    Philadelphia Eagles
    2011 Season Preview

    Eagles Pro Bowl QB Kevin Kolb hopes to lead his team back to the playoffs in season 2 of the PMFL.

    The Philadelphia Eagles are fresh off a disappointing 6-10 season in 2010. Missing the playoffs was a shock to the system of the front office, which had enjoyed a run of back-to-back postseason appearances and had been a part of the playoffs in eight of the past 10 seasons. With the NFC champion Giants in the division, pressure was mounting from the impatient Eagle fan base. Owner Jeffrey Lurie felt it was time for a change, and reached out to a sister TF league to find his new leader. Coach Bada Bing was hired in the off-season and immediately went to work.

    Bing's first goal was to improve a defense that ranked 22nd in the PMFL in scoring defense (27.9 points per game) and 27th in total yards (348.9 yards per game). Step 1 was installing a new 3-4 scheme, designed to prevent big plays and force opponents to put together long drives to score. "We have a bend but don't break philosophy," said new defensive coordinator John Offerdahl, who starred for the Miami Dolphins defense in the late 80s and early 90s. "If we are going to give up points, teams are going to have to earn it."

    Next was staying in house to resign three key cogs on the defensive side of the ball in DT Broderick Bunkley, OLB Akeem Jordan and SS Quintin Mikell. All three came with a high price tag, including Bunkley who had a max offer from the Broncos that the Eagles chose to match. "When we evaluated our team on tape this spring, we realized the talent to run our system was there," said Coach Bing. Rather than risk going out on the open market, we chose to retain our own guys and build around what we already had here."

    Step 3 was to make a big splash via trade. Linebackers are key to Offerdahl's scheme and the Eagles needed a second guy in the middle with the number of four linebacker sets they run. Coach Bing and Offerdahl eyed a player they had experience with in a previous coaching gig. Enter D.J. Williams, the star middle linebacker who played the previous season with the Denver Broncos. Williams, along with new starting left guard Brian Waters, were acquired for the Eagles first round pick (#10 overall). Coach Bing explained his decision..."We feel we have the team in place right now to make a run in the NFC. We chose to go out and get two established veterans to plug into our system to make an immediate impact, rather than trying to develop a young guy. For the next 2-3 seasons, this made the best sense for us."

    On the other side of the ball, long time Eagle great Ron Jaworski was retained from the previous regime to coordinate the offense. "Jaws" directed a unit which had a ton of success in 2010, scoring 28 points per game (13th in the PMFL) and ranked 5th in the league in passing at 265 yards per game. "The problem with this team last year was not the offense," said Bing. "Ron is a great offensive mind and we are thrilled that he decided to stay on board."

    The unit is led by Pro Bowl QB Kevin Kolb. The young gunslinger was at or near the top in nearly every passing category, including a league-best 42 touchdown passes. Kolb ranked third in the league in passing yards (4,409) and quarterback rating (113.4) and has a ton of weapons to thank for his success. Wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin were each Pro Bowl candidates and ranked in the top 8 league wide in both receiving yards and touchdowns.

    The coaching staff is putting an emphasis on one aspect of the offense for improvement - the running game. While Philly was a top 5 passing offense, they failed to get things going on the ground, averaging just over 75.0 yards per game. "We realize that we need a more balanced attack to compete in this league, let alone this division," remarked Jaworski. "LeSean (McCoy) is a tremendous talent who can give us that. He had a great year in 2010 (1500+ yards from scrimmage, 12 TDs), but we are asking him to take that next step to becoming an elite back in the PMFL."

    Special Teams
    On special teams, the Eagles have the potential to be dynamic. Return men DeSean Jackson and Ellis Hobbs are both explosive players who can take the ball to the house every time they touch the ball. New special teams coach and Eagles return legend Via Sikahema could barely contain his excitement when talking about his group. "We have two difference makers who are going to dramatically impact field position for us. The coaches from Bing on down have made it clear how important they feel special teams is, and we are prepared to give the team those 'hidden' yards that help us get in the win column."

    The new regime will be tested right out of the gate. In the season opener, the Eagles play host to the NFC champion Giants in a key divisional week 1 matchup. They stay at home in week 2 to take on the Patriots, who were 12-4 a season ago. Week 3, Philly travels cross country to take on the Seahawks with new coach (and TF legend) Vishal. No doubt, we will know a lot more about the Eagles at that point. However, optimism is abound in Philly as the new regime looks to bring the team back to the playoffs.

    Week 1
    Opening Statement
    New Faces on Defense Key Eagles 27-21 Win over Giants
    | Box Score |

    Newly acquired D.J. Williams made his presence felt in his first game in Eagles' green.

