The Eagles finally snapped their four-game losing streak Sunday with a 20-13 defeat of the Washington Redskins. That’s the good news. The bad news is, it wasn’t pretty, and it was more like Washington played horribly rather than the Eagles playing all that well.
Some areas improved but this team is still a massive disappointment that needs to improve across the board. It will be interesting to see how they rebound coming off the bye — they have historically played well following the off week during the Andy Reid era.
Reid said the players would be given off until next Monday, and that the coaches and even he would be taking a few days off as well. It’s probably a smart move as everyone needs to come to terms with where they’re at and recharge for a push towards relevance.
With prime time games coming up against Dallas and Chicago post-bye, the Eagles are going to be under an even brighter spotlight. If they badly crash and burn on a national stage things are going to be even uglier than they’ve been.
