Essendon v West Coast - The Age

In honor of Babe Ruth’s 125th birthday, here’s the All-Guys Nicknamed Babe Team. And at last an answer to the question you’ve always wondered: Who had more bWAR, Babe Ruth, or the combined total of the 30 other players called Babe?

Happy birthday, Babe Ruth! The Big Fella would have turned 125 years old today, and if he were somehow with us I bet he could still turn around a fastball.
In honor of the Babe, what would the All-Babe Team look like? And who had more Wins Above Replacement according to Baseball Reference (bWAR): Babe Ruth, or the combined total of the 30 other guys who also had the nickname Babe?
I'm not including the various players with nicknames derived from Baby, the 1950s player Loren Babe, or Samuel Byrd -- who, as a frequent pinch-runner and defensive replacement for the Bambino, had the nickname "Babe Ruth's Legs." These are just players nicknamed Babe — whether in honor of Ruth or for unrelated or unknown reasons — according to Baseball Reference.
Lineup: CF Babe Ganzel: 0.4 bWAR SS Babe Pinelli: 5.7 bWAR RF Babe Herman: 40.3 bWAR LF Babe Ruth: 162.1 bWAR DH Babe Phelps: 14.0 bWAR 1B Babe Young: 11.3 bWAR 3B Babe Dahlgren: 4.2 bWAR 2B Babe Ellison: -0.9 bWAR C Babe Roof: 3.3 bWAR
Ganzel had a career .378 OBP so we'll bat him lead-off. Pinelli -- who was more of a third baseman, but did have 71 games at shortstop -- is your old-school bunt/slap hitter in the 2 hole. Herman should see a lot of fastballs hitting in front of the Colossus of Clout. Of course Ruth hit third for the Murderer's Row Yankees — that’s why he wore #3 — but we'll bat him clean-up here. Phelps will start against righties, but we may have to platoon him. Young should flourish as the six hitter. Dahlgren was primarily a first baseman, but we need him at third. Ellison was a terrible hitter but we don't have another second baseman on the roster. Roof is your typical good glove/bad bat catcher so we'll bat him 9th.
Bench: 1B Babe Borton: 3.8 bWAR OF Babe Twombly: 0.3 bWAR C Babe Wilber: 0.2 bWAR C Babe Towne: 0.1 bWAR 1B Babe Danzig: 0.0 bWAR OF Babe Klee: 0.0 bWAR OF Babe Bigelow: -0.2 bWAR 1B Babe Butka: -0.4 bWAR OF Babe Martin: -0.6 bWAR OF Babe Barna: -0.7 bWAR OF Babe Nelson: -1.0 bWAR
Borton’s really the only Babe on the bench we’d want to use as a pinch hitter.
Pitching Staff: P Babe Adams: 52.2 bWAR P Babe Ruth: 20.3 bWAR P Babe Marchildon: 9.5 bWAR P Babe Klieman: 5.1 bWAR P Babe Birrer: 0.9 bWAR P Babe Meers: 0.9 bWAR P Babe Linke: 0.9 bWAR P Babe Doty: 0.5 bWAR P Babe Davis: 0.2 bWAR P Babe Sherman: -0.2 bWAR P Babe Picone: -0.3 bWAR
Our top two are formidable, with the right-handed Adams and the lefty Ruth, but it gets ugly quick. Marchildon had 162 starts in the bigs, going 68-75 with a respectable 3.93 ERA, but 5.1 BB/9. Kleiman was 26-28 with 33 saves and a 3.49 ERA. After that... well... maybe we'll go with the "opener" strategy.
Now lets take a look at them, Babe by Babe:
OF/P Babe Ruth: 182.4 bWAR
According to Baseball Reference, The Bambino had 162.1 bWAR as a batter and 20.3 bWAR as a pitcher... which is the second-highest pitching bWAR of any Babe in baseball history. Almost all his value as a pitcher came in just two seasons, 1916 (8.8) and 1917 (6.5) -- ages 21 and 22. In those two seasons, he had a combined 47-25 record with 650.0 IP, 1.88 ERA, and 1.077 WHIP.
George Herman Ruth -- who usually was called "Jidge" by his teammates, a funny mispronunciation of George -- picked up the nickname Babe when he was an 18-year-old prospect with the minor league Baltimore Orioles in 1913. There are several origin stories for the famous nickname... some say because he had a round baby face, others because he was so naive and rambunctious he was like an overgrown baby, and some because Orioles manager Jack Dunn doted on him like his own child.
People usually think of Babe Ruth as a right fielder, but he played almost as many games in left (1,048) as he did in right (1,130)... not to mention 74 games in center field, 32 at first base, and 163 at pitcher. In fact, Ruth almost always played left field except in stadiums that had a big left field -- like Yankee Stadium! Almost all of Ruth's career games in right field were at Yankee Stadium, Cleveland's League Park, and Washington D.C.'s Griffith Stadium. Everywhere else, he almost always played left field.
