Subject: Donovan McNabb Says Jared Goff Might be the Best Quarterback in the NFC

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

Donovan McNabb is the arguably the greatest quarterback in Eagles franchise history. There’s no disputing that. But there was always that head-scratching quote or goofy air-guitar type of moment that made fans wonder what exactly was going through his head. This morning he dropped a Jared Goff hot take: McNabb says Goff may be the…

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.

There’s a Chick-fil-A joke to be made here, but I’m not going to do it. There is a very good possibility that 3-4 years from now, when Markelle Fultz is selected to his second All-Star team, we will look back at this weird start as a mere blip on the radar. Plenty of NBA stars…

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.

Subject: Eagles-Redskins Inactives: Jordan Hicks ACTIVE, Mychal Kendricks OUT

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

Looking at who’s in and who’s out.

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.

Posted by Bleeding Green Nation: For Philadelphia Eagles Fans on Monday, October 23, 2017

FIRST QUARTER

Eagles win the coin toss and elect to defer. Washington receives first.

Jake Elliott’s opening kickoff goes for a touchback. Jalen Mills and Patrick Robinson (not Rasul Douglas) get the start on the outside in base defense. Washington picks up a big gain through the air from Kirk Cousins to Vernon Davis. Jordan Hicks, who entered the game injured, gets hurt two plays into the game. That hurts with Mychal Kendricks already out. Joe Walker in for Hicks. Washington moves into the red zone. 3rd-and-8 at the 15-yard line. Cousins’ throw is short of the sticks. Washington settles for a field goal. Washington leads, 3-0.

Eagles take over on offense. Wendell Smallwood gets the start at running back. Carson Wentz’s first target goes to Alshon Jeffery. The catch gets called back due to offensive pass interference. Really weak call. Then a Smallwood run gets called due to a block in the back. Then a Wentz scramble gets called back due to holding. Then the Eagles gets flagged for 12-men in the huddle. What the hell, did Pete Morelli show up to this game? Eagles fans are pissed. Lots of booing. Wentz throws deep and gets picked off. His throw for Torrey Smith was way off. Basically an arm punt.

Washington gets to 3rd-and-2 on their next series. Nigel Bradham blitzes and hits Cousins as he throws. The ball flies up into the air. Lucky to not be picked off.

Washington punts and gets called for holding. Doug Pederson makes Washington re-do the punt and Kenjon Barner breaks off a 22-yard return. The penalty ended up costing Washington 32 yards.

Eagles take over at their own 45-yard line. Wentz’s pass to Brent Celek is knocked down by Quinton Dunbar. Barner runs for a very shot gain. Wentz is sacked on third down by Ryan Kerrigan. Three-and-out. Here’s an idea: how about plays that don’t go to some of the team’s least threatening offensive players?

Jamison Crowder fumbles the punt return (forced by Kamu Grugier-Hill) and Washington is very lucky to recover at their own 7-yard line.

Washington moves the ball towards midfield but Derek Barnett sacks Cousins on 3rd-and-2 to force a punt. Nice job by the rook, who celebrated with a crossover into a between the legs dribble before taking a shot. Probably honoring the Sixers.

Eagles take over deep in their own territory due to a holding penalty on the punt. Wentz hits Jeffery on third down to move the chains. Wentz scrambles for 11 yards and the Eagles get an additional 15-yards due to a facemask penalty on Washington. Who knew the other team was allowed to get flagged?

SECOND QUARTER

Wentz gets facemasked again. Another 15 yards. Then Wentz takes a bad sack for a loss of 10. Had room to scramble right, but tried to cut back inside and make the defender miss. Not great. Nelson Agholor makes a catch to put the Eagles into field goal range but short of the sticks. (No call on a late hit on Agholor as the receiver was out of bounds.) Jake Elliott’s 50-yard field goal is ... good. Was there any doubt? Tie game, 3-3.

Vinny Curry loses backside contain and Cousins scrambles for a first. Then the Washington QB hits Josh Doctson and Vernon Davis on back-to-back plays to move into the red zone. Cousins getting too much time in the pocket. Plus awful tackling after the catch. Washington right tackle Morgan Moses gets hurt and has to leave the field. T.J. Clemmings in at right tackle. Eagles get flagged for illegal hands to the first. 1st-and-goal for Washington. Cousins hits a wide open Chris Thompson for an easy touchdown. No one even bothered to cover him. Barnett thought he got held bad on the play and argued with the refs to no avail. Washington leads, 10-3.

Eagles take back over. Wentz’s deep throw to Jeffery is a little too far in front. Turns out that Jeffery was getting held multiple times on the play, but no call. Really bad job by the refs. Jon Gruden thought it was a good no-call, lol. Eagles go three-and-out again.

Malcolm Jenkins makes a good stop on 3rd-and-1. Washington has to punt.

Eagles take over and get a first down thanks to some runs from Smallwood. Wentz takes another sack where he holds the ball for too long. Then Wentz holds the ball long again ... but it’s a 64-YARD TOUCHDOWN! Perfect deep ball to Mack Hollins. What a throw. All the air yards. Hollins has been great for the Eagles this year, man. Constantly making the most of his snaps. Get the man some more playing time. Tie game, 10-10.

