Eagles suffered Week Four’s worst loss

San Francisco 49ers v Philadelphia Eagles Getty Images

Every loss hurts, but some losses hurt more than others.  Each week, we pick the team that was the biggest loser of the weekend.

This was the week the Eagles fully realized nothing about this season is going to be easy.  There are no automatic wins.  If they are going to make the playoffs, they are going to do it the hard way.

Losing two straight home games is bad enough, but losing a 20 point lead to the inept 49ers offense drives the point home that no game is safe. The only game the Eagles have won this year came against arguably the worst team in football — St. Louis.  There are no automatic wins for Philly.

Nnamdi Asomugha is struggling. Michael Vick is backing out of radio shows.  Howard Eskin is committed to a long ride on a banana seat.

This doesn’t mean that the season is lost or that even title hopes are dashed.  But it does change expectations.  The NFC East is going to be a slugfest.  Only one team may get in, and they all have a decent shot.  There won’t be any 59-point outbursts in Washington this time around.

With difficult out of division games left against the Bills, Patriots, and Jets still left, it’s hard to imagine any scenario the Eagles earn a playoff bye.  The Eagles need to start winning soon before the season spirals and it won’t be easy with two road games in Buffalo and Washington next up.

The Eagles got the nod as the worst loss of the week in part because they are so banged up. Michael Vick finally finished a game healthy, but two Pro Bowlers (Jason Peters and Trent Cole) are now out a while. Cole is arguably the second most valuable player on the team.

Perhaps the loss to the 49ers will be a turning point for a team that hasn’t exactly struggled to move the ball on offense.  No matter how the Eagles respond, this loss will leave a mark.

The Eagles expected to be one of the best teams in football. Instead, Philly will have to do battle with getting over .500 for a while.

Previous winners of this honor: The Chiefs and Jaguars. I forgot in Week 3 and have decided to blame my newborn baby for scrambling my brain.

We’d like to thank the Rams, Cowboys, Bills, and Jets for their strong candidacies this week.

    Eagles suck.

    That’s all I got.

  2. polishrod says: Oct 4, 2011 1:23 PM

    The haters are gonna love this…. though Dallas certainly deserves to be in a tie for this award.

    The Romosexual aspect of the Cowboys should give them the nod

  3. benh999 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:24 PM

    It could be worse — they could be playing and losing to the worst division in the league. Oh, wait…

  4. medtxpack says: Oct 4, 2011 1:25 PM

    WOW! Romo cant even win this for Dallas…

  5. returntoexcellence says: Oct 4, 2011 1:25 PM

    Come home Nnamdi… where we know how to play you. All is forgiven…

  6. joetoronto says: Oct 4, 2011 1:25 PM

    The almost made Alex Smith look like a pro.

    Not easy to do.

  7. tedesco47 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:26 PM

    “There won’t be any 59-point outbursts in Washington this time around”

    I don’t see why not… The eagles are 4th in total offence this year. They will dismantle a terrrrible redskins team who were barely able to beat the lowly rams…

  8. bushido49ers says: Oct 4, 2011 1:28 PM

    Inept offense? How about crappy Eagles defense!

  9. chowface86 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:29 PM

    Vick will be cut by week 10, total loser.

  10. hendawg21 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:30 PM

    Schmuck the Iggles…must be tough knowing your bird poop does stink I would love to see this Andy Reid Production crash and burn more!!! Couldn’t get it done with McNabb, didn’t even want to try with Corn Kolb and doesn’t look like its going to happen with Mike the dog fighter Vick! Guess the Philadelphia fans better root, root, root for the Phillies…that’s the best chance for any Championship in the city of brotherly love!

    I wonder what it feels like to be totally clueless, perhaps you can describe this sensation to everyone?

  12. schmitty2 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:33 PM

    I have a strong hunch that at least 100 poeople will comment on here with something to the affect of “Lol” “haha” or “told ya so”

  13. shaggytoodle says: Oct 4, 2011 1:34 PM

    With expectations as high as they were, and team members buying into the hype machine. It doesn’t surprise me.

    If Philly doesn’t make it to the playoffs, they could very well be looking for a new head coach.

    Good luck against Buffalo next week.

  14. 2sausage11 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:34 PM

    Get rid of Vick and Andy Reid

  15. texansfan2011 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:37 PM

    Reid and Vick sound like they have alot of sand in their privates, and are looking for excuses for sucken as usual. Vick is probby calling his Kennel Klub asking for help, with a puppy killing to turn the failure away from him……….

