DeSean on Special Teams?
A little Lions and DeSean Jackson on special teams talk in this opening segment. Todd Ranck is clamoring for the Eagles to put DeSean Jackson back on punt return duties to just provide a spark of some sort. The coverage has been awful the last few games and with the Eagles being involved in so many close games, field position becomes vital.
Former All-Pro and Eagles FB Leonard Weaver called in at 2:30 for a Weaver Wednesday. Mike and Todd talk with Weaver about the fumble problems of Mike Vick and what he thinks as a former player when he sees Vick scramble out of the pocket, he says to "go back to the basics" and have Vick work with the running backs when they work on fumble drills. Weaver also says to give Vick an opportunity to change the protection schemes with a new offensive line:
Fine 5/Ugly 5
Wednesdays at 2:45 Mike Gill and Todd Ranck give their 5 best and 5 worst teams in the NFL:
At 3:05 we talk with Eagles 24/7 Sheil Kapadia about what he saw on the Eagles/Steelers game over the weekend. Kapadia says the Eagles special teams has been terrible, both on coverage and the return ability of Damaris Johnson and Brandon Boykin. Also, on the lack of sacks: the defensive line needs to play better, they did not provide much of a push at all on Sunday. Read more about Sheil Kapadia.
