Wake-Up Call: Logan And the Azzinaro Effect

Eagles DT Bennie Logan on fieldBennie Logan was checking his Twitter feed and kept getting messages that read something to the effect of: “Now is your time.” That’s when he knew something was going on.

Veteran nose guard Isaac Sopoaga had been shipped to New England at the trade deadline, thrusting the third-round pick out of LSU into a starting role.

“It caught me by surprise,” said Logan. “I looked up to Isaac. He was a great influence on me, a great leader. But the next day, once I came here [to the NovaCare facility], I was like, ‘It’s time for me to step up and go forward. Can’t look back. He’s not here anymore. It’s just all on me now.’ “


Sopoaga's brief stint in Philadelphia was a disappointment. Still, it says something about the organization's confidence in Logan that it was comfortable removing the safety net and placing the starting tackle job in the hands of a rookie. So far, Logan has rewarded that confidence.

He has 23 tackles, two sacks and three hurries on the year. More important than stats, Logan is at the center of a defensive front that is, as Mychal Kendricks said, "killing it, bro."

The linebackers have been the biggest beneficiary of the front's work. The trio of Logan, Fletcher Cox and Cedric Thornton (along with the rest of the rotation) have been effective at occupying blockers, allowing Kendricks (who is currently sidelined with a knee injury) and DeMeco Ryans to roam free. According to team stats, that duo has 213 tackles between them through 10 games. Billy Davis has said on multiple occasions now that Ryans is having a Pro Bowl year. Ryans consistently credits the d-line for letting him work.

"I think this gets lost in it, but every single practice Azz [d-line coach Jerry Azzinaro] takes those guys on the sled, and they hit the sled, which is really uncommon in the NFL," said Davis. "The level of fundamental work we do on the defensive line, and we felt that we had to have that happen for us to grow into a two‑gap system, and the young guys by the way they're playing and the techniques, their footwork, their hand placement, I think it's a tribute to the coaching they're getting at the position level and their willingness to dive in and ‑‑ you see that in the run game, and it's also why DeMeco and Mychal are productive. The front line always has a lot to do with how the inside backers are playing."

The defensive front is making the job of Ryans -- the quarterback of the defense -- easier in more ways than one. Under the tutelage of Azzinaro, the defensive line has a sound understanding of concepts beyond their own positional play. They are capable of making their own checks pre-snap, according to Clifton Geathers.

"He got us football smarter," said Geathers of Azzinaro. "We can look at backfield sets, we can make checks on the d-line. We know what to do and we know where the linebackers are going to be. We can say certain things and we can do certain things and the linebackers understand what we're doing."

The Eagles have allowed just one 100-yard rusher this season, and have held opponents to under 100 rushing yards in five of their last six outings. Cox is 22 years old. Thornton, one of the year's biggest surprises, is 25. Logan, 23, is the greenest of the bunch. Together, they make up a unit that is suddenly gushing with promise.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

Michael Vick spoke about his situatuion on Tuesday. Does he still think he is the starter? From Jeff McLane:

"I don't know. That's not something that I'm thinking about at this point. The last thing I want to be is a distraction to this team. I'm just working hard to get myself healthy...

"I do consider myself a starter, but if coach has a viable explanation or good reason for why it should be anything different, I got to understand that. He's the coach. I'm the player. One thing about it, I'm confident in my abilities. We all know what I can do when I'm out there. I'm just an asset to this team as long as I'm here."

ESPN has the Eagles ranked 14th in their latest power rankings.

It is the first time the Eagles have been ranked ahead of the rest of their divisional rivals. Ashley Fox, one of the six panelists, had them at No. 11 on her ballot.

That's what you get after two weeks of historically excellent quarterback play and six weeks of reliably good defense. The Eagles remain volatile. They dropped seven spots after two weeks without an offensive touchdown, and have jumped six spots -- the biggest upward move -- in each of the past two weeks. They can continue their climb by ending their 10-game home losing streak Sunday against No. 23 Washington.

COMING UP

We'll speak to Kelly before practice.

