On the first play of the game, Josh Johnson threw a long ball to Michael Clayton who attempted a one-hand catch which should've been done with two. At the two minute mark in the first half, Johnson found Kellen Winslow for a touchdown, his first of two touchdowns in the game (102 yards total).
The Eagles committed a lot of penalties totaling over 100 yards from flags. There were so many dropped passes in this game that I started wondering if our wide receivers had become Braylon Edwards (Cleveland Browns version). The defense, though seemingly causing more stops than previous weeks, continued to give up big plays, especially to Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin. We were able to contain DeSean Jackson (upsetting some fantasy owners) but the Eagles
simply had too many weapons.
Center Jeff Faine will likely be returning in week 6 from an injury that he suffered earlier this season, which should give Josh Johnson some extra time to throw. Although Johnson is a lot more mobile than former starting quarterback Byron Leftwich, he can't always count on his feet to get a first down. If Johnson gets into trouble, he needs to throw the ball away and not keep twirling in the backfield.
