  1. The Eagles say he had a "routine cleanout" procedure this morning and are hoping he'll return quickly, almost certainly before the opener in a month. https://www.bleedinggreennation.com/2022/8/9/23298358/jason-kelce-injury-eagles-news-philadelphia-center-cam-jurgens-offensive-line Cam Jurgens has had a very impressive camp so far and will run with the 1s until Kelce gets back, but Jason is the heart and soul of this team.
  2. This is quietly a big year for Gannon. He was reportedly on the short list for HC gigs this offseason but decided to stay. Agreed on safety but the whole defense needs to improve. With that said, I think the improvement at LB and CB (on paper anyway) should help but we’ll see.
  3. Hammies can linger for months - ask James Harden. Hopefully you’re right and this one will resolve before the regular season, at least.
  4. Yeah but for $5 a month you really can't go wrong. I'm not always home when the local game is on so the ability to stream it in, say my car or at my kid's soccer game has value. This is meant to supplement, not replace, Sunday Ticket.
  5. One of my points somewhere in here is he needs more targets, particularly in the red zone. It's a volume issue.
  6. No, we're well aware of that. And the Eagles ran a number of 2 TE sets. But he's the man now and needs to be much more involved in red zone play calls.
  7. Exactly. I've said this many times before but the Eagles didn't have much of a choice. They were in QB cap hell last year because of Wentz so they couldn't do anything. He fell off the books this year, but with no realistic free agent or trade scenarios and a terrible QB draft class, sticking with Hurts on his rookie contract was the only reasonable option. If he succeeds, great. Problem solved. If not, the Eagles have enough draft capital to do whatever they want in next year's draft, which should be loaded with quarterback talent.
  8. Carson Wentz started 39 of the games since Goedert was drafted. Hurts started 19. Nick Foles and Minshew were the other starters during that time frame. In fact, Goedert had his best season as a receiver in 2021 by far. He just doesn't score enough touchdowns regardless of who the QB is.
  9. There are 350 pages of TATER heaven on the other thread if you want to discuss Hurts. 1. Tight End. Goedert is considered an elite TE - top 10 at worst, but I don't always see it. His statistics are impressive, but he doesn't score enough TDs. In fact, he was 17th in TDs last year. After Goedert, there's absolutely no depth. How thin is the position? They're trying to salvage JJAW's career by having him learn the part. All 6'2 and 220lbs of him. 2. Running back. Miles Sanders regressed last year despite the focus on the running game in the second half of the season. He didn't score a single touchdown. Not one. You could argue that he didn't get enough touches last year, considering his high average per attempt, but there's a reason the coaching staff fed the ball to everyone else: he runs side to side instead of hitting the hole hard. Sanders isn't even a top 25 back. After him, they seem to like Gainwell and Scott. 3. Punter. Siposs is the only punter on the roster, but surely they'll bring in some competition at some point. He's statistically one of the 4 or 5 worst punters in the league, and it shows.
  10. Yeah but you get them on your phone. That's where all this is going. And it sounds like there might be select out-of-market games available but this is designed to compliment Sunday Ticket, not compete with it. I'm a big proponent of OTA content but I can't get a signal from any market where my house is. I have to watch local TV on cable or satellite but when this launches and Sunday Ticket moves to Apple, I can drop those and watch everything via broadband.
  11. I thought the same thing. My guess is it will offer a game or two a week but nothing that will compete with Sunday Ticket (by design). They say the "audio" of all games, which implies the video feeds will be limited.
  12. And don't forget about the salary cap piece. Last season, the Eagles allocated almost $40 million in cap space to the QB position and $34 million of it went to a guy who played for the Colts. The Eagles QB room was $5 million combined out of necessity.
  13. Here's another one (h/t Front Office Sports): NFL+ anyone? The NFL is evolving its media strategy to meet the modern fan. The league’s chief media and business officer Brian Rolapp confirmed on Monday in a column for Sports Illustrated that the NFL is launching its own streaming service, NFL+. "NFL+ will provide fans access to live local and national NFL games on mobile devices, live out-of-market preseason games across all devices, live local and national audio for every game, NFL Network shows on demand, NFL Films archives and more — providing football flexibility so fans never have to miss football again,” Rolapp wrote. The streaming service will live within the NFL app. Previous reports stated that the service could cost $5 per month. After its latest round of media deals, NFL games will also appear on streaming services Paramount+, Peacock, ESPN+, and Amazon Prime Video, which holds exclusive rights to "Thursday Night Football.”
  14. So they have you right where they want you...the vortex.
