Weapon X Mailbag: Have your expectations for the Eagles modified after two weeks? – BGN
The staff has exceeded my expectations up to now although. I actually didn’t foresee the Eagles dominating Atlanta on the street in Week 1 with a 26-point win. I wouldn’t have imagined that first-time defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon would maintain Kyle Shanahan’s San Francisco offense to simply 17 factors. I stand by my prediction that the staff will win the division, however possibly not all of their wins are agonizingly shut video games. The offense displayed that they’ll execute at a excessive degree in Week 1. Jalen Hurts illustrated that he can use each his arm and his legs to make performs, although that play was inconsistent towards the 49ers. DeVonta Smith has the juice. Maybe my expectations ought to change with the Brandon Graham and Brandon Brooks accidents, however the Eagles have constructed up rock strong depth alongside each the offensive and defensive traces. It wants to show into a giant 2021 for Josh Sweat, Derek Barnett and Landon Dickerson.

NFC Hierarchy/Obituary: Week 3 – PhillyVoice
10) Eagles (1-1): Let’s recap the four-play sequence after the Eagles obtained 1st and Aim from the 1 towards the Niners: 1st down: The Eagles rolled Jalen Hurts to the best, with one man (Zach Ertz) within the sample. He was lined, there was nowhere else to go together with the soccer, and Hurts needed to throw it away. Throw that rubbish out of the playbook. 2nd down: Run. However not only a “blow them off the ball and punch it in from the 1” run. Nope. Isaac Seumalo is pulling to the best, however he will get blown up, Miles Sanders has to hurdle him, and it’s a lack of 2. third down: Foofy run name extensive wherein Hurts has the ball in Sanders’ intestine, and has the choice to let Sanders run to the pylon, or preserve it himself and and lower it again inside. Throw that rubbish out of the playbook. 4th down: Some bastardized model of the Philly Particular, once more, wherein there’s just one man (Hurts) out within the route. I’m not one to micromanage play calling, however… yikes. That sequence most likely price the Eagles a 2-0 begin.

Which Eagles need to step up in Brandon Graham’s absence? Start with Fletcher Cox – ESPN
Cox has lengthy been thought of the cornerstone of the protection and one in every of finest linemen within the recreation. However his manufacturing has dipped since his profession yr in 2018, when he posted 10.5 sacks and 34 QB hits. He has totaled 10 sacks and 19 QB hits over the past two seasons mixed. He has been shut out of each classes via two video games in 2021. However Cox, 30, impacts the sport in ways in which aren’t at all times mirrored within the stat sheet. Offensive traces shift his manner and infrequently double-team him. Cox has been double-teamed on 26 pass-rush performs in 2021, probably the most of any Eagles defender. That opens up alternatives for gamers like Javon Hargrave, who has been on hearth (2 sacks, 4 TFL, 4 QB hits) up to now this season. However elite linemen draw loads of consideration and nonetheless discover a strategy to produce. Cox is making $17 million a yr. He must get again to being a game-wrecker, whereas getting into the center of the circle because the staff’s major chief on protection.

Lots of Quez Watkins in this week’s Roob’s Eagles Stats – NBCSP
Sixth-round magic: Watkins’ 117 yards are the second-most in franchise historical past on two catches. Bobby Walston had a 2-for-127 recreation towards the Playing cards at Franklin Discipline in 1961. Walston had catches of 59 and 68 yards in that recreation however no touchdowns, though he did kick two area targets. From 1984 via 2019, the Eagles by no means had a WR drafted within the sixth spherical or later with a 100-yard recreation. However their solely two 100-yard video games the final two years have been by sixth-round picks — Travis Fulgham vs. the Steelers final yr and Watkins Sunday. Clamping down: The Eagles have allowed 23 factors, the fewest they’ve allowed via two video games since 2005 (17) and seventh-fewest in franchise historical past. It’s the second-fewest they’ve allowed within the final 40 years. Solely the Panthers (21) have allowed fewer this yr.

