Mack vs Eagles O-line

Route 9 : 1/7/2019 7:07 pm
Just curious and saw a couple comments here and social media how Mack didn't show up much on the stat sheet. I didn't watch most of the game so I was wondering according to BBI how or what they did to hold Mack down? Was it a bad performance no show in the playoffs?

Or did he have a good game and people were just judging his games by the box score? Thanks. Wont delete if already posted.
Jason Peters held him in check

At his age, his size, and his injury history, you gotta think he's gonna fall off that cliff soon. And he's had some down games this year. But by and large the guy is still getting it done at a high level.
Seemed that Leonard

Floyd had a bigger impact than Mack did
I only saw the 2nd half and thought Mack was excellent

Close to dominant. Unfortunately, he disappeared during the Eagles game winning drive.
For a guy compared to LT

That was embarrassing. Two firsts plus no fat contract for a 27 year old when the team needs a rebuild. Doesn't look so stupid now. The guy is no Aaron Donald.

Peters did an excellent job without a lot of help, mostly one-on-one, the Eagles O-line is so much better than the giants , itís ridiculous.
The only time I remember seeing Mack he had got through

Peters and Foles threw the ball. Peters was reaching across Mack's body and had him by his shoulder pad in his armpit. No flag though.
Mack was virtually a zero

against the Giants. He played last night, but nothing special. Saw a couple Bears games and frankly I don't see it.
Just rewatched the shortcuts of the game

He didnít have an excellent game and was largely neutralized early on, so I retract my post above. I thought he really started to make an impact In the 4th quarter, though. He really depends on his quickness and I am wondering whether heíd benefit from playing at a lower weight.
Forget the comparisons to LT

in his era, or Butkus either. These guys dominated . He makes plays but does not change game plans like those two did from that position. MO
