1. If this Philadelphia Eagles offense can gel, this could be special.

Philly’s first drive was systematic. Carson Wentz got his best weapons involved early as his first two completions went to Dallas Goedert and DeSean Jackson. The final throw of his first drive of the season ended with six points as he found Zach Ertz in the back of the end zone.

Just in case you’re wondering, had some of you gotten your wish and Philly would have traded him, that wouldn’t have happened.

There was also a beautiful over-the-shoulder throw that landed in Goedert’s hands. Philly had opportunities to connect on a few deep passes, but they didn’t. If they can get a running game going, and they can dissect and cure what’s going on with this offensive line, this team could be good on offense.

2. So, you still think this team doesn’t need a workhorse?

If you’re one of those people that believe that this game would have turned just because of Miles Sanders’ presence, you may want to rethink that. Philly got nothing out of their rushing attack, and with all of the issues this offensive line had in this one, it’s difficult to believe that ’26’, as talented as we all know he is, would have been able to make much happen.

Oh, and now Boston Scott is hurt. This team needs a bell-cow running back. Period.
