Countdown to Bradford

Posted: August 22nd, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 782 Comments »

Are you ready to see Sam Bradford finally play? I know that I’m excited.

When is the last time there was this much buzz about an Eagles QB? You might have to go all the way back to Donovan McNabb in 1999. There wasn’t much buzz on Kevin Kolb. Mike Vick was more of a mystery since he was coming to the Eagles from prison.

The initial mystery with Bradford was why the heck Chip Kelly traded for him. That narrative changed during the OTAs and minicamp as we started to hear good things about Bradford. Then came Training Camp, where Bradford really stood out. He threw the ball well. He was accurate. Kelly looked a lot smarter once people actually saw Bradford play in the Eagles offense.

The question with Bradford now is about his health and durability. Is he ready to be on the field against a live defense? Can he take a hit? How will he move around?

It finally looks like we’ll get answers to those questions tonight.

I do wonder if the hype might be a bit much. If Bradford doesn’t throw a TD tonight, that doesn’t mean he’s been overrated and it’s time to panic. Bradford re-tore his ACLΒ last August. He might be a bit rusty in his first game action in a long time.

I’ll be focusing on a few things. I want to see how he moves and how he responds to pressure. Players coming off a major injury can be skittish at times. Bradford needs to show he can deal with the rush and stay focused on his receivers. I’m excited to see how he throws the ball. Bradford can be very accurate and has a good arm. Let’s see that.

OTHERS OF NOTE

* John Moffitt will likely play a lot of RG tonight. He was very rusty last week, but did get better as the game went along. He needs to take a big step forward this week if he’s going to challenge Andrew Gardner for the starting RG spot.

* Josh Huff didn’t have any passes come his way in the opener. Let’s hope the coaches call his number tonight so we can see how much Huff has progressed since last year.

* I thought Matt Tobin and David Molk were the only backup offensive linemen who played well last week. The Eagles need some other players to emerge and push for roster spots. Could be a veteran like Dennis Kelly, a second year guy like Kevin Graf or a rookie like Brett Boyko.

* Raheem Mostert was good last week. He just needs to do more of the same. He wasn’t able to bring back a kickoff last week and I hope that changes.

* Someone please throw a good pass to G.J. Kinne.

* Walter Thurmond didn’t get much of a chance to show what he can do last week. The starters will play more tonight. I hope we get to see him make a tackle or two. Would love to see him make a play in coverage.

* It will be fun to see Vinny Curry play some OLB.

* Please let Bryan Braman play with the 2’s. He was banished to the 4th quarter last week and dominated. We know he’s better than scrubs. Let’s see how he does against better competition. Is there some reason he couldn’t be the #3 OLB?

* Someone needs to step up in the battle for the Nickel spot.

* Ed Reynolds had a good game. He still needs to play better to seriously push for a spot. He must make his presence felt on STs. He needs to be an active run defender. Picking off passes that thrown to you is a good thing, but he still needs to be better.

* We get to see new players Dasman McCullum (#49) and Deontae Skinner (#54). Both players are linebackers. We’ll have to wait and see how they are used.

* * * * *

I have to admit, this is kinda funny.

    The only inactives for the game are Ertz and Marcus Smith. I’ve heard the top 3 ILBs might not play but if that was the case, one would think they’d have made them inactive.

  2. 2 Nailed it! said at 5:50 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    People were speculating on that because they were warming up with the strength and conditioning coaches. But I really hope they play.

  3. 3 Greg Richards said at 5:56 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yeah, I’ve seen that. I’d guess they’ll sit out and just be available to help in case of injuries.

  4. 4 mattwill said at 7:45 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    We haven’t missed them thus far.

  5. 5 Dragon_Eagle said at 5:38 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    People must be really hyped for Sam and the Eagles in a friggin’ pre-season game. I put up a Megan Fox pic in the prior thread and got zero response.

  6. 6 Charlie Kelly said at 6:03 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    megan fox? shes like so 7 years ago

  7. 7 Dragon_Eagle said at 6:13 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    and getting divorced. Apparently Tommy’s fault.

  8. 8 Charlie Kelly said at 6:15 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    well she was married to brian austin green, so she clearly doesnt try all that hard

  9. 9 Gary said at 5:46 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    As glad as I am that Cary is gone, I don’t remember his tackling ever bring an issue. I’m guessing that was just a preseason type of effort.

  10. 10 nicolajNN said at 6:04 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Well, lack of effort or shying away from contact was and issue here. One of the things that Tommy has mentioned that bothered him is Cary having a big mouth and getting into fights, but not really backing it up on the field

  11. 11 A_T_G said at 6:19 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    The only time Cary wasn’t a tough guy was during the actuals plays.

  12. 12 Greg Richards said at 6:00 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Per Caplan, we gave an injury settlement to Wolff so he won’t be stashed on IR. Looks like his tenure in Philly is finished.

    frank gore made a fool out of earl. lmfao glad earl is gone.

  14. 14 Charlie Kelly said at 6:06 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Im not worried if bradford throws a TD, id rather just see him move the team, and show chemistry with his WRs. Oh and see a couple strong accurate anticipation throws.

  15. 15 Charlie Kelly said at 6:08 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I just hope bradford doesnt get pulled down by a defender by his sleeves lmfao whats up with how he wears his sleeves doe? am right? wtf?

  16. 16 Dragon_Eagle said at 6:38 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I’m still catching up having shut down Eagles news to avoid a padded room at Arkham. So i just put it together and realized Bradford is wearing #7 and Agholor is wearing #17. The history of that connection bodes well.

  17. 17 OregonDucker said at 6:40 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I DO NOT like Bradford in Sleeves. At least, the Seahawks were smart enough to put their QB in elastic sleeves that cannot be grabbed.

    Guys we are putting Bradford at risk with a takedown that hurts him. This is very, very bad. We should NOT be doing this!!!!!!!!!!!

    STUPID is as STUPID does. Chip, don’t do stupid!

  18. 18 Lewwyn said at 6:42 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I’m so excited.

    and you just can’t hide it.

  20. 20 Lewwyn said at 6:43 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I’ve been telling people all day. Don’t bother me at 7.

  21. 21 ACViking said at 6:43 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    T-Law:

    I’ll be surprised if Kelly doesn’t have Bradford at least looking deep on the first play. At a minimum, that deep crossing route to JMatthews where he runs through 3 zones out of the slot.

    Think back to Sanchez’s first regular season play last year: The deep post to Maclin against Houston. (Can’t remember what his first play was in pre-season 2014.)

    And last week, the offense opened with Sanchez throwing the deep seam route to Burton.

    So, despite his ground-chip preference, I think Kelly’s a showman at heart . . . . And he has a weapon to show-off in Bradford.

  22. 22 Dragon_Eagle said at 6:48 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    You may be right, but that call will have a lot to do with how Chip feels the OL did in practice the last 3 days.

  23. 23 Greg Richards said at 6:48 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    He should channel Andy and line up Bradford under center, hand off to Murray, flea-flicker hits Agholor deep.

  24. 24 OregonDucker said at 6:53 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Chip likes to break the will of an opponent AC. Matthews could be the one to do it, since no one could cover him in practice.

