Bryan Smith was a 3rd rounder too, good thing we kept him around because how "high" of a pick we made him... CJ Gaddis was a 5th rounder, how long did he last on the team?

Jeez. Its a good thing that DTN isn't coming from some I-AAA school like McNeese State. Its a good thing that DTN out-weighs Smith by about 30 pounds. Its a good thing that most didn't think DTN was a LB coming out of college. Its a good thing that DTN actually has strength. Its a good thing that DTN actually has pass rush moves. DTN =/= Bryan Smith.

Whatever, keep working your medial job at a hotel

Please know what the **** a word means before you use it. You're looking for "menial". I happen to enjoy my job 90 percent of the time. I sincerely apologize to you for finding a job right after graduation so I could start paying off loans while I look for a career in my field. I'm clearly the only one who has ever done this and this clearly makes me a loser.

where people treat you like the piece of crap you are you loser.

RARRRRRRRRR. You don't know me, therefore it'd be impossible for you to determine whether or not I'm a "piece of crap".

Sniper, I wish I was as cool as you are

Were, not was. Also, thank you. I've got a degree, a job, and a girlfriend of over six years. What do you have going on? Maybe your parents will take you to Chucky Cheese for your 16th birthday, eaglesfan45.

Third round picks nearly always make the team.

I don't see where I argued to the contrary. What I did argue, and you'd only know this if you knew how to ******* read, was that he's not guaranteed snaps over someone else just because he got drafted higher.

They don't have a 1-AAA level.

DTN =/= Bryan Smith.

But Smith was a third-round pick, thus he was a "high" pick, thus he must be good!

Do you think maybe it is those attributes that will keep him on the team then, rather than where he was drafted? If I were a third round pick I would totally make the team with this logic:

he is going to make the team simply because of the spot he was drafted in.

DTN was drafted in the 3rd round to play DE. Bryan Smith was as well. Since what you were saying was that he is slated to make the roster because of draft position, the two are quite similar in that regard, both 3rd round DE's.

So was that a typo or what?

Hey do you want to know something interesting, Bryan Smith made the team his rookie season, he just never played.

The only 3rd round pick in Andy Reid's draft history to not make the team was Chris Gocong and he was coming from a I-AA school as a defensive end making the switch to linebacker. DTN is not making the switch to linebacker in case you haven't noticed.

I didn't major in hospitality management.

And have fun paying off those student loans, I don't have to pay anything for college.

My sincerest congratulations on gaining admittance to a community college. We're all incredibly impressed. I'm just not sure how you did it considering you're not an adult yet.

Considering I won't be doing this much longer, thanks, I suppose. Again, you don't know me, so you're really in no position to judge whether I'm mediocre, above-average, below-average, etc...

Just because a player is drafted high, he will still have to battle with Sapp and Hall to make the roster. Even if he does make the roster, it will still be an uphill battle for him to see any playing time. I don't see Cole coming off the field often. I haven't heard of him taking reps at LDE.

Parker has the ability to slide inside. Last season he wasn't called to do it because Abiramiri and Howard both slid inside last season.

Parker's style of play does not bode well to playing DT at all, sorry, but you are flat out wrong there. DTN and Graham can, as well as Abiamiri, but that is it.

You never know....

I too am a fan of Kafka, have been since the pick, and think he is great insurance in a worst case scenario if Kolb doesn't pan out. His mechanics are very good, with a quick release, and offers some added athletecism, and can run with some power. I honestly think he could develop into a starter down the road, and a situation much like Atlanta had with Schaub could be possible, though I am not saying he will be the type of QB he is, I think it is a definite possibility.

Also GE, I was aware of the "meltdown" when it was going on, did see it, just wasn't posting as I honestly didn't have much time, I was on vacation to Virginia since Monday, but was reading over the goings on in this thread, but I guess there was more in the RDT, but this is the last I'll mention it since we are trying to move on, I just hope its his last time on here.

But since he is gone, I think it may be possible to have a legitimate conversation about Kolb and Maclin without things getting out of control, as it seems I am in the minority, if not alone, in my thinking that both will be successful. And since I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who expects a high level of play from Kolb and Maclin (higher than DeSean in a year or two), the only thing that'd make those discussions going out of hand would be me acting as Thumper did, but I can handle it and not go postal and homertastic, so I encourage a breath of fresh air into that debate, if anyone feels like going over it again.

Something about a shooting at a bar.

