Darius Slay Praises Eagles O-Line
“The Giants’ defense is pretty good to me. Dexter Lawrence, #99, them boys are pretty good. We made it look like it was too easy out there. We have one of the best line’s in the game out there. Lane came back; I think he’s one of the best tackles in the game. Honestly, you know what? He is the best tackle in the game.
I don’t know if yall saw the play, but Kelce one arm the dude. Number 71, I know what number he was; he took ya on a ride now. That boy (Kelce) is strong now. That hole parting for Miles like the Red Sea. D-Line is one of the toughest positions, and I see why it is.
They get to rolling over ya, stepping over ya like Mufasa when he was getting stepped on by that moose, when he was falling off the cliff *rest in peace, Mufasa*”
The Eagles have the best offensive line in football, highlighted by eventual Hall of Famers Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson. Johnson, who is currently playing through a torn abductor, allowed zero pressures on 26 pass blocks vs. the Giants on Saturday.
Jeff Stoutland’s crew surrendered just two hurries and two pressures on Hurts vs. the Giants, as all Eagles O-Lineman except Isaac Seumalo posted over an 80.0 pass blog grade, according to PFF. New York did manage to tack on a sack, but it was not credited to any of the Eagles’ linemen.
The Eagles O-Line is an all-around unit, but they’re going to have their work cut out for them on Sunday with a 49ers defense that ranks 1st in PPG allowed and 1st in total yards allowed on the season.
