Area newspaper reporters offer their two cents after the Eagles' 24-20 loss to the Cardinals.

The Eagles tough to stomach 24-20 loss in Arizona left some fans speechless. But local reporters had plenty to write about in this week's installment of "What They're Saying".

The Philadelphia Inquirer'sJeff McLane provides 10 takeaways from the Eagles' loss ranging from how Nate Allen can't play sound defense for a full game to Chip Kelly mirroring Andy Reid on the sidelines Sunday.

Fellow Inquirer columnist Bob Brookover questions Coach Kelly's decision to kick a field goal with 2 minutes left in the game. Brookover also chronicles how 1 yard in each of the team's two losses could have made the difference between being 5-2 and being 7-0.

Ed Kracz of the Bucks County Courier Times also opines on Chip Kelly's coaching of the team Sunday saying that his faith in the defense was ultimately blind faith.

Meghan Montemurro of The News Journal weighs in on the Eagles' red zone inefficiencies citing that the Birds only convert for touchdowns on 40 percent of their red zone opportunities, a league low.

And, NJ Advance Media's Mark Eckel looks into his crystal ball to see if the Eagles will play "Let's Make a Deal" at Tuesday's trade deadline. Eckel offers specific insights on some viable safeties the Eagles could go after.
