Philadelphia Eagles’ goal against the Rams: Get LeSean McCoy going

Share

Time for Shady to get things started.

As the 3-1 Philadelphia Eagles prepare to face-off against the 1 -2 St. Louis Rams this afternoon at the Linc, questions abound. Will the offensive line return to some of its former glory with the return of Lane Johnson from his suspension? And please, oh please: Is this the game when LeSean McCoy will FINALLY turn up and get something going?

Rams quarterback Austin Davis, though inexperienced in the NFL, has completed 72% of his passes in three starts. The Birds defense is ranked just 23rd against the pass in the league, and according to ProFootballFocus, Cary Williams is the most targeted corner in the league since 2011. That said, the Rams are not a team filled with offensive weapons, so if Philadelphia can stand firm and not give up big plays, they should be able to contain whatever the Rams try to get going.

Philadelphia Eagles, Jason Peters agree to 5-year deal

A priority for any football team during the offseason is to take care of those who have taken care of them. The Philadelphia Eagles did just that on Wednesday when they signed All-Pro LT Jason Peters to a 5-year contract extension.

The veteran offensive lineman rebounded from injuring his Achilles twice during the 2012 offseason, leading him to miss all of the 2012 season. Peters returned to the Eagles in 2013 and produced yet another successful season with the Birds that got him his sixth Pro Bowl nod. The strength and stability of the o-line, with Peters’ assistance, led RB LeSean McCoy to a record setting season as the NFL’s leading rusher and helped QB Nick Foles have a breakout season.

Philadelphia Eagles OT Jason Peters arrested for drag racing in Louisiana

Philadelphia Eagles OT Jason Peters was arrested  Wednesday morning for drag racing, then fleeing  police in Monroe, LA. The story was first reported by USA Today.

Ah. I see we are in the not terribly long but too long for some athletes stretch of free time from the end of spring workouts until training camp.

Peters drove a white Camaro that an officer saw speed against a blue sedan once the light turned green at a traffic light.

You thinking what I’m thinking? Pretty sure Peters’ car had the upper hand in that race…which, unfortunately, was part of the problem. The sedan pulled over when authorities attempted to pull over both cars but Peters continued to speed away, exceeding 100 mph.

The Philadelphia Eagles are in the midst of their mandatory minicamp and, as was the case with OTAs the past few weeks, fans are looking for clues of what it may all mean.

Guess what? You’re going to have to keep on guessing. Chip Kelly won’t  speak in definitive terms at this stage, but notes that the team is improving each and every day. The pace of practice no longer seems as feverish because they have grown used to the speed. Continue reading ‘Checking in on Philadelphia Eagles minicamp’
