The home crowd at Lincoln Financial Field got our first loss of the season to the Green Bay Packers 27-13. It was the worst loss of the season as well, at 14 points. What that means is to date, the Eagles have hung with every team they lost to, and most of those losses were by less than a touchdown. Feel down about this loss, feel bad that the season is all but over, but Eagles fans, do not feel bad about how this season has set a standard for the organization moving forward. There is a lot of hope, even though we want that success now, not next year, or the year after that. We want that success now. But first the Eagles have to lose to the Packers, who played a better game against an Eagles team with several starters injured, and a struggling Offense with a rookie quarterback.
December has hit, meaning not only colder temps, but it means we are quickly approaching the end of the season. This means we get to watch our future quarterback Carson Wentz continue to develop week after week. Let him learn by making mistakes, getting hit, or making poor decisions. There is a lot to like in this kid, and we are riding this Wentzwagon to playoffs in the not so distant future.
The Birds fly over to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals this week. The Bengals are also struggling, and this is a game the Eagles, on paper, should win. Looking forward to getting that taste back when we take on the NFC East teams the rest of the season.
Congratulations to Jeremiah Trotter and Merrill Reese for being inducted into the Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Fame. Both are deserving of the accolades.
