Eagles vs Colts – PS Opener

Posted: August 16th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 1,027 Comments »

Excited?

The first preseason game can often be a sloppy affair. Still, I’m ready for some Eagles football. I’m ready to see third and fourth stringers battle for their football lives.

We won’t get any definitive answers today, but we’ll start to get a feel for who can play and who can’t. Every year there are at least a few guys who really struggle in the opener and then look much better the next week, but for the most part you see guys for who they are.

I wrote my preview for PE.com.

Simple goals.

#1 goal – stay healthy

#2 goal – good OL play

#3 goal – have some DBs emerge

It isn’t important that the Eagles win. The preseason is about player evaluation. Sure, it is good to win, but that’s not the focus. Summer football is about individuals and units more than whole teams.

We can also hope for a bit of fun. Does Bryan Braman have a sack dance? How will Raheem Mostert celebrate after his long TD? And so on…

    Today is a reminder of why I can’t stomach TEBOW and why he can’t be allowed on our Roster.. Been waiting month after month to get to some Eagle football, we are finally going to play our first game of the year in two hours and the ONLY Eagles coverage on ESPN is about tim friggin TEBOW.. I cant take it
    ..
    Stay healthy please!!! the NFL is a joke, making us play at 1pm in August is absurd…

  2. 2 Media Mike said at 12:10 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Maybe they can send Clayton Geathers on a safety blitz that Matt Tobin fails to pick up that seperates Tebow’s throwing shoulder.

    I’d call that 3 for 3 in my book!

    WAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  4. 4 GEAGLE said at 11:54 AM on August 16th, 2015:

    I hope they make Earl Wolff play every snap of this preseason game.. Don’t let him Sub out,.. Leave him out there to play in this crazy heat for all 4 quarters, run him into the ground rather then put our starters on the field

  5. 5 Media Mike said at 12:08 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    exactly which type of skid mark is Earl Wolff?

  6. 6 GEAGLE said at 12:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    This clown sits out all of OTAs after doctors and trainers cleared him..
    ..
    Then 8 days into training camp he sits out of practice
    ,,
    And now he dares sit out the first preseason game? He should be limping around the field, forcing someone to take him off the field
    ..
    I’m embarressed to call this kid an Eagle… SCREW HIS TALENT, GET HIM OUT HERE NOW!!

  7. 7 Media Mike said at 12:07 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    #4 goal – get rid of Tebow
    #5 goal – get rid of Barner
    #6 gaol – get rid of Cooper

  8. 8 FairOaks said at 12:08 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    My number 4 through 20 goals is stay healthy.

  9. 9 Media Mike said at 12:08 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That is goal 1a!

  10. 10 Amar said at 12:08 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Eagles Insider βœ” @EaglesInsider
    Andrew Gardner will fittingly start at right guard. Brad Jones and Emmanuel Acho will start at ILB. Mark Sanchez starts at QB for #Eagles

  11. 11 anon said at 12:16 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    so they basically aren’t playing anyone in this game, smart, too many injuries already.

  12. 12 GEAGLE said at 12:16 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Hot as hell too

  13. 13 GEAGLE said at 12:14 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Why is Demarco and Bradford on the field in full Pads, warming up (Murray taking hand offs from SAM?) WTF
    ..
    While Earl wolff nurses his boo boo on the sideline like the bitch he is..
    ..
    Why,does he even bother showing up to Novacare? Sat out all OTAs, already sitting out of Camp Practice,and now the sissy is sitting out of a preseason game? Please get this Clown out of Philly..l he shouldn’t be allowed to call himself an Eagle 1 more day..

  14. 14 GEAGLE said at 12:16 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Byron Maxwell gave a high 5 to every single Eagle defender as they took the Field… #LEADER…. As for Earl Wolff #PUSSY

  15. 15 TommyLawlor said at 1:05 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Can we dial down the language and anti-Wolff hate? We all know where you stand on this issue.

  16. 16 Media Mike said at 12:16 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Being away all last week, I missed a lot of the most recent non-Ertz and non-Bradford injury updates.

    What happened with Kendricks? Will Chip mock him for a 4 week “day to day” calf strain again?

  17. 17 jpate said at 12:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Wow might as well cut wolff now

  18. 18 GEAGLE said at 12:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    If he is allowed at novacare tomorrow I will be pissed. Get him out of here ASAP

  19. 19 Corry said at 12:33 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Minor surprise for me is Jones and Acho as the starters at ILB. I figured it would be Goode in there over Acho or Jones.

  20. 20 Steag209 said at 12:38 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Did Huff change numbers on his own or did Tebow want number 11? It’s been bothering me because I swore huff wore 11 last year and after literally just looking at the kick return video I confirmed he was 11. It’s stupid, but didn’t know if anyone knew the reason

  21. 21 ACViking said at 12:48 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Huff switched from #11 to #13 after 2014.

    So #11 was available to Tebow.

  22. 22 ACViking said at 12:45 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I don’t understand why some commenters treat Earl Wolff’s handling of his knee problems as a personal affront — requiring a string of expletives you’d expect from a 12 year-old in the school yard.

    1. The Eagles training staff and team MDs — in Kelly’s regime — completely misdiagnosed Wolff’s knee problem for a good part of two seasons.

    2. Wolff had micro-fracture surgery (mini). The success rate for elite athletes who play contact sports that require explosive moves is not particularly good.

    Wolff is not a “Pussy.”

    He, most likely, has a bad knee that will never heal to the level required for NFL success.

    And he’ll be gone.

  23. 23 anon said at 12:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    like kenny phillips, notice that clowney hasn’t gotten anywhere near a football field

  24. 24 ACViking said at 12:54 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Great point(s).

    And Brandon Graham’s never been the same. He can move straight ahead.

    But, for explosive cuts, no one’s asking him to move laterally on a dime while a WR runs a route.

  25. 25 Tumtum said at 11:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He had a nice break up today btw!

  26. 26 OregonDucker said at 12:55 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    My understanding is that micro-fracture surgery is many times not successful. So, he could have not healed properly.

    Nonetheless, for those of us who have played the game for many years, we are very familiar with the high-potential player who does not have the mental strength to play the game. I felt that Undlin’s comments on Wolff, especially Undlin’s demeanor, conveyed a strong disappointment/distaste for Wolff’s lack of productivity. For me, this was the tell that the coaching staff does not support Wolff.

  27. 27 ACViking said at 12:57 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    OD:

    I remember your comment from the other day regarding Undlin’s comment. Perceptive.

    My only thing is Wolff’s knee is a problem for *him.*

    And Kelly’s shown a propensity to short-temper ball players whom his doctors and trainers have cleared. (Except QBs acquired in trades.)

    Bottom line. I don’t see why some people need to personalize the injury — as though Wolff is intentionally trying to hurt them.
    Weird.

  28. 28 OregonDucker said at 12:59 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Kelly absolutely hates slackers; whether they are stars or journeymen. I too have seen my share of these guys, and I tend to judge them negatively.

  29. 29 Tumtum said at 11:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Missed the quotes. Mind repeating?

    It is obvious the staff isn’t behind Wolfe.

  30. 30 Greg Richards said at 1:05 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    There are injuries where you’re medically unable to play or practice and injuries where you can still practice but the issue is pain tolerance. It seems to me that Wolff won’t tolerate pain and won’t practice unless he think he has 100% explosiveness. I don’t think the coaching staff appreciates that.

  31. 31 Tumtum said at 11:12 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Thanks for articulating that so well AC! Really hate that.

  32. 32 CrackSammich said at 12:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Is this streaming anywhere legally today?

    (I know where to find it otherwise, so need to criminally implicate Tommy’s blog.)

  33. 33 ACViking said at 12:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I contend, if it’s on the internet, it’s legal.

  34. 34 CrackSammich said at 12:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Not quite legal there…

  35. 35 ACViking said at 12:55 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    No. I think you’re right.

    NFL’s power is not quite the same outside the U.S.

  36. 36 CrackSammich said at 12:57 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    The lawyer has spoken.

    I suppose I was just wondering if one of the networks was doing free online streaming for preseason. Looking for the HD, as opposed to this pixelated pirated feed that I’m so used to.

  37. 37 ACViking said at 12:59 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    “pixelated pirated feed”

    excellent alliteration.

    Here’s another goal that I don’t think anyone has mentioned: stay healthy.

  42. 42 OregonDucker said at 12:57 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Healthy is as healthy does. Luck plays a role in player health, but so does good habits. #SportsScience

  43. 43 CrackSammich said at 12:55 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I’d really like to see Earl Wolff and GEAGLE in a fist fight. We’ll see who the #PUSSY is.

  44. 44 myartz04 said at 12:59 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    My money is on GEAGLE because most likely he would bring some kind of illegal substance to throw in Wolff’s eyes a la ‘Bloodsport’, and then would repeatedly beat him with a tire iron.

  45. 45 Greg Richards said at 12:58 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    They’re saying on the radio broadcast that Tebow will be ahead of Barkley in the QB rotation.

  46. 46 ACViking said at 1:00 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    OregonDucker:

    How are you doing?

  47. 47 OregonDucker said at 1:02 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Thanks for asking AC. I’m in an active monitoring phase which is really the best I could hope for. PSA dropped a little which is giving me hope.

  48. 48 ACViking said at 1:04 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    God’s speed. Always thinking about you.

  49. 49 OregonDucker said at 1:04 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Thanks man.

  50. 50 Corry said at 1:01 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Awesome…so the NFLN is actually not showing the preseason game. *sigh*

    EDIT: Yay! I found it!

  51. 51 OregonDucker said at 1:03 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    We’ll keep you posted on the game here.

  52. 52 Corry said at 1:05 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I found it. Comcast didn’t have the listings right. I’m going to miss weeks 2 and 3 due to some unavoidable events, so i really didn’t want to miss this week.

    Thank you though!

  53. 53 Buge Halls said at 1:17 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    If you can’t find it streaming online, you’re just not trying…

  54. 54 Corry said at 1:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I actually didn’t try.

  55. 55 Buge Halls said at 1:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    just kidding

  56. 56 Corry said at 1:06 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Baby steps. Can’t expect them to get rid of Fletcher AND learn to press on short yardage situations all in one year can you?

    Sorry that you didn’t see my high level of sarcasm in that statement..

  73. 73 GEAGLE said at 1:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Tells you what we think about Coop this year having him return punts in a meaningless preseason game when the temperature on the field is 102

  74. 74 OregonDucker said at 1:10 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    This secondary looks to be an improvement!

  75. 75 Greg Richards said at 1:11 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Way too early to say that.

  76. 76 OregonDucker said at 1:12 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    At least there was no X play in the series.

  77. 77 A_T_G said at 1:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Nah, I’ve been saying that since Cary left.

  78. 78 GEAGLE said at 1:14 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yeah Corners covered well… BG had some solid coverage on one play

  80. 80 CrackSammich said at 1:11 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Defense looked good, for being without any of our three (?) starting ILBs. Was that Brandon Graham with a pass break up?

  81. 81 A Roy said at 1:12 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Feels pretty good to have a game on.

  86. 86 wee2424 said at 1:59 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    His accuracy is garbage in this game. That throw to Agholor was horrible. He missed 2 TD.

    With how our WRs are getting open you can see why Kelly loves Bradford. Just be accurate and this O could soar.

  87. 87 Greg Richards said at 1:14 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Sanchez blows.

  88. 88 OregonDucker said at 1:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    First game jitters. I think Chip will give him one more series.

    Irony.

  91. 91 A Roy said at 1:14 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Sanchez showed early why he’s a backup.

  92. 92 Corry said at 1:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I think this is the most I’ve paid attention to the punt coverage unit. Replacing Boykin there is going to be tough.

