Let’s get to Philadelphia Eagles links…
Ranking all 32 RB1s en route to 2022 NFL season: Christian McCaffrey relegates to 10th – NFL.com
31) Miles Sanders. Even as Sanders continues as RB1, there are a number of factors working against him. He’s been hit hard (he lost five games in 2021), the Eagles are turning their backs (Kenneth Jenwell and Boston Scott are also in the mix) and the running game is running through double-threat quarterback Galen Hurts.
Boring training camp? This means that your team is good. – Leva (BGN)
When it comes to the Philadelphia Eagles, there’s almost something interesting to talk about once you start boot camp. And while the 2022 Eagles enter camp with some interesting storylines, specifically QB Jalen Hurts’ play, there isn’t a lot to impress just yet. In fact, the start of this year’s camp was…well…boring? There’s no doubt that everyone watches Hurts’ every throw eagerly, eager to see if he shows enough improvement as a pass to command an effective passing attack. But one of the things that makes training camp so interesting is watching players compete for jobs, which is not a thing at Eagles camp this year. So yeah, boot camp this year lacked a little juice. That’s fine. It just means they have to be good.

You Won’t Believe How Many Times Pascal Vomited – NBCSP
This was worse than anything you could imagine. “I was vomiting like crazy,” said Zach Pascal. “Like 50 times. I couldn’t stop vomiting.” Pascal, who signed a one-year free agent contract with the Eagles in May, developed food poisoning before the Eagles started training camp, and they thought he was getting better, took a worse turn late last week and found himself in the hospital for four Days, he had surgery while he was there and eventually was good enough to train on a limited basis on Thursday. He said, “I’m still trying to recover from everything.” “My body is still recovering from that so I am trying to start slowly.” He missed. Pascal for the first five days of training plus two days of touring and countless meetings.
QBs and pressure: Why Jimmy Garoppolo is in Limbo – Football Outsiders
Galen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles. Another scrambler, and the most prolific of them all. Hurts led the NFL with 50 scrambles and was second behind Allen by 416 yards…and when you consider Allen throwing over 200 more passes, Hurts will hit him far with scrambled rate if that’s something we felt we’d combine. Hurt also excelled when harassed at avoiding sacks (5th lowest sack average) and producing big plays (6th best yards per achievement).
Eagles Training Camp: Observing the ups and downs of the first week – The Enquirer
The Fall: Nakobi Dean. Like Bradbury, he was a quiet camp for Dean. Unlike Bradberry, this is not necessarily a good thing. It’s early on, and Dean will likely have plenty of opportunities to make an impact in pre-season games, but he didn’t make many plays initially. He has worked mostly with the second team except for a few occasions in a row starting off, at the moment it is safe to say that TJ Edwards, Kyzir White and even Davion Taylor are ahead of him in the depth scheme at full-back. Sean Bradley played well enough to challenge some defensive shots as well. Dean could still evolve into a starter at some point, but it’s not quite there yet.

Anthony Barr Deal Proves Cowboys Want To Improve, But Other Situations Still Need Help – Blogging The Boys
The addition of another player with experience in tight division games was a step in the right direction, and the first real indication that while the Cowboys will be good at the list building nature they are talking about 24/7. After a slower, wander-type workout on Wednesday, the Cowboys ramped up their intensity once again with cushioning exercises on Thursday and Saturday.

Another player is gone and another young player in Washington described him as quitting – Hughes Haven
Near the start of training camp, Coach Rivera announced that former 2020 fourth-round pick, and wide future-turned-tight end, Antonio Gandy Golden, has decided to retire from the NFL and go back to school. Fans in general seemed supportive of what was probably a difficult decision. On Friday, Ron Rivera once again announced to the assembled media that a young player had decided to “move from football”. This time, the player was a free agent for the college, Tre Walker, who previously worked at the University of Idaho.
NFL 2023 Draft No. 1 Overall Selection Predictions: Odds of Bryce Young, CJ Stroud, Will Anderson Jr. being top pick, plus long shots – ESPN+
Serious competitors. Bryce Young, QB, Alabama. Expected chance of achieving first place overall: 20%. Why it could be a better pick: The Heisman Award winner is the complete package when focusing solely on his playing style. He is able to defeat defenses in a variety of ways and can win out of pocket and by scrambling to make plays out of it. However, what distinguishes it most is its poise. Young plays the game with the same heart no matter the situation, a trait that helped him lift 4,872 yards and pass 47 touchdowns. From an NFL rating standpoint, Young is entering a crucial junior season as scouts will want to see him improve pocket maneuverability as a bystander. At 6 feet 194 pounds, denizens will be talking about his height and frame for the next nine months. Young isn’t built like other quarterbacks who are 6 feet or less, such as Russell Wilson, Drew Brees, and Keeler Murray, because his shoulders aren’t as strong and don’t have the downforce of others. Opinions will likely remain mixed about Young leading up to the draft next spring, but his talent, poise, and accuracy are undeniable.
