Yeah. I think the Eagles big problem is that buying all the talent in the world means nothing unless they have team chemistry. The eagles..dont seem to have any.
Otherwise known as the Miami Heat Conundrum.
I'm utterly shocked by how awfully the Eagles are doing (and the Colts too)
The problem is that they are nothing without Peyton Manning. Yes, I understand that he can't play every position on the field (because the defense has been crappy as well), but the offense is so intricately based around him that you can't have just any other quarterback come in and do his job. That's impossible.
Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees...you could get any other Pro Bowl quarterback in there and they would suck just as much as Collins and Painter have been.
And now the Colts are basically forced
to look for a new quarterback when the season is over, because there's a good chance that Manning will not play ever again. And it's their fault for not doing it earlier, because Manning isn't exactly young.
