Eagles at Redskins, Sunday, November 18, 2012 No stud this week, but Cooper did have a few good catches. That was so bad I seriously don’t even know what to write. On the upside, we had a great weekend. Chef Spouse’s best friend Steelers Transplant and his new fiancee were in town, and we went out for a really nice dinner Saturday night and then spent all day Sunday hanging out cooking, talking, laughing and drinking champagne to celebrate the engagement. The best part? Excellent distraction from the game. The best part of the game? Uh….when it ended? Both teams needed this game. Only one team seemed aware of the fact. And if you’re wondering, it wasn’t the Birds. Nick Foles looked OK when he wasn’t throwing it or fumbling it away. Then again, how different is that than Mike Vick has played all year? And yes, the offensive line is a mess. I know. But wouldn’t you think the coaches might make some adjustments to the playcalling or protection schemes as a result? Apparently not. The Eagles have the same defensive front four as a year ago. Last year? 50 sacks. First in the league. This year? Not quite dead last, but only the Titans, Jaguars and Raiders are worse. Insult to injury? McCoy’s concussion on a totally meaningless play. Some of the other Eagles bloggers have theorized that part of the problem is that the locker room is full of guys who, while they’re talented football players, have no tradition of winning. And no matter how good you are personally, if you haven’t played on teams with the expectation of winning, you don’t know how to do what it takes. If the team was losing by a few points each week, I’d buy that. But they’re not – they’re getting blown out week after week at this point. If it wasn’t so pathetic, it might actually be a little funny. Clearly, this is it for Andy Reid. I’m guessing Mike Vick goes, too, at the end of the season. Possibly Nnamdi Asomugha. And the entire offensive line. Hell, it could be a fire sale, when they blow the whole thing up and start over. And right now, that sounds to me like just the thing. addthis_url = 'http%3A%2F%2Fchicksinthehuddle.com%2F2012%2F11%2F19%2Fstick-a-fork-in-em%2F'; addthis_title = 'Stick+a+Fork+in+%26%238216%3BEm'; addthis_pub = '';
