At 3-6, the postseason is still a mathematical possibility. But let's just face it. From what we have seen so far this season, the Eagles are not making the playoffs this year. Losing to the Cardinals, and the John Skelton-led Cardinals, is inexcusable and this team still needs to play teams such as the New York Giants, New England Patriots, and New York Jets.
How did the Eagles wind up in this mess? Instead of entertaining Super Bowl dreams, we are now considering 2012 draft prospects.
The most popular reaction is to blame the coaching. And there is plenty of blame to go around for them. It is their responsibility to get the players up to speed and ready to win ball games.
But it is not just the coaching that has led the Eagles down this hole. It is also the players themselves.
Now past the mid-season point, it is time to evaluate each unit and how they have done.
