We're not mad, we're just disappointed. Actually, check that we're very mad online.

Don't blame the refs, blame the team.

This is the first the Eagles coaching staff lied to us about a rookie being ready to play. Big V's debut was nothing less than awful


What do you do first? Find a new tackle or find a new WR?

Malcolm Jenkins let Washington get ahead and also kept the Eagles in the game. Mr. Even Steven

The defense decided they didn't have to tackle. Maybe the saw a ghost that looked like Billy Davis.

That was Doug Pederson's first poorly coached game.

Taking a timeout and punting on 4th & 24 belongs in the Big Ten and not in the NFL.

Washington, New York & Dallas all win. The Steelers lose to Miami. The Eagles aren't who we thought they were?

Wendell Smallwood was a very nice bright spot this week.

Besides Carson Wentz, Lane Johnson is/was the most important part of this offense and it showed.

More missed opportunities in the red zone. The Eagles love dropping TD passes.

Please do not give us the "Well, this was supposed to be a bad year anyway." The Eagles proved that they could execute, play really well and have a fantastic rookie QB. Don't excuse bad play.

The Eagles have invested a lot into this defensive line and it's not getting home.

With the Bennie Logan injury you can really see that depth is also really thin on the defensive line.

Pay Brandon Graham?

Vinny Curry has been pretty disappointing so far.

Connor Barwin, we love you but you just don't belong at DE.

If the players "we're so pissed off" about the loss to Detroit, why didn't they play like it?

Jalen Mills was up and down, but more than anything... you are not Dikembe Mutombo. Stop wagging your finger.

There is no need to panic yet but the schedule is not favorable. And if the Eagles WRs couldn't find separation against Washington, what are they going to against the Vikings?

The (F**k) Dallas Cowboys are the team to beat right now. Dak & Zeke are really good.

Pederson saying he didn't want to ruin the confidence of Big V by pulling him in the game is fine. But not adjusting and calling plays away from Kerrigan are a problem

Twitter question: Do the Eagles make a call to the Browns for Joe Thomas?

Random and final thoughts

We'll be back at The Grog in Bryn Mawr on Tuesday night! Come drink beers and be a part of the podcast!
