To paraphrase WC Fields. . . . Not much to report this week, other than this looks like another spanking at the hands of a superior team. The Iggles are flying high under the steady hand of Carson Wentz. A guy I thought Philly hugely overreached for by taking him with the 2nd pick overall and giving the Browns a boatload of picks. Wentz has the Eagles at 6-1 and is under serious MVP consideration so far this season. The Browns? Well, uh, 0-7 ring any bells? They, along with us, are the remaining winless teams. And I thought the Jets were tanking their season. They are an astounding 3-4 and a horrible call from being 4-3.
But these are the vagaries of the NFL. Surprise teams, disappointing teams, rebuilding teams, and shit teams. We appear to be somewhere between shit and rebuilding. I like how we have played with the talent level we have been saddled with, but last week’s loss was disheartening after seeing us play fairly well the previous 5 games. So, on to Philly. A game that should be somewhere between a 12 to 24 point loss. Not much hope to hold out for, other than, like Dallas, Philly’s defense isn’t scaring anyone. But that didn’t get us anywhere vs Dallas.
Onward and downward . . .
