13 things we learned about the Eagles from OTAs and minicamp

Thoughts on the Birds. The Philadelphia Eagles wrapped up their 2018 spring offseason workout program last week. We’re now in the dead zone until training camp begins in late July. Here’s a final look at 13 things we learned about the Eagles based on watching their OTAs and minicamp practices. 1 - Mostly avoided injuries Getting through spring practices without suffering new injuries is the number one goal. Doug Pederson even said as much. Unfortunately, the Eagles suffered a season-ending injury on the first day of OTAs when Paul Worrilow tore his ACL. But while that’s a bummer,...

Matt Jones has a chance to revive his career with the Eagles

Matt Jones has a chance to revive his career with the Eagles

“Watch out” for this Eagles running back. The Philadelphia Eagles signed veteran free agent running back Matt Jones earlier this offseason. Jones hasn’t lived up to expectations to this point after being selected with a third-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Now with his third team within the span of a year, it’s time to do or die. And for Jones, there still might be some hope. Signs point to Jones being the potential favorite for the fourth running back job behind Jay Ajayi, Darren Sproles, and Corey Clement. .@JohnBarchard has said on @BGN_Radio that he heard one Eagles coach...

Ranking all 32 offensive lines by pass-blocking efficiency - PFFThe Eagles fielded one of the best offensive lines in the NFL a season ago. Their line play was a big reason their season culminated with a Super Bowl victory. All told, they allowed 154 quarterback pressures over 636 passing plays, which included just 96 hurries, the third-fewest surrendered by an offensive line. The unit was solidified by guard Brandon Brooks, who tied for seventh among guards during the regular season with a...

NFL Analyst Ranks All-Time Eagles

Did Adam Rank get it right? Who is the best Philadelphia Eagles players of all-time and who would coach them? That’s what the folks over at NFL.com tried to answer in their “All-Time XI” series focusing on the NFC East. Adam Rank was the poor soul selected to tell us what to think about our legends, and here are the results. 1) Chuck Bednarik, C/LB (1949-1962) 2) Randall Cunningham, QB (1985-1995) 3) Brian Dawkins, S (1996-2008) 4) Reggie White, DE (1985-1992) 5) Steve Van Buren, RB (1944-1951) 6) Tommy McDonald, WR (1957-1963) 7) Al Wistert, OT (1944-1951) 8) Pete Pihos, WR...

10 takeaways from the Eagles’ spring practices

10 takeaways from the Eagles’ spring practices

From The Eagles. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the Eagles are going to contend in 2018. I know, I know, I’m really going out on a limb here. The roster is deep with young talent. The high-end talent is as good as any in the league, starting at the quarterback position. Head coach Doug Pederson managed his weary veterans in the spring and they will come back fresh in the summer for Training Camp and the preseason. Other than losing linebacker Paul Worrilow with a knee injury, it was a pretty terrific spring for the Eagles, who finished their mandatory minicamp last week and now are...

Madden Gives Eagles a Massive Rating... Or Do They?

EA source sheds light on leaked ratings EA Sports’ Madden ’19 hits shelves August 10th but the ratings have leaked nearly two months early, according to the internet. There’s a twist coming, but first take a look at how the teams stack up. That’s a massive rating for the defending Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles. Plus they have the Los Angeles Rams with a lower rating than teams like the Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders. Surely, there must be some mistake, right? Not regarding the Eagles of course, but the Cowboys and Raiders over the Rams is a scorching hot...

A local kid from Glassboro, NJ, the Eagles signed Clement as a UDFA following the 2017 NFL Draft. At the suggestion of RB coach Duce Staley, Clement cut some weight to make him more explosive – he was more of a grinder in college. Clement responded with a nice rookie season, and a heroic Super Bowl performance (100 receiving yards, 1 TD). He posted 74/321/4 rushing (4.34...

Relive the Eagles’ first Super Bowl win with this cool digital poster!

Relive the Philadelphia Eagles first Super Bowl victory with this cool data viz. The Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl win has certainly changed our lives forever. Perhaps it will even serve as a defining feature for a new generation of Eagles fans. Dialing down the hyperbole a bit, the win has presented me with opportunities I would not have had otherwise. Here is one of them. A few weeks ago I came across a data viz created by Adam McCann. He’s a New York Giants fan, but let’s not hold that against him (he’s a cool guy). McCann visualized the plays from the Giants Super Bowl 42 win...

Lane Johnson Takes Aim at Pro Football Focus

Lane Johnson Takes Aim at Pro Football Focus

Is there a new offensive line grading/evaluation system coming? The validity of Pro Football Focus’ grading system has long been debated. While they offer more in the way of advanced analytics through various membership programs, they will always be tied to those grades. They’re a conveniently simple number, wrapped in a neat package that casual fans either appreciate or despise. Fans can point to those grades to confirm their bias, they can blow them off completely when they disagree, or they can dig further into the advanced analytics to understand how they arrived at that number. The...

Doug Pederson names 6 Eagles players who stood out during spring practices

A couple of guys have caught the coach’s eye. Prior to the Philadelphia Eagles’ final minicamp practice on Thursday, Super Bowl winning head coach Doug Pederson was asked about the “down-the-depth-chart players” who have “emerged or jumped out” to him during spring workouts. Pederson named a total of six guys in his answer. I went into this off-season wanting to look at a lot of our younger players, obviously, from a year ago. I think guys like Rashard Davis and Greg Ward come to mind, Shelton Gibson come to mind, that have had really good springs. Even on the defensive side,...
