Eagles Make Roster Moves To Address Rash Of Injuries

barbreThe Eagles made a flurry of moves on Tuesday afternoon.

Allen Barbre and linebacker Najee Goode landed on the injured reserve list. Barbre was lost for the season with an ankle injury, while Goode has gone down to a torn pectoral muscle.

The team also placed Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis on the injured reserve/designated to return list. Mathis will not be eligible to return to game action for a minimum of eight weeks.

To fill the roster spots, the Eagles added former Pro Bowl guard Wade Smith, and promoted Kevin Graff and linebacker Emmanuel Acho from the practice squad.

Smith was in the Pro Bowl just two years ago, and spent the preseason with the Seattle Seahawks. He’s an 11-year veteran that brings some needed experience to the reserves, but its unclear how much he’s got left at this point.

Graff and Acho were with the Eagles through the preseason, and many hoped Acho might make the team over Casey Matthews.

The loss of Najee Goode hurts a little more than some people realize. Goode was a solid contributor on special teams, and was developing nicely as a reserve linebacker. He performed well in a start that he made for Mychal Kendricks a year ago.

  • Acho should have been on this team from the start of the season.
    Did Matthews do ANYTHING on Sun? Probably got blocked trying to come out the tunnel.
    Trey Burton is still trying to figure out how to put his jockstrap on!

    Those 2 will go down as the BIGGEST waste of 2 roster spots in NFL history.

    • Damn Iggles what did Trey Burton do to you. LOL it’s not like he’s Matt Barley or something.

  • And the Attrition begins in the NFL..
    Anyone know the Status of RB Chris Polk
    Eagles cannot afford to keep only 2 RB’s
    Active on Game Days.. Colts D has some big guys up front
    And blitz LB’s often which would be better to have Polk take those
    Shots or even Tucker than letting McCoy take on Blitzer’s
    On passing situations, especialkyveithva banged up OL
    Right now.. If Polk is iffy, then activate RB Tucker
    And release 4th TE Burton
    You just don’t have the Luxury of Carrying
    3 QB’s 4 TE’s & 6 WR’s when you are down to healthy
    2 RB’s and 6-7 OL…
    I have stated for 2 Years now that Brandon Graham
    Shoukd be crossed trained at ILB as well
    In case of Injury to Ryans/Kendrick’s…

  • To be honest,
    Players like T Burton & J Watkins will not contribute much anytime soon
    and could have been on the Practice Squad to Start the Season in order
    To have some Veteran Depth

  • On the plus side, Andy Reid took the blame for getting away from the running game at KC. He also lost two of his starters and his franchise QB who just got paid threw the ints when got away from his dink and dunk throws. Not that I’m bitter or anything.

  • Is this guy a marketing genius or is shady a classless piece of shit?
    PYT Facebook Page – I would like to address the LeSean McCoy tipping situation and our role in it.
    For starters, I take total and complete responsibility for sharing this receipt. It was not our server’s decision, it was mine. I am to blame.
    I decided to take action after some serious thought. And while I’d like to apologize to Mr McCoy, I cannot in good conscience do so. I stand by my actions one hundred percent.
    Mr McCoy and his three companions came into my place on Monday afternoon, and immediately the whole staff was excited. Mr McCoy is a skilled athlete and is one of our beloved Philadelphia Eagles. A true Philly legend and a sports hero. Understandably my staff was really pumped, especially on the heels of they terrific win the day before. (Go Eagles!).
    Mr McCoy and his friend sat inside at a booth next to my management and next to me. They were given excellent service. Impeccable service. If anything, our server was a little nervous as was our food runner, because they are big, big fans.
    He and his group, from the moment they sat down, were verbally abusive to our staff in the most insulting ways. The derogatory statements about women and their sheer contempt for the staff serving them wasn’t the end, however. After Mr McCoy and his group left I looked over and saw their server, my friend, with his head bowed down and with a very confused look on his face. I took the receipt out of his hand and I couldn’t believe that anyone could be so callous. Mr McCoy had left a .03% tip for our staff. Our staff that was beyond excited to see him walk into our burger joint and was excited to serve him. That’s twenty cents on a tab of over $60. Twenty cents that our server has to split with the food runner and the bartender. Two dimes from an insulting multimillionaire.
    I bet Mr McCoy is usually an awesome dude. And everyone has their bad days. But I’m from Philly and have had the pleasure of meeting many of our bad ass sports heroes. Ron Jaworski I met as a kid and I love. Iverson I loved. Mike Schmidt! You name ‘em. I love all of our athletes past and present. Hometown heroes who treat those below them with some respect. And maybe Mr McCoy was having a “bad day” after his big victory all that, but the reports of him receiving “bad service” is a complete slanderous lie, and my crew here is better than that and deserves better than that.
    At the end of the day, I did what I felt my heart told me to do. And I don’t want anything from Mr McCoy, but…maybe an apology to his server who gave him excellent service would be cool.
    Again, I am the owner and I take full responsibility for my actions. Eagles fans, I feel ya. Id be pissed too. But a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do and stick up for his friends.