    Philadelphia, PA - All eyes were on Philadelphia on Monday Night Football. Spotlight game. Defending NFC Champs in the house. New coaching staff. An off-season full of anticipation from the fan base. The Eagles made sure the hometown 12th man got their money's worth.

    D.J. Williams led the way with 7 tackles, an interception and a key pass breakup as the Eagles' defense stood firm against a late Giants charge to open the season with a 27-21 upset win. Philly forced Eli Manning into four interceptions (including two in the red zone), with rookie dime back Tyrell Hilliard collecting two of those picks. The Eagles new "bend-but-don't-break" philosophy frustrated the G'men, as they outgained the Eagles 342-215, but could only muster two offensive touchdowns to show for it.

    Things didn't start the way new Eagles coach Bada Bing drew things up. With the team and crowd in a frenzy, Giants rookie Sean Hopkins took Justin Coker's opening kickoff 100 yards to the house, silencing the masses and giving New York an early 7-0 lead. The defending champs looked to be on their way, but a newly found mental toughness allowed Philly to respond. Kevin Kolb engineered a 7-play drive which stalled at the Giants' 34, leading to a David Akers 51-yard field goal. Williams made an immediate impact on the very next play from scrimmage, intercepting an Eli Manning pass. That led to a Leonard Weaver 1-yard touchdown run on 3rd and 1 to give the home team a lead they would never relinquish.

    The next drive ended in another turnover, as OLB Akeem Jordan forced an Ahmad Bradshaw fumble into Asante Samuel's hands around midfield. The Eagles struck again, this time with LeSean McCoy taking a screen pass 44 yards into the end zone to extend the lead to ten points. The Giants took the ball out of Manning's hands on the next drive, pounding the rock with "thunder-and-lightning" - Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw. Jacobs finished the 8-play drive with a 2-yard touchdown, closing the gap to 3 at 17-14. David Akers kicked his second 50+ yard field goal on the ensuing drive to put the lead at 6. The Giants drove down the field again, but were stymied when FS Nate Allen intercepted a Manning pass in the back of the end zone, sending the game to halftime at 20-14.

    The Eagles deferred at the beginning of the game, giving them the ball to begin the third quarter. The DeSean Jackson show ensued, as it took the electric wide receiver just two plays to get Philly back ahead by two scores. He started with a 46-yard kickoff return, giving his team excellent field position. On the next play, Kolb hit Jackson on a curl route and he shook through defenders 53-yards to paydirt. A 13-point lead in hand, the Eagles handed things over to their defense and asked them to win the game.

    The plan started out well, as Tyrell Hilliard intercepted an Eli Manning pass on the very next Giants drive. The Eagles were unable to capitalize however, as the normally reliable David Akers missed a 39-yard field goal attempt wide right. The Giants had new life, and Manning was finally able to get things going. He drove his boys downfield finding Ahmad Bradshaw in one-on-one coverage on the outside for a 23-yard score, bringing NY back within 6 at 27-21. The Giants defense stepped up and forced an Eagles punt and looked in position to take their first lead since the opening quarter. A nice mix of runs and passes got the Giants deep into Eagles territory. However, the two new stars of the Philly defense combined on a game-saving play. Hakeem Nicks looked as if he was headed for a game-changing touchdown, beating man coverage from the slot. However, D.J. Williams got a hand on the Manning pass at the last second, deflecting the ball into the hands of the rookie Hilliard with just over 2 minutes remaining.

    The Eagles once again played things close to the vest and were forced to punt the ball back to the Giants with about a minute and half left. New York got the ball to the Eagles 30-yard line, but Philly stood firm, forcing incomplete passes on third and fourth down to preserve the huge victory.

    Kevin Kolb picked up where he left off last season, misfiring on just two of his 19 passes and racking up 239 yards and two touchdowns. The Eagles couldn't muster anything on the ground all day, with the Giants linebacking core keeping McCoy in check. The tailback finished the day with 11 yards on as many carries. He did make his presence felt in the passing game, picking up 57 yards and a touchdown through the air. Jackson led the way, catching 4 balls for 82 yards and the score. For New York, Manning threw for 236 yards, but his four interceptions proved to be the difference. Brandon Jacobs picked up a punishing 85 yards on just 9 attempts with the Giants fighting from behind for much of the night.

    Fresh off a great win over the defending conference champs, things don't get any easier for Bing's Eagles. They welcome in the New England Patriots to Lincoln Financial Field in week 2, owners of a 12-4 record last season and a 34-17 opening week win over Miami. "We'll be ready to go," said Coach Bing, noting that "...hopefully the confidence we gained in tonight's game will carry over not only next week, but through the entire season."
