I have been one of Carson Wentz's biggest critics this season but there is something that became exceptionally clear today: Carson Wentz is not the problem with this football team. In a game where Carson did not turn the ball over once, didn't play hero ball and force anything, and genuinely controlled the field, the Eagles laid an absolute dud of an effort. The coaching staff of the Philadelphia Eagles did not prepare during the bye week to be competitive and it showed. It is taking me more of an effort to write this article than it did for the Eagles to take the field today. Here are the grades for each of the positions of the Philadelphia Eagles:


Coaches: F

This team had NO FIRE. They were 0-9 on 3rd down. They were called for 10 penalties. No turnovers and no takeaways. Forcing Jalen Hurts onto the field when Carson was finally getting some rhythm only to have him run the exact same play he always does. Going for 2 points after every touchdown. It is just not excusable anymore.


This Giants offense was ranked 31st in the NFL and they put up 27 points.!! 31st! The Giants did absolutely nothing different than they did a few weeks ago when we played them. Yet they still had the same level of success against the Eagles defense. This coaching staff needs to be seriously evaluated. Not based on whether or not this Eagles team makes the playoffs THIS year, but if the Eagles can be competitive in the NFC every year.


For one of the rare times, this loss falls DIRECTLY on the shoulders of the coaching staff.


QBs: C

Carson did not do anything to hurt the team and didn't do anything to help the team. He threw for 208 yards and had his fair share of bad over/under throws. He held the ball too long at some points and made occasional things happen. He did not do anything extra-ordinary. Carson Wentz today was neither to blame or acclaim for the game today.


The Jalen Hurts experiment is useless. He is being brought in to run the option. The entire NFL has figured it out. Stop it until he is ready to lead an NFL team for a full 4 quarters.


RBs: B+

Without the running backs, this game is an abomination. This group had a combined 19 carries for 153 yards and both TDs. But they missed many blitzes (especially when it involved a safety off the edge) and Miles Sanders had a really bad drop. This group was the best on the offense but still didn't do enough to help this team win.


WRs: D+

9 combined catches for 94 yards. 2 false start penalties ON WIDE RECEIVERS. This group was not aggressive. They were not in position to make the catches and they didn't do anything to give Carson a chance to get them the ball. Alshon was a non factor (1 target) but it was good to see him out there again. This group HAS to contribute more. The leading receiver for the team shouldn't be the TE2.
