The crew reported 'flight control problems'.

They also asked for a speed from ATC.

Then crashed the aircraft in VMC in what appears to have been a high energy dive.

Looking at the Tech Log, pitot static snag and 'feel diff' snag.

Anyone here ever flown a 737 without the feel diff working? The controls are extremely sensitive, especially at high speed, very easy to overcontrol. 737s tuck easily, and this will get out of the box quick. Gums I agree, we're probably looking at a structural failure, caused by over controlling due to feel diff failure, caused by pitot static problems.
