What Are the Odds...


It's early Sunday morning, the first week of the NFL season, and we know if you're awake, you're probably wondering if your bookie is too. Gotta get those wagers in before heading down to the lot, right?

Courtesy of Bodoglife.com, we have some of the odds for the full season stats and occurrences this year. We got these 10 days ago, so there may have been some changes since then, but whether you gamble or not, it's still interesting to see the Eagles by the numbers, both as a team and individually. Lots more after the jump.

Temple names Keith Gaither wide receivers coach

Temple head coach Geoff Collins on Monday added two new members to his coaching staff.

Keith Gaither will take over as the wide receivers’ coach and Kyle Lane is the new video coordinator. 

Gaither comes to Temple with 21 years of coaching experience. He spent last season as Army's wide receivers coach. Prior to that, he spent time with Tusculum College (1998-99), Thomasville City Schools (2000-04), Winston-Salem State (2005-08), Elon (2009-10) and Ball State (2010-14).

Gaither spent his collegiate career at Elon, where he was a four-year starter and voted all-region at defensive end before graduating in 1997. Collins originally had retained Frisman Jackson from the 2016 staff, but Jackson was hired by the Tennessee Titans. 

Lane is a Temple alum who spent time with Kansas during the 2016 season as its assistant video coordinator.

Soul sign DL John Sheehy, OL John King

The Soul on Monday signed two players from their recent open tryouts, defensive lineman John Sheehy and offensive lineman John King.

Sheehy (6-5, 260), primarily a defensive end at Western Texas A&M, appeared in 13 games with the Buffalos during the 2013 season recording 16.0 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss of 16 yards and 1.5 sacks. He spent his 2014 season and a redshirt because of injury. He returned in the 2015 season posting 25.0 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for a total loss of 10 yards and one sack. 

“Finding guys like John is what makes hosting these tryouts well worth the effort,” head coach Clint Dolezel said in a statement. “Getting to the quarterback has to be a priority in arena football and I believe John has the skillset to be a great AFL pass rusher.”

King (6-8, 320) started 34 at Buffalo and was the Bulls' starting right tackle his last two seasons.

“With the addition of John to our offensive line, we will be able to continue our success of leading the league in fewest quarterback sacks," Dolezel said. “Each year we produce at least one All-Arena offensive lineman and I believe John has the qualities to reach that caliber.”
