 The Eagles are moving on from their Week 3 win over the Colts and are now setting their sites on the Titans. Coordinators Jim Schwartz and Mike Groh spoke to the media on Tuesday about everything from the roughing the passer penalties to how they are preparing for the Titans.Here’s what the defensive and offensive coordinators had to say:Jim SchwartzOn the roughing the passer penaltiesOne of the big storylines the past few weeks have been the new rules about hitting the quarterback Womens Brandon Graham Jersey , resulting in significantly more — and questionable — roughing the passer penalties. Schwartz was asked how he coaches his players to avoid those flags, and the DC admitted it’s challenging.He talked about the small target area that defenders have to work with for a legal hit, and how it’s difficult for these big guys to avoid a call for landing on a guy with their body weight. Schwartz pointed out that it becomes even more complicated with the influx of scrambling quarterbacks, with defenders trying to make the tackle but then to also be careful not to let their weight fall on the QB during the hit.Schwartz said it’s not their job to make the rules, but it’s on them to figure out a way around them. He said there are ways to work around it, and his players can try and spin out of the tackle, but ultimately you’re still going to have those called sometimes because it’s not always possible to avoid landing with their full weight.He did point out that as the NFL tries to make things safer for the quarterback, the result is seeing more mobile quarterbacks, which in turn makes it more difficult because they you’re trying to tackle them like running backs. Schwartz noted that when a quarterback is in the pocket, it’s a little easier for the defender to try and control the action, but on the run it’s more challenging.When asked if he thought the rule should be changed, Schwartz quipped, “Well yeah, I’d like to revamp a lot of rules.”And after listing several standard calls he wished would be different, he acknowledged it’s not on the coaches to make the rules or to write the rule book, but it is their job to do their best to follow the rules as they are laid out.He admitted it’s a tough job to be officiating these rules too, and it’s difficult for them to keep up with Olympic speed running down the field. Schwartz said the whole game of football is built on things that are difficult and that’s just how it is.On defensive schemeSchwartz was asked about the defense regularly being more dominant in the second half, but the defensive coordinator was quick to shoot down any thoughts about making halftime adjustments. He pointed out that they adjust after every series, and being better in the second half probably has more to do with having smart players who rarely make the same mistake twice.He was also asked about the team’s red zone efficiency and it being emphasized in practice. Schwartz noted that there isn’t anything special they do to prepare Womens Corey Graham Jersey , but that they include different looks during practice.He specifically pointed out being impressed with the team’s temperament when the ball gets close to the endzone — the players don’t panic, and get the job done.Schwartz was also asked about Jalen Mills and the pass interference calls against him on Sunday, but the DC noted that there is some things they can coach up. Ultimately though, Mills’ had a great game — particularly in the red zone — and had much better technique than he had against the Bucs in Week 2.He also went into detail about the development of Derek Barnett:A lot has been made this week about the number of snaps Fletcher Cox was lining up for, but Schwartz shot that down as anything other than circumstance. He pointed to seeing fewer snaps overall on defense through the first three games, and that it could be an issue in the long term but for now, it’s not something he or the coaches are concerned with.On Titans prepSchwartz talked about how prepping for a mobile quarterback like Marcus Mariota was more challenging, and how those are the types of guys you have to play like running backs. He talked about how it forces the defense to play clean, and to really be disciplined in the pass rush because you can’t just concentrate on one thing.He was asked about facing the run-heavy offense by the Titans, but Schwartz quipped that a run-heavy offense used to be 45 rushes a game, and now you’re talking 25-30. He said it’s no different in how they’d prepare for any other offense, and that it’s their job to stop whatever scheme the Titans are throwing at them.On injuresHe said he’s leave the injury updates to Doug Pederson, particularly in reference to Rodney McLeod, but that they have a Plan B for every player in case they are aren’t able to play.Mike GrohOn Carson Wentz’s performanceGroh finally had his QB1 back last Sunday, and the OC said he looked like the same old Carson. He pointed out that they expected a lot from him in his first game back, but they had seen him in practice and weren’t concerned with him being full-go.He didn’t think the two turnovers in the red zone were caused by any kind of rust for the quarterback. Groh noted that Wentz was locked in to Zach Ertz on the first pick, and that the Colts’ linebacker just got the read on him. The second was another where Wentz saw a lane to Ertz that ended up being deflected. Obviously not ideal, but something Groh said they can clean up.Groh doesn’t anticipate ramping up the number of quarterback rushes or the workload that Wentz will take on in the coming weeks, and that he isn’t limited and they didn’t play call like he was against the Colts.He was asked if the five sacks were a result of Wentz holding on to the ball too long — something mentioned as a factor by Pederson on Monday — but Groh didn’t pinpoint the quarterback specifically.He also noted that the team does have a target