Philadelphia’s defense forces a stop on and the Eagles get the ball back with under two minutes to go.

Here’s a great thing unrelated to the game: Jon Dorenbos makes an appearance at the Linc! Standing ovation from the fans. Great to see him.

Wentz scrambles for a decent gain and a defensive penalty adds five yards. Then Wentz hits Ertz on a ROPE down the field for a 46-yard gain into the red zone. Wow. What a throw. A penalty from Jason Kelce sets the Eagles back a little, but the Eagles get to the 1-yard line after a fade throw to Jeffery draws pass interference. LeGarrette Blount’s carry goes for a 3-yard loss. Then Wentz hits Ertz on a quick out for a touchdown! Ertz broke a tackle from Swearinger and got in to the end zone. Clutch. Eagles lead, 17-10.

Washington kneels to end the first half.

THIRD QUARTER

Eagles get the ball to start the third.

Wentz hits Agholor along the sideline, great throw. Jason Peters is down after the play. Oh no. He’s in pain. The entire team comes out to the field to see him before he gets carted off. Eagles fans chant “Let’s Go Peters!” as he leaves the field.

Halapoulivaati Vaitai takes over at left tackle with Lane Johnson staying on the right ride. Wentz takes off for a 21-yard gain. Then he hitz Ertz over the middle to get the Eagles at Washington’s 6-yard line. Vaitai jumps early and a false start pushes the Eagles back. No matter. Wentz somehow avoids pressure and floats a pass up to Corey Clement (!) in the end zone. The running back keeps his feet in for touchdown. What an unreal play. How did Wentz do that? The guy is unreal. He’s the NFL MVP. All his haters gotta take a HUGE L for being so down on him. Eagles lead, 24-10.

Washington can’t get much going on their next drive. They move the ball a little before having to punt.

Nothing going for the Eagles either. Too conservative. Philly has to send out Donnie Jones to punt.

Cousins scrambles on 3rd-and-long and picks up a first. It looked like he was short and it should’ve been 4th-and-1. Bad spot from the refs. Probably should have challegned that, Doug. Jenkins sacks Cousins on second down, but Cousins slings it for a first down at the 5-yard line. Cousins hits Jordan Reed for a touchdown. C’mon, D. Eagles lead, 24-17.

FOURTH QUARTER

Wentz is literally doing things that I don’t even know how to describe at this point. It looked like he was going to get sacked in a pile ... but he somehow escapes and run for a big gain. Then Clement picks up a first. Then Wentz hits Jeffery on a perfect touch pass. Then Wentz hits Ertz on a run-pass option for a first. Then Wentz hits Agholor for a TOUCHDOWN. Holy shitttttt maannnnn. Eagles fans at the Linc chanting “M-V-P!” after that score. Eagles lead, 31-17.

Cox sacks Cousins to bring up 2nd-and-17. Washington gets some yards back on a Thompson screen. But then Kurt Cousins throws a pick right to Corey Graham. Womp womp.

Eagles pound the rock to run some clock and settle for a 42-yard Elliott field goal. Philly takes a three-possession lead with 6:19 remaining in the game. Eagles lead, 34-17.

Washington drives down the field and scores a touchdown. Cousins to Reed. Ugly tackling on the drive. Eagles lead, 34-24.

Washington goes for the onside kick but Ertz recovers it. Eagles take over at the 50-yard line with 3:16 left. Clement takes the hand-off and fumbles ... geez. Very fortunate to recover. First Washington timeout. Then Blount runs up the middle for a 21-yard gain. Beast. Great blocking, too. 4-yard Blount carry to take it to the 2-minute warning. Blount takes it for three yards. Second Washington timeout. Blount stopped for a 1-yard loss on third down. Third Washington timeout with 1:50 remaining. Elliott misses a 45-yard field goal ... GASP!

Barnett sacks Cousins for his second takedown of the night. Washington loses yards on 2nd down. Thompson picks some up on third, but not enough for a first. THEN COUPONS THROWS IT OUT OF BOUNDS ON 4TH DOWN! Lmao. The game was over, sure, but he didn’t even give his team a chance.

Eagles take over. VICTORY FORMATION.

FINAL SCORE

Eagles win, 34-24!

THE UNDISPUTED BEST TEAM IN THE NFL!

Subject: Eagles vs. Redskins: 5 winners and 5 losers from Monday Night Football

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

Winners and losers from a big MNF win!

Whew! Back-to-back prime-time games and the Eagles have looked fantastic. Here’s a look at the winners and losers from this one.

Winners

Eagles

6-1. 3-0 in the NFC East. Best record in football. After being down 10-3 midway through the second, the Eagles offense turned it on and never looked back. Next up: the winless 49ers and rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard.

