The Eagles blew a 17-0 lead to lose the game 24-21. Once again the defense gave up late touchdowns to the Panthers and the offense couldn’t find a way to get back into it. There were mistakes made on both sides of the football and if they don’t fix it soon the Eagles could be on the outside looking in this year.
First I want to talk about the defense. WTF. Ronald Darby allowed Funchess to get behind him in the end zone for an easy touchdown. The other play that is driving me crazy is when Cam steps up in the pocket on fourth and ten is hit the ball floats into the air to a wide open T. Smith who then takes it for 35 yards. Jalen Mills was behind him and then blew an open field tackle that allowed Smith to get downfield. Looked like the Titans game all over again.
Offense. Look I got you were up 17-0. You have got to put teams away. With that being said why the hell 3rd and 2 on the 14 are you calling a pass play. Wentz you can’t throw the ball into double coverage in the end zone, GET THE FIRST DOWN. Then you follow that with another pass play. Jesus dude. Get the first. You would have had 4 more downs to get the ball in there.
The Eagles are now 3-4 on the season and need to pick up the pace. They can no longer look at winning the conference but can only focus on the division. They will need to sweep the division and pick up at least one more win along the way. If they don’t they will be heading home early this year.
I can’t write anymore because I am getting more and more pissed as I go.
