Eagles may be ready to take a Chance on Warmack

Eagles may be ready to take a Chance on Warmack”

"I don't want to push any panic buttons at this time", Pederson said on Monday.

Now, I don't expect the Eagles to have a whole lot of success running the ball against a very strong New York Giants front.

Pederson said Wednesday that there are a multitude of factors in play when it comes to Wentz's ineffectiveness on screen passes and short routes to the sidelines. The Eagles need to be patient, pick their spots, and win the line of scrimmage against NY.

The Eagles can be a functional running team. "I don't know what they're looking at". Maybe give Corey Clement a shot. Certainly get Wendell Smallwood involved.

In his rookie season, Wentz threw the ball a franchise-record 607 times. Against Washington, it looked like the Eagles were fairly committed to running the ball, but the game remained close throughout the second half until Brandon Graham's strip sack which was returned for a touchdown by Fletcher Cox late in the fourth quarter. The Eagles are moving the football. In Kansas City, the red zone was again a bugaboo, as it was last season.

In the offseason, the Eagles signed free agent running back LeGarrette Blount, who was a member of the New England Patriots team that won the Super Bowl last season. "We'll go in and say, "Hey, this group has 'X" amount of tipped passes or a percentage of tipped passes throughout the season, ' and knowing that, then we can either adjust his drop to get it a little bit deeper, we can work on him sliding and finding windows and lanes in the pocket".

Moreover, the Eagles' passing game continues to funnel towards the middle of the field, primarily through tight end Zach Ertz (who is now the Eagles' leading receiver), and slot receiver Nelson Agholor. "They need to fix that position because he's a liability right now". The teams that run the football effectively give it a chance to develop. Or is there a good reason why the Eagles have run the ball so little? The closest thing to a feature back for Pederson has been Darren Sproles. When the Eagles try to run it on first down, they often end up losing a few yards, which forces them into more pass-oriented play calling. And somehow the Eagles still managed to go 8-of-15 on third down in the game. "If he's running it or throwing quick, that defensive line can get neutralized". In Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, he was dominated.

NFL QB Power Rankings: Where does Wentz fit? I expect more out of the Eagles' run game. He had his ups and downs, like the rest of the line past year.

The problem is, as Bleeding Green Nation points out, Wentz completed just 1-of-6 screen pass attempts against the Chiefs. In the rematch at the Linc in December, the Eagles raced out to a 14-0 lead and Wentz had just 28 pass plays called against 26 carries for the backs.

"The obvious answer is just be more productive on first and second down". He worked All-Pro guard Zack Martin back in Week 1 in the Dallas game.

Philadelphia was riddled with dropped passes, ill-advised fumbles, and controversial coaching strategies that cost the Eagles a few games and possibly a playoff berth last season. He's a worry, always, but not the biggest worry.

-The strength of the Eagles' defense is their front four. The Giants have an excellent foursome with good edge rushers in Jason Pierre-Paul (who I never thought would come back to this level after his hand injury) and Olivier Vernon.
