Notes: Goode Fined 10K; Injury Update

The league fined linebacker Najee Goode $10,000 for his hit to the head of Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien Sunday.

Goode, filling in for the injured Mychal Kendricks, was whistled for roughing the passer in the fourth quarter after his hands came in contact with Tolzien’s helmet.

“I can’t afford it,” said Goode, who is making $480,ooo this season, joking: “I’m going to make DeMeco [Ryans] pay for it.”


Goode says he plans on appealing the fine, though the evidence may be stacked against him.

Sorry, Najee.

Injury update

Kendricks (knee), Jason Peters (quad), Earl Wolff (knee) and Jake Knott (hamstring) all sat out of Wednesday's practice.

Wolff is expected to miss multiple games. Chip Kelly addressed the status of Peters and Kendricks.

"They're both day to day," said Kelly. "They're not full go.  We'll see how the week goes along.  We're hopeful."

 Bradley Fletcher (pec), Brent Celek (hip) and Michael Vick (hamstring) were limited.

Bradley is in the same boat as [Peters and Kendricks]," said Kelly.  "He ran around a little bit yesterday.  We'll see what he can do and can't do.  He's practiced for the last couple of days.  It's just what can he get from a strength standpoint up top.  He can run and his legs are fine.  Patrick Chung [shoulder] is full."

Trent Cole [illness], Riley Cooper [knee] and Cedric Thornton [knee] were all listed as full participants.

  • Dominik

    Barbre played really well, Goode played good (pun intended), but we really need Peters and Kendricks on Sunday.

    Carmichael wasn’t good (at least it didn’t seem like it, maybe Sheil or Tommy Lawlor prove me wrong in their Game Reviews), we absolutely need Fletcher. Boykin will cover Garcon most of the night, and that’s a good thing, but we need our two starting corners on the outside. Can’t lose that game if you want to go to the playoffs.

    • Adam

      Roc actually played really well. If you get a chance you should watch it again and keep an eye on him. You could make a case that he should be playing instead of Williams actually, but I doubt they will because they’re paying him a lot.

      • Jonathan R. Henry

        Beat me to it. I thought Williams had one of his worst games. Carmichael held up fairly well.

        • BHOtheLiar

          Only the refs were worse than Williams last Sunday.

          • Jonathan R. Henry

            Indeed, they weren’t what one would call “crisp.”
            If Goode gets fined for a bang-bang play, then officials should be fined for missing two blatant face-mask penalties.

          • Jason

            They get downgraded and do miss games, mostly playoff games. Which in essence is much bigger fine then the $10,000 Goode was fined. It just isn’t released to the public.

        • Joe from Easton

          It seems like Williams plays “down” to his competition. When we’re going against a good QB or receiver he’s a physical corner who plays with an attitude, gets flagged here and there, but usually keeps the receiver in check. When he’s playing against a sub par opponent (QB or receiver) it seems like he just doesn’t want to get burned and look stupid. He’s more content giving up 10 yard slants and tackling. It’s kind of weird.

      • Will

        Roc needs to get his head around and play the ball better…

        • Dominik

          That’s exactly what I thought (turning his head around). Williams played worse, but that doesn’t mean that Carmichael was ok. At least I didn’t see it that way when I watched the game. Again, I’m open for Sheil or Lawlor when they re-watch the game.

      • cliff henny

        cary drives me nuts. he plays the softest coverage, gives up easy yards and just when i’m about to call him a worse free agent signing than no-d…he totally redeems himself. he playing a game inside a game, how much can i get the fans to hate me before i make a play.

        • theycallmerob

          been doing it for years, it was what i said the day he signed. guy drives me nuts, and I think the Eagles would be in a good spot if he was nothing more than our dime DB (implying we upgrade at CB1, Fletch at CB2, and Boykin in slot).

          • cliff henny

            yeah, i remember. you also he is a walking sound bite, and then bam..sconce!
            .
            yup, even if they just get another fletcher. undervalued dbs seem to exist, not that eagles find them often, but other teams do. think signing byrd or clemmons out of miami (he looks pretty good) would also help.

          • GEAGLE

            Don’t Yous talk about my guy like that lol

          • cliff henny

            he is like that crazy ex, the one you like and hate at the same time.

    • Richard Colton

      agree on Barbre, he’s already proven to be a better O-line sub than anyone we had last year.

    • DEBO 215

      Barbre did look good, especially in the run game. I agree though. We need our top guys at 100% for this game, especially Kendricks and Fletcher.

    • JofreyRice

      I didn’t see much of a dropoff from Kendricks to Goode, actually. He was in great position on two pass plays. Didn’t come up with the pick, but was right there. I don’t fault him too much for the penalty. Young, aggressive players trip up on those kind of calls, sometimes.

      Is it sacrilegious to say I didn’t notice that much of a difference between Barbre and Peters, either? 2013 Jason Peters isn’t the one we’re used to seeing.

      I didn’t think Carmichael was that good, either, but Adam seems to think he was, and PFF agrees. I only watched the game once, but yeah, it looked like he was playing the receiver, and probably could have been flagged a couple times. Agreed that he’s better than Williams. I hope Fletcher comes back soon, but this is really his thing. He’s injury prone.

      • Dominik

        I wouldn’t put a negative spin on the Peters/Barbre angle. I think it’s more Barbre playing good than Peters having a bad season. We had a great game from the O-Line against the Raiders and a good one against the Packers. That’s ok.

        Peters is good in pass protection this year, he didn’t allow many sacks (except for the Chiefs game, where he played really bad).

  • BHOtheLiar

    Ed Reed would be the best player in the secondary, even at 35 and coming off injury. He could fit in quickly – he’s smart. For 1 $mil and a few bucks per game there is very little downside. (If he wants a deal for ’14 too – forget it.) They have plenty of cash and cap space. For the Eagles have a chance to get lucky this year they need to pick him up and they must win game #11.

