Let’s go to Philadelphia Eagles liens …
CHAD JOHNSON: Will the Cowboys make the playoffs? They have all this firepower on offense, why not?
TERRELL OWENS: I’ll say yes.
CHAD JOHNSON: Will they win the NFC East?
TERRELL OWENS: Non.
CHAD JOHNSON: What? They have no competition.
TERRELL OWENS: Eagles. The Eagles, they have Jalen Hurts. He’s always going to put them in the running.
CHAD JOHNSON: Wait a minute. New coach says Jalen Hurts must compete for the starting position. Do they trust him?
TERRELL OWENS: I trust him. It is a competitor. I know what it’s made of.
Eagles rookie profile: 6 things you need to know about DeVonta Smith – BGN
Ruggs always got all the hype for his speed, but Smith stuck with him the entire time. It has excellent high-end stride speed, but even better, it can accelerate to top speed without losing a step (a byproduct of not having to exert any extra force to accelerate a 200-pound frame). He’s a skillful road racer, and that translates into his ability to make guys miss out on the court. He’s light but never hesitated to throw the shoulder first into defenders to get an extra yard or two with each catch. Combine that speed, road racing, and YAC ability, and you can see how he made a career of turning routine inclines into huge games. On top of that, he’s always had phenomenal hands, whether it’s making tough and contested holds or just doing routine holds, and he has that natural feeling of jumping over and around defenders. to catch catches without ever getting screwed. When he came to Alabama with Ruggs and Jeudy, the general consensus on all of them was that Ruggs was the speed guy, Jeudy was the road racer, and Smith had the best hands.
NFC East Mixtape Vol. 4: 2021 schedule released + record forecast – BGN Radio
Let the countdown begin! Brandon Lee Gowton and RJ Ochoa analyze the 2021 NFL schedule for each team in the division, debate who has the toughest schedule, and make record predictions.
NFL has blocked two-thirds of NFC East joint games in the last five weeks of the season – Blogging The Boys
There are 12 composite games played in the NFC East each year and 8 of them take place in the last five weeks of the season. This means that only 4 NFC East contests take place between weeks 1 through 12, which end in early December. This is madness. Trying to think of why the league would organize things this way, BLG and I were both stumped. Obviously the NFC East brings good marks for the league, but why risk all those games at the end like that? It’s possible, in the sense that anything is possible here, that a team could run away with the division until Thanksgiving, and then the majority of games that take place between teams outside of major markets are significantly less relevant.
State of mind – Iggles Blitz
Coaching was a major issue. The coaches were forced on the offensive side of the ball and there were too many cooks in the kitchen, so to speak. The coaches already on staff weren’t thrilled about strangers joining them and this led to problems. The squad didn’t function well together and they didn’t do a good job of getting the most out of the players. There were just a few weird issues last year. Nate Herbig played well, but was benched for a few games. We were told it was performance based, but it certainly didn’t look like us on the outside. I felt like I was being punished for something. Will Parks was unable to make it to the field and was subsequently cut off. Travis Fulgham was the league’s most productive receiver for a month and then passed away. I would love to know the whole story behind this.
Smith better than advertised in Roob’s 10 sightings of rookie camp – NBCSP
9. One of those interesting young receivers is undrafted Florida rookie Trevon Grimes, who is huge. He is 6-4, 225 and with his tall Afro looks around 6-7. Sirianni mentioned how well Grimes seemed to be moving at 6-4, and I wouldn’t be shocked if he turns into a training camp star. He played in the shadow of Terry McLaurin at Ohio State and then Kyle Pitts and Kadarius Toney at Florida, but he still found a way to rack up nearly 1,500 receiving yards as as a college student. I can’t wait to watch it in action.
In his element, Nick Sirianni orchestrates his first practice as Eagles head coach – PE.com
On what Dickerson, coming out of a torn ACL suffered in Alabama last December, can do in this camp on the ground: “For him this weekend, it’s just walkthroughs, to be involved in the walkthroughs, learn the offensive. So a lot of the goals that we just talked about with everyone, obviously he can’t do them at the same speed. I’m not going to set a timeline for Landon and his return, but he’s working hard. We have a great training staff and a great strength staff working hard with him to get him ready to go as soon as he can.
