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.

Eagles vs. Saints – There’s Still HOPE!!!!

Although this team isn’t playing like the team that won the Super Bowl last year they still have a chance.  Amazingly there is still hope to get into the playoffs and make a run at a second title.  The division is not that good and even if they lose this game they can still make a run.   Doug Pederson promised us a new norm, now he needs to make good on that promise.

POSTGAME: Eagles vs. Cowboys

Well, they blew that one.  The Eagles fell to the Cowboys 27-20 last night.  The score is not a representation of effort or good play calling last night.  The Eagles failed to establish anything good last night.  They went 3 and out on the opening drive just to follow up with a pick on the second drive.  My boy DP put it best last night that the Eagles lack a true identity this year.  They are not a Team that can put up a ton of points, they are not a team that can pound the rock, they are not a solid defensive team.   So what are they?

Eagles vs Jags: Failure is not an Option

Doug Pederson made statements recently that the pressure was off. That they can get back to just doing what the Eagles do. I couldn’t disagree more. If the Eagles lose this week in London then they are in some serious trouble to not make it back to the playoffs. Doug Pederson has to find a way to right the ship and show that this is a talented team that will make championship runs now and into the future.

Eagles : The New Green Bay Packers?

Since the 2010 Super Bowl where Aaron Rodgers became the most loved QB in all of football, the Packers have struggled to get back to the big dance.   Yes, they have been close and yes each year Rodgers is healthy they have a shot but that’s just it, it’s a shot.  The year following their Super Bowl they went 15-1 and lost in the playoffs.  They have been up and down since and Aaron Rodgers has struggled to stay healthy.  It shows how difficult it can be to get back.  I am greedy and want to see more Championships while we can.

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.
