Eagles Offensive And Defensive Lines Will Need To Be Totally RebuiltBREAKING NEWS, Defensive Line, Eagles, News, Offensive Line Tuesday, November 20th, 2012
The Eagles offensive and defensive lines have had a lot to do with the demise of this football team this year, but the fact that they are using gimmicky systems will mean the team’s offensive and defensive lines will need to be totally rebuilt.
Both Washburn and Mudd employ unique systems, which utilize undersized linemen. Washburn’s “Wide Nine” believes in allowing smaller and quicker defensive linemen to get upfield on the snap of the football. They ignore the blocking of the offensive line and get upfield regardless of the play.
The defensive line is going to need to be totally rebuilt for next season. Chances are that whomever the new coaching staff that takes this job, they’re going to want their defensive line to get bigger and more disciplined. It will mean drafting and acquiring a new defensive line.
The same is true on the offensive side of the ball. Mudd’s system will be out the door. The veteran offensive line coach likes undersized offensive linemen who can move quickly on his stretch run plays. The Eagles will need to totally revamp this unit when the season is over.
The Birds will be relying on Eagles GM Howie Roseman to draft offensive and defensive linemen to replace the group they have now.
How does that make you feel about the future of this football team?
