Undeserving, quite frankly. The OL is so unbelievably bad.

That's fair enough, but he needs longer than 2 seconds to produce anything.
Let alone what this battering he's taking must be doing for his confidence.

We don't even look like we care. Do I care more about winning than they do? Is this just a game to the players but so much more to me? What is the meaning of life?

You can already see him getting gun shy. He is looking like Ponder out there because he is so afraid he is going to get hit every play.

The ignorance of the staff regarding the woeful offensive line of last year through the off season, has resulted in the line becoming even worse, and now not even manageable.
I can't see us winning another game this season.

As I'm writing this they've failed once again. Goodnight boys

Good night. Get some sleep. No need to stay up for this mess...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the most expensive offensive line in football right?

The coaching staff doesn't seem to give a crap that we are completely embarrassing. Down by 3 scores and just going slow, no rush.

Early in the season they somewhat hid their O-line issues with quick short passes. The Eagles showed if you jump those routes the line will not be able to give Sam the time to let longer routes develop, that and they simply cannot run the ball. Nothing about this is surprising to me after last week.

What is surprising is the porous defense, what happened to them?
