Here’s a position-by-position review of how the Eagles’ defense performed against the Patriots, after having re-watched the game.
If memory serves, I have outdueled the venerable Sheil Kapadia each of the last two years in this exercise. I think we can all agree […]
Here’s a position-by-position look at how the Eagles’ defense performed against the Bears, after having re-watched the first three quarters. If you missed the breakdown […]
We covered the offense yesterday. Here’s the position-by-position look at where the Eagles’ roster stands on defense.
The Eagles today claimed cornerback Shaun Prater off waivers from the Bengals and waived/injured Curtis Marsh.
Prater (5-10, 190) was a fifth-round pick out of Iowa in 2012, but was sidelined during his rookie season because of a knee injury (patella tendinitis, per the Bengals’ Web site). He was a three-year starter and two-time All-Big Ten first-team selection with the Hawkeyes. Prater had seven career interceptions and forced four fumbles as a senior.
The Eagles were back at it Tuesday for another round of OTAs. Here’s a rundown of practice observations during the outdoor session at the NovaCare Complex.
With Cary Williams missing a good chunk of these OTAs, cornerback Curtis Marsh has been running with first team opposite Bradley Fletcher. Now that Williams is back, the assumption was that he would supplant Marsh at right corner. On Tuesday, though, that was not the case — Marsh was still with the ones.
Williams strongly recommended that the media not make too much of it.
“If you guys look into that situation outside, I think that’s an issue,” said Williams. “It’s not an issue to me.
Chip Kelly has warned repeatedly not to draw any depth chart conclusions in May.
And he has a point.
Practice is about getting players acclimated to the offensive and defensive schemes. Reps, reps and more reps.
Having said that, there were a few surprises on Monday, the first time practice was open to the media.
Here’s a quick rundown of some of the positions of note.
The initial overhaul during the summer of 2011 didn’t work out, so the Eagles tried again this offseason.
Gone are Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha. In are Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher.
During the draft, the Eagles didn’t find corner help early, but they grabbed Oregon State’s Jordan Poyer in the seventh round.
Most analysts agree that it takes three years to properly judge a draft class.
But in the case of the Eagles’ 2011 picks, we might only need two.
From Mychal Kendricks to Fletcher Cox to Colt Anderson, here’s an All-22 look at what the Eagles’ defense looked like Sunday against the Bucs.
Here’s a look at Eagles snap counts from Sunday night’s loss to the Cowboys. We’ll go position-by-position.
Early on during today’s press conference, defensive coordinator Todd Bowles was asked about potentially making personnel changes in the Eagles’ secondary.
“We have possible lineup changes, and people compete everyday,” Bowles said. “There are no spots set in stone. We’re playing our best guys. If there was somebody that was stepping up to play better, they would be playing.”
Bowles didn’t mean it as a slight on the Eagles’ depth, but his comment spotlights the team’s lack of young talent at cornerback and safety.