    • For a business owner to provide personal information about a patron is wrong, always no exceptions.

  • I tell you, McCoy does and says some real childish things…
    He needs to grow the F up and be a Man and Leader and I don’t care how good of a player he is…

    • Paulman you haven’t seen nothing yet. Let Shady keep getting 70 yards a game and splitting touches with Sproles. “You know that 49 yard TD was Shadys TD”. Wait until the Eagles lose a game and Shady only has 15 carries he will start chirping about how he needs the ball more. Mark it down.

    • Ridiculous…the people who need to grow up are the fools who want to make an issue out of what Shady says and does…he plays hard he does his job! The bitter restaurant owner needs to grow up instead of bitching about his customers tips….maybe the server would have gotten a tip if the service was better!

      • reports are shady is gaining the reputation of being a total ass to servers and valets etc…. acting like a rich a.hole with no class== as i said i’ve defended him for being kind of a silly guy but…

  • Oh boy Pman you were right on this one…..Jairus byrd I heard is out for year with saints….everyone who were clamoring for him including me kinda egg on face deal….he’s injured prone

    • Oh Z I am about to go HAM on a couple people here if this is true. All this bullshit about Jarius Byrd I heard all offseason and when I said he wasnt worth it….blah blah blah blah…

      • No ham yet I can’t find anything on this yet I just saw it on bleeding green nation it was in the comments area, probally a false alarm

  • Lol in more funny news a NYG fan put a video of him burning a Eli manning jersey, Eli has regressed and appears to DONE

    • Doesn’t matter what Eli does for the rest of his career he brought the Giants 2 SB wins. I wouldnt care if he threw 50 ints a year if I was a Giants fan.

  • Yeah i saw that comment also and was wondering if it was true…Im not seeing anything or have heard about this injury.

  • Giants, Redskins and Cowboys not nearly as bad as what Eagle fans think. First off the only reason all three NFC East teams lost was their QBs didn’t play well and Nick Foles sucked in the 1st half just like Romo, RGIII and Eli. The only difference is Foles played better in 2nd half and we played the Jags. We tricked them on 4th and one and a new safety came in and blew a coverage letting Maclin wide open which turned the momentum.1. Dallas defense was in SF ass and Kap just made a few plays on offense but if Romo didn’t kill them Dallas would of won that game. Murray was killing SF. 2nd. the Giants went to high powered Detroit {there home opener) blew a few coverage’s and have a new offense with a pathetic showing by Eli. If Eli hits a few of them open receivers that would of been a much closer game. 3rd. Washingtons defense isn’t bad at all its just RGIII isn’t very good right now. With any QB play Washington wins that game. Bottom line is I think all three of them defense aren’t that bad, there running game was very good and if any of them QBs can get there shit together they will all be better than what we think.

    • Golden. That’s just it. Romo & Griffin cannot bring a team back when they have a bad outing. Foles is capable of doing that. Romo had several open receivers and he didn’t even see them. He was intercepted at the goal line by Willis because he called an audible into a passing play. If he would have just run the call as the initial call was they would have scored. Murray was tearing up the Niners because the Niners let him. Dallas was down big and the only option that Niners gave them was to run the ball. Which in return ate up the clock to where they couldn’t mount a comeback. The Niners also backed off at the end because they knew Dallas was done. Did we have a bad half? Yes, but to come back on a NFL team and shut them out completely (No FGs were made in second half by Jax) was a very good sign of character and heart.

      Redskins don’t have a prayer with RG3 or should I say RGme. Cousins would suit Gruden’s offense better.

