‘Something Has to Give’

ITB: Do Eagles Need to Make Major Changes?


While the Philadelphia Eagles own the league’s best record at 8-1, they are far from a finished product.

On the latest episode of “Inside The Birds,” Adam Caplan and Geoff Mosher provided intel on injuries and self-scouted the Eagles during their bye week.

James Bradberry

Eagles CB James Bradberry has been struggling in recent weeks

Nakobe Dean

Adam Caplan: “The new injury is a mid-foot sprain. It’s in the lisfranc area. We don’t know if it is a full-blown rupture. The crazy thing is it’s both feet.”

Geoff Mosher: “Both feet, in training camp he missed time with an ankle, it is illustrative of what we were told by personnel people coming out of the draft. There are some concerns about his wear and tear and size.”

Slot Cornerback

Caplan: “Bradley Roby said he is going to be back, but he is 31 years old and just came back from an injury. You can’t be safe enough when you are trying to make a Super Bowl run, why not have somebody in the pipeline?”

Jalen Hurts

Mosher: “I think he has done a really good job of something that he has improved upon from his first two weeks and that is getting the ball out quickly, finding the underneath guys, and seeing it when it is open.”

Caplan: “When you consider how bad that knee is, it’s tough. I think it’s really good to get him off his feet [in the bye week].”

Running Backs

Caplan: “The running back targets are way up this season, but let’s see the explosives. (D’Andre) Swift looked good and had a couple of really nice plays, let’s expand on that with the extra time that coaches have to go through the tape and figure out where the matchups can be.”


Caplan: “The two corners are 30 years and older, (Darius) Slay and (James) Bradberry. Could you give them 10 snaps off a game and get (Josh) Jobe or (Eli) Ricks out there? It’s something to look into because it is a long season.” 

Mosher: “In the Dallas game, they switched sides. Slay started playing over on the right side and James Bradberry was playing on the left matched up against Jalen Tolbert or Michael Gallup. They clearly said they needed Slay, who is playing better, against Brandin Cooks, a speed guy. That’s the first sign the coaches are starting to recognize that something has to give here with the way Bradberry has been playing.”
