Eagles News: Howie Roseman drops NFL GM rankings
Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …
2021 NFL GM Rankings – NBC Sports Edge
16) Really, what can I say other than “it got out of hand quickly”. 2017 was like the birth of a dynasty. Howie Roseman’s handpicked quarterback Carson Wentz was on his way to winning the MVP title until he tore his ACL in Week 14. What should have been a disaster ruining the game. season proved to be a slowdown as the Eagles won their first Super Bowl in franchise history. . That’s how good the 53-man roster was. Until it’s too good to be true. The skill body aged in the blink of an eye, the offensive line was ravaged by injuries, and the secondary just never came together. Roseman’s best-laid plans fell apart in every way imaginable, right down to his potential centerpiece at Wentz, becoming one of the worst players in the league by 2020. A team that should have crushed the worst division football is now rebuilding for the third time in eight years since Andy Reid left. Roseman gave himself options with 19 draft picks over the past two springs, but 2020 first round Jalen Reagor already looks shaky, to the point that Roseman returned to Day 1 receiving well in April. Roseman also made the least inspiring head coach hiring of his career, with Nick Sirianni seemingly harmless to outsmart Chip Kelly and Doug Pederson. That, of course, might be the point after Pederson’s increasingly convoluted years, but that’s the charitable interpretation. The rise, fall, rise, fall of Roseman’s career arc is a vivid illustration of how quickly the NFL is coming to you: fast. [BLG Note: Roseman finished 4th in these GM rankings last year. Dropped 12 spots.]
Report: Zach Ertz to attend Eagles training camp, ‘great luck’ he makes this year’s squad – BGN
Maybe Ertz showing up to camp doesn’t necessarily guarantee he’ll be on the Eagles roster this year. Perhaps Ertz and / or the team are hoping that another team suffers a major stretch injury that will increase their value, similar to Sam Bradford’s situation in 2016. But mere “hope” doesn’t seem to be. the best strategy. There is also a chance that Ertz will get injured and the Eagles will be forced to pay his salary. It’s understandable that some fans are excited to see Ertz back. He’s one of the team’s biggest fan favorites. But while his return may benefit the team in 2021, it’s not the best long-term decision for the franchise. Beyond the question of his cap number, there is the impact of his return on Dallas Goedert. Goedert, who is entering a contract year, will he really love sharing pictures with Ertz again? Are the Eagles going to get a good read of what Goedert can do as TE1 if Ertz is around?

2020 Plus-Minus Reception: Stefon Diggs Returns and the Deep Threat – Football Outsiders
And, with that in mind, we look to Miles Sanders and his 54.9% catch rate. His -13.1 isn’t just the position record, it’s the only time we’ve ever seen a running back hit negative double digits. Eight drops on 53 targets is excruciating. It’s a huge drop from grace for a player who finished seventh receiving DYAR as a rookie, although you have to wonder in retrospect to what extent that 2019 success was based on big, unsustainable plays. For what it’s worth, Sanders had a -31.1% CPOE when targeted by Carson Wentz and a -8.5% CPOE when targeted by Jalen Hurts. It is conceivable that Sanders was just knocked down by the implosion of Wentz in 2020. Eagles fans better hope this is true, as the word out of camp is that Nick Sirianni is putting “more emphasis on the game at screen ”in 2021. If Sanders cannot recover from the falls, this bodes very badly for the future.
Questions Surrounding Every NFC East Team At The Start Of Training Camp – Blogging The Boys
There hasn’t been a bigger makeover in the NFC East than in Philadelphia this offseason, as head coach Doug Pederson and quarterback Carson Wentz were dumped, albeit in different abilities. Now it’s Nick Sirianni and Jalen Hurts’ show, at least for 2021, that raises the question of whether this show is even good or not.

Time is running out whatever run they had around their Super Bowl victory and now the young players are going to have to step up.

Bill Barnwell ranks Colts as having 5th worst ‘offensive weaponry’ in the league – Stampede Blue
Now it is true though. The Colts lack an elite # 1 wide alpha dog. The big name. However, for the Colts’ offensive arsenal, it is still strength in numbers. The squad includes star running back Jonathan Taylor and has some talent off with Hilton, Pittman Jr., Pascal and Campbell (* if he can stay healthy) – where each wide receiver brings a set of unique skills. Not to mention, the Nyheim Hines scatback is dangerous with his feet and hands as he is a versatile electric weapon in the backfield.