      And Eli just doesn’t have the weapons or run game like he once had. His O line is horrible.

    • awful lot of ‘IF’s” in dags post…. IF the queen had balls she’d be king-
      If’s carry zero weight in the dog eat dog world of the NFL

    • Actually it was a bad special teams and defensive play that blew the Redskins game open.

      RG III wasn’t great, but he wasn’t horrible either (they’ve neutered the kid so until he finds his balls again expect “meh” games from him) – but the defense and special teams don’t eff up it’s a 6-3 defensive win for the Skins.

      I don’t know if I agree Dallas wins the game if Romo doesn’t throw 3 interceptions – there defense is bad – but it is MUCH more of game and while I think the Ealges offense can take Dallas’ defense – Good Romo can take our defense too.

      No on the Giants. Just no. lol. But it’s the Giants so that good change.

  • he is a piece of shit for doing something like that to a working person, especially in that field of business.No excuse to treat your server like that when they went out of their way to take care of you. i owned a food business and if he did that to my staff and me I would be furious too it aint a PR move idiot its reality! Some of your fools that come on this site should try to put yourself in other peoples shoes it would be a better world talk sensible or dont fukin talk at all

    • I’m hearing that he is becoming known as a total ass by servers, valets etc…. total classless idiot. damn- and i defended him a while back– guess i’m wrong

      • I hear the opposite….when the low class restaurant owner put Shady’s receipt on line numerous people stepped forward and said they served Shady and he tipped well and treated them great! Bad servers don’t deserve tips and the ingrate restaurant owner had no right to put Shady’s receipt on line….why am I not surprised that on this forum guys would attack Shady and not that sleazy ass restaurant owner

  • In addition to being a bad tipper, I hear his friends aren’t good guys either, guess it’s time to trot out the ever popular football reasons again this off season.

    • could very well be– i think we talked about it before shady probablly will not get the contract he thinks he’s worth next time around…. damn i remember the golden age of the running back-now they are really not valued by teams!

    • lol.

  • Just opened my hopepage which has a Canadian news feed on it.

    Guess which was the 2nd story? “Superstar player leaves 20cent tip…..”

    Now, this may be just another example of how pathetic “news” reports have become in our media saturated society…..but regardless, its now international, and mainstream. It will be everywhere by this afternoon.

    Contrived McCoy apology coming in 5….4…..3……

    Good times.

    • Vinnie i am taking your advice…started looking for apartments in small italian towns– the media is killing me- i might disconnect my internet!

      • the shame of this lesean story is that there was a pretty nice piece on shady last night on E60.

        and when i copied and pasted the story from the owner i prefaced by saying this pyt owner could be a marketing genius. les bowen was reporting yesterday shady did that because the service was horrible. as an owner of a trendy place its possible he sensed horrible backlash and his business taking a hit so he put it on shady. i wasnt there so i dont know but im not ready to just take some random business owners word for it. especially considering the service could have been terrible.

        i myself have worked in many restaurants when i was in college and dependent on tips and guess what it is extremely easy to be nice and courteous to your guests. you make sure their drinks are always full, you take their order and make sure their enjoying themselves. ive seen co-workers not do these simple things and it would always piss me off. fast foward many years since my college jobs if i receive shit service i give 0 tip FUCK that. if i have to wait 15 minutes for a drink or ketchup or something like that im not giving you shit, thats ur job and if you dont wanna do it im not paying you.

        • it doesnt happen often though maybe once every 3-5 years

          • oh and 1 more thing about the owner and why i doubt his story and believe he could be using it to advertise and promote his business is because if shady was being abusive, rude, etc. he should have made them leave.

    • Vinnie he’s not going to apologize he said the service was horrible.

  • If McCoy was smart he would go down to the Restaurant,
    apologize and give a normal standard Tip
    To the Server and leave it at that, regardless if service was
    Bad.. He’s a popular, millionaire sports here in the region,
    Suck it up give the Server/Restaurant $20 and some Jerseys or Tickets and call it a lack in judgement on his part and move on…

  • Shady shouldn’t give the restaurant a extra dime and they should be ashamed of themselves for putting his receipt on line…that’s a low class, slimy move on their part…Shady supported them by paying for a meal there so the lack of judgement is on their part. Customers should never be harassed by a restaurant whether the tip or not…he paid for the meal!

