    Ranking all 32 NFL teams’ pass-rush units after Week 6 – PFFTeam Pass-Rush Grade: 85.9. Team Pressure Percentage: 42% (1st). Team Pressure Percentage when Blitzing: 50.0% (25th). Top Pass-Rusher (Pass-Rush Grade): DI Fletcher Cox (91.1).Jim Schwartz’s plan for Cam Newton – BGNHow do you plan to deploy a pass rush against a mobile quarterback? Do you contain on both sides? Do you add a spy to keep tabs for the entire game or in key situations? What if your data presents a different picture? What if it says you don’t need to do any of that? For Super Bowl Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz http://www.authenticsphiladelphiaeagles.com/cheap-brandon-brooks-jersey , devising his rush plan starts with the quarterback, not the offensive line. He detailed this philosophy in a 2015 C.O.O.L. (Coaches of Offensive Linemen) Clinic.A look ahead to the Eagles’ 2019 salary cap – PhillyVoiceIf the Eagles opted not to pick up Nick Foles’ option in 2019, or if they traded him, that would get them back under the cap immediately. That decision will seemingly be a no-brainer, particularly if the team views Nate Sudfeld as a legitimate No. 2 quarterback behind Carson Wentz. I believe they already do, and will even more so by 2019. Foles leaving would net almost $19 million in savings.Still Shuffling – Iggles BlitzDoes Darren Sproles have the worst hamstring injury in history? Yikes. You wonder if the Eagles should just sit him until after the bye week. If he’s not healthy by then, do you just give him the Old Yeller treatment? Sproles has been a terrific player for a long time and I hate that his final season has gone like this. It would be great if he could get healthy and help the team with some big plays down the stretch.How Jordan Mailata has already inspired the next crop of NFL hopefuls Down Under – ESPNAs Australia’s Jordan Mailata awaits a maiden NFL start, his amazing story has already inspired the next crop of athletes Down Under to pursue a career in American football. Mailata is reportedly edging closer to a first regular season game for Philadelphia Eagles, after first heading to Los Angeles for a workout last November. From there, the Aussie was invited to train at the IMG Academy in Florida, before the Eagles came calling with their final pick of the 2018 NFL Draft back in April.NFL Forecast – RotogrindersCAR @ PHI – 15mph sustained winds with stronger gusts, impact to deeper throws and kicks.Torrey Smith’s homecoming game couldn’t come at a better time – Cat Scratch ReaderHe’s been a great addition to the Panthers, indeed. His leadership ability has shown with the younger receivers. Although it’s been a quiet season for the 29-year old, that’s not entirely his fault. Smith’s longest catch of the season was a 26-yarder against Atlanta in Week 2. The Panthers only have two completions for 20+ yards so far, which puts them last in the league. Adjusting to first year Norv Turner’s offense, Carolina simply hasn’t had many opportunities. But as the season progresses, Turner says they’re working on having a complete passing game and creating explosive plays.Off The Beat: Jerseys? Sure! – PE.comUpon researching the Eagles’ uniform trends, I was surprised to find that the Eagles have worn their standard road uniforms (white jerseys, green pants) just once since January 1, 2017. White-on-green was the uniform combo for Nick Foles’ first start of 2017, when the Eagles defeated the Giants 34-29.Get ready to see Eagles’ little-known DT Treyvon Hester take a bigger role – NBCSPDoug Pederson said Friday defensive tackle Treyvon Hester is “definitely going to be asked to do a little bit more this week” against the Panthers. Based on Hester’s performance last week, that’s a good thing. The Eagles added the 26-year-old defensive tackle to their practice squad in early September and promoted him to the active roster less than a month later. With Haloti Ngata’s lingering calf injury and Tim Jernigan’s return in question Youth Dallas Goedert Jersey , the Eagles are probably going to ask more of Hester going forward. “Treyvon is an explosive player,” defensive line coach Chris Wilson said. “He has some similarities to Tim Jernigan in regards to how twitchy he is on the backside. A lot of times, Fletcher Cox gets a lot of attention and [Hester] has the ability to win some 1-on-1s. We need that.”Who are the best Eagles players of the last 25 years? – Press of ACI’ve seen a few things in the last 25 years of covering the Eagles. There were good teams (2017, 2004) and bad (1998, 2012). The same holds true for coaches. Andy Reid was good. Rich Kotite and Chip Kelly were bad. Ray Rhodes was a mixture of both, but also my favorite Eagles coach because of his honesty and colorful way of explaining situations, even if that color was blue. Reid had the most sustained success, reaching five NFC championship games and a Super Bowl during his 14-year tenure. But Doug Pederson’s the only one to win a championship, so he goes to the top of the list. Here’s my choices for the top players at each position over the last 25 years. I’m sure you’ll disagree on a few, but there really aren’t any wrong answers.FANPULSE – Redskin & Cowboy fans both predicting victory; somebody has to be wrong – Hogs HavenThe Cowboys have lost to 3 teams this season – the Panthers, Seahawks and Texans. All three teams are ranked in the top-11 in the NFL in Points Allowed per game. The Redskins rank 8th, ahead of both the Panthers and Texans. The Redskins have beaten 3 teams this season — the Cardinals, Panthers and Packers. All three teams are in the bottom half of the league in Points Scored per game. The Cowboys rank 26th, below both the Panthers and Packers.The Four Must-See Matchups for NFL Week 7 – The RingerA matchup between the NFL’s no. 1 scoring offense and no. 1 scoring defense pits Drew Brees’s enduring excellence against the Ravens’ miserly defense.

