Eagles News: Jalen Hurts draws Donovan McNabb settlement


Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles Left…

Beginner comparisons with a twist – Iggles Blitz
2 – QB Jalen injured – Donovan McNabb. Both players were outstanding dual threat QBs in college. They have written big numbers and led their teams to many successes. They have similar builds (Hurts is 6-1, 222 and McNabb was 6-2, 225). McNabb was the more polished passer while Hurts played in a more explosive offense. Every player came to the Eagles with some controversy. McNabb was a player most people wanted, but there was a vocal minority that wanted the team to take RB Ricky Williams (How crazy does that look now?). McNabb was booed by the fans who came to the draft and he never let go of that fact. Hurts didn’t have to deal with personal booing, but he did have social media, which could be worse. Hurts was bench tested in college and that should give him the mental and emotional toughness to deal with negative things fans throw in his way. McNabb was an elite contender and franchise QB. Hurts is more of a project so please don’t see it the way I say he will turn into a borderline HOF player like McNabb was. They have similar builds, skills, and backgrounds.

Tom Brady clearly still isn’t over the fact that the Patriots lost to the Eagles in Super Bowl LII – archyde
It is said that “time heals all wounds,” but that was not exactly the case with Tom Brady. The future Hall of Fame quarterback is still clearly bothered by the New England Patriots’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII.

Mailbag: Should the Eagles swap Jets S Jamal Adams? – PhillyVoice
So I surely agree that he would have a huge impact on the Eagles’ defense. However, as you suspected, you probably already know my answer to that. You can’t afford it. Adams wants a contract extension now, or he wants to be traded, and although the Jets have said they are not interested in trading him, they would allegedly listen to offers which means they are likely interested in trading him. I can’t vouch for Michael Irvin’s coverage, but this compensation sounds about right. […] And on top of that, the Eagles would have to make Adams the highest paid security in the NFL, which will cost at least $ 15 million a season that they simply don’t have available.

Eagles Mailbag: 2020 1st Starter Pick to be Downgraded – NBCSP
That’s an interesting question and first two positions came to mind: cornerback and safety. Let’s start with corner. At the moment it looks like Avonte Maddox is the starter drawn in the CB2 spot. He hasn’t won the job yet, but he’ll likely get his first try this summer at training camp. I think Sidney Jones has a chance of winning the job but if he can’t I wonder how long Maddox‘s leash would be. And in safety Jalen Mills will get the first chance to start Malcolm Jenkins‘old place next to it Rodney McLeod, but the Eagles signed too Will parks and designed K’Von Wallace. Because of the potential for rotation, I’m not sure if this would be as much of a bench as a leak. We have no idea how Mills will take on this new role, and when he struggles there seem to be two viable options behind him Parks and Wallace.

NFL has a “broken system” for recruiting minorities. How to fix the problem – FMIA
The NFL did a smart thing by removing the barrier to coordinators’ mobility. Until the vote last week, teams were able to prevent top assistants from conducting interviews as coordinators elsewhere. No longer. That would have been allowed by the Chiefs quarterback trainer Mike Kafka to be the Eagles’ offensive coordinator that year. Kafka was denied the chance by the chiefs. Allowing an assistant to Team X to interview for a coordinator position with one of the other 31 teams is a long overdue rule.

Matt Burke: The World’s Most Interesting Run Game Coordinator / Defensive Line Coach – PE.com
He graduated from Ivy League school. He proposed marriage to his wife while hiking with gorillas in Uganda. He once called a literal pantry his office. He is the most interesting run game coordinator / defensive line coach in the world. He’s Matt Burke. Yes, the title of the World’s Most Interesting Run-Game Coordinator / Defensive Line Coach is long and fairly specific, but how many other NFL coaches have traveled to an estimated 40 countries and almost entered medical school? Burke’s path to this point in his career is also interesting. It’s a journey that began in his hometown of Hudson, Massachusetts.

3) Zach Ertz – The NFL leader at close-end receptions in the first seven seasons of his career (525) has emerged as one of the best in the position thanks to his polished route running skills and sticky hands. Ertz has led the Eagles in catches and yards for each of the past four seasons, while thriving as the team’s captain in passing. # 86 routinely wins his one-on-one matches against linebackers and defensive backs by using his wobble and speed on short surfaces to create space against close cover. A dominant pass-catch tight-end with the ability to play as a traditional Y or a flex playmaker, Ertz has been tacitly the Eagles’ # 1 receiving option for years.

Thoughts on the concept of trading with Jamal Adams – Over The Cap
The rumor mill is simmering once again about the safety of Jets All Pro Jamal Adams as the Jets appear to be reluctant to give him an extension, which Adams reportedly again made very angry with the organization. There have been trade rumors again denied by sources near the jets, but I think these are interesting situations and well worth exploring. Players like Adams are very difficult to look at at times. On one side there is the player and there are really small holes in his game. He’s arguably the best overall safety factor in the NFL. He plays in the penalty area, can storm passers-by a little more than others and can cover well enough in the secondary area. He is currently the best player in the Jets. However, sometimes being the best player on a bad team doesn’t have the same worth as the same player on a good team. The Jets have been 16-32 since Adams arrived in New York. His best security has little impact on the overall success or failure of the team. That’s not a blow to him, just that security can only do so much to increase a team’s chances of winning. Adams at the height of his career isn’t going to make the Jets a 10-win team. This is also one of the reasons the league values ​​safety at the lower end of the salary spectrum, essentially on par with running backs and tight ends.

Exploring the Randy Gregory Saga and How It Could Affect the Cowboys’ defenses if reinstated – Blogging The Boys
When Randy Gregory Joined the NFL Draft in 2015, expectations for the defensive end of Nebraska were sky high. In his two years college ball, Gregory recorded 119 tackles in total, 26.5 tackles for loss and an outstanding 16.5 sacks. This formidable game led SI.com to praise him on their draft profile, citing that he could be the NFL’s next big edge rusher. When Gregory failed a drug test on the combine, red flags began to appear. The team has questioned its commitment to football and whether it was worth a premium choice. This caused concern Gregory to drop from a likely selection in the first round to 60th place in the second round. Straight into Jerry’s lap Jones and the Dallas Cowboys. Jones was looking for the next one DeMarcus merchandise, and thought he might have found it in Gregory.

We wish both parties the best and look forward to when the Falcons travel to New Orleans in 2020 and either play Superdome in strip chat, or maybe in Dave’s Vape and Smoke Shop Superdome, Huge Ass Beers Superdome or whatever other facility in New Orleans are ready to damage their brand by associating with the saints.

Brett Toth of the Cardinals fulfills the Army’s commitment to the Arizona State ROTC – ESPN
It’s mid-March and the Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman Brett Toth is seated at a conference table in the middle of a room in the Social Sciences Building on the Arizona state campus. He holds a red pen in his right hand and marks intermediate exams. It’s a few days before the spring break starts and about a week before the campus closes for the semester due to the coronavirus pandemic. A pile of papers sits in front of Toth. Toth has a petrified face and is calm, focused on the task at hand. He’s already been to a weightlift at Cardinals headquarters in Tempe, but that morning Toth traded his Cardinals gear for another type of uniform: army hats. Toth, a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, is a lieutenant in the U.S. Army and as part of the Department of Defense’s decision to allow him to play in the NFL, Toth must meet his active duty requirements. For him, it’s a job with the Arizona State Army ROTC. [BLG Note: The Cardinals claimed Toth off waivers from the Eagles last year.]