  • GEAGLE

    Azz is a stud…Kelly hired a MONEY coaching staff…Teams are certainly going to try and poach our assistants, luckily AZZ is loyal to Chip..I know we are pretty set at DLINE, but AZZ is soo awesome that it makes me not mind giving him Shede Hagemen of Louis Nix to mold
    Whoever gave Nate a pair of BALLS should be the dolphins new coach..

    • nicksaenz1

      People are loyal to money to provide for their families first and foremost. Jeff better be willing to give a few extra bucks to our guys if he wants to keep some coaching continuity.

      • pjcostello

        In all fairness, that has never been a problem.

        • knighn

          This is true. The Eagles had the highest paid coaching staff (in the NFL) for at least a few years of the Andy Reid era. I know people look at the salary cap situation and often assume that the Eagles are cheap… but even in the Cap the Eagles just usually end up spending on the back end instead of on the front end.

          • pjcostello

            I would posit that the Eagles under Lurie have not been shy about spending at all — even before the Nnamdi/DRC free agent binge they embarked upon a couple of years ago. I recall guys like TO, Javon Kearse, Jon Runyon, Asante Samuel, et al. The Eagles would have one or two top-flight off-season free agent targets, and go get them. Sometimes it worked, sometimes not, but I cannot recall them being outbid on a player they wanted. Now, we can all argue all day about whether they selected the right players! But I don’t think we can argue about whether they are/were willing to spend to get talent.

  • GEAGLE

    Ay Cliff:
    Randle next to Nerlens?
    MCW, Selden and Parker?
    MCW, Selden and Wiggins?
    Nerlens and Embidd BLOCK PARTY? embiid is a serious center prospect. So big, so athletic, so coordinated…offensively advanced for a guy his size who only been playing for 3 years…

    Selden will be the next Harden…we have to take him with the pelicans pick(should prob be on the board)

    • nicksaenz1

      I passed out before I could watch my Dukies. Parker is just sick, though. Would love to see MCW and Parker. I’m hoping Parker stays for 2 years, though.

      • GEAGLE

        God NO!! I will cry if Jabari stays in school…
        ..
        Dude go watch Jabari in the first half of last nights game, what a treat that was!!!

        • nicksaenz1

          I’m going to. But I’m a Duke fan first when it comes to all hoops. So I hope he stays all 4, ideally. I haven’t been watching pro ball that much since I was a kid. MCW is starting to change that, though. Kid’s game was meant for the NBA.

          • GEAGLE

            Surprised Hinkie didn’t trade ET away as soon as all of Philly got to see Randle wigg and Jabari lol..

            This is a very special time for the sixers. A year like this barely comes along once a decade…If we sacrifice this year, our future becomes so damn bright. I need all these kids to declare for the draft making drafting anywhere in the top 4, CANT MISS superstar!!!

            Dante Exum is officially not going to college and entering the draft, so if Jabari goes to the NBA, that’s 4 SUPERSTARS which means there is NO RISK involved in losing the most games. If you lose the most games, the worst you can do in the lottery is 4…in most drafts, the drop off from 1-4 is staggering…if Jabari leaves college there is literally NO RISK involved in finishing with the worst record now that Exum is leaving school….plus the more top guys that go to the NBA, the better quality of player that will still be on the board when we use the pelicans pick..
            ..
            Jabari is like the Winner version of Carmelo Anthony, with some crafty Paul Peirce sprinkled in

          • nicksaenz1

            I like Pierce, so I’m good w/ that. Plus he Ds up…. Pelicans pick is protected, so you need them to be half decent. Good luck…. Jabari is smart, so I think he stays another year so he can all but guarantee he gets #1 money. Why go #4 when you can go #1 a year later and only get better because you have the best coach in the history of coaches teaching you the game? It’s not like he’s Mark Barkley where staying is going to cost him 3 rounds and 20mil.

          • Token

            Why #4?

            Parker could be the #1 pick THIS year.

          • nicksaenz1

            Because GMs are weird and we don’t know how the season plays out. Lots of time and room for improvement from all of these kids. #4 assumes worst case scenario for Parker if all of the others show drastic improvement.

          • Token

            Unless something really off the wall happens…. Wiggins, Parker and Randle are the top three picks. All getting endorsement deals. The money isnt that far off.

            Im hoping the Pelicans end up at the end of the top 10. Probably gonna be some good players left by then.

