Eagles Are Sure To Face Plenty Of “No Huddle” OffensesBREAKING NEWS, Defensive Line, Eagles, News Monday, August 27th, 2012
I was in the Eagles’ locker room today and we were interviewing defensive end Phillip Hunt. He was talking about looking forward to wearing down offensive lines by rotating their defensive linemen every few plays. The defensive line has been by far the strongest part of the Eagles defense. They make life very difficult for offensive lines and quarterbacks.
It’s very impressive to watch the Birds defensive line get after the opposing offensive lines with fresh bodies coming in after three or four plays and tremendous effort on each play. They can wear an offensive line down with their intensity and never ending substitutions.
That’s one of the reasons, I can guarantee you, right now that the Eagles are going to see a lot of “no-huddle offenses”. Every offense has a version of a “no-huddle” attack and you can be sure that they’re going to pull it out for the Eagles.
A no huddle attack would put more pressure on defensive coordinator, Juan Castillo to get the defense called and into DeMeco Ryans. It would eliminate the defensive line substitutions and the Eagles defensive linemen would soon be out of gas.
The Birds had better be ready to adjust to this type of strategy because they’re sure to see it.
