Attitude Matters

Posted: November 2nd, 2017 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 192 Comments »

Jalen Mills is delusional. He thinks he is a combination of Deion Sanders, Darrelle Revis and Superman, but only better. He breaks up a pass. We see the finger wag. The receiver drops the ball. We see the finger wag.

Mills is convinced he is responsible for everything good that happens and he won’t acknowledge things that went wrong. Good CBs need a short memory and his memory seems to be as short as it gets.

Jim Schwartz could see Mills attitude right away last year. That helped Schwartz fall in love with him. Schwartz doesn’t want corners who hope to do well. He wants corners that think they can shut down anyone on Earth and do it with ease. Schwartz loves players that are confident and aggressive. That’s why he hated Eric Rowe.

You can pull up a scouting report and see that Rowe had the right size, length, speed and agility numbers to be a good starting corner. You can see some clips from college where he looked really good. But Schwartz saw up close and personal that Rowe didn’t have attitude. He didn’t believe in himself. He didn’t have the finger wag.

Rowe “picked off” Christian Hackenberg in the 2016 preseason finale. Actually, he was out of bounds, but he still caught the pass. Rowe kept that ball. As a trophy. This was a guy who was genuinely thrilled to almost come up with an INT off a crappy rookie QB in the preseason finale. That would make sense if Rowe was a rookie himself, but he was a second year player. Rowe battled against Megatron on national TV as a rookie. How could he celebrate the almost pick like that?

Mills struggled as a rookie, but has made great strides this year. He will never be anything close to a shutdown corner, but he is showing that he could end up being a quality starter.

Mills has played in all eight games this year. He has 10 pass breakups and 3 INTs. He has 33 solo tackles and a TFL.

Rowe has played in 28 career games. He has 50 solo tackles, 12 PBUs and 2 INTs.

A lot of people were very upset with the Eagles and Schwartz when Rowe was dealt. Schwartz gave Rowe all spring and summer to show him something. That never happened. Never came close. Schwartz knew it wasn’t going to happen so he was ready to cut bait and move on. The Eagles dealt Rowe and Mills got a lot of his playing time.

You obviously want really talented players, but at the very least, you want guys that play the way you want. Mills plays the way Schwartz wants. He is cocky, aggressive and willing to take chances. I don’t know what the future holds for Mills with Ronald Darby, Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas in the mix, but I can tell you that Mills won’t be giving anyone his job. He will fight like heck to stay on the field and it won’t shock me if he does.


Doug Pederson has emphasized competition all year long. This could be players on the team competing in weightlifting or in a practice drill. This could also be players battling for playing time.

Constantly competing has brought out the best in many players and the team as a whole.

This mentality will be important as Jay Ajayi tries to fit in on the field and in the locker room. He is talented and will be taking someone’s carries. Someone won’t be happy about that. Duce Staley and Pederson will share the message that the best players will play. This won’t be about draft status or salary. If you’re good, you play. If someone is better than you, they play.

It is easy to say this, but getting players to buy in is the challenge. Pederson has been preaching it all year so that will give his message credence and it won’t come across as random coachspeak.


The only thing keeping Nate Sudfeld from the Hall of Fame is Carson Wentz.

I hate losing Hamilton, but the Eagles had 6 DTs and someone had to go. They love Destiny Vaeao and still have high hopes for Elijah Qualls. That made Hamilton the odd man out. Personally, I like Hamilton better than Qualls. Time will tell us which one is the better player.


I’m not sure how I feel about this. Trevor Siemian was really struggling so you can argue that facing him would have been better. At the same time, Osweiler is not a good QB. And he’s a huge target for the pass rush to go after. Sunday will be interesting.

    I was def worried about Mills going into this season, but man he has really improved.

    Lets get this W!!! Lets get that 8-1 record!! #FlyEaglesFly

  2. 2 DrGeniusPhD said at 2:13 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Is it possible the Sudfeld move indicates a lack of faith in Foles?

  3. 3 GENETiC-FREAK said at 2:26 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Read somewhere a team was trying to sign him off the practice squad forcing Eagles to promote him. Must like him as a long term solution at backup QB to Wentz. A cheaper one too.

  4. 4 Fufina said at 2:32 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Eagles must be impressed by what he has done so far and think he can be a long term backup.

    I kind of expected the Eagles to draft a QB in 2018 to be the no.3 and then take on Foles back up role in 2019, but maybe Sudfeld can be that guy for the Eagles.

  5. 5 Bert's Bells said at 7:25 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Given the number of picks, I’d be really surprised to see them take a QB. I’d guess they pick up a crappy veteran or two for camp.

  6. 6 Stephen E. said at 10:12 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Keeping Sudfeld means they don’t have to burn a valuable pick in a year when they don’t have a lot of firepower.

