root down Posted September 15, 2011 Share Posted September 15, 2011 Alright lets use that football knowledge to figure out (the best we can considering our resources), what should we expect from this Eagles D and how to counter / exploit that on Offense. Really, I'd like to compare what we can come up with and what kind of game plan MM comes up with or adjustments he might make during the game.Eagles D: Please Add any of you observations about their DHas a new DC, a first year DC. He was the O-line coach for years for the Eagles. -Unproven, inexperienced making in game adjustments for an entire D unit. He did make adjustments for the O-line during games.-The Eagles new D-line coach, came from the Colts, and was with the Titans before that. -His D-line scheme is called "wide-9". He lines the DEs wider than normal to enhance speed and offset the strength size of Tackles. This does create some run lanes that look tempting in the middle. He wants to funnel the O into the middle of the field to "narrow" the field of play. The Lbers are relied upon to be very GAP sound, every play. They cannot over run the play, they must read correctly, or else big runs happen. The Eagles have a rookie at MLB and youth at the other backer positions. The D-line's philosophy is to get off the ball fast and get upfield. They look for the runner on the way to the QB. Very aggressive.Screen game should be huge against this D.Have the O-line just steer the D-linemen, using their aggression against them to take them out of the play.Run, Run, right at them. They want runs in the middle fine, that will allow bouncing outside to be deadly, cut-backs also. Maybe fake the handoff to turner then toss to J.Rodgers to the outside. Run at the DE, pull the G, make sure you block the pulling G's DT, or else he will follow the G.Best way to stop Aso/samuels/Cromartie. Have Turner run over them a couple of times.OK, need specifics too, a play or two....lets go! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
