Hmm, well I think I’d disagree.
The Houston Texans started 0-3 last season and went to the postseason, so digging yourself an early hole isn’t an automatic death knell.
Of course the Birds are in a sticky situation if they lose tonight and fall to 1-3, but in that case I like their chances to beat the Jets at home with nine days of preparation and the possible return of DeSean Jackson. That would result in the Minnesota trip becoming the “make or break” game, probably more than this game, since you’d potentially fall to 2-4 with road games in Dallas and Buffalo on tap. That’s where it could really, truly get ugly.
We’ll see. Good stats from Greeny, but seems like a stretch to say the Eagles are playing for their season on September 26th.
