Default Denver Play Action Mentality (Hurt us in the Past)

Because of our aggressive nature and being the first game - the Texans will be throwing a ton of play action - slow us down type offense. Lundy left/Lundy Right and then Carr will play action boot (Jake Plummer esque) and look for Johson/Moulds/Putzier.

We need to stay in contain on those types of downs and distances when Carr can get us.

Run defense needs to be stout to keep us in third and longs and force their hand.

Third and short / 2nd and short allows for that boot type style of play and can hurt a super fast/aggressive style of defense.

Just something to watch for. JJ in his press conference said they are aware of the Denver style of offense and how it hurt us last year. So we shall see...

BP,

that is correct. I expect a Denver style offense from HOU. they have two good receivers. the key is obviously to stuff the run and make Carr beat you. then beat the shit out of him and cause a couple of turnovers

Yes. Lundy must die.

And when Carr boots he needs to turn right into Kearse or Howard and feel our wrath.

BP, I was listening to Spads on "Eagles Live" this morning, and someone asked him that same question. About how Kubiak game planned us well last year in Denver, and how we'll probably see alot of the same vs Houston.
Spads responded by saying "that's true, but you need playmakers to carry out the gameplan". Inferring that Houston is not Denver.
He seems to think the Eagles will win BIG !!!!

I hate that Denver Offense. It is so predictable to me. Every second play is one of those stupid bootlegs.

If I were JJ, I'd send a safety or linebacker off the edge and absolutely light Plummer/Carr up if they tried that bootleg stuff. You could drop Kearse back into the flats.

If the QB gets lit up good once that should be enough to slow down those bootlegs. Really if we can shut down the run, that bootleg stuff isn't as effective.

I wonder how good Lundy is at picking up the blitz?

That's what worries me a little. How wil our LB's cover on 3rd downs on those Plummer-like roll outs to the TE's and backs? Hopefully, Mcnabb plays a little LB on those downs to take the TE away. We do have to keep them in 3rd and long.

Sorry, but I'm a little confused about the McNabb reference. If you meant McCoy, I would agree wholeheartedly. I hope this is a chance for him to shine in TE coverage or flying up if needed, to stop Carr.
