Is Philly stuck with the committee approach?
Eagles RBs have carried the ball only 69 times in four games, and no one has emerged as a legitimate No. 1 back.

The Philadelphia Eagles haven't exactly wowed anyone with their offense this year. Quarterback Donovan has a 51.3 passer rating, ranking just above Ravens rookie Kyle Boller (46.8) and Chicago's Kordell Stewart (50.6). It's no surprise then that the Eagles have the NFL's 29th-ranked pass offense.
However, things are better when they keep the ball on the ground. Only nine teams average more yards rushing per game than Philadelphia. However, that number is somewhat deceiving considering McNabb's 174 rushing yards is second on the team.
