OUR DEFENSELESS COORDINATOR.

Posted May 24, 2013

REPORTERS pumped DC Bill Davis for any bit of cogent information he could give them on his system. What it is, who plays where, how it looks, just anything they could write about. 

This article: http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/news/dave-spadaro/article-1/Whats-In-A-Name-For-Defense/4450a614-eb36-4202-8310-018bbb9eb2f0 

says- you know what?! I'll let the article tell you what it said: "About the scheme? Well, if you must know, Davis was asked about 40 times if the Eagles are going to run a 4-3 or a 3-4 or something in between."

Davis's response: "Multiple is the best way of saying it, and I know you guys are tired of hearing about it. What we're doing here, guys, is we're taking that Wide 9, 4-3 and we're moving in the direction of the 3-4, but where we stop has yet to be determined by the players we have."

 

Hey, let me ask a real stupid question here: How do you teach a Defense, if you have yet to determine what you're running?

Here's another stupid question: How do players learn their roles and reads if the system isn't defined?

One more: If you don't know what you're running, how can you maximize a player's abilities?

If you got a brand new set of bosses and they totally changed your department around, wouldn't you want some CLEAR parameters on exactly what they considered your job? Just to make sure that you weren't dropping the ball and risking a trip to the unemployment line, due to simple miscommunication. Seems like a sane idea right? 

So what does it mean when the bosses say they're waiting for you all to determine how they run the department, and thus what the principles will be?

That is INSANE. and I'm truly beginning to believe that this staff may be far more in over it's head than I originally thought.
