in the books http://www.eaglescheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-chris-long-jersey , it’s time look at how various media outlets have ranked the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles in their NFL power rankings. It’s always interesting to see how the Eagles stack up from an outside perspective. But first, let’s start by revisiting mine.Bleeding Green Nation18 - Philadelphia Eagles - The Eagles came out flat in a game where their season was essentially on the line. Embarrassing. Hard to say the Eagles’ coaching staff is doing a great job this season. Injury issues aren’t helping, either. (LW: 11)SB Nation16 - The Eagles have offered up some small glimpses of hope this year, but then they do things like lose to the Cowboys at home on primetime television. Philly hasn’t had a convincing win this season; their biggest victory was defeating the 2-7 Giants by 24. Other than that, they’ve won two games by six points and one game by four points. Consider us unimpressed by the defending Super Bowl champs. (LW: 10)ESPN13 - Defining stat: 7. That’s the total number of takeaways they’ve generated, which is tied for 27th in the NFL with the Giants, Raiders and Ravens. Jim Schwartz’s unit has been able to limit scoring -- the Eagles rank sixth in opponent points per game (20.3) -- but the inability to force turnovers has Philly running at a minus-6 in the takeaway/giveaway department. (LW: 9)NFL.com19 - The season is not over in Philadelphia, although the Eagles really needed a win on Sunday night. The defense just couldn’t force a stop in the second half, failing to corral Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott at every turn. The Eagles made up for it by not covering. It’s a wonder how Philly’s defense ranked so well in scoring defense entering the game, because it sure hasn’t played like that brand of unit in several games. There was “Fitzmagic the Gathering” in Tampa in Week 2, the fourth-down disasters at Tennessee in Week 4, the myriad stumbles at home against the Vikings the following week and the three fourth-quarter touchdown marches by the Panthers in Week 7. Finally, there was letting the offensively stunted Cowboys move the ball at will in the second half the other night. Maybe if Carson Wentz doesn’t throw that fourth-down pass behind Zach Ertz, all that wouldn’t have mattered. But he did, and it does. (LW: 13)CBS Sports17 - They hardly look like the Super team from last year. They have to pick it up after losing to Dallas, but will be challenged on the road against the Saints to do that. (LW: 12)Pro Football Talk15 - Just when we thought they were in, they pushed themselves back out. (LW: 9)Yahoo! Sports15 - The Eagles haven’t looked right all season. The cluster injuries at cornerback are a concern, and I’m not sure how they overcome that this Sunday at the Saints. They probably need to pull some upsets if they’re going to make the playoffs. (LW: 9)Washington Post16 - So much for the notion that the Eagles were about to go on a second-half run to take control of the NFC East. The performance against the Cowboys wasn’t good at all. The offense simply can’t score enough points, and WR Golden Tate made little impact in his first game with the team. The Eagles play Sunday at New Orleans Cheap Jay Ajayi Jersey , not exactly a great place to try to get their issues worked out. (LW: 9)Bleacher Report14 - The Philadelphia Eagles—and their title defense—are officially in big trouble. It’s not solely a matter of the team’s seven-point home loss to the Cowboys, although that’s a big problem in and of itself. The Eagles have already lost two more games than all of last season, and Philly finds itself two games back of the Redskins in the NFC East. There are even bigger issues. The pass defense has become a serious liability, with top corner Ronald Darby going down against the Cowboys. The running game has all but been abandoned for a simple enough reason: The Eagles can’t run the ball with any consistency. Then there’s the schedule. My oh my, the schedule. Of the seven games the Eagles have left, five come against teams that are currently in first place, including two meetings with Washington and trips to L.A. and New Orleans to face the Rams and Saints. At this point, it looks like a long shot for Philly to even make the playoffs. (LW: 9)Sporting News15 - The Eagles are not running the ball well, having major defensive lapses and not winning at home. The only way they somewhat resemble the Super Bowl 52 champs is the play of Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz. (LW: 11)Pro Football Weekly12 - Worst nine-game start for defending champ in a decade. (LW: 9)Reddit16 - It’s time for Philadelphia to admit that this isn’t a good football team. Call it “Super Bowl Hangover” or “Offensive and Defensive Ineptitude”, the story is the same: 4-5, third place in the division, and 2 games behind the division-leading Redskins. The Eagles’ projected chance to make the playoffs plummeted below 30% following the humiliating loss...at home...to Dallas...on SNF.. (LW: 12)Mile High Report17 - Look, I get it, it’s a divisional game and the Cowboys play you tough. Its why you wouldn’t be dinged too harshly for barely winning AT