Into the wild blue yonder...

Air Force's own Chad Hall is the heir apparent to the overrated Lesean McCoy.  More after the jump

Let's go inside the numbers, shall we?

Last night's game proved nothing if it didn't prove that Chad Hall is a legitimate NFL tailback.  In Coach Reid's grind it out style offense, Hall really opened up some eyes with his impressive showing, featuring a heroic 5.5 yards per carry, displaying off-tackle strength and the breakaway speed for which he is rightly feared throughout the NFL.

The McCoy apologists out there will look to his superficially gaudy stats (23 carries for 113 yards).  Sure, this looks impressive on paper, but there are many mitigating factors.  First, more than half of McCoy's rushing yards came in garbage time on ONE RUN of 62 yards.  If you subtract the 62 yard run from his misleading total, you have 22 carries for a very pedestrian 51 yards.  This Steve Bartowski-esque 2.31 yards per carry is completely unacceptable and it seems as if Coach Reid has a tailback controversy on his hands.

Consider, friends, an alternative scenario in which shifty speedster Hall had received the lion's share of the carries over the undeserving McCoy.  5.5 yards per carry x 23 carries yields 127 yards, 14 more than Lesean unjustly garnered in the effort.

If the 2011 Eagles are indeed to turn it around, the only reasonable option is Chad Hall.

God Bless America.
