EAGLES 13 – Packers 27
WELL that was as much fun as being jabbed in the eye with a pointy stick, wasn’t it? Apparently “wrapping up” is no longer a part of the process of tackling. Which would have been less of a problem if we could have gotten some heat on the Packers QB, or if our entire Secondary wasn’t trying to win the Izel Jenkins Award
All in all, it was a shitty night be an Eagles fan.
The regression of QB Carson Wentz (24/36 – 66.6% – 254 – 0 – 1) has become impossible to ignore or dismiss at this point. The lack of an established offensive identity has him just throwing balls to open players, instead of playing QB.
In the absence of a legitimate run game, you have to have a QB who can carry a team on his shoulders. Last night we ran for 81 yards on 18 carries (4.5ypc). If you take away Wentz’s 4 runs for 33 yards, the remainder of our ground game was weak (14 – 48 – 3.4 – 0)
Hey here’s a thought: Defense! Wouldn’t some of that have been nice? Where can we buy some pass rush? Because we’re apparently out of it.
Did you notice?
With about 11:30 to go in the 3rd quarter, the announcers started talking about the Eagles championship drought. They didn’t say we didn’t have a championship; these NFL employees said we were suffering from a championship drought.
