Why the hell would'nt you give your best player more than 6 touches? Maybe Reid has a timeshare he needs to use during playoff season and wants it to end early.....


Because you only get 3 downs in the NFL and if you don't get a first there are only so many opportunities. Philly isn't exactly moving the ball at will.

Ease up fantasy fanatics. The Eagles have barely had the ball in the first half and haven't had success getting first downs.

Yeah, maybe they haven't been successful because Reid still refuses to run the damn ball. Even with Curtis and Baskett out, Reid is still itching to pass. It's not a secret. The eagles are at their best offensively when they run the ball and use the run to set up their passing game. Washington can be run on if they just commit to it.

And I am an Eagles fan. As an Eagles fan, I am just frustrated.

Exactly Joe. Most on here don't seem to understand that the guys who get 20+ carries are usually on the winning team or on a team that is sustaining long drives. Neither of these teams are doing that.

And Storm Trooper. The Eagles pass the ball 60+% of the time which is more than any other team in the past 10 years. They are at their best when the passing game opens up the run.

Dude, in a 3-0 game, with your playoff life on the line, you get the ball in your play makers hands. 6 rushes and no receptions. Get him open in space, a screen, something.

Welcome to FF! lol Westbrook, Schaub and Marshall are hosing me right now. Who'd of thought I should have played Pennington and Rhodes instead, or was I just being a bone head?

Campbell looks really good back there so far...poised. Eagles need to wake the heck up.
