What we learned (and didn’t learn) in Week 4 of NFL

All right, Philadelphia Eagles. I’m officially interested.

Carson Wentz? Doug Pederson? Whoever the analytics guy is who tells Pederson when to go for it on fourth down? Color me intrigued. The Eagles’ victory on Sunday against the Chargers in Los Angeles has them in position for a potentially very interesting season, because it put a very important logistical checkmark in their ledger. If you believe — as I do — that this year’s NFC East race will come down to which teams handle the grueling travel schedules the best, then the Eagles winning in L.A. matters.

Glennon had a competent opener against the Falcons as the Bears fell just short. But otherwise, he has been rotten since, as he’s had twice as many turnovers (8) as touchdown passes (4). He got the overtime “win” at home against the Steelers last week while throwing for only 101 yards — because the Bears rushed for 220.

When the Bears watch the film, they’ll see what Romo is talking about. Glennon is big, stationary and an easy target for pressure. He has been sacked “only” eight times over four games, but he’s been forced into more mistakes. He can’t buy much extra time with his feet and offers zero rushing threat.

Chicago’s offense isn’t all that complicated, and Trubisky is better built to do more with less. Sure, Glennon has been hampered by the fact Cheap Girls Softball Jerseys that injuries to starting wide receivers Cameron Meredith and Kevin White have left him Cheap Football Jerseys stuck with a slot man, Kendall Wright, as the No. 1 target. Dynamic young backs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen aren’t just the lifeblood of the offense — they are the offense.
