Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …

Captain Checkdown: The quarterbacks who rely most and least on passing checks – PFF
Two years ago, Josh Allen was off the charts in terms of how often he threw control passes, while Allen attempted control on just 2.3% of his drops – a percentage point lower to any other passer. Fast forward through his best two years in the league, and we find a player who consistently ranks in the top 10 check rates; however, he is throwing a checkdown at double the rate of two years ago. Allen is still a very aggressive passer, but he understands better when to take a positive play rather than always waiting for the hero result. Allen’s position in that table is now occupied by Jalen Hurts, who has attempted a check on just 3.3% of his pass attempts over the past two seasons. Hurts has the lowest vetting rate of any quarterback by far. Therefore, like Allen, this could be another area where he can improve.

Predicting Every Philadelphia Eagles Game In 2022 – DraftKings Nation
The Eagles have a VERY favorable game slate heading into their Week 7 break. Three of their five opponents to start the season (Detroit Lionsthe commanders of Washington and Jacksonville Jaguars) had lost records last year. The primetime Monday night football game with the Minnesota Vikings will be interesting, but right now this one favors Philadelphia on paper. And they will have a great opportunity to steal a game from Arizona Cardinals without DeAndre Hopkins in the roster.. Five or six wins isn’t that much of a stretch before as early as week 7!! These matches will be vital. The Pittsburgh Steelers back on the schedule, and at Lincoln Financial Field for the first time since losing 34-3 in 2016. The interstate battle is still a classic, and history favors the Eagles after losing 38-29 at Heinz Field in 2020. Week 11 to the finish line will definitely be the toughest stretch. The Eagles have three divisional games – One on the road against the Dallas Cowboys and their two encounters with the New York Giants. They have five non-divisional games that also have the ingredients to stir up trouble. Two games on the road against the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bearsand three at home against the Green Bay Packers, Tennessee Titans and New Orleans Saints. Even so, the current Eagles roster is quite a 10+ win team.

Here are 3 Eagles that could be used as commercial bait this summer – NJ.com
WR Jalen Reagor. According to some rumors, Reagor was almost traded to the Baltimore Ravens for the safety of the Ravens Chuck Clark. However, the deal never happened and Reagor is still on the roster. A 2020 first-round pick NFL Draft, Reagor failed to live up to his potential. Reagor showed flashes that he can make difficult catches, but then showed lapses in focus during catches and running details. Reagor is vying to be the fourth receiver to try and fight free agent signee Zach Pascal for the role. Reagor caught the eye of several teams when he was coming out of TOS and could probably benefit from a fresh start. As a fifth wide receiver, Reagor may well play a limited role if he shows he can occasionally make a catch and be a factor in the rematch. Otherwise, the Eagles could be trying to get pennies on the dollar for a pick that was once so promising.

2023 Compensating Choices Update (05/24/2022) – Over The Cap
[BLG Note: No comp picks for the Eagles in the 2023 NFL Draft.]

Tyron Smith’s health is a ticking time bomb for the Cowboys – Blogging The Boys
Many of his issues have involved back and neck issues. Things have already gotten tough for him as he missed the open OTA earlier this week with what was reported to be a tightness in his back. Some have downplayed it because it’s so early. As the longest serving player on the team (only LS Jake McQuaide has that many years in the league, but most were outside of Dallas), he’s logically going to get some extra time off to allow him to rest and recover. But back problems are not like many injuries. Players are recovering from a torn ACL and have little to no knee issues with the advanced care available. Backs are not like that. As anyone who has had a back problem can attest, they keep coming back. While most of Smith’s recent missed games have been due to other more manageable injuries, the early problem with his back is a concerning sign. If it’s strictly a muscle problem, it might not be a big deal. If it involves vertebrae, however, rest and therapy may not be enough. He had a disc bulge in his back and injuries to the cervical vertebrae. These are things that persist and reoccur too often.

Big Blue View mailbag: Turnaround time, salary cap…and even a punter question – Big Blue View
Miosoti, you are absolutely right that not all problems can be solved in one offseason. You save as best you can with the resources you have and hope that over time you’ll make enough good choices and do enough good work to build something special. Now, a timeline. You talk about four years. Seriously? If it takes that long to show real progress, Brian Daboll will be out the door and Joe Schoen could be gone with him. I don’t think I can actually say “this should happen in year 1, this should happen in year 2, etc. One thing I will say is that I did some research a while ago and , although there are exceptions, you usually see progress on the field in terms of wins and losses by year 2 if a new trainer or regimen is going to be successful If you look at this and think, well , maybe they can post a winning record by 2025 that won’t fly. I can guarantee you that John Mara doesn’t think that way.
