Panthers owner David Tepper promised
he was going to do things differently.And he’s hired for a position the Panthers have never employed.Via the team website Mike Wallace Jerseys 2019 , the Panthers have hired former Eagles staffer Taylor Rajack as their first director of football analytics.The 27-year-old, MIT-educated Rajack has spent the last five years with the Eagles.“Working there, we were very well researched in every decision we made. Trying to gain that edge,” Rajack said. “We wanted to understand the risks and understand the expectation with any decision to make smarter choices. Why would you ignore information that’s out there? It’s the idea of bringing all the pieces together.“In Philadelphia, we became identified as one of the more analytically inclined teams. That paved the way for me to get here and start something new.”The Panthers have had some people on staff dabbling in analytics, but Tepper made an emphasis of adding there, consistent with his whatever-it-takes approach to helping his football team. The head coach also relived a bit of his early playing days." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesBleeding Green Nation homepageHorizontal - WhiteBleeding Green Nationa Philadelphia Eagles communityFollow Bleeding Green Nation online:Follow Bleeding Green Nation on TwitterFollow Bleeding Green Nation on FacebookLog in or sign upLog InSign UpSite searchSearchSearchBleeding Green Nation main menuFanpostsFanshotsEaglesOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 321 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Eagles StoriesScheduleRosterStatsYahoo Eagles NewsYahoo Eagles Team PageYahoo Eagles ReportYahoo Eagles Depth ChartYahoo Eagles TransactionsYahoo Eagles PhotosOdds About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕Doug Pederson names five unheralded training camp standouts Black Nate Gerry Jerseys , gives injury update on Miles SandersNew,26commentsThe head coach also relived a bit of his early playing days.EDTShare this storyShare this on FacebookShare this on TwitterShareAll sharing optionsShareAll sharing options forBig Grinoug Pederson names five unheralded training camp standouts, gives injury update on Miles SandersTwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailThursday was the longest practice of Eagles training camp and head coach Doug Pederson spoke to the media afterwards about some of the unheralded players catching his attention. He also gave several injury updates.On standouts so farPederson was then asked if they were planning to cross-train Dillard on the right side at all, and the head coach said that they’re main focus is to get him comfortable where he’s at, but he does think the rookie is capable of going to the other side.The head coach was also asked to elaborate on the development of Agudosi and how he’s picking up route-running and other aspects of his position. Pederson said that everyday brings a new set of challenges for a young player like that, but that he is working his tail off in individual drills to improve.He also talked a bit about Greg Ward, and said that his time in the AAF was valuable experience for the receiver. Pederson noted that Ward is a guy who knows the Eagles system and the offense Nate Gerry Jerseys 2019 , and is getting comfortable in the slot and showing up on tape.On Miles SandersPederson was asked right away about Miles Sanders who was sidelined during Thursday’s practice, and the head coach noted that he’s “good” after suffering what he called a foot injury, but will undergo some additional evaluation.Additionally, Pederson mentioned that the thing that has impressed him most about the rookie running back so far is how he came back for training camp so in shape. After missing most of the spring with a hamstring issue, he didn’t miss a step upon his return. His conditioning was good, he kept his weight where they wanted him to be, and he’s been attacking each and every day. The head coach did acknowledge that they’ve been monitoring Sanders’ reps so they aren’t over-extending him.More injury updatesThe head coach also said that Mack Hollins is still working everyday and getting some individual work in Black Destiny Vaeao Jerseys , but that he does expect him working back into the 7-on-7 stuff in the next few days.Pederson gave DeSean Jackson a rest day on Thursday, but he did do some individual work.Linebacker Paul Worrilow is still working back from the ACL injury, and they’re still day-by-day with getting him healthy. But, Pederson said that he’s doing well.Similarly with Corey Clement, the running back was able to get in some work on 7-on-7 on Thursday for the first time all offseason. Pederson said there is still no timetable for when they’ll have him back and fully cleared, but that they do still need to have him prepared for when that time comes, so getting some involvement today was a good thing.Other notablesPederson was asked about Eagles president Don Smolenski’s comments last week about limiting open practices Destiny Vaeao Jerseys 2019 , and the head coach agreed that there are several factors that go into that decision — including the condition of the field with concerts and preseason games.He was also asked about what his first practice was like as a rookie QB — going waaaay back. Pederson noted that he was always with the offensive line, working on his cadence, and didn’t even get reps as a backup quarterback his first couple of training camps. He joked that he threw a bit to running backs and tight ends, but never to the receivers.