    -At least they won something.

    Why did it take until Tuesday for a story on the dream team?

  19. rugdaniels says: Oct 4, 2011 1:47 PM

    There was a lot of crowing by Eagles fans on this site before the season started, so it’s good to see them have to eat it now.

    Still a long season, but the Eagles need to get it turned around this week or the climb to the top of the East will be too steep.

  20. toad8572 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:50 PM

    There’s not much wrong with Philly that a new DC wouldn’t fix.

  21. supashug says: Oct 4, 2011 1:52 PM

    I believe the Steelers and Jets would disagree

    They both were beaten very badly

    Do you think Ben and Sanchez wanted to play another down, no way, submission

  22. mattsffrd says: Oct 4, 2011 1:52 PM

    So basically this is just a puff piece to bash the 49ers? That “inept” offense has the 49ers at 3-1, and Alex Smith is top 10 in accuracy and QB rating.

  23. wcdunkenfield says: Oct 4, 2011 1:52 PM

    Those of us who have watched this kind of production for 50 years have a code word:

    B-E-A-G-L-E-S…

  24. maddenisfordorks says: Oct 4, 2011 1:53 PM

    All Vince young does is win games.

  25. mhalt99 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:53 PM

    We have the absolute best defense in the history of the league……that has had an offensive line coach for the defensive coordinator…….oh wait there aren’t any others? Is that why we are number 1?

    Are there any high school or pop warner coaches in the philadelphia area that have experience coaching a defense? PLEASE!!!!!

  26. My Last Victim Escaped says: Oct 4, 2011 1:54 PM

    I dont get whats so hard for the Eagles to tell Nnamdi and Asante to both play man? I thot Asante was a man corner too? Same with DRC? Go back to basics…

  27. stampede101 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:56 PM

    A banana seat??? Nah…nah, hell nah…let the Niner fans pick the seat!

  28. geniusfan says: Oct 4, 2011 1:57 PM

    I don’t know how many Eagles fans are still around but I’m still here.

    This team has to win this week or it’s all but over.

    I guess all the bandwagon birds fans will start fleeing in 3 2 1…

    HAHAHAHAHAHA right…..

  30. jakek2 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:58 PM

    “no 59-point outbursts”?

    Untrue. I can see the Skins putting up 59 on this bunch of overrated, rag-tag, soft players.

  31. citynative says: Oct 4, 2011 1:59 PM

    How about this novel concept….. the Eagles aren’t a good team.

    Go Niners!

  32. jakek2 says: Oct 4, 2011 1:59 PM

    Eagles broke the first amendment of the NFC East.

    “Thou shalt not lose home games to the NFC West”.

  33. We'reFineThere says: Oct 4, 2011 2:00 PM

    13-3, the Eagles needed a push.

  34. newagerocker says: Oct 4, 2011 2:02 PM

    Maybe The Eagles will be in the Andrew Luck sweepstakes. They need a good QB controversey to take the edge off of everything else thats wrong.

  35. 49ersmang says: Oct 4, 2011 2:03 PM

    24 point and over 500 yards in total offense cannot be called inept, we are 3-1 people with 2 wins on the east coast against good teams!!!!
    And the only loss in overtime against (americas team)
    Go Niners!!!!
    JoToronto I suspect you’re a Raiders fan, and as I predicted tothe other bozo raiders fan on here (raiderrob69) Brady brought the dumbest team in America back to earth!!! Jason Campbell’s int in the end zone was of a probowl caliber !!! LOL !!!

    Lol Vick looked great…

  38. tucknrolle says: Oct 4, 2011 2:10 PM

    There won’t be any 59 point outbursts because the birds can’t get it done in the red zone. They are having more and more problems hitting the huge pass play because Vick has no time to throw and teams aren’t letting the speedy wr’s beat them over the top as much. They move just fine between the 20’s but they need someone beside
    McCoy as a threat inside the 20. Celek us perfect but he’s stuck blocking so Vick doesn’t die. I think the Bikls and the Skins are going to run the ball consistently against the birds, chew a lit of clock and win the games.

  39. richm2256 says: Oct 4, 2011 2:13 PM

    Can’t get a post in unless I’m praising Vick and the Eagles, apparently.

  40. tdk24 says: Oct 4, 2011 2:15 PM

    Now i know what VY meant when he called the Eagles a Dream Team. They are a team that dreams about winning.

  41. RussianBreadMaker says: Oct 4, 2011 2:15 PM

    Good thing Eagles fans dont know how to read.

