Fletcher Cox calls lack of national recognition ‘disrespectful’ - ESPNEagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox called a lack of national recognition for his level of play “disrespectful” and said he is using it for fuel as he pursues Defensive Player of the Year honors this season. ”Very motivating. I promise you it is http://www.philadelphiaeaglesteamonlines.com/malcolm-jenkins-jersey ,” he said after practice Thursday. Cox has come out of the gates on fire this season. He has 2 1/2 sacks, 14 quarterback hits/hurries (six more than the next-closest Eagles player, Chris Long) and four tackles for loss through two games, according to stats kept by the team.Eagles vs. Colts Game Preview: Five questions and answers with the enemy - BGNThe Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts are set to play each other this Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. In order to preview the Eagles’ Week 3 game, I reached out to our associates over at Stampede Blue. The cunning Chris Blystone (@chrisblystone) took the time to answer my questions about the upcoming tilt. Let’s take a look at his answers.Safety Blitz with Malcolm Jenkins: ‘We don’t have a Super Bowl hangover’ - PhillyVoice“We don’t have a Super Bowl hangover. For me, personally, there is nothing to do with a Super Bowl hangover. We just made bad mistakes. That one loss doesn’t change who we are and where we’re going. We’ve been here before. Last year against Kansas City, we got beat up and made it look close at the end — but moved on and learned. This isn’t any different.”Eagle Eye: The Frank Reich Effect - PE.comFrom a philosophical standpoint, this is a team that wants to get the ball out quickly. The Colts will take their shots downfield (and I expect that they will in this game) but that’s not really their identity right now, even with an explosive guy like T.Y. Hilton at wide receiver. Reich wants to give Luck as much information as possible before the snap so that when he drops back he can get rid of the ball at the top of his drop and move the chains. The Colts will mix up their use of personnel (they love lining up in 12 personnel packages), formations (they work in a lot of empty looks with five eligible receivers spread out across the width of the field), and pace (they’ll mix in some hurry-up modes here and there). They made a killing the last two weeks in attacking the flats with short, quick passes, and I think they’ll go that route again on Sunday.From 13 to 2: The inside story of how the Eagles moved up twice to draft Carson Wentz - The AthleticThe Eagles spent some time with Wentz at the Senior Bowl, with DeFilippo testing his knowledge of football concepts on a white board. The early returns were, frankly, too good. As Wentz impressed, Roseman’s job got harder. “I think after the Senior Bowl, it was pretty clear to us that it wasn’t realistic to think, ‘Hey, we’ll just sit at 13,’” Roseman says. “Hope is not a strategy. And so, let’s figure out a way to go get the pick and then at that point, do more research. We felt good about where we were in that point in the process. We didn’t feel good about where we were from a draft-selection standpoint.”Eagles’ Nick Foles prepared to take move from Super Bowl MVP to backup quarterback with grace - Inquirer”Even if you know something is coming, once you’re in it, there is an adjustment,” Foles said Thursday by his locker — a different setting than the starting quarterback’s news conference. “But realizing it is about the team, it’s not about the individual. Carson being healthy, and me going to a different role, helping the scout team, doing what I can to help the team, but from a different role. Focus on that, sort of embrace that day to day.” Foles said the biggest adjustment will be to keep his mind from wandering to other possibilities. He knows his role. He must help Wentz during the week and on the sideline. He must run the scout-team offense to help the defense prepare. He must be ready to enter the game in an emergency, but if the Eagles have their way, Wentz will be the starter for the rest of the season – and the rest of the decade.NFL Week 3 FOX Colts @ Eagles Preview - PFFIn 2017, the Eagles’ defense sent six or more pass-rushers after the quarterback 65 times, which tied for the most in the league.Jordan Matthews explains criticism of former Eagles’ training staff - NBCSPOn Wednesday Youth Sidney Jones Jersey , after his first practice with the Eagles, Matthews said he felt articles about those comments misconstrued his meaning, and he said he called former Eagles trainer Chris Peduzzi — who stepped down in February — to explain them. “When you get misdiagnosed, nobody does that on purpose, and I didn’t like how that was kind of worded,” he said. “It was a mistake, that’s why it’s called a misdiagnosis. I didn’t say they lied. Things get seen wrong. Someone may look at an MRI and miss something and something was missed, that’s all that happened, so when I went to Buffalo, they had doctors who saw it. I’m just not the type to go tweet about junk or anything like that. Once the story ran I called Peduzzi myself and let him know, ‘OK, look, I was not trying to make it seem like you guys did that on purpose.’ It was an honest mistake. It was just what happened, it was unfortunate, but it was life.”More than a year later, Jordan Matthews returns to Philadelphia Eagles with new perspective - PennLive“I really realized now I took some of that stuff for granted,” Matthews said. “And so just the humility aspect of it, taking every single day, being thankful for it. Then, from a guy at the very bottom of the roster to the guy at the top, understand like, man, I could be either one. I could be that guy one day, I could be that guy one day, so just honestly working with that attitude every single day, so it’s been a real blessing for me.”Injury Report: Colts missing several key players as matchup with the Eagles looms - Stampede BlueMore concerning however, is the potential loss of someone like Jack Doyle. While the tight end group is a strength, this is the toughest defensive line the Colts have faced yet, and Doyle played a big role in the blocking help that made last week’s victory possible. His loss in both blocking and the passing game are tough to replace. Anthony Castonzo also appears to be likely to miss more time, having aggravated his hamstring injury. Based on the way he was moving against Washington, Marlon Mack might have done the same. Neither of these guys are a huge concern, Castonzo because it is not entirely a surprise and the offensive line has done really well against quality defenses so far. Mack because Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines have been valuable contributors to this point already. Regardless, the Colts facing perhaps the toughest opponent on their schedule without a bunch of their key players is definitely less than ideal.Hue Jackson scoffs at notion of stolen Philly Special - PFT“We did not steal that from them,” Jackson told reporters after the victory. “Please. I know everybody wants to think that. We have had that in our back pocket for a while. Go check my tricks from before, and go check [offensive coordinator Todd Haley’s] tricks from before. We all have them.Image