          • nicksaenz1

            Yeah, I hope they’re 6th worst team so that pick isn’t protected.

          • Token

            So your a duke fan, no wonder you want him staying lol.

            If you look at the box score you would think Wiggins had a good night.

            But I think he had one jumper the whole game. Pure slasher. Got a number of breakaways. Doesnt know how to get himself open at this level yet.

            I dunno, I just really like Parkers confidence. Should be a good year for college ball.

          • cliff henny

            it’s all about projecting though. wiggins is just explosive, but still fundamentally sound. i can see why he’s rated ahead of parker. dont get me wrong, i’m crapping tyffany cufflinks at 2 or 3 if they get parker. cant go wrong with any of them.

          • GEAGLE

            Keep in mind wiggins game is the least suited for college. His athleticism will make him an incredible NBA player in 3 years..

            Parker could be the first pick this year, so I’m not sure why he would stay in school, especially with a MONSTER Center Prospect, Jhalil Okafor will be in the 2015 draft who has enough potential to get picked ahead of Jabari depending on what he did in school..
            ….
            Jabari was the top junior! then he got Injured and wiggins came along and took his spot. he saw what his last injury cost him having to hear about Wiggins everywhere he turns, ii find it hard to believe that he would risk staying in school and possibly getting injured again after he has a monster freshman year

          • cliff henny

            towns jr too.
            .
            i dont see parker coming back. nba draft just doesnt work like that. get out, get money, get better

          • Token

            Yea, a athletic Paul Pierce. Probably a pretty good comparison.

          • nicksaenz1

            Be fair, Pierce is old. Easy to forget that 10 years ago he made a lot of people look stupid while averaging 23+ppg.

          • Token

            ?

            I know. Im saying a young Pierce. A more athletic version.

          • nicksaenz1

            Ok, I’m still questioning how much more athletic you think he is than a young Pierce. If he is, it isn’t by much.

    • Token

      Thats if the Sixers arent stupid and start losing like they should.

      But last night was the first ive seen of these three kids.

      If I had my pick of them, id take Parker right now. Randle second. Wiggins third.

      Parker and Randle look like they could probably play in the league right now. Wiggins has work to do. Im surprised he is 6’8. But hes skinny.

      It just looks to come so easy to Parker. Plus it looks like he has that skill you cant teach, the killer instinct, rising to the moment.

      Wiggins looked fine on some breakaway dunks…. But Parker looks like a better overall player.

      Randle, those free throws tho……

    • cliff henny

      lol…replied to post above…hinskie needs to unload turner, hawes and young now! full unbridled no-conscious tankmode! it’s splitting hairs between these 3. taking wiggins 1 just too explosive and that jumper will have range even if he didnt show 3 range last night, 2 is randle he was manchild against mich st mean thats an izzo team he was doing work against 3 parker so smooth does make you think of grant hill. i saw hill play before injuries as piston, never saw jordan live, but no one looking great look so easy, parker has that quality.

      • GEAGLE

        Lol don’t worry, Hinkie doesn’t give two craps about what reporters or anyone think…ET,Hawes and maybe even Thad will be shipped away and then Hinkie will just hide out in a bunker until the draft,only leaving to go scout college players(wearing a clever disguise of course)

        Espn literally just called ET the BIGGEST surprise of the NBA season..people are dumb. They love their instant gratification. They saw ET play well and thought “wow if he keeps playing so well maybe hinkie will keep him” HAHAHAHAHA what a joke the media is. the better ET plays, the more Hinkie will lick his lips to trade him..
        ….
        One of the 3 won’t make it past Xmas, my guess is that ET is gone before new years

        • cliff henny

          ET is playing out of statistical norm. he’s making plays above lebron. yup, hope he gets another month and hinskie knows it wont last forever.
          .
          you are seldom looked really nice.

  • nicksaenz1

    Sounds like Mike’s accepting his role. Wonder if he’s willing to stay next year knowing it’s as a backup, or if he’s going to try to get on another squad where he knows he’ll get a shot to start but the team won’t do anything.

