The Eagles scored 33 points. And it wasn’t enough.
I know the loss benefits the team in terms of draft position and winning would have meant nothing, but this was Dallas. I never want to lose to these guys. The loss drops us to 3-9 and assures Andy Reid of his first losing season since 2005. I am really starting to wonder if this team will win again. 3-13 will not shock me.
There are plenty of things to be happy about tonight. Nick Foles had his first flat out good start. He was sharp tonight. Bryce Brown ran for 169 yards. Riley Cooper had a terrific TD catch. Brandon Graham had 1.5 sacks. Damaris Johnson had a 98-yard PR for a TD. Yes, that does sound weird. I didn’t pay much attention to Dennis Kelly, but that also works as a compliment since he wasn’t getting beaten over and over.
The defense stunk in the 2nd half. Romo had a rating of 95 at halftime. Went 10-10 with 3 TDs in the 2nd half and finished the game with a rating of 150. The secondary was just awful. At this point, I’m open to the new coach getting rid of all of them. The tackling is terrible. Sometimes it is technique. Sometimes it is effort. Sometimes it is both.
I’m happy that the young players played well. I’m heartbroken on losing to Dallas.
And I’m starting to seriously think we aren’t going to win the Super Bowl.