P Babe Adams: 52.2 bWAR
The second-best Babe was a star pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates during the deadball era, going 194-140 with a 2.76 ERA and 1.092 WHIP over a 19-year career. He was renowned for his control, walking just 430 men in 2,995.1 career innings — 1.29 BB/9. To put that in perspective, Greg Maddux had a 1.79 BB/9. Charles Adams was known as Babe several years before George Herman got the nickname. He picked it up in the minors in 1907 or 1908, supposedly because the female fans in Louisville were so enamored with his beautiful baby face.
OF/1B Babe Herman: 40.3 bWAR
Like Ruth and Adams, Floyd Herman picked up the nickname Babe in the minors. In 1921, the 18-year-old rookie with the Edmonton Eskimos in the Western Canada League introduced himself as Lefty, but his manager didn't like that -- too many players already named Lefty. After seeing Herman’s power in spring training, the giddy manager said: “You’re going to be my Babe,” as in Ruth. Over a 13-year MLB career, Herman hit .324/.383/.532 with 181 HR and 997 RBI. Such great numbers, why only 40.3 bWAR? Herman was a famously inept baserunner, and the source of an epic line from Ring Lardner: "Babe Herman did not triple into a triple play, but he doubled into a double play, which is the next best thing." He was even worse as a fielder -- in 1928, many decades before Jose Canseco, a fly ball bounced off his head. Years later, a sportswriter asked Herman about the play, and he said the story was all wrong: "The ball actually hit me in the shoulder!” I'm... not sure that's better. His defensive WAR was -9.7!
C Babe Phelps: 14.0 bWAR
The 6'2", 225-pound Ernest Phelps got the nickname Babe because of his resemblance, both in terms of body size and his face, to Ruth. Like Ruth, put on weight as he got older... by the end of his career, he was sometimes called "Blimp." A left-handed hitting catcher, Phelps hit a respectable .310/.362/.472 over an 11-year career.
1B Babe Young: 11.3 bWAR
Like several others on this list, Norman Robert Young lost some prime years to World War II. From 1939 to 1942, ages 23 through 26, the first baseman hit .277/.359/.454 in 424 games for a .813 OPS, accounting for 8.9 of his career 11.3 bWAR. He missed the next three seasons as he was in the U.S. Coast Guard, returning in 1946 at the age of 30. I can't find the origin story of his nickname, but as a left-handed slugger who played for Fordham University in the Bronx in the 1930s, I can guess it was in honor of the Bambino.
P Babe Marchildon: 9.5 bWAR
There are several people on this list who we can't even guess as to how they picked up the nickname Babe. This is definitely one of them. Babe was a most unlikely moniker for Philip Joseph Marchildon, a 5'10", 170-pound right-handed Canadian pitcher who lived a very tough life. Born in Ontario, he didn't play baseball until he was in high school, then got a job working in a nickel mine. At the age of 25, pitching for a semi-pro team, he went to a try-out with the minor league Toronto Maple Leafs; Marchildon struck out seven of the nine batters he faced, then drove back to Sudbury to resume life as a miner. As the story goes, the manager drove all the way to Sudbury to find him, dragged him out of the elevator just before it descended into the depths, and forced him right then and there to sign a baseball contract. Presumably because of his time as a miner, Marchildon had incredible strength in his fingers, enabling him to throw a fastball with remarkable movement... but he also struggled to control it, and often was among the league leaders in walks, wild pitches, and hit batters. In 1942, Marchildon joined the Royal Canadian Air Force as a tail gunner on a bomber. Two years later, his bomber was shot down over Denmark. Marchildon and only one other crewmember survived; they were captured by the Germans and sent to Stalag Luft III, the prison camp made famous by the movie The Great Escape. After the war, Marchildon returned to baseball, but those who had known him before and after said the war had changed him, and he was long tormented by nightmares about what he'd endured. Marchildon, who went 68-75 with a 3.93 ERA and 1.456 WHIP in a nine-year career, is a member both the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame.
IF Babe Pinelli: 5.7 bWAR
If only umpires accumulated bWAR! Rinaldo Angelo Paolinelli (he would later change it to the more American-sounding Ralph Pinelli) was born in San Francisco in 1895 -- the same years as Ruth -- to Italian immigrants. (His father was killed by a falling telephone pole in the Great 1906 San Francisco Earthquake.) As a boy, he loved to play baseball, but the older boys wouldn't let him, and taunted him as "Babe" (as in baby) when he cried about it. Eventually they let him play, and he proved to be good enough that he would have an eight-year career in the bigs, hitting .276/.328/.346 in 2,617 ABs primarily as a third baseman for the Reds. After his career ended, Pinelli became an umpire; it's believed he was the first Italian-American umpire in MLB history when he made his debut in 1935. Pinelli was behind the plate for Don Larsen's perfect Game 5 in the 1956 World Series, and retired after Game 7. He wrote the first autobiography by an umpire, Mr. Ump, and was known as "The Lou Gehrig of Umpires" because he claimed he never missed a game in his 22-year career. He wasn't always on time, though: In 1941, Pinelli's umpiring crew was taking a boat from New York to Boston, and got lost in the fog. The first inning was umpired by the players, but the umpires arrived for the 2nd inning. Boston's manager was Casey Stengel, and from then on whenever Pinelli missed a call, Stengel would holler: "You're still fogbound!"
