Should Eagles burn the Tampa tape…or study it intensely?

By: jaxsportsmedia | September 18, 2018 I don’t take a whole lot from an early season road loss, as it’s usually an anomaly in a winning season. You can go back and look at tons of championship teams who blew their lunches on the road in the second game of a season. It happens. What makes the Eagles’ loss to Tampa Bay a little bit frightening is the combination of attrition to injuries (LT Jason Peters [a strained quad], WR Mike Wallace [a fractured fibula] and Jay Ajayi [chronic back spasms], and a generic breakdown in defensive secondary coverages....

Eagles outplayed and outsmarted by Tampa Bay, 27-21

Had the Ravens not disdained a PAT for a failed 2-point conversion try, and had the Bengals not benefited from a defensive holding call in the final minutes of the game, the ultimate winning score could easily have been 28-24. Anyway, the lesson to be learned by the Eagles from that game is to have a better...

Eagles prepare for Tampa Bay as BRISUKSEGG FF opens 7th season…

By: jaxsportsmedia | September 12, 2018 The Eagles did some roster shuffling in advance of Sunday’s upcoming game at Tampa. After releasing safety Tre Sullivan, they re-signed him to the Practice Squad. They released cornerback De’Vante Bausby. They released WR Markus Wheaton then re-signed WR Kamar Aiken. They also officially announced that Nick Foles will start at QB against Tampa Bay. No big surprise there, as Carson Wentz is still not medically cleared for contact. However, Wentz is running the scout team in 11-on-11 drills in practice this week. Three Takeaways From Jim Schwartz: Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz addressed...
