DIDN’T I predict a week ago that our running game would be better than most think it will be? While many still think we’ll be relying heavily on that zone crap, I said “The team added beef so that we can mash down and beat up on the man lined up across from us. The VIOLENCE IS COMING BACK, Eagles brothers and sisters!”
So far it seems that the guy that you look to for telling you these things (me), as usual has an early line on what’s going down. Not only did we add a big (335 pound) RG in Brandon Brooks, but LT Jason Peters is up from 330 to 345 and he’s excited to get back to “ground-and-pound, the old Andy Reid offense”. That doesn’t sound at all like zone blocking to me. Which I’m glad for.
Just wanted to keep you updated on the state of my Training Camp predictions.
