I wish I could say I’ve accepted that the Eagles will not be making a playoff run this year. The off season and camp seemed so optimistic. I have been a staunch Reid supporter up until today, but I’ve reached the breaking point. De-activating Jackson was a self inflicted wound, and Maclin getting banged up was unfortunate, but the fact that LeSean McCoy only had 14 touches the whole game set me over the edge. With your 2 top receivers out he’s obviously your best player, and arguably the best runningback in the NFL. Yet the Eagles are leading once again in the fourth quarter and for some reason feel the need to pass. Reid has to go.
…And if Reid isn’t gone next year, Castillo better be. He’s totally incompetent as a defensive coordinator. He’s totally mis-using Nnamdi’s ability to be a shut down, man corner. He’s got rookies like Jaquan Jarrett and Brian Rolle covering Larry Fitzgerald! Are you kidding?
Lastly, Vick and Jackson need to step it up. Vick is making bad decisions, and regressing to the Atlanta Falcon Michael Vick we all know. He wasted a timeout early in the fourth quarter, with 30 seconds on the play clock, because he couldn’t read the coverage! That or he wasn’t getting a clear call from the coaches. Jackson is acting like a child. I honestly don’t think I’d be upset if we canned him next season and drafted someone who could become a true #1 receiver. Someone tall and physical, and dangerous in the red zone.
