Eagles Linc

  • Eagles Gameplan Week 2
    After exploding out of the blocks in the opener against Atlanta, the Eagles were brought crashing down to earth with defeat to the Bucs. After a coaching masterclass against the Falcons, the play-callers really struggled in-game against another NFC South opponent. The contrasting performances of the quarterbacks was obviously a major factor, but Doug Pederson did Foles no favours early in the contest. Penalties were another huge issue, but the Eagles were unfortunate in some instances to be flagged. Not for the first time the birds looked rusty coming off an extended break, an issue that needs to be addressed if they’re to compete for another Super Bowl.   Offensive Gameplan Generally, I don’t feel Pederson helped Foles much early in the game. His signal-caller clearly wasn’t seeing the field well, but the offensive coaching staff failed to engineer good looks or route combinations for the Super Bowl MVP. Early in the game, he tried to setup the Bucs for a stop-and-go. Coming out [… read more]
  • Eagles Gameplan Week 1
    Relentless again, the Eagles simply would not be denied by Atlanta. In a game that resembled the divisional playoff, exceptional redzone defense gave the offense just enough time to spring to life and snatch another victory from the Falcon’s talons. Despite lacking some key personnel on both sides of the ball, the coaching staff once again did an outstanding job mixing up their tendencies and springing new packages and novel looks. Doug Pederson couldn’t help himself, cracking out another target for his Super Bowl MVP signal-caller. Dan Quinn made a poor imitation of Pederson, looking entirely uncomfortable keeping his offense on the field for an early fourth-and-goal. And give Jim Schwartz credit too, his stop unit once again kept one of the league’s best offenses to only 12 points. Let’s dive into the details, starting with the offense.   Offense First half Darren Sproles and Corey Clement got the early work in the backfield, which was a little surprising. The scoring unit [… read more]
  • Patience Pivotal to Roseman’s Redemption
    Like a kid in a candy store, the sugar-rush faded quickly. The crash that followed dragged painfully. Howie Roseman’s baptism as an NFL GM could hardly have been more disastrous. The 2011 season was an unmitigated disaster, from the personnel decisions to alterations on the coaching staff. For a franchise that had made the playoffs every season since 2007, the time for patient team-building was over. A host of high-priced free agents were expected to elevate the team to perennial contender. Instead, the Eagles dropped to a 4-8 record, and into a downward spiral that lasted half a decade. The 2011 offseason is probably the worst in Eagles history. The list of mistakes is long; Nnamdi Asomugha, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Jarrad Page, Danny Watkins, Jaiquawn Jarrett and Curtis Marsh. In many ways, however, a kicker was most symbolic of the malaise. Instead of securing the reliable David Akers, an impending free agent, the Eagles opted to draft a kicker in the fourth-round.
