The First Game of 2017 (Kinda)

Posted: August 10th, 2017 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 319 Comments »

Football is finally here. Not the real thing, but close enough. Starters will play very little or not at all. The goal is to have them shake off some rust and get a feel for contact to get them ready for the next couple of weeks.

The second half will belong to players who might only have a few weeks left with the Eagles or in pursuit of their NFL dreams. There are going to be some ugly moments in tonight’s game. The opener always feature plenty of sloppy play.

What do you want out of the preseason? The 2015 Eagles looked great and got expectations sky high. That led to a frustrating regular season and the firing of Chip Kelly. Other preseasons have had plenty of mediocre play, which creates all kinds of doubts with fans and the media. Those regular seasons were a mixed bag. I guess the point is this. No matter what happens tonight, take it with a grain of salt.

Preseason football is all about individual player evaluation. The plays are simple. The point isn’t for Jim Schwartz to show he’s designed a great blitz. That doesn’t matter in August. The point is to find out if Derek Barnett can get to the QB or if C.J. Smith can cover a receiver down the field. You do that by keeping the scheme as simple as you can.

I’m excited to see the WRs tonight. Agholor and Marcus Johnson are a couple I’m real curious about. I want to see how Greg Ward does. Can he make a run at the roster? It will be interesting to see the rookies and where they are at.

Can TE Billy Brown actually block? We won’t get an answer tonight, but will get a hint.

It sounds like Chance Warmack will start at RG. I’m looking forward to seeing him in action. Good college player. Mediocre pro. Can Jeff Stoutland get him on the right track? I want to see where Dillon Gordon is right now. Can he be the backup LT?

The Eagles need a backup DT or two to step up. They will get a ton of reps tonight. Let’s hope at least one takes advantage. Keep an eye on Destiny Vaeao and Gabe Wright.

LB depth is another area of real curiosity. I can’t wait to see Joe Walker in action. I’m also excited to see Steven Daniels. Is he healthy enough to really show what he can do? Rookie Nate Gerry has been getting good pub recently. Should be interesting to see how he does going against blockers.

Terrence Brooks and Corey Graham are the Safeties I’m excited to watch. They should play a lot. Brooks can do himself a world of good if he has a strong preseason.

CB. Give me some hope. Is that setting the bar too high or too low?

Games are very different from practice. There will be some players who we’re all down on that play much better in this setting. There is something about going against a guy on another team in a live setting that just brings out the best in some players. Could be Patrick Robinson or Shelton Gibson or some backup DL.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the first game can be overwhelming for some players, especially young guys. They want to do so well that when something goes wrong it just snowballs and they struggle most of the night. Nothing that happens in the opener is definitive. There are players who will shine tonight and then fade the next few weeks. There are guys who will struggle, but might end up making the team.

Most important of all…just stay healthy.

    EURO ENGLISH
    The European Union Commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications, rather than German, which was the other possibility.
    As part of the negotiations, the British government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five-year phased plan for what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for short).

    In the first year, “s” will be used instead of the soft “c”. Sertainly, sivil servants will reseive this news with joy. Also, the hard “c” will be replaced with “k”. Not only will this klear up konfusion, but typewriters kan have one less letter.

    There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome “ph” will be replaced by “f”. This will make words like “fotograf” 20 per sent shorter.

    In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be Expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible.

    Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent “e”s in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go.

    By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing “th” by “z” and “w” by ” v”.

    During ze fifz year, ze unesesary “o” kan be dropd from vords kontaining “ou”, and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.

    After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech ozer.

    Ze drem vil finali kum tru.

    Bradford, who?!

  20. 20 ChoTime said at 5:31 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    The 2015 preseason was bizarre. Their performance on both sides of the ball was so sharp, and they dominated so thoroughly, that I put aside my strong anti-Bradford evaluation and jumped on board as a Superbowl contender.

