2018 Philadelphia Eagles: From dreams to nightmares
By Alex DeMarzo
We’ve gone from dreams to nightmares with our beloved Philadelphia Eagles.
It’s been nearly 10 months since the Philadelphia Eagles fulfilled their dreams when they hoisted the Lombardi Trophy for the first time in franchise history. Now, Philly is enduring a nightmarish season. In less than one calendar year, what happened to this team who was supposed to become the next NFL dynasty?
There is no sugarcoating how bad the 2018 Eagles have been. This team has played horrendously on both sides of the ball through eleven weeks, and they’ve been a complete and utter disappointment to Eagles fans around the world.
‘The Birds’ are coming off their worst loss of the season after they got slaughtered by the New Orleans Saints by a score of 48-7. This 41-point margin of defeat is the largest ever by a team that had won the Super Bowl in the previous season.
The Eagles now find themselves sitting at a dismal 4-6 record and third place in what’s been, statistically, the worst division in the NFL this season.
How has a team that manhandled nearly every opponent they faced a season ago now mightily struggling to compete with the mid-to-top tier teams? Let’s investigate.