  7. 7 Anders said at 3:28 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Honestly with Wentz so good now, only having 1 super cheap guy is the right move. No reason to have an expensive backup moving forward.

    Also some team will give Foles a chance next year consider the overall QB play in the NFL

  8. 8 Guy Media said at 5:09 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Correct, even if you only get back a 7th rounder, trading Foles is the right move in the offseason due to salary.

  9. 9 A_T_G said at 8:38 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I think the cap savings if traded is 5.2M vs. a savings of only 4M if they just release him. Either way, I imagine he will be gone if we like the young kid, but when it brings you an extra million that 7th rounder looks even better.

  10. 10 Gary Barnes said at 9:27 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Does not need to be expensive cough *Daniel* cough, but we do need to have a reliable backup in case Wentz goes down. This team should not lose all hope to a championship season bc the Eagles were willing to short cut the QB position

  11. 11 FairOaks said at 9:22 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Colts, supposedly.

  12. 12 Masked Man said at 3:05 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I don’t know Doc. We only know that Foles’ arm has not been tested much in games or public practices. Think he had 5-6 snaps on Sunday but he didn’t throw a pass.

  13. 13 GermanEagle said at 5:55 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Rather a lack of faith in Foles’ contract.

  14. 14 Ark87 said at 9:46 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    more pointedly-lack of cap space

  15. 15 Donald Kalinowski said at 11:23 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    According to OTC his cap number next year is $7.6 million, with only $2.1 million in cap savings of they cut him. Howie WTF are you doing? Stop overpaying for backup QBs.

  16. 16 D3FB said at 11:43 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Not really.

    The way you should ideally work your backup QBs is spend a late rounder/priority UDFA every 2 years. You preferably hide that guy on PS for 2 years (they couldn’t anymore with Sudfeld) or backend of your 53 and let him develop. Then you use the final two years on his rookie deal to have a cheap ass backup.

    Foles was brought in because Carson is young and so the extra set of veteran eyeballs doesn’t hurt and we didn’t have viable backup QB in place. So in 2019 Sudfeld becomes QB2 and you find a late round pick or UDFA you like and repeat the process.

  17. 17 GermanEagle said at 11:59 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I’d even say that Sudfeld becomes QB2 in 2018 already. The chunk amount of Foles’ salary can be rather spent on signing guys like Jernigan and other important own Free Agents.

  18. 18 D3FB said at 12:04 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Maybe but it’s really only a net of about $1.5 mil.

    Way less money than say Vinny Curry.

  19. 19 GermanEagle said at 5:19 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Curry has more TFLs than Foles though!

  20. 20 D3FB said at 5:48 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    You can find a ring chasing backup DE for < $5mil

  21. 21 teltschikfakeout88 said at 8:11 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    The ring chasers are old and get hurt…Ahmad brooks comes to mind…

  22. 22 D3FB said at 3:00 PM on November 3rd, 2017:

    Chris Long seems pretty healthy

  23. 23 RobNE said at 9:45 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I read yesterday the plan (or hope) may be Sudfeld is back up next year and Foles is traded, perhaps to a team as a holdover QB while that team finds one. Like a team where an assistant from the Eagles goes (after they win the SB).

  24. 24 mtn_green said at 1:41 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    They’re all same tall lanky similar body type. Probably able to run same offense. Rather than switching from Vick to foles.

  25. 25 EJ said at 7:43 PM on November 3rd, 2017:

    Pederson is like Andy Reid, he wants a backup veteran QB and wants a young QB to develop. Eventually Sudfeld will show some promise, then Howie will trade him for 3rd or 4th pick. Ha!

  26. 26 Insomniac said at 4:07 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I never had any love for Rowe, so I wasn’t as bothered as the Rowe lovers. He has tight hips and was always trialing behind guys. Pretty sure Schwartz hated that more than his attitude if Rowe was actually decent. Then again people were calling me crazy when I didn’t want to touch Jones and grab Lattimore in the draft.

    Is it confirmed that we dumped Hamilton for Sudfield?I really thought he had a future here as a main backup.

  27. 27 eagleyankfan said at 7:23 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    “He has tight hips and was always trialing behind guys.” – what are you implying?

  28. 28 A_T_G said at 8:35 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Cutting Hamilton is official. If he clears waivers, again, he might end up on the PS, again.

  29. 29 Jernst said at 4:15 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Always thought he looked like a safety to me

  30. 30 Joseph Thomas said at 9:37 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I thought the same thing, similar to what Dallas did with byron Jones

  31. 31 Guy Media said at 5:09 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    “You can pull up a scouting report and see that Rowe had the right size, length, speed and agility numbers to be a good starting corner.”


  32. 32 A_T_G said at 8:05 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    “A lot of people were very upset with the Eagles and Schwartz when Rowe was dealt.”

    I wonder what the opinions would have been if we had traded Rowe for Ajayi directly.