  25. 25 anon said at 6:54 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Matthews / Mathews 1-2 punch

  130. 130 OregonDucker said at 7:24 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I’m so proud of this QB and Team.

  131. 131 Michael Winter Cho said at 7:25 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Good way to start it off!

  132. 132 OregonDucker said at 7:25 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Guts and determination to WIN. Gotta love it!

  133. 133 Ark87 said at 7:24 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    very nice, Suggs had 4 flags on that drive lol

  134. 134 JoeBlow said at 7:24 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Ok i’ve seen enough of Sam for one night

  135. 135 GEAGLE said at 7:24 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    How many penalties did Suggs have on that drive? 3?

  136. 136 GEAGLE said at 7:27 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Hope BG takes a cheap shot at Flacco… Teach Suggs a lesson!

  137. 137 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    No. I hope Peters takes a full-weight-behind-it-right-hook swing at Suggs. I’ll pay the fine.

  138. 138 A_T_G said at 7:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Nah, we are better than that.

    Just hit Suggs standing on the sideline.

  139. 139 GEAGLE said at 7:29 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Sometimes your pitcher needs to peg someone..

  140. 140 Tdoteaglefan said at 7:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Game starting off well..i was worried that we would get ravens commentators and no mayock, but glad i wae wrong. Wanted to see bradford make some throws, wanted to see the secondary make a int and ive been blessed with all my wishes so far.

    Now hopefully i can see couplin flash!

  141. 141 GEAGLE said at 7:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Coops gone…

  142. 142 McNabbulousness said at 7:29 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    you could say he’s…re-cooper-ating…

  143. 143 A_T_G said at 7:29 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Flew the coop.

  144. 144 McNabbulousness said at 7:30 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    one flew over the cooper nest?

  145. 145 A_T_G said at 7:30 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    All riled up.

  146. 146 Ark87 said at 7:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Bradford is finding his groove, and the run game looks very good

  147. 147 Lewwyn said at 7:29 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Sam’s throws look effortless.

  148. 148 Iskar36 said at 7:29 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I understand if they decide to take Bradford out, but honestly, I would love to see him get one more drive. You can see the talent is there, but he is still rusty. He isn’t going to play in the fourth preseason game, and likely to play no more than a half in the third, so I wouldn’t mind just a bit more time for him to knock off that rust before it actually matters.

  149. 149 GEAGLE said at 7:30 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Doubt Chip takes him out. Chip Doesmt play scared

  150. 150 Iskar36 said at 7:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Except for you know… not playing him last week.

    But generally I agree. Seems like Chip wouldn’t play the “let’s play not to get injured” mindset.

  151. 151 Iskar36 said at 7:33 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Welp… guess not.

  152. 152 GEAGLE said at 7:34 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Jinxed the shit out of that didn’t i? DAMN!

  153. 153 Iskar36 said at 7:35 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I don’t fault them for pulling Bradford, but I think Bradford would have benefited slightly with at least some additional work.

  154. 154 Daz said at 7:29 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Can anyone help with this, please? Watching on NFL international gamepass and I’m stuck with the Ravens commentary! It’s painful, even for a preseason game! The eagles radio feed is way out of sync. Any ideas? Thanks

  155. 155 Lewwyn said at 7:30 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I’m getting it even on local NBC…

  156. 156 Daz said at 7:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Well that sucks. cheers for the response though…

  157. 157 Insomniac said at 7:32 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I posted a link where you can watch it online down below. Most of the streams there are Eagles commentary.

  158. 158 Daz said at 7:38 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Cheers mate – onto it now πŸ™‚

  159. 159 RogerPodacter said at 7:30 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

  160. 160 anon said at 7:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    2 picks by flacco, sammy b td drive despite getting clobbered

  161. 161 RogerPodacter said at 7:32 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    bradford got clobbered? does that also imply that the OL has been struggling?

  162. 162 anon said at 7:33 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    no dirty play first time, second time later hit. he survived, though was a little banged up. suggs went low.

  163. 163 Lewwyn said at 7:34 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    They were definitely aiming for his legs.

  164. 164 GEAGLE said at 7:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Suggs took a cheap shot at his legs just hitting bradford pretending he was a risk to run on a ZR when he handed it off and had no intention of running..
    ..
    Then Suggs blasted him hard on his chest after SAM threw it
    .
    Suggs literally was flagged 4 times on 1st drive

  165. 165 RogerPodacter said at 7:37 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    so they were all flagged? well thats good, i guess…. hopefully RG brings down the Fine Hammer on him.

  166. 166 GEAGLE said at 7:41 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    The one to his legs was a penalty, but Suggs got flagged 4 times total
    .
    They tried to throw 40 yard pass to the ENDZONE Nolan turned around, saw then ball tipped it and Thurmomd caught it and ran it back like 40 yards.. And you prob saw the 2nd INT, That Byron Max came up with..

  167. 167 RogerPodacter said at 7:42 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    yep, saw that one. thanks for the recap!!

  168. 168 Michael Winter Cho said at 7:37 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    It may be that Bradford’s going to have a target on his back all season.

  169. 169 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Superbowl!!!!

  170. 170 Ark87 said at 7:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Flacco is faster than Ced it turns out lol

  171. 171 McNabbulousness said at 7:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    not faster than maxwell though!

  172. 172 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    That was a gift.

  173. 173 Insomniac said at 7:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Flacco just gifted that to Maxwell lol.

  174. 174 Lewwyn said at 7:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Secondary is alive!

  175. 175 shah8 said at 7:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Now now, don’t copy Jeremy Lane, Maxwell! Good enough that you got that interception!

  176. 176 RogerPodacter said at 7:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    looks like at least one of those ravens are hurt after the end of that INT

  177. 177 JoeBlow said at 7:32 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    yea collided with his o-lineman

  178. 178 GEAGLE said at 7:32 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    If you saw how Suggs was hitting Bradford you would have types a smiley face at the end of ypur commemt

  179. 179 OregonDucker said at 7:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Kill ’em, then skin ’em, then leave ’em for dead!

  180. 180 GEAGLE said at 7:32 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    So Byron Maxwell and Thurmond already have INTs as Eagles… Secondary looks different :)… Only DB not to make a big play yet is Jenkins,,. He’s next,

  181. 181 anon said at 7:33 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    sammy is done

  182. 182 OregonDucker said at 7:33 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I’m happy..

  183. 183 Lewwyn said at 7:34 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Mixed feelings.

  184. 184 shah8 said at 7:34 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Would have liked one more drive. He looks like he needs more time to calm down and get his timing right.

  185. 185 OregonDucker said at 7:35 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    That will come next week. Usually 2 QTRs for starting QB.

  186. 186 Iskar36 said at 7:41 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yea, but usually they also get a full quarter in the second game. Chip is clearly playing things very cautiously with Bradford, and while I understand it, I think Bradford could have benefited from working out the rust a bit more.

  187. 187 xmbk said at 7:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    He can do that next game. Feet are wet, Ravens taking questionable shots.

  188. 188 anon said at 7:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    agree i thought it was questionable he’d play in this game at all. be interested to see sanchez next drive.

