Philly Girl's Phantasy Corner: Eagles After Week 9
« on: November 07, 2012, 08:29:41 PM »
What to make of the Philadelphia Eagles?


Is Reid's fate already determined? / Photo courtesy of USA Today

Where to start with this team! On offense we have a top RB in McCoy, a top WR in Jackson and a solid WR2 in Maclin (not to mention an underrated and under-utilized Avant) and a solid TE in Celek. As for QB, we have an extremely athletic Michael Vick, but athleticism doesn’t make one a great pocket passer; it actually makes him another running threat along with passing however Andy Reid strongly believes that he can change the qualities that have made Michael Vick, Michael Vick and force him to be a pocket passer. Speaking of a pocket passer, this would require an offensive line that is able to actually create and hold a pocket – of course it would also require healthy starters! Ironic that Reid was an offensive lineman! I think we can all agree that this offense is under performing at the expense of the O-line and the QB. However, I am not willing (despite my dislike of M. Vick as a QB for the Eagles) to blame this all on the QB when the failure to perform is in the strategy and coaching.

Now for the defense…I realize that we all miss the classic Jim Johnson defense. Last year was a disaster to put it politely but the beginning of this season the D finally seemed to be coming together with a few additions, including Ryans. To avoid getting too detailed with whole Juan Castillo debate my comments on this move are simple – we should question the original decision to move him into the role more than the decision to move him out. I was not a fan of the original move but I do not think the mid-season firing was justified given the turnover issues with the offense. Moving forward and on, I believe in our cornerbacks, defensive line, and even the linebackers this season. I think we have some concerns in the secondary which has limited our blitz package due to the potential of being beat deep, however, none of these issues should force the defense to take the fall for this season.

So who should? Andy Reid. His original decision to move Juan Castillo into the Defensive Coordinator position should be scrutinized and his untimely release as well. Then we have the offense in which he is determined to force a multiple threat QB to become a pocket passer; the lack of offensive line support (considering he was an O-lineman); and the extreme under-utilization of one of the top backs in the league. Oh and did I mention that he is responsible for the play calls? And what about the inability to figure out time management skills after 14 seasons as head coach? The criticism that Andy is receiving is justified, for the most part. Reid has almost built his own demise in Philly through multiple winning seasons without a Super Bowl and now a painful mediocre (aka losing for not making the playoffs) season last year which it is starting to appear likely will continue.

He has lost his edge and after 14 years, the “seven year itch” is now seven years more severe.  :judge: :soapbox:

Reid is done and I can't blame Eagles fans.  Win or go home.  I mean, learn how to save time outs and actually run the ball!

    Today at 02:20:27 AM
  • Brent: JMAC, check the scoring in NFLC.  I think I have it all accounted for now.  tackles for O players on ST should count, blocked kicks, punts, blk kicks and putns returned for TDs and return yards is all in there now.
    Today at 02:21:05 AM
  • Gilly: Have fun big guy, :)
    Today at 02:21:11 AM
  • Eric: Gilly, did you get attached to TMD in Fantrax
    Today at 02:22:39 AM
  • Brent: Gilly, I changed the scoring some in NFLC to account for players playing ST and return guys.
    Today at 02:23:13 AM
  • Gilly: Its all good Brent, whatever you gotta do bud
    Today at 02:23:37 AM
  • Gilly: yes i see it Eric

    Today at 02:25:17 AM
  • JMAC: are u still updating.brent? i saw pts a minute ago and I was 1 and 1 and.now.pts show me 0 and 2 etc. Are.they final yet?
    Today at 02:28:59 AM
  • Brent: I am still updating, but I think I have to fix something.
    Today at 02:29:47 AM
  • Brent: I had TDs separated, but when I add TDs to include return TDs, then it is doubling up since I already ahve in there for rushing, passing and receving.  I think I just need to remove them as separate and add just TDs.
    Today at 02:30:38 AM
  • JMAC: ya pts are skyrocketing lol
    Today at 02:33:09 AM
  • Eric: How can you add to the scoring after FA and the season has started?
    Today at 02:34:10 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, I fixed that.  I just removed the TDs separated out and went with just TDs.  I did leave BLK FG's returned for TDs and Blocked Punts returned for TDs, but I might check that as well
    Today at 02:34:22 AM
  • Brent: Just go into League Setup and click Scoring
    Today at 02:34:42 AM
  • JMAC: sad I.have 40 pts more.than 2nd.best team and.im 0 and.2. LOL
    Today at 02:35:21 AM
  • Eric: I mean, isnt that not fair to people who have made trades and FA with knowing this wasnt part of the setup. I am just curious is all.
    Today at 02:35:25 AM
  • JMAC: and now.will.lose again as I.am.playing atlanta , sad indeed
    Today at 02:35:52 AM
  • Brent: It's not going to change much, it is just giving credit to players that should've earned points.
    Today at 02:39:51 AM
  • Eric: Sounds good, just thought I would ask.
    Today at 02:41:36 AM
  • Brent: When something is wrong, it needs to be fixed.  I don't have a RC so I don't have to rely on other people's opinions on how to run the league.  If someone wanted to run a league they could've stepped up when this league was about to go under.  I also don't think many people will have a problem with it since it gives more of their players value.
    Today at 02:41:36 AM
  • JMAC: agreed Brent. It.woupdnt have any impact in FA as.it.was crazy anyways for marginal talent. This just balances everything.out and rewards all yards and.tds as it.should. Still screwed me with 2 losses yet im.highest scoring.team. Lol
    Today at 02:44:36 AM
  • Eric: No thats cool man. I know how you feel.
    Today at 02:44:38 AM
  • Scalious: I think it would have had an effect on FA
    Today at 02:46:49 AM
  • Brent: Not really, it's nothing drastic.
    Today at 02:47:49 AM
  • Scalious: No way I get Patton for what I did. Totally subjective. Agree to dis-agree
    Today at 02:48:50 AM
  • JMAC: all.the.elite talent.in.fa huh?? lol. Fa was a huge overpay as it was I cant.imagine return yards would have bolstered.fa bids
    Today at 02:49:54 AM
  • Scalious: Actually it would have. Because people were paying redicually amounts for marginal talents. Thats exactly why. Look it benifits the leagues. So its a good thing it was done
    Today at 02:51:34 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, it just gives depth players more value.  So, what I did was add some defensive stats to the offensive players so they get credit when playing ST, I added return yards at the same value as rushing and receiving yards, added hurries on defense and the combined FF and INT's for defense just so it combines the categories.
    Today at 02:51:45 AM
  • Brent: Now, for example.  Devin Hester has been a total beast this season for Atlanta, now it actually reflects that in NFLC.  That's just one example, but the slight changes might have gave players the value they deserve.
    Today at 02:53:23 AM
  • JMAC: its nice to.get tackles for.st as.that will enhance tweener players values now which is.reflective of.a real life roster as well
    Today at 02:58:00 AM
  • Brent: I wish that was easier to set up in Fantrax or it would've been in from the beginning.
    Today at 02:58:41 AM
  • Scalious: ^^^Yup...agreed
    Today at 02:58:44 AM
  • Brent: I like what hurries did for defensive players.  Hurries are a big part of the game as DE's, DTs, LBs, DBs all get them and they affect the play of QBs, giving them value makes sense.
    Today at 03:01:47 AM
  • Scalious: Looks  like FA is slowing down a bit. Do you know when you'll have the exention values laid out?
    Today at 03:10:59 AM
  • Brent: Maybe this weekend if I get some time.  It's just a matter of looking at each player on ProFSL to see their contract, then put them in excel and sort by salary.  It is just time consuming.