Carson Wentz

What can I say that I haven't already said? Wentz has been remarkable. In his last three games, he’s thrown 11 touchdowns and only two interceptions. Much like last week, Wentz started off slow and settled in after taking a few hits. He’s making plays that physically seem impossible and has established himself as the clear MVP front-runner. Wentz is undoubtedly a franchise QB, and has given the Philadelphia fans true hope.

Mack Hollins

Only one catch, but Hollins is making plays at crucial moments. His touchdown tied the game and gave the offense a much needed jolt. Having guys like Hollins that are further down the depth chart, but can make plays when their number is called is what propels contenders.

Derek Barnett

He’s likely going to be fined for an early hit, but he notched his first two solo sacks as we’re starting to see the guy the Eagles thought they were getting when they drafted him in the first round.

Philadelphia fans

The Eagles are off to their best start since their Super bowl run in 2004, and as fans we have legitimate hope. Carson Wentz is the real deal, the Eagles defense is overcoming injuries to still play at a high level, and Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid are getting us off our feet. It looks like our years of suffering are coming to an end.

Losers

Redskins

Washington falls to 3-3, and 0-2 in the division. Free agent signing Terrelle Pryor looks like a dud and Kirk Cousins looks like Cousin Eddie when he’s blitzed.

Health

Jordan Hicks, Jason Peters, and if you add in the injuries along the offensive line that Washington suffered, it’s not pretty. The Eagles are no strangers to injuries, as they've played without Fletcher Cox and Ronald Darby for numerous games, but they lost two leaders. Hicks went down on the second play, with speculation being an Achilles injury and Peters went down later in the game. The Peters injury is a tougher pill to swallow because he’s played at an All-Pro level for the 127th year, protecting Wentz’s blindside. Hopefully neither injury is significant, but it doesn't look good right now :(.

The rest of the NFC East

Hope that Dallas, New York and Washington have fun chasing the six seed and a first round playoff loss, that is if they can beat out the NFC South and the Rams/Seahawks.

RT Armageddon 2.0 (AKA Wentzageddon) is coming, and we have the screenshots.

Subject: Jason Peters Injury: Eagles left tackle carted off after hurting knee

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

Not good.

Eagles left tackle Jason Peters suffered what appears to be a significant injury during Philadelphia’s win over the Washington Redskins on Monday night.

Peters went down early in the third quarter after Carson Wentz completed a pass to Nelson Agholor. It looked like a Washington defensive lineman fell onto his knee. Peters laid on the ground in visible pain, clutching his knee before a cart came out to take him to the locker room.

I can’t stress enough how Peters’ teammates have a tremendous amount of respect for him. Every single player was taking a knee when he was on the ground. Then the whole Eagles sideline came over to him as he was getting carted off. That’s not something you see for just any player. Peters is a future Hall of Famer.

The severity of Peters’ injury remains to be seen. There haven’t been any official updates yet. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson declined to give information on his status after the game.

Halapoulivaati Vaitai filled in during Peters’ absence. It’s possible the Eagles could keep him there moving forward. Otherwise they could choose to move Lane Johnson to the left side and stick Big V at right tackle.

Losing Peters would be a major blow to this team. The Bodyguard earned his nickname for a reason. He’s still great at protecting the quarterback and opening holes in the run game.

One also has to wonder if Peters has played his final snap in the NFL. He turned 36 years old in January.

It’d be awful to see him go out like this. Here’s hoping for the best.

If it was the last of him, Eagles fans gave him a classy farewell.

Stay tuned for more update on the Peters situation.

Subject: Jordan Hicks Injury: Eagles linebacker reportedly suffers Achilles rupture

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

Awful.

Jason Peters wasn’t the only big name player to get hurt in Philadelphia’s win over the Washington Redskins on Monday night. Starting middle linebacker Jordan Hicks went down after just a couple snaps in the game.

Hicks limped off the field before being worked on the trainer’s table. Then a cart came to take him to the locker room. Hicks gave a thumbs up to the crowd, but he was seen wearing a boot and walking on crutches after the game. It appears NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Derrick Gunn is reporting an Achilles rupture for Hicks.

If true, Hicks is done for the season.

Hicks came into Monday night’s game dealing with a calf injury. He had said the calf injury came about because he was overcompensating while dealing with an ankle injury that occurred in Week 3.

Hicks obviously has an extensive injury report, which is very unfortunate because he’s a very talented player when healthy. He’s also a key member of Jim Schwartz’s unit as the middle linebacker who gets the radio in his helmet and lines up the defense.

With Hicks potentially out for the year, the Eagles could look to rely a lot upon Nigel Bradham and Mychal Kendricks. Kendricks, who is prone to soft-tissue injuries, missed Monday’s game with a hamstring issue. Philly will hope he can come back soon.

Other linebackers on the roster include Najee Goode (Kendricks’ backup), Joe Walker, Kamu Grugier-Hill, and Nate Gerry. None of those players are very inspiring options.

The Eagles worked out three free agent linebackers last week, so it wouldn’t be surprising if they signed at least one of them in an effort to replace Hicks.

Stay tuned for more updates on this situation.
