Everything Old is New Again—A-Gap Pressure Look with Defensive Tackles

By John Turney

The Seahawks beat the Eagles tonight in a fine game. One thing of note was a front the Eagles used to get their only sack. Here it is:
Eagles with both defensive tackles in the A-Gaps or both shading the center
It was interesting because it brought to memory the 1970 Eagles (and others) doing the same thing back in the day. Here is a screenshot of that:

Jets align with both DTs in A-Gaps. 1979
It was nice seeing it, it's not something we see often.
