Time for the Philadelphia Eagles to Face the Music Following Their 6-31 Debacle in the Nation’s Capitol

The Philadelphia Eagles lost today to the Washington Redskins 6-31.  The loss drops the Eagles to 3-7 and virtually eliminates the birds from any chance at the playoffs.  Robert Griffin III was incredible all afternoon, running for big gains, throwing touchdown passes, protecting the ball, the rookie did it all.  The Eagles defense had no answers and neither did the offense.  Rookie Nick Foles struggled during his first start.  Its hard to accurately assess how Foles played because of how poor the offensive line played.  Foles was under constant pressure and his play reflected that.  The Eagles had too many penalties, turnovers, and broken coverages for an NFL football team.  Its sad to say but the Eagles are one of the worst teams in the NFL this season.  Despite the criticism of Michael Vick, he at least could use his legs to escape the pressure.  Foles is a sitting duck behind the weak offensive line of the Eagles.  The Eagles were outplayed and outcoached in every aspect of the game.