P Babe Klieman: 5.1 bWAR
We don't know why Edward Frederick Klieman was called Babe, but he also was called Specs and you can see why. Klieman was a swing-man for the Indians in the 1940s, going 26-28 with 33 saves and a 3.49 ERA in eight seasons.
1B Babe Dahlgren: 4.2 bWAR
Ellsworth Tenney Dahlgren was born in San Francisco in 1912, two years before Ruth made his MLB debut. His stepfather dubbed him "Babe" after the Sultan of Swat. Dahlgren actually followed in Ruth's footsteps, making his debut for the Red Sox in 1935 and then a few years later joining the rival New York Yankees, and later in his career played for the Boston Braves. Dahlgren famously replaced Lou Gehrig at first base when the Iron Horse ended his consecutive games played streak. He hit .261/.329/.383 over his 12-year career.
1B Babe Borton: 3.8 bWAR
A deadball era first baseman, it's unknown how William Baker Borton was dubbed Babe, but he was known by that nickname in 1913, a year before Ruth. A seldom-used reserve for the White Sox and Yankees, Borton jumped to the Federal League in 1915. That season, playing for the St. Louis Terriers, he would hit a respectable .286 with a .395 OBP (leading the league with 92 walks!). After the Federal League folded, Borton returned to MLB and would hit .224/.350/.306 in just 98 ABs, and then like many other former Federal League players was released. He would keep playing professionally in the Pacific Coast League, but in 1920 -- the same year the Black Sox scandal was unveiled -- the 30-year-old Borton was caught in a scheme trying to fix games, and booted from professional baseball.
C Babe Roof: 3.3 bWAR
The last MLB player with the nickname Babe was Phil Roof, who also had the grand nickname of the Duke of Paducah. Roof was a light-hitting catcher, putting up a .215/.283/.319 line in 2,151 career ABs... and yet he had a good enough glove to have a 15-year MLB career, retiring in 1977 at the age of 36. Babe Roof hit 43 home runs in his 15-year career... which means he averaged less than three a year.
P Babe Birrer: 0.9 bWAR
A pitcher in the 1950s, Werner Joseph Birrer posted a career 4.36 ERA and 1.387 WHIP in 119.2 career innings over three seasons. I can only imagine the disappointment of a little boy opening a pack of Bowman Cards and finding not a Mantle or a Mays but a Birrer. But for all that, Birrer did have one shining moment, and how he got the nickname Babe. On July 19, 1955, Birrer pitched four shutout innings in relief... and hit not one but two three-run home runs. A pitcher who hits home runs, naturally he was given the nickname Babe!
P Babe Meers: 0.9 bWAR
Russell Harlan Meers was a left-handed pitcher for the Cubs who pitched in one game in 1941 -- taking the loss despite giving up just one earned run and five hits in 8 innings -- and then of course World War II happened. He would spend 1942-1945 in the U.S. Navy. After the war he'd pitch another two seasons with the Cubs, then bounce around a few more years in the minors. In his MLB career, he went 3-3 with a 3.98 ERA and 1.482 WHIP. He threw hard, but had fantastically bad control... as a 20-year-old rookie in the Mountain State League in 1939, he walked 191 batters in 227 innings!
P Babe Linke: 0.9 bWAR
Edward Karl Linke posted a 5.61 ERA and 1.695 WHIP but somehow lasted six years in the bigs. Maybe he kept getting chances because he threw a no-hitter in the minors as a 20-year-old in 1932. Linke's career very nearly ended in 1935, when he was hit in the face by a line drive; it hit him so hard that it bounced off his forehead and went back to the catcher, who caught it on the fly and threw to second for a double play! Linke was hospitalized for two days, but returned to baseball (and would win eight of his nine decisions after that). Unfortunately we don't know why he was called Babe.
P Babe Doty: 0.5 bWAR
The original Babe according to baseball-reference.com, Elmer L. Doty was born in 1867. He had just one MLB appearance, but it was a pretty good one -- a complete game win for the Toledo Maumees, allowing just one run and one walk while fanning four against the Brooklyn Bridgerooms. He would continue to pitch semi-pro and minor league ball for a few more years before becoming a woodworker. Alas, he may be the original Babe, but we don't know why they called him that; quite possibly it was because he was just 22 years old when he made his debut.
