Let’s be honest here, there isn’t a single person that could have predicted this season. The highs and lows have been so dramatic that it almost doesn’t make any sense. Then when it all seemed lost in comes Nick Foles and the defense begins playing again. The city has no clue what is going on and many are beginning to wonder if we should move on from Carson Wentz and stick it out with Nick Foles. My head is spinning from all of the craziness that has happened.
Look, there isn’t any one thing this team can fix other than wanting it more than the other team this week. Malcolm Jenkins talked about it this week, check out the video below. The football gods have given us yet another chance to get back into this damn thing. The Cowboys knocked off the Redskins on Thanksgiving putting us just a game back if we can win this week. It’s time to step up and take care of business.
That went as bad as it could go. The crazy thing is that we still have a chance to win the division. Insane to think about but it’s true. The Eagles didn’t show up at all to play the Saints on either side of the ball. The injury mountain keeps getting bigger, and they are struggling to overcome those shortfalls. Let’s take a quick look at this one because lord knows we don’t need to beat a dead horse here.
8 More games to go and the Eagles are loading up to make a run. This past week the Birds made a trade to acquire another offensive threat in Golden Tate. The Eagles look to have a second half season run starting with a division foe, the Dallas Cowboys.
Last week I said that last weeks game against the Giants was going to kick start the season. Well, they steamrolled those boys in blue. This week the Birds have to travel to North Carolina to face the Panthers who are coming off of a bad loss. One team is down and one team is up, who will take it this week?
Well the Eagles got their first no doubt about it win this season by blowing out the Giants 34 – 13, my prediction by the way was 28-13. I was so close this week. Carson looked great tossing 278 yards and 3 TD’s. The running game was effective with 29 carries and 94 yards between Smallwood and Clement. The O-Line still struggled with Lane Johnson getting pushed around and Jason Peters getting owned. All in All this was the win we needed and now with a ten-day layoff the Birds can get healthy and really get this thing moving.
One thing is for sure the Eagles love to use the Giants to get the season rolling. Last year it was a 61 yard bomb field goal that got things going. Now that may have been week three and we are now in week 6, but there is no difference. We are coming off a bad loss, it’s a short week, and the Giants stink. The birds have to win this football game. Their is no option in the matter, the Eagles have to get a W against a division opponent before things get to out of hand.
This isn’t going to get any easier to say, but TRADE NICK FOLES! Look it’s nice and romantic to sit back and think that he can stay the back up for Carson Wentz. I also know that we need to have something stable just in case Carson can’t come back right away. This is all well and good, but the goal is not to be one and done. The goal is to keep adding pieces to this team to sustain long-term success. If you are able to get 1 or 2 early round picks for Nick Foles then you take it. Sell when the Stock is high.
Well here we are once again feeling the pain of being an Eagles fan. There have been videos and testimonials from fans on how we are cursed. Yes it feels that way, especially when your […]
Well last week the Birds did the exact opposite of what it was going to take to win against the Seahawks. They didn’t protect the ball, they didn’t protect the QB, they couldn’t run effectively, […]
