Eagles Training Camp Training Notes: Defense wins the day while battling attack

Today marked the sixth Philadelphia Eagles Training camp before the 2022 NFL season. This is what I noticed in the NovaCare aggregator. Update: Today’s BGN Radio Training Feed Podcast is live!

Oh man, it was hot There today with temperatures approaching 100 degrees. Or at least it felt that way.

• This is very clear: No one can reasonably claim that today was a Hurts stock performance. The attack did not play well.

Hurt is not only blamed for struggles. In fairness to him, he was in the top two left fending options and was missing one of the best wide receivers.

But quarterbacks won’t always be surrounded by the perfect situation. Sometimes it is up to them to do more with less and overcome these adversities. The mischief did not rise for the occasion Thursday morning.

Let us summarize his practice based on the different periods in which he was involved.

1 over 1: Hurts pitched the ball to Quays Watkins on a fading hole but it was dropped and almost caught by Avonte Maddox until Watkins played defense to break it. Hurts threw a faint pass into the back left corner of the end zone that didn’t allow Watkins to get inside the bounds. Hurts came back and corrected his mistake with a faint pass into the back right corner of the end zone to find John Hightower.

11 in 11: Hurts held the ball long in his first reps. He would probably have been fired from one of those, if not both. He didn’t even complete the pass despite taking advantage of the extra time to throw. Hurts’ third throw down was a four-yard completion to Dallas Guedert. Three is out.

7 on 7: Hurts had a good ball over center (!) to slide AJ Brown into a tight window. The pass was thrown back a bit but perhaps the intent was to give Brown a chance to play while keeping the ball out of the defence. Hurts found Brown again in the middle of the field but this time in the back of the end zone for a score. It was those good plays that stood out. Bad plays include actors where Hurts didn’t see anything he liked and ran. Not so good when QB has to resort to his legs in a 7 on 7. Hurts was nearly picked up by TJ Edwards, but the judges in practice decided he was incomplete. Close.

11 in 11: Hurts received a good pass from a quick pass to Goedert from over the middle.

Red Zone 11-on-11: Hurts quickly got the ball to Brown in a slash to beat Darius Sly for a score.

Peak time from 11 to 11: Painfully attached to Brown on an outside road to allow the receiver out of bounds for a gain of 5 yards with 1:11 remaining on the clock. In second, Kenneth Jenwell dropped a short pass over the middle with the defenders nearby. In third, Javon Hargrave might have bagged a sack of Hurts in a real match but the quarterback took a run to the sideline for short wins. In fourth, Hurts held the ball long to the point where Josh Sweat stopped rushing to him and just stood there watching while the quarterback threw a high/away goal toward the left side. Hertz had another pass over the middle that Edwards knocked out.

After the practice, I asked several members of the media if they though Hurts had been hoarding, hoarding, or hoarding. Everyone agreed that stocking wasn’t an option. Some were between equals and downsides…although one of Hurts’ biggest supporters thought it was obvious. After reviewing my notes, the bad outweighed the good. So many times where he keeps the ball forever. It was a bit of a feast or famine for that matter with the ball going out too fast or taking all day to be thrown.

Eagle injury report: The Eagles added some notable names to the injury report.

not practiced: Defonta Smith (groin), Jordan Mailata (concussion), Andre Dillard (concussion), Greg Ward (ankle), Grant Calkatera (hamstring), McCain (knee).

Smith returned to practice on Tuesday after being knocked out but is out today. He describes The Eagles Smith as “day by day.”

Melata and Dillard are out so they can go through the NFL’s mandatory concussion protocol. Their absence left Le’Raven Clark when he left the Eagles’ first team.

Ward, Calkatera and McCain are all bubble players who need to recover soon in order to fight properly for positions on the roster.

Limited sharing: Zach Pascal (illness).

Pascal practiced for the first time since the camp opened. He was not involved in team training but did participate in 1-on-1s. intensify.

Quiz Watkins was full today after leaving Tuesday’s training early due to illness.

The Boston Scott was on the ground for a while after taking the big pop from Marcus Epps but was able to come out on his own.

Richard Rodgers was activated from the Active List/PUP on Wednesday evening. The depth of the tighter end of the practice, to say the least.

Taron Jackson seemed to prick his eye during one actor. We’ll see if he missed it at any point.

JJ Arcega-Whiteside and Deon Cain were both injured in training and did not return.

• While Hurts often hold the ball for a long time (there’s plenty of evidence he’s done the same with the longest average throw time over the past two seasons), let’s give some credit to the defense too. Covering up didn’t make life easy for him. And the lane did not rush either, which did not struggle to make his life difficult. The Eagles’ passing rush was very ineffective last year; Good to see improvement this summer.

• TJ Edwards is having a strong summer. One of his passes broke up almost as an interception. Edwards also did a good job diagnosing a short throw to Goedert to stop the attack in order to gain 2 yards through a goal streak. Some believe Edwards could head to the bench with the Eagles signing Keizer White and Nacube Dean appointed. This does not happen. Edwards is the best player on the team.

• Speaking of Dean, still waiting to flash through six practices.

• Gainwell’s fall towards the end of practice was bad. But he had a nice catch over the shoulder in 1-on-1. He also went a good center distance for about 10 yards. The brave goal-line has been trusted with the first team’s attack to be relegated.

• AJ Brown was partying on Darius Slay this summer. Brown rigged a path out with a release within one rep before quickly cutting inside and scoring a touchdown on a slash. Brown was a slasher machine.

• Kary Vincent Jr. has been flagged. For entering a defensive pass on Devon Allen in a 1v1 match. KVJ was also hit by Covey on a corner road for a touchdown from Reid Sinnett during red zone drills.

• Not a bad day for Kofi. In addition to the aforementioned touchdown, he got another hit after fighting a path to open against Josiah Scott in the 11-on-11 red zone.

• Today may have been Gardner Minciu’s best practice in the camp. It was more solid than excited. Minshew was the pitcher for the Covey 1-on-1 landing; The ball is pulled by Scott. Minshew reached out to Noah Togiai on a fading path with Jaquiski Tartt trailing. Minshew knocked out Zach Pascal poorly at 1-on-1 rep.

• It was a very quiet camp for seasoned safety experts Tart and Anthony Harris.

• Brandon Graham continues to look good. Mincho prevented a pass by hitting the quarterback.

• Haason Reddick was in a position to take Miles Sanders for a lose or no win in play as Hurts’ option was running backwards. The same could be said for the field option on the other side of the field (left) with Davion Taylor preparing to finish off the Boston Scott.

• There was an earlier day at camp where Quays Watkins was sculpting Avonte Maddox in a 1 on 1. Today it was Maddox who got the best of that fight as the pick and break loomed. True sticky coverage from the corner of the eagles hatch.

• Devon Allen dropped a pass at 1-on-1. His hands were a problem this summer.

• Galen Regor beat James Bradbury 1-1. Later in practice, Nick Siriani yelled at him during a rep as they acted as a cover ‘sack’.

• Red Sennett gave Jedan Graham a good shot in the middle of the end zone. He’ll be interested to see what Sinnett can do in pre-season because he’s going to get a lot of shots there. He will have a chance to defend the cause of the Eagles who keep three midfielders.

• Carson Strong is not seriously pushing for a place on the list at the moment. He threw a duck in double coverage and was lucky it wasn’t picked up.

• Reed Blankenship continues to stand out among the three correspondents. Do good things in coverage and running support. At least he’ll be on the coaching team.

• Scenes from the camp: security exercises with the ball.

I had the pleasure of meeting the only person Hooji Dome In practice today. If you haven’t already devoured one of his creations, you really are missing out. elite.
