    IDK injuries at WR and what we did with the PS players(whomever drafted them) was pretty impressive(Ward not Jjaw-he was disappointing).So draft picks and FA's that can't play due to lack of a med staff and related injuries aren't really Howie's issues in my view.Jjaw was ranked fairly high(but so was MS2),so are we ruining the WR's we draft?? Maybe that explains the release? I would like to see some staff that can develop these players.We do a fantastic job with TE's.Maybe one of those staff need to go on the WR staff.Maybe that whole department is being wasted and better used on the WR aspect,then replace the TE staff

    Just make sure we get Ruggs in round 1. Then no one will be talking about how bad we evaluate WR's again...  That dude is a rare find and we need him.

     

     


  2. Welp, I tried to sign up yesterday and today for the Super Bowl Corn hole tournament without luck. So I called the radio station this morning to see if they could get me and my daughter in. They told me the registration was closed, so I guess I am out of luck for the 2nd year in a row... They did take my number saying they would call me for a possible play to get in before it starts...  So there is a very slim chance we get in. My daughter is actually a very good player. Me on the other hand.... average lol

    On February 3, 2011, Gruden was hired as the offensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals.[10][18] On January 13, 2012, Gruden signed a three-year extension with the Bengals at the position,[19] even after being asked to interview for at least three NFL head coaching jobs (with the Jacksonville Jaguars, St. Louis Rams, and later turning down the Indianapolis Colts).[20]

    In January 2013, Gruden was interviewed by the NFL's Arizona Cardinals, Philadelphia Eagles, and San Diego Chargers for their vacant head coaching positions.[21][22]

    Gruden’s offense was responsible for the Bengals going to three straight Wild Card playoff appearances, including the AFC North title in 2013

    Sometimes as a coach or a person in general you have to look in the mirror and be honest with yourself when you ask the question "When was I the most successful in my life.?" For Jay Gruden it was when he was an offensive coordinator, not a head coach.  I have no problem with him at all in that capacity if Doug Pederson likes what he brings to the table. I would prefer that my offensive coordinator was previously a QB whether NFL or College and it seemed to work well with Pederson and Reich. Not sure how well those two knew each other before the interview process.

      Welp, I think he and Doug would be a great team. Whether or not the Eagles choose him I have no clue. I am sure there are plenty of options though. I guess we will see. Gruden played QB so he might be a good fit for Wentz ...

    I can see it now .... Wentz and Gruden disagree about something .... Gruden reaches into his pocket and pulls out a Topps football card ... and reads Terry McLaurin's rookie stats ... Wentz sits down and says ... " ok I'll be quiet now, you got me."     

    He had like his 5th string QB playing in 2018.... He did a great job just competing that year.... He was pulling guys from the street....

    My choice is the same as my mock drafts.   I'm not really worried about spending my time wondering who ... when we pick a guy, I'll give an opinion then.   The type of guy I want is who I just stated.... a guy who Doug can respect when he tells him to run the ball and let Carson ,make more decisions.   If you think its Gruden, then great ... but one WR doing well to me isn't criteria for hiring an OC.   

      Well, I think Gruden did well for what he had to work with. That team was decimated with injuries in 2018 and did not get much help in 2019. Players he could have used were let go or traded. Gruden was the fall guy. I doubt Rivera does much better this year.

    LOL,I do it too,no worries,but I DO still miss Reich.SO that part was accurate.I know it's not ONE guy,but we had a great team of staffers when he was here

    What are you selling?

    Not selling, Buying material for us to machine. First he says to buy per quote. Then he says that we already paid for the tooling so please take that off. Then he says to change date required.... Then I turned off my email....

    Just a guess.... any LSU WRs going early in draft?     College talent can dictate a lot... bigger gap in talent in a lot of cases.     

    The talk on the radio.... Duce might look to leave if he doesn't either get the job or at least get serious consideration.   IMO... I think Lurie may look to have an influence on his coach to where he looks to run it more.    IDK.   I'm ok with whoever... just passing on the local talk.  

    BTW.. to me Doug is the play caller ... the OC really just helps with game plan and keeping him from going to pass heavy.   I don't think its ideal job for someone looking to advance their careers?   For me a clash with Doug would be good.    But perfect world keeps Duce and Stoutland at their current jobs

    You confuse me GBFL. a month ago you were saying the biggest reason we were not playing well was the loss of our OC. Now you say the OC just helps with the game plan.... I would love the Eagles grab Shanahan. He is a motivator and a great offensive mind.


  8. What I have not seen mentioned is the fact that Seattle's OL sucks. Ranked near the bottom in the NFL. The only reason they are in the play-offs is Wilson's ability to escape the pressure.

    Now, keep in mind that the Eagles defense ranks first at points against when playing home. Why? Because the defensive line plays a whole lot better here. That being said, I think we rush 4 most of the game and keep a spy on Wilson (Jenkins?). The way to win is keep people in front of Wilson. He is short so that means we need to keep our hands up and maintain some sort of organized rush, keeping him in the pocket.

     

      I have no clue how this games pans out, but the containment of Wilson is a huge key. I agree with whoever said we need to play more man, jamming WR's at the LOS.  Keep the rushers in their lanes and get in his face. Not easy but I feel this D-Line can do this....