  33. 33 eagleyankfan said at 8:05 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    “Duce Staley and Pederson will share the message that the best players will play.” I understand this approach — with rookies/part time/older players. I can also see this approach when a starter goes down(say lineman) and 2 back ups complete. Don’t agree with the approach with established RB’s (sans NE). I think this promotes instability. Players like to have their role defined. AJ you’re the starter – Blount — short yardage guy. Smallwood/Clement – keep in shape. If that doesn’t work – work in Smallwood/Clement to see how they do. That’s better/more stable than — Clement played better so he’s in. Wait – Blount played better so he’s in. Wait, AJ scored so he’s in. Each time you have 3(or more) players thinking – what the hey, I played well too. Couple that with — if Blount and Smallwood were dominating – no trade would have happened(Eagles need draft pics). I don’t think they traded for AJ so he can rotate in and out with 3 to 4 other rb’s the next 2 years. I don’t think this is a ‘hey – whoever’s hot plays’ as indicated — I think this is the AJ/Blount show….

  34. 34 RobNE said at 9:43 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I think the plan is for now, best RB plays and the results will define the roles….but come late season and playoffs, people will know their roles.

  35. 35 eagleyankfan said at 9:52 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    and that’s a huge bonus when you’re 7-1….but I think there’s more to this than “best rb plays”. If the results were better, as of today with the current staff, AJ wouldn’t be needed. That kind of says already who the best(or better) backs are. That would mean the thought process of ‘hot hand’ doesn’t hold true. By default, AJ is already the hot hand. But that’s just me thinking out loud. 7-1 – plenty of time to see how things iron out…

  36. 36 or____ said at 10:00 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Why are you reversing his initials?

    And I disagree. Getting Jtrain was first of all, not just about this year. And I hate simplifying things to the point where – they got him therefor it definitely means that they weren’t happy with what they had.

    I’ve heard a lot of criticism about the backs we had, and a lot of it is valid, but we had the best record in the NFL and were in the top 10 (5?) in rushing before the trade. So I think it’s plenty fair to call BS on the “the RB’s weren’t getting it done” narrative – which really, you have to entirely ignore the big picture and get mired in paralysis by analysis to buy….

    Howie saw an opportunity to get much better – and pounced.

    As far as playing time/snaps going forward – there are many dynamics that contribute to those decisions. And it will be dynamic going forward.

  37. 37 eagleyankfan said at 10:05 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    you’re words “to get much better”. So, first you say – Eagles are just fine…then say ‘get much better’. You’re arguing my point. Next – go look at Blount’s numbers inside the red zone. He’s not getting the job done. That’s a fact.

  38. 38 or____ said at 10:08 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    (working backwards on your points) —

    – Is “the job” to get Blount good redzone numbers, or to win football games? We seem to disagree on the answer

    – Why can’t you get much better from just fine? If I need $1,000 a week to live a decent life, is an opportunity to take in $3,000 a week not “much better”? You don’t have to be in a bad situation to get much better. Am I wrong?

  39. 39 eagleyankfan said at 10:08 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    don’t let facts get in your way:In Philadelphia. LeGarrette Blount has gotten 18 red zone carries. That ranks fifth in the NFL but Blount has only scored twice. Blount has eight carries from inside the 5-yard line. He has -5 yards on those eight carries and one score. Expect Ajayi to start eating into Blount’s goal-line work and produce better red zone numbers now that he’s running behind a much better offensive line than the one he had in Miami.

  40. 40 RobNE said at 1:48 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Also Blount I read is on pace to have 2nd most carries in his career. Eagles FO prob thinks best result is he splits with Blount and they are fresh for the playoffs and hammer everyone, then next year Blount is gone.

  41. 41 A_T_G said at 8:13 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Douglas is a long-armed, rangy guy that is at his best breaking on the ball and attacking.

    Mills is aggressive, tackles really well, and shows excellent awareness and leadership.

    Both are a liability running stride for stride with a fast WR.

    I can’t help but picture a future when Jenkins slows where our secondary is compromised of CB Darby, FS Douglas, SS Mills, and CB Jones. It makes me happy.

  42. 42 kajomo said at 9:08 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I don’t think Douglas will ever be a safety. I could see him playing on the outside while Jones or Darby slide into the slot. Just because Douglas can’t ply the slot doesn’t mean he can’t get on the field in nickel.

  43. 43 scratcherk said at 9:51 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Speaking of this, what will our secondary look like next year?

    CB- Darby, Jones
    Nickel – Mills
    Safeties — Jenkins, McLeod

    Depth – Douglas

    Off roster- Robinson

    Can Mills succeed in teh slot?

