My Philadelphia Eagles? The defense stinks, Carson Wentz stinks, not having fans at Lincoln Financial Field booing their poor effort stinks.
You know what else stinks?
Gazette news columnist Sara Foss is threatening to make our competition a rout before September ends. Foss went 14-2 in Week 2 to improve to 24-8. However, I think she should be deducted points for picking the Eagles to beat the Los Angeles Rams last Sunday.
Even I knew better, and picked the Rams to win.
I was 13-3. I’m now 21-11. I have to hope Sara stubs her toe along the way. My mantra is one week at a time.
