Eagles Suffer Awful Loss, But It Was Only One GameBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, General News, News Monday, December 16th, 2013
Our five game win streak has come to an end. We leave Minnesota as losers, unable to capitalize versus an opponent depleted in their backfield and secondary. Disappointed, frustrated and disgusted. I guarantee every player and coach like each one of us is looking to make sense of this week 15 catastrophe.
Questions; there are many.
How could our secondary mimic a performance similar to the one in Denver when no future Hall of Famer was throwing the football?
Without their franchise running back, their back-up running back, how did three touchdowns get scored by the ground attack?
Not going to kick to Patterson, I get it, but field position put our defense in a terrible position all day, not to even mention the unnecessary 4th and 1 attempt on our own 25 yards line midway through the third quarter.
Our leading rusher with eight carries? Sure there are plenty more head-scratchers to list, but no good will come from staying on this horrific defeat.
We were let down by our Philadelphia Eagles, and yet it was only “one game.”
The recovery and healing process has already begun.
Swallow, digest and erase your memory. Re-capture the appetite for NFC East supremacy. I have no doubt the Eagles will rebound for their final regular season game next Sunday night.
This is a young football with tremendous talent. If the past has taught us anything, they have found a way to lean on one another during adversity to correct mistakes and be better as a “team.”
The Cowboys lost, it doesn’t change our performance, but it draws a few pinches of salt out of our open wounds.
The Chicago Bears are coming hungry after their comeback win against the Browns. Sunday Night Football at Lincoln Financial Field will be flooded with questions of how the Eagles will rebound after their most recent setback.
The facts are straight forward. We still control how our season finishes.
We expect our coaches and players to look in the mirror; take accountability and come out swinging week 16.
Vent your feelings; but we need to move past the Vikings game.
Sunday did not change our playoff positioning, but it did change how we perceive our football team.
