Not sure how I feel about Diggs playing this week. Obviously it's great when he's in the lineup but if he sits, he'll effectively have had a month to recuperate. I'd hate for him to have this bother him the whole year because he rushed back.


I was thinking the same thing!! I dont understand why he would come back this week. It's a game we dont need him in and like you said, he'll get two more weeks off. However, he really needs to start figuring this groin thing out. He had the same issue last year

He practiced in full today. I get resting him but he might be 100%. He said this one was not nearly as severe as last year's. They also may limit his reps, too. If he's fully healthy, the only reason why I'd sit him is if the field is trash. Maybe not give him the full compliment of snaps.

This would be a great opportunity to give him limited snaps even if he's only 80% and see how he responds.

This isn't a dirty team, is there anyone outside of Wisconsin that believes it was a dirty hit? Obviously not the NFL. Seriously, get over it.

Per RapSheet, Teddy is expected to come off PUP this week and compete for the starting job.

We need him. ASAP. As long as he is 100%. Or Sam, if he's 100%. Had enough Case for this year, he almost gives me a heart attack when he goes back to throw, even though he doesnt turn it over.

He's also only been sacked 4 times all year. He is light years ahead of teddy as far as pocket presence. But I agree, we need either teddy or Sam... But only if wither are 100%.

Are you KIDDING me? Teddy's pocket presence was one of the tops in the league. He's so cool, especially being pressured on every other throw. Seriously, Google Teddy vs. blitz or pressure.

All I remember is him running away all the time rather than trying to complete a play down field. Idk.

Because he was being pressured a decade-high rates. OMG. By this time in 2015 Clemmings had allowed dozens of pressures and multiple sacks. Reiff has YET to allow a sack this season. Not to mention other offensive line improvements. His scrambling was by necessity. Seriously, Google it.

Well we will likely see what happened behind this improved OL.

I thought he was referring to how long Teddy holds the ball in the pocket. Under pressure, you couldnt ask for better. But there were a lot of times he held onto it too long. That was another reason why I would prefer Bradford over Teddy because his release and sense to get it out quick was way better than Teddy's

It was both. To be fair, and to DPs point, the OL is very much different and improved this season. I wl would be very interesting to see what teddy could do with this OL.

Interesting.

Vikings waived WR Rodney Adams and some center they signed late last week.

Eagles traded for Jay Ajayi this morning, this is not going to help our chances to grab that #1 seed.

Just saw that. I'll tell you what, I've lost a lot of respect for Adam Gase. He calls the damn offense and has done nothing but publicly call his players out when they dont perform. And what bothers me most with him is that the only reason anyone knows who he is is because of Peyton Manning. He takes zero blame on how poor their offense is then just dumps Ajayi. And might be trading Landry. Guy needs to be fired.

Still a lot of season left. Eagles look amazing right now, but we have seen how quickly a season can evaporate.

All we can do is support our team and hope for the best. It's been a fun season and I am hoping to our continued success.

Philly looked great last year too, then Wentz fell off. I have not seen anything from them that makes me feel they are unbeatable.

Think the Eagles have mostly played cupcakes so far. The meat of their season is coming up. And as well the Vikings have an important stretch. Compelling football.
Price of admission pays for the whole seat but you'll only need the edge.

Per Spielman, team won't make a decision on Teddy until the deadline (next Wed). Will consult Teddy's doctor, medical staff, Zimmer.

If that's the case, I wouldn't expect him to start right out of the bye IF he's activated.

My best guess is that his first start will be the Rams game. If for no other reason than the mental aspect of playing in front of the home fans instead of in a hostile road environment. This has been my prediction since he started practicing. Just imagine how big of a pop he'll get when they announce the starting QB. As if the Bank isn't already loud.

I'd want to go just for that alone. It would go CRAZY.

I have tickets to that game already (granted I ended up with tickets to 5 games this year), but the fact that I'll be there is the main reason I want it to happen.

Yeah him coming back vs. the Rams is definitely a good possibility. I highly doubt we see Keenum start vs both Washington AND LA

My question is will teddy get "hit" at all during practice? It will be hard for him to get used to being tackled again, I would think.