  189. 189 JoeBlow said at 7:34 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    yea fine with me

  190. 190 GEAGLE said at 7:33 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Bradfords out? Come on Chip!!!

  191. 191 McNabbulousness said at 7:35 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    noooo, good call chip!

  192. 192 GEAGLE said at 7:38 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    After he ate those two hits, I would think the jitters would be gone, would have liked to give him 1 more drive… Oh well…MURRAY!!! THURMOND! MAXWELL! Ryan MATHEWS! All our new players are making plays

  193. 193 Crus57 said at 7:34 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Cooper getting his thumb x-rayed apparently

    nice blocking from huff

  196. 196 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:35 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Man, I hope this RB rotation is what we will get in the real games. Murray, Mathews, and Sproles are all getting their touches. Love it.

  197. 197 Lewwyn said at 7:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    So good.

  198. 198 A_T_G said at 7:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yep. That will just demoralize the front 7 of opposing Ds

  199. 199 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:37 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Exactly. Fresh legs, different styles, keeps the D off balance.

  200. 200 A_T_G said at 7:35 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Based on reading the DE, I think Sanchez should have kept all three of those.

  201. 201 anon said at 7:35 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    agree

  202. 202 Michael Winter Cho said at 7:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    If he were a smart QB… okay, never mind.

  203. 203 RogerPodacter said at 7:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    probably right, i’m guessing it wasn’t really a ‘read’… don’t want to risk qb injury

  204. 204 A_T_G said at 7:37 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yeah, probably.

  205. 205 Insomniac said at 7:35 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    This is frigging great. We have two great running backs and we’re using them.

  206. 206 anon said at 7:35 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    sanchez should be starting! really selling that RO, he needs to keep it at some point.

  207. 207 McNabbulousness said at 7:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    careful what you wish for, could be a very real possibility with sam’s injury history

  208. 208 RogerPodacter said at 7:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    “look at the blocks from the C and the RG!!!!”
    * RB runs between LG & LT…

  209. 209 OregonDucker said at 7:37 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Good observation. Dominate performance by those two.

  210. 210 RogerPodacter said at 7:41 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    it was a good block, but i was more mocking the commentary as he seemed to think they threw key blocks, but that was the other side of the line!

  211. 211 Ark87 said at 7:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    mmmm power

  212. 212 BC1968 said at 7:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Guess that Cowboys’ line wasn’t the only reason Murray was successful last year.

  213. 213 OregonDucker said at 7:37 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yeah, but he left meat on the bone…..

  214. 214 anon said at 7:37 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    yeah he should have run out the back of the endzone!

  215. 215 Insomniac said at 7:37 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    like forest gump did.

  216. 216 BC1968 said at 7:38 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Right through Broad and followed however you get to the Rocky steps from there.

  217. 217 BC1968 said at 7:37 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Oh poor Emmitt

  218. 218 A_T_G said at 7:38 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    But this year, Mathews is getting all that extra meat.

  219. 219 Insomniac said at 7:38 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Cooper is back. That may or may not be good news.

  220. 220 BC1968 said at 7:39 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    This team has so many weapons, Cooper may be afterthought after it’s all said and done.

  221. 221 RogerPodacter said at 7:38 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Less sacks, more cans and jug comments.

  228. 228 Crus57 said at 7:42 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    ah, he’s their 3rd string guy.

  230. 230 Ark87 said at 7:42 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Bummer for Wesley, hate to see it in the preseason, and the rumors of Coopers demise might have been exaggerated.

    Bradford knocking off the rust I guess, I saw only 1 good throw, couple uglier ones. I think it was smart to take him out though with the Ravens taking cheap shots.

  255. 255 Ark87 said at 7:50 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Flacco reacted to that rush very quickly, started scrambling before it all went to hell. Dunno to call that skittish or early recognition.

    Shady and Westbrook were awesome, but a bruising run game just fits this

  269. 269 SeanofDead said at 7:55 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    That was Agolicious

  270. 270 RogerPodacter said at 7:55 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    love that little juke there from agholor.

  271. 271 McNabbulousness said at 7:55 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    holy shit that looked good

  272. 272 McNabbulousness said at 7:56 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    spoke too soon

  273. 273 RogerPodacter said at 7:56 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    …..aaaaaaaaaand its coming back. no TD : (

  274. 274 RogerPodacter said at 7:56 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    very good call. vandervelde held the crap out of him.

  275. 275 Insomniac said at 7:56 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Agholor is getting open with great routes.

  276. 276 JoeBlow said at 7:57 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Sanchez keeper i say

  277. 277 GEAGLE said at 7:57 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    The Baltimore and philly media was right, the Ravens can’t match up with our skill players.. And we weren’t even using our tempo against them in practice.

    If Sanchez would keep it once and run with it, our run game would really slaughter this team

  278. 278 Jarock said at 7:57 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    61 with the bear hug

  279. 279 A_T_G said at 8:00 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Advantage Molk.

  280. 280 GEAGLE said at 8:02 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Ugh

  281. 281 McNabbulousness said at 7:58 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    another sanchez stinker

  282. 282 RogerPodacter said at 7:58 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    not a great throw from Sanchez, but i think that any WR other than Maehl makes that catch. ok, maybe not coop.

  283. 283 Iskar36 said at 7:58 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Seriously, Sanchez is just bad.

  284. 284 JoeBlow said at 7:59 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    here comes schaub…..more picks?

  285. 285 GEAGLE said at 8:00 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I really would have liked to see him,go to Barner on that route earlier that he drew a penalty on…
    ..
    Agholor is going to be awesome

  286. 286 Crus57 said at 8:01 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    That was our 2nd team + JMatt who just drove down to the 3 on the Ravens, and I think they still had their starters in on D

  287. 287 GEAGLE said at 8:01 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Who just made that tackle for us?

  288. 288 RogerPodacter said at 8:02 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    i don’t know. i thought i saw #80….

  289. 289 RogerPodacter said at 8:02 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    maybe it was 90 – MS2 or 30 – Reynolds?

  290. 290 Crus57 said at 8:02 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Reynolds, MS2 is out for the preseason with his hamstring injury

  291. 291 RogerPodacter said at 8:03 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    riiiiiiiight. forgot about that

  292. 292 GEAGLE said at 8:01 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Was that reynldsL

  293. 293 GEAGLE said at 8:02 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Is reynolds in the game? If so he made a tackle
    ..
    Yeah that’s him,..

  294. 294 A_T_G said at 8:03 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    So, their starters were shut out.

  295. 295 Lewwyn said at 8:04 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Let’s extend that shutout to the whole team.

  296. 296 GEAGLE said at 8:04 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    papa Bair

  297. 297 xmbk said at 8:04 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    No way Hart takes Bairs spot.

  298. 298 GEAGLE said at 8:05 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    They both make it. Keep 7, only dress 6

  299. 299 xmbk said at 8:10 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Maybe/probably

  300. 300 A_T_G said at 8:04 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    He Bairly missed that.

  301. 301 Ark87 said at 8:05 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Almost pulled the Watt

  302. 302 RogerPodacter said at 8:04 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    if the OL didn’t hold Bair, he would have had the INT too

  303. 303 Crus57 said at 8:05 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Hands to the face too

  304. 304 A_T_G said at 8:08 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    And he smells bad.

