The Eagles are 3-4 and just added another starter to injured reserve.
But it could be worse.
You could be the 1-6 Giants, led by 37 year old Eli Manning and Pat Shurmur, who is now 11-29 as a head coach. You could be a team with exciting skill players like Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley who can’t do it all themselves, certainly not behind a fading quarterback and horrendous offensive line.
Giants’ brass appears to understand that, finally. They traded Eli Apple Tuesday for a 2019 4th round draft pick and 2020 7th rounder, according to Adam Schefter.
Then this tweet popped up:
Hearing the Eli Apple trade may just be tip of the iceberg. Strong perception among other teams thag the Giants are "open for business' ahead of next week's trade deadline

Like clockwork, this crossed the wire on Wednesday morning:
More deals: Now the Giants are trading DT Damon Harrison to the Detroit Lions for a fifth-round pick, sources tell ESPN.

La Canfora also says that teams are “sniffing around” on Janoris Jenkins and Gareon Conley, so the yard sale is on. Put the New York Giants next to the old Clive Cussler books and Fleetwood Mac vinyl. $1 apiece, ten for $5.
