    Washington needs to start faking injuries to slow down the eagles offense

    Which makes me wonder why we have turned completely against it.

    I think they already are. Two linemen with cramps in the first half?

    Vick isn't going to make it through the season getting hit every week as much as he's getting hit tonight, bro.

    Most of the big hits were due to Vick not recognizing the blitz or blocking failures. That will hurt a QB in any offense.

    Well Philly has some guys playing on the other side too. This team looks pretty good.

    It will last about as long as the Run N Shoot.

    Agreed, I'd say he makes it to week 6 at most before a rib injury or concussion.

    Philly did almost nothing in the second half and almost allowed Washington to come back. Philly only had the ball in the second half for about 12 minutes.

    It's one of the problems with these non-traditional offenses like the run and shoot, fun and gun and spread. Very few teams using these offenses have been able to run time off the clock effectively and keep their own defenses off the field and from getting worn out late in games.

    Most of the loses UF had during the Spurrier era were because our offense couldn't run the ball effectively late in games.

    I'm not saying somebody won't come up with a unique offense that can be effective in the NFL, that's not just going to light up the scoreboard, but also has the ability to control the clock once you have a lead, but I haven't seen it yet.

    it will be a fad for a few years and once the NFL coaches figure out how to shut it down it will go the way of the Wishbone option

    Now that an NFL team is using it, can we consider this a pro style offense and if so is there any chance we use it-- it would enchance Jeff's strengths while hiding his weaknesses and its rush heavy and wears defenses down at least as well as our current approach- heck it seems to do everything Boom wants.

    The spread option is pretty good at controlling clock.

    But running quarterbacks are pretty cheap, pick up Jake Locker and Tebow as backups and rotate them, just like they already do with running backs.

    True. Just keep three on the roster. Bring in others as they go down. But still think its your defense that pays the biggest price if clock is used by your offense.

    Exactly what I was thinking. They're more effective running systems than passing (in most instances) and I remember reading that SO teams in college averaged 1.7 more YPC than non SO teams.

    That was one of the most exciting games of the week. I agree with Kelly changing the game however Washington was able to come back and make it a great game!

    Saw the first half but what happened in the second half? Did the Eagles offense die of exhaustion? Did Shanahan adapt?

    I say give NFL defenses some time to adjust and let's see what happens to the Eagles. One way it appears to slow down/stop this type of offense is have a ball controlled offense yourself and play keep away.

    I find it rather amusing that Chip Kelly comes right in and seems to have many of the pieces in place to run his offense. He really does not have to do much of an overhaul as opposed to what we are having to do here at Florida.