    • Richard Colton

      he’s a name, that’s it. I guess the questions i’d have would be these: “why did he only play 11 snaps with the Texans?” and “why didn’t a single team put in a waiver claim on the guy?”

      I love Brian Dawkins, don’t want to sign him either.

      • BHOtheLiar

        Have you watched our secondary lately?

        • BlindChow

          There are a bunch of teams with worse secondaries than ours (Vikings, Redskins, Cowboys). They didn’t pick the guy up, either.

          • Richard Colton

            Oakland’s secondary looked terrible too…against FOLES!!!!
            can’t help myself today

          • cliff henny

            these secondaries opinions based upon your technical BFT/AFT before and after foles torching stat.

          • Richard Colton

            true Cliff. Turns out both Oakland and Green Bay were historically bad and unlucky.

        • macadood

          not sure if you mean they’re good or bad, but did you see Nate Allen against the packers and the last couple weeks? He’s upped his game infinitely. Put a nice hit on Lacy I believe in the open field for no gain. I expected him to get trucked for sure.

          wolfe has been playing well too for such young raw talent, and chung seems to be adequate.

        • Richard Colton

          our 2011 secondary? it was pretty bad. also the same year I would have thought about signing Ed Reed.

      • DEBO 215

        Exactly.

    • DEBO 215

      He can’t run. I don’t care how good of a locker room presence he is, he is a liability in the passing game and simply can not run anymore.
      I’d rather sign Brian Dawkins 3 years removed from playing football.

      • BlindChow

        He’s like Foles all up in there!

        • DEBO 215

          Foles might be faster, lol.

    • theycallmerob

      If you had watched him play at any point this season (or even last), you would realize the silliness of your first 10 words

  • Will

    Nnnnoooooooooooooo…

  • cliff henny

    10k for that? guy is reaching for the ball, yeah, it’s PF, but intent counts. curry should be fined 100k, then…thought he killed tolzien when qb’s helmet was rolling backwards. damn, that was awesome hit, got me on the play curry bandwagon

    • theycallmerob

      the curry .gif is my new FFL avatar (replaced McCoy’s week 1 hurdle TD). kinda pissing off everyone, which means it’s perfect

      • Will

        That was an Awesome sack!

        • GEAGLE

          Probably my fav play of the year

      • cliff henny

        post it, please. he does look much bigger. nfl is a long season, guy just needed time.

          “boy, ump, did you see what I just did? after the game, give him a hug for me”

          • Will

            Rob the video just plays over and over just fine..”Hey Ref here’s a hug don’t throw the ruffing the passer flag on me!” Vinny pancaked the QB…

          • Brian

            He trucked Tolzien, and then stole the ref’s wallet! Badass!

          • Will

            LMAO

          • cliff henny

            thank you! Curry is looking stacked, wonder what he is up to? really starting to like this team again, too. was a little like work the past couple years

          • Will

            Rob you have to teach me the GIF’s I could have some serious fun with them…lol…

          • theycallmerob
          • jshort

            Nice job Rob, and I thought the internet was only good for reading this stuff and porn.

      • Will
  • Will

    Sign Kerry Rhodes before ED Reed if you sign anyone Ed is 35 and
    injury prone Nnnnoooooooo…Get used to Chung injured in comes Fan
    Favorite Kurt Coleman….

    • macadood

      I still remember his breakout game against the ‘skins with the 3 picks. my hopes were through the roof after that, not sure how he became so mediocre. but yea, i’d rather have coleman than reed out there

      • Will

        I remember the Cleavland game I think when his helmet flew off on impact with Trent Richards, Chung is one shoulder hit away from the bench and Kurt will be in. Maybe the new Defense will help his game like it did with Nate Allen…With Wolff out if Chung goes down that what the Depth chart has Kurt Coleman… or Colt Anderson or maybe Curtis Marsh even..

        • Will

          Ahh..

          • Will

            From the other side…Kurt did stop him…trucked or not…

          • EaglePete

            give the guy credit at least for balling. He gives effort, just sometimes the natural ability isnt there. Ill take that over the opposite.

          • Will

            Hey I actually like him for his effort exactly why he’ll come in with fresh legs and play fine really surprised he didn’t beat out Chung…

      • cliff henny

        shoot, maybe it was wide9 or no-d and dont really care, but coleman was looking up at mediocre, guy was really bad

        • bentheimmigrant

          I don’t think there are many better 4th string safeties out there.

  • Will

    • Will

      Couldn’t find any Bennie Logan highlights…

    • Will

      Vinny Curry Highlights

  • Will

    If the Eagles decide they need a Safety here’s the guy who’s still available #25…

  • Jim

    Hey guys fantasy question here I got offered a trade and I can’t decide what to do. The offer was I receive matt stafford and give up Eddie lacy. My qbs are kaepernick and rivers and my rbs are Moreno, Peterson, green Ellis and lacy. And my wrs are aj green, decker, Boykin and Dobson.

    • nicksaenz1

      8 man league?

      • Jim

        No 10 I had 1st pick took Peterson got green next then right after took Jimmy Graham. I picked up Moreno and Lacy got dropped when he had a concussion so I picked him up too

        • anon

          I think it’s ok — Rivers has peaked IMO, Kap hasn’t been great in the passing game. Stafford will put up a lot of yards each game (even if there’s not always a ton of TDs).

          • nicksaenz1

            Tend to agree with you, there. I probably wouldn’t do the trade, though. Lacy’s been a stud and Rivers is good enough that he shouldn’t give up a stud rb for a 2nd tier QB when he already has one.
