Reid certainly has his system and believes in the passing game, but another issue with our running game IMO has been its inconsistency...

If the revamped OL and Westy/Bucky can show the running game will work, believe me Reid will call it...

It worked best in 2003 and he called the most balanced ratio if I remember correctly...

I doubt it, but I see 1600 total yards.

I think he gets just barely 1000 rushing if he starts every game, and about 500-600 receiving. Buck and Moats will combine for about 700, with McNabb pushing for 200 or so.

So you'll think he'll have 800-900 receiving yards??

Not with Stallworth now on board. Can't see McNabb throwing to him that much.

Absolutely. The Eagles will run the ball more and they will run it with Westbrook more. Look at the opening drive vs Oakland. He will also break enough big runs (especially in the 4th quarter when our O-line can dominate) that he will easily get over 1000 yards.

This is what I envision:

Rushing: 240 carries, 1150 yards. (Average 15 carries per game - 4.8 yards per attempt). That is only 72 yards per game.

Receiving: 80 receptions, 850 yards.

2000 total yards is not out of the question.
