Default Jason Kelce - WTF???

There is no other way of looking at it - Jason Kelce has been horrible this season. Besides the bad snaps, he has been penalized 9 times in 9 games. Last season, he was penalized only 6 times in 16 games. What the hell!!?? He has probably been our worst under-performer this year.

See ==>>> http://www.pro-football-reference.co...a00/penalties/

He's just another example of the curse. All kinds of ability who just shits the bed when he puts on an Eagle uniform.

How many threads could we have that are the same as this one?

DeMarco Murray: WTF?
Mark Sanchez: WTF?
Miles Austin: WTF?
Malcom Jenkins (yesterday): WTF?
etc . . .

When it's more than half your team, it hasn't been a good year.

He is a product of what is to his left and right. he was more familiar with Herremans and Mathis and they are better communicators and played with more consistency. Yes, he has underperformed, but he is also a product of the five guys who share the responsibilities.

Kelce must have benefited from Herremans and Mathis over the last couple years, cuz he has regressed more than anyone on this team. He has been terrible!

I'm kind of sick of him saying "that was the worst game of my career" over and over again

I was thinking the same.

Perhaps he isn't as good as he is thought to be. Or he's trying to compensate for the OGs shortcomings.

I'm sure Suh deciding that he actually wanted to play yesterday had a lot to do with it. He's made a lot of guys look bad over his career. He's taken most of the season off, but not yesterday.

Re: Suh. That's true, E60.

Not to take away from Kelce's attributes, but I have to admit that I was concerned that Suh would push Kelce around, simply because of Suh's size/speed/demeanor.

I also tend to think that in this scheme, the sum of Mathis'/Kelce's/Herremans' abilities is greater than that of Tobin/Kelce/Gardner.

Maybe I should start looking for info on FA OL this offseason already. I don't think the solution is on the roster. That 2nd Rd pick in the Bradford trade looms large, so I don't know if they would draft one unless it's with the high 3rd Rd pick from the Lions.

Our line is bad on the interior so we can't use Kelce where he is at his best which is out pulling and blocking down the field. Kelce problem is he is too small to play up against 350lb tackles like Suh. On one play Suh just put his arm under Kelces armpit and lifted him and threw him to the side. Just not big enough.

blocking is only one issue. The bad shotgun snaps have to stop. Since we are in shotgun over 90% of the time. Sanchez saved his ass one time. Kelley pounced on one another