  44. 44 ActionJackson said at 10:05 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I got robinson staying on the roster for depth just based off of his above average slot play this year alone

  45. 45 D3FB said at 11:35 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    He can succeed in the slot. He’ll tackle and can cover the jitterbugs. He’ll be vulnerable on third and short/medium when he has to get up on the line to guys with vertical speed just as he is on the outside. But there’s also likely to be safety help closer to him.

    Long term Mills is probably the heir-apparent for Jenkins. Let him play robber, deep half, and drop him down in man.

  46. 46 mheil said at 8:26 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I like Hamilton better than Qualls as well. I hope they add Hamilton to the PS.

  47. 47 myartz04 said at 8:31 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I’m tired of it when, mentioning Mills, you have to say what he will never be. “He will never be a shut down corner, but…”. I’m tired of the backhanded compliments. Jalen Mills is a good football player. Get over it.

  48. 48 Dave said at 8:40 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    He’s a good cornerback when he plays 10 yards off the line of scrimmage and has a safety playing over the top, just like almost all corners in the NFL.

  49. 49 or____ said at 9:20 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    In other words, he’s a good cornerback

  50. 50 Dave said at 10:11 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    He’s playing so well that according to Charles Davis, he is in contention for the Pro Bowl.

    Sarcasm aside, PFF has little regard for Mills:

    “WORST-GRADED: Jalen Mills, CB, 46.5

    The Eagles may have the best defensive front in football, but the back end is relying a little bit on smoke and mirrors, and the unsustainable play of Patrick Robinson, suddenly the team’s best cornerback due to injury. Robinson has six pass breakups and two interceptions, and has played phenomenally well, but the Eagles secondary is being relentlessly targeted, and may struggle to maintain parity over the season.”

    This was written prior to Mills’ game against the 0-7 49ers who had a 3rd round rookie QB starting his 2nd game.

  51. 51 eagleyankfan said at 10:15 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Giants won a SB on a dominant front and week secondary :). I don’t care where he’s rated 🙂

  52. 52 Dave said at 10:15 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    The Giants won with Eli. Twice!

    That is so hard to wrap my head around.

  53. 53 eagleyankfan said at 10:17 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    GAH! Just reading that makes me cry

  54. 54 myartz04 said at 10:44 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    PFF also thinks Wentz is garbage.

  55. 55 D3FB said at 11:30 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Sarcasm aside, no one who knows shit about football takes PFF seriously.

  56. 56 Dave said at 12:41 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Evidently 30 NFL teams don’t know shit about football.

    Chip Kelly, who owns a share of the company, obviously does not know shit about football either.

  57. 57 D3FB said at 1:02 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    If you think the NFL gives a fuck about the grades, you’re wrong.

    They pay for the charting information. The value to them is the quality control coach gets to go home twice a week.

    But if you really want to argue that teams are more dependent on anonymous guys basing their grades off TV copy and posting 10 minutes after the game, instead of their large pro personnel staffs, by all means be my guest.

    PFF grades are about as scientific as Jimmy’s report cards.

  58. 58 Dave said at 1:26 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    So people who know about football do take PFF seriously, just not their grades.

  59. 59 D3FB said at 1:29 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    When anyone says PFF they mean the grades not the charting. You cited a grade.

    You know your argument was trash now you’re trying to back out of it on semantics.

  60. 60 Dave said at 2:25 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    My comment was sarcasm.

  61. 61 sonofdman said at 1:06 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    So a guy who now has a financial stake in a company has now changed his opinion on the quality of their product? I’m shocked!

  62. 62 Dave said at 1:18 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I think you got that backwards. He bought a stake in the company after he changed his opinion on the quality of the product.

  63. 63 sonofdman said at 1:33 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    That’s what it says in the advertisement/article you linked to. Of course, that story is being told specifically to advertise how great PFF is, with the intended effect of making more money for the stakeholders of PFF.

  64. 64 Stephen E. said at 4:35 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Note that Mills is still graded 10+ points higher than several other teams’ starting corners on that list who rated worst on the team. Even our worst players are not bad (well, Maybe Joe Walker) and that’s why the D is consistent.

  65. 65 A_T_G said at 10:57 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Just like almost all GOOD corners. The great ones don’t need help, but we have suffered through a parade of guys in recent years that would not fit your definition of an NFL corner.

  66. 66 eagleyankfan said at 9:59 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    how many ‘shut down’ corners are there? They are a rare breed…hard to compare any CB’s to ‘shut down’….

  67. 67 myartz04 said at 10:43 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Right. Brandon Graham will never be Reggie White….it’s just an unnecessary statement. Mills is a good player. He’s gotten a lot better since last season and you don’t see his lack of long speed show up too much on film. And although CJ Beathard is far from Tom Brady, Mills is clearly studying his opponents considering his INT from Sunday where he broke on the ball before the receiver did.

    Another gripe. He will “never” be a shut down corner. Says who? I think it’s unlikely but I wouldn’t say never.

