THAT was your number one offense in the NFL?!?! Offensive might be the right word, but getting spanked at home by the previously reeling Jacksonville Jaguars will give the Eagles plenty to consider during their bye-week.
Well, I'd been griping that I wanted the Eagles to play consistently for all four quarters rather than bad for two and good for two. I got what I wanted. They played bad for all four. Great. Actually, that's a bit unfair — If you'd have told me that they'd hold the Jags to 13 points, I'd have said — swell, chalk up a W. We've seen this sort of strange fizzle before. I don't get it any more now.
Each of their previous losses had come on the last play of the game, but it seemed pretty clear that they weren't really going to be having much of a shot come the fourth quarter in this one. Now they've lost three in a row and the team that was 4-1 (and shoulda been 5-0) is a distant memory.
Can October be over now?
