Many guys made multiple mistakes....

Bell had 10 plus bad playsat least, Rodgers Cromartie and Nnamdi have routinely been out of place, missed tackles and just play nonchalant in games lately.
Celek drops passes, doesnt run his routes as he should, and then of all things he cant block for ish.
Maclin is proving week by week he's nothing close to a top receiver, he is one of the most disappointing first round picks in a while because of the hype he had coming out of college. The fact that he's single covered on 90 percent of his plays and still cant get open is mind boggling. That block in the back on Shady's 30+ yard run was another typical bonehead Maclin play as well. Sometimes it's like that kid is lost on the field
Imagine what will happen if some team tries to make him their #1 and he's doubled every week all game. That one pass where the announcers first thought Vick over threw Maclin wasn't a over throw. Maclin threw up one hand and made it seem like the ball was about to go over his head only for it to his his forearm. When's the last time you saw a Eagles receiver lay out for a TD? Watch the Packers, Patriots, and other teams receivers made plays on the ball, whether it's making a step or two back to secure a catch to, making a great catch with one or two hands or laying out for a catch. Avant makes good catches but he's limited athletically.
The Eagles should've kept McNutt on the roster and played Gilyard a little more to see if they have the desire to make those catches qb's need receivers to make. It makes the difference in the world when a qb knows he can throw a ball in the vicinity of a receiver and the receiver will make a play to catch that pass or knock it down at worse.
Something just doesnt seem right with this team, how can a Dline lead the league in sacks one year and barely touch qb's the next with the same scheme and more fire power. Babin seems like a punk lately, and with the lack of playing the run he's becoming very expendable.

Maclin has never been a beast. He's had some good games but he's benefited from being single covered and teams focusing on DeSean, McCoy and Vick over the years. Last year vs the Bills, Falcons and another game had TD's of his where the defense all over reacted to DeSean running and either doubled or triple teamed him leaving Maclin wide open on the backside. He was a solid player but he's never been a beast, especially when you compare him to Nicks who was drafted the same year as Maclin
