Since 2004, it feels every Eagles’ season is a replay of the one before. Who runs on every 3rd and 4th down? One of my favorite stats from Sunday’s loss to the Giants: The Eagles had the ball for just 90 seconds in the first quarter. Ninety seconds!
There has been whining for years now over poor play calling. Perhaps it’s time to look into this. Of all people, it makes sense to put the ball in the capable hands of Brian Westbrook. Yet, on Sunday, he was getting stopped all game. Westbrook had 26 yards on 13 carries … McNabb had 35 on 3.
It would almost be easier to take if the Eagles were truly awful. But they’re not, so why do they keep losing?