    • GEAGLE

      Doubt it…
      ..
      Vick needs to decide what he wants to do…Does he want to Allen Iverson his way out of the NFL because he isn’t ready to be honest with himself and accept a back up role…or he can extend his career and collect another 4 years worth of paychecks….
      ….
      If Chip and Mike sit down and together make it CLEAR to this locker room that this is NICK FOLES team, than I wouldn’t mind having Mike on the bench. The man used his iconic stature to lead us and keep us together thru some messy locker room situations(talking to you Riley)..The only thing that makes me want to get rid of Vick is he brings the DUMBEST fans in sports with him wherever he goes. Its like he brainwashed all the idiot. he is the pied piper of stupid NFL fans…

      • nicksaenz1

        That’s kind of my point. If he can accept the role I’d love to keep him around. He might even get a ring before he hangs them up for good (wishful thinking, obv). But apparently his wife wanted to stay after last season, so maybe he finishes up an Eagle. I wouldn’t be mad as long as he doesn’t try to assert himself into a role he’s not going to get back and ruin chemistry. He just got himself out of bankruptcy as of this year (congrats, Mike) so hopefully he’s willing to accept paychecks for a mil or 2 a year. I’d be fine with Howie paying him 2mil a year to be backup. That’d be under $4mil for all 3 QBs for the next two years if we don’t draft one next year. Build up the roster, and if the salary cap increases significantly in 2015, pay Foles, assuming he can earn and keep the job. We can basically pull a Seattle and have a nice run here the next couple years before we have to make some tough choices.

        • GEAGLE

          Yeah I totally agree. I would b willing to continue making Vick fans look stupid for a few more years so that we could have a good backup, especially I since I think personel wise, we will be much closer to competing than people realize once we have another offseason of quality acquisitions.

          This is definitely an opportunity for the Seattle model. pay your QB position peanuts, and go stack the rest of The roster..we have 3 more years to win before haing to pay Nick big momey

          • nicksaenz1

            2, he’s under contract through 2015. I’d rather be able to give him an extension for a little less after next season if I can. That’s assuming he continues to play well and earns it… I definitely think we’re close to being a serious contender. Fill 4 or 5 holes through draft and FA and we’re in a great spot.

          • A Roy

            I’ve been thinking about this for several days. While I would love to see Foles continue to be great and have Vick as a backup next year, (remember Foles was concussed and that makes him more suceptible…thinking Primeau and Lindross here,,), I think he would go for a payday. There are several teams that will need a QB and would pay Vick more than the backup salary he would make in Philadelphia.

          • nicksaenz1

            Vick wouldn’t get signed until after draft, I think. So it really depends on the QB market after the fact.

          • cliff henny

            not sure how you bring back vick as a backup, and pay him more than foles, just not the way the nfl works. also, agree, vick would be a great backup but it is so much better in these forums without all the fanboys with agenda driven posts.
            .
            also, if anyone wasnt supporting sixers in full tank mode, last night should have brought them to their senses. i dont care which of the 3 they get, but wiggins parker and randle are awesome. gun to head 1. wiggins 2 randle 3 parker. wiggins is just too explosive and randle in nfl mlb on goalline intense.

          • BlindChow

            Foles isn’t allowed to renegotiate until after his third year, so pretty much any veteran you bring in will be getting paid more than him. Plus, Vick’s familiarity with the system, players and coaching staff would make him a better fit than someone off the street. I wouldn’t be opposed to it.

          • cliff henny

            thanks, didnt know that. though a guy i’d like to see a late rd flyer on is logan tthomas out of vatech. just dont think vick is in eagles plans. dont sign a guy to 3 yr contract then void final yr before he even sees field.

          • Andy124

            Please no. The kid is not a good passer. He’s even worse than Vick was coming out of college.

          • cliff henny

            7th round, not 2nd, relax. hopefully never sees field, but the tools that kid has, and now with a coaching staff that can develope, these are the guys we want late.

          • Andy124

            Maybe with this coaching staff. But I still gotta think that even in the 7th round there would be better options.

          • cliff henny

            like poyer? 7th round just looking for a guy with 1 nice skill that you can work around. thomas has rocket arm, size and speed. with this coaching staff, he’d be a steal.

          • Andy124

            I hear Kinne has a real strong arm. (not kidding).

