Tomorrow's (Thursday) defensive scout team reps at Eagles voluntary OTA finale will feature the Cleveland Browns look. Today's (Wednesday) scout team was the Giants. Yesterday's (Tuesday) simulated opponent was Dallas. Monday's scout team look was the Redskins.
What all this means is the Eagles coaching staff is throwing different defensive looks and variations of pressure and blitzes against QB Mike Vick this week--- the kind he's bound to see in the opener against Cleveland in September and later from division opponents.
It's an ABC approach called learning to read. We give you different letters and combinations of letters this week. We expect you to learn how to read the letters and form the words from them. It would also be very nice if you could learn to read fast enough to recognize the letters and words at the line of scrimmage---and maybe even write a new word before the ball is snapped.
I kid a little, because Vick is getting better at reading defenses. He's just a little slow sometimes in pulling the trigger on writing a new word.
The ABC method works the other way, too. Eagles offensive scout team formations tried to mimic the Giants offense on Wednesday. "Imaginary Eli" (Nick Foles) torched the Eagles' defense for a TD in one series based upon a mis-read by a linebacker (whose name shall not be spoken).
But as GK Brizer says: If you're not occasionally fooled or confused in practice, then your coaches aren't doing their job...
Some other final-week OTA observations:
--DRC has quietly had a great couple of weeks (when present)...he's in great shape and reportedly has been just terrific in outside corner coverage in the passing drills.
--Vinny Curry hurt his ankle in Tuesday's practice but it is "just" a sprain...he turned his ankle working on a move against tackle D.T. Jones...
--Brent Celek and Clay Harbor have been working together on a 2 Tight-End set...That's a strong run formation...but Celek has been lining up in straight pass formations too and has been running all kinds of different routes--and reportedly catching everything they throw near him...
--The rap on Riley Cooper is he's been dropping a lot of passes in the drills, as has been Harbor...
DRC looking stronger and more motivated than ever according to inside observers...a good feeling about outside cornerback is starting to take over the prospectus for Eagles Defense 2012...
@HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I hate youse!! Let's start over, fresh and new. Let's show Nathalie what we can do when we put our mind to it!
Welp... I was trying to make individual HAHA posts, but there was SO much to HAHA on that I would have been HAHA'ing all night, and I don't have that kind of time... so a BIG HAHA to bored... and a specific HAHA for Nat (who went so far as to remove her AVI in her removal)... TBT she wasn't going to win the AVI contest anyway, but removing it completely seems uncalled for... so another HAHA for that.
Speaking of the AVI contest, my new entry is clearly superior to Jerk's last and current AVI... my acceptance speech for winning the contest shall be short... HAHA.
As for my identity, I shall only just say... you will hardly know who I am, or what I mean... HAHA!!!!!!
Nat should do what I do,..focus on the football related materials,..visiting the fine/culinary arts,...when it suits my purpose. She gets upset,.because she cares too much. The BORED is the BORED,..and we do our best. I kick arses,..when I have to,..to educate and entertain,..expecting the same in return. The integrity of the posts being foremost in my nomenclature. I'll do my best to retrieve the forlorn lass,..as she's leaps and bounds superior to the one who is still here,.albeit TBT,..her displeasure with him is self evident.
She can hate my guts and still post here. sunbutts does it everyday. Just skip over my comments, it isn't brain surgery. I really didn't think I had attacked/provoked her before today, I was wrong I guess.
@Jerky Jerky: Quick update....we all hate yer guts, and you usually are wrong....but that's OK, I rarely read posts anyways....
@Jerky yur wrong,.about thinking you were wrong,..about what you thought . Said differently,..she does not hate you. You were not the person of disinterest. Yura fine American fella,..a great eagles fan.
Bri....thanks for the clarification...sort of assumed that was the deal, but was unsure....
What did youse dikheads do to Frenchie? Sheesh, she's gone again? Oh well, she'll be back....
....Just when I thought I was out...THEY PULL ME BACK IN....
ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......Frenchie says "None of you know why I'm upset"
Broz just figured it out.
Me tinks dis has been about a week or so in the brewing....Iffens I think back correctly.
@Brozer8 Perk up,..genius,..she retreated B4 the hypothetical questions. Yur kinda stupid,.besides being the master MDMCB.
Redskins holding training camp in Richmond VA this year.
That's Broz's hood.
They didn't OK this wiff me.
Welp... what a day we lose Nickels and Nat... oh well, no big whoop. I'm gonna call it quits from work early today... catch youse guys and not so much gals (do geldings count? if so, to sunny too then)... night

Ok so we hired this kid to work in the warehouse and he's telling this story of how his GF is afraid of #3. And i'm like -what the hell is number 3?? He says-ya know it's the other things guys have. I'm like what? What the hell? He says-you know, pee is #1, poop is #2 and jizz is #3!!!!! I'm gonna be laughing for days!
