Here are the heroes and zeroes following a Philadelphia Eagles implosion in D.C.

Well, it’s human nature, isn’t it? Maybe for the Philadelphia Eagles fan, it’s something else. We can’t help ourselves. We have to pat people on the back when they do something right, sometimes too much, and we have to point the finger when people do something wrong.

Thank goodness Andre Dillard wasn’t around for Sunday’s game in Washington, D.C. You know he doesn’t respond well to criticism.

Okay, maybe that was both cruel and unnecessary. Andre Dillard does have some ability. He definitely couldn’t have done any worse than Jason Peters did on Sunday, but here’s the point in all of this. This team has to be better because if what we saw in Week 1 carries over into the next two games, Philly will be 0-3 by the end of September.

Yes, we’re very aware of the fact that the third game of the season is against the Cincinnati Bengals, and it’s at home. Still, with what you saw in the second half at D.C., are you ready to pencil that one in as a win? Remember, you thought this first game was an easy win too.

Gosh, this sucks. It’s time to look ahead to the Los Angeles Rams, but before we do, here are five studs and duds from Week 1’s game. Yes, Eagles fans. We were able to find five studs. Here’s the list. Let’s start with the guys who stunk it up so we can end on a high note.
