    Fansided: Andre Dillard has a message for Philadelphia Eagles fans

    Rookie left tackle Andre Dillard has a message for Philadelphia Eagles fans and everyone else who will be watching 'The Birds' and Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. It appears the rookie is ready, but that's the Eagles way, isn't it? They're underdogs who are constantly employing that 'next man up' mantra.

    Entering this Week 7 clash of long-time rivals, Philly's a two-and-half-point underdog, per actionnetwork.com. Both teams are without their starting left tackle. That means the job of protecting Carson Wentz's blindside falls on Dillard.

    Recently, in a story written by Chris McPherson that was released on the team's official website, Dillard shared his thoughts on the opportunity.

    Fansided: 3 Subplots in an important Philadelphia Eagles Week 7 contest

    There's no doubt that the Philadelphia Eagles' Week 7 game versus the Dallas Cowboys is one that will define the course of the season. Heading into their 120th meeting, the Eagles boast a 52-68 record against their rivals, including the playoffs, and this edition marks the first of two divisional games for these two proud franchises.

    Dallas and Philadelphia have played at least one primetime game against each other since 2007 and in that series, the Eagles sit with a not-so-hot record of 5-7. Hopefully, they'll be adding another 'W' after Week 7.

    Both teams come into the game with a 3-3 record and both lost in Week 6, but Eagles fans could rest easy as the team's loss to the Minnesota Vikings didn't damage them too much.

    NumberFire: Sunday Night Football Preview: What Should You Expect in This Key NFC East Matchup?

    The Philadelphia Eagles go on the road to face the Dallas Cowboys in a matchup of heated division rivals, giving us a Sunday night game full of intriguing betting angles.

    The betting public is clearly siding with the Eagles, with 83% of the bets and 84% of the money taking Philadelphia's side of the spread (PHI +2.5), according to oddsFire. Things are even more lopsided on the moneyline, with 93% of the bets and money backing the Eagles at +130 to win outright. With an over/under of 49.5 points scored, 74% of the bets have come in on the over, while only 58% of the money is on the over, implying that there have been some bigger bets siding with the under.

    Fansided: This Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz stat is very disheartening

    One thing was apparent when the Philadelphia Eagles made Doug Pederson the 22nd head coach in team history, well the 21st if you're refusing to count Pat Shurmur's one game as interim head coach in 2015 (thank goodness he didn't get promoted). What everyone watching Pederson's hire knew was this. 'Dougie P' was going to need a franchise signal-caller to hitch his wagon to. In 2016's NFL Draft, he went with a 'Wentz Wagon' as Philly took Carson Wentz with the second-overall selection.

    That led to a 7-9 record as Wentz set the NFL record for most pass completions by a rookie quarterback with 379.

    Fansided: 3 Reasons Philadelphia Eagles CBs have no excuse versus Dallas

    Well, it happened. Something needed to happen to take everyone's focus off of how bad the Philadelphia Eagles' wide receivers were playing, and something did. Unfortunately, it wasn't the 'something' everyone hoped for.

    Philly's secondary took all of the negative attention from the Eagles receivers as they turned in their worst performance of the season. That came in a Week 6 tail kicking at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings. The result was a lopsided game whose score doesn't give a real indication of how bad things went.

    'The Birds' put up 20 points in that one but gave up 38, thanks in large part to a stinker by their cornerbacks.

    Philly Sports Network: Has Howie's cornerback draft strategy hurt the Eagles?

    Howie Roseman has been with the Eagles since 2000, when he broke into the league as an intern on the Eagles' salary cap counsel. Ten years later, Howie became the Eagles general manager. Since then, discounting 2015 when Chip Kelly was general manager, Roseman has overseen nine drafts.

    In those nine drafts, his positional picking has accumulated as follows:

    QB: 5
    RB: 7
    WR: 7
    TE: 3
    OL: 11
    DL: 16
    LB: 9
    DB: 15
    K: 1

    As you can see, the top two drafted positions in Howie's tenure have been in the secondary and defensive line.

    Fansided: 3 Things for Philadelphia Eagles fans to consider at cornerback

    We've seen a lot of dropped passes, but the Philadelphia Eagles secondary, specifically their cornerbacks, have to receive most of the blame for this team having an up and down season.

