Here's the Eagles' updated depth chart for the Notre Dame game. There's just one 'OR' on the depth chart this week and boy, it's a doozy. Here's the lowdown.
On offense, of course the biggest change is at quarterback, where Marscovetra and Rettig are listed in the starting QB slot -- with that dreaded "OR" between their names. The Globe and ATL Eagle say Rettig will start. Today, Spaziani says he still doesn't know. So ... believe whatever you want at this point?
Here's my take. Rettig starts and Spaz is being coy to make the Irish have to prepare for both quarterbacks. Throw them off the scent a bit. Though it's not like Notre Dame can pop in the Chase Rettig Boston College Greatest Hits highlight reel into the videocassette player, so, yeah.
Lee and Coleman again swap spots on the depth chart. Lee is listed as the starting WR along with Momah, backed up by freshman Bobby Swigert and Coleman. Billy Flutie is no longer listed as a wide out on the two-deep this week.
No changes on the offensive line, which is a little strange considering it appeared that Spinney struggled in his first career start. Spinney again gets the start over Thomas Claiborne at right guard. If the Spinney-over-Claiborne move really wasn't performance based but rather a "team rules" violation thing, I don't understand starting Spinney at RG for the second straight week.
On defense, Ramsey gets the start at left tackle and Scafe gets the start at right. Conor O'Neal is now off the two-deep. For the second straight week, there's a bit of musical chairs at the backup linebacker positions. This week, it's Clancy (SLB), Morrissey (MLB) and Divitto (WLB). The only change in the secondary is Dominique Williams getting dropped from the backup BC slot in favor of Chris Fox.