  68. 68 GermanEagle said at 11:40 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    The Jags might have two…

  69. 69 D3FB said at 11:53 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I don’t think the true shutdown guys exist in the modern league.

    Guys I would consider CB1 (a guy who can go toe to toe w/ anybody and handle themselves):

    Jimmy Smith
    Trumaine Johnson

    That’s 18.

    I’d also allow arguments for
    Treddy White

    You’re talking about a max of 22

  70. 70 Insomniac said at 2:55 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Dre Kirkpatrick over Janoris?

  71. 71 D3FB said at 2:58 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I haven’t exactly done a ton of film study on them all. I wouldn’t fight you on that.

  72. 72 sonofdman said at 3:14 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Apple, as in Eli? I certainly haven’t studied it, but it has always been my impression that he gets beat a lot.

  73. 73 D3FB said at 3:19 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    again i’m not watching all these guys a ton but he’s seemed pretty sticky when i’ve watched him, i put him on the second list because he’s young and has some inconsitencies. Again he could be just kinda crap my sample size is pretty small.

  74. 74 sonofdman said at 4:38 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I could definitely been wrong too, as my observations are purely anecdotal and probably biased because I like to believe players on the Giants and Cowboys are all overrated.

  75. 75 Gary Barnes said at 9:22 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I have to disagree. It is Schwartz’s job to get the BEST out of every player he is given. Will it happen every time? No, of course not, but to blame everything on Rowe for why it did not work here is likely inaccurate imo.

    The apparent reality that he already had a bias against Rowe since he did not have the “swagger” he likes and thus gave up on him, leading to him being traded for a 4th rd pick is not a ringing endorsement imo.

    Rowe is not a great player and does have responsibility for his part of what happened, but why do we need to continue to bash him a long time after he left? We’ll see if Mills pans out long term – he has improved this year and he & Schwartz deserve credit for that. Yet, he still has issues as a CB and is far from a great player.

  76. 76 kajomo said at 9:36 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    So you just throw fit out the window?

    We see players constantly fail due to poor fit. Connor Barwin was a poor fit in our 4-3. Chris Long isn’t significantly more talented or explosive at this stage of their careers, but he is a much better fit in the 4-3 scheme.

    Jason Babin sucked for Houston. Put him in a wide 9 and he terrorized QBs.

    Byron Maxwell was a stud in the confines of the Seattle defense. He’a struggles mightily in Philly and Miami.

    The best chance teams have of sucess is finding players that fit both the scheme and dare I say “culture” they are developing. If a guy that was drafted by another regime doesn’t fit and you don’t see it working, move on and get some value in return.

  77. 77 Stephen E. said at 10:16 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I could probably be a solid CB if you put me in a defense that commits penalties so often that the officials start ignoring them.

  78. 78 Gary Barnes said at 1:30 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    There are differences between types of fit in my view.

    Barwin was a bad scheme fit for the 4-3 because he fit best the OLB role in a 3-4 scheme. Forcing him to become a DE in the 4-3 was doomed to fail.

    Similar for Babin as you mention

    Maxwell was a bad scheme fit for Davis’ system and bad talent evaluation by the Eagles. He was a component part in Seattle, expecting him to be a #1 CB here was folly.

    Tommy is talking about attitude or confidence; a mindset that can help lesser talent succeed more than they might have otherwise.

    I agree it is important, but I would not be judging players solely on that factor or, in Rowe’s case, dismissing talent simply because the player has a different personality or does not meet one’s “swagger” quotient.

  79. 79 teltschikfakeout88 said at 3:27 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    culture over scheme??

  80. 80 kajomo said at 8:20 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    The 2 should be linked. Not one over the other

  81. 81 bill said at 9:40 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I think that’s overreacting to the analysis. To me, the point is that Schwartz knows what he needs from his CBs. And those qualities may not be the same thing that other schemes need from their CBs. It seems fairly obvious that Schwartz wants aggressive CBs, and all the positives and negatives that come from that trait. They’re going to get burned by being aggressive – Schwartz doesn’t want that to affect them.

    The fact that Rowe didn’t fit well with Schwartz’s scheme =/= he’s a bad CB. He’s just not the right fit, and it’s better for both player and team to recognize that early and move on.

    I’d rather have a coordinator that knows what he needs from each position and ruthlessly applies it than have a converted OL coach who tries his best to make all the disparate pieces he has fit into a coherent scheme. I think the evidence favors the former approach.

  82. 82 kajomo said at 9:45 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Completely agree. The only scary thing is what if Schwartz gets poached for a HC gig? What if our new DC has different needs at some of these key positions? I think it will be important for DP to find a DC that is comfortable with the current roster while Schwartz has more leeway to rebuild the defense.

  83. 83 Dave said at 9:56 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I disagree.

