What a terrible game. This is the lowest of the low. The Philadelphia Eagles were destroyed again; this time by the struggling Washington Redskins. The final score of this game was 31-6, and this was game, set, and match for the Philadelphia Eagles 2012 season. The birds now sit at 3-7 and find themselves in the cellar of the NFC East for the first time in a long time. The worst part is that we still have to sit through six more games of this junk. But hey, the players don’t seem to care about losing, so why should we? Offense: The Eagles could only muster a pathetic six points against the lowly Redskins defense, which ranks near the bottom of many defensive statistical categories. Rookie quarterback Nick Foles looked like, well, a rookie. Foles completed 21 passes for 204 yards and threw two interceptions. His first interception came on the third play of the game, and the Redskins scored two plays later. It was all down hill from there, and that was with about 13 minutes left to go in the first quarter. The abysmal performance was not all Nick Foles’ fault. The offensive line was pathetic yet again. Foles ran for his life nearly every play. Offensive line coach Howard Mudd looks on helplessly as his line struggles to block the lowly Washington Redskins. The few times the line provided good protection was tainted by holding calls. I understand that four of the five starters are hurt, but this is just embarrassing. I’m five foot seven and 165 pounds but I could definitely block better than these bums on the offensive line. Heck, all I would have to do is get in the way of the defender and I would be doing a better job than these guys. LeSean McCoy rushed for 45 yards on just 15 carries. He was carted off the field with one minute left in the game and has been diagnosed with a concussion. Why was he even on the field with a minute left in the game when the Eagles were down 31-6? Head coach Andy Reid explained in his press conference that they were trying to come back and win the game. Come on, man. I guess that’s the right attitude, but I have a better chance of walking on my hands from Philadelphia to San Francisco than the Eagles coming back in the final minute of this game. The outside receivers were non-existent in this game. DeSean Jackson caught two passes for five yards. Jeremy Maclin did not catch any passes and was targeted only three times. LeSean McCoy was actually the leading receiver for the Eagles, catching six passes for 67 yards.  Riley Cooper chipped in with five catches for 61 yards and Brent Celek caught five passes for 42 yards. Grade: F Defense: The defense was just as bad as the offense. Robert Griffin III looked like a superstar, completing 14 passes for 200 yards and threw four touchdown passes. The Eagles defense, however, made it easy for him. The low point of the game was a 61 yard touchdown pass to Santana Moss, who jumped over both of the Eagles safeties to make the catch. The second worst play of the game was for the defense was a 49 yard touchdown pass to Aldrick Robinson. There was no one within 10 yards of Robinson, who has been the third string receiver for the Redskins all year. The run defense wasn’t much better. RG3 rushed for 84 yards on 12 carries. Alfred Morris rushed for 76 yards on 20 carries.  The Redskins could have rushed for -10 yards and they still would have blown out the Eagles. Somewhere out there, Juan Castillo is laughing. Grade: F It is now a pretty safe bet that Andy Reid will not be back next year. If the Eagles really want to get back to winning, getting rid of Andy Reid will not be nearly enough. I have never seen an Eagles team with players that just don’t care if they win or lose. There is no effort out there. The Eagles front office must blow up this entire team and start from scratch. There is only about five or six starters that I would keep on this team. The end of the season cannot come soon enough for Eagles fans. Hang in there, we only have six games left.
