Eagles Linc

  • Pocket movers, not shifty shakers
    No offseason overviews saw the defensive line as a need for the Eagles. Especially not on the interior, where the front already had the significant investments of Malik Jackson and Fletcher Cox. Yet, knowing Howie’s history, and Schwartz’s scheme, surely it shouldn’t have been such a surprise. The Birds have added an interior defensive lineman every year since Schwartz was sacked from Soldier field. Timmy Jernigan, Michael Bennett and Malik Jackson were all recruited for the singular purpose of sacks. The Eagles’ even front deploys four defensive lineman at all times, they want to take every opportunity to maximise their potential for pressure. Hargrave won’t be sitting on the bench either. Schwartz has consistently rotated on the interior throughout his tenure as the defense’s head honcho. Truthfully, having Cox and Jackson on base downs is a bit of a luxury, and Timmy Jernigan’s non-football injury scuppered any chance of securing that position for the future. Hargave is great value [… read more]
  • 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]