          • cliff henny

            i liked barkley. results sucked, but he showed major improvement from summer. he needs another yr of rehab his arm just isnt there yet. he did some other things i liked. wont freak if he’s 2nd and project at 3rd.

          • Andy124

            Absolutely.

          • bentheimmigrant

            Yeah, but doesn’t he have like 5 inches on Vick? Either way, I imagine someone will pick him up to try to see if he’s salvageable. Might be interesting if he’s willing to switch positions like Brad Smith.

      • EaglePete

        I think people sometimes forget his financial situation. He has to be absolutely elated at this point to just get out of bankruptcy and away from the wrong circle of people. That alone is enough to be happy coming from what hes been through. I imagine hes smart enough to know there is still money to be made with his skill set. As much as Im not a fan of his, hes still better than a lot of starting QBs, just dont think hes worth investing in as a starter to slow down growth or figuring out who can be a future starter, on any team.

    • Will

      I wonder if Nick Foles got a Kevlar Vest like Vick?

      • bentheimmigrant

        I’m more worried about his head… Seems every time he goes down his head snaps back pretty hard. What do they have for that? A turtle shell or something?

        • Will

          Good question, pump up the air in the Helmet…The Eagles O-Line has stepped up in protection lately Thank GOD…

          • bentheimmigrant

            I’m kindof expecting a day when helmets are connected to the shoulderpads by some kind of contraption that prevents whip-lash like events. They’re going to have to do something about all the concussions before long.

          • Shaniqua1990

            whiplash is better than having your spinal cord absorbing all the force cause your head can’t move

    • BlindChow

      I can see him being out of the league at the beginning of the year, then go to a team to start once the injuries begin (like Cleveland or Buffalo this year). Otherwise he’ll most likely be competing against a rookie for the starting job in a place like Minnesota or Jacksonville.

      • bentheimmigrant

        It’ll have to be Minn… the final resting place of Eagles QBs.

    • Maggie

      I still say, why not give Vick a coaching internship? He gets paid, stays in the organization, gets a chance to see if he really can coach young QB’s. Could lead to assistant coach position. Worth a try.

      • BlindChow

        He’s probably a few years away from even considering that.

  • evanphilly

    Remember kids….Chip got fleeced by Belichick in the Sopoaga deal.

    • Bdawk20

      Came in here to say this. Our team is a mess without Sopoaga. What were we thinking? I mean, it’s worse than trading Dom Brown for Jose Bautista.

    • BlindChow

      Sopoaga is listed on the Pro Bowl voting site as an Eagle.

      His stat line is: 0 – 0 – 0 – 0.

      • Adam

        Let’s send him (back) to Hawaii.

    • Corey Dawson

      I still don’t get why anyone ever said it in the first place. Sopoaga was signed as a FA stop gap nose tackle, due to the scheme change and not having a experienced NT on the team, until we could find the long term replacement through the draft or coaching the DTs on the team up. We then drafted Logan, he got coached up and rotated in, and once the coaching staff felt he could start they dumped Sopoaga and his salary as planned, they no longer needed the stop gap. The only reason they traded him instead of cutting him is because they got a 7th and were able to avoid any salary cap penalties.

      • theycallmerob

        Did take a bit of a financial hit, considering he was a rental, and ended up giving Soap + 6th for their 5th (no 7th involved)
        But as I said that day, I still think we got the better end of it. Moving up in the draft is moving up, period, especially for a player that should not have been seeing snaps anyway

        • cliff henny

          ended up getting 3m for some play, but seemed like a great locker room guy. if he taught logan how to be a pro’s pro, got off cheap.

          • theycallmerob

            but seemed like a great locker room guy

            I think that, more than anything, defined our offseason acquisitions. Remember, Logan and Barkley had the two best interviews. Casey, Barwin, Fletch, Chung…..these are glue guys, role players, and pros.
            May be the biggest difference, wonder if it’s more Chip or more Howie (after the ’11 fiasco). May explain some of the choices (like I know many wanted a different S rather than Chung).
            Either way, something we haven’t seen in this locker room in years

          • cliff henny

            it’s great when you get hof/locker room combo, dawkins, but dont have to look far to see teams implode from inside out…like last yrs team.