    As far as skill set and measurables, Rowe fit into the Schwartz scheme just fine. Schwartz, like Chip Kelly and apparently Adam Gase, needs players who fit his mindset 1st, and skill set 2nd.

    Obviously Rowe has been bitten by the injury bug in New England and hasn’t played much this season, but if he could fit into Belichick’s defensive system and the “Patriot Way”, it magnifies the narrow approach Schwartz takes in evaluating players.

  84. 84 or____ said at 9:51 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Tommy didn’t bash him, he mentioned what happen to illustrate a different point.

  85. 85 Gary Barnes said at 2:11 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    He bashed him several times during the article:

    1. Openly questioned why Rowe would keep a ball that he got in a game as if it showed him to be selfish or clueless. Seemed vindictive and stretching to make a point.

    2. Stated Rowe does “not have attitude” and “does not believe in himself”. How on earth does Tommy know this? He doesn’t. No player who made it to the NFL does not believe in themselves or have some attitude. Otherwise, they would have given up long ago and stopped working the long hours to hone their craft.

    The point is Rowe did not have ENOUGH attitude to placate Schwartz or overcome his bias which is sad.

    3. Stated Schwartz hated Rowe. I’d love to hear or see proof of that; seems over the top. If Schwartz truly hated Rowe, there must have been a lot more going on than just this issue. We never heard of anything so call me skeptical.

    4. He posted stats for both players while completely dropping context that Rowe missed time both seasons and plays backing up two good starters in NE whereas Mills is starting due to our lack of other options at CB. If Mills was in NE, he would not be starting either. It certainly makes Rowe look bad in comparison, but again is slanted.

  86. 86 D3FB said at 2:27 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    1,2,3: Tommy is privy to conversations with people that you are not.

    4. He did provide context. 28 career games played for Rowe vs Mills 2017. This is an eagles fan website. People know what’s happened with rowe.

    For more specific context: 1046 career snaps for Rowe vs 506 for Mills this year.

  87. 87 kajomo said at 9:39 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    As a point to attitude, the Seattle Seahawks put a huge emphasis on this. They like guys that have overcome adversity in their lives and have a chip on their shoulder. Many athletes are given passes throughout their lives and are not used to overcoming adversity. They come to the NFL where everyone is crazy talented and struggle to adjust to competing for playing time or not being a star. The Ravens always look for tough, physical players. The Patriots force players to conform the “the patriot way” or they are gone. Nobody is safe.

    This all boils down to what we call creating and identity. It is something our eagles teams have lacked for a very long time. Great teams have an identity. Something identifiable about the way they play the game, the way the practice, and the players the bring into the fold.

  88. 88 or____ said at 9:50 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Great point. And I believe we have several if not many guys on our team that fit that description.

  89. 89 Bert's Bells said at 10:02 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    “Identity” is most often applied after winning.

  90. 90 RobNE said at 1:45 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    and it’s brother chemistry.

  91. 91 kajomo said at 4:05 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I think Cleveland has a pretty clear identity right now

  92. 92 Bert's Bells said at 4:47 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    They have their own brand of winning.

  93. 93 Mac said at 7:56 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    you can’t spell process without P-R-O

  94. 94 Someguy77 said at 6:20 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    They also have a very talented secondary and have invested huge dollars into it too. More than any other NFL team.

  95. 95 kajomo said at 8:26 PM on November 3rd, 2017:

    Yeah after the drafted everyone in it. It’s not like they signed a bunch of FAs. The developed those guys by instilling a culture.

  96. 96 RobNE said at 9:46 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    this game is kind of a freebie, would be awesome if they won but it’s the Dallas game that is so much more important.

  97. 97 Fufina said at 10:51 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Kinda disagree. Eagles are big game hunting now, the no.1 seed is massive for this team. The Link is a becoming a fortress and i have no desire to go into some of the more hostile stadiums in the NFL if have to play the Seahawks, Saints or Vikings deep in the playoffs.

    We need a buffer considering we still have to go west coast and play the Seahawks and possibly give them a valuable tiebreaker over us if we lose.

    We are a better team than the Broncos and they are coming into our house. We have to win those games if we want to be a top seed.

  98. 98 D3FB said at 11:27 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    It’s important but it’s an AFC game so it’s not as valuable from a tiebreaker perspective. Wins are good but a win over Seattle or the Rams is more important both from a head to head and tie breaker standpoint.

  99. 99 Sean E said at 1:00 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Tiebreakers only matter if your records are tied. I’d rather just win these AFC games so it’s not even a discussion!

  100. 100 Dave said at 9:59 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I have to admit I’m kind of shocked, but McDermott has been doing a great job in Buffalo. He got rid of quite a few good players from that roster and has them at 5-2.

  101. 101 Masked Man said at 10:10 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Check out this feature.

