"This is Jim from the step over the Radi. Ballers podcast talking seventy Sixers tune in this off season is my coz max nights off next steps and solar recovered from Sixers raptors game seven over a span of many, many months were listen back to old episodes, and make fun of how wrong we were to be confident, only on the espionage in podcast network. eagles were at the podium. It were here to fill. My nerdy completion is compulsions. Explain in a moment. Michael kissed in this is all brought to you by the fine folks at SP nation and bleeding green nation. We started this series because I wanted you gentlest ner as often as I call, you sometimes to your millions, but met with the best of intentions, I wanted, you to have access to every nugget of information, you possibly could hope to attain right here on one feet to rule the mall as they say. Emergency reaction shows. Exa does trending talking points. Narrative busters press conferences from stem to stern as Ben would say we wanted to have you covered so with mandatory minicamp any a couple of weeks ago, we had a ton of extra content for you in the way of covering that with boots on the ground special guests and still ongoing I on the enemy series and I realized I still had a missing presser in the can and that was from. Doug Peterson on June thirteenth and then also do Staley spoke briefly with the media on June twelfth, so I don't know about you. But when I play like red dead redemption, to assassin's creed odyssey. For example, I'm a bit of a completion est as I mentioned, at the top of the show, and it's the same with this BGN feet. I wanna bring you everything. So I say these talks with the eagles coaching staff with the plan to air them later, and now's that time seeing as there's nothing going on right now in the football world, except BG and content. Of course, this is the newest stuff that we have from Peterson and Staley, so it's still relevant. And again, I wanna give you gentle listener the option to consume as much eagles content, as you like. So we're going to have those chess for today. I with Doug Peterson than do Staley. So in case you missed it lately on the feed. We just completed a three part series of I on the enemy for the Dallas Cowboys, there's two special guests in that with Jeff cabin all from one five through the fan in RG Ocho from blogging, the boys, the Cowboys Espy nation site, and also the kissing Solex show one, which is our preview of the Cowboys and beyond that last week, we had garafolo of NFL. Network speak, which on Stolnis for a special BGN radio, that's up sixty and recently, we also had kissed and so, like one or two with me, and Ben selecting an all star team, using pieces just from the NFC east, the newest show before this one is a conversation with me in the awesome, Jimmy Kamsky from the Phillies voice, we go over the NFC east, and some others as Jimmy has just written those teams up in his rage, inducing, why your team is dumpster fire series. So make sure you check that out if you haven't Kamsky as always it was a great guest and really need to bring it back from her shows because I love talking with a guy. So I know you'll enjoy that or in one last thing to plug here with some follow up with a project that I'm working on. We also talked with the guys from sports info solutions on fireside chats number twelve that was with former NFL scout, and director of football and research for SIS. That's Matt Manchurian and also his cohort. And my buddy Bryce Rossler we dove into a bunch of analytics with the eagles, including what Bill Walsh, dubbed reactive, offense, also some data on play action under center for shock. The eagles had triple, the expected points added from shock over the rest of the league last year. Plus, and this is what piqued my interest. We covered Jim Schwarz's blitz tendencies, and success rates that talk about Schwarz's blitz has got me interested. So right now, I'm charting up every third down pass or scrambled at the eagles defense face lest year to see if I can go even further into finding win in wise, words, blissed, along with what worked and what didn't and that's of interest going to turn into an article for bleeding greenish dot com. And I may even do a special show with those findings and pair it with the clinic swertz apper. He talks about how e game plans to rush teams from week to week, which I think, is fascinating. And I've used pieces of that clinic further pieces before I mean, why not right? Because summer is the time to delve into topics and clinics, you otherwise wouldn't have time for during the season saw pass on whatever information onto you when that time comes remember to follow BGN underscore radio on Twitter to keep you updated on win these shows dropping into your seat. Also subscribe on whatever app, you're using to listen to this. And if you're feeling generous drop a five star. Rating and review with what you think about the show or just say you're following directions. That's up to you. All right. Let's not waste any more time you came here for pressures that we got him. Here's Doug at the podium than after him will be do Staley, talking with the media at mandatory minicamps. Enjoy, okay. Good morning. Years, you could said the way with your message training, camp, and they'd be able to think about that during. So what was that message? Have you? Honestly. It's basically it's simple. It's number one is, is they can they, you know, I appreciate and I told him this just a second ago that I appreciate all the hard work this week. Everybody was here, the entire off-season that the guys were here that I appreciate their effort, their hard work attention to detail that. Secondly, I basically just said, hey, enjoy enjoy the next five and a half weeks. You know spend time away from from football. You know, with your family. Spend time with them and friends and and but in the third, and probably the most important thing is get your mind ready to go. Get your mind right on these next couple of weeks. And, and that's just not players that was talking to myself coaching staff everybody because, you know, when we come back in July. You know, we hit the ground running, and we're ready to go slowly. Everything. What's significant back story of, of. That's low. Well. Everything we do in life and really anything we do in life matters. And there's always a you know, you have choices and you get consequences sills choices, and so the decisions that we make sometimes matter. And so, I feel like as a football team you know, as coaches players even personnel support staff. Everybody in the organization, everything we do matters, it matters to winning games or losing games on the football field. So just wanna keep kind of reiterating that point with our team. And just getting them to understand that you know if we jump off sides in practice for probably gonna jump off sides in the game. Right. If we don't do the little things right in practice. We won't do them in the game and everything that we do matters relation less season. I'm just asking because last year was bracing target, obviously from the previous year, right? Of any a little bit a little bit. You know. But still, I think I think that it just comes just comes to light now that we're on the sort of on them. The brink of a new season that, that we can, you can kind of start fresh and start over and and, and get ready to go for another season. And and yet you know you can look back and, and learn from mistakes you can learn from failures you can learn from successes and, and, and so again, you know with that everything that we do matters to, to how we perform John game. As of right now for mile centers to have a significant role right out of the chute, and what do you need to see during the summer or to tell with ready or not for that, number one, obviously, is going to be a little more difficult. Now that, that, you know, we're going on, on this fake ation on this break, but fully expect him to come in ready. Come in healthy ready to go. You know, we gotta get him in the mix early. Definitely gotta see exactly where he's at, you know, mentally from, from all the mental revs that he took this spring. And, and, and you know, slowly work them into the mix and see see just how you know he can help us on game. Yeah. I mean, as far as I know you know, he's been he had no, no limitations all spring. And, you know, just like I said, previously, you know we we've monitored him just like we done other players and, you know, he's looked good. More detailed system of how you think he's formed having the full spring versus last will yet. Number one, I think, just, you know, eat a little more obviously, I would say, I would say, you know, relaxed going into the end of the spring, heaven, having some new weapons around and bring into Sean and being around him being around the team being around the guys being here, showing his leadership. Those are all things that I've seen and what I've experienced with him, you know, this, this spring, so in this offseason, and, and, you know, looking forward to get him back in July. And, and I know he's going to continue to work this summer and, and keep building for, you know for this for the regular season. Help to have a Holden course of wins. Ready to go back need? Everything's doing great, which will help you guys in this offense and inversely. Well just go back to two years ago when he came off his rookie season. He was healthy radio. Go. You know, we started out and started. Well, and I think it's important every team in the league. I mean, it's healthy as you can be going into training camp is positive, you know, and so, but having your quarterback healthy. Is definitely positive for us and, and all the work that he's gotten with our guys. This spring is just going to pay dividends down the road. Top of these just the other day press. Taylor talked a little bit about what he thought some of the new kind of frontiers were an offensive football in the league down the road with, you know, the way you guys gonna push the envelope on fourth down was an example over the last couple years. What do you think is a hey? I mean, I would imagine you're thinking about this. You know what is the next thing? We can exploited is an extra wrinkle weaken had any. Do you have any general thoughts? Yeah. But, you know, listen to the end of the day footballs football. They have a Levin, we have eleven and you know, we gotta lineup properly. And, you know, you really quite honestly you're not gonna you're not gonna treat defenses defenses. You're not going to trick offenses. Is just that's just the nature of our game. But. Atrial trick him. But, you know, from the standpoint of, you know. Situation of the game. And when it was called, I mean, there, you know. Yeah. It caught them off guard. But I still I still think that teams now I mean you look at that I mean now we're guarded against plays like that. Obviously our defenses prepared for plays like that. You know, we're still looking for ways to be creative on offense with the, you know, the tackle over stuff, or, you know, empty formations, whatever. But, you know, at the end of the day. It it's, it's still it's still ball. You know it still ball. I just don't think you're gonna do too much one trick play a game you know or one trick play every three or four games. Don't definitely won't define your season. Unless it's in the Super Bowl. Parts of Sean serve, it very much of the baby for the spring on. Have you been? Brazil quickly that Caesar. Not really. I mean to veteran players. You know, complement to Sean for spending the offseason here and getting to know Carson, the only personally, but but on the football field. And just even some of the extra time they've spent after practice you know, working or consume routes and, and doing some things to be on the same page. So still working through some things working through some things with those two but made a lot of progress. You know the spring. Layer players as apprised. During the spring, and this is stuff like that, as far as someone expect to. Yeah. There's, there's several guys. I mean in someone. Don't want to single out one or two, but I can say this. You know, I I've been impressed with the way Dallas came back approach the off season. Vaunting Matic's came back in the off season. I think Josh sweats and a great place right now. Even some of the injured guys Derek or net way. He's worked Darby the way he's worked, you know, Rodney, you know, these guys have all Carson, these guys have all come back with an eagerness Zakar. It's I mean this guy is a pros pro the way he attacks just the off season. And it's like a week nine for him, everything when I say everything matters was Akers. That's, that's what I'm talking about. Everything matters with him. So it all, and there's several others, but just to, you know, just to name a few. I wanted to wash game. It was. I mean, you know, listen, you know, when these things come up, and it's like I said, you know, I've said this before that you don't get you don't get these times back and, and, you know, it's a big event, not only four you know, our country and in USA, and all that, but, you know, his wife is on the team. And I thought it was important that he had a chance to watch again turnover. Asli obviously, you lose veteran players. Nick, chris. You've had everybody for the spring pet have any of the young players stepped up in a leadership role. I haven't seen quite that yet I think they're still kind of feeling their way just a little bit. You know with with the with the playbook, I do expect, though, once in the training camp that some of these younger players take a little bit more that leadership role. You know it's on. It's on each player really to motivate themselves. But. To really come in that, you know, in the camp with that frame of mind that I can I can take another step. Not only on the football field, but I think in a leadership role of the team. Two years ago, you're pretty much off is you probably won't be. Can handle? You think so, you know, the experiences we've we've, we've had these last couple of seasons. A veteran veteran group of guys. You know, and that's that's important to have guys gone through it, you know, veteran players that have gone through it that. Understand it got so important. And so, I think whatever, whatever we face, you know, the, the season, you know, we'll be up for it in in ready for that challenge. Hello listener. I'm Sean Rama's firm. Host of today.

