    Pantale sucks.

  2. 2 Rambler said at 7:14 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    He should not have a roster spot. Really hope he does not make it at the expense of someone with upside.

  3. 3 Cracker Ass Red said at 11:31 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I’d take Byron Marshall instead of a 4th TE. He has shown versatility. Catches the ball well, has some elusiveness, and power too.

  4. 4 Dave said at 7:15 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Marcus wants to make this team and play for Schwartz

  5. 5 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:15 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Everyone repeat after me. No injuries. No injuries. No injuries.

    Hufflepuff, ya need to sell the route.

  8. 8 Corry said at 7:24 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Was Tobin supposed to run around the DE like that? That whole play just didn’t look right.

  9. 9 GermanEagle said at 7:23 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Turner has to make this team.

  10. 10 Corry said at 7:24 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    WEll, at least it wasn’t Agholor this time.

  11. 11 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:24 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    So who gets the Na Brown award this year? Turner?

  12. 12 Dave said at 7:46 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Jalen Mills…stud in shorts, dud in pads.

    RE: Lane Johnson’s Status

    According to Sec. 2 of the NFL’s policy on PED, a player is informed of a suspension only after both the player’s “A” and “B” specimens have been tested.

    Only after the test of the “B” specimen comes back positive is the player notified of his suspension.

    At that point, the appeal process begins.
    https://nflpaweb.blob.core.windows.net/media/Default/PDFs/Player%20Development/2015%20Policy%20on%20Performance-Enhancing%20Substances.pdf

    To recap, on 8/9/16, NFL.com reported that Lane Johnson faced a 10 game suspension.
    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2016/08/09/confusion-reigns-regarding-lane-johnson-situation/

    All of which indicates, Johnson’s appeal is pending — not his “B” specimen test.

    Welcome back good sir! Glad to have you!

  15. 15 Corry said at 7:29 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    First of all, welcome back AC. i haven’t seen you posting in some time.

    The report of Johnson failing his “A” specimen test seemed like it was yet another example of the NFL not protecting the confidentiality of the players.

  16. 16 SteveH said at 7:29 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    let some steam off AC, you sound a little tense with that clowns comment. Welcome back.

  17. 17 GermanEagle said at 7:33 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Willkommen zurΓΌck!

  18. 18 Dave said at 7:50 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    As a person who deals with laboratories all the time (albeit soil and groundwater media), I’m not sure what the holdup is with the B sample. The NFL has deep pockets, there should be no reason the lab needs a month to run a sample. Maybe somebody that knows more about blood analysis can chime in with a reason why the test cannot be run in a day. Edit, or urine testing as that’s what I assume they sampled.

  19. 19 Ark87 said at 7:58 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    ACV!!!! Welcome back! Your sanity has been sorely missed!

  20. 20 FairOaks said at 8:00 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I’ve seen him upvote an occasional post, so he’s been lurking sometimes at least. But yes, great to have him back posting. He just must have some sanity left; ignores the NFL mostly until the season actually starts.

  21. 21 Insomniac said at 10:25 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I know I’m late but welcome back. We all missed you.

  22. 22 SteveH said at 7:31 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    mmm, Jacorey Shepard was our presumptive starter at nickle when we traded away Boykin last year.

  23. 23 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:32 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Great throw for that TD. Corner lost one step, but QB nailed that. Hats off. Good play, Jets.

  24. 24 GermanEagle said at 7:34 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Great pass.

  25. 25 meteorologist said at 7:35 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Jacorey looked like he timed his swat perfectly even tho he was beat. And then got another swat in. Nice effort after he was beaten

  26. 26 GermanEagle said at 7:37 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Scroll down to first comment please. Thanks.

  27. 27 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:37 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    You may be onto something.

  28. 28 Aaron said at 7:37 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    great article tommy

  29. 29 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:37 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    O_o What the hell was that?

  30. 30 SteveH said at 7:38 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Was that fucking Andy Dick who Howie was talking to?

  31. 31 Aaron said at 7:39 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    tone it down francis

  32. 32 Bert's Bells said at 7:41 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Andy Dick was hilarious working with Dino Stamotopolous

  33. 33 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:40 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Reynolds sighting. The last one ever?

  34. 34 Corry said at 7:41 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    That was a horrible call.

  35. 35 GermanEagle said at 7:43 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Why?

