Well, if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, there is a pulse, and that’s a good thing.

Wow, they actually do care! Call Carson Wentz‘s benching unfair. Go ahead and say this is some rude treatment by the Philadelphia Eagles to their franchise quarterback. To be honest, it’s hard to quantify how some of you came up with that. Didn’t this guy get unlimited chances not only this season but over the course of an extended amount of time in 2018 and 2019 as well?

Regardless of what side you’re on in that argument, something happened in Week 14, and you all saw what that was. This team played the most inspired game that they’ve played all season, and only one guy was missing.

What’s that? Zach Ertz can’t block? Did you see the block he threw on that Miles Sanders run? Oh, so the offensive line is atrocious huh? So, if that’s the case, why is it that Jalen Hurts wasn’t sacked? Some of you said that Jalen Reagor sucks. Well, if that’s the case, he sure didn’t look like it in Week 14.

Here are a few thoughts about the Philadelphia Eagles’ fourth win of the season.

Josh Sweat led a defense that registered five sacks with two of his own. Unless he’s physically incapacitated, he should never be standing on the sideline on third down. That rookie quarterback didn’t seem too frazzled. He completed17 of 30 pass attempts for 167 yards, and he threw a touchdown.

That vaunted New Orleans Saints defense that no one can run on gave up two one-hundred-yard rushing performances to two different Eagles. Miles Sanders racked up 115 yards on 14 carries and found his way into the end zone thanks to an 82-yard burst. Hurts added 106 yards on the ground on 18 carries.

Philly now stands at 4-8-1 on the season, and though some of you may not want to hear this, they’re still alive for a postseason. Next up on the schedule is a road date with the Arizona Cardinals. Expect Philly to enjoy this one for a few more hours, and then, it’s full steam ahead for the rest of the season. Oh yeah, expect to hear a few things about a quarterback controversy tomorrow.