Pass-catching things in common issue for before he proved by third year. You see him being utilized on Thursday. I never knew that. I hear now course the pass Jacksonville but never came out just in the ball will. And of course, once again, not to be redundant, but in order to just the ball. Well, you got to know exactly what you're doing. He knows about the routes, he knows protections. That is going out there and you snagging the ball. Sanders as a pass catcher. He did a little bit of Penn State. I think that talking those guys all tell you that they continue to get better. But you want those guys ain't that way. And be humble, especially when it comes to catch the ball and understand where to be as one of my things as far as while running, you got understand fans and you understand the progression of offense, which is very important. And for those guys come in and kind of learned that rather quickly, I'm very pleased, Jordan. Howard heavily Sanders. You'd be happy to us draft pick on on Alexander's. I'm very happy. And you know this all you guys Ecorse been able to cement pin, stay Sunday. Things he did there that was special able to play behind another special guy and learn from him. So I'm happy how any kind of popped into your office, I think the Friday, four Sanders has picked has had a conversation about whether he would be available across fingers. Just kind of what you remember about that. Yeah. Definitely popped in conversations. I told you and just we didn't think I didn't. These will be available was very surprised that he was. And I think it was like a no brainer behind it all having some time with the hamstring here TA's is that significant for him, I think significant any player that misses times, as far as getting out, do knowing their teammates, and you neighbor. To understand how they play the game how thing but as fours playbook wise, no knows the playbook. We have. We have a chance to have extra meeting time, which I enjoy with him with a rookie. So he's able to come in and maybe quiz them may take him through different games, film, you cetera. So that part of it. He's cool. You mentioned about him having a super hind saquon. Would you learn talking to coaches at Penn State about how he ended that and would you learn yourself doing your own kind of? Yeah. I think that the coaches speak highly of him, of course, in the type of gentlemen. Young man us. I didn't expect anything for once I learned about him sit behind saquon, actually, not really sitting behind, I guess you kinda lost his job because I think he was there. I if I'm not mistaken, and, you know, we all go through so things in life is all about how you bounce back. So that kid, of course being, I guess highly recruited out of high school. A lot of colleges wanted him. Saquon came in going. We all knows these came in. It was able to take the position. Now the options today you got a chance to transfer can be mad, you'd be disgruntled knowing that he just went to work, and it showed what type of persons this organization, just made a massive commitment. Carson wentz. You've been around this organization, an awful long time. What do you think of that decision that this organization made to keep Carson things? Awesome, awesome super excited about it. Since measures lose teammates, of course. Also, of course in our community. Great eagle fans says a message to we were committed community has Orgainzation commuters team coaching staff, of course, was Delury minute. And we all know arson can do and you definitely have a good season my opinion. He's working so hard, you know, being able to come out practices to see the guy they're being out ten to fifteen minutes and times is working on his crap. I'm super excited about it. You lived win. Donovan was here as number two picking Saul hin, half to handle expectation and those kind of things obviously, Carson is living a similar life. How is he he'll that? Oh, great. No problems, of course, is the city. This is a tough city. This is sports city. People have no football, course and being able to be in a situation like that being the leader of team being the main guy. Donovan like you said, went through something similar. Of course, I know Carson kinda went through to those guys were Donald's true pro in able to handle it the way in and Carson's been trooper also what Darren sproles if you talked to him lately, does he want to play again? Would you guys want him if he he did replay again? Of course, I won't one time. I don't think he's gonna get old. You know, the time I need to bars and drinking on they you it. So we sell it later. And he started drinking. And now I can come back. Spos- awesome continues communicate. And he's watching film. The other teams always calls. Also dude is also. And so they should change as name scout. Scout. Now's as you tell them all these things. But now once again, just guy who loves his name was been a part of the game on time. I it's hard from the step away, but who knows what's your navy back not here saying they beg. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I'm just saying generally, maybe that, of course, I opened the door for him to come back to your love to come back here, but who would return punts than me? Choice. But you do. Returning, we don't know we're gonna couple of guys, of course. Was he I workout wars, and, you know, we all know, somebody step up and, and, and take the position. But right now, we don't know what about Boston sky seems to be have a sproles type physically. What are you see from him? What do you think is ceiling is very high? I'm very high on Boston had a chance, of course to work with him a little bit last year coming in and being able to see them in today's he's I'm excited. I'm sided about how quick is the way the offense. It does look like a little spoils there at times. But I tell us working hard. He's dedicated. He's in this building early. He's watching film. I'm very please Jordan Howard was saying types of runs that are available to them here. There's kind of a bigger package of more than he can do. The maybe he didn't Chicago. Where is he at his what types of runs? Do you think you really what we'll see all of that comes from the past? We can see and talk about these guys nine these gym shorts, of course, doesn't really matter. So we get a little contact going and get the Perez on and pretty much talk about that identity as offense but I see a guy who can impose his wheel guy that can make a gun MIR's guy like you guys were talking about earlier with Becca catch the ball out of the backfield. So he brings a lot of. Gee. Hi. This is Jim from the step over the Radi. Ballers podcast talking seventy Sixers. Tune in this off season is my coz max nights off next steps and solar recovered from Sixers raptors game seven over a span of many, many months were listen back to old episodes, and make fun of how wrong we were to be confident, only on the espionage in podcast network.

