Additionally, I don't think enough credit is given to the significant leap in coaching that has take place from Gruden/Manusky to Rivera/Del Rio. Whereas Manusky seemed to barely tap the talent he had, I firmly believe JDR is going to get the most out of every player. Also, I think (but am not certain) RR is a much better game manager than Gruden - but, that's not setting the bar very high.

Remember one of JDR's first comments? The D had some talent but wasn't communicating. Reporter's (particularly J. Keim) have commented on this in the past. This year, players are gonna talk and play as a team. I expect a HUGE jump in the D's performance. I fully expect a lot fewer big plays based on miscommunication in the secondary. On top of that, they have the guys to rush the passer and jam the line.

For me, Haskins is the question mark and his progress will make or break the season. Rivera said he wanted the QB's to know their progressions and wasn't worried about accuracy. I get that, but Haskins accuracy HAS to improve. He left a lot of points on the board and threw a lot of picks just based on his inability to CONSISTENTLY make an accurate throw. If he fixes that, the sky's the limit.

Philly just doesn't impress me. They were a 9-7 team last year. They have solid but not spectacular coaching. Wentz is a good QB who can be streaky great. He also, however, puts the ball on the ground.

Chase Young is going to have an LT-like debut. They just won't be ready for him.

Philly is going to lose by a convincing amount. Most of the 4th quarter will be spent with WFT fans thinking "Well, how are they going to blow this?" ... and then they won't. They will play solid football (as solid as they can giving the lack of preseason, etc.) from beginning to end.
Stick around Joe

Agree

We will see how it plays out.

Resident curmudgeon here.

I agree .... but we went 0-6 against that not very impressive division.

Our O line sucks.

Our secondary was very bad last year and it appears on paper may have gotten worse, definitely didnt get upgraded.

New coaches, new everything.

Antonio Gibson carried the ball 33 times last year with Memphis. He's 6" and 230 lbs soaking wet.

Our starting RB (barber) has been an UFA journeymen on different practice squads.



have we named a starting LT yet?

Re: Week 1: Let's Go!!!!

Our coaching cost us 16 games last year. That includes winning in spite of our coaching staff. That alone is an upgrade to an 8-8 record throw in Skins records in funky years and we are SB bound!!!

Re: Week 1: Let's Go!!!!

Eagles have very little game film to prepare for.
I give the FTFKATR the advantage.

The Eagles destroy WFT and Haskins looks like a rookie.

Phil 35
WFT 0

Re: Week 1: Let's Go!!!!

The last few years, I just was not into the Skins' with the fanaticism I up threw RGIII's sophomore year. That one just broke me. After that, sure, they did some good things but the Bruce Allen experiment was an absolute failure, and I just didn't care.

The stories from the post, the hiring of Rivera, JDR, Jason Wright, and Julia Donaldson (fyi - I love the Jason Wright hiring as the most under the radar improvement. He and Rivera will straighten all the off-field crap up and run the team like pros rather than frat boys), all these things look to me like they are having a transformative effect on the team.

Time will tell, but I firmly believe that pros are running the show now and that they are not going to put up with the horse shit that went on in the past. With all the issues surrounding him, I think Snyder lets his hires do their job and just stays the fuck out while the NFL sorts out the allegations against him.

I am actually excited for WFT football again. It's been a long time.

Re: Week 1: Let's Go!!!!

Interesting depth chart released today by the Skins

JD Mck starter at RB...and the LB lineup is a surprise. SDH is starter over Thomas, KLP is a starter at weak side. Cole listed as a MLB behind bostic

Re: Week 1: Let's Go!!!!

I think WFT stands a better change then that to sneak one away from Philly.

Alshon Jeffery stands a good chance of missing the first month of the season as he recovers from foot surgery. DeSean Jackson has passed the stage where he can be trusted to stay on the field. First-round pick Jalen Reagor is sidelined after suffering a slight tear in his shoulder in the last week of camp. It will be J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward to allow Carson Wentz to make this offense go.

Who they got at LT? The front 7 of WFT can wreak havoc. I think this game is closer than everyone thinks.
