Bill Davis Proving Himself As Defensive Coordinator Of Philadelphia Eagles
Since the day he was hired to become the defensive coordinator of the Philadelphia Eagles, Bill Davis has been under the microscope. His previous track record, after stops in San Francisco and Arizona, was no indication as to why Chip Kelly and the Eagles would hire Davis over other available candidates. Somehow, however, he was on Kelly’s radar and made a good enough impression to be given the job.
After Week 1, in which the entire team looked the part, the road was a bit bumpy. However, after spending a few weeks getting their feet under them and truly understanding what the new 3-4 system was about, the Philadelphia defense has really come into their own, and Davis is the man spearheading the movement. Not only has he proven that he was a good hire, he’s proving it with an inexperienced group. Davis has really made a statement about giving the young guys a shot, and the decision is making him that much more impressive. He’s building for the future, yet still succeeding in the present.
The performance of the defense lately is making Davis seem a genius. Although they are more of a bend and not break defense, they have been able to hold their last seven opponents to 21 points or less. They have been a story of success during a season when the Eagles are accomplishing things that no one expected. The offense was supposed to be the main attraction, but it seems that under Davis, the defense it stealing the show.
Only time will tell if the Eagles can continue this run long enough to win the division and make the playoffs, but if they do, much of the credit should be thrown the way of Davis, who has made defense in Philadelphia alive once again.