  42. duncanthecat says: Oct 4, 2011 2:16 PM

    I guess it’s now public….Vinny Cerato was part of the McNabb trade.

    I don’t get it. In the last two drafts The Eagles have drafted 20 plus players and really nothing to show for it.

    The Snyder/Cerato Redskins proved that having big names without any dept tranlated to mediocrity.

    The Eagles could have done it right if they had properly drafted. What happened? Agree that major changes need to be in the works win or lose.

  43. fringetastic says: Oct 4, 2011 2:16 PM

    I am surprised by the Eagles record considering the pre-season hype, but I think they’ll get run over the next two weeks. 1-5 isn’t hard to imagine at this point.

  44. jb347 says: Oct 4, 2011 2:17 PM

    Niners fans…enjoy it while it lasts. You guys will back into the playoffs by virtue of being in the NFC West and it’ll be 1 and done.

  45. broncobillie says: Oct 4, 2011 2:19 PM

    Cowboys fans will remember the hype when they added Roy Williams to their wide receiver corps – victory by talent.

    Come to find out victory is only achieved by playing better than the opponent.

    You’d think the Eagles would have learned from that…

    The ridiculous amount of dumb ass comments on here by Philly fans to save face is comical.

    The EMPTY TROPHY CASE CLAN couldn’t stop talking after week 1.

    WHERE ARE ALL OF YOU?!?!

    Wanna know what is MORE of a miracle than Herman Edwards or DJax?

    The fact that your franchise has set out to accomplish one goal since its existence, win a ring – and you STILL haven’t done so. That means over 50 years of failing.

    CHOKE ARTISTS OF THE CENTURY!

  48. boiler72 says: Oct 4, 2011 3:02 PM

    As usual (this is getting to be routine) … the Green Bay Packers would like to thank the Dream Team for all of their on-going struggles. Since, you know, the bulls-eye, the fan/media pressure and scrutiny is usually reserved for the defending champs.

    Not this year, LOL. Dream Team, Dream Team!!! I hope the media pours gasoline on it until the Heat, er, I mean Eagles, can’t breathe anymore.

  49. briank1ne says: Oct 4, 2011 3:03 PM

    niners werent supposed to win this game…but everyone slept on them. the eagles have a more talented team but fail to execute. everyone is underestimating the niners. and they are a good football team. as weeks go by they will only get better as the offense will grow with plays and such. the eagles could be easily 3-1 if they knew how to run a good play at the goaline but their stupid mistakes could and probably will cost a playoff birth.

  53. packmanfan says: Oct 4, 2011 3:18 PM

    But I can’t.

    ———————————————————————Unfortunately we aren’t seeing them eat anything. Most of the loudmouth Eagles fans (most notably “mad55555″ and “7to10for6allday”) have been noticeably absent since the Eagles lost to the Giants.

    Probably, once the Eagles win a couple of games (I would assume at some point they are going to win back to back games), those two and their cronies will be back beating their chests louder than ever. Scumbag bandwagon fair weather fans.

  56. sadskinsfan89 says: Oct 4, 2011 3:39 PM

    Love u fans that still talk like the eagles will get better. That’s all fine and dandy but ur 1-3. That’s what u are NOW and playing bad football. Enjoy the basement. So much talk before the season and where are u at 1-3. Hope the bills kick ur ass Sunday

    Spoken like a typical ignorant philly fan.

    Skins as team are much improved.

    Philly can’t stop the run. Skins are running well with a 3 headed attack.

    Philly can’t score when they need to.

    Skins D is #3 in points allowed and #1 in sacks.

    Skins have 2 weeks to prepare and revenge factor.

    Skins dominated Rams for 3+ quarters and it was only close cause Moss dropped a pass right into a Rams defenders lap who ran it back. Doubled them in yardage and dominated time of possession.

    MFlo is this you>??

    Eagles are on their way to 1-6.

    Ok I sorta get this article since its legit to point out ineptitude especially from a team of this teams magnitude but can we PLEASE stop ONLY talking about the wack ass Eagles and Cowboys? There are 32 other teams in the NFL. I am sure the millions of die hard fans these 2 teams have can go to a local media outlet of said team to hear horrible things about them losing games they shouldnt and why…lets talk about how bad the Vikes suck…or maybe a story about Calvin Johnson…everytime Vick sneaks a fart it gets mentioned and broken down by a billion geniuses…oh, and Romo had a “collapsed lung”…riiiight…lets try spread the news around a little here PFT/ESPN. Lets dont forget about those of us that hung around while the lockout barely killed us…to now tune in to hear about 2 crummy teams…always…

  63. gritsmaker says: Oct 4, 2011 4:21 PM

    the eagles defense and offensive line must improve or the losses will continue.

