The Other Guy

Fletcher Cox is a dominant DT. It can be easy to forget about the guy who plays beside him, Tim Jernigan.

The Eagles were dominant against the run. which was a key to their defensive success. They put teams into 2nd and 3rd-and-long situations. That allowed the Eagles to play situational defense and they did a great job of that. Jernigan was a key part of the run defense.

Let’s look back at some Jernigan highlights from last year.

Jernigan had 8 TFLs and 2.5 sacks in 2017. I think he can be even better this season. He’s now been in the system a full year and that should help him to get better at the little things. Jernigan has an outstanding combination of power and quickness. I don’t think we’ve seen the best of him yet.


Michael McCann wrote a good piece for on the Michael Bennett situation. This isn’t about innocence or guilt, but rather the technical side of things and how they might play out.


Cool interview here with Mike Wallace.

He talks about asking some friends around the league where he should sign and they all said “Carson”. That is the power of a good, young QB. Players want to play with that guy.

Wallace also talks about wanting to hear Jason Kelce mention him in a speech after winning the Super Bowl this year. Again, pretty cool.

Last year a lot of people wanted Kelce gone. The Eagles kept him and he had his best season. Then he gave a legendary speech and now he’s pretty much the King of Philadelphia. How crazy is that?


The Eagles love their current trio of DTs, but they are never going to be satisfied. This organization loves building up the players in the trenches and you know Jim Schwartz always wants more weapons for his D-line.
