MORE RED ZONE BLUES

That's eight straight touchdown-less trips inside the opposition's 20-yard line for the Eagles, who went 0-for-3 in the first half Sunday against the Bears. Again, it was the lack of a legitimate running game that left them kicking field goals. Ironically the Eagles ran the ball up and down the field for much of the half. For the Andy Reid era the numbers were crazy. The Eagles ran the ball 18 times and threw 20 passes. But they refused to stick with it in the red zone. And it got them only a 9-3 lead at the half instead of a much more comfortable 13-3 bulge as they reached the 6-yard line on one thrust.

Here we go again, another typical ending for the Eagles. Three times in the red zone and settle for field goals. Time to clean house and get rid of good ole No. 5 and put the new kid in. Let him show the old guy how its done. Stupid penilties again. Take them off the field for the quarter, then maybe give them another chance.
One things for sure, with the way these jokers are playing so far, dont even think about Playoffs or the Bowl. This season is done for, so we may as well look to next season wiht a NEW starting QB.
