Telling Andy Reid to run the ball more is like telling him he needs to lose a few pounds. Everybody knows it, he'd probably agree he needs to do it, but he just never does it.
It's right after "spend something higher than a 4th round pick on a linebacker" and "learn how to better manage that pesky game clock" on his to-do list.
I just noticed the Redskins have the 3rd best defense against the pass, and the 17th best against the run. I wonder if that has anything to do with it.
EDIT: After RTFA, I see that yes, it does.
"Points come out of the passing game." -R. Jaworski
"That's right, Sal!" -Jaws
"We'll be fine." -A. Reid
"DVOA loves Philadelphia!" (soon)
Shady McCoy has more rushing 1st downs than anyone else in the league, by far.
If the Eagles actually ran the ball, imagine how much more he'd have!!
In which the FO staff tries to make sense of whatever the hell the Titans are doing.
