Eagles vs. Jets preseason week 4 2017 takeaways

  1. Don’t panic: Again, it’s only preseason and the first team didn’t play. Sept. 10, 2017’s regular season opener against the Washington Redskins should provie a better picture of the Eagles’ potential for the season.
  2. Nick Foles still isn’t ready: Backup quarterback Nick Foles remains one of the second string QBs in the league – when he’s healthy. During the preseason, Foles hasn’t looked great in practice and sat out against the Dolphins in game three of the 2017 preseason, as well as last night’s game against the Jets.
  3. Matt McGloin may not stick around: Despite his current injury, Foles is far superior to Matt McGloin. At the conclusion of the preseason, McGloin sits at a 74 passer rating, with a pass completion of 69.7%, and a 5.3 average. That’s fairly poor. It’s better to cut him and hope that Carson Wentz doesn’t fall prey to injury while Foles is sidelined.
  4. Dexter McDougle looks hot: Coming into yesterday’s Eagles vs. Jets match, questions about McDougle swirles. But he came out with a vengance clocking in three tackles and a pass deflection.
  5. Elijah Qualls may make the roster: As The Eagles Wire reports, Elijah Qualls’ stock skyrocketed. Qualls concluded the game with a sack in the red zone, and this in turn led to a field goal which added points to the board for Philly.

Overall, it’s always disappointing to lose a game. But better in the preseason than the regular season.
