Identifying some (minor) nitpicks about the 10-1 Philadelphia Eagles

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — The Eagles are tackling this top seed in the NFC. That comes with a first-round bye and home playoff games leading up to the Super Bowl.

Jalen Hurts was spectacular.

The running game behind an experienced offensive line was dominant.

The defense comes up with turnovers in bunches.

It’s hard to find fault with a 10v1 team – but since Hurts, Coach Nick Sirianni and company are always talking about setting the standard and getting better – we don’t want to pick this team.

We’re not doing this to be mean – but to point out what might give us something to think about heading into the postseason.

The defense – although opportunistic – the running game could use some streamlining. The Eagles are in the bottom half of the NFL in terms of rushing yards per game. That could become a problem in the playoff period when rush is paramount.

Special teams were a problem. The Packers had three kickoff returns of 35 yards or more. Special teams coordinator Michael Clay called it “unacceptable.”

And health is always a concern with any team. The Birds were players along the defensive line. Dallas Goedert missed the time. And now, losing safety to CJ Gardner-Johnson — who leads the league with 6 interceptions — certainly won’t help.

All in all, I love the chances this team has. They believe in their head coach. They believe in their quarterback. And they make us believe in them.
