Eagles podcast - the Eagles *want* the Falcons to run the ball

39 posts in this topic

This is a great podcast of a couple of Eagles beat guys. Fast forward to the 7:00 minute mark and listen. The Eagles D is vulnerable on the perimeter and the only way to beat them is to come out throwing and putting their DBs on skates.

I swear if we come out trying to %$%$^ establish the run, we will get smashed and I want DQ to be fired on the spot.

I’m sure they do. Cause they know they can’t stop the pass

Yeah those DBs got roasted by nobodies from Washington. If Matt has even a little bit of time that secondary will get eaten alive. A lot easier said than done though. However, the redskins have an even worse o-line than ours and put up 27 on them.

Don’t get me wrong (and just so you know, my unbiased opinion has the Eagles winning and that’s also not from a negative nancy standpoint), I respect the Eagles defense and all. In fact, in 2017 I said the Eagles are a team to keep an eye on. With that said, let’s be real. I don’t believe this current Eagles defense is on the same level as the Vikings defense we just played. 

Even with expected growing pains while under a new OC shift, it’s going to be whether our defense can limit that Eagles offense which IS better than the offense we just played.

Somehow man.... watch Dirk and Matt not test these guys. They will somehow end up looking competent against us. Looking forward to the defense.

The weather for sunday in Philly is partly cloudy at 71* Fahrenheit w/ 5mph winds (A very light breeze). 

So hopefully both Matts (Bryant and Ryan) are accurate on Sunday.

Remember when DK under Mike Smith would force the run no matter how bad we were getting stuffed? That **** used to infuriate me, I really hope he doesn't pull that tomorrow.

We need the even year Ryan to show up.

It’ll be interesting because they didn’t run much last week. 

I’d like to see the pass set up the run. Ito on a draw would be nice.

Yeah, he didn't seem to force it much last Sunday. And Ryan wasn't even that bad on Sunday, he just threw some really really awful INTs. He's likely gonna be more safe with the ball this week but hopefully not too safe. I honestly think he can probably get away with some risky throws against Philly's secondary. Julio *should* eat if Ryan gets enough time.

Even the vikings wanted the falcons to run the ball. Having Matt ryan throw on only 3rd down isn't the best way for the falcons to score with all of these weapons

How many reps have Julio, Ridley and Sanu had with Ryan in game action to get their timing down? I sure hope enough.

This offense is built to establish the pass in order to have a run game. If they keep trying to force a run game it's just going to be wasted drives. When you have the best are in the league with some dangerous rbs that can catch you play to your stengths. Just let Matt Ryan control the offense. May not see as much hurry up as we want until Mcagary gets back in game shape

Julio didn’t look right either. I think his foot is still jacked.

Yep. His timing with Ryan could take a little time to get back.

Dirk is a pass happy coordinator and does well against Philly.

Honestly forgot that Fitzmagic lit that D up like one week after our game. Hopefully we can replicate that.
