DeMeco Ryans Is Confident And Familiar With Eagles PlaybookBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, Linebackers, News Wednesday, May 9th, 2012
Eagles middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans spoke to a group of Philadelphia High School football players yesterday and afterward, he spoke to a number of local media members concerning what he had learned about the Eagles defensive playbook.
“When I started out with Houston we ran the 4-3 then”, Ryans said concerning Eagles defensive playbook. “Only so many things you can do…. So I’ve seen most of it and done most of it. So it’s kind of easy being familiar with the different coverages and different techniques”.
He obviously feels very comfortable playing in the 4-3 defense again.
Ryans had talked about getting the chance to return to playing in the 4-3 defense after a couple of years in the 3-4.
“It’s back to what I do naturally,” Ryans said. “I’m a natural middle linebacker, and this is what suits my ability.”
He’ll be calling the defenses in the huddle and getting everybody lined when the opposing offense comes to the line of scrimmage. Ryans’ understanding of the defenses and his command in the huddle will be a major improvement on last year when rookie Casey Matthews was running things.