OF Babe Ganzel: 0.4 bWAR
He was born Foster Pirie Ganzel, so I understand why he wanted a nickname, but I don't know why it was Babe. He had two brief stints in the majors, hitting .311/.378/.473 in 74 career ABs; but the outfielder had a long minor league career, beginning as a 21-year-old in 1922 and ending as a 41-year-old in 1942. He was later a minor league manager; one time in response to criticism from fans that he never told his players to bunt, he ordered his first nine batters to do so. All nine reached base safely. I guess the fans were right!
OF Babe Twombly: 0.3 bWAR
Clarence Edward Twombly played two years for the Chicago Cubs, 1920-1921, hitting .304/.357./366 in 358 career ABs. We can speculate he got the nickname Babe because he was the baby brother to another major leaguer, George, who played five seasons between 1914 and 1919 (hitting .211/.289/.247 in 417 ABs). Interestingly enough, big brother George was playing for the minor league Baltimore Orioles in 1914 when he was stricken by appendicitis, and he was replaced in the lineup by a baby-faced rookie named... Babe Ruth. Later that year, the Reds were given the opportunity to purchase two players from the Orioles roster; instead of Ruth, they took George Twombly and a former major league infielder named Claud Derrick. Later that year, the Red Sox were given the same deal and they took Ruth and Ernie Shore.
C Babe Wilber: 0.2 bWAR
If not for World War 2, maybe Delbert Quentin Wilber would have been higher on this list. As an infant, his mother called him "Babe" and it stuck. Wilber made his minor league debut as a 19-year-old catcher in the St. Louis Browns system in 1938, hitting .304 with a .490 SLG in 398 ABs, and he'd follow that up hitting .308 with a .472 SLG in 435 ABs in 1940. But three months after Pearl Harbor, Wilber found himself at the Jefferson Barracks Army Air Force Base in Missouri. He entered the war as a private and left it as a captain, spending most of that time on military bases as a playemanager for baseball teams often loaded with MLB stars. He would finally reach the Show as a 27-year-old in 1946, getting a cup of coffee with the St. Louis Cardinals. Over his eight-year career, Wilber would hit .242/.286/.389 in 720 ABs.
P Babe Davis: 0.2 bWAR
Born in 1913 -- one month after the inauguration of the 28th president -- Woodrow Wilson Davis pitched in just two MLB games, giving up one run on three hits (but four walks) for the Detroit Tigers in 1938. He did have seven years in the minors, going 50-55 in 190 games across six different leagues, but like many others on this list his professional baseball career was derailed by World War II, serving in the U.S. Navy. I can't find a source for the nickname Babe, but he obviously liked the nickname -- after baseball, he founded "Babe's Mighty Mites," a baseball and softball youth program in Wayne County, Georgia.
C Babe Towne: 0.1 bWAR
A catcher for 14 games for the Chicago White Sox in 1906, Jay King Towne went 10-for-36 with seven walks (.395 OBP) and had a pinch-hit appearance in the 1906 World Series, but apparently that wasn't good enough to bring him back to the bigs the following season. He had a long minor league career, though, starting as a 22-year-old catcher for the Rock Rapids Browns in the Iowa-South Dakota League in 1902 and ending as a 36-year-old playemanager of the Fort Dodge Dodgers in the Central Association in 1916. In 1911, he hit .366 for the Sioux City Packers of the Western League! Like many others, I can't find the origin of the nickname Babe, but he had it years before Ruth did.
1B Babe Danzig: 0.0 bWAR
Harold Paul Danzig went 2-for-13 in his only MLB season, in 1909 with the Boston Red Sox. Danzig would spend a total of nine years in professional baseball, playing in the Pacific Coast League, the New England League (hitting .345 for Lowell Tigers in 232 AB), the Southern Association, and the Empire State League. Danzig -- born eight years before Ruth, and making his MLB debut while Ruth was a 14-year-old boy at St. Mary's School for Boys -- reportedly picked up the nickname Babe because of his large size as a youth, in reference to Paul Bunyan's blue ox!
OF Babe Klee: 0.0 bWAR
Ollie Chester Klee appeared in just three MLB games, all with the Cincinnati Reds in 1925. On August 10th, he replaced future Hall of Famer Edd Roush in center field in the 7th inning of a 10-6 game against the Brooklyn Robins; he would then lead off against Dazzy Vance in the 9th, and strike out. (Vance would strike out the side, going the distance in the 13-7 victory.) On August 14 and August 26, the 25-year-old got into games as a pinch runner, but didn't get to bat or field... or even advance a base. Klee had been a star halfback at the Ohio State University and later was a high school football coach. Unfortunately, we don't know when or why he picked up the nickname Babe.