  305. 305 livingonapear said at 8:06 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    once a ball’s tipped, isn’t it fair game to hold and stuff

  306. 306 RogerPodacter said at 8:07 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    i think so, not saying the OL *shouldn’t* have done that πŸ˜› just that Bair got jipped out of an INT haha

  307. 307 xmbk said at 8:13 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Legal hold after the tip.

  308. 308 GEAGLE said at 8:06 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I wanna see Baeu, My cousin VINNY, and Hart take this game over, with Reynolds getting another pick…

  309. 309 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:06 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Oh good. Muppet is in.

  310. 310 RogerPodacter said at 8:08 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    i swear the announcer is calling him Moppet

  311. 311 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:08 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Hopefully he’s more Animal than Elmo.

  312. 312 GEAGLE said at 8:08 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    yeah, Barner is stafting to look like he belongs

  313. 313 RogerPodacter said at 8:09 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    oof, i dunno. i don’t think thats a catch.

  314. 314 livingonapear said at 8:09 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    and if we were cowboys fans, we’d spend the next 6 months bitching about it

  315. 315 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:10 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    6 months? Have they stopped bitching already?

  316. 316 xmbk said at 8:12 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Considering they lost the week before…

  317. 317 SeanofDead said at 8:10 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I see Barner’s high top is in mid season form

  318. 318 GEAGLE said at 8:12 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Mini Nerlens

  319. 319 xmbk said at 8:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Was watching that punt in the air, wondering if we’ll miss Boykin here. Question answered.

  320. 320 RogerPodacter said at 8:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    tutu should have been able to down that one. got focused on the returner and lost the ball

  321. 321 GEAGLE said at 8:12 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yeah annoyed me

  322. 322 anon said at 8:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    steve smith was funny

  323. 323 Ark87 said at 8:12 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    how many catches did he get tonight anyway?

  324. 324 GEAGLE said at 8:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    We still miss Boykin on punts… Someone step up and start downing balls.. This front 7 will eat teams alive if Donnie backs them up this year

  325. 325 A_T_G said at 8:14 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I think that would be Mostert’s best route to a spot on the roster.

  326. 326 xmbk said at 8:14 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Think Shepherd would have been good at that. Maybe Rice.

  327. 327 SeanofDead said at 8:16 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Ravens very sloppy

  328. 328 GEAGLE said at 8:16 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Shwabb the scab…. Makes you appreciate the Sanchize

  329. 329 RogerPodacter said at 8:16 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    counts as a sack, though! haha

  330. 330 Ark87 said at 8:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    go back to bed Ravens

  331. 331 xmbk said at 8:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Think the Ravens are frustrated from being beat in practice all week. They are hardnosed.

  332. 332 A_T_G said at 8:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    When will the Ravens score?

    Nevermore.

  333. 333 Insomniac said at 8:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    nice coverage by Watkins.

  334. 334 JoeBlow said at 8:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    is that devin hester?

  335. 335 anon said at 8:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    wow

  336. 336 SeanofDead said at 8:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Well it’s official, Barner is making the team

  337. 337 Insomniac said at 8:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Barner pretty much made the roster with that return

  338. 338 Iskar36 said at 8:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Wow, special teams are looking like they will be fun to watch once again.

  339. 339 GEAGLE said at 8:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Sorry Mostert fans,,, Barner belongs on this team

  340. 340 RogerPodacter said at 8:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    NO WAY

  341. 341 A_T_G said at 8:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I think he has a job.

  342. 342 GEAGLE said at 8:18 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yup

  343. 343 RogerPodacter said at 8:19 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Reynolds with a pretty key block on the return

  344. 344 OregonDucker said at 8:20 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Maehl makes the Key Block and Barner gets the TD. Ducks Rule!!

    gonna do this every time

  347. 347 OregonDucker said at 8:21 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yep, he bad.

  348. 348 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:20 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Barner just earned a nickname from Chip.

  349. 349 A_T_G said at 8:21 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    No you don’t need to “reel it in.” They can crown them now.

  350. 350 Lewwyn said at 8:21 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I was just thinking, “That punt looks a little long…”

  351. 351 JoeBlow said at 8:21 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    curry almost got there

  352. 352 Ark87 said at 8:22 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    no one gets off the ball like Vinny, I swear every snap he is offsides

  353. 353 RogerPodacter said at 8:22 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    good coverage, better throw, better catch

  354. 354 GEAGLE said at 8:22 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    How the fuck does the special teams score every single time we play? I say this every single week, “I NEVER SEEN NOTHING LIKE THIS!”, and they will score next week and I will say it again… Fipp and Chip have created a MONSTER ST unit!

  355. 355 OregonDucker said at 8:23 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    This is a Chip team! Get use to it!

  356. 356 GEAGLE said at 8:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Looks like another Duck has made the roster.. Hello Barner..
    ..
    What’s funny is we could probably trade him for like a 4th round pick if we wanted to, but I’d rather be greedy pigs and keep him

  357. 357 OregonDucker said at 8:23 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Do you believe Bitches????

  358. 358 A_T_G said at 8:23 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I believe you are drunk.

  359. 359 OregonDucker said at 8:24 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I am moderately inebriaated but coherent somewhat.

  360. 360 GEAGLE said at 8:23 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Reynolds has a tackle and a block on Barners TD… ROWE and Biggers also have shown some good coverage..

  361. 361 Insomniac said at 8:24 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Marlon Brown was a guy that I thought we should have taken a shot on 2 years ago. Good possession receiver.

  362. 362 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:25 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Again!!! The CB looked back for the ball. They must have changed the rule in the offseason

  363. 363 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    In all seriousness, if this is an effect of new CB Coach Undlin, pay the man.

  364. 364 A_T_G said at 8:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    When I played little league, there was a girl on the team that was afraid to swing the bat. The coach told her to stand as close to the plate as she could, lean in, and wait. She would walk 90% of the time. The pitchers were afraid to hit a girl.

    Last year, the coaches were searching for an imperfect solution to a bad situation.

  365. 365 A_T_G said at 8:25 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Bad Goode, bad Goode!

  366. 366 RogerPodacter said at 8:26 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    that was a Baade catch.

    i’ll see myself out

  367. 367 Insomniac said at 8:25 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Watkins looking good so far in coverage especially when he’s going up against 6’4 and 6’6 guys in Brown/Waller. His tackling needs some polishing though.

  368. 368 Jarock said at 8:26 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Some?

  369. 369 Insomniac said at 8:26 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    At least he’s getting his hands on guys!!

  370. 370 Jarock said at 8:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Sheldon Brown he’s not.

  371. 371 Lewwyn said at 8:26 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Two minute drill! Fuckin’ Score Points!

  372. 372 GEAGLE said at 8:26 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Attaboy Jaylen… Biggers, ROWE, they all are Balling… It’s not just our starting corners, this entire secondary is better in coverage then last season… Heck, just the fact that they turn their friggin heads makes them better

    Lol we haven’t even seen our playmaking ILB’s yet

  373. 373 Crus57 said at 8:27 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Curry has been getting such a sweet jump on the snap, starting to get some decent pressure too

  374. 374 xmbk said at 8:27 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    On some doubles, too

  375. 375 OregonDucker said at 8:27 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    What score do you want 36, 45, 55?

