Desperate for offensive production http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authentic-jason-kelce-jersey , the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles need to find answers fast. top scoring offense and keeping their playoff hopes alive, chances are they’ll have to put up their best offensive performance this season.We all know the numbers; the Eagles have only scored over 30 points once this season and rank dead last in first quarter points. The sole 30+ point game was against a New York Giants’ defense that currently ranks 20th in points allowed.The Saints defense hasn’t been particularly stellar this year, but it hasn’t mattered.Offensive coordinator Mike Groh is under fire with many fans clamoring for the days of Frank Reich. Is it justified? Perhaps. It’s a nuanced conversation with several moving parts. All things considered, I thought the execution was more to blame in the 27-20 loss against the Dallas Cowboys. That’s not to say Groh is absolved.Make no mistake, this is not a Groh apology piece. He needs to be an integral part in righting the ship. One challenge he faces is the absence of stud right tackle Lane Johnson. Replacing him is Halapoulivaati Vaitai.My thoughts on Vaitai are well documented. I don’t believe him to be a starting caliber player nor close to it. The Eagles certainly recognize his faults; you can tell this by the way they game-planned around him against the Cowboys.Removing the six screen passes from the equation, Carson Wentz dropped back 41 times last Sunday night. Vaitai was given aid in the way of tight end/running back blocks or chips on 13 of those snaps. Essentially one-third of non-screen drop-backs have some sort of built-in component to help Vaitai. That’s not counting the bevy of RPO calls that facilitate a fast release.On one hand, Groh would be a fool not to provide Vaitai with some assistance against a tough draw like Demarcus Lawrence. In a way it was effective. Wentz was only pressured on 25% of his dropbacks and sacked twice.On the other hand, taking away options in the progression for Wentz also hurts him. This was especially evident on key downs where Zach Ertz was forced to stay in and get a healthy chunk of Lawrence before releasing late.Paired with this is the mysterious drop in 12 personnel (28%) despite it not being about Golden Tate seeing a large number of snaps (29%). If you’re going to keep a tight end in, why not free up Ertz and use the better blocker, Dallas Goedert Womens Chance Warmack Jersey , for that role? Furthermore, wouldn’t he be more effective doing that job than a smaller player like Jordan Matthews?When left on an island, Vaitai was up-and-down. Lawrence got the best of him a few times, as expected, but he also gave up pressures to guys like linebacker Damien Wilson. Here’s Wilson on a blitz helping to collapse the pocket around Wentz.Taking away resources from the passing game and dumping them into protection on one-third of your plays seems less than ideal. It’s something that Groh and Doug Pederson will have to work around without sacrificing the potential of the offense.Lane Johnson was limited in today’s practice and his status for Sunday is in jeopardy. Either Vaitai will have to step up his game and show he can be trusted on an island, or Wentz and his weapons will have to step up their game that much more as the game-plan shrinks around them.

Pavely-USA TODAY SportsThe Philadelphia Eagles addressed a need on Thursday morning by reportedly signing free agent linebacker L.J. Fort.But who the heck is L.J. Fort, exactly? In order to answer that question, I thought it’d benefit BGN readers to get a Pittsburgh Steelers perspective on him. In order to do that, I reached out to good friend Jeff Hartman (@BnGBlitz) of Behind The Steel Curtain. Here’s what he had to say.1) Can you summarize L.J. Fort’s stint in Pittsburgh? Fort was a tremendous special teams player Nick Foles Jersey , but really came into his own as a sub package linebacker for the Steelers last year. He was the closest thing to bridging the gap between Ryan Shazier and whoever steps into that role next. He is a solid player, very athletic and covers extremely well.2) What’s the reaction to him leaving? Should the Steelers have kept him?A large majority of the fan base wanted Fort retained. He is a good insurance policy at ILB, and reports are stating the Steelers did try to retain him, but failed due to the Eagles giving him a better offer. He is a very hard worker, a journeyman, and played well when the team finally gave him a chance.3) What are Fort’s strengths? As I said before, his strengths are as a sub package player. He is not an every down linebacker. He is fast and athletic, which helps in coverage schemes. Since the Steelers play a lot of sub package defense, he saw the field a lot in 2018 and was able to do more than enough to solidify the position for the remainder of the season. Fort is also a very solid blitzer, when the Steelers gave him a chance to do so. Even though he only registered 1 sack last season http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authentic-deandre-carter-jersey , good blitzing isn’t always told by the overall number of sacks a player racks up.4) What are Fort’s weaknesses?For all the positives he brings in athleticism and coverage, he is a bit on the light side and isn’t as strong in the run game. If an offensive lineman gets to the second level he struggles shedding the blocker and making plays. He is best suited to play in space, and would be subbed out during goal line, short yardage and obvious running situations.5) Do you believe he can be a starter?He could be in the right scheme, but as I said earlier he is a good insurance policy. I would tell fans to expect a solid special teams player, and a part-time player who does well in sub packages. If he is starting it usually signifies a void on the defense he is attempting to fill.6) Anything else to know about Fort off the field?Not really. Fort was a good player on the field, and never an issue off it. A team oriented individual who has spent a lot of time in other NFL locker rooms. His experience is very valuable to any franchise.For more Steelers perspective, check out this BSTC article on Fort. And the reaction from Steelers fans:
