We're all in agreement that the Eagles dream season is over already, right? OK, good just checking. Because if you feel differently, you might actually agree with what LeSean McCoy is going to say on your television Sunday night.
In an interview with Bob Costas, McCoy says he believes Philadelphia can "run the table" in 2011.
"I think so," McCoy says to Costas, per Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk. "Not only me, but everyone in that locker room thinks the Eagles can win out. The talent is there. You ask defenses that we play; when they turn the tape on they don’t see a 3-6 team. I think if we just take care of the small things we are in good shape. I think we can run the table."
Now if there was any team not named the Packers with a good chance at going on a talent-fueled run from the depths of the NFC, it would probably be the Eagles.
Unfortunately, the talent that gives the Eagles such an opportunity has been trumped thus far this season by poor planning and worse execution.
Since taking down the Cowboys two weeks ago, the Eagles have found themselves back on the schneid, losing back-to-back games to the Bears and Cardinals. Given how poor they looked in all areas against those teams, maybe McCoy and his teammates would be wise to simply worry about Sunday night's game against the division rival Giants, instead of looking to the end of the season.
