Emmanuel Acho can’t help himself, gives another terrible take on the Eagles
As a former Eagles linebacker, one would think FS1 commentator Emmanuel Acho would be more bias towards his former team. Sadly, it seems Acho is sinking his feet in on the anti-Eagles propaganda in 2022.
During the Monday edition of FS1’s “Speak,” Acho once again shared a lazy take regarding his former team. It’s a take that nearly every troll on Twitter has typed out this season. Emmanuel Acho is just the latest to hop on the bandwagon.

“The reason I’m incredibly concerned with the Eagles schedule is very a simple reason,” Emmanuel Acho says. “The Eagles will not see a top-five passing offense for the duration of the season. So they will have no repetition when it comes time for them to look at Josh Allen, Mahomes, Burrow, etc.”
Although the Eagles may not face any top-five passing offenses for the duration of the year, they have already faced one top-10 unit, the Detroit Lions, who rank seventh in passing yards per game. They’ll also face Indianapolis in a few weeks, the ninth-best passing offense in terms of yards per game.
Regardless, having a great passing offense isn’t necessarily an indication of a great team. Detroit and Indy have a combined record of 4-10-1, despite having top-10 passing offenses. Even if we look at the top-five passing offenses in the NFL, it’s pretty clear that being able to pass it all over the yard doesn’t equate to wins. The fourth and fifth-best passing offenses in the league, LA Chargers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, have a combined record of 7-8.
We can entertain the idea that the Eagles haven’t played anyone ‘great’ if we want to. Truth be told, none of the top teams have faced truly stiff competition this season. Philadelphia is tied for the second-most wins over teams with a .500 record or better this season. They’ve already beat the two teams behind them in the NFC standings, Minnesota and Dallas, by two possessions each. Their +78 point differential is also the second-best mark in the league.
What else do they have to do to get dopes like Emmanuel Acho on board?
This isn’t the NCAA where teams can schedule which teams they face. You play who you play in the NFL, and last time I checked, the Eagles have beaten every single team put in front of them thus far.
They literally couldn’t have done anything more.
I know it’s Emmanuel Acho’s job to stir the pot a bit. I mean, at least he’s doing a great job at that. I’m taking time out of my day to write about what he said. Mission success, I suppose.
In the NFL, you are what your record says you are. The Eagles record is 7-0. As far as I’m concerned, that’s all that matters.
