Jaguars-Eagles one-liners

Said Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio, “All in all, I was pleased with the effort and energy and pleased with
the way things started for the game. Not pleased at the end. You want
to win everything you do.”

Jaguars QB David Garrard left the game briefly after sustaining a neck burner, but returned to lead a touchdown drive.

The hit that caused the injury was just one reason why the Jaguars remain worried about their offensive line.

The Jaguars offense converted 3-of-7 third downs, continuing a preseason long struggle with sustaining drives.

LB Brian Iwuh made the most of his opportunity to start for the Jaguars by returning a fumble 92 yards for a touchdown.

Eagles CB Asante Samuel had a busy game with an interception, a forced fumble and a brief departure with a wrist injury.

The return of DE Trent Cole to the Eagles lineup coincided with their best pass rush of the preseason. 

Eagles QB Kevin Kolb played for the first time in the preseason and, despite taking a safety, helped lead the team back for a victory.

Said Eagles QB Donovan McNabb of the team’s problems in the red zone, “If you look at it, we had over 300 yards of total offense and 21 first
downs or so. We just have to come out with touchdowns. That’s the most
important thing.”

Eagles S Macho Harris will have an MRI on Friday after spraining his ankle.

    Sloppy game for both teams. Too many fumbles.

    Sweet, Macho Harris to IR for a year of development. Mark it down!

    Asante Samuels should be getting a fine the next day or two. Uncalled for helmet to helmet hit.

    Nothing about the Eagles o-line issues?
    Seemed like a liability to me.
    Seemed porous and weak–Jags kept getting pressure on the left side. (If McNabb wasn’t a scrambler, I think it would have been much more noticeable).
    I bet opponents took note of it.

    Why did six minutes of game in the 2nd quarter dissappear from the NFL Network re-broadcast of the game? Anyone care to share what happened in that 6 minutes?

    Damn right. How the hell Winston Justice still has a job in the NFL defies logic. He’s about as mobile as a tackling sled, and has been a liability since he entered the league.

    Does this make any grammatical or logical sense whatsoever?
