Eagles Wake-Up Call: Spelling DeMeco

NFL: Detroit Lions at Philadelphia Eagles

The number for DeMeco Ryans last year was 1,156.

That’s how many snaps he played, the most of any linebacker in the NFL, according to Football Outsiders.




"I think if you ask DeMeco, he felt as fresh as he’s ever felt in his career," said Chip Kelly last month. "But I think it’s a byproduct of how we practiced and prepared for him to be that way."

Ryans is a Kelly favorite - a true professional who practices, trains and studies hard. But the truth is he did play too many snaps last year. And there were a few reasons for that. Number one, Billy Davis was installing a brand new defense and needed someone to direct a young group up front. That was Ryans' job.

Number two, the Eagles didn't like their depth behind Ryans. And number three, the defense did a poor job of getting off the field, allowing opponents to convert on third down 40.3 percent of the time (24th).

The Eagles played a base 3-4 in 2013. Their primary sub package was simple: the nose tackle comes off the field and Brandon Boykin trots out as a fifth defensive back. But Ryans and Mychal Kendricks always stayed put.

That could change, however, in 2014.

"I think you’d like to develop depth behind those guys so that they’re not playing every snap, but you’re still gonna play your best players," Kelly said. "So you always have to make decisions. Is putting someone else in… is it just to get him out of the game? Or is that a good matchup for us? But I think that’s kind of a priority for us is developing depth behind those two guys [Ryans and Kendricks]."

The Eagles did not add that LB depth in free agency, which means it could be coming in May's draft. Jason Phillips is coming off a torn ACL. Najee Goode showed some flashes when he got an opportunity. Jake Knott has been suspended for the first four games. And Emmanuel Acho barely played (88 snaps).

In other words, there are a lot of question marks behind Ryans and Kendricks.

"I think it’s gonna be personnel-based," said Howie Roseman of the team's sub packages. "It’s gonna be who we have on the team, who can fill those roles."

Given his versatility, Kendricks is likely to stay on the field in most packages. Ryans, however, turns 30 in July, and his strength is against the run. It makes sense that the Eagles would look to add an inside linebacker who can cover in the draft.

Of course, given his nature and background, Kelly won't easily admit that the high number of snaps is really such a big deal.

"We didn’t have any issues physically with those guys so I don’t see that," he said. "It’s interesting when they always talk about how many snaps your defensive guys played when our offense played more than that. No one ever says your offense played more snaps. The most snaps I think were [Evan] Mathis and Lane Johnson. But no one ever says Lane and Evan played too many snaps. But it’s defensively they played too many snaps. Obviously you don’t want your defense to play a ton of snaps. You’d love to have those guys get ‘em off the field, but you also have to be able to practice and play that way."

WHAT YOU MISSED

The Eagles hosted Florida State WR Kelvin Benjamin yesterday.

They also took a look at Montana inside linebacker Jordan Tripp.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

Greg A. Bedard of The MMQB weighs in on DeSean Jackson:

I think it’s ridiculous how some in the media overreact to stories reported by others, with the DeSean Jackson story being a prime example. To insinuate the Eagles smeared Jackson on the way out the door is just lazy. The story came out, he got released, there must be some connection. Why? From my experience as a beat writer, when you learn that a team is parting ways with a talented player like Jackson, you better be trying to find out why. When I was at the Boston Globe, I reported that the Patriots were likely going to release receiver Brandon Lloyd after a season in which he caught 74 passes because his erratic behavior had grown tiresome. Lloyd was later released and hasn’t played in the league again. By the Jackson rationale, the Patriots must leaked that information to me, right? I wish. My information didn’t come from the team. Jackson is not exactly a model player. He has a high salary. And he had curious connections to gang members. Those are not smear tactics; they’re called facts.

Redskins LT Trent Williams apparently did some campaigning for Jackson. From CSN Washington:

Shortly after DeSean Jackson was released by Philaldephia last month, Trent Williams reached for his cellphone and sent the former Eagles wide receiver a text message.

