Let’s get to Philadelphia Eagles Links…

Ranking the 50 Greatest NFL Steals of the Past Decade – ESPN+
10. Jalen Hurts, QB. Despite success at both Alabama and Oklahoma, Hurts’ pro outlook has been called into question in 2020 – specifically his ball position and his ability to take the next step as a passer. He was originally drafted to back up Carson Wentz — who signed the lucrative four-year extension just a year earlier — but quickly became the QB of the future for the Eagles. Hurts’ development reached unexpected levels in Philly, and he led the Eagles to the Super Bowl in his third season. (…) 18. Jordan Mailata, OT. One of the most unique developmental stories in NFL history, Milata was a rugby player before the Eagles took him in the seventh round of the 2018 draft. Many wondered how he would fit into playing football, and many teams ranked him as a priority free agent. Subsequently, Mailata dealt with serious injuries through his first two seasons, and it wasn’t until the 2020 season that he began to show that he could be a potential Philly left tackle of the future. The franchise signed him to a four-year, $64 million extension, and the 6-foot-8, 365-pound player proved he was worth every penny. (BLG note: AJ Brown, Darius Slay, and Javon Hargrave also notably made this list.)

“When you bet on futures in the sports betting market, it’s all about the price and which teams you feel can go deep into the playoffs,” said Maltipes. That can give you a chance to hedge your money and get some free money if the ball bounces your way. With the Cowboys being 16 to 1, you’re risking $100 to win $1,600, so it’s a great price. Here’s why: No repeats team in the NFC East since the Eagles did in 2004. Over the past 10 years, between the Eagles and the Cowboys, they’ve won the division four times each and eight times in total. As we all know in the NFL, injuries play a major role. The Eagles have been third The healthiest team in the NFL, the Pittsburgh Steelers were the team with the least injury, and they didn’t even make the playoffs.

NFC East Mixtape Vol.117: Most Appreciated Players in the Division – BGN Radio
Last week the guys focused on the underrated players, but this week Brandon Lee Gutton and RJ Ochoa are back to discuss the most offensive and defensive players from each team in the division.

Eagles WR Devon Allen Still Insanely Fast – SB Nation
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Devon Allen may have a tough August decision to make. The Eagles are set to open training camp July 25, and Allen hopes to stay on the roster this year after spending the 2023 season on the practice squad. However, Allen may be in Budapest in August. for the 2023 World Championships in Track and Field. Allen is an elite-level hurdler, and this past weekend he ran the USA Track and Field in New York. He finished second in the 110-meter hurdles, with a time of 13.04 seconds, the fourth fastest in the world this year. You can see that race here, with Allen in lane 5.

Which of the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft will your fifth-year picks be? – the athlete
Devonta Smith, WR, Eagles (No. 10). Of the three best receivers in this category, Smith is in the least prolific passing offense. However, the cost of this size did not affect its efficiency or explosiveness. Although he ranks outside the top 10 in target average, explosive catches and gains that lead to first downs or putts, he’s in the top 10 for EPA per target — he ranks third when defenses play man. When Philadelphia needs to get the ball, a good offense often results. Questions about Smith’s size were unfounded, as it was impossible to pressure him or bully him into tight coverage. Smith might be the Marvin Harrison of this era. He’s on his way to becoming a legitimate higher option and should get a fifth-year option.

One trade, free agent signing or extension to all 32 NFL teams ahead of 2023 Training Camp – PFF
Philadelphia Eagles: Sign S. Doron Harmon. The Eagles don’t have any business urgency, whether it’s a major insurance stretch or a glaring need to address it, but adding depth and experience in safety would make sense. Harmon has recorded over 1,000 snaps in three consecutive seasons and provides a reliable presence at the back end at free safety. Philadelphia’s current center group is made up largely of younger and inexperienced players. Harmon had a coverage grade of 77.6 in 2022 with multiple interceptions for the sixth year in a row to go along with a career-high 67 tackles and 11 defensive stops. After a very strong draft that also addressed positional needs, there are virtually no holes in this Eagles roster. Depth at tight end or wide receiver was an area to consider here earlier in the season, but Philadelphia went ahead and added free agents Olamid Zakias and Dan Arnold.

