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
We answer your Eagles questions from Twitter and Facebook