  376. 376 Crus57 said at 8:27 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    0 – injuries, that is.

  377. 377 OregonDucker said at 8:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yep, that’s the objective.

  378. 378 Jarock said at 8:29 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    62 sounds about right.

  379. 379 RogerPodacter said at 8:29 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Barner might have the job on lock, but Mostert can really move when he gets the ball.

  380. 380 Lewwyn said at 8:30 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yeah but he needs to look back for the ball to get it…

  381. 381 xmbk said at 8:30 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Hope they can sneak him onto the practice squad

  382. 382 SeanofDead said at 8:30 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I thugt they said Cootu.

    So many penalties on the ravens!

  388. 388 Jarock said at 8:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Possibly both. Sorry wrong person. Commenting on phone.

  389. 389 A_T_G said at 8:32 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I think you missed.

    Man, this is domination. I’m dreaming or drunk.

  391. 391 xmbk said at 8:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    No, it’s pretty bad.

  392. 392 GEAGLE said at 8:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Attaboy Gos!!

  393. 393 RogerPodacter said at 8:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    nice play from biggers keeping him in bounds

  394. 394 Ark87 said at 8:32 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    was a sweet combo between him and Maragos

  395. 395 Ark87 said at 8:32 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Nice throws from Sanchez on that drive, that was pin point to Mostert, dude wasn’t even looking to make an adjustment

    Biggers is solid… I’m shocked

  400. 400 anon said at 8:33 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    yeah glad one of those guys finally stuck

  401. 401 Jarock said at 8:34 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yeah. Making last season look like a mirage.

  402. 402 wee2424 said at 8:50 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I’m shocked as well. I thought he was garbage when we signed him. He has not only looked good in coverage but has made some really tough tackles.

  403. 403 RogerPodacter said at 8:33 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    one minute drill!

  404. 404 Insomniac said at 8:34 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Watkins really bouncing back from last game

  405. 405 wee2424 said at 8:48 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    In his defense he was good in coverage last game, it was just the missed tackle that was bad.

  406. 406 Jarock said at 8:50 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Still clutching and grabbing instead of tackling. Agree on the coverage.

  407. 407 Insomniac said at 8:51 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I was told he was beat nadly by a big WR last week.

  408. 408 RogerPodacter said at 8:34 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    sheesh. if that guy had been blocked, i think Barner was taking that one to the house too.

    yea, i realize how that sounds… if one guy had been blocked changes a lot on every play lol

  409. 409 GEAGLE said at 8:35 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I’d like to see,Sanchez get us at least 3 points here

  410. 410 Lewwyn said at 8:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I’d love to hit 30 before the half πŸ˜€

  411. 411 SeanofDead said at 8:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Ya, hopefully Agholor learned a lesson there

  412. 412 RogerPodacter said at 8:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    very much so.

    What is the problem? Obviously Agholor saw the flag, gave the defender the ball, then tackled him, just for fun.

    That looked like a Henery kick.

  426. 426 Lewwyn said at 8:38 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Eh, he actually had distance.

  427. 427 Insomniac said at 8:39 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    It hooked so badly

  428. 428 SeanofDead said at 8:38 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Minus twenty yards of distance

  429. 429 wee2424 said at 8:46 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    ? It had plenty of distance.

  430. 430 Crus57 said at 8:40 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Henery’s kicks started wide and only went wider, Parkey’s tend to go fairly straight, he’s just not got his aim quite right yet.

  431. 431 RogerPodacter said at 8:38 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    FG no good. though i didn’t really expect him to make that one

    Reynolds

  447. 447 wee2424 said at 8:44 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Moffit, and Reynolds to continue success from previous week.

  448. 448 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:45 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Agreed. OL depth is huge.

  449. 449 A_T_G said at 8:46 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Wa? Seriously?

    I have almost given up hope on him.

  450. 450 wee2424 said at 8:56 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I think giving up on Moffit is really premature. He was a solid G for Seattle and Denver. Hasn’t played in 2 years so he is expectantly rusty. The issues he is having look alot like poor technique. That is fixable.

    Having him come around would be HUGE for OL depth.

  451. 451 A_T_G said at 9:00 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Eagles tweet that team dazzles with bradford and sanchez. UMMMMM with sanchez they scored a rushing TD on a short field, got a FG, and a punt return TD. With sanchez, the offense did next to nothing. wake up eagles. Dude sucks. He had 2 chances at a 2 minute drill that half and didnt score on either of them. And has failed to sustain any long drives. Has not thrown down the field at all. Terrible.

  457. 457 Jarock said at 8:51 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Wasn’t all on him as his receivers let him down several times in the 2nd half. Mostert never looked back for a great pass. Tutu drops a sure 1st down. Ugh, my stomach hurts, I’m defending Sanchise πŸ˜›

  458. 458 RogerPodacter said at 8:51 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    here i thought he looked “OK”. had a few dropped passes.
    sure, he made some mistakes, but i think he’s playing like a serviceable backup QB.

  459. 459 HazletonEagle said at 8:55 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    he has a way of looking OK without getting the offense to put up any points. Because he throws only short passes. Even in 3rd and long situations. Dude sucks.

  460. 460 RogerPodacter said at 8:58 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    i would think thats pretty good for a backup QB. i remember a number of his throws going 10+ yards downfield, though. by no means do i think he played a good game. just saying that he looks like a backup

  461. 461 RogerPodacter said at 8:53 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    not very good STs there. only ~18 yards on the return out to the 16.

  462. 462 RogerPodacter said at 8:54 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    awesome stiffarm from Mostert!

  463. 463 SeanofDead said at 8:54 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

  464. 464 RogerPodacter said at 8:55 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    yea, i figured they would want to see Tebow with 3rd string O vs 3rd string D instead of with the 4s.

  465. 465 Jarock said at 8:56 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Why? We talked on the forum about maybe switching them, but nothing from the team indicated they were going to do it.

    barner has been unimpressive as a runner. Great at returns. Solid on catches. Mostert is much better as a runner. About equal as a receiver. Has not had an opportunity on returns. Id love to see him have a chance to even it up.

  477. 477 Jarock said at 8:59 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

  482. 482 A_T_G said at 9:04 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    No way after tonight. I think the hope is he makes it to the PS in a league that doesn’t value RBs, and there is a spot for him next year when Barner replaces Sproles.

  483. 483 wee2424 said at 11:02 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Why would you want Mostert over Barner at this point? He isn’t going to play RB in the regular season. Barner has only housed 2 punts so far, and has also been effective while playing RB.

  484. 484 GEAGLE said at 9:02 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Bailey should make the practice squad…fingers crossed

    tutu with a drop and an offensive PI. Has he stood out on STs? I havent noticed him. I think a lot of people had him penciled on to the roster as a STer. Im not sure he makes it.

  490. 490 Insomniac said at 9:02 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I’m hoping we keep Mosert over him. He has potential and looks like he’s willing to do anything.

