And with that, there goes the Eagles #1 corner. Possibly for some of next year, too. Starting safety behemoth of a player Rodney McLoed was already out for the year. #2 and #3 corners Jalen Mills and Sidney Jones aren’t playing right now because of injury. The secondary overachieved tremendously last season (remember when they were supposed to be one of, if not the worst unit in the NFL?), and have obviously came back to Earth this year. The loss of Patrick Robinson to the Saints didn’t help, but the addition of a FT Sidney Jones was encouraging to say the least. Welp, now we got the likes of practice squad warriors Chandon Sullivan stepping in to start with guys like Rasul Douglas who can’t even cover his own dick. Trading for Patrick Peterson or Ha Ha Clinton Dix would’ve been lovely, but twas not to be. Now we’re officially stuck in the shitter.
I said it before, and I’ll say it again, if the hapless Cowboys did what they did to the Eagles defense last night then next week the Saints may put up 100. I wish that’s an exaggeration. It isn’t. God Save The Eagles.