It is just when you pull them out and use them. That is what that is.”Browns fans finally open those Bud Light fridges to celebrate a win - SB NationFree beer is free beer, and Clevelanders earned this one....Social Media Information:BGN Facebook Page: Click here to like our pageBGN Twitter: Follow @BleedingGreenBGN Manager: Brandon Lee Gowton: Follow @BrandonGowtonBGN Radio Twitter: Follow @BGN_Radio With Week 10 of the NFL season in the books, it’s time look at how various media outlets have ranked the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles in their NFL power rankings. It’s always interesting to see how the Eagles stack up from an outside perspective. But first Youth Cameron Johnston Jersey , let’s start by revisiting mine.Bleeding Green Nation18 - Philadelphia Eagles - The Eagles came out flat in a game where their season was essentially on the line. Embarrassing. Hard to say the Eagles’ coaching staff is doing a great job this season. Injury issues aren’t helping, either. (LW: 11)SB Nation16 - The Eagles have offered up some small glimpses of hope this year, but then they do things like lose to the Cowboys at home on primetime television. Philly hasn’t had a convincing win this season; their biggest victory was defeating the 2-7 Giants by 24. Other than that, they’ve won two games by six points and one game by four points. Consider us unimpressed by the defending Super Bowl champs. (LW: 10)ESPN13 - Defining stat: 7. That’s the total number of takeaways they’ve generated, which is tied for 27th in the NFL with the Giants, Raiders and Ravens. Jim Schwartz’s unit has been able to limit scoring -- the Eagles rank sixth in opponent points per game (20.3) -- but the inability to force turnovers has Philly running at a minus-6 in the takeaway/giveaway department. (LW: 9)NFL.com19 - The season is not over in Philadelphia, although the Eagles really needed a win on Sunday night. The defense just couldn’t force a stop in the second half, failing to corral Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott at every turn. The Eagles made up for it by not covering. It’s a wonder how Philly’s defense ranked so well in scoring defense entering the game, because it sure hasn’t played like that brand of unit in several games. There was “Fitzmagic the Gathering” in Tampa in Week 2, the fourth-down disasters at Tennessee in Week 4, the myriad stumbles at home against the Vikings the following week and the three fourth-quarter touchdown marches by the Panthers in Week 7. Finally, there was letting the offensively stunted Cowboys move the ball at will in the second half the other night. Maybe if Carson Wentz doesn’t throw that fourth-down pass behind Zach Ertz, all that wouldn’t have mattered. But he did, and it does. (LW: 13)CBS Sports17 - They hardly look like the Super team from last year. They have to pick it up after losing to Dallas, but will be challenged on the road against the Saints to do that. (LW: 12)Pro Football Talk15 - Just when we thought they were in, they pushed themselves back out. (LW: 9)Yahoo! Sports15 - The Eagles haven’t looked right all season. The cluster injuries at cornerback are a concern, and I’m not sure how they overcome that this Sunday at the Saints. They probably need to pull some upsets if they’re going to make the playoffs. (LW: 9)Washington Post16 - So much for the notion that the Eagles were about to go on a second-half run to take control of the NFC East. The performance against the Cowboys wasn’t good at all. The offense simply can’t score enough points, and WR Golden Tate made little impact in his first game with the team. The Eagles play Sunday at New Orleans, not exactly a great place to try to get their issues worked out. (LW: 9)Bleacher Report14 - The Philadelphia Eagles—and their title defense—are officially in big trouble. It’s not solely a matter of the team’s seven-point home loss to the Cowboys, although that’s a big problem in and of itself. The Eagles have already lost two more games than all of last season, and Philly finds itself two games back of the Redskins in the NFC East. There are even bigger issues. The pass defense has become a serious liability, with top corner Ronald Darby going down against the Cowboys. The running game has all but been abandoned for a simple enough reason: The Eagles can’t run the ball with any consistency. Then there’s the schedule. My oh my, the schedule. Of the seven games the Eagles have left, five come against teams that are currently in first place, including two meetings with Washington and trips to L.A. and New Orleans to face the Rams and Saints. At this point, it looks like a long shot for Philly to even make the playoffs. (LW: 9)Sporting News15 - The Eagles are not running the ball well, having major defensive lapses and not winning at home. The only way they somewhat resemble the Super Bowl 52 champs is the play of Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz. (LW: 11)Pro Football Weekly12 - Worst nine-game start for defending champ in a decade. (LW: 9)Reddit16 - It’s time for Philadelphia to admit that this isn’t a good football team. Call it “Super Bowl Hangover” or “Offensive and Defensive Ineptitude”, the story is the same: 4-5, third place in the division, and 2 games behind the division-leading Redskins. The Eagles’ projected chance to make the playoffs plummeted below 30% following the humiliating loss...at home...to Dallas...on SNF.. (LW: 12)Mile High Report17 - Look, I get it, it’s a divisional game and the Cowboys play you tough. Its why you wouldn’t be dinged too harshly for barely winning AT HOME, but you didn’t. You lost! And not just the game, you lost your best CB for the year. Sorry Philly, this is likely as high as you get the rest of the year. (LW: 13)Sports Illustrated10 - No explanation (LW: 9)...AnalysisThe rankings range from as high as 10 to as low as 19. The most common rankings are 15 and 16. The average ranking is 15.1, which is down nearly five spots from last week’s average of 10.3.The Eagles are a mediocre football team. It’s that simple.
