The Philadelphia Eagles might be halfway in the grave.
Coming off of two straight losses to open the Philadelphia Eagles 2020 season, there isn’t much to be optimistic about if you’re a ‘Birds’ fan. There is no silver lining, nor is there sugar coating things, the Eagles are not a good football team.
This past offseason, Howie Roseman did his best to put together a solid roster, but a good roster doesn’t translate into wins. From top to bottom, on paper, the Eagles have a solid depth chart.
They have their franchise quarterback, their franchise running back, improved offensive weapons, a manageable offensive line, a stout interior defensive line rotation, and finally a stellar cover corner, so why has this team already fizzled into oblivion?
It starts at the top. Head Coach Doug Pederson has clearly been outcoached two weeks in a row, and from the opening kickoff versus the Los Angeles Rams in Philly’s home opener, Pederson’s team wasn’t prepared to play. The tone was set when Miles Sanders coughed the ball up on his third touch.
The Eagles clawed back into the game, but with 8:14 left in the third quarter, Carson Wentz gift wrapped momentum, and the eventual win, to the Rams. Before we move on to a Week 3 date with the Cincinnati Bengals, let’s examine the team’s woes, wounds, and the reeling Wentz Wagon.
