The Philadelphia Eagles are going to have some growing pains.

4. Rookies are going to have rookie moments.

All fans could agree that the Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni and defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon overall did not have the best of games as play-callers. Coach Sirianni left a lot of meat on the bone with some of his play-calling but still showed great promise and ability to lead this team to success.

Defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon had a solid game plan against San Francisco’s offense. Still, once the 49ers made the adjustments, it seemed that Gannon could not keep them from marching down the field after doing so almost the entire first half.

Gannon does know that he can call man coverage sometimes, right? Just saying.

This Eagles team is young, and they showed it in Week 2. From Devonta Smith struggling to deal with a double team to Jalen Reagor getting pushed out of bounds, there were also bad penalties that cost this team during crucial moments. There are still quite a few areas for this team to improve on.
