Eagles DE Vinny Curry getting linebacker reps

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Vinny Curry will do just about anything to get more playing time than his 32 percent of defensive snaps last season. He made the most of it though, with an impressive nine sacks, so just imagine what he can do with more time on the field. Head coach Chip Kelly and staff would like to see that happen; however in a more expanded role for the...

New role for Philadelphia Eagles’ Vinny Curry

Generally speaking, if a defensive player is able to disrupt and/or sack the opposing quarterback, he is rewarded with more playing time; but for Philadelphia Eagles’ Vinny Curry, who recorded nine sacks in 2014 despite playing only 32% of Philly’s defensive snaps, finding a starting role in Bill Davis’ defense has been his greatest challenge.   Curry was selected in the second...

Eagles raving over DE Vinny Curry

Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly said that he wanted to expand defensive end Vinny Curry's role this offseason, trying him at both inside and outside linebacker. Curry, (6'3, 279) a holdover from the Andy Reid era, played 397 snaps in 2014, while a little undersized for the position, he's a classic tweener for a hybrid position on the end and at outside linebacker while being...

How Vinny Curry’s role with the Philadelphia Eagles is expanding

Vinny Curry was second on the Philadelphia Eagles defense with nine sacks in 2014. With more than twice as many sacks he had in his previous two years combined, it was a breakout year for the Neptune, New Jersey native. Curry has been the subject of trade speculation almost as soon as he joined the team. At no point was that speculation more evident than during the 2015 NFL Draft...

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...

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...
