Eagles rolling after lopsided preseason wins (The Associated Press)

Friday, 28 August 2015
The Philadelphia Eagles have outscored two AFC playoff teams 76-27 in a pair of routs, but neither the Indianapolis Colts nor the Baltimore Ravens prepared a game plan to face Chip Kelly's offense. ''The tempo of the offense was tough and that's something that we hadn't prepared for,'' Ravens coach John Harbaugh said following Saturday's 40-17 loss. If we were playing in the third preseason game, we'd probably prepare for it.

Tim Tebow comes in fourth for Eagles, doesn't play too much (Shutdown Corner)
User Rating: / 0
Friday, 28 August 2015
For all of the recent positive stories about Tim Tebow’s chances of making the Philadelphia Eagles, coach Chip Kelly played him as the fourth quarterback on Saturday night, and time is running out in the preseason for Tebow to make a grand impression. Tebow came in after Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley took their snaps in a 40-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens. Tebow entered the game in the fourth quarter, and didn’t get many plays to make an impression one way or another. The Eagles have played two preseason games, and the third preseason game is traditionally the one in which starters play the most, so there's a good chance Tebow won't see any game action next week. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league todayl ] Tebow might have done enough in practice to make up Kelly’s mind about whether he'll make the 53-man roster, and maybe the Eagles were auditioning Barkley for a trade. But teams don’t generally keep four quarterbacks and in both games Tebow has been the fourth one in. Tebow didn’t have much of a chance to do anything one way or another on Saturday night. First, the good: Tebow can run as well as any quarterback in the NFL, and he got a huge gain on a zone-read option. The defensive end crashed down, and Tebow kept the ball and ran through the defense for a 26-yard gain. If Tebow would get a chance to play for the Eagles in the regular season, there’s no doubt the read-option would be very tough to defend. Tebow is known for his running ability, but he has obviously been told he needs to develop as a pocket passer. So on a third-down play on his first drive, he stayed in the pocket … and stayed … and stayed … and was finally sacked for a 12-yard loss. He was bailed out by an illegal contact penalty on the defense. On Tebow's third drive, he kept a read-option, ran to his left and appeared to lunge into the end zone for what looked like a rushing touchdown. He passed up throwing to a wide-open receiver running along the back line of the end zone to try to run it in, and a replay review showed Tebow was out of bounds just short of the end zone. He should have passed it for an easy touchdown, and that's the type of play critics will point to when they debate his ability to stick in the NFL as a quarterback. Running back Raheem Mostert ran in for a 1-yard touchdown on the next play. Tebow didn’t have a ton of opportunities to pass the ball. On his second drive he hit the running back on a check-down pass for an 8-yard run after his 26-yard run. At the end of that drive, he rolled to his left after being pressured, and it appeared he expected his receiver to break deep to the back of the end zone. His intended receiver didn’t do that and Tebow’s third-down throw sailed high out of the back of the end zone. The Eagles got the ball back with less than a minute to go, and instead of taking a knee right away they dialed up a receiver screen, which Tebow completed for the last play of the game. Tebow was 2-of-5 for 13 passing yards, and had 31 rushing yards on three attempts. There is plenty of interest in Tebow this preseason, but Saturday night didn't tell us much about his chances of making the Eagles. He might not get a chance next week either. - - - - - - - Frank Schwab is the editor of Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

Eagles lineman: Terrell Suggs 'planned' dirty hit on Sam Bradford's knee (Shutdown Corner)
User Rating: / 0
Thursday, 27 August 2015
Philadelphia Eagles left tackle Jason Peters told NFL Network's Albert Breer he felt that the hit of Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs on Eagles QB Sam Bradford was intentional and dirty. Eagles LT Jason Peters asked if he thought Terrell Suggs' hit on Sam Bradford was dirty: "I think so. ... I think he planned it." — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) August 23, 2015 Bradford, who has suffered season-ending ACL injuries each of the past two seasons, was making his debut with the Eagles Saturday night. He took a shot on a read-option play in which Bradford handed off to Darren Sproles, and Suggs came low at Bradford's surgically repaired knee. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] Suggs was flagged 15 yards for roughing the passer on the play. Not surprisingly, Suggs didn't see any problem with him going after a potential ball career, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Elway says rest will be good for Manning - eventually (The Associated Press)
User Rating: / 0
Thursday, 27 August 2015
The long-term benefit of getting Peyton Manning so much rest this summer is that he should be fresher in December. With longtime apprentice Brock Osweiler getting so many snaps this summer, Manning's work has been curtailed and the quarterback who has long despised taking a day - or even a play - off, was 8 for 15 for 52 yards in his preseason debut last week. ''Well, maybe it's not what he's used to,'' general manager John Elway said Thursday.

