PHILADELPHIA (AP) – This Dream Team is a nightmare.
A popular pick to reach the Super Bowl after a free-agent spending spree brought several big-name players to Philadelphia, the Eagles (1-3) are last in the NFC East with a quarter of the season already over.
The Eagles’ latest loss was their worst one yet. They wasted a 20-point lead in a 24-23 home loss to San Francisco on Sunday, and now have blown fourth-quarter leads in three straight games.
Coach Andy Reid doesn’t seem to have an answer, except pointing the blame at himself. He’s done that following nearly every loss during his 13 seasons in Philadelphia.
