Eagles Prepare for the Dallas Blitz
Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, as his last name suggests, is going to blitz the opposing offense. Just as his father, Buddy, did for years as a coordinator and as a head coach, and just as his brother, Rex, did and does as a coordinator and head coach, Rob sends as many as five and six defenders at a time after the quarterback.
“Yeah, he will blitz,” Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said. “He’ll move people around. He’ll move people over in unusual ways which are sort of uncommon. You see some of it from other teams, but he does it a little bit more.”
The Eagles (2-4) will play host to the Cowboys (3-3) on Sunday night.
