Let's hope we don't have to win this one with a field goal! Whether we win or lose - BC seems to have a knack for elevating your blood pressure right up until the end.

eagleboston said...

Let's end this horrific 9-game losing streak!

Mario Rigatoni said...

Par for the course on D.

Par for the course on O.

Should be a fun day. Shoulda bet the under again.

TGS said...

Better hope this isn't close.

BC under the Daz

5-11 in games decided by 7 or less
2-10 in games decided by 3 or less
8 straight losses in "one score" games

Quite a hire. Quite a leader of young men.
Ever to excel my ass. Two major bowls in past 63 years.

eagleboston said...

Let's do some play-action. They are doing run blitzes.

ATL_eagle said...

That was the right call on 4th down.

Bravesbill said...

At least they didn't kick a FG there. Still some pretty terrible play calling. And the OL looks pretty sad.

eagleboston said...

Can't criticize him there. He went for it. That was the right call. However, I would have rolled Towles to the right with a run-play option.

ATL_eagle said...

That was just a broken play. Now the Offense is going to have to start moving the ball. I fear the team pressing.

Bravesbill said...

Oh Jesus. This is sad.

Bravesbill said...

If they lose does Daz get fired?

del olio said...

This is going well.

eagleboston said...

Who is #10? He let the receiver blow right by him. He must have assumed he had safety help.

eagleboston said...

Brave, that would be 10 straight losses. But, my guess is you would play out the season and then fire him.

They need to be less predictable on offense. Too many runs on first down.

jrtmurphy said...

Hilliman looks so slow

jrtmurphy said...

And Towles needs to stop throwing hospital balls

Bravesbill said...

Too many runs in general. That was a bad call to run a sweep in 3rd and 2 esp. if you were planning to go for it on 4th. Need to get uphill quick. Seems like BC can't get to the corner in general either.

knucklehead said...

Zero insight TGS. That information is known already.

eagleboston said...

That 3rd down cal was ridiculous! You need more than 10 yards and you are tossing to the line of scrimmage?

Bravesbill said...

If Daz gets fired immediately following a loss here, maybe you have to root for UMass.

knucklehead said...

Secondary looks lost.

TGS said...

Where is Knucklehead today? My bet is he is taping up the Daz's pulled groin.

jrtmurphy said...

We have to bring pressure on 3rd down. QB is too accurate if we give time

knucklehead said...

TGS, groins on your mind?

TGS said...

Ouch! Your wit flows like the Daz's offense.

knucklehead said...

Sarcasm is for losers.

jrtmurphy said...

Highlight so far the fan shot of UMass skanks with cutoff tees

TGS said...

The moron needs a timeout to punt. Beyond Pathetic.

ReiDaDor said...

I'm trying to stay positive but...it's really difficult.

jrtmurphy said...

Sweet- and Smith has pulled two crappy passes in for Towles

jrtmurphy said...

OMG OMG

bceagle93 said...

I think everyone is being a little hard on Daz and this team. Playing at Gillette is a big game, bowl like atmosphere. Just listen to the crowd -- the echoes off of the empty seats could intimidate any coach or player...

bceagle93 said...

And make any kicker miss another extra point..............

eagleboston said...

Hey, for once the field position strategy worked! And a play-action pass on first down to boot!

But......the kicking game blows it yet again.

Bravesbill said...

What a joke. This is fucking ridiculous. Pull some schmuck out of the stands at this point.

Eagle Esquire said...

Unbelievably atrocious!

eagleboston said...

Nice throw by Towles and a great catch by Smith. Nice hands!

jrtmurphy said...

Dude, I played soccer at BC. I could make a fing extra point with my weak foot for God's sake. There has to be someone on the end of Ed Kellys bench who wants to be a hero

Bravesbill said...

Holy crap, the ball went through the uprights!

TGS said...

Every coach in America goes for 2 there.

eagleboston said...

Smith is the man!!!

We have a passing game for the first time in years!! Me like the aggressive play calling!

bceagle93 said...

All jokes aside, that was a nice throw by Towles.

Bravesbill said...

Bad Towles rears his ugly head again. Such a bad throw after two good ones.

jrtmurphy said...

Someone tell Daz a 42 yard FG is harder to make than a 37 yarder

Don't you take the penalty?

jrtmurphy said...

LOL- nevermind

eagleboston said...

Murph, I was thinking the same thing. I would have taken the penalty, even though it gives them another down.

jrtmurphy said...

Wait- where's our graphic where we have to get to for a FG attempt?

eagleboston said...

Nice job defense!!

mod34b said...

Is lichtenberg injured or just benched?

mod34b said...

