POSTGAME: Eagles vs. Saints

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.

POST GAME: Eagles vs. Giants

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. 

Eagles vs. Giants: Time to Kick Start the Season

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.

Trade Foles While the Stock is High

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. 

Eagles vs. Rams

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, […]
