One thing I appreciate about Andy Reid: He scouts himself really pretty well.
Turning over the gameday playcalling to Marty has given the Eagles a real lift on offense.
Against the Ravens my wife kept asking, "Why the heck is every pass going deep?" At the time I thought that and incredibly insightful comment - since the WCO is all about rhythm passing. Now with Marty making the play calls the Bird's O once again is about rhythm passing. The thing about this game: the Eagles were able to get a lead and run the clock.
They were able to run the clock because they were able to run the football. I don't know what was going on in the first quarter, but even though they had something like 6 called running plays for -6 yards, the Eagles stuck with the run. Had Andy been calling the plays, we'd've probably seen a couple more pass attempts. Marty stuck with the running game and it paid dividends. With regard to my last 2 posts, I stand corrected. Well done Marty.
