Subject: Three Eagles numbers that matter for the Washington Redskins game

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Previewing this week’s MNF matchup.

Here’s a look at three numbers that matter as the Philadelphia Eagles prepare to play the Washington Redskins in Week 7.

6 - Washington’s rank in DVOA.

Last week, Washington ranked second in DVOA.

If you’re asking yourself “What the heck is DVOA?” you can read more about it at Football Outsiders. In short, it’s a way to measure the quality of a team.

I bring up the fact that Washington is sixth in DVOA because I think they’re a better team than some might realize. I’ve seen people predict the Eagles are going to blow Washington out. A number of callers shared this sentiment during our BGN Radio show on SportsRadio 94WIP this weekend.

I think the way Washington barely squeaked by the 49ers at home is what’s causing people to feel that way. Not to mention that the Eagles already beat Washington, so why can’t they do it again?

Look, I’m not saying the Eagles can’t win this game. Philly ranks second in DVOA. The Eagles are mostly healthy entering this game and coming off extra rest while Washington doesn’t have that same advantage. Carson Wentz is playing at a high level. There are plenty of reasons to believe the Eagles are a legitimately good team.

I just think it’s a little premature to think the Eagles will easily handle Washington. We all know how Kirk Cousins has a track record of succeeding against this team. Cousins actually has the highest passer rating (117.7) in the NFL from Week 2 and beyond (hat tip to Jaws). Washington’s wide receivers were getting open looks down the field in Week 1. They just didn’t execute on them.

Everyone would be happy if I’m wrong, and I’d obviously be very willing to admit that if that’s the case.

The feeling here is that tonight’s going to be a tough battle that comes down to the wire.

Thankfully Pete Morelli won’t be involved this time.

65.7 - Rushing yards per game allowed by the Eagles’ defense - fewest in the NFL.

The Eagles have the best run defense in the NFL. It’s so good that they held the Panthers’ running backs to a mere ONE YARD on 13 carries in Week 6.

Washington’s run game could provide more of a challenge than Carolina’s did. Jay Gruden’s side is averaging 122.8 rush yards per game, which ranks 10th in the NFL. Their starting running back, Rob Kelley, is expected to return tonight after missing a couple games. He’s averaging 4.5 yards per carry this season.

The Eagles did a good job of holding Washington to only 68 rush yards on 17 attempts (3.8 yards per carry) in Week 1. The Birds have come a long way from the first Eagles-Washington game in 2016 where Washington ran for approximately one million yards that day.

Forcing Washington’s offense to be one-dimensional will be critical. It’s not like Washington can’t move the ball through the air if their run game isn’t working, because they can. But a big reason why the Eagles beat Washington in Week 1 is because their pass rush dominated a Washington offensive line that’s pretty good on most game days. Stopping the run should allow the Eagles to tee off on Cousins and limit the effectiveness of play-action.

The Eagles’ defensive line really needs to show up in order to win this game.

92.1% - The Eagles’ current chances of making the playoffs, per Football Outsiders.

These numbers are all great. They’ll be even be better if the Eagles beat Washington.

If the Eagles win this game, their playoff odds will be the high 90% range. They’ll be a virtual lock and the NFC East race will essentially be over. Washington’s odds, meanwhile, would drop by about 21%. For those wondering, the Dallas Cowboys are currently around 20%.

ESPN’s FPI model give the Eagles a 70% chance of winning this game. That’s encouraging. A number of NFL insiders are also picking the Birds to win.

All three insiders picked Washington (3-2) to beat Philadelphia (5-1) in Philly, which could mean Eagles fatigue has arrived in full. It also could mean the Redskins are earning respect. Both themes have been prominent in conversations with coaches and evaluators.

"Everyone is riding high on Philly right now," one of the insiders said, "but I feel like, let's wait and see with them, especially after last year. I think Washington defensively is sneaky good, especially in the pass game. I don't know if [Redskins cornerback] Josh Norman is back yet, but their mix with their rush and coverage is actually pretty good."

Norman, who fractured a rib against the Chiefs in Week 4, could return, but the Redskins just put defensive lineman Jonathan Allen (foot) on injured reserve.

"When [Redskins assistant head coach Bill] Callahan wants to get it going and [head coach Jay] Gruden sticks to it, the Redskins can clearly run the ball," one of the insiders said.

Washington is running the ball 53 percent of the time on early downs. That's the fourth-highest rate in the NFL and a big increase from last season, when Washington ranked 25th at 41 percent. The difference in percentage points remains in double digits after removing plays when the Redskins were trailing and potentially more apt to throw.

