Eagles’ neglect for linebacker is coming back to haunt them

The Eagles are 0-2 and somehow that isn’t the biggest worry anymore. In Sunday’s loss to the Rams, the entire team collapsed in on itself (outside of the offensive line) with seemingly no explanation. Regardless of what those reasons might be, all this serves to do is highlight some huge risks taken by Howie Roseman in recent years.

Perhaps the most alarming quote of all came from Rodney McLeod after losing to his former team. The Rams put up 191 yards on the ground yesterday in an offensive output that made the Birds’ look flightless.
