How much should NYG focus on the Eagles QB sneak?

bluefin : 3/31/2023 6:36 pm
The Philly sneak shortens the chains for them on every possession. Should Schoen acquire some 350 lb+ DTs to specifically try stop it?
Is it critical to scheme for it, or do you accept its success rate and load up to try to beat PHI in other ways, in spite of it?
Siaki Ita of Baylor is a 350lb+ DT, sometimes compared to Vernon Davis; should Schoen target him out of necessity, even if he isn’t BPA?
Not much.

Focus on keeping them out of third/fourth and short.
Stop them on 1st and 2nd down

Don't give them a chance to convert a third and short or fourth and short.

Give Wink the tools to do what he wants to do. Then sit back and watch the bodies fly around the field making plays.
the eagles run this place 2 plays a game on average

Is it effective? sure.... but lets not blow this outta proportion and say its why they are beating us.
Make the NFL change the rules

I suggest if the Eagles are doing this at the Giants goal line, just keep on going offsides and do not let them run the play in that formation. After 50 offsides, someone will get the message.
Giants should run the play too

How did KC and Washington beat them

That’s what everyone should be focused on
Need to...

...bear crawl the A gaps and the push has little effect.
But, not many stud DTs are going to want to do that.
I’d break out some film of Butkus, Huff, Nitschke, Davidson & Alzado

Then let the chips fall where they may.
I would be more worried about Hurts running on 3rd and 8.

He kills teams with that.
So you'd use a draft pick on a NT when we're

four-deep and not get a player who can spell Leonard Williams?

Having Mahomes or being able to create a turnover on 40% of Philly’s drives (including 3 fumble recoveries) doesn’t seem like a useful roadmap.
Doesn't look like a size thing to me

It look more like who can get lower and still produce power. Kelce is so good at defies physics. Watch how low he is to the ground while still pushing the pile.

Seem like they should just jump onto his back, but guess that's easier said then done.

I agree. Other teams will be doing it this season. Teams that don't will be at a disadvantage.
We ran this play in high school

In the 1970's. Now it's revolutionary. We called it the wedge formation.

Defensive linemen have to tackle o line at the knees. Refs won't call holding because it's just a mass of bodies.