  93. 93 CrackSammich said at 1:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Maybe I’ve just read too much Chip Wagon, but I knew the play coming based off the formation all three times. Preseason it is…

  94. 94 Crus57 said at 1:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    NFL Gamepass has given me the Colts feed. Their announcers are terribad. “Great coverage on sproles” as the defender trails by 2 yards when we only needed 1 for a first down..

  95. 95 Corry said at 1:17 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Ew….i do feel blessed to have Mayock.

  97. 97 wee2424 said at 1:17 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    BG tested early and looks good.

  98. 98 GEAGLE said at 1:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Had a solid play covering the flat

  99. 99 wee2424 said at 1:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    And shooting in the back to make the tackle on an outside run right after that.

  100. 100 GEAGLE said at 1:17 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    It’s so fun watching run defense,,. We been shutting down run games for almost two seasons now..

    Like the run defense?

  105. 105 BlindChow said at 1:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Like falling for the hard count. Every time. Do the coaches even notice?

    Hopefully Bradford has one. It would be nice if the other team has to worry about that for a change…

  107. 107 anon said at 1:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    they were killing us last year on that peyton in 2013 and Luck in 2014. I don’t think it’s something we work on, especially going against our offense.

  108. 108 RogerPodacter said at 1:26 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    you would think that would be something our offense would deploy constantly. defenses should be expecting us to try to get the play off as quickly as possible. i would imagine a hard count would be very successful in this offense.

  109. 109 HazletonEagle said at 1:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    This DL has been dominant so far. And thats the 2nd time its been Logan. Awesome!

  110. 110 HazletonEagle said at 1:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    we dont even need LBs

  111. 111 GEAGLE said at 1:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Soon national media will realize Logan is one of the best NT in the game…

  112. 112 GEAGLE said at 1:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Why do teams bother trying to run against our DL? We shut you down with 3rd string ILBs in the game and a nickel corner at safety

  113. 113 OregonDucker said at 1:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    3rd and long……

  114. 114 Greg Richards said at 1:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Bennie Logan needs to get more national pub. Take him out. Give Beau Allen the reps.

  115. 115 HazletonEagle said at 1:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    wasn’t bad coverage just better catch and throw

  118. 118 Corry said at 1:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Matt Hasselbeck still plays?

  119. 119 HazletonEagle said at 1:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    no. its a hologram

  120. 120 GEAGLE said at 1:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Logan shut down like 5 run plays already

  121. 121 A_T_G said at 1:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That third down is harder to forgive.

    Bryan Smith is in

  125. 125 GEAGLE said at 1:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Remember when Eag,Les fans thought they needed to find a bigger NT to replace Logan? How did that work out for ya?

    Our front 7 is scary

    *Marcus

  129. 129 HazletonEagle said at 1:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Ill be calling him Bryan until he proves hes not the same guy

  130. 130 Greg Richards said at 1:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    At least Marcus has filled out. Smith could never get above 235(as a 4-3 DE).

  131. 131 HazletonEagle said at 1:26 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Alright Tove Lo. We’re not Talkin Bodies here. Im talking about some production bro!

    Marcus Smith!

    Raheem Mostert as a KR. Has a shot to make team as #4 RB. Tough decisions to make.

    Annnddd that was dissappointing.

    8 yards deep. Smart decision. Hate seeing rookies pushing things and trying to return kicks that deep.

  150. 150 ACViking said at 1:28 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Check the air pressure in that football . . . like a balloon.

    If it’s 104 degrees on the field, every football inflated to “maximum” allowed pressure by rule is already illegally inflated.

    Colts are cheating.

  151. 151 HazletonEagle said at 1:30 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    jesus sanchez could it be thrown any softer?

  163. 163 BobSmith77 said at 1:32 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    All Matthews. Sanchez just threw it up for him to make a play.

    Sanchez in midseason form and getting some boos.

    So hope Bradford stays healthy.

    100% the skill positions look crazy, mathews picking up 8 – 10yds a clip, players wide open all over the field.

  178. 178 Corry said at 1:33 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Welp, now I’m excited to see more of Agholor.

  179. 179 GEAGLE said at 1:33 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Hahaha Agholor turned the jets on and took off

  180. 180 CrackSammich said at 1:33 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Okay…. So the receivers will be fine.

  181. 181 Greg Richards said at 1:33 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Damn officials, get your act together. You too, Sanchez.

  182. 182 HazletonEagle said at 1:33 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    theres that insane quickness of agholor. A mortal would turn and get tackled. Agholor just vanished in a puff of smoke

  183. 183 BobSmith77 said at 1:34 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Cartoonish Road Runner style. Meep-meep.

  184. 184 OregonDucker said at 1:34 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yep, good observation.

  185. 185 A Roy said at 1:36 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Agholor looks significantly stronger and tougher than Maclin. I don’t care if they’re the same height and weight.

  186. 186 myartz04 said at 1:34 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Umm…wow.

  187. 187 shah8 said at 1:34 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Sort of interesting…Sanchez isn’t playing that well, and that TD throw was so bad. Run D is okay, considering Indy is bad. Pass D isn’t so hot.

    Indy is going to get killed vs. anyone that is sound on the run on both sides.

  188. 188 A_T_G said at 1:34 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    So, with decent QB play, we ran three plays that were touchdowns so far.

  189. 189 OregonDucker said at 1:35 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yes, we had our chances.

  190. 190 TypicalDouche said at 1:35 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Sanchez missing high on every throw. If this is any indication of the season and bradford is able to hit those open receivers this offense will go far

  191. 191 Corry said at 1:36 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That’s Sanchez missing the throws.

  192. 192 BC1968 said at 1:37 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Hence the screenname.

  193. 193 TypicalDouche said at 1:38 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yea i corrected it

  194. 194 RogerPodacter said at 1:34 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    what do you guys think? give Sanchez more snaps on offense? i think he needs to get more time to get his shit together…

  195. 195 anon said at 1:35 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    me too, i’d give him the first half. It’s not like i need to see matt barkely

  196. 196 BobSmith77 said at 1:35 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    No. It is the 1st preseason game. Let Football Jesus and Barkley get the snaps.

  197. 197 FairOaks said at 1:38 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    No. He might get some receivers injured.

  198. 198 RogerPodacter said at 1:40 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    that answers the question for me! lol its already Barkley time.

  199. 199 dandynator said at 1:34 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    wow didn’t thought he was that explosive

  200. 200 Greg Richards said at 1:35 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Okay, theory. The coaching staff has told Sanchez to intentionally be off with his ball placement to test the receivers’ ability to adjust to poor passes. Yeah, I’m sure that’s it.

  201. 201 RogerPodacter said at 1:36 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    lol i don’t trust Sanchez’s accuracy to throw a bad, yet still catchable pass on a consistent basis. : P

  202. 202 A_T_G said at 1:36 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Really, it is the only way we are going to get to run any offensive plays. Otherwise we will have a bunch of single play drives.

  203. 203 GEAGLE said at 1:37 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    They wanted sanchez to be off so that the WRs can get ready for when erratic TEBOW comes in the game,.
    ..

  204. 204 jpate said at 1:36 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    When he drafted him I always thought his skill set was more inline with Maclin but don’t rem seeing jets like those on maclin

  205. 205 GEAGLE said at 1:36 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Ryan Mathews Ran well
    ..
    OL picked up a blitz beautifully
    ..
    Pope is a BEAST bailing out Sanchez
    ..
    Agholor caught a bad screen and was GHOST!!! No celebration, No Dance, no big deal, the first of many for the kid

  207. 207 GermanEagle said at 1:36 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I really hope Bradford won’t get injured this season. Apart from the fact he has to get healthy first…

  208. 208 GEAGLE said at 1:38 PM on August 16th, 2015:

  225. 225 Tumtum said at 1:42 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Sanchez looked horrible… but I would be less concerned with the game and more concerned with the impact on the season.

  226. 226 CrackSammich said at 1:40 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    New theory: Sanchez played bad to make Barkley better for trades.

  227. 227 GEAGLE said at 1:40 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    From what I saw on offense, a little accuracy from the QB and we can toy with defenses

  228. 228 BobSmith77 said at 1:41 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    2 drives. Conclusions don’t mean anything.

    As Merrill just said, it is the 1st preseason game.

  229. 229 RogerPodacter said at 1:41 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    youre not joking, man. damn. but it is the first ps game.

  230. 230 GEAGLE said at 1:42 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I’m just talking about this game… We could have made this colts defense look really bad today… For whatever that’s worth

  231. 231 RogerPodacter said at 1:43 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    honestly? i’m glad that those ‘big’ plays didn’t go through, though. more reps for guys fighting for jobs. a broken play by the defense doesn’t tell us much about our offense.

  232. 232 GEAGLE said at 1:45 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    True that!

  233. 233 jpate said at 1:41 PM on August 16th, 2015:

  263. 263 GEAGLE said at 1:48 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He got trucked

  264. 264 BC1968 said at 1:49 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I read about this pun contest, there were ten contestants. Which one won? No pun in ten did.

  265. 265 Greg Richards said at 1:47 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I thought Goode would push to make the team. Doesn’t look like it.

  266. 266 GEAGLE said at 1:49 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Going to be hard for him to beat out Brad Jones with his OLB/ILB versatility

  267. 267 HazletonEagle said at 1:49 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    ondjio not bad

  268. 268 HazletonEagle said at 1:50 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    way to make up for being burned for the catch! Rowe!

  269. 269 HazletonEagle said at 1:50 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    some makeup speed there to catch up to Dorsett

  270. 270 Corry said at 1:50 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Eric Rowe with crappy coverage but an excellent FF.

  271. 271 TypicalDouche said at 1:50 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Death Rowe!!!!

  272. 272 A_T_G said at 1:50 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That is one in a Rowe…

  273. 273 Tumtum said at 1:50 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Was that poor coverage?

  274. 274 RogerPodacter said at 1:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    the guy was pretty open. i assume it was rowe’s responsibility…

  275. 275 wee2424 said at 1:54 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    It was, but in his defense Dorsett looks like he is going to be a force. Either way it’s the result that matters and Rowe ended up winning.

    Dorset is the type of WR that naturally gives big CBs problems.

  276. 276 jpate said at 1:50 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    rookies are balling

  277. 277 GEAGLE said at 1:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Look at Eric ROWE forcing the fumble… Corey Undlin and the seahawks cormers really brought the “stripping WRs to our secondary”.. Love seeing it rub off on the rookie

  278. 278 HazletonEagle said at 1:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Rowe is the next Peanut Tillman!

  279. 279 A_T_G said at 1:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Don’t call Rowe Peanut or he will be traded to the Steelers.

  280. 280 HazletonEagle said at 1:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Barkley is on point! Like never before. Literally. Never before

  281. 281 Greg Richards said at 1:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Interesting strategy. Let the WR make the catch so you can force the turnover.

  282. 282 HazletonEagle said at 1:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    well, that sucks.

  283. 283 anon said at 1:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    damn

  284. 284 RogerPodacter said at 1:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    barkley hits a flyswatter

  285. 285 CrackSammich said at 1:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Sucks. looks like he was making the right read on the receiver at least.

  286. 286 GEAGLE said at 1:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Come on Barkley. Fly Swatters DAMN IT. Barkley was looking good… Need him to jackup that trade value

  287. 287 OregonDucker said at 1:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Not good for him.

  288. 288 Greg Richards said at 1:53 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Was the pass low or was it just a good job by the DE? Sometimes that’s the offensive linemen’s fault for letting the DL disengage.

  289. 289 RogerPodacter said at 1:54 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    DE got his hands up. its like barkley hit one of the training camp flyswatter things.

  290. 290 OregonDucker said at 1:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Tebow time.

