Yeah Griff is never going to make excuses. He is the only one that really could use rust as an excuse though, I mean the rest of the team did see some live action diring pre-season and participate fully in 11-11's in camp.
As for Morris - who knows what his numbers would have looked like if we werent down 33-7. That kind of defecit never lends a hand to the ground game.

1-10 last year and got smoked in the two losses. Maybe he can play safety for us in his spare time?
Edit: his son is the qb on the team. That has to be tough.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

Exactly what I was saying after the game- how you survive the initial onslaught (like the Tyson fights) and when they catch their breathe then attack.

"I think that the speed of that offense isn’t gonna be like that for four quarters. What they’re gonna do is they’re gonna come out, and they’re gonna punch people in the mouth with that tempo. That’s what we did at Oregon. We wanted to come out and set the tempo and dictate to the other team what the game was gonna be like. They jumped out and they scored all those points and you just hang on. You play sound, fundamental football for the other three quarters. Then you can hopefully get away with a win."

-- Kyle Long, Bears guard who played for Kelly at Oregon

Lets see if it works when the opposing team doesn't turn the ball over basically 4 times (safety included) in the first half and first possession of the second half of the game.

Regardless of what we think of Kelly's offense, it worked against us week one. Remember, it was their first game running it. Everyone is saying they can't sustain it, and I think there is some truth to that, but on the flip side, they might get better at it.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

The best thing about being new to the NFL is unpredictability. But since there may be a pattern that's confirmed by a former Kelly/Oregon player, that should no longer be the case. A lot of NFL expert analysts seem to ignore and overlook this. A team usually doesn't just cruise to a one possession lead. That's not a blowout or route. Especially when that strategy is confirmed by a former player.

You have to have a rope-a-dope or rocky (ironic?) strategy and let them punch themselves out.

But a former player already said that that's his strategy - all out in the first quarter and try to play fundamentally the rest of the game. Problem is its hard to do anything when they're tired. They key to opposing defenses is to not keep up with their pace just contain them while they're playing that way. Even if they score every possession while they're in this mode- limit their scores to field goals. It's a win for the defense if its a field goal or less in the first quarter.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

Another key is finding a weak link on offense, especially on the line, since they are consistently on the field on all offensive plays. Just thinking like a fighter- a fighter can only fight at a fast pace based on what talents, skills, and physical condition that the fighters in. But not all fighters can fight at that style.

It's gotta be like that for all the offensive players consistently on the field for the team to be able to sustain success. But that can't be the case- you're going to have at least one player that can't play like that. Find that player (or those players) and you've found the weak link to attack after the initial onslaught.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

Started rewatching the game, got through the 1st half. You can't do that to your defense, leave it on the field nearly all the 1st qtr and a lot of the 2nd. At least we got to see a lot of the D, and there's a lot to like. The front seven is not elite but very good. Bowen was kinda quiet and cofield not as effective without two hands but the D line is solid. LB corp is also. I think ppl have a way higher standard for London. He missed some tackles (because of physical limitations) but made a lot of smart plays also. Riley missed some tackles too (because he's out of place sometimes) but made some good ones. Riley's side/gap was attacked more than London's and Riley let himself get blocked out of the play or bit on the fake too much. Several of the big McCoy runs were on Riley, including the one right before Philly scored late in the 2nd half.

But our secondary still sucks. Rambo is a huge liability at FS, but why put biggers back there? He's a converted corner now? I still think the team made a mistake not trying Hall at centerfield when they decided to keep him. Hall lacks the physical ability to cover the better receivers but probably is our best DB at reading the defense. Anyway, the corners are playing way off the LOS and Rambo bites on anything. Biggers wasn't much better.

Not enough seen of the offense to say a lot, other than Philly put on the zone blocking clinic that night and I hope Shanny calls out the oline all week for it. Our guys didn't get to the 2nd level run blocking and looked flat slow sometimes. You could say sluggish from sitting too long but it's a lousy excuse. And the pass blocking...ugh. Hopefully this group gets it act together ASAP.

Vick: "I've never been a part of anything like it. When the first quarter was over, I thought we was about to go into halftime. It was unreal. The only thing I could tell myself was, 'It's going to be a long season.'"
I say let 'em. It will take the focus off of the Skins for a while, and under the radar is best. By mid-season we will know who the REAL Eagles are...maybe before then.

Re: Skins v Eagles post game thread

I have been reading some of the analysis from various sites and watching the film & field shots. Kelly's offense created big lanes in the run game by spreading the D wide. Also, used different read options to force Fletcher to make the choice. Really singled out Fletcher as the option target. Once he committed, Fletcher simply did not have the recovery speed to make up the lost step. In addition, safety play was pretty miserable - bad angles, missed tackles, etc.

Solid tackling would have made a huge difference. This offense works b/c of McCoy. Period. Not Vick and not Jackson. They help obviously, but, if you don't have a McCoy level runner, this O don't fly. Also, defense needs speed b/c the offense isolates defenders and really makes them responsible for a lot of ground. Fast, disciplined linebacking, IMHO, is the key to stopping it.

Good designs, but nothing good tackling wouldn't slow down. Also, the concept needs a big field. Between the 20's, this offense is likely to make some yards. As they get into the red zone, however, field shrinks and so will the lanes both passing and running. Still - gotta tackle or any "scheme" will beat you.
