The good news is George Kittle and Jet McKinnon were full participants in practice yesterday. And other good news (if you are so inclined) is that Jimmy G missed thursday’s practice making it more likely Nick Mullens starts. I do want to see Mullens play one more game, and for Jimmy to get fully healthy.
Deebo Samuel is a game-time decision, but he did practice yesterday, so the thought of Deebo out there with Kittle and Brandon Aiyuk presents an amazing array of weapons for BDN to choose from. The likes of which haven’t been seen around these parts since the heady days of Rice, Taylor and Jones.
Defensively we are thin at CB. Sherm is still out, Emmanuel Moseley didn’t participate with a concussion, and Ahkello Witherspoon was limited with a bad hammy. Jason Verrett played very well stepping in. And he made it through the game unscathed. The weakest link is was and will forever be Dontae Johnson. We usually don’t roll up a safety to help the CBs on shorter routes, but it may be in the cards if the Iggles go after Johnson.
The Eagles may not be the pushovers they appear to be, but them travelling to the west coast, and with our offense healthying up, we should be able to take this one.
Greenlaw still not practicing yet. And for your reading pleasure, here’s a great article on what Tartt is doing for the defense.
Even though Philly is 0-3 they are still a better team than both the NY teams. It’s gonna be a hard fought game, they really don’t want to go 0-4. Ball control will win the game. Don’t think we will see as many big runs as usual but with Mullens short passing game we should be able to prevail.
Wentz is the worst QB in the league. I don’t see too big a problem.
A nice recap.
Deebo is cleared to go Sunday night. THis should be awesome.
No Jimmy G, no Witherspoon.
Expect tighter defenses, daring us to throw deep without Garoppolo, focusing on stopping the run and short pass routes. We’ll have to see how well we can adjust to that.
Yeah, I think that’s what they will do also. As long as our OLine holds I think we got to much speed for em. i think we take this one
I think with McKinnon, Deebo, Kittle, and Aiyuk, we can get the ball to somebody open.
New threaad is up.
