I agree holding any team to 16 points should make a win, but they were giving up lots of 10+ yard plays, and that last PHI drive was sad.  Yes the Off should have scored more, but I was hoping for a more dominant D performance.  Just saying.

The 36 yard punt prior to that last Eagles drive didn't help either.

The Eagles did a better job than anyone the Bears played at getting the ball off very quickly to minimize the rush.

The Eagles tackles are getting a lot of pub on how they shut down the Bears pass rush.  And Lane Johnson and Jason Peters were solid but I give most the credit to Foles for knowing where to go with the ball and consistently unloading the ball prior to contact.

Foles was not throwing to open receivers when he released the ball - but they were open when the ball arrived.

Yep - sometimes better to be lucky than good - maybe if Eddie Jackson was out there the results would have been different

It was a hard fought game, by both teams. Absolutely the O played like sh!t the first half. But the fact is we had the lead at the end of the game and the D didn't stop the Eagles when they needed to. It was a team loss, but the D was our silver bullet.. At least at that point, they were more like chrome plated..

One things for certain though.. If Parkey makes that kick we wouldn't even be discussing any of this. We'd be talking about the Rams.. Fukk me!!

Yep - wins pretty much sugar coat all the performances - good and bad.  There are so many plays that could go either way that could have made the difference in the game.  Its just everyone remembers the most visible one near the end.
