It’s officially time for change in this Philadelphia Eagles organization

The Philadelphia Eagles are miserable and it is time to clean house.

It’s evident that the Philadelphia Eagles have hit rock bottom and that there’s no light at the end of the tunnel either. Following two consecutive losses, both of which were ugly, it’s time for Jeffrey Lurie to rid his pantry of all the old, expired food. The Eagles are no longer an average team. Through ten games it’s a flat-out dumpster fire, and, and it may be better that they be the dumpster fire than the average team.

There’s no doubt the Eagles have the talent to compete, but they aren’t competing. They have a Super Bowl-winning head coach, but he no longer coaches with conviction. Philly houses a $100 million quarterback, but he’s playing like a developmental late-round rookie. It’s time for a change.

The Philadelphia Eagles have problems from top to bottom.

let’s begin at the top. Vice president and general manager Howie Roseman has built the second most expensive roster in the NFL, but his team is three games under .500 through 11 weeks. He’s negotiated abysmal contracts, he’s extended aging players or, in Jason Peters’ case, an ancient player, and good old Howie will be dealing with significant cap issues heading into the 2021 offseason.

For the coaching staff, it starts and ends with head coach Doug Pederson. He no longer threatens opponents or puts his offensive weapons in the best position to succeed. He’s delusional and blinded by Carson Wentz’s flaws, and he’s also seemingly evaluating his current starting quarterback by what he’s accomplished in past seasons. There are failed in-game adjustments. The play-calling is failing. The overall team performance is failing.

For Carson Wentz, it’s time to ride the pine. He continues his lip service and continues to play like one of the worst quarterbacks to take the field this season. He talks about adjustments, improvements, and turning things around, but he fails to back up his words. The same can be said for the rest of the team. Wentz’s recklessness is inexcusable but it never ends. He isn’t playing like the elite quarterback that we were told that he was. As a matter of fact, he doesn’t even look competent.

The Philadelphia Eagles aren’t dead, but it shouldn’t affect a thing.

Due to the NFC East being the worst division in the history of the NFL’s 101-year history, the Eagles are still outright leaders in the division, but that shouldn’t affect Lurie’s decisions about what to do next.

It’s very possible that Philly could lose their next four games to fall to an embarrassing 3-10-1. How much more of this does Lurie have to watch for reality to sink in? How many games can the second most expensive roster in the league lose without earth-shattering changes?

Wentz should be benched. Pederson must relinquish play-calling, and eventually his job as head coach, and even though Howie Roseman built a Super Bowl-winning roster in 2017, it’s evident that he won’t be doing that again. It has been the same old tired story for weeks and it’s time for a change in the City of Brotherly Love.
