The Philadelphia Eagles are heading into their bye with a 3-3 record.
They’re not that good. The Eagles are poorly coached, their offensive line can’t protect their injury-prone quarterback who can’t hold on to the ball, their defense is overrated and their secondary is thin on the depth chart.
For the second consecutive week, the Eagles defense could not stop their opposition’s comeback drive.
Although there is a tremendous amount of frustration about Michael Vick’s turnovers, that is not what cost the team the game.
Again, in the fourth quarter, the Eagles were ahead and the defense blew the lead.
This week, against the Lions, the Eagles defense blew a 10-point lead with six minutes to go in the fourth quarter.
Unlike the Birds’ previous losses, there is no disputing that this week’s loss is solely on the shoulders of the defense.
Moreover, if the defense isn’t 100 percent to blame for the loss, a case could be made that the Eagles offensive line had a heavy hand in it.
The following slideshow will outline the Eagles’ best and worst Week 6 performers.
