NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ...

Buying or selling? 3 options for each scenario as Eagles approach trade deadline -
WR DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins. Just like Cooks, Parker would also be a viable option to fill in for Reagor. Parker has 25 catches for 327 yards and a touchdown this season with the Miami Dolphins. The Eagles have had an extensive history making trades, including the pre-2021 draft deal that netted the Eagles the Dolphins’ 2022 first-round pick, which is currently second overall. Will the Dolphins still do another trade with the Eagles? Maybe.

Weapon X Mailbag: Should the Eagles trade Miles Sanders? - BGN
I feel like I write about Sanders and potential trades in every mailbag, but it remains a worthy topic. I’m of the mindset that teams shouldn’t get rid of talented players for non-premium picks just for the sake of it, but if the Eagles truly aren’t going to use Sanders this year and have other backs they feel like are capable of sizable workload, a split needs to happen. I’ve compared a Sanders trade to the deal the Eagles made for Jay Ajayi in 2017 for a fourth-round pick. Ajayi had another year left on his rookie contract at the time of the trade just like Sanders does. Sanders is on IR currently and won’t be eligible to come back until November 21 at the earliest though, which further complicates matters. Is a team going to make a win-now move for a running back when he’s going to miss a couple of games and may be hampered even when he suits up again? Wouldn’t the Titans, for example, want immediate help following Derrick Henry’s injury instead of dealing with another injured back?

3. Philadelphia Eagles (via MIA): CB Derek Stingley Jr., LSU. The cornerback spot across from Darius Slay has been an issue for the Eagles this season. With three first-rounders likely at its disposal, Philadelphia should just attack premium positions at the top. Stingley may have played only 154 snaps this year before suffering a foot injury with an indefinite return timetable, but he was the highest-graded cornerback in the country as a true freshman in 2019.

How did Miles Sanders react to his teammates running 46 times? - NBCSP
But Sanders wasn’t pissed. And he wasn’t frustrated. And he didn’t lash out at Nick Sirianni, even though it would have been understandable if he did. Instead, Sanders was thrilled for his teammates, especially for Jordan Howard and Boston Scott, who came out of mothballs to combine for 24 carries for 117 yards. In all, the Eagles ran 46 times for 236 yards. “Actually, he texted me, ‘Hell yeah, coach,’ with all caps,” Sirianni said. “Miles was obviously super excited for his teammates. “Miles is a great teammate. He’s a great person, great teammate, great player, I’m sure glad we have him on the team. Obviously, we’re missing him right now and look forward to when he gets back. “But that was his (text): ‘Hell, space, yeah — Y-E-A — with an exclamation point.”

Jordan Howard, Boston Scott give Nick Sirianni a new story to share with future players -
“I think that’s going to be a forever story,” Sirianni said on Monday in our weekly one-on-one interview. “Maybe I don’t have a story from my past, but they’re going to be the prime examples of what you need to do, and how you need to be a pro and how you need to come to work every day and be ready when your number is called and when you do, I mean, what a great example for young guys that are backups right now, right? To see Jordan do what he did, or Boston to see what he did when they came in – Jordan hadn’t had any carries – and he comes in and has 12 really good runs, physical runs, and scores two touchdowns. Same with Boston. We’re really excited about that and they’ll be my story moving forward.”

Elo ratings: Dallas Cowboys favored in all remaining games - Blogging The Boys
The Cowboys are favored in all their remaining games, even if the margin for error is slim in some cases. The Chiefs game is the tightest projection right now, and could easily change (in either direction) pending the outcome of tonight’s MNF game. But again, being favored in all remaining games doesn’t mean they are projected to win all remaining games. The 538 algorithm currently has the Cowboys pegged as a 13-4 team. They also have the Cowboys with a 98% chance of making the playoffs, the second-best chance (23%) at the NFC East top seed behind only the Packers (25%), and are tied for the third-best Super Bowl odds.

‘Things I think’ after the Giants lose another game they could have won - Big Blue View
It would be easy to feel good about the Giants’ performance Monday. They nearly defeated a team that was in the Super Bowl the past two seasons, winning it two years ago. They denied Kansas City the dominant sort of “reset” victory many Chiefs fans might have hoped for. I’m certain that Judge’s post-game press conference was filled with comments about week-to-week improvement and how the game provided a lot to build on. I don’t have the transcripts yet, but I don’t really need them to know what he’ll say. Reality is, though, the Giants are 2-6. Monday night was yet another Giants’ loss that should have been a Giants’ victory. There really isn’t anything to feel good about.

Jameis Winston Out for Rest of Season - Canal Street Chronicles
New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton stated in a press conference that he is “comfortable” and “satisfied” with his current quarterback room which consists of long-term backup Trevor Siemian, gadget player Taysom Hill, and rookie Ian Book. If this is just lip service or if the Saints actually roll with the three quarterbacks left on the roster is yet to be determined. [BLG Note: The Eagles play the Saints in Week 11.]

Report: Texans increased trade demands for Deshaun Watson - The Phinsider
The Miami Dolphins’ pursuit of quarterback Deshaun Watson hit a snag last week, according to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio. The Dolphins are believed to be the only team in the bidding for Watson, who has demanded a trade from the Houston Texans but also is facing 22 civil lawsuits alleging sexual assault and misconduct, along with criminal investigations into some of those allegations. However, the Texans saw an opportunity this past week to increase their demands for the draft-pick compensation to be returned to them should a trade happen. If the Dolphins are to make a trade, they are believed to want Watson to settle the civil lawsuits first. The Texans “caught wind of the growing possibility that the 22 civil lawsuits would be settled,” Florio wrote on Sunday. He added that, with that possibility, Houston’s “prove for Watson went up.” Florio continued, “The increased demands caused the talks to crater.”

Colin Cowherd Claims the Colts are ‘Split in the Building’ on Starting QB Carson Wentz - Stampede Blue
“I think they’re split in the building on what to do with Carson Wentz,” Cowherd said. “I think Frank Reich wants him. He’s one of those quarterbacks. He divides a building. And even when he was vying for MVP years ago, I don’t remember him being this reckless with the football. But, it appears to be worse.” Now, Colts general manager Chris Ballard is close with Cowherd as a media connection, as he’s appeared several times in the past on ‘The Herd’. Whether this is learned information or the longtime Fox Sports radio host is just speculating is a bit unclear (for what it’s worth, I lean towards the latter given Cowherd’s comments on the Colts collectively on Monday).

NFL winners and losers: Chiefs look small in narrow win over Giants - SB Nation
Loser: Whatever the hell Carson Wentz was trying to do here. We all have the odd brain fart from time to time, but this was incredible. Wentz wasn’t awful on Sunday, but goodness was he terrible when it mattered the most. This interception unquestionably cost Indianapolis the game.

Monday Football Monday #60: Give Mike Tomlin his flowers, Mike White goes off, Cowboys best team in league? - The SB Nation NFL Show
RJ Ochoa and Pete Sweeney unload the NFL Week 8 Sunday action including Jets’ QB Mike White who had a very impressive performance, the Steelers who pulled through with a victory over the Browns and discuss if the Cowboys are the best team in the league.