"This will be a fun game," an insider said. "I do like the Eagles' defense, but a lot of things swing back to .500 in this league, and I wonder how many times the Eagles can keep winning."

If the Eagles DO lose, it won’t be the end of the world. They’ll still be a half game up on Washington. Their upcoming schedule also isn’t looking so difficult:

But forget that. Just win, Eagles, and you’re in great shape. Get it done.

Great breakdown on No. 11

I can’t get over the fact that Carson Wentz is currently the odds-on favorite to be the NFL MVP this year. You have to go all the back to Norm Van Brocklin in 1960 to find the last time a Philadelphia Eagles player was named MVP by the Associated Press. It just feels like it’s been way too long since the Eagles had a quarterback playing this well.

Thankfully, Philadelphia’s current quarterback is the real deal. Carson Wentz baby, he’s our baby, he’s it baby.

Our friend Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) of Houston Texans SB Nation site Battle Red Blog put together a great film breakdown on Wentz. You can watch it below (click here if you can’t see the video).

Carson Wentz is playing like the NFL MVP

Carson Wentz is truly playing like the NFL MVP

Posted by Bleeding Green Nation: For Philadelphia Eagles Fans on Sunday, October 22, 2017

From the video:

I love Alex Smith, and Kareem Hunt, and Tom Brady, and Todd Gurley, and whoever else you want to throw into the discussion. But to me, the NFL MVP right now is Carson Wentz.

The Eagles are 5-1 because of what he’s doing on third down this season and because of the magnitude of his talent. He’s elevating this franchise beyond any level that they’ve been at since Donovan McNabb was in his prime.

Subject: Flyers prospect report: Phil Myers hurt, Danick Martel hurting other teams

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The Phantoms keep winning despite mounting injuries.

Phantoms update: Phil Myers hurt, Danick Martel hurting other teams

10/20 - 5-2 WIN
10/21 - 4-3 WIN (Highlights)

The Phantoms keep on winning, cruising to a 5-1-1 record and the most points in the AHL. They’ve done it mostly on the back of the dynamic Danick Martel / Mike Vecchione / Nicolas Aube-Kubel line, which has combined for 10 of the team’s 24 goals this season. Let’s use the comments to think of a creative nickname for the line.

Philippe Myers (D): 1 GP, 1 shot
Undrafted Free Agent

Well, this is no good. Myers exited the game early on Friday and did not return. No updates have been given on his status and obviously did not play on Saturday. The team is already without T.J. Brennan on the back-end as well.

Mark Friedman (D): 2 GP, 2 assists, 5 shots
2014 3rd Round Pick, 86th overall

Friedman gets his first two points of the season! He had one in each game and both were at even strength. With injuries to Myers/Brennan and the potential for Samuel Morin to get called up soon, Friedman will be put in the spotlight.

Samuel Morin (D): 2 GP, 1 goal, 2 assists, 6 shots, 6 PIM
2013 1st Round Pick, 11th overall

Morin was a wrecking ball in what may be his last weekend in the Lehigh Valley for quite a bit. The injury for Andrew MacDonald (that will see him sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks) could finally enable Morin to get that extended look in the NHL.

Mike Vecchione (C): 2 GP, 2 assists, 4 shots, 2 PIM
Undrafted Free Agent

A pair of primary assists from Vecchione gives him 7 points (1 G, 6 A) in his first 7 AHL games. He is finding a lot of success centering Danick Martel and Nicolas Aube-Kubel.

Nicolas Aubé-Kubel (RW): 2 GP, 1 goal, 1 assist, 3 shots, 7 PIM
2014 2nd Round Pick, 48th overall

Good things are happening for the 21-year old. It’s now 5 points (3 G, 2 A) in 7 games after only scoring 18 in 71 last season for LHV.

Danick Martel (RW): 2 GP, 2 goals, 1 assist, 5 shots, 5 PIM
Undrafted Free Agent

He’s not slowing down yet, folks. Martel’s 7 goals are tied for the league-lead with Daniel Sprong. His 10 points overall are just 1 off the tops in the AHL. The kid is still young (22) and has a chance to make a name for himself.

Oskar Lindblom (LW): 2 GP, 1 assist, 4 shots
2014 5th Round Pick, 138th overall

Finally, that elusive first point of the season. It’s been a slow start to Lindblom’s first full season in North America.

Mikhail Vorobyov (C): 2 GP, 1 assist, 1 shot
2015 4th Round Pick, 104th overall

3 assists in 7 games for Vorobyov. This isn’t too bad considering he is getting 4C duties with teammates like Tyrell Goulbourne and Radel Fazleev.

Alex Lyon (G): 1 GP, 3 GA, 28 saves
Undrafted Free Agent

Only one game this weekend for Lyon who gave way to backup Dustin Tokarski in net on Friday. In his action on Saturday, Lyon held strong, though did give up a late 3rd period goal in the game. In 6 starts he has a 4-1 record, .916 SV% and 2.61 GAA.

Notable Canadian junior performers this week:

Connor Bunnaman (C/LW), Kitchener Rangers (OHL)
2016 4th Round Pick, 109th overall

  • 10/20 - 1 shot, 5 for 11 FOW
  • 10/21 - 1 shot, 5 for 10 FOW

After going nuts last weekend (6 points in 3 games), the Bun-man went back into hibernation and sits at 8 points (5 G, 3 A) in 11 games.

Anthony Salinitri (C), Sarnia Sting (OHL)
2016 6th Round Pick, 172nd overall

  • 10/19 - no shots, 3 for 8 FOW
  • 10/20 - 1 assist, 1 shot, 5 for 13 FOW
  • 10/21 - 1 shot, 4 PIM, 4 for 6 FOW

Sarnia scored 20 goals in 3 games this weekend and somehow Salinitri was only part of one of them. Call it a fluke for the 4th year junior player. He has 14 points (4 G, 10 A) in 13 games.

Morgan Frost (C), Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds (OHL)
2017 1st Round Pick, 27th overall

  • 10/18 - 1 goal, 1 assist, 2 shots, 7 for 19 FOW
  • 10/20 - 2 assists, 2 shots, 2 PIM, 7 for 16 FOW
  • 10/22 - 4 shots, 11 for 22 FOW

No videos of his goal (that I’m aware of), but it did give him 4 on the season to go along with his 10 assists.

Isaac Ratcliffe (LW), Guelph Storm (OHL)
2017 2nd Round Pick, 35th overall

Shots, shots, shots! No this isn’t the start to an LMFAO song, Ratcliffe has thrown 52 shots on goal this season. His double-shot of goals on Saturday gave him 4 goals to go with his 3 assists on the season.

Maksim Sushko (RW), Owen Sound Attack (OHL)
2017 4th Round Pick, 107th overall

One of the brightest spots of the early season in the Flyers’ pipeline, Sushko is putting on quite the display. He has 12 points (8 G, 4 A) in 9 games and has even missed some time due to injury. Here’s his goal from Sunday. Sushko has helped push Owen Sound to 6-3-1 and just 1 point behind division-leading Kitchener.

Matthew Strome (LW), Hamilton Bulldogs (OHL)
2017 4th Round Pick, 106th overall

  • 10/20 - 3 shots, 5 for 8 FOW
  • 10/22 - 1 goal, 5 shots, 2 for 2 FOW

Matthew Strome picks up his 4th goal of the season on this nice give and go.

Carsen Twarynski (LW), Kelowna Rockets (WHL)
2016 3rd Round Pick, 82nd overall

  • 10/17 - 7 shots, 1 for 2 FOW
  • 10/20 - 3 shots, 2 PIM, 1 for 1 FOW
  • 10/21 - 3 goals, 3 shots, 0 for 1 FOW

Hat Trick for Twarynski! Here is the goal that earned the honors. Twarynski has surprised me with his point production so far this year. He is up to 11 points (6 G, 5 A) in 9 games. He had 43 in 64 last season.

Pascal Laberge (C), Victoriaville Tigres (QMJHL)
2016 2nd Round Pick, 36th overall

  • 10/19 - 1 assist, 2 shots, 8 for 13 FOW
  • 10/20 - 1 assist, 3 shots, 4 for 8 FOW
  • 10/22 - 1 shot, 4 for 9 FOW

Laberge has had points in 7 of his 10 games this season to give him 10 total (4 G, 6 A). This is a big season for him as he answers questions about his effectiveness after his disappointing and injury-filled 2016-17 season.

German Rubtsov (C), Chicoutimi Saguenéens (QMJHL)
2016 1st Round Pick, 22nd overall

  • 10/18 - 1 assist, 2 shots, 4 for 8 FOW
  • 10/20 - 1 assist, 1 shot, 1 for 1 FOW
  • 10/21 - 1 goal, 4 shots, 0 for 2 FOW

First goal of the season for Rubtsov on an absolute snipe, so that is fun and good. The Russian import has 9 points in 8 games.

