Eagles O-Line Battling Injuries As They Prepare For Orakpo & Kerrigan

Who knows who is going to play on the Birds offensive line on Sunday? Starting left tackle Jason Peters has been ruled out for the game, now King Dunlap who took over Peters’ place at left tackle, is having problems with muscle spasms.

Dunlap missed practice yesterday and today, but there still is a chance that he plays on Sunday. Andy Reid said they’re going to let him rest his back for the next couple of days and hopefully the big guy is ready to go on Sunday. Andy Reid doesn’t think missing a couple of days of practice will bother him.

“King’s a smart kid, so I don’t think that would necessarily be a problem” Reid said. “I want to make sure he feels alright before we do that, but I think he would be okay. He practiced Wednesday and I think he would be okay”.

Today with Dunlap down, the Eagles moved starting right tackle Todd Herremans to left tackle and they had Winston Justice playing the right tackle spot. Justice is still recovering from off season knee surgery. Reid said he continues to make improvements, but he’s still not quite all the way back.

“You know what, it seems like every week he’s getting a little bit better and feeling more comfortable”, Reid said after practice. “So he deserves the opportunity to play if that presents itself, there”.

One of the keys to this game concerns the Eagles ability to block Washington Redskins pass rushers, Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan. They will be battling the Birds ailing tackles. Kerrigan is very good but he’s a rookie, so I think Justice with help from tight end Brent Celek can handle him, but Orakpo is a different story.

He’s one of the best pass rushers in the league and he’s got a tremendous motor which he never turns off. Matching Herremans up against Orakpo is a good idea.

If the Eagles can give Michael Vick some time, he can have great success throwing the ball against the Skins. That’s a big if because Orakpo and Kerrigan do a good of making quarterbacks uncomfortable in the pocket.

When you’re watching the game, make sure to keep an eye on how Herremans and whichever other tackle winds up playing are doing blocking Orakpo and Kerrigan. Those battles will have a lot to with deciding which team wins this football game.

  1. here is an idea- since these guys are so goood at getting to the QB, lets try and run it a little. That would keep these guys guessing. Another idea…. try a few screens. another idea….. work on some quick hits to the TE’s. I know this seems like crazy talk but…. the best way to not get your QB killed back there is to…. you know…. not have him back there for 20 mins a play.

  2. They are allowing 26.4 points per game, tied for sixth-worst. Opponents are scoring touchdowns at a rate of 78.57 percent in the red zone, worst in the NFL, and even worse than last year’s mark.

    Quarterbacks have a rating of 104.3 (third-worst) against the Eagles, and they have allowed 11 passing touchdowns (second-worst). Against the run, they are allowing 5.0 yards per carry (sixth-worst).

    Clearly- mike vick is screwing this up. How dare he? btw…. is it bad to still blame McNabb for this team? i mean…. he has done nothing about this either.

  3. DAMMNNNNN…..That pic of Kolb getting smacked is VICIOUS

  4. y not add 1 more DT to the line on 1st and 2nd down? its not like the LB’s are doing anything anyway. have nnamdi and DRC on the outside. let asam fetch water.

  5. There is a lot more G-Man to the Redksins Defense than Orapko & Kerrigen
    Across their DL, Barry Coefield at DT along with DE’s Stephen Bowen and Adam Carriker, then ILB’s London Fletcher and Rocky McIntosh which is probably the best and deepest Front 7 the Eagles have Faced all Season

    Now when you get to the Secondary , you have CB DeAngelo Hall on one side and their only weak link Josh WIlson on the oher side..
    Their Safeties are studs with O Atogwe and the hard hitting LaRon Landry

