What would be your game plan for Sunday vs. the Eagles?
Arm chair OC/DC time
Gilbride: I would spread that defense out. The wide 9 against this Line can prove to be a problem, yes we had a goodshowing last week but really how much pressure was Carolina appliyng vs. pressure we were stopping? I not interested in running a base Shotgun trips formation, more like a single back triple receiver option; occasionally motioning bennett to exploit match-ups. This type of offense will not limit us in running the ball, Brown has good patience at the line of scrimmage. With the defense spread out like this he should be able to create creases for 4-5 yard gains, Eli is smart enough to check out of something and have multiple other plays to check into from this set. Pass to open up the run, get points on the board early and let them play from behind. Forcing them to go to the air against our defense should prove favorable for our DE's.
Fewell: While I would of loved to get physical at the line with our corners; with the Injury to C-web, he is not going to be able to get hands on these receivers, to Jam them as good as we would like for our DE's to get to the QB fast enough. Not sure the extent of Hosley's hamstring injury, to be able to use that fast twitch muscle getting off the jam and trailing the WR. Haven't seen much of prince in man press outside of college to be comfortable yet. I would like to run a majority man cover 2, to keep everything infront of us all while keeping a rotating spy on Vick. Some MLB blitzes to force Vick into the hands of our DE's, on zone reads some CB blitzes. Object of sunday's game is to hit vick as much as possible, within the parameters of the rules or as much as we can get away with ( love those replacement refs...Sigh*)
