2. The team isn’t panicking, so Philadelphia Eagles fans shouldn’t either.
We’ve gone from the ‘next-man-up’ mantra to ‘the sky isn’t falling’. That’s where this team seems to be in its thinking. That’s even been said by the aforementioned Carson Wentz in his post-game interview following Philly’s loss in the 2020 home opener.
You’ve heard the stats so much about what 0-2 starts mean in the NFL that it probably makes you sick to hear the conversation by now. Look, any chances of Philly getting off to a ‘hot start’ evaporated when the ‘Birds’ blew a 17-point lead in Washington.
A second-consecutive loss to the Los Angeles Rams didn’t help anything, so here we are. We can all mail the remainder of the season in, or we can carry on.
During several post-game press conferences after Week 2’s game, we heard from head coach Doug Pederson, and we heard from Carson Wentz. We also heard from Jason Kelce, Miles Sanders, Brandon Graham, and Rodney McLeod. Everybody says the same thing. This team can turn this around and their going to turn it around. If they believe it, then so should we. It’s happened before right?
Who knows why this team loves making things hard on themselves, but they’ve done it again. We’ll have to wait and see what they can do in Week 3 versus the Bengals, but don’t get too excited guys and gals. Based on what we’ve all seen from both teams, that one won’t be an easy out either, but here’s the saving grace. They play in the NFL’s worst division. They’ve got five games remaining in the division. They just have to take this one game at a time.
