Should The Eagles Be Aiming For The Playoffs, Or Planning For Next Year?
I have an obligation to my fans to play for the present. My team is only 3-5, and while they are struggling, many teams have come back in similar situations.
Other than Nick Foles or maybe a Vinny Curry, everyone that is in my plans for the future is playing at this time. If I thought it was all Mike Vick'ss fault, I might have a different answer, but alas I do not.
We may or may not have the ability to snap out of this, but I want to find out. Good executives worry about now now, and have confidence that they can handle later later.

If I ran the Eagles I’d be focusing solely on evaluating for the future.
It’s less about evaluating the players that you have on the field and more about evaluating those inside your organization who you’ve entrusted to evaluate your players. NFL teams are built through the draft and those in charge of the draft have used their picks (and Jeffrey Lurie’s money) on Brandon Graham, Nate Allen, Daniel Te’o-Nesheim, Trevard Lindley, Keenan Clayton, Mike Kafka, Danny Watkins, Jaiquawn Jarrett, Curtis Marsh, and Casey Matthews – arguably 8-9 wasted picks in the first four rounds of the 2010 and 2011 drafts.
They’ve also signed free agents Nnamdi Asomugha, Jason Babin, Vince Young and Ronnie Brown, none of which have been impressive, to say the least. Get someone in there who knows how to build a football team and you’ll have a much better chance at being successful on the field.
