Who Deserves The Credit For The Eagles 3-0 Start In 2016?
Coming off the Bye Week and heading into their matchup with the Lions in Detroit on Sunday, there are many people receiving credit for the Eagles 3-0 start to the 2016 season. From the impressive play of Carson Wentz to the coaching of Doug Pederson to the excellent play of the Eagles defense under Jim Schwartz; the Philadelphia Eagles appear to be firing on all cylinders so far this season.
Russell Baxter is Writer/Editor for NFL Spin Zone and Contributor for NFL Network's "Good Morning Football", he joined Josh Hennig on Saturday and discussed who he believes deserves the most credit for the Eagles hot start this season:
"To me the thing that has been remarkable about Carson Wentz was the little time he saw in the preseason. I think everybody agreed that he was talented, you're not the second (overall) pick in the draft if you're not talented and somebody hasn't seen it....The uncertainty (at Quarterback) and for them to come out and look as sharp as they have offensively I think has been a real credit to Pederson but the whole organization in general. It shows you that if you're not set from top to bottom, from Front Office to Player to Coach, you're not going to be successful; you can't be poor in any one of those three areas. As far as I'm concerned you can have the greatest Coach and the greatest players but if your Front Office is poor it's eventually going to catch up with you"
