My Thoughts

After watching both preseason games and hours of training camp I have accumulated a bunch of thought and opinions about our 2010-2011 Philadelphia Eagles.

 

I'll start with my positive thoughts: 

  • Sims and Bradley look great and ready to dominate this upcoming year.
  • Lindley and Cooper look like the mid round steals of this draft class. (Maybe even Keenan Clayton)
  • Mallett has been surprising people in these two games so far..lets see if he keeps it up.
  • Dmitri Patterson looks very good this year (much better than some others...see below)
  • Brandon Graham looks like the man we were all hoping for. He has a tremendous motor and the hand speed of a magician.
  • Nate Allen has put his talent and maturity on full display and the bleeding green nation is loving it (except for that one failed tackle attempt this evening)
  • I am very pleased with Rocca and Akers' performances these past two games.
Now, my negative thoughts:
  • Juqua Parker looks awful against the run and at best mediocre versus the pass.
  • Joselio Hanson looks even worse.
  • The offensive line has taken terrible to a whole 'nother level, failing to line up not in the backfield.
  • The red zone offense has to get better. But, as an optimistic thinker, I have to blame it on the vanilla plays and stupid penalties.
  • McCoy is dancing too much. It looked like he was running more downfield in training camp but in the games he is still dancing like a little fairy.
  • Vick has really been killing us in these two games. Turnover after turnover he just looks worse and worse.
  • The special teams units have got to be kidding me (minus Akers and Rocca). The kickoff coverage team blows contain nearly every time and the punt and kickoff returns are failing to gain even mediocre-like yards.
  • Kafka can't throw the long ball. 
  • I apologize to all you Chad Hall lovers out there, but he isn't good enough for this team. He isn't the Danny Amendola of last year. Amendola was better. I like Hall as a person but he just isn't talented enough. His punt and kick returns are average at best and his plays that people rant and rave about have all come against broken coverages by the fourth stringers. 
  • Jordan has been looking good but tonight he looked awful.
In Conclusion Here are My Thoughts:
  1. Brandon Graham should be starting over Juqua Parker right now.
  2. Parker should be cut....yes...cut
  3. Patterson should be the nickel corner and Lindley should be the dime corner. Joselio should be in a battle with Macho for the fifth spot.
  4. Jordan and Clayton should be in a battle for the SAM LB spot (50/50)
  5. Laws should have the third DT spot on lockdown by now.
  6. Cole and Graham should be the starters. With Fokou, Tapp, DTO, and Sapp...yes. Sapp making the team.
  7. Austin Howard is making this team no matter what happens. Dunlap and McCuller should be battling 50/50 for the other spot.
  8. McGlynn is better than Cole at center plain and simple. He starts until Jackson is back.
  9. We NEED Herremans back in game form. 
  10. Andrews needs to pick up his game or a trade needs to be made. The o-line looks horrendous. 
  11. Wide Receiver Depth Chart: Jackson, Maclin, Avant, Cooper, Washington...thats it only five
  12. Buckley makes the team over Scott and Mallett because of special teams prominence.
  13. Ernie Sims is making the pro bowl this year.
