The Philadelphia Eagles were as close to perfect as most NFL teams will ever get in their 54-11 romp over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night. It was a total team effort from top to bottom, leaving very little negative you could say about anybody.
In fact, you might say the Eagles earned straight A’s.
In my weekly report card grades, I score each individual position on some fairly simple criteria. “A” is virtually mistake-free, “B” is good, “C” is average, “D” is passable and “F” is a complete failure to carry out basic tasks.
But honestly, it was next to impossible to find anything to deduct points for in the Eagles’ performance. Nick Foles quarterbacked the game flawlessly. Philadelphia’s offense doubled up Chicago in total yards 514-257. The Birds dominated the action in practically every way imaginable.
So here is a first for the 2013 season: A clean report card, one that head coach Chip Kelly will be proud to post on the refrigerator.
