To be clear: The Redskins are REALLY GOOD at stopping the run

Can everyone who posts about the running game please just acknowledge that point?  You don't have to say the Eagles have a great running game, they don't.  But please before carping about how poor the run looked last night, just write something like "I know the Skins have a top 5 run defense, but..."  Just add to your credibility, ok?

Last night, other than the big DJax run, we were held to 55 yards on 26 carries, which is terrible.  However we ran quite a bit in the 2nd half, it seemed like less because we didn't run that well.  Again, with the opponent expecting the run (large lead) and being really, really good against the run (#3 DVOA), it's ain't realy shocking that we didn't have much success.
