Throw Baby Throw

This year, as in each of the last four years, the primary topic of discussion for Eagles fans during the season is the ancient debate of "why won't they run the ball?" (Narrowly edging out "why won't they get a big-time receiver," "when will Andy Reid be fired," and "Does Donovan have heart"?")

The throw-or-not-throw debate has hit a crescendo in the past week or two, as the team has used a more balanced offense in huge wins over the Cardinals and Giants. This has coincided with a big improvement in defensive play, as well as a return to health for Brian Westbrook.

Still though, when the Eagles play the Browns tonight, I'm rooting for more throwing. That's because I'm in the championship game of my fantasy league, I'm winning by 28 points going into tonight, and my opponent has Westbrook. So he can run all he wants, so long as he gets no touchdowns. Go pass!
