The True Measure of the Defense's Awfulness
Posted by Derek
Most damning: The Eagles have so far played the 14th, 21st, 27th and 28th ranked offenses. Not a good one in the bunch.
The league's best quarterback is Aaron Rodgers. Tom Brady is #2.
Samyan Manith is #3.
If you want to be comprehensive in your approach to assigning blame for each loss, it's fine to talk about the offense's red zone struggles, their collapses without Vick, the rookie kicker, etc. Knock yourself out. But those are bits and pieces.
Meanwhile, this defense is terrible. By Philadelphia standards, it's historically bad.
It's time to make the move.