CHL Notes: Carter Hart (G) and fans received the news that he has been diagnosed with mono. The Everett Silvertips (WHL) will be without the top goalie prospect for the foreseeable future.

Notable European performers this week

Linus Högberg (D), Växjö Lakers HC (SHL)
2016 5th Round Pick, 139th overall

4th pairing minutes on Saturday was the only action Högberg was able to get last week. However, Högberg was named to Team Sweden (U20) for the 4 Nations Tournament next month.

David Bernhardt (D), Djurgårdens IF (SHL)
2016 7th Round Pick, 199th overall

  • 10/17 - 1 shot, 16:00 TOI
  • 10/19 - 1 shot, 13:48 TOI

Still no points for Bernhardt through 10 games.

David Kaše (C/W), Mora IK (SHL)
2015 5th Round Pick, 128th overall

  • 10/19 - 1 goal, 3 shots, 16:24 TOI
  • 10/21 - 14:37 TOI

3rd goal of the season for Kaše! He has 7 points in 11 games in his first season in the SHL.

Olle Lycksell (RW/C), Linköping HC J20 (SuperElit)
2017 6th Round Pick, 168th overall

Lycksell is cruising through the J20, racking up 12 points (5 G, 7 A) in 14 games.

Felix Sandström (G), Brynäs IF (SHL)
2015 3rd Round Pick, 70th overall

Sandström’s first legitimately awful start from beginning to end. The 20 year old still sports 7 wins, a .910 SV% and 2.71 GAA.

Ivan Fedotov (G), Toros Neftekamsk (VHL)
2015 7th Round Pick, 188th overall

The box score wasn’t posted for Sunday’s game just yet, but Fedotov had a much better week than his start to the season has been thus far. He still has an ugly .894 SV% in 10 games.

Kirill Ustimenko (G), MHK Dynamo St. Petersburg (MHL)
2017 3rd Round Pick, 80th overall

  • 10/18 - 2 GA
  • 10/19 - DNP
  • 10/22 - 3 GA, 28 saves

I apologize in advance because full reports and breakdowns on Ustimenko’s games this week were a bit confusing. However, EliteProspects.com has the young goalie at .921 SV% in 15 MHL games this season.

Notable NCAA and USHL performers this week:

Wade Allison (RW), Western Michigan University
2016 2nd Round Pick, 52nd overall

  • 10/20 - 2 assists, 4 shots, 4 PIM
  • 10/21 - no shots, 2 PIM

More points for Wade as his two assists this weekend gave him 7 on the year. His 9 points for WMU is 2nd best on his team.

Tanner Laczynski (RW/C), Ohio State University
2016 6th Round Pick, 169th overall

  • 10/20 - 1 assist, 3 shots, 2 PIM
  • 10/21 - 3 assists, 4 shots

After going pointless in his first 4 games, the 4-assist weekend was just what Laczynski needed.

Cooper Marody (C), University of Michigan
2015 6th Round Pick, 158th overall

  • 10/20 - 3 shots, 13 for 15 FOW
  • 10/21 - 3 shots, 9 for 20 FOW

U of M was back in action with last weekend off. Marody was held pointless this go-around and sits at just 1 assist in 4 games.

Brendan Warren (LW), University of Michigan
2015 3rd Round Pick, 81st overall

Warren fared a little better than Marody, getting his first goal/point of the NCAA season.

David Drake (D), University of Connecticut
2013 7th Round Pick, 192nd overall

Drake is pointless in 6 games this season. Ho-hum.

Wyatt Kalynuk (D), University of Wisconsin
2017 7th Round Pick, 196th overall

  • 10/20 - 3 shots, 2 PIM
  • 10/21 - 1 assist, 8 shots, 2 PIM

The freshman collects his first point of his college hockey career.

Terrance Amorosa (D), Clarkson University
2013 5th Round Pick, 132nd overall

Make that 7 points (2 G, 5 A) in 6 games for the Clarkson senior. There are only 3 defensemen in all of the NCAA with more points than Amorosa.

Noah Cates (LW), Omaha Lancers (USHL)
2017 5th Round Pick, 137th overall

A quiet weekend for the 18 year old. Cates still sits at 2 points (1 G, 1 A) in 7 games.

