7. Where is Fletcher Cox?
The Eagles’ best player has three total tackles and no sacks as we march into Week 3 of the 2019 regular season. Now, all of that isn’t Fletcher Cox‘s fault. He was supposed to be a part of a rotation that includes Malik Jackson and Timmy Jernigan (both of which are gone), but when you command a salary like his you tend to stick out like a sore thumb when things don’t go right.
Eagles fans can rest easy. Cox will be fine. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ he’ll explode. It’s a matter of ‘when’. It would just be nice if ‘when’ turns out to be September 22nd.
8. Will the Lions attack Ronald Darby as a strategy?
Whether fair or unfair, had Ronald Darby not come up with an interception in Week 2, he’d be getting killed right now. Actually, that’s not a correct statement. Darby’s getting killed anyway, and it’s hard to defend him. The opposing quarterback shouldn’t be looking for anyone the other team’s best corner is covering, and we do mean anyone.
It doesn’t matter who he’s covered. Darby’s being singled out. You know that things are bad in the secondary when the name Nnamdi Asomugha starts rolling off of fans’ tongues again.
Unfortunately, that’s exactly what’s happening. Here’s worse news. Kenny Golladay is coming to town on Sunday.
