The Eagles haven’t made exactly a strong impression in their two games this season with the Giants. The coaching staff that won a Super Bowl after the 2017 season certainly looks a little ratty.
Throw James Bradberry, far and wide the Giants ’best corner, on a third down key at the start of the game? Not clever. Eagles coach Doug Pederson sounds like he’s lost his mojo as his team was badly out of its week.
“There are things that go as a coach, you have to deal with, and a lot of them could be practice issues on or off the field and different things, and even in my own preparation,” Pederson said.
The worst of all was the 34-yard touchdown run by Daniel Jones in the same game Jones ran for 80 yards on the Eagles three weeks earlier.
“The first game was a bit of a surprise,” said Philadelphia defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. “They missed a formation that we hadn’t seen before, but it was embarrassing in this game because they missed exactly the same formation, and we adapted badly. The guy who was supposed to be here for the quarterback wasn’t here. No one else. he escaped from any block and made us pay with a touchdown. ”
If coaching determines who wins the NFC East, the Giants are in good shape.
