NFL: Carolina Panthers at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles don’t have a game this week since it’s their bye. The team is using this break to do some self-scouting and rest up for the rest of the stretch run.

But before we turn the page to the second half of the season, we should take stock of how the Eagles got to this point. That’s exactly what John Stolnis and I did on the latest episode of BGN Radio. In addition to handing out grades to key positions groups and coaches, we also discussed:

  • Our thoughts on the Golden Tate trade — did the Eagles give up too much? And how does the offense look moving forward?
  • Should the Eagles have traded for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix instead?
  • The reason to have hope the Eagles can make a run in their final eight games
  • A nuanced evaluation of Jim Schwartz and the defense
  • Looking at the Eagles’ (and other NFC East teams) remaining games
  • Ring the bell: NFL picks against the spread
  • And much more!