We cannot, thank you enough for that gentle listeners so enough humble bragging as we gotta show to get to. And if you listen to any of the fireside chats before, you know, this is a series where I bring in the leading minds from around the industry talk all things on this time, you're going to get a ton of new information that you really can't get anywhere else, because Matt managerial from sports info solutions is back on BGN, and he brought our friend, Bryce Rossler along with them to talk about the eagles and league wide trends, so we get into some reactive playcalling discussions play action. Under center shotgun. Jim Schwarz's blitz tendencies, and a quick note before we get to that conversation sports. Info solutions is currently accepting applications for internships for their fall season. So if you're interested in breaking into the sports world, and that's a great place to start go to sports info solutions dot com today. For more information, all right? Let's get to that conversation with the game from SIS right now. I just make me sound good. We got the all star team from sports info solutions here to chat eagles in the NFL. I up he is the director of football and research. I've once heard him described as mysterious, but his background as a scout in the NFL is no secret. He has Matt managed Syrian follow him on Twitter at Manno. That's M. A. N O. Matt, good to talk with you again, brother. How you doing? Good. I don't wanna come onto often because I gotta keep the mystique of apparently but, but I'm happy to be back -solutely in his opponent fighting in the blue corner hailing from sports, VO solutions reformed lines Homer a big twelve apologist. And he is the sociopath that you didn't. As for. But the sociopath that you needed. He is my buddy, Bryce Rossler. Follow him on Twitter at BT Rossler, Bryce, Kunichi wa-, brother. How you doing? I'm no well, Mike. You know, we've known each other for a couple years. And this is just now getting on the show. But that's okay. Maybe it's that attitude that kept you off the show Bryce nothing. Nothing. Okay. We'll keep going. If you need that give a play by play of Bryce 's facial reactions right now. It's very purse lips. Is what we're seeing that says about ready to get Shanghaied. It'll happen I'm gonna hit you some stuff that you're already for. But the last time that you and I spoke, it was fireside chats number nine and we had a great time. A ton of great information in that show, not just league-wide but related to the eagles as well. Go back and take a listen to that gentle listener, if you have not yet, and when we did that Matt, you assembled a small army to get me a ton of data that I was wasn't expecting. So it's going to be tough to top that one Bryce in a in a really bad spot here. So in that show we buses. Some Carson Wentz narratives, it was a good time, but before we continue, Matt. Could you remind the gentlest Nur's of what your goal is at sports info solutions and what you folk provide to the people? Yes. So we provide basically data and analytics to NFL teams. We also work in baseball. We've along history there. But specifically with football what we're doing is we have a big charting operation where we have over fifty video scouts, watch every game in the NFL. And if Bs everything happens in our building the reporting everything that's going on the place. And then in our research team, we're taking all the data that they've gathered, and we're cooking up different types of tools that we provide the team's new statistics, total points, which is one we came out with last year, providing these analytics, not just the teams and now also to the public so that everybody can understand the games a little bit better. So most of our businesses providing that competitive advantage. But, but certainly, we like to kind of be out there in the world trying to whether it's people are using it to gamble or whatever else football information's fund sports VO solutions has tons of great stuff that they're putting out, make sure you're following their work into down wanted to talk more about the eagles. Then we'll get into some league wide stuff. But when I was thinking of what kinda like data wanted to talk about the term reactive play calling was the first thing to pique my interest and understand. Sometimes when you see the word reactive attached to something it's typically like pejorative, Bryce, can you break down? What I mean? When I say reactive play calling the old forty Niners coach Bill Walsh, had a concept that he called reactive play calling, and basically, what it boils down to Walsall believed that offenses tended to act in certain ways following certain situations. So he wanted when he broke down film. He always wanted to know, for example, what a team lights to do what they tended to do a first down play after they had gotten a first rushing after they had gotten a first down passing and he believed that in these vacuums you could learn more about teams tendencies than if you just looked at their first and ten playcalling overall, for example, to back that up, I'll say in my time with Saint certainly look in the play sheets every day in the. Way that coach bay in p Carmichael. Those guys like the organize the practice is you're looking at these situations differently. So after a turnover what are the place that you're running in that situation after earn First Albany doing in that situation after I first down after a punt these are all kind of different things. And that goes back to this concept of react bomb. So I can tell you for my experience. This is something that's not just a in books in theory, but Bill Walsh was doing it and it's still actively employed in the NFL today. Now sauces told me that you Bryce might have some information on reactive calling when it comes to the eagles, Mr. Rossler. What do we have on that front? The floor is yours. My friend. Okay. So we've got several different categories here out briefly detail them for the gentlest we've got close passes, which we've defined as passes, the game, fifteen or more yards from you've got explosive rushes, which are runs that game fifteen or more yards. We also have generally passes for first downs. They're not double counted because we out the explosive passes. I. Same deal for runs for first downs or got possession in ten. We've got what teams do after the opponent turns the ball over. And then what they do after on their first drive after they turned the ball over on their last. Dr Carson Wentz throws a nurse. -ception. What do they do on the following drive? We've got I down sacks and then something that I thought was really interesting that war in Chartres brought to the conversation on Twitter was what who teams do after I intend incompletion. So those are the categories, I've been a relate this to how Philly compares to the NFL averages so for explosive passes Philadelphia actually runs the ball, a little more than the league average their, their pass rate is about four percentage points below the league average same can be said for runs Navin explosive run play the following I down there about twelve percent under the league average. And some of the really surprised me was going back to the first island, completions. We know the, the eagles are very much on the. Forefront of analytics analytics will almost always tell us the passing more efficient than running is. So it was surprising to see them come well under the league average after I out completions out there about eight percentage points below the league average in those situations. I know that, that the play of Nick foles may have had something to do with that. Maybe they wanted to be a little more conservative when Wentz was not at the helm. So you can you could probably break that down a little bit further. I down sacks though. They threw the ball quite a bit. They threw it twelve percent. More often than the rest of the league did after getting a first down sack turnovers. They are way above the league average. Once they get the ball off opponents turn over there, passing thirty one percent more than the rest of the Leah's little bit more conservative win. They've turned the ball over the following possession. They're passing it ten percent less. So you said bridges taken back second, you said, I lay after that turnover. The eagles are taking showdown. Field. Basically, they're passing a lot there passing out. I don't have the average target depths in front of me, but they're certainly being aggressive in passing the ball, it makes sense to me defense isn't necessarily ready to be out there right away. They don't have all their time to get get oriented and get set up and all that kind of stuff. It's time to take a shot. I think that, that kind of lines with conventional wisdom. Yeah. So what we're seeing is like, in these different situations, they linked towards run so far in a lot of these. But then when it comes to a sudden change, which would be the term for that. They really wanna be aggressive in that situation. That's interesting that that's where they decide, like less really ramp it up. Yes. Absolutely. And they're, they're not running the ball all the time in these reactive situations possession. Ten the first play of their drive their they're passing more than most teams. Are they're passing about eight percent. More than other teams. Are again, we're not double counting the turnovers and those sudden changes that went possession. Ten explain what, what, what that means that's, like a new set of set of downs. The fresh. Start to drive. What is that? Yeah, it's, it's just the first play of droff. Then they're also passing it a little bit more than most. Other teams are after gaining I down on non explosive plays. Two percent more than week. Once they pass her first down in also about two percent when they rush for first. So they're kind of all over the place, right? Like they're kind of, like they pass more certain situations in there, either way above or they're like pretty, like a flat line towards the below the league average for passing another situations. I, I wonder why that is like if they found that passing isn't always the best answer after some of those situations, you know what I mean? That's certainly something that could be studied deeper on a league level I claim to, to know anything off the cuff about that. But that's certainly something interesting that could be looked into. So what we can really glean from that, like, the main point that I got there is the one that Matt was talking about his wells that sudden changes that the eagles more so than let other teams like we tend to assume that all of these. Are taking shots after turnovers, but it looks like the eagles are going for it a lot more than other teams that I'd be interested to look into that data myself and kind of see what was the result of that is that were a lot of their explosive plays came from because they struggled for a better part of the season last year creating explosive play. So maybe that was some somewhere where they found a competitive advantage. So that's something for Nita follow up on anything else on reactive play calling that you found. So one thing that, I'll just throw in there, you know, that, that peon tenant first first down of the possession to me, especially looking at some of these being lower sample size occurrences. This is actually the highest sample size of all these situations in the eagles being eight percent above average. That's something that I think is, is really not coincidental there at fifty nine percent in that situation, the league's still just at fifty one and a half percent in that situation. And that saying that when they're starting when they're starting to drive from of irregular neutral