QUOTE (CT_Eagle @ Dec 12 2017, 06:43 PM) *
I find myself doing the same thing at times although I usually have an idea of what I think should be done prior to the play instead of just commenting afterwards. I usually wait until after the game to see if my in game ranting was backed up by the numbers. This week, my in-game rantings were. The Eagles called pass plays 66% of the time which is very high. Especially when you consider that the Eagles were never down by more than 1 TD. You usually see that high of a pass ratio when a team is trailing big.

Pederson has, imho, done a good job of calling a balanced ratio this year. Especially after the first two games. The LA game just happened to be game where the ratio got out of whack and there really was no reason for it. Ajayi had a 5.2 YPC average on the day.
I think what I was trying to point out is that we are much better at keeping a scoresheet of the success rates when the play call isn't what we wanted and had a negative result than the success rates of when it succeeds despite our intuition.

Besides - the run/pass statistic is really incredibly limited in the scope of play calling. I think even us fans have come to appreciate that the entire dynamic of tactics and scheming isn't really just between handing a ball off or tossing it.

I find the persistence in the whole argument over pass/run ratios outdated (and tired) considering how many pass plays are throws behind the line, or quick, short routes, and how many runs are misdirectional and/or option play relying on immediate reads of specific defenders. I'm just not sure that old argument still applies as much as it used to in terms of it being purely looked at between a run/pass dichotomy.

It's impossible to have an intellectually honest conversation about this because, as we've seen on this thread, there are still a large number of Eagles fans who believe Reid infallible, and will freak out in automatic defense of him when anyone even suggests otherwise.

A 'balanced attack' to me is about not being predictable, and about sound situational play calling. These are things that Reid continues to fail miserably at to this day, along with clock management as well. Pederson has done a good job overall, and unlike Andy, seems to adjust when something doesn't work. Simply throwing out ideal pass/run ratios isn't relevant, as you say. And again, I don't even have a problem with our game plan this year apart from some individual mistakes - all I said was an obvious truth, that sometimes Pederson abandons the run when he shouldn't - and I was immediately declared a heretic. Unbelievable.

Perhaps that's why DP opted to pass when he was forced to insert his backup QB. Most would expect a heavy dose of running plays.

While I did like Reid while he was here I don't think him infallible at all. He was a good prepper and a good CEO. He undervalued WR way too much for me and did not replace coaches well. He also was seduced by the long ball later in his career.

I actually was not referring to your post, it was Rick's that sparked my research. You just jumped in for the ride.

I merely look at all the teams, their rankings, their run pass ratio and how that is reflected situationally. I think some see DP as a clone of Reid and that is understandable but he is really not. He might be more like an early Reid in some regards but it stops there.

Well we can all agree that's for damn sure.
