No one is confident in a 3-6 team, but I felt today offered a chance for the Eagles to break the losing streak. The Skins were a 3-6 team and starting a rookie QB of their own. They have a bad defense and the offense had been struggling recently. They didn’t have a dynamic rusher to deal with. This was about as favorable a situation as you’d want.
Losing 31-6 is about a million miles away from where I expected the game to be. If this wasn’t rock bottom, I hate to imagine what that is like.
The coaches did a poor job. The players did a poor job. This was an ugly, ugly day.
Everyone is ready to make a definitive read on Nick Foles. Don’t. This was one game.
* Foles vs WAS…21-46-204 with 2 INTS, 3 fumbles (none lost)…led team to 6 points
* Vick vs ARZ…17-37-217 with no INTs, 2 fumbles…led team to 6 points
Foles did some good things early on, but the game got away from him in the 2nd half and he got very sloppy.
The Eagles are now 3-7. Things are getting ugly. Andy Reid won’t be fired, even after a debacle like this. There isn’t a natural replacement for him. I don’t think it would make the situation better. Changes will come in January. There could be some lineup changes, but don’t expect crazy moves.
I’ll say more later. Just a very, very frustrating day. This team finds new ways to depress me.
