  • 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]
  • Instant reaction: Eagles 34 @ Packers 27
    Off the back of a shock loss to the Lions at home, the Eagles were staring at a 1-3 start. Particularly after another slow start, in which they fell to an early ten point deficit, prospects looked bleak. But if there’s one thing we’ve learnt about this current Eagles crop, it’s that they’re incredibly resilient. The offensive line enjoyed it’s best game of the season, opening up some gigantic holes in the run game, and keeping Carson Wentz incredibly clean. Jim Schwartz also called a good game, opting for a conservative 2-deep safety approach against Aaron Rodgers. Offensive gameplan Run game tempo has been a big discussion over recent weeks. One reason Jordan Howard saw so few carries over the first few weeks was because the Eagles coaches wanted to stretch defenses horizontally in the run game, especially early. That all changed against the Packers, with Howard featuring early and often. The coaches produced a gameplan heavy on interior runs, pounding Green Bay’s front consistently. [… read more]
