E-mail dont want to be writing this. Here goes.WinnersThe Dallas CowboysThis is the worst sentence I have ever written. The Cowboys beat the Eagles last night Youth Malcolm Jenkins Jersey , so they are winners.Jason GarrettGarrett deserves as mark for his success tonight: its worth arguing that his job (if not his, then OC Scott Linehans) was on the line barring the outcome of the Eagles game, and he lived to survive another day. Dallas came out with one of their more creative game plans weve seen for Dak and company, and they knew how to attack the Eagles defense (though it wasnt a mighty tricky challenge).He even was willing to go for it on an early 4th and 1 (penalty made it 4th and 6) and had the stonesy call for a 4th and 2 fake punt. Garrett clearly heard the criticism and adjusted accordingly.The Philadelphia EaglesLeopards dont change their spots, and Jason Garrett is a bad head coach. If he is retained after this season, thats a win for the Eagles.The Washington Football TeamNow up two games in the division (with, of course, both Eagles games remaining), Washington comfortably extended its playoff likelihood with the Eagles loss and a win against the floundering Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I am positive that Washington is not a very good football team and will do little in the playoffs, but Im also quite certain the Eagles arent and wouldnt either.Washington also benefits from said retention of Jason Garrett.The New York GiantsNah Im playing they cant win theyre really bad.Zach ErtzZach Ertz is on pace for 133 receptions and 1,402 yards this season. Both would shatter existing records for tight ends (110 receptions, 1,327 yards). Hes enjoying his best yards/game output by far in his career at over 80 yards an outing; his catch rate is equal to his career high at 72%.He is so, so very good. And on a night in which Carson Wentz struggled to find Alshon Jeffery in space down the field, Ertz was absolutely imperative to keep Philadelphia in striking distance though of course, it was all for naught.Jalen MillsNursing an injury http://www.eaglesauthorizedshops.com/authentic-brandon-graham-jersey , Mills sat against the Cowboys, leaving Rasul Douglas to start in his place. Douglas had a shaky evening, though it wasnt really all that bad regardless of where you put it on the spectrum, it wasnt any better than what Mills puts on the field every Sunday.Mills also lead the hype huddle in the tunnel, which isnt so much a win for Mills as it is a reminder for us: he is an emotional leader for a young secondary, and its unlikely we will see him lose his starting job any time soon (even into 2019). Tough to take a respected, feisty guy and bench him.Jake ElliottScrew every single one of you who ever doubted my fully grown man child. 56-yarder wasnt even a question. Leighton Vander EschI had love for some aspects of LVEs game on the preview Kist & Solak Show, but I also had my apprehension of him in the passing game. Well, Im here to take my lumps: he played a stellar game from pole to pole, highlighted by a big early interception that gave the Cowboys points when their offense looked inept out of the gate.LVE and Jaylon Smith together prove a distressingly physical, long, and rangy duo of linebackers for the Cowboys. Still unclear if they can be expected to win without Sean Lee long-term, but I dont imagine hes in the 2019 plans for the defense.LosersThe Philadelphia EaglesI dont like this.Doug PedersonIf you regularly read the W/L/IDK column, youll known Im averse to overly criticizing the play calling. And overall, Pederson called the game just as well as he typically has. There is a conversation to be had the Eagles offense looks worse in 2018 after the loss of OC Frank Reich and QB coach John DeFilippo; how much did they affect the game plans? but overall, hes still a great play designer as compared to many offensive minds in the league.However! He does have some favorite hits that just feel a little stale Rodney McLeod Jersey , and you saw that tonight. The screen game in long field goal range backfired for Philadelphia on multiple plays against the Cowboys, which lead to potential 4th down plays in no mans land instead of extended drives. The emphasis on horizontal stretch plays that run short of the sticks again put Philadelphia in more 3rd down situations than youd like to see, especially early in the game. Doug seemed to just take the ball out of Carsons hands in a lot of key moments, going for isolation or one-read plays with Carson stoic in the pocket instead of letting him roll out and really run the offense. They seem to need to strike a balance there.Also, this is the best 12 personnel offense in the league and they ran the least amount of 12 personnel as they have all season. Wasnt like they were getting Golden Tate on the field a ton, either (20% of snaps). Drafted a TE in Round 2 and simply dont use him. I can neither explain nor excuse that. Tre SullivanBoy...Retire.In all