Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …
Way-Too-Early Eagles, Saints Prop Bets – Football Outsiders
If the Eagles are 4-2 or 5-1 at the end, they’ll be in contention for a playoff berth and the NFC East crown as their schedule tightens. If they fade a little mid-season, they’ll still enjoy a Giants-Bears double in early December, and they’ll likely have something to play for in Week 18 against the Giants, who could be the GM. starting Joe Schoen. at quarterback by then. So, the Eagles’ schedule starts with some teams still going strong in September and ends with weak teams that could assess their practice squads in January. If the Eagles had started with, say, the Packers, Cowboys, Vikings and Saints, the public wouldn’t have been so optimistic about their ability to stay in the playoff hunt. But the Eagles schedule layout likely sent Sharps and Eagles fans scrambling for their favorite sportsbook app, prompting the house to move the line to even the action. Regardless of how the games are rearranged, the Eagles have the simplest 2022 schedule in the NFL according to DVOA. 9.5 wins is closer than 8.5 to the number emanating from our projections as they chill on the windowsill. But Walkthrough still took over as soon as our phone, computer and bookmaker were talking to each other again.
NFL win totals, more than fewer picks and best bets for all 32 teams – The Athletic
Eagles Over 9.5 (-115). Not only did the Eagles get better while the Cowboys got worse, but the COs actually traded for Carson Wentz when the Giants are really in rebuilding mode (and probably don’t have as much hope for Daniel Jones). Plus, the first half of their schedule is pretty soft — they could be 4-0 going into a Week 5 game at Arizona.
NFL Betting 2022: Implied Market Power Rankings and ELO Schedule Strength – PFF
19. PHILADELPHIA EAGLESPoints deviation above the average: 0.03. Opponent’s ELO rating: 29th. Toughest schedule stretch: Weeks 11-13. Philadelphia could easily be considered the winner of the offseason, but the bookies seem less excited about the team’s prospects for 2022. The Eagles are the last team with a positive point distribution above average and will play one of the easiest highlights on the NFL schedule. Considering all the team additions, Jalen Hurts being a neutral player compared to where he was last year could again result in a playoff berth for Philadelphia.
James Bradberry and the Eagles agree to one-year deal – BGN
You wanted James Bradberry? Well, you got it! Howie Roseman made many Philadelphia Eagles fans very happy Wednesday morning by signing the free agent cornerback to a one-year, $10 million deal. UPDATE: Adam Schefter says the contract is worth $7.25 million guaranteed with an additional $2.5 million “up”.
James Bradberry signs one-year contract with Philadelphia Eagles
The New York Giants released Bradberry earlier this month after failing to secure a trade partner for the Pro Bowl cornerback. Bradberry was the top cornerback on the New York depth chart, but his looming $21.9 million salary cap made him impossible to keep. Now, Bradberry will be able to face his former team twice a year in a secondary that also includes four-time Pro Bowler Darius Slay. New York will save $2 million from the cap next year (in 2023) to offset the guaranteed portion of Bradberry’s contract.
Eagles Add Bradberry – Iggles Blitz
I had my doubts about what was going on. More than a few teams need help from CB, so I thought there might be a bit of a bidding war for Bradberry. Not that he was elite or anything close to that, but he was the best guy out there, which gave him some leverage. I guess the market was weaker than expected. The report says the Eagles paid him $10 million, but the actual number will likely be lower. Bradberry is playing for a good team and in a scheme that suits him. The Giants cut him in May did him a disservice. If Bradberry can have a good year, he can enter free agency next March and get one last good deal. It will be a huge year for him.
Bradberry explains why he chose the Eagles – NBCSP
Why did he remove the Eagles from the squad? All it took was one look at the list. Mainly the defensive line. “I’ve seen the guys on the D line and as a DB sometimes your best friend is the D line,” he said. “So I can’t wait.” Bradberry, who signed a one-year contract with the Eagles earlier Wednesday, spoke with NBC Sports Philadelphia’s John Clark at Philadelphia International Airport Wednesday night after arriving in town.
Biggest remaining offseason priority for every NFC team: Can the 49ers appease Deebo Samuel? – NFL.com
Top priority: celebrate the signing of James Bradberry. When I originally wrote this article, I had suggested signing Bradberry as the Eagles’ top priority (are you proud, Dad?) – and then they agreed the terms of a deal with him shortly before it was published. With few other dire needs left on the list, let’s take a look at why this move is working so well. Imagine: your sworn enemy is forced to free his top corner. Said wedge then falls into your lap. Bradberry is second in the league the past six seasons with 82 passes defended. Only Philadelphia’s Darius Slay (84) has more. Putting the two together gives the Eagles a menacing pair of cover men and reinforces a weakness in front of Slay. The alternative would have been to let less savory options Zech McPhearson, Kary Vincent Jr., Mac McCain and Tay Gowan fight for the lead roles.
While Cowboys fanbase alarmed by tough offseason, NFL watchers not so much – Blogging The Boys
This ranking highlights one reason the Cowboys fan base may be overstating their disappointment this offseason. And it was the surprise to lose in the playoffs, in the first round, at home. The Cowboys’ offense last year was a monster in almost every way until it reached the inconsistent phase of the second half of the season. Even then, they were still able to score at times, but they just didn’t do it as consistently and effectively. The defense has remained solid most of the year. Last season’s arc, the blistering start followed by a lukewarm second half, capped by the hugely disappointing playoff loss, put the Cowboys fan base in a decidedly nasty mood. Then the Amari Cooper/Randy Gregory/La’el Collins situation was followed by very little outside activity in free agency, and that brought more negativity. And it’s justifiable, it’s hard to see so much talent go for next to nothing. But the outside world doesn’t seem to share that sentiment. At least it’s something.
Will Christian McCaffrey, Derrick Henry, Alvin Kamara, Ezekiel Elliott bounce back? What went wrong, 2022 statistical projections for every star – ESPN+
Based on how they performed in 2021, Pollard should be moved into the lead role. Will the Cowboys actually make this change? I’m skeptical. For one thing, the organization is paying Elliott like he’s a superstar. While it surely would have cut him this offseason if it had been financially feasible, Dallas is poised to pay him $12.4 million in 2022. He can walk away from his deal and save nearly $5 million in space. cap in 2023, and the decision not to restructure his contract this offseason hints at that likelihood next spring. If there’s one place Elliott excels, it’s in protecting this pass-happy offense and its quarterback. He is one of the best blocking backs in football, combining the prototypical size of a full-back with the bravery a full-back has to endure. Oddly, given how often the Cowboys throw first down these days, it might make more sense for him to be first down on first down before giving way to Pollard on second and third down. . Unless Pollard gets injured, we should see the Cowboys move towards more of a 50-50 split between the two in 2022. Elliott had just under 78% of touches in 2019, a rate that has fallen below 70% in 2020 before reaching just over 62% last season. An even split should make the Cowboys better and could even increase Elliott’s efficiency, although his days of competing for ground titles appear to be over.
NFL University #40: AFC Win Totals – The SB Nation NFL Show
Welcome to another edition of NFL University! Stephen Serda, Kyle Posey and Justis Mosqueda discuss the expected AFC win tally ahead of next season. The Bills, despite the AFC’s highest predicted win total at 11.5, feel like a lock to hit their top. The AFC North is hard to fully understand until we know more about Deshaun Watson, but the Bengals and Ravens should compete for the division. The Jaguars being projected more wins than the Texans is a trap to avoid – and the AFC West is a toss-up.