    Many media members have been quick to unfairly blame the season's early failures on Carson Wentz, Max Kellerman of ESPN's First Take still wants to believe that this team responds better on offense to Nick Foles. The majority of everyone else, fans included, believe the dropped passes and poor secondary play are the real issue.

    After the secondary got lit up for 333 yards and four touchdowns by Kirk Cousins, there's some fear knowing quarterbacks like Dak Prescott, Tom Brady and Russell Wilson are on the horizon, and those aren't the only reasons for Eagles fans to worry.

    Bleeding Green Nation: The Eagles' run defense was great. Now it's a problem.

    What is a scheme change?

    No, really. What is a scheme change? Whenever specific units struggle; or certain plays break invariably in the opposing team's favor; or opposing players of a particular mold seem unstoppable, we call for a scheme change. The defensive coordinator needs to run this, and the offense needs to try that. They need to change the scheme.

    Let's offer the Eagles' secondary as an example. Here's their problem:

    The Eagles are bleeding big plays in the secondary, a violent hemorrhaging that can only spurt from multiple causes.

    Fansided: Philadelphia Eagles: Rasul Douglas' time as a starter is winding down

    The 2019 NFL season hasn't been great so far for the Philadelphia Eagles. While the team has struggled all across the board, one unit on the roster has stood out the most, though. And not for a good reason. As we know, the Eagles have perhaps the worst cornerbacks in the game.

    As they continuously get torched on a weekly basis, the Birds were looking to upgrade the team by potentially making a trade for Jalen Ramsey. Now that he's out of the question, the Eagles are reaching for their Plan B, which means they are sitting back and holding out hope that when the entire unit gets healthy, the find a resurgence.

    Fansided: Philadelphia Eagles: Alshon Jeffery denies accusations behind anonymous reports

    ESPN NFL Reporter Josina Anderson has been the talk of the town this week in Philadelphia. As Anderson dug up some dirt within the Philadelphia Eagles locker room and reported it, everybody is beginning to make assumptions and point fingers at who the perpetrator may be.

    This kind of situation isn't exactly new for the Eagles, as the same type of issue happened last year. When Anderson spoke to an 'anonymous' source within the Eagles' locker room, somebody apparently complained that Carson Wentz targeted Zach Ertz too much.

    That eventually led to a hit-piece regarding Wentz from the PhillyVoice, which was published months later, including accusations from other players within the locker room as well.

    Fansided: Here's how Philadelphia Eagles defense limits Minnesota in Week 6

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense had a coming-out party with a dominating performance against the New York Jets on Sunday. That's led just about everyone to the same question. Will they be able to keep it going against Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings offense this week?

    Facing a third-string rookie quarterback with a struggling offensive line, the Eagles defense was supposed to dominate their matchup with the Jets, and they did. They tallied ten total sacks. They forced three turnovers, and they recorded two defensive touchdowns en route to a decisive 31-6 victory.

    Philly Sports Network: Trading for Hassan Ridgeway is proving to be a great move for Eagles

    The offseason moves that should've created the most dominant interior DL in the league have all come to nothing, with the line being derailed by injuries brutally early.

    Former Pro Bowler Malik Jackson was injured in the Redskins game and is out for the remainder of the season with a Lisfranc injury.
    The following week in Atlanta, Jernigan broke his foot and although he is making good progress, he still is yet to practice.

    In comes Hassan Ridgeway. A 4th round pick by Indianapolis Colts in 2016, Hasaan was traded to the Eagles for about the latest of 7th round picks (#246).

    Fansided: Are DeSean Jackson and Darren Sproles done as Philadelphia Eagles?

    Here's something no one wants to say. To be honest, it may even be hard to believe given all of the reports that we've heard, but at this point, we're approaching Week 7, and there seems to be no change in either of their statuses. For that reason, there has to be a very real question that's asked. Have the Philadelphia Eagles and their fans seen DeSean Jackson and Darren Sproles for the final time in midnight green?

    There's been no medical evidence to support that. Philly hasn't placed either of them on the team's IR (injured reserve).

    If you're one of those people who are mad at Philadelphia Eagles vice president and general manager Howie Roseman today, then you should be ashamed of yourselves. He's arguably the best in the business at what he does for his football team. If you disagree with that, put yourself to the test.

    Outside of the New England Patriots, who can you say is better at manipulating salaries, walking a thin line with the salary cap, and finding really good players at bargain-basement prices? Did you see how quiet things got? Do you know why that is?
