Hey Carson, Show Your Patience Early, Then…..

The Eagles will have their work cut out for them this weekend.  Of course they’ve got a find a way to block Aaron Donald.  They’ve got to know where he is on each snap and they’ve got to get him blocked.

Their next challenge will be eliminating mistakes.  Execution isn’t easy when you didn’t play any preseason games and you have key players sidelined with injuries, but they still have to get the job done.  A lot of it falls on Eagles franchise quarterback Carson Wentz, as it did last week. He’s got to make better decisions and he must resist being impatient with the football.  He must be willing to take what the defense gives him.  If a five-yard route to Zach Ertz or Dallas Goedert is open he should take it.  It’s going to open up the deep plays as the game goes on.

Carson, go ahead and take what the defense gives you.  Don’t be so greedy to the point where you’ve got to have everything on every play.  He’s got to be more patient.   He’s got to let the game come to him.  You don’t try to do everything all at once. Just be more patient because you’ve got some big play receivers out there in DeSean Jackson and Jalen Reager.  Both of those guys can make big plays for him.  He’s got deep threats and he knows he can work underneath all day long to Ertz, Dallas Goedert and Miles Sanders.  He just needs to be patient.  Take what the defense give him.

Wentz should have a big game every time he walks out there with all these weapons, if he will be patient.  He should start off the game getting the football out of his hands.  Put together a couple of long drives with multiple throws to Ertz, Goedert, and Sanders.   The Rams defensive line will be out of gas by the time the Eagles put the ball into the end zone.

Once you tire out their defensive line, you can start looking further downfield.  If he will take what the defense gives him initially, it will allow him opportunities to get the ball to his big time playmakers downfield.  He would have a big game each week as long as he was patient.

Wentz can help out his offensive line, if he will get rid of the ball quickly, early in the game.  He shouldn’t start the game relying on routes which require seven step drops.  Work the defense over with the short throws, then as the game continues, he should start going up top for Jackson and Reagor.

  1. Tough Matchup Ca this agressovecand athletic Defense of the Rams… Their Safety Tandem and LB’s Corp are very Athletic & Physical and will match up well with the Eagles TE’s, RB’s out of the Backfield and can make Plays sideline to sideline…
    I think the best attack early on is a lot of Trap, quick hitting Runs up between the Tackles to take advantage of their penetrating D/L and to neutralize Aaron Donald a little bit…
    Screens and Wide, slow developing Runs will not work very well versus this Front 7..
    Beat them up the gut with Runs and then the Eagles will have sone Ppay Action opportunities down the field after getting their Defense tired and in their heels but this will take patience and a commitment to the Power Run Plays by the Eagles, Can Coach Pedersen stay the course with this will likely determine the Winner?

  2. I’m in agreement with hac. The preseason game last week was vs a weak offense and the dee was stellar enough, when not dealt short fields. That’s the key ; the birds can not put it on the ground or carelessly take a sack. Lane will help. Jp will be my focus, because Father Time is undefeated. Carson will have sanders ertz Goddard and Reagor ; djax. Needs step it up. That’s more than dallas had and they slugged toe to toe. I’ll presume we look a lot cleaner and comfortable with a good game plan. Not disappointed by 70% throws. The rams are playing a 10:00 am game ; jump on them and imo we have the better qb . Let’s play Eagle football and resurrection of the bandwagon. Coach needs trust deuce and run the rock ,take the rams from pinning their ears back, by using disguised formations with two tight ends. The long ball wasn’t exploited by Dallas, if the birds can get Carson protection, I think Reagor and djax keep the safeties occupied and free the box for sanders to create mixture. In a feel good win 27-17

      1. Hac declared post game that all u bandwagon dummy fans were over reacting to what was a preseason game . Desert thought about it for a few days and agreed with HACs common sense and level approach to fandom

  3. No Teams had any Pre-Season Games or updated Tape on Schemes, Players or Match-ups .. its all about Execution and a solid Game Plan and ability to make adjustments on the Fly.. Teams with better overall Coaching will do better early on this Season

    1. Well that proved false week one dummy- Pederson is an excellent coach and lost. Arians lost, Reich lost…
      By saying preseason like means that timing was off for everybody- wrinkles weren’t ironed out. Paul, all kidding aside- If i’m not mistaken your kids are grown, you are doing well in your country setting and you love sports- how bout you do a volunteer assistant with a local HS team. Put some time in and see what exactly it takes to get a team ready- how some things are out of your control- I think you’d come back to gcobb with a whole new perspective

