I remember watching Carolina with the ball early and seeing DRC playing about 10 yards off the line of scrimmage, thinking to myself, "Here comes a slant/crossing pattern for 10 or 15 yards." Wouldn't you know it, that's exactly what Cam Newton apparently thought as well.
I really miss bump-n-run and press coverage. I still think our front seven is the best we've had in a while for run stopping, and the secondary ought to be playing in-your-face.
I heard the leftover fans trying to rally up our defense on third downs, but I don't remember seeing anyone on defense trying to fire up the squad. It looked like everyone was on their own, trying to make it through another day at work. It's been a while since I've seen the Eagles play defense as a team.
I'll be a fan as long as there remains the Philadelphia Eagles. I believe we need a new offensive coordinator and a defensive coordinator.
I loved seeing Andy go to the run so much last night. I was fired up, the kids were getting nervous at my shouting, fist pumps, and awkward dances. But I soon realized I was faced with something I don't remember ever seeing; Andy Ried GIVING UP ON THE PASSING GAME!
I can almost taste it, with McCoy and Brown, having two 1,000 yard rushers next year. A deadly play-action passing game, an offense that actually can wear down a defense AND the clock. I can almost imagine it, excellent clock/game management. It smells like the best way to win games is by keeping OUR defense off of the field for a long time. Yes, it smells like a "Trent Dilfer managing the Ravens to the Super Bowl" season is on our horizon.
