Eagles fan saves children from burning building, shades Nelson Agholor afterward [UPDATE]by Alexis Chassen on September 24, 2019 at 12:35 am
Only in Philly! UPDATE: Nelson Agholor has responded to this clip by offering the interviewee tickets to the Eagles’ next home game at Lincoln Financial Field. Nice move by the wide receiver. Thank you for being a hero in the community, would like to invite you and your family to the next home gameTwitter help me out and get me in touch with him https://t.co/uqML3eJ0QT— Nelson Agholor (@nelsonagholor) September 24, 2019 ORIGINAL STORY BELOW. There are heroes everywhere. Including this gentleman, who bravely rescued children from a building that was one fire — and then threw shade at Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor during a news interview. Via CBS Philly: The most Philly soundbite goes to this guy who helped catch children thrown from a window during a fire. pic.twitter.com/3rH69gU2fL— Steve Lindsay CBS (@SteveLindsayCBS) September 23, 2019 “My man just started throwing babies down, but we was catching them — unlike Agholor, and his mishaps.” Here’s the extended cut: His stare into the camera at the end. God I love this city. pic.twitter.com/TBTeqshrFs— Natalie Egenolf (@NatalieEgenolf) September 23, 2019 I mean, this man deserves a slow clap for that. Agholor may have made some redemption catches following some big drops and mistakes the past two weeks, but it seems safe to say that Eagles fans aren’t going to be very quick to forget the struggles. Which should come as exactly no surprise to anyone who has ever talked to an Eagles fan.
Monday Night Football: Bears vs. Washingtonby Alexis Chassen on September 23, 2019 at 11:42 pm
Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/Getty Images Can Washington get their first win of 2019? (I’m guessing no, but maybe!?) The final game of Week 3 will see the Chicago Bears looking for their second win of the season, and the Washington Redskins still looking for their first. Washington has already suffered two NFC East losses, first to the Eagles — after starting off hot — and then to the Cowboys in Week 2. The team has been able to put up points with Case Keenum as the starting quarterback, but the defense hasn’t been able to stop the opposition, overall being outscored 63-48 through the first two games of the season. Former Eagles player Treyvon Hester was inactive in Week 1 and didn’t see playing time last week for Washington, and running back Wendell Smallwood had one carry for 4 yards and 2 receptions for 9 yards for Washington in Week 2. Chicago, on the other hand, is coming off a big win over Denver despite a Week 1 loss to the Packers. Former Eagles — and Philly Special legend — Trey Burton was out during the first game of the season with a mild groin sprain, but was back in (limited) action last week. He was a big factor in the Bear’s offense last season, and they’ll likely need to get him involved more often and quickly. The Eagles will face Chicago on November 11 at home, and Washington for the second time this season on December 15 on the road. Here’s everything you need to know about tonight’s game.

Eagles’ defense has tough task ahead against Aaron Rodgersby Michael Kist on September 23, 2019 at 10:53 pm
Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images The QB Scho Show #34! The Philadelphia Eagles are 1-2 with Aaron Rodgers and the 3-0 Green Bay Packers coming to town. That’s... not great. It hasn’t been all roses for the transition to Matt LaFleur’s offense in Green Bay, but we’re all smart enough to know that Rodgers can still take over games. That’s bad news for an Eagles defense that’s allowing 26 points a game. On The QB Scho Show #34, we dive into the Eagles’ upcoming enemy quarterback as always, which means this week it’s Rodger that gets the Scho Show treatment. Below are some quotes from Mark Schofield as we broke down Rodgers and the Packers offense... On Green Bay’s recent schematic struggles… “Mike McCarthy was an offensive innovator when he came to the league. He was using shotgun more than anybody. He was using motion more than anybody. He stayed the same, the rest of the league sort of passed him by. He was using motion I think on 30% of snaps when he came into the league, which was unheard of when he was doing it… He was rigid in what he wanted to do, that played into a lot of Aaron Rodgers’ decline over the past couple of years.” On Matt LaFleur’s early scripting vs. in-game play-calling… “The past two weeks they’ve started extremely well. Their first drive against Minnesota in Week 2 was an absolute thing of schematic beauty… And you saw it again early in this game in Week 3… But it seems like they sort of get off script, and this was a knock on [Matt Nagy] last year was once he got off the scripted fifteen, then it’s hard to be that play-caller that like sets plays up and strings plays together… When you have to start doing it on the fly that’s when it gets tough and that’s an adjustment LaFleur needs to make and I think that’s where part of that frustration with Rodgers is coming in during Week 3.” If that trend holds, the Packers could jump on the Eagles early and then taper off, which sounds familiar considering the situations the Eagles have found themselves in over the past couple years. Overall, we might not view Rodgers as the best quarterback in the league like some executives and coaches, but he’s still capable of an incredibly level of play. As he gets more familiar and more in tune with LaFleur (and vice versa), he should start to flash what made many consider him to be a top two quarterback in the league.

