12 Days of Christmas with a twist: Some Philadelphia Eagles holiday cheer
4 full quarters
During the Carson Wentz and Doug Pederson era, we’ve seen flashes of brilliance. We’ve seen the Eagles coaching staff go toe to toe with Bill Belichick‘s and win on football’s grandest stage. We’ve seen Coach Pederson get outcoached by Brian Flores and lose to one of the worst teams in the NFL.
We’ve seen Carson Wentz on an MVP-level tear. We’ve seen him play so badly that some got dangerously close to asking about whether or not it might be a good idea to give Josh McCown a shot.
We’ve seen slow starts and torrid finishes by this Eagles team. We’ve seen hot starts and slow finishes. Philly has played well at times. We just need to see them take that fury and fire that we’ve seen in the final drives of games versus the Chicago Bears, New York Giants, and Washington Redskins and extrapolate that over the course of four full quarters. Once they figure out how to do that, we can expect to see it done more frequently.
