In an attempt to better get to know the player, I thought itd benefit BGN readers to get a Titans perspective on him since he spent his last two seasons in Tennessee. In order to do that, I reached out to Jimmy Morris (@jmorrisMCM) of Music City Miracles. Heres what he had to say.1 - Can you summarize his stint with the Titans? When the Titans signed Cyprien we expected them to use him primarily as an in the box safety. That is clearly the strength of his game. However, that is not how they used him. Dick LeBeau used him and Kevin Byard almost interchangeably. That left Cyprien in alone in coverage sometime and that is not his strength.I will say that he is great in the locker room and at mentoring other players. Cyp tore his ACL in camp last year. The Titans brought in Kenny Vaccaro after that happened. This offseason Vaccaro got emotional when talking about the Titans cutting Cyp because of everything he did to help Vaccaro last season - and that was for a guy that Cyprien pretty much knew was going to end up taking his spot on the roster. 2 - What were his strengths?His strength is in the box. He struggles in coverage but is a very reliable run stopper that isnt afraid to come up and make a tackle. 3 - What were his weaknesses?Anytime he is 1 on 1 in coverage it is not great. 4 - Whats your confidence level in him being a reliable contributor on defense? As a safety? As a linebacker? He is so much better as an extra linebacker than a single-high safety. 5 - Anything to know about him off the field?As I said above, he is great in the locker room. He is a guy that will step in and mentor younger players. ...Cyppy Cuy highlights (warning NSFW lyrics):Spider graph via Mockdraftable:Eagles News: Jalen Mills graded out as one of the top cornerbacks from NFL Week 3 Lets get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... NFL Week 3 Sunday Standouts: Defense - PFFCB Jalen Mills, Philadelphia Eagles, 84.4 Overall Grade. Mills was very active throughout the day, finishing with three pass breakups on the six throws in his coverage. His two pass interference penalties against T.Y. Hilton brought his grade down a bit, but ultimately, he only allowed eight yards in his coverage on the day. Across 42 snaps in coverage, that pegs him at an impressive 0.19 yards per coverage snap.Doug Pederson gives updates on Jay Ajayi Womens Jason Peters Jersey , Darren Sproles, and Alshon Jeffery - BGNPLUS: The Eagles head coach talked about the close Week 3 victory, and what they have to do heading into the Titans matchup.Fletcher Cox attributes his jump in play this season to Chris Long - PhillyVoiceI think the biggest thing for me is that they challenge me every day, in practice and games, and I listened, Cox said. My teammates challenged me, and I respect Chris Long so much. The thing about Chris is that he challenged me every single day. It just raises the bar for me as a player.Three moments that defined Carson Wentzs comeback - ESPNWentz called it a normal scramble and pretty standard for how he plays the game, and thats true. But to have both the willingness and ability to do that in your first game back is no small thing. It changes the game, it extends drives, center Jason Kelce said. We were one of the best third-down offenses in the NFL with him in there. Its just another dynamic the defenses have to [deal with]. Its definitely a dynamic that helps us be successful on offense, and thats one of the reasons he is a special player. Running back Corey Clement agreed. Yep Brian Dawkins Jersey , thats Carson, Clement said. You have to take the leash off him. That guy ... hes always wired to do something great.Fletcher Cox Deserves League-Wide Respect - PE.comA player with three Pro Bowls and three All-Pro seasons on his r茅sum茅, Fletcher Cox wanted something more from his offseason after winning Super Bowl LII. He wanted to be faster on the field, and more agile, with better conditioning. He wanted to take his training to a new level, hopeful that the work there would show up on the football field. Three games into the 2018 season, Cox is dominating. Hes always dominated, but now hes really, really taking over games. Cox has three quarterback sacks, 15 quarterback hurries, and five tackles for loss http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/auth...y-jones-jersey , three key statistical categories in which he is already tracking well ahead of his career bests (9.5 sacks, 2015; 34 quarterback hurries, 2017; 14 tackles for loss, 2015).How Doug Pederson got a huge call to go Eagles way - NBCSPHolding calls on defensive linemen are pretty rare; its not something refs are probably super focused on during games. Theyre looking for holding from offensive linemen and from defensive backs. So Pedersons bringing it up to the officials likely put it on their radar.And it helped the Eagles when they really needed it.Eagles offensive line cant afford to get knocked for a loop while protecting Carson Wentz - Daily NewsOne is the offensive line gets beat, sack. It happens, Pederson said. Second one is, quarterback hangs on to the ball or tries to scramble, gets sacked. The third one is flat-out coverage. They got you wired and youre trying to extend the play. So a little bit of all three of those [Sunday] with the five sacks. Couple situations, maybe just throw the ball away and skip it and not put yourself in that situation. But theyre all teachable and correctable and well learn from them. Wentz, who hadnt played since Dec. 10, certainly seemed to be holding the ball longer than was optimal Womens Rasul Douglas Jersey , and was not quite as crisp in his decision-making as he will be once he gets used to playing again. But the Colts have a big, strong defensive front, with athletic linebackers who can shoot gaps. Particularly in the second half, they won more battles against the Eagles vaunted offensive line than is usually the case.
