Eagles News: Nick Sirianni tries to stop Jason Kelce from retiring

Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …

Sirianni on luring Kelce: ‘I sent him two kegs of beer’ – NBCSP
Despite playing through the pain, he hasn’t missed a game since 2014. But the 34-year-old Kelce plans to hang up his boots and make a career out of it. He said it after the season-ending loss to Tampa Bay. Eagles head coach Nick Siranni wants to delay the end of Kelce’s career in Philadelphia for at least a few more years. A guest on the Angelo Cataldi Show on Thursday morning, Sirianni was asked what steps he was taking to entice him to stay. “I sent him two kegs of beer yesterday. You know what, he’s awesome and I told him how much we want him back. He’s an incredible leader. Everything you hear about – if you don’t know Jason Kelce personally, everything you hear about him is as advertised. He’s great, he’s a great leader, he’s a great player.

Eagles All-22 movie review: Observations from the playoff loss to the Bucs – BGN
Next big, big step for Hurts: throwing with anticipation. This type of throws is enabled but he must release the ball earlier, especially without having an elite arm. If you saw Justin Herbert utterly destroy the Raiders’ defense in Week 18, almost every comeback was a laser and it was thrown before the receiver was out of his break. Hurts needs to improve in this area in order to take the next step. Whether or not he can do that probably determines his ceiling as a franchise quarterback.

2022 NFL Draft priorities for each team eliminated during wildcard weekend – PFF
Some of this is schematic for a unit that often sat in soft spots. No defense has played fewer snaps with at least one cornerback in media coverage in 2021 than the Eagles (432). A big contributor, however, is that Philadelphia just lacked impact players in the back of its defense beyond PFF All-Pro selection Darius Slay. Starting cornerback Steven Nelson enters free agency with safeties Rodney McLeod and Anthony Harris. Slay is 31 and Philadelphia has been looking to become a linebacker for years. The need for youngsters and playmakers on defense extends to the defensive line. Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham have been at the heart of this unit for a decade, but both are on the downward slope in their careers. The Eagles won’t be a perennial top-10 team with Hurts unless he shows major growth as a passer, but there are plenty of other areas outside of quarterback where Philadelphia needs to rejuvenate and add talent. Both Devin Lloyd and Nakobe Dean are going to be tied with Philadelphia this draft season, and either would be a needed presence in the middle of the Eagles’ defense that was lacking in 2021. Both recorded over 90s, 0 PFF ratings in their final college seasons. .

Building around a budding young core is a key focus this offseason – PE.com
It’s “construction mode” for the Philadelphia Eagles, a different offseason than 12 months ago. In this mode, deemed “transitional,” the Eagles racked up as many NFL draft assets as they could, wriggled out of a salary cap squeeze in an effort to rejuvenate the roster while competing for the playoffs at the same time. Mission accomplished.

Reasons Dallas Cowboys Offense Decreased In 2021 Season – Blogging The Boys
Here’s the bottom line, it was a complete meltdown across the board for everyone on the offense, Dak Prescott included. No one was playing at the level we witnessed before the bye, and maybe that pace was unsustainable in the first place. It was horribly bad for the starting 11 offensive players and the offensive coordinator. This is not to try to justify the poor performance of other contributors; again, the stall is inexcusable. However, the most apparent drop in performance came from the offensive line. This caused problems across the board and ultimately ended the Cowboys’ season. But that’s a far scarier proposition than suggesting that the problem is just Dak or Kellen Moore. As Cowboys fans know, building a dominant offensive line takes a lot of time and capital.

Connecting the dots: Which potential coaches are the Giants’ GM candidates connected to? – Large Blue View
The former Atlanta Falcons head coach and current Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator became the Giants’ first officially job-bound candidate when news broke Wednesday that the Giants had requested permission to interview Quinn for their job. of coach. Does that mean Quinn is the Giants’ best candidate? Absolutely not. This likely means Quinn’s name was on the shortlists of head coach candidates provided by Schoen, Poles and Peters. The Giants are the sixth team to request an interview with Quinn, who went 43-42 in six years with the Falcons, winning an NFC title and appearing in the playoffs twice in his five full seasons. It is impossible for the Giants to interview Quinn before a general manager is in place. Making a move now is likely the Giants’ way of making sure Quinn knows they’re interested before deciding to take another job. Quinn has previously interviewed the Denver Broncos.

Seven pending free agents Washington needs to re-sign – Hogs Haven
Re-sign WR/Specialist DeAndre Carter. Carter (28) was a complete surprise to most people following the team. Carter had the third-most snaps by Washington receivers in 2021 and had 24 catches for 296 yards and three touchdowns. However, Carter’s primary value to Washington was not his offensive production; it was his contributions to the task force. Carter had 16 punt returns for 134 yards and 36 kickoff returns for 904 yards and a touchdown, earning him a Pro Bowl bid as a backup. Washington will finally have stability with a return specialist if they can re-sign him.

Texans interview Josh McCown for head coaching job – PFT
Josh McCown was interviewed for the Texans head coach job on Thursday, 363 days after his initial interview. The Texans announced the interview. He also interviewed for the job last year when the Texans were looking for a full-time replacement for Bill O’Brien.

This reporter was hit by a car on live TV and continued to report – SB Nation
Tori Yorgey of WSAZ in Charleston was reporting severe weather in the area when a person driving apparently lost control of her vehicle and hit her. Now, I don’t know about you, but if I ever get hit by a car, I’ll swear like a sailor. Epic poems would be written over the invective coming out of my mouth, but Yorgey, like an absolute CHAMPION, continued. Not only did she casually mention that she had been hit by a car before in college, but she was quick to reassure the driver that she was fine and everything was fine. It was almost as if she was more concerned with the driver’s feelings than her own body… WHO WAS HIT BY A CAR
