Youth Movement

One of the big mistakes the Eagles made in the offseason was bringing back too many older players. Football is a young man’s sport. You can mix in some veterans, but too many older players is asking for trouble.

It was encouraging to hear Doug Pederson say in his press conference that JJ Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward would have roles in the offense even with the likely return of Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor. JJAW has some issues, but he also has talent. He’s healthy and can help this offense. He has a good combination of size and speed. JJAW isn’t going to start catching passes left and right, but he can be a solid contributor.

Ward played well last Sunday, but at least a couple of his catches came when he was covered by a LB. He will be more of a role player than JJAW, but he can still help the offense. Wentz trusted him on key plays last week and Ward mostly did a good job.

As I mentioned earlier this week, the young players will benefit from having game tape to study. They can see their mistakes and learn from them. That really is how players do their best learning. Obviously there were issues for both guys to work through from the Seahawks game.

The Eagles have used rookie Andre Dillard at LT and he has shown a lot of promise. Matt Pryor made his NFL debut last week and did some good things. Rookie Miles Sanders has been a playmaker as a runner and receiver. Boston Scott has been better at RB than as a returner. He could be a good role player, for now and the future.

This isn’t a dynamic youth movement, but it is a solid group of young players with a couple of studs (Sanders, Dillard).

Elliott is another good young player. He’ll be around for a while now.

It can be easy to take a kicker for granted, but ask a Bears fan or a Chargers fan and they will tell you just how important a position that can be.

Smart move by the Eagles to lock him up.

*****

Good news on the injury front. The OL should be healthy for Sunday.

Oh wait…Ertz is now banged up? Let’s hope he’s just sore and taking it easy this week. He has taken a beating in recent weeks. Teams can’t cover him so they try to punish him after the catch. The Eagles need him on Sunday so let’s hope he gets better quickly.

*****

Good news.

  2. 2 Eagles News: Chip Kelly supervise-t-il son retour dans la NFL en tant que coordinateur offensif? | MbS French said at 6:22 AM on November 28th, 2019:

    […] Mouvement de la jeunesse – Eagles BlitzC'était gratifiant d'entendre Doug Pederson à sa conférence de presse dire que Jj arcega-whiteside aussi bien Greg Ward aura des rôles dans le crime, même avec un retour probable Alshon Jeffrey aussi bien Nelson AgholorJJAW a quelques problèmes, mais il a aussi du talent. Il est en bonne santé et peut aider avec cela. Il a une bonne combinaison de taille et de vitesse. JJAW ne va pas commencer à attraper des passages à gauche et à droite, mais il peut être un membre solide. Ward a bien joué dimanche dernier, mais au moins deux de ses prises sont survenues alors qu'il était couvert par LB. Il jouera plus le rôle que JJAW, mais il peut toujours aider à l’attaque. Wentz lui avait fait confiance lors des parties clés la semaine dernière et Ward avait fait du bon travail. […]

    […] Молодежное движение – Игглз БлицОтрадно было услышать, как Дуг Педерсон на своей пресс-конференции сказал, что JJ Arcega-Whiteside а также Грег Уорд будет иметь роли в преступлении даже с вероятным возвращением Альшон Джеффри а также Нельсон Агхолор, У JJAW есть некоторые проблемы, но у него также есть талант. Он здоров и может помочь в этом. У него хорошее сочетание размера и скорости. JJAW не собирается начинать ловить проходы влево и вправо, но он может быть солидным участником. Уорд хорошо играл в прошлое воскресенье, но по крайней мере пара его уловов пришла, когда он был прикрыт LB. Он будет более ролевым игроком, чем JJAW, но он все равно может помочь в нападении. Венц доверял ему на ключевых пьесах на прошлой неделе, и Уорд в основном хорошо поработал. […]
