Blitzing is king in the modern NFL, and the Double A Gap Blitz, a legacy of late Eagles coordinator Jim Johnson, is one big game-changer. Here's how it works
Does Reid think T.O.'s absence helped Romo? - NFC East Blog - ESPN
"It's obvious he's a leader of the offense," said Reid. "Not that he wasn't before, but there were a couple of distractions there and he doesn't have any of that. He's playing great football." Hold it there one minute, Andy. What "distractions" would you be referring to? Could it be a certain wide receiver who spent some time on the Eagles' roster earlier this decade? "I think it was that hole in the dome," Reid deadpanned, referring to Texas Stadium. When a reporter alertly asked whether Donovan McNabb grew as a leader when certain "distractions" left town, Reid responded, "Well, we didn't have the hole in the dome."

Man Up: Fokou, Jordan show improvement | Philly | 12/30/2009
Moise Fokou - I thought he turned in a very solid performance, getting the start once again over Chris Gocong, who did not see the field. There were at least four plays where Fokou was active getting to the ballcarrier: a Moreno run in the first, a Buckhalter run in the second, and two Moreno runs in the third. Fokou also was not fooled by play-action in the third, pressuring Orton on an intentional grounding play. He's a rookie and a seventh-round pick, so he could cost you at any point. But it's clear McDermott is willing to gamble on Fokou's upside down the stretch and in the postseason.