    • I agree, McCoy shouldn’t give them a dime….It’s wayyyy to late for that.

      What he should do is use a little more common sense. If you go out in public you have to act like a public figure and not a normal person.

      It’s okay for koolbreeze to get pissed at a waiter for bad service and leave him a small tip. Nobody is going to post it on facebook and talk about it on GCobb.com. But when you are a public figure you can’t give anyone an excuse to publicly embarrass you.

      McCoy will figure that out….he’s only a 26 year-old kid. If this is the worse thing he ever dose he will be a saint.

      • PYT is a restaurant with bad service and I see why. Its one thing if the guy who served Shady put it on his facebook…but this is the damm OWNER of the restaurant! Are you kidding me. Shady was a customer, PYT aint the only burger joint in town as the Owner you should be grateful that Shady came to your spot…if you read a lot of the responses…most of the people are on Shady’s side on this issue…they realize that the Owner was way out of line.

  • Yes yes…”if the service was bad…blah blah blah.”

    Not the point.

    The point is McCoy has once again shown he is unaware of how things will be percieved.

    You are a high profile, millionaire athelete/celebrity.

    WTF do you think is going to happen if you drop $0.20…..regardless of the service? How do you think that’s going to go down in this day and age?

    Its bad optics, and its bad judgement on his part. How can athletes/celebrities be so frikkin’ obtuse to not think this kind of shit isn’t getting out?

    No matter what happened, McCoy now looks like a selfish self centered snob who couldn’t find $10 to give to the guy running around making less than minimum wage.

    The owner – of course he should not have put out the bill….but its the day and age (as we mentioned before I hate this day and age). Its the day and age when the this kind of shit ALWAYS gets out.

    Shady, considering his past…..transgressions? (perhaps not the best word) should know this. HAS to know this. And should act accordingly.

    Nothing he can do now will sound sincere in any way. So everyone should just STFU and hope some other celebrity does something stupid tomorrow to distract the masses.

    • Lol good pos vin and i agree shady shouldvknow

    • McCoy has once again….no…once again Vinnedaloser you make no sense. Shady is one of the top running backs in the NFL…I dont know him outside of the football field and I aint dying to meet him. I want his ass to run the rock on Sundays…I’ve been to PYT and they do have piss poor service, so if Shady sent them a message…instead of posting the receipt on Facebook they should hire better people and do a better job at their service….they look just like they are…idiots and when Shady runs the ball and gets us some wins…we will cheer and not think about all that bullshit you are tallking Vinnie about him

      • As usual, you misunderstand everything that you read.

        Fuck. I’ll put it in front of you in kindergarten language.

        Shady is dumb for not realizing (damn, too big a word for you)…ummmmm…. for not getting actions like this are going to bite him in the ass.

        End of story. Of course people will cheer for him you twit. That doesn’t mean he isn’t an idiot for putting himself in dumbass situations like this.

        • Vinniedafool…your a jerk as well. If you dumbass would look at the responses that PYT is getting it is obvious that most of the people are lined up in favor of Shady…
          Fool! what you and other fools fail to understand is that Shady personal life, how much he tips at restaurants, who he sleeps with, where he buys his clothes, what he had for lunch last night is only relevant to fools like you…but to real football fans this is irrelevant.
          As a guy who has been to PYT and will never go back…its not Shady thats hurt…its there business and a lot of people have said they aint going there because of that low class move on the part of the PYT owner…
          End of story for the dumb ass PYT owner and for you…you never say anything that makes sense anyway so your story is a never ending display of stupid…Fool!

          • So you felt the same way about Cooper then. His personal life, what he says, what he does is irrelevant to real football fans.

            All that matters is production and wins!!

            And now I feel I have to add this caveat before some of you blockheads who can’t comprehend hyperbole explode – Koolidiot first and foremost. Don’t get your head in a knot. I am not comparing the two in terms of severity. Its an exaggeration. But the same principal applies.

            Nothing matters but on the field right?

            Guy put himself in a bad light. That he doesn’t recognize tipping 2 dimes when he’s wearing a $50,000 watch is a dumb idea, makes him look….well…..dumb.

            • caveat and hyperbole in the same post… I see some head scratchin’ going on!!!!

