Eagles-Rams Final Score: Is Philadelphia a bad 4-1?

Let's discuss.

The Philadelphia Eagles are 4-1. That much is not up for debate.

What does seem to be up for debate is the legitimacy of Philadelphia's record. It has not been an easy road to 4-1 for the Eagles. Philadelphia's 34-28 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday is just a recent reminder of that. The Eagles jumped out to a 34-7 lead with only 2:15 remaining in the third quarter. Then the Rams made it 34-28 with 4:41 left in the fourth quarter. St. Louis even had a chance to take the lead with under two minutes remaining but couldn't get the job done. The Eagles outlasted St. Louis, but the team made it way closer than it needed to be.

Philadelphia has been playing games close all season. The first two weeks featured comeback efforts against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts. Philadelphia held off a late Washington comeback attempt in Week 3 to win. Week 4 saw the Eagles lose a close game after getting out to a 21-10 lead.

So are the Eagles total frauds or actually good? This is a question that was asked at Bleeding Green Nation earlier this week and there still doesn't seem to be a clear answer. So let's debate even further.

Are the Eagles a good 4-1? A bad 4-1? Or is this just a dumb question entirely? Vote below and make your case.
