Well, it’s the second week in a row where the win wasn’t pretty. But again, it was a win. And that’s what matters most. How fortunate are the Eagles to be 2-0 after 9 turnovers in those two wins? How does that happen? In any case, it’s safe to assume the Eagles faithful is relieved to be 2-0. Because traditionally if you lose the turnover battle, you lose the game. Eagles are -2 when it comes to the turnover battle in the first two games. Let’s try to get on the plus side of that next week can we?
Overall I’m happy with the Eagles so far. Aside from the sloppy play that get’s ourselves in the negative side of the turnover battle of course. By the numbers, Vick had a better game against a better defense this week. Shady’s fumbles are uncharacteristic of him. Two games in a row where he fumbles? He’s usually sure handed and protects the ball very well. Whatever the cause of it is this year needs to be corrected.
All together the Eagles are on a six game win streak. Ten if you choose to include the 4-0 preseason. I like how that sounds. I feel that the Eagles are on the right path. Of course there needs to be some things that need to be worked on. Especially the turnovers because you will pull those wins out every now and again but history shows it’s not in your favor to lose that battle. Can you imagine how much better the last two Eagles games would have been without all of those turnovers?
Up next is Arizona. I’m not going to take them lightly. After all, they did beat a good New England team today. They are a team that the Eagles can definitely beat. Just NO MORE TURNOVERS!
