It still could be sunny in Philadelphia

Ashley Fox wastes most of this article talking about the Iggles. But she drops an interesting tidbit in from Greg Cosell: What the film showed is that the Carolina Panthers are an option, deception offense -- and that rarely works in the NFL. According to Cosell, against Dallas last week Carolina had 60 total snaps, and Newton was under center only 11 times. On the season, 66 percent of Carolina's runs have come out of the shotgun. Of Newton's 188 pass attempts and sacks this season, 153 of those have been with him in the shotgun. The most revealing set of numbers, Cosell said, comes in the red zone. The Panthers have had 54 red zone plays, and 47 of them have been in the shotgun. Of their 34 plays inside the 10-yard line, 30 have been in the shotgun.
