What was that? No seriously... What was that? Last season, one of the greatest Philadelphia Eagles teams we ever saw became the most disappointing in a night. This time around, they became the first NFL team to fail to win 12 games after beginning the season with a mark of 10-1.
It all ends with a 32-9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We're hurt. We're angry. We want to point fingers.
Changes will be made. WE don't even know where our Birds should start though. We do have some unsolicited advice though. Do a better job of managing salaries so we can put a better team on the playing field. Sheesh.... You wouldn't believe where some of the money went this time around.
James Bradberry, cornerback
At this point, we have run out of phrases to describe James Bradberry's regression, and if we're being honest, continuing to discuss it is beginning to feel like kicking a man when he is down. We've seen him have off years immediately after a solid campaign before. We didn't care about any of his previous seasons though. He wasn't wearing an Eagles jersey.
Bradberry is too expensive to cut. With the awful 2023-2024 tape he has produced, Philly may have issues with finding an offseason trade partner (if that's their desire). He counted as more than a $3 million cap hit and represented $20 million in dead cap money this season. He's a $17.2 million cap hit that is owed $4.8 million next season.
Yeah... He kind of owes Philly a refund. He isn't the only guy who has robbed the team blind though.
