Breaking down the film on Eagles, Giants

I've found the guys at Scouts Inc. to be a tremendous resource throughout the season. Gary Horton watches all the film and then provides some interesting nuggets each week:

That's an interesting observation by Horton. In my mind, McNabb's always been more of a downfield passer. He actually struggled with his accuracy on some of the shorter passes. It makes sense that he's playing better, in part, because a healthy Brian Westbrook makes the offense 10 times more explosive. And Reid's commitment to the running game actually opened up some things in the passing game. The Eagles have been designing rollouts and bootlegs for most of the season. The only difference now is that they're working. On a sour note, there's a chance they cough one up on "Monday Night Football." These are the same Browns that took down the mighty Giants on MNF. They don't play well on Sunday, but on Mondays, the Browns are ready to go.
