UK_EaglesFan89 Posted September 21, 2020 Share Posted September 21, 2020 The history of the Eagles starting 0-2 is not very encouraging for the 2020 team’s outlook Quote The context you didn’t want to see. The Philadelphia Eagles are 0-2 after their first two games of the 2020 NFL season. It’s too early to say the season is already over, though. Right? Well ... maybe not. As we pointed out prior to Eagles’ loss to the Los Angeles Rams, only about 12% of NFL teams that have started 0-2 since 2007 have gone on to make the playoffs. Further, the history of the Eagles starting 0-2 just isn’t very encouraging. TAke a look, y’all: History of the Eagles starting 0-2 Season Final record Post-season 2020 ? ? 2015 7-9 Missed playoffs 2007 8-8 Missed playoffs 2003 12-4 Lost in NFC Championship Game 1999 5-11 Missed playoffs 1998 3-13 Missed playoffs 1990 10-6 Lost in Wild Card Round 1986 5-10-1 Missed playoffs 1985 7-9 Missed playoffs 1978 9-7 Lost in Wild Card Round 1975 4-10 Missed playoffs 1972 2-11-1 Missed playoffs 1971 6-7-1 Missed playoffs 1970 3-10-1 Missed playoffs 1968 2-12 Missed playoffs 1962 3-10-1 Missed playoffs 1957 4-8 Missed playoffs 1940 1-10 Missed playoffs So, the Eagles have started with an 0-2 record 17 times. They made the playoffs in just three out of those 17 seasons. And they won a playoff game (and only one game) in just one out of those 17 seasons. It’s hard to completely rule out a Doug Pederson squad since we’ve seen him bring his teams out of holes before. But it’s also hard to feel positive about this 2020 group after watching them struggle over the first two weeks. There’s a real chance the Eagles just stink. At the very least, we know history is not on their side. https://www.bleedinggreennation.com/2020/9/20/21448142/eagles-0-2-start-nfl-record-teams-history-philadelphia-playoffs-tank-carson-wentz-doug-pederson I've made some pretty terrible predictions in the past. I've also had a couple of good ones. I thought they'd lose last week to Washington with the OL injuries and injury to Sanders. I thought they'd lose yesterday because well... They aren't as good as the Rams. But I do think this season is over. Do they have enough talent to pull out of this hole? Yeah they do. Look I don't think this roster is great but it is better than what they have shown the last 2 weeks. But this team seems to have no fight, no heart. They look like they've given up already. The D yesterday was terrible and they looked flat on the sidelines too. That is the biggest concern for this team. To get out of this hole they have to fight and they have to pull together and we just didn't see that yesterday. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