Upon further research, here's what I could find:http://www.torontosun.com/sports/football/2010/06/25/14523161-torsun.html

Is this the start of the end of the line for Philadephia Eagles backup quarterback Michael Vick?

Vick, who has become something of a social leper and who spent close to two years in jail for his involvement in a disgusting dog-fighting ring, could be in serious trouble with both the police and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for a shooting following celebrations of his 30th birthday in Virginia.

According to reports, the victim in the shooting is Quanis Phillips, one of the co-defendants in Vick’s dog-fighting trial, and that he was shot after a confrontation with Vick.

Vick’s lawyer, Larry Woodward, said Vick was not involved and was not present when the shooting occurred.

According to the Daily Press, Phillips showed up at the party even though Vick is not supposed to be associating with any of his dog-fighting co-defendants. It led to a confrontation between Phillips and Vick inside the party, that the confrontation then moved outside, and that’s when Phillips was shot.

A spokesman for Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital confirmed that Phillips was admitted early this morning and was listed in good condition.

Police say the victim and witnesses were uncooperative.

Time will tell whether Vick was personally involved or not.

Vick may walk on official charges but Goodell has shown he takes a hard line regarding off-field incidents.

Vick is already on thin ice and his future regarding the NFL may be in jeopardy.

That article makes Vick seem more suspicious than the ones I read, so keep that in mind, but like it mentions at the end, it may not matter because of Goodell's stance when it comes to off-field issues, especially with players with a history. There will probably have to be a meeting between Vick and Goodell and that will decide what happens in the future.

cunningham06
06-26-2010, 11:10 AM
Unless more incriminating news comes out about this I don't think Goodell will do anything to Vick. Vick's made mistakes, but he handles adverse situations pretty well (at least better than someone like Pacman) especially with the media. I'm hoping he wasn't involved because it really seemed like he had turned things around after prison.

I love Vince Young, but assaulting someone over talking **** about the Longhorns is absolutely ********. I hope Vick wasn't involved in his case, but its stupid for someone with his history to put himself in that situation.

I can see the team doing that well, but right now I'd say with the transition, and uncertainty, a spot 16th-20th is more realistic at this point, and if the team can perform well in the season, will (obviously) work its way up.

I lump myself in there as well, right now I'd say because of the elements of the team that are unproven, we are a middle of the road team that has potential to be a playoff team, though I don't see Championship contention this year. I can see the Eagles making the playoffs as a wildcard in the best case scenario, and could potentially win a game, maybe two (though I think that'd be asking too much), in the playoffs. As the season nears, I am feeling a season of 7-9 to 9-7, honestly. We could be as low as 6-10 or 5-11, but it'd take another rash of injuries to be 5-11, IMO.

The team is very young and now lacks a lot of veteran leadership. If the right young leaders can emerge on this team, and the young talent comes together, they could peak at the right time. There is a deep and talented set of weapons on O, a pretty good looking OLine, a D that can pressure the ball, and some good talent in the secondary. To me, Bradley's recovery and the development of the rest of the LB's is crucial. If the Eagles have a weak spot, it's defending the run and the intermediate passing game. That is an obvious spot where they can be exploited. In my mind, they can score points and move the ball with Kolb. Just a matter of the D making plays.

I'm not ready to say the Eagles have the best (or top 3) 4 man line in the league. We have three very, very good players and great depth, however, until Graham does what we expect he will, I won't assume he is going to (in the context of a conversation like this, I really do think he is going to be a monster) until he shows the flashes that we expect he will. Once he comes through, then I can see this DL being mentioned as tops among the 4-3s league-wide. That being said, there aren't any truly elite 4-3 DL units as a whole after the Vikings, so I do see the Eagles DL as being mentioned near the top even without Graham being a proven commodity yet.
Im still trying to explore the idea of our secondary unit being succesful. Corner to me is the biggest question mark with Samuel being our starter and opposite him we have you fill in the blank.I have to agree and say we will have a fringe playoff year.

I'm trying to explore it too, but I can't see it being a bright spot on the team. Best case scenario is that it is a unit that can have its flaws masked by pressure delivered by the front 7. No matter who is in at RCB, there is a downgrade at the position from the seemingly endless supply of great cover corners we have had at the position. Throughout AR's years here, JJ and then McDermott have always had at least one great cover corner that helps enable them to dial up the pressure, this is the first year the defense has lacked that lockdown type corner, and I don't think it will have a positive effect on the defense. As a result, we could see further exploit of one of our weaknesses that bsaza mentioned, the intermediate passing game. One thing we have that will help though, is a newer look LB corp that will better be able to handle coverage duties, however, because the team may be forced to blitz more if the front 4 can't get pressure, it will still leave gaps in coverage.

