The Philadelphia Eagles 2011 Roster As Of September 4th

I give Andy Reid and Howie Roseman credit for awarding players who made an impact during the preseason. They didn’t protect players whom they had drafted, solely because they had been drafted in high positions. They made some very tough decisions, but this roster will change after the first week.

The Eagles roster includes ten rookies, eight draft picks; Danny Watkins, Jaiquawn Jarrett, Curtis Marsh, Alex Henery, Dion Lewis, Jason Kelce, Julian Vandevelde, and Brian Rolle, as well as two undrafted free agents; punter Chaz Henry and defensive tackles Cedric Thornton.

The Eagles had two players, Winston Justice and Juqua Parker, take salary cuts in order to stay on the football team. Personally I wonder why more teams don’t approach players who are still very capable of contributing to the football team, but are no longer starters to take pay cuts.

Later today I will take an upclose look at each position and evaluate it.

OFFENSE:

Quarterbacks (3) – Michael Vick, Vince Young, Mike Kafka

Running Backs (4) – LeSean McCoy, Ronnie Brown, Dion Lewis and fullback Owen Schmitt

Wide Receivers (5) – DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant, Riley Cooper and Steve Smith

Tight Ends (2) – Brent Celek, Clay Harbor

DEFENSE:

Offensive Line (9) – Jason Peters, Evan Mathis, Jason Kelce, Danny Watkins, Todd Herremans, Winston Justice, King Dunlap, Julian Vandervelde and Jamaal Jackson.

Defensive Linemen (10) – Ends – Trent Cole, Jason Babin, Juqua Parker, Darryl Tapp, and Phillip Hunt.
Tackles – Mike Patterson, Cullen Jenkins, Antonio Dixon, Trevor Laws and Cedric Thornton.

Linebackers (6) – Jamar Chaney, Casey Matthews, Moise Fokou, Akeem Jordan, Keenan Clayton and Brian Rolle.

Defensive Backs (11) Corners: Nnamdi Asomugha, Asante Samuel, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Curtis Marsh, Trevard Lindley and Brandon Hughes.

Safeties: Kurt Coleman, Jarrad Page, Nate Allen, Jaiquawn Jarrett and Colt Anderson.

SPECIAL TEAMS: (3) Kicker: Alex Henery Punter: Chas Henry Long-snapper: Jon Dorenbos

Brandon Graham (knee) opens on the PUP list, meaning the earliest he can play is Week 7.

We talked about it last evening,
Going with only 9 Players on the OL is questionable (Especially since WJ was just activiated and who knows what kind of football shape he is in)
Carrying 11 in the Secondary is also a little much.. and the DT position with M PAtterson and the often injured T Laws still has question marks along with a very young LB Corp (which we knew all summer)
Breaking it down, Roster has 27 Players on Defense and only 23 on Offense with 3 Special Teamers to make the 53 man roster
I think the Eagles should have kept OL R Wells and TE Lee in lieu of a 5th Safety and DL T Laws or J Parker or even TE C Harbor who I am still not sure is even NFL Material.. Letting TE Lee and DL Hargrove are 2 mistakes that will come back and bite them and the Eagles better hope they get no one injured across that OL earliy in the Season for their is a lack of depth
Out of 8 heatlhy players,(Not counting WJ) 3 are 1st year Rookies (Kelce,Watkins,Vandervelde) rookies and 1 is new (Mathis) to the team so that’s half your OL are basically all new players

I do see them scouring the Waiver/Released lists for an experienced LB and prefereble one to play the Middle for that really like Chaney at the SAM Spot..

G-Man likes J Parker so much that he listed him Twice in the Defesive Line roster.. (should be 10 Players listed for DL and not 11)

DL – 10
LB – 6
CB – 6
Safety – 5

For a total of 27 Defensive Players

Some Roster-News with other NFC East Teams

The Giants keep 7 LB’s
After their starters Goff, Boley & Kiwanuka, the remaining 4 LB’s are all Rookies..
The Cowboys have 0 FB on Roster but kept 4 TE’s
The Redksins kept a whopping 8 WR’ on their Roster and only 2 QB’s (Beck & Grossman) …

Paulman…..I know Da Bears got Merriweather…but you have to realize that their safeties are nothing compared to our Tandem…..We’ll be hearing Page/Coleman from the halls of Canton one day.

These two beasts could be the greatest safety tandems in eagles history.

And with the ball hawking, tenacious Nate Allen waiting in the wings…it’s gravy.

Nate Allen strikes fear into opposing recievers and quarterbacks when healthy, he take runningbacks head on and stop them in their tracks. With Page we have the experience of Dawk with the hitting power of Ronnie Lott wrapped up into one.

