Brian Westbrook Documents the Apparent Downfall of Jason Peters

The pass-happy play calling is a concern. The injuries are a concern. The defensive secondary is most definitely a concern. But never did we think the Eagles’ offensive line would be a concern.

Carson Wentz was under siege Sunday afternoon on many of his 50 pass attempts. He was sacked four times and hit 11 times. As Brian Westbrook documents in this video breakdown, Jason Peters was partly to blame and is, suddenly, a big reason for worry:

“Yo, I’ve never seen this. Literally, the first time I’ve ever seen this happen to him. Someone’s gonna get hurt.”

That someone, obviously, is Carson Wentz.

Peters gets annihilated on the play, and it’s noteworthy that Westbrook, who played with Peters, is the one delivering the critique. This isn’t Joey from Passyunk Avenue emotionally overreacting to a bad play, or me screaming at Jalen Mills when I’m not privy to scheme and coverage responsibilities. This is an established NFL veteran taking a measured and unbiased approach in diagnosing a glaring problem.

Of course, the head coach could probably help his 36-year-old left tackle who is coming off a significant knee injury by, you know, running the ball.

Just thought I’d add some more gloom to your morning.

Enjoy your miserable Monday.

    So, trying to stay positive here. Looking at the two L’s so far this season, is it just a coincidence that the Eagles played poorly in the two games where they played in what was described as brutal heat? In fact, if you remember, Peters did not even finish the Tampa game. I know when the game came on yesterday and the announcers mentioned how unseasonably hot it was I worried about that element affecting players like Jason Peters right away. Does that theory have any merit?

      It was mid 80s in TN yesterday boss, not 100. I noticed that it was also mid 80s for the Titans.

      No. The hangover is real. Honestly the refs very much helped us beat the Colts. How many times did flags extend that winning drive against Indy? 3. We could easily be 1-3 right now.

      You posted the same thing on Profootball Talk and you sounded just as stupid there. Pass Interference call was fine. It gets called on a play like that all the time.

      Eagles had a cupcake schedule last year and lost to two of the three good teams they played. They so far have played the over-rated Falcons and barely won; the terrible Bucs and got torch, the terrible Colts and barely won, and the mediocre at best Titans and lost in OT.

      Minnesota has no pass defense and the lousy Kirk Cousins at QB so it’ll be an easy win for the Eagles. Also, Mike Zimmer is a moron. But that win will not be some statement regarding them being unable to stop the Titans on three fourth downs in OT.

        You’ve never posted this before and you sound brilliant. Pass Interference call was bad. It never gets called on a play like that in overtime on 4th down.

        Eagles had a very difficult schedule last year and barely lost to two of the three good teams they played and had a great record. They so far have played the under-rated Falcons and won; the streaking Bucs and barely lost, the surging Colts and handily won, and the great Titans and lost in OT.

        Minnesota has fierce defense and high powered Kirk Cousins at QB so it’ll be an easy win for the Eagles. Also, Mike Zimmer is a woman.
