Bears perspective on Philadelphia’s new backfield member. Antworten

"The Philadelphia Eagles addressed arguably their biggest roster need on Thursday by trading for Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard.In order to better get to know the Eagles’ new rusher , I thought it’d benefit BGN readers to get a Bears perspective on Howard. In order to do that, I reached out to Lester A. Wiltfong Jr. (@wiltfongjr) of Windy City Gridiron. Here’s what he had to say.1 - Can you sum up Jordan Howard’s Bears career?Howard is a good football player and he outplayed his original draft status as a fifth round pick. He was the focal point of the John Fox offenses, and he’s a quality running back, but he’s also limited in what he can bring to an offensive attack. He’ll get what’s there, he’ll run through arm tackles, and he’ll fall forward when tackled, but he’s not a “Wow” player. The Bears want a guy that can do more in the passing game. A player they can split out or motion into the slot, and Howard is a classic ‘line up seven yards deep and run’ power football player. His hands are fine as a receiver, he’s just not dynamic in space after catching the ball. The reality is that Howard isn’t a good system fit for Matt Nagy’s scheme. His yards per carry went from 5.2 as a Pro Bowl rookie Womens Jake Elliott Jersey , to 4.1 in the second year as John Fox’s lead back, to 3.7 in his first year in Nagy’s offense. Some complain that he wasn’t given enough carries, but he had 252 in his best season (2016), and 250 last year.One of our guys did a film breakdown of him last November, and he thought that some of Howard’s troubles had to do with not facing eight in the box anymore. It sounds weird, but with defenses not stacking the box they were in a better position to converge on him and tackle him once he hit the hole. When they were stacking the box, Howard had more room to run if he broke free. In 2016, when he was always running into an eight man front, he had 10 runs of twenty-plus yards and 2 runs over 40. In 2018 Derek Barnett Jersey , Howard only had 5 runs over 20, and 1 over 40. 2 - What’s the reaction to the Bears trading Howard? Did fans want the team to keep him?Fans were split like on most things. There are extremists on each end of the spectrum with some complaining about the Bears giving up a top tier running back, while others are saying ‘good riddance’ because he sucked in 2018. Both of those takes are horrible. Like I said earlier, Howard is a good football player, but a running back in the last year of his contract that doesn’t bring versatility to an offense simply doesn’t have much value in today’s NFL, which is why Philly got him for a 6th (or conditional 5th). If this was 20 years ago, Howard would be a star, and he’d be paid accordingly, but teams don’t view the position like they used to.I think Howard will slide into the LeGarrette Blount role like from the Eagles Super Bowl team and average about average about 11 carries a game. He’ll be the starter and the goal line/short yardage back , but he’ll be a part of a committee approach. 3 - What are Howard’s strengths?I already mentioned a few, so I’ll talk about a different one here. He’s outstanding as a pass blocker. I breakdown sacks allowed for the Bears each game, and Howard didn’t give any up in 2018. If my memory serves me right, he’s only allowed 1.5 sacks in his three year career. His base is strong when taking on blitzers and his blitz recognition is good as well. There have been many times when he’s picked the right guy to block when defenses have tried to get tricky on the pass rush. 4 - What are Howard’s weaknesses? Speed and quickness. He’s just not a sudden runner and he’s not making anyone miss. If you’re looking for explosive plays, look elsewhere. 5 - Is there anything to know about Howard off the field?Nope. He’s a quality guy off the field and in the locker room. His teammates and the beat reporters all talk highly of him. We actually interviewed him last year about his charity and he’s very likable. Thanks again to Lester from WCG for the insight!For more on Howard, here’s an old scouting report leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft:Film breakdown:Spider graph via Mockdraftable: PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carson Wentz proved to the Philadelphia Eagles in three years he’s worth a huge investment.Wentz and the Eagles have agreed on a four-year contract extension through the 2024 season. The deal announced Thursday night adds four years to Wentz’s rookie contract. It’s worth $128 million with more than $107 million guaranteed, according to ESPN.“From the moment I got drafted here, I knew this place was special, I knew they had the most passionate fans in the world Womens Chris Long Jersey , in all of sports, and I knew we had the opportunity to build something truly special and to be cemented here means the world to me,” Wentz wrote on Twitter.Wentz is 23-17 in three seasons as the starting quarterback but has missed 13 games, including five playoff contests over the past two years. He finished third in NFL MVP voting in 2017 when backup quarterback Nick Foles led the Eagles to a Super Bowl victory over the Patriots.Wentz tore his ACL in Week 13 in 2017 and sat out the final three regular-season games in 2018 because of a back injury. This is only his second full offseason preparing as the starting quarterback. He was No. 3 on the depth chart in 2016 until Sam Bradford was traded a week before the opener.“It’s a huge benefit,” Wentz told The Associated Press last week about practicing with the starters throughout the summer.“Unfortunately injuries happen and sometimes you can’t be out there but any chance I can be out there, I want to be. I want to be attacking it full on and building chemistry with these guys. … Building that chemistry and that foundation this time of year is critically important and it’s been fun so far.”Selected No. 2 overall out of North Dakota State in the 2016 draft after Jared Goff, Wentz has thrown for 10,152 yards, 70 touchdowns and 28 interceptions with a 92.5 passer rating. Despite some inconsistency last season Wendell Smallwood Jersey , he posted career highs in completion rate (69.6 percent) and passer rating (102.2). His 32 TD passes in 2017 and completion percentage last season are franchise records.A fierce competitor on the field, Wentz is equally passionate about his charitable work. He launched his Audience of One Foundation after his rookie season and last week hosted his second annual charity softball game with teammates at the home of the Philadelphia Phillie. The event has drawn more than 40,000 fans and raised more than $1.3 million for his charitable initiatives. Those include building a sports complex in Haiti, a 25-foot food truck named “Thy Kingdom Crumb” that delivers free food to people in the Delaware Valley, an ice cream truck that’s coming soon and an outdoor youth program — Camp Conquerors — that serves children with physical challenges and life-threatening illnesses.“We love being a blessing to others and sharing Jesus with people,” Wentz said. “These are things I’m really passionate about.”
