Eagles’ red zone passing concepts remain superb

The Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles have continued their success in the most important area of the field Youth Chris Long Jersey , the red zone. Last year they ranked tops in the league in converting trips to the red area into touchdowns (64%). This year they’re punching it in at an uber-efficient 70%.You can point to a positive regression to red zone running, which would be true. Wendell Smallwood’s 4-yard touchdown makes the Eagles 3 for 5 when turning runs from within 5 yards of the end zone into scores. You could also point to Carson Wentz’s return, who connected with Dallas Goedert for a 13-yard touchdown on the opening drive using a design that looked very familiar.Last year in Week 12, the Eagles beat the Chicago Bears with a variation on the “spot” concept. First, what is a spot?Bleacher Report NFL 101From the Inside the Pylon glossary:Reading the initial action of the play, Bears’ safety Adrian Amos banked on the corner route, which tight end Zach Ertz sells by stemming outside. But instead of running the corner, Ertz ran what the Eagles call a “copper route”. This is a corner-post or as it’s known in the “Air Coryell” system design by former Chargers’ head coach Don Coryell, a “bang-8”.Combined with a familiar route combination that every defensive back has seen hundreds of times http://www.eaglescheapauthenticstore.com/lane-johnson-jersey-cheap , the bang-8/copper route can be deadly.Your browser does not support HTML5 video.If it worked once, why not dial it up again? In Week 3 in their 20-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts, that’s exactly what the Eagles did. Exclusively utilizing 13 personnel (1 running back, 3 tight ends) paired with a busy tempo, they marched down to the Colts’ 13-yard line. On 2nd and 9, Wentz found Goedert on the same spot copper he found Ertz with months ago.Your browser does not support HTML5 video.The Eagles have a full bag of tricks with a bevy of new takes on old designs and dialing them up at the right time and in the red zone remains Doug Pederson’s specialty. With Wentz back and one game in the books during his return tour, expect more new and old wrinkles with the Eagles’ passing attack when they get within striking distance. The Philadelphia Eagles made their assistant coaches available to media on Monday and one takeaway from that session is that offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland doesn’t expect starting left tackle Jason Peters to miss any time (per Jimmy Kempski).Peters, as we know, suffered a biceps injury during the Eagles’ win over the New York Giants on Thursday night. The 36-year-old blocker had already been playing through a quadriceps injury that would “flare up” on him http://www.eaglescheapauthenticstore.com/jason-peters-jersey-cheap , as Doug Pederson described it.Yesterday morning, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported Peters is “expected to return and play this season” but cautioned he “could miss a week or two.” If Stoutland’s sense is any indication, Peters could be on the field for when the Eagles take on the Carolina Panthers this Sunday.Eagles sideline reporter Howard Eskin also believes Peters is going to suit up for this week’s game. Injuries have clearly prevented Peters from playing like his vintage self. Through six games, he ranks 36th out of 77 tackles in PFF’s pass blocking metric. That’s still much better than Peters’ backup, Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who ranks tied for 69th. We should get a better sense of Peters’ status once the Eagles release their official injury reports this week. The first one is scheduled to come out on Wednesday.
