Dean out for weeks
Bradberry in concussion protocol probably is out. should be out
Cox may be out

man losing the superbowls gets you a tough road opener followed by a thursday night game.

win and you get the season opener at home on Thursday so 10 days between games.

Don't see how they fix the offense in 4 days

Very disappointed in how little they used Swift & Goeddert and that Penny was inactive

As Bel said, Gainwell is not main back level. If Swift & Penny are not good enough - then this is going to be a big issue all year

I expect the OL & Hurts to play better, but Johnson did nothing to provide hope with play calling

Gainwell & Blankenship also with rib injuries

Defense could be a big issue Thursday

As I said in the GDT, I'm hopeful that the bland play calling was the belief they didn't have to show anything to beat the Patriots and it almost blew up in their faces.

I'd like to see the offense open up and I'm hoping they stop playing such a soft zone and let that pass rush put pressure on the QB and make him hold the ball so he forces more throws or takes sacks.

Not looking good for Blankenship or Gainwell
Bradberry will be out
Cox has a chance to play

Missing 3 defensive starters - ugh

Vikings will try to utilize quick passes; slants to Jefferson as the Eagles play their usual soft D
For the Eagles to have a chance to win, the pass rush needs to get there
