All the “official storylines” about the Eagles personnel entering this game tonight are provided by Dave Spadaro in this preview piece he wrote today.
What I’m basically looking for is law and order—I mean, seeing guys lining up properly and getting on and off the field with precision and a good idea of knowing where they are supposed to go. This also means I don’t want to see a bunch of those dreaded procedure penalties. I can’t take it anymore!
I’m also looking to see which rookies and 2nd-year players step up and play well when the bright lights go on. It’s one thing to shine in practice, but it means so much more when a kid plays his best under the scrutiny of real-time NFL pressure. That’s the player who will earn more reps in the next preseason game, and maybe even get to run with the 1’s in PS3.
This will be the first time in many years that we here at the EYE don’t have our Livefyre in-game auto-refresh tailgate comments party. I miss those gameday tailgate sessions. We do have the Facebook plug-in to receive your comments below. But it’s not the same because it doesn’t auto-refresh.
However, our regular commentator and home-run king Ryan Lubrich (aka The Lubricator, aka GSXR Mustang) has created an alternative chat forum for in-game real-time conversation, and I’m going to visit there during the game a lot. It’s on a site called discord.com. Here’s a link to his interesting new machine if you wish to give it a look:
As Ryan explains, it’s like a chat channel, primarily used by like-gamers that stream on twitch, but he figured we might be able to use it for gameday chats.
I’ll try anything once!–TWSS. Onward to Green Bay!
