The Eagles Must Stop People From Being Critical Of Them.

Posted October 08, 2012

  People can claim mortal locks. The few can ignore reality, overvalue the talent of the Eagles roster, praise ridiculous comments by players, and lose their credibility with every new post all they want, but the majority aren't going to ever be that way. You see the majority of people will never ASSume the Eagles will somehow just turn it around until they do exactly that. People are critical of the Eagles, because the Eagles are making it easy to be critical of them.

  Most people want to see this team improve  now and aren't interested in holding imaginary lines until they do so. The Eagles must improve on the field if they want to be considered a true championship caliber team or the only "Mortal Lock" will be that come next season the Eagles will have a new coaching staff and a new quarterback. It's time to stop talking and start working for this football team. A coach who has been on the same team for over a decade shouldn't be a work in progress. A quarterback in his 30s shouldn't be making rookie mistakes. A defensive line that lead the league in sacks shouldn't be this bad at getting to the quarterback. An offense averaging only 16 points a game will not win a championship in the NFL today. An offense struggling to score points can't afford to be giving away points in the Red Zone, but the Eagles are the best in the league at doing that so far. In case the line holders were wondering that stat is called a trend.

  That isn't a good trend. That isn't a dynasty building trend. That isn't a trend people can guarantee a championship on. It is a trend that can and will get players benched and coaches fired. This team has gone too far off excuses. So many of them stem from last season to include blaming fans for losses. That's the problem with this team in a nutshell. They are too focused on what to say and what people are saying as a whole and there are not focusing on what they should be doing. A lack of fundamentals in sports is  directly connected with a lack of focus. Even Semi-pro players ought to know that.

  So before people want to criticize fans for being critical of the Eagles, maybe they should look inward first. After all many of those who are now critical of the fans for being critical of the Eagles, were far worse to the Eagles when they got rid of McNabb. One of those line holders in fact called for a boycott of the Eagles.You can't hold the line when you want to boycott it.
