The Eagles have spent too much time this season worrying about words said off the field–I’m looking for less “dream team” and some more execution inside the 10-yard line. So excuse me if not all that concerned about Frank Gore’s interview on ESPN’s First Take in which he said the Eagles “quit” in their second half implosion last Sunday.
Michael Vick disagreed with Gore’s assessment, obviously, but spent more time emphasizing that his team can’t worry about last week. And that’s really what’s important here. There’s no need to respond beyond that, creating a pissing match that can’t help win games on the field. That’s all that matters right now. This team can’t afford to let anything else matter.
The Eagles may have quit last weekend. There’s no way to prove “quit” on the field. They were simply awful in all phases and that’s all that really matters. Actually, all that really matters is how they plan to fix these issues moving forward.
So while national media outlets want to dust up another verbal firestorm involving the Eagles, it’s certainly in their best interest to simply move on. Here’s hoping they have.