    The season is 16 games long with guaranteed ups & downs ….. I’ll reserve my harshest comments for the Eagles when they lose their 7th of the season …… It’s waaaay too early now …….

    Probably not as bad as it must feel to be a gutless coward. Giants won and you disappeared for over a week despite being called out in numerous posts. Nothing lower than a cowardly troll. Where’s all your tough talk now about your mighty Eagles now, big man? One loss against a division rival and you bail. Not a surprise, but don’t think we won’t call you on it all season long.

    The Eagles are now the NEW Washington Redskins with spending sprees galore…so please Jeffrey Lurie, learn from your lesson, and complete the Daniel Snyder process…FIRE YOUR HEAD COACH and put an end to this nightmare…Jim Johnson isn’t here anymore to cover up his (Reid’s) draft screwups…
    The Eagles are a gimmack team…poorly coached, lacking discipline, lacking direction, lacking ball security, lacking red zone competency…but worst of all, no heart, no backbone, no toughness, no sense of urgency, and zero leadership…13 years is too long, pull the plug, cut the cord, and put out feelers for Gruden, Cowher, ANYONE other than Big Red…oh wait, what if he makes Juan Castillo the interim head coach…YIKES

  71. jacunn2000 says: Oct 4, 2011 5:17 PM

    I see a lot of Dallas comments on here. Hate Dallas, but I don’t recall Dallas getting near as much play as the “Dream Team”.. They were supposed to suck this year. Eagle fan is the worst in the game.

  72. omnipresentfan says: Oct 4, 2011 5:21 PM

    Still can’t believe them birds with the billion dollar defense got bent by the niners… at home…after a 20 point lead…

    With careless receivers fumbling…rockie kicker missing cheap shot field goals… new running back purposely handing the ball to the niners at the frigging GOAL LINE…expensive secondary with their heads in the bank… head coach with his head in the cheesesteak joint…what a dream, I mean nightmare!

    OUCH!!!!!!

    Seems as if there are a WHOLE LOT of new football fans posting here who don’t have a clue. C’mon…anyone who has watched in the last decade knows that Philly almost always starts off slow and ugly, but they find a way to turn it on late in the season, when it really counts.

    Even as a lifelong Giants fan, theres no way I’m counting them out. They’ll definitely bounce back. There is too much talent on that team to do otherwise.

    If Buddy Ryan was the defensive coordinator on this team they’d be undefeated.Andy Reid really screwed up making his offensive line coach the defensive coordinator.If offensive line coaches would make great defensive coordinators everybody would be doing it.Andy has got to quit trying to reinvent the game of football by making bone headed moves like this.

  78. eaglebranded says: Oct 4, 2011 6:18 PM

    First of all I thought football was being played before the superbowl era. Hmm. I guess Philadelphia was looking for a ring then too. Now they saying the defense is no good ,maybe the coordinater . Please all u haters keep posting
    your comments it will only lead to you making a fool of yourselves . Hmm. They was beating all three teams went to a zone defense and lost all three. It’s on dumb ass Juan go get two of the best man cover corners and he wants them to play zone . That is what Asante plays well Zone let him play zone, line Nhamdi on the opposing tight end , and

  79. typicaleaglesfan says: Oct 4, 2011 6:18 PM

    First off the worst eagles comment on here is referring to eagles fans as “eagles nation”. The red sox fans are considered red sox nation no one else.

    Even if the eagles screw the rest of the season up they will come back next year and destroy teams. There is 12 game left and I’ll be lookin for all the haters to eat their words when the eagles figure it out. It may be impossible with Castillo trying to run our defense. That is the worst mistake Andy has ever made as a coach. Eagles finish 11-5 or 10-6. Write it down. If not than I’m wrong and I’m adult enough to admit it. Go Birds

