Gameday – at GB

Posted: November 16th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 25 Comments »

A few gameday items.


QB Nick Foles
OL J Vandervelde
OL D Kelly
WR Jeff Maehl

DL Taylor Hart
S Earl Wolff
CB Jaylen Watkins

Wolff is the only interesting name on the list. He has been disappointing on D and STs and is now watching games while newbie Chris Prosinski takes his place on Sundays.

There was an interesting report today about a CFL receiver that could be in high demand. Duron Carter, son of Cris Carter, was a major prep star but could not get things worked out in several attempts at college. He eventually ended up in the CFL and has emerged as a star. The report says 10 teams are heavily interested, with the Colts being seen as the favorites. Carter can negotiate with NFL teams in December, but wouldn’t officially sign until February.

The Eagles are not mentioned in the report. But after trying to make a deal for Vincent Jackson a few weeks back, you wonder if the Eagles are interested in trying to add another talented player to the mix. Carter is approximately 6-2, 190 and very talented. At the same time, he isn’t the kind of off-field player that the Eagles have seemed to want in recent years. The reason they could be interested is that he won’t cost a draft pick or a mega-deal.

I tend to think Carter is the kind of player the Eagles would pass on, but you never know.

The Eagles worked out a couple of QBs this week. Terrelle Pryor and Thad Lewis were in town for a look.

If Foles injury hasn’t healed much in a couple of weeks, the team may put him on IR and add a QB to the mix. Sanchez and Barkley are fine at 1-2, but the team may want a third option in case someone else gets hurt.

Both Lewis and Pryor have starting experience. Pryor is a dynamic athlete while Lewis is more of a pocket passer.

    CFL lists Carter at 6’5″, 205. If true that’s a big difference.

    What’s the reason Carter’s name cropped up?

  3. 3 unhinged said at 3:54 PM on November 17th, 2014:

    3 reasons Eagles could be interested: A college degree does not equal high character; A sense that junior is not the head case daddy was; A prospective franchise receiver. I’m not claiming the latter 2 points to be true, but they would probably mitigate philosophical reservations.

    GB are wearing their weird blue throwbacks. Not looking forward to having to see those all day.

  5. 5 ACViking said at 4:15 PM on November 16th, 2014:


    What’s in it for the Packers?

    Or the NFL at large?

    And why don’t the Eagles wear something that pays homage to the Pre-Lurie era? I mean, the Eagles did exist before Lurie arrived.

    (Wings on helmet don’t count!)

    Good game between Seattle and Kansas City.

    Eli just threw pick#5

  9. 9 GENETiC-FREAK said at 4:04 PM on November 16th, 2014:

    Wolff out again.. I know ST is a big emphasis.. Bit Maragos now becomes the primary depth at S.. If Jenkins or Allen go down they must be that confident in Maragos to fill the spot

  10. 10 ICDogg said at 4:10 PM on November 16th, 2014:

    49ers win

  11. 11 ACViking said at 4:11 PM on November 16th, 2014:

    Andy Reid wins again

    KC tied for 1st in AFC – West.

  12. 12 ACViking said at 4:13 PM on November 16th, 2014:

    Foles had his ups and downs . . . .

    But — with two minutes left in a game — among the young QBs, he’s still the guy I’d want if I needed a TD or FG.

  13. 13 GEAGLE said at 4:16 PM on November 16th, 2014:

    Absolutely… What makes luck and FOles special is they don’t unravel when they throw matter what mistakes they make, they will perservere and give you a chance to win at the end of the game…that’s what makes me think FOles is special even during the developmental ups and downs…

  14. 14 ACViking said at 4:18 PM on November 16th, 2014:

    Seems like Foles raises his game a notch inside the last few minutes.

    Not that he’s perfect. Not even Staubach, Elway, Manning, or Brady win every time they have the ball and need a score.

    But Foles wasn’t throwing INTs in that part of the game. He gave his team a chance.

  15. 15 GEAGLE said at 4:20 PM on November 16th, 2014:

    Always…he gave us a legit chance to win every game at the end, and he won his share…like out dueling luck at the end, In Lucks house with the world watching. both QBs had one chance at the end of the game.mFoles delivered, Luck didnt…..

  16. 16 ACViking said at 4:24 PM on November 16th, 2014:

    Hai perfettamente ragione

  17. 17 GEAGLE said at 4:25 PM on November 16th, 2014:

    I’m gonna have to leave at half time. : |. Will be able to listen to 2nd half on the radio but… kind of wish today’s was a 1PM.

  20. 20 GEAGLE said at 4:22 PM on November 16th, 2014:

    Damn dude…I always wish for 1pm games. Don’t like having to wait more than I have to for my eagle fix

    Wolff has been heathy and practicing all week…twice in a row, he doesn’t dress. Not a good sign, hope the kid takes this to heart and does something to rectify this situation…whatever it takes.