  36. 36 Corry said at 7:44 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    The Unsportsmanlike conduct call for taunting? Because he didn’t really do anything.

  37. 37 SteveH said at 7:45 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    The guy he was “taunting” got up laughing and slapped him on the helmet, so probably not really taunting.

  38. 38 SteveH said at 7:41 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I love this Steven Means, I want him to make the team.

  39. 39 Crus57 said at 7:44 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Steven Means Business

  40. 40 SteveH said at 7:44 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    He really does, he has shown up in every PS game so far.

  41. 41 Dave said at 7:44 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Or at least trade bait for a pick or player

  42. 42 meteorologist said at 7:45 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Do we really have to choose between Smith and Means? Smith has convinced me this preseason also.

  43. 43 GermanEagle said at 7:45 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    This Means him making the team?! πŸ˜‰

  44. 44 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:48 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I don’t have audio. I see Mathews suited up. Has he actually been on the field?

  45. 45 meteorologist said at 7:49 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    He wasn’t suited up. Just a jersey. .

  46. 46 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:50 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Thanks. Had me worried there for a sec.

  47. 47 SteveH said at 7:48 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Why is this team slowly making me feel more confident about it… I don’t trust it.

  48. 48 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:50 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Because you’re obviously young and inexperienced.

  49. 49 Insomniac said at 10:24 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    preseason

  50. 50 meteorologist said at 7:48 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    That cut by Byron Marshall… I miss shady

  51. 51 meteorologist said at 7:49 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Receivers catching the ball. Unreal

  52. 52 meteorologist said at 7:50 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Maybe it’s the soft ball Daniel throws. Defenders having no trouble catching him either

  53. 53 RC5000 said at 7:52 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I was just gonna say that. It’s a part of it for sure.

  54. 54 Julescat said at 8:08 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    ouch

  55. 55 Dave said at 7:51 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Can we trade Daniels to the Vikings

  56. 56 RC5000 said at 7:51 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Turner is great possession WR but he doesn’t have speed or much YAC ability.

  57. 57 Crus57 said at 7:52 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Hints of Jason Avant about him

  58. 58 Corry said at 7:52 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I was just typing in that he’s Jason Avant II.

  59. 59 SteveH said at 7:52 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    It’s a fair comparison, he seems to have great hands.

  60. 60 Dave said at 7:53 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Or Greg Lewis

  61. 61 meteorologist said at 7:54 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Yeah maybe a bit too thin for avant

  62. 62 Jarock said at 10:59 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    GLew was faster. Not much faster, but yeah, he could outrun Turner.

  63. 63 Crus57 said at 7:53 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    also has little idea what to do when receiving punts/KOs, despite the hands

  64. 64 Jarock said at 10:59 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Too small to be Avant. I’d vote for Wayne Chrebet.

  65. 65 BobSmith77 said at 7:54 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Any idea how many 4-WR sets the Chiefs’ ran last year?

  66. 66 SteveH said at 7:52 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Shittu has talent but he’s caught up in the numbers game at DT. Wonder if we can sneak him onto the PS.

  67. 67 BobSmith77 said at 7:53 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Can they just change Daniel’s number to ’00?’

  68. 68 Nick C said at 7:53 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Have we run the ball at all?

  69. 69 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:55 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Yes, 3 times for 7 yards. AR would be proud.

  70. 70 Dragon_Eagle said at 7:56 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Correction, 4 times for 7 yards. Keep firing.

  71. 71 Corry said at 7:58 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    The line is getting 0 push in the run game.

  72. 72 BobSmith77 said at 8:20 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Patented 20 run/80 pass split that Reid would approach in his more extreme games.

  73. 73 Jarock said at 11:00 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Not knocking Pederson for that this game. Reserve OL got zero push all game long.

  74. 74 Corry said at 8:00 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    If Barrett Jones makes the team, it’s a waste of a roster spot.

  75. 75 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:05 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I’m happier when our defense is on the field.

  76. 76 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:06 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    And I picked the perfect time to mention that and be reminded of the joys of the wide-9.

  77. 77 Dave said at 8:05 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Lol, Fletch

  78. 78 A_T_G said at 8:05 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Pretty sure the announcers have 35 players headed to the PS.

  79. 79 truehaynes said at 8:06 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    hahahha fletch

  80. 80 SteveH said at 8:08 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    TURNER!!!!!

