NFL: International Series-Philadelphia Eagles at Jacksonville Jaguars Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It’s a lazy dog danglin’ bye week but there’s still plenty to talk about concerning the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles.

Howie Roseman made sure of that when he made an aggressive move to acquire wide receiver Golden Tate. The Kist & Solak Show breaks down Tate’s role here and hypothesize about how his use will impact fellow slot-heavy receiver Nelson Agholor.

We also argued about Agholor’s worth in 2019 with his $9,387,000 cap hit ranking tied for 21st highest among wide receivers. This puts him in the same ballpark as the Miami Dolphins’ trio of DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills, and Albert Wilson along with other receivers like Michael Crabtree and Marqise Lee. Is he worth it? (spoiler: I think so)

After that we have an extended breakdown of the Eagles’ coaches film against the Jacksonville Jaguars. There were more than a few plays detailed and debated about, including this one that Sheil Kapadia of the The Athletic posted on Twitter.

The discussion revolves around Rasul Douglas’ day at the office and the inconsistent nature of his game. Is an up-and-down player with a history of making plays an upgrade over a struggling Jalen Mills? We aren’t quite sure yet, but Mills’ injury may provide Douglas an opportunity to prep like a starter and his performance after that will be very telling.

We also go in-depth regarding Jim Schwartz and the creative blitz and pass rush packages he put together that harassed Blake Bortles on over 40% of his dropbacks. Among others, two of the plays broken down are clipped below:

There’s also the question of Carson Wentz’s red zone interception and the thought process behind it. Do not expect the Eagles to shy away from the concept used in this play (double post wheel) because they got what they wanted, but pressure and decision-making derailed the play and caused a poor outcome. Solak detailed this play on Twitter recently and we go into even further analysis on the show.

It’s a jam-packed hour long show that we had a lot of fun making and you can stream it on the media player below or click here if the player doesn’t load. FLY EAGLES FLY!
