    Depends on which Cowboys team shows up. Wildly inconsistent this past season...

    They are the team to beat every year. Ask the other 31 teams in the league. It isn't just left in the NFCE . Every team wants to beat Dallas. Regardless of what they haven't done in the past 25 years. Which is squat. Every team gets it up to play Dallas. Been that way for years, and years. So, in a sense, yes they are the team to beat. Some teams treat it like their Super Bowl, and go to crap after the win. (I'm talking to you Trevor Semion)... hehehe

    I love how the argument for wentz is he did well at the end of the year against bad teams. But when Dak was beating the snot out of the bad teams they were bad teams lol.

    Also brought up Pederson sand his playoff record. I guess mccarthys playoff record doesn’t count? These people shouldn’t have jobs honestly

    Lol, the eagles beat us with a MASH unit. We are definitely not the team to beat in the east.

    There is no evidence of a vastly improved coaching staff as of now. Talent needs to be improved in a lot of areas like OL, DL, LB, DB, maybe WR if Cooper is gone.

    Yes, by a mile, unless the Eagles have the best offseason in the history of the NFL.

    idk but i hope everyone in the media picks them to finish dead last! they have proven they can’t handle the weight of expectations and like bill parcells said “don’t eat the cheese” and i think they have been getting fat off it under garrett! jaylon is a perfect example!

    I do not consider one down season as a permanent trend.

    You are forgetting the Eagles won the SB 2 years ago.

    How well we did last year and beat the Seahawks who are prohibitive favorites to play in the SB again.

    If you think that is all just "lucky".

    Nope.

    That is why I remain very conservative considering all the changes.

    I expect another 8-8 year until this staff plays together under MM.

    After that..who knows?

    The whole Eadtern Div has changed except for Philly.

    That puts them in the driver's seat for now.

    Pretty certain that Alshon and Sproles are gone. It looks like Boston Scott is the new Sproles. This upcoming draft is full of WR's. Eagles haven't done well drafting WR's over the years (before Desean, the best receiver they drafted was Mike Quick--that's a long time). Kelce may retire, so expect Seumalo to try to win the center job. Dillard may take over for Peters. Sanders will be the #1 RB. Greg Ward may stick. An Eagles O-line of Dillard-LG??-Seumalo-Brooks-Johnson is a mix of young and guys in their prime or entering it. The starting backfield of Sanders/Scott is young. Ertz is entering his prime and Goedart is young. The Eagles offense can get young in a hurry. If Brooks and Johnson avoid injury they make up arguably the best right side in the game.

    Defense...Cox is in his prime, Jernigan will be entering it, Barrett is young, Graham and Jenkins are on the wrong side of 30 though. Their DB's and young and learning. They have only two LB's that are NFL caliber. Not counting Hicks, as he is hurt so often.

    Eagles are not as old as some think once they plug a few holes.

    The Eagles didn't win the east. We lost the east.

    Expect a drop off in the number of talented players we have on our roster. We can't keep everyone. hard to tell how good we are untill we have a better idea as to who is on the roster. I mean if Lewis and Awuzie are our starting CB's were in trouble. What safeties will we have? Make fun of heath but there aren't too many safeties better at his price tag.