  291. 291 GEAGLE said at 1:53 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Noooooo long way to go,… We gotta showcase Barkley and get that trade value up… TEBOW probably starts second half

  292. 292 OregonDucker said at 1:53 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I think you and FairOaks are right. Showcase him.

  293. 293 FairOaks said at 1:53 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    You’d think Barkley would get the rest of the first half right, then Tebow the rest of the game?

  294. 294 RogerPodacter said at 1:53 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    i think barkley should get more time.
    then again, i thought sanchez would get more time… lol

  295. 295 Tumtum said at 1:54 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Sanchez certainly didnt earn that bench time.

  296. 296 GEAGLE said at 1:57 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Chip said Sanchez was only going to play a drive or two…
    ..
    This game was/is going to be all about Barkley vs, TEBOW showcase

  297. 297 BlindChow said at 1:53 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Dammit, until the INT I was going to say I’d like to see Mark Berkley take second team reps next week to send Sanchez a message.

  298. 298 BlindChow said at 1:55 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Hasselbeck looking like Sanchez…

  299. 299 HazletonEagle said at 1:55 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    yep

  300. 300 GermanEagle said at 1:56 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Just worse.

  301. 301 HazletonEagle said at 1:55 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Hasslebeck is looking poor

  302. 302 xmbk said at 1:56 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Colt season over if Luck goes down anyway.

  303. 303 Tumtum said at 1:57 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He was looking really good early on. Little hiccup there. They decided to start running the ball every play and took him out of a rhythm.

  304. 304 Crus57 said at 1:56 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    EJ Biggers should be pleased, the Colts announcers just called him Byron Maxwell.

  305. 305 A_T_G said at 1:56 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Heh, good coordination HE and BC.

  306. 306 TypicalDouche said at 1:57 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Honestly I think Rowe may be terrible in the slot, the eags should stick to his development as an outside corner he’s to suspect to inside routes

  307. 307 BlindChow said at 1:57 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Eh, first week on the job…

  308. 308 A_T_G said at 1:59 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Based on one reception? I know he is big, but he had great change of direction numbers at the combine. You might be right, but I wouldn’t want to tell the guy he isn’t allowed to compete for the open job.

  309. 309 GEAGLE said at 2:02 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    If he could hang with Phillip Dorsett, his speed/change of Direction is plenty enough.
    ..
    Can ROWE learn to play Nickel at an NFL level in one month? TΓ΄ugh task..

  310. 310 HazletonEagle said at 1:58 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    another OLB injured. Ondjio walking in to the locker room.

  311. 311 Corry said at 1:58 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Moffit missed block and penalty.

    Edit: or Kelly.

  312. 312 RogerPodacter said at 1:58 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    i’d rather see Mostert & Monangai running hte ball instead of Barner

  325. 325 A_T_G said at 2:02 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Who missed that block?

  344. 344 GEAGLE said at 2:09 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Think DENNIS Kelly.. Not positive tho,..

  345. 345 RogerPodacter said at 2:09 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    it was off of the right side, so its probably a pretty good guess

  346. 346 GEAGLE said at 2:12 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He got ran over by MS2 in practice, got called for Holding earlier… If that was him he better get it together

  347. 347 RogerPodacter said at 2:08 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Mostert. impressive run

  349. 349 anon said at 2:09 PM on August 16th, 2015:

  359. 359 OregonDucker said at 2:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Not good for Barner.

  360. 360 CrackSammich said at 2:12 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Still glad they went for it.

  362. 362 livingonapear said at 2:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Is it common for QBs to miss high in the preseason more often than wide or low? I feel like it’s not just Sanchez that is missing high, so I’m wondering if there’s something about QBs mechanics early in the season while they’re still trying to get their timing.

  363. 363 OregonDucker said at 2:14 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Usually the reason is first game jitters.

  364. 364 livingonapear said at 2:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I just meant that it’s probably releasing early since its the first pass rush they’ve seen in months

  370. 370 BC1968 said at 2:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Nothing, they got a break there. Remember last year? I hope we don’t do last year. Defensive offsides was a problem.

  371. 371 FairOaks said at 2:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

  372. 372 Corry said at 2:17 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    another peanut tillman appearance!

  376. 376 HazletonEagle said at 2:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    and its Rowe again!

  377. 377 GEAGLE said at 2:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    ROWE held him up, Maragos put his helmet on the ball,

  378. 378 FairOaks said at 2:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That ball was basically loose by the time Maragos hit him

  379. 379 HazletonEagle said at 2:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    yep. Id credit Rowe with his 2nd FF on that one.

  380. 380 GEAGLE said at 2:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Even better

  381. 381 RogerPodacter said at 2:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    how did nobody on either team catch that one?

  382. 382 CrackSammich said at 2:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Bye, Barner.

  383. 383 Greg Richards said at 2:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Probably. At least he didn’t fumble.

  384. 384 A_T_G said at 2:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That was intentional by Maragos. He stutter stepped and waited for a shot on the ball. That is exciting, because it means it is something being taught.

  385. 385 HazletonEagle said at 2:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    man Barner isnt making anything happen in any facet of the game. Lets see if Mostert can give us a Josey impersonation.

  386. 386 FairOaks said at 2:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He had a couple of nice punt returns before didn’t he? Unless that was someone else. Plus the TD run. That return sucked though.

  387. 387 HazletonEagle said at 2:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    youre right. I already forgot about all of that. Hes been that ineffective since some early good stuff.

  388. 388 BlindChow said at 2:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Time for a new punt returner.

  389. 389 RogerPodacter said at 2:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

  392. 392 Greg Richards said at 2:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    If we cut him, he gets claimed. Washington seriously needs a blocking TE.

  393. 393 Corry said at 2:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Washington needs ANY tight end. They lost their top 2 to IR already.

  394. 394 GEAGLE said at 2:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Lol they need Every TE!! jordan Reed is coming back this week, but he is about as durable as Earl Wolff

  395. 395 HazletonEagle said at 2:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Im pulling for him. I thought they were gonna practice squad him and convert to T. If he makes it as a TE thats impressive.

  396. 396 Tumtum said at 2:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Perhaps if they keep 4.

  397. 397 Crus57 said at 2:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    MSII has a decent bullrush on him, but he gets off balance trying to drive the OL back into the QB, then the OL sheds him.

  406. 406 A_T_G said at 2:23 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Would you call him, or E-Maehl?

  407. 407 RogerPodacter said at 2:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    just don’t go postal or anything

    Good read by Barkley.

  409. 409 Nailed it! said at 2:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Thats pretty good yardage there. *picked up 3 yards*

  410. 410 wee2424 said at 2:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He meant by how he had to push to get the three.

  411. 411 Nailed it! said at 2:23 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    i know it was just funny too hear you know?

  412. 412 DamonL86 said at 2:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Nice moves by Agholor

  413. 413 Tumtum said at 2:23 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    The way he grabs the ball away from his body is awesome. I wonder if he is over-doing it now because of the drop earlier where his arms stayed pretty dang close to his chest.

  414. 414 CrackSammich said at 2:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Agholor looks… strange getting tackled. I don’t know why, but that worries me.

  415. 415 HazletonEagle said at 2:23 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    he falls down like a 2×4 board.

  416. 416 Corry said at 2:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    To be fair, on that last hit, I think it was Colt Anderson going for the kill shot. Colt Anderson weighs about 140lbs soaking wet.

  417. 417 CrackSammich said at 2:23 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Is the OL allowed to push the RB like that? Announcers even called it out when Tobin just did it for Mostert.

  418. 418 HazletonEagle said at 2:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    certainly

  419. 419 BC1968 said at 2:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I think they are. It has happened at the goal line plenty of times if I’m not mistaken.

  420. 420 Tumtum said at 2:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Didn’t a new rule go in last year about pushing the pile?

  421. 421 Greg Richards said at 2:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That’s on FG attempts.

  422. 422 BC1968 said at 2:26 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    The rule has always been you can’t jump on a guy to jump in the air to block an attempt. Remember the Seattle guy was jumping the whole Carolina team last year when he tried it? He didn’t touch anyone though.

  423. 423 BC1968 said at 2:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That could be, I don’t know though.

  424. 424 Crus57 said at 2:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    AFAIK there’s a rule that says you’re not allowed to push the ballcarrier forwards.. but I’ve only seen it called as a penalty once, basically happens every running play.

  425. 425 RogerPodacter said at 2:27 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    that is my understanding as well

  426. 426 Corry said at 2:28 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I think they actually changed that rule to allow it now.

  427. 427 BC1968 said at 2:29 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    There’s been a lot of short yardage plays that it has happened. Not sure if it’s one of those rules they don’t enforce, or it’s just not a rule.

  428. 428 BlindChow said at 2:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Barner wasnt touched!

  429. 429 RogerPodacter said at 2:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    didn’t he touch out of bounds?

  430. 430 wee2424 said at 2:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Agholor is going to have some big catch and runs this year.

  431. 431 HazletonEagle said at 2:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Barner is so patient. Sometimes too patient. Like just there.

  432. 432 RogerPodacter said at 2:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Barner keeps hesitating back there.

  433. 433 anon said at 2:26 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    hopefully he’s getting work so he can find another team

  434. 434 OregonDucker said at 2:27 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    It’s a fatal weakness.

  435. 435 BC1968 said at 2:29 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That sounded like something Darth Vader would say.

  436. 436 GEAGLE said at 2:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Well Agholor already out performed amari Cooper, and all the other first round WRs are an injured mess…
    ..
    I’d like to see Agholor out play Amari each week

  437. 437 CrackSammich said at 2:26 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Is Huff playing today? haven’t heard his name.

  438. 438 Corry said at 2:26 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yeah he started the game. I don’t think he had any passes come his way.

  439. 439 Crus57 said at 2:27 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    was credited as the target on the Barkley throw that got INT’d I think

  440. 440 CrackSammich said at 2:28 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Huff was definitely open on that play, so that’s start.

  441. 441 Tumtum said at 2:27 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I saw his jersey going onto the field on the first series it looked like. Haven’t seen him since. Maybe he has earned a break today?

  442. 442 wee2424 said at 2:27 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Can you imagine how soul crushing it would be to lose a game because a missed extra point? Will happen to a few teams this year.

    Biggers looks good, he can rotate

  448. 448 Greg Richards said at 2:30 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I know WAS fans rip him but he can play outside CB and nickel CB, has some experience as a safety, and is a good STs player. I think he makes the team.

  449. 449 xmbk said at 2:31 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    You know it’s a good day when Biggers looks good.

  450. 450 Tumtum said at 2:30 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    People are going to be upset when Biggers makes this team. Not sure how he doesn’t.

  457. 457 RogerPodacter said at 2:30 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    just as i was about to type something mocking barner’s awful return he goes and does that

  458. 458 FairOaks said at 2:32 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Thought his first couple returns were good — just that third one that sucked. He was hesitating too much on this one I thought but sure turned out well

  459. 459 BC1968 said at 2:30 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Haha never catch it inside the 10 yard line. Wow redemption!

    I concede to being ridiculous.

  477. 477 BC1968 said at 2:40 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I don’t like it because I only want to concentrate on the Eagles. Sometimes guys are playing against the Eagles that are on your fantasy team. I was one and done.

  478. 478 Greg Richards said at 2:43 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Exactly. I have to be objective when picking my team but then I feel dirty because I’m rooting for some stinking Cowboy or Redskin to do well.

    So what do you think Barkley is worth in a trade?

  492. 492 HazletonEagle said at 2:39 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    a hell of a lot more than Shamchez after this game. If he keeps it up through pre-season he might actually deserve to be our #2.

    I didnt know anything about Mostert other than his 40 time. I never had the expectation that hed be falling forward every play. Im loving what Im seeing. And now the catch and run!

  512. 512 RogerPodacter said at 2:47 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    mostert. wow.

