Sunday’s loss to the Raiders was downright embarrassing. We all know that already. The Eagles know that too, and I’m sure they’re going to hear about it big time in film this week. However, the best thing they can do is learn from the mistakes they made and then just forget Sunday ever happened.
The Eagles are about to hit the toughest part of their schedule so thy can’t have any chips on their shoulders. They need to focus on the Washington Redskins and picking up their first divisional win of the season. Playing in the national spotlight of Monday Night Football, everyone will be expecting the Eagles to bounce back and prove the team that played the Raiders last week isn’t the real Eagles. We all saw the flashes of brilliance earlier this year and know the Birds are truly capable of doing some damage. However, there are still going to be nay-sayers, and this is well deserved. This team team is a giant question mark.
With the upcoming schedule the way that it is, the Eagles need complete focus going into every game from here on out. Against the Raiders, it seemed as though no one had their hand in the game. They were sloppy and made stupid mistakes. If they want to be a playoff contender, the Eagles need to do a total 180 from the team that showed up against Oakland. If this doesn’t happen, we’re in for a long rest of the season and a lot of disappointment.
