Rather than offering up some good analysis, let’s keep this quick. I know you’re pissed off and want to vent about Chip Kelly, Mike Vick, Matt Barkley and many others. Heck, Jonathan Tuttle and Tyler Durden aren’t even safe.
The defense played well enough to win.
The offense sucked. There were a variety of issues. Poor QB play hurt. The skill players didn’t do Barkley any favors.
Chip Kelly didn’t do any of us any favors with some of his decisions.
A few fans have already started to gripe about Kelly. The guy had a bad day, but I’m still thrilled that he is the Eagles coach and think he is the right long term answer.
It would have been so cool if he came in and won right away, but NFL history shows that doesn’t happen very often. There has to be a perfect marriage of roster and new coach for that to happen. Clearly the Eagles aren’t exactly what Kelly wants. He needs time to get the roster the way he wants it.
The Eagles are 3-5, one game out of 1st place in the division. Make of that what you want.
The offense needs a QB. That guy could be on the roster, but he hasn’t stepped forward to this point.
The defense is heading in the right direction.
And STs is doing a great job of turning bad punt snaps into TDs. So that’s definitely key to building a winning team.
Long, crappy day. But at least Dallas lost and did so in dramatic fashion. That was a nice gift for the Football Gods to offer us.
