Good Jaws Commentary about NO-PHI

Jaws is one of the most knowledgeable level headed commentators IMO...

the whole enchilada...

"The Saints are an extremely well-coached team and they stress playing outstanding team footbal on both sides of the ball. When your offense has a veteran, solid quarterback in Drew Brees, you are starting off the right way. Brees runs his offense in an efficient manner and knows what he is seeing from NFL defenses.

"What New Orleans does offensively is attack with remarkable balance. They have two running backs in Deuce McAllister and Reggie Bush, and they change their personnel and use them well. Sean Payton is doing a good job getting the ball to his playmakers, and that includes Bush. The youngster isn't all that he is going to be, a good thing for the Eagles. But you see signs of just how dynamic he is -- the 65-yard punt return for a touchdown last week is a prime example.

"Payton is familiar with Jim Johnson's defensive schemes and tendencies, having coached against the Eagles while he coached with the Giants and the Cowboys. Jim may have to change a few things here. Sean is a well-prepared coach and he will have his offense prepared.

"The key matchup for the Eagles is the defensive line against the Saints up front. The Eagles have been dominating up front and they'll look to do that again. But, I'm telling you, Sean will do things to negate that pass rush. He'll run the football a lot. He'll get the ball to Bush on quick three-step drops and use him in the open field. Last week, the Eagles teed off on Drew Bledsoe, who held the football to allow his receivers to get into their routes. Brees will get rid of the football.

"Donovan McNabb and Co. go against an aggressive defense that plays faster in the Superdome. It's an incredibly loud place -- when I was there for the Saints-Falcons game a few weeks ago, it was the loudest stadium I had ever encountered (DO THAT AGAIN BABY)-- so Donovan has his work cut out for him. He has to make sure everyone is on the same page as far as the snap count and things like that.

"New Orleans has a good pass rush, particularly off the edges, and the Saints play together. They are in sync. Strong safety Roman Harper is out with a knee injury and that's a blow. I look for the Eagles to try to take advantage of that.

"This Eagles offense has been great through five games. It's explosive and has a lot of dimensions. I love the way Donovan is playing. If they can become accustomed to the noise -- I know they worked on it in the bubble in practice on Friday -- they can strike for some big plays.

"Again, the matchup here is the line of scrimmage. The Eagles have enough weapons down the field to make plays if Donovan has time.

"Special teams are a huge factor. New Orleans has been aided tremendously in two wins -- against Atlanta and Tampa Bay -- because of a blocked punt and fumble recovery for a touchdown against the Falcons and the Bush punt return against the Bucs. The Eagles have been solid so far on teams.

"The emotion factor is important, too. I guarantee you that the Saints will be up for this game. That crowd gets you going. The Eagles are going to try to take New Orleans out of its game early and get a lead and try to make the Saints more one dimensional offensively. They want the Saints to throw the ball, not grind out drives and take time off the clock.

"I do think the Eagles will win, but it sure won't be easy. The Eagles better bring their 'A' game to New Orleans on Sunday."

I agree with you on Jaws, I think he's the best out there.

I agree.
Jaworski is one of the few pundits who does real analysis before he opens his mouth though.
He may be the most level-headed pro football pundit in the national media.

He is one of the few that actually watch game tape and see the ins and outs of each team...every other analyst goes by what the hear on the streets and what they see in the highlights.

He played for the Eagles. I think he may have some bias, although I do agree with most of his analysis.

Good article? just curious, where'd that come from? Did you trascribe his on-camera work? I don't normally see Jaws in the written word?

Nah!
I still think most would pick the Iggles.
It is a safe pick and they have played well.
I think it's a coin toss honestly.
Rmember we weren't expected to win more than 3-6 games all season.

Jaws is the best at analysis in the business. But he is wrong on his pick. That's OK Jaws, nobody's perfect except me. 8)