  513. 513 HazletonEagle said at 2:48 PM on August 16th, 2015:

  514. 514 BC1968 said at 2:48 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    When you can wait for your 4th read, you can play like Tom Brady everyday of the week.

  515. 515 CrackSammich said at 2:48 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    So do you keep Tomilson, or Mostert?

  516. 516 Corry said at 2:49 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Mostert. Given how much Chip wants to run the ball, plus back up at KR, he’s probably the better one to keep. Tomlinson may not have as much utility.

  517. 517 CrackSammich said at 2:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I guess it depends on how good he is at the dirtier jobs on ST. Don’t get to see much of that on TV.

  518. 518 RogerPodacter said at 2:49 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    think Tomlinson has shown enough to oust Burton?

  519. 519 CrackSammich said at 2:50 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I’m assuming they keep either a 4th TE or a 4th RB.

  520. 520 RogerPodacter said at 2:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    yea, i agree. i’m just curious if Tomlinson has shown enough to start a real competition with Burton for the #3 spot

  521. 521 CrackSammich said at 2:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I doubt it. Burton is a lock for the roster no matter what just for ST. It seems the team is pretty high on him for the H back role, though.

  522. 522 GEAGLE said at 2:50 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    No way… He means as a 4th TE

  523. 523 FairOaks said at 2:49 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That’s about the 4th completely whiffed tackle by the Colts on a quick out. The first was Agholor’s touchdown.

  524. 524 BC1968 said at 2:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I thought that was just an overthrow that the corner never expected to be caught. He ran by people downfield who had angles on him.

  525. 525 FairOaks said at 2:54 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yeah, that is true. The corner almost looked like he was going for the pass on Agholor’s TD never thinking it was going to be caught that early. They have whiffed a couple of other times on Agholor and then on Mostert’s big RAC.

  526. 526 BC1968 said at 2:55 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I agree with you that for the most part they have been whiffing. Agholor running by people who had angles on him was pretty exciting though.

  527. 527 GEAGLE said at 2:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Let me know if you guys see #74 Bunche on the OL…

  528. 528 GEAGLE said at 2:53 PM on August 16th, 2015:

  529. 529 HazletonEagle said at 2:54 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    im not seeing him get to the QB against backups breaux… Im not impressed.

  530. 530 Corry said at 2:54 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I think he looks a bit awkward yet with some of those pass rush moves, but you do see progress from last year.

  531. 531 GEAGLE said at 3:00 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    The pass rush HASNT been particularly effective, but he is starting to use moves, chain moves together, counters… Big improvement from last year,.. Step in the right direction for the kid, but yes, long way to go,,
    ..
    Great to see him set the edge and handle the run well. He wasn’t strong enough to do that last year

  532. 532 Bert's Bells said at 2:54 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Hard to believe the run defense is going to be even better this season.

    huh? Hes having a pretty good game

  542. 542 Bert's Bells said at 2:57 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Bad like Michael Jackson.

  543. 543 GermanEagle said at 2:59 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Which one?

  544. 544 wee2424 said at 2:59 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He has been good in coverage and against the run but germaneagle is right. His pass rush looks very slow and weak. He looks really bad at going after the QB. I hope it’s because he is tired.

    I thought his speed and quickness would show but it does not at all.

  545. 545 jpate said at 3:01 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He got pressure few times. One time it looked like he got held. Overall with the coverage and run support it’s a good game, more then most expected out of him at this point.

  546. 546 wee2424 said at 5:27 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He looked very good in coverage and against the run. Exceeded expectations there.

    However I was very disapointed in his pass rush. I wasn’t expecting him to really have a sack. I just wanted to see pressure. I’ll never expect him to bully an OL but I thought he would show some of his natural talent which is speed and athleticism. You didn’t see that at all in his rush. He overly used the spin move which is his go to and the T would just easily push him away or to the ground. His spin moved lacked any type of speed or quickness.

    As the third OLB he is going to be rushing against the ones, not the twos. For the most part against the 2s he was man handled.

  547. 547 TypicalDouche said at 3:04 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    what game are you watching?

  548. 548 A_T_G said at 3:08 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He is watching Michael Strahan with Kelly Ripa.

  549. 549 GermanEagle said at 3:38 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Eagles vs Raiders. Super bowl.

  550. 550 TypicalDouche said at 4:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Well this is Merica and we’re watching eagles vs colts preseason

  551. 551 HazletonEagle said at 2:56 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    alright dudes thats twice this QB took off on you. How about some awareness of the personnel you are facing?

  552. 552 RogerPodacter said at 2:56 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    i don’t think thats really something that comes into play in ps games

  553. 553 Bert's Bells said at 2:57 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Right. They play packages, not so much scheming to players.

  554. 554 GEAGLE said at 2:57 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Lol probably didint spemd too much time talking about the stremgths and weakness of the #3 QB

  555. 555 HazletonEagle said at 3:03 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    hey dude. Its Bryan Bennett. Id say Chip knows about him already seeing as how he played at Oregon.

  556. 556 Greg Richards said at 2:56 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Consistently in preseason, teams and players struggle against misdirection and QB runs. You don’t game plan for specific players in preseason.

  557. 557 HazletonEagle said at 2:58 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Its not pre-season for me. Eagles football has officially begun. I want better results!

  558. 558 HazletonEagle said at 2:59 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Maraogos trying to take out our 3rd string (now starter) Nickel.

  559. 559 RogerPodacter said at 2:59 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    biggers could teach watkins how to play that route

  560. 560 CrackSammich said at 2:59 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Maragos really living up to that 42 on his chest with the hits on his own team.

  561. 561 HazletonEagle said at 3:01 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Josh Robinson against 3rd stringers is not fair. Dude is a bowling ball.

  562. 562 Greg Richards said at 3:01 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Marcus Smith needs to work on his pass rush, but he can cover.

  563. 563 RogerPodacter said at 3:01 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    was that watkins that whiffed on that tackle? yea

  564. 564 wee2424 said at 3:03 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He did, but he has been really good in coverage.

  565. 565 Corry said at 3:01 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    REALLY poor tackling. Yuck.

  566. 566 wee2424 said at 3:02 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    It looks like the D is exhausted out there. It is reportedly 110 degrees on the field.

  567. 567 BlindChow said at 3:01 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Wow, that was terrible.

  568. 568 wee2424 said at 3:01 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    D leagues absolutely exhausted.

  569. 569 Corry said at 3:02 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yeah I guess that’s to be expected on a field that’s 100+ degrees.

  570. 570 BC1968 said at 3:01 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    The fan with the green face upset about 3rd string td from opposing team: Dedicated.

  571. 571 A_T_G said at 3:02 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That looked like Allen, DRC, and Babin.

  572. 572 RogerPodacter said at 3:02 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    need more upvotes

  573. 573 Tumtum said at 3:05 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Cmon Allen was better than that! Other two are getting to much credit. They wouldn’t be anywhere near a RB with the ball.

  574. 574 Crus57 said at 3:02 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    #73 Brian Mihalik needs warning lights and a reversing alarm.. always getting pushed backwards.

  575. 575 BC1968 said at 3:03 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Two big red lights. One on each ass cheek.

  576. 576 Greg Richards said at 3:03 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    They don’t want to risk injuries so they don’t tackle to the ground in the TC practices. So I wouldn’t expect everyone’s tackling form to be up to par yet.

  577. 577 BlindChow said at 3:07 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Eh, Andy Reid’s practices were notorious for hard-hitting tackling. And his teams were notorious for awful tackling.

    Our tackling overall has been much improved without TC tackling.

  578. 578 HazletonEagle said at 3:04 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    its time. get your tebow pretzels

  579. 579 BC1968 said at 3:04 PM on August 16th, 2015:

  581. 581 GEAGLE said at 3:05 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Lol they are making Marcus play all game in 102 Heat,,.. You can tell he haslost some steam, he was way more effective early against the starting and 2nd team Colts…. They figure they make him work, he owes us from the checks he collected last year.
    ..
    Lol that pussy Earl Wolff should get thrown onto the field

  582. 582 Greg Richards said at 3:05 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Think it’s more that they’re short on depth due to injuries.

  583. 583 HazletonEagle said at 3:05 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    yep

  584. 584 Greg Richards said at 3:06 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Did Wolff steal your girl or something?

  585. 585 GEAGLE said at 3:09 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    No… Just stealing money and Talent… Fucking BITCH!

  586. 586 mksp said at 4:10 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Dude never been laid in his life, please.

    Those are some nice jugs.

  588. 588 A_T_G said at 3:06 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    So we better get used to this: Tebow coming in to mop up after the starters make the opponent look like a high school team.

  589. 589 HazletonEagle said at 3:06 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    thats some speed to take that corner. he had no angle.

  590. 590 RogerPodacter said at 3:06 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    first thing tebow does is tell the crowd to shut the f up.
    ok, i’m on board with this so far.

  591. 591 HazletonEagle said at 3:06 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    longest screen pass ever

  592. 592 GEAGLE said at 3:07 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I can’t believe I’m watching TEBOW QB the Eagles…. This is like a reoccurring Nightmare for me playing out right before my eyes smh…

    whats with these low snaps!?

  594. 594 Greg Richards said at 3:07 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    OMG that wind up took foreeeevvvrrr

  597. 597 HazletonEagle said at 3:07 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    how come Tebow comes in and theres no more room for Mostert?

  598. 598 MichaelFloyd84 said at 3:07 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Lets be honest guys, its mighty clear at this point that Marcus Smith aint gonna be shit. The fact that people are semi-excited about this performance is all the proof we need. He looks slow, weak, tired, and plays like he has NOTHING between his ears. No idea what they thought they saw in him.

  599. 599 GEAGLE said at 3:08 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    LOL smh…

  600. 600 BC1968 said at 3:07 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Uh oh he may have to throw a ball longer than 5 yards, look out.

  601. 601 anon said at 3:07 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He needs to keep on those

    missile, right read under pressure.

  606. 606 HazletonEagle said at 3:09 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    hes been more accurate than Sanchez anyway…

  607. 607 BC1968 said at 3:09 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Announcer says media attention drives him crazy, sucks Tebow’s ass after a few throws.

  608. 608 RogerPodacter said at 3:10 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    too funny

  609. 609 Insomniac said at 3:10 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Tomlinson is soooooo slow

  610. 610 Greg Richards said at 3:10 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He’s Brent Celek 2.0

  611. 611 Insomniac said at 3:11 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I think he might be slower than Celek right now

  612. 612 Corry said at 3:10 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    One thing I am noticing, Tebow is holding that ball up higher rather than down around his belly….that alone is going to shorten the amount of time it takes to get the pass out.

  613. 613 A_T_G said at 3:11 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yep. It looks very…coached. You can tell he has been working on it.

  614. 614 livingonapear said at 3:11 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He was working with Tom House in the offseason. House is a former pitching coach (worked w/Nolan Ryan) who is really big on stuff like that. He says that a player is going to throw however they are going to throw, and you can’t change that. What you should change is how they go into that throw.

  615. 615 GEAGLE said at 3:10 PM on August 16th, 2015:

  618. 618 HazletonEagle said at 3:12 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    agholor, rowe, barkley
    Sanchez for being terrible.

  619. 619 Insomniac said at 3:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Barkley doing better than Sanchez? That wasn’t expected.

  620. 620 HazletonEagle said at 3:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Tebow is so far too. Sanchez was by far the worst QB today. Maybe the worst player so far.

  621. 621 xmbk said at 3:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Starting D looked good.

  622. 622 HazletonEagle said at 3:14 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    oh yeah. And the entire DL.

  623. 623 BC1968 said at 3:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    D line is beast.

  624. 624 A Roy said at 3:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Ryan Mathews ran great, through big holes.

  626. 626 BC1968 said at 3:12 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    C’mon Parkey!

  632. 632 anon said at 3:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Uh-oh, is Parkey going the way of what’s his name?

  633. 633 GEAGLE said at 3:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

  634. 634 Insomniac said at 3:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Damn Henery missing FGs again…oh wait

  635. 635 A_T_G said at 3:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Boy, Parkey can’t hit anything in Indy. No wonder they got rid of him.

  636. 636 RobNE said at 3:17 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    the game is in Philly

  637. 637 A_T_G said at 3:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Damn…

  638. 638 Nick C said at 3:14 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Parkey looking like a henery regression early on… Hopefully he’s just working out some kinks

  639. 639 ACViking said at 3:14 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He didn’t have any kinks last year.

    At all.

  640. 640 FairOaks said at 3:16 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Well, we only got to see him from the end of preseason last year.

    His ball still goes very straight, just a bit off line. That was wide by inches.

  641. 641 Greg Richards said at 3:14 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Ks can go into funks. He was great in TC and then a few days ago had a bad stretch where he was wide. That’s continued over today. Henery didn’t have the mental toughness to climb out of the funk. Hope Parkey does.

  642. 642 Crus57 said at 3:16 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Looking at the replay, Parkey’s kick went straight, just his aim was slightly wide right. Much easier to adjust than Henery’s kicks always hooking.

  643. 643 RogerPodacter said at 3:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    this round of DL is getting pushed back like crazy

  644. 644 Greg Richards said at 3:16 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    3rd string. Won’t be on team during regular season.

    probably!

  648. 648 BC1968 said at 3:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I thought Tebow was going to play against the kids at halftime to show his stuff.

  649. 649 ACViking said at 3:16 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    This Josh Robinson kid is built like Trent Richardson

    But plays like an NFL player.

  650. 650 HazletonEagle said at 3:16 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    love the way he runs. hes short and round. everythign just deflects off of him. really tough to tackle, especially with his hard running style. Michael Turner like.

  651. 651 ACViking said at 3:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Michael Turner . . .

    Great comparison.

    Robby has a bit more niftiness

  652. 652 GEAGLE said at 3:16 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Brad Jones has had a nice game

  653. 653 A_T_G said at 3:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    And he is the best ILB to flash in terms of roster building.

  654. 654 anon said at 3:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    he’s a vet playing rookies

  655. 655 A_T_G said at 3:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    True.

    Has Taylor Hart played today?

  660. 660 RogerPodacter said at 3:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    haven’t heard his name at all. could be a good thing for a DB, lol

  661. 661 Greg Richards said at 3:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He was with 2nd team. They didn’t play Curry much. He’s a quasi-1st stringer.

  662. 662 Insomniac said at 3:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Denzel Rice looks good in coverage

  663. 663 BC1968 said at 3:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Let’s go to commercial so we can come back and run two plays and then go to commercial again.

  664. 664 RogerPodacter said at 3:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    was that ST penalty on Jaylen Watkins?
    edit: guess so, he’s the only 37 on the roster that i could find.

  665. 665 Insomniac said at 3:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yea

  666. 666 HazletonEagle said at 3:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    jump pass! great catch!

  667. 667 BC1968 said at 3:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Bailey may be better than Cooper.

  668. 668 A_T_G said at 3:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Not exactly setting the bar high there.

  669. 669 BC1968 said at 3:23 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I know, but undrafted rookie, local long shot kid. It’s not bad considering.

  670. 670 Bert's Bells said at 3:23 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That depends on what the meaning of “may” may be.

  671. 671 Nick C said at 3:23 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    It’s ridiculous that he is still a starter

  672. 672 Greg Richards said at 3:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    They seem to have done a good job in finding UDFAs this year – Denzel Rice, Eric Tomlinson, Raheem Mostert, and Rasheed Bailey all have a shot of making the team. Kelly said that Malcolm Bunch has impressed too.

  673. 673 HazletonEagle said at 3:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    good read to keep it

  674. 674 HazletonEagle said at 3:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    woah tebow

  675. 675 HazletonEagle said at 3:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    oh he was bumped during the release

  676. 676 Bert's Bells said at 3:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Bailey may be the next Na Brown (more like Hank Baskett) but as long as he’s not the next Riley Cooper I’m all for giving him the #5 WR slot.

    #Tebow

  679. 679 BC1968 said at 3:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He could’ve kept going to his right instead of stopping.

    Is Barkley celebrating?

  683. 683 A_T_G said at 3:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    And that is why he is a #4 QB.

  684. 684 jpate said at 3:26 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    safe to say 3rd qb spot is barkley’s job to loose

  685. 685 A_T_G said at 3:26 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Hell, he is closer to #2 than #4.

  686. 686 HazletonEagle said at 3:26 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    yep. maybe he can even win the #2. Closer competition between Tebow and Sanchez for the 3rd spot .

  688. 688 BC1968 said at 3:27 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Considering Tebow does the running thing, nothing is a safe bet with Chip.

  689. 689 BC1968 said at 3:26 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Barkley should have had the whole 3rd quarter.

  691. 691 BC1968 said at 3:29 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    It is hot though. I think he did ok, but deserved at least the rest of the 3rd quarter.

  692. 692 A_T_G said at 3:28 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    How did that play work?

  693. 693 Corry said at 3:29 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Seeing someone else in #58 is weird.

  694. 694 Greg Richards said at 3:30 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Does Bryan Braman automatically get a spot? I know he’s a STs beast. But he contributes almost nothing as an OLB. Maybe keep Acho ahead of him.

  695. 695 BC1968 said at 3:30 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Has Tebow gotten laid yet?

  696. 696 Greg Richards said at 3:31 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    After the game, he’ll have his pick.

  697. 697 Bert's Bells said at 3:42 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He’d probably have a couple picks during the game if he wasn’t giving the defense the sack.

  703. 703 xmbk said at 3:32 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    For the starters? Not enough data for them, too many variables to judge units. But the secondary play has looked encouraging, as well as OL and receivers.

    Really more about players.

  717. 717 Crus57 said at 3:39 PM on August 16th, 2015:

  721. 721 HazletonEagle said at 3:39 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    thats twice on 3rd downs where he held it and then took a sack. Ive seen enough. Tebowmania. Fun while it lasted.

  722. 722 BC1968 said at 3:41 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    This isn’t the offense where you hesitate, he’s out of his element. He would’ve been decent against the kids at halftime.

    so, after Agholor’s performance today, is there any question that he should take Cooper’s place in the starting lineup?I guess we need Huff to step up to win the other spot otherwise Agholor replaces Huff and Cooper still starts. Thats frustrating.

  810. 810 RogerPodacter said at 4:04 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    i think Agholor still needs some more time

  812. 812 BC1968 said at 4:04 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Didinger talk about that. He said it doesn’t matter who starts, it matters who plays the most. Maybe this local kid will win a spot. Is it too much money to just cut Cooper?

  813. 813 Anders said at 4:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Huff is already starting

  814. 814 HazletonEagle said at 4:46 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    right but the problem is that any time Agholor gets in with the 1s, its in place of Huff not Cooper. So the point is that Agholor needs to start in place of Cooper not Huff.

  815. 815 Media Mike said at 4:47 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Those drops need to stop before I can let Nelson start.

    But if Cooper gets run out of a starting spot, he’s making too much money. Cut him.

    The report is that Wolff had swelling in his knee, that isn’t about pain tolerance, that’s a permanently destroyed knee most likely due to a year too late diagnosis

  867. 867 Media Mike said at 4:43 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Reynolds had a decent enough rep coming out of Stanford, struggled from the neck up as a rookie, but worked hard on the p-squad.

    You don’t see a chance he could have improved into a decent depth player?

  868. 868 HazletonEagle said at 4:48 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    not really. I wasnt a fan of him at Stanford. Aside from that, even looking it comlpetely unbiased, I look at what the eagles ask their safeties to do, and Reynolds doesnt even fit the job description. Ill never understand the pick.

  869. 869 Media Mike said at 4:49 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I’d accusing you of holding too closely to you draft eval of him, but I’d get hit by lightning the next time I went outside. I tend to very “stone tablet” in my approach to opinion permanence.

  870. 870 HazletonEagle said at 4:50 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    that may be the case, but I still dont see him as a guy who is ever going to cover a WR in the slot like we want our safeties to do. So, why is he here?

  871. 871 wee2424 said at 4:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    ST, depth and to progress as a player. Same as most 5th round picks.

  872. 872 Insomniac said at 5:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Uhh we don’t always use our safeties to cover slot WRs..that’s why we have a slot CB.

  873. 873 Jarock said at 5:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    True, but that’s not Billy’s preference. In his ideal world, he stays in base and his safety can double as a 3rd corner. That’s the whole reason why Jenkins and Thurmond, both ex-corners are our starting safeties.

  874. 874 Media Mike said at 5:27 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Like that time he had Patrick Chung covering Dez in a must win game in Dallas at the end of the season in 2013?

    Why must you torture me this way πŸ˜›

  876. 876 HazletonEagle said at 6:53 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    no kidding. But they do often. Thats why we dont use our slot CB that much.
    you know, it seems people throw out all logic to defend Reynolds. This has been happening since the day we drafted him. Im done on the subject.
    Hopefully he plays well enough as a backup as long as he is here. And hopefully sooner than later, they find a guy who is a better fit so he can go somewhere else. Itd be better for us, and for his career too.

  877. 877 wee2424 said at 4:50 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I disagree, I think with some hard work he does fit what the Eagles want in their S.

  878. 878 HazletonEagle said at 4:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I think he is a very hard worker but just doesnt possess that kind of agility to cover WRs 1 on 1. Will never have that as part of his game.

  879. 879 wee2424 said at 4:56 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That is something he can work on. I think he has the physical tools to do so. Most 5th round picks don’t come out with the ability to cover NFL WRs 1v1 immediately. Most rookie DBs regardless if they are a 1st, 2nd or 6th round pick have trouble in coverage initially.

    It’s now his second year and he has shown some progression. He just needs to continue with that progression. That’s as much as you can really ask for while being realistic.

    He isn’t physically dominating like most DBa, but if he can master his technique he may work out. Undlin is huge for our young secondary.

  880. 880 Greg Richards said at 6:05 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He missed most of the spring practices as a rookie because of Stanford’s quarter schedule and late graduation. That put him behind from the get go.

  881. 881 Media Mike said at 6:08 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Quarters are quite possible the dumbest way to approach a collegiate schedule. Pure trash non NE foolishment.

  882. 882 Jarock said at 6:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    It’s ok that he was behind. It’s not that he was unable to show anything to the coaching staff last season despite having pure trash in front of him the entire season. Still, he played well today. Hope it continues. Would rather have him on the field than Prosinsky or Maragos.

  883. 883 wee2424 said at 4:47 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Why would it be fools gold? First pick was sort of a gimme but he did his job and was in the right spot. Second pick he read the QB and jumped the route. Showed good hands on what was a bullet. Also had a ST tackle which is important in making the team. Showed good speed and acceleration. I’m not saying he is going to start but can be good depth on the 53.

  884. 884 Media Mike said at 4:46 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Plus players today:

    Barner (kills me to say it)
    Reynolds

    Minus players today
    J. Watkins
    Entire O-line not named Peters/Kelce/Johnson.

  885. 885 Fufina said at 4:51 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    J Watkins looked good in coverage both in nickle and outside at times. Tackling not so much… but it is a small sample.

    2nd team OL looked pretty decent against the colts 2nd string (no idea how good or bad they are however).

  886. 886 Media Mike said at 4:53 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Watkins had a defended pass that should have been an INT and got beat badly by Carter on what should have been an easy to defend route.

