TO PROTECT AND SERVE

PERHAPS I’m crazy, but I still think the Offensive Line is in need of a lot of work. I know everyone else wants to immediately point to our Pro Bowlers, but I can’t take my eye off the 46 sacks we allowed in 16 games last year.

There’s a poll on the Eagles website today (Sunday 2/16/14):

 

Now clearly I made a bee line for the top option, but most fans went in a very different direction:

 

This indicates that 73% of fans have no problem with how often our QB’s took sacks, not to mention hits or hurries. Put another way 7 out of 10 fans think that 3 sacks per game is Just dandy. Two Pro Bowlers. Add another wideout.

FYI: Nick Foles can’t throw touches from crutches, or with another broken wrist. If he truly is the franchise, the Eagles had better be about the business of improving QB protection.
