How will the Eagles survive with Kevin Curtis sidelined? Simple, Jeff Garcia.
That's right, time for the Eagles to go all Jeff Garcia on us. Time for the Eagles to go back to a balanced offensive attack. Possibily even favoring the running game. Even with a healthy McNabb, the strength of this offense is the running game. Westbrook, Buckhalter, Booker, and even our new FB Hunt.
Westbrook 4.8 yards per carry, Buckhalter 5.0 yards per carry, and Booker 4.5 yards per carry in 2007. Impressive numbers that need to be dupolicated in 2008.
Remember when McNabb went down in 2006 and we all thought the season was lost. Well it wasn't. And if it wasn't for a Scott Young false start penalty who knows how far the Eagles would have gone. It wasn't Garcia being a better QB than McNabb that made the offense go. It was Andy and Marty finally balancing their offensive philosophy.
I love the optimism of Andy saying that the current group of WRs is fine and no additions are needed. No need to bad mouth your own players. Heck, the Curtis injury could even turn out to be a blessing by getting Jackson on the field earlier and more often. But, why not go with a sure thing and work the running game.
Cash in on the Westrbook investment. Grind out one more year with Buckhalter. See what Booker can do on a a decent team. So Andy, just say no the pass...please!