situations. They're, they're coming out with. Significant amount more of passing on the first play the drive to get the drive start. And then these other teams then you see you see more of a range when it comes to. Okay. They've already earned a first down. What what's going on? Now you start to see they do different things in different situations. But in terms of what they're doing strategically what they're about. They're, they're in line with what you'd expect that, that should be more of a passageway shin than a run situation. If you're trying to run your offense efficiently no-doubt about it and like we said before those sudden changes they're gonna take shot and league wide. You talk about the first play, you know, you throw an incompletion league-wide typically how does the league react to that, because a lot of coaches in what I've seen for more in sharp what he's talked about is that coaches. Don't wanna go three and out pass pass pass. It just it's weird. It just looks bad. You know, it's not considered the same as going three out on pass run pass or pass run run, like how does the league react to that. Yes. So for twenty eight teen they, they actually fared a little better than I expected them to their, their about sixty three percent passing after I. On completion, which is a lot higher than I would expect it be. Now this is just for twenty eight teen. There might have been a sudden shift between seventeen and eighteen teams start to incorporate analytics more maybe that there's an uptick somewhere in there. But for twenty eighteen they, they were generally pretty smart about passing some to some teams get a little gun shy about passing again. Okay. So it talking about passing. Let's talk about a way that we can maximize our passing efficiency and there's been a lot of talk about play action in how it aids. Passing game is also. It also involved into like the whole the whole play action conversations kind of started with. Well, right now, we can't prove that, you know, establishing the run, quote unquote really essentially, it's play action at all. You can do it in the first drive without having established the run, and then it kinda volved into okay? So play action is more effective as, as a passing concept than regular drop back passing under center shotgun than it kind of all voted to. We talked about this with the giants on the kissing Solex show. It imp-. Proves your protection now that could be because on a lot of these play action concepts. You're leaving more offensive players in to give a quarterback more time in maybe that's the reason for it not just the play action itself. But then it finally now what I'm seeing is that under centers, the more efficient concept versus shotgun when it comes to EPA is that correct? That is correct. The average EPA from twenty seventeen to twenty eight team for under center. Play action was point one to the success rate was fifty percent. You compare that to shotgun which was point zero six and about forty eight percent. What's interesting is is our friend, Keegan Abdu of NFL nexgen was having a debate with another one of our friends. Evan Silvano Twitter. And it was regarding Aaron Rodgers being reluctant to turn his back to the line of scrimmage in under center play action. So I also scraped the pressure rates for these plays. And interestingly enough while under center, more efficient co. Quarterbacks tend to get pressured more often when there's play action from under center you're looking at a forty two percent pressure rate from under center versus thirty percent for shock. Right. So that's consumed that aspect of it is consistent. So the shotgun, you'll see mostly be cleaner than than in terms of pressure in all situations in that e becomes even stronger in play action, so play action under center that forty two percent Ray. That's a pretty high pressure rate kind of all things considered like saying before you see in twice the average EPA per play and a couple of weeks higher on the success rate. Now, the religious thing one, if you split it out, is pistol king. What can you tell us about about? When you split us when you split out pistol from shotgun. I called you Keegan and barest. I'm so, hey, I want to issue an apology to Keegan Abdu on the air right now. I'm so sorry. I made that mistake we, we were just talking about him. I'm really, really apologized. Kagan brother. That's rough if you're listening. We, we had be Jan would also like to issue it apology for the slander against her name, Brice, which account. Storm out. This is my first time on the podcast. And this is how I'm treated but you expect dog. So for, for anybody who's wondering it impairs the average EPA was up point two six. So even better than the under center now small sample size. We don't have that many pistol plays in the NFL even over a two year sample at we're looking at here, but the success rate up above again fifty two percent there, EPA per play point two six, that's above the under center point one two and fifty percent. The difference between that shotgun play action. And that pistol play action really seems to be making a big difference, of course, sample side warnings about and I love the pistol. I picked teams should use the pistol. But, you know, talking about the eagles are heavier shotgun team. But when they go play action under center is better for them with some other teams than it is for shock on price, what you have on. What the eagles are doing with their play action schemes. Yes. So in twenty eighteen the eagles, they didn't use any pistol, but they used a lot of shotgun as you. One hundred thirty six play action attempts under shotgun. Much better than the league average out of shotgun. Nearly triple point one eight average ETA as compared to the, the league average employee seventeen to twenty eighteen of just point zero six, however, they were not as effective under Senate. You're looking at point one average EPA on seventy two under center. Play action attempts compared to the league average or point one two. So a little bit of success rate was about the same under center fifty percent compared to basically fifty percent for the league average and their officiency shotgun was much also unsurprisingly. They didn't allow as much pressure because they're they're line is better than most of its of lines in the league point seven nine under shotgun and point three eight under center. So faring better than the league average in both those areas. So they're kind of flip from under centers success to shotgun success. So instead of recommending more under. Center play action from them like you maybe would for the rest of the league because you're gonna get a little bit more EP a little bit more yards per attempt out of it or yards yards. Average there shotgun is the more effective portion of their play action packages AM. I am. I suspect that correctly direct than it is play action data from the boys at sports info solutions. Thank you, thrown together. When we come back, we're gonna talk about more tendencies efficiencies stuff like that's going to be on the defensive side of the ball. We're gonna be talking about Jim swertz and win. He likes to blitz and how that works out for them. We're also to be talking about the new analytical hires around the league and wise, take Doug on long for the league to catch up with that trend. That's up next here on blue degree nation with Matt Manchurian, Bryce Rossler myself. Michael kissed will be right back right after this. Hey, I'm Spencer hall. I'm Holly Anderson. I'm Ryan nanny. I'm Jason Kirk. And we're the host of the shutdown full cast your avengers of college football podcast. It says in the script onto riff on what that means and basically, what I mean is already spoiled every Tuesday we talk about everything from cooking. Disasters to pro wrestling, too unfashionable pants worn middle school. We also do talk about college football every now and then, like mascot fights announcers, fleeing the early and unfashionable pants that coaches where now if you want to take college football, exactly as seriously as it should be taken subscribe for free on apple podcasts or in your favorite podcast app. And we are back here on bleeding green nation. We are talking with the boys from sports. Info solutions, Matt manager in Bryce Rossler. Let's talk about some defense I was talking about before the break here. We're gonna talk about some blitz tendencies, and officiency. Now, I have written this up for blading your nation dot com before and I'm hoping this holds true because coming into the two thousand eighteen season. You know, I said that Schwartz's blitz packages for a bit of a mixed bag. And I, I know there were certain spots that he liked to bring heat more so than not, because he's not a big Blitzer. At least compared to the rest of the league is usually in the bottom half. He likes to get there with four with the eagles, you can kind of do that. But in certain situations like the third in mid third manageable around there, sometimes thirty long. He likes to come with that cover zero. You know, the heavy heavy blitz and sometimes it can be a little below telegraphed for the offenses, and they can kind of take advantage of its own interested to see how they did, and what might have changed in two thousand eighteen what are you folk have forced day? As far as the eagles puts tendencies, so your assertion about what they do in third in medium, third. Manageable is spot on the test matches the numbers in third short, which we defined as one two or three yards to go on third down. He sending five plus Russia's thirty six percent of the time third medium, twenty nine percent of the time in third wrong thirty percent of the time elsewhere. He's not really sending a lot of people on first down. He's not a big Blitzer. Only nine percent. The time on I ten only seventeen percent of the time on second long. So he's really just sending the house on those money dads that makes a ton of size that beneficient for him without efficient for him last year. I know there were issues with the secondary that can kind of play around with your success rates there. But overall how how did they fare, so third and short when they were sending five or more? Their success rates were not great about forty percent for both third short in third and long. Third medium. They did a lot better. They had a seventy two percent success rate when they were sending five plus in those situations, which is third. Four third by thirty six and they had about, well, exactly. Thirty eight of those situations in twenty eight teen so Bryce, it looks like I'm really smart about the eagles in their blitz. Is that correct? Tell me I'm smart tummy. I'm smart now. The she'll Matt anything that I got one thing I'll add to it. So looking at something some research, actually, John Shirley's been working on lately. He's kind of making a case for the covers zero blitz. I agree. I was with some of those teams in world with Greg Williams, the own with those euro blitzes in, you know, the feast and famine that will provide we've seen that with Jim short certainly over at different times in his career. He'll come with that. Like you said, I you know, the more you look at the numbers on the cover zero, and it's one of these things like we talk about a passing versus rushing and should pass more. But we don't know exactly what that balance point. Is it look? Looks like teams should be running cover zero more because with the amount that it's being run right now. It's looking like one of the most efficient coverages basically pressure is good blitzing helps get pressure. And if you can rush six guys, it's you have a better chance to get into the quarterback rushing five or four. And then when you look at the boom and