The Philadelphia Eagles lost their third consecutive game, blowing yet another fourth quarter lead against the San Francisco 49ers.
The loss dropped the Eagles to 1-3, their worst mark since the 2007 season. It also marked the sixth loss for the Eagles in their last seven games, as well as their fifth straight at home.
The Redskins narrowly defeated the St. Louis Rams to improve to 3-1. The Giants used a frantic comeback to defeat the Cardinals, also improving to 3-1. And the Cowboys suffered a classic meltdown against the Detroit Lions, dropping to 2-2.
The NFC East is winnable still. The Eagles have two against Washington, two against Dallas, and one more against the Giants.
But as of right now, the so-called Dream Team has embarrassed themselves. They are probably the most disappointing team in the National Football League.
They have major issues on offense, defense, and special teams. If they don’t improve soon, they will become this year’s version of the 2010 Dallas Cowboys.
And this is probably the lowest moment of Andy Reid’s coaching career. Think about it. The 1999 season was his first year. You can’t be too upset then. The 2005 season was a fluke, hurt by the Owens’ suspension.
But expectations this year were Super Bowl or bust, and as of now, the Eagles have done absolutely nothing to show that they are even a playoff team, let alone a Super Bowl team.
