The Linc - Eagles to use more 3-4 looks

Birds' 3-4 Thoughts, Westbrook update | Eagletarian | 05/13/2010
McDermott acknowledged what we've all been speculating on -- as he tries to find ways to use all his new personnel, he is thinking of doing more with 3-4 looks. The Eagles' base defense will remainAntonio Dixon, future nose tackle? 4-3, but they've shown 3-4 here and there in the past, and that tendency very well might increase. The biggest obstacle would seem to be the lack of a true 3-4-style, monster nose tackle. McDermott said he thought Brodrick Bunkley could fill the bill, and he noted that Antonio Dixon is "320 and rising." The Eagles also have some variations in which they employ five down linemen, and that might be something McDermott does more with, as well.

Paul Domowitch: Yards after catch will be big part of Eagles' offense with Kolb | Philadelphia Daily News | 05/12/2010
The Eagles likely will become a more traditional West Coast offense this season, heavier on short and intermediate routes like slants and curls and crosses that will give receivers more yards-after-the-catch opportunities than the deeper patterns the Eagles used when McNabb was behind center. Doesn't mean they won't throw the ball deep. Just means they probably won't throw it deep nearly as much.
