Nick in Philly

It’s amazing they are only 10 minutes from taking his team to the superbowl. Best Offensive Line great weapons around Hurts. The defense is really solid too. With what is considered to be by Eagles fans the worst Owner in the league in Lurie they had and continue to have a terrific season. It’s only Nicks second season it really shows how poorly we underestimated him.

Many forget….   Sirianni started poorly and slowly in Philly.   His intro news conference was considered terrible and I’m probably being generous.  
 

Then the regular season started, and the Eagles I believe started 1-3 and 2-5.   
 

There were plenty of stories that wondered if Sirianni would finish his first year as the HC?   But his team turned it around going I think 7-3 and they made the playoffs.   Then they won 13 games this regular season?   Or was it 14? 
 

Suddenly, Sirianni is highly thought of.  Hey, I’m glad for him.  I’m just saying he started badly and almost didn’t get a chance to show what he can do.  Sometimes a little patience goes a long way.

 The Eagles have been playing well but they had the second easiest schedule in the league, beat a so-so Giants team and a SF team that was down to its 4th string qb. 
  I hope KC wins for 3 reasons:

1. I love the way Mahomes plays 

2. I hate the Eagles (the laundry, not the players).

3. I’m dying to see somebody try and lift Andy up on their shoulders.

WRs - 2 #1 WRs, one through a trade

OL - top 3 in the league at least 

QB - evolution of Hurts as a passer has been amazing 

 

DL - Hargrave, Suh, Joseph all great FA signings to add to an already deep outstanding DL

LBs - key FA signing with Haason Reddick that changed everything 

CBs - key FA signings in Bradberry and C J Gardner Johnson in the slot who can possibly shut down Kelce to go with Darius Slay

 

They have talent at every level of offense and defense. If the Chiefs pull this off, it would be one heck of a coaching job that would have to be executed.

 

Its night and day, the Eagles talent vs Colts talent. To say Sirianni had help would be understating it.

Like watching Mahomes play, but still prefer Philly to win.  The Eagles are the more rounded team as far as talent goes. 

I agree that the Eagles are the better team. Great players at almost every position.  I think they will win but I am not rooting for them.

The eagles have superior talent compared to the colts. Their FO went out and made great trades and free agent aquisitions. They showed how to build a super bowl roster unlike Ballard.

  Hmm…yet they beat those inferior Colts by 1 point? A game in which (by the way), the Colts would have won if not for a missed face mask.

   I’m not saying the Eagles don’t have a darn good team but consider their schedule and who they’ve played in the playoffs (Giants and 5th string QB 49ers) .

    If they go out and beat KC by multiple scores, my hats off to them. Until then, I think they are a bit overrated, especially here in Philly.

Nick Sirianni landed a "dream job" in Philadelphia.

 

Great owner and GM.

 

A team that has improved it's roster during his time there.

 

Not a significant amount of injuries this year.

 

Best wishes to the Eagles - I predict they dominate the Super Bowl and hoist their second Lombardi.