seriousness, Tre aint good and aint never been good once.T.Y. McGillFor those of you who dont know (which was me, during this game), T.Y. McGill was the defensive tackle the Eagles picked up during one of their many, many roster shufflings this season. (Honestly couldnt tell you which.) He wore #74 and was absolutely exposed in the running game all night long. He and Treyvon Hester (#90) couldnt buy an anchor to save their lives against the Cowboys zone flow (Hester is the culprit on the Zeke run up there).Eagles DT depth sucks almost as bad as their safety depth and RB depth.Eagles RB depthWhat happened to Corey Clement? I know he added mass in the offseason, but why does that mean he cant catch anymore? Has he lost all of his separation quickness? I dont understand. Another enigma for which I simply dont have an answer.I dont think Josh Adams is good. At all. But I do think he is running with confidence, and thats more than either Clement or Smallwood have going for them. Give him the rock, bring Smallwood in to catch passes, Clement to pass protect.I know you want to be able to hide what each RB means tendency wise, but eventually you just gotta let the players do what theyre good at.Carson WentzFeels weird to put him here. He didnt play poorly; it was just not his best game. Still the man, a great QB Authentic Lane Johnson Jersey , and the future of the franchise. Dont take it personally, pal (Carson reads my columns). Still good for huntin on Tuesday? (See, Im asking this, because he reads my columns, because we hang out.)LosersJim SchwartzYou cant convince me its fair to evaluate a defensive coordinator when his starting secondary in the fourth quarter is Malcolm Jenkins, Corey Graham, Avonte Maddox, Chandon Sullivan, and Rasul Douglas.As compared to the Super Bowl defense, the defense Jim had in the fourth quarter was missing five/six starters, depending on if you count Vinny Curry/Derek Barnett as a starter on the defensive rotation. Yeah, I wanted him to play more zone coverage and bring confusing blitzes: but when you cant defend the run up front and have new faces in the defensive backfield, its tough to get creative on the fly.Im not sure what he could have done, so Im not going to sit here and call him out.Rasul DouglasThere were a lot of people who wanted Rasul Douglas to get a starting look; I was one of them. But its important to note: Sul getting a starting look wasnt so much important in the sense that he was better right now than Jalen Mills or Ronald Darby, but rather that 1) he might be and, much more importantly Youth Nelson Agholor Jersey , 2) he might be a year from now.With Darby approaching a contract year, you need to figure out what you have with Sul; how much value you put in his ability moving forward. Philadelphia played their corners up a fair bit last night, and Sul acquitted himself decently well: he closed two Amari Cooper go routes into the sideline, compressing the throwing window to make the pitch and catch a tough proposition; he gave up a key third down on a slant release to Allen Hurns. It was as up and down as you would expect.Sul requires further evaluation, into his third year as a player. (Thats typically when you close the book on a player, which is bad news for Dak Prescott.) How do they feel in the building about his development? Im not positive, as this was the first significant game action hes seen all season. We have to find out.Mike Wallace injury update: Theres optimism Eagles receiver can return later this season The Philadelphia Eagles officially placed Mike Wallace, who suffered a fractured fibula in Week 2, on the injured reserve list earlier on Wednesday but his season might not be over just yet. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reports his understanding is that there is optimism that Wallace can return late in the year. That indicates a clean break without a lot of collateral damage.This report echoes what Doug Pederson had to say about Wallace during his Wednesday press conference.It also matches up with his potential recovery timeline, which could be around six-to-eight weeks. By being placed on injured reserve, we do know for sure that Wallace isnt eligible to be activated until after Week 10. This means hell miss at least seven games; note that the Eagles have a bye in Week 9. We also now know that one of the following three players will not be coming back to the 53-man roster this season: Wallace, Mack Hollins, or Richard Rodgers. The NFL only allows two players to be returned from injured reserve per season. Hollins and Rodgers will be eligible to be activated after Week 8 since they were placed on IR leading up to Week 1. Itll be interesting to see what the Eagles decide to do. Its too early to say for sure what will happen because a lot of things can change from now until then. We also have to see how the players progress during their recoveries. For now, its nice to know Wallace isnt guaranteed to miss the rest of the season.