Matej Tomek (G), Waterloo Black Hawks (USHL)
2015 3rd Round Pick, 90th overall

  • 10/20 - 1 GA, 20 saves
  • 10/21 - DNP

Albeit it’s just two games, Tomek does have a .933 SV%. With games like these, hopefully the Slovakian is paving his way to not only more starts, but a home for next season.

Subject: Update on Nigel Bradham

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Good news for the Eagles linebacker.

Last year during Philadelphia’s bye week, Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham was arrested for bringing a loaded gun to the airport. Bradham was originally charged with a second degree misdemeanor, but now TMZ Sports is reporting the charges have been dropped.

We spoke with Bradham's attorney, Adam Swickle, who tells us, "The state had no case against him and they found that it wasn’t something he should be criminally sanctioned for."

Swickle pointed out Bradham had a valid concealed weapons permit and didn't intend to break the law. Simple accident.

The gun arrest certainly wasn’t a good look for Bradham, especially since he was already arrested for alleged assault a month earlier in July 2016. These incidents prompted Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz to essentially call Bradham a “dumbass.”

Legally speaking, however, Bradham is now relatively in the clear. In addition to the gun charges being dropped, the linebacker accepted a deferred prosecution program in relation to his alleged assault case. This means the case will be kept out of court and he won’t face any jail time if he meets the requirements of the program.

Bradham is still subject to punishment via the NFL’s personal conduct policy, but there’s been no indication he’s going to face discipline from the league.

Bradham is coming off arguably the best game of his career in which he had 10 tackles in Philadelphia’s win over the Panthers. The team needs him to stay out of trouble moving forward so his on-field status isn’t jeopardized.

Subject: Ronald Darby Update: Eagles cornerback might return in Week 8

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Out vs. Washington, but in vs. the 49ers?

I have some bad news and good news.

The bad news is that Eagles starting cornerback Ronald Darby will NOT play in Philadelphia’s Week 7 game against the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football, according to NFL insider Mike Garafolo.

The good news is that the Eagles might get Darby back for their Week 8 game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, October 29.

Darby returned to practice this week for the first time since suffering a fractured ankle in Week 1. The 23-year-old defensive back was limited in practice all week and was ruled questionable heading into Monday’s game. Doug Pederson originally said the “stars would need to align” in order for Darby to play against Washington, so it’s not very surprising that Darby is out.

Still, it’s a good sign for the Eagles that Darby is at least close to returning. He’s clearly the team’s most talented corner when healthy.

With that said, Jalen Mills and Rasul Douglas haven’t been total disasters at corner in his absence. They’re far from Pro Bowl talents, but they’ve relatively held their own on the outside. Veteran corner Patrick Robinson is having a great year in the slot and he’s taken some reps on the outside as well.

Getting Darby back at some point will give the Eagles a boost on defense. That’s great news for a team that’s already performing well.

The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced their inactives list for their Week 7 game against the Washington Redskins.

Starting cornerback Ronald Darby is officially OUT, as expected. There’s a chance he returns to the field next week, however.

Linebacker Mychal Kendricks is also OUT. He suffered a hamstring injury during practice this week. With Kendricks out, Eagles rookie fifth-round pick Nate Gerry is ACTIVE. Philly signed him from their practice squad to their active roster just earlier this week.

The two other players ruled questionable on the Eagles’ final injury report are all active: running back Wendell Smallwood and linebacker Jordan Hicks.

Smallwood is back for the first time since suffering a knee injury in Week 4. He’s the team’s best receiving back so his presence gives Carson Wentz another option in the passing attack.

In an interesting development at left guard, Chance Warmack is back to being a healthy scratch. The Eagles activated him for the first time in Week 3. He made one start and split time with Stefen Wisniewski before progressively losing snaps. With Warmack down, the more versatile Isaac Seumalo is active. Good job, Eagles.

Shelton Gibson, Justin Hamilton, Steven Means, and Elijah Qualls are also inactive as depth players.

Here’s a look at all seven inactive names.

Philadelphia Eagles Inactive List

CB Ronald Darby - Injury.

LB Mychal Kendricks - Injury.

OG Chance Warmack - Backup guard.

DE Steven Means - Fifth defensive end.

DT Justin Hamilton - Fifth defensive tackle.

DT Elijah Qualls - Sixth defensive tackle.

WR Shelton Gibson - Sixth wide receiver.

Washington Redskins Inactive List

Starting cornerback Josh Norman is OUT for Washington, as expected. Fellow starting corner Bashaud Breeland is ACTIVE but he’s wearing a knee brace and doesn’t appear to be 100% healthy. The Eagles might look to test him early on.
