Eagles Linc

  • Mid-season Mood
    Back-to-back losses to playoff bound teams had the Eagles slipping to a losing record. Injuries are an easy excuse, with an entire receiving corps on the treatment table. The flames were fanned by a video from former NFL quarterback Dan Orlovsky, who ruthlessly gutted the raw birds with a fowl chargrilling of the backup wideouts. He highlighted imprecise route running as the major obstacle, pointing out poor discipline from a combination of JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Mack Hollins and Greg Ward. But does throwing to such a raw receiving corps absolve Wentz and Pederson from blame? Let’s start with the quarterback, seeing as the union appears to have kicked into full PR mode. Wentz played poorly, regardless of whether he got no help from his teammates. Aside from the obvious issues with ball security, he’s doing terribly within the structure of the offense. In a number of Orlovsky’s clips, particularly the last, he delivers on that crossing route so late the defensive back has an age to break [… read more]
  • Instant Reaction: Bears 14 @ Eagles 22
    The Eagles will count outlasting the Bears a good win, even with Mitch Trubisky’s struggles at the helm in Chicago. There’s a force blowing against him right now in the Windy City, and none of the criticism appears unwarranted after Sunday’s showing. Undoubtedly there are some positives to take from back-to-back wins, but I do feel Doug Pederson allowed a struggling team to hang around instead of going for the jugular, playing somewhat conservatively when the Eagles led by two scores. The defense was equally charitable at times in the second half, busting another coverage for a long pass completion, and allowing the Bears to run a throwback Bill Cowher early-century i-formation offense to get themselves back into the game. Still, a dominant ground game could carry the team to a very merry Christmas.   Offensive gameplan The Eagles’ passing game continues to stutter, with Alshon Jeffery’s surprising struggles catching the football exacerbating the impact of Desean Jackson’s [… read more]
  • Instant Reaction: Eagles 31 @ Bills 13
    A decade ago, Sean McDermott inherited a poisoned chalice. A young, developing coach thrust into the furnace of expectation. McDermott burned, and quickly, without a job after only a couple of years as defensive coordinator of the Eagles. His unit ranked 21st in points allowed per game in 2010, a dramatic decline from Jim Johnson’s final season at the helm (4th in 2008). The unit was absolutely stacked full with talent, especially on the defensive line. The front office was partially responsible, trading away Sheldon Brown, one of the most consistent corners in the league at the time, while adding the disastrous pair of Ernie Sims and Ellis Hobbs. An eternal churn of starting linebackes however, can only be attributed to a poor assessment of his own players’ quality. We’ll wait to see if McDermott is truly an elite defensive coordinator, he’s certainly started well this year, but my instinct is to doubt he remains unable to bring the best out of top talent.   Offensive gameplan [… read more]
