Philadelphia Eagles Throw Away Game to 49ers; Are They on Path To Draft Luck?

Andy Reid and Juan Castillo should both be fired on the spot following an embarrassing 24-23 loss at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field.

Reid still can't figure out this short-yardage thing and Castillo doesn't know how to utilize any of his players, including three Pro Bowl cornerbacks.

The Eagles are now more likely to land Andrew Luck in next year's draft than winning the Super Bowl this year.

Let that sink in for a little bit.

Before the year started, Vince Young proclaimed the Eagles were a "Dream Team." Young is not the smartest guy on the block and he doesn't know any better than to keep his mouth shut, but it was hard to argue against him.

Philadelphia added Pro Bowl cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomugh and Dominique Rodges-Cromartie. They signed defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins and defensive end Jason Babin. Ronnie Brown was a great addition along the goal line and Young was good insurance for Young.

Babin and Jenkins are putting up good numbers but can't do a thing against the run. 

Asomugha and Rodgers-Cromartie can't make plays due to Castillo having them play zone.

Brown has been a nightmare, especially when he thought he could throw the ball on 3rd and goal only to have it ruled a fumble.

And Young can't get onto the field because of an injury and his inability to learn the offense.

We didn't even get to the horrid offensive line and linebackers.

Despite all of the weaknesses and players not performing, it seemed like the Eagles could still win 10 games because the talent in the NFL is simply not that good. As it stands now, it's hard to imagine the Eagles play .500 over the final 12 games of the season.

The only upside to the Eagles tanking it? Reid and Castillo might get the boot and Luck becomes an Eagle.

Note: Following each prediction is a running record.
