Why wouldn’t Eagles Head Coach Doug Pederson just throw the ball up in Overtime?

Eagles Head coach Doug Pederson let his team and his players down today. I am sorry, you do not accept a damn tie. That is wild to me.

The Philadelphia Eagles just basically accepted a tie. I am not sure I could have pulled that off as the head coach of an NFL team. You are 0-2 and you are tied to the Bengals. I mean what the hell do you have to lose?

Today, Doug Pederson and the Eagles were able to take Joe Burrow and the Bengals into overtime, and with time expiring in overtime the Eagles had a shot to attempt a long field goal. Unfortunately, there was a false start and the team moved back a bit.

On the next play with 15 seconds left in the game though, rather than throwing the ball to the endzone and taking a chance at a win, the Eagles punt it to finish the game with a tie.

I am sorry, something is happening right now in Philadelphia and the fans deserve better. We talk about trying to win every game, and I feel the Eagles and Carson Wentz are not playing the best ball right now. They need to fix whatever problems they have, and maybe they move on from Wentz.

Wentz was not the problem today though, but Jalen Hurts was fun. He took his first career snap today.

At the end of the day, the Eagles have to want to win. What happened to the team that ran trick plays and wanted to win? This is not the same team.

Eagles fans, what do you think?
