*Official 2019 Philadelphia Eagles Thread* - Now the Aftermath; Alshon done, Lane Week to week, Howard, Agholar Who Knows?

I watched Q4 of the super bowl over the weekend and was reminded that Agholor made several good catches. 
Wonder if it is normal regression, change in coaching, change in QB...?

Funny, after that #### show in Sunday I had the play by play highlights video of the super bowl running on my desktop at work yesterday.  Then I watched the history of the Philly Special.  Then I watched the crowd reaction to the Philly Special at Xfinity Live.  What a magical run that year was.

One takeaway from that season that makes me optimistic about this year.  We were not running enough in the beginning of the season, clearly.  The players spoke up and Doug listened.  He started running more and we started trucking teams.  After Carson went down, Foles came in and really didn't play great.  Everyone was assuming our season was over, even though we'd clinched a bye at that point.  Doug and company recognized his strengths in the RPO and re-adjusted the play calling to suit him and the rest is history.  

In my mind Doug has earned the benefit of the doubt.  He revamped his play calling drastically, twice, in that season.  There is definitely time to turn this thing around.  Like I said earlier, no one expected us to beat both NE and Seattle; we always had to split these two games.  So we still need to.  

I trust in Doug to right the ship.

i'm on board with this, but in thinking about the fact that they came out of the bye and didn't seem to do much to change, i'm not sure what to think.  Maybe they just don't have a confidence in the personnel between the injuries and performance to run what they really want to run.

Receptions this season:

Michael Thomas - 94
Philadelphia Eagles - 93

I'm assuming this is just WR receptions?  Cause Carson has 210 completions.

The WR’s we rolled out yesterday have to be the worst in the NFL by a lot right?

I’d consider giving up my left nut for Thrash and Pinkston...

Lane leaving changed everything, I still don’t get why Doug abandoned the run after that but...like you, I still have confidence in him. 

 

Howie on on the other hand, has lost most of his cache with me.

 

i think Agholor, Sloth with 4 names and Ben Simmons need the best shrink on the planet at this point

Well  Vegas thinks the sea phili game is gonna be close 

This Seattle homer tends to agree. Seahawks have played well at times, but lucked out some too. Thinking the status of the Philly o-line will be big.

Aghalor faking an injury after the drop just shows you where he is mentally. He’s done.

I thought it seemed like he was faking it too, but he missed practice today with a knee injury so either it's real or he's taking the fake injury too far.

So Lane is out this week.  What a massive blow.  Our Oline was awful after he went out last week.

Oh and Nelson is questionable now too.  There's a good chance Jordan Matthews is our #1 WR this week.  That is so insanely messed up.

What do you guys expect from Wentz tomorrow?  Will the Eagles focus on the running game and if so, will they be successful?  Or will they have to throw the ball by default?  The SEA defense doesn't look as scary with Clowney looking doubtful to play.

It's been 30 years since the Eagles beat the Seahawks at Philly.   I think we're looking at 31.   Eagles are a mess.

If you’re thinking of fantasy purposes, as of now I have friggen Darnold in over Wentz. I just can’t trust him.

They better have  a better gameplan on offense than what we saw vs the Patriots.  That was pathetic

Gonna be a contrarian here. As long as the trio of Ertz, Goedert, and Sanders are healthy, Carson still has some quality targets. Kind of odd that a team whose defensive philosophy downgrades LB value seems best built on offense to stress opponent LBs.

WEntz isn't the elite option I expected him to be this year, but I think with those three healthy he still belongs in the low end #1/higher end #2 discussion. Not an auto-start, but it would take a pretty good option to unseat him

without Lane, and considering the way they've run the offense for most of the year, I doubt they will lean on the run game.  whether that's wise or not...i would probably lean away from Wentz.

Yep, time to throw a #1 at a top WR to pair with Carson for his prime years.

And it better be someone who can mother f&ckin’ fly! I don’t want to hear about how the player “can win the contested balls.” That’s a euphemism for he’s SLOW.

Don't know what you guys are worried about. Greg Ward was signed from the practice squad and Rudy Ford to IR. Problems solved.

Sadly this makes me very excited, if nothing else it at least won’t be a repeat of the same movie we’ve watched since week 2. Someone else deserved a shot a long time ago.

Worst part is that contract locks us in to Wentz till 2023 at least.  Howie giving out all this free money to ####ty players has killed us.

Wentz is seriously starting to have a Romo feel to him for me. 

I wish he was Romo at this point. He's more scared to throw to anyone. Romo was a gunslinger. That was his problem.

I agree that it is fair to question wentz, but far from time to panic.

look at Dak this time last year vs now

I agree. 

 

At the same time it will come down to the Dallas game most likely, could still make playoffs. Disappointed for sure though as going in I thought we were in the top tier like Seattle but in reality this is an average squad that looks lazy, poorly coached, and lacking talent from poor drafting.