    Their results in the season were so disappointing and puzzling. It’s well known that pre-season records do not carry over to the regular season, but they were executing at a very high level. I’ve never seen a team have that much disparity in performance (not record, but performance) between the fake and the real seasons.

  21. 21 ColorSgt said at 6:26 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    When you run the same 5 plays all season teams start to adjust.

    See the Washington team under Steve Spurrier.

  23. 23 ChoTime said at 2:04 PM on August 11th, 2017:

    Yeah, the result was similar.

    Redskins 4-1: outscored opponents by 54
    Eagles 3-1: by 58

    Both with gimmicky offenses. Still, not a lot of data points for that kind of thing.

  25. 25 RC5000 said at 2:11 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    What’s more important for a quarterback than good vision? Wentz had PRK laser eye surgery earlier this offseason, which is a less invasive form of LASIK.

    “Recovery was about a week long. I was borderline blind to some degree for a couple days,” Wentz said during a recent sitdown with ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio.

    One of the benefits is Wentz no longer has to worry about a defender poking out one of his contacts, which has happened.

    “I knew I wanted to get this surgery when I could,” he said. “It’s been pretty life-changing, honestly.”

    Living out of market sucks, I’ve always had the NFL rewind so that I could watch film, bonus was being able to watch pre-season live, but I gave it up to buy the NFL sunday ticket

    And I am VERY tempted to make a bad ($100!!!!) decision.

  35. 35 Tumtum said at 7:21 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Don’t do it! You will be watching baseball by the 2nd quarter! I’m gonna watch every snap though. As usual, in OC MD for 2nd week of agust and get to catch the game. Next 3 though, no sir.

  36. 36 ChoTime said at 6:47 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Very interesting breakdown of the QBs last year and their success at various types of routes. Wentz excelled at a couple of routes, was average in a couple, and was awful in quite a few others. The sample size is not huge, of course, in just one season. Interestingly, his go routes were the longest in the league, but he hardly threw any.

    I think it’s really cool to see things broken down by route type like this. I hope they keep doing this every year. Geekalicious!

  37. 37 Tumtum said at 7:19 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Something to share with you boys & girls that I thought you’d appreciate.

    The offspring is off to college this fall. Going to the West Coast – clearly Seahawks territory. Told her she needs an Eagles jersey and definitely needs to channel her Philly attitude on 12/3 when the Eagles are visiting Seattle.

    So she asked me last week “What jersey?”I replied, “Well, I was thinking Wentz since he’s the one most likely to be on the team for a while and become a star.” She says, “Nah, Dad, I don’t want a Wentz jersey. I want a classic. Can I have a Dawkins jersey?”

    Almost shed a tear saying, “Of course, sweetheart.”

  51. 51 scratcherk said at 7:48 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    bravo sir, you’ve raised her right.

  52. 52 SteveH said at 7:53 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Well done. Well done.

  53. 53 SteveH said at 7:54 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    It’s ok to get excited now. 5 minutes to kickoff and I’m ready to run through a brick wall.

    more like a missed tackle but ill take it

  66. 66 SteveH said at 8:09 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Said he hit the ball with his helmet forcing the incompletion.

  67. 67 SteveH said at 8:09 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Wow Mills with 3 good plays to start the game.

  68. 68 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:09 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Mills played that very well

    That’s one of the clearest offsides in history lol. WTF is that guy doing?

  72. 72 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:13 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Extend Matthews please.

  73. 73 SteveH said at 8:13 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Mathews breaks tackle, gets first down.

    Side note, the Packers are not playing vanilla defense at all, blitzing a lot.

  74. 74 scratcherk said at 8:14 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    end around by agholar. goes nowhere.

  81. 81 SteveH said at 8:16 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    injury break.

    Anyone else curious why the Packers are throwing blitzes and things? We went very vanilla on D first possession… I thought it was sort of a handshake thing between teams that you’d play a vanilla D during these early PS games.

