The Philadelphia Eagles are preparing for the Wild Card matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but Baker Mayfield and company are not the only major obstacles standing between this team and the Super Bowl.
Superstar wide receiver A.J. Brown has been notably frustrated with the team this year and has deleted all Eagles-related posts from his Instagram and deactivated his Twitter account.
In today’s modern age, deleting one’s social media profile is one of the fastest ways for an athlete to tell their organization that they are done with the status quo. Frankly, it’s easy to see why he’s upset.
After coming one or two snaps away from winning the Super Bowl last year, the Eagles lost both of their coordinators to head coaching positions, and the team has not looked the same in 2023.

The offense is one of the most predictable in the league, and the Eagles have collapsed in the second half of the season. So, if A.J. Brown is as frustrated with the Eagles as his Instagram suggests, could this be the end of the road? Will Brown face off against the Buccaneers on Monday, and will he be back in 2024?
The biggest question in the minds of every Eagles fan will be whether or not Brown will suit up for Monday’s playoff matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
While the Instagram post is a bad sign, it’s hard to imagine where Brown doesn’t suit up. At the end of the day, it’s the playoffs and if Brown played through the regular season, then he’s going to keep playing through this.
However, there is a genuine chance that Brown’s presence won’t matter. After a 10-1 start to the season, the Eagles collapsed down the stretch to finish with an 11-6 record while losing control of the NFC South. The team finished the campaign by losing a must-win game to a terrible Giants team, and that was with Brown in the lineup.
Now, the team is in a terrible slump, Jalen Hurts has an injured throwing finger, and the Eagles might go one-and-done in the playoffs.
