So What Have We Learned?

Posted October 21, 2013
The Eagles best two options at quarterback are highly unreliable due to being injury prone. Barkley isn't close to being ready and his lollipop arm strength will never let him become any better than say Chad Pennington in the NFL. For a backup that's fine, but for a starter..... I don't think he has enough ability to take us anywhere. So what does this mean? At the surface the Eagles can still salvage their season and even win the division, but it will be at the expense at a chance for one of these quarterbacks. Of course this teams problems isn't as simple as adding another quarterback. There are several holes at receiver, offensive line, tight end, outside linebacker, inside linebacker, corner, and safeties to say the least. The kicker seems to miss at least one a game. Whatever the Eagles decide to do they would be wise not to trade picks to move up in the draft, because one player will not fix all of the problems. If Chip Kelly is truly the genius he's been made out to be, then he had better find a way to incorporate the best skills of his players into his schemes. On one play I saw Brandon Graham covering Jason Witten ( considering he was killing Kendricks and Allen all day I shouldn't have worried) and I thought oh sh##! Witten didn't catch it, but there were so many other breakdowns on the play they left the fullback wide open.
