The defense still has holes, but the offense is the real McCoy

McCoy might not have the cachet of, say, Asomugha, who inspired the Eagles' (somewhat presumptuous) Dream Team moniker, but his contributions are undeniable. Reid values efficiency, and a back who keeps drives alive with five-yard bursts will help cover the holes exposed—and only partially addressed in the off-season—by the Packers during their 21--16 victory in last year's NFC wild-card round.

"With all of our weapons," McCoy likes to say, "I get the shadows."

When it comes to Philadelphia's weapons, defenses would be wise not to get blinded by the spotlight.
