Sure, the Eagles looked like last year’s Super Bowl champs as they cleaned the Giants’ clock last night 34-13.
They’re now 3-3 and tied for the NFC East lead with the 2-2 Washington Redskins.
But let’s be real:
They beat the Giants, who are now 1-5 and are undeniably woeful
The excuse-laden Giants’ offense has been broken beyond repair since the 2016 season.
Lacking even a semblance of mobility, Eli Manning has developed a mutually malignant relationship with his offensive line, each magnifying the other’s weaknesses.
Manning doesn’t seem to trust his blockers or his own escapability, rendering obsolete the intermediate and deep aerial attack.
His longest completed pass on the game’s first seven drives traveled a meager 2.09 yards in the air, per Next Gen Stats.
Although the G-Men selected rookie Kyle Lauletta in the draft’s fourth round, the No. 2 quarterback is Alex Tanney, a 30-year-old trick-shot artist with 14 career passing attempts.
the offensive doldrums linger throughout the season, general manager Dave Gettleman may just get a mulligan on his decision to bypass a potential franchise quarterback with a premium draft pick.
