After watching the last two games I have to say I am THRILLED with the offensive game plans.
The screens, short passes, the utilization of the tight end and oh yeah--the running game !
It was AWESOME to see the Eagles pound it instead of constantly going for the long pass and getting Vick hammered. And by the way the "short" passes on THIS team are deadly because Vick is super accurate and with guys like Mccoy, Jackson, Avant, Maclin and Celek running for large chunks of yards after the catch. I'll take it over the 70 yard bombs anyday. I am sure the defense would rather see a 7 minute drive over a 45 second one any day of the week.
I hope this inspires the coachig staff to recognize that they CAN beat a good team without bullshit trick plays, bullshit wildcat plays and just line up and beat the fuck out of the guy in front of you. The eagles have the personnel to get this done, hopefully this style of play will become the norm. Last years Redskins game on Mnf and the giants comeback game was great and all, but that doesnt work consistently and when it doesnt work its a disaster for the defense because its all quick 3 and outs. Run the ball, control the clock and the defense is fresh. This is the type of play that will win us playoff games, the "boom or bust", "chuck and duck" way NEVER works in the playoffs.
