I wasn’t expecting to get this version of Jordan Howard

Event details

when the Eagles traded for the former Bear back in March. It was a low-risk move. Howie Roseman and the Birds traded a mid-round pick for a guy whose efficiency and overall production dropped each successive season of his three-year career. Maybe he could fill that 2017 LeGarrette Blount role?Howard has been 2017 Blount and more Womens Chris Long Jersey , exceeding my hopes for a true thunder and lightning pairing alongside rookie running back Miles Sanders. He’s a battering ram, seemingly always gaining yards after contact and consistently falling forward to grind out every possible yard. It’s refreshing. He can be both a starter and a closer in the backfield. How did the Bears let this dude go?He didn’t fit Matt Nagy’s offensive system it seemed. Nagy and Doug Pederson stem from the same coaching tree, but Pederson appears quite capable of acclimating his offense to the machine in the #24 jersey. Howard isn’t a fool. He knows what the Bears brass was saying about him. He knows that he was written off. He knows he’s been revitalized in Philadelphia. This week has been circled on Howard’s calendar for months. Come Sunday, it will be time for revenge. Chicago has a stout defense again this season, though not quite as good as last year Wendell Smallwood Jersey , as they sit seventh in Football Outsiders’ defensive DVOA metric. Their run defense, specifically, is only 13th though. The Bears aren’t pushovers against the run, but Howard is going to have a chance to get his. The Birds have gone 41-straight games without a 100-yard rusher. If there was ever a time for Howard to snap that streak, it will be when Nagy is standing on the opposite sideline.On this week’s episode of From the Bleachers http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authentic-chris-maragos-jersey , I rejoice in a season-saving win in Buffalo, pray for Jordan Howard’s ultimate revenge and chose some parting words for the snake known as Orlando Scandrick. For anyone listening, I appreciate you tuning in! I’m excited to find my voice with BGN Radio and thank you for coming along for the ride. It’s been a while since the Eagles had a home game, but if you’re looking for a spot to tailgate on Sunday, hit me up on Twitter (@shamus_clancy) or via email (shamusjclancy @ gmail dot com). We’ve had some readers come through this season and it’s been a blast. Come by and snag a BGN shirt too!SUBSCRIBE: Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify | Stitcher | RSS Different teams approach playing their starting quarterback in the first preseason game different ways Womens Darren Sproles Jersey , but the Eagles aren’t saying which path they’ll be taking against the Titans this Thursday.Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said at a Tuesday press conference that the team has not made a decision about whether Carson Wentz will start the game at quarterback.Wentz did not play in the preseason at all last year as he made his way back from a torn ACL. He ended last season on the sideline with a back injury, but has not been limited in practice this summer the way he was last year.Nate Sudfeld, Clayton Thorsen and Clay Kessler are the other quarterbacks on the roster and Pederson said in his press conference that one of the team’s goals in the preseason is to get Sudfeld “as much playing time as possible.” We’ll find out if Wentz cuts into that playing time in a little more than 48 hours.
