Colin Cowherd: “The NFL is three seasons— the regular season before Thanksgiving, the regular season after Thanksgiving, and the playoffs. Congratulations to the Eagles for winning September, October, and early November. Their injury report is now a mess. The quarterback is back hurt, their top slot corner is hurt, Lane Johnson, a first ballot [HOF] right tackle is hurt. Philadelphia was 8-0 to start the season, but Cincinnati and San Francisco are the best teams in the league post-Thanksgiving in the regular season. They’ve had 14 turnovers in just 7 games post-Thanksgiving, they rarely turned it over when the weather was good. The wheels aren’t coming off, I’m not saying that, but you can see rust on the undercarriage of this car. Philadelphia needs to get home field advantage in these playoffs. Jalen Hurts has never won a playoff game. Nick Sirianni has never coached a winning playoff game. This all new territory. The final undefeated team in the NFL— it means nothing— you have to go back to 2006, 16 years, where that team won a Super Bowl. September and October don’t mean nearly as much as you think. In many years, the team that was last to lose a game loses their first playoff game. Expectations get high, reality sets in, they have to deal with a crisis, and they’re not used to it. They have no chance to win a Super Bowl without Lane Johnson. He is the best right tackle in football, Tristin Wirfs for Tampa is probably second. They just don’t win that much when he’s not playing.” (Full Segment Above)
Watch Colin Cowherd explain why he’s no longer high on the 13-2 Eagles being serious Super Bowl contenders, as Colin had the Eagles ranked no. 6 in his Week 16 Herd Hierarchy rankings despite having the best record in the NFL.
Check out the segment above as Colin definitively proclaims that the Eagles cannot win the Super Bowl without a healthy Lane Johnson.
