Eagles front 4 boasting big numbers

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Not since their front four boasted the likes of Reggie White, Clyde Simmons, Jerome Brown and Mike Pitts has the Philadelphia Eagles been as good on the pass rush as this season. Going into Sunday's game against Seattle, the Eagles are second in the league in sacks with 42, on pace for 56. That would be the most the team has had since 1989, when Simmons, White...

The question marks: 3 players with cloudy futures for the Philadelphia Eagles

It is still a transitional time for the Philadelphia Eagles in their second season under head coach Chip Kelly. Just because the time is considered a contender this season does not mean there is a finished product on the field. The offense may not yet have a franchise quarterback and the defense still lacks a full roster of 3-4 players. Some of these are obvious: outside linebacker...

The state of the Philadelphia Eagles defense heading into 2014 season

A lot of the focus heading into the Philadelphia Eagles’ season opener against Jacksonville is going to be on how Nick Foles follows up his Pro Bowl season, how the offensive line fares without Lane Johnson, and how the young receiving corps performs. But the Eagles defense is at an interesting point after the 53-man cuts and will provide plenty of intriguing storylines throughout...

The key to the Philadelphia Eagles’ pass rush lies with Vinny Curry

One of the biggest weaknesses in 2013 for the Philadelphia Eagles defense was their inability to get to the quarterback. Taking a quick glance at the nominal stats, it would appear that the Eagles’ defense was only slightly below average at pressuring the quarterback, considering that they were ranked 20th with 37 sacks. However, when taking a closer look at the numbers, they...

Eagles Need to Unleash Vinny Curry in 2014

It’s no secret that the Philadelphia Eagles need to improve their pass rush in 2014.  Adding first round rookie Marcus Smith to the pass rushing mix this year should help as well as the returning players being more comfortable in the scheme. But, after finishing 20th in sacks, 31st in sacks per pass play and 32nd in pass defense, there’s no denying that the defense needs more...

Injured last season, ’13 draft pick could improve Philadelphia Eagles’ pass rush

Broken down, the core of the Eagles defensive line is young and promising. With Cedric Thornton and Fletcher Cox on both ends, and a now heavier Bennie Logan in the middle, the front line of the team’s new 3-4 defense is starting to take shape. None of those players are older than 25. After that, there are question marks. Part of this has to do with the scheme. Guys like Vinny...

Youthful defensive line looks to improve in 2014

Fletcher Cox. Cedric Thornton. Vinny Curry. Bennie Logan. All key contributors on the defensive line, and all no older than 25. A unit that wasn’t the best in 2012, the defensive line quickly emerged as one of the better units on the entire team in 2013.
