It feels like I've been beating a dead horse with my last few articles on the Eagles, but cornerback Bradley Fletcher has really been stepping up during the 2013 preseason. His stellar play continued in Week 3.
Fletcher was solid in coverage; an eight-yard catch by Jacksonville's Justin Blackmon was the only notable reception Fletcher allowed. But it was a quick curl pattern, and that kind of play is difficult for a corner to guard.
And while Blackmon did snag a 17-yard touchdown pass from Henne, there seemed to be a miscommunication between Patrick Chung and Fletcher, so it's hard to say who's fault it was.
Fletcher once again showed reliable tackling. At the beginning of the game, he made an impressively quick shoestring tackle on Blackmon.
As stated in previous articles, Fletcher won't be a star, but he will be as reliable as they come.