    Remember this Redskins Defense and D/Coordinator Jim Haslett were humiliated last years at home by VIck in front of a NAtional TV audience which no one on the Redksins is talking much about, but I guarantee you that Coach Shanahan and Haslett are talking to their players and amongst themselves about it big time and they are not going tobe satisfied with just winning this game, they want to punish the hurting Eagles..
    I think the Eagles can make some big plays if Vick gets time , but I see their Safeties intimidating both D-Jax/Maclin and hitting them around a bit…but the bigger question is how the Eagles OL will doversus this Redskins front 7 and I think the game will be lost right there.. I also expect that Vick is goign to get hit early,often and hard and may not even make it to the 3rd Quarter..
    I am predicting a Redskins Victory 30-16 with the Eagles scoring a late 4th Quartet TD by Kafka in garbage time,, But this game will be over by halftime and this week, it’s the Eagles Offense who does the team in by turnovers,sacks,negative plays and too many 3 & Outs giving the Redskins good field position.. Redksins will pound the rock at the Eagles interior of the their Defense and they will wear down by mid-3rd Quater putting the game away.. RB’s Torrain,Hightower & Rookie R Helu rush for a combined 225 yards between and consume 39 Minutes to the Eagles 21 Minutes
    Redskins QB R Grossman finishes 14-22 for a pedestrian 188 yaerds but this game is won and lost in the trenches and I give the Redskins a big edge right now with too many Eagle front line players Eagles out (Peters,Cole,Dixon) across the line of scrimmage

  6. thanks pman for killing my friday buzz- but- you may just be right.

  7. Maybe I am over-analyzing things and making too big a deal about that blowout from last yaer, but I truly believe the Redskins team and in particular their Coaches and Defensive players have had this game circled since the schedule came out and with the ‘Skins coming off their bye week, rested and no real injury issues , this game could get out of hand in a hurry..

  8. That may be true but the birds have even more motivation coming off of a tough opening part of the season… there trying to right there wrongs, i think this is the week the redskins get exposed!!! Birds will rally this yr and will win this game and will make the playoffs..

  9. I hope your right JH,
    It would be a shame and an embarrasment to be out the playoff hunt by Halloween.. I will have to beocme a Flyers Fan again..

  10. Reported that Redskin best cover CB DeAngelo Hall, tweaked and injured his knee and is now questionable on whether he’ll play Sunday…
    Not to wish anyone injuries, but this would be some good news for the EAgles who have 3-4 Starters out with injuries..

  11. Vick, better be wearing his kevlar flack jacket, & Wyle E. Coyote, ACME brand rocket shoes, with this line, this week! Man, just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse!

  12. I am calling this the “Rock-Bottom Game” which afterwards, changes will be made and few locker room issues and players will be traded/released

  13. I can remember during the Ray Rhodes meltdown when our team was mediocre how everyone was calling for Rhodes head.

    I’ll say this….Ray Rhodes teams were not soft!!!!!!

    Right now I would love a Rhodes qoute like, “teams are coming in our house like thieves breaking in raping our women.”

    Even though we were mediocre the Eagles had a coach with some passion who was not scared of calling out players.

    Buddy would call a player out when needed. While some may say Reid protects his players there come a time when that protection makes men weak.

    Some men respond better with a lic public kick in the behind.

    I want a coach with passion, and heart.

    Reid is not that coach…..he’s soft and his team reflects his softness.

  14. Well another week without a Jason Peters Motion penalty

  15. thems were the days songs

  16. This is a bad Eagles team. Marty M is terrible. Lets keep throwing with no oline.

  17. r Fing kidding me? 3rd & 2 and they run a play with an empty backfield? MM & AR are gametime idiots.

  18. Wow look what happens whem you give a guy who averages 6 yards a carry. Run the f^%^^n ball Marty you moron.

  19. Credit where credit is due. Great play call.

  20. Wow, running the ball helps with QB protection issues? Who’da thunk? AR’s re-inventing the NFL here and I’m witnessing it!

  21. The shovel pass was a td if McCoy catches it.

  22. Anyone notice they scraped th WIDE 9 and all of the sudden we look at a NFL defense. Amazing how it took 5 games and 4 losses to scrap that f#$ing defense.

  23. Why so quiet in here ?..Oh We up 20…well that explains it

  24. Yes daggolden,
    I noticed we scraped that wide nine defense and our d-line plays much closer together and better. Asomghua is playing man to man and put cooley out the game. We’re also running the ball which is good, but our o-line is still too weak, because our redzone offense still sucks.

