Okay, it’s Thursday morning and we need to chill about the Eagles.
They gave away the opener in Washington before getting pounded by the Rams, and Carson Wentz has not performed like a franchise quarterback.
The defense is suspect behind the line, and there are even off-field issues – namely Zach Ertz’s stalled contract talks.
Yet the Eagles are in the NFL’s weakest division and haven’t missed the playoffs since 2016.
“You never want to start 0-2,” said Wentz. “We’ll be OK. … Things happen, but we’re not panicking”
Since 1990, the Birds have overcome two of six 0-2 starts, reaching the NFC championship game in 2003.
This is the first time the Eagles have been 0-2 with Wentz and coach Doug Pederson.
