I can honestly say I am not worried. I came into the season hoping for nothing more than a winning record. I had no expectations of a playoff run. There are too many holes on this team coupled with a few unknowns for me to have had a lot of optimism. If they even sniff the playoffs they will have exceeded my expectations so I am worry free.

Pederson is one of the unknowns for me. My opinion of him at this point is still being formed. My gut tells me that he is going to suffer the same shortcomings as Reid. Poor game day decision making and a predisposition to fall back on excessive passing when the game plan begins to falter.

Wentz is the second unknown for me. One thing has become apparent to me this year is that his short and medium accuracy are good. It was tough to gauge if you only looked at his numbers from last year. There were too many easily catchable balls that were dropped last year. It seems the new WR corp, plus better hands from Agholar, have solved that problem. As a result, I think Wentz's completion percentage has gone up this year although I have to checked to verify. His long ball accuracy has been a problem this year.

The secondary is still a problem. I think Darby and Jones will upgrade that unit considerably once they return. Hopefully they are both back in December. Who knows, if the Eagles can keep the division close, they can provide a necessary boost towards a playoff birth. Mills will be a good nickel and Douglas has potential as well.

I was also concerned about the running game coming into the season. Yesterday's effort was a good sign. The OL made some holes the RBs hit them. I was especially impressed with the fight in Smallwood. I don't recall seeing that from him in the past.

It may be that the OL can run block well but I still have not seen any evidence that they can pass block. This unit has to be addressed in the off season. Peters is getting long in the tooth and both the LG and Kelce need to be upgraded.

My 'gut' told me this last year. Now, it's painfully obvious. I always hold out hope that someone can scream advice in his ear until he learns, or maybe intervene on some level, but he was absolutely terrible yesterday. The Giants had no business even being in that game. We won despite him, end of story.

Is there such a thing as "excessive passing" in today's NFL? If so, what is the benchmark for excessive passing?

Of course. We would all agree that 0% passing is too little and 100% is too much, or "excessive". The real question is at what level is it too much and there is no consensus. Take a look at various posters on this site and there is a healthy variety of opinion on this subject. For me, I draw the line at around 60% for the season, not an individual game, for the season. Take a look at the history of Super Bowl winners and their season pass percentage. You will find very few teams have won the Super Bowl with a seasonal pass percentage over 60%. A couple have approached 60 but did not break it. The 60% line is a very good dividing line.

Individual games are different. There are numerous factors which may lead a team to pass for more than 60% in a game. Being behind by a large margin or late in the game would be cause. Also, taking advantage of an opponent with a weak secondary. The flow of the game will dictate the percentage.
