If you are not familiar with the Eagles Game Plan and Eagle Eye in the Sky programs at the Eagles’ official team site, there are a number of film analysis pieces their crew put together leading up to Sunday’s game with the Lions. We highly recommend checking all of them out. First up, Greg Cosell was on their full length video program (direct link here in case the embed is not loading for you) looking at the incorporation of new tight end talent into the Lions’ offense:

In another part of the program, Cosell looked at the ways that Detroit uses movable pieces on defense to present multiple looks in the front. In it, they feature Trey Flowers and Jahlani Tavai, showing different alignments and assignments for each player from Week 1 and Week 2. Cosell and Fran Duffy (@duffy3) also posted audio from the Eagle Eye in the Sky podcast with more film material. If you know our Pride of Detroit crew then you know we can’t get enough of this stuff:

Duffy’s twitter feed is also chock full of individual tweets on Lions opposition film study from yesterday, and all of them are excellent. Dive into his feed and soak it all in:

And now, on to the rest of today’s Notes:

  • You want more film analysis? You want more Dan Orlovsky (@danorlovsky7)? We do, too!

  • Chris Burke at The Athletic wrote a piece about Kenny Golladay’s “quiet” emergence as the top receiver on the Detroit offense (subscription required).

  • The Detroit Free Press’ Dave Birkett sat down with Chris Spielman, who will be doing Sunday’s broadcast of the Lions against the Eagles, to discuss a range of topics:

  • Sad news from the Columbus Dispatch by way of Jeff Risdon at the Lions Wire: we lost former Lions running back Hopalong Cassady at the age of 85 this morning.

  • If you haven’t had enough of the Stafford to Golladay touchdown on the double post, here is another dose of it from NFL Films’ Turning Point:

  • For the people complaining that even they could make the throws Stafford misses on, now they have a chance to prove it FOR CASH MONIES!
