on Monday morning by re-signing veteran cornerback De’Vante Bausby Mike Wallace Jersey , according to an official announcement from the team.The Eagles had a vacancy after cutting Winston Craig from the practice squad late last week.Bausby, who turns 26 in January, originally joined the Eagles’ practice squad early during their 2017 campaign. He spent the entire Super Bowl season with the team. Heading into 2018, it looked like Bausby was seriously going to challenge for a roster spot. Bausby really excelled in spring practices and began training camp by splitting first team nickel cornerback reps with Sidney Jones. But then Bausby struggled and ultimately fell out of favor. He was waived in final cuts. Bausby’s return gives the Eagles more depth in the secondary. Perhaps this is a sign that doesn’t necessarily bode well for the aforementioned Jones, who has missed Philadelphia’s last two games with a hamstring injury. Here’s an updated look at the Eagles’ practice squad:CB De’Vante BausbyDT Bruce HectorRB Donnel PumphreyLB B.J. BelloOL Josh AndrewsTE Billy BrownLB Asantay BrownWR Braxton MillerWR Dorren MillerDE Joe Ostman During the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game in Philadelphia, the Eagles scored a touchdown to cut their deficit to 20-12. Everyone assumed they’d kick the extra point to make it 20-13.But coach Doug Pederson did what no one expected: He went for two Authentic Sidney Jones Jersey , and it worked, and the Eagles cut the deficit to 20-14.When Pederson made the highly unusual decision, the TV announcers questioned it, and social media lit up with the question: What is Pederson doing?What Pederson was doing was showing he has a far greater grasp of analytics and game theory than any other NFL coach. Because while every NFL coach has always kicked the extra point in that situation, the analytics community has steadfastly insisted that going for two is the better option.Kevin Cole, the Director of Data & Analytics for RotoGrinders Youth Malcolm Jenkins Jersey , spelled out the reasoning last year: If you’re trailing by 14 late in the game, and you score a touchdown to cut the deficit to eight points, when you kick the extra point to cut the deficit to seven you’re hoping that you’ll later get another touchdown and another extra point, which will send the game into overtime. In overtime you’ve basically got a 50-50 shot of winning. But if you go for two after that touchdown in an attempt to cut the deficit from eight to six, now you’ve changed the odds from 50-50 to more like 62.5 percent in your favor: 50 percent of the time you’ll make the two-point conversion, in which case you’ll win in regulation with a touchdown and one-point kick. But there’s also the 50 percent of the time in which you’ll miss the two-point conversion http://www.eaglesauthorizedshops.com/authentic-brandon-graham-jersey , and in those cases after you score another touchdown you’ll still have a 50-50 chance of making another two-point conversion, followed by a 50-50 chance of winning in overtime. And 50 percent (that you miss the first two-point conversion) of 50 percent (that you make the second two-point conversion) of 50 percent (that you win in overtime) is 12.5 percent, so add that 12.5 percent chance of winning to the 50 percent chance of winning from making the first two-point conversion and you have a 62.5 percent chance.The Eagles ended up losing Sunday’s game, but that’s not the issue. The issue is whether Pederson made the correct strategic decision at the time, and he definitely did: He went from his team’s best-case scenario being another touchdown and a 50-50 chance of winning in overtime, to his team’s best-case scenario being another touchdown and a game-winning extra point in regulation. And even if the Eagles had failed on that two-point conversion Rodney McLeod Jersey , they still could have gone for two after their next touchdown to get back to that 50-50 chance of winning in overtime.This might all sound like a justification that only sounds good after the fact, because the Eagles got that two-point conversion. But that’s not what this is. People who have thought through the scenarios have been saying for years that some coach ought to do what Pederson did. During the fourth quarter of the Steelers’ playoff loss to the Jaguars last season, I tweeted when the Steelers scored to bring the deficit to eight that they should have gone for two. I also added that “no NFL coach would even consider it.”As it turned out, there was one NFL coach who would consider it, and it was the same coach who won the Super Bowl last season while embracing analytics. Pederson made a great call.
