The 2023 Eagles are free-falling with the playoffs on the horizon. Hopefully, this won't continue.
A promising season has given way to fear that it will end early once the playoffs begin. Things continue to get worse for the Philadelphia Eagles. Let's hope they're only getting worse before they get better.
Following blowout losses to the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys, Philly's final prime-time game of the regular season, one against the Seattle Seahawks, represented a chance to get back in the win column, but an already suspect defense would let one slip away in the closing moments.
Before that one, the Eagles announced on December 17th that defensive coordinator Sean Desai would hand over play-calling duties to senior defensive assistant Matt Patricia. Questionable play calling on offense and poor execution from quarterback Jalen Hurts has also been an issue. One of our more recent memories was a game-sealing interception by Hawks safety Julian Love.
Philadelphia has lost three straight games, the most recent to a team that was navigating a four-game losing streak of its own. The Eagles continue down uncharted territory. The clock continues to tick on their season. They're playing flawed football, but the steps to turning things around are obvious. The questions are about whether or not Philly has the horses to make that happen.
