There's a lot of buzz about this Eagle team and what they will run scheme wise on both sides of the ball? Who will be the starting QB? What type of Defense will we see. I think Chip's new Offense will feature a high tempo inside/outside zone run scheme as the base, with a new emphasis on the passing game that Chip's had on the drawing board of his mind. The cool thing about Chip I discovered pouring over Oregon Duck offensive footage was that Chip's offensives were evolving and changing always giving defenses doubt, match up headaches, the mis- direction out of similar formations. The creativity, intelligence and sheer brilliance is wonderful to watch, study and break down.
I look at the player's on this roster who are headed into Training camp knowing that of the 90 men 33 of them aren't gonna make it to the final cut. I initially thought the player's on the defense might be lacking a bit to run an effective 4-3 under scheme. Like everyone else I'm on the outside looking in. Yet the player's are here to field a formidable team on both sides of the ball.
The sheer energy and competitiveness to make this roster and playing against one another will greatly improve this team along with better coaching, better schemes, better play calling. The NFC East will be a fun rivalry to watch play out.
I expect us to score points, win games and hold on to leads. Chip was 10-3 his first year at Oregon as the New Head Coach. I really do not see why his success won't continue.
