For Philadelphia Eagles fans, many of the team’s weak links are obvious.
In a season where the Philadelphia Eagles have already lost a divisional game to a rival that they should be better than, it’s easy to get frustrated. Despite the fact that they didn’t log a single win until the fourth game of the season, they’re still in first place in the NFC East, but no one is bubbling over with excitement with that knowledge either.
Winning cures a lot in professional football, and though everyone’s in a better mood following a road win versus the San Francisco 49ers than they were after Philly battled to a tie versus the Cincinnati Bengals, a 1-2-1 win-loss total has people asking a ton of questions about the ‘Birds’.
Two of the most commonly asked are as follows. Why hasn’t this team won more, and whose fault is it that they haven’t?
Sure, some of it is on Carson Wentz. He’s going to have to share some of the blame with Doug Pederson though. There’s also Howie Roseman. At some point during the first month of the season, we’ve all debated about whether or not one or all of them should be run out of town.
It takes an entire team to win and lose in the mighty NFL, but after four games, the reasons for some of this Philly angst are obvious. Here are four ‘Birds’ that may have worn out their welcomes already, not including the aforementioned Wentz, Pederson, and Roseman.