Roob’s Top 10 Receivers: Ranking the Best Receivers in Eagles History – NBCSP
1. Mike Quick: He does not have the most catches, yards or TDs in franchise history. His time as an elite receiver was relatively short. He played 10 matches only five times. He caught just 44 passes after his 29th birthday. He’s not a Hall of Famer, like TO, Pihos, McDonald, and Carmichael. But from 1983 through 1987, before the concrete turf in Veterans Stadium tore his knees apart, Kwik was the best receiver in the world. During that five-year span Quick made five consecutive Pro Bowls, averaged 1,087 yards and 10 TDs per season, led the NFL in touchdowns and was second to James Lofton (by 11 inches per game) in yards per game. He combined speed, strength, agility, body control and great hands, and from 1983 through 1985 he averaged 68 catches, 1,236 yards and 11 TDs and made All-Pro twice. He remains to this day one of only three players in history with three consecutive seasons with 60 catches, 1,000 yards, nine or more TDs, and 17 yards per catch. The others are Lance Allworth and Randy Moss. The only receiver in Eagles history to have made the first-team selection more than once. The best in Eagles history. And if he plays on a grass field? He would have been among the best players ever.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Janarius Robinson gets up with “GMFP” and shares his development as entering the third year, what he learned from Eagles defensive veterans.

Troy Aikman points out the obvious cowboy flaw, but there’s no obvious solution — notation The Boys
Cowboys legend Troy Aikman recently shared his thoughts on what has been holding the team back from championship success since his era. What did Aikman attribute to the failures, and what can Dallas do about it? In recent comments provided to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Mac Engel, Aikman was very candid about his former team’s performance in the big games: “The problem is for them, and they don’t need me to tell them this, they didn’t play their best football when the games were more important “. You don’t need to be an ex-gamer or so-called expert to come to this conclusion. Aikman’s remark is what Cowboys fans have been having nightmares about for over 20 years now.

Daniel Jones: “We Can Compete With Anyone” – Big Blue View
New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is sure to be confident entering the sophomore year with Brian Dabul and Mike Kafka. “We’re confident, and we know we can compete with anyone,” Jones told Ryan Donleavy of the New York Post. Of course, Jones has plenty of reason to be confident. Brian Dabul was named AP Coach of the Year in his first year as head coach (he was named Assistant Coach of the Year in 2020). Meanwhile, Mike Kafka has done well enough in his first season as offensive coordinator that the Indianapolis Colts, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals have all asked for interviews for their vacant coaching positions.

5 O’Clock Club: Leaders defensive line unit ranked 3rd in NFL pre-season 23 – Hogs Haven
As one might expect, the Eagles got a lot of love on both sides of the ball from the ranking service, but the leaders weren’t completely ignored. In particular, PFF seems to believe in Washington’s first-round defensive line, which ranks third behind the Eagles’ 49ers. I was initially confused by PFF’s comment about Chase Young possibly not being on the roster until I realized they were referring, not to the health of his knee. , but to persistent, unfounded rumors about the possibility of Young being traded.

10 reasons why leaders are lighting the dumpster fire this season – PhillyVoice
7) They will most likely have two starting corners. With their first two picks in the 2023 draft, the Chiefs have selected a running back, and both are expected to start. They selected Emmanuel Forbes with the 16th pick overall because of his pitching ability (14 INTs and six pick-ups in the last three seasons at MSU). But… at 6’1, 166, he’s quite skinny, so there will be concerns about his durability and physique that are next level. It’ll be interesting to see how he holds up against a guy like, oh, courier, 226-pound AJ Brown, who would outweigh Forbes by literally 60 pounds. In the second round they selected Quan Martin, a versatile defensive back who will likely spend most of his time at cornerback as a starter. These guys may be good at the right time, but it’s very reasonable to expect some growing pains for the pass defense if the leaders start two starting corners.

Miles Sanders: I know Duce Staley will get the best of me – PFT
Sanders returned to the Philadelphia area for soccer camp this week and said he has “good memories” of his time with the Eagles. Some of these memories involve Staley and helped guide him toward the Panthers once he landed in free agency. “It means a lot. I swear,” Sanders said via The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Josh Tolentino. “He’s probably the main reason I’m coming back. I have this connection with him. I know how to train. I know it will be the best of me. Most importantly, he knows what I’m about, and he’s the one who framed me. We’ll get back to what we were doing.”

Why wildfires in Canada will affect air quality for weeks to come – Vox
1) How do wildfires affect air quality in the United States? Wildfires have had a significant impact on air quality in many US states. In the past few months, they have affected different parts of the country due to the locations of the fires as well as weather patterns that have carried the smoke south. In May, western states including Montana and Colorado issued air quality warnings as fires in British Columbia and Alberta contributed to the smoke in those areas. In early June, East Coast states and cities, including New York and Philadelphia, issued air quality alerts due to heavy smoke and haze in the area.
