Blake Cashman Shines; Eagles Game Observations

Recommended Posts

Blake Cashman

– Coming out party for Blake Cashman as he was everywhere all night. Displaying his speed in coverage, forcing a fumble and tackling everyone.  Over time can he push Neville Hewitt to start next to CJ Mosley?

– Bronson Kaufusi continued his excellent summer with a TFL and pushing the pocket.  In fact his pressure caused the PHI QB to rush the throw which became an INT by Marcus Cooper. 

– Solid game by Marcus Cooper as he had an INT and was reliable in his coverage responsibilities.  Displaying what you want to see in a #4/#5 CB, but will he survive the weekend pickups to come?

– Nice to see Josh Bellamy run solid routes with good hands as a WR.  He’s going to make the team because of his special teams ability, but in a pinch can he step in as an actual WR?

– It was a night of opportunities for Taylor Bertolet and he blew it.  You can’t go 2 for 5 the day before a couple of kickers are going to shake loose.

– Davis Webb continued his “Sanchezian” summer with two more INT’s. On his final one (falling back, with a sidearm flip) the camera focused on Adam Gase.  Who had a “what the bleep are you doing” look on his face.

– Luke Falk was solid and gave an indication he could develop into a long term backup.  But he’s got to improve his internal clock and get rid of the ball.  Too many times he held onto the ball too long and got smashed.

– The backup OLines provided decent pass protection.  Will the team keep any of them on the practice squad for continued development?

– Valentine Holmes displayed good hands/feet for a converted rugby player.  Will the team continue to develop him as a RB on the practice squad?

– Another practice squad candidate, Kyle Phillips had a good night with a couple of sacks and a TFL.  Will he be kept?

– One player who I think will definitely be gone is Nathan Shepherd. He got no reps, which isn’t a good sign if your spot is shaky

Blake Cashman reminds me alot of Chris Borland.  Just by looking at him, you can tell that he worked his tail off to prepare for this camp.  

He is the anti-Darron Lee.  Hopefully he does not play so hard that he literally knocks himself out, like Borland did.

Cashman is the proper Darron Lee type pick including where he was selected.  Which is what some of us said right off the bat regarding a speed ILB with some holes in his game.  Non premium position, want a speed ILB?  Mid rounds not 21st overall.

Ironic considering Lee was supposed to be the "money" backer that could be the versatile piece on the field and he's being replaced by a guy named Cashman. The universe really does work in strange ways.