  80. wcdunkenfield says: Oct 4, 2011 6:24 PM

    And, for the record:
    – The Eagles fans did not start the “D…. T…” nonsense, and 99.99% know that if you tag yourself in this manner, you are giving all opponents bulletin board material. Blame stupid Vince Young.
    – Vick could have and would have gone to any other number of teams. Reid seems to believe in redemption, and acted on that belief. An act of bravery when viewed from a certain angle.
    – Vick served his time, unlike Irvin, Lewis, and a whole “line-up” of others. Other than Plaxico, who in recent memory could say that? BTW, Vick has been a model citizen off the field. If his coach was Dungy, would you all still be acting this way?
    – All teams go through slow starts. I understand the NFC East team fans throwing mud, but Lions or Bills fans? At least the Eagles have been a power in the last 10 years. Or did you all forget that.
    – Schemes and coaches fail. Haslett, Phillips, Mora, Mariucci, and plenty that fade into memory had excellent teams that didn’t succeed.
    – We rode McNabb forever. We are now seeing (perhaps) that we had the wrong horse all along. And perhaps Vick is not the right QB for this offense.
    – Lastly, the Eagle fans. They are intense, yes. They are also rabidly loyal (despite what is written here). They have tolerated 50 losing seasons, endured countless incompetent coaches and players, and still fill the stadium EVERY week. Even Dallas didn’t do that during the dark years. Despite the snowballs and all the rest, they buy more stuff, hold just as many tailgate parties, and fill more “tap rooms” with fans each week than almost any other team. They do not make the player decisions, they do not make the coaching decisions, they do not make the on field decisions, they don’t play QB or corner, they don’t own the team. What they do do is suffer the poor coaching decisions, they suffer the losing seasons, they suffer the crap from other team fans, they suffer from bad calls, they suffer missed 33 yd field goals, they suffer 4th and 1 at the 45 that gets stuffed, they suffered from grinning fools that just threw interceptions. And they come back every week for more.

    I’d wager that NONE of the rest of you would. And for those reasons, the Eagle fans deserve better. Here, and on the field.

    Rodgers play the left . Brandon Hughes and Curtis Marsh can handle the rest bring that safety down and try to handle the run. Simple , but oops we got dumb ass Juan trying to make sh.. difficult.

    Niner fans need to take it down a notch. The win at Philly was big and as a Giants’ fan I laughed but at the end of the day, Alex Smith is still their QB.

    The Broncos should bench Kyle Orton and see what they have in Tebow. Orton is………….crap. Wrong post. This is the OTHER useless daily update. Sorry bout that I get confused.

    Ha Ha Eagles. Vick sucks.

    Ok I feel better now.

    ~~~~Tired of so much space being wasted on the Eagles and Cowboys. There were high expectations for these teams. Both teams suck ass right now, for a variety of reasons. Can we talk about something else now?~~~~

    this is what happens when everyone wants to be the star…

    First off the worst eagles comment on here is referring to eagles fans as “eagles nation”. The red sox fans are considered red sox nation no one else.

    ———————–

    Ummm, the only sports nation has always been and forever will be “Raider Nation” and that’s the way it’s been since at least the 70’s. Johnny Come Lately’s and Norman Neverwas’s need to get their own nicknames. I’m talking to you, BoSox and Eagles fans.

    Ummm…. One word… NO!
    Dont deserve more, you guys support the horrific things vick did to helpless animals by rooting vick on. You guys sold your souls to get a few wins… Fortunately it back fired on you and all you get is losses. Karma lives in philly until vick is thrown out!

    Got a source, ANY reputable source,
    that shows “Raider Nation” going back
    to the ’70s?

    Ditto to EAGLES suck!

    do people actually watch the games? Vick threw for 400 yards and had an 100 QB rating and an 89 QBR. As for all these mental midgets, other than Ronnie Brown our FA signings have been very good. It’s the non-FA signings that have been awful.

    Funny watching the Eagle fans here.

    When they come back from a 20 point deficit they never shut up.

    When they get beat by a team coming back on them from a 20 point deficit they CRY.

    The 1-3 start warms the heart of every other team’s fans in the NFL. It’s too delicious to even try & put into words but honestly watching the reaction of Eagle fans is ever better.

    No team’s fans deserve it more than Philthy fans.

    As for the guy with “Andy Reid believes in redemption” speech, Reid cares about winning & would bring in Charles Manson & Ted Bundy if he thought they could help him win. Football coaches care about winning, not redemption. To hear people put Reid on a pedestal for signing Vick & all the religion people use in regards to someone so sadistic as Vick is ridiculous.

    When Vick was hired, McNabb was still #1, and Kolb was #2. Reid had, at that point, no intention of making Vick anything but a backup.

    If you did anything more than run your mouth, you would know that the fans were just as pissed that Vick was hired as the idjits here that call out the Eagles for it. The fan base in Philly was NOT in favor of the hire. Reid made the call. Had he sought fan approval, the Vick hire would not have happened. There are just as many dog lovers in Philly as anywhere else.
