EAGLES Defensive Coordinator Bill Davis told the world that Vinny Curry doesn’t have what it takes to start in his 3-4 system. Or put better, that Davis doesn’t think that Curry at only 278 pounds, can be very good there.
Citing Curry as being under-sized, Davis said that Curry wouldn’t be able to handle the job of playing the run, and essentially said that he is strictly a pass rusher.
WELL WHERE THE FUCK DID THAT GO? Because I sure as hell haven’t been seeing it!
Now we’re being told that career underachiever Bill Davis can’t find a way to get what could be our best lineman, out on the field.
This despite Curry’s dedication to get better. This despite the fact that any time Curry is out there, he makes his presence felt. Meanwhile there’s a role enough for drafting 281 pound Taylor Hart? With his 16 sacks in 4 years of COLLEGE? What the fuck is that all about? If 278 is too small to be a regular contributor, why draft that small at all, let alone reach to do it? Every player is an injury away from starting, right? Why stick yourself with a little guy, if you don’t believe in them on principle? Something doesn’t add up here.
So on top of being lied to about what we’re running (run whatever system you like, but don’t LIE to fans about it), we’re now being told that putting out tour best guys isn’t how this system works. Seeing as how it only yielded 39 sacks and finished dead last against the pass last year, I’m thinking that maybe it wouldn’t hurt to re-evaluate that aspect of our system.