            • Vinniedafool ! The same “principal” does not apply because the situations are totally different! Cooper made a racist statement on a team full with African-American players. This is one of the reasons why the team still feels admiration for a courageous Mike Vick who helped hold the team together in the face of Cooper’s racist rant!
              There is no bad light in this situation at all on Shady McCoy…the bad light is on the unethical restaurant owner and his mistreatment of a paying customer. And Shady said he was teaching them a valuable lesson that disrespectful service is not to be tolerated.
              Shady does not have to tip-toe around with a fearful worry about his image..he is a grown man and he simply has to avoid doing what is wrong.
              There is a big difference between bringing bad attention on yourself because your are ‘MORALLY” wrong-(i.e Cooper) …as opposed to standing up for one self and not accepting poor treatment at a restaurant!
              In the final analysis….the bottom line is your production on the football field! As long as a player is not getting arrested, getting suspended from the team for doping and hurting the team-(Lane Johnson!!!) and produces on Sundays…I dont care about his $50,000 watch, his cars, his women…his personal life…that’s his business! Fool!!

              • Figured you’d totally miss out on the whole “hyperbole” bit.

                Back to Kindergarten words for Koolbreeze.

                New nickname suggestions:

                Kindergarten Koolbreeze?
                KinderBreeze?
                KoolGarten?

                One of them will stick.

              • Koolwit > can’t beat the classics

              • I believe its principle in this application.

            • are you really comparing a man tipping someone…to calling someone a racist name? The fact that any one has a comment about what anyone else does with their own money is very laughable to me.

              • And trying to insults Kool’s intelligence which only shows their lack of intelligence, priceless.

              • you are right lion… thats picking low hanging fruit. sorry.

  • CHarlie Sheen has stepped up and sent the waiter a $1,000 tip. WINNING

  • ALSO PEOPLE ARE SAYING THIS RESTAURANT AUTOMATICALLY TACKS ON 20% ON EVERY BILL.

    IF THIS IS TRUE THIS BUSINESS WILL BE CLOSING VERY SOON

    • They have bad service and their burgers aren’t that good anyway…they should be put out of business for abuse of a paying customer!

  • LOL now there is a report saying the NFL had the Ray Rice tapes since April. Can we just fire everyone and move on, one case of domestic violence and the whole league crumbles what a bunch of idiots.

    • the cover up always has more fall out then the crime. HAC said when it came out that it was a pussy move by this punk, the league should deal with it harshly… I was poo pooed by you and others now its a shit storm of lies, cover ups etc.
      Now since the video has surfaced there is moral outrage! posters, media, league and team mates saying it was a punk ass move! It takes video to make people think beating the shit out of a woman apprehensible…. IT WAS APPREHENSIBLE THE MINUTE IT HAPPENED- VIDEO OR NOT!!!
      This bullshit commish is in a shit storm! he was suspended two games, roughly $550k– now all of a sudden lets say its 6 games… 1.7Mil– for those of you that say ‘oh but he’s been cut’– sorry that was guaranteed money– this move saves Balt roughly $800k.. bullshit

    • The Commissioner should be fired immediately…do they really expect us to buy the story that they didn’t see the tapes…BS!!

  • on another note, LOVED the way Attauchu (spelling??) looked on Monday night… and Marcus Smith can’t get on the field???

    • Thank u reed im tired of the ray rice situation already i also said attochu looked good why smith doesnt at least play shit maybe the schrme wasnt meant for him against jaguars

    • Marcus will hardly play in 2014 unless there is an injury to Barwin,Cole or Graham and was Drafted to be groomed and learn and be ready for 2015 as Brandon Graham leaves via Free-Agency and the Eagles Release Trent COle for his Crazy Contract kicks into high DOllars for 2015/2016/2017 at $12 to $14 Million per Season which isn’t going to happen..
      Marcus Smith will be the opening Day Starter opposite of Conner Barwin come 2015.. This is why you Draft, for the Future ..

      • Really? Just like Jarrett was the answer at safety and Matt Barkley was a value pick. We have no idea if he is the starter in 2015. You draft to get guys to help you win period they didn’t draft him with the idea of getting him ready for 2015.

  • The King from “Burger King” was just named the New Commissioner of the NFL, as Tweeted by a Mistress of Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones named Asia, and no, not the Mistress who is suing JJ , but a more Current one who is reportedly Oriental…..Free Burgers and Special Sauce for Everyone….

    • Congrats to Howard Eskin for being named the new Commissioner
