Loss for words: Philadelphia Eagles’ humiliating defeat in Green Bay

Share

Lambeau Field was not kind to the Eagles, and the same treatment brutal should be expected should the team make the playoffs.

Almost 24 hours following the Philadelphia Eagles’ humiliating 53-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, I’m still struggling to find the words to describe the game.

So let’s see what others are saying. It’s worth noting that even the harshest words don’t come close to fully describing how awful the game was. Continue reading ‘Loss for words: Philadelphia Eagles’ humiliating defeat in Green Bay’

Philadelphia Eagles look to end Green Bay Packers’ Lambeau winning streak

Can the Philadelphia Eagles put an end to Aaron Rodgers’ streak of perfection at home?

The Philadelphia Eagles face a massive test in playing the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field this Sunday. Can the Birds challenge the conventional wisdom that the Pack just doesn’t lose at home when Aaron Rodgers is under center?

It will be tough, to say the least. Rodgers is the picture of perfection at home. He has gone 286 consecutive passes without an interception at Lambeau. That means that the last time it occurred was in 2012, Week 13. And because of Rodgers’ flawless play in Green Bay, the team has a home winning streak of 15, which dates back to their 2012 season opener.

Then there is this nugget:

The Packers average just under 42 points per game at home, tops in the NFL, and they’ve outscored opponents at Lambeau by 101 points, also the NFL’s largest home win margin. Continue reading ‘Philadelphia Eagles look to end Green Bay Packers’ Lambeau winning streak’

All eyes on Mark Sanchez as Philadelphia Eagles face Carolina Panthers

Share

As with any game, there are many important aspects of the Philadelphia Eagles on which to focus this Monday night. But who are we kidding: Tonight’s game against the Carolina Panthers is all about Mark Sanchez.

Every step he takes, every move he makes, we’ll be watching him. Every throw. Every decision. Can Sanchez ably lead the Birds for the six to eight weeks that Nick Foles is expected to be out with a broken collarbone? If so, is he the quarterback on which we should hitch our trailers for an even longer stretch of time? If Sanchez can avoid the turnovers that became an all-too prevalent part of Foles’ performance this season and turn in a series of consistent performances, the answer could be yes. But those are big “ifs”. Sanchez has his own history of turning the ball over to overcome. Since entering the league in 2009, the former USC quarterback has thrown for more interceptions (71) than touchdowns (70) in his career.

Mark Sanchez takes the keys of the Philadelphia Eagles offense for 6-8 weeks after Nick Foles injury

Significant injuries have unfortunately overshadowed the Philadelphia Eagles’ 31-21 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday. The leaders of both the team’s offense and defense went down with injuries, with Nick Foles suffering a broken collarbone and DeMeco Ryans suffering a season-ending ruptured Achilles.

Foles will not require surgery for his broken left clavicle. However, he will be out of game action for an estimated 6-8 weeks. With his unsteady performance in the 2014 season, many are more than ready to hand over the keys of the Eagles offense to Mark Sanchez to see how he fairs.