Quarterback Sam Bradford would embrace the chance to play deeper in the Eagles' third exhibition game in Green Bay on Saturday. ''Start with the weather,'' Kelly said, noting the potential of rain in Wisconsin. The No. 1 overall draft pick from 2011 tore his left ACL twice in a 10-month span before coming to the Eagles in a trade from St. Louis.

Mad Dash: NFL fanbases' favorite musical acts revealed (NBC on Yahoo Sports)
User Rating: / 0
Thursday, 27 August 2015
If you had to guess what music most fans of your favorite team like, would you know the answer? What about rival teams' fans? Thanks to our friends at For The Win, we were alerted to the fact that StubHub attempted to pair up fanbases with musical artists , based on which events they bought the most tickets to attend. The answers in some cases weren't all that surprising, but some were true head scratchers. We weren't at all surprised by Houston Texans fans loving Kenny Chesney or Detroit Lions fans throwing down for Kid Rock. On the other hand, who knew Philadelphia Eagles fans love Maroon 5, or Jacksonville Jaguars fans were all about Elton John? And why does everyone (the Rams, Vikings and Colts) love Ed Sheeran so much? That's not a criticism, we're really just curious. The full list is pretty fascinating if you have the time.  Russell Westbrook really loves Taylor Swift. How much? He's posted videos of himself jamming to her songs in the past , and this week he was back at it, but with video from a concert he attended . We particularly like when he lifts the camera to suggest the crowd join him in singing along, as if they weren't already.  The new Madden 16 is out, and the reviews are in: It's pretty awesome, except for those random glitches that turn it into a haunted football game . Invisible players sacking quarterbacks, or intercepting the ball and returning it for a score is one spooky error. Another disturbing surprise is Aaron Rodgers not having eyeballs, just hollow sockets. There's a patch available now to fix the glitches, but hey, keep it this way if you like your football extra creepy. - - - - - - - The Yahoo Sports Mad Dash is a roundup of the morning's trending stories from across the sports landscape.

Injured Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari has missed the last two weeks of practice, but he plans to take his usual spot up front once the regular season begins. The team has termed Bakhtiari's injury as knee soreness. It appears unlikely that the guy who protects MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers' blind side will play in the third preseason game, on Saturday against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lambeau Field.

Program says safety, but Bucannon more of a linebacker (The Associated Press)

Wednesday, 26 August 2015
When the Arizona Cardinals selected Deone Bucannon in the first round of the 2014 draft, they envisioned a hard-hitting safety prowling the secondary. ''He's big, strong, fast,'' coach Bruce Arians said, ''can cover backs, can cover tight ends. At first, Bucannon didn't like the idea of being moved up to a middle linebacker spot to take advantage of his athleticism and speed.

Broncos add G Evan Mathis, who says he passed bigger deal elsewhere (Shutdown Corner)
User Rating: / 0
Tuesday, 25 August 2015
Evan Mathis was scheduled to make $5.5 million from the Philadelphia Eagles this year, and $6 million next season. He complained about his contract situation, got cut and didn't see any of those base salaries. Mathis ended up costing himself a lot of money, though he insists he turned down a $5.5 million deal to play for a contender for less money. Mathis agreed to a one-year deal with the Denver Broncos on Tuesday, and it's for $2.5 million. He can make up to $4 million if he hits certain playing time bonuses, according to 9News' Mike Klis . NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said that Mathis turned down a $5.5 million deal with another team so he could play with a contender, though Mathis' agent Drew Rosenhaus also tried saying the Oakland Raiders were interested in defensive end Greg Hardy as he tried to get Hardy a deal, and Raiders owner Mark Davis strongly denied that . Mathis himself said on Twitter that he turned down a $5.5 million deal. Mathis deleted that tweet . Theoretically Mathis could make up the money in free agency next year, though he'll turn 34 during this season. Mathis previously said that he doesn't regret asking the Eagles to add incentives to his deal, and he doesn't know if his complaints were the reason he was cut. He thinks he might have just made too much money for a guard in Chip Kelly's plans. Kelly said the decision was just based on money. Despite the pay cut, Mathis ends up in a good situation. The Broncos needed offensive line help, and Mathis provides that instantly. He's a great fit for the Broncos and new coach Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking scheme. The match seemed inevitable, though presumably Mathis was waiting to see if he could get a larger deal elsewhere. With the Broncos, Mathis lands on a team that has won four straight division titles and should be a serious contender in the AFC again. It's a nice pickup for the Broncos and a good spot for Mathis. It's just for significantly less than he was going to make on his previous job, even if he claims that was a voluntary decision. - - - - - - - Frank Schwab is the editor of Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.
