  • Bennet underutilized

    I'm not sure why but it seemed like the game play didn't include Bennet. I only remember him being thrown to about 1-2 times. He's played great the last couple of games. It's like they just locked in the receivers and were looking for the big plays all night rather tan trying to take advantage on Bennet mismatch.

    Its not that our gameplan didn't include benett is that the eagles gameplan included shutting him down. Wasn't open at all.

      from what i saw i think the o-line needed help and he was primarily blocking but i could be wrong i didnt focus on him that much.

        Eli hit Bennett as much as he could in the last 2 games. Don't you think he was trying to be utilized, passing-wise, as much as he could against the Eagles.

        1) Wasn't open
        2) Utilized as a blocker.

          Eagles bracketed Bennet over/under all game long and doubled Cruz most of the game. They're gameplan was to force Eli to throw at Hixon and Barden who were matched up against DRC and NA respectively. It worked as Eli was uncomfortable most of the game and they limited the offense to 17 points.

            I noticed he was being utilzed as a blocker in some situations but not the whole game. It just seems like they might have put to much faith in the wideouts getting open.

              Bennett was in to block most of the game, at least what I saw...

                Agreed.
                Bennett was brought here primarily for his skills as a blocker. Our Oline is frankly severly outmatched by Eagles Dline. Bennett had to be used more as a blocker against them. Also Eagles LB's are much faster then the LBs of the Panthers and Bucs.
                I dont know what your FF tells you but Eagles are #2 against TEs and held Pitta to almost nothing.

                Who we really missed was Nicks ... not Bennett

                  Two Wide outs had over 100 yards each

                      In this organization, a tight end is a lineman first and foremost. That's why he was signed and he was a good acquisition for us. His skill sets in the passing game are a huge plus for us.

                          I understand that I just don't understand why they didn't have him chipping and then running out like the Eagles were. They kepy him in so much that it too away an extra weapon for Eli.

                            I'd rather have what we saw from Bennett last night than Eli being carted off because of our crap o-line... a chip block can be overcome by second effort.

                              Even though Hixon and Cruz had great games a numer 3 didn't really emerge for us.
