Yesterday, I detailed how Jim Washburn’s coaching resurrected Jason Babin’s career and turned him into a sack machine. But what about other players? How is Washburn and the wide nine formation treating veteran Eagles defensive linemen?
That’s the question I set out to answer, using Pro Football Focus’s great stats. Below is a table calculated based on snap counts and pressure data compiled in 2010 and 2011 for Eagles linemen who have played in both Washburn’s system and Sean McDermott’s.
The first column shows change (Δ) in frequency of pass rushes per snap the player is in the game. There are some interesting trends there alone.
Mike Patterson used to be a largely first and second down defensive tackle, but he’s now getting the chance to rush the passer more. The opposite appears to be true for Trevor Laws. Meanwhile, Washburn has smartly eliminated Trent Cole’s occasional coverage responsibilities in 2010.
So, once these players are going for the quarterback, how are...

We all knew that tailback LeSean McCoy had a ton of talent, but fans were a bit disturbed because the Eagles were not using him properly. McCoy is a rhythm back; which means you need to keep giving him the ball so that he can build up a head of steam. Once in a rhythm, McCoy will be hard to slow down.
Last Sunday’s game against the Cowboys is a perfect example. The Cowboys’ defense...

Jason Avant refuses to apologize for his remarks. He's more than willing to explain them.
Avant, a slot receiver certainly not known for making inflammatory comments, became the subject of wrath among Eagles fans this week after making uncharacteristic comments critical of ''bandwagon fans'' in an interview after the Eagles beat the Cowboys Sunday.
Bobby April has long been considered one of the finest special teams coordinators in the league, but in a long explanation during his press conference Friday, the top special teams man for the Philadelphia Eagles had heaping praise for Dave Toub.
Bear Report caught up with rookie safety Chris Conte in the locker room this afternoon at Halas Hall. He talked about Philadelphia's offense, containing Michael Vick and more.
As long as people are producing videos like this. Nice acting job by the kids.
Let me begin by saying that I am by no means a delusional Eagles fan who thinks that their team can do no wrong. I also understand that the team has a lot of work to do in order to just make the playoffs, seeing as how they put themselves in a 1-4 hole to start the season. With that being said, I certainly don’t think it’s out of the question to say that the Eagles can win...
It was a slow day of news out of the NovaCare Complex, which is probably a good thing after a few weeks where it seemed like everyday a report came out that another job was on the line.
