D-Line Dominance

ITB Postgame Live: Eagles Ride O-Line and D-Line to Big Win


It was another week and another masterclass in the trenches for the Philadelphia Eagles.

On the latest “Inside The Birds Postgame Live,” former Eagles TE Clay Harbor joined Adam Caplan and Geoff Mosher to review the Week 3 25-11 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Defensive Line

The Eagles defensive line feasted all night in the 25-11 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jalen Hurts

Geoff Mosher: “He played efficiently but he did turn the ball over twice. It seems like he is holding onto the ball a little bit longer than he did last year…I think he is taking too many hits as a passer over the first three games.”

Clay Harbor: “For having an offensive line as good as he does, he has been holding onto the ball awfully long…he wasn’t as clean, wasn’t as efficient.”

Adam Caplan: “He was not very sharp, wasn’t bad but nothing special. Nothing like last year. When he is on, that ball is out and he is decisive. I think he is still looking for that home run throw.”

D’Andre Swift

Mosher: “When you have a guy with as much juice and explosion as D’Andre Swift, Week 1 still remains a headscratcher to us. It’s pretty clear which guy should be your main guy when you need to move the chains.”

Run Defense

Harbor: “[Opposing teams] are not going to be able to run on the Eagles because they have Jalen Carter and Jordan Davis who can rush the passer, too. This is going to be a great duo for years to come. I don’t think for as long as these guys are on the team that people are going to be able to run against the Birds.”

Reed Blankenship

Harbor: “I have been so impressed with Reed. The amount of ground he covered on that interception was impressive. And this dude is a force in the run game. Watching him on tape in the run game, he could play Sam linebacker. He plays heavy in the run game and is not a liability in coverage. The Eagles got a find here.”
