Ahead of the Eagles' third game of the 2023 NFL season, we're playing around with the offensive and defensive rotation.

You'd be amazed by the activities someone comes up with during an unofficial bye week. The Philadelphia Eagles' recent appearance on Thursday Night Football means we won't see them again until the final game of the NFL's third week of action. What have we been doing? You guessed it! We have been talking about snap counts.

Though none of us are qualified to do so, even if we think we are, much of our free time has been spent emailing the Eagles coaching staff to recommend what we believe are better ideas for rotating the offensive and defensive talent in and out of the lineup. As you might imagine, they have yet to return our calls.

We still haven't diagnosed a pattern while examining what they have done so far. Who knows? Maybe D'Andre Swift sat out in Week 1 because the Birds wanted to save the Philly native for his homecoming. Maybe we're wrong.

Either way, we thought we'd throw our two cents in. Don't try to stop us. Despite two wins in as many games, we'd still like to see more of a handful of Eagles and a lot less of a few others. Fasten those seat belts. We have much to discuss.
