1. DC Jim Schwartz: “There’s two things we can do as a defense: One is hold the score down, and number two is put our offense in position to score or score ourselves, and that was a common theme for us last year.” 2. Schwartz says that #Eagles signed CB Dexter McDougle to make up for Sidney Jones' absence. He said that McDougle did a good job in coverage, but Schwartz would like to see his tackling cleaned up.
3. Schwartz said that the team decided not to play Rasul Douglas on Sunday, citing that it was because Douglas isn't a safety. He saw some time on the field because of the team's emergency situation.
4. OC Mike Groh said that the team is working on spreading the ball beyond main targets WR Alshon Jeffery and TE Zach Ertz. He also said that he would like to begin involving running backs in the passing game, but it's a week-to-week endeavor.
5. Groh emphasized that the #Eagles want to spread the ball around and do so against the excellent Jacksonville defense. He notes that there are good players in the huddle, it's just a matter of finding the best matchups on Sunday. - 9 hours ago
