Thoughts From Eagles-Dolphins

Up-And-Down Starters Pulled After One Quarter
Thursday’s preseason game was thoroughly entertaining through the first quarter. The offense flashed on several drives, with Carson Wentz hooking up with both of his new receivers for touchdowns. The defense struggled and got gashed for several large plays, but had some positive moments as well.
And then on the first […]

Doug Pederson Gives LeGarrette Blount A Strong Endorsement

Eagles’ head coach Doug Pederson addressed the media on Tuesday, during the session Pederson was asked about the rumors that veteran running back LeGarrette Blount could be on the roster bubble.
Pederson quickly put any talk of Blount’s release to bed with a strong, emphatic endorsement of the former Patriot.
“The guy’s a beast of a runner,” […]

Eagles Trade Matt Tobin To Seattle For 2018 Fifth-Round Pick

Howie Roseman loves making August trades to teams in need.
The Seattle Seahawks lost their starting left tackle for the season last week, and were in need of an experienced tackle. And so the Eagles dealt them a tackle with starting experience.
The Birds sent backup tackle Matt Tobin to Seattle for a fifth-round pick in 2018. […]

Will LeGarrette Blount Make The 53-Man Roster?

Over the weekend, Matt Lombardo of NJ Advance Media stated that it “wouldn’t be surprising” if veteran running back LeGarrette Blount is among the Eagles’ final cuts in the next few weeks.
The argument here would be that undrafted rookie free agent Corey Clement has caught the team’s attention in training camp and the preseason, and […]

Thoughts From Eagles-Bills

Ronald Darby Provides Instant Spark
It didn’t take new starting cornerback Ronald Darby long to make his presence known.
Darby came up with one of the biggest highlights from tonight’s game, pulling down an interception from Tyrod Taylor, and returning it deep into Buffalo territory. Darby also broke up a pass earlier in the quarter.
It’s clear Darby […]

Eagles-Bills: What I’m Watching

First Look At Carson Wentz Without Jordan Matthews
I was no fan of Jordan Matthews. I advocated trading him, and don’t view him as a loss of any real consequence, at least on paper.
But regardless of how I, or anyone, felt about what Matthews was as a player, the fact of the matter is that Carson […]

Carson Wentz And Eagles Need A Running Game

Yesterday at the Eagles practice they spent a great deal of time on the running game, but they were unable to run the ball effectively against their defense.  The Birds were also unable to run the ball well on Thursday night against the Packers.  Some of the problem with their running game was all the […]

Report: Eagles Trade Jordan Matthews, Third Rounder To Bills For Corner Ronald Darby

Well, the Eagles have a made a move to get cornerback.
The Birds traded wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick to the Buffalo Bills for cornerback Ronald Darby.
Darby has been a starter for two years, and was a second-round pick of the Bills back in 2015. He had a strong rookie year, but […]

Thoughts From Eagles-Packers

Wentz Sharp On Only Drive
Carson Wentz and the first-team offense were only on the field for one possession, but they certainly made the most of it.
Wentz went 4-4 for 56 yards and a touchdown on the drive. The second-year quarterback was peppered by the Green Bay pass rush several times, but was able to hang […]

Eagles-Packers: What I’m Watching

Any Hope On The Corners?
This isn’t a game to be focusing on Carson Wentz.
Wentz will likely make little more than a cameo, playing one or two series. Whether he performs well or not in this game is mostly irrelevant.
The first thing I want to see is how well, if at all, the corners are able […]
