Are the Eagles Really This Bad ?

We all heard it before the season started:
     Superbowl Predictions.
     The "Dream Team".
     Miami Heat Comparisons
     Michael Vick for MVP.
     Nnamdi Asomugha is better than Darrelle Revis.

Through the first 5 weeks of the season, the Eagles have done all but prove these things.
In fact they have done the opposite:
     1-4 record overall.
     4 game losing streak.
     26.4 points allowed per game.
     7 interceptions and 7 fumbles for Vick.
     "Great" defensive backfield is getting toasted left and right.

     Playcalling, injuries, and poor play have all plagued the Eagles as they have continued to spiral downward for the past month. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Michael Vick is still Michael Vick. Last week he broke the career rushing record for Quarterbacks. LeSean Mccoy has 7 touchdowns. DeSean Jackson is averaging 19.5 yards per catch, and is still one of the best playmakers in the game. 2011 additions Jason Babin and Cullen Jenkins have combined for 12 sacks. The statistics are there. The Eagles are just a few plays away from being 4-1, and I expect them to prove it this sunday against the Washington Redskins.