The top five and bottom five aren’t likely to change much week to week, so I’ll give you the changes and highlight the units that are pointing up and pointing down. Let’s begin.

    Adam Thielen had his way with the Philadelphia Eagles defense on Sunday. Need to move the sticks on a 3rd and 1? Short pass outside to Thielen for 3 yards. Need a big statement coming out of halftime? Long pass to Thielen for 68 yards. Short passes with lots of yards after the catch kept the Vikings on the field all day long. Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz hasn’t seem too phased by some of the struggles through the first quarter of the season, but it became obvious on Sunday that unless some MAKES A TACKLE, offenses are going to eat them alive.Schwartz talked to reporters on Tuesday about some of the concerns they have and how they plan to improve as the head into division play.Here’s what the defensive coordinator had to say:On Michael Bennett’s penaltySchwartz called it a really unfortunate play, and noted that they try and coach the guys to stay within the strike box, but sometimes they get knocked off their feet or what have you and that’s not always possible.He continued that whether Bennett forcibly knocked Cousins off his feet is a judgement call, and Michael Bennett was trying to do the right thing, but Schwartz knows that it was a critical call in that game. He noted that you don’t always get the call in your favor and you just have to deal with it.You could tell that Schwartz was holding back some colorful words on his true feelings about these types of penalties, but he echoed what he has all season: It’s not their job to officiate, it’s up to them to play to the officiant.But for the most part, he said, the Eagles have avoided some of those questionable calls compared to other teams in the league, but this one “bit us”.On rookie Avonte MaddoxSchwartz said that the rookie brought some energy to the field and shows great range in his play style. He emphasized what he said last week, that playing nickel for the Eagles is pretty similar to playing safety.He also noted that when Corey Graham got hurt against the Vikings it changed the dynamic for how much Maddox would play, but that he was up for the challenge. Schwartz also said that if the end of the game had gone differently, we might be pointing at his big play in the open field earlier in the day as keeping four points off the board.Making that stop and controlling the situation was a sign for Schwartz of good things to come from Avonte.Schwartz was also asked what the rookie’s ceiling looks like and if they would consider keeping him at safety moving forward. The DC noted that Maddox isn’t the ideal size for the position, but he is the ideal quickness and range, and having that dual skillset is invaluable.“The things we liked from him as a nickel we also like from him as a safety,” Schwartz continued. “We’ll see going forward, I mean that’s where we are right now.”On Jalen MillsSchwartz was asked about Mills performance on Sunday, and the defensive coordinator continued to support his corner. He noted that Jalen has made a lot of plays for the Eagles, including against the Vikings. Schwartz specifically pointed out the first third-down stop, where Mills gets his hands on the ball and played great technique.Schwartz also took the blame for the big play he gave up Youth Alshon Jeffery Jersey , saying “I’d put that more on me than him”.He noted that he put Mills on a big island and were being aggressive, but it didn’t work out.He continued to talk about how that’s just the nature of the position, occasionally you’re going to get beat, but Schwartz felt like Mills bounced back from that play and battled. The defensive coordinator also pointed out that corner is the one position that people are going to see each and every mistake. Schwartz admitted that mistakes from linebacker or linemen might not be as noticeable to viewers, but when the corner whiffs, it’s there for everyone to see and they can’t hide it.“That’s just the hat those guys wear, and they can’t lose confidence because they gave up a play.”Schwartz was then asked if Mills needs to do a better job keeping his emotions in check — seemingly addressing his back and forth with the Vikings receiver, and then Fletcher Cox — but the DC didn’t bite. He said it’s a competitive game and you want players who are fully invested and energized.If anything, he said he likes that Mills was combative and pushed back. Schwartz pointed out that the last thing you want is a corner that is shell-shocked and “Jalen’s never been that way”.He was asked again to detail Mills’ specific performance against the Vikings, but Schwartz quipped that he doesn’t do that in front of the media — as we all know. Bottom line, he thinks Mills played with good technique, and some of the calls were on Schwartz for being too aggressive in some situations.On defensive schemeSchwartz agreed that the problem wasn’t so much Kirk Cousins getting the ball out so quick on Sunday, but rather the yards after the catch that became the real issue. He said there’s some scheme-type stuff that he can help the guys with, but that it’s limiting the yards after catch that is the real priority.He continued to point out that most of the catches were on short-yard passes, but the runs they were making afterward were killer. Schwartz did say that later in the game he was happy with some of the adjustments they made, resulting in a few nice stops on the sideline.“We have to be a good tackling team,” Schwartz emphasized.Related to that, he said that’ll be a big sticking point as the prepare to face guys like Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley. Schwartz noted that Barkley isn’t your typical receiver, but he gets a lot of short passes and is able to really make the most of his room after the catch.
