ESPN NFL Insider Mike Sando spends each Sunday with ESPN NFL analyst Jon Gruden and the Monday Night Football crew. Cavaliers T-shirts . This week, theyre in Chicago for the Eagles-Bears matchup (ESPN, 8:30 p.m. ET). Here are some takeaways from Gruden on the Eagles rookie QB.Carson Wentz showed during the Philadelphia Eagles Week 1 victory over the Cleveland Browns why he was the most NFL-ready college quarterback prospect over the past couple of years.It was an exciting debut if youre an Eagles fan desperate for a legitimate quarterback. The?film makes clear what the rookie is doing well -- and where he must improve to enjoy greater staying power than the many other QBs this organization has gotten excited about in recent seasons.Excellent trainingTheres a reason Wentz looked comfortable in his debut. He got excellent training at North Dakota State. People talk about the level of competition, but Joe Flacco, Kurt Warner, Tony Romo and Steve McNair all made this jump.Wentz looked comfortable because he came to the Eagles knowing how to recognize, communicate and execute. He has called two plays in the huddle before. He has used a silent count. He has told the center to hurry up. He has made audibles. He has taken control of situations without having to look to the sideline for instructions. He did all those things in college.Pro quarterbacks must make sure they have the appropriate personnel on the field before they even get into the huddle. Then they must be able to call shifts, formations, motions, plays and snap counts. The best ones know when and how to give teammates reminders. They have the right tone of voice to command their teammates. Wentz checks all these boxes.Sniffing out defenses Brad Daugherty Jersey . Radwanska, making her debut in the Seoul tournament, hit eight aces in a match that lasted 1 hour, 4 minutes at Olympic Park tennis stadium. "It was definitely a very good match -- I was playing really good tennis," Radwanska said. J.R. Smith Jersey . According to a report from the Winnipeg Free Press, the Bombers will name Acting GM Kyle Walters to the post full time. http://www.authenticcavaliersauthority.com/customized-c-4/ . PETERSBURG, Fla. Lamar Jackson and No. 3 Louisville go from playing the main event last week to the side stage this week.The Cardinals head to Marshall after jumping into the national title race by tearing up Florida State at home last week. Louisville certainly isnt the first team to play a huge game and then hit the road to play a lesser opponent, but it is not too often you see a team in a Power Five conference go from hosting GameDay to playing at a Group of Five school a week later.Jackson and the Cardinals are talented enough to avoid a letdown, but it should be interesting to see how they respond to being the hunted in Huntington, W.Va., where a salty crowd should be revved up for an 8 p.m. kickoff at Joan C. Edwards Stadium. CBS Sports Network is airing the game.At No. 3, Louisville matches the highest ranking of any team to visit the Thundering Herd. Marshall has just two victories against ranked teams since joining FBS in 1997, the last in 2003 when the Herd beat No. 6 Kansas State. More relevant, Marshall is coming off a 65-38 loss to Akron. So it should be another stat-padding game for Jackson.No. 13 Florida State faces a similar and likely more challenging road test Saturday. The Seminoles play unbeaten South Florida from the American Athletic Conference in Tampa.The showcase games Saturday are mostly in the Southeastern Conference, with three matchups of ranked teams, and over in the Big Ten where No. 11 Wisconsin faces No. 8 Michigan State.The picks:MarshallTHURSDAY NIGHT MADNESSNo. 5 Clemson (minus 9+) at Georgia TechThe Tigers have won three of the last five, but the Yellow Jackets have scored at least 24 points in each game and averaged 29 ...
