“It’s About Reading The Body Language”

The Eagles are living in the film room

The Eagles are living in the film room

Joe often cautions fans to realize that defensive coordinators also get paid big bucks to stop the Bucs. And they, too, break their asses to be successful.

A fantastic 1-on-1 chat with Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis illustrates this beautifully.

The video is right here on PhiladelphiaEagles.com. Davis explained that he never laid eyes on America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, before this week, and he shares how impressed he is by Jameis’ football maturity, audible calling, ability to handle a pass rush, and more.

But Joe mostly was focused on Davis’ look at Mike Evans. Davis talks about how the Bucs throw at least eight long balls a game, and how Evans “runs every route in the book and does it well.”

Nice compliment there, and the proof is how Evans gets open over and over and over. He just doesn’t always catch the ball.

Davis referenced how the Eagles and deep in study on what Evans might be tipping off.

“Sometimes they have some tells where let you know the back shoulder fade is more likely here,” So we’re studying that hard [on Evans],” David said. “You just have to play through the man. You have to stay calm at the ball. Play through the man, and then go for the ball at the end.”

Again, football junkies will really enjoy the video linked above.

    They’re looking past Tampa and paying no attention to Dye or Humphries whatsoever. Time for them to step up and shine!! GO BUCS!!

    I really want to see Humphries get at least 6 targets. We have to fight fire with fire and I honestly think Mark Sanchez in his second year in Chips system will be much better than Bradford in his first. Evans needs to break out of his dropsies funk and I think one way to help that is find someone else who can step up and take the pressure off of him. Give the kid a chance and they can win this game. It would also help get our run game going again. Fingers crossed for tomorrow!!!

    Go Bucs!!!

    Winston had a few bad throws last week as well…but I think he lives to play in hostile environments. A game in Philly should be a good test to see how he handles pressure. This game puts us at .500 and will get them another game closer to my 7-9 prediction.

  4. Couch Fan Says:

    It doesnt matter who the QB is, the defense will let the team drive down the field on them repeatedly. Can they limit those drives to FGs or will they allow them into the endzone? That will determine the game. I expect Jameis to have a bounce back game.

    Elephant in the Room….let’s see JW will hold up with all that’s whiling around in his world. I Hope he plays the BEST game of this amazing (always..compelling) life. Go get em Jameis show tomorrow at 1:00 what you’re really all about!!! Btw..yea sue those bi&ches.

    Wow just watched MSU knock off OSU…

    Joey Bosa will fit in fine next the GMAC…jumped offsides what? At least twice.
    He’s obviously a good player but is he “franchise DE”?

    What say you college experts. I’m wondering if playing on a National Champion hasn’t inflated his rep. Perhaps there is a better player like the guy at Ole Miss or Penn State?

  8. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Ps… I’m hoping philly will show him alittle philly love, after all, he has sent out loads of “philly love heir way”. Hopefully, after the game in over, they’ll be wishing that he was their quarterback, as he always hoped to be.

    Hey…be thankfully he’s a BUC:)!!!

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    St. Pete

    Perhaps we should look for some Spartan players for defense in the draft,,,,,,looked pretty stout today.

    @ Joe

    I see that you have overlooked making a post about CNN showing “The Hunting Ground” in prime time on Sunday night.

    I guess at that time for about an hour Jameis really will be “America’s Quarterback”

  11. tnew Says:

    I hope all Bucs fans do watch the Hunting Grounds, then they go look at the original complaint, along with the next three. Then they look at the police report and the prosecutors report. Then they look at the civil suit. Weigh that in with the countersuit of Jameis. Look at all the facts, then make your honest assessment. My bet is most of the critics are too lazy and will watch the Hunting Grounds in shock and yell about Winston. If that is the case you MUST also react the same way towards Peyton Manning. You then must totally vilify Ben Rothleisberger and Kobe Bryant.

    Don’t be lazy but look at the facts for yourself then draw your own conclusions. Don’t allow agenda driven TV shows dictate the truth to you.
