There is just no way to sugarcoat just how bad the Eagles looked in last Sunday's 20-10 loss to rival Dallas. You would probably have to go all the way back to the 1998 season to see the Birds play that bad under the direction of head coach Ray Rhodes on their way to a 3-13 record. The early prognosis of Chip Kelly's new-look Eagles in their first two games makes you wonder if this team can top that mark this season.
I am going to remain optimistic that all of the new faces on this Eagles' roster will be able to eventually gel as a team to still make a title run in what has quickly become one of the weakest divisions in the NFL. That is not the 2-0 Cowboys fault, but with Tony Romo and Dez Bryant set to miss the next few months,they become a very average team. Both 1-1 Washington and the 0-2 New York Giants are very much in the mix and the winner of this Thursday night's showdown probably has the inside track to a NFC East title. The good news for us Philly fans is that this season's title race should remain close. The bad news is that we may have to endure quite a bit of ugly football along the way.
