Battle in trenches was complete dominance.

By Benjamin Baney

If this was a fight it looked like Carolina struck first and with a bit of a hey-maker and might get a first round knockout. I certainly thought the first team to get a 7 point lead, and especially do so while just ramming the football down our throats. Then the offensive and defensive lines for the Eagles just dominated. On countless occasions we saw Jason Peters crushing linebackers defensive backs and shutting down for the most part one Julius Peppers. In fact he was a non-factor for most of the game.

Did Delhomme look good? No, but neither did any other face of their offense. And people we're just getting beat left and right. I mention this because both of Carolina's lines are pretty heralded, we shall see if the dominance in the trenches continue or they let up against what is generally considered two week offensive lines in New Orleans. I think we as Eagle fans have some great reasons to be excited.
