Getting into the holiday spirit, Brandon Gowton and I aired our grievances, Festivus-style, against the Eagles' offense, and conducted a Thanksgiving food mock draft. Here's what we discussed in BGN Radio episode No. 94:
Eagles vs. Seahawks:
The defense was good. Seattle helped with a few gift miscues (Wilson bad throw, DK Metcalf drop), but withstanding 5 turnovers by the offense and only giving up 17 points against an MVP candidate is impressive no matter what. The offense, not so much.
Airing of grievances:
QB: Wentz had the worst game of his career. The receivers aren’t helping, but the fumbles are now a huge issue once again.
RB: There's something the Eagles don’t seem to trust about Sanders as a runner, since he’s barely getting any carries relative to his number of snaps.
WR: They're the worst in the NFL, and maybe the worst in Eagles history?
TE: Dallas Goedert has been disappointing so far.
OT: Dillard was awful at RT, as he thought he would be.
iOL: Jason Kelce not elite this year? Brandon Brooks’ anxiety, Isaac Seumalo better after his gross Week 2 performance.
Eagles vs. Dolphins
The Dolphins have a boatload of injuries, especially in the secondary. Does it even matter against this bad Eagles offense?
Their run defense is also bad, as is their OL.
Fitzpatrick did light up the Eagles in Tampa last year.
NFL Picks / NFC East talk
Eagles are wasting what should be a glorious time for them, coming off Super Bowl, and playing in a joke of a division.
Cowboys (-7): It’s BS that they get a home Thanksgiving game every year.
Eagles (-9.5): Jumped up from (-7.5).
Thanksgiving mock draft
Objectively speaking, my Thanksgiving team of foods would destroy Brandon's.
