How the Eagles can Compete in 2016

How the Eagles can Compete in 2016

  When the Eagles traded with the Browns to move up to select Carson Wentz, the overall feeling was a mixed. Yes, there’s excitement, to potentially land a franchise quarterback, and end the annual question of “can (insert average quarterback’s name here) do enough with the supporting cast around him to lead the Eagles to the Super Bowl?” While there’s excitement around Wentz, there is also a depressing cloud hanging over Eagles’ fans head when thinking about the immediate future….

Film Room: Isaac Seumalo

Film Room: Isaac Seumalo

I’ll be honest, I had no idea who Isaac Seumalo was when the Eagles picked him. So watching him for this piece was the first I had ever seen of him. Considering a lot of people had never heard of him, the reaction to the pick on my timeline was actually pretty good as I think people knew how badly we needed offensive line help. I watched the two games of Seumalo on Draft Breakdown and a couple of other…

Eagles new DB Jalen Mills is a Day 3 Steal

Eagles new DB Jalen Mills is a Day 3 Steal

It’s not very often that a talented early-to-mid-round prospect falls to the tail end of the 7th round. In fact, there are really only a few circumstances that would justify such a slip: either (A) the prospect suffered an injury that has teams weary of banking a more valuable pick on someone that might not see the field for the foreseeable future, or (B) said prospect has had an off-the-field incident (or incidents) that has caused his stock to drop,…

The Eagles Running Back Situation

The Eagles Running Back Situation

The date is March 12, 2015. DeMarco Murray has just agreed to a 5 year, 42 million dollar contract and has essentially signed on to be the Eagles’ feature running back for the next half decade. Following a burdensome 392 carry, 1,845 yard campaign, the 2014 NFL rushing champion’s arrival is coupled with the signing of another starting running back and former first round pick, Ryan Mathews. The collective thought across the organization is that, with the addition of these…

Film Room: Eric Rowe, Man Coverage

Talking about Eric Rowe’s rookie season isn’t easy. Whereas everyone would agree that Nelson Agholor had a disappointing rookie season (I wrote a film room piece about Agholor too here) a lot of Eagles fans would say Rowe had a good rookie season. Yet when you step back and look at it, Rowe couldn’t really get on the field early on as Nolan Carroll beat him out and the Eagles didn’t want him to play in the slot. He came…

Eagles Fans Must Be Patient With Carson Wentz

Eagles Fans Must Be Patient With Carson Wentz

Let’s jump straight to it. The Eagles traded the Cleveland Browns for the 2nd overall pick in the 2016 draft. The Eagles also received the Browns’ 4th round pick in exchange for a 1st, 3rd and 4th in 2016, a 1st in 2017, and a 2nd in 2018. It’s a hefty price, but for the Eagles, they see this as a rare opportunity to not sacrifice too much of your future and land a potential franchise quarterback. I had someone…

Film Room: Nelson Agholor’s Route Running

Film Room: Nelson Agholor’s Route Running

Before last years draft, there was a big discussion about whether Nelson Agholor could be an outside receiver in the NFL amongst a lot of draft analysts. I thought he could be based on what I had seen of him but others saw him as a slot receiver only. After the Eagles drafted him with the 20th pick, it was clear he was going to play on the outside and pretty much attempt to replace Maclin. Agholor’s rookie season was…

The Eagles should not be afraid to trade up for Carson Wentz

The Eagles should not be afraid to trade up for Carson Wentz

Remember the 2014 draft? That was a fun draft. The Texans needed a quarterback. However, there was this generational talent available to them in Jadeveon Clowney. So they took him instead of reaching for a quarterback who probably wasn’t worth the first pick. Smart right? The Jaguars on the other hand, reached for a QB at pick number 3 who wasn’t even considered to be the best QB in the draft by most analysts, Blake Bortles. Draft twitter erupted. I…
