G. Cobb's Birds Podcast - Eagles Should Be Practicing As Much As Possible
The Eagles should be working out as much as possible as a team. They shouldn't be hitting, but they should running their offense and competing with their defense, but without any tackling. Nobody would be wearing equipment, but they need to get the timing in sync on every route and every play. It takes repetition to get the team prepared. I don't like the fact that the team is taking this time off.
Eagles O & D Don't Get It Done In The Red Zone
The Eagles offense was poor in the red zone after the Jalen Hurts to Quez Watkins 91 yard pass and catch. The defense left Niners wide receiver Jauan Jennings by himself in the red zone for an easy score. The poor red zone play cost them the game.
The Eagles vs. Niners Will Be High Scoring
I think both the Eagles and the Niners will both be able to move the ball effectively. It's going to be a high scoring game. I have the Eagles winning 27 to 24, but it could be higher. I wouldn't be surprised if both team get into the 30's.
Key Matchups When The Eagles Have The Football Vs 49ers
The Niners secondary has been depleted by injuries, so the Eagles wide receivers and tight ends will be open. The Birds will be able to throw the ball. They can also run the ball against the Niners because their defensive linemen are always flying upfield at the snap of the ball and trying to get to the quarterback.
The Eagles will be able to move the ball against the Niners on the ground and through the air, but they must avoid turnovers. Jordan Mailata must handle Nick Bosa. Lane Johnson must handle Arik Armstead and Dee Ford and not allow them to pressure and sack Hurts and cause a turnovers..
Quarterback Jalen Hurts must keep two hands on the football, when he drops into the pocket. They must avoid turnovers.
is Fletcher Cox Giving His Best Effort?
Fletcher Cox had zero tackles, zero assists and zero sacks in the game against the Atlanta Falcons. That makes you ask the question of whether he is giving his best effort or not.
I checked out the tape and Cox is being double-teamed. That is opening up opportunities for his teammates, but Fletcher shouldn't be taking those plays off.
He needs to attack one of the O linemen blocking him in the same way Aaron Donald of the Rams does. Fletcher is so powerful he can attack one of the offensive linemen, blow him back and still be a factor in the play.
I understand that he will get tired at times. That's fine, but he shouldn't be taking plays off.
He almost got a couple of sacks in that game. He's still a great player and he should give the team all he has when he's on the field.
Eagles Game Balls Vs. The Falcons
The Eagles won the battle upfront on both sides of the ball, but the defense didn’t start out that way. Jalen Hurts and Jason Kielce stood on the offense and Javon Hargrave, Hassan Ridgeway and Josh Sweat on the defense. Punter Arryn Siposs got the award for Special Teams.
True Eagles Football Insight
Too young to remember his days playing for the Eagles, but old enough to remember listening to G Cobb when he was a broadcaster on 610 WIP in Philadelphia. Always a treat to hear him talk football, but even more fun to hear his Eagles insight!
