Philadelphia Daily News beat man Les Bowen is taking a look back at the Eagles' 13-9 loss to the Raiders on Sunday. He said some familiar themes emerged during the loss, including a ton of downfield attempts and no appreciable running game. Bowen comes close to saying that coach Andy Reid panicked -- without using those exact words.
It was an awful day for a team that's alleged to have so many offensive weapons. Reid didn't have any answers Monday regarding his abandonment of the running game, but then, that's been a longtime issue in his offense. And where was Michael Vick? Well, Reid said he didn't really like how the Wildcat formation set up against the Raiders. Hmmm.
Much more to come. Make sure you read our weekly Stock Report in about an hour.
