I don’t know who had a worse Week 1, Carson Wentz quarterbacking my Philadelphia Eagles or me with my picks.
I’m still angry at Wentz for taking too many sacks and not throwing the ball away enough against the Washington Football Team.
I’m still angry at the way the Eagles blew a 17-0 lead and lost to a team without a nickname.
I’m angry at all the injuries they are suffering.
Will the last remaining healthy Eagle please turn out the lights?
And, then, I looked at my Week 1 record.
I’m still angry about that, too.
I went a mere .500 at 8-8. Meanwhile, Daily Gazette columnist Sara Foss, who has defeated me the last two years, opened the season 10-6. I’m already playing catch up.
It’s going to be a long season. Hopefully, I will do better in Week 2.
