Player I’ll be watching

Kapadia: Jason Peters

It’s been an eventful year for the 32-year-old left tackle. Aside from the skirmish against Washington, Peters is the only Eagles offensive lineman to start all four games in the same spot, and he’s been solid overall. But last week, he and Matt Tobin had a couple communication issues that resulted in big hits on Nick Foles.

If those same issues resurface this week, the results could be disastrous. That’s because Peters will be matched up against Robert Quinn. The 24-year-old is an under-the-radar superstar. He had 19 sacks a year ago, and multiple Eagles defenders this week called Quinn the best pass-rusher in the league. Read more »

All-22: Dissecting the Eagles’ Offensive Issues

David Molk seemed somewhat surprised to see a group of reporters waiting by his locker Tuesday afternoon.

“Molk! Molk! Molk!” chanted DeMeco Ryans, sporting a giant smile a couple stalls down.

“C’mon ‘Mec,” said the Eagles center. “Partner interview. I need some veteran help.”

The scene served as a good reminder of the twists and turns of an NFL season. A year ago, Molk was helping out his high school team, after having been cut by the San Diego Chargers. As recently as July, it looked like he would be battling for one of the team’s final roster spots.

But now, with Jason Kelce sidelined, Molk is a starter. On Sunday, that meant making the calls and setting the protections for an offense that was shut out against the San Francisco 49ers. Read more »

In Chip Kelly’s first game as an NFL head coach against Jim Haslett and Washington last season, he used a look in the second quarter that we would see pretty much on a weekly basis throughout the year.

It featured stacked receivers to both sides and a single back. Read more »

Peters On Baker: I’d Do the Same Thing Again

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Oakland Raiders

Jason Peters knows that he put his team in a tough spot by getting ejected in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game against Washington.

He also knows that as the left tackle and a leader on offense, he’s going to stick up for his quarterback, regardless of the situation.

“I’d do the same thing if it happened again,” Peters said today. “A guy cheap-shotted my quarterback, and I’m gonna protect him.” Read more »

The Eagles showed off a different starting offensive line today during the portion of practice open to the media.

They had Jason Peters (LT), Matt Tobin (LG), David Molk (C), Dennis Kelly (RG) and Todd Herremans (RT) with the first team. That’s different players at four of the five positions when compared to who started on Sunday against Washington. Read more »