  81. 81 Dave said at 8:09 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Possession receiver my ass!

  82. 82 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:08 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Wow! Where did that come from?

  83. 83 A_T_G said at 8:09 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Wow, trust your read and drive the RB into the ground, 46.

  84. 84 Corry said at 8:09 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Well that should help Turner.

  85. 85 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:09 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Welcome to the team, Paul.

  86. 86 Nick C said at 8:09 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Put that slow kid on the team!

  87. 87 A_T_G said at 8:10 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    So, does this mean Turner makes the team and Media Mike hates him forevermore?

  88. 88 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:13 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    No. To be fair to MM, I suspect his biggest issue with the Barners of the world is ball security. I don’t recall Turner having an issue there.

    Litmus test for my theory: Did MM hate Reno Mahe?

  89. 89 A_T_G said at 8:18 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    No, you are right. MM’s beef is that Barner beat out better guys. The PR touchdown was only an excuse to keep him.

  90. 90 BlindChow said at 8:18 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    * “better” guys

  91. 91 Jarock said at 11:02 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Barner >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Mahe

  92. 92 Crus57 said at 8:10 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Love that dip as he crossed the goal line, like it was the end of the 100m sprint

  93. 93 Dave said at 8:12 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Paul “the Burner” Turner

  94. 94 A_T_G said at 8:12 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Frank Reich on the sidelines, “Hey, I got some things to figure out over here. Thanks a lot, Fipp. Show off.”

  95. 95 A_T_G said at 8:16 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Remember all those times we lamented, “if only Avant was a little faster, not fast, just a little faster…” I think we might get to find out.

  96. 96 meteorologist said at 8:20 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Even Avant might have been able to take that to the house

  97. 97 SteveH said at 8:19 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    If Turner takes another one to the house tonight I’m going to start flipping out like we just won the super bowl.

  98. 98 A_T_G said at 8:20 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Worst historical fact for Turner: Josey and Mostert looked really good in the last two game 4s.

    Best fact for Turner: Chip is in SF.

  99. 99 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:22 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Nah, best fact for Paul: Our WRs, in general, suck.

    Best fact for the Eagles and their fans: Chip is in SF.

  100. 100 BobSmith77 said at 8:23 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Still think Chip is going to be more popular come the end of the season in SF than their GM especially if they can win 6 games.

  101. 101 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:26 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I could see that public wise, but I’d bet that Chip pisses of more people internally at SF.

  102. 102 CrackSammich said at 10:22 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    We had very good backup OL the past few years (relative to their 3rd and 4th string competition, anyway). It made a lot of our backup RBs look like studs. Media Mike won’t admit it, but neither one of those stars in hiding has done a damn thing since.

    Turner is doing this all on his own.

  103. 103 SteveH said at 8:23 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Means again. How can he possibly not make the team, he’s done it consistently for 4 games now.

  104. 104 meteorologist said at 8:25 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Special teams. Not like he’d get a chance to do what he’s doing in the regular season. But I want him to make it

  105. 105 GermanEagle said at 8:23 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Dear football God

    Please let Sammy Sleeves be healthy all season long so we won’t have to see Chase Daniel ever on the football field. Thanks.

    Amen.

  106. 106 BobSmith77 said at 8:25 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    With the rosaries in hand in front of pictures of multiple saints and lighting about 800 prayer candles

  107. 107 Jarock said at 11:05 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Yeah, gl w/that. Sleeves . . . healthy . . . . for an entire season????

    Maybe if you sacrifice your entire family to the football god πŸ˜›

  108. 108 SteveH said at 8:24 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Means again. Come on now.

  109. 109 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:25 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    There can only be one.

    The decision comes down to Means Vs. Turner, who do you take?

  110. 110 A_T_G said at 8:26 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Jerk…

  111. 111 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:27 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Not an option, but thank you for playing.

  112. 112 BobSmith77 said at 8:29 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I thought ‘C – none of the above’ was always a choice in multiple choice?

  113. 113 Crus57 said at 8:26 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Turner. We have competent DEs already, not so much WRs

  114. 114 meteorologist said at 8:28 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Don’t need em. Run offense thru TEs

  115. 115 RC5000 said at 8:28 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    We have Burton.

  116. 116 A_T_G said at 8:30 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Yeah, but some of our receivers remind me of Edward Scissorhands.

  117. 117 Rambler said at 8:26 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Means. Pass rush is that valuable.