  491. 491 HazletonEagle said at 9:03 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    good idea. thats a way to make room for Mostert. Im all for it.

  492. 492 wee2424 said at 10:58 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Wouldn’t make sense. That would mean 5 RB. Not only would he take Tutus spot but that would mean you would go light at WR.

    Why have 5 RB when you have the talent we have at RB? Tutu led the league in ST tackles last year and is a good blocker on PR and KR. He would also be good for the ST hands unit.

    The only spot Mostert would be able to see any action at would be KR and you have other viable options there. Tutu would take Smith’s spot on STs.

    It makes no sense to keep Mostert on the 53. He is going to practice squad. Keeping him for the 53 is not looking at the big picture.

  493. 493 Insomniac said at 11:14 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Whoa slow down here. Preseason is half way done. Barner looked okay as a RB. Mostert looked slightly better than Barner and never had a chance to return anything. He had an overall better game than Barner with the exception of a bad rookie mistake of not knowing he was getting thrown to by Sanchez. Not to mention Mostert can get bigger and fits that Chip’s bigger N-S RB preference. What would you even do with Barner when Sproles will probably do all of the returning anyway? Lets not jump to conclusions yet about roster bubble guys.

    FYI, Tutu has done nothing for us yet. He’s down there with Taylor Hart with disappointments.

  494. 494 wee2424 said at 12:32 AM on August 23rd, 2015:

    No, I think it’s you guys that need to slow down with the Mostert talk.

    You are right in that it has only been 2 pre season games. Therefore you are willing to discount a proven NFL player at ST over someone that has done nothing on ST yet. Your own logic defeats your statement.

    PR is more valuable then KR simply because there is more of it as evidenced by Mosterts 0 opportunities at returning a kick and Barners multiple opportunities at returning punts in which he housed 2. Part of the reason as to why Barner was able to return 2 kicks was due to blocking in which Tutu is good at and was involved in.

    As noted above there are other viable KR options on this team. One of them is Huff who did flash at it last year and by using him would mean you don’t have to hold a spot open for someone that is only going to perform KR duties.

    You speak of Kelly’s N/S running style that he prefers. When and how do you possibly see Mostert playing RB this year? Only after and if one or two of our top RBs go down?

    Roster building isn’t really about your best 53, it’s about getting your best 53 on the actual field.

    Mostert wouldn’t play RB. He would just end up taking the space of specialist so he could maybe return kicks in which again somebody else can do.

    You say Tutu hasn’t shown anything. I don’t think you know how to evaluate ST play 100%. He has indeed done good things on ST. Good blocking and downfield coverage. No he did not down the punt but he was downfield first which is a feat in its own and does grade out as points on the ST point chart. Yes there is a thing. All things which did contribute to our historic ST last year, and in order to keep that up players like him are needed since good ST players have departed or been promoted.

    Just like Brad Smith last year or the numerous other ST players like Braman, they are not here to play O or D, they are here to fill pieces of the puzzle to ST. So you can knock on his drop or offensive PI but that is not why he is here.

    So exactly what do you see Mostert doing that another player cannot do? He can always go on the PS.

    And do you really think Barner isn’t going to return any punts in the regular season after what we have seen?

  495. 495 Insomniac said at 2:09 AM on August 23rd, 2015:

    Proven NFL player at ST? He had 2 good punt returns in his career in preseason. Slow down bud. People like Mostert because he has a high ceiling and looks like he can replace Sproles. Barner just looks like a typical Oregon scatback that really is just suited for ST so far. It’s not like we know Mostert can’t play STs either. That’s why you need another 2 game evaluation before labeling Barner a lock over Mostert.

  496. 496 wee2424 said at 3:04 PM on August 23rd, 2015:

    I said he is a proven commodity at ST due to the fact he is widely considered one of the better ST players in the league and also led the league in ST tackles last year. That is a proven commodity.

    Barner doesn’t just seem suited for ST he is excelling at it. The vision he showed on the return last night was impressive.

    Furthermore I don’t see him as a replacement to Sproles in the sense of him doing the same things as Sproles. I don’t see Mostert having the ability to split out wide or move into the slot.

    If Kelly does view him as someone that will take over the third RB spot then the PS would make sense.

  497. 497 RogerPodacter said at 9:02 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    he was in on a punt earlier that he should have downed inside the 10. instead he was more focused on the returner and didn’t see the ball land 5-10 yards behind the returner until too late. so, yea. from what little i’ve seen, he hasn’t impressed me on ST

  498. 498 SeanofDead said at 9:03 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I hope you’re right. Id rather his spot go to Bailey or Tomlinson

    a little

  522. 522 Septhinox said at 9:09 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

  523. 523 A_T_G said at 9:10 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    That is the third Watkins. There is still hope for that one. You obviously blocked Danny from your memory. Sorry to rip off that scab.

    All NFL teams have that problem.

  530. 530 Jarock said at 9:10 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Nice pressure by the d-line preventing a completion. Nice D overall there. Only concern I have this game so far is the run D has been surprisingly porous.

  531. 531 xmbk said at 9:10 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Nah, Ravens can run the ball, and top 3 MLB were out.

  532. 532 Jarock said at 9:12 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    True, but even with our top LB’s out last year, run d remained solid. It was the horrible job in pass coverage by the backup LB’s that really stood out. This game, Raven’s have been getting 4+ a little more than I’m used to seeing.

  533. 533 wee2424 said at 10:19 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    We never had both of our starting ILBs out for a game last year.

    Our run defense will be more then fine.. We haven’t even seen our two playmaking ILBs behind them yet.
    ..
    The last thing we need to worry about is run d

  535. 535 xmbk said at 9:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Ravens count on running much better, thus the scoreboard.

  536. 536 GEAGLE said at 9:10 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Should have bet $500 on the first two games… Our depth is too much for these teams in the second half .. Next year I’m gonna bet heavy on chips backups and I don’t even gamble…

  537. 537 OregonDucker said at 9:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    They are still in gel mode. Look out NFL.

  538. 538 A_T_G said at 9:13 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    There are still two to go…

  539. 539 Jarock said at 9:19 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    A – Lines will probably catch up with the way they’ve been playing.

    B – 3rd game sees more starters than any other. Depth advantage is less of a factor.

    C – It’s your money, GEAGLE. Wanna risk it, go for it, but don’t expect me to commiserate if we unexpectedly lay an egg.

  540. 540 wee2424 said at 10:22 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    As far as B it’s been our first team that has garnered us leads in both PS games.

  541. 541 Jarock said at 10:26 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    and, surprisingly, Barkley. Sanchez was really mediocre both games.

  542. 542 Ark87 said at 9:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Wonder why Mostert doesn’t get shots at the return game, must not have a nack for it?

  543. 543 GEAGLE said at 9:12 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    KR.. They have to score for him to get a shot lol

  544. 544 HazletonEagle said at 9:12 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    he was the KR last week and idiot kicker never gave him a shot.
    I wish he was still in at KR this week but Barner took it to open the 2nd half.

  545. 545 McNabbulousness said at 9:12 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    with kenyon making hay, why would you take him out.

  546. 546 Ark87 said at 9:13 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    because it’s the preseason, evaluation is worth more than points?

