When your quarterback or any player is struggling for that matter, it’s always best for coaches to try to simplify things.

So it isn’t a coincidence that Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford has had his best two games of the season the past two weeks, because the Eagles simplified the playbook, Matt Lombardo of NJ Advance Media reports.

“In the past couple of weeks we’ve kind of found what we’re good at,” Bradford said. “Some of the pass concept and things that I’m comfortable with and we’re comfortable with as an offense. We’ve just kind of repped those and we’re going to go out there and run those plays on Sundays.

“I think maybe for awhile it was just finding what it is that this offense, this year, what we’re good at and what we’re going to attack people with.

“It was just about sitting down, going through and figuring out what I’m comfortable with and what we’re comfortable with this group. What have we gained yards on, what have we not.

“I think the biggest thing for me has been my ability to move in the pocket and getting to the backside of some progressions, getting to the second, third or fourth guy. I’m much more comfortable doing that now than I was earlier in the season.”

This season, Bradford has passed for 2,061 yards, 10 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, including four in the end zone while completing 62.9 percent of his passes.

Over the past three games Bradford has completed 65 percent of his passes for 1,113 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions.