The success of the defense rides predominantly on the success of our DL if the DL can get pressure against the pass, it will help ease the responsibilities of the LB corp, and enable them to do a better job in both coverage and run support. Not only that, but manufactured pressure on the QB can make it harder for the QBs to make the quick decisions, and help ease the coverage responsibilities of our secondary. And as always, if our DL can hold the POA and make plays in the running game, it keeps the back 7 clean and enables them to use their speed and make more plays.

bsaza2358

One thing I'll say about the secondary is that if the Eagles found it to be a massively important issue, they would have invested much more heavily in it in the draft. Though I suppose that when they drafted, Marlon Jackson hadn't torn up his leg yet. Even so, if they felt depth was a super substantial issue, they would have invested more in it and not in things like #3 TE's and #3 QB's in Round 4. They got a few guys, but it wasn't an effort like in 2004 when they went DB in the first and twice in the second.

Though I trust the organization for the most part, they have been known to overestimate what they have at ceertain positions, or misjudge players completely. I may very well be wrong, our secondary could play very well, but as it stands now, it looks most likely to me that it will be a weakness, which considering what we have at the secondary, isn't too bad. I think the hole at RCB will just be hard to fill with what we have. Combine that with Allen expected to have some rookie mistakes, this is the area of the Eagles I have the lowest expectations for. Also bsaza, keep in mind that they did use 4th rounders on a third string TE and QB, but before them they picked Trevard Lindley, so that makes me think they viewed it as a bigger need than at least those two positions anyway. But I get the point you are trying to get accross. The reason they didn't go all out like in 2004 is because we have pieces in the secondary expected to be with the team longer than our situation in 2004. Still, considering they used a second and fourth rounder for the secondary, it shows you they recognized the needs were there.

The Eagles will have to get pressure on the QB to help out the secondary. If that doesn't happen, they will get scored on in bunches, and it won't be pretty. The schedule this year is pretty brutal. The NFC East is better and the out of conference isn't that helpful. However, even if they don't go to the playoffs, this year will probably represent a low point, to be followed by a high as a lot of young players enter their primes simultaneously.

I don't know. I think the Eagles are putting an emphasis on being able to get pressure by simply rushing four. They dont want to commit too many players on blitzes. Our LB corp has a new emphasis on speed, which will help ten fold in coverage and let the LBs flow to the ball.

I've made this comparison many times, but I'll make it again. The 2010 Eagles defense will be extremely similar to the 2009 Colts defense. They also has a defensive line that could rush the passer with four and had LBs that were a little undersized, but much more athletic.

Our secondary will be able to hold their own for the most part, I think. I'm expecting much better safety play than we got last year.

How do you guys think Kolb will play for us? I honestly don't see us taking down Dallas as hard as it is to say, but i think if Kolb plays as well as Andy thinks he will then we can easily get one of the two wild cards.

bsaza2358
07-07-2010, 02:04 PM
I think Kolb will be efficient, but he will also be supported by more runs. McCoy and Bell and Weaver should get plenty of carries to help open up space for Kolb. I see the Eagles running more to protect themselves and their defense. That is the early likelihood. However, long term (i.e. end of year), they will open things up more and return to a 65/35 run/pass split.

I would love this, but I'll believe it when I see it with Reid as head coach. Our interior offensive line is a big question mark to me. It and our secondary are far and away the weakest spots on the team.

We don't know for sure that these areas are weak, but we know that they are areas that need to improve. That will come from coaching, scheming, and putting the right players on the field.

Vick was not initially a person of interest, but the prosecutor is releasing info based on witness testimony and video evidence. It's looking more and more like he is going to get caught up in this nonsense. It's all his fault, too. Why is he having a party where anyone can roll up and buy a ticket for $50? Why is he having a party at all? He should be getting in shape for his contract year season. What a doofus.

eaglesalltheway
07-12-2010, 06:11 AM
So Vick can't leave the state... has anyone heard how long this may be enforced?

Either way, this makes the team truly re-evaluate Vick's standing within the organization. If Vick is still under orders to reamain in PA, he could only potentially play in 8 games, and considering it was arguable he isn't worth the 5 mil over 16 games, there is no way he is worth the same amount if he's only available for 8. I'm sure a decision won't be made for a while, but I'm surius to know how the rest of you think this will pan out.

