Would say Avery gets the nod over Hall this week....As you said would be at best pass rush specialist...Role would likely increase 

Nah...let him learn the playbook. Gets this week, then the extra bye week and then we can try and incorporate him on the game week plan. Perfect setup in many ways.

Lmao Sweat, Ostman hall were all unknown and really Ostman is still in that realm....Really Sweat seems like the only guy that could possibly be a full time starter right now 

Barnett and Sweat starting. You can only start two. So that’s that! Two young starters. Having Ostman and Hall backing up. Of coarse that’s after Graham moves on....which doesn’t seem that soon right now. But Avery doesn’t seem like a starter to me. We’ll see. I don’t want to be super judgemental before he even lines up for us. But I see him as a pass rusher...not a three down DE for us.

Against the Pats though? Tricky first game for him although the Pats OL isn't playing that well and we should bring it to Brady.

Pat's defense is their strong point.  If the offense didn't score a point... they would be like .500 or something... I saw 3-3-1 a couple days ago...lol.

Their defense has the same mist Foles had here ....lol.  all the flukes going their way.

That D has been really impressive to be fair... I mean that's a crazy record if you took away all the offenses points.

Doubt that what we will do don’t disagree just saying full expecting hall to be inactive along with Miller and Avery as DE 5

Nothing wrong with a guy just being a pass rusher if that the role we want him for....If we have guys that can start in front of him and Avery can just be that guy that can come in pin His ears back and get after the QB that’s fine....Never have to many pass rushers.

As for Ostman/Hall solid guys not sold on either....Think Miller can develop to be way better then both....Ostman and Hal remind me of Steven Means great guy great practice player tons of effort type of guys you want around during camps but not that great on game days

The goal on the DL should be better then 2017....Elite Cox above avg. Graham/Jeringan with pass rushers in Curry/Barnett/Long.

Really need that other elite talent next to Cox take the DL to the next level force teams to pick a guy to double team leaving the other with a 1 on 1.

 

Bruce Hector back to the PS is Timmy suppose to be back this week?????? Be huge for the DL

Gut feel I'd say after the bye? They'll just try and get by this week? I mean unless they promote Hector again they've got no choice now?

Always possible but Bruce played the most snaps next to Cox last week vs the bills....Would not think we would ride with Cox and two rooks

Timmy broke his foot. But he’s been on the side of practice running and working out for the last two weeks.  He’s obviously not a small guy by any stretch. So you would think his foot should be healed now. If it’s healed he should go...just my two cents.

Djax supposedly going to practice hopefully play be huge for the WR unit....Replace the no production we have gotten so far from the so called #2 WR Hollins....I had some high hopes for Hollins but of Djax keeps being plagued with injuries I’m either double downing on JJaw or going out and getting a guy like Jmatt....Just don’t think we can stick with Hollins seen a tweet that he had 0 catches in all of October(not sure if that is true or not) but he could not have had many.

Hollins has played 59% of the O snaps and in the month of Oct. had ZERO CATCHES!!!!!!!!!! His last catch was vs the Jets on 9/26 and he only had 1 that game......That is terrible production from whatever you want to consider him the #2 or 3 WR.

IDK maybe it's time to give Ward a chance.I mean it can't be any worse than zero

Sometimes you need to judge the GM by the move he didn’t make. I mean this in a positive light. I don’t want to overpay just for the sake of making a move. A fourth for Avery isn’t cheap...but at least it isn’t until 2021.

That my biggest takeaway... Patsies give up a 2 for Sanu....tooo much for that player. Seems like teams are asking for the world. In Howie I trust NOT to make the deal ....Disappointed. Gonna have to trust what we have. Let’s go.

I just don’t think the Pats have played anyone tough. Gonna be cheering for LaMar Jackson and BMore this week. We need to beat the Bears , Seagals and Patsies. Everyone got those last five as cakewalks I don’t agree.

Liked Hollins once,now seems he's dead weight to me.We can't keep non productive guys around for 3-4 years "waiting",taking up a roster spot. Noone would give a round 8 pick for him(I know there is no round 8,that's my point).Cut bait at the break,bring in someone worthy of a roster spot,or bring Ward up for a shot.Djax should be back soon,but him missing is no excuse to produce ZIP.try Ward out.If he can't cut it say goodbye along with Hollins.Good draft coming for WR's,we can get at least 2 there.Goedert is outperforming ertz,whats up with that?

Hollins value is as a STer great as the 4th or 5th option and will on occasion make a nice play he just has not been that #2 or even 3rd guy we need right now...

Think we have to do soemthing depending on Djax....Whether that is going all in on JJaw and given him more reps see if he steps up or giving Ward a legit shot or again getting Jmatt off the FA market....Best option of course would be Djax coming back but no clue how healthy he would be so need that insurance guy just in case. Really want JJaw to show more

Feel like the focus is on stopping Ertz now everyone knows he is a Wentz favorite target...If I’m a DC Taking away Ertz/Alshon First force the so to beat me with the other guys...Really nobody else is stepping up on the passing game Geodart has some Tds but also a few drops

Point is,ok so he's been hurt,but he's was paid when he was hurt,now that he i not hurt,he's not worth a hill of beans.Looking more and more like an MS2 screwup IMO

We had a full crew of WR's,yet Ertz was a stat beast.Now you can say "we don't have the WR's"  and I will throw the BS flag.Alshon is a weapon and so is AG,so you're telling me lack of 1 WR is causing Ertz stat drop?.Not buying

Not really reason we have a good ST unit is because we get guys that are good on STs....You shouldn’t undervalue the unit. Maragos, Ford, Braham(might have spelled his name wrong), Hollins we have made it a pretty important part of our team building to get ST aces