  82. 82 GENETiC-FREAK said at 8:17 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    No way man. Rookies will gain nothing from playing a vanilla D. Even vets. Gotta get these players in the groove.

  83. 83 SteveH said at 8:18 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Yeah I get that thinking, but that’s not typically how it goes is it?

  84. 84 GENETiC-FREAK said at 8:20 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    They mix in blitzes but it obviously not the full arsenal. Think we just used to seeing pre season game as vanilla compared to regular season games.

  85. 85 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:19 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I’m wondering if this is a bit of myth. Teams don’t gameplay for each other in the pre-season, but I certainly think they plan out working on certain things. Making sure they get to evaluate their players doing certain things and a variety of play calls.

  86. 86 SteveH said at 8:19 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Wow great play, Wentz to Mathews for first down.

  87. 87 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:20 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    If they didn’t see a run play coming with Gordon in at FB…

  88. 88 SteveH said at 8:20 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Someone got dumped in Wentz’s lap on the 4th down play, not sure which OL got shoved back.

  89. 89 scratcherk said at 8:21 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Matthews targetted alot

  90. 90 SteveH said at 8:21 PM on August 10th, 2017:

  94. 94 scratcherk said at 8:22 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    beautiful play! mack hollins for the TD!

  95. 95 Corry said at 8:22 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    …I’m really going to try to keep my expectations of Wentz in check but this is going to be tough after watching that drive. It wasn’t pretty but Wentz made plays when we needed them.

  96. 96 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:23 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Good luck with that.

  97. 97 SteveH said at 8:23 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Jesus christ he was money on that drive, but what about Mack Hollins? That’s a HELL of a first catch for him.

  98. 98 scratcherk said at 8:23 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Wentz showing excellent pocket mobility

  99. 99 SteveH said at 8:24 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    oof, Agholor can’t make the grab… Not a good look to start.

  100. 100 BC1968 said at 8:25 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    That wasn’t his fault, traffic, high fastball, can’t hang that on him.

    Hit him in the hands…same old shizz different year….

    Hollins with two beautiful stiff arms.

  103. 103 scratcherk said at 8:25 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Ags gonna Ags.

  104. 104 SteveH said at 8:27 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Just to describe the TD for those not watching, it was 4th down, Clay Mathews came unblocked on a blitz, Wentz shoulder ducked and shed him, threw a dart to Hollins who snared it, then he stiff armed the cornerback chasing him, stiff armed the safety who tried to tackle him to the ground, then tip toed down the sideline for the TD. Awesome stuff from Hollins and Wentz. Highlight play.

  105. 105 Rob Jarratt said at 8:28 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Many thanks, Steve. I’ll see it on NFL Network later, but it’s good to have the description right away. Good for Hollins and Wentz.

  106. 106 A_T_G said at 8:28 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Brandon Graham crushed a run in the backfield. Beat the TE fast.

  112. 112 SteveH said at 8:28 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    FF, Eagles recover. Fletcher Cox forces it.

  113. 113 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:28 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Cox stripped

  114. 114 A_T_G said at 8:29 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Hey now.

  115. 115 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:30 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    You’re just jealous that I said it first.

  116. 116 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:29 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    And McGloin is in. Wentz is done.

  117. 117 scratcherk said at 8:30 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Wentz out

  118. 118 meteorologist said at 8:30 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Pump is so hilariously small

  119. 119 SteveH said at 8:31 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Pumph fumbled his first carry at the very end, Eagles recover. It was a nice run but he definitely lost the ball right at the end.

  120. 120 SteveH said at 8:33 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Eagles rotating Pumphrey and Clement… Early impression is that Pumphrey looks more athletic, Clement just broke a tackle in the backfield though, good balance and toughness.

  121. 121 SteveH said at 8:35 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Side note: The Packers cheerleaders throwback uniforms are such an anachronism it’s actually distracting.

