Behind Enemy Lines with cover32 Philadelphia Eagles

The Rams face off against the Philadelphia Eagles this week, so I sent five questions to Philadelphia Eagles managing editor Tim Weaver to get his thoughts on the matchup. 1. The Eagles are off to a 3-1 start, but they had to come back from fairly significant deficits in all three of their wins and then lost last week. Any explanation? Football is weird. Part of the explanation is...

Damage control mode for Eagles (3-0) heading to San Francisco…

Tough road trip to the left coast for the Eagles is even more challenging now because of the myriad of injuries afflicting the team which, as our Florida correspondent Palmy pointed out, is really not an unusual situation for a lot of NFL teams these days. I think the conditioning and the physical training of the Eagles are solid— it’s just that injuries in a high speed collision...

Philadelphia Eagles at Indianapolis Colts: 2014 Week 2 NFL Pick

Philadelphia Eagles (1-0) at Indianapolis Colts (0-1) The Eagles were down 17-0 early against the Jaguars last week at home, before coming back and winning 34-17. Their offense looked solid again, as it did last season with Nick Foles, but their defense continued to struggle. This line suggests these two teams are even, but I don’t think that’s the case right now as the Eagles’...

Philadelphia Eagles need “next man up” to work out for offensive line

“Next man up” isn’t just an NFL catch-phrase for the Philadelphia Eagles right now – it has to be for real. Philly’s offensive line has been hit early in the 2014 season.  Earlier this week, three players were put on IR, including guard Evan Mathis and tackle Allen Barbre.  Barbre is on the season ending injured reserve with an ankle injury while Mathis (sprained MCL...

Philadelphia Eagles begin patching O-line

The Philadelphia Eagles entered Sunday’s matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a small patch on the offensive line. Allen Barbre started at RT for the suspended Lane Johnson, a small change to the remarkably healthy offensive line of 2013 that had the same five starters for over 98% of offensive snaps. The Eagles left Sunday’s game needing two fresh patches, as LG Evan...

MAILBAG: How will the Philadelphia Eagles handle losses on offensive line?

If this were a Madden season one might be tempted to press the reset button. Not only did the Philadelphia Eagles look obscenely vulnerable in their “win” over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, but it brought a number of long-standing concerns about the team to the forefront much quicker than we’d anticipated. All summer long we’ve been defending Nick Foles here and predicting...

Since the Eagles are now without the services of LG Evan Mathis (sprained MCL tendon) and RT-fill-in Allen Barbre (high ankle sprain) for the immediate future, and with starting RT Lane Johnson still out for three more games as he serves his PED-related suspension, I thought you might like to know a little more about the “Next Men Up” on the offensive line.
