Eagles Jenkins excels despite busy season with protests, new baby

” otherwise known as media day. It’s going to be late — the Patriots at 8:10 p.m. and the Eagles at 10 p.m. — but that’s when all the players, coaches,The big event on Monday will be “Super Bowl Opening Night, and some team executives will be available to reporters for an hour in a made-for-TV event that’s become as well known for some outrageous questions and costumes as for the insight from the teams. 

Super Bowl week can be a circus for the teams, they’ll likely be impressed by where the Golden Gophers practice. The university just built a $166 million athletic village,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/cameron-sutton-jersey-cheap]Womens Cameron Sutton Jersey[/url], but there is still work to be done. The Eagles will practice at the University of Minnesota’s facility this week. The Patriots will practice at the Minnesota Vikings’ facility. Although the Eagles are used to the NovaCare Complex, which includes a full-length indoor field. That’s better than the Eagles’ facility in Philadelphia, which is only 80 yards.

 I’ve studied what makes some teams thrive and what makes others falter. Because talent goes only so far,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/james-conner-jersey-cheap]Womens James Conner Jersey[/url],Inside and outside of sports, it’s important to evaluate a team’s structure and mindset to determine its true strength.

Having the ability to adapt to adverse or unpredictable situations plays a big role. So do “collective efficacy” – a team’s shared belief that it can attain a given goal – and “interdependence,” whether a team believes each member is valuable.

By considering these three latent team characteristics, we can dig deeper into how the Eagles and Patriots made it to Super Bowl LII.

In a 2012 study,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/]Womens Joshua Dobbs Jersey[/url], I charged four groups of students with solving a murder mystery.

 and that they would need to rely on everyone’s expertise to solve the mystery. Unsurprisingly,Some groups were told that each member had a distinct role, these groups did the best.

Interestingly,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/artie-burns-jersey-cheap]Womens Artie Burns Jersey[/url], on these teams, groups whose members each had useful information – but weren’t told that the information each possessed was necessary for the team to perform well – did the worst. This happened because, individual members thought they could solve the mystery on their own.

How might this translate to football? Well, most teams are equally motivated to win the Super Bowl. But none likely understand the role and abilities of each player – and the need to coordinate – better than the Patriots. This is because head coach Bill Belichick’s system is designed to emphasize specific roles linked to specific abilities.

For example,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/javon-hargrave-jersey-cheap]Womens Javon Hargrave Jersey[/url], Belichick traded for undersized wide receiver Wes Welker. On his previous team, the Dolphins, in 2007, he had been an average player. But Belichick had a role in mind for Welker, bringing him to New England with the specific purpose of playing in the slot.

Importantly, Welker didn’t have to outrun and outjump the opposing team’s biggest, fastest defensive backs. He just had to do one thing well: Give quarterback Tom Brady a short, in Belichik’s system, underneath passing option. Welker ended up thriving; his production exploded, and he redefined a position now occupied by Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola.

This type of system serves two functions. First, weaknesses and responsibilities. It creates what management scholars would refer to as a “transactive memory system” – a “group mind” where each team member knows what each other one is good at. This naturally builds interdependence by identifying the specific skills each player needs to contribute to the team. Second, [url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/]Authentic Joshua Dobbs Jersey[/url],it allows the players and coaches to understand each player’s strengths, it makes it easy to adapt to adversity, setting up a dynamic where players can easily be plugged into roles to replace teammates lost to injury.

Then there’s the Patriots’ history of winning. Since 2001, eight conference championship games and five Super Bowls. If you’re on the Patriots, they’ve won 15 division titles, you’re probably pretty confident you can win, regardless of the score or situation.

It’s one thing to tell the media you will win. It’s quite another to truly believe it, even when you’re down three touchdowns.

Indeed, in turn, the greatest predictor of being confident in your ability to win in the future is having won in the past. Confidence in your ability, has been shown to predict performance in a variety of situations, from sports arenas to the classroom to the workplace.

The Eagles don’t have the Patriots’ role-based culture and history of success. But they were nonetheless able to absorb the loss of star quarterback Carson Wentz, and now find themselves one game away from dethroning the Patriots.

 so his salary cap hit is only US$7.25 million,It probably helped that Carson Wentz is playing on his rookie contract, or around 4 percent of the team’s $167 million salary cap. Because the Eagles devoted a small amount of money to their quarterback – a position that usually commands the highest salaries – they were able to invest their resources in other positions.

Having a lot of resources invested in one player – even if he is a star – can be risky.

In a 2016 paper, and the massive 10-year contract extension they awarded him in 2007. In this case, the Yankees overestimated Rodriguez’s longevity, [url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/javon-hargrave-jersey-cheap]Authentic Javon Hargrave Jerse[/url], I explore the New York Yankees’ 2004 acquisition of superstar Alex Rodriguez, and his performance started to falter as he aged. But perhaps more importantly,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/james-conner-jersey-cheap]Authentic James Conner Jersey[/url], they underestimated the signal it sent to give a single player like Rodriguez – who failed to emerge as a respected team leader – the position of the organization’s most highly paid employee.

 Wentz’s contract allowed the Eagles to distribute their wealth more evenly. They were able to acquire more players to create roster depth,On the other hand, while sending a broader signal about equity within the organization.

Before the season,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/sean-davis-jersey-cheap]Authentic Sean Davis Jersey[/url], $11 million deal. They also signed free agent wideouts Alshon Jeffrey and Torrey Smith. At running back, the team was able to sign Wentz’s backup, to a two-year, Nick Foles,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/artie-burns-jersey-cheap]Authentic Artie Burns Jersey[/url],inexpensive rookie Corey Clement was joined by free agent LeGarrett Blount and Jay Ajayi, who was acquired in a midseason trade.

That’s not to say losing Wentz was easy for the team to overcome. Wentz had thrown for over 3,000 yards and an Eagles record 33 touchdowns before he went down. His teammates relied on him. They were confident in him and knew what he was capable of.

In a 2014 study of basketball teams,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/sean-davis-jersey-cheap]Womens Sean Davis Jersey[/url], but also had more plays drawn up on their behalf. For this reason, I was able to show that players who gained the confidence of their teammates not only got the ball more, everyone around them ended up contributing less.

So when there’s a loss on the scale of Carson Wentz, there’s a struggle to figure out who is going to get the ball. But it also creates opportunities for players with smaller roles to step up.

 the performance of the Eagles’ defense surged: The unit allowed only 33 points in their last four games. The offensive line has also played superbly,[url=http://www.steelerscheapauthenticstore.com/bud-dupree-jersey-cheap]Authentic Bud Dupree Jersey[/url],After Wentz went down, while the running backs boosted their production.

This likely occurred because when high-performing team members go down, in lieu of an injury to a key member of a team, others feel more responsible for the team’s performance. Researchers have been able to show that, other players tend to improve their focus and effort.

Still, the Patriots, despite their sound system, the Giants were able to disrupt Brady’s timing, dominate the offensive line and keep Brady off the field with a potent running game. Despite their many advantages, the Patriots are probably more reliant on Tom Brady than the Eagles are on any one player. In both of the Patriots’ most recent Super Bowl losses, in this sense, are more vulnerable.

The Eagles have shown the moment of the Super Bowl isn't too big for them. That won't change as the media commitments wrap up and the practice intensifies for the game.
