Eagles News: Brandon Graham got flagged for saying something that wasn't even offensive

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 11/13/15.

Let's get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ...

Eagles' Brandon Graham explains taunting penalty vs. Dallas Cowboys -
Almost immediately flags came flying and Graham was called for taunting leading many to wonder what exactly the six-year veteran had said. Was it some sort of racial slur? Did the Michigan product swear at the opponent?  Nope.  "I just leaned over and said 'We set the edge here,'' Graham said following Wednesday's practice at the NovaCare Complex. "I looked up and I knew I was in trouble. I saw Coach was [ticked], I saw Fletcher Cox angry with me. I knew it was stupid and I won't be doing that again."

Too good to not post again.

Dez Bryant joins the circus that is the 2015 Dallas Cowboys - PhillyVoice
The Dallas Cowboys are in full-on implosion mode. Never mind that they've lost their last six games and are all but buried from playoff contention -- the Cowboys' off-the-field craziness seemingly has another new twist on a near-daily basis.

Very Interesting Day - Iggles Blitz
It seems like there is a lot of stuff going on this week. Today we found out that Malcolm Jenkins played more than half of the Dallas game with a concussion. Obviously, that’s not a good thing. I think part of the love-hate relationship we all have with the game of football is wanting players to be tough, but also safe. Watching Andre Waters throw his body around like a human missile was highly entertaining for a decade. We loved that. Finding out years later that his style of play led to brain issues and caused him to commit suicide was tough to accept.

Dolphins at Eagles preview: Getting a close look at Philadelphia from Bleeding Green Nation - The Phinsider
Every week, we try to get an inside look at the Miami Dolphins' upcoming opponent through the eyes of a fan of that team. This week, that opponent is the Philadelphia Eagles, and those fans hang out at Bleeding Green Nation. Brandon Lee Gowton was kind enough to take a few minutes to answer my five questions about the Eagles. A big thank you to Gowton for taking the time to give us a look at the Eagles.

DeMarco Murray, run game key to Eagles' success - CSN Philly
Facts and numbers are tricky things. As a great man once said, you can use facts to prove anything that’s remotely true. But the correlation between the Eagles' run game and their success this season seems fairly straightforward. They’re better when they run often. They’re worse when they don’t. Consider: In four wins this year, the Eagles have averaged 36 carries and 159.8 rushing yards. They’ve scored six touchdowns on the ground in those victories. In four losses, those numbers dipped to averages of 20.3 carries and 83.5 rushing yards. They scored half the number of touchdowns in defeat.

Playing up-tempo against Cowboys, Eagles show how good they can be - Daily News
CHIP KELLY delivered a message to his players this week. It came in the form of a video clip from the Eagles' 13-play touchdown drive in the second quarter of their 33-27 win over the Cowboys on Sunday night. Featured on the screen was a shot of Dallas defenders struggling to catch their breath as a ferocious rushing attack backed them toward their goal line. As Lane Johnson talked about that clip, his voice flickered with excitement. "That was the best our tempo has been all season," said Johnson, whose ability to fill the void left by Jason Peters at left tackle was a critical factor in both the drive and the win. "You could see it."

Eagles Wake-Up Call: Good For the Ground Game - Birds 24/7
When the Dolphins faced the Bills in Week 9, Miami’s defense may have taken an unexpected look into its future without defensive end Cameron Wake. Head coach Dan Campbell didn’t like what he saw. Miami's defense allowed Buffalo to pile up an eye-popping 266 yards on the ground, despite LeSean McCoy exiting the game with a shoulder injury in the second half. McCoy and Karlos Williams each picked up over 110 yards and a touchdown apiece, slicing a Dolphins defensive front that was just beginning to deal with the absence of Wake, who will miss the rest of the season with an achilles injury. Wake was the glue holding Miami's expensive, shaky defensive line together, and without its leader against Buffalo, the cracks showed.

Offense In Search Of Full 60 Minutes -

We expected these 32 NFL players to break out in 2015. How have they done? - SB Nation
Brandon Graham, LB, Eagles: He has been very productive against the run, but doesn't have quite as many sacks as I expected. Sacks tend to come in bunches, and he got two against probably the best left tackle in the game last Sunday in a win over Dallas.
