Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …

Gregg Rosenthal: Eagles vs. Chiefs. Eagles fans will have no more complaints after their second surprise Super Bowl in six years. […] Marc Ross: Chiefs over Eagles. It’s the Andy Reid Bowl for the Lombardi Trophy! In the end, the Eagles’ Cinderella season hit midnight against the Chiefs, with the Kansas City experience and brilliance of MVP Patrick Mahomes winning. […] Marc Sessler: Chargers vs. Eagles.

Eagles are dark horse for Super Bowl, says Football Outsiders editor – Reuters
Put Aaron Schatz, creator and editor of Football Outsiders, on the bandwagon. Appearing on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” Tuesday morning, Schatz had the Eagles as his dark horse to reach Super Bowl LVII. Saïd Schatz: “I have a dark horse: The Philadelphia Eagles will leave the NFC. I love the people they added this offseason, Haason Reddick, James Bradberry, AJ Brown. I think Jalen Hurts can be pretty good with all the talent around him. And they have the easiest forecast schedule in the league by our numbers.

5 things to know about Eagles new safety CJ Gardner-Johnson – BGN
The Saints lost both of their starting safeties this offseason, with Marcus Williams joining the Baltimore Ravens in free agency and our mutual friend Malcolm Jenkins hanging him up in retirement. Even with that, and knowing that CJ has been with the organization for a few years, the Saints still decided to bring in two outside veterans as starting safeties in Marcus Maye and Tyrann Mathieu instead of trusting Garnder-Johnson. to manage one or the other. a full-time basis. The Saints front office has been above average in drafting and developing defensive backs over the past decade. Marcus Williams, Marshon Lattimore, Vonn Bell, CJ Gardner-Johnson, PJ Williams, Paulson Adebo… Apart from Lattimore, who was a future Defensive Rookie of the Year, none of these players were taken in the first round. If there’s one position where I tend to give the Saints’ scouting department the benefit of the doubt, it’s with defensive backs. If the Saints didn’t see Gardner-Johnson as a potential full-time safety, it’s entirely possible they’re wrong, but smart money says they’re not. Essentially, moving Gardner-Johnson to either full-time safety position seems like a situation where you could take the top 5 slots corners in the game and turn it into a solid Top 15 safety. I don’t know how the rest of the Eagles roster is shaping up, so it might be an improvement for the team, but I definitely think his floor is a lot lower if he moves to a full-time safety.

Eye on the Enemy #105: How Eagles’ roster is now Jalen Hurts-proof with Chauncey Gardner trade + their search for a 3rd QB – BGN Radio
John Stolnis explains how the Eagles’ roster is now being tested by Jalen Hurts with the trade of Chauncey Gardner, the injury of Dillard, their search for a 3rd QB and the signing of Sermon. Additionally, he analyzes Russell Wilson’s contract, the 49ers keeping Jimmy G and why so many NFL.com writers are high on the Eagles’ chances of winning the division and reaching the Super Bowl.

Eagles Player Review: RB Trey Sermon – PhillyVoice
Because Sermon isn’t adding a power element that’s obviously superior to current Eagles fullbacks, he probably won’t see much action early on. Sanders will be “the guy,” with Boston Scott backing him up and Kenny Gainwell likely to get passing looks. I imagine Sermon will be inactive on game day while he learns of the infraction. If the Eagles get hurt running down the road (as they usually do), we might see Sermon then.

More work on the list – Iggles Blitz
Sermon played at Oklahoma and Ohio State while in college. I projected him as a third-round pick and of course that’s where he went. For some reason, things didn’t go well for him in SF. From the reading I did, it seems the coaches were frustrated with his style. Instead of being decisive and hitting the holeshot, he was looking for big plays. Sermon has great playing ability, but the SF coaches want the guys to be as NS as possible. This description also fits Miles Sanders. They’re nearly identical in size, so the Eagles need to think Sermon is a player they can get good production from. Sanders rushed for 2,439 yards and averaged 5.1 ypc in his time with the Eagles. At 6-0, 215, he has solid size. Sermon is strong enough to break tackles and he will run hard. It’s not Jordan Howard, but he doesn’t fall on first touch.

Roob sightings: Biggest concern heading into season – NBCSP
7. Maybe Chauncey Gardner-Johnson will be ready to go in eight days, maybe he can learn defense and acclimatize in a week and a half. But it wouldn’t surprise me at all if the Eagles made Anthony Harris a game-day elevation in Detroit and pitched him face Marcus Epps to safety and gave CJGJ a little more time to learn defense and get on. comfortable. Harris was a starter last year, he’s taken on every first-team rep this summer, and while he hasn’t been a playmaker, he knows the defense and isn’t going to get it wrong. The Eagles can raise Harris up to three times if they need to, which would buy Gardner-Johnson some time. Harris could become the first player in NFL history to start all camp, get released, sign to the practice squad, and then start a season opener. But it may be the best option for the Eagles.

Howie Roseman has a message for fans as he previews the 2022 season – PE.com
“We know that,” Roseman said. “Every time you get content, you get your ass kicked. I don’t think we ever felt like we had a ‘good enough’ position. I feel like we are a better football team, I feel like we have a better culture than the team that ended last year and it’s a big honor for our staff football operations – the whole building because everyone plays a part – and for our personal coaching. This is a difficult work. This does not guarantee anything. This does not guarantee any victory. “We have to keep looking for ways to improve.”

Cowboys have entered negotiations with Jason Peters in hopes of signing him – Blogging The Boys
The Dallas Cowboys have moved closer to signing free agent offensive tackle Jason Peters. The former Philadelphia Eagles (and Chicago Bears) player went to the Star to schedule a physical appointment and have meetings with the front office. It all went well, so the team and Peters moved into negotiations.

Washington injury updates: Kam Curl reportedly has thumb injury that may have required surgery – Hogs Haven
Starting safety Kamren Curl was at practice on Thursday in street clothes and wore a sling/cast on his right arm. He hasn’t practiced since Sunday when he left practice with coaches, and wasn’t one of the few starters to get playing time against the Ravens in the final preseason game of Washington. Head coach Ron Rivera was asked about Kam Curl’s injury status, but he veered off course and used the NFL’s injury reporting policy to avoid giving any sort of update. Teams do not have to provide player injury status during the season until game week. The Commanders first injury report for their season/home opener will be released on Wednesday. Athletic’s Ben Standing reports that the injury is in Kam Curl’s thumb and he may have needed surgery to fix it. No timetable was given for his return to the field, and no date was given for when the operation could have taken place.

College football Saturday: Giants general manager Joe Schoen to scout at Ohio State against Notre Dame? – Large Blue View
All eyes will be on the OSU offense as quarterback CJ Stroud pushes for sole possession of the “QB-1” spot on the scorecards. Given the questions surrounding the future of the Giants quarterback position, it makes perfect sense for Schoen to be in this game. Wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba will also be looking to impress the NFL and build on his outstanding performance in 2021 to lock in the top of the wide receiver depth chart.
