Week 13 is here and the Eags are…breaking my heart! In a division that bodes a 36% win percentage (which is good for a TIE for 1st, by the way) the Eagles find themselves in the bottom half. I was holding onto hope that the football gods would shine down on Philly and make it possible to win the East with 6 wins—don’t think that’s gonna happen now. Not when the f$&@ing Giants are riding a 3 game winning streak!
*Though, that particular streak will be coming to an end this week when the G-men travel to Seattle. #Goodluck.*
Ugh, enough about the 1st place Giants, who are tied with Washington—*I think the most ”2020” outcome for this season would be the team with no name winning the Super Bowl!! #thinkofthemerch*
Philly goes to Lambeau Field to face Aaron Rodgers and the 8-3 Green Bay Packers. Normally this matchup would get me all giddy inside and ready for a smash mouth game—not so much this week. Green Bay’s play this season doesn’t scare me as much as the Eagles’ play does.
Green Bay is clicking. Philly is not. Aaron Rodgers is playing like…Aaron Rodgers (33 TD, 4 INT, 67.6% comp) while Carson Wentz continues to play like Ryan Leaf, minus the insanity. Wentz has been sacked 46 times this season, 30 away from David Carr’s all time record of 76 back in 2002. Wentz is running for his life on most drop backs. The man has 0.7 seconds to make a decision before he gets thrown to the turf with no regard for his safety. Not an excuse—but it has to be a factor. Interceptions (15) are coming fast and furious for Wentz and I do not see an end in sight. Are the poor decisions caused by the sack total? Nah hell nah.
Start Jalen Hurts?
Ok, broken record time—Howie and Dougie P need to go. NO, DO NOT START JALEN HURTS IF CARSON WENTZ IS HEALTHY. Try and finish strong this year—Crazier things have happened. All these so-called “Eagles fans” are already ALREADY talking about draft picks and draft position. FAKE FAN ALERT!!! By the way—It’s more fun rooting for your team when they are shitty rather than dominant.
Why did Howie Draft a quarterback in the 2nd round?!?! There were backup-worthy guys to pick up in the late rounds of the draft. When a guy is drafted 2nd round—it is an expectation that he will see significant playing time. Howie ruffling feathers that don’t need ruffled. Pro athletes have fragile psyches—looking over your shoulder at your potential replacement doesn’t do anything to boost your confidence.
Copious amounts of media ferver swirling in and around the Eagles locker room about what’s going to transpire at the end of the 2020 season and what 2021 has to offer. I’ll tell you one thing thst. NEEDS to happen—Howie Rossman and/Dougie P. Howie cant draft and it appears that Dougie has lost the locker room. Where do you go from there? The Eags cannot move on from Wentz—one more year. Carson gets one more year to prove he can lead this team to division, conference and Super Bowl titles. There’s just so much money at stake!! 60 million!?!??
Ugh—rant over. I can’t go against my guys!!! Eags win handily 35-7.
