Philadelphia Eagles biggest losers from Week 6

The duds were a lot easier to find. Here are five guys that made us all want to pull our hair out.

Ryan Kerrigan, defensive end

Outside of coming close to batting a Tom Brady touchdown pass away (and failing to do so), Ryan Kerrigan was, again, M.I.A. for most of the contest. This may go down as one of the worst signings of Howie Roseman’s tenure, and that’s saying something.

Genard Avery, linebacker

Seriously, does this one need an explanation? Your team closes the gap to less than a touchdown in the fourth quarter. The crowd comes alive, and Genard Avery gives the momentum right back to Tampa with a SENSELESS personal foul penalty.

Nick Sirianni, head coach

At this point, it’s become absolutely necessary that Nick Sirianni give up the playcalling duties. You can blame the players for a lot, but this is a young team that isn’t getting any help from its coaches.

What was that? Five three and outs and an interception on six consecutive drives? There’s no motion. There’s no creativity. Sirianni looks confused.

Jonathan Gannon, defensive coordinator

Until things begin to turn, you guys might as well get used to seeing Jonathan Gannon on this list weekly.

Trending. Arguments against drafting another QB in Round 1. light

Derek Barnett, defensive end

Seriously, why is Derek Barnett still on this team? Hopefully, The Birds come to their senses and try to move him by the trade deadline. They’ll never get anything for him if they don’t do it now.

Jake Elliott, kicker

Forget how long he’s been here. Forget history. Jake Elliott can’t be trusted, and for what he’s making, that’s inexcusable.

The officials

Sure, it’s childish to blame the refs, but overturning that Marcus Epps penalty and that no-call on what was clearly pass interference versus Quez Watkins in the end zone deserve a mention.
