Last night at the stadium before the game the music was upbeat and joyous, loud and diverse, free and hopeful. Hope was the overriding theme of the attendees both in and out of the stadium before kickoff.
By halftime the plea of hope was evolving into "help"! Sadly, help is not possible this far into a season. Help, in my estimation, can only manifest itself if the owners are affected in their pocketbooks. As long as rabid fans activate the turnstiles the owners are quite willing to field mediocre teams led by inadequate coaches.
Hope is an emotional statement ; help is logical shout out for assistance. It seems with the existing coaches, players, and owners the Eagles are too, too far away from a playoff berth in the foreseeable future. But, if fans still support a failed system, nothing will happen.
