When Jeff Stoutland was hired away from Alabama to be the Eagles' offensive line coach, Alabama left tackle Cyrus Kouandijo joked with him, "What are you going to do, show Jason Peters the Jason Peters film?"

Stoutland has been showing film of Jason Peters to his college players for years. He showed film of Peters at Alabama, and in previous coaching stints at Miami and Michigan State. "Ask any of the players I coached," said Stoutland, "I teach the left tackle off of what (Peters) did. When I first came here, I was like, alright, I’m coaching NFL players. Jason Peters. I’ve been studying his film since he entered the league with the Buffalo Bills in his rookie year. I coached my players in college off of his pro film. I got Buffalo Bills film in my office filled with Jason Peters.”

When asked if there were any other players Stoutland liked to show film of, he noted another outstanding offensive lineman. "Before Jason, (former 11x Pro Bowler and Hall of Fame Cincinnati Bengals OT) Anthony Munoz was a guy I have a lot of video of," said Stoutland.

That's pretty impressive company.
