Eagles | Want RBs to improve in blitz pickup

Philadelphia Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley will ask his group to improve in pass protection, particularly blitz pickups. In order to be effective in such an area, Staley feels players must have the right attitude. "That's one thing I've learned since I played in this league ... You've got to have that want to. You've got to have the will to go up there and meet a guy face to face and punch him in the mouth. I told the running backs last year, 'When you come off that field, make sure you're the one that's doing the whipping and not (being) the (whipped one). You're not the guy that got dropped on your neck.'" Staley also plans to have his backs become better students of the game. He wants players to take what they detect on tape from film study sessions and parlay it onto the field.
