Why are we not running more double TE, split back, and I-formation sets?   With Vick getting sacked seven times the last game and EVERY team we play blitzing us it would seem to me that we would stack the line of scrimmage with as many players that we  can to help block and THEN to throw a pass from where the blitz came from.   I mean I am not a coach but this would seem logical to me?   We run WAY to much single back set looking to get the ball deep down field.   These plays take time to develop, something we do not have the luxury for right now.

  I really liked it a couple years ago when we used 2 WR 1 TE and  2 backs. Whether it was I formation or split backs it worked. I would like to see alot more of it as well and it wouldn't hurt to start using Havili in the pass and run game more. If  we used Brown and McCoy coming out of the backfield on passing routes it would be hard for LB's to keep up with both of their speed at the same time.

marty thinks that that is exactly what the opponent is thinking he thinks so he will do the other thing which the opponent already knows which marty knows so he will do it anyway which the opponent already knows and marty thinks they will adjust at half time.....get it ?

Idiot Marty knows we have the worst OLine in the League yet almost every 3rd and long he goes 4 or 5 wide formation with an empty backfield.

I sometimes honestly think even Rich Kotite could successfully coach against the Eagles

Kotite ?  The guy who didn't know the correct math to figure out the team should go for a two point conversion ?  That Kotite ???  Yeah, you are probably right.

The Eagles have no offensive line depth, but they're $20 million under the salary cap this year. The priority is clear.
