I can't stop thinking about the #Eagles' decision to draft WR Jalen Reagor over WR Justin Jefferson -- who went one pick later, to the #Vikings
Was it speed, like @MoveTheSticks suggested? I don’t think so.

Justin Jefferson: 4.43 forty-yard-dash
Jalen Reagor: 4.47 forty-yard-dash

So, why did one of the league’s most statistically-minded / forward-thinking GMs decide to take Reagor over Jefferson?

Roseman made this point very clear: Outside Separation

Instant Round 2 Grades! Here we go! #NFLDraft2020

Starting with...
33. CIN - Tee Higgins WR9 ... C

My 44th overall player, I think there are better values & better WRs available.

I also would've gone OT here, unless an AJ Green trade is imminent.

Building around Burrow is a good move, though. #Bengals
34. IND - Michael Pittman Jr. WR12 ... D

I'm lower than many on Pittman - 53rd - I just think there are much better prospects at WR. Multiple are still on the board: Laviska 21st, Mims 36th, Edwards 43rd.

Also, not the route I would've gone here with such a valuable pick.

My 1st Round Grades w/ Analysis in the thread:

Referenced my Big Board for value (linked again below w/ my other #NFLDraft content)
All my #NFLDraft content, including my Top 100 Big Board, in one spot👇
A+ (5 total) = Elite pick - great player & fit + excellent value
A (6) = Great - great player & fit
B (5) = Good - would've done it differently
C (5) = Reach / Left value on the board
D (6) = Come again? ... Why.
F (5) = See gif👇

Well it’s Thursday so that means it is time for the Week 3 edition of #NarrativeStreet. With two games under our belt it’s tempting to think the hay is in the barn, but that’s dangerous thinking. It will continue to change every week so don’t anchor those opinions....
...stay flexible and keep attacking as things evolve.

So let’s check in with the biggest stories and see what’s happening. We’ll hit some Team Narratives first, then finish with individual players....buckle up, it’s gonna be a long one...Happy Week 3 - LFG!

#NarrativeStreet
#Bears 📉📉: People are fuh-REAKing out. But they started v two ferocious pass rushes, and they came out 1-1. Am I excited about them? No. But they get a weak Wash D this week, and the post bye sked is pretty soft. Be patient.

Stoked to announce @ZooKeys_Journal published our @BatumiRaptors data paper! It explains how our #citizenscience project monitors the autumn #migration of >1.000.000 #raptors in the Eastern Black Sea Flyway, and how to use our #openaccess data @GBIF/@NLBIF! - 1/n

#ornithology
Many #raptors migrate primarily by thermal #soaring. To do so they travel by day and avoid high mtns and open sea. This leads to spectacular raptor aggregations in overland #flyways. One of the world´s largest raptor flyways occurs along the eastern Black Sea coast in SW Georgia.
The Eastern Black Sea Flyway has its narrowest point just north of #Batumi, where the coast and Lesser Caucasus form a clear "bottleneck". The mtns are not extremely high but present a significant barrier for #raptors on #migration due to low and dense cloud cover. @BatumiRaptors

Some have asked me to respond to today’s Carson Wentz story.

I don’t typically comment on other reporter’s stories on the #Eagles beat and won’t here.

But I will offer some reporting I’ve done on Wentz’s personality the last year, which I hope accurately captured his nature ...
From April: Will Carson Wentz alter his aggressive style as he returns from knee surgery? Frank Reich, who had his battles with the #Eagles QB, and others weigh in: philly.com/philly/sports/…
From Sept: “Carson Wentz’s Comeback. The long, arduous road for the Type-A #Eagles QB who had to surrender his will to outside forces: philly.com/philly/sports/…

Shot 1 - One of the strengths of Nick Foles' game is his ability to get the ball out quick. At his peak he reads the defense and gets the ball where it needs to in the construct of the play. Great examples here from the win over #DaBears #FlyEaglesFly
Shot 2 - Alshon Jeffery continues to be a huge part of the #Eagles passing game, they used him a ton as the X Iso WR on the backside of trips in this game vs #DaBears, and he came through against his former team. #FlyEaglesFly
Shot 3 - That last throw to Alshon does not happen without this block from Dallas Goedert. He has done a really good job as a blocker this year, and he came through in this game for a couple of big ones. This was a great heads up play from the rookie. #FlyEaglesFly

Shot 1 - #Eagles DT Fletcher Cox was dominant in the team's win over the Rams on Sunday Night Football. Pass Rush? Check. Run defense? Check. Motor? Check. Cox is ELITE #FlyEaglesFly
Shot 2 - Michael Bennett set the tone for Jared Goff on the very first third down of the game with a huge hit on Goff. Bennett flashed against the pass and against the run in this game #FlyEaglesFly
Shot 3 - Haloti Ngata played 42% of the snaps on Sunday night and made his presence known against the run and the pass. Gave the #Rams OL fits inside. #FlyEaglesFly

Not a fan of #CondoleezzaRice, an actual Bush war criminal.But her skill set would be better used as #NFL commish, where she could make some changes.

This is just an obvious attempt to skirt the Rooney rule. There are many female coaches who never authorized torture.Choose one.
So we rehabbed Bush2 with a mint at McCain's funeral and Uncle Joe awarding him a medal at the Constitution Center.

Now we're going to rehab #CondoleezzaRice by giving her a job she has zero qualifications for? I mean I love the #Eagles but I'm never going to be their coach.
I just feel compelled, as someone who wrote a bazillion words about the Bush administration over eight years, to remind people that it was Rice as NSA who ignored the outgoing Clinton memo warning about possible attacks. And 9mos later, 9/11. Then, two wars.

Just saying.

In January I took a long look at the #Falcons defense and everything they brought to the table. This is a fast, aggressive unit with talent at all three levels. My plan is to build off of this piece in this week's write-up

READ: goo.gl/b3aTqa
Shot 1 - The #Falcons have some juice up front on passing downs. Takk McKinley, Vic Beasley and Grady Jarrett have ability to be very disruptive, and they use all of them in various 2- and 3-man games in their 4-man rushes
Shot 2 - Grady Jarrett is very disruptive on the interior thanks to his quick first step, snap anticipation and hand-usage. Jack Crawford is still a consistent, versatile player for them, and the addition of Terrell McClain will serve this DL well early on #Falcons

This morning, I called this my favorite stat this year. But then I thought that was an exaggeration. It's my favorite stat for the #Cardinals.

Here's my favorite stat for every other team. #Thread
#Falcons in 2016: 1.57 TDs per FG attempt
2017: 0.85 TDs per FG att
#Ravens
Joe Flacco was 7th in pass atts in 2017, never threw for 300 yds, averaged <200 per game.

Resolvemos listar em forma de GIF as reações e o que aconteceu durante e depois do "Milagre de Minneapolis", no último domingo (14), na partida entre #Vikings x #Saints pela @NFLBrasil. Então vamos lá?!
Uma pergunta: em quem Marcus Williams queria dar um tackle?
Aqui por outro ângulo... coitado do Marcus Williams, ficará na off season pensando nessa jogada!

Shot 1 - Wentz to Mack Hollins. 3-level stretch concept. Ball traveled 62.8 yards in the air (per @MattHarmon_BYB). Beat Quarters safety
Shot 2 - Great ball from Wentz here. Reads safety jumping shallow cross, throws Ertz open into the void. Great touch & poise vs blitz
Shot 3 - Ertz TD off rub concept starts w/ great communication from entire O. 2 players in motion, everyone had to stop pre-snap. Saves play
