After the Eagles recently extending long snapper Rick Lovato, it should come as no surprise that the Eagles are looking at extending his closest teammates.

On Wednesday, the Eagles signed kicker Jake Elliott to a five-year extension.

With the recent transfer of Rudy Ford to the injured reserve, the Eagle had just three safeties on the roster and none on the practice squad.

In a move to address that, the Eagles added Chris Johnson to the practice squad.

While there was much fanfare about the release of Jordan Matthews over players like Mack Hollins, there is little doubt why the spot on the roster needed to be opened up at this point in time.

On Tuesday, the Eagles announced that they had officially activated the 21-day window for injured corner Cre'Von LeBlanc to practice with the team.

Eagles Evaluation: Embarrassing Offense Shows Up Again

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

What can be said but déjà vu.

The Eagles defense once again managed to keep an offensive juggernaut and the league's likely MVP to an easily beatable score for the entirety of the game.

They also managed to force timely turnovers.

Instead, the offense, once again, lost one of their starting offensive lineman following their second offensive drive of the game, this time, the recently extended Brandon Brooks, who had been the top lineman in the league throughout the entire season.

The rest of the offense faltered and looked worse than they did last week.

Instead of not getting anything going this week, the Eagles offense would have smooth drives going and then ended with self-inflicted errors like penalties, interceptions and fumbles. Even things like busted run plays with short yardage were a routine issue in this one.

Health is a major issue for the offense, but it isn't for Wentz and he has been awful in just about every aspect of his game the past two weeks aside from running and tackling.

Postgame Report: Eagles vs. Seahawks

MISERABLE. This team is absolutely miserable. I understand we had injuries. So what? We just roll over and die? Carson Wentz certainly didn't want to win (he had four turnovers). Andre Dillard looked like he's never put on a helmet and shoulder pads before. The defensive backs need to go to a pee-wee practice and re-learn how to tackle because RASHAD PENNY ran all over this team. RASHAD PENNY.  At the half, the Eagles were down 10-3, and they played hot potato with the pigskin for the rest of the game. Here's what I saw in the back half of this embarrassing performance:

Halftime Report: Seahawks at Eagles

By Matt Ryan, Sports Talk Philly Contributor

The Eagles face the Seahawks in week 12 of the regular season. The Eagles offense has looked horrible so far as they trail the Hawks ten to three at the half. Here's what we saw in the first 30 minutes of action:


First Half Offensive MVP

WR Greg Ward Jr. Ward has been the only bright spot in this Eagles offense, catching five balls for 31 yards. Ward has been the Eagles most reliable receiver, playing in just his second NFL game.


First Half Defensive MVP

S Malcolm Jenkins. Jenkins has played great in the first half, finishing with two tackles and a huge second down sack. Jenkins has played a huge part in the Eagles holding this great Seahawks offense to just ten points at the half.


Who Needs To Step Up

QB Carson Wentz. Wentz has not looked good this half, finishing with 62 yards and two turnovers. If the Eagles want to have a big comeback, Wentz needs to have a huge second half and lead this struggling offense.


Who To Watch Out For

RB Chris Carson. Carson has had a slow first half finishing with 14 yards on five carries. With the high winds in the second half, Carson could be getting a lot more carries. The Eagles run defense is going to need to stay strong to contain Carson in the second half..


Eagles Promote Greg Ward, Place Rudy Ford On IR

With the Eagles potentially heading into their match-up with the Seahawks with just three healthy receivers, a move needed to be made.

On Saturday, the Eagles promoted Greg Ward Jr. to the 53-man roster.

Week 12 Preview: Seattle Seahawks at Philadelphia Eagles

By Matt Szczypiorski, Sports Talk Philly Contributing Writer

Coming off a tough loss last week to New England, the Eagles play host to another elite team in the 8-2 Seattle Seahawks.

This battle of the birds has been dominated by the Seahawks in recent years. The Eagles have defeated Seattle just once out of seven contests since 2005.

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the Eagles are playing another huge game that some would consider a must-win. An Eagles loss this week coupled with a Dallas victory would be crippling to the Eagles playoff chances.

With the way the Eagles have played throughout this season, would anyone really be surprised if this team misses out on the postseason? I sure wouldn’t.

Playoff teams play well consistently. Playoff teams keep their best players healthy and on the field. Playoff teams catch the football. The Eagles do none of those three things. These reasons, as well as a multitude of other reasons, are why the Eagles are sitting on the outside, looking in on the postseason.
