Checking Up on the WRs - Iggles Blitz
Josh Huff is the guy I’m most curious about. I know some fans are down on the guy, but he could end up being a real nice player. Huff has very good RAC skills. You could see his toughness as he broke multiple tackles last week and moved the chains. Huff had at least one catch of 20 or more yards in each game in his Senior season. He’s not a dynamic gamebreaker, but if you get him the ball on a regular basis he can make some plays. I think Huff is pressing right now. He’s jonesing to make a big play. The harder you press, the more likely you are to make a mistake. Just play. The big plays will come.

Fan-Demonium: Beware The Desperate Team - PE.com
Honestly, I thought the Panthers made some very questionable moves in the offseason. Long-time left tackle Jordan Gross retired. They moved right tackle Byron Bell to the left side to replace him, but Bell is not a natural left tackle. They did add rookie guard Trai Turner, but injuries have limited him to just three starts and he is out for Monday night. Forget about depth, there just isn't a whole lot of talent on the Panthers' line. A line can overachieve if they stay healthy and build chemistry. That's just not happening this year for the Panthers.

Three-And-Out: Eagles-Panthers Predictions - Birds 24/7
Even though the quarterback situation is a bit of a mystery and the Eagles are turning the ball over at a high rate, I still think they win this one pretty comfortably. The offense started to regain its identity with the run game last week, and I expect that to continue against a defense that's allowing 4.8 YPC. The offensive line is healthier than it's been in awhile, and the flexibility the Eagles have in getting contributions from three different running backs is huge. My guess is Kelly will lean on the run game and won't ask Sanchez to do too much.

Eagles LB Acho gets his chance to step up - Inquirer
The first thing Emmanuel Acho did, after he learned DeMeco Ryans had ruptured an Achilles tendon last Sunday, was to assess what the injury meant for Emmanuel Acho. This was not at all a selfish thing for him to do. It was natural and practical and essential.

Avant ready for return to Philadelphia - AP
Jason Avant lasted far longer in Philadelphia than the No. 81 he replaced and no player received higher praise on his way out the door. Avant returns to Lincoln Financial Field on Monday night when the struggling Carolina Panthers (3-5-1) visit the Eagles (6-2). His return to Philadelphia doesn't attract headlines the way DeSean Jackson's first game against the Eagles did earlier this season.

What is a distal clavicle fracture and how long will it keep out Eagles quarterback Nick Foles? - NJ.com
On Sunday, during FOX 1 pregame show, NFL insider Jay Glazer did a segment with Dr. Robert Klapper, in which they revealed that Foles has a distal clavicle fracture. Specifically, Foles fracture is on the outside of the bone, which is worse than the inside.

Mosher's scouting report: Eagles-Panthers - CSN Philly
You may have seen the makings of the Eagles' offense over the next six or seven weeks in that 70-yard, third-quarter drive against the Texans that featured nothing but runs down the throat of the Houston defense. Chip Kelly wants to run, finally has a stable of healthy running backs and now has historically turnover-prone Mark Sanchez leading his offense while Nick Foles is out for a while with a broken collarbone.

Giants-Seahawks Final Score: Five things we learned today - Big Blue View
I don't know if Tom Coughlin is losing his job after this season, or right now whether or not he deserves to. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell has to go. The Giants gave up 510 yards of total offense, have given up no less than 423 in their last four games and have surrendered 34.0 points per game during their four-game losing streak. They have allowed 400 yards or more six times this season.