I personally think the chances of him being released are pretty high, like 75-85%. As more information about this unfolds, the more involved Vick seems. Not directly with the shooting, but in the circumstances that lead up to it, and that could be enough for the NFL to come down on him hard.Personally, I'm at the point where I don't care whether or not he stays, if he stays, he isn't a big enough impact player for me to get excited over, if he goes, I didn't have any attachments to him, and he wasn't a great player, so I won't be disappointed if he would be gone, however, its not like he sucked enough for me to be happy if he left. I'd probably feel a little better if he left (if any information that would further paint him in a negative light would arise) just because he isn't a great player and has put a blemish on the organization if you ask me.

Eh, not really. His traveling has been at the discretion of his probation officers ever since he was released from jail. I see close to zero chance that his probation officers would prohibit him from traveling with the team for away games. Since it's part of his career I see no reason for them to inhibit his travel in this case. After all, they didn't last season.

That being said, I know they say they have "full confidence in Vick," but the Eagles are definitely mulling over releasing him. As of right now, I think he stays on the team, but if even a small issue arises between now and the season, you can bet he's out of here.

Training Camp is less than two weeks away, and I must say I think this is how Jewish kids feel leading up to Hanukkah (sp?). I can't wait to see how the offense is going to come together this year, and TC is the first place we'll be able to get a glimpse of how that will all work out. And with the new young faces on D, TC will be extrememely important. But first and formeost, I want to stay as healthy as possible. That is what killed us last year.

I may not be able to be at almost every practice like I was last year because work is busier than this time last year, but I will be there as much as possible. I expect to be able to be at around half of the practices, maybe more depeding on what goes on with work.

Graham is a long way from signing his rookie deal, league sources say. So far, Eagles general manager Howie Roseman and Grahamís agent, Joel Segal, have engaged in what a league source described as only "early conversations." Based on the rookie salary structure, Graham is due about $14.8 million in a signing bonus alone -- making him one of the most expensive rookies signed by the Eagles since they drafted Donovan McNabb in 1999.

Graham's just trying to keep the offensive tackles' confidence up for a bit, so he's going to sit out a couple days.

Graham's just trying to keep the offensive tackles' confidence up for a bit, so he's going to sit out a couple days.

The important thing will be getting Nate Allen in camp. There's a pretty big learning curve at Safety, but probobally not as much at DE. If Graham misses a few days he should be ok, but Allen really needs to get the pads on and start learning on Monday. Hopefuly since Brian Price signed (the pick befor Allen) it won't be too hard to get him signed.

I agree with this for the most part, the only change I would make istaking Howard out at Tackle, After Tupou, there is a major dropoff in talent. There are also rumors that King Dunlap has futher strengthened himself and is up to 335 lbs, IDK about that, we'll have to see when he gets to Lehigh. I can't see the team keeping 7 LBs, and I still think Gaither is the final one to go. So my only changes are removing Gaither from the LB corp (maybe Keenan Clayton gets IRed), and then at Tackle, having Peters and Dunlap and Justice and Tupou.

Nate Allen signed last night to a 4 year deal, hopefully he can get in to Lehigh by the afternoon practice, maybe even this morning. Hopefully these first rounders will start getting signed so we can get Graham in here soon, though I don't think he'll be in camp for around a week, unfortunately.

Howard is definitely the one I was most unsure about. I just figured usually at least 1 UDFA makes the team and not only was Howard supposedly the most impressive UDFA in minicamp, but backup tackle is definitely a position that's up for grabs. Dunlap or even Tupou probably have the upper hand there though. As for 7 LBs, the team kept 7 LBs last season and also had much less depth and youth with Witherspoon, Jordan, Trotter, Mays, Gocong, Fokou and Tracy White all on the team at one point if I remember correctly. I could definitely see them keeping those 7 guys I mentioned, especially since they all look to be able to play special teams.

On a different note, I'm glad I decided to keep Alex Hall off the roster because he was cut today to make room for Nate Allen.

eaglesalltheway
07-28-2010, 09:48 AM

07-28-2010, 10:27 AM
They did still get Trevard Lindley and Ernie Sims out of the deal. Granted they could both end up sucking as well but right now it looks like Sims is a better fit for the defense than Gocong and Lindley is a possible replacement for Brown. Obviously the latter is extremely optimistic and wishful thinking.

