Last year I expected the Eagles to go 8-8 or 9-7. They had a last place schedule. They had more talent in place than many people gave them credit for. There was also the new coach effect. The players were hungry to win and having a new guy in charge brought out the best in them. Everyone is on their toes around the new boss.
I don’t know what to expect this year. Are the players going to remain hungry or will complacency be an issue? Can Kelly push them to get better? Will the team stay healthy? Will teams be better defensively with months to study Kelly’s offense? How good will Nick Foles be?
I don’t have strong feelings right now. I need to hear more from the players. I need to see them in action a little bit.
What are your thoughts/expectations at this point?