bust rate, which is what everybody thinks anything covers zero. We can't give up that stuff. Eat down the field. Yeah. It seems to have an impact on how often people are getting targeted over the middle, but it's having much less of an impact than you think in terms of giving up really these deep shot plays that you think of as being the risk that, that covers Eero entails, you know, it's an interesting case to be made right there kind of for another more aggressive tactic. But in this case, we're talking about the defense as opposed to the offense, finding ways to kind of take it to them and limit the, you know, the, the expectation over the course of the drop yet to add onto what you were saying a lot of teams tend to send the house more in the red zone and go line situations. Because they don't have to worry about that deep part. So even when you take that out cover zero still being still proving highly effective in the field. And I would imagine that's because, you know, you're get you. So you're, you're brigands six guys knew got five guys in coverage. Typically it's man coverage across the board. A lot of those guys are in off covered. So what does the offense gonna take on third and five while they're probably gonna take something like a slant, because it's a risk to wait for something like a Haas concept like curl, you know, and then you have a nine route from the inside going one on one yet, the wait for that ton cover? You don't always have that time with covers hero, because, you know, you're bringing six, so I think that might be another reason to that. The offenses are just gonna take what's there and the defense can kind of like mitigate the wrist, just by knowing how conservative offense might be in those situations depending on the team. I love the point that you're making the point you're making is that you're actually doing something that's less risky. And there's a good reason for it because by doing this you can be dictating to the offense. So say you know that the offense is gonna. Oh hot. If you bring a certain blitz in certain situation, if you know that they're going to go hot on third and seven and all you gotta do is make tackling your off the field. Then all the sudden your dictating the action as the defense by, by bringing that pressure you by knowing the rules by knowing the adjustment to the adjustment you can sort of dictate these sorts of things like what you're talking about and say, hey, they're answering the situation is the hot if they throw hot here we win. Let's go. Let's do it. You don't go bro taking a profit on offense or defense. And another situation where swertz that will have to get into one day, and, and we don't have time for it now. But I, I would love an analytical breakdown of the vaunted picket fence defense that Jim Schwartz loves to deploy kind of tinkered with last season made some improvements. But it's like the bane of eagles fans. They absolutely hate on third and fifteen got like the three on the line. You've got the one roaming linebacker, and then everyone else's literally lined up at the sticks, and they just come up and rallying. Typically, it's worked for him, but eagles fans hated anyway. And I'm tired of defending. For it. So that was a good chat on blitzes, and Tennessee's efficiencies for the eagles. The covers zero blitz may build a little film breakdown with that as well. Coming up soon for bleeding greenish dot com. But Matt one thing I wanted to talk about before we go here is on the off the charts podcast which is your show with Aaron shots of football outsiders. You mentioned that the eagles front office, saying that Howie Roseman does a good job of marrying, the coaches analytics departments and evaluation departments together, and you also mentioned air injure berry, who the eagles recently hired who is a quote unquote football guy with an analytical slant. And he's a name to keep an eye on moving forward, even with the promotion of annual. So while the eagles are continually restocking the cupboard and keeping their bench strong. You're just now starting to see teams really ramp up their analytical staffs, like for instance the Carolina Panthers just brought in their first ever director of football. Analytics, that was I believe it was Taylor. Rajak who David Tepper brought in for that position. The eagles mind you. From the eagles. That's correct. Yeah. So in Philadelphia like a higher, like Barry as much as I liked, it was kind of, like whole home. That's just what they do. The panthers. Grab somebody lower on the totem pole in its news because of their resistance to it before has the pace of change when it comes to this type of thing excel, A-Rated, or is it still the same painstaking process around the league for them to adjust it is definitely, you know, an exponential curve. It is if you read, Malcolm, glad wells, the tipping point for a long time, it's been like watching paint dry, just molasses. Paid seeing teams Dopp to and wanna wanna be more forward thinking with this kind of stuff, and there are still some people there that are just stuck that they aren't going to be the people that ever tip that are going to hang into place, and both those are going to be, you know, statues that are going to be there for a while. But in terms of seeing the pace of adoption. I mean, it's, it's like you know, if you looked at the chart of it the derivative would just be going off the charts right now is more. More people are adopting. And when you get five people that adopt, and then they start talking to their friends, and then they start sharing articles, it has a way of feeding itself, and we're seeing more and more. It's going straight to the level of ownership where people are finding out about this and seeing all this great research, that's being done. And they, they can't turn a blind eye to it anymore. So we're seeing just a whole new atmosphere. And, you know the eagles are great because they're right out in front of it. They've been they've been they've had an infrastructure in place. I think you're lucky to be able to say, you know, a great hire is whole home. That's how you know, your place what has to change for, like, for the league to adopt guns and stop fighting people with swords. Like I just I just don't understand why for instance, someone like the Redskins can rank one hundred twenty first out of one hundred twenty second in ESPN studies about analytical departments. They're in the same division as the eagles. The eagles heavily involved in antics, when is Super Bowl, and it's taking them this. Long to hire anybody. You're seeing the ravens start to ramp up their staff and whatnot. Like what does it hurt? What's the barrier that you have to break through to say, none of this hurts, you, you can still just like dismiss it at the end of the day and go with your gut, or whatever cutter any of these other dinosaur coaches with these backwards thinking when a believe what what's the burger breakthrough or you just like look just this is good information spent some money on it, it might help you. It's helped the lot of people around the league Bill Belichick has been getting over with analytics for the longest time now, a now, just even getting worse, like who when what needs to be done. Yeah. I mean it you'd think that losing to the patriots year after year after year teams decided they got tired of losing, and they'd start to do more to to think outside the box here. So I couldn't agree with you more. But I mean as far as complaining about the Washington football team where they are with all these yet. It's, it's, it's prehistoric type stuff and it's it's living in the past, and it's being stubborn. And what's. The name of their franchise again. Oh boy. Michael buffer called me on Twitter for this. I, I already said at once though, the, the Washington, you get it, you know, who they and I don't see that to make a political point. But I say that to be like, oh, really this team living in the past, like, okay? That's that's great. I love the way that you did that. Did you know that Michael buffer called me out on that? I did not know about that. But, but he's a friend of. Yeah. On my birthday. He added MI Michael kissed, you know, love your work, but the term Redskin was used and game like the etymology in the in the history of the word. So I thought you were setting me up for something like that. I thought Bryce veggie that diabolical Kreis calmly shaking his head right now. But, but I, I like that comparison, like, yeah, of course, the team still use that word for their team name is the one that ranks hundred twenty first out of a hundred and twenty second in the NFL for or, you know, in the sports world for analytical departments, that's, that's a creek way to put that Matt any, any other any other thoughts or anything grinding your gear is going on around the, the analytical worlds that I catch a mood or you good right now you've got me in a good mood today. He called me to, to that. You know, it's always fun, watching the, the whole conversation on Twitter and seeing analytics, Twitter fantasy Twitter and. Kind of whatever you call old school Xs and os football all that kind of stuff and the intersection of all these different people, sometimes yelling at each other. But I've actually could sit in a room with to these people. They would totally agree in wanted just big each other's brains. And so it's always wants me, but, but at least the conversation, I think we're all learning out there. So as much as we disagree at certain times with different people, I think the discourse is fun met one last time. Let the gentlest news.

BGN Radio on twitter at BGN underscore. Radio coming up we're going to hear from Doug Peterson and Carson Wentz. Their news conferences immediately immediately. After the game on Sunday against the New England Patriots Eagles. GOING DOWN Seventeen ten. Obviously and we'll also hear from Doug Peterson and his Monday afternoon. News Conference Prince after he had had twenty four hours to reflect upon the ugliness of the eagles seventeen ten loss to the New England patriots. And before we jump into all of that me. Just give you my three. Two things about Sunday's action and maybe looking ahead a little bit too here and obviously there's a lot of blame to go around and it's mostly on the offensive side of the ball on lane. Johnson's injury I think on Sunday hurt more than anything else. They came into the game undermanned without Alshon and without Jordan Howard but I really feel like they could have made it work if lane Johnson in had also suffered a concussion during the game in their last ten drives of the game the Eagles had seven punts a fumble as well as a turnover on downs and then failed Hail Mary married and the offense as a whole average. Three point eight six yards per play on Sunday that's the lowest in any game that Carson Wentz has started and that includes his rookie year. But it's Dame's saves angle of NBC. Sports Philly noted in the Eagles I three drives when Lane Johnson was in the game. They had one hundred and forty seven net yards and ten points including that. It's unbelievably long. Ninety five yard touchdown drive without lane. Johnson they had seven drives had thirty six net yards. Words in those seven drives obviously did not score a single point and we saw the eagles abandoned the running game in the game and a lot of that. I'm sure had to do with lane. Johnson I don't I think they. They certainly did not give the ball to a two mile sanders enough in the running game. It's it's criminal that he only got four touches in the second half and that's on Doug that's that's on Doug that's on Duce Staley. That's on Mike Grow. That's on the coaching staff. In a game. That was close in a game in which we knew