Episode #253 crew: John Barchard, James Seltzer, Matt Dering

Is Donnel Pumphrey fighting for a roster spot? What do you need to see out of him?

James: "I don’t think Pumphrey looks ready for the NFL from a body physique point"

Throwing cold water on the "LeGarrette Blount is going to get cut" rumors

John was a little surprised what Pumphrey had to say in the locker room this week

Corey Clement - The next Henry Josey?

Alex McCalister — can he beat out Steven Means? Means is more productive, but McCalister is younger. Would the Eagles keep both?

Matt and James make a Woodrow’s cheesesteak bet. James wins if the Eagles keep Means, Matt wins if it’s McCalister. John is also betting on Means over McCalister

Which linebackers are the Eagles going to keep after the two obvious starters: Jordan Hicks and Nigel Bradham? Do the Eagles keep Mychal Kendricks?

James thinks the Eagles need to keep Kendricks because Nate Gerry doesn’t look ready.

Who steps up at backup LB? Keeping an eye on Nate Gerry, Don Cherry, Joe Walker, and Kamu Grugier-Hill.

Veterans vs. not-so-veteran battle at cornerback: Patrick Robinson and Ron Brooks vs. C.J. Smith and Aaron Grymes. Is Robinson on the outs? Ron Brooks’ injury history is concerning.

James: "I never want to see Jaylen Watkins play football in an Eagles uniform again"

Eagles secondary played well against the Dolphins in practice

Smoking Jay Cutler

Wendell Smallwood has a chance to step up

John is still focusing on the offensive line because he’s skeptical

Wanting to see more out of Dillon Gordon

Chance Warmack has really struggled

The guys still think a Jason Kelce trade is possible … maybe

John expects the Eagles to make a couple of small moves still

What are you most excited to see in this Eagles-Dolphins game?

Matt is excited to see Carson Wentz’s progress

John is excited to see Carson Wentz’s new safety blanket - Alshon Jeffery

James is excited to see Alshon Jeffery stiff arm the s*** out of Byron Maxwell

John is excited to see Torrey Smith get more involved