OF Babe Bigelow: -0.2 bWAR
Maybe the Boston Red Sox thought they'd reversed the curse in 1929 when they signed a left-handed power hitter nicknamed Babe. Elliot Allardice Bigelow had been a minor league sensation, tearing up the Florida State League, the South Atlantic League, and the Southern Association. Between 1924 and 1928, his lowest batting average was .349. Supposedly the right-field fence in Chattanooga was so deep that only three balls had ever been hit over it... two of them by Bigelow. Of course if he'd played today, they'd call him Bam-Bam, but in 1926, you call a guy like that Babe. In Boston, the 31-year-old rookie would hit a respectable .284 with a .357 OBP, but only one home run in 211 ABs. In addition to his lack of power, his other problem was, in those pre-DH days, Bigelow was just too slow and awkward to play the field. After one season in the Show, he returned to the minors to terrorize the pitchers of the Southern Association. In 12 seasons in the minors -- 1,473 games -- Bigelow hit .349!
P Babe Sherman: -0.2 bWAR
Lester Daniel Sherman had twice as many nicknames -- Babe or General -- as he did games played. He pitched in just one game, facing three batters -- getting one out and walking two -- as a 23-year-old pitcher for Chicago in the Federal League in 1914. He would pitch sporadically in the minors after that, going 10-15 in 44 games. Maybe they called him Babe because of his youth, or his size -- he was listed at 5'6" and 145 pounds.
P Babe Picone: -0.3 bWAR
Another guy who we don't know where the nickname came from. Mario Peter Picone played pro ball for 13 seasons, but had only 40 innings in the bigs, scattered between 1947 and 1954. The righty went 0-2 with a 6.30 ERA and 1.700 WHIP in three starts and 10 relief appearances.
1B Babe Butka: -0.4 bWAR
A war-time replacement, Edward Luke Butka hit just .220 in 50 ABs between 1943 and 1944. He got the nickname Babe as a teenager playing semi-pro baseball in Pennsylvania in the 1930s because of his impressive home run power. Butka, the son of Polish immigrants, wanted to fight in World War II but was ruled 4-F because of a punctured ear drum; he tried to enlist more than once, but was always turned away. After the veteran players returned from the war, Butka kicked around the minors for awhile and later became a player-manager.
OF Babe Martin: -0.6 bWAR
Boris Michael Martinovich was born in 1920, the son of a Montenegro-born professional wrestler known as Iron Mike Martin. The youngest of five children, Boris was called Baby for years, and the nickname stuck; when he grew into a man, it soon became the more baseball-friendly nickname of Babe. He spent most of his professional career in the minors, though he did get 185 at-bats with the St. Louis Browns in 1945, hitting .200/.245/.281. In Double-A in 1944, he hit .350/.418/.580 in 386 AB, and in Triple-A in 1947 he hit .319/.383/.555.
OF Babe Barna: -0.7 bWAR
Herbert Paul Barna was a three-sport star at West Virginia University in the 1930s, excelling in football, basketball, and baseball; the Philadelphia Eagles wanted him, but instead he signed with the Philadelphia Athletics. West Virginia University also was where he got the nickname Babe, presumably because of his size (6'2", 210 pounds) and because he was a left-handed power hitter. The outfielder may have had a better career in the NFL, as he hit .232/.311/.346 in five MLB seasons.
UT Babe Ellison: -0.9 bWAR
Herbert Spencer Ellison would hit .216/.282/.284 in 348 AB between 1916 and 1920; despite his poor hitting, he was a useful utility man, seeing time at every position except pitcher and catcher! After a standout freshman year for the University of Arkansas baseball team, at the age of 18 he turned pro, playing for the Clinton Pilots in the Central Association. We can speculate he got the name Babe because he was so very young. A year later he would make his MLB debut with the Detroit Tigers, where he'd play his entire five-year MLB career. After that, he would be a star in the Pacific Coast League; he and Babe Pinelli were teammates on the 1927 San Francisco Seals. It's possible he was known as Babe before that other Babe was too widely known; we can speculate he got the nickname because he was so young when he turned pro.
OF Babe Nelson: -1.0 bWAR
Another big left-handed outfielder, Robert Sidney Nelson hit just .205/.295/.254 in 122 AB with the Baltimore Orioles between 1955 and 1957. He got the nickname Babe because of his prodigious power in high school -- he was known as "The Babe Ruth of Texas." After he joined the Orioles, he was given another nickname -- Tex -- by his roommate, future Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson. Nelson was pretty much on the bench for three years, then went to the minors where he had some good seasons, but some bad ones too. He was out of baseball in 1961, at the age of 24. He would never hit a home run in the bigs, but he did have 75 of them in the minors.
And finally... Who had more bWAR, Babe Ruth, or the 30 other Babes combined?
Babe Ruth: 182.4 bWAR 30 Other Babes: 149.5 bWAR
The King of Crash also is the King of Babes!