  118. 118 BobSmith77 said at 8:26 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Wasn’t that a crappy 80s comedy with Tom Hanks?

  119. 119 SteveH said at 8:26 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Cut Daniels. lol.

  120. 120 RC5000 said at 8:27 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Well I already had them keeping Means. Lane is who screws it up.

  121. 121 SteveH said at 8:29 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Is it my imagination or was Peterson kinda irritated during that interview with spuds. He wasn’t engaged at all with the conversation.

  122. 122 A_T_G said at 8:32 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Probably just flustered because it was the first time he didn’t have to make excuses for Reuben Randle.

  123. 123 BobSmith77 said at 8:36 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    One thing that did make me laugh today was Spadaro on CBS 3 this morning talking about the Eagles and talking about Agholor in such glowing terms.

    He was ecstatic about Turner though as a key guy to watch tonight. I hope he didn’t have a seizure tonight on Turner’s return TD.

  124. 124 BobSmith77 said at 8:38 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    https://twitter.com/EaglesInsider – No in-game tweets so far tonight . . .

  125. 125 daveH said at 10:35 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    That confirms my growing hate for Ags. .bust. .i like Huff better than Ags

  126. 126 Aaron said at 8:37 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    how has marcus smith played

  127. 127 RC5000 said at 8:41 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    He was really good, Had a huge tackle for loss. Very disruptive.

  128. 128 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:38 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    3 rush yards during the 1st half.

    Please, please, please, Dougie, I’m a begging. Don’t emulate AR in this way. Run the damn ball!!!!!

  129. 129 meteorologist said at 8:41 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    No I want to see MBT!!!

  130. 130 meteorologist said at 8:41 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    See what happens when we run?

  131. 131 BobSmith77 said at 8:42 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    http://www.footballdb.com/games/boxscore.html?gid=2009101812

    Still the classic Eagles’ Reid game for me in terms of pass, pass, pass instead of simply running the ball.

  132. 132 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:45 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    That one. The Bengals tie. And, for me, the worst ever – the Winston Justice vs. the Giants game. Buck is ripping off 6 ypc and AR calls pass, pass, pass. He must’ve been pissed at Donovan that night. Only explanation.

  133. 133 BobSmith77 said at 8:48 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Giants’ game is a good one too. I just had moved back to the Philly area from SF and remembering watching McNabb absorb a beating in that game.

    He got sacked 6 times in the box score but I bet he got hit at least another dozen times and there were some real shots in there. Definitely one of McNabb’s underappreciated qualities was his durability and toughness.

    One of the closest times I ever remember Didinger losing his calm, reasoned persona in the post-game and just ripping into Reid including his ‘I just don’t get it’ which is about as critical he’ll get.

  134. 134 daveH said at 10:33 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I partially described the superbbowl game also

    Great post ..albeit sad .. bet AR had DMac throw 55 times

  137. 137 The original AG said at 9:15 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    He ran more in the previous games. I’m hoping it’s because he wants a longer look at Turner, and getting DGB and Huff some work to get more comfortable in the offense.

    Bethel-Thompson over Daniels!!

  141. 141 A_T_G said at 8:46 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    That would certainly put everyone on notice.

  142. 142 Corry said at 8:46 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I’m kind of surprised Means is still on the field.

  143. 143 SteveH said at 8:47 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Cmon Rowe… Damn, should have been a pick.

  144. 144 SteveH said at 8:47 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Damn Means plays with so much power, just drives his man back.

  145. 145 BobSmith77 said at 8:50 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I miss the classic power back especially on an extended sweep or pull.

  146. 146 GermanEagle said at 8:49 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    At least Rowe is a good tackler!

  147. 147 SteveH said at 8:49 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Covert to safety.

  148. 148 RC5000 said at 8:54 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    What’s he gonna be 4th safety? You won’t even remember him.

  149. 149 BlindChow said at 8:49 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Just move Rowe to safety already.

  150. 150 RC5000 said at 8:53 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    We don’t really need him at safety.

  151. 151 RC5000 said at 8:50 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Rowe seems like a head case right now but physical tools are still there vs 3rd – 4th stringers. Feel bad for him.

  152. 152 A_T_G said at 8:51 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    So frustrating to watch.

