Continuing the series we'll do a quick recap of the Eagles bread and butter running play. The inside zone. The Eagles practice this play exhaustively and it's featured extensively in their offensive attack every week. Last year, my colleague David, wrote a really nice piece on the inside zone. Be sure to go back and check it out here. I certainly won't go into that level of detail but David has certainly laid the ground work for the next couple of posts where we'll talk about execution of the inside zone, mistakes running the scheme, some tricks defenses used in 2014 to defend it, and most importantly how Chip adjusted in response to the wrinkles opposing teams threw at us.
Let's start looking at 3 plays that perfectly illustrate how the inside zone is supposed to work. When executed properly against a favorable defensive front, it's a beautiful thing to watch.