  25. First play Wide 9 they get 20 yards unbelievable.

  26. Lets play the safeties 20 yards deep now Juan. Let them march right down the field. lol

  27. I TOLD YALL WEEK 6 THE EAGLES WOULD PLAY THERE BEST OF THE YEAR… I ACTUALLY SAID WEEKS 6-8 THEY WOULD SHOW SIGNS OF A GREAT TEAM!!! LOOKS LIKE I WAS DEAD ON… AGAIN!!!

  28. Daggolden, are you serious??? This defense has looked incredible. I cant believe your tryna pull a negadelphian comment out of your back pocket as this defense dismantles the redskins offense… gimme a break bro

  29. Jon Hart. They scraped the Wide 9 and ran the f#$#in football thats the reason why they look better. They could of did this week 2.

  30. vinnietheevictor

    That’s 0-3 last 3 times inside the 20. Doink. Never seen that before.

    Thank goodness the Redskins are terrible.

  31. WHY DIDN’T WE JUST RUN THE BALL AND AT LEAST GET THE 3. HERE COMES THE MOMENTUM CHANGE. REID GETS AWAY FROM WHAT GOT HIM HERE; THE RUN – NOW HE GOES BACK TO THIS PASS HAPPY CRAP IN THE RED ZONE.

  32. Lets not keep running McCoy. He sucks.

  33. Looks like we gotta watch the TE Davis catch 50 balls today.

  34. vinnietheevictor

    This is exactly the same as the atl and sf games. This Wsh team should have been BURIED earlier…but they now more than alive at home.

    It was a bad pass to maclin (should have been picked) and then he through pass into another DLs face (about the 50th time this year)

    and now in comes Vince, who might be the only QB I like worse than Vick…good times

  35. vinnietheevictor

    Vince Fucking Young…..lollololollol

    I have to laugh.

  36. NOW THE INT IN REDSKIN REDZONE. HERE WE GO AGAIN

  37. I agree rocko, they need to run the ball more… #brokenrecord

  38. Nice Coleman play…

  39. vinnietheevictor

    I don;t care what happens with the plays as long as they’re 3 str8 runs.

    There is absolutely no need for another throw this game. Just runs. Run the clock out.

  40. GOOD JOB COLEMAN!

  41. LOL @ so transparent

  42. vinnietheevictor

    oh empty backfield and Vick throws his 3rd str8 terrible pass taking only 3 secs off the clock.

    Run much?

  43. vinnietheevictor

    handoff again…its about time, not yards!!

  44. vinnietheevictor

    he coulda cut up for 2 yrds and shorten the fg

  45. OUR O-LINE HAS NO PUSH FOR MCCOY UP THE MIDDLE AT ALL AND VICK IS STILL RUNNIN FOR HIS WITH THESE LIGHTWEIGHTS UP FRONT.

  46. vinnietheevictor

    Look at skins. Absolutely no fear of the quick hit from Vick.

  47. vinnietheevictor

    thank god we’re playing Grossman. That was a great throw.

    Now…lets see some more empty backfield!!

  48. KURT COLEMAN 3RD INT OF THE GAME! I BELIEVE COLEMAN HAS SOLIDIFIED HIS SPOT ON THE TEAM + HE LAYS THE WOOD AS WELL! GOOD JOB COLEMAN!

  49. LOOK AT THAT TERRIBLE OLINE PROTECTION FOR VICK; TERRIBLE.

  50. vinnietheevictor

    Beautiful. keep on throwing……get the ball with 1:45 to go in the Q…run 3 palys and there’s still time left.

    Frankly, I think that’s mathematically impossible. Kneel down 3 str8 times, and birds get out of the Q

  51. Shady might as well go to the locker room. He is done for the day. He had to much success in the 1st half and MM got jealous.

  52. vinnietheevictor

    oh Rocko…are you kidding me? He’s had fine protection all game. Qbs get sacked from time to time.

    There are 2 deals here.

    1 – we shouldn;t even be throwing the ball period.
    2 – in last 3 drives our 2 QBs went: bad pass missed by deangelo hall, doinked off guy;s head int, terrible int, another bad pass into wsh arms (dropped)

    can;t keep other teams around like that…esp on road….been a recurring theme all year.