    Jalen Mills is one of the most enjoyable players on the team to me. Love the swagger. Love the fight. He’s like a tough little dog that becomes the Alpha Dog in the pack of big dogs.

    Eagles’ website has a feature on him called “The Green Goblin” with Jalen’s story, nice photos and great art direction. Rarely do you see player features like this. Check out the NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

  102. 102 Dave said at 10:14 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    He’s an easy guy to root for, that’s for sure. Although I’m just not sure of that green hair nub on the back of his neck.

  103. 103 daveH said at 12:24 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Just can’t take the nickname “goblin” .. yuck

  104. 104 Dave said at 10:21 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Damn, Wentz is the NFC player of the month while Watson is the AFC player of the month. Cleveland fans are having a bad week.

  105. 105 Bert's Bells said at 11:24 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    A bad “week” is a good month for Browns fans.

  106. 106 Donald Kalinowski said at 11:28 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    All this crap about how their front office outsmarted us a few years ago. Sheesh.

  107. 107 Patrick said at 12:50 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    To be fair, they did build a great team with all those draft picks, which really set them up for the future, and with their FA signings put them in great position to win, and just need the QB to be a dominant team.

    That QB will be in a great position, I mean going to a talented team thats already… Oh wait, they’re 0-8 and look horrible all around. All that talent they were supposed to add in the draft hasn’t looked all that talented. That roster just has very little actual NFL talent.

  108. 108 A_T_G said at 1:36 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    And they have been doing this long enough that any talent they do find is leaving out the back door as fast as it is coming in the front.

  109. 109 D3FB said at 1:01 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Really easy to get fluffed by the football analytics community when you hire a guy from Football Outsiders for your front office.

  119. 119 BlindChow said at 11:30 AM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Has Mills even done the finger wag this year? I’ve been waiting for it, but it seems like he’s moved away from it.

    (Which is good; I hate the finger wag gesture almost as much as I hate the “feed me” gesture…)

  120. 120 Dave said at 4:23 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I’m starting to think you haven’t watched any games this season when the defense is on the field;-) Between Mills and Rasul, there are quite a few finger wags per game.

    I’ve actually heard that GEICO has approached both Mills and Douglas to revive the “not in my house” commercial.

  121. 121 BlindChow said at 7:01 AM on November 3rd, 2017:

    Strange that no one else corrected me then. I guess everyone else is blind too.

  122. 122 Dave said at 7:33 AM on November 3rd, 2017:

    I watch the games with a group every week. We all finger wag each other every time one of those 2 do it. Its something we look for and laugh about when it happens.

  123. 123 Dave said at 8:23 AM on November 6th, 2017:

  124. 124 BlindChow said at 10:53 AM on November 6th, 2017:

  125. 125 Dave said at 1:03 PM on November 6th, 2017:

  126. 126 RC5000 said at 4:56 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Finger wag is good for a CB. It shows he’s passionate and engaged and I just can’t think of anything else I’d like for CB. Fist pump is worse than a finger wag although that’s probably what I would do haha .

  127. 127 Howie Littlefinger said at 6:57 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I think it is more than appropriate for TD celebrations tho

  128. 128 Todd Blake said at 12:13 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Mills plays every snap along with Jenkins and McCloud. That tells you he is rarely out of position. What he doesn’t have with speed and size, the makes up for with understanding, positioning, and studying. I’ll take it.

    I think the idea with Hamilton is that it is less likely that he will be picked up by another team. But keep an eye on NE, they are thin on the line and their top DT is injured.

  129. 129 Seth S. Scott said at 12:16 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I instantly thought, “OH NOT BROCK BREAKOUT GAME” But then remembered he’s been on like 10 teams since he started for the Broncos last FOR A REASON. Dude is a gonna be a sleeping bag on Sunday.

  130. 130 A_T_G said at 1:34 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Like a Spinal Tap amp, Brock might go to 11.

  131. 131 FairOaks said at 5:20 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    The one fear is something of a dead cat bounce — maybe the other players have some brief hope, and play harder for a while. And there is no tape on Osweiler for the Broncos this year, so teams may take a bit to adjust. Siemian was getting worse and worse — would have been nice to be the last team on that trajectory.

    I assume Paxton Lynch will be given a chance once healthy, which may be soon.

  132. 132 mtn_green said at 1:45 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    This secondary is all smoke and mirrors. Some qb with good wr is going to throw 50/50 balls all day and expose them. Hope db can get enough picks to scare them from that strategy and Carson and co can keep defense off the field or score enough points.

  133. 133 MattE said at 2:22 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    You get the prize!

  134. 134 Gary Barnes said at 2:24 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Go back to the GB game last season or parts of the Giants game this season. An offense that has a OL/blocking scheme to slow down our rush and a QB with speedy weapons who can employ the quick pass game can give our defense problems.

