After a humiliating and embarrassing week one loss, we are back in the classroom for another lesson. I have no doubts that the team will bounce back. With all of the players back from injury, only good things can happen! I also have zero doubts that Carson and Doug will have a bounce-back game! So for those clamoring to fire Doug or to bench Carson for Jalen Hurts, this game Isn’t for you. So let’s get started on this week’s lesson as The Professor’s top ten begins!
1.Doug Pederson owns Sean McVay. For all the praising and jumping over backward for McVay, there’s one thing he can’t do. Beat Doug Pederson. Doug is 2-0 against him. Not to mention he has more playoff wins and a Super Bowl ring. Doug also used a back up to beat him both times! McVay is a sexy new car that can’t keep it together. Doug is the reliable old pick up you can drive all year round. I’ll take Doug any day of the week!
2.Carson Wentz is due for a bounce-back game. Why not against a team he scorched the last time he played them? He was 23-41 for 291 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. If there was ever a team to let Carson get back to form, It’s the Rams. Let’s make him 2-0 against them!
3. Jared Goff does not have great numbers against the Eagles. In two games against the birds, He’s 0-2. He has 269 passing yards, with two touchdowns and one interception. Along with that, he’s been sacked four times and fumbled the ball three times. You have his number, so that bolds well for our squad.
4. The secondary. After having much change occur in the secondary, It appears we may have some stability. Against the Washington Football team, they allowed only 178 yards and a touchdown. When Darius Slay was covering star wideout Terry McLaurin, he only gave up three catches for thirty yards. McLaurin had ten catches for two hundred and fifty-five yards, and two touchdowns against the Eagles last year. Welcome to the No-Fly Zone!
5. Lane Johnson is back! There is nothing more important than getting Lane back in the lineup. We are a better team with him. Without him, we are 6-12. With him, we are 36-17. Having him back in this game, It gives Carson the protection he properly needs.
6.There were few players you needed back as you did with Miles Sanders. Everything will improve with Sanders back. Your run game, blocking, and play action are just some of the aspects that will improve.
7.With Sanders back, your other running backs will be able to stick to what they do best. Boston Scott and Corey Clement will be able to run between the tackles and be pass catchers. I expect a much better game from the pair thanks to their responsibilities lessoning.

9.Jalen Hurts will debut today! He’ll be your back up Qb. Look for some gadget plays for Hurts. He’s not Taysom Hill. He’s not Lamar Jackson. However, since we have Lamar’s 2018 Offensive coordinator, I can see a similar usage. Runs, screens, fake throws, etc. Hurts will allow for some creativity in the offense.
10. Brandon Graham is playing! I can’t stress how big this is. He’s a key defensive piece for this team. He’s a leader, not to mention a big run stopper. Having Graham playing will allow for this defense to have a big day. Let’s eat!
Look for The Eagles to bounce back and win 27-14!