September 4, 2011 1:51 pm

Ditto to what Stevo said (minus the Madden stuff..ha)
EAgles feel pretty good about their Safeties and 3 young players in Allen,COleman and Jarrett, they are going to give these players time to develop and have Veteran Page help out
The Key to the Eagles Defense will be how quickly the LB mature and become Professional type of LB, and no one will know this answer until they get a few games under their belt.. (but we knew this all SUmmer long as fans so it is not a surprise.. Outside of a LB, I really don’t see the Eagles adding anyone else to this roster (unless an injury occurs over the next week or so..)
I think the Roster is about 98% set and we will see what happens..

Stevos new season Chal for you all-

…… stop ripping on everyone for everything said about the birds. Lets put our forces together and talk crap about the rams and such this year. Bottom line is this…. the birds did a very good job of putting a teaam together this year. Was it perfect? no. but they did a great job. Letsa remember how bad our D was last year. Lets remember how we had 1 CB. Lets remember that our D line coach had 0 talent. Lets remember that we had NO pass rush. Lets remember that we have no GREATLY worked on those areas… while adding a Solid RB and WR to help out. Would we love a RT?? sure. a better MLB?? yes. But this is a good team. lets get behind them…. and eachother.

`1 sidenote- we can still rip on paulman for his phillies crap from the start of THAT season.

Our D was bad, yet we were ranked 12th.
So, with our new additions, take the 1 out of the front and put us at 2.
And we won’t be last in the redzone either.
We have an elite defense, and our great offense only helps even more.
And having a top defense also gives our offense some room for error whereas we had none/little last year.

Check the new acquisition, Thornton released for Howard Mudd’s lineman Kyle DeVan. He actually started at guard last year for the Colts too. I like it.

wild….THAT’S BS!!!!

This is not about having pro bowlers at every position…It’s about letting proven players go just to replace them with garbage.

We were sold Dawk was over the hill only to have him go to the pro bowl the same year…while our safeties stunk…and right now Dawk over the hill is better than every safety on our roster.

We should have not let him on the open market period!!!!!

He was the equivalent of Ray Lewis to the Ravens.

He was the glue to our defense and gave us an identity.

Now we have Mr Softee in the middle contributing to the worse red zone defense in Eagles history….

We thought we could get Merriweather after Dawk was gone…The Pats slipped over us and drafted a two time probowler right from under our nose.

We had Earl Thomas sitting right there for the taking…and draft bum ass Graham and Soft Nate Allen.

This is not about pro bowlers at every position….it’s about not replacing players with comparable talent.

Stevo and Wild, you must keep in mind, this is Eagleshater.com. Nothing positive is ever said, by rule. NNamdi signing is not enough. Cullen Jenkins does not matter. Sgning Vick long term is irrelevant. Asante is not sufficient. Aquiring J Peters means nothing. Hate hate hate, that is what we do.

NO Saints made some nice upgrades Defensively by adding

Only question ? is their OLB play… Their Offense is more consistent and better than the EAgles and they have a better HC in Sean Peyton

Songs, it is not worth the time spent in order to reply to your blabber. For a guy who claims to be “Highly educated” you apparently do not know the difference between “accepting” and “excepting”. I recall you screaming that the Eagles were cheap, racist and a gaggle of other non-sensical things. Take your ignorance elsewhere, I am through with it. Or perhaps I should say “threw with it” you are not smart enough to know the difference. We all know you are not a man of your word, you promised to leave the site if the Eagles signing NA, and have failed to do so. Show the slightest bit of integrity, and do what you said you would do. Leave.

NO does not have a better offense, they dont score as much as we do and we have added more than they have. and we have yet to play to our potential consistently, so no we def disagree if you cant see that. thats cool, long as we win, I’m sure you wont mind be wrong if the Eagles benefit from it lol.

The NFC’s top 5 are obvious, we agree there. I don’t think the actual order matters much at this point, but it’s cool to see ur p.o.v.
When you go into detail, each team has their arguments to be 1/2

Jets Release former first round 6’4 250 lb Aaron Maybin. He’s only 23 years old and has been in the league for 2 years. We need to get him now… he played at penn State as well.WE NEED TO SIGN HIM ASAP!!!!!!!

September 4, 2011 9:10 pm

Maybin is a good talent, monster in college.
My friend watched his whole college career, and thinks he is best used at defensive end, not at LB.
If we were to get him, he would play at OLB, but we’ve had guys like that before that couldnt play LB.

With that said, I liked Maybin at MBL for the Jets, he played against some 2nd stringers, but mostly 3/4 stringers.
He was on a different level, and should be a starter in this league honestly.
I really do think he can play the MLB, and I would get him for depth and monitor him throughout the year in case he can crack the starting lineup.
But I’d sign him as a backup and let it play out. He can play OLB/DE, but I really liked what I saw in pass coverage too, so idk he gets such a bad wrap…

September 4, 2011 10:17 pm

I am in Matthew’s corner, been defending him since he was named the starter.
If preseason had any glimpse at things to come with rotating Matthews and Rolle, I’m cool with it because DL/WRs rotate.
I trust the team, the record is 0-0 and the jury is out on all rookies right now with no official games to grade them on.
I would just take a chance on a former first round pick with a roster spot and see what happens.
Since we would have to release someone if we picked him up, I guess I’d release Parker, because I don’t think we can move Marsh to the practice squad without another team signing him.

