Eagles lose 27-17, Wentz struggles, injuries mount, we react

Episode Summary

The Eagles lose the season opener 27-17, Anthony, Brian, and Ryan give their initial reactions (0:50). Despite the loss, the defense was a positive (3:30). Injuries to the OL and 8 sacks from the Washington’s D-line was the matchup that swung the game, predictably (5:10). How much blame should Carson Wentz shoulder (10:30)? Injuries aren’t an excuse, but we can still acknowledge them (14:55). Lane Johnson’s health is a difference maker (19:05). Is there any long term concern around the team and the health of the OL (20:47)? Thoughts heading into next week’s matchup vs the Rams (27:50). While we harp on Wentz and injuries, we acknowledge that this is just the one game (34:30). Then we briefly lament an already banged up and struggling WR group (41:00) before wrapping up the pod with thoughts for the season moving forward (43:20).
