Donovan McNabb is already talking about the Eagles potentially needing to replace Carson Wentz

Donovan McNabb is already talking about the Eagles potentially needing to replace Carson Wentz

No. 5 continues to be skeptical about No. 11. Donovan McNabb recently appeared on The Zach Gelb Show on CBS Sports Radio. The former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback touched on a number of NFL topics but most interestingly he discussed thoughts on his former team and their quarterback situation with Carson Wentz. McNabb believes the pressure is on Wentz to at least take the Eagles to the NFC Championship Game before 2021: Q: We know Nick Foles won the Super Bowl for them two years ago, Carson Wentz was unbelievable in that season before the unfortunate injury, got banged up again last...

5 bold predictions for Eagles’ 2019 draft

5 bold predictions for Eagles’ 2019 draft

eyeballs and fire emojis It’s that time of year, gang. Time for the most absurd of takes. Time for Daniel Jones = QB1. Time for Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock locking themselves in a dimly-lit conference room and Greco-Roman wrestling over how high to rank Drew Lock. I can’t prove the last one happened, but you can’t prove it didn’t. Let’s call it a draw and move on. The NFL Draft is 10% draft and 90% pageant. It’s a live-action melodrama in the worst way, and I spend all season thirsting after it just to be driven mad by the excruciating drumroll of foolish hot-takery beforehand....

The Linc - Jordan Howard was the second best red zone RB in 2018

The Linc - Jordan Howard was the second best red zone RB in 2018

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 4/20/19. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... The NFL’s best red-zone running backs in 2018 - PFFJORDAN HOWARD, Philadephia Eagles (formerly with the CHICAGO BEARS) – 74.6 RED-ZONE GRADE. Jordan Howard had a relatively quiet year in Chicago, but he did help his team a ton in the red zone. On his 34 rushing attempts last season, Howard ran for a first down or a touchdown on 44% of his carries, which tied for third at the position. In addition to having a knack for moving the chains, Howard also averaged 2.09 yards after contact per...

NFL Mock Draft 2019: Green Bay Packers pick Hollywood

With the 30th overall pick in the 2019 Bleeding Green Nation community mock draft, Green Bay Packers GM Kephas selects ... Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma Before we dive in, I want you to remember the following names: Donnie Avery Devin Thomas James Hardy Eddie Royal Jerome Simpson A gold star unto you if you know the significance of these names (and bonus points if you know the name I left out). The Pick But let’s start where we all start: the draft board. You already know the pick, so how’d we get here? I’ll say this up front: I’m no scout. I like to watch clips of players to get a...

2019 NFL Mock Draft: Kansas City Chiefs choose Nasir Adderley

2019 NFL Mock Draft: Kansas City Chiefs choose Nasir Adderley

With the 29th overall pick in the 2019 Bleeding Green Nation community mock draft, Kansas City Chiefs GM Boxer Madness selects ... Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware When I was first awarded the opportunity to make the Kansas City Chiefs’ first round pick, I thought it was a great opportunity to channel my inner-Andy Reid. I have always watched Andy’s drafting philosophy with a sort of morbid curiosity. It has just always seemed that no matter the round, if a player was available that filled a need, was the proper value, and was generally agreed by everyone to be a no-brainer pick, Andy would...

There’s buzz the Giants could draft Daniel Jones with the No. 6 overall pick

There’s buzz the Giants could draft Daniel Jones with the No. 6 overall pick

#LongLiveDaveGettleman Here’s a rumor for you to chew on as we’re now only six days away from the 2019 NFL Draft. According to Charles Robinson, there is at least one team with Duke’s Daniel Jones as their No. 1 quarterback on their board. Which team? Robinson had this to say: “And y’all know exactly who that team is.” Oh baby. He’s talking about the New York Giants! Indeed, Jones has often been connected to the Giants leading up this year’s draft. He’s an incredibly popular pick for New York at No. 17 overall. But if Jones is truly the Giants’ preferred heir to Eli...

Eagles land “the biggest steal” in the SB Nation’s writer mock draft

Eagles land “the biggest steal” in the SB Nation’s writer mock draft

A dream come true ... in a fictional setting. Every year, the NFL team site writers here at SB Nation get together to do a mock draft. The setup is simple: each writer plays GM for their team and makes their first round pick. There are no trades. Last year I had the Philadelphia Eagles taking Connor Williams at No. 32. He obviously went to the Dallas Cowboys in the real draft at No. 50 overall so you can say I was guilty of reaching. I’m confident my selection in this year’s SB Nation NFL writers’ mock draft is no reach. My first-round pick for the Eagles this year is ... Christian...