Next week's practices start at 8:15 in the morning, so getting out there around 7:15-7:30 would ensure you get a good spot, and even if you show up a little after that you can find good spots, whether it be along the fence or in the stands. If you are in a small group you could even get there shortly before it starts, honestly. There are three practice fields adjoining eachother, and there are signs up that tell you which fields the teams will be on most, but look for the cameras, those will give you a clue where the most important parts of the practices will be going on. Parking and admission is free, you only have to spend money on merchandise or food. You can bring food and drink, it would save you money, but if you don't feel like lugging around a cooler, soda is 3 dollars, water is 2, and they have a lemonade stand, but its ****** gritty lemonade, so I'd stay away from it. The chicken fingers are good, IDK what they cost though, probably about 7 bucks. There aren't really places to hang out, but you can sit pretty much anywhere near the parking lot or the area around the practice fields. They do let people tailgate, but (and IDK if it even matters) they don't allow alcohol. If you do bring a cooler, they will check it. Its also a smart idea to bring sunglasses or a hat, or both.

I agree we made out like bandits in that trade. I thought Joe Mays had virtually no shot at making our team. I'm hesistant to hope on the Charles Scott bandwagon, but I was drinking his kool-aid after his junior year. Maybe he can return to that form.

Go_Eagles77
08-01-2010, 09:21 AM
I just posted this in the Training Camp thread but I'm sure you guys care more about it, so I'll post it here too.

I was at eagles camp yesterday and these are my impressions on the team:

Pretty much all the eagles drafted rookies have looked good to some extent so far, which is crazy considering there's 13 of them. I can see a scenario where all 13 of them make the team.
- DE Brandon Graham has been dominating the 1 on 1 drills, although he doesn't stand out as much in scrimmage drills, it was his first practice though.
- FS Nate Allen is a ball hawk in coverage and has more than held his own in run support, I think he can be more than the solid starter that many people think is his ceiling.
- DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim has looked good in 1 on 1 drills as well, although not as good as Graham. He has done a little better in the scrimmage drills from what I saw though, making a nice TFL. He also got in a huge fight, which is definitely a contrast to the quiet, reserved guy he is off the field.
- CB Trevard Lindley is very solid in coverage, but I think his lack of bulk is a pretty big concern. There was one play where Riley Cooper just threw him to the ground and was wide open for a huge catch.
- LB Keenan Clayton is playing SAM for the eagles, which I found pretty interesting considering he might not even be 230 pounds. I did see why though because he was excellent in coverage while also being pretty physical, he did whiff on a tackle though.
- QB Mike Kafka looked solid, especially for a 4th round rookie. He was more accurate than Vick, who has looked a little bit more accurate than I thought he was. Kafka should be a good backup in the future.
- TE Clay Harbor made one really nice catch leaping in the middle of traffic, he and Cornelius Ingram make pretty nice depth behind Brenct Celek.
- WR Riley Cooper could win the 4th WR spot and add a new dimension to the already potent eagles weapons. He also got into today, his was with Ellis Hobbs. I'm fine with this as long as they make up afterward.
- LB Jamar Chaney looked good running sideline to sideline and in run support. He's still the 3rd string MLB though and I hope he can make the team.
- S Kurt Coleman had a nice interception, hadn't noticed him much other than that, but I don't think he got beat at all.
I'll mention Charles Scott a little bit later, I didn't see enough of Ricky Sapp or Jeff Owens to comment on them.

As for non rookies:
- Kevin Kolb impressed me a lot. Not only with his play on the field but the way he interacted with the other players off the field, he seems like everyone respects him a lot. There was one play where he ran out of the pocket and was running along the sideline when Kurt Coleman comes over to kind of run him out of bounds since you can't hit a QB, and Kolb stiff armed him in the face. This got a huge reaction from the crowd and Coleman knew he couldn't do anything about it.
- Ernie Sims looked fantastic in the first live practice of the year. He was flying around and hit sticking people with ease. I think he can definitely be a come back player this year, though I still have my doubts.
- For those who still think the eagles don't have a power runner, at least one of Mike Bell and Charles Scott will make the team and both run the ball with a lot of authority.
- DeSean Jackson, prior the injury of course, was lighting it up. Hauling in 2 bombs, 1 being a diving catch.
- Jeremy Maclin and LeSean McCoy both look to take steps forward in their 2nd year.

I could keep going on, but I'm sure I already typed more than most people care about haha. I'm probably coming off as a huge homer too.