    SHouldn;t matter here cause its the Grossman/Beck disaster show….though Beck will probably have a good drive here on emotion

  53. Birds are trying to take advantage of the way the redskins are playing defense… and being that the skins wont let us run the ball the birds are forced to throw…

  54. I agree vinnie!

  55. vinnietheevictor

    I’m pretty sure I could play better QB than this Washington duo.

  56. vinnietheevictor

    Lets go Buffalo!

    Ok look. Lets say eagles hold Wsh to a fg here….will be only 10 mins left…up 11 and wsh already wasted a timeout.

    Eagles get 2 drives…handoff each time and you’re going to run the skins out of time…….

    oh well…won;t matter now as the stupid skins wiping themselvesout….delay of game.

  57. vinnietheevictor

    ok…now eagles burn a TO. fabulous. just run run run run run run

  58. The Eagles have taken all the positive built up vibe from the first half and totally killed it with this 2nd half offensive debacle. This is all MM and his play calling.

  59. vinnietheevictor

    redskins dead here….fg screwup took out their will.

    they know game now over

  60. Wow it works again. Runing the ball.

  61. vinnietheevictor

    nice. Stop that clock with an incomplete pass.

    Keep Wsh alive. only up 2 tds with 7 mins to go. Stop that clock!!

    Fantastic!! WHat’s that about 4 passes 2 runs the last drive. perfect!!!!

    Holy shit this will NEVER win against a good team.

  62. No points in 2nd half or 4th quarter again. How can that be?

  63. I dont like that the eagles arent generating any points from these drives… It looks like andy is letting up again… like he always does in games like this…

  64. Vinne shut up man. You sound ridiculous; plus you’re a falcons fan you bum.

  65. Exactly Jon and Dag. He’s letting up with a 14 pt lead and no points in the second half. This is utterly ridiculous. I still say fire him.

  66. BirdoBeamen
    October 11, 2011 – 12:37 pm

    This is why we shouldn’t argue with Canadians about American Football.

    Stick to hockey chump.

  67. vinnietheevictor

    remember…if not for incomplete pass last drive…if had been a run instead (even for a loss) then there’d be at 2:15 tight now, not 2:44

  68. Thats the wide 9 for you, a QB sneak up the middle. ANDY STILL HAS TO GO. FIRE EM.

  69. vinnietheevictor

    thats the diff between kneeling down and having to get a 1st down

  70. We all know the scenario. When does Washington get the ball back? With 1 45 left at thier own 40?

  71. #25 The Closer…lol….

  72. vinnietheevictor

    we’d be at 2:00 min warning now….and at best wsh gets ball with less than 1:00….right now they can still get ball back with almost 2:00….becasue of one inc.

    but I know nothing

  73. LOL – Reid almost horked up a burger when McCoy jabbed him.

  74. Now that’s the smartest thing you said ( but I know nothing ) all day

  75. Well a win is a win. 2 weeks to get ready for Dallas Sun night.

  76. That wasnt a first down are you serious? What did they look at on review? I thought he was 2 yards past the marker.

  77. GAME OVER………BITCHES

  78. Gotta give ‘em credit when they earn it and they did. I never thought the Eagles D would stop let alone own the the skins running game today but they did! My hats off to the D for coming up big time!

  79. We Have our safeties for the future!!! Great Aggressive play by both of them!!! I TOLD YALL WEEK 6 WAS WHEN WE’D PLAY LIKE A GOOD TEAM.. I SAID WEEKS 6-8… I WAS SO RIGHT…

  80. I have a good feel for this team now… This defense is strong… and they were still using the wide9 but in a situational way which is smart.. im about to head to pj whelihans to celebrate this win..

  81. BTW.. WHERE IS PAUL “KING NEGADELPHIAN” MAN… HES BEEN MIA THIS WHOLE GAME MAYBE BECAUSE HE PICKED AGAINST THE EAGLES AND WAS WRONG AS USUAL… IS HE EVER RIGHT?

  82. JH, it was one game. Let’s not get out of hand. Let’s see if they can keep it going for 4-5 games. O points second half, sloppily played game.

  83. Hey Jon – Chill pal, That’s 1 reasonably well played game, against the Skins, in 5. It’s going in the right direction which, for this team, is huge given what’s been happening.
