When you are picking through the remains of a game like Sunday’s Eagles loss at Seattle, you have a choice: to examine it from up close or to take a step back and view the mess from a distance. Both approaches are instructive.
And David Murphy’s headline says, “Eagles’ problem isn’t mistakes - it’s an overall lack of talent.”
And back and forth it goes, a tight focus followed by a broad view. Again, both types of analysis are crucial to understanding where this team is, and where this team is headed — to understanding exactly how badly Nelson Agholor is playing right now, and also to understanding how the talent level on the roster leaves such a little margin for error that it becomes impossible to overcome Agholor lining up illegally and costing the Eagles a touchdown.