the eagles were going to have trouble passing the ball against and outstanding new England secondary we knew that New England handsome weakness against the run and in a game that was closed. It's not like the Patriots. were up by two or three touchdowns where they had to throw the ball forty five times on Sunday they could have continued to run the ball. Why does Mile Sanders? Only get four touches. Well I mean I think they certainly should have utilized him in the the passing game war and got him involved that way but even running the ball they completely abandoned the run in the second half really for no good reason whatsoever it now but the only only reason that makes any sense as they had no beliefs that they could actually run the ball without Lane Johnson in the game and halvard divide tie clearly did not do as well L. is Lane Johnson. The play it at right tackle dropped off significantly once lane. When I'm that's to be expected lane is one of the best tackles in all of football but their inability or failure leader run was in large part two lanes absence and I think that enable the Patriots to focus more on stopping what was left of the eagles receiving core and that really left the eagles with very few options on offense? And so I to me the Lane Johnson. Injury hurt more than Alshon Jeffery. Because let's be honest Sean. Hasn't been playing well. He hasn't hasn't really been all that productive on the outside. They certainly missed him on Sunday. I was hoping that the bye week. He'd come back healthier from the bye week and be able to give this team more production in the second certainly didn't expect him to be out for Sunday's game and we don't know what his status is moving forward Jordan Howard. Certainly hopefully you get him back on the field on Sunday but would they have used Jordan Howard. More on Sunday with Lean Johnson going up would Jordan Howard have gotten more than four touches in the second half would he have gotten more than four carries in the second half when Lee Johnson was out. I'm not so I'm sure that he would have so at the end of the day. The Jordan Howard injury really didn't matter all that much on Sunday because they just abandoned the run and not only didn't lanes absence affect the amount. They ran around the ball it also resulted in Carson Wentz. Getting a lot more pressure. Ron Gorski noted this on twitter. Carson Wentz had forty eight drawbacks of New England. I mean first of all forty eight drawbacks x with that wide receiving core is just an idiotic thing to do but he was under pressure or duress for twenty two of those plays. That's forty five point. Eight percent of his dropbox. He was under pressure lane. Johnson's departure not only hurt them in the running game at hurt them in the passing game. Carson Wentz was the siege all day and saw list note on twitter too. And I forgive me I forget who put this up. But since he entered the league went has a passer rating of ninety eight when Johnson is on the field. It's seventy nine point. Eight without Lane Johnson on the field lane. Johnson matters a whole lot to this eagles offense and I think his absence him having to leave the game early on Sunday. It was the biggest reason why the offense was not able to score so that brings us to our second point. What is Carson Wentz right now? Nine for twenty four in the Second Half Carson Wentz twenty three percent on third down. It's a huge problem. You can't win games in. You're only converting twenty three percent of your your third down conversions and he has no help right now there's no doubt about the Carson. Wentz has absolutely no help right now. That's why it all that much more important to hit the easy throws when you actually do have them in Carson Wentz on Sunday missed at least three easy throws too much to to my recollection and I know there were more but he missed that long. Pass to Mac Collins early in the game him that deep has remained collins actually got open actually made a nice move and with streaking down the sideline and Carson missed him terribly. I mean even before the ball was halfway in the Air Carson knew he missed the throne was jogging off the field and then in the final drive once they got that first down deep into England territory to passes on first and third down to Zakar. It's were just terrible. Throws he's got to hit those throws he's inconsistent in the pocket but as you heard me mentioned a minute ago he was under duress forty five point eight percent of the time. That's that's a problem right now. With the way the wide receiving core is and the way this offenses moving the ball. He has to hit all the easy place he cannot miss easy place. It would have been understandable if Carson Wentz has a fifty percent completion rate. And he's throwing he's throwing on target but his receivers are just not open in New England is batting down balls or contesting everything. That's kind of what I expect on the rare occasions when he has an easy throw. He's got him he's got to hit them and listen I'm Pro Carson Carson Wentz. I'm not. I'm not one of the nick. Foles guys. But you've got to be able to criticize the quarterback when he doesn't play well and he didn't play. Well they're paying is one of the top five paid quarterbacks in football. He's got to play that way at times. So he's too up and down right now and I think he was trying to force a lot of things he was obviously pressing for a lot of the game he. He knows that everything is riding on his shoulders. And he's got to be able to stop doing that. He's gotta be able to put that aside and just take what they're hit the easy throws and he held onto the ball too along at times got sacked a couple of times. Obviously the fumble can't happen just to up and down to Jekyll and Hyde with Carson wentz. Right now I think it's eventually he'll be fine. I think once he has as an actual offense around him when they can be in rhythm when they can get something going. He'll be fine but this offense has not had a rhythm with with Carson Wentz at quarterback since the game against the rams were he got hurt they have not been able to figure out a rhythm with Carson Wentz in two thousand eighteen or two thousand nineteen no rhythm whatsoever to this offense. I don't think Doug Peterson knows what place to call with Carson in there. I don't think the offense knows how to execute with Carson Wentz in there right now. They've got to fix that that's not not a carson wentz thing necessarily. It's on the coaching staff. The whole offense does not flow right now and they've got to figure out an offense that works with Carson Wentz a strength. Why are they not rolling him out more? Why are they not putting him on the move more? Why with with Lane Johnson? Why are they not rolling protection away from from Hollywood boulevard vitae in that situation and they've got to figure out a way to use Carson's play making ability with his legs? More quarterback trawls I everybody's worried about Carson wentz getting hurt I don't don't think Carson Wentz is going to get hurt on a quarterback draw. He's going to get hurt. Getting tackled in the pocket and getting his and getting his legs caught underneath somebody. So Carson has no talent around him. I don't I think the coaching staff is is is doing is doing right by him at the moment but he they he's also got to play better he's gotta get more from guys like Dallas Goddard. I mean the eagles went out in the second round last year two years ago and and drafted Dallas knowing they already had Zakar. It's a tight end because they believed this was going to be a huge matchup problem. Problem for for Defenses Has Dallas Qatar other than in the running game using twelve personnel has Dallas got. It created a mismatch problem. Maybe he hasn't. I'm not seeing I would love to hear kissed and Solex talk a little bit more about this on one of the. KFI shows coming up but where has got its impact in the passing game. He did catch a touchdown on Sunday. That's and that's important But he had three catches for thirty six yards. He was targeted six times in the game. I mean when you know that the that the Patriots are going to focus so much of their attention on Zach. ERTZ HURTS DALLAS. Got It has to be your won. A tight end there and being more productive he had a number of drops in the game. A number for of drops in the game and that has been a pattern for him. He has dropped. He has been a guy who drops passes. So I mean he yes. He caught the only touchdown on Sunday. I think that's important. They've been trying trying to use them in the screen game a little bit more. They need to do more of that. He needs to have more of an impact on the field. That's the whole reason. You spent a second pick was took for him to make an impact in the passing game name and it hasn't happened yet here. In season number two final thing. The defense is definitely coming around and this is encouraging. We were thinking that the defense maybe was only only looking good. Because they played Mitch Trubisky and Josh Allen in the two previous weeks will they they shut down. Tom Brady and the New England offense the Patriots one of their touchdowns came on a trick play with Julian Edelman. Throwing the football gym shorts actually schemed up against the Patriots. More press coverage in this game knowing that New England doesn't have deep threat they actually he actually Saul what the Patriots had and didn't have in schemed up a defense to stop. What the he knew that the Patriots were going to do more press coverage? I hope we see more of that. Because because he actually he had cornerbacks getting in wide receiver spaces may not all game but more of it. It was a change up something different and we see with Jalen mills and Ronald Darby on the field together. Together that it's just such an improved secondary jalen mills has been really good since he came back. I don't know how he grades Gordon to Pfm. I'm sure he's missed some place. I'm sure he's done some things wrong. The the secondary they've gotta make some plays with interceptions. They had a chance to intercept at least three passes on Sunday and just have no ability to come down with the football but at least they're breaking up passes and what we saw was the eagles tightening up in the Red Zone on Sunday enforcing field goals instead of touchdowns. That's that had been a staple staple of Jim Schwarz's defense yet. Teams might get inside the thirty on them but they would stiffen up near the goal line enforce teams in field goals. We saw that with New England on Sunday. That's Jim Schwartz Defense Specialty. And that's what happened. That's what we hadn't been seeing in the last few weeks take teams had been converting those trips inside the red zone into touchdowns. We're also seeing more more from the defensive line and it grew. We're finally starting to see Fletcher Cox make a little bit more of an impact Brandon. Graham make more of an impact. Derek Barnett again. Got Close to a sack. Couldn't bring Tom Brady down on on that. One unplayed words just seemed like he was gonNA swallow him up. Barnett's gotTA figure out a way to finish. Some of these plays here but overall the defense played very good game come agree Jay Hill popped up on the on on the TV. A few different times and I know he graded graded out well and it goes the eagles third-highest graded defensive player on Sunday. Look good that you got to be pleased with what you've seen from the eagles defense vents. And maybe that's a reason for optimism moving forward anyway. Let's hear what Doug Peterson had to say about Sunday's action and we'll hear from Carson Wentz as well and then we'll get a Doug Peterson's thoughts after he'd had twenty four hours to reflect on the eagles seventeen to ten loss to the New England patriots.

