Gameday – at Tampa

We’re closing in on the start of Game 2, Eagles at Bucs. Here are the inactives for today.

No surprises. We knew Sproles would sit.

There is a lot of confidence that the Eagles will win this. I think they will, but it does bother me that Tampa scored so many points last week.

I can’t help but think of last year. In Week 2, the Eagles went to KC and lost to a veteran QB and his explosive weapons. Here we are in Week 2 and the team is going on the road to face a veteran QB with explosive weapons. There are obviously differences, but you get the point.

This will be a huge test for the defense.

Random Thoughts

  • I wonder if Rasul Douglas will get used in the Red Zone in matchups against Mike Evans. Size on size.
  • It will be interesting to see who the Eagles use as PR and KOR.
  • With Tampa starting two rookies at CB, you would have to think the Eagles will use double-moves to try and get deep on them.
  • Rodney McLeod will be key. He can’t let receivers get behind him.
  • Dallas Goedert had his Welcome to the NFL experience in the opener. I expect him to play better this week.

We’ll find out more about the Eagles in this game.

How good is this defense? Can the passing game get going?
