It was ugly, for sure. Not much can go right in a 29-3 loss even if it is preseason (although the Eagles kept the Ravens from getting into the end zone on those five Matt Stover field goals, didn't they?). The overreaction is amazing, though. It's as if the Eagles were beaten by the Bucs in the last game at the Vet all over again. Granted the coaches could have done a better job preparing for the Ravens and their blitzes. But let's get real: It was PRESEASON. You generally just don't wear your Sunday best to the rehearsal. As long as Andy Reid has been in charge the poor preseason numbers and records basically are indicators a playoff season is right around the corner.
