I still do not understand why they do not use the short pass and set up a lot of screen plays against the eagles. Their D is over pursuing and the field behind the LB's is wide open. But then again Killdrive knows best or so he thinks because we have not beaten them in 7 out of 9 games. Perhaps some day he will figure out that it is time to change from having Eli go deep on the Eagles to going short and getting YACs.
Especially when Hixon, although he did very well, he does not have the "go up and get the ball" skills that Nicks has in that situation. He is not the right WR for that type of pass play.
