ITB Postgame Live: Same Issues Arise for Eagles in Third Straight Loss


A change in playcalling could not prevent another late-game defensive collapse and another sluggish offensive performance in the Philadelphia Eagles’ third straight loss.

On the latest episode of “Inside The Birds Postgame Live,” Adam Caplan and Geoff Mosher were joined by former Eagles tight end Clay Harbor to break down the 20-17 defeat.

James Bradberry

The Philadelphia Eagles fell to the Seattle Seahawks 20-17 on a last minute touchdown

Game-Winning Touchdown

Geoff Mosher: “The go-ahead touchdown from Drew Lock to Jaxon Smith-Njigba was puzzling right from the start. You could see there is only one safety back coming from the other side and you basically left Smith-Njigba, who is their number one target on third down, alone with James Bradberry which is not a great speed matchup.”

Clay Harbor: “This is a one-on-one drill. You are only rushing four. The safety is coming from the other side of the field, Sydney Brown is dropping down and you are doubling DK Metcalf with Nic Morrow. Leaving Bradberry one-on-one, who we know is not a man-to-man cornerback, I don’t even think Sean Desai does that. To me, that is a fireable offense. Horrendous call that cost them the game.”

Adam Caplan: “Drew Lock cannot move. He is slow, stiff, big guy with a big arm but has major accuracy issues. His mechanics are not clear. That’s why this late, you want to make him rush.”

Matt Patricia

Mosher: “You figured you would see some kind of fingerprint that says that it is Matt Patricia calling the defense. We saw a little more press coverage at times, there were other times where it was third down in the first half where it was a free release. It looked like the same conceptual defense.” 

Passing Game

Caplan: “The last time (Jalen) Hurts threw a touchdown pass was in garbage time against the 49ers. The pass game is just not there. Hurts is not seeing the field well. They have to get (Dallas) Goedert the ball more. The lack of explosive plays continue for this football team.”
