Of course the Eagles now have a “QB Controversy”…

2020 is the appropriate backdrop for a “SNAFU” in the Eagles’ master plan… Suddenly our franchise QB is no longer the Prince or Heir Apparent… but just another guy. This sort of fall from grace happens a lot in the NFL, just not usually a mere two-and-a-half years after you’ve won a Super Bowl. The most recent comparison is Joe Flacco’s fall from grace in Baltimore after Joe basically willed his team to the title in 2012. A lot of parallels exist in that reference— an offensive line which collapsed due to injuries, a quarterback whose physical attributes required...

A flock of Eagles shot down in Cleveland, 22-17

This one goes in the “team effort loss” file, and it looks like the current group has lost touch with recent previous seasons’ winning mojo. The media and many fans will pile on Carson Wentz and Doug Pederson for another disappointing loss, and for their need to scapegoat someone for taking away the fun of pulling for a good team.

That gut-check will be followed by games against 7-3 Seattle, 7-2 Green Bay, 7-2 New Orleans, and 6-4 Arizona. At such watershed moments over the course of...

Eagles players and coaches quite aware of ‘blow up the team’ calls from fans

We’ve been through our fair share of disappointing Eagles teams which despite inherent talent and leadership somehow managed to trip on their own shoelaces. This current edition seems to be one of them. If the current woes of the team could be simply attributed to the aimless vagaries of a COVID-19 factor which certainly affected practice routines and position-room meetings, then we could simply write off the team’s struggles in 2020 as an anomaly. But there seem to be many more reasons why the Eagles aren’t clicking, and they point to a franchise which has possibly lost its competitive...
