Willie McGinest, Lesley Visser and I are discussing why the Eagles defense and coordinator Jim Johnson have been completely ineffective so far against the Cardinals.
The consensus is that the Cardinals are throwing all of their plays out there. They are keeping the Eagles off-balance by running the ball, spreading them out, running crossing routes, screens to the tight ends and receivers, trick plays and the halfback toss that went back to the quarterback and then was thrown for a touchdown.
On top of that, there have been several big plays off blown coverages.
At halftime, Larry Fitzgerald is already over 100 receiving yards — his fifth straight game with over 100 yards receiving — and he has tied the record for most touchdowns in an NFC Championship Game with three. AT THE HALF!
