Eagles running back LeSean McCoy got into the groove for his first triple-digit performance, just like I told you he would against the Giants. As a die-hard Eagles fan it was written in the sand. At one point 4-linemen went down.
Stud left tackle Jason Peters persevered through a couple scares himself, but Todd Herremans bounced back quickly and Lane Johnson returned to make his season debut from suspension. Still missing center Jason Kelce and left guard Evan Mathis, both elite hogs, the fill-ins simply got time to learn and gel with a few games of experience.
You want to keep or trade for Shady because he has a very favorable schedule. The line should be at full strength come weeks 9 and 10, yet Philly still leads the NFC in scoring.
The D has been better than the yards allowed suggests, and combined to score 4 touchdowns with the special teams unit to make this a tough team to beat in every aspect of the game. Shady will be involved when they’re in the game and when they’re playing with the lead, both have been common in the Chip Kelly
These next couple games, last year’s leading rusher should get extra touches, as backups Darren Sproles and Chris Polk are nursing injuries coming out of their week 7 bye. At this point, only Dallas’s DeMarco Murray has more carries than McCoy.
Buy Percy Harvin
The New York Jets went out and got Eric Decker, that’s worked out great so far. Now they trade for Percy Harvin and suddenly the Jets are thinking offensive. Geno Smith hasn’t been dealt a fair hand and that’s how it goes sometimes, but this gives him a boost to right the 1-6 ship.
Decker has been the featured receiver, Harvin will immediate make an impact as the other starter. New York needs his playmaking ability. I wouldn’t shoot for gadget plays so much as the Seahawks did. They need to treat him similarly to Decker, with a little more space to operate that’s all. Decker’s been given screens, intermediate routes, and deep balls, everything really. Harvin needs that same treatment, perhaps with a few more shots to him downfield. Even if for some reason, Michael Vick comes in to sling the ball around, he’s got the arm.
Harvin should be inserted on special teams as well, to lite a spark in a 1-win team that desperately needs Percy to be Percy. If they’re smart, every three plays should rotate between Chris Ivory, Decker, and Harvin. Then, you can think about sprinkling in Chris Johnson, rookie tight end Jace Amaro, and Jeremy Kerley in the slot. That comes after getting the best players involved, which Harvin instantly becomes for this undermanned offense.
