I think the eagles are gonna underestimate redman


Recommended Posts

I think Redman has a higher patience. It results in more sacks, but also results in longer throws down the field where Jenkins and Roddy can make the plays.

I hope you are right. I see the Eagles blitzing the he!! out of him. I just hope he pulls the ball down a little quicker than last week. He nearly had about 4 turnovers. Since Jenkins is probably out the only deep threat is White. Dink and dunk down the field then the fade in the corner to Gonzo or Finn.

me & my mates just had that discussion at dinner tonite......look at Ben (steelers) he's the most sacked qb in the league but, he ensures he doesn't turn the ball over & makes BIGGER plays then Romo or Brady.

I think Chris is a cool headed ....down to earth qb....who will make sensible plays & ofcourse torch up Eagles when it matters the most!!!

Falcons I believe!!!

Ok first off I think Matt Ryan is a top 10 QB and I feel there is a major drop off but I also feel Chris could start for the Browns and win games, he is an extraordinary backup QB almost at the skill of Shaub along with JPW, I feel we have the best QB core in the league right now...

Now back on topic, you are right about the line being shaky and that causes the QB to hurry, Chris is gonna eat them up!

Eagles Won't Overlook Redman

The Eagles will face off against a bit of an unknown this Sunday in Falcons' quarterback Chris Redman. Redman hasn't started a game since 2007 when he quarterbacked the Baltimore Ravens for six games, but he led the Falcons to victory last week in the absence of injured starter Matt Ryan.

Trailing by four points with just over two minutes to go against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Redman led the team on a 15-play touchdown drive that was capped by a 4th and goal pass to Roddy White as time expired.

"I thought Chris did an outstanding job in the first significant action that Chris has had in a real game in 27 games," said Falcons' head coach Mike Smith on a conference call with Philadelphia reporters. "I think you'll see the improvement in terms of his play (this week). I thought he played extremely well, but having an opportunity to take the snaps that the starter gets in practice will do nothing but boost his confidence as we get ready for the game this week."

Apparently, both head coaches felt the same way about Redman's performance.

"I tell you what," said Eagles' head coach Andy Reid, "Chris played a really, really good game last week. That guy when is given the time he's something. He's a true thrower and he did some nice things on the move when he broke the pocket. They were designed plays, where broke the pocket and threw the ball. His accuracy both in the drop back game and on the move I just thought was something. You figure in there that he didn't practice. He came in cold off of the bench and did the things he did against Tampa and it was something to watch."

So how does the defense go about preparing for a quarterback who hasn't played significant action in so long?

"We have (gone through film)," said defensive coordinator Sean McDermott. "We looked back at some '07 film, trying to dig up in the archives. You just go from there and the system is different, obviously playing in a different system, but you just try and simplify it and just look at the player in and of itself."

The Eagles don't expect the Falcons' offensive game to change very much, however. After all, Redman is, for the most part, a pocket passer like Ryan, and he will be asked to utilize the same weapons on the outside that Ryan has had all season.

"They're going to come in and run the football," said cornerback Sheldon Brown on how he expects the Falcons to look offensively, "Then they're going to take their shots to (wide receiver) Roddy White and (tight end Tony) Gonzalez. Redman can execute those plays. He showed last week that he could and that's what I expect to see."

Starting strongside linebacker Chris Gocong did notice one difference between Redman and Ryan though that could provide an opportunity for a big play.

"I would say (Redman's) close to the same guy," Gocong said. "The one thing that I did see is he's a little aggressive. I saw a few times where he could have slid but he decided to dive forward, so he's a little aggressive."

Still, the Eagles have not changed their approach to the game because the Falcons' quarterback is out. With leaders like Brown, taking the Falcons lightly is simply not an option.

"When you worry about who's not playing instead of who is playing, that's when you set yourself up for failure," Brown said. "I'll never allow myself to do that and I would never allow my teammates to do that."

What does that even mean? Does it mean you think the Eagles are going to come in and give less than 100% to win the game? No chance that is happening.

I don't know how the game is going to turn out tomorrow, but I know the Eagles understand how critical this game is, and they aren't going to come in and half azz it because Ryan is out.

I somehow believe....we all will witness the best game of the year for falcons on both ends!

Go Falcons!