Philly.com (http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/moving_the_chains/Graham_disagrees_with_Cowboys_Bryant.html)


Brandon Graham knows he'll have to take the defensive linemen out to dinner.

Other than that, he hasn't seen much hazing as a rookie with the Eagles.

But if his teammates asked Graham to carry their shoulder pads, he would - unlike Dez Bryant.

Graham explained why he disagreed with Bryant's move to not carry the pads of teammate Roy Williams.

"I'm used to the hazing part because that's what I was brought up on - being hazed, when I first got there [Michigan] as a freshman," Graham said during an interview with WIP. "It's a continuous thing. It's just all about respect. That's all. You should respect the ones that have been there before you. If I was Dez Bryant, I would have did it, because it's not anything that they're trying to do that's a bad thing. It's just a fun experience to go through because later on, there'll be memories."

Graham went on to say that Bryant sent the wrong message to his new teammates.

"It's a big stamp on you, saying that you're selfish, that you wouldn't fight for your teammates, because him saying that he's here for the Super Bowl and stuff, that's a lot of talk for him," Graham said. "He's a selfish guy if he doesn't do what they ask him to do because he knows it's going to come. He knows coming in, that's what you have in the back of your mind. 'I'm a rookie again. I know I'm about to get hazed.' But some people just really don't like that stuff and you can't get around it."

Alright, so I finally have been able to see more of Kolb the past week.

One of my buddies that used to work with me is a diehard Eagles fan and saves Eagles games on his DVR, and I got a chance to really put the eyeball on Kolb, based on his 2 games last year, his preseason game this year, and his preseason games last year.

I'm sorry guys, I just don't see it. He stares down his targets. He reads the defense, determines where he wants to go with the ball before the hike, and he goes there. And thats it. He doesn't look off safeties, he just tries to fit it in there.

I will give him this, he is very accurate, and he guesses correctly most of the time. But after 3+ years in the game, you want to see a qb make some progressions, and he doesn't do it.

I expect him to start out this year hot, but once teams get some more tape on him, and learn how to disguise their coverages into tricking him, he's gonna hit a low point. I'll be interested to see how he adjusts to that.

That will be the key, if he can adjust to the adjustments, then maybe he'll prove me wrong. I won't deny he has potential, but his arm and him staring down his targets are 2 areas of concern to me. I'm not sold like everyone else is but I have been wrong before.

If I were a DC, my gameplan on Kolb would be to ultimately force him to consistently throw it deep (ie take away his underneath routes), and disguise the coverages into selling him his hot when its really not there. Play a lot of robber.

I did notice that he was forcing the ball a little bit and not going through his progressions enough, but he did acknowledge that after the game which leads me to believe he's working on it. That's definitely not something that can't be fixed. I think that will come with experience.

Alright so I'm in the middle of watching the Eagles/Bengals game right now and so far 3 things have stood out to me:

1. We need help at interior O-line. It's going to be a long year if we don't get better play at center and guard. I understand we've had plenty of injuries but someone's gonna need to step up. It especially has an effect on Shady who will be hard pressed to have the breakout sophomore season we're all hoping for if he's not getting any blocking.

2. Kolb needs to start looking off defenders. Way too many times I've noticed him staring down his receiver, which results in double and even triple coverages. Other than that he's looked pretty good.

3. Our depth at corner scares me. In a division like ours where teams are loaded at receiver we need at least three capable corners and I'm not seeing that right now. Hobbs and Hanson both look bad. The combination of Owens and Ochocinco have been beating them all game.

Go_Eagles77
08-22-2010, 05:26 PM
The interesting thing about corner is we have a lot of pretty good nickel/dime guys but only one starter. Asante is obviously the starter at LCB but we need one of Hobbs/Hanson/Patterson/Lindley/Harris to step up and win that RCB job. It shouldn't be Hanson, the guy is pretty good in coverage and solid against the run but he just doesn't have the speed to play on the outside, he got beat deep in each of the last two games because he just isn't very fast. His one and only position should be nickel (or dime). Patterson didn't look too bad on Friday, I think he has a much better grip on a roster spot than I thought heading into TC.

Yeah, I shouldn't have said depth because we have good depth, but like you said we lack a bonafide starter opposite of Asante and it showed against a team like Cincy, who presents two big threat receivers. I fear we will face the same problem when we face Bryant/Austin or Nicks/Smith.

Not only do we have Graham and Cole starting, but our "backup" DEs both have starting experience and are very good pass rushers, while still being solid against the run. Add in DTN and Sapp, and our DEs are going to get as much pressure as we've ever seen.

