So far in the Eagles current season I have been more on the impressed side when it comes to players rather than on the disappointment side. Still I will try to come up with five guys who I expected more out of who are failing to deliver. It should be noted that any player who is no longer on the roster I will not comment about, but there is at least one former Eagle I'm glad is gone, because his departure has lead to my first good impression. Bennie Logan: has been a major upgrade to the defensive line. He is getting a lot of pressure in the middle collapsing the pocket on pass downs and he's occupying space on some rundowns to assist the linebackers. He's been a major improvement to this overall improving defense. Trent Cole: was thought to be washed up, but for the first time in Trent's career he's getting sacks late. Usually he starts to wear down by this point in the years, but this season he's starting to turn it up a notch. He even had some great coverage on Fritz during the Williams interception when he came into his zone. Riley Cooper: has become a legit number two option for this team since Foles has been inserted into the lineup and he's doing damage to single coverage. He's going out his way to get the football and he fighting for extra yardage. He's been a total surprise and he's making it very hard for the Eagles to get rid of him. Nate Allen: just seems to be getting better each week. It started slowly for him, but he looks as if he's starting to get his cover skills back, and he is gaining far more confidence in his play. It has been late, but better late than never. Nick Foles: it's hard to choose many QBs over Nick and his play right now. The man is just doing his thing at a high level, and it isn't a coincidence the Eagles have been winning with him under center. He may not be the best athlete on the Eagles, but HE IS THE BEST QUARTERBACK ON THE EAGLES, and it's not even close.
Honorable mentions Donnie Jones, Ced Thorton, Billy Davis, Fletcher Cox, and Demeco Ryans.
The five guys I am disappointed with starts with Mike Vick: who once again has given people false hope in his abilities, and once again has led this team to more questions than answers. There may not have been a player in the Eagles history who has done so little, but gains so much fanfare. James Casey: sure did seem like a great signing at the beginning of the season, but he's been a major bust so far. Todd Herremans: seems to be playing better as of late, but he's been somewhat of a letdown moving back inside to guard. The Eagles should consider upgrading this position in the offseason. Patrick Chung: if he's not hurt he's slamming into his own players and giving up big scores. He slammed into Boykin on the Fitzgerald touchdown, and he slammed into Williams on another play where Williams chewed him out. Dude has been another free agent disappointment. Bryce Brown: it's really hard to call a 7th round pick a disappointment, but he really has been. When he's moving North to South he's a far more effective runner, but he's trying too hard to bounce plays to the outside against NFL defenses. Maybe his indecisiveness is due to his rawness, but the Eagles should look to draft a replacement for him this offseason. You know after they win the Super Bowl.
Honorable mentions Chip Kelly's clock management, 3rd quarter play calling, Jason Avant, and McCoy dancing too much.
