already was a tough task before the Philadelphia Eagles had a mediocre first half.The offense was inconsistent Womens Corey Clement Jersey , the defense couldn't protect leads in the fourth quarter and injuries were a factor. So the Eagles entered their bye at 4-4 and were second behind Washington (5-2) in the NFC East.They have a challenging schedule coming up and it's unlikely they'll win enough games to get a first-round bye if they can even catch the Redskins.But help is on the way from the outside and from within.Wide receiver Golden Tate was acquired from Detroit shortly before the NFL's trade deadline, giving Carson Wentz a needed option. The Eagles are averaging only 22.2 points per game, down from 28.6 last year.Running back Darren Sproles could be returning for Philadelphia's next game against Dallas after being sidelined since injuring his hamstring in Week 1. Two more players from the group on injured reserve 鈥?receivers Mack Hollins and Mike Wallace and tight end Richard Rodgers 鈥?also will be eligible to come back."We definitely have the pieces and now is the time to get hot going into November with five more division games," Tate said. "We just need to stay on track. I plan on going to the playoffs and playing a few more."Giving up a third-round pick for Tate, who is in the final season of his contract, was a risky move. It shows the organization believes the team is still a Super Bowl contender despite the so-so record."We have a lot of confidence in our players and in our coaching staff," personnel boss Howie Roseman said. "Has everything gone exactly the way we thought this year? No. I don't think any season does."But we think we have a really good football team and we are adding a really good player. We are going to keep our foot on the gas. We are not going to sit on our hands."Wentz was one of the positives in the first two months. He has been mostly excellent since missing the first two games while recovering from knee surgery that forced him to miss the playoffs. However, the offense had other issues.Running back Jay Ajayi tore his ACL, wideout Alshon Jeffery missed the first three games and bookend tackles Jason Peters and Lane Johnson are banged-up and didn't play up to their high standards."That week off is huge both for people's minds and their bodies to just really heal up, get away from the game for a couple days and everything, get your mind right so we can come back and make this run," Wentz said.Tate could help the offense get in sync. He has more time to learn the playbook because the team is on a break."I want to do whatever's going to help this team win," Tate said. "When the ball is in my hand, I want to be able to make a play."Tate has made plenty of plays throughout his 8陆 seasons in the league. He has more yards after catch (3,910) than anyone else since 2010. He gives coach Doug Pederson flexibility to move guys around and perhaps put Nelson Agholor back in the slot where he thrived in 2017."He's a tremendously productive player," Roseman said. "His run-after-the-catch numbers are phenomenal. We're really excited to get him."The Eagles are now better equipped to win shootouts if their defense doesn't perform up to expectations. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's unit struggled against the pass and allowed several fourth-down conversions in important situations in a couple of losses when a stop would've given the team a win."We have to score more points Womens Corey Graham Jersey ," Pederson said. "We have to get better. Hopefully we get some guys back healthy. We know our division. We have five division (games) in the next eight weeks, so that's a challenge, but everything is right in front of us."Some of the issues on defense have been surprising. The line was supposed to be a major strength, but the front four isn't getting enough pressure. Brandon Graham only has 1陆 sacks and Derek Barnett had season-ending shoulder surgery.The secondary has been a problem, too. Safety Rodney McLeod went down with a knee injury and starting cornerbacks Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby have given up too many big plays.Eagles’ red zone defense key to early success Fifteen. That’s the number of offensive plays the Atlanta Falcons ran inside the red zone against the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles. Fifteen plays from inside the 20-yard line.The worst red zone team in the NFL last year, the Denver Broncos, converted 40% of their trips inside the 20 into touchdowns. Last Thursday, the Falcons had one success in five visits. The math is simple; it was a catastrophic display of poor play-calling and execution.The worst part for the Falcons and offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian is nobody that was paying attention was shocked by this result. On The Kist & Solak Show previewing the game, my message was clear: if the Falcons march down the field, remain calm.FIRST QUARTER VARIATION...As expected, the Falcons came out with a multiplicitous attack. It worked. In the first quarter they showcased six different personnel groupings, the Eagles responded with five variations of their own. This feeling out process allowed the Falcons to determine how the Eagles would respond and react to Jones in different alignments.The first three plays showcased Sarkisian’s desire to his star around and force the Eagles to react. Jones lined up outside for a 10-yard gain, picked up 11 yards on a reverse from a nasty split, and flew behind the formation with orbit motion to suck the defense into his gravitational pull on a 20-yard scamper by Devonta Freeman. Three plays, three plays positively impacted by Jones.Later in the drive Jones would line up in the slot from a trips formation, draw zone coverage Youth Nelson Agholor Jersey , and bust lose on a corner route for 33 yards. Sarkisian was dialing it up, but then he hung the phone on Jones. The next four “and goal” plays featured zero snaps for the Falcons best offensive weapon.To their credit, and poor coverage by Nate Gerry aside, the Eagles defense answered the call. On 4th & Goal from the 1-yard line, the defense strung out Freeman’s toss and linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill shed not one, but two blockers while setting his edge to come up with a huge stop.It was a superb display of team defense; one that would repeat itself in clutch moments throughout the night.BIG PACKAGES, BIG RESULTS...The biggest success in the red zone for the Falcons came from 22 personnel (two tight ends, two running backs), which forced the Eagles into base. With Nigel Bradham out, the Eagles only played with three linebackers 10 times (15%), allowing 5.4 yards per play and a 40% success rate. The Falcons took advantage on a 9-yard touchdown run from Telvin Coleman. On that play, Gerry was washed out of his gap by climbing guard Andy Levitre and Rodney McLeod whiffed on a two-way go in space.More effective inside the 20 for the Eagles was their three safety sets: big nickel and big dime, which they utilized 55% of the time. While those sets were responsible for giving up gains of 36, 33, and 26 yards from outside the danger zone, their effectiveness with a compressed field paid huge dividends.*”No play” penalties not includedRasul Douglas’ interception highlights this group http://www.philadelphiaeaglesteamonlines.com/rodney-mcleod-jersey , as defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz showed a massive amount of faith in him and Sidney Jones to cover Julio Jones. The two young cornerbacks worked in conjunction to play a “banjo switch”, with Jones releasing outside into Douglas’ responsibility.Schwartz brought the house with his trademark cover 0, sending Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod and Jordan Hicks as blitzers. This led to a rushed throw from quarterback Matt Ryan that landed in Douglas’ lap.THE FINAL STAND...On the final drive, the Falcons would deploy their 11 personnel (one tight end, one running back) exclusively. The Eagles would answer with their big dime package for all twelve plays.After allowing the Falcons to once again move fluidly through the middle of the field, Schwartz had seen enough. Madden strategies don’t always work in real life, but any time you can bracket a player like Jones in a key situation, you do it, over and over again.The Falcons were bailed out on fourth down by an illegal contact penalty that could be described as “soft”. It made no difference, and in a repeat of the 2017 Divisional Round match-up, Jones once again failed to come down with a game winning catch. The coverage by Ronald Darby was superb.Fifteen plays. You could even say sixteen depending on how you view illegal contact. While Sarkisian will take a lot of the blame for unimaginative red zone play-calling, not enough is being said about the execution by the Eagles defense. Stands like these may be what the team needs to survive this early stretch without Carson Wentz. Jim Schwartz seems up to the task.
