Depth Chart Projection: Eagles Offense

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys

The Eagles begin OTAs a week from today at the NovaCare Complex, so now seems like a good time to take a look at their depth chart.

We’ll do the offense today and the defense tomorrow. Before the big unveil, a few notes:

  • This is a beginning depth chart, not necessarily what I expect it to look like in early September.
  • Having said that, for the purpose of this exercise, we’ll assume that every player is healthy and in attendance.
  • Below the actual depth chart are position-by-position breakdowns. More than anything, this is meant to provide an overall look at where the roster stands, but there’s no harm in guessing where things might be headed in the coming months.

The Eagles will release veteran guard Todd Herremans today, a source confirmed to Tim McManus.

ESPN’s Adam Caplan was first with the report.

Herremans started 124 games since the team drafted him in the fourth round of the 2005 draft out of Saginaw Valley State. He lined up all across the offensive line, played through pain and was by all accounts well-liked by teammates. Read more »

Mychal Kendricks sat patiently at his locker Wednesday afternoon answering questions from reporters.

One questioner asked Kendricks about how the team is avoiding looking ahead to the Thanksgiving Day matchup against the Cowboys.

“I can’t even believe you’re mentioning that right now,” Kendricks said. “Where’s that rewind button?”

All-22: The State Of the Eagles’ Offense

After Sunday’s win against the Rams, Chip Kelly discussed the process of feeling out opposing defenses early in games.

“Just try to loosen them up,” Kelly said. “A lot of times as we play teams, it’s figuring how they decide to defend us. They were in a big man scheme, different than some of the other teams we face. Trying to get a feel for what they are going to do from a defensive standpoint.

“They have done a good job of playing zone and man. Just what are they going to choose to play us in, and they chose to play us in a lot more man today than we had seen. Even any of the other games we had played, I think Jacksonville and San Francisco played us in a ton of zone. These guys, their choice was to play us in man. Just have to do a better job with some of our man beaters. We had some guys there, but we have to do a better job. We knew what we were getting. We just have to execute.”

For the second week in a row, the offense looked shaky, managing two touchdown drives while turning the ball over three times. Read more »

Game Review: Eagles Offense Vs. Rams

NFL: St. Louis Rams at Philadelphia Eagles

Here’s a player-by-player breakdown of the Eagles’ offense after having re-watched Sunday’s game against the Rams.

QUARTERBACK

Nick Foles - He’s not playing well. Foles is missing throws, making questionable decisions and looks jittery in the pocket. Overall, he went 24-for-37 for 207 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Foles turned the ball over a second time on a fumble while scrambling. 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 »
