The 2011 Philadelphia Eagles can’t even put the “fun” in “dysfunctional.” That’s because this team is just plain bad and there is no fun in that.
Actually, referring to the 2011 Eagles as a “team” is something of a misnomer. If you were to look up the word “team” in the dictionary, you’d see ”2011 Philadelphia Eagles” listed under “antonyms.”
Before this season began, I wrote an article about how important it is, and how hard it would be, for this group of players and coaches to become a team.

Andy Reid: Has arguably the best running back in the game. Never uses him. His defensive playcalling (even if he’s not directly involved) in terrible, often leaving the secondary scrambling to try and mark receivers for extraordinary amounts of time. He’s taken a team that has spent the GDP of a small nation on their roster...

He also gives his insight on the quarterback situation of the Houston Texans as well as the latest Tim Tebow gossip and what the Broncos should consider offensively in upcoming weeks.
I happened to be on air with former NFL players Jonathan Ogden and Stan White a few days ago on WBAL-AM, and they both told me it takes at least four days after a game for most players just to get their bodies back to equilibrium in time to prepare for the next game...
