The Philadelphia Eagles lost to the Washington Redskins 23-20 and sit at the bottom of the NFC East with a 1-3 record after Week Four.
This offseason, head coach Chip Kelly was given control of the roster, while former general manager Howie Roseman’s role was shifted to be the Executive Vice President of Football Operations.
Kelly completely dismantled and reassembled the Eagles’ roster to find the perfect personnel, but four games into the regular season, it’s not going as planned.
The running game has faltered. Running back DeMarco Murray has 29 carries for 47 rushing yards in three games. When asked if he thought he was getting enough touches, Murray voiced his discontent, and responded, “No, I’m not. I don’t think I am. But it’s how the plays are being called. I love this offense. I love playing with these guys. It’s how it is.”
The Eagles have to get some sort of a rhythm going on offense, and it won’t happen until they find success running the ball. Offensively, the Eagles have to emphasize getting Murray the ball and controlling the clock.