See some of us knew this was going to happen with how bad our RCB play is...our nickle and dime guys are awesome, but they cannot start.

Hopefully Trevard Lindley ends up making his way to starting rcb. Right now not so much, but hopefully he gets better as the season goes on.

Go_Eagles77
08-30-2010, 08:05 PM
The fact that he only played 1 year of college football not including his senior season, and still got drafted in round 6, makes me think he might have some potential. I really don't see him making the team though unless he kills it at returner on Thursday.

eaglesalltheway
08-31-2010, 06:06 AM
Yea, all that I've been able to find is that he is a very good athlete who is incredibly raw. He may stick around on the PS, but I really don't see him making a big impact anytime even remotely soon even as a returner. This seems like a case ofthe Eaghles knowing they got the good end of a previoust deal (Arrington-Mays) and since they have no need for Scott, returned the favor a bit.

Go_Eagles77
08-31-2010, 08:25 AM
I don't really think Arrington proved anything so far. I honestly think they're going to just keep Buckley around as the 3rd RB for his ST ability. The 3rd RB would rarely see the field on offense anyway with McCoy/Bell/Weaver here to carry the ball.

Yea but if he doesn't make the team, the Eagles get that 6th round pick, whih if you ask me is still a win in that trade. I liked Mays a lot, but he didn't have any value with the team, so getting a 6th (or a 3rd RB) in return for someone who was going to be cut most likley anyway is a win.

Alright, it is cut day and so far the big names to be cut are Cornelius Ingram, Macho Harris, and Quintin Demps. We're at 55 men on the roster right now, I expect Hank Baskett and Darryl Tapp to be the next two to go.

On a side note, I'm happy Austin Howard made the team.

Bingo. He's probably one of the fastest LBs in the entire league and was one of our better special teams players last year. Pretty good nickle LB as well. Like I said in the trade thread though, he's a much better fit for a 4-3.

Special teams stud, extremely fluid athlete that excels in coverage, basically a good player that's just undersized. The numbers made him the odd man out because of the addition of Ernie Sims and the depth at WLB.

So I wasn't around on here for all the **** that went down on cut weekend, but was following it closely, just never got on here because my weekend was literally filled with parties, Friday afternoon thru last night. I really like getting rid of Andrews and replacing him with Wells, even if it is as depth for now. I was surprised to see both Demps and Harris cut, I figured one would be gone at the most, most likely Demps, I am a little concerned what the team plans to do with the Safety situation though. I like that the team kept 7 LBs, usually I don't like that, but with our LB corp, it is a great move. I have a strong feeling Ingram was cut because of injuries, not play. There had been word that one of his knees had major fluid buildup. I'm not quite sure what the plays with Antwaan Barnes are, but we'll see.

I'm also a little concerned about keeping only 2 TEs and 3 Safeties. If one of our starters goes down at either position, we are in a real tough spot. I like Harbor a lot, and he would be a decent fill in if Celek were to get injured, but where do we go behind him. Luckily our only saving grace if that were to happen is we have some players who can take on a similar type of role in Avant, Cooper, and Weaver. They play different positions, but they have roles that can help take the place of production lost if Celek were to go down. And if either of our starting safeties go down, that will be a bad situation, the only player on the roster that we could put at either spot if 3 Safeties would be need would be Jorrick Calvin, and that isn't even a good situation, even remotely. Luckily our current practice squad TE and Safety, Garrett Mills and Chip Vaughn, are guys I like and would at least be less sucky options to replace someone if they went down. Particularly Mills, he is good enough to be on someone's roster somewhere.

Overall I am happy with the roster as it is, went as I expected, minus the TE and S situations, as well as keeping 6 CBs (I thought we'd stick with 5 and keep Demps or Harris as a FS). I just hope we are able to keep Jeff Owens on our Practice Squad, he proved me wrong in his time here, played strong and was another one of our D-Linemen that had a good camp and preseason.

Hey guys, I figured since I'm an new and an Eagles fan I might as well introduce myself before I start randomly spouting off about the Eagles. I guess I'll just start off by saying that I am a Kolb supporter (not necessarily a believer, I just want Kolb to do well) and I am an Andy Reid skeptic, I love what he has done for the franchise but his in game coaching leaves me baffled at times. I think that covers my bases in terms of my basic beliefs about the Eagles.

