Eytan Shander: Forget being deadline sellers, Eagles must go for division title

Here we are, Eagles fans. Locked in a miserable division and facing a quick turnaround on a short week. It seems like even with Andy Dalton showing his true colors, there is a sense of giving up that’s permeated some of the fanbase. That will not be me. I see no value in tanking – mainly because you can’t tank in the NFL – to improve draft status. Not with this team and certainly not with this current division.

Eytan Shander: If the Eagles can't win the NFC East this year, it's time to pack it in

Let’s stop firing everyone after every loss. I know it’s a huge ask from us, we shoot first and field questions after the fact. Like something out of one of those car insurance commercials, “it’s what we do.” But let’s be fair to the situation at hand, and truly add all of the facts in evidence.

Eytan Shander: Are the Eagles bad, or just injured?

Nobody has any idea what identity the Eagles have, nor what the future holds for this season. Not a single person, including the people responsible for making this machine work.

Eytan Shander: Did we trade an Eagles Super Bowl for every team sucking for years after?

The Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl, the Philadelphia Phillies signed Bryce Harper to a mega deal, the Philadelphia Flyers finally found their goalie, and the Philadelphia 76ers were set to make multiple deep runs.

Eytan Shander: Face it, Eagles fans: Carson Wentz is a one-hit wonder

The immediate connotation of the phrase "one-hit wonder" is negative. Clearly anyone with only one hit – as amazing as that song may sound – was never talented enough to really do anything with it. While that may be true for the majority of artists who wear that unfortunate title, there are a couple of exceptions who break through, creating a new category – the two- or three-hit wonder.

Eytan Shander: Carson Wentz lacks feel, Doug Pederson outsmarts himself

The Philadelphia Eagles blew a 17-point lead against the Washington Football Team. That’s it. That’s the column. What more do you want me to write? What else is there to really discuss about how brutal of a loss it was? It was the most embarrassing loss of the first week around the entire NFL. Even the Jaguars won!

Eytan Shander: Eagles need Miles Sanders and Jalen Reagor to live up to the hype

There is really no other way to put this — and please know that I get just how absurd it might sound if you say it out loud — but there is a ridiculous amount of pressure on two young Eagles players this season. Yes, ridiculous, and it comes with the threat of a rather large domino effect if one or both can’t live up to the hype. You may think it rather strange to put so much pressure on a rookie wide receiver or a second-year running back, but this is the situation the Eagles have set up, for better or worse.

Eytan Shander: The Eagles aren't doing Carson Wentz any favors heading into 2020 season

Once again, we find ourselves building up the most unrealistic expectations — expectations we then watch come up short, leaving us to wonder what could have been. This year — this ridiculously crazy year — you’re off the hook.

Eytan Shander: Sixers should trade Ben Simmons — not because they want to, but because they have to

The Philadelphia 76ers are an unmitigated disaster right now — no thanks to ownership and the toxic culture created since the league-sanctioned ousting of Sam Hinkie. Once again, the deck of the Titanic will be shuffled around, making sure there will be difficulty in pinpointing who is actually responsible for all of these terrible decisions. So instead of pounding the pavement with my bare knuckles for the next 600 words, let me offer a solution to getting out of this real trouble.

Eytan Shander: Carter Hart is Philly sports' MVP right now and it's not even close

Carter Hart is the most valuable athlete to play a sport in Philadelphia — maybe in the last 15 years.
