Eagles Can’t Run, Can’t Beat Sorry *** Raiders

Eagles Coach Andy Reid Refuses To Run The Ball

Eagles Coach Andy Reid Refuses To Run The Ball

I had a feeling I should have benched McNabb on my fantasy team yesterday. You know why? Because the Eagles tend to play down to the competition on the road and that cost me yesterday. So what, that’s just fantasy…

The reality is that the Eagles should have pounded the Raiders. At some point in Big Red’s (aka Andy Reid) tenure as head coach, they have to commit to running the football. The Raiders were last in the NFL in run defense and the Eagles run the ball just 14 times. I’ve been saying it for years.

The Eagles don’t have (and refuse to get) a physical running back. Brian Westbrook is great at what he does, but he isn’t going to punish a defense. I cannot help but wonder how good this team would be if we had a stud in the backfield.

At least the Redskins are on the schedule next week.