       Anyway, that is how I feel. Not sure it means anything though.... LOL

    The Holidays were wonderful...funny thing this holiday I didn't have any alcohol the wifey didn't even drink a beer....weird...still wonderful.

    Sydney has been clutch playing his best ball. I hope he has turned the corner, still need to see how he holds up for longer periods on the field. Love he gives us more speed and length on the field. It would be the perfect time for that pre- draft shutdown CB to show up.

      Well, he may not be that guy, but I just want to see if he can be better than what we have. I agree that it would be awesome he shows that. With Darby out and Douglas hurting he should play a bit this weekend. Crossing my fingers....

     

       I normally don't drink but a few beers or drinks, but got carried away with 3 white Russians. Did not taste strong...... Big mistake. lol


  10. I want to know if all still feel Jones is a wasted roster spot. I made a suggestion a few weeks back to play him and see if we should keep him or let him go. At the time, it appeared we would not make the play-offs..... Almost everyone jumped on me for even suggesting that. Now he appears to have turned on the Switch in his head. I felt he had the tools to be good but was doubting his ability. Once he got his confidence back he seemed to be a different player.....

     

        I hope all had a great holiday. I am a bit hung over still and finally back to work...

    Disagree(no surprise) Djax injured again,besides time missed,who knows if he will regain what he had(more waiting like we always do).Young guys can have the same speed,so I opt for those as it seems to me the younger,the more reslient.Alshon is our vet,see no need to spend money on another one.There is no assumption we get Anderson,so I believe we take a WR in 1,add another in 3,a late one for the competitional aspect.Guys like say McLaurin are out there and we need to grab 2.On the flip side we need CB's who can cover the Djax types.Easier said than done but also feel this is a top priority 

      If we go after any FA I would think it will be a proven CB. It is clear we do not grade that position all that well in the draft so may as well take care of it in FA. WR is also a position we do not grade well, but there are so many solid prospects in this year's draft I can see us drafting one who works out finally. It would be hard to mess that up... I can hope. I would also like to finally grab a solid LB in this draft. Rounds 1 or 2. Grab someone who has a great motor and never gives up on a play. One who can stuff the run and has fairly good cover skills which can be honed at the next level. We won't be able to grab an elite Prospect that can do all great, but can grab one who does some things great and others that will be OK with coaching.

      Grab an interior lineman in round 3 or 4....

     

     


  12. I am not sure how we can beat Dallas. We played against a beat up O-Line in Washington. Their best O-Lineman was out yet we had 0 sacks and 0 pressures? This, against the team that has given up the most sacks all year. If they play like that against Dallas, we will be watching the play-offs. Of course playing either SF or Seattle is not prize either. Wentz looks as though he has gotten a bit of his confidence back. Yes against bad teams, but it has to start somewhere. He is starting to look like he sees the field more...

    I mean didn’t Schwartz come out and take the blame for one of the Darby Tds let up????

    Even of Darby has had some bad plays no deny the massive improvement our secondary got with his and Mills return.

    Also not like Jones hasn’t been given multiple chances to show he can be a starter for us and has underwhelmed every chance he has gotten.

    Massive improvement Other than Darby. He sucks. He has not had a decent game this year.... Not sure what you see in him but I see someone who cannot tackle my mother and takes bad angles and gets beat deep every game.

    You must be forgetting all the terrible snaps Jones had this season. The guy(James) we signed straight off the street looked better than him. I’m not saying Darby hasn’t made mistakes. I don’t even want to defend him. But there is no defending Jones play so far....it’s been awful, terrible, disgusting, disappointing, shameful....rated as our worst corner. You want to bench Darby...I could listen. But you have to come up with something better than Jones...who’s been the worst.

    Then cut him. If he is that bad and the coaches fell the same, he should not take up a roster spot. If he has been improving in Practice, then maybe he can spill it over during a game. He had a nice pass defense last game when forced into action. Yes he has been plain awful earlier this year. But if he has shown improvement then he may be a better option than Darby. If he still stinks, cut him and be done with it. I personally think it is a confidence issue. He has the talent........

    No we have him for four years. But because he didn’t hardly play we actually can get a medical year exemption adding another year. But he doesn’t get put out there at this point just ‘to find out about him.’ We’ll see how he looks in TC and PS next year. And we could fight for the medical redshirt...but not sure he’s even worth doing that for.

    Ham, I agree with your opinion, but When we have Darby giving up TD's because he cannot tackle and cannot cover, why not at least give Jones a shot in his stead? I am fairly certain Jones could not do worse than what we have gotten out of Darby.... He also did make a nice play when he had to come into the game last week. A glimpse that maybe he should see some more snaps...?


  16. OK, I have to admit it, even though I have fought this for years. My son-in-law went to Genos for a cheese steak and said it was the worse one he has ever tasted. Rolls were hard as a rock and he said the cheese looked like Cheese Whiz.... The meat was tough as leather.

       He also said he went to Pat's across the street and they were not much better. I was saddened to hear this as I used to love their cheese steaks. I know that they were not always like this.

    I do have a place that rivals Philly's best for cheese steaks though. The main reason I love these is that they use home made rolls from pizza dough! The sandwiches are about 18" long and under $10. The meat is ground but flavorful and the cheese is clearly fresh. If anyone happens to be in Hunterdon County in NJ look up Joe's Pizzeria in Flemington, NJ. They are, by far, the Best Cheese steaks I have ever eaten.
