Chip Kelly - C+
Its really hard to grade the coach when his players don't execute. Chip had me lost in the first quarter after the Jason Avant TD. Why go for two? The fake formation is to see just how the defense is lining up against you, just to see if there is a possibility to go for it, and clearly, the Chiefs were prepared, and it failed. It was dumb and annoying, and set the tone for how the offense was going to play the rest of the game.
LeSean McCoy - A
The lone shining star on the offense. McCoy rushed for 158 and a touchdown last night and did most of his production after what looked like a season ending injury where Shady was yelping in pain as he threw his helmet off as he was grabbing his leg. I didn't think I would see him back in the season, let alone the game.
DeSean Jackson - B
Invisible. But not his fault. DJax was in double coverage nearly the entire night and Vick had such a hard time trying to find him. When Vick did find Jackson, it was down the right sideline on an absolute bomb. Seems to be the only way to get him the ball recently.
Michael Vick - D
This wasn't the first two weeks of the season Michael Vick, this was Dream Team and 2012 Michael Vick. He played so unbelievably bad last night. Maybe it was Andy Reid in the building, but he played the mistake-filled ball he played under Reid, not the flashy read-option, no mistake play that Chip Kelly had him running the first two weeks. Vick threw 2 interceptions, had one returned for a score, and was sacked 5 times. He never seemed comfortable in the backfield, and was never really set to throw. A very poor performance on Vick's part, lets hope the extended time off will get his head back in the game.
Offensive Line - D-
Is there such thing as a D minus? It's hard for me to fail an entire group of people, but as a whole, the group played terribly. Vick was sacked 5 times last night with most of the pressure coming from the edges. I'm looking at you Jason Peters and Lane Johnson. Chiefs LB Justin Houston had three of those sacks, inexcusable for a first round pick, and a perennial pro-bowler. Center Jason Kelce had a rough night. The report was he was playing through a thumb injury, but that doesn't mean that you botch a snap like that so bad. How do you not know that Vick's hands weren't on your butt? That fumble led to more of the Chiefs points of turnovers and helped the Eagles completely shoot themselves in the foot.
Demaris Johnson- F
The first F of the year. Just because Demaris really F'd up. After a big return on the opening kickoff, the Eagles D stopped the Chiefs and forced them to punt. But Demaris Johnson didn't get his elbows inside his shoulders and he botched the catch and allowed the Chiefs to recover. This was the beginning of the slippery slope for the Eagles' turnover fest.
Vinny Curry - A
Talk about making the most of your first game action of the season. Why it took this long for him to get into the games, we aren't sure, but I'm glad he was able to get on the field. Curry record his first tackle this season and it was a sack of Chiefs QB Alex Smith.
Cary Williams - B
Seems to be a popular player, not always for the best reasons, but at least he did not commit a single pass interference penalty? For one, the defense played far better than they did against the Chargers, and the pressure they were able to get on Smith benefited the secondary immensely.
Connor Barwin - B
Really starting to like this guy. Last night he seemed to be the most amped up and the one flying around the most. After many rushing plays, I found find myself noticing, hey Barwin was in on that one again. He finished with 6 tackles (5 solo) and a pass deflection - which if he caught, would have been returned for 6 points, which is why it's only a B.
Patrick Chung - C
What the heck man, Patrick Chung is a huge disappointment this season. Not that I was expecting much out of the Eagles secondary this year, but Chung is really awful. The man can't tackle and there are too many instances to recap on here. Tackling was not something that only Chung couldn't do last night, but Mychal Kendricks had a hard time tackling in space as well.
D-Line - B
After I was so upset with them last week, they really came to play, and against a better offensive line, too. They were able to get pressure on Smith which helped the secondary, but the D-Line can't help the linebackers and deep men tackle, that's on them. They sacked Smith 5 times and were able to get great penetration into the backfield to throw off the rhythm and timing of the Chiefs passing game. A sack or a tipped ball on third down would have also helped, but I guess I can only ask for so much.
Eagles Fans - A+
The fans in attendance last night at the Linc were successfully able to disappoint all national media when they did not boo Andy Reid or Donovan McNabb. And believe me, they were ready to tear us apart if we did. Sarcastic twitter remarks about the cheering made it obvious that they wanted us to boo, and they were disappointed they didn't have an easy story for this morning.
Donovan McNabb Halftime Event - F
Hey, 5 (which is how McNabb refers to himself in the 3rd person), you have a mic, no need to shout. When Donovan took the field during halftime last night, I was curious to see what they had in store. Last year's Brian Dawkins' retirement ceremony was the most bad-ass thing ever, how would they try to recapture that? Oh let's bring out Brian Dawkins. Two things that made me furious about the event.
1. Donovan said that six banners hanging from the rafters were because of him. As Al Morganti said this morning on the WIP Morning Show, you don't point to a banner in the rafters unless it is a championship one. "Those 6 division champ banners are only division champ banners because we didn't perform well in the playoffs! 5 loves you! I want you to understand that."
2. Why is his number next to Reggie White's? First of all there does not seem to be any specific order to how the numbers are aligned. It's not numerical order, and it's not by when they were retired. Personally, I don't think 5 deserves to be next to 92.
