Eagles CB Bradley Fletcher talks about his season and the upcoming game against the Cardinals.
The Philadelphia Eagles have every reason to be feeling good entering the off week, but this can also be a good a time as any to start evaluating who has been performing well and who has some room for improvement when the team gets back on the field. Here are some of the players who have come up big for the Eagles so far, and a couple who have had to be carried.
The Eagles have a chance to enter the bye week reversing the vibes going on around the city. Winning against the Giants should be enough, but doing so while addressing a few areas of concern would be the best way to head into the bye week next week.
If Sunday’s game exposed any one weakness on the Eagles defense, it is the play of the outside cornerbacks. St. Louis quarterback Austin Davis picked apart the Eagles defensive backs on the outside of the field time and time again as the Rams started to chip away.
There is one preseason game remaining, but there is still much to be settled when it comes to the Eagles roster.
Cary Williams and the Eagles are set to start joint practices with the Patriots.
The play of the Eagles defense will determine whether or not the team contends.
The Eagles are back on the field at the Linc for the first time since their playoff exit.
Eagles Jeremy Maclin and Bradley Fletcher got into a fight during practice on Monday.
Injuries have been a far smaller concern this season for the Eagles compared to last season. Perhaps that is a significant factor in the turnaround on the field in addition to a new coach breathing new life in to the franchise.
he Eagles will be missing a couple of defensive players this weekend as they look to snap their home losing streak in Lincoln Financial Field. Safety Earl Wolff and back-up linebacker Jake Knott have been ruled out by the Eagles for this weekend’s home game against the Washington Redskins.
Mike Vick is still bothered by a hamstring injury that has been nagging him for the last month. The veteran quarterback was limited in practices early in the week but did get in a full practice on Friday. Even if his hamstring stops bothering by Sunday, it should be expected he will serve as nothing more than a back-up quarterback option to Nick Foles.
Everything is on track for Michael Vick to return to the starting lineup for the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend as the New York Giants come to town. Second-year quarterback Nick Foles is out after not practicing all week due to a concussion, so Vick’s return is quite timely for the Eagles.
Things did not start off well but the Eagles put together the so-called full team effort. The offense started slowly but ended up having a really good game. The defense took their lumps but got past them to do their part as well.
The Eagles placed corner back Brandon Hughes on the short-term injured reserve list with a hamstring injury. To fill his vacant roster spot the Eagles added Roc Carmichael. As for the rest of the team, players appear to be ready to go for the third game of the season against former Eagles head coach Andy Reid.
