For a talented group of receivers that includes DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, this Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver corps is not producing very many yards after the catch (YAC).Andy Reid and the Eagles have been running a version of the West Coast Offense for years here.  One of the longtime staples of this style of offense is setting up your receivers to get yards after the catch.Quick inside slants, bubble screens and other short to intermediate passes that are designed to get the ball into the hands of your playmakers out in space are the backbone for this type of offense.However, that seems to be severely lacking this year for the Eagles.Where have these plays been?  Do they not run the inside slants too often because Jackson and Maclin are smaller receivers that just aren’t built to take the kind of hit you might get when going over the middle?We can’t really point to the offensive line as the problem because these plays would actually help the struggling line’s performanc...

Should Michael Vick fake an injury to help Eagles, Andy Reid?

BoomKack Choreographs Lesean McCoy’s New Touch Down Dance – Do we like it?

As I wrote this headline I realized that white people probably have ZERO clue who Boomkack is and why it’s funny. I thought about whether or not to explain cause I want my white brothers and sisters to be in on the joke. But then I was like it’s probably not that important. So I’ll just leave yall with this explanation. The following video is Diddy’s old choreography Laurieann...

2012 NFL Week 8 Picks

This week is going to be, to put it mildly, interesting. The Eagles are coming off a bye week in which Andy Reid replaced his DC and there are widespread rumors of problems in the entire front office. The Falcons, also coming off a bye, are the only remaining undefeated team. Andy Reid has never lost the game the week after the bye, including the infamously disastrous 2005 season...

Troubleshooting the Eagles' O-Line...

The problem with Howard Mudd's complex zone-blocking scheme on the offensive line is that it is not a "plug-and-play" deal... If a guy goes down, it's not necessarily a matter of "next man up" and rolling another guy through... And it doesn't help that backup center Dallas Reynolds is getting blown off the LOS in certain down-and-distance formations...

As a Falcons and Eagles Fan Week 8 BLOWS

Every time we get to the point in the season where the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles have to face each other I face a week of anxiety! I’ve mentioned this many times before — I’m a fan of both teams.