  887. 887 Jarock said at 5:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Thought Watkins was up and down. Wouldn’t call it a minus. Saw some positives, but he made some mistakes too. EJ Biggars (gag me) actually played fairly well. Only O-line I thought was awful was Graff.

  888. 888 Media Mike said at 5:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I like Biggers as a depth player.

  889. 889 Jarock said at 5:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I still have visions of us beating him like a drum. Just watched a replay of the Washington game that we lost the other day. Even in the win, Biggars was brutal.

  890. 890 Media Mike said at 4:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Paul Dawson, 2 solo tackles and 1 TFL
    Jordan Hicks – WHIFF

    Not to judge Hicks after one pre-season game, but that was a bad whiff and I have no idea if Dawson missed a ton of tackles for the Bengals.

  891. 891 Media Mike said at 4:57 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    With the caveat that there isn’t a lot of information available yet on the play of the “starting” guards today; would anybody be surprised if we read a lot of practice reports this week about the Ravens D line getting a lot of pressure up the middle that Bradford only plays minimally next week and the Eagles call 75% runs while Bradford is in?

    I have nightmares of Suggs running a stunt behind the DE, smoking Barbre, and killing Bradford.

  892. 892 Fufina said at 4:59 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Well generally teams don’t blitz much – especially with their starters.

    Bradford needs to get hit a bit to see how he reacts, if he cannot handle the heat in game 2 pre season he will fair no better in 3 weeks time.

  893. 893 Media Mike said at 5:01 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I just HATE playing the Ravens in pre-season because they seem to always put kill shots on people in pre-season. Ike Reece accused them of playing “penitentiary ball” during a pre-season game a few years ago and they body bagged Vick when he was a Falcon in a pre-season game.

  894. 894 wee2424 said at 5:10 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That’s part of what always has made them a good defensive team. They have a killer attitude, sometimes you can’t turn that off. All the best D’s in the history of the NFL have that attitude. Whether it was pre season, regular season or pro bowl Dawkins always had that attitude. I remember him killing people in the Pro Bowl.

    You can’t expect their depth to not play without that mentality. They are trying to make a 53 man roster spot just like most of the depth in the NFL right now.

    I look at it as a test for our team. Will they respond or be bullied?

  895. 895 Media Mike said at 5:11 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Exactly.

    So I’d prefer to avoid that in fake games.

  896. 896 wee2424 said at 5:49 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    They aren’t quite what they were in the past so I don’t think you have to worry about it to the extent you may have had to a few years back.

    However I like it, let’s see what this team is made of. You don’t want to find out they can’t handle a bully or a dogfight midway through the season or in the playoffs. Let’s learn now, and give the young guys a taste of it so they aren’t overwhelmed when the games do count.

  897. 897 wee2424 said at 5:05 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I thought Gardner and Barbre were very solid in limited action. Surrounded by Peter’s, Kelce, and LJ them being solid may be all we need.

    We won’t get a real feel for then untill the regular season when they are targeted though. People seemed confused at times as to why our depth at OL looked so good in pre season but struggled in the regular season last year. The reason is because in the pre season they weren’t targeted and in the regular season they were. Nobody is going to target JP, LJ, and Kelce when you have Gardner or Tobin inside last year.

  898. 898 Jarock said at 5:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Graff was the only guy I noticed who really played like garbage today. Colts beat him like a drum all game long. Was a bit disturbed by the lack of pressure from the 2nd and 3rd team DL and LB. Overall, nothing to really complain about though. Thought that the Eagles didn’t play all that sharp, but still handily beat the colts. I’ll take that every week.

  899. 899 Media Mike said at 5:17 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Who ever got thrown into Tebow’s lap on the one incomplete pass needs to go take some roids.

  900. 900 livingonapear said at 5:01 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    All Sam Bradford has to do is stay healthy and be competent in this offense. At no point did it feel like Indy had the play figured out or contained. The only thing keeping that from being a blood bath was a few drops and overthrows

  901. 901 Media Mike said at 5:02 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Sanchez did a nice job reminding everybody why he’s not an NFL starter.

  902. 902 livingonapear said at 5:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That miss on a wide open Matthews was brutal.

    Watching the Bucs vs Vikings replay and wishing we had Bridgewater. If only we had known then what we know now about Foles

  903. 903 Media Mike said at 5:16 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yeah. And Bridgewater was a guy a lot of us were hoping the Eagles would get after 2012 concluded and before Foles had that record year.

    And the Browns traded up to get Johnny Streetball while Bridgewater was on the board.

  904. 904 livingonapear said at 5:17 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Eh, for all we know, Chip had no interest in Bridgewater.

  905. 905 Media Mike said at 5:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    They had no interest in QB in round 1 period.

  906. 906 livingonapear said at 5:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    But even if Foles hadn’t played so well, and even if QB had been an obvious hole; there were legit questions about Bridgewater’s ability. Who knows.

  907. 907 Media Mike said at 5:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That is true, but for better or for worse if Kelly wants a guy; the trigger gets pulled. So I agree with “who knows” on how Kelly may have seen or not seen Bridgewater.

  908. 908 Jarock said at 5:30 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That’s what makes Tebow on the team at all so baffling to me. Whether your a fan of running QB’s or not (and I know you’re not, Media Mike), Tebow’s habit of holding the ball is maddening.

    Thought that both Barkley and Tebow played exactly as I expected. Barkley is a low upside guy who understands the game. Reminds me of Ty Detmer a bit. Tebow is an good athlete who has improved his accuracy, but still doesn’t really understand how to play QB in a pass first league.

  909. 909 Media Mike said at 5:33 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Tebow literally has zero clue on what to do when his first read isn’t there. That doesn’t mean that he can’t be helpful using a gimmick play that is never ever a repeat of a prior gimmick play, but the team would be screwed if he had to play extended snaps due to injury.

    Me too, and I’m an MSII supporter.

  912. 912 Media Mike said at 5:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Likewise. MSII was a guy I kept taking as an Eagle in mock drafts………..in the 2nd round. But I very much wanted to get him.

    We’ll see if he justifies being taken in the first round over the next two years. I’m optimistic that he does, but he has to keep improving.

  913. 913 Jarock said at 5:40 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He just has to get more physical. If you could take MSII’s athleticism and put Brian Braman’s aggression into the same body, you’d have an all-pro LB. Thought MSII was ok today. Still a bit too finesse.

  914. 914 Media Mike said at 5:41 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Love him in coverage however. The ability to play in space vs. (in theory) more athletic TEs and RBs is a valuable skill.

    However you don’t take coverage LBs in the first round.

  915. 915 Tumtum said at 6:02 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He looked like a potato when rushing the passer. I’m not for or against him in general, but today his pash rushing didn’t look great to me.

  916. 916 Jarock said at 6:08 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He looks like a guy who’s trying to think his way around the guy instead of just whipping him. He’s got to get out of his own head and just go.

  917. 917 Jarock said at 5:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    We could have taken Bridgewater or Derek Carr. Either would be far better than any of the dregs who started @ qb today.

    Barkley looked really good to my eyes. Take that pick on the batted ball out and I don’t know how you give him any bad marks.

  919. 919 Jarock said at 6:04 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He’s capped talent wise. He understands the game, but lacks the gun of a top flight pocket QB or the athleticism of a two-way QB. He makes the most out of his limited talent, but I’m convinced he’ll never be more than a decent back-up. Bennett, despite the picks, has more upside both in arm-talent and athleticism.

  920. 920 Tumtum said at 8:04 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    If he can be the next A.J Feely for us I would be very pleased.

  921. 921 BobSmith77 said at 5:57 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    2 series. Like the first week in spring training for MLB hitters. Who cares really.

  922. 922 Media Mike said at 6:00 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    When you have Eagles writers / reporters trying to inflate the value of Sanchez as a player it can become quite annoying.

  923. 923 Tumtum said at 5:58 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Sanchez was atrocious, but unfortunately, that is what we paid for.

  924. 924 GEAGLE said at 5:04 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Chip made it sound like forget the depth chart, if you play the best in the preseason game they will figure out a way to keep you.. Gave that answer In context of Ed Reynolds and Barner Balling!!
    ..
    Ed did nothing last year, but today he looked like the intercepting Ball Hawk he was as a sophomore.. Happy for the kid
    ..
    Braman also may have earned himself some #2nd team OLB reps maybe fill in for Travis long
    ..
    “Barkley in year 3 of this offense should show growth and wipe the floor with Tebow who just learned the offense 3 months ago”….. So far that held true.. Good for Barkley, he hasn’t been given anything here happy he starting to show some growth.. Let’s see if he can build off if against the Ravens

  925. 925 GEAGLE said at 5:05 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I haven’t bet on a football game since I was a teenager… But with our backups getting more reps then everyone, and The fact we have better QB depth then most teams, I might have to bet on the Eagles in every preseason game.. Our depth should beat most teams depth in the second half.

  926. 926 JoeBlow said at 5:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    most important stat of the day…..no injuries

  927. 927 Media Mike said at 5:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That was very big.

  928. 928 CrackSammich said at 5:26 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I haven’t heard how severe, but the one backup OLB left with an injury.

  929. 929 JoeBlow said at 5:39 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    oh yea forgot about him

  930. 930 Media Mike said at 5:40 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    If you check the first roster cuts, you’ll remember his name!

  931. 931 BobSmith77 said at 5:38 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Two things I did see:

    – Multiple shots of the kids playing football at halftime. The NFL has done this now in a couple of preseason games.

    Good thing or more a sign by them to try to counter the rampant drop in Peewee football environment?

    – The multiple commercials for ‘Eagles Way’ where the Eagles are just trying to ring more $$$ out of their fan base. No mention of even a portion of it going to charity except efforts to promote youth football.

  932. 932 Media Mike said at 5:40 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I’d love to buy a few of those bricks, but my ideas would get censored I’m sure.

    – Fuck Norman Braman
    – Nate Allen is a fucker
    – Kelvin Martin scored on an illegal block
    – This brick would be better used upside the head of a Giants fan
    – Get my Michael Phelps on

  933. 933 BobSmith77 said at 5:42 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    If it was something where a meaningful percentage of the dollars would go to a fitting charity (take your pick) but it is just a crass money grab and it was on 3 times today while I was at the gym.

    Say what you want about the players and their notable & high-profile incidents off the field but collectively the NFL owners are a bunch of real shits including Lurie.

  934. 934 Media Mike said at 5:44 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    And this is penny ante as well. Why not just include the bricks as a perk of owning season tickets or as a nice olive branch to all of the people who had their rectums prison raped via PSLs?

  935. 935 Greg Richards said at 6:02 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That specific thing might not be a charity, but the Eagles are one of the more charitable and socially active organizations out there.

  936. 936 KAJomo said at 8:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I am actually the sales rep for the paver manafucture providing this pavers. Once the project is paid for all of the proceeds are going to the Eagles youth Partnership.

    I have nothing to do with the Eagles selling their engraved pavers, but its is pretty cool. You recieve a replica in a glass display case for you display in addition to the paver onsite at the stadium.

  937. 937 Jarock said at 5:46 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Not worried about Parkey yet, but I have noticed, when he misses, it’s almost always a push to the right. Not sure why it keeps happening, but I’m pretty sure if you watched replays of every Parkey miss as a pro, it would look like the same attempt on repeat πŸ˜›

  938. 938 Tumtum said at 5:54 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Lets hope they were first game jitters.

  939. 939 Media Mike said at 5:56 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I would say focus more than jitters. He hasn’t kicked in a live circumstance in a long time.

  940. 940 BobSmith77 said at 5:47 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Generally Mayock isn’t a terrible announcer but I wish he would dial it down a bit during the broadcast. Too much schtick and over-the-top hyperbole.

    Yeah we get it. You bring some worthwhile observations and knowledge. Don’t need to constantly try to prove it.