OL great on pass. Weak on runs.

Concerning they can't move ball on ground vs lowly UMAss

mod34b said...

kicking is just hysterical.

JBQ said...

Defense is bailing out a very bad offense. Jeff Smith is a bright light while Towles is a flickering one. Smith has been holding for extra points. Because of the touchdowns, he didn't do it. The sub can't hold. I believe it was number 15.

eagleboston said...

Towles has 118 yards passing. Can't remember the last team we were over 100 yards in the first half. BC defense giving up zero rushing yards on 22 attempts.

We need points!

Pearl Washington said...

Hilliman 1 run for 73

Other carries 26 rushes 39 yards

The o line stinks

Offense needs to change quickly

eagleboston said...

Can someone tell me why Issabella was not recruited by BC?

mod34b said...

apparently lichtenberg is injured. BC does not seem tissue injury reports

mod34b said...

the ref seems to have some weird speaking style......

mod34b said...

is he on something??? slooooowww..mootion..

eagleboston said...

Lots of stupid penalties by BC in the first 2 games. This one is a killer as UMass is in BC territory. Offense is back to looking sluggish. Need the defense to step up again.

Deacon Drake said...

They came out of the locker room playing like a bag of wet hair... Must have been an inspiring, motivating speech.

The defense is still sick... My wife has a year of eligibility left and hit a few FGs this morning... Oh yeah, she's 8 months pregnant. Honestly, these guys must not practice kicking at all.

mod34b said...

BC as passing team!

Deacon Drake said...

They take too long to get the play in... Towles has the experience to do this from the line.

mod34b said...

burn those TOs steve

eagleboston said...

Another blown 3rd quarter timeout in a close game! I'm going ballistic!

mod34b said...

kicking follies resumes

mod34b said...

but it is good!!!

Deacon Drake said...

Shit organization... Meaningless timeout

ATL_eagle said...

HEY! A made FG!

eagleboston said...

BC got away with pass interference on the INT, but I will take it!

ATL_eagle said...

Another made FG!

Bravesbill said...

Fucking Daz. 3 runs up the middle again. Trying to run down the clock in the 3rd quarter ha.

mod34b said...

knoll is the new kicker! see ya Colt

mod34b said...

BB-- i noticed that too. Daz gets engaged and kills the offense...

eagleboston said...

Who did not predict the 3 straight runs in the redzone?

Bravesbill said...

Zero killer instinct.

mod34b said...

daz is the only court in USa who will ty yo run out clock in 3Q

mod34b said...

15 yard net on punt stupid

ATL_eagle said...

I don't like the punt there. The D is playing well. Go for it.

Bravesbill said...

At least try to put this game away. Let UMass hang around down less than 2 TDs.

eagleboston said...

Nice, we gained 15 yards on that punt.

Bravesbill said...

The play not to lose mentality is out in full force now.

ATL_eagle said...

This Defense is going to keep the team in every game.

ATL_eagle said...

That should have been a penalty on the UMass bench for bumping Rouse.

ATL_eagle said...

This OLine is looking much better than the first half.

eagleboston said...

Finally, a win!! It's been a long, agonizing year.

jrtmurphy said...

Hey-we won-sweet

eagleboston said...

Florida beat this same team 24-7. And that was a home game for Florida.

dixieagle said...

Shhh... don't count our chickens before they've hatched.

dixieagle said...

I do love our D.

rgmarine said...

nice to see the win but hard to get too excited over beating umass. the defensive line is one of the best in the nation but i am very concerned with the secondary. the oline played better
but this is umass. hillman seems slow. towles can make a big pass but he seems very capable of a bonehead play. i know i sound mostly negative but realistically this team is still at best a 500 team this year. please prove me wrong bc

dixieagle said...

Flashes of good stuff, but the offense was often sluggish. Towles has an arm but makes occasional hideous decisions. Hope we've seen the last of Lichtenberg. The D was mainly solid, forcing some turnovers, but the secondary is sometimes shaky. Would like to see more holes opened up for the running game. But, we won. Whew.

Knucklehead said...

rgmarine,
I agree hilliman looks slow and he is not an instinctive runner(another example of a Daz guy). Where was myles willis in the second half? he is our best back. That is my only complaint about the eagles offense today.

Lichtenstein was hurt today according to the nesn tv announcers. Not sure what caused the injury. I don't foresee him having much of an impact on the team the rest of the season.

mod34b said...

I believe Lichtenstein's injury was to his pride.

Knucklehead said...

I heard the fund managers were not happy with the ROI from that game(if you know what I mean). He was the reason.
