Circumstances Matter - Iggles Blitz
With Ryan as head coach, the Jets were a defensive team. Offense was the red-headed stepchild, so to speak. Sanchez had 3 offensive coordinators in his 5 years with the Jets. Even worse, Brian Schottenheimer, Tony Sparano and Marty Mornhinweg could not be more different. Skill players were a mixed bag. When he did have talent, it was high maintenance players like Santonio Holmes and Plaxico Burress. Or in 2012…the Jets leading WR was Jeremy Kerley. Let’s just say James Thrash would have been a welcome addition to that offense.

Game Review: Eagles Offense Vs. Patriots - Birds 24/7
I'll admit I had the backup QB situation listed as a concern when the summer began, but Mark Sanchez has really played well. Against New England, he was 11-for-12 for 117 yards, two touchdowns and a score. Early on, Sanchez showed good calmness in the pocket. The Patriots had some pressure up the middle, but he took his time before dumping the ball off to Darren Sproles for a 7-yard gain. Later, he did a nice job of putting the ball up for grabs for Ertz on a 20-yard completion downfield. Sanchez put the ball on the money in between defenders to Jordan Matthews for an 18-yard completion. And his pass to Momah in the end zone was perfect, even though it bounced off of Momah's hands and into Arrelious Benn's.

Kelly said Henery was "really good" in training camp, and he is 9 for 9 on extended extra points that are similar to 33-yard field goals. But Henery's missed field goal did not evoke confidence, especially since he is coming off the worst season of his career. He hit 82.1 percent of his field goals, which ranked 22 out of 32 NFL kickers in 2013.

Chip Kelly says Eagles need to see more production out of Marcus Smith -
This past Friday, the Eagles got Smith plenty of reps, as he registered 73 snaps against the New England Patriots. What the Eagles didn't get out of Smith's extended playing time was results. "If you are going to play that many plays," Kelly said, "we are going to need more production out of you."
