NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Super Bowl Philadelphia Eagles enter Week 8 facing a closing playoff window and they’ve just received more bad injury news. We’ve asked a few times now, is it time to hit the panic button? We discuss this on The Kist & Solak Show while also digging into what got us here, including a myriad of injuries, blown leads, and scattershot execution.

One factor adding to the anxiety surrounding the Eagles is the recent Derek Barnett injury news. He’ll miss the rest of the 2018 campaign and need shoulder surgery, which takes a bite out of the Eagles front four rotation. Barnett’s biggest impact this season came against the run where Pro Football Focus ranked him 7th among defensive ends in their Run Stop % metric.

One question we posed to you and will answer with our thoughts is this trade scenario from Daniel Jeremiah:

Neither of us particularly liked this trade either, but we did come up with some different options for the Eagles that would make it more palatable. Either way, decisions are going to have to be made at the outside cornerback position this off-season, so the question is will the Eagles make an aggressive move now to head that off at the pass?

We also talked about the Dallas Cowboys trading a first round pick for wide receiver Amari Cooper and dug into the film of the Eagles 21-17 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