[Game Preview] Week 12 - Chicago Bears (3-7) at Philadelphia Eagles(9-1)

Chicago Bears (3-7) at Philadelphia Eagles (9-1)
The Eagles comfortably lead the division handily beating the rival Cowboys last Sunday night in dominant fashion and an additional loss by the Cowboys on Thanksgiving football gives the Eagles a 4 game lead in the division. They need to be careful this Sunday as they head into a potential trap game facing the 3-7 Chicago Bears before their West Coast road trip against the Rams and Seahawks. The Bears have played teams tough this season with a young defense and a strong running attack from Pro Bowler Jordan Howard. They also have tough wins against the 8-2 Steelers and 7-3 Panthers. The Eagles are on an 8 game winning streak and have been laser focused including scoring 30+ points in their last four games. Pederson should be able to maintain his team’s focus against Chicago and continue their recent dominance in the series. Philadelphia has won 8 of its last 12 games vs. Chicago (including playoffs). The Eagles have won each of the last 2 games in the series, most recently defeating the Bears, 29-14, on Monday Night Football in Week 2 of 2016. The record shouldn’t be looked at here as the Bears won’t go away easily and we should have a good game Sunday at the Linc.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Video – The Eagles came out of the bye slow and did not play their best football in the first half as they trailed the rival Cowboys 9-7 at halftime Sunday night. After a halftime pep talk and some midgame adjustments the Eagles game out firing on all cylinders in the second half as they put up 30 points while shutting out the Cowboys in the second half. The Eagles had a balanced attack on offense as Carson threw for two 2 TDs and the Eagles rushing attacked put up 215 yards rushing. The Eagles defense also played well as they picked up Dak Prescott 3 times and forced a fumble while not allowing any TDs. Kicker Jake Elliott left the game early forcing the Eagles into going for it on 2 point conversions and 4th downs and backup LB Kamu Grugier-Hill was forced into kickoff duties and did register a touchback.
Bears - Video – The Bears also must pulled up another upset last week when they took on rival Detroit Loins The Bears rallied to tie Sunday's game against the Lions in the fourth quarter, but they came up short—actually wide—when the contest was on the line in the final seconds. The Bears rallied in the 4th quarter, but in position to force overtime Bears kicker missed a 46 yard field goal wide right. The miss came after rookie QB Mitch Trubisky made orchestrated a drive with 1:35 left in regulation to give Barth a shot to tie it. The Bears ran for 222 yards in the game between Howard and rookies Trubisky and Cohn and their defense held the Lions to 65 yards rushing and forced a fumble on the opening series.

Stats to Know
Da Bearss' Interior Run Defense
[The Bears' Run Defense is under-rated. While they're 12th-best in yards allowed per game, the DL features two Interior Defenders in the top 10 in Run Stop % (Unrein, at 12.1%, and Hicks, at 11.3%)--Courtesy of PFF Elite
Matchups to Watch
Eagles Defense vs. Bears Running Game
The Bears run a very balanced offense, perhaps out of necessity. On the season, the Bears run the ball 48.2% of the time, second most in the NFL. Second year running back Jordan Howard continues to be a leader in rushing after his outstanding rookie year. Howard is presently 3rd in the NFL with 841 yards on the season. Additionally, the Bears will incorporate rookie Tarik Cohen in to the game plan. Cohen is basically a rookie Darren Sproles. He is an explosive runner and playmaker that the Bears will use to stretch the defense. They can be dynamic when they are on field at the same time. The Eagles enter the game with the top ranked rush defense in the NFL again. The Bears will look to pound the ball in this game, it is a part of their DNA. It also helps that they are very weak at Wide Receiver and their running backs are the only real weapons the offense has. The Eagles defense will need to play responsibly up front to account for the variety of looks they will see from the Bears on Sunday.
Eagles Defensive Front vs. Mitch Trubisky
As previously mentioned the Bears offense lacks a lot of weapons outside to really help their rookie QB through the air. The coaching staff has had to be creative with their game plans to move the ball. They'll move Trubisky out of the pocket on passes. Trubisky is also a threat to run the ball and run well. The Eagles defensive front is the best defensive front Trubisky will play in his young career. They bring the heat and they will hit him as a runner if he isn't smart. The Eagles defense will need to make sure it contains Trubisky as a runner like they have with every other mobile QB they have seen on the season.
Eagles Passing Attack vs Bears Defense
The Bears won't bring any elite CBs to Philly for the game but enter with a good defense against the pass and some good, young safeties. Presently, the Bears passing defense is currently ranked 12th per DVOA. Danny Trevethan is one of the premier LBs in coverage in the NFL. The Bears also have PFFs second ranked safety in Adrian Amos and stand out rookie safety Eddie Jackson, who is PFFs 27th ranked safety on the season. All three players can be problematic for opposing offenses and will test the Eagles. This might be a game where we see the Eagles feature Alshon and Agholor in the game plan to take advantage of the Bears weaker corners, as compared to their safeties. The Bears pass rush is also pretty solid, especially on the interior, and should be pretty difficult for the offensive line to content with.
