Eagles Offensive Line: Strength or Weakness?

With the fourth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles picked a raw but extremely athletic tackle out of Oklahoma, Lane Johnson. Johnson immediately stepped in as the right tackle for the Eagles and by in large, has played well.  However, since that time, the Eagles have had 20 draft picks. They have spent zero on offensive lineman. It was the first time in...

Philadelphia Eagles Mock Draft – 3.0

Thursday is only days away. Rumors about potential targets are ranging everywhere from Marcus Mariota to Shane Ray. Determining every player who the Eagles will select on Thursday, Friday and Saturday is almost an impossible task. The goal of this mock is to get as close to perfect as possible. The Eagles still have the same needs as they did in Mock 2.0, safety, cornerback, wide...

Full Philadelphia Eagles 7-Round Mock Draft – 1.0

Some of the biggest concern’s of the offseason still remain unchecked for the Eagles. For example, a starter is still needed beside Malcolm Jenkins, a starting caliber wide receiver is still needed to replace Jeremy Maclin, and depth still needs to be added to an aging offensive line. Perhaps a low profile free agent will be signed, but the best way to fill these holes is with...

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.

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.