  941. 941 BobSmith77 said at 5:52 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Is there a team that depends and leans more on their QB than the Colts since the mid-to-late 80s Broncos (Elway) or the early 90s Dolphins (Marino)?

  942. 942 ACViking said at 5:54 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Patriots with Brady?

  943. 943 BobSmith77 said at 5:56 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Maybe ACViking the last few years but they had a pretty good and underrated defense last year.

    Good point though about Brady. Maybe the early 00s Colts with Manning too.

  944. 944 ACViking said at 6:09 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Agree . . . Manning – Colts of early 00s.

    And that Colts defense, I think, was weaker than any defense Elway had in the 80s.

    Somehow, from 1985-89, during the regular season and AFC playoffs, Broncos DC Joe Collier was able to get the “Orange Crush” to deliver decent to good to even excellent stats (1st in Pts/3rd in Yrds – 1989).

    But in the SB . . . car wreck

  945. 945 Media Mike said at 6:10 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Nobody was stopping the Niners that year. I was so happy to see Elway get his titles at the end of his career.

  946. 946 ACViking said at 6:12 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I meant that, regardless of whom the Broncos played in the SB during the ’80s . . . car wreck defense.

    Starting with the 2nd half of the Giants game in ’86. Through the entire Doug Williams-mess-of-a-game in ’87 and then ’89.

  947. 947 Media Mike said at 6:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yeah, not well-done by the Broncos coaching staff in those games.

    And the f-ing BS Giants only won that title in 86 because Jim McMahon was injured.

  948. 948 ACViking said at 6:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Bears ’86 defense under Vince Tobin is a forgotten group — like the Birds of ’91.

    Same talent as ’85, but a more sound scheme.

  949. 949 Media Mike said at 6:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    http://www.pro-football-reference.com/years/1986/opp.htm

    http://www.pro-football-reference.com/years/1985/opp.htm

    The 86 Bears D was 5 yards better than the 85 version……..while having a worse team on O to cover for.

    But they’re both bullshit compared to the 91 Eagles.

  950. 950 BobSmith77 said at 6:12 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I remember Mecklenberg, Fletcher, and Atwater (Broncos’ better version of Andre Waters) offhand without looking it up and a bunch of other dudes.

  951. 951 ACViking said at 6:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Browns fans remember CB Jeremiah Castille

  952. 952 Media Mike said at 6:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Dennis Smith was the big time safety of those earlier Broncos teams.

  953. 953 BobSmith77 said at 6:26 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Good memory. Atwater was a rookie I think in ’89 and the NFL rookie of the year that year?

  954. 954 Media Mike said at 6:27 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Could be. Rulon Jones was another stud on those 80s Broncos Ds.

  955. 955 Media Mike said at 6:29 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I just looked it up. Some Derrick Thomas scrub won ROY in 89.

  956. 956 FairOaks said at 7:36 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Manning – Colts for probably his entire career. They were a perennial 12+ win team with Manning; when he was out for the year they finish worst in the league. He cost himself his own job by being injured the year Andrew Luck was available as the top pick.

  957. 957 Media Mike said at 5:55 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    But isn’t RG3&out every bit as good as Luck because Washington would have taken him first overall anyway?

  958. 958 xmbk said at 5:59 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That was my takeaway as well.

  959. 959 BobSmith77 said at 6:01 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Surprised how bad the Colts backups were at tackling today. Looked as bad and inept at times as the defenders in Super Temco when you could run up and down the field repeatedly with Bo Jackson for the entire quarter:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PBvOxicz-0

  960. 960 Jarock said at 6:10 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Amusing note . . . Elway, Marino, and Manning for most of their careers were all disappointments in the playoffs most of their careers. Elway didn’t win til Denver turned into a run first team. Marino never won and Manning, despite the gaudy stats, has one SB to his credit and he beat an extremely mediocre Bears team that season.

  961. 961 Jarock said at 6:14 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Point being, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Colts follow a similar pattern. They’ve got to get better on D if they want to win in the post-season. Just got steamrolled by the Pats last year and I don’t see much improvement on that side of the ball.

  962. 962 BobSmith77 said at 6:09 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    – Nobody of significance with a major injury
    – More good than bad today even from Marcus Smith II
    – Barkley hopefully cementing a place on the roster over Tebow

    Friend was at the game today and saw at least a dozen authentic Tebow #11 Eagles jerseys. Supposedly has been the best selling Eagles jersey since they acquired him too.

    Still want to get more insight into the mind of the Eagles’ fan who drops at least $99.95 on the Tebow jersey.

  963. 963 Media Mike said at 6:10 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    They also believe that the Earth is only 6000 years old as well.

  964. 964 BobSmith77 said at 6:14 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That is unduly harsh. I just don’t get why people would spend that kind of money on a guy who is making 50% at best to even make the team.

  965. 965 Media Mike said at 6:14 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    “Unduly harsh” is my milieu.

  966. 966 anon said at 6:11 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    saw lots of gators fans there too

  967. 967 Media Mike said at 6:11 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Fools. They should have been hanging at the strip club with Uncle Luke and all of the fans of The U instead.

  968. 968 BobSmith77 said at 6:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    As for Marcus Smith II, just look at his arm muscle size and definition vs the other Eagles’ LBs including Goode. It is a really pronounced difference even for a guy who has supposedly added 10 pounds of muscle, there is almost no definition in his upper arm.

    Twice today to tried a basic bull rush on the T only to be deflected harmlessly outside or grappled & enveloped.

    Few other plays too where he easily suckered and blew lane assignments or outside contain.

    Eagles desperately need for him to pick up for some of the slack with Cole gone and I still saw a guy today who did make a few plays but also showed limited awareness & lack of strength or passing rushing technique too.

    If he is a meaningful contributor this year and an effective pass rusher by the end of the season, the Eagles coaching staff deserves a lot of credit.

  969. 969 Media Mike said at 6:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I still love his potential, but he’s the classic example of why you don’t reach on a 2nd round talent in the first round. The guy was done no favors by being placed into a draft status that has higher performance demands.

    I’m still optimistic he works his way into a good OLB.

  970. 970 BobSmith77 said at 6:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Too early yet to tell but for a guy who is supposed to be notably stronger it certainly did show up in the broadcast or in his play.

  971. 971 BobSmith77 said at 6:31 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    You can see some of the raw athletic ability but yeah he still stirkes me as a guy who has a long way to go before being anything than a situational player.

  972. 972 Jarock said at 6:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I was happy with how he played the run with the exception of getting totally fooled on the R/O by Bennett. Also thought he flashed in pass coverage. Needs to get nastier and more instinctive when trying to pass rush.

  973. 973 BobSmith77 said at 6:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Agreed on the pass rush thing. Decide before the snap and just go with it. There are times he seems to not be sure what pass rushing move he wants to execute especially if it is uncertain that will be a pass.

  974. 974 Jarock said at 6:31 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Wouldn’t mind seeing Braman play vs. the ones and twos in the next few games. Love his violent approach to the game, but not convinced he’s athletic or strong enough to do the job against starters.

  975. 975 Mitchell said at 6:33 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    To MSIIs credit, he did use 2 spin moves today. The first of which won’t be mistaken for Freeny but was pretty quick, unfortunately he ended up tripping at the end. The second spin was a bit better, he used a speed rush to get the LT going to the outside and then spun back in. Got a little pressure on the qb and it may have been a sack of it wasn’t a quick throw. The only truly negative thing, as mentioned elsewhere was getting fooled by the option, however, I have seen him blow that play up in college. He wasn’t as agressive as he needed to be and I pray he develops more of a nasty streak.

  976. 976 wee2424 said at 6:46 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    You saw exactly what I saw. Good moments in coverage and against the run but I did not initially like what I saw while rushing the passer.

    I will say this, maybe I’m wrong but he did seem to play more then almost anyone else on D and it was well over 100 on the field. On top of that he was rushing the passer, shooting the run, and covering TE’s 20 or so yards downfield. He was asked to do more then anyone else on D and I think he was thoroughly exhausted.

    I think you are making to much out of his physical appearance. He naturally is taller and has longer arms so his muscles are not as bunched as say BG or Barwin. Aldon Smith has roughly the same frame so he doesn’t look as strong as he really is. When I saw him on NFL network in regular street clothes I was shocked, he looked more like a big WR. Size isn’t always strength. I do think Smith has enough strength now.

    From what I could see the issue seemed to be technique and exhaustion which leads to a lack of technique.

    Rushing then passer in a way is like pitching. You have to set the T up.

    I think he will look better in regular season because BG will be bull rushing the T alot, and then a fresh Smith will come in with the speed and spin moves.

    I was very impressed regarding his coverage and run stopping. I initially was very disappointed in his pass rush untill I really thought about it.

    There were times where he did have an effective bull rush and got pressure but it was hard to see because the backfield was crowded and it was on the side of the field opposite of the camera. The times he didn’t look good it was more in the open and you could clearly see. It was one of those things were it was just to easy to see the bad and just physically hard on your eyes to see the good.

    Again, complete exhaustion had alot to do with it I believe.

  977. 977 BobSmith77 said at 6:34 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    So much attention on the Comcast post-game about Tebow. Going to continue to be the case all preseason too.

    So much wasted air time on a non-factor.

  978. 978 Jarock said at 6:36 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I respect Tim for his faith. I respect him for his work ethic. Doesn’t change the fact that he’s a mediocre to poor talent at best who is unlikely to ever start another game at QB. Move on.

  979. 979 Greg Richards said at 6:37 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Okay, post Preseason Game 1 projected 53-man roster:

    QB(3): 7 Bradford|3 Sanchez|2 Barkley
    Comments: I don’t particularly like either Barkley or Tebow but I assume they’ll keep 3 QBs and push come to shove I go with the better pure QB and not some guy that can only do well in a specialty package.

    RB(3): 29 Murray|24 Mathews|43 Sproles
    Comments: Kelly seems to prefer keeping 3 RBs and 4 TEs when constructing a roster. He kept Igwenagu initially in 2013 and Burton last year. Many thought that Josey or Tucker would stick as a 4th RB last preseason as it didn’t happen. With both Barner and Mostert showing the ability to contribute, we should be able to keep one of them on the PS.

    WR(6): 17 Agholor|13 Huff|81 Matthews(slot)|14 Cooper|16 Ajirotutu|19 Austin(slot)
    Comments: Outside shot that Bailey or one of the other WRs beats out Cooper but regardless of what one thinks of him as a receiver he is a pretty good STs player. Possible also they only go with 5 WRs on the 53-man roster but I doubt it.

    TE(4): 87 Celek|86 Ertz|47 Burton|83 Tomlinson
    Comments: Again, I think Kelly would like to keep 4 TEs and Tomlinson is coming on. They need to develop a blocking TE behind Celek. I don’t think Tomlinson would go unclaimed if we tried to move him to the PS.

    OL(8): 71 Peters|76 Barbre|62 Kelce|66 Gardner|65 Johnson|79 Moffitt|64 Tobin|61 Vandervelde
    Comments: There are 4 contenders for the RG position and that tells me that the 3 who don’t win the starting job are the most likely reserves. Even with only 8 OL, they have flexibility as Barbre can play any position except C, Moffitt can play RG or C, Vandervelde is getting tried at RG and has experience at LG and C, and Tobin, while better on the left side, has practiced at all 4 non-center positions. Ideally, you’d have a 9th developmental lineman that strongly pushes for a roster spot but as of now there are other players I like better for our 53 and hope we can get guys like Bunche and Boyko on the PS.

    DL(7): 91 Cox|96 Logan|72 Thornton|93 Bair|94 Allen|75 Curry|97 Hart
    Comments: Possible they only go with 6 here but Curry could contribute at OLB too so I think they go heavy at this position.