    • Any reports on how day one went? Can't find much info out there. 
    • The Colts spent big on resigning players this past offseason.  However, I see a lot of roster turnover heading into next offseason with limited cap space.   Round 1 - Edge Princely Umanmielen (Florida) - In four years has 24.5 TFLS including 14.5 sacks.  In 2023 he ranked 4th among Power Five edge defenders in pass-rush win rate (22.2%) and his 42 run-defense stops since 2022 are tied for second. 98% a clone to Laiatu Latu.  Project resign Dayo but Ebukam/Lewis are on the bubble while Genard Avery is a free agent.   Round 2 - WLB Harold Perkins Jr. (LSU) - As a true freshman led all LBs in Power Five linebackers with a 91.0 pass-rush grade and second among all LBs in the country with 18 QB knockdowns (sacks/hits) and tied for second in the country with 4 *.  Since 2014 era, that ranks third best behind Rueben Bain Jr (freshman) in 2023 and Myles Garrett in 2014. EJ Speeds replacement.    Round 3 - S Keon Sabb (Alabama) –From backup to a starter while at Michigan, he made the most of his 360 snaps.  As a sophomore Sabb was only one of six Power Five safeties to earn an 80+ grades in both coverage and run defender.  Sabb replaces Blackmon.   Round 4 - TE Caden Prieskorn (Mississippi) – Started 2023 with a knee injury missing the first three games.  A Memphis transfer, Prieskorn 449 receiving yards were 9th most among all CFB TEs.  His 1051 receiving yards and 527 YAC since 2022 both rank fourth.  Both Mo Allie-Cox and Kylen Granson (project resign) are upcoming FAs.   Round 5 - LB/SAF CJ Taylor (Vanderbilt) – 6’1” 201 pounds. Taylor spent 55% of his snaps near the defensive LOS and in the box in 2023.  In 2022 he was 3rd among SEC safeties with an 84.9 PFF coverage grade, while his 10 pressures ranked 1st.  In 2023 he was third among all LBs in the conference with a 61.8 passer rating allowed.  Reminds me of Jaylon Carlies whom the Colts just drafted in R5P151.  Carlies is currently listed as 3rd string MLB.  Segun Olubi is the backup behind MLB Franklin and has proven enough to resign after this season.  Projected cuts SLB Cameron McGrone (6’1” 236 pounds) (2024 FA) and SLB Liam Anderson (6’3” 236 pounds) (2024 FA).  Add another 30 pounds to Taylor move to SLB.   Round 6 - IDL Joey Slackman (Florida) final 2023 defense grade while at Pennsylvania, 90.1 (3rd), 92.8 run defense grade (1st), pass rush 71.9 (91st), and a 60.5 coverage grade.  Averaging 48.5 TOT a season along with 4 sacks.  Built like Grover Stewart at 6’4” 300 pounds and has the chance to take over Stewart’s job after a year of mentorship.  Places Davis on the bubble and replaces Taven Bryan.  See how well Slackman does moving to Florida versus much stronger competition.  Could see his draft stock improve.   Round 7 - RB-KR Ismail Mahdi (Texas State) –After his first 6 games in 2023 he had 9 KO RET for 280 yards averaging 31.1 yards which ranked 5th as a KR during that timeframe.  In 2023 rushed for 1331 yards on 223 carriers averaging 6.0 with 10 TDs.  Also proven back that can catch averaging 260 yards a season on 25 catches.  Trey Serman (2024 FA) and Tyler Goodson (2024 FA).   UDFAs LS Byron Floyd (PITT) junior – Floyds 81.7 grade this season leads all FBS LS.  Of his 41 LS on both punts/kicks only one has been charted as off-target.  Does have ties to Colts new DL coach.   WR De’Corian Clark (UTSA) – been compared to Alec Pierce.  Got elite athletic skills.  Made Bruce Feldman’s Freaks List at #94.  In HS he jumped 24’8”, hit 22.2 MPH on the GPS and clocked a 4.31 shuttle time.  Also ran a 4.49s-forty time, had a 10’1” broad jump, and a 35” vertical jump while power-clean 345 pounds.  
    • Interesting….   I think Pittsburg getting rid of their 2023 QB room, Pickett and the backup and bringing in Wilson AND Fields for next to nothing is (IMO) the best off-season transformation by any NFL team including the Colts.      Wilson AND Fields for almost nothing?!?   Yes,  please!    FWIW:  Fields is being used in camp as a returner.  Punt for sure and I think kickoffs as well.     
    • Sometimes you win some of these close games and sometimes you lose. We won a game similar to this in Game 3 vs NY when Nembhard hit that 35 foot game winner. That saved our season because NY could have went up 3-0 had that not gone in. Take the good with the bad and move on.
    • #10 is gonna make a huge difference on offense!!!
