Early 2021 Ranking for Fantasy Football, Quarterback – Sharp Football Analysis
10. Jalen Hurts: Hurts scored 19.3, 37.8, 18.6 and 16.3 points in his four starts last season after the Philadelphia season was a lost cause. His 272 rushing yards in those starts was number two in league history for a quarterback during his first career four starts behind Lamar Jackson. Hurts were last in the league in completion rate (52%), but also last in expected completion rate (55.5%), according to the NFL Next Gen Stats. Despite that, he still led all rookie passers-by in yards per game. Care attempt (7.7 Y / A) from a clean pocket. If the Eagles commit to hurting for a season, he joins the high-floor group, helped rush the production with the top of going down in the air if he improves from a passing stance.
NFL Mock Draft Roundup: 1
The feeling here is that the Eagles cannot go into this year’s draft with the idea that they are taking a quarterback at No. 6 no matter what. Will not see them force it like that. If they are completely in love with Fields (or someone else), QB is a reasonable choice. The overall goal should be to acquire a difference-maker at the elite level, almost regardless of position.
Solak Show 002: If they hurt when they had Wentz … – BGN Radio
In this week’s episode of The Solak Show, Benjamin Solak breaks down the Eagles’ approach when drafting Jalen Hurts in the 2020 NFL Draft, and how this approach indicates that they take a quarterback at 6 in total, no matter how they like to hurt internally. After the break, he joins Zach Hicks from Stampede Blue (29:15) to speak to Carson Wentz in Indianapolis. How much does Frank Reich have in the building? Which coaches take which approaches to revive his career? Are the Colts actually better?
Eagles mailbag: Ranking of 2021 NFL head coaching staff – PhillyVoice
1) Brandon Staley, Chargers: I like Staley as a young upcoming coach, but also, Chargers can actually be good. In the short term, it will be hard not to improve on a 2020 season that started 3-9. In the long run, Justin Herbert will keep them competitive. . … 3) Arthur Smith, Falcons: The Falcons are in a similar situation to the Eagles, requiring some demolition before they can rebuild, but I give Smith a slight advantage over Nick Sirianni. … 4) Nick Sirianni, Eagles: The bet here is that the first two seasons will not be beautiful, but it looks like Sirianni will have some time to turn things around. An unexpectedly decent season in year 1 or 2 would exceed expectations.
Pass Catchers – Iggles Blitz
This recipient class is deep and talented. It is amazing that year after year we see amazing classes. Shouldn’t we run out of great views? The passing game has exploded all over the football world, and that means there are more talented receivers than ever. This fact makes it especially frustrating that the Eagles do not seem to be building a good receiving corps. I do not know if it is more drafting, coaching or schedule / QB games. The point is, the Eagles need to change this. You can not win in today’s NFL without good receivers. I don’t think the Eagles have to take a receiver at 6, but they need to add a talented player to the mix. It can be an addition to trade or free agent. Or the Eagles could use a mid-round pick. They need to add more talent. They need competition. The current group of recipients has not earned the right to rely on anything other than a chance.
2021 NFL Offseason: All 32 Teams WR Situations Prior to Free Agency Draft – NFL.com
As a team, the Eagles had the lowest completion rate (55.9) and tied to the fewest yards per game. Attempts (6.2) last season. Specifically, receivers caught only 56.7 percent of the passes thrown their way, which was the second lowest rate for any team. Philly will have to bring in the right mix of receivers to supplement the one taking over at QB1 (whether it’s Jalen Hurts or another) after Carson Wentz’s trade, and to potentially compensate for the loss of a truly key pass tight end Zach Ertz, who is a cut-off candidate). Thus, the Eagles may have to downsize – this is a team that my model marks as in danger of potentially overpaying because they have needs where the expected available free agents are expected to fetch a high price. Meanwhile, they have the sixth overall pick, but it’s probably not quite high enough to capitalize on a strong return from quarterback-needing teams.
Four out of seven new coaches had only one interview in the 2021 cycle – PFT
The list reveals that four of them (Campbell, Culley, Meyer and Nick Sirianni) of the seven hired coaches only had one interview during the entire cycle. In the end, Bieniemy was requested by all seven teams; however, the Eagles reportedly did not actually report him. All teams except the Texans requested an interview with Saleh – who was one of the candidates recommended for ownership by quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Secret Base Reviews: Fan Controlled Football – SB Nation
On February 13, a new football league came into our lives. It’s one of the most creative, interest-spiking ideas I’ve seen in a while: A football league where fans call pieces and make decisions. It may sound good, but does the league make a quality product? Over the last two weeks, I’ve analyzed the game on my twitch channel, and it’s time to get those notes off. Let’s see.
