It's OK to keep feeding the ball to your best football players, something fast becoming a habit with the Eagles judging by last night's divisional game with the Redskins. Instead of riding running back Brian Westbrook and to a lesser extent wide receivers Kevin Curtis and Jason Avant, their deadliest weapons, the Eagles for some reason figure they should spread the ball around to their second tier players. That list includes Correll Buckhalter, Hank Baskett, Reggie Brown and Greg Lewis. Whatever happened to run it until they stop it? Seriously now, there's a reason Westbrook annually leads the Eagles in touchdowns.

I agree 100%. Westbrook averaged 5.6 yards per carry last week and Reid/Mornhinweg threw the ball 46 times with a QB who is about 90 percent and and receivers who were not always open. If Westbrook had 30 carries (not touches) last week, the Eagles would have won the game.