  122. 122 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:36 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    For those of you following along at home, they just replayed the Hollins TD. One of the really nice things that I noticed on that replay – Hollins got 2-3 yards of separation – made it an easy target for Wentz.

  123. 123 scratcherk said at 8:37 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Barnett witht he pressure and tip

  124. 124 SteveH said at 8:41 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Was that Barnett? I missed who got a piece of it. If that was Barnett good to see!

  125. 125 Dude said at 8:38 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Little late to the party, but how about that Mack Truck running through the GB defensive backfield!

  126. 126 SteveH said at 8:38 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Jalen Mills another pass breakup on Randall Cobb.

  127. 127 Dude said at 8:39 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    They’re saying PI, but to me it didn’t look like he redirected the guy.

  128. 128 SteveH said at 8:40 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I think he might have gotten there a little early, I didn’t see any redirection. That’s a 50/50 situation in the regular season if it gets called I think.

  129. 129 SteveH said at 8:39 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Jaylen Watkins gets beat by Martellus Bennett. Not the best or worst coverage.

  132. 132 scratcherk said at 8:41 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    So after the first quarter:

    Wentz looks elusive.
    Running game needs work
    Mills playing well.
    Barnett with pretty consistent pressure.
    Ags gonna Ags.

  133. 133 SteveH said at 8:42 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Gotta add on J. Matt looked good, got a critical 4th down conversion with a great broken tackle on the safety.

  134. 134 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:43 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    OL is shaky.

  135. 135 SteveH said at 8:44 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    In fairness the Packers blitzed every single play I believe. It’s a lot to ask the OL to be that coordinated this early.

  136. 136 SteveH said at 8:42 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Pass breakup by Eagles, interview got in the way not sure who batted it down.

  137. 137 Rob Jarratt said at 8:47 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Absolutely hate the interviews in preseason. Do they really think that droning on while play is going is what the viewers want? It’s only the hard core that’s interested in the games that don’t count.

  138. 138 SteveH said at 8:51 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I don’t mind interviews, just don’t do it in the middle of the action lol.

  139. 139 Rob Jarratt said at 8:52 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    That’s the problem. They often do.

  140. 140 SteveH said at 8:43 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Oof, not good, Pumphrey muffed the punt. Recovered it, but that’s twice he’s put it on the ground.

  141. 141 GermanEagle said at 8:44 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Thank god we have Sproles fielding punts. And returning those for TDs.

  142. 142 scratcherk said at 8:45 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Pumphrey with a second fumble

  143. 143 teltschikfakeout88 said at 8:46 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Pump called for a fair catch before anyone was within 20 yards of him…then muffed it…SMH…

  144. 144 SteveH said at 8:47 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Treggs with his second catch. Mcgloin actually doesn’t look terrible so far.

  145. 145 Corry said at 8:48 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Random observation: I’m pretty sure Wizniewski wears his helmet incorrectly.

  146. 146 SteveH said at 8:49 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Punt TD return for the packers… pretty sure the refs missed a blatant block in the back there.

  147. 147 Dude said at 8:50 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Absolutely. How did they not see that?

  148. 148 SteveH said at 8:51 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    NFL refs man. They miss really obvious shit all the time.

  149. 149 Corry said at 8:49 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Aaaand the entire team is getting the Fipp stare.

  150. 150 SteveH said at 8:49 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Yeah, #25 of the packers got away with a really clear block in the back right at the point of contact.

  151. 151 teltschikfakeout88 said at 8:52 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Yup…looked like a clip to me…but there was the PI no call that went in Mills favor too…yeesh…

  152. 152 Insomniac said at 8:50 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Did I miss much?

  153. 153 scratcherk said at 8:50 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    No Hollins on punt coverage team?

  154. 154 SteveH said at 8:53 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I love that we open at Washington. I want to kick their fucking asses to open the season.

    I think we might lose @KC though, tough opponent for an away game early in the season.

