Sunday was a terrible day for the Philadelphia Eagles. The team lost to the Kansas City Chiefs, and some thought Isaac Seumalo’s performance was the reason why the team didn’t beat their rivals. Isaac allowed four sacks against the Chiefs, while Carson Wentz was sacked six times, four of them being Seumalo’s responsibility.

The Chiefs beat Seumalo with speed and power, but following the loss, on Monday’s press conference, Doug Pederson said that he wouldn’t place the blame on any of the players. Some people suggested that the player should be benched.

Head coach, Doug Pederson, appreciates his players’ roles

Isaac had issues with run blocking as well as pass protection, and it seemed he had challenges playing left guard. But for those who wanted to see the team make changes to their offensive line, that's too bad because according to Doug Pederson, that’s not going to happen. He said on Monday that he didn’t want to push any “panic buttons” at the time and wanted to make sure their game plans were understandable. He appreciated his players’ roles and felt they were in positions rightfully assigned to them, including Seumalo. He acknowledged that Isaac had performed well in a short time since last year, considering the versatility of his position.

He asked the fans not to blame the players and promised to evaluate the team, but stated that they were not going to make any changes, and they were motivated to keep going.

Giving up on Isaac might generate panic in the team

Whether there was pressure from the fans or the team’s performance was ranking low, the benching of Isaac Seumalo would be regarded as a panic move.

The team is ranked 10th among the teams with most points in the league, and they haven’t played at home yet. It wouldn’t be wise to judge the player for just the two starts, and the team obviously still has high hopes on him.

Offensive coordinator, Frank Reich said that it wouldn’t be good to see a player get beat once or twice in a game, but that was normal.

It happens to every player, but when it exceeds five times, they would take that as a problem and evaluate it. The Head Coach assured people that Isaac was smart and versatile, and they had hopes on him. The coach knows that giving up on the player will be a sign that they are in panic mode.

They are playing New York Giants in their next game

The Eagles are slated to play the New York Giants who are known for their strong defensive line. If Seumalo plays as he did on Sunday, he might wreck the game. There is a suggestion that Seumalo should be left at LG, Chance Warmack should be inserted into the starting lineup, while Stefen Wisniewski needs to remain the primary reserve at all three spots on the interior offensive line and gets inserted in starting lineup at LG. Maybe by doing that, they will beat their next opponents.
