Tandy Missed His Big ChanceOctober 14th, 2013
One of the most disappointing plays against the Eagles yesterday was when safety Keith Tandy blitzed off Nick Foles’ blind side and came in on the Eagles’ QB untouched.
Tandy appeared to let up on hitting Foles and didn’t go to strip the football. Tandy sort of three-quarter-speed hit Foles and barely phased the QB. Tandy hung on to his waist like a toddler clutching mommy’s thigh and Foles got a pass away.
The New Schiano Order coaches its players on recording sack/fumbles, not just sacks. Defensive players are coached to go for the big play. They’re also coached how to wrap up and tackle. Tandy didn’t do either.
This was just mind-boggling to Joe. A guy like Tandy essentially waits his entire football life to make a play like this — and he wasn’t ready for it.