  155. 155 SteveH said at 8:55 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    pfffbbbbttttt… Trey Burton with a nice move, gets extra yardage, then fumbles, loses ball. Damn.

  156. 156 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:55 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Burton carrying the ball like LeSean McCoy and….he fumbles.

  157. 157 Insomniac said at 8:56 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    A very sloppy game so far

  158. 158 SteveH said at 8:57 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Terrance Brooks big hit on RB, pretty sure he had the PBU earlier too.

  159. 159 SteveH said at 8:57 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    CJ Smith beaten pretty badly by Geronimo Allison.

  160. 160 Allen3000 said at 8:57 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Good catch and run by Burton. But he was grossly negligent running in t traffic with only one hand on the ball. That’s some really undisciplined play. Better to get it out now though.

  161. 161 SteveH said at 8:58 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    CJ Smith beaten again for TD by Jeff Janis.

  162. 162 Sb2bowl said at 8:58 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    What did I miss

  163. 163 SteveH said at 8:59 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Wentz is awesome, Mack Hollins is a beast, J. Matt is in good form, Jalen Mills looked good, too many fumbles, CJ Smith looking really bad right now.

  164. 164 Sb2bowl said at 9:03 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Saw the Hollins catch. Wentz got out of trouble and Mack made a nice play

  165. 165 Corry said at 8:59 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    NOt a good look for CJ Smith on that drive. Needs to settle down.

  166. 166 scratcherk said at 8:59 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    cj smith burned

  167. 167 teltschikfakeout88 said at 9:00 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Twice in this series…

  168. 168 Dragon_Eagle said at 8:59 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    And the CJ Smith hype train just jumped off the tracks into the chasm below.

  169. 169 SteveH said at 9:00 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Bad news too, we could really use some corners to step up.

  170. 170 A_T_G said at 9:03 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    To be fair, if the guy had actually made that first move he faked…

    Ah, dammit, we’re screwed.

  171. 171 Dragon_Eagle said at 9:01 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Why are Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch shooting guns in the snow?

    What’s Kyle Fuller up these days?!

  173. 173 SteveH said at 9:02 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Hopefully talking to Howie Roseman as we speak.

  174. 174 SteveH said at 9:04 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Trey Burton with another nice move after the catch, hangs onto the ball this time.

  175. 175 Dragon_Eagle said at 9:05 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Awful, awful pick by McGloin.

  176. 176 Corry said at 9:05 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Looked like the receivers also picked each other rather than the defensive backs.

  177. 177 Dragon_Eagle said at 9:06 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Decent tackle by him though to prevent the pick six.

  178. 178 SteveH said at 9:06 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Gotta find the positives.

  179. 179 SteveH said at 9:05 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Ooooffff…. Mcgloin REALLY bad interception. First incomplete pass for us tonight too.

  180. 180 A_T_G said at 9:06 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Well, it wasn’t really incomplete…

  181. 181 Dragon_Eagle said at 9:06 PM on August 10th, 2017:

  182. 182 SteveH said at 9:06 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    BARNETT SACK!!!! WOooooooo!

  183. 183 Sb2bowl said at 9:08 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    That was pretty

  184. 184 Sb2bowl said at 9:06 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Pumph didn’t get his hands up

  185. 185 Allen3000 said at 9:07 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Our CBs should be banished from doing those stupid incomplete gestures until we see substantial improvement

  186. 186 Dude said at 9:08 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    That was a nice counter-move by Barnett. Good to see him working it in a game.

  187. 187 SteveH said at 9:09 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    It feels like a trap to get excited about a 1st round pass rusher from the Eagles but…. That was really good to see.

  188. 188 A_T_G said at 9:10 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Commentator just said Schwartz likes to blitz, other guy said he does, indeed.

    Guess the pregame scouting notes are in preseason form, too.

  189. 189 SteveH said at 9:10 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    you have the Packers feed?

  190. 190 A_T_G said at 9:12 PM on August 10th, 2017:

  194. 194 Insomniac said at 9:10 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Did Rasul Douglas play yet or no?

