Eagles TE Dallas Goedert follows concerning statement with an even worse theory

We seriously want to recommend in love that Dallas Goedert steers clear of any microphones for a while.

Sometimes, it's just best to let previous statements ride. Sometimes, when someone tries to explain questionable comments, they just dig deeper holes. Dallas Goedert, we love you! We truly do. We have always defended you. We think the Philadelphia Eagles are using you improperly and wasting some of your prime years, but that last statement was a head-scratcher, and your most recent was even worse.

The Birds have a Wild Card Game coming up on Monday, and folks. we aren't fans of much of what is being said.

Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert swings and misses while explaining some postgame comments.

Again, before we type one more word, let's get something straight. Dallas Goedert is our guy. He is always polite with the media. He always attempts to be as engaging as possible, but we haven't been able to get past something he said when speaking with the Philly media after the Birds' embarrassing, noncompetitive loss to the Giants in the regular-season finale.

Yeah... Forget all of that. Forget what Chad Johnson told you. The Eagles weren't "playing possum" . This team hasn't looked ready for postseason competition for the better part of the past month.

Everyone looks tired. Everyone sounds like they need a few days off, but we're well past the point of the season where anyone can ask for any.

No one seems to have any answers, yet everyone keeps talking. Dallas is at it again. During a more recent chat with members of the Philly sports media, one where he spoke to The Midday Show at 94 WIP-FM, he was asked to clarify his stance. His response was a tad more frustrating

So, which one is worse? Is it worse to take one's foot off of the gas and "get ready for the playoffs" with so much on the line and a month remaining in the regular season? Is it worse to look past two inferior opponents with so much on the line? Maybe they're equally egregious.

We stand by the previous statement. Everyone is looking for answers. No one has any. We've run out of time to make adjustments, and it's hard to imagine the Eagles can fix everything we have seen since two catastrophic losses to close the regular season.

Philly is favored versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild Card Round. Philly should be favored by the Bucs in the Wild Card Round, but if this team falters and goes 'one and done' in the NFC Playoffs, it's going to be a loud and long offseason.
