Philadelphia Eagles schedule: Everything good, bad, and ugly after Week 4
The Philadelphia Eagles defense was horrific against Kansas City
Ugly: Every player on the Eagles defense not named Hargrave
It may be time for the Philadelphia Eagles to look to move off of defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, possibly. He didn’t register one defensive stat in Week 4, and Cox being the highest-paid player on this roster, needs to be the Fletcher Cox of old. To put it in perspective, Cox has only one sack in his last eight games.
Philly fans, let’s be honest; we all could not fathom a secondary worse than what the Eagles presented last season. When the Iggles added safety Anthony Harris and cornerback Steve Nelson to the roster, it was pretty much fans who agreed with the notion that this secondary would be in much better shape.
Through four weeks of the 2021 season, the secondary still struggles, and Harris and Nelson have not done much to help. Two weeks in a row now that Nelson has had blown coverages and assignments.
Harris has not been much better; getting torched by receiver Tyreek Hill and missing tackles has made this secondary vulnerable to many plays. To be fair, they are also not being put into the best situation by their coach, defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon. Speaking of Gannon, let’s check in on him.
