Enemy Intelligence In PlayOctober 9th, 2013
Ronde Barber did a radio interview this summer and talked about how teams really go crazy for insider intelligence on opponents. Clubs will sign a released player and grill anyone on their roster or anywhere else to pick up knowledge.
Barber talked about how it can backfire, but he didn’t dismiss the value of the knowledge.
That kind of enemy intelligence will be in play against the Bucs on Sunday. The Eagles have former Bucs linebacker Najee Goode on the roster, but they’ve also got safety Earl Wolff out of North Carolina State, a 2013 fifth-round pick. He spent years lining up across from Mike Glennon in practice.
Yesterday, Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis talked about how Wolff, who is getting extensive playing time, is being tapped for Glennon’s tendencies that might not show up clearly on film.
As for additional Bucs knowledge, Davis worked with Mike Sullivan on the New York Giants’ staff.
