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.