Obviously shortly after the along dries I assume that didn't go as you projected Denied having Jordan all Sean Affect Pack your It affects you You know In in a few ways but You know I thought I thought that Really to that that long drive score was obviously some positive Nice little mix there run pass. We stayed kind of positive. Also ahead ahead of the chain first and second down really at that point I felt like that. You know we we. We channel found ourselves going backwards a little bit any games like this too. I mean you know the the penalties whether they're pre snap or you know During the play obviously obviously the turnovers and then you know just lack of production overall is an offense really kind of kept us a kind of stymied in the message to the team. The guys the disappointed they're frustrated. You know they understand that. We're we're better football team than than what we played tonight and You know it is just We just have to as coaches. We got a coach better. Obviously we understand that we have played better. We didn't make enough plays. The defense really kept us in this football game for the most part And in in an office we failed to execute knowing end Something the guy's really pride themselves on we all do in in Just just not enough. I don't drive but got down there. yeah thought. Overall he really was was was into the into the game. Plan into the game You know made made some good decisions. I think you know where where it kind of was hard for. The offense was really the first and second down. The success we've had leading up to. This game was positive. First and second down and we're into many second laws and third law. Today you know no. That's that's hard Is Hard for recording. Put Your quarterback in that position is you know you're gonNA throw the ball and You know routes you're a little bit deeper things like that but a lot overall role for the most part played played pretty. Well obviously. We'll watch it tomorrow. You make a better assessment short offense but it's like one times you offense was in the huddle calling the line until ten seconds left on on the play clock UPTEMPO I mean. Why do you think that was the plan and fusion? Now's the plant was headed view. The ideal scenario out tonight tonight and then Probably in the morning that changed anything. Because you're on the change weaving laying out out. Yeah no no. I didn't change it. I think some of the younger received tomorrow. Let you let you're thirty nine. Did you consider call. Or their field. Position chooses the Hor- axelle up against a match. They just quick observations that they played well. You know Obviously they're good football team passing team that did make some plays as but overall I thought we we held up. I think Jordan Mathews handles big role for just getting that. Yeah indeed dispute thanks You know you'd like to really again back to. Let's see the film tomorrow but you know eat eat. He knew the office. You the new the game plan you know. I didn't shy away from anything you can play. Call they speaking justice at the half events no defense Throughout the whole game third long. Run the ball as much as Atlanta landed. Where you always like to maybe a few more times you know Sometimes game like this when it's again you're either second or second eleven. Maybe second nine It you're not staying ahead and that's that was kind of our struggle in the ring game tonight. Something we look at it and fixed buffoonish says not to use drawings just to the carn- round for Friday injures Manning's on you know we still game plan the same we feel like that You know with with Zack in Dallas and we can do some things obviously with our runners miles in again it. Listen give give them credit. They did a nice job on defense taking those players away and we knew that coming into this game and we just didn't make place so from a game plan standpoint. We went about it the same way and then then used used if you don't formations tried to move some guys around and try to try to free up some of the some of the routes Jordan's always miss You know players in in. He's one of Sean there sproles and all those guys too but this is football and and You know you get a coach of the guys again now. Jenkins Columbia could challenge. Yes supposedly forward progress whistleblower for progress. So you look at it or the guy who tell value whether they thought that was obviously. Yeah but it was. It was a mute mute point. That's on I five. Second half they come out. Go huddle Zoe awesome. Yeah you know something to yet Good No-ho team and Just just just caught us Caught us in the situation where where we were allowed position on on the on the double pass and it was just well excused by them. GOING UPTEMPO offense offensively. Yeah but again you know you can go up boy. Want if you're you know if you're moving ball and I felt like in the second half. We weren't doing that so it was in hard to really get into kind of ridable miniature. What's using took? The offense beat ditch. What makes you think it's GonNa be better? There's more firepower. Well we've proven that I mean we've proven it when we have everybody healthy. I mean everybody We haven't had to sean season. And but we have you know your guys out there without Sean out there in Jordan. We've proven that now we've we've been able to execute in visit. Listen this is a good football team. Defense Great Third Down Defense where we third three thirteen eighteen or something like that on third down we knew that going into this football game. So yeah you'd love to have all your gas. This national football league and in the next man has to step above make plays and again tonight. We didn't we didn't do that a lot. I have. You know I think a couple of times It might be. They might have been the case but again was so much again with so much man to man coverage In some cover to stuff that you gotta do a better undergone perimeter in the actual the turn overhead which. We can't be doing that. I got to be better than that. lesson plays out there. missed some throws penalties. That's football sometimes. But not my dad we gotta clean that up county. You're driving added added. Twenty white happened on this. Next just explains just missed a couple. MISCUES you know they made place to you know. They made a couple of plays in hats off to them. They had a really good game. Plan especially there But that's frustrating especially the way we we we re moved bogging down there and then we were stagnant there at the end especially on how they do a good job of kind of keeping a simple civil but what they do really well and you know mix enough demand coverage and how they play. Their leverage is and techniques and What they do with safeties and all that and they throw in cover to in there as well and mixing some pressures and they do a really good job you know they do a good job but You know I thought we were. We were ready for repair. We didn't execute a wellness. Johnson's also injury affecting is that long. Drive site coordinator going after the. I mean I don't really know the Status Lane was going Ana form but You know not to discredit lane at all because it means you are probably the best right tackle in football but We feel we have a really good really adept at that position and big vehicles step in a ton of confidence in him so I don't think that was the deal. Breaker enemies aren't Alaska touchdown. That last past Mary She didn't even get they're thinking you've got to go got to I didn't really see it You know they brought cover zero and Try to try to give him a chance and just just missed it or anything. Reason was the lack of execution offensively. Couldn't get started. Yeah it's hard to say you know right now we'll go back and watch the tape as you know as we always say but You know like I said they had a really good plan there. They always do You know there's a a really good defense so hats off to them. They did a great job taking away some things that we wanted to do. It's frustrating because we came out. You know pretty hot you know. We didn't convert that I drive but got three points that went down and scored Than those it you know. That was our offense so hats off to them. They play great great defensive game but we'd be better on on that last guys getting a couple of Mississippi had coming in Tom trying to remember Yeah those are there's two Definitely Yard said. I think we'd both want have back snot on same page a little bit. And when I when I'm definitely missed I got to be better in the situation. It'd be better and put it on him. Give him a chance. You know they. They made a couple of good place on the other ones. Yeah I guess it is frustrating to be right there and then you know failed. XQ For sure. The Sean Tower something by find out the cups that affect the offense. I mean those guys are great. Players says a great players You you know they mean a lot to this offense but Kind of the same thing I said in regards Lane Johnson with with Big v Stephanie. We have lost confidence in Jamie being back here and step in and in. Jj getting more reps and You Know Miles Boston. Stepping up so Had A lot of confidence in those guys. I thought they did well today. After against the tape But you know. I don't think that was the difference maker either Carson. Sometimes you guys allow pets. Hapu helps doesn't seem like that way today was advocacy of the newer guys. There maybe wasn't as easy to do I think it was maybe part of it. I think you know also just what the Patriots do in and how they play defensively. We saw Which scheme it better you know? Getting Huddle and everything and So yeah that just wasn't a huge part of our game plan. The questions about lack of power are not questions. What makes you think it's different sir? I mean for me you know I see all these guys practice you know and I think You know everyone in here. Public doesn't get to see that and so I have a lot of confidence in the guys that When when their numbers called it there make plays and obviously we haven't put it on on the film on put on the field? I know I definitely want a couple of back today. But like I said I could see his practice to work with them and I have a ton of confidence that that will be there and we'll get it going to handle the first half hygiene Q.. Why discourage ball you know? They had some good coverages and stuff but I got involved with that want to stay in the huddle and uh-huh scheme things. That just seem a lot of times coming out of the huddle with ten seconds left on on clay clock. I mean is that an optimum amount of time to Kinda diagnosed with the show You know I mean to. We'd all say we'd love to get out of the huddle it's twenty seconds left and that you know let's that's always would be ideal but that's just not the way the game does sometimes there's always A lot of things. A lot of moving pieces personnel Getting lined up all that stuff so Without a doubt. It's something that we want to be better at but You know with the heads inflows slows. The game you know that tends to happen some time actually. Yeah I mean. It's always tough to go ninety five or whatever We're able to do it. Second drive you know and I thought that was really big for us and Give some confidence there but I guess we you just stalled out too many times and get patriots. Do they did a great job. Defensively special teams wise which didn't get it done in second half really shut down Yeah I wouldn't necessarily say again off to watch day but I don't think that did anything kind of crazy easy we just kind of Didn't make our place you know and I like I said earlier starts at me. I gotta be better. I got disturbed. Better get rid of it We got to be able to stay ahead of the chains chains. And all those things but like I said it starts with me and You know we'll get it fixed. GotTa Defense obviously had him for a very busy interplay like between you know when they would come off. There was the difference played great. You know hats off to already fence. playing the way they did today we didn't make it easy on 'em offensively a handful of times uh-huh but they play great so that's always that much more frustrating for us as an offense to to know our defense played the way they did. We didn't help them out. Author August third downs. That's terrible yeah. That's not something that we some though. We definitely pride ourselves on third down we didn't. We didn't do it well today. Plain simple you know they they. They outplayed us on that down. You know I got fooled a couple of times I got to be better like I said it starts with me but Yes she that's something that we got hard. Look at and get fixed working on that long drive between the person the second quarters. Why couldn't you guys stand that? After I wish I wish I knew the answer to that You know I do drives you know. We have the big penalty and everything in the second Dr We were just able to mix it up as well with the run game the screens and Just converting on third downs in in seemed after that we Kinda just didn't ask you to to the level that we expect to and then we need to against a good team like that you