            LMAO….Nick Foles is looking good no doubt. A Home Win would cement it for me…Home Divsion game Win for 1st…sound familiar? Which QB is gonna show up? Fantastic Foles or Nicky Nose Dive? Eagles 3.5 point favorites going in at Home against Washington…I think Foles has an 8 TD game in him…

          • EaglePete

            I worry about slowing down RG3, hes improving each week. Not sure what happened in that 2nd half against minny, they kind of fell off. Hope that keeps up.

          • Will

            Hopefully if Kendricks plays he can spy RGIII again…Cole ,Ryans everyone just gotta be Gap sound and Execute…

  • nicksaenz1

    Hope Logan keeps playing lights out. I said a fews ago to a few people that I think he just needs a little more coaching up and getting his grown man strength. He doesn’t even have the latter yet and he’s coming in and playing like a boss. Imagine in 2 or 3 years when this kid is fully developed. I hope that salary cap increases in 2015 and beyond because we’re going to have some studs from the last two drafts to pay.

    • Adam

      Can’t wait for Chip to work his voodoo sports science.

    • Corey Dawson

      Completely agree. The kid is playing great and over the next 2-5 years is goinh put on at least another 30 lb of muscle as he gets that grown ass man strength. We might already have our NT of the future.

    • Mr. Wu

      yeah Logan was a good find….still remember draft night and screaming out loud “Bennie Who??” lol

  • Will

    Azz coaching ‘em up…..

  • Adam

    Rewatched the game last night and some of our backups played really well. Barbre didn’t look like a guy that was out of football last year. One play that stuck out was the first touchdown to DJax. Barbre dropped back and blocked the OLB (Matthews I believe) put someone was blitzing from the outside, either a corner or a safety. He left his block and picked up the blitz perfectly. I’m pretty sure that was his first snap of the game.

    Goode and Carmichael looked really good as well. Carmichael is already better than WIlliams. Goode over pursued some plays but he did a great job of blowing up blockers when he couldn’t make the tackles. These guys are former mid round picks (Goode 5th, Carmichael 4th) so maybe this coaching staff is doing a better job of maximizing their potential.

      There’s a lot of things this coaching staff is doing a better job of…

      the other teams have been doing it for years, taking someone else’s trash and making it gold, about freaking time the Eagles start doing it. seeing the play of cooper, barbre, roc, allen, fletcher, it’s across all lines. kelly’s taking mediocre talent making it look good. guy is as advertised, exactly what he did at oregon, does more with less. wait till he gets his guys in here.

          Hard not to be excited right now. I’m trying to come up with ways to be pessimistic about this upcoming game… I never like to go in to a game feeling too confident… and the best I can come up with to scare myself is that it’s a home game.

          seeing it already. i’ll bet good money cooper parlays this yr into nice contract, and goes right back to ’11-’12 version, and rookie wr they bring in puts up great numbers.

        one of CKs biggest upsides was his ability to coach guys up. Seems like everyone forgets that part but we are seeing it everywhere. Thats as much the coaching staff as anything but as we learned from Reid, you better hire good people around you. I think Reid did that in KC also and its paying off. He just made some errors here after a decade of work, the odds were it was bound to happen on the down side I suppose.

      Def. amped about Roc, I was really concerned about the depth at that spot. Wasn’t it Marsh who saw snaps after Fletch was out of the SD game? or was that when Chung was seeing snaps in the slot?
      Either way, Roc looks better than both Prater and Marsh. Hope they keep him around for a bit.

    Vick has matured tremendously! What an awesome statement from him.

  • Brandon Boykin, OLB

    Oh look! More picks under Howie that are stepping up… Interesting. Very very interesting…

    Cox, Logan, Thornton, and Curry were all great finds. I’m thrilled to have them for many years. It looks like the Eagles won’t have to worry about their DL for a long time. Now it’s time to stock up on OLBs and the secondary.

    Hate to point out the obvious, but they keep leaving out Vinny Curry. Any time he’s in there you notice him. I don’t have the time to see how many plays he was in(Shiel?), but with extremely limited playing time he’s got four sacks this season. How come nobody talks about this guy? In either the team or the press he hardly gets mentioned.

      I just checked it out and he leads the team in Sacks..

    Guess Chip’s truckload of assistant coaches is paying off.
