Just over twenty-four hours remain until the spolight shines bright on the Windy City.  Starting this Thursday night, the NFL’s most exciting period will take center stage.  Two-hundred fifty-six youngsters will have their name called over the span of this three-day event. A number of others will find their ways on to NFL rosters as UDFAs (UnDrafted Free Agents). In my previous mock draft, I stated that it would be my final mock.  However, after long consideration and research, I have decided to go against what was said and created a third mock draft.  I can assure everyone that this will be final one. There are some new faces to this mock, as things have significantly changed in this version.

#1- Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jameis Winston (QB/Florida State)

I still believe that Winston is the best option for the Bucs here. His athleticism is extraordinary, and if he can overcome his off-field immaturity, Winston will be a force in the NFL. Although, there is a ton of risk that goes into this pick. When most people look at Jameis, they see Michael Vick.  Unfortunately, when I look at Winston, I see Jamarcus Russell.  

#2- Philadelphia Eagles (via Tennesee Titans)- Marcus Mariota (QB/Oregon)

This is about as obvious, as one pick can get.  However, it’s also the most difficult one to predict.  There are a number of teams that are looking to trade up for Mariota, as many consider him to be a “QB of the future”.  The New York Jets, San Diego Chargers, and Cleveland Browns are all teams that join the Eagles in the Mariota chase.  The lone difference between the Birds and the other three?  Only Chip Kelly will be crazy enough to pay the asking price.  The Titans are able to squeeze the Eagles for Sam Bradford, Mychael Kendricks, #20 Overall, their 2016 1sr round pick, and Fletcher Cox.

Eagles (2-0) vs. Redskins (1-1) Preview and Staff Predictions

September 21st, 2014 by Sam Shipley | Comments Off on Eagles (2-0) vs. Redskins (1-1) Preview and Staff Predictions | Filed in Eagles, General, NFL, TalkSportsPhilly

On Sunday, the Eagles will head into battle with NFC East rivals, the Washington Redskins. This game should be an easier matchup than the 30-27 thriller that took place on Monday Night. But, it should be more of a challenge than the 34-17 drubbing of the Jaguars in Week 1 (Albeit, not in the fashion that we expected..). Both teams will head into this battle with numerous wounded soldiers. Below, is the full injury report for both teams.

Injury Report:

Philadelphia Eagles:

Mychal Kendricks (Calf) – Out
Josh Huff (Shoulder)- Doubtful
Earl Wolff (Knee)- Questionable
Matt Tobin (Knee)- Questionable
Todd Herremans (knee)- Probable
Nolan Carroll II (elbow)- Probable
Zach Ertz (knee)- Probable
Malcolm Jenkins (shoulder)- Probable
Brad Smith (groin)- Probable
Jaylen Watkins (hamstring)- Probable
Cary Williams (hamstring)- Probable
Fletcher Cox (back)- Probable

Philadelphia Eagles- 24- Washington Redskins- 16- Post-Game Thread/Recap

Leave it to Brandon Boykin to make a big play to save the game for Philadelphia, with 32 seconds left in the game at home vs. rival Washington.

The Eagles looked as if they were going to cruise easily to victory this past Sunday vs. the now 3-7 Redskins, but the game drastically changed, in Washington’s favor, when the Eagles decided to slow down the pace of the game with a 24-0 lead after halftime.

That’s when Washington’s defense came up with a few stops in succession, to be able to put their offense, struggling at that point, in a position to score some points and get back in the game. Well, that’s exactly what they did. Washington scored 16 unanswered points in the 4th quarter, and after a 24-point deficit, cut the lead to just a touchdown (plus a two-point conversion). Even more impressively perhaps, on top of the touchdowns to cut the Philly lead, was Washington’s red-zone offense’s effectiveness on the two-point conversion attempts. They were 2-2 in two-point attempts, even though they were poor outside of that in the red-zone.

The first time they made it to the red zone was with little over nine minutes to play in the second quarter, when backup running back Roy Helu Jr. ran for a 24-yard gain to setup 1st and 10 on the Philadelphia 20 yard line. On the very next play, Eagles’ linebacker Connor Barwin sacked Griffin for an eight yard loss, and subsequently stripped the ball from him for a forced fumble, which lead to an Eagles’ recovery by Fletcher Cox.

The Philadelphia Eagles, in less than 12 hours from now, will attempt to gain sole possession of first place within the NFC East division, with a win over rival Washington, who’s coming off of a seven point loss, 34-27, at Minnesota 10 days ago on a Thursday night game. Last season, Washington was in a very similar, almost exact situation as this season. Last year, they were 3-6 as well, and went on to win seven consecutive games to finish at 10-6 — good enough for first place within the NFC East; Washington’s first division title in 13 years, since they went 10-6 in the 1999 season.

Meanwhile, Philadelphia can’t seem to buy a win at home these past couple of seasons, for whatever reason. They’re winless at home this season, at 0-4, while Washington is 1-4 on the road. Currently, Philadelphia has a 10-game losing streak at home, dating back to last year. Their last home victory came over a year ago, vs. the Giants, on September 30th, when they won 19-17.

The former is tied for dead last, with the New York Giants, within the division, while Philadelphia is tied, with five wins a piece, with Dallas for the lead. Washington has been outscored by 57 points thus far, 287-230, while Philadelphia has outscored their opponents by eight points, 252-244.

Who will win the NFC East?

September 25th, 2013 by Leo | Comments Off on Who will win the NFC East? | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, Polls

Who will win??

It’s certainly been a bad start for the NFC East this year.  What was once one of the toughest and competitive divisions with powerhouse teams is barely on the radar with respects to the other divisions.  It seems that the winner of the division will be the team that is the least worst rather than the best.

The Eagles with a 1-2 record sit in second place so far behind the Cowboys with a 2-1 record.  The Giants and the Redskins are in last with 0-3 records.  With 12 overall games played so far from NFC East teams, there is only 3 wins with 9 losses.  That’s not good!  So, with the season in the early stages and clearly no dominant team, my question to you is Who Will Win the NFC East in 2013?
