The Washington Redskins are playing the Philadelphia Eagles in the season opener and there is still a lot of uncertainty about the Eagles’ offense. Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has been watching Oregon game tapes to prepare for the season opener.
“I’ve watched 23, 24 Oregon films; I watched what they did in preseason,” Haslett told reporters Friday, per Comcast SportsNet Philly. “If they can do anything else, God bless ‘em.”

Oregon ran the ball a lot and Eagles running back LeSean McCoy said it’d be a committee approach in Philadelphia.
“Not only myself, but we’ve got tons of backs who are going to get it done,” McCoy told NFL Media’s Randy Moss.
Most of the Eagles organization is remaining silent on what the offense would look like. Adam Caplan tried to ask Eagles tight end Brent Celek about the offense and he said he “was not at liberty to tell me what they’re going to do, but he said they have not even scratched the surface,” per Caplan.
Haslett did find one thing interesting from the game tape.
“He must have been a heck of a recruiter because he had about 35 wideouts running in and out and they’re all good players,” Haslett said.
