Much has been made of the Dallas Cowboys offensive line this year. They have gotten a lot of press and it has been well deserved. Fran Duffy over at PhiladelphiaEagles.com really did a nice job this week highlighting just how dominant that unit has been this year. This is must read material. Despite, their 2014 performance, color the Eagles Defensive Line unimpressed.
"People don't give us the credit that we deserve," defensive end Fletcher Cox said after Tuesday's training session, "but we put it on tape and we show the world that we can stop the run.
"If anybody that watches football knows what our D-line is known for, it's stopping the run."
"To be honest with you, [I'm] tired of hearing about it," Logan said, noting that the Eagles have faced better offensive lines. "Their O-Line, the only thing they did was add one guy, so it’s not like this year they’re so special. They’ve got to line up and play us. Are we looking forward to it? It’s not a challenge for us or anything. It’s just next game. And it’s on Thanksgiving Day."
"Not at all," Logan said. "They’re the ones that have to live up to the hype of them being the greatest offensive line and this and that. It’s just football. Physical football. The style that I love to play."
I generally do not prefer to hear players talking like this before a big game. I love the confidence, but there is no question that this unit is playing at a much higher level than last year and is the best running attack we've faced this season. But as Bennie Logan would suggest, enough about the Cowboys, let's have a look at what the big fellas are doing right his year.
