The 2011 season started with so much promise for the Philadelphia Eagles is now just one more loss from ending. Now at 3-5, the Eagles can't afford to lose another game right now as they trail the Giants by three games in the division and two games to potential NFC Wild Card teams, the Falcons and Bears, who have already beat the Eagles and thus would win the tiebreaker over them.
Big name free agents and trades from the offseason have all been utter disappointments. The defense hasn't gotten any better since giving up 35 points to the Falcons in Week 2, and the offense is still turnover-prone despite having an elite running back who hasn't fumbled the ball yet.
This team is unclutch, undisciplined and unable to beat any playoff-caliber teams. Maybe they are still a year away from putting it all together, but for this season they have too many problems to overcome. Barring an eight-game winning streak to finish out the season or a complete collapse by NFC East leading New York Giants, 2011 is a lost season.