  153. 153 Jarock said at 11:11 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Playing against guys with little chance of making the team, Rowe ended up being the guy getting targeted. That’s a nutshell of why he should be cut based on this year alone. Too bad, cause you can see the talent.

  154. 154 Nick C said at 8:50 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I know Watkins has established himself as the third safety, but how can the staff not realize Rowe is better suited as a safety?

  155. 155 RC5000 said at 9:28 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Probably because they have guys named Jenkins and McLeod and they were hoping he’d win a corner spot. They have Countess at safety too.

  156. 156 SteveH said at 8:50 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Turner with the fake out, very nice.

  157. 157 A_T_G said at 8:53 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Did that Jet tackle Turner while he was faking, or did Turner engage to block?

    Tackle lol

  159. 159 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:54 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    OK. Who’s the surprise cut this season? I mean surprise. Turner & Means – that would be disappointing, but not a huge surprise.

    Man looks like I wasn’t the only one who missed the game. Turner is making the team for sure.

  237. 237 Greg Richards said at 10:24 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Final 53-man roster prediction:

    QB(3): Bradford|Daniel|Wentz
    RB(4): Mathews|Sproles|Barner|Smallwood
    WR(5): Matthews|Agholor|Green-Beckham|Huff|Turner
    TE(3): Ertz|Celek|Burton
    OL(10): Peters|Barbre|Kelce|Brooks|Johnson|Tobin|Seumalo|Wisniewski|Gordon|Vaitai

    DE(6): Barwin|Graham|Curry|Smith|Means|Braman
    DT(5): Cox|Logan|Allen|Hart|Vaeao
    LB(5): Kendricks|Hicks|Bradham|Goode|Tulloch
    CB(5): McKelvin|Carroll|Brooks|Mills|Rowe
    S(4): Jenkins|McLeod|Watkins|Maragos

    ST(3): Dorenbos|Sturgis|Jones

    Comments: This assumes Lane Johnson is not suspended before Week 1.

    I don’t think this will be the final roster but is my projection for initial cuts assuming no trades are made. Think WR, #4 TE/FB, OL, LB, and CB could be addressed with waiver claims or veteran FAs. Players that I could see conceivably moved:

    Marcus Smith/Steven Means – Both are in my top 53 but could be moved to shore up other positions.

    Beau Allen/Taylor Hart – All of the DTs have looked good in preseason including Vaeao and Shittu. Have to wonder how much of that is scheme related vs. talent. Again, moving one of these guys would be more about upgrading another position than the player themselves.

    Eric Rowe – I do not believe he gets cut. With our relative lack of depth at the position, it probably wouldn’t be wise. It’s pretty clear he’s not a scheme fit for this D though. If you could get a better fit at CB along with a draft pick for him, it’s worth considering.

    Ed Reynolds – I doubt a team would trade for him, but he’s serviceable.

    Cody Parkey – 2014 Pro Bowler, chance a team would send a future 7th our way.

  238. 238 Insomniac said at 10:29 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I believe we need one more backup OLB?

  239. 239 Greg Richards said at 10:37 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    They could add one or they could keep a few LBs on the PS, including possibly one of those 2-year vets you’re allowed to have now. Smith/Means/Braman will fill some of the ST duties typically given to LBs.

  240. 240 anon said at 10:32 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    5 WRs and 3 TEs?

  241. 241 Greg Richards said at 10:36 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Initially. Think a 4th TE is added, either a waiver claim, or a veteran FA is added before season starts or after Week 1 when vets salaries aren’t guaranteed for the year.

  242. 242 Anders said at 2:31 AM on September 2nd, 2016:

    There is no 4th TE worth it on the roster

  243. 243 Rambler said at 10:36 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I am down with this roster. Can you explain why Rowe is not a scheme fit though? He is a big physical corner, doesn’t Schwartz want that for press coverage?

  244. 244 Greg Richards said at 10:40 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    From what I’ve seen of Schwartz’s scheme, while he does occasionally press, fluidity and the ability to mirror the route of the receiver is a more important attribute.

  245. 245 Jarock said at 11:27 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Also, Rowe has regressed. He’s not attacking routes in front of him and worse, he really didn’t play the deep ball well at all against the Jets. Just didn’t look comfortable or confident at all.

  246. 246 Anders said at 2:31 AM on September 2nd, 2016:

    Yep, it seems Schwartz still play man, but he plays off man coverage, similar to what JJ did here.

