It really doesn’t take much thought to realise how that wouldn’t work at all
I think the main reason is that one can’t destroy the ring without some outside interference. The eagles wouldn’t be able to drop the ring.
Giant Eagles are not uber drivers.
[This](http://www.sean-crist.com/personal/pages/eagles/index.html) link argues (convincingly, imo) that this very plan represents a plot hole in LOTR.
At the very least, it provides counterarguments for the usual protests (e.g. Nazgul, Sauron).
Wouldn’t they just get killed by those worm dragon things that the Nazgul ride? Or shot down by massed Orc archers and artillery?
