The Eagles hit the nadir of Kelly's tenure. He's been taking a lot of criticism for his decisions as a general manager, and rightfully so, but the Eagles aren't a well-coached team right now. Ill-timed penalties, drops, turnovers and missed tackles are the hallmarks.
This was easily his worst performance as defensive coordinator this year. It might have been his worst since getting the job. Davis has six games to get his unit back on track or he could end up being an offseason sacrificial lamb.
The Eagles didn't lose because he jumped into the neutral zone. But Graham's penalty, which gave the Bucs a third down and short, was costly. Doug Martin rushed 58 yards on the next play when Graham and others bit on a fake.
There were reports that Sanchez could win the starting quarterback job from Sam Bradford with a strong showing the next two weeks. While it may have been true, anyone who believed he was capable of making a strong case obviously hasn't seen him play in the NFL.
He's looked a shell of himself, at least the linebacker who was a tackling machine as a Bills rookie. The Eagles better hope it's just the time off from a knee injury because otherwise they traded LeSean McCoy for damaged goods.
The Eagles obviously wanted to get the rookie receiver started, going to him on two quick hitters in the first quarter. But Agholor hasn't been able to do anything after the catch, especially since the high ankle sprain injury.
He got caught playing soft when Jameis Winston fired a touchdown pass to a slanting Vincent Jackson. Carroll probably should have started ahead of Bradley Fletcher last season, but we're starting to see why it wasn't a slam dunk.
Eight games. It had been eight games since Kelly called a misdirection screen to the running back, a play he had previously had great success with. With Ryan Mathews out, Sproles finally got a bump in snaps and delivered with a 35-yard touchdown catch.
Davis benched Chris Maragos as his fifth defensive back in the nickel defense and went with Biggers full time in the slot. Biggers had trouble with receiver Adam Humphries all game. Brandon Boykin would have come in handy in that spot.
His inconsistencies continue, but Huff gave the Eagles an early spark with an electric 39-yard touchdown catch and run. Naturally, he never got another target the rest of the game.
The curious case of Peters' back has kept him in and out of practices over the last three weeks, but he played through discomfort and gave his typical effort. Too bad the same couldn't be said of some of his other teammates on offense.
Kelly did something right. He drastically cut into Austin's playing time. But when Sanchez finally went to the receiver in the third quarter, the ball predictably went through his hands.
The amateur kicker/teacher nailed a 20-yard halftime field goal to win $20,000 - half of which went to charity. The Sinking Spring, Pa. native provided one of the few moments fans of the sinking Eagles could cheer.
