> HH: 
It says God 
make the chariot wheels come off so that it was 
difficult to steer the chariots:
There is no mention of mud. While that is a 
possible explanation, God may have directly 
caused the wheels to come off. <

Tie down, bridle; not come off

>HH: Third, it is quite obvious that all the Egyptians died, the whole army:

Ex. 14:28 The water flowed back and covered the 
chariots and horsemen - the entire army of 
Pharaoh that had followed the Israelites into the 
sea. Not one of them survived. <

Option A. By the time chariots drown, water increased, swallowing the foot soldiers who stumbled around. This is plausible in the context: the army was drown not immediately, but only in morning, when the tide increased. The waters specifically "came back," not down, quite reminiscent of tide.
Option B. lecol is not "even all," but (water swallowed all charioteers) up to all (army). Mounted avantgarde drown, and even the foot soldiers came to the water line.