      1. My Coaching Days are over for now as I did this for 15 Years while my Kids were growing up and participating in Sports..
        I actually still Play and Coach Sports thru Our Local Adult Recreation Leagues which run some great programs for Adults here ..
        I play Soccer,Basketball and Bowl in 10 Week Fall and Spring Leagues so I stay pretty busy .. Covid Cancelled our Summer Soccer/Softball Seasons and Fall Soccer is supposed to Start in October but I’m going to sit this Fall season out and wait until Covid Is minimized, Our County has seen a real spike in Cases since the App State College Kids & University returned last month
        Once I retire from Work In a few years, I would entertain volunteering with the
        Local community in many areas, I
        Injured my right knee 2 + Years ago (torn lateral and medial Meniscus) playing Basketball and I have to be careful when playing and wear a knee brace when playing ball or even while working in the yard or hiking for more support
        I have little ligament left in my right knee
        and a bad case of Osteoarthritis with years of being active…
        It is what it is at my age of 57, so I participate, but am careful when playing and my goal is to keep playing until I’m
        60 Years old but I’m not sure if I will be to make it with my Knee

        1. I’m not asking u to run a marathon. Get involved in a decision making capacity with competitive sports. That way when the HC calls a play and it loses 7 yards u can understand it wasn’t a dumb call. There was reason behind it… it just didn’t work.

          1. Usually Poor execution along with a bad Play Call at the wrong time results in negative Results
            I thing the Rams/Eagles will come down to which OL protect their QB’s better over the course of the Game
            The Eagles DL has to play a much stronger Game than last versus an average Washington OL in terms of hitting and getting g Goff off his spots
            Goff is not nearly as effective when throwing on the move or when’s he’s been hit around some, the Eagles need to generate and win the Turnover Battle
            I give an edge to the Rams Secondary vs the Eagles Receivers in this matchup, Eagles Offense needs to grind it out and run the Ball effectively and stay with it and then take their shots down the field when they can, but it can’t be a drop back 45-50 times Game Plan with the protection issues the Eagles currently have

            1. its not the play call paul– every play is designed to work! The same play that dummies call “bad call” when it doesn’t work, they cheer like crazy when it works. For example… was Philly Special a ‘good call’– of course because it worked. If Trey Burton sailed the ball over Foles head and we lost we’d be crying terrible call– “why did Pederson trust a TE with a throw at such a critical time”- Same w/how everybody says “wentz needs to throw the ball away”- i call BULL SHIT!!!!! He makes huge plays after avoiding the rush– I get so tired of fans being 20/20 after the play/game.

              1. Last week was a near-mortal blow to all Eagles fans and their beloved Birds. Watching them melt down and run through the garbage disposal like bacon grease was excruciating. It’s been a miserable week. All I can say is thank God last week was not a playoff game.

                Moving on, the Eagles do an opportunity to throw the Rams around today and take out some frustration. And I expect that is exactly what they will do.

                Yes, they return Land Johnson which is good. And Derek Barnett is coming back, so we can enjoy more of his lackluster play. Even Javon Hargrave could make an appearance. This is all fine and dandy. But the one who really could make a difference is none other than…

                Miles Sanders.

                He put up 1300 yards from scrimmage last year, and really didn’t get going until just before the halfway point of the season. If his hamstring holds up, we’re going to see a different and complete offense today and the rest of the year.

                Can you imagine that the Redskins only had to worry about Wentz handing off to Corey Clement and Boston Scott last week? No wonder that were teeing off on Wentz the entire game.

                This week, 26 will be in house. He’s a difference maker, both running and receiving. Imagine Dallas without Zeke or Minnesota without Dalvin Cook. That’s what the Eagles were last week.

                Now Carson did play like a clown Week 1, and if that continues he’s gonna find his way to the bench eventually. But he’ll have a LOT more help today when Sanders takes the field.

                Players to watch today: Miles, Reagor, Hargrave, Barnett, Robey-Coleman.

                Prediction: Birds pull out a thriller in OT: 32-26.

  4. Preseason games don’t count and scrubs play. Last week was a regular season game that counted and any poster that says otherwise needs to go to AA

    1. you obviously have been hibernating and don’t understand the state of the world today- no one said it was a preseason game dummy! I said it was like a preseason game- no timing, shitty execution, actually in the eagles case scrubs did play–
      Get over it — it was an ugly game– NFL even in a normal year is week to week– get off the ledge- we have things to tighten up- we have some personnel to shore up– but we have a very good qb and coach- we have a shot