  195. 195 Corry said at 9:11 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I forgot Byron Marshall was on the team.

  196. 196 Insomniac said at 9:13 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    With Greene and Warmack in, you’d expect more push in the run game but nahhh

  197. 197 SteveH said at 9:14 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I’m not sure we’re getting a good read on this, the Packers keep blitzing over and over, it looks like most of the pressure on the run is coming off the edge.

  198. 198 Insomniac said at 9:15 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    It’s probably also rust too.

  199. 199 SteveH said at 9:13 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Well, Pumphrey took a huge hit and held onto the pass. So not sure why he fumbles the easy stuff but holds onto the hard stuff.

  200. 200 Insomniac said at 9:15 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    wooooops wrong reply πŸ™

  201. 201 Dragon_Eagle said at 9:14 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Where’s Smallwood? Pumphrey has been distinctly underwhelming.

  202. 202 Insomniac said at 9:16 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I believe Smallwood is injured and not playing today.

  203. 203 A_T_G said at 9:14 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Pump is going to need to add a few pounds if he is being asked to plow through DT (or safeties).

  204. 204 Corry said at 9:15 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Or corners…or the cheerleaders…or…..

  205. 205 Insomniac said at 9:17 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Fatter fingers = more surface area = more likely to hold onto the ball.

  206. 206 A_T_G said at 9:17 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    So, what’s up with Smallwood?

  207. 207 SteveH said at 9:19 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I don’t think he’s playing.

  208. 208 A_T_G said at 9:20 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Hmm, strange. I wonder why?

  209. 209 SteveH said at 9:20 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I just realized that’s probably what you meant. You could see he wasn’t playing lol.

  210. 210 A_T_G said at 9:21 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I was just having fun with Insomniac’s comments below.

  211. 211 GermanEagle said at 9:21 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    He’s safe.

  212. 212 Insomniac said at 9:19 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Is it just me or does Pumphrey look a little slow?

  213. 213 SteveH said at 9:20 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I think he looks plenty quick. Not super speedy but fast enough.

  214. 214 Insomniac said at 9:21 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    He looks shifty and that’s it.

  215. 215 Sb2bowl said at 9:21 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    He looks okay- more shifty than long speed

  216. 216 Insomniac said at 9:22 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Yup. Not very impressed with him so far but maybe my expectations are too high.

  217. 217 Sb2bowl said at 9:25 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    First preseason game. Give him time.

    Mcgloin looks horrible

  218. 218 Insomniac said at 9:26 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    He’s looking better now.

  219. 219 SteveH said at 9:20 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    long Pumphrey punt return called back for holding.

    Other small updates: Rasul Douglas on the field, hasn’t been targeted yet. Steven Means batted a pass down.

  220. 220 Sb2bowl said at 9:20 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Nice return- seems like he is getting comfortable out there.

  221. 221 Dude said at 9:20 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    He def looked jittery to start.

  222. 222 Sb2bowl said at 9:21 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Agreed.

  223. 223 Dragon_Eagle said at 9:22 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    McGloin reminds me of Barkley.

    Matt not Charles.

  224. 224 SteveH said at 9:22 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Greg Ward first catch.

  225. 225 SteveH said at 9:24 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Bryce Treggs with another catch, nice run after. He looks good tonight.

  226. 226 SteveH said at 9:25 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Bryce Treggs another catch, about 30 yards, nice play.

    Edit: 39 yards.

  227. 227 Allen3000 said at 9:26 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    He’s got some wheels and has good moves in space.

  228. 228 SteveH said at 9:26 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Lots of chatter about other receivers this camp, but tonight so far Treggs is the bubble guy looking great.

  229. 229 GENETiC-FREAK said at 9:26 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Treggs looks better than last year

  230. 230 Corry said at 9:27 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I know Pumphrey has been getting a lot of practice time, but I think he needs to spend a year eating at McDonald’s to put on some weight….