“I just asked him if [the Redskins] were even in the picture,” Williams said. “When he told me that they were talking, I just told him basically that we would love have a player of his caliber, and that our team would be willing to embrace him and try to do big things.”

    Spelling DeMeco often proves more difficult than it seems it should. I think it’s because people typically forget to capitalize the “M”.

    • G_WallyHunter

      Ya and weird how some people just completely forget the first two letters

          I don’t see a point in doing it unless you are going to try and be realistic about it….I also don’t just list the guys I like, there are plenty of guys I love that I don’t view as realistic options for the Eagles so I don’t include those guys,,,.

      I’d love it if we snagged Beckham.

      • IrishEagle25

        absolutely love him.. great routes great hands, returned kicks… caught inside and outside.. if hes there at #22 i hope we take him.. thinking the jets would go cooks if they are picking a WR

  • Bullwinkle

    I read that DeSean was not at the Skins first voluntary workouts with their new head coach. He is on vacation at a private villa. Seems like he’s off to a good start with his new team.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/washington-redskins-begin-otas–desean-jackson-on-vacation-at-a-private-villa-190403532.html;_ylt=AwrBJR543ENT5WgAj_9NbK5_

    • Johnny Domino

      But has he got a sconce guy yet?

    • ohitsdom

      Sadly, I am well aware. His twitter and instagram account were so obnoxious, making it abundantly clear he’s on a #privateisland and #privatevilla.

  • tommy_the_k

    I hope Trent Williams enjoys DeSean’s tweets and pictures from his isaland vacation while Trent is working hard learning the new coaches’ schemes.

    • GEAGLE

      Since 1998….the skins signed free agents who before arriving in Washington, combined for 77 probowls…out of all those probowlers, the only one to make a probowl after signing on to take Snyders money, was Deangello hall lol
      ..
      This will be similar to when a quality organization let Mike Wallace walk he signed big money with the Dolphins and hasn’t looked like half the player he was for the steelers…..

      • G_WallyHunter

        Lets all hope eh… Would be nice. So funny he skips the voluntary vacation to go to a photoshoot… You’d think he’d be at least smart enough to attend that, who knows how the locker room really feels about it though..

        • GEAGLE

          In fairness to the idiot…it’s all about whether he told the GM and Coach about this back when he signed, hope he had the brains to make them aware of this

          • cliff henny

            he did, it’s an excused absence. but, you’d think he’d be itching to start anew. get reps in with RG3. didn’t care enough to see what he’s doing that he had to miss camp, seems like eagles’ fans suspecting Kelly questioned jax’ commitment ties right in

          • GEAGLE

            You would think….clearly Desean wouldn’t

          • anon

            OK GEAGLE, sconces did the same thing. People ripped him but guys like you were like calm down. It’s OTAs. Sconces was fine, i think Djax will be better than fine. I can’t believe people are even talking about this nonsense.

            Further Sconces was barely a starter not a guy that’s a multi-year pro bowler.

          • Adam G

            Situation is way different. Sconces was not run out of baltimore for being a malcontent. Just shows Desean’s mindset.

          • anon

            No — did you see all the fights he started in the 2013 season? He pushed a ref in the SB, etc. and we’re talking about a backup CB.

          • Adam G

            On the field fighting is not the same as being an off the field malcontent. Really is an apples/oranges situation. Desean is now just confirming what everybody was thinking.

          • greenblood0118

            But…but…the Eagles released him because they’re stupid…he’s a team player!

      • greenblood0118

        What a telling stat…Washington…the place where free agents go to die.

        • anon

          To me says more about coaching than the players. I’m glad they stay terrible, their fans are THE WORST. The before and after with McNabb was priceless.