HOME, but you didn’t. You lost! And not just the game, you lost your best CB for the year. Sorry Philly, this is likely as high as you get the rest of the year. (LW: 13)Sports Illustrated10 - No explanation (LW: 9)...AnalysisThe rankings range from as high as 10 to as low as 19. The most common rankings are 15 and 16. The average ranking is 15.1, which is down nearly five spots from last week’s average of 10.3.The Eagles are a mediocre football team. It’s that simple. What happens when you mix a spooked, unsure quarterback with an unimaginative offensive coordinator and a thinning offensive line? Those are the ingredients in the Dallas Cowboys’ cocktail and it’s a major problem. Making matters worse Cheap Cameron Johnston Jersey , the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles and their buzzsaw front four gets to exploit these weaknesses in front of a raucous home crowd under the bright lights of prime time football.I often make the case that the Eagles rack up pressures and hits but not sacks with the same frequency due to the opposing offenses’ gameplan. Per Pro Football Focus, Only one quarterback has had a time-to-throw slower than an average of 2.40 seconds against the Eagles’ defense. That quarterback was Blake Bortles (2.66). He was sacked four times.Fighting in the other corner, weighing in at a league leading 10.5% allowed sack rate, are thethe Cowboys. They’re battling with a number of issues along their offensive line that has led to that ballooning number.The last meaningful win for the Cowboys over the Eagles was Week 8 in 2016. Their starting lineup along the line, from left-to-right:Tyron Smith, Ronald Leary, Travis Frederick, Zack Martin, Doug FreeEntering their first matchup this year, the line-up will look something like:Tyron Smith, Xavier Su’a-Filo (?), Joe Looney, Zack Martin, La’el CollinsI count four downgrades: Free to Collins, Frederick to Looney, Leary to whoever, and Smith is two years older and beat up (still pretty doggone good though). That’s a far cry from what is often touted as one of the best units in the league. But not all of the blame can be placed on the shoulders of the offensive line.Dak Prescott is in the trenches of a mental war. He’s hesitant and seemingly hopeless under the weight of the pressure mounting up around him. His gun refuses to come out of its holster and he doesn’t trust anything. Prescott is the 37th slowest time-to-throw quarterback in the league, coming in at a sloth-like 2.83 seconds.Even with reinforcements arriving in the form of wide receiver Amari Cooper, Prescott’s average time-to-throw in the loss to the Tennessee Titans was still a slow 2.78. So how do you exploit this if you’re Jim Schwartz?Weeks ago I broke down a method that Schwartz uses when constructing his rush plan.When watching Prescott http://www.eaglescheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-brandon-graham-jersey , there’s a clear tendency. Against defensive line “games”, he will drop his eyes and dart into the space the opening action of the stunt creates. Amplifying the impact of this tendency is his footwork, which gets out of whack when he moves within the pocket. This leads to him not being ready to throw.I spoke about this with Mark Schofield on The QB Scho Show on the Bleeding Green Nation podcast network, you can listen to that here, and he also wrote about this flaw in Prescott’s game for Big Blue View.Simply put, Prescott invites pressure. Per Sports Info Solutions the Eagles are getting 30% hurries/sacks with four man rushes. They don’t need to blitz Prescott. They can stunt any which way, especially to his ball-hand side, and let him come to them like a moth to a flame.The other key to accumulating sacks is anticipating the weakside play-action boot and playing disciplined football against it. Last year in Week 11 Derek Barnett did this and it resulted in a sack. Teams that have a plan for that action have been able to get similar results.Schwartz shouldn’t shy away entirely from bringing the blitz though, as the Cowboys have shown some weakness in picking up delayed blitzes and defensive backs in pass protection. He had a creative rush plan that bore fruit against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8 and if it hits early for him, he might start to bring some serious heat.He also had some success overloading Bortles’ ball-hand side with blitzes, which the Jaguars also utilized against the Cowboys and Prescott.The best part for Schwartz is that he likely doesn’t have to do much of anything different with his coverage schemes. Yes, he can add cone brackets like he did against Odell Beckham Jr. to combat isolation concepts to Cooper, but Prescott has lost the battle against cover 1 and cover 3 this year. Per Sports Info Solutions, Prescott is 30th EPA per attempt and 35th in positive play rate (40%) against those staple Eagles’ coverage deployments.Unless Prescott and Cowboys’ offensive coordinator Scott Linehan change their stripes, which they couldn’t manage coming out of a bye against the Titans, this looks like a slam dunk for the defense. Cooper brings a new, enticing element, but on the whole Prescott is who he is and the Eagles front four is in a prime spot to take over the game.
