Reviewing BLG’s practice notes

Five big takeaways from Eagles OTAs

1 - Carson Wentz hasn’t looked awesome

2 - Derek Barnett has been really impressive

3 - Rasul Douglas could be a starting cornerback by Week 1

4 - Nelson Agholor has been consistent, which is more impressive than flashes

5 - Shelton Gibson is going to take some time to develop

Talking about the "fight" that went down at practice

James genuinely asks: How much can you really take away from OTAs?

Matt McGloin hasn’t looked so bad … maybe even better than Nick Foles?

Random notes on depth guys

Discussing BLG’s article on Jordan Matthews — What’s JMatt’s future in Philadelphia? Should the Eagles re-sign him?

We answer your Eagles questions!

@MattGrumbrecht asks: At what point are we allowed to panic regarding Wentz's OTAs?

@Ezrarip asks: Assume that the D-Line get 40 sacks next year. Spread out those sacks amongst our line. (Ex: Barnett 8, Cox 8, Curry 8, Graham 8, Timmy 8)

@giomor96 asks: Best Saw movie? Best Friday movie?

@Stephen_Lee20 asks: Over/Under: Barnett - 6 sacks Wentz - 4K yards (he'd be the first #Eagle ever) Agholor - 500 yards Smallwood - 600 yards?

@JustinLamphere asks: What level of production do you expect to see from Zach Ertz and do you think he can sustain it throughout the season?

@TheMightyEROCK asks: One thing each one of you do that drives the other nuts?

@mattywils asks: If you had a daughter, would you rather she date Chip Kelly or Doug Pederson?

@Bair12 asks: What's the crowd reaction when the first pass in the game to Alshon Jeffery is dropped?

@Willing2GoHamm asks: Best place to eat a cheese steak? Pats? Or Genos? I'm from KC.

@TriumphMcCloud asks: KillMarryF: Washington, Dallas, New York. Open to interpretation.

@mark_adamiak asks: How much money would it take for you to get tackled without pads by Fletcher Cox?

@freecrack96 asks: Which player is gonna let us down this season? (Not injury related) If he does can the eagles compete for a playoff win?

Final thoughts and more!

Don't Go To The Phones Ep. 7: No one will quarter soldiers in Fletcher Cox’s home

The draft came and went, and it was pretty straightforward, or did the Eagles outsmart themselves? Why were people so concerned that Fletcher Cox didn’t show up to OTAs but not Marcus Smith? Are NFL superstars and backup quarterbacks the next beachhead in the fight for equality? Matt Dering (@OhWowHmm) and Trevor Strunk (@Hegelbon) discuss all that and more! Plus they don’t take your phone calls!

Upon Further Review - Episode 9: J.R. Reed

JR Reed was a special kind of journeyman. Join Vince Quinn as he details the horrific lows and stunning highs of Reed's career. It's an incredible story that every Eagles fan should know!
