Eagles on a Roll
Carson Wentz kept rocking and the Eagles keep winning.
The big bad Bears defense came to Philly and got beat. Plain and simple. We are starting to see with our own eyes that Mitchell Trubitsky is probably not the guy at Quarterback. On the other hand, it's pretty evident that Carson Wentz is as the Eagles win another one at home in front of a crazy but happy crowd.
Carson Wentz was 26/39 for 239 with one touchdown, not great, but enough to get the W.
The rematch of last year's playoff loss by the Bears wound up as the same result minus the double doink.
Sports Illustrated of course pulled no punches on their assessment:
The Bears spent a good amount of time this offseason reliving their 16-15 wildcard playoff loss to the Eagles last January. Head coach Matt Nagy had the team rewatch the game multiple times during OTAs, as a motivational tactic to remind them how close they were to advancing in the playoffs. They re-watched the end, the painful double doink last-second field goal miss, as a tactic to generate productive anger. But this week leading up to a rematch with the Eagles, Bears players weren’t interested in looking back anymore.
“I just remember we lost,” linebacker Danny Trevathan said Wednesday at his locker. “They are a new team, we are a new team.”
The Bears are a new, and worse, team, but they have the same underlying problem as they did last year against Philadelphia. Just like last time, Chicago rallied late, and the reason it fell short of completing a comeback is the same as it was last January.
It's Bye week time and it would be great to Chat with Carson live on the air as he comes by this way to hunt... Hear that Carson?