I have a weird feeling about the Green Bay game, my brain is telling me that the Eagles are probably going to lose against Aaron Rodgers but my gut is saying the Eagles are going to perform very well. The Eagles have the advantage in the trenches, they've got the much better special teams group (the Packers are terrible in that aspect) and the Eagles have the weapons to threaten a secondary that was thrashed a couple times last season.

Werowance
09-10-2010, 03:05 AM
Also did you guys know that the Eagles are 13-3 when they field a starting line-up that contains Todd Herremans, Jamaal Jackson and Nick Cole. Guess what, thats the starting line-up on Sunday.

And I am fully expecting DeSean Jackson to blow up this season, the third season is the year when receivers usually break out or stabilize, DeSean is going to stabilize himself this year, a lot less disappearing acts for DeSean this season IMO. Kevin Kolb LOVES to target DeSean Jackson, in the only full half that Kolb played with DeSean, Kolb targeted DeSean 8 times and DeSean came up with 4 catches and 74 yards. If I had to make a bet, I'd say that DeSean goes for about 7 catches, 130+ yards and 1 TD this week, he has looked even better this offseason, people forget that DeSean is still 23, the guy is still growing as an NFL player.

The food that comes to mind for me is dogfood.
We have not won in Philly since any of us were born!
1962. My team has lost there with better teams, with worse teams.

Some of that was Favre's fault. Hey does Minny visit you guys this year?
Treat Favre like you always have, if they do play you there.

DeSean Jackson and Maclin should have big days tomorrow. Woodson can't cover everyone. Someone will be open all the time as we showed against Arizona, Minny, and Pittsburgh last year.

We added no upgrades at CB.
And we added no upgrades at OLB to pair with Matthews.
Kolb couldn't have asked for a better opening-game opportunity than this one.
We made Warner, Favre, Big Ben look like God last year, and we even gave Tampa Bay, and Josh Freeman, his/their first win last year in week 9.

And our special teams coverage units are more like special ed... D Jack should take one back to the house.

This game should be a pick em, not Packers by 5 points.
Luck, and bad ref calls, might be the decider in this game.

Good luck Boys, and may each team come out healthy!

I will be shocked if the Packers do blow us out tomorrow.

I mean you're basically just listening to the national media just blow the Packers and bash Kolb because of the McNabb trade. If you actually look at the match-ups these teams are very even and the Eagles very well could be the better overall team.

The Eagles are better than the Packers at the skill positions right now IMO:
RB: Eagles
-The Packers have Grant and that is it, the Eagles have McCoy, Bell and Weaver.
WR: Eagles
-I'll take DeSean over Greg Jennings every day of the week, Driver is more polished and efficient than Maclin but Maclin is younger, faster, stronger and more of a playmaker and Avant is one of the best inside receivers in the NFL. And quite frankly I'd put Riley Cooper and Hank Baskett out there over Jordy Nelson and Brett Swain every single Sunday because they're just as good as receivers but they're better blockers and they're better special teams players.
TE: Packers
-Heading into the season, Brent Celek is better than Finley but I don't suspect it will stay that way for long. Plus, the Packers have much better depth, Harbor looks like he is going to be a very very good player eventually, but right now the edge as the best #2 clearly goes to Donald Lee.

And the Eagles have the advantage in the trenches on defense, the Eagles are one of the best run defenses and the Packers have an awful run blocking line and the Packers line was like a sieve last season, giving up 51 sacks and nearly 100 QB hits.

Plus, the Eagles have a very very clear advantage on special teams.

And if Kolb is ever going to go off, this is his chance, the Packers secondary is as weak as it is going to get with Harris, Bigby and Underwood all out tomorrow, infact they'll be starting Sam Shields a WR turned CB and UDFA and third round rookie Morgan Burnett who looks like a rookie safety (unlike Allen). The Eagles are catching the Packers secondary at their weakest point, remember that this Packers secondary made Warner, Big Ben and Brett Favre look like gods on the football field and Kolb is working with more weapons than Big Ben was, Warner was and slightly less than Favre was.

The Eagles have three big advantages:
The trenches on defense, special teams and the Packers hobbled secondary that really started to falter down the stretch.

brat316
09-12-2010, 07:04 AM
I think the WR is a push. Jordy Nelson and James Jones, are much better than a combination of Avant and Copper or Baskett.

You seemed to avoid both teams Lbs, and the Eagles DBs.

Kolb will put up numbers, but the final score won't reflect it. Think of Rogers his first year massive yards but finished 6-10.
