The Eagles are now sitting at two wins and three losses. That's hard to believe considering how well they played in the first two weeks. But a close, heartbreaking loss to the Cowboys, a terrible loss to the Bears, and a Washington victory changed all that. The Eagles look all but alive in the rugged NFC East.
This week's 23-17 loss is just another example of the fact that Eagles NFC empire is crumbling. I have to confess that I didn't watch too much of the game, because the Phillies were playing in a far more important game. I did catch some of it, and it wasn't pretty. The Eagles jumped ahead to a 14-0 lead early in the game, and I thought it was over. The Eagles looked dominant early on. How foolish am I? Expecting the Eagles to hold a commanding lead? Stupid!
Some more bad news has just come out of Eagle Land. Brian Westbrook has two broken ribs. That's the nail in the coffin for me. Westbrook is the only guy who keeps this team in playoff talk, and now he's racking up injuries like traffic tickets.
There needs to be a change. Andy Reid's crap is getting old, and the fact that his team keeps choking in games doesn't help him. Eagles fans either think Reid is a wonderful strategist (there are some crazy people out there) or a bumbling buffoon. I think it's safe to say that more people side with the latter.
Donovan McNabb seems to play worse as the season goes on. I think he has one, maybe two, years left as the starting quarterback. He seems to choke after the first quarter. If he continues to do that, he shouldn't be back next year.
