Positives In A Sea Of Ugly
This was preseason football at its worst.
But through the sloppy play there were some nice positives to take from this game.
Most of all was that Nick Foles looked much more settled in his second start.
Foles went 8/10 for 81 yards and a touchdown. He was much more decisive with his [...]
Its still very early in the preseason, but I have to say I’m getting a little concerned by the Eagles’ wide receiver situation.
Starters Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper have been battling injuries throughout Training Camp.
Cooper has a mysterious ankle injury, and has been seen in a boot, but he and the team continue to downplay [...]
One of the league’s most dysfunctional organizations, the Browns are now on their third different head coach in as many years.
Cleveland gave up on Rob Chudzinski after just one season, and replaced him with defensive-minded Mike Pettine.
The Browns also spent a first-round pick on a quarterback for the second time in three years, selecting [...]
Cause For Concern?
Nick Foles was unimpressive in his first action of the preseason.
Foles’ ability to protect the football, throwing just two interceptions last year, has been pretty well documented. In this game however, Foles was anything but protective of the ball.
The third-year quarterback threw two interceptions, and nearly threw a third.
On the first drive of [...]
What I Want To See
Alan Barbre And The Offensive Line: Alan Barbre is going to be the starter at right tackle for at least the first month of the season, and we’ll get our first good look at the offensive line with him in place and suspended Lane Johnson out.
Barbre by all accounts played very well [...]
Ryan Tannehill quietly had a solid sophomore season, throwing for just under 4,000 yards and 24 touchdowns. The year, Tannehill has got to cut down on his turnovers. He threw 17 last year, and if he could cut that total down to 10-12, it could be the difference in a victory or two.
Miami made [...]
On Saturday night, disappointing reliever Phillippe Aumont completed another horrifying appearance in the major leagues.
Aumont was lit up by the Nationals for six earned runs on eight hits and a walk in just two innings of work. And he was quickly sent back down to Triple-A following the conclusion of the game.
Aumont has been up and [...]
It just gets worse and worse.
A team that is destined to miss the playoffs for the third consecutive year, currently residing in the basement of the N.L. East with a miserable 47-61 record was unable to make a single move before the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline.
That’s right, Phillies’ village idiot General Manager Ruben Amaro [...]
The left-handed reliever has drawn some interest from teams in need of bullpen help, most notably the Cincinnati Reds.
Bastardo was off to a rough start in 2014, struggling heavily with his command during the first two months of the season. He walked a combined 19 batters in April and May, but has really settled [...]
For a guy selected in the first-round, Marcus Smith has generated very little buzz or excitement among Eagles’ fans. Not since Danny Watkins was selected in the first round of 2011 have the Eagles had a first-round pick come out with less hype.
All along, Chip Kelly and the Eagles’ coaching staff have stated that [...]