  • GEAGLE

    Really hoping we add Christian Kirksey from Iowa…he is a sick weapon in coverage for subpackages. A LB who can comfortably line up over slot WRs and stick with TEs gives Billy a ton of subpackage versatility….our defenses was so basic last year, this year we start to build on that…
    ..
    Additions of Nolan and Malcolm allow us to incorporate a Dime defense
    ..
    We have 3 safeties we can put in a game, so Billy gets to run the 3 safety looks he wanted to run last year…
    ….
    You want a coverage alternative to Meco for subpackages, but it’s a big misconception that Meco is horrible in of overage….no matter who we add, there will be times we want Meco on the field in obvious passing situations?!!you just want to have a change up in your arsenal.
    having Barwin!Kendricks and Kirksey, gives us some really solid LBs in coverage.

    Everyone talks about the ROLB we obviously need to add, but I think it’s just as importantly to also add a LOLB/ILB hybrid, which is the role we forced Casey Mathews into last year..Ideally that player is van Noy…..if we can’t land him I hope we can get Kirksey, C. Jones or Telvin…

    Add those two LBs and a NT/DE and our front 7 will be set, and should make life for the secondary that much easier…

    • anon

      I actually think the eagles have NEEDs in this draft — not starters necessarily but quality depth. ROLB is a need, WR is a lesser need, ILB is a need, if we trade Mathis (not happening) I think that’s another need at guard. If Meco goes down that’s a huge setback for he D b/c he’s in a leadership position. It’d be nice to see Kendricks start to take that over but it’s unclear to me that’ he’s ready to direct others — i think he’s still trying to get comfy in the system.

      If Meco / Cole goes down I think it’s the same as us losing a CB last year — you’r left with a Roc Carmicheal filling in. I wish there were better LBs in this field. Given their importance to the scheme I figured they’d be more aggressive about finding them.

  • G_WallyHunter

    So articles aren’t about desean and people comment about desean?
    See johnny G, can’t get rid of it regardless of the topic of the article, its about Meco and LBs for goodness sake and we talkin bout desean? (practice)

    • oreofestar

      Desean was my favorite player but I am over it and nothing more than a quick mention will come from me….I am in full draft mode

      • G_WallyHunter

        Ya ppl lets get in draft mode even though I don’t know prospects half as well as some of you, you teach me

        Brace yourselves the draft is coming, that means those dumb cowgirls get to make a first round bust pick again

      • cliff henny

        when the locker room article came out, even if it’s 50% true, that’s still enough to see why Kelly moved on. then only Washington willing to pay 8m per year, can see why he was untradeable. fan in me says wish they could of held it together for 1more year, but have better understanding of move now.

        • James Hathaway

          Everyone sees this as a deep draft, not just the Eagles. Moving up into the mid rounds will be exceptionally expensive. I can see them trying to move up, but it would be after their pick at 22. THat would probably cost next year’s 1st as well as an additional pick in this year’s drat. With it being a “deep draft” i don’t see the need for so many first round picks.

    • Maggie

      Like your screen name. It’s original.

  • Token

    Im not that worried about spelling Ryans. Im more concerned with how hes gonna be replaced. Right now we have two ILBs that arent all that great. Now even if Kendricks suddenly becomes this all pro that people dream about, we still need another ILB by 2015 IMO. Worst case scenario we need two new guys. Im surprised they are paying Meco 6.8 this year. Hes next offseason Avant, real nice guy and leader but diminishing skill set. They need to find a ILB in this draft.

    So what ILBs do you guys like. Im thinking its something they would address in like rounds 3-5. Cant see them spending a top 2 pick on one. Id like to see a rock in there. A thumper. Someone who can step up and stop the Saints from running at will in that playoff game. Neither current ILB we have is that guy. Even if he reaches his full potential Kendricks isnt that guy. I think pairing a player like that with a Kendricks is a good fit. So who are we lookin at?

    • anon

      If we make the playoffs going to be hard for 31yo guys to be effective deep in the season when they’ve played every snap all year — i don’t care how much sports stuff you do (same for fat guys). I think the point about snap count is misleading D does a lot more running around with bigger guys and longer players.

      Was going to say i’m surprised there’s not more of a rotation i thought goode played well enough to spell kendricks, but if the drop off from starters is that big that’s a real problem (Roc carmicheal flashback).

    • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

      Please stop with the NO game already. When a team is selling out in a sub package to stop the passing game, the run breaks down. It happens. The game was winnable. With a mediocre, transitioning defense. Plenty of things the offense and ST could have done better, too.
      No one will argue we need an ILB upgrade, but it’s not because of that one game.

      For me? My favorite prospects and what I suspect is the round they go, or where I value them
      ***(ranked not just by talent, but also value; aka, getting a B- guy in 4th is higher than a B guy in 3rd)

      1- Christian Jones (3rd or 4th)
      2- KVN (3rd)
      3- Zumwalt (3rd)
      4- Smallwood (2nd or 3rd)
      5- Barrow (4th or 5th)
      6- Tripp (4th)
      7- Shazier (2nd, maybe 3rd)
      8- Shembo (5th)
      9- Bullough (6th)

      UDFA- Brock Coyle, Andrew Jackson, Howard Jones,

      • Token

        One game as a example. Certainly not the only game. Im not fooled into thinking our run D is good because we faced a bunch of junk teams missing their best players down the stretch.

        ILB needs a upgrade. I suspect after this year it will need a dire upgrade for 2015 as I dont believe Kendricks will ever quite take that step everyone is waiting for. If he does it certainly helps. But they will still need another guy. Not to mention depth, which there really isnt any of.

  • myeaglescantwin

    Would anyone be pissed if we drafted that MLB Mosely from Alabama? He’s actually cut in the ilk of a young Demeco. A 4 year starter and true senior. Dude has been a leader & captain and looks to be an accomplished 3 down LB. We could have him in line for the next MLB spot and even use him as a rotational OLB this season.

    6’2 240lb ,, 4.6 / 40 ,, 35” vert he might be the answer for the TE coverage

    • GEAGLE

      Yeah….me!!

      • myeaglescantwin

        I feel that impact linebackers make or break a team. I hear you with the value of other players deeper in the draft, but if the brass decides he’s the BPA, i won’t be too upset.

        i worry more about the bama LB’s that never pan out in the league.

  • GEAGLE

    For all those wasting their time on Brandin Cooks, have you missed the 15 BIG WRs we have been showing interest in?

    • peteike

      Someone noted on iggles that CK triple teamed him when they played in college .If so maybe he does love those guys he played against. All these bigs are just a smokescreen haha

      • GEAGLE

        Tom LAwlor: “1 or two big WRs is a smoke screen…10 Big WRs is legit interest”…..doubt Chip Kelly was the one deciding the defensive strategy….what does Triple teamed mean? Doubt they had two CBs and a safety defensive Cooks

        I don’t even think it’s about the WRs,,,I think Chip wants above average size, length and athleticism at every position, and that he will use this draft to start improving our team size across the board

        • peteike

          I know, I wasnt serious. I certainly dont know squat about college players, only what Im learning reading all the comments and articles as we get closer to the draft.

          • GEAGLE

            I hate to have to talk bad about Cooks, because I really really like him….I just have a hard time seeing him as a realistic option for us…and I really hate why he has become so popular. I was high on that kid since October, yet now, because we cut Desean, this kid is all anyone talks about, and I don’t get it
            ,..
            I’m starting to wonder if we don’t even draft a WR before round 4

      I don’t see Clowney dropping to the 5 spot or Oakland not taking him if he’s there…

    Late to the party. Been outta town and haven’t posted in a few days. I’ll get back up to speed to help my street cred (cough Desean cough) with this article from nj.com. I’m learning fast so I have to cite my sources so Tom W doesn’t accuse me of plagiarism:

        I hope he’s right regardless. We need a playmaker (or three) on defense. Our defense was good but we held it together with chewed up gum and glue. I’m preaching to the choir but Barr would be an awesome pick up.

    I would say Im looking forward to seeing Cary Williams against DeSean due to all the fighting, but DeSean is probably going to have a career game against him just from being so much faster.
