Philadelphia Eagles Wild Card Round duds

It’s easy to find a few duds in a loss that’s as brutal as this one was, but here are a few guys that really stood out.

1. Jalen Reagor, wide receiver/punt returner

At this point, what can you say about Jalen Reagor, except for things that are unflattering? That muffed punt was brutal (the first one we mean), and if he can’t even do that job, one has to ask why he’s still being given playing time. It truly makes us sick to watch him play football.

2. Jonathan Gannon, defensive coordinator

How’s this for analysis? We’d love to see Jonathan Gannon land a head-coaching job. We don’t say that because we think he deserves one. We say that because we just don’t ever want to see another game in which he calls the defensive plays for this team again.

3. Fletcher Cox, defensive tackle

When you’re a team captain, a future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, and a man who’s so rich that your grandchildren won’t have to work, unless they just want to, you have to show up for these games. Fletcher Cox didn’t do much of anything in this one, and it’s sad to see how no one’s willing to call him out on it.

4. Jalen Hurts, quarterback

No one’s defended Jalen Hurts more than Inside The Iggles. No one’s been more critical of him when he’s been deserving of the criticism. Yes, he has some ability, but games like this are why you can’t get angry at anyone who has their doubts about whether or not he’s the guy.

You CAN’T throw those interceptions that he threw in this one, not in a playoff game. You just can’t do it.
