    Week 6 Open Discussion.

    I gotta admit that this week, Dallas is playing well. Jacksonville is killing themselves too, but the Cowboys are taking advantage of that, as they should.

    Doug Pederson Press Conference

    I hope he meant that the loss was on him for failing to commit to the run game. It's been working every week and he inexplicably stops calling it. They ran it 12 times on Sunday. That's intentionally making your offense 1 dimensional, which is what every DC in the league hopes to do to you. If your team is 1 dimensional, you're gonna lose games. if you intentionally make yourself 1 dimensional, you're gonna forfeit games. The Eagles are averaging over 5 yards a carry last time I looked. I just don't understand what he's thinking. Smallwood isn't the most dynamic back in the league for sure, but you can give him 8-12 carries a game. Same for Ajayi. Same for Clement. A 3/1 pass/run ratio over the last several weeks is reminding me of the Eagles' biggest problem of the not so distant past. It has to stop, and stay stopped, especially since this team is missing their #2 and #4 WR. I'm not against passing the ball, but it can't be almost every down. Even at a 65% completion rate on a first down pass, you're still looking at 2nd & 10 a third of the time. One other thing. What ever happened to the 7 yard slant in this version of the WCO. Do we not have 1 WR that can run that route and catch the ball. It's a blitz beater; always has been. The soft zone coverage isn't working either. I know Schwartz has a great deal of autonomy with the defense, but Doug needs to step in and collaborate with Jim to make sensible changes. Some of it is personnel assignments and some of it is schematic. The bend but don't break is just bending too far. The results are less than they should be. I guess I'm just frustrated watching an entire team perform well under their capabilities. I hope they get back to football basics. Work the fundamentals, take ownership, and execute properly.

    OBJ is the biggest loser I've ever had to to root for...

    Trade his a** to the Cowboys. Jerruh likes problem children with marketable swag...
  4. Sorry you had to watch that mess in person.

    Andy's Chiefs are smoking the Jags.
  6. Welcome and Enjoy!! It's a must win for both teams so, it should be a really good one!

    Week 4: Ravens @ Steelers

    Ravens need to start losing. I want that 2nd round pick of theirs that the Eagles own to be inside of the 45th pick.
  8. Even if they keep their slot receiver (Agholor) they have to add a burner with some size/strength at the #2 position and a viable replacement for Jeffrey in his role as above the rim possession receiver. I think the Jeffrey backup is currently playing at NC State (Kelvin Harmon, 6'3" 220 lbs.) I haven't looked at the speed guys that might be there in the 2nd round. They're also gonna need an OT, an OG, a S, a CB, and maybe a HB. They'll need a blend of FA, the draft, and maybe a trade to get all they need. It's doable, but Howie's going to have to work some of his magic cap-wise, especially with Carson's deal looming either during or after next season. There's a lot of work to do in the player personnel department.

    Dak vs. Wentz

    I should've said as the 3rd QB. Foles will move on. Sudfeld will beat him out for #2

    Dak vs. Wentz

    One day Dak Prescott will be Carson's backup

    Dallass

    They can keep seeing things through Jerry Jones' eyes forever as far as I'm concerned. Thank goodness only the good die young...LOL.

    He's struggling again today.

    Week 3 Open Discussion.

    Every year the first month is about as unpredictable as anything could be. Some bad teams figure it out and get good and some good teams fall off a cliff. This year is no different...LOL.

    Jimmy Garoppolo

    THAT would be interesting.
