The Mike’s cool. But you know what’s really cool? The Jack.
That’s the name the Eagles have given the position Connor Barwin has been playing for the Eagles as of late because he’s pretty much doing it all on the defensive side of the ball.
CSN’s Reuben Frank has a nice article on Barwin today that takes a look at his versatility.
“Connor makes the scheme go,” Davis said. “I move him around multiple spots. He’s inside, on the outside, on the right, outside on the left, he’s over guard. We move him, and we have different techniques we use with him and he’s great with picking them up.
“If I need an edge set on one side or a certain reroute or chip, Connor is the guy we go to. He wears a lot of hats and doesn’t get as many rushes as he would like but does a lot of things for the defense that it’s unselfish on his part.
Barwin goes on to talk about just how different Billy Davis’ system is from what he did in Houston and some of his teammates talk about how Connor could probably even play tight end if they needed him too. The Renaissance Man is versatile and well-rounded both on and off the field.
And he now has the badass name of Jackbacker.
