Eagles coach Doug Pederson has been described as an idiot and a genius.
But one thing is for sure this Monday morning, Oct. 21:
It’s not like the NFC East race is over. Dallas is 4-3, a game ahead of the Birds, and has its own issues. But the Cowboys struck a big blow on last night.
Perhaps more important, the Eagles looked overwhelmed. At no point did they look like the better team.
The Eagles stars everywhere on offense and defense. Plenty of the key parts of the Super Bowl team are still on the roster. Carson Wentz has been seemingly healthy and mostly played well this season, and it hasn’t mattered much.
Injuries have affected them but the Eagles are far from the only team in the league dealing with that.
The answers are hard to come by, but it’s on Pederson to figure it out or this talented Eagles team isn’t going anywhere. That’s a guarantee.
