Eagles offense continues to sputter with no solutions in sight

SEATTLE — A.J. Brown didn’t know what to say.

He doesn’t appear to have any solutions proper now. Nobody does.

“I don’t know what’s happening,” Brown mentioned concerning the offense after the Eagles’ 20-17 loss to the Seahawks. “I believe we’ll simply proceed to attempt to discover a approach to go to work. I don’t even know what to work at however I simply attempt to do my job, man. Management what I can management. That’s what I concentrate on.”

Whereas the most important Eagles story during the last week has been the change at defensive coordinator, it’s truthful to say the Eagles’ offense has been much more disappointing. This offense is meant to be carrying the workforce and as a substitute it’s sinking like a rock.

On Monday night time, the Eagles confronted the No. 26-ranked protection within the NFL and managed to attain simply 17 factors after gaining 321 yards. That is the primary time within the Nick Sirianni Period that the Eagles have failed to attain a minimum of 20 factors in three consecutive video games.

Throughout this three-game dropping streak, the Eagles’ offense has scored 19, 6 and 17 factors. That’s simply not ok.

That is an offense with an MVP candidate franchise quarterback, two elite broad receivers, a top-five tight finish, cromulent working backs and the very best offensive line in soccer. There’s an excessive amount of expertise to be this unhealthy.

So this offensive ineptitude is as complicated as it’s unacceptable.

“Clearly, that’s not our normal,” Sirianni mentioned.

The Eagles did enter this sport with their franchise quarterback properly beneath 100%. Jalen Hurts was sick sufficient to journey to Seattle individually and positively confirmed indicators of fatigue all through this sport.

But it surely was nonetheless a subpar efficiency from the QB and from the offense as an entire.

“I knew he was sick. However that ain’t no excuse,” Brown mentioned. “We’re on the sector, we’re taking part in. Don’t no one care what’s happening with us throughout the week. No one is [worrying] about that s—. We gotta play. I’m not making no excuses. Shouldn’t none be made.”

Brown mentioned he was disillusioned after that misplaced however not discouraged. He nonetheless has religion the Eagles will have the ability to flip issues round however he mentioned that begins with accountability, starting with himself.

Hurts on Monday night time accomplished simply 17 of 31 passes for 143 yards and threw two interceptions. Whereas he did have 82 yards and a pair touchdowns on the bottom, he ended with a passer score of 40.1, the third-worst of his profession as a starter.

The Eagles’ offense on Monday night time was very hit-or-miss. Right here’s a take a look at their drives in opposition to the Seahawks:

Discipline aim

“I believe you may level the finger at no matter,” Hurts mentioned. “I like the chance to go on the market and execute no matter what the circumstances (are). I did not do job of that. I did not lead ok. I did not do job sufficient in these circumstances.”

The final time the Eagles went three straight video games with out scoring 20 factors was throughout the 2020 season. That was a four-game dropping streak that ended up being the final 4 begins of Carson Wentz’s profession with the Eagles. So, yeah, issues aren’t going properly proper now.

Sirianni particularly pointed at some key conditions, specifically the 2-minute drill. That’s an space the place the Eagles have thrived prior to now and so they simply look utterly misplaced there proper now.

There are a bunch of issues on offense. Scheme, play-calling, lack of execution, expensive penalties. You title it, the Eagles are responsible.

Hurts on Monday confirmed some accountability, which is an effective begin. However issues want to alter and they should change quick.

“That is the fact of it. All people has a job in it,” Hurts mentioned. “I do know it begins with me. You recognize, bought to choose ourselves out of this. Ain’t actually too keen on ‘You observe the identical habits you are getting the identical outcomes.’ We have now to make an inner change in how we assault issues, how we come to work every single day. Begins with the little issues, how dedicated we’re to what we’re doing, and that every one begins with me the quarterback. 

“So it is a problem that I am embracing, I’ve embraced. You recognize, as robust as these instances are, I nonetheless see mild on the finish of the tunnel. It is only a matter of believing.”
