Special Teams

Postby FalconsAreTheBest » Mon Sep 12, 2005 1:56 pm

This is why we will win.

The eagles special teams has been horrendous in preseason. I know its preseason but Andy left most of his 1st team STers for most of the games after the pitt debacle. They are lost. They get no coverage on kicks/punts, no wedges on returns. Not to mention their punter has a hernia.

We are easily the best ST unit in the NFL, and the eagles have looked terrible in this aspect during the preseason. Rossum will return a kick or punt for a TD, I havent decided yet, and we will block atleast one punt. I heard that Johnsons hernia is makeing have a slow release on his punts.

Book it ;)

Playing in Philly in the middle of winter had a neutralizing effect on our ST especially punting. How much effect that has to our overall game we'll find out tonight.

ST is the only place that we have a distinct edge on Philly but that may prove to be enough if we can play them close every where else. If we get good field position all night we would easily be at an advantage.
