Turnovers Will Be Eagles Eventual Downfall

     It's obvious, no matter who you are if you're a football team that commits many turnovers, chances are you will lose the majority of your games. Despite a 2-0 start, For Mike Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles, it couldn't be further from the truth.

     One may say, "But the Eagles are 2-0 and just beat a Ravens team with one of the best defenses in the league."  True, but they could easily be 0-2 as well as they committed 5 turnovers against a young inexperience Cleveland Browns team, and committed 4 turnovers against the Ravens ( 3 of them being in the redzone.)

     The positive thing the Philadelphia Eagles can take away from their 9 turnovers they have committed, opposing teams have only 26 points off their turnovers (if you only count defense, they have only allowed 19 points as one of Vick's INT's was a pick 6)

     As the season progresses, the schedule will become tougher. On top of that, the Eagles already play in arguably the toughest division in all of the NFL. If the Eagles expect to contend for their division and a playoff spot, they can't be making these turnovers against teams like the Giants, Cowboys and Redskins.
    
   The Eagles are not in a "panic mode"situation (after all they are 2-0) but this is an important and crucial issue that the Eagles will need to address as the season progresses.
