  • Instant reaction: Eagles 34 @ Packers 27
    Off the back of a shock loss to the Lions at home, the Eagles were staring at a 1-3 start. Particularly after another slow start, in which they fell to an early ten point deficit, prospects looked bleak. But if there’s one thing we’ve learnt about this current Eagles crop, it’s that they’re incredibly resilient. The offensive line enjoyed it’s best game of the season, opening up some gigantic holes in the run game, and keeping Carson Wentz incredibly clean. Jim Schwartz also called a good game, opting for a conservative 2-deep safety approach against Aaron Rodgers. Offensive gameplan Run game tempo has been a big discussion over recent weeks. One reason Jordan Howard saw so few carries over the first few weeks was because the Eagles coaches wanted to stretch defenses horizontally in the run game, especially early. That all changed against the Packers, with Howard featuring early and often. The coaches produced a gameplan heavy on interior runs, pounding Green Bay’s front consistently. [… read more]
  • Post game reaction – Eagles 20 @ Falcons 24
    The past two seasons have seen narrow, low-scoring victories over Atlanta in the playoffs. The Eagles failed to keep the streak going on Sunday primetime, falling just short of another fourth-quarter comeback. Jim Schwartz briefly turned into a mad scientist at the height of insanity, calling exotic all-out blitzes compulsively. It almost worked. Schwartz had all the antidotes to the Falcons’ offense until a wide screen to Julio Jones finally broke the second-half shackles. On the offensive side of the ball, the complete loss of the first-team receiving corps to injury predictably hampered production, but the unit showed enough resilience to take a late lead.   Offensive gameplan It’s a little difficult to tell the offensive gameplan because Doug Pederson was forced to use 11 personnel almost exclusively after Dallas Goedert went down. Gone almost entirely were the outside zone runs to Sproles from last week (probably wise considering Atlanta’s speed at the second and third [… read more]
  • Week 1 Postgame Reaction: WAS 27 @ 32 PHI
    It wasn’t pretty but the Eagles got it done. An early divisional loss at home would have been a terrifying start for a team with such lofty aspirations. Desean Jackson should help the team reach those heights, he certainly blew the top off Washington’s coverage consistently. For much of the first half though, the offensive gameplan was overly conservative, while nothing Jim Schwartz called came off. However, the coaches once again adjusted effectively at halftime, running rapid repairs to pull off the victory. Here’s how it looked like they got it done.   Offensive adjustments There’s a school of thought – perhaps one of those absurd ones which involves the kids running the school – that the Eagles slow play their running game. The frequency of lateral runs in the first half was galling, failing to generate positive yardage consistently. Washington have a solid interior, so perhaps, it was tailored to the Eagles’ opponent, but perimeter runs to Sproles simply weren’t working. [… read more]
