What They're Saying After Eagles Win Sunday

It's not all sunshine, lollipops and roses in the eyes of some area writers after Sunday's Eagles' victory as you'll see in the latest edition of "What They're Saying".

The Eagles took care of the Titans by a 43-24 final score Sunday. With a short week in front of them and Dallas awaiting on Thanksgiving Day, it's high time to find out what the Delaware Valley's sportswriters are putting in newspapers and blogs in another edition of "What They're Saying".

We start with Rich Hofmann from the Philadelphia Daily News who pulls no punches in saying Mark Sanchez needs to play better Thanksgiving Day in order for the Birds to beat the Boys. Citing how important accuracy is against the Eagles' upcoming games against Dallas and Seattle, Hofmann says, "Mistakes mean everything when the games mean everything. And, well, here we go."

Hofmann's Daily News colleague Marcus Hayes prefers to look at the positives from Sunday's victory going so far to say it was all business from the opening kickoff. "They executed with alarming precision and vigor and overwhelmed the Titans, 43-24," states Hayes, "They didn’t fall in the trap a two-win team can present.

NJ Advance Media's Matt Lombardo dons his professor's cap and grades the Eagles performance from Sunday. Guess what gets an A from Professor Lombardo. "LeSean McCoy's third 100-yard rushing performance of the season. The ground game accounted for 166 yards and two touchdowns."

And CSNPhilly.com's Reuben Frank offers 10 observations from Sunday's Eagles victory and shows some love to kicker Cody Parkey. Parkey who went 5 for 6 in the game including a 50 yarder, may be the most underrated player on the team according to Frank, "To think the Eagles got this guy for nothing a few days before the season. What a find he’s been."
