I guess it's not always sunny in Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Eagles skidded to a 1-4 record to begin the season, but after winning two straight following a bye week, things were looking brighter in Philly and fans were thinking playoffs in a fairly wide open division.
However, after two straight losses have put the Eagles at 3-6, things suddenly don't look so sunny.
A week after losing to the Chicago Bears 30-24 on Monday Night Football, the Eagles regressed again, losing to back-up quarterback John Skelton and the Arizona Cardinals 21-17.
The Eagles secondary (remember, the one with three of the best cornerbacks in the league?) allowed Skelton to throw for 315 yards and three touchdowns, two to Larry Fitzgerald, who totaled 146 yards on seven receptions.
What's worse, the Eagles couldn't move the ball on a defense that has been steamrolled by most opponents this year.
LeSean McCoy had 81 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries, but Michael Vick completed just 16 of 34 passes for 128 yards and two interceptions.
Maybe next year, Eagles fans.
