Last week I told you that Bryce Brown was an exceptional one week fill-in. Well, folks, I am here to repent because I lied. The truth is he may just be a two week fill-in. LeSean McCoy is making extremely slow progress, and he may not play again this week. Honestly, the Philadelphia Eagles are out of the playoff hunt altogether. The team is in complete shambles. If coach Andy Reid hasn’t lost the clubhouse at this point, I wonder what the team looks like when he does. If you are a star like McCoy, I wonder what your incentive is to show up this week and play. I don’t see any point to risking your future on a collection of stiffs. It’s terrific to see every rookie that is on the Eagles roster playing together in what I see as a traveling carnival.
Foles has only thrown one touchdown in his last three games while throwing three interceptions. I hate to kick Philadelphia fans in the chops, but this is a rotting carcass that even the vultures are afraid to eat off of. And now Jason Babin was released in a movement to get the youth more playing time? At the end of the day, this business wanted to save some money on a player that wasn’t exactly with the program.
When Kendall Hunter went down last Sunday ending his season, it opened the door for one of three players. Brandon Jacobs, Anthony Dixon and LaMichael James will all be in line for carries. Jacobs has been patient and relatively quiet. He is an absolute load to bring down and will surprise you catching the ball out of the backfield. I would love to get a look at James, but believe Jacobs has the most value as he could vulture some goal line carries from Frank Gore. Pick up Jacobs because he will ultimately find himself in the end zone. If you are looking for volume of carries, you should probably look elsewhere. We are talking 8-10 carries at best.
Truth be told that the Broncos would much rather throw the ball than run it anyway. They need the run to keep defenses guessing a bit for Manning. Expect that last week’s surprise starter Moreno is the starting back until he breaks again. He has a long history with injuries. I would steer clear of this situation because it’s too much of a guessing game anyhow.
When Andre Brown went down with injury last week, we got a peek at David Wilson. I expect that experts will sing a different tune about Wilson after he gets loose. He is capable of taking it to the house on any play. That’s one hell of a 1-2 punch with Ahmad Bradshaw leading the way. Bradshaw will get some carries, but the Giants are weary of a full load due to Bradshaw’s long injury history. Expect Wilson to contribute immediately, and grab him if you can. Take a wait-and-see approach to see what his role is before plugging him in.
