  • Roster housecleaning: The Eagles placed some placed on injured reserve and added two new defensive backs.
  • Dallas Goedert said he thought he’d have a contract extension by now. What do we make of that? Is it possible the Eagles would re-sign Zach Ertz instead of him?
  • How much 12 personnel do we expect to see this year?
  • The Eagles are relatively healthy! Though Brandon Brooks and Rodney McLeod have been limited in practice. What happens at safety if McLeod can’t play?


  • New this year, we’re doing three reasons for optimism and three reasons for concern.
  • One of the biggest reasons for optimism: the Eagles’ interior defensive line versus the Falcons’ interior offensive line. Looking like a big mismatch inside.
  • One of the biggest reasons for concern: Matt Ryan isn’t terrible and the Falcons do have some legit receiving weapons, including rookie stud Kyle Pitts.


  • Cowboys at Buccaneers (-8.5)
  • Chargers at Football Team (-1)
  • Broncos (-3) at Giants
  • Eagles at Falcons (-3.5)
  • Predicting the Eagles’ 2021 record and where they finish in the NFC East
