    Well, the coaching staff has the chance to redeem themselves this week against the Redskins. It's time for you Eagles fans to move on. If this was the other way around, as a Bears fan, I would have moved on five days later.

    Funny how you agreed to stop repeating yourself to be on this topic but yet, you did it AGAIN, lol.

    I don't mind a word or two in a post thats in all caps but not a whole post, thats annoying.

    No one told me this was english class either.

    It looks like it but I won't confirm it unless somebody can find a pic of that exact same play from a different angle.

    that was meant as you can have your opinion.

    again, i am not taking from the bears here. i am ripping the eagles coaching staff for not challenging this and there is a long history of reid not handling things well at the end of games.

    Now, from that angle, to answer ravenfan52's question, theres no telling if Buckhalter's knee was down or not. You would need to see that from another angle.

    I've been wondering the exact samething throughout this thread, lol.

    I really don't think it was close. You can go by this picture, but that's just one angle that can be easily corrupted. Based on the replays shown, I don't think there was a doubt that he didn't get in.

    As for Reid not challenging, I agree with the decision. The challenge would have been a long shot. It's not as if the game was over then, there was still plenty of time on the clock and we had all are timeouts plus the two minute warning. I'm still more pissed at the play call than anything. If that's the best you can come up with, you don't deserve the ref's help.

    I can't even see the ball on that pic. Time to get new glasses, I guess :icon_eek:

    from THAT picture, it looks like a TD to me :2cents:

    It might just be my vision, but I can't say for sure looking at that pic that it's a TD. There's a bit of an angle in it. If it was called a TD with replay, there would be tons of pics from Redskins fans showing otherwise.

    But I totally agree with Burnout, the play calling was awful. A QB sneak or rolling out McNabb probably would have resulted in an easy TD.

    86WARD -

    The camera angle makes it look like a TD...It's very clear that the camera is far from directly above the line of scrimmage in this picture. Look at all the players' legs...this picture is shot on an angle.

    Having said that, make it or not, it should've been challenged.
