Believe me, I'm as surprised as anyone that Merril Hoge actually makes sense in this video, but the guy hit the nail on the head. When you have a struggling quarterback, or a young quarterback playing against a stingy defense, why don't even try to establish the run at all? Certainly, only having two running backs active doesn't help, especially when one gets hurt and lost for the game and the other is already severely banged up. But again, that's on the coach, too.
Ugh. Who would have guessed the Eagles could be this discouragingly hard to watch? But keep on berating organizations that actually win Super Bowls while you just continue to talk about winning them, Joe Banner. This entire management team makes me sick.
