1. This Philadelphia Eagles organization isn’t going to bash itself or its players.
Coaches know more about football than we do. We act like they don’t, but they do. Still, it’s hard to figure out what they’re thinking sometimes. We all get that they aren’t going to bash their players in front of the media at a press conference. That accomplishes nothing, but it does mean that, occasionally, we’ll have to hear that Vinny Curry is doing a better job than he is and we shouldn’t be worried about Andre Dillard or JJ Arcega-Whiteside.

It’s Philly. The media is going to ask tough questions, but if you think Doug Pederson and Jim Schwartz are going to answer those questions by stating that these guys “suck”, think again. It isn’t going to happen. This team isn’t going to bash itself or its players.
Mack Hollins will forever live in the realm of failed draft selections of the Howie Roseman era even if Carson Walch believes he did a great job because he lines up correctly. Place him in the Shelton Gibson and Donnel Pumphrey class, skill players who didn’t have the skill to succeed at the NFL level. His Eagles resume consists of 28 games, 26 receptions, 351 receiving yards, and a single touchdown.
Howie Roseman is better at his job than the majority of us would be if we did it, but that doesn’t mean these guys are perfect. Hopefully, the Eagles’ brass has learned from past mistakes, but if you’re waiting for them to admit they’ve made a mistake, don’t hold their breath. Look no further than something we’ve all seen once too often over the past couple of years.
