Gold Stars And Demerits
The Eagles caught a break when Aaron Rodgers was injured against the Bears. They then caught another break when Seneca Wallace was injured early in Sunday’s game. They caught some breaks when a couple of underthrown Nick Foles passes turned into touchdowns rather than interceptions.
The most exciting thing about covering the Philadelphia Eagles this year is that it seems like we have a new team to cover every week.
The one thing that this season was supposed to be, despite wins and losses, was exciting. This is not exciting.
Let’s have a moment of silence for the Quarterback Controversy Era. It was a fun two weeks.

Andy Reid returned to Lincoln Financial Field last night, and brought the 2012 Eagles with him.
Nick Foles and Jeremy Maclin shine in the Eagles win over the Bucs.
