Thank you for joining the weekly chat. Training camp FINALLY begins this week. Let's get to all your questions...
I'd say linebacker and third safety. I think they have the cornerbacks they need on the team. I'm not sure about LB and safety. They really need Jordan Hicks to stay healthy or a player like Nate Gerry/Corey Nelson/Kamu Grugier-Hill to emerge as reliable.
Funny -- it is odd Elliott had trouble from close in and was so reliable from far out. I'm curious if that changes with the sample size. Elliott is a player worth monitoring this summer, too.
Brian Dawkins in term of popularity. I'd say Dawkins was more popular, considering Eagles' spot in the city. But Utley has a ring.
I don't know the answer to it, and I hope it doesn't happen anytime soon. Merrill is an institution in this city.
Only two I believe -- Temple hosts East Carolina on Oct. 6 and the Eagles host the Vikings on Oct. 7. Temple hosts Cincinnati on Oct. 20 and the Eagles host Carolina on Oct. 21.
I think Eagles are clearly the best team, but I like what the Giants have done this offseason and I think the Cowboys will be better with Ezekiel Elliott back and Tyron Smith healthy. Those two teams are the top challengers. I think Washington is No. 4.
Yes, if he's healthy, I think he does so. If Eagles get early leads, though, maybe he's 3500-3900.
A bit, but not overtaking Wallace. I think Hollins plays a role, but I think they like Wallace and his deep speed.
Good question. Might be a complicated, although I don't think the anthem is an issue with the Eagles. I'm perplexed by all the safeties on the market -- Reid, Kenny Vaccaro, Tre Boston. I don't have a good answer. But the Eagles would be well served to look at the safety market.
I think it would be a veteran who off injury. So if it's a surprise cut, maybe someone like Maragos? I don't see that happening, but if I'm predicting a possibility, I guess that's one.
I think so, but maybe not Week 1. He could start the year on PUP.
No, but they have to earn their spots. Eagles could keep 5 RBs like they did last year. I think they give Pumphrey every chance to make the team.
I think the Eagles wanted to go cheaper at that position.
No, I don't. I see his role as a rotational RB. I still think the Eagles draft a RB next year.
All year? Yes. Next year? No. Unless a Bridgewater situation happens, I can't see Eagles getting what they'd want in a trade.
End of the day, Doug Pederson is calling plays. I think losing those voices in the room matters, but it's still Pederson's offense and he's still calling the plays. I think that's the key.
Nothing that will affect his standing on the team.
It depends what's learned about the incident.
I don't think an overhaul. I think the Eagles go with seven or eight players they trust can play, then they'll carry one or two for development. They still need to guard against injury.
Thank you for all the questions. Stay tuned for all our training camp coverage.
