  • What’s the level of concern about the Eagles’ offense coming out of the Jets game?
  • Is wide receiver a bigger need than cornerback right now? DeSean Jackson is out, Alshon Jeffery isn’t 100%, and Nelson Agholor is incredibly frustrating. Who could the Eagles trade for to help with the lack of big plays?
  • Doug Pederson said Jordan Howard is the Eagles’ lead back moving forward. But is there really going to be a big change from the recent setup?
  • What to make of the Eagles’ 10-sack performance against the Jets. Is there hope for the pass rush?
  • One underrated concern about this team right now.
  • Looking at the upcoming road trip and the next three games after that.


  • The Kirk Cousins litmus test game. Cousins is 4-24 all-time against teams that finish the season with a winning record. Ergo, Cousins typically doesn’t beat good teams. So, if you truly believe the Eagles are a good team, they should win. Right?
  • How should the Eagles attack the Vikings’ defense?
