Preparing For Flashy Eagles Offense

Six days—that’s all that’s left until the Redskins square off against an Eagles team that’s best known for what’s unknown at the moment. For 14 years, Andy Reid led Philly out of the tunnel and while the first part of his tenure brought some of the greatest moments in the franchise’s history, his teams greatly underwhelmed in recent seasons, all while having Super Bowl expectations floating around. As a result, he was fired after the season and replaced by NCAA darling Chip Kelly.

Not only did Kelly win nearly 87 percent of his games at Oregon, he did it with a flair that forced every eyeball in restaurants and living rooms to redirect to the television set. Week after week, whether it was a I-AA cupcake or a geographical rival like Oregon State, Kelly’s offense would leave opponents gassed and confused. But if recent track records have any indication of how Kelly’s transition to the NFL will fare, he’s got a lot of impressing to do and a lot of fragile glass to reconstruct for others who want to make similar steps up to the professional rank. Of course when it comes to Kelly, no one is really sure what he’ll have up his sleeve.

Monday night on a national stage will be a matchup for the ages between the traditional versus extravagant. Over on NFL.com Brian Baldinger and Terrell Davis where asked to dissect the matchup, but the conversation turned to bizarre Eagles formations Baldinger saw during preseason. So what is the most interesting thing he’s seen out of Chip Kelly’s NFL offense so far?

“In preseason they had a formation [where] all four tight ends were on the field. Four tight ends—three on one side one on the other. We don’t see four tight ends in this league very often, but I’ve seen in Chip Kelly’s offense where the tackles line up outside the numbers. So you have the center and two guards in the middle of the field, the tackles go outside the numbers and the receivers go outside the tackles to the sidelines and then you get this little ball in the middle of the field with your quarterback. Little diamond formation.”

In case you want to do some abbreviated scouting instead of catching up from a long holiday weekend, here’s video of the Eagles very first drive during preseason:

CHIME IN: How do you think the defense will perform against the Eagles offense on Monday night, especially rookies David Amerson and Bacarri Rambo

    The defense will do just fine. every starter has had multiple years with our defense other than and Rambo… and the eagles have only had this off season to learn their offense. Rambo has to keep working on his tackling… Amerson will probably get beat a few times… but he may also get his first pick… but there are growing pains with all rookies. With Orakpo back he will draw the double making it way easier for Kerrigan… which we saw a bit of in preseason. With an increased pass rush and the addition of some DB ballhawks (not to mention vick’s history of turning the ball over) I think that it is almost a guaranteed + 2 turnover advantage for the skins. I would be surprised if they scored more than 20 points on us… and considering the eagles are also having to learn a new D… I could easily see us scoring in the high thirties.

    I would go as far as to say our D will be ranked somewhere between 5 and 15… remember our D was middle of the pack 2011-2012… we jus lost some key pieces in our pass rush… while losing both starting safeties when we were already thin at DB. Now our team is older with added players and added confidence!

    I BELIEVE THE SKINS WILL DEFEAT THE EAGES FAIRLY EASY. THE DEFENSE WILL DOMINATE FOR WASHINGTON GIVING THE SKINS OFFENSE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PUT UP BIG NUMBERS.THE FINAL SCORE,REDSKINS 45,EAGLES 7. RAMBO AND AMERSON WILL GET INTERCEPTIONS! THE DEFENSIVE LINE WILL HAVE 5 SACKS! HTTR!
