Despite all of this, the Eagles lost their eighth straight game on Sunday night, a streak that Philadelphia hasn’t seen since losing the first 11 games of the 1968 season.
The Dallas Cowboys emerged victorious at home in a 38-33 shootout, improving to 6-6, and giving them sizable hope of obtaining a playoff spot.
The Eagles fell to 3-9, leaving them at rock bottom in the NFC, and perhaps a loss or two away from being the worst squad in the entire NFL.
Any Eagles fan knows, 1968’s the year on a snowy, sub 20 degree day at Franklin Field a 5’6″ amateur Santa Claus was pulled from the stands, trotted out as a last minute replacement for the annual Christmas Pageant in front a miserable 54,000 strong home crowd halfway through watching the Birds lose their final game to finish 2-12 and which was good enough to let the Bills get the first pick of the 1969 draft (OJ Simpson). Sounds like 12/23
It’s that bad and Andy Reid, after a pretty good run, is set to be our own bad Santa.
Note: Yes. I am in Tokyo and went to Hooters. But I had to watch one game of football this week. Judge me all you want…at your desk.
