This team is not mentally in the game--there is no spark, especially on offense and that starts with the QB. He is the unquestioned leader of the team. I think in the back of everyone's mind is the fact that Vinny is just stop gap and that could lead to being soft mentally.
But what can they do? Start Henson against the Eagles?
I know this is nearly impossible to do but perhaps a switch of Flozel to right tackle and putting Rogers in at LT might improve the line long term. Rogers was a Left tackle and a pretty good one and here we are trying to make him into something else. Flo has the size to play RT and perhaps this challenge will sharpen his focus.
Other than that, we have no offensive spark plugs aside from out tight end.

Live or die with Roy W at the line of scrimmage. This is the only way to get some big plays out of him. He is a waste playing back.
I just hate our pass rush technique which is lock on to the man in front and try to bull rush. Do we ever stunt or play games up front?
Again middle of the season is not the time to make whole sale changes but this season is over
I don't know what's going on with Adams, but he is not the same player as last year. And Allen is not playing well. I don't know about yesterday's game but in the other games, the pressure against our QB was often coming fom Allen's side.
Parcells still try to make Rogers a RT instead of a LT.
And he try to make Tucker a RT but I think he was a good guard.
Roy Williams is still playing out of position.
Looks like most of Parcell's experiment doesn't look great so far...
I think he overrated the overall talent of the team, and didn't do much in the offseason to improve the team.
We are in for a long year.
It is time to know what we have in Henson, and get him some experience.
I hope JJones comes back soon and gets the load in the last games.
I'm fed up of George's 2-3 yards run.
