Austin's expectations:
(players are listed from expected best performance to worst at each position)

QB:
Andrew Luck: 310 to 405 yards & 2 to 4 TDs

Matt Ryan: 225 to 275 yards & 1 to 2 TDs
Tony Romo: 250 to 300 yards & 1 to 2 TDs
Josh Freeman: 175 to 250 yards & 1 TD

Jamaal Charles: 80 to 130 yards & 1 TD
Michael Turner: 60 to 100 yards & 1 TD
LeSean McCoy: 80 to 140 yards & 1 TD (Don't like my expectations here but this is the worst Run D he's faced and Reid should be fired if McCoy doesn't get 20+ carries. Eagles 3-0 vs Giants, Ravens, Browns when he does and 0-3 vs Lions, Steelers, Cardinals when he doesn't. It's not Rocket Science Mr. Reid, it's football at it's basic form, run the ball.)
