Wow!!! What a game huh? So here is how I graded the Eagles performance this week Vs the New York Football Giants. It may not of been pretty, but Ya take them anyway you can get them. I changed the format just a little bit tell me what you think.
OVERALL & COACHING - D plus:
Eagles scoring on a sustained drive early in the game. In my opinion sustained drives mean a good offensive game plan, the offensive line is executing, and that the QB is reading the game well. A coach once told me "if my offense is executing at a high level, I can tell the defense what I'm going to run and we will still get positive yards". I don't know if you can do that in the NFL but I understand and respect the sentiment.
Questionable play calling and decisions galore throughout the game!
An attempted fade route to your newly signed tight end that doesn't even know where he should line up.
Doug only ran the ball 13 times (between the running backs & D-Jack) for approximately 58 yards.
The last minute challenge attempt. As a coaching staff they absolutely failed! Those reviews and recommendations MUST happen faster the future.
Playing Lane Johnson wasn't smart. Let him heal properly so we have him late in the season.
OFFENSE C minus:
Carson Wentz's performance down the stretch of the 4th quarter and the fact that he threw for 359 yards.
Noticed some leadership from Carson.
Boston Scott made the most out of his touches rushing for 46 yards and of course that fantastic game winning catch on the wheel route.
In my opinion 43 pass attempts is to many! I know Doug likes to pass in order to set up the run but we gotta find a way to run the ball more consistently.
Carson Wentz must STOP HOLDING THE BALL. THROW THE BALL AWAY DUDE!! You're killing me!
Pederson's in-game adjustments. He seems to be a day late and a dollar short every week!
Our offensive line still STINKS! Yeah, yeah, I know, I know! But regardless of why, they really stink!!!
I truly believe the O-line's subpar performance has significantly changed the play book and play calling.
Our red zone offense in general is hella ugly!!! Gotta stop being cute and go with your best 5 plays.
DEFENSE - C plus:
The defensive line showed up in a major way.
I feel that Nathan Gerry actually played a good 1st half!! I think he's more comfortable at outside backer.
What's not to like about two turnovers? If hey can keep that up, the Eagles will win a few more games.
I think Duke Riley's return made a BIG difference.
Nathan Gerry didn't play a good 2nd half!!! I don't know what happened to Singleton, but for some reason Gerry was moved back to the Mike LB position and the good defensive performance of the 1st half slowly deteriorated.
Cra'von LeBlanc got absolutely touched by Golden Tate, but I'll boil that down to scheme.
No way in hell this team should EVER play press cover zero!
Where were the safeties on Daniel Jone's 80 yard run?
Why were the linebackers (especially Nathan Gerry) so far out of position on Daniel Jone's 80 yard run?
Nathan Gerry in general.
SPECIAL TEAMS - C:
Two missed field goals.
Mass confusion on a punt return. The Eagles left the gunner uncovered! If the Giants coaching staff would of caught it in time they could of simply thrown it to the gunner for a guaranteed 1st down/possible touch down.