  547. 547 McNabbulousness said at 9:13 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    you make a good point

  548. 548 OregonDucker said at 9:13 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Damn it, put in Tebow. We have seen enough of Barkley.

  549. 549 Jarock said at 9:14 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    You may be the only poster on this board who feels that way πŸ˜›

  550. 550 GEAGLE said at 9:15 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Lol I have seen enough of tebow

  551. 551 OregonDucker said at 9:15 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Heehee, just jerking your chain. But I would like to see Timmy with the 2nd team.

  552. 552 Insomniac said at 9:15 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Go home OD, you’re drunk

  553. 553 OregonDucker said at 9:16 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    But we’re still winning….

  554. 554 Jarock said at 9:14 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Really nice attempt by Pratt. Too bad he dropped it.

  555. 555 GEAGLE said at 9:14 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Every summer we are going to see a “Moster” or a “Josey” looking good in chips offense

  556. 556 McNabbulousness said at 9:16 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    murray, mathews, sproles, kenyon, where does mostert fit in. he’s looking awfully good out there

  557. 557 Ryan Rambo said at 9:19 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    U think Dallas will try and poach him if we PS him? I can’t see us keeping Kenjon AND Mostert. #backfieldproblems

    idk man, hopefully not. i mean kelly loves these swiss army knife players.

  561. 561 GEAGLE said at 9:20 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Practice Squad unless he gets poached

  562. 562 wee2424 said at 10:10 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Practice squad.

  563. 563 Insomniac said at 9:14 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    There’s still 2 more weeks left. Barner vs Mosert isn’t settled yet if Mosert shows something on returns.

  564. 564 GEAGLE said at 9:19 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    It’s not about what Mostert isn’t doing… The only chance I think he has of making the 53 is if we decides to accept a trade offer for Barner…I can’t see chip cuts Barner to keep Mostert, especially when if he keeps Barner there is a decent chance we can get Mostert on the Practice squad and keep both…pathetic Cowboys would pick up Barner with the quickness
    ..:
    How much more impressive is Mostert then Josey?

  565. 565 Insomniac said at 9:25 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    The one thing Mostert really has on Josey and Barner is size. 5’11 and only 190 pounds but has a frame to add 15 pounds.

  566. 566 GEAGLE said at 9:26 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Mostert is a fast little tank..

  567. 567 wee2424 said at 10:09 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Mostert is more impressive in the fact that he is more physical and is surprisingly good in between the tackles. Josey was more of a run around you guy that wouldn’t be nearly as effective going up against the ones and twos.

  568. 568 wee2424 said at 9:35 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I think Barner takes the spot due to ST. Mosert is physically better but Barner has very good vision on PR.

    The 4th RB spot isn’t going to be won by who looks better at RB due to the extreme depth and talent at the position but who is better on ST. Barner is clearly ahead on that front.

    When I responded I didn’t notice you mention Mosert and returns.

  569. 569 Insomniac said at 9:37 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    We really haven’t seen Mostert return anything yet.

  570. 570 wee2424 said at 9:39 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    And that is why I think Barner takes it. With how kickoffs are now a PR is arguably more important and takes place more often.

  571. 571 Lewwyn said at 9:15 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    They are just marching on them.

  572. 572 HazletonEagle said at 9:16 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    scamchez is out. offense moves.

  573. 573 anon said at 9:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    ehhhhh

  574. 574 HazletonEagle said at 9:18 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    still no TD though.
    But I like that Barley will throw beyond 10 yards from time to time. He just makes better reads. Sanchez never sees those guys even when theyre wide open.

  575. 575 wee2424 said at 9:23 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Sanchez doesn’t see the open man alot, but I am not ready to say Barkley is better in his progressions then him untill I see Barkley with the second team.

    I will say that Barkley has vastly improved.

  576. 576 McNabbulousness said at 9:18 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    easy to move on someone’s third team

  577. 577 HazletonEagle said at 9:19 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    with his 3rd team- all relative.

  578. 578 McNabbulousness said at 9:21 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    exactly

  579. 579 wee2424 said at 9:27 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Ehhh, some teams third string is heads over heals better then other teams. Eagles have much better depth then most teams at alot of positions and it is showing. Particularly the farther down the depth chart we go.

  580. 580 A_T_G said at 9:19 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    When the scrub we are complaining about went 14/20, it is a good night.

  581. 581 Jarock said at 9:15 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Where’s the FLAG!!!

  582. 582 Jarock said at 9:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Barkley looks like he can play QB if he gets protection. Really scares me though when he gets pressured. Arm’s always gonna be an issue.

  583. 583 OregonDucker said at 9:19 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yep, I thought Barks could be a starter when we got him. Now I am just disillusioned.

  584. 584 ICDogg said at 9:18 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Parkey is butter. As opposed to Parkay.

  585. 585 OregonDucker said at 9:19 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Parkay – “tastes like butter”.

  586. 586 Insomniac said at 9:20 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    You know what’s great so far? I haven’t seen that awful NFL shop family commercial yet.

  587. 587 HazletonEagle said at 9:21 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    If they do play it, i blame sanchez.

  588. 588 GEAGLE said at 9:23 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    We got our DL “snowflake” package out there

  589. 589 JoeBlow said at 9:23 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    damn hicks got to make that tackle

  590. 590 HazletonEagle said at 9:24 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    he casey mathews’d it

  591. 591 McNabbulousness said at 9:24 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    that’s a very accurate statement

  592. 592 Jarock said at 9:24 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Why did we take Hicks in the third?????

  593. 593 A_T_G said at 9:24 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    We wanted Agholor in the first.

  594. 594 Jarock said at 9:26 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Sorry to whine, but Hicks was the only wtf pick we made this year. Between watching him suck and watching our lack of OL depth, can’t help thinking there would have been better people to take.

  595. 595 McNabbulousness said at 9:27 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    with kelly, every year you’re going to have a “marcus smith” pick

  596. 596 GEAGLE said at 9:24 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Couplin just missed tackle

  597. 597 anon said at 9:25 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    defense needs to lock it down here

  598. 598 GEAGLE said at 9:26 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Rowe tried to strip it while making the tackle.. Love the attempt

  599. 599 anon said at 9:26 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    rowe gets crushed in the slot

  600. 600 wee2424 said at 10:03 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yeah, I do not like him in the slot. His weakness will be against smaller quicker WR and that is exactly what he will be facing on a continual basis. I love what Kelly has done with this team but I think trading Boykin may have been a mistake.

    Good chance Biggers is our slot CB. Fortunately he has looked ALOT better then I thought he Would.

  601. 601 Jarock said at 9:27 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Another brilliant tackle by Jaylen Watkins . . . oh wait.

  602. 602 McNabbulousness said at 9:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    just be glad we don’t have fletcher/williams out there

  603. 603 OregonDucker said at 9:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Cut him! I’m not happy with Jaylen’s play or lack thereof.

  604. 604 Jarock said at 9:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    He’s been decent, not great, in coverage. Matador routine is getting old.

  605. 605 OregonDucker said at 9:29 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Last week Jaylen was a liability. Things have not changed.