    The perfect CB for that is one there is fluid and can break on the ball and tackle. Asante Samuel type CB would be perfect except for the tackling part

  247. 247 meteorologist said at 10:37 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    CJ Smith??

  248. 248 Greg Richards said at 10:39 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Tough cut. Practice squad hopefully. You could keep him over say a Dillon Gordon. But I’d have Gordon being the casualty if we added a true #4 TE.

  249. 249 Jarock said at 11:38 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Gordon’s my “too much upside to risk sending to practice squad” guy. He didn’t have a particularly great game against the Jets. Neither did any of the oline for that matter. Still, I’d keep him over Vaitai at this point thanks to upside and position versatility.

  250. 250 RC5000 said at 10:40 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    That is what I just emailed to some friends exactly.

    3 QB – Bradford Wentz Daniel
    3 TE – Ertz Celek Burton
    feel that way though.
    5 WR – Matthews DGB Agholor Huff, Turner
    4 OG – Seumalo, Brooks, Wisniewski (C), Gordon (OT)
    1 C – Kelce
    5 OT – Peters, Barbre, Tobin, Vaitai, Lane Johnson
    1 K – Sturgis
    4 RB – Mathews, Sproles, Barner, Smallwood
    1 LS – Dorenbos
    26 total offense and LS

    6 DE – Barwin, Curry, Graham, Means, Smith, Braman
    5 DT – Cox, Logan, Allen, Hart, Vaeao
    5 LB – Kendricks, Hicks, Bradham, Goode, Tulloch
    6 CB – McKelvin, Carroll, Brooks, Rowe, Mills
    4 S – Jenkins, McLeod, Watkins, Maragos
    1 P – Jones

    27 total defense and STs

  251. 251 Greg Richards said at 10:44 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    You’re offense and LS category has 27 players since you included the K there. You have 54 total players.

    Not happening.

  254. 254 FairOaks said at 10:47 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    He has 53. He has 26 total defense and ST (since only Jones is there). He has “6 CB” but only lists 5.

  255. 255 Greg Richards said at 10:48 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I’m pretty sure he’s edited since my comment.

  256. 256 FairOaks said at 10:49 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Quite possible πŸ˜‰ I think his roster is exactly the same as yours. Probably matches my best guess, though it will be interesting to see Turner vs a TE4 and what the team wants to do (or finds on the waiver wire).

  257. 257 RC5000 said at 10:49 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    Don’t think so. I can’t find a difference from yours. I had some position numbers and totals wrong but it was always 53 names.

  258. 258 Greg Richards said at 10:55 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    I saw “6 CBs” and counted based off of that. If you only listed 5 as FairOaks said then that explains things.

    Yeah it’s cool now. I dropped Smith after the game and added Lane but I had forgotten to change 6 CBs until you pointed it out. Of course I’m not all that confident it’s right…

    Thought Gause might have played himself into the conversation today. Really, really need LB depth.

    Love the fact that Turner has caught everything. Not impressed with his speed or quicks. I would need to watch tape, but felt like he was constantly getting open on zone coverage, not beating people one on one.

    I want Rowe to make the team, but for all the people harping on cutting MSII, he’s had a much better preseason than Rowe. Playing against bad QB’s and mediocre WR’s he should have dominated. Instead he was the guy they were looking to make plays on.

    Really, really want the Eagles to hang onto Gordon as well. Love the athleticism and talent. If there’s a project worth hanging onto, he’s it.

    How did DGB and Dillon Gordon look?

  262. 262 Greg Richards said at 10:27 PM on September 1st, 2016:

    DGB had a couple of nice slant receptions. I know Dillon Gordon had one nice block on an outside run by Marshall. In general the backup OL didn’t do much in the run game.

    I saw Gordon give up a sack, well, kinda. he seemed to have the guy under control, but then the RB came up and chipped the DE. that more or less just pushed the DE inside of Gordon and gave him a free run at the QB. weird play.
    i still think Gordon has to handle that play, but its probably not something he was expected, or used to seeing.

    From what Eskin said tonight, he thinks Johnson starts next week at RT and possible a few games before the suspension kicks in.

    Spadaro did say that too.

    that means uphill battle to make team? i don’t understand that.

    Yeah I think they probably had one eye on the waiver wire. But they have to keep Turner now.

    Turner reminds me of Wayne Chrebet. He can only hope he’s as successful.
