DL Production: Graham Getting It Done?

Philadelphia Eagles DE Brandon Graham.The Eagles’ pass-rush had some good moments early against the Cowboys, but was non-existent in the second half when Tony Romo completed all 10 of his pass attempts.

After the game, Andy Reid announced that the team was parting ways with Jim Washburn, although he admitted that the game’s results had little to do with his decision.

Meanwhile, Brandon Graham got the start for Jason Babin, and Vinny Curry was active for the second time this season, as the Eagles went with a 10-man rotation.

Here’s the weekly look at production. Hurries (and tackles) come directly from the Eagles’ coaching staff. Pass-rushing opportunities are tracked by Pro Football Focus. And the last column is from me – a measure of how often each defensive lineman notched either a sack or a hurry.

Bowles: Washburn Was Never a Problem For Me

Philadelphia Eagles defensive line coach Jim WashburnAmid reports that Jim Washburn had become a disruptive, divisive presence on the Eagles’ coaching staff, Todd Bowles said today he never had an issue with the defensive line coach.

“Me and Wash had a good relationship,” Bowles said. “Wash is a good man, and he’s a good coach. He was never a problem for me.”

Did Bowles have any input into Andy Reid’s decision to let Washburn go?

Eagles DL Production: Graham’s Chance To Replace Babin

With five games to go, the focus for the Eagles is clearly on the offseason and 2013.

Jason Babin was let go this week, meaning guys like Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry should see more snaps. While he had his share of issues, was Babin still an effective pass-rusher? And will the Eagles have a tough time replacing his production?

Let’s take a look.

Jackson, Cox Leave With Injuries

The injuries continue to pile up for the Eagles.

DeSean Jackson went to the locker room late in the first quarter to have X-rays on his chest and collarbone area. The X-rays were negative but he has a sternum injury and he did not return.

Jackson ran an end around in the closing minutes of the first quarter and was tackled by Luke Kuechly after a gain of two yards. He was checked by a team doctor on the sidelines before heading inside.

Rookie defensive tackle Fletcher Cox also left in the first half with a back/tailbone injury.  Those X-rays were negative as well but he  also sat out for the remainder of the game.

The loss of Jackson is just another blow to an already depleted Eagles’ offense. Michael Vick (concussion), LeSean McCoy (concussion) and Jason Avant (hamstring) were all forced to sit out Monday night. Meanwhile, Evan Mathis is the only member of the original starters along the offensive line remaining.

With Jackson out, the Eagles were down to Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper and Damaris Johnson at receiver Monday night.

DL Production: Cole Gets Shut Out

Here’s our weekly look at the Eagles’ defensive line production.

The Eagles had quite a few “close but no sack” moments against Robert Griffin III. In fairness to Jim Washburn’s unit, Griffin makes defensive linemen look silly on a weekly basis.

Here are the numbers. Sacks, hurries (a stat kept by the coaches) and pressure percentage (frequency with with each player notches a sack or hurry, given the opportunities).
