Call me a Phanatic: A look at the ups and downs of being a Philadelphia sports fan.

This one falls on Doug Pederson. His decision to go with untested rookie Halapoulivaati Vaitai rather than shuffle his offensive line was a disaster.

I Don’t Get It: Can someone please take the Eagles defenders aside and let them know no one wants to see them preen after making a play when they are being pushed all over the field!

Today’s Upper: Kudos to Carson Wentz, who managed to survive. He should have known what was coming when his jersey was almost ripped off his back on the Birds’ first play from scrimmage.

Quote Box: “We never got in a rhythm.”