  606. 606 Insomniac said at 9:30 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Our starting free safety was one of the worst tacklers in the league before he got here. I wouldn’t give up on Jaylen just yet.

  607. 607 Jarock said at 9:32 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Nate was actually a decent tackler under Kelly. Watkins has been here two seasons and is making Asante Samuel look like Steve Atwater.

  608. 608 Insomniac said at 9:33 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Nope I’m talking about Jenkins. Nate would have been the “strong safety”.

  609. 609 HazletonEagle said at 9:27 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    hey what happened to tackling?

  610. 610 GEAGLE said at 9:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Does it really matter if Racini misses a tackle?

  611. 611 HazletonEagle said at 9:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    yes. and the rest of the defense.

  612. 612 OregonDucker said at 9:28 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yes! Cut him!

  613. 613 wee2424 said at 9:51 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yeah it does, after all that’s why they play these pre season games. To evaluate talent and have the young depth guys try to make the team.

  614. 614 Michael Winter Cho said at 9:29 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    The Eagles are winning the preseason.

  615. 615 Jarock said at 9:29 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Do they give Lombardi trophies out for that πŸ™‚

  616. 616 ICDogg said at 9:30 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Only Racini trophies

  617. 617 OregonDucker said at 9:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Lions were 4 -0 preseason then 0-16 regular season. Be careful with expectations.

  618. 618 Fufina said at 9:41 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    True but there is a difference between dominating in the first 2 quarters of preseason games and doing so in the last 2. Eagles have been at their best in the first 2 quarters which is a very good sign against 2 likely playoff bound teams so far.

  619. 619 Michael Winter Cho said at 9:47 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    What has happened so far is a good sign! I’m pleasantly surprised.

  620. 620 GEAGLE said at 9:30 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Let them score so Mostert can get a KR opportunity

  621. 621 Jarock said at 9:30 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    BOOOOO!!! I want a shut out!!

  622. 622 HazletonEagle said at 9:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    they had Barner there to start the half. Pissed me off.

  623. 623 GEAGLE said at 9:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Come on Reynolds!!
    Stop that Td!

  624. 624 HazletonEagle said at 9:31 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    last week was a mirage. hes back to being Reynolds.

  625. 625 GEAGLE said at 9:32 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Actually had a nice tackle earlier and a block on Barners PR TD
    ..
    Better then Couplin

  626. 626 HazletonEagle said at 9:32 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    we have Maragos for STs. We need some backup to show he can actually play on defense

  627. 627 Jarock said at 9:34 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Truth. I don’t wanna see Prosinski or Maragos ever on the field unless it’s for a ST play.

  628. 628 Insomniac said at 9:33 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    He really hasn’t gotten a chance to do much though

  637. 637 A_T_G said at 9:34 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Yup. Glad they didn’t make things weird with the new rules…

  638. 638 Ark87 said at 9:35 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Hah, if they opt to go for 2 they should get stuck with it 12 yards out in the event of a penalty

  639. 639 Jarock said at 9:34 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    33 yards. They had a penalty as well.

  640. 640 Ark87 said at 9:36 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    nah I was just wondering how that penalty would be applied, just damn odd for the line of scrimmage to be going all over the place

  641. 641 OregonDucker said at 9:35 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Tebow has a guy WIDE OPEN in the endzone and chooses to run it in himself. : /

  738. 738 Jarock said at 10:09 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Don’t care that’s a TD, he missed a wide open WR in the back of the endzone. Horrible QB play.

  739. 739 RogerPodacter said at 10:10 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    glad Mayock (?) is ripping into him for this play too. i don’t feel like a crazy person.

  740. 740 Jarock said at 10:10 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    You’re lucky. I’m stuck with the Raven’s broadcast. They’ve pointed it out too.

  741. 741 Ark87 said at 10:10 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    they really go after Tebow when he hands off now

  742. 742 HazletonEagle said at 10:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    why do these guys care if the ball crossed inside the pylon?

  743. 743 A_T_G said at 10:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    That is how you get a touchdown.

  744. 744 HazletonEagle said at 10:12 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    used to not matter…

  745. 745 Iskar36 said at 10:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    If that is not the epitome of the Tebow vs Barkley argument, I don’t know what is. WIIIIIIIIDE open WR and he doesn’t make the throw, but at the same time makes a play.

  746. 746 Jarock said at 10:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I don’t want Mr. Magoo playing QB, even if it’s 3rd string.

  747. 747 Iskar36 said at 10:14 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    I can’t stand Tebow and want no part of him on the Eagles, but it isn’t my choice. If you are a Tebow fan though, while that is a bad play (especially since he didn’t score now that the review is over), it is Tebow doing Tebow things. If you like him, you have to be ok with that kind of play IMO. He is a skilled runner, not a good passer.

  748. 748 Jarock said at 10:17 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Kind of my point, though. I don’t hate Tebow, but I never thought he was a pro-caliber QB either. If he was a rookie and was making these kind of decisions, I’d be ok with it, but not happy. He’s 28 if I remember correctly, he’s never going to improve. Barkley can make plays if he’s protected and makes decent decisions. Will never have a great arm, but for our 3rd string QB, don’t really care. I’d rather have Bryan Bennett who stunk it up late last game. He’s both an athlete and has a live arm. Needs tons of polish, but at least he’s a baby.

  749. 749 ICDogg said at 10:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

  750. 750 HazletonEagle said at 10:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    when did that rule change?

  751. 751 ICDogg said at 10:12 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Didn’t

  752. 752 HazletonEagle said at 10:13 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    BS. The goal line ALWAYS extended indefinitely. All you had to do is get past it. As long as no part of his body touched out of bounds first…TD

  753. 753 sonofdman said at 12:27 AM on August 23rd, 2015:

    You are right. The goal line used to extend indefinitely as long as the ball crossed the extended goal line before the player stepped out of bounds. A few years ago, they changed the rule so the ball had to be inside the pylon.

  754. 754 HazletonEagle said at 8:51 AM on August 23rd, 2015:

    Thanks. I knew it. These people are making me feel crazy. I missed the change.

  755. 755 A_T_G said at 10:12 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Never. That is why they have pylons.

  756. 756 HazletonEagle said at 10:14 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    honestly Ive seen so many TDs called the other way and always heard the explanation of the goal line extending indefinitely.

  757. 757 RogerPodacter said at 10:15 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    are you sure those aren’t cases where the ball hits the pylon? the pylon is an extension of the endzone, so if the ball hits the pylon it is the same as crossing the line.

  758. 758 HazletonEagle said at 10:15 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    pretty sure man.

  759. 759 RogerPodacter said at 10:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    hah! i was thinking the same thing on his TD in the last game – his plan seems to be to just knock the pylon over with his arm

  760. 760 GEAGLE said at 10:11 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Lol doesn’t trust himself to throw such a simple pass?

  761. 761 RogerPodacter said at 10:12 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    i’d like to see a replay of it to see when the guy came open and when Tebow tucked it to start running.

  762. 762 OregonDucker said at 10:12 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Tebow missed a TD throw. Needs work.

  763. 763 Jarock said at 10:13 PM on August 22nd, 2015:

    Needs to work on his broadcasting skills. He’s not a pro QB.
