Thank you for joining the weekly chat. The Eagles are still alive entering December. What's on your mind today? Let's get to your questions...
I believe so, as far as stretching out the defense and forcing opponents to respect the deep ball. That hasn't been the case this year. Wallace was supposed to fill that role.
I agree. Lane Johnson said last week was the first time since the Minnesota game he really got to practice.
I'd say Darby, because it's a premium position. But I still think he could get paid.
Clement still has a key role, especially on third downs. You won't see much of Smallwood on offense.
I believe one returns. My guess is Wallace. ...As far as the defense, they'll get some pieces back, which will help considerably. If they can win on Monday, I think they'll be healthier for Dallas.
He's still developing, and that's one area to develop. He has a lot of speed around the edge when he can get a step, but as you mentioned, he needs to be quick off the ball.
Won't happen unless there's an injury.
Still not ready to practice, as far as I know.
Mills and Maddox are closer than Jones, from what I understand.
I wasn't yelling in the press box, and I don't think they need to be a run-first team. But a run game does help, especially with the O-line they have. They trusted their running backs and didn't abandon the run. It'll help them going forward.
You never say never with Peters, and I thought last year would be it for him, but I can see this being his final year when you consider the cap implications of keeping him.
He was injured during the spring and didn't have great athletic testing. A lot of running backs were out there, too. But he was productive at Notre Dame. Eagles did a good job signing him. They should never have cut him, either.
Wentz is their QB, no questions about it. As for Foles, I don't know. Giants, Jacksonville, Bucs?
I'd say yes, but he must prove he can stay healthy to get big money. He knows it, too. This is the third year he's missing time because of injuries.
You can't usually do it every down because teams can adjust against you. But if pass rush wins at point of attack, it doesn't matter. That's what mattered.
I'd say 8-8 or 9-7. If they're 8-8, they don't get in. If they're 9-7, they do.
I don't think it's hype. In a bad division, they're the favorites. They have a good defense with an elite pass rusher; they have an elite running back; and they now have a very good WR to give them balance. Eagles can beat them, but that's a good Cowboys team.
Interesting question, I'll take a look.
My guess is yes, unless he chooses to leave. They shouldn't replace him. He's not the problem.
Depends on how board falls. I'd say second or third rounds for a RB.
I don't think secondary will be as much as a draft priority unless the right player is there.
I think the Saints win. They're the best team in football right now. Sure, the Cowboys can win -- I just don't think they do.
