So here we go setting the stage. The Philadelphia Eagles are struggling to start the season, already losing a division game, then get a win. This week they go to play the Washington Redskins, another NFC East team that is struggling. The Eagles need to win this game, come together as a team, and set the stage for the rest of the season and prove to themselves who they are.
Well that didn’t happen, and we saw more of the same from the team. We saw more mistakes, more dropped passes, more costly penalties and more lack of focus. It wasn’t all bad, and we saw glimmers of great plays on all sides of the ball. And that is what gives us just the smallest amount of hope for salvaging this season.
This week the New Orleans Saints come to town with Drew Brees possibly set to take apart the Eagles secondary. They are also coming off of a win this week after their own horrible start to the season. This is yet another opportunity for the Eagles to start down a different path this season than they started on. We’re still discouraged, but maybe things can change.
Eagles fans are angry, though, and some are calling for Chip Kelly’s termination already. They are hopeless at this point. Hopefully those fans are wrong, and Chip can pull this team out of the funk that it is in. I don’t want the organization to start with yet another coach. Not now.
