Eagles players went to Harrisburg to lobby Pennsylvania legislators to pass the Clean Slate Act, which would give some nonviolent offenders a better chance to succeed after paying for their crimes.
It’s even possible that Okung and other players could decide to skip next week’s meeting if their unhappiness with the league continues.
I am disappointed that further progress has not been reached on discussions with the league, Okung said Thursday. NFL officials appear unmotivated and don’t share the same sense of urgency. Increasingly, the meetings appear unproductive at best and disingenuous at worst. Furthermore, the ongoing disparagement of Colin Kaepernick is a factor needing remedy for the players and public to feel heard and for real progress to be made.
Wentz was the better quarterback on Monday night, but Kirk Cousins threw for 303 yards and three touchdowns. Monday night was a win for Philadelphia, but it suffered a big loss with Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters. Peters left the game in the third quarter with his leg in an aircast.
Redskins 24, Eagles 34. After giving up the field goal, Cousins works 75 yards down field with a series of six short passes for Washington touchdown. He throws a 12-yard pass to Reed to bring the Redskins within 10 points as we approach the 2-minute warning.
But a good finish to the first half of the season means nothing unless we pick games better in the second half of the season, which is getting closer. Week 8 brings a shorter slate but plenty of chances to fly out of the gate.