Maybin a complete bust and the EAgles will have no interest in himm
He should have stayed another year in Happy Valley and really is an undersized Pass-Rusher at best and the Eagles have enough of those, Maybin is not an

The Saints have a better all around Offense than the EAgles,
They may not make the big plays as often as the Eagles but they are muh more consistent and have better play calling and run the ball so more effective than the EAgles and use their TE’s a lot more.. They are a much more difficult to defensd for they use the entire field and utilize all 5-6-7 weapons they have on Offense.. (plus their OL is one of the Best in the entire NFL (from L to R) Bushrod, Nicks, Kreutz, Evans and youngster Strief at RT

September 4, 2011 10:32 pm

I think 5 Lbs’ will rotate quite a lot
Starts with Chaney,Matthews and Fokou as the Starters in thir base defense

In passing situations
I see Chaney sliding inside, then Clayton on one side and Rolle in for Fokou on the other side.. Lots of Speed, better pass-coverage and better Blitz capability..

September 4, 2011 10:34 pm

we were 4th in rushing yards in the whole NFL, and 2nd in points.
the Saints offense is more ideal and the protocol, we are unorthodox but good at what we do
I would have agreed with the OL being the best, but after their performance last season I don’t.
Brees was only sacked 26 times, 6th best in NFL, but he threw 21 picks because of QB hurries (and a little Eli syndrome) and they ahd the 28th ranked rushing attack.

wmonell
wmonell
September 4, 2011 10:38 pm

We have as many weapons, and our weapons are better.
Desean, Maclin, Smith, Avant, Cooper
did you know Desean is the most explosive WR (and players) in the game
Maclin is the best 2nd WR in the game (more proven than Dez and Julio right now)
Smith is the best 3rd WR in the game
Avant is the best 4th WR in the game
Cooper is prob the best 5th WR in the game as well

lesean mccoy led the NFC is all-purpose yards (2nd in the NFL)
ronnie brown is a workhorse, dion lewis provides great depth and return skills
celek could have caught the ball better, and blocking more than usual affected his mindset, but he showed he is a pro bowl caliber player
harbor made some plays and is a good 2nd te

paulman
paulman
September 4, 2011 10:57 pm

I will give you D-Jax being the most explosive WR in the game today, but you are way off the mark about the others..(Maclin and Smith are good, but not great and both are coming off some health issues), Avant and Cooper are what they are (4th/5th Wr’s and probably don’t even make 1/3 of the NFL Teams Rosters)
I think the bigger point your missing here is that the Saints OL is much better, Their HC S Peyton is a much better play caller than AR/MM and bottom line D Brees is a better all-around QB than VIck is.. He is a better decision maker
Now the Saints WR Corps is M Colston, D Henderson, L Moore and R Meachem and as a grop put right up with the Eagles , and thieir TE Jimmy Graham is going to have a break out season and be an All-Pro for the next 6-8 years. and also have the stready reliable Davis Thomas for blocking and Red-Zone. Now at RB, you have a healthy Pierre Thomas, Darren SProles, and Top DRaft Pick M Ingram who just may win the Offensive Rookie of the Years

So when I look at Comparison of Offenses between the Saints & Eagles
I actually have the Saints rates higher due to better OL, better QB, better TE, and having comparable WR and RB Corps and then when you have a HC/OC Of Sean Peyton over Coach AR/MM, it’s definitely in the Saints Favor from top to bottom looking at the big picture…

paulman
paulman
September 4, 2011 11:10 pm

Saints after thfirst hald last season were down thier 4th RB after losing P Thomas, & R Bush to inhjuries last Season and their is no doubt that D Brees play did slip a little and the entire Saints team did (A little Super Bowl Hangover)
But they went out and add a Stud in MArk Ingram, repalced the up and down, moosy R Bush with a reliable professional in D Sproles and then have the Reliable and tough RB in Pierre Thomas.. This RB group is probably one of the best RB’s groups in the NFL .. The other State that is mis-leading is the EAgles Rushing YArds, when you take VIcks scrambles, and his 675 Yards and almost 7 Yards per rush avg per scramble, it skews the numbers … The EAgles are a better rushing team, but the problem is that they only rush 35% of the time so they don’t really take advantage of McCoy and especially the back-ups who rarely even get enough carries to get into a rhythm.. Just like a WB needds to get into a Rythm, so do RB’s and when you only get 12-15 Carriers a game, It’s difficult for a RB to find his groove and back-up RB R Brown will be luck to get 5-7 Touches a game basically wasting his talents..

