Mike Kafka Update

For the many one or two Eagles fans that still like hearing about Mike Kafka, here you go.

Let’s hope Kafka is a better coach than player.

Andy Reid did have success with a former QB of his becoming a QC coach and then climbing the ladder. That was some guy named Doug Pederson.

DB Update

CB Ron Brooks got hurt in the win over the Vikings. Doesn’t sound good.

So what are the Eagles going to do? Sounds like they have a good plan in place.

Grymes showed the ability to play the slot, CB and even some S. Smart, tough player. Had the one great INT this summer where he ran the route better than the WR and picked off the pass in the end zone.

Gotta see if he’s healthy.

Wonderful Wendell

Rookie RB Wendell Smallwood has the only KOR TD in the NFL so far this season.

Smallwood is also playing well at RB. Looks like the Eagles got a good late round player.

He’s up for Rookie of the Week due to the KOR TD.

PS Shuffle Continues

The Eagles are manipulating the PS rules to keep more than 10 guys around. They come and go for a few days, but get to practice on a regular basis and they’re getting paid good money. Smart way to keep extra youth within the organization.

Scheme Bashing is Stupid

I hate this.

Dumb. Just dumb.

Back in 1989, WAS had a stud RB named Gerald Riggs. He ran for 221 yards against the Eagles. Against Gang Green. You know…Buddy Ryan’s 46 Defense. And Reggie White. And Jerome Brown. And Seth Joyner. And Byron Evans. And Wes Hopkins. And Andre Waters.

Any scheme, any team can have a bad day. The Eagle played sloppy on Sunday and the Skins made them pay. Last year Tampa ran wild against the Eagles and their 3-4, 2-gapping defense that was designed to stop the run.

Scheme is far less important than gap integrity and tackling, which were major problems on Sunday. No scheme is supposed to fail. The players just had a bad day.

Penalty Problems

The Eagles have had consecutive games with more than 110 penalty yards. This team is drawing flags at an elite level.

Yikes.

DeMarco Murray Update

DeMarco Murray led the NFL in rushing in 2014. He was a mess in 2015, his only year with the Eagles. He’s back among league leaders this year. There were several factors that led to his poor play in 2015, but he was a big part of that. From PFT:

Regardless of where Murray ended up, he made it clear to the Eagles that he wanted out of Philadelphia.

“My heart just wasn’t there,” Murray said. “I felt it was a situation where I needed a fresh start, and I was granted that by Howie [Roseman] and Jeffery [Lurie], who is a great guy. Really good people. I was fortunate to have that relationship with them, so I could tell them, ‘This is where it is. I think it would be best for both sides if I find a new home.’”

Glad he’s happy with Howie and Lurie. I doubt they feel as happy about him. Nothing better than handing megabucks to a free agent only to find out he really doesn’t want to be there.

The Eagles 2015 struggles led to the changes to get this team where it is now so maybe Eagles fans should actually be thankful that Murray played as he did last year.
