Oct. 27—I knew it would be a tough season for my Philadelphia Eagles. A new head coach, a quarterback who did get some late-season experience last year. Maybe there would be a new attitude.

Alas, the Eagles are done. They have packed it in.They looked pathetic in last Sunday's 33-22 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. Don't let the 11-point margin fool you. The game was over at halftime. The offense stinks. The defense can't stop a leaky faucet. The only thing working is the kicking game.

I want major changes with this team. It's time for Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie to wake up and realize Howie Roseman is a horrible general manager, and that head coach Nick Sirianni is overmatched.

I've been reading that the Eagles have gotten through the toughest part of their schedule and now have the easiest remaining schedule. You know what that means? Absolutely nothing. Just ask the Philadelphia Phillies, who supposedly had an easy schedule over the last few weeks of the MLB season. They didn't win a lot of those games. They stumbled and missed out on winning the National League East Division. Like me, they are watching the division-rival Atlanta Braves in the World Series.

Bitter? You bet.

If the Eagles lose to the Detroit Lions on Sunday (which they will), there better be a reckoning at the Eagles' complex on Monday.

I went 9-4 in Week 7. I am 65-42 for the season.