Former Eagles scout talks potential targets for Philly in the 2019 NFL Draft

Former Eagles scout talks potential targets for Philly in the 2019 NFL Draft

Interesting insight. Former Philadelphia Eagles scout and current NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah (Mike Mayock’s replacement at NFLN) held a conference call on Thursday to talk about next week’s 2019 NFL Draft. Jeremiah has some unique insight into how the Eagles’ front office thinks given that he’s worked with both Howie Roseman and Joe Douglas, so it’s always worth hearing what he has to say. Jeremiah answered some questions directly about the Eagles and also touched on draft prospects that could interest Philly. The case for trading back Jeremiah opened his call with a...

The Linc - Carson Wentz excels when throwing to the routes that DeSean Jackson runs best

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 4/19/19. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... Can DeSean Jackson bring Carson Wentz back into the MVP conversation in 2019? - PFFAs a deep threat, Jackson’s playmaking ability is unmatched, and it is undoubtedly something Wentz has been yearning for. However, as dominant as Jackson has been overall on his deep routes, perhaps his greatest skill is his ability to attack defenses deep in a variety of ways, not just on vertical streaks. On non-go routes of 20-plus yards, Jackson has netted a 98.9 receiving grade, trailing only Julio Jones in...

First round quarterback fits in the 2019 NFL Draft

First round quarterback fits in the 2019 NFL Draft

The QB Scho Show #22! Each day that passes is another day closer to the truth about where this quarterback class gets drafted. With several teams in need of an upgrade or long-term solutions, things could get weird during the first night of the 2019 NFL Draft. In his latest mock draft, Daniel Jeremiah had a total of four quarterbacks going in the first round. On The QB Scho Show #22, I asked Mark Schofield to give his thoughts on the fits. Here’s the four we covered: Kyler Murray (Oklahoma) to the Arizona Cardinals at #1 overall. Daniel Jones (Duke) to the New York Giants at #6...

NFL Mock Draft 2019: Los Angeles Chargers get beefier

With the 28th overall pick in the 2019 Bleeding Green Nation community mock draft, Los Angeles Chargers GM LBCeaglesFan! selects ... Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson The Chargers made large strides last year that no one saw. The Chiefs were amazing fans and media alike with their high scoring offense and starting 4-0 while the Chargers were 2-2 (and were down 17-6 in game 5). People were already writing them off as “same old chargers”. But the chargers fought and persevered. While the chiefs were putting up 50 on Monday Night football, the Chargers were stringing together a 6-game winning...

What to expect when the Eagles make draft day trades

What to expect when the Eagles make draft day trades

Trades are coming 254 players will be selected in this year’s draft. Nobody knows where all of them will wind up. But what we do know is that there will be trades. And the Eagles will make some of them. As we do every year, let’s look at what we can expect the Eagles to get in a trade back, or be able to reach to in a trade up. While most people use charts, I like to look at trades that have actually happened. Trade value charts are theory based on reality, looking at what’s actually happened is entirely reality. This study is limited to drafts since 2011, when the CBA imposed a...

ESPN’s latest mock draft has three new picks for the Eagles

Seven more days to go. The 2019 NFL Draft is only one week away. The end of the tunnel is in sight. Until then, we still have mock drafts to pass the time. ESPN’s latest mock features Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay alternating picks for the first three rounds. These analysts are making picks they think teams SHOULD make as opposed to making picks they think teams WILL make. Here’s a look the Eagles’ haul: 25. Philadelphia Eagles — McShay’s pick: Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State. Simmons could redshirt in 2019, but in time, he could fill the Tim Jernigan role smack in the...

2019 NFL Mock Draft: Oakland Raiders take everyone’s favorite running back

With the 27th overall pick in the 2019 Bleeding Green Nation community mock draft, Oakland Raiders GM SLC Eagle selects ... Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama “You don’t draft running backs in the first round”, we’ve all heard it endlessly on the message boards. If you want that instantaneous comment section cred, you go offensive line here. You say the Raiders just dumped Pro Bowl guard Kelechi Osemele for peanuts. Options such as Chris Lindstrom is still available. The problem is, Raiders fans remember last year and the reach for Kolton Miller and I think Lindstrom is really a second round...
