A Look at Offensive Line Struggles

Nick Foles' two interceptions Friday night in Chicago make more sense with detailed analysis.

Andrew Kulp of CSN Philly's 700 Level sheds some serious light on Nick Foles' flawed performance, casting plenty of blame on the offensive line.

Foles gets blame for a few forced throws, but there's much to be said for Evan Mathis getting beaten inside, Todd Herremans and Allen Barbre whiffing on blocks, and other costly miscues.

A sample from the article:

Final series for the starters, and they’re working against Chicago’s backups. Darren Sproles in now for Shady, and right guard Todd Herremans is going to whiff on the pull block here on No. 52, linebacker Khaseem Greene, which is essentially the most important block on the play. Not hard to envision how this play will end. Fortunately, a facemask penalty gives the Birds a fresh set, but there’s nothing positive to take away from the tape.

The Bears' defensive line is completely revamped after a poor 2013 from their D as a whole, so if there's a positive in there, the poor outing showed Chip Kelly and company where they need to improve, and what they need to prepare for.