share Dr Chung. Please how hard is it a long time. Yeah and that is tough especially against a good defense in you know being able to take trump plays in get explosive plays We gotta keep in creating five and find ways to do that But at the same time you know it seems to be recipes to grind it out. Ball control Run throw just moved those sorts of things and When you make a couple of mistakes like we did today like the fumble ahead and those types things make stuff worship? Hi Good afternoon guys. Uh scored at the end of the game. which contacted point? Yeah I collaborate. I just felt like at that time to defense played outstanding. I mean outside of the start of the third quarter where they went down and scored and they scored on trick play. Our defense played really well. They punted the rest of the game so I felt like at that point. You you tie the game a chance. Maybe to go to overtime win at their protocol. The protocol you can get it was he came out after that touchdown drive. I don't know specifically what the play was but after that drive that he came to the sideline sideline and we checked him in had put him in the protocol woodstoves protocol while still is still early. So it's it's I guess. State one of the five stage program so state one. I know it's Kinda hard meeting to fi but how much of the offensive struggles. After he went out were because he was. I mean it affected the run game a little bit From the standpoint of you know him and Brandon working together and getting those reps during the week still got a lot of confidence obviously big V. He he filled in there But that you know it's it's awesome you're talking about a A Pro bowl caliber. You know right right tackle. And then he and Brandon together some great things in so It affects you a little bit you know with the ranking getting Dillard ribs on that so you know going into the game obviously he was you know. JP Status during the week obviously is he was still working at left tackle but moving forward award if if you know again depending on lane slain status at the end of the week the plan will be to to to work dillard at right tackle Jason Anyway. The more agents defense was out there with passable. Yes all the above You know some of it was lane but but you know it's not all on on that you know injury. Obviously it happens during during the game. The other thing was just we did struggle to Kinda get positive yards run game You know in sustain positive yards and in we might have one good play and then we might I take a step back or there was a penalty and so you know and then to as the game progressed. I felt like that in order for us to kind of get ourselves in position to score entire. We we needed to find an explosive play and so the passing game became a little more important at that time that mile sooners similar to provide that for they. Were you trying to get involved in the passing game with the Patriots Modeling uppers. Yeah we were and and of course the Patriots you know they. They put the a DB on him linebacker on him. A couple of times As as they did. Zack from the door to the game So yeah they schemed him up as well and and But yet wasn't for lack of try our on and Jordan looking for next week right now you know Each one is is. They're they're doing well. We'll have another injury report on Wednesday. Obviously after after the the practice there but not gonna go into a lot of detail with either one of them but but both of them are are are progressing nicely back at ISM it would have been hectic catch it would have been a hectic catch. dangle. He was on and I don't know if the if the wind moved the ball at all he's having to bend back over kind of over his shoulder it would have been. It would have been a spectacular. No catch either got it and you know. He's I'm sure he's beating himself up for not making Dillard when you say he'll he'll practice on the right side this week. If they can't go with the starters I or the with the stars and slow to clarify it starts to Gyp dollop some extra pressure of good deal braiding. which is that? Generally he gets the ball as well since being to the growing confidence in the back end that they can hold their own little healthier. The're does yeah. I think that's what you see with the with the you know the health of Darby now at Jalen back there von back in there In Rodney Malcolm those guys so it does help when when you can hold up on the perimeter ought to be able to dial up a few more pressures in and get to the quarterback in E.. Got It you have to do that. against against quarterbacks to try to try to disrupt some time its plan for giant this week I mean obviously signed on Friday so those as soon as I mean. Obviously we've you sign up late so you know. It was just kind of emergency situation if we needed him. You know in that football game yesterday but it will will incorporate him. You know if Again again if Jordan Lane she you know doesn't practice or whatever during the weekdays and we definitely will get Jay ready to go. It was repaired in contact up until Friday he. He wasn't cleared for contact but he was working individual drills so we had optimistic. We were optimists that the interrupted mystic that he was going to maybe be available for the game. That's why it was later in the week early on that. That wants to take anyway. I think I think you know when he looks at this game and and I'm sure he already has that there were opportunity thirty the rapport between the passing game To to to to make to make someplace. I think that he would agree with re with that in just really you know. He doesn't have to feel like that he has to make all the place you know even though he touches the ball and he is quarterback and we asked him to do a lot. Just let the offense miscount work in in in let the guys around you make the place. You know what I'm saying so you know I think that's that's a that's a takeaway and you don't have to feel. I think maybe as a game progress we kinda now maybe felt like there was a little bit of oppressing going on. You know like we're trying to make that play against that great defense and and you really don't have to do that. Just let things let let things unfold and I can do a better job as far as maybe being a little more patient and run game and helping them out that way and and that's a takeaway that you know. Obviously each week that I I look out for myself and and yet In it and I keep going back to and it's not about one guy as you know it takes eleven on offense so we gotta do better upfront in protection. Obviously in the backseat. GotTa do better job there as well and then and then our guys have to get open. So there's a combination of a lot of things things that We can all take away from this game. Did you see any examples. When he was on the ball on the pocket could find guys open when maybe you could either extended the play by moving? US advocate getting guys to around or I mean there's always those opportunities Patriots head a lot a lot of line games and stunts throughout the game and there were a couple of free runners On on our quarterback. And so you know you're trying to go timing and rhythm with the throw and next thing you know. He's is being disrupted by a game. Those are all things that we can. We can fix and work on You know this week because we see the same same style again Michelle CBS. It seems like I got away from the rising second-half Nine carries a reason for that. I think again just Trying to find that explosive. Play In in kind of like what we had in the first half I mean we had. We did have a nice balance as you mentioned and but at the same time you know for me I was I was looking for that and there were opportunities because we we started getting even though Dallas dropped. The one pass you know those deep cross routes were starting to kind of come opening their man coverage we hit some in breaking routes. We had some opportunities there and so he kept for me. I kept going back to those types of plays in in So you know trying to hopefully get that explosive play and in mixed the run in after that you know Throughout the course forced the second half and then once we got later in the game we were more in a two minute mode obviously trying trying to get ourselves in position. School does seem like this more. Open guys that he he has the best of that and if so any any ideas. What's happening there? Well I think I think there's always opportunity to hit you. Know more receivers me during a game. You know in each week's a little bit different circumstances for different you know has protection the rush all that stuff can affect act can affect your eyes can affect your movement pocket. It can affect accuracy. I mean that's just all part of playing the position playing this game. The other thing is we have to do a better job. of of coaching. You know our skill guys Versus demand bump and run things like that. Keep working that in practice Presenting that picture properly in practice and and that's really the only way you continue to get better in I if you do more of that than then you'll be better off in games that is on is on Carson or you say it's really just on. Its on everybody on everybody. Because it's not just the quarterback position even though again it seems like the quarterback always gets kind of either the credit or the blame. But it's still takes the protection. We miss the backs. I mean you look at the backs and we miss them protection there right or get edge just a little bit and and with some of the Games and things like that that all disrupts rubs timings according to the timing of the quarterback. So there's enough to go around that that In coming out of this game things that didn't show up. Maybe in the last two games the last three games but showed up in this game that we can get better moving forward. So he's got a lot of long drives this year and you had the sixteen play drive that up like nine minutes and you mentioned earlier about you know not being able to hit on. This trump plays cer- from the quarterback perspective. How difficult is it for for the quarterback sort of had the sustain those long drives and almost kind of be perfect On Wall. Yeah I mean if you look at our average field position you know the starting field position. It wasn't great. You know it was We'll back you know Eighty plus yards on most of them. I it's hard in this in this league. Push against good defenses is hard to go you know. Eighty I five yards all the time and and try to score so you love to you know And we had opportunities defense to create some turnovers too. So you know that those two things go hand in hand So the field position game is important. You know in a felt like especially in the second half where we felt backed up which were and then putting in you're getting the ball around midfield and then putting again and we're backed up again so you know those are all things that You know those are their heart. Ms Hard to Overcome and especially sustained multiple drives of say eighty plus yard Carson was horrible self about the fumble with this has come up a few times now this season last season. What are you seeing? The fumbles. Well it was just it was unfortunately he got hit right on the arm on the hand in the ball. The ball came out. Obviously you know you don't like that and you don't want that deep in your in your own end like that but you know we just. We just continued preach wall security to all our players all our skill guys and and You know When we chance to coach him up? We'll coach them up on progression play and and try to help him in. That situation. Turnovers work did you make at that. Call to say for progress on the bumbled chickens. Yeah I guess. Whistle blew forward. Progress was stopped and the Nike Dubai to charge personnel. which is always always available will ask you? What is organizational thinking behind bringing back some players that either the eagles or that previously us well when when when when when you look at the big picture league-wide of all the you know talent players who are out there who maybe have worked out for other teams? Maybe not you know. Obviously they're not signed anywhere right now. there are a lot of good players out there But at the same time when when it comes down to two guys that can come in and help us right now so she jay situation They've they've been part of our system. They know our culture. They know our offense or if it's a defensive player of the no no our defensive you know system so it it it. It's guys it can. They can come in and sort of plug and play Even though there's a you know an you never know I'm talking about personnel. You GotTa think about injury history obviously with every player not just the ones we sign our guys. There's injury history. There's you know who's WHO's available. WHO's working out for which teams You know things like that so you know we're always looking we're we're always You know there's an injury you know. Who's WHO's the next best available out there that can come in and help us Hey there podcast pals. I'm John Stolnis. The host of the PHILLIES pod hidden season.
