Miles Sanders enjoying increased role with Panthers after lack of opportunities in Super Bowl

Carolina running back Miles Sanders is relishing his increased role with Panthers after lack of carries and opportunities in Eagles’ Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs

Miles Sanders took his talents to Carolina in free agency, signing a four-year deal worth $25 million with $13 million guaranteed.

His last appearance as an Eagle was an unforgettable performance in the Super Bowl LVII loss, where Sanders logged seven carries for 16 yards in a 38-35 loss.

Now comfortably meshing with the new-look Panthers and quarterback Bryce Young, Sanders told the Associated Press that heeady for ‘more opportunities’ to help Carolina after his Super Bowl disappointment.

“Last game of the season? For all of the marbles? Everybody can answer that question,” Sanders said when asked if he was disappointed by how he was used in the Super Bowl. “If they put themselves in my shoes, would they be happy? I don’t want to make headlines, (but) if it does, I don’t care.”

Sanders said that isn’t the reason he left Philadelphia.

“I can get into that another day, maybe,” Sanders said. “Maybe you should ask them why I’m moving here.”

Sanders isn’t here because Philadelphia doesn’t value the running back position, and all four key ball carriers under contract make about the same as Sanders combined.

Sanders had his best season as a pro in 2022 but only played 34% of the offensive snaps, while Gainwell played more than 50% in the 38-35 loss.

Chiefs-Eagles Super Bowl LVII is most-watched ever after confusion over Nielsen Ratings

Chiefs-Eagles Super Bowl LVII is the most-watched ever after confusion over Nielsen Ratings.

After some initial confusion about the Nielsen Ratings, the Chiefs’ 38-35 win over the Eagles in Super Bowl LVII was the most-watched ever.

According to Michael McCarthy of FrontOfficeSports.com, Nielsen has updated the viewership numbers from 113 million to 115.1 million.

Nielsen is issuing the new record number after a review revealed irregularities in the encoding that enables Nielsen’s measurement of TV viewing and unspecified issues with out-of-home measurement of Super Bowl LVII.

Fox previously stated that viewership for February’s game was 113 million viewers. With the newly updated figure, Fox’s audience rose 2% over the 112.3 million for NBC’s broadcast of Super Bowl LVI last year.

FOX Sports PR quickly confirmed the news.

The new number tops the previous record of 114.4 million viewers for NBC Sports’ coverage of the New England Patriots’ win over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX in 2015.

Social media reacts to everything, and Kelce’s moment has been discussed for hours.

A.J. Brown is a fan favorite in Philadelphia, but depending on who you ask, the All-Pro wide receiver broke two cardinal rules on Monday night.

Brown was a guest on the Raw Room Podcast with host Daren Bates (NFL veteran), Jalen Collins (NFL veteran) and Alex Sweet when the discussion of a contract extension for Jalen Hurts came up.

Brown joked that Howie Roseman and the Eagles would need to trade him to whatever team they allowed his best friend to take his services to.

Likely not getting the joke, fans, media, and pundits reacted to Browns’ comments and his wearing of a Kansas City Royals fitted cap while on the platform.

Eagles: 11 takeaways from Howie Roseman, Nick Sirianni’s end-of-season press conference

We’re looking at 11 takeaways from the Eagles end of the season press conference with Howie Roseman and Nick Sirianni

The Eagles held their annual season-ending press conferences and unlike the 2021 version, we’ll head into the offseason definitely certain about the quarterback, head coach, and potential for sustained success.

Jonathan Gannon and Shane Steichen landed jobs, and there are 18 pending free agents, but other than that, Philadelphia will enter the 2023 offseason with front-office continuity, draft assets, and a clear plan for improving around Jalen Hurts.

Here are 11 takeaways and notes from the presser.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman hints at losing several free agents with comments about compensatory picks

During his end-of-season press conference, Eagles GM Howie Roseman hinted at Philadelphia losing several key free agents after he made comments about compensatory picks

The Eagles have 18 pending free agents and with Jalen Hurts looking for a contract extension, the Philadelphia defense could look remarkably different in 2023.

During his end-of-the-season press conference, the Eagles GM gave some insight into his thinking, admitting that he’s looking forward to the compensatory picks gained from losing several key free agents.

Thanks to some 2022 draft night deals, and the acquisition of C.J. Gardner-Johnson, Philadelphia currently has six picks in 2023, while eight key defensive contributors are unrestricted free agents.

Philadelphia has the depth on the offensive line to offset Isaac Seumalo landing a large deal, but will have to get creative in retooling a talented defense.

Post-Super Bowl Mock Draft: The first two rounds, and a big trade up top

With the Super Bowl in the rear-view, it’s officially Draft Season! Here’s Doug Farrar’s two-round mock draft to get you rolling on that track.

Once the Super Bowl is in the rear-view in any season, the offseason lasts about two minutes, even and especially for the team that wins it. The Kansas City Chiefs enjoyed their victory parade on Wednesday, but you can bet that before and after that thing wrapped up, general manager Brett Veach and his staff (who, by the way, absolutely nailed the 2022 draft) were back in their offices, talking with their scouts and scouting directors about the prospects in the 2023 draft.

The scouting combine starts at the end of February, and if your thoughts have been about the postseason, you are catching up with your coaches on all the prospects who participated in the post-postseason stuff like the Shrine Game and the Senior Bowl.

Basically, draft season is upon us. In volumes, and it will be from now on.

So, it’s time to expand our own vision of how this all might go. This is Touchdown Wire’s first two-round mock of 2023, as we turn our own attentions to the draft as our primary force of content. And while we have the trade most are predicting (the Indianapolis Colts trading up with the Chicago Bears for the first overall pick), there’s a lot of new names in this particular mock. Now, it’s as much about the guys you’ve been scouting in the weeds as it is about the stars up top.

Here’s one version of how the first two rounds of the 2023 draft might go.

(Note: The Miami Dolphins forfeited their first-round pick, which would have been the 21st overall selection, as punishment for tampering)
