    In a time where most teams are trying to stop the high powered dynamic offenses, it's a great time to play hard nose football. (As long as you have a defense and can control the clock)

    Look at how squeeler defenders were tapping out of the game .... Ryan Clark got ran over by CJ2K and had to take a seat it got so bad. Defenses want to hit QB's and defenseless receivers. They want no part of a pulling Gaurd, a bruising fullback or a highly motivated running back coming downhill.

    Sometimes when everybody is doing one thing it's okay do do something else.

    If the Chargers had a running game they win last night BTW there should have been no pick 6 and o clock left for a comeback

    One of the best ways to beat a high powered offense is to limit their chances. Run the ball and control the clock. Limit the number of possessions their offense gets and if you do give them the ball make them drive 80 plus yards. This team does not want to be in a shootout because we will lose 9/10 times. So I'm perfectly fine with it as long as the run game is at least as effective as it was against the steelers. The drive we had in the second quarter just took the life right of the steelers whole team. It was a thing of beauty to see a drive last 6 and half minutes only going 50 yards for the TD.

    aside from it being a passing league..... what chip kelly did last night was revolutionize an nfl offense. I have never seen an offense move that fast for most of the game. I give them credit, I think the eagles may be hard to stop!

    th
    that is an excellent question, and I don't have an answer because I have never seen this offense, and I know it happens in college, but I don't follow college football. I do think they can keep it up for most of the season. we will see

    I honestly think that we're going to see that Eagles offense fall apart by midseason. I just don't see how you can play at that pace in the NFL for 16 full games. Redskins D looked really sloppy and undisciplined last night. At times I felt like I was watching the 2012 Titans with the way they were bouncing off of Eagles players and failing to wrap up. I'm going to need to see the Eagles do it against better defenses before I'm a believer.

    I have a feeling there will be a shift back to the old school football style of ground and pound before too long. The only way to stop these high powered offenses is to keep them off the field and I think we can continue to win games in the trenches if our defense can just hold up.