Forgive my dear Eagle brothers, for I have just sat an read a disortation on why a team that let a 7-9 team bounce them out of the playoffs and who is so much better than us.

That is not my sin though for said team truely is good. My sin is that I continued to read and allowed my eyes to be damned as they took in the words of another man who gosh dang nabbit dressed down my ever freaking loving Eagles Players on an ever freaking loving Eagles oriented website, visited by ever freaking loving Eagles Fans.

To appease the Eagle Gods, I will walk twenty miles in my nakey nakey and whip my back until said evil is forged from my ever freaking loving Eagles mind, and said Eagles Football dieties will have mercy on my football soul.

Thats my story and I am sticking to it!

Hay Paul you left out how ugly our cheerleaders are compared to the Cowgirls, and how the saints Cheerleaders have a better dance routine. Don’t leave out how harder workers the field crew is in Tampa.

Now Paul, your still my website homeboy thats just how it is cuz, still you dressed our whole damn roster down what was I suppose to do brother. If my brother is a bit slow and you yell out that he is a retard, well hell then I have an obligation under the laws of family to jab you one in the kisser.

To Monolith,
I have to tell it like it is and right now I don’t how anyone who follows football would claim the Eagles offense to be superior the Saints with all the issues going on along the Eagle OL and having players like Maclin/Smith really having little practice time.. I think the Eagles will be a good offense team the 2nd half of the Season, but I thik they will be pretty ugly to watch the first 4-6 weeks of the Season.
And the reassons I say this are bascially because Coach AR/MM are not going to change their play-calling or their philosophy, it’s who they are and frankly, I don’t ever see them winning a Super Bowl with a 65% to 35 % Pass to run Ratio, In fact, Vick won’t last 10 games throwing the ball this often..
It’s just not true and I have to call them like I see them..

I didn’t say Maclin and Smith were not that good,I stated they were good, but not great.. I also stated that Avanat and Cooper would have a tough time making many other teams rosters and I stand by that.. Avanat is a class act, and a good player, but he is too slow and can be blanketed by an athletic LB which is not good for a WR.. Cooper to me is just a reserve, back-up and nothing special at all in my book..
5 Eagles signed to Practice Squad – WR C Hall, FB S HAvilli, OL D Reynolds, LB G Lloyd and DE Teo Neisham.. (they have 3 more they can sign to Practice squad and I imagine DT C Thornton will be added and possibly another RB or TE in case of Imjuries ..

Panther released DE Everett Brown who never panned out as a pass-rusher for them after being a 2nd Round Pick from 2-3 years ago..
But here are 4 players they did pick-up from other teams
DT Marcus Harison from the Bears, DE G Selvie from the Rams,
CB Josh Thomas from the Cowboys (who I liked out of University of Buffalo)
Safety Steve Brown from the Raiders
WR S Ajiroututu from the Chargers
OL/G Max Jean GIlles from the Bengals..

Panthers placed their Starting RG (G Scwartz) and his back -up RG (Gary WIlliams) on season-ending IR list this weekend and they are now hurting at the Guard Position

in order to pick-up these players, they released WR D Clowney, DE/OLB Thomas Keiser who was an undrafted Free-agent out of Stanford who I liked out of college.. I am not sure he’s athletic enough to LB at the NFL Level but he’s a tough kid and always is around the ball..

Same to you Mono

Here’s a RB’s name to keep in mind for Eagles Practice Squad..
Josh Vaughn who was released by the PAnthers (who have D WIlliams,J Stewart and M Goodson all ahead of him) but I saw this guy over the last 2 Summer Camps and he’s a very good runner and receiver out of the backfield. he is from Unirsity of Richmond and was on Panthers Practice squad..
and 1 more tid-bit of news about a former Eagle, remember RB Joquie Bell who the Eagles grabbed from the Bills last season and had on the practice once or twice over the Season and then the Saints grabbed him late in the years when they lost most of their backs to injury, well Joquie Bell has a grea tcamp and is now the 3rd RB on the Saints Depth Chart and they really like what they see in him.. Remember this name this Season for I predict he will see significant actimid-season for the Saints

Like the roster choices for most part. Hopefully the Oline can gel quickly. If that happens and Vick gets better protection, AND the team has no serious injuries, I think it’s a strong contending team. It’s fine if the team progresses, but has Reid’s game-day coaching improved finally?

Why would you guys want to bring in another undersized player. Maybin is a DE, but ways 225LBS. Come on guys. We have to go with what we have now. It’s too little too late, to get any difference makers. Maybin is a bum! Stop it already. Our LB’s are who they are! No use bitching about it anymore, it is only going to give us ulcers! No better than 9-7! Hope i’m wrong!
