Good Andy or Bad Andy?

If you take a quick look at the Vikings' defensive stats you will see that they are ranked number 1 against the run. The Vikings allow only 76 yards a game on the ground.

So as we await next Sunday's game, one of the big questions this week will be if Andy Reid abandons the balanced offensive attack in favor of his pass happy attack. I hope not.

The Eagles won 4 of their last 5 games because they used balance. They lost the Redskins' game because the balance was missing.

To help sway Andy towards balance, he can't forget that the Vikings might again be without Pro Bowl defensive tackle Pat Williams on Sunday. No Pat Williams, means more opportunities to double team Kevin Williams.

And just look to the Giants' game yesterday to see how vulnerable the Vikings might now be against the run. Without Brandon Jacobs, the G-Men still rushed for 135 yards against Minnesota.

Westbrook can beat them on the edges. However having Vikings passing D ranked in the bottom half will entice Reid to throw a hell out of more balls. I would sit out Eckel and activate Book to split him out wide opposite to Westbrook and stick buck in the middle. also Wildcat will work against Vikes. If Allen gets chip they can chase nobody as fast as DJ.