Eagles Rushing Attack vs Bears Defense
The Eagles will enter the game fresh off the beat down in Dallas that saw the Eagles rush for over 200 yards on the Cowboys. The Bears enter the game with the 16th ranked run defense per DVOA. Even with standout LB Jerrell Freeman, the Bears rushing defense has performed admirably. They feature two good interior defensive linemen in Akiem Hicks (14th per PFF) and Mark Unrein (21st per PFF). Eddie Goldman is also a part of the rotation and together they help limit opposing rushing attacks to 3.8 YPC. The Eagles offensive game plans are geared to get the run game open to help out the pass. The offensive line will be stressed in this game, especially along the interior.

[Game Preview] Week 16 - Oakland Raiders (6-8) at Philadelphia Eagles(12-2)

Oakland Raiders (6-8) at Philadelphia Eagles (12-2)
A week after losing Carson Wentz for the year, St. Nick game out firing on all cylinders throwing for 4 TDs and 237 yards as the Eagles won a close one against the division rival Giants, where the defense forgot to show up. Luckily for the Eagles the Offense and Special Teams were able to carry them to a 34-29 win, but they will need to clean it up and play better as they move into the playoffs. They will try to clean it up this week against the Oakland Raiders on Holiday Monday Night Football. The Eagles are hoping to bring the Raiders some coal for Christmas wearing their all-blacks and end their playoff hopes while locking up home field advantage throughout the playoffs forcing the NFC Championship to come through the City of Brotherly Love. The Raiders are not going to make it an easy task, their playoff hopes are dangling by the thread with zero room for error. They have play makers on both side of the ball, so the Eagles can’t be sloppy like last week and need to figure out a way to stop the slant or they are going to end up having to wait a week to clinch home field.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Video – Eli Manning’s slantfest returned to haunt the Eagles as the CBs had no answer to the route all day and Eli gashed the Eagles for 434 yard and 3 TDs through the air, though he did throw a costly pick to Ronald Darby that led to an Eagles score. Luckily for the Eagles D and the Eagles offense and Special Teams picked up the slack as the ST blocked a Field, Punt and Extra Point and the St. Nick took advantage of great field position to throw for 237 yards, 4 TDs and 0 INTs in the 34-29 series sweeping win. The win locked up a 1st round bye for the Birds as they hold all the tie breakers at this point.
Raiders - Video – An index card made more news than the game did in this one as the Cowboys kept their slim playoff hopes alive by sneaking away with a 20-17 win on a Dan Bailey Field Goal. The Raiders had a chance to pull out the win late after rookie Jourdan Lewis committed a 43 yard PI on a 4th and 10. However, Carr made a costly mistake after a scramble as he reached for the endzone fumbling the ball into the back of the endzone with just 30 second left to go in the game.

Philadelphia owns the best record (12-2) in the NFL this season. The Eagles have started 12-2 or better for just the second time in franchise history, having previously done so in 2004 (13-1).
In Week 14 at L.A. Rams, Philadelphia clinched its 10th NFC East title and 25th all-time postseason appearance. The last time the Eagles clinched the division crown in Week 14 or earlier was in 2004 (clinched in Week 12).
In Week 15 at N.Y. Giants, Philadelphia secured a first round bye in the playoffs, marking just the sixth instance since 1970 that they accomplished the feat.
Philadelphia is tied with L.A. Rams for the NFL-lead with 31.3 points per game. Only twice before have the Eagles finished the season averaging 30+ points per game: 1948 (31.3) and 1949 (30.3).

Stats to Know
Pressuring Derek Carr
So far, in 2017, the Raiders Offensive Line has given up the 4th-fewest pressures (112) and has the 2nd-best Pass Blocking Efficiency Rating--The Pro Football Focus "Pass Blocking Efficiency" rating measures pressure allowed on a per-snap basis with weighting toward sacks allowed. Their starting Guards ranked in the top 15 in Pass Blocking Grades (Osemele: 9th, Jackson: 14th) and far-and-away the top-ranked Center in Pass Blocking (Hudson). At the OT position, Penn and Newhouse are ranked 22nd and 31st in pressures allowed--although Penn has been lost for the season--and 32nd and 59th in positional Pass Blocking Grades. The Eagles' Interior Defenders will have their work cut out for them, but expect the Eagles to attack the edge, especially with Penn out.
