Well, so much for the Philadelphia Eagles having better injury luck this year.
Despite an unusual offseason with no spring practices, the Eagles still managed to suffer a season-ending injury months ahead of Week 1 with Brandon Brook tearing his Achilles.
Just how big of a loss is this? Jimmy Kempski and I debated that and much more in the latest BGN Radio podcast episode. Stream the conversation below or [CLICK HERE TO LISTEN]:
- The on-field impact of losing Brooks:
In Brandon Brooks' four years in Philadelphia, the Eagles are 41-23 when he plays at least 50 percent of the offensive snaps. They're 0-6 when he's out or plays fewer than 50 percent of the offensive snaps.— Zach Berman (@ZBerm) June 16, 2020
- The locker room impact of losing Brooks.
- Running through the internal options for the starting right guard spot. Doug Pederson indicated the Eagles will look in-house first.
- Jason Peters to guard: realistic or nah? (Spoiler: nah.)
- Should the Eagles stick with their young guys or does it make sense to sign a veteran? And who are the best options?
- The long-term impact of losing Brooks. Do the Eagles regret his contract extension? Will he be the same player if/when he returns in 2021?
- Wide receiver takeaways from Doug Pederson: Vote of confidence for Alshon Jeffery? Jalen Reagor expected to have a limited role?
- The feasibility of the 2020 season given the COVID-19 spikes across the country.
- Jimmy’s thoughts on BGN’s head coach/quarterback combo rankings from last week. And specifically where Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz belong.
- Talking about our favorite player on the Eagles’ current roster.
- Some fun stories involving BGN Radio alumnus James Seltzer.
