  1. [Spadaro] Eagles Won't Hang Heads Over Injuries

    I believe you are correct and that is a very positive attribute of Carson's.
  2. [Spadaro] Eagles Won't Hang Heads Over Injuries

    My humble opinion also is to let things play and do NOT trade to get some "top tier" LT. That can blow up in your face in so many ways. When you don't rely on your existing team players to step up and grow into the job, you send a bad message to the entire team. That message is that not all of you are worthy of being on the team. It becomes a team disunity or team non-building action. First bring up the next guy. If that doesn't work out for whatever reason, then seek another or different solution, which might then be a trade. But this talk about the trade dead-line is fast approaching and we need to move quickly ALWAYS fails! Especially in the long run. Also, with respect to team building, I'm very happy for how well the Eagles played against Wash. and very happy for Carson Wentz. He had an awesome game. But the "MVP" talk should basically be ignored, by him and by the team, etc. I think Carson will stay focused on the team and on the team's success and that is very good! Focus by any of the Eagles on any team-mate becoming the next MVP just is a distraction and not team building, IMHO.
  3. [Spadaro] How Will Eagles Handle The Hype Tonight?

    Much agree. Should be a great game!
  4. [News] Jim Schwartz Prepares For Potent Chiefs

    That seems about right to me too. Yes, there were mistakes mixed with great successes. But what didn't happen is much in the way of a running game. I would think that the Eagles need to considerably improve on that and in the near future.
  5. [News] Script Flipped: Eagles Win On Road

    I don't really know what's the best play or not. But the Eagles seem to be consistently winning in the time of possession. That seems like a good thing.
  6. [News] Who Is Carson Wentz, Face Of The Eagles?

    This next game against Washington is a biggie. Not just for the Eagles but for Carson as well. Obviously this is a very important game just by being against a division rival. But really there are many other measurements of the team's progress at stake. 1) is the defense better than 2016? 2) especially the revamped 2ndary? 3) is their running game on an upward tilt over 2016? 4) is the revamped receiver group better? And more explosive? 5) The O-line and D-line? The Eagles have invested a lot in order to be better in the trenches. Will they be? 6) and probably most noticeably, is the QB, Wentz, better than in 2016? The Eagles have a tough assignment coming up on Sunday. If they win and in a way that is not some kind of fluke, that will be the first real indicator, not just for me, but the for the team themselves; that all the strategies, maneuvers and hard work is paying off. Even better, if they show improvement in all areas mentioned above as well as win the game, then almost surely the rest of the NFL will quickly perceive them to be a real play-off contender. This will all be on the line in just a few days from now. But! It is an away game and very important for the Redskins too. I'm sure they know that. They will be favored to win and certainly will play very hard to ensure that outcome. It is more likely that the Eagles will lose and then there will be many who question where the Eagles are headed! Losing to the Redskins would be a real challenge for them. It is if and when the Eagles lose that we will be best able to see whether the team believes in themselves and each other or not. This IS a very BIG game for the Eagles!
  7. [News] One Notable Preseason Takeaway

    It does seem like it will be almost like a play-off game as it could determine which team makes the play-offs. Practically everyone expects a close race for winning the division with any one of the 4 teams equally likely to win it.
  8. [News] A Preseason Finale With Real Intrigue

    If I understand what you are suggesting as possible, I agree, it feels like Celek will be the odd man out, after the Eagles make the final cut down to 53. But after that final cut and assuming he isn't claimed off of waivers, could he be re-activated at some future point?
  9. [News] A Preseason Finale With Real Intrigue

    I don't fully understand all of those choices, but this sounds like the most likely one that will be made. If not, his injury isn't progressing as well as hoped.
  10. [News] Game 3: Eagles Show Promise For Season

    My reading of the "tea leaves" suggests, and this isn't too hard to suggest, that one or more receivers will be traded, if possible, for future draft picks. Given that , it makes sense to me that McGloin will be the QB vs. Jets as he has worked the most with the 2nd string receivers and gives them the best chance to look good. So try this thought on - both McGloin and a receiver will go in a package deal to some team. And who might that team be? An obvious choice is the Jets. All this suggests that the Jets vs Eagles game is partly an audition of McGloin and some WR to be traded to the Jets! That outcome would be a win-win-win. The Eagles get future draft picks for what they likely can't keep on their roster anyway. The Jets get a QB and a WR that has chemistry with that QB. The players involved land a job for 2017. It is a win-win-win.
  11. [News] Game 3: Eagles Show Promise For Season

    Can a veteran, such as Celek or Dorenbos be "exposed" to the PS for a day in order to keep Pumphrey or Clement or whomever? Then later, Pumphrey or whomever, gets moved to the PS and Celek or Dorenbos gets moved to the activate roster?
  12. [News] Game 3: Eagles Show Promise For Season

    How does one go from Philly area to ND? Oil field(s)?
  13. [News] Game 3: Eagles Show Promise For Season

    Actually, you can see Carson going through his progressions when he does that. My hunch is that the CB gets scared "sh....ess" when he sees Carson "lock" on to a receiver. "Oh my gosh, the safety isn't backing me up and I'm getting beat". That "lock on" may not be a bad thing. A fake "lock" and then fake throw could really get a corner to react badly...then delay a moment and then throw. That is a little bit of what happened on the TD to Alshon yesterday. I wish the Eagles would do that every so often; "Fake" a throw to a short receiver, then throw deep.

    No Dak is fine with me. You have found me out. I'm originally from North Dakota ( a long time ago and that is how I became an Eagle's fan after CW was drafted out of NDSU. "No Dak" is slang for "North Dakota hick" or some such. Thus I chose a handle of "EaglesFanNoDak". My brother-in-law who went to NDSU mentioned about a year ago that a player from NDSU might get drafted in the 1st round. I asked, really, what position does he play? His reply was QB. Which really surprised me. So I asked how did that come about. He said, the NDSU QB is very competitive, he is big, learns anything very quickly, and has a cannon for an arm. So that is how I got interested in the Eagles. I had no pun intention about "No Dak" but then.....whatever. Back to the Eagles, it looks like they will have some tough choices for who makes the 53-man roster.
