The Philadelphia Eagles continued to free-fall until the very last second of the regular season.
Going from 10-1 to the No. 5 seed and losing the division speaks volumes of the crisis this team is going through, and the most shocking part about this is that it had nothing to do with injuries.
The Eagles will now travel to Raymond James Stadium for a date with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and not even the most optimistic fan loves their chances right now.
According to NFL analyst Nick Wright via his show, there are two big issues this team needs to get past if they want to succeed in the playoffs, and they might not have enough time to do it.
Reasons why the Eagles are cooked, according to @getnickwright:

For starters, Wright believes they have the absolute worst defense in the league among all the teams still in contention to win the Vince Lombardi trophy.
He stated that they just can’t stop anyone on the ground or in the air.
On top of that, he believes that HC Nick Sirianni has lost his way and doesn’t know what he is doing right now.
Wright questioned Sirianni’s ability to make adjustments and deal with adversity, calling him out for ripping and mocking rival fans.
Sirianni’s late-season decision to give Matt Patricia defensive play-calling duties over Sean Desai proved that he was a little bit desperate for a turnaround, but now, it just looks like his Super Bowl window is about to shut down right before his eyes.
