Everyone knows by now that Andy Reid's philosiphy is this: Big Play, Big Play, Big Play!
For ten years we were forced to watch Donovan McNabb drop back to pass and the ball drive into the dirt. From that first pass of the game we all could see that this would be an off-game for D-Mac. Everyone could see this except for Andy.
Us fans were forced to sit helplessly as pass after pass was called and defenses teed off because of no run-threat. We were lucky to have Brian Westbrook be one of the most dangerous running backs in all of football for nearly a decade, and now Lesean McCoy and his hefty 5.3 YPC.
But the question remains: Will he ever reach his true potential when touching the ball 10-12 times a game? Take a look at the NFC and AFC championship games and you saw four teams that were built for January football. Big, tough teams that force defenses to play the run, and stick with that philosophy even when it is not successful.
Philadelphia will forever be starved of a tough, blue-collar team as long as Andy is calling the shots. A 60-40 pass-run ratio just does not cut it.
