    If you're on the 22 yard-line and gain 18 yards, you're not then on the 1 yard-line. Although, I suppose with the replacement refs anything is possible.
    In between the lines there's a lot of obscurity, I'm not inclined to resign to maturity.

    I also find it much more likely that the Eagles will get a team in some 3rd and long situation only to have Castillo screw up the playcall or have one of the players commit some ridiculous penalty.