Paris NFL 2021: Stages that will decide the total win bets for each NFL team – PFF
Weeks 4-6: The Eagles are one of only two teams to face the two participants of Super Bowl 55 in three weeks. Fortunately, both clashes are at home, but the Eagles must travel to Carolina before a short week against the Buccaneers on Thursday night. Outside of that small stretch, the Eagles have one of the easiest schedules in the NFL, with the majority of their clashes having a lower league-average ELO ranking.
Giants welcome former Eagles RB Corey Clement for a tryout this weekend – Big Blue View
Clement has struggled to stay healthy and become a full participant in the Eagles’ offense since signing with Philadelphia as an undrafted free agent in 2017. Clement has played in all 16 games as a rookie, carrying the ball 74 times for 321 yards and 4 touchdowns. year, including a rushed Super Bowl touchdown. So far, all of those numbers have proven to be career highlights as he hasn’t played a full season and has only scored three touchdowns since that rookie campaign. Clement only ran the ball three times in two games against the Giants in 2020, but one of those runs – his only attempt to rush in the Eagles’ 27-17 loss in Week 10 – was also the Clement’s only touchdown of the season. As Raanan writes, the Giants could still use some depth in their backfield, with sixth-round rookie Gary Brightwell, Sandro Platzgummer, Jordan Chunn and Taquan Mizzell battling for a spot on the roster. The giants might well be interested i
Washington Roster moves: FS Bobby McCain signs one-year contract – Hogs Haven
Washington added another veteran cap victim in May who could end up starting Week 1. Charles Leno and Bobby McCain both had visits with the team on Monday, and now the two have signed one-year deals with the team. Leno’s deal is worth $ 5 million. We haven’t seen any details of the McCain contract, but he would have liked more than what was initially offered to him. Playing in that defense is probably a ticket to a bigger salary next season, which was probably how he was sold coming here. McCain comes into a good situation here, but the team still have a lot of moving parts safe. SS Landon Collins’ departure tore his Achilles apart in October and is recovering, but how much will he play to start the season? Kamren Curl was a revelation when he started after Collins fell, and Jack Del Rio has said there is a place for him in that defense. Troy Apke started at FS last season, but will fight for a spot in the roster this year after being substituted for the performance. Deshazor Everrett played well until his season ended with a shoulder injury. Jeremy Reaves was next and the two will return to fight for a spot.
2021 NFC Wins Total Screenings: Can Washington Repeat in NFC East? – NFL.com
Weeks 6 (against Chiefs) and 7 (at Packers) don’t seem like a fun part of Washington’s schedule, as long as Rodgers stays on the Packers. Yet, while some project the Cowboys to win the NFC East with Dak Prescott’s return to health, my models like Washington. The strength of the football team in defense, especially up front, can compensate for the average offensive projection, while the Cowboys’ offense will have a greater challenge in carrying the defense.

Fully vaccinated NFL players, staff can throw away masks at team facilities – ESPN
Fully vaccinated NFL players and staff will no longer be required to wear masks at team facilities, the club league informed in a memo on Friday. The policy change is effective immediately. The NFL Health and Safety Department made the decision after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its COVID-19 mask guidelines for the United States on Thursday. People are considered fully vaccinated if 14 days have passed since their second injection of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines or their single injection of Johnson & Johnson.
CDC embraces the power of vaccines – Vox
But on Thursday, the CDC exceeded criticism – announcing it no longer recommended the vaccinated mask, even in most indoor environments. The agency cited a few specific exceptions for health care facilities, public transport, prisons, prisons and homeless shelters. And people should continue to follow local and national laws. But the general message was unambiguous: Americans who have been vaccinated can start to return to normal. “The science is clear: if you are fully immunized, you are protected and you can start doing the things you stopped because of the pandemic,” the CDC said in a statement.
