  • The latest on the injury news front when it comes to Miles Sanders, Lane Johnson, Javon Hargrave, Jalen Reagor, etc.
  • Jason Peters back to left tackle. What’s going on with the right guard spot since Doug Pederson was weird about not committing to Matt Pryor as the starter there?
  • The most important question: who’s returning kicks and punts for this team?
  • Thoughts on Richard Rodgers being back again, the welcomed Josh McCown return, and other practice squad musings.


  • Doug Pederson is undefeated in season openers while Ron Rivera is ... not.
  • The critical Darius Slay versus Terry McLaurin matchup. If the Eagles can shut him down, who else does Washington really have?
  • Buying or selling Dwayne Haskins as a significantly improved player heading into Year 2?
  • To what extent should we be concerned about the Eagles’ offensive line being able to hold up against this Washington defensive line? Because WFT is looking pretty legit in that regard. Philly especially can’t afford to get behind early.
  • On the flip side, the Eagles need to dominate a very vulnerable left section of Washington’s offensive line.
  • Why DeSean Jackson is going to go off once again and a Washington injury to watch.
