We miss those guys.’ I was like, ‘Man, we’ve got to get that back.’” Those guys reappeared last Thursday in the Meadowlands. The Eagles returned to their swag-having,...

Eagles vs. Giants snap count analysis: Philadelphia forced into shifting the secondary around

Playing time tracker. Here’s a breakdown of the snap counts from the Philadelphia Eagles’ 34-13 win over the New York Giants in Week 6 of the 2018 NFL season. OFFENSE Kudos to Lane Johnson for toughing out his high ankle sprain. Thankfully the Eagles were able to give him some rest late in the game thanks to building a big lead. Wendell Smallwood took the bulk of running back snaps. He finished the game with 18 carries for 51 yards (2.8 average) and one reception for zero yards. He also was very fortunate to recover the ball he fumbled. Prior to the game, Erin Andrews...

Which Eagles' RB is replacing Jay Ajayi? For now, it's Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, and Josh Adams

With a quick turnaround, the Eagles are not in position to make a trade for a running back in time to contribute against the Giants. So this is the group they'll go with on Thursday, and perhaps going forward

Eagles place Jay Ajayi on injured reserve

Eagles place Jay Ajayi on injured reserve

Welpadelphia. Philadelphia Eagles running back Jay Ajayi is being placed on injured reserve after tearing his ACL, according to an official announcement from the team. Ajayi’s season is over. This new is, uh, unexpected. We already knew that Ajayi was playing through a fractured bone in his back. But there was no indication Ajayi had suffered an ACL tear. This development could very well mean the end of Ajayi’s Eagles career. The 25-year-old is scheduled to be a free agent this offseason. In the meantime, the Eagles are down to just Darren Sproles, Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, and...

8 things we learned from the Eagles’ loss to the Vikings

8 things we learned from the Eagles’ loss to the Vikings

Big takeaways from the game. The Philadelphia Eagles were defeated by the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, 23-21. Here’s a look at some things we learned from their second loss in a row. 1 - The Eagles can’t stop shooting themselves in the foot One of the most frustrating things about these kind of losses is that there’s no one simple fix. The Eagles just aren’t executing properly, especially in big moments. Some notable examples: Wendell Smallwood drops a wide open third down conversion that would’ve set up 1st-and-goal. Jay Ajayi fumbles in the red zone. The Eagles fail to score...

The Linc - Time for Jim Schwartz to step up

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 10/7/18. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... Eagles’ defense must be better for team to have success - NBCSPIt’s time for this Eagles’ defense to be great. It’s time for this defense to carry the football team. When you look at the Eagles’ first month, the offense’s struggles are understandable, to a great extent. Every receiver other than Nelson Agholor and every running back other than Wendell Smallwood has been hurt. There was a quarterback change two weeks into the season. The offensive line is injured and struggling....

Eagles’ red zone passing concepts remain superb

Eagles’ red zone passing concepts remain superb

Wentz found Goedert on a call we’ve seen before... The Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles have continued their success in the most important area of the field, the red zone. Last year they ranked tops in the league in converting trips to the red area into touchdowns (64%). This year they’re punching it in at an uber-efficient 70%. You can point to a positive regression to red zone running, which would be true. Wendell Smallwood’s 4-yard touchdown makes the Eagles 3 for 5 when turning runs from within 5 yards of the end zone into scores. You could also point to Carson Wentz’s...

Presenting The 60-Second Eagles Review, where we relive each and every 2018 Eagles game in no more than a minute, complete with a weekly trio of Birds MVPs: *** Some follow-up notes from Week 3: It’s probably time we stop pretending Wendell Smallwood is completely irrelevant. This guy has buried himself on the depth chart ever since he was drafted, largely because of injuries. But to act like he’s useless when he’s active is just wrong. Smallwood has always flashed the ability to get in the open field when he’s healthy. Does this mean he...