Welcome to Beat Dallas Week! News and notes ahead of the Monday night showdown – PE.com
1. How do the Eagles change Brandon Graham on the sphere? I defined yesterday the implications of shedding Graham for the season. It’s greater than an on-field loss, however for the needs of this house, let’s give attention to that. Who replaces Graham’s power and his manufacturing? Who steps in with that veteran presence and institutional information? The promising information is that the Eagles have closely addressed the defensive position, so there are alternatives right here. Josh Sweat, in his fourth season and definitely no stranger to big-game reps, will play rather a lot. Sweat has performed 47 % of the snaps to date, rotating with starter Derek Barnett. Veteran Ryan Kerrigan has his recreation legs after lacking most of Coaching Camp with a damaged thumb, and he performs with large depth and power. Milton Williams, the third-round draft choose, labored all through Coaching Camp and the preseason on the sting, so he has a great grasp of the scheme. He’s an even bigger physique who can set the sting towards the run and might provide energy and quickness off the ball within the pass-rush recreation. Rookie Tarron Jackson can be going to need to step up together with his velocity as a move rusher. Look, accidents stink. And shedding Graham is a blow, little question about it. The Eagles have stocked the defensive position for a cause, so now we see simply what sort of depth the staff has right here.

Streaming choices: Dallas Goedert, PHI vs. DAL. As famous above, Goedert’s fellow tight finish, Zach Ertz, has been recognized with COVID-19 and it’s unknown if he’ll be obtainable to play in Week 3. QB Jalen Hurts has focused the tight finish place on 20% of throws, and if Ertz is out for this contest, the lions share of these targets must be headed to Goedert.

Cowboys 2021 rookie report: Micah Parsons saves the day after position switch – Blogging The Boys
A second of appreciation is required for Micah Parsons. That also is probably not sufficient. Parsons simply performed in his second full soccer recreation since December of 2019, after which was requested to play nearly completely on the sting as a move rusher. The final time he did that, Parsons was nonetheless in highschool. However he took the problem head on and completely dominated, logging two tackles, a sack, 4 quarterback hits, eight pressures, and a 40% move rush win price. For context, that 40% price would have been tied for the fifth-highest amongst all edge defenders final week, and the final rookie to have eight pressures in a recreation was a man by the identify of Nick Bosa. Now, earlier than we begin calling Parsons an elite edge rusher, we’ve got to needless to say he was principally going up towards a backup offensive deal with in Storm Norton. Quinn tried Parsons on the opposite facet, squaring off towards fellow rookie Rashawn Slater, and shortly deserted that experiment. Relying on Parsons to do that once more is ill-advised, however the Cowboys are lucky sufficient to get Randy Gregory again at the very least. Nonetheless, Parsons had himself one heck of a recreation, and seemed each bit the kind of participant the Cowboys believed they had been getting once they took him twelfth total this summer time.

The First Read, Week 3: Raiders are for real; Cowboys’ defense good enough? – NFL.com
That is one factor you possibly can say concerning the Washington Soccer Crew’s present beginning quarterback — he is aware of the best way to shine when the lights are brightest. Taylor Heinicke gained an opportunity to compete for the beginning job together with his play on the finish of final season, notably in a Tremendous Wild Card Weekend loss to eventual Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay. Now he’s balling out for the WFT with Ryan Fitzpatrick sidelined by a hip damage. It seems like Heinicke is the type of participant whose bubble may burst in some unspecified time in the future, however you possibly can’t argue with the numbers.

Titans release S Bradley McDougald and DT Anthony Rush – Music City Miracles
Turning our consideration to Rush, the 350-pound defensive lineman was energetic towards Seattle, however performed only one snap. His launch leaves the Titans a bit skinny on the D-line, with simply 4 gamers now on the energetic 53 (Jeffery Simmons, Denico Autry, Teair Tart and Larrell Murchison). I’d anticipate a like-for-like substitute right here. The Titans at present have three succesful defensive lineman on the observe squad within the type of Amani Bledsoe, Woodrow Hamilton IV and Naquan Jones. Bledsoe has hung out on the Titans’ roster prior to now, and each Hamilton and Jones performed with the staff all through the preseason. [BLG Note: Former Eagles DT Anthony Rush.]

The best and worst NFL team at each record – SB Nation
The worst 2-0 staff within the NFL is the … Carolina Panthers. Completely no shade right here. Reality be instructed, it’s exceptional the Panthers are 2-0 at this level, and followers must be joyful. Being the worst of the NFL’s unbeaten tier is much better than anybody anticipated for the Panthers, who had been pegged by Vegas to complete with a 5-11 report this season. The Carolina protection has been otherworldly via two video games, and Sam Darnold has been ok to win. Granted, it’s most likely somewhat simpler for the protection to look elite once you’re going through the Jets and the Saints, who’ve confirmed to be paper tigers. Carolina has all the trimmings of a 10-7 or 9-8 soccer staff that finds its manner right into a Wild Card spot, and that’s a hell of rather a lot higher than anybody anticipated.
