Eagles have...one running play they like?
|The run: a rarity in Eagles playbook.|
Collinsworth noted the Eagles ran the same running play four straight times on the third quarter drive that stalled around the goal line. Later Reid said he probably should have handed the ball to rookie Bryce Brown in goal-to-goal, for he had the fresher legs as opposed to Shady McCoy, whose legwork got the Eagles there.
Why would the Eagles run the same running play so many times in a row? (It didn't work the last two plays.)
The playbook doesn't have many running plays. Apparently only one the Eagles really like. If the Eagles pass the ball 65 percent of the time figure at least 65 percent of their playbook is passes. At least. The number is probably more like 85 percent. We're on this. Stay tuned.
