Obviously a heartbreaking loss, and you can focus all you want on how poorly the D played, but I choose to be really encouraged by the pass protection, RW, and Sidney Rice. I still think the future looks incredibly bright for this team, and while I called 8 or 9 wins coming into the season, I still think this team has a reasonable shot at 10 wins on that schedule.
And if they do wind up at 8 or 9 wins? I'm still really, really encouraged by the talent on the roster.
Think the Eagles are satisfied with all the talent on their roster? Talent is only worth something if you live up to it. And this is the NFL, dude, there are no pats on the back for a good try. There are wins, and there are losses.
Sure, but we're talking about a roster filled with 23 year olds. Not a roster filled with players in their prime. There is absolutely no rational reason to decide, based on the last two weeks, that players like Sherman, Thomas, Chancellor, Browner, Wagner, Wright, Clemons, Bryant, Mebane, Lynch, Wilson, Carp (who btw seems to have found his calling at guard), Unger, and Rice "aren't living up to their potential."
And yeah, I know not all of the players I listed are actually as young as I mentioned, but a lot of them are. If these same players are 8-8 in two years, we'll talk about the Eagles comparison again. But for now, I think you're over-reacting, dude.