  231. 231 Insomniac said at 9:28 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    SIdney Jones too.

  232. 232 A_T_G said at 9:30 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Let’s see Jones on the field before we feed him to Pump.

  233. 233 SteveH said at 9:27 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Welp, another fumble lost. Billy Brown this time.

  234. 234 Insomniac said at 9:28 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Wow, Mychal Kendricks with the interception, lol.

  237. 237 Corry said at 9:33 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Raised his trade value. Now he’s worth a late round pick AND a half deflated football.

  238. 238 Rob Jarratt said at 9:35 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    The half-deflated football also comes with a Brady bobblehead doll.

  239. 239 A_T_G said at 9:37 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    But if you bounce the bobblehead, you get a flag for unnecessary roughness.

  240. 240 johhnyblaze said at 9:33 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Doesn’t elbow count as down, I thought his elbow hit the ground before the ball came out

  241. 241 SteveH said at 9:33 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    It looked like elbow was down to me too, but I guess they didn’t feel like they could overturn.

  242. 242 SteveH said at 9:33 PM on August 10th, 2017:

  249. 249 SteveH said at 9:56 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    17-6, we’re losing.

    Probably should be 17-9 but Sturgis missed a ~40 yarder.

    There goes the quick throw screens from last year sheesh.

    Noodle-arm McGloin throw throwing off the back foot is torture to watch

  253. 253 GENETiC-FREAK said at 10:02 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Hes learning the ropes from Foles lol

    Whew, Barnett just destroyed Petty on a screen.

  256. 256 A_T_G said at 10:08 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Did Douglas get thrown on? I don’t remember hearing his name.

  257. 257 SteveH said at 10:09 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Don’t think so.

  258. 258 SteveH said at 10:09 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Treggs is catching everything tonight.

    If you weren’t on the Mack Hollins hype train, hop on now.

  263. 263 Dave said at 10:14 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    He already broke more tackles than Ertz all of last season

  264. 264 A_T_G said at 10:15 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Tomorrow in Philly should be an official Hollins Day.

    Clements made a big block on a DL then moved to the middle and made a nice catch and physical run – and they were feeding Pumphrey the ball why?

  268. 268 Corry said at 10:22 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    They should literally feed Pumphrey the ball. Dude needs to put on some weight.

  269. 269 CTbirdsguy said at 10:23 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    and on cue he drops one

  270. 270 CrackSammich said at 12:10 AM on August 11th, 2017:

    Because McGloin kept panicking and dumping the ball off to him.

  271. 271 A_T_G said at 10:24 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    My biggest take away: McGloin is not worth a roster spot.

  272. 272 Flyin said at 10:27 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Out out of control back foot throws off target doesn’t impress you?

  273. 273 GENETiC-FREAK said at 10:28 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    hahaha

  274. 274 A_T_G said at 10:28 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Oh, it does. I just figure Kolb is out there…

  275. 275 Flyin said at 10:33 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    What’s impressive about McGloin is he is doing it without all the hits to the head.

  276. 276 CrackSammich said at 12:10 AM on August 11th, 2017:

    If I notice a QB’s throwing motion being bad, it’s bad, because I don’t know shit about throwing motions. Both McGloin and Osweiler release the ball from shoulder height… Let’s see how that works out for them.

  277. 277 SteveH said at 10:33 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    CJ Smith making plays now matters a lot less, all 2nd and 3rd stringers out there. His stock is definitely down tonight.

    Plus side, Rasul Douglas with a pass breakup the first time we see him. It’s against backups too, but he’s also a rookie.

    Gerry had some nice tackles earlier but whiffed badly on that last one.

    I feel like overall the corners performed better than expected tonight, considering how godawful they sounded like they were in camp. Jalen Mills especially was impressive.

  278. 278 GENETiC-FREAK said at 10:36 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Damn hit stick!

