Philadelphia Eagles: Several zeroes and a few heroes ahead of Week 4
The Philadelphia Eagles head coach has a lot of work in front of him
Zero: Nick Sirianni, Head Coach.
After an amazing outing in Week 1, Philadelphia Eagles first-year head coach Nick Sirianni has struggled greatly to get his offense in any form of rhythm. He has been a week-to-week polar opposite in his game planning; he hasn’t found any balance from run-heavy to pass-heavy.
There was a lot of positivity coming out of training camp and Week 1 for the head coach, but he has yet to capitalize on any of it thus far. He looked lost against the Cowboys’ defense, who historically has not been great. He is not giving his quarterback any easy reads in the middle of the field, and his miss-use of Miles Sanders is criminal, simply criminal.
The entire Philly fan base was almost in agreeance; the one thing that the Eagles could not do was get into a shootout with Dallas. They are just not proven enough to do so, and the run game should’ve been a big part of this game, but it was nowhere to be found.
Lastly, the overall discipline of this team rests on his shoulders. From a coach who preaches all of these fundamentals and core values, he has not stuck to them himself. We are not just talking about penalties. The overall mentality of this team is a loss, and it is on him to get them back on track.
As stated earlier, we are not going to sugarcoat it; this was an awful outing. It is possibly one of the worst in recent years, and the Eagles’ schedule does not get any easier as they host the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4, followed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This season can easily get out of hand within a blink of an eye, and the new head coach has a tall task in front of him to fix it.
