What I saw: Eagles vs. Giants

Sunday, September 25, 2011, 4:04 PM
Here are my observations from today's Eagles-Giants game from the Linc: OFFENSE + Before today, Owen Schmitt had carried the ball five times in his NFL career. All five of those were in 2008 with the Seahawks. Today, he had four rushes, including two goal-line carries in the third quarter. He was... Read more

Making sense of the Eagles' inactives

Sunday, September 25, 2011, 11:42 AM
The Eagles have announced their inactives for today's game against the Giants: Jaiquawn Jarrett, Curtis Marsh, Darryl Tapp, Danny Watkins, Julian Vandervelde, Winston Justice and Juqua Parker. This is the first time all three quarterbacks are active as Vince Young will dress. If Michael Vick goes... Read more

Targeting Asomugha and the Eagles CBs

Sunday, September 25, 2011, 9:26 AM
Perhaps one of the biggest advantages the Eagles have today is their cornerbacks against the Giants wide receivers. New York has a great playmaker out wide in Hakeem Nicks, but Mario Manningham and Domenik Hixon both suffered injuries in Week 2 and won't play. That means Victor Cruz (2 career catches... Read more

What they're saying about the Eagles

Saturday, September 24, 2011, 3:32 PM
Before I get to another roundup of what the national media are saying about the Eagles, some injury news out of New York. Giants wide receiver Mario Manningham, who suffered a concussion Monday night against the Rams, did not make the trip to Philadelphia. That means Victor Cruz will likely get the... Read more

The Washburn effect: Week 2

Friday, September 23, 2011, 11:45 AM
Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan completed 17 of 28 passes for 195 yards, four touchdowns and a pair of interceptions against the Eagles. But how much pressure did the Birds' defensive line get on him when he dropped back to pass? Below is the weekly breakdown of Jim Washburn's group. I took a look... Read more

15 things: Eagles vs. Giants

Thursday, September 22, 2011, 1:50 PM
I took a closer look at last week's Giants-Rams game and researched some items from 2010 to come up with 15 nuggets for Sunday's game: 1. Regardless of who's at quarterback for the Eagles, we know the Giants are not going to sit back and just rush three or four defensive linemen. They are going to... Read more

What they're saying about the Eagles

Here's the roundup of what the national media are saying about the Eagles: I really enjoyed this breakdown of the Eagles cornerbacks from Falcons wide receiver Roddy White, as told to SI.com's Jim Trotter. Here's what White said as he watched film of Nnamdi Asomugha before last week's game: "Nnamdi's... Read more

Making sense of the Eagles' LB shuffle

Wednesday, September 21, 2011, 6:23 PM
Apparently, the Eagles saw enough from their linebackers in the first two games to switch things up before their Week 3 matchup against the Giants. The Inquirer's Jeff McLane reported this morning that Jamar Chaney had been moved to the middle, Casey Matthews to the WILL and Moise Fokou back to the... Read more