Derek Carr has been under pressure the 2nd-lowest % of dropbacks (25.8), with the 6th-best (lowest) sack rate when under pressure (13.7%). The trouble is, Carr's also thrown the 2nd-most interceptions (7) and has the 4th-worst NFL QB Rating when under pressure (50.4). The Eagles have faced the Raiders quick passing game twice this season and underperformed defending that approach. Well, Derek Carr has the quickest time to throw of all QBs (2.33s, Eli's 2nd). He's thrown 15 TDs to 5 INTS when getting rid of the ball in under 2.5 seconds (65.9% of the time, 2nd-highest). --Courtesy of PFF Elite|
Matchups to Watch
Eagles Pass Defense vs. Raiders Pass Offense
Just as we all expected Nick Foles carried the defense in a great debut against the Giants. For the Eagles to have any kind of real hope to make a run with Foles this season they are going to need their secondary to stop doing their best Bradley Fletcher impersonation. The Eagles allowed back up QB Eli Manning to complete 65% of his passes for 434 and 3 touchdowns. The Giants offense is among the worst in the league and had their best performance of the season against the Eagles. One thing that was very concerning, especially early, was the lack of urgency and passion from the defense to start the game. It's possible everyone overlooked the fact the Eagles came off of two emotional playoff-like games on the West Coast and thought they could simply cruise through the Giants. Nope. The Raiders have been struggling all year but do have a better offense than the Giants. And if the Eagles kryptonite is the quick passing game, then Christmas is going to suck. The Raiders will entered the game with the 11th ranked offense per DVOA on the season, 11th through the air and 13th on the ground. Derek Carr also has the second lowest time from snap to throw in the league. The entire Oakland passing game is built in the quick passing game. Michael Crabtree is a very good receiver, especially in the red zone. Amari Cooper is another dangerous weapon for the Raiders if he plays, even if he is having a horrible season. The secondary needs to turn around the leaky trend it has shown the last few games for the Eagles to win this game.
Eagles Defensive Line vs. Raiders Offensive Line
While the Raiders offensive line may not be performing to the level it did last year it is still a strong unit at every position. Kelechi Osemele and Gabe Jackson are freaks at the guard positions and are always looking to physically dominate their opponents on the interior. Rodney Hudson is having another good season for the Raiders at center. These 3 lineman are among the best interior groupings in the NFL. The Raiders offensive line suffered a big blow last week losing LT Donald Penn to IR. Penn has been a regular starter for several years before going down and will really test the Raiders offensive line on the edges against one of the best defensive lines in football. One thing that does help the Raiders is their passing game is built on quick plays which will logically slow down the Eagles rush. Where the Raiders could struggle is in the run game against the best run defense in the NFL. Marshawn Lynch hasn't lit the league on fire after returning to the league, but is still averaging 4.3 YPC on the season and is just as physical as he has ever been. The combination of the Raiders offensive line and Marshawn Lynch are a very good test for the Eagles defense moving forward. The have to ensure the Raiders offense is one dimensional all game long. That won't be easy as the Raiders offensive line is very physical as is Marshawn Lynch.
Eagles Offensive Tackles vs Raiders EDGE Rushers
All season long the Eagles tackles have had to face the league’s best EDGE rushers and have more than held their own. This week presents another huge test for Vaitai and Johnson as Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin are as formidable a grouping as there is in the league. Mack is one of the league’s best players and the reigning Defensive Player of the Year. He's a freak of nature and a true game wrecker. Bruce Irvin is another good edge rusher for the Raiders. On the season, Bruce Irvin is the 51st ranked EDGE rusher per PFF. Neither guy sticks to one side on defense as the Raiders will move them along the line. It will be fun to watch Mack go up against Lane Johnson but it won't be fun to watch Vaitai go up against Mack at some point. Both tackles will need to bring the best on Monday night since these two rushers, especially Mack, can destroy a game.
Eagles Offense vs Raiders Defense
The Eagles offense enters this Christmas matchup with the 4th ranked offensive per DVOA in the NFL. Through 15 weeks they are the 2nd ranked passing offense and 15h ranked rushing defense per DVOA. The addition of Jay Ajayi has helped solidify a great rushing attack while all of the Eagles receivers continue to be good and reliable weapons in the passing game. Enter the Raiders defense which is nothing short of horrendous on the season. The Raiders enter the game with the 32nd ranked defense per DVOA in the NFL. They are 32nd against the pass and 18th against the rush on the season. While Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin are excellent defenders against the run as well as the pass, the rest of the Raiders defense struggles in both areas. The Raiders enter with the 52nd and 74th ranked LBs in the NFL. Signing Navarro Bowman has been important for the Raiders as he is presently the 18th ranked LB in the NFL and their only good LB against the run. Additionally, the Raiders defensive line up the middle is pretty soft against the run. Their most notable issues have come via the passing game as the Raiders only have 4 interceptions as a team this year. Two of those interceptions came off the incredibly overrated Dak Prescott last week. The Raiders struggle producing turnovers and stopping offenses. It'll be important for the Eagles offense to keep their foot on the gas and play smart, not allowing the Raiders defense to have any glimmer of hope. If the Eagles offense plays to the level it has shown through the first 15 weeks of the season then it'll be a long night for the Raiders defense.