Eagles put out “estimated” injury report with 12 players on it ahead of Packers gameby Brandon Lee Gowton on September 23, 2019 at 8:56 pm
Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Some good news? The Philadelphia Eagles issued their first official injury report on Monday in advance of their Week 4 Thursday Night Football game against the Green Bay Packers. Note that this report is merely an estimation because the Eagles held a walk-through instead of a real practice. Let’s start with the six players who are listed under DID NOT PARTICIPATE: DeSean Jackson, Ronald Darby, JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Timmy Jernigan, and Andre Dillard. It was previously reported that Jackson is supposed to miss this week’s game. The hope is he can return in Week 5. The Eagles will be missing his deep threat element once again. Darby is reportedly expected to miss a few games due to his hamstring issue. His injury leaves Rasul Douglas, Sidney Jones, and Avonte Maddox as the only three healthy corners on the Eagles’ 53-man roster. It’s unclear when Arcega-Whiteside got injured because he didn’t leave the game on Sunday. JJAW’s really struggled over the past two weeks but the Eagles can’t be affording more receiver injuries when their top two guys are already banged up. Jernigan is reportedly expected to miss three-to-week fives. The fact the Eagles haven’t put him on injured reserve shows you the team has some level of optimism that he can return soonish. Dillard suffered a knee injury in Sunday’s loss but Doug Pederson said the rookie left tackle is “okay.” Hard to always take those comments at face value so we’ll have to see how Dillard progresses this week. Four Eagles players were listed under LIMITED PARTICIPATION: Alshon Jeffery, Dallas Goedert, Derek Barnett, and Nathan Gerry. Jeffery didn’t play in Week 3 due to a calf issue. Pederson said he’s “opportunistic” (sic) that Jeffery will play against the Packers. Jeffery didn’t do any kind of pregame workout prior to the Lions game so it’s hard to believe he’ll be close to 100% even if he does play. Jeffery might only play in a limited capacity on Thursday. Goedert only logged nine offensive snaps against the Lions. Maybe the Eagles will be able to increase his workload in Green Bay but — as with Jeffery — it’s hard to imagine he’ll be 100%. Barnett was listed on the injury report with a shoulder in Week 1 and Week 2. Now he’s dealing with an ankle injury he suffered in Week 3. Barnett came back into the game so one would expect he should be able to play on Thursday night. Not great to have a starting defensive end hampered when the pass rush hasn’t been good enough to begin with. Gerry, who isn’t very good, should be able to play this week. Two players were listed under FULL PARTICIPATION: Kamu Grugier-Hill and Nate Sudfeld. Grugier-Hill told reporters last week that he expected to play aganist the Packers. It’s good to see he’s on track to return. Grugier-Hill was having a great training camp before getting hurt in early August. Perhaps he can help provide the defense with a spark? His presence should also help out on special teams. Sudfeld was active for Sunday’s game so he’s clearly ready to play if needed. It’s still not perfectly clear if it’ll be Sudfeld or Josh McCown who comes in at quarterback if Carson Wentz gets hurt. The Eagles had all three passers active against Detroit. Fletcher Cox isn’t listed on the Eagles’ injury report after previously being listed last week. Cox failed to record a single stat in the team’s Week 3 loss but Pederson said he’s not concerned about Cox’s health. “I think you have to look back too at [Brandon Graham] a year ago. BG missed a few games and it took him a couple weeks to kind of get his legs. I think Fletcher, he’s coming [along] and I’m not concerned with him at all. I’m excited actually of where he’s at health-wise and how he’s practicing and things like that. He’s obviously a top defender, top player for us, and I think his best ball’s ahead of him.” The Eagles will issue a second injury report on Tuesday before the third and final injury report is published on Wednesday.

However, his play raised questions of whether he should have done so, as his only play of consequence was receiving a penalty for holding. The limited participants are a long and notable list. Among those players are critical defensive starters — Kenny Clark and Blake Martinez — as well as the Packers’ two veteran running backs in Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. An absence for any of those players on Thursday would be a bad sign against an Eagles team that has a strong offensive line and run game as well as a stout defensive front.

Report: Ronald Darby expected to miss “a few games” with a hamstring injuryby Brandon Lee Gowton on September 23, 2019 at 8:30 pm
Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Another starter is injured. Eagles starting cornerback Ronald Darby will “likely [miss] a few games” after suffering a hamstring injury in Philadelphia’s Week 3 loss to the Lions, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport. Darby, who’s allowed a 110.2 passer rating when targeted, was struggling prior to getting hurt so fans won’t exactly be upset to see him out of the lineup. With that said, the Eagles are now down to just three healthy cornerbacks on their 53-man roster: Rasul Douglas, Sidney Jones, and Avonte Maddox. That’s very thin. Of course, the Eagles could always add another corner to their roster by trading for Jalen Ramsey! The more realistic route involves the team promoting Craig James from the practice squad back to the main roster. With Darby out, Jones and Douglas figure to start on the outside with Maddox manning the slot. The Eagles had previously been rotating Jones and Douglas on the outside so this is their chance to take advantage of playing time as full-time starters. Here’s how the Eagles’ corners have graded out by Pro Football Focus so far this season: Jones — 38th out of 110Douglas — 40th out of 110Maddox — 82nd out of 110Darby — 101st out of 110 It’s worth noting that Jalen Mills is still on the reserve/Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and can’t be activated until Week 7 at the earliest. ... UPDATE: NFL insider Mike Garafolo provides a time-frame on Darby’s injury. Wouldn't be surprised if he was out a month or so. Sounds like he has a pretty significant hamstring injury. https://t.co/7XYzfXFlQW— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) September 23, 2019