completion rate for their quarterbacks — about 70% — but that it’s difficult to stick to a certain number when there are situational factors that might mean more.On the tight ends and receiversGroh lauded rookie Dallas Goedert’s blocking in last Sunday’s game , noting that he was a big factor in some of the running success they had, including some combination blocks with tackles.He also talked about Josh Perkins, and while he’s fought through some injuries that made it tough for the team to evaluate his performance pre-season, they had evaluated him enough in Atlanta to know that they could utilize him right away. Not only on offense as a big bodied receiver, but also on special teams.The OC talked about Jordan Matthews and lauded him for being able to come in and in only three days get out onto the field and be productive. He pointed out that the familiarity definitely helps and they are excited to have him. The coaches will continue to incorporate him into their game planning.On Titans prepGroh was asked about Tennessee’s defense stifling the Jaguars in Week 3 to just six points, and how they plan to counter their attack. He pointed out that it’s challenging when going up against a veteran-filled group and they’ve got multiple fronts and multiple coverages that they use.He also talked about Titans CB Malcolm Butler, and how he’s the type of defender that’s going to get right up on your nose and be very physical at the line of scrimmage. Groh also talked about Butler being a little more motivated in this outing having missed the teams last meetup.D.J. Alexander: 6 things to know about the Eagles’ new special teams ace The Philadelphia Eagles made a successful waiver wire claim earlier this week when they were awarded linebacker D.J. Alexander. In order to better get know the Eagles’ new special teams ace, I reached out to SB Nation writers from his former two teams: the Chiefs and the Seahawks. Thanks to Arrowhead Pride and Field Gulls for the insight they provided. CHIEFS PERSPECTIVE(Answers by Pete Sweeney)1 - Can you sum up Alexander’s Chiefs career?John Dorsey and the Kansas City Chiefs selected DJ Alexander with a compensatory pick in the fifth round of the 2015 draft, with the idea that Alexander could play special teams and perhaps develop into a good inside linebacker (The Chiefs have done this with a number of rookies--Daniel Sorensen, Albert Wilson and Ben Niemann all come to mind). Part one of the idea hit, and Alexander actually made a Pro Bowl as a special-teamer, replacing Matt Slater when the Patriots made the Super Bowl in the 2016-17 playoffs. Alexander finished his Chiefs career with 701 snaps on special teams but only 57 defensive snaps.2 - Why did the Chiefs trade Alexander last year?The Chiefs traded Alexander in what I figured to be a chance-of-scenery move. It hadn’t worked out in Seattle for LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, the return for Alexander. John Dorsey must have liked Pierre-Louis’ ceiling a bit better. On a side note, Pierre-Louis is no longer a Chief.3 - What are Alexander’s strengths and weaknesses?Alexander’s strengths as a Chief were speed and explosiveness to go along with his willingness to play on all of the Chiefs’ special teams units. For whatever reason, Alexander could never carve out a role as an inside linebacker despite the age and decline of Derrick Johnson and the revolving door next to him. A quick glance at his Seattle 2017 snap counts tell me more of the same story. For what its worth, Doug Pederson and Eagles defensive quality/assistant secondary coach Dino Vasso were on the Chiefs staff that selected Alexander.4 - Anything to know about Alexander off the field?Despite his struggles making a name on defense, Alexander showed good character during his time in Kansas City. Speaking with him as a reporter, Alexander was always respectful.SEAHAWKS PERSPECTIVE(Answers by Alistair Corp and Mookie Alexander [no relation], respectively)5 - What can you tell me about Alexander’s Seahawks career?The Seahawks traded for him for his value on special teams. He was coming off a Pro Bowl season on ST; when they acquired him Womens Jake Elliott Jersey , Pete Carroll called him ‘a ridiculous special teams player.’ Brock Coyle had left in FA, and he was a big part of that unit. Since Bobby Wagner was drafted in 2012, the backup MLB has been a key teamer, first with Heath Farewell, and Brock Coyle after him. They signed Terence Garvin, another good special teamer, in FA, but he was an OLB. Alexander figured to be the next in that line of reserve MLB/ST.We really only saw him on special teams, I think he played less than 20 snaps on defense all year. Not that ‘backers generally stand out on coverage units, since they’re kind of restricted to the middle of the field and don’t make the flashy plays, but we didn’t see enough to give specific strengths or weaknesses. At the risk of repeating the same thing over and over, his strength really is special teams. He’ll play on every unit and be reliable, he isn’t going to abandon his lane or cheat inside/out.6 - As an expert on Alexanders, what should I know about this one?DJ Alexander’s Seahawks career wasn’t memorable in any way. Seattle traded for him (sending Kevin Pierre-Louis to the Chiefs) for linebacker depth and to help with Special Teams. At the time of the trade he was a year removed from being a Special Teams Pro Bowler. Really his strengths are supposed to be tackling abilities in kick and punt coverage, and he also had a punt block last year against the Giants. Can’t really comment on his weaknesses seeing as he only had 20 defensive snaps last year, so his actual abilities at linebacker are a complete unknown to me. The Eagles are known for great ST, so Alexander should be a good fit there if he’s brought over specifically for that. (Click here to watch Alexander block a punt against the Raiders in 2016.)