  279. 279 SteveH said at 10:37 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    That was a crazy brutal hit. I think he might have actually got his head with his shoulder, which is even worse than helmet to helmet.

  280. 280 Sb2bowl said at 10:40 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Missed it, on my way to bed. Got the clip?

  281. 281 SteveH said at 10:41 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    It will probably get a clip. Looks like the Packers guy is conscious and mobile, so hopefully he’s in ok shape.

  282. 282 D3FB said at 10:43 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Who laid the hit?

  283. 283 A_T_G said at 10:44 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Sullivan

  284. 284 D3FB said at 10:45 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Being freshly out of market suuuuuuuucccks.

  285. 285 A_T_G said at 10:46 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    There are way, on the dark web.

  286. 286 D3FB said at 10:49 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I tried a buddies VLC stream didn’t work well.
    I caught part of the third quarter on a Youtube Live.

    I’m just not playing with ubervirus streams for a preseason game.

    Looks like I’m probably going to have to shell out for a TV package for the season.

    Saw it this morning- kid can lay the wood. Hope Dupre is alright

  290. 290 CTbirdsguy said at 10:40 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    is it? I thought helmet-to-helmet collisions were like billiard balls, with maximal energy transferred (as long as they don’t slip across each other too much)

  291. 291 SteveH said at 10:41 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    I might be wrong, I just assume the shoulder brings more weight right behind it.

  292. 292 Flyin said at 10:39 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Hope the guys okay. Didn’t think the hit was dirty.

  293. 293 SteveH said at 10:43 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Good news, Les Bowen says his understanding is Big V’s knee injury not serious.

  294. 294 CTbirdsguy said at 10:43 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    can we please just see the emergency backup qb now….(McGloin has snap hit him in chest)

  296. 296 SteveH said at 10:45 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    This is where having G.J. Kinne is valuable.

    How is Max McCaffrey not on iur team? We always have the wrong brother.

  299. 299 Tumtum said at 10:49 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Except when we had Koy and Tye. Then we had two wrong brothers.

  300. 300 GENETiC-FREAK said at 10:49 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    This Callohan QB got good pocket awareness n elusiveness. Arm looks stronger than McGoin too.

  301. 301 D3FB said at 10:50 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    That would be D3’s Wesley alum Joe Callahan.

  302. 302 Tumtum said at 10:56 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    McGloin looks really bad.

  303. 303 anon said at 10:57 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    ummm surprised?

  304. 304 Tumtum said at 11:15 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Yep.

  305. 305 SteveH said at 10:50 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    320 lb Elijah Qualls with a spin move, nothing like watching one of the big heavies go all finesse.

  306. 306 A_T_G said at 10:52 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Sullivan looks like a penalty liability.

  307. 307 SteveH said at 10:53 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    not a good look to throw a gratuitous hit in right after almost beheading another guy a few plays earlier.

  308. 308 SteveH said at 10:54 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    looks like Elijah Qualls and Gabe Wright combined for a sack fumble on the QB.

  309. 309 SteveH said at 10:59 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Shelton Gibson with a drop. luls.

  310. 310 CTbirdsguy said at 11:00 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    That is not an off script plot development…should of caught that ball for,the first down..

    Nope…axe wound injury…not playing this game…

  314. 314 anon said at 11:03 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Got it – how long is he out? Id love not have to watch matt mcgloin ever

  315. 315 Flyin said at 11:04 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Interesting… an axe wound injury to prevent himself from being axed. Not sure it was necessary.

  316. 316 A_T_G said at 11:50 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Waiting until an axe wound is necessary to prevent yourself from being cut is the kind of attitude that will get you axed.

  317. 317 CTbirdsguy said at 11:12 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Evans over McGloin all day. He stands tall, rips his throws, and doesn’t make me cringe most of the time. hot take?

  318. 318 SteveH said at 11:18 PM on August 10th, 2017:

    Evans over Mcgloin, but neither on the roster.