    LB(9): 55 Graham|50 Alonso|95 Kendricks|98 Barwin|90 Smith|59 Ryans|52 Jones|56 Braman|58 Hicks
    Comments: Acho could push for a 10th spot but hard to keep that many considering needs at other positions.

    CB(5): 31 Maxwell|23 Carroll|32 Rowe|38 Biggers|37 Watkins
    Comments: Tough call at the 5th spot here. Watkins got the start to day which tells me the coaching staff has hopes for him. While his tackling was rough, he did well in coverage. In the end I think his versatility gives him the edge over Rice.

    S(5): 26 Thurmond|27 Jenkins|42 Maragos|33 Prosinski|30 Reynolds
    Comments: I think it is close to a lock that Maragos and Prosinski make the team due to special teams prowess. They will be part of the 45-man gameday roster so the 5th S spot is developmental if they decide to keep one. If you suffered an injury at S during a game, Maragos or Prosinski may come in but it is also possible they shift Biggers or Watkins there. Considering Wolff’s injury, Reynolds and Couplin will probably battle it out. They could easily decide to keep only 4 safeties and keep another player at a different position such as Rice at CB.

    ST: 46 Dorenbos|1 Parkey|8 Jones
    Comments: Hopefully Parkey finds his groove.

  980. 980 Media Mike said at 6:41 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Strong work. I don’t 100% agree because I think you need to keep a 9th o-lineman due to the lack of quality of anybody not named Peters, Johnson, and/or Kelce in that group.

    I’d cut Bair. Especially because Cox and Logan are going to be playing a ton of snaps.

    Also, if Cooper isn’t going to start, why keep him on the roster? He’s overpaid as is, so paying him that contract to ride pine is kind of a waste. I’d love to see him cut.

    And thank you for cutting Barner. He played well today, but I don’t want him on the team.

  981. 981 Jarock said at 6:47 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    While I wouldn’t mind seeing Cooper cut, it ain’t my money. Don’t care if he’s a starter or backup. Would rather see Huff, Agholor and Matthews get most of the snaps, but sounds like they plan on rotating receivers.

    I’d consider keeping Barner if we didn’t already have Sproles and I didn’t think Mostert has the higher upside.

  982. 982 Jarock said at 6:43 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Can’t really argue much.

    RB – Would like to see Mostert as the higher upside guy on the PS.
    LB – Acho outplayed Hicks by a mile, but given that Hicks is a 3rd rounder, he probably makes it regardless.
    CB – No way Watkins doesn’t make the team barring him playing like complete garbage the rest of the offseason. He’s still the favorite to be the new nickel. Biggqars actually had a better game, but I don’t trust him.

  983. 983 Media Mike said at 6:46 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I think we got a look at why a lot of folks considered Hicks a 5th rounder.

  984. 984 Jarock said at 6:50 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yeah, really wasn’t happy with that pick. Also, consider it further proof that the staff is planning on moving ahead without Kendricks.

  985. 985 FairOaks said at 7:31 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I’m guessing Hicks is more of a Ryans replacement, which probably won’t happen until 2017. Alonso though may be the Kendricks replacement.

  986. 986 Jarock said at 7:33 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    With Alonso, Hicks, and Ryans all signed next season, I’d consider it a miracle for the Eagles to resign Kendricks.

  987. 987 FairOaks said at 7:40 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Could be, but Alonso and Hicks are being paid chump change the next 2-3 years and Ryans isn’t too bad a contract. And the cap will be going up. They could pay Kendricks a decent amount or use the money on other positions. It may well depend on how well the group plays this year.

  988. 988 HazletonEagle said at 6:57 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Objectively, I think we should all say Tebow has improved as a thrower. And considering what he is – a backup- he looks like hed be ok considering he has about 2 years of rust to knock off. I mean, really, all that in mind, he pretty decent today.
    Biggest flaw was that he held the ball too long. And, the run game went to crap with him in probably having a lot to do with him making the wrong reads on keeping, or handing it off.
    Those things can improve with more playing time.
    Problem for him is, Barkley may have finally had the lightbulb go on. He looked 10x better than he ever has in an eagles uniform. The timing probably wont work for Tim. Hes not as good right now.

  989. 989 Media Mike said at 6:58 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Tebow, although I agree the throwing motion has improved, still takes too long to figure out what’s going on when his first read isn’t there.

    Also, a rating of 68 for the game still kind of sucks.

  990. 990 OregonDucker said at 7:14 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Chip mentioned that on several occasions Eagles WRs ran the wrong routes for Tebow. The OL was very poor also when he was in the game. I’m not a Tebow apologist by any means, but we need to see him in games where his teammates play better.

  991. 991 Jarock said at 7:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I got that feeling too, but I wasn’t happy with his approach late in the game either. OL was getting trashed and he was holding the ball and trying to extend plays. Not smart at all.

  992. 992 Media Mike said at 7:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    That is true, think that’ll happen vs. the Ravens?

  993. 993 Jarock said at 7:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I somehow doubt our OL depth improves πŸ˜›

    Making me miss the days of Andy Reid drafting two to three OL every year.

  994. 994 OregonDucker said at 7:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I believe some of those OL and WR will be cut. There is really no excuse for some of the poor play I saw.

    My guess is that Chip will start Tebow after Sanchize so that he has a more talented team around him. No excuses after the next couple of games.

  995. 995 Jarock said at 7:20 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Rough on Matt, but probably the only way to get an honest evaluation of both guys.

  996. 996 Media Mike said at 7:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I’ll be shocked if Tebow looks any better with a higher level of teammate.

  997. 997 OregonDucker said at 7:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    You might see Barkley shopped to the Jets or another team next week while his stock is high. I think that would be a mistake to do, but nothing would surprise me during preseason.

  998. 998 Media Mike said at 7:22 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Not a Fitzy guy?

  999. 999 OregonDucker said at 7:24 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He’s always at the alter but never ties the knot. Not a Fitzy guy.

  1000. 1000 Jarock said at 7:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    He had that one good run early with the Bills and hasn’t done shit since. Actually thought he might be decent at one point.

  1001. 1001 Jarock said at 7:23 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I’d be shocked if even the Jets are stupid enough to spend anything on Barkley at this point. Still, we can hope.

  1002. 1002 anon said at 7:23 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    he could start on the jets or at least compete, same for texans

  1003. 1003 FairOaks said at 7:21 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Very true. But after watching today, while he can avoid the first pass rusher, I think if he starts scrambling it’s a miracle if it’s not a sack. He doesn’t have the speed to get away from the rushers really and his release is so slow he will rarely have time to even throw it away. Looked like he was trying to pass on the run today but that is when old habits come back, holds the ball low, and takes forever. He was sacked before he could even get into a throwing motion. If he can’t scramble effectively, then you better be a good pocket passer. And while improved, I don’t think he is all that close. The planned runs could be fun, and he looked reasonable on short passes, but I still can’t see him being worth a roster spot.

  1004. 1004 OregonDucker said at 7:29 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    With two or more OL missing their blocks and WR running the wrong routes, Tebow never had a chance.

    I agree that more zone reads or packaged plays would highlight his strengths. But he can’t be a pocket passer when there is no pocket, except one formed by the DL coming to kill him.

  1005. 1005 anon said at 7:47 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    he made some poor decisions on zone reads, but agree

  1006. 1006 FairOaks said at 7:47 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yes, tonight wasn’t a great test for him as a pocket passer. I think you’re right that he will follow Sanchez next game to get a better comparison with Barkley.

  1007. 1007 Jarock said at 7:00 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Biggest thing Tim has over Matt is a higher upside, and that’s not enough for me. Keep Barkley and Tim can go back to being a commentator.

  1008. 1008 Media Mike said at 7:02 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Does he? I don’t know if you can improve on slow eyes and an inability to make reads. Tebow’s default to his first read being covered is still stupid running around with his eyes not downfield. I can’t have that on an NFL field.

  1009. 1009 Jarock said at 7:04 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    While I tend to agree, it was hard to tell late in today’s game. He simply wasn’t given time to even try to make it to his 2nd read, let alone beyond. As far as upside, his arm is stronger and while you probably don’t care, he’s a much better athlete.

  1010. 1010 Media Mike said at 7:06 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    You’re right, “athletic” is just about the least important trait I look for in a QB.

  1011. 1011 anon said at 7:04 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    media coverage is terrible while he’s here

  1012. 1012 HazletonEagle said at 7:04 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    eh…If Barkley can keep up his level of play like it was today, Tim doesnt have higher upside. Tim probably wont ever conduct an offense that smoothly.
    He has a ways to go to be as good as Barkley- who is a backup- was tonight.
    Tims obviously not a young rookie anymore. Hes close to what hes gonna be.
    I see his ceiling as a decent backup for this team. Nothing more. Im not seeing all the potential.
    Question to be answered was whether or not this was an anomaly for Barkley.
    If Barkley regresses next game, its game on again.

  1013. 1013 Jarock said at 7:07 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Problem with Barkley is I’m pretty convinced that what you see is about as good as it’s ever going to get. He was ok today, but I still wouldn’t want him starting. Hell, I really don’t want Sanchise starting either. Neither is good enough imho to be a quality NFL starter. Sanchise is closer, simply because he’s got a better arm, but Sanchise is what he is too. A mistake prone guy who lacks the consistency to be a quality NFL starter.

  1014. 1014 HazletonEagle said at 7:11 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Dude, I call them Shamchez (because he fooled a lot of people with some stats last year even though he sucked), and Barfley because he makes you want to barf. I hate them both.
    We are doomed if either of them have to start any extended period of time.
    I didnt think Barfley was ever going to get better than he was though, and today he did. So yeah, this is probably his ceiling. But, today, he was actually better than Shamchez. By quite a lot.
    Sanchez played like his typical self. He will keep that up. If Barkley keeps this up though, then Barkley is actually better.

  1015. 1015 Jarock said at 7:13 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Still didn’t see a single stick throw from Barkley. He had one really good throw against tight coverage, but it was still more of a touch pass than a drive throw. Sanchez was awful today. Missed a ton of wide open receivers. I know it’s fashionable to bash Foles now, but I desperately wanted him back late last season.

  1016. 1016 anon said at 7:18 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    sanchize had a bad throwing day, but he made the right reads, got rid of the ball

  1017. 1017 Jarock said at 7:19 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    If he narrowly missed well covered guys, I’d forgive him. He missed wide open receiver after wide open receiver. That was AWFUL.

  1018. 1018 Jarock said at 7:34 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Anybody else wish it had been Bennet running around as our 3rd QB instead of Tebow?

  1019. 1019 FairOaks said at 7:41 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yes, although I think he got picked twice by Ed Reynolds, so…

  1020. 1020 Jarock said at 7:43 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Upside πŸ™‚

    Yeah, he made mistakes and still looked more like a potential starting QB than either Barkley or Tebow.

  1021. 1021 OregonDucker said at 7:53 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    In my opinion, we have much better depth on D than O. I thought our 2nd – 3rd string D did very well. Our O, on the other hand, had poor OL and WR play and iffy RB play. I bet we pick up some O players next week to replace some of our failures.

  1022. 1022 Jarock said at 8:03 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    I’m not arguing with your assessment of our depth, but finding guys off the street who are better at this point will be tough. They also have to fight the learning curve coming in, which as we saw with Ed Reynolds last season, is steep.

  1023. 1023 anon said at 8:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    there’s one guy who is on the street that could help out

  1024. 1024 Jarock said at 8:15 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Yep, and unfortunately, it’ll never happen πŸ˜›

  1025. 1025 Jarock said at 8:25 PM on August 16th, 2015:

    Does anyone remember if it was Graff who MSII destroyed the other day in practice? Based on today’s tape, I’d say that explains a lot if it was.