    Thankfully, not many teams have all those facets. The other help for the defense is we usually play with a lead and thus the opponent struggles with staying balanced. If we got behind against a team with the above facets, it could be a long day.

  135. 135 RC5000 said at 4:04 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Huh? 50/50 balls all day? The big issue with our CBs (minus Darby) is speed not competitiveness in coverage.

    I don’t think they’re that good but I wouldn’t say it’s all smoke and mirrors either. Darby, Jones, Mills and Douglas could be a nice set of CBs next year.

    Zach Ertz (hamstring) was limited at Thursday’s practice.
    Late-week additions to the injury report are never a good thing, though as of now, there’s little to suggest Ertz is in danger of missing Week 9. Assuming he gets the green light, Ertz will take a four-game touchdown streak into Sunday’s matchup against Denver.

  155. 155 Tumtum said at 6:21 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I think Mills has shown all Spring, Summer, and now Fall that he is an adequate corner. Thought he showed himself as adequate last year. This year he is actually pretty damn solid.

    You guys might remember the 2004 season; the last time we went to the super bowl after starting the season 7-1.

    After that great start we went into Pittsburgh and had our arses whooped. This Sunday has sort of the same ring to it. And I wouldn’t mind if a possible humbling loss has us even more focused for the second half of the season.

    Go birds.

  166. 166 laeagle said at 7:12 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    This game looks nothing like that Pittsburgh game. That game was a showdown of undefeated teams. This is…not that.

  167. 167 Someguy77 said at 8:13 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Yeah. That Steelers’ team was a really good team (went 15-1) and they had just beaten Pats soundly the week before.

    It was billed as a matchup between the best 2 teams in the NFL that week.

    Eagles are home against a team who offense has been horrendous and just changed their starting QB for their former mediocre starting QB. Also coming off a short week against a divisional rival.

    QB change is a bit of a wild care but no reason the Eagles should lose this one either.

  168. 168 Bert's Bells said at 7:13 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    Gotta give credit to this whole coaching staff:

    Mills and Ags both looked like they weren’t going to be major contributors to this teams success. Both have helped us win games this year. Never would have believed it last year.

    Wentz… sure
    Cox… yup
    Graham… definetly

    but those two….. yea right. Glad to be so wrong!

  172. 172 unhinged said at 8:08 PM on November 2nd, 2017:

    I see where Kiko Alonso did not get suspended for a questionable hit on Joe Flacco. That is good news to me. That rule, as it applies to running QB’s is a gotcha rule. The QB can time his slide to elevate the probability that his nearest opponent will get flagged, or better yet, get suspended. The safe play for defenders is to run at the running QB with a determination to AVOID contact. This isn’t football. In an ill-conceived policy to allow the NFL to say they are doing something to protect the QB. Apparently the rule has been in place for decades, but the recent strategy to combine the right to slide with protecting the QB at every turn has yielded a de facto advantage to the offense. The Alonso hit came inches away from the first-down marker. Requiring defenders to exercise restraint after years of conditioning to play to the whistle is whack.

    Agreed. I think QBs have a habit of milking that rule. Same with running out of bounds. Lots of QBs try to wait to the very last second in hopes the defenders will contact them just enough for a flag. Everyone one of them gets up and screams for a flag at the slightest contact.

    Either get down or get KTFO.

    Edit: Not saying Kiko shouldn’t be flagged. But I understand

    Suspended? No, but he certainly gave himself up, and it was certainly unnecessary roughness in every since of the term. The QB is considered down the INSTANT he gives himself up. Therefore he gains no extra yards on the slide. I don’t see the advantage.

    Kiko is an idiot. We all know that. Only reason he hit Joe like he did is because he doesn’t understand the rule. He made a bad football play and was penalized appropriately.

    I agree that QBs often try to slide late to get every last yard, and if they are hit in that situation, I have little sympathy for it. However, to me, Alonso changed his angle once the slide began rather than keep going, and that changed angle happened to impart a ton of force at the head. Simply hitting the QB there should be OK — Alonso had no time to stop — but I don’t like the last part. May have been instinctual as it happened very fast, but those are instincts you don’t want. If he had time to change this target to the head, he had time to change it elsewhere (or not change it and go over the top somewhat). But maybe they decided a fine is better. Flacco definitely slid late and deserved to still be hit, but the head stuff really should stop. No way was that spot Alonso’s original target.

    On the side-angle replay i saw, Kiko cocked his shoulder so it would hit the ‘upper body’, and the shoulder ripped the helmet off. That is extracting maximum violence from the ‘tackle’. Hit to the head obviously, unnecessary roughness possibly. But suspend for what?

    Joe Flacco is 6’5.

    In order for Kiko to have “accidentally” hit Flacco in the head he would have to claim he was trying to tackle Flacco in the knees.

    No one believes that.
