Fans and players alike were breathing a big sigh of relief once Chip Kelly exited the franchise. Three years into the Chip Kelly experiment, team owner Jeffrey Lurie pulled the plug to go with Doug Pederson, a former Eagles player and descendent of the Andy Reid coaching tree.
Between Pederson restructuring the team back to a more traditional system and the incredible work of General Manager Howie Roseman in ridding the team of players who don’t fit the system and/or had horrendous contracts, the Eagles dodged a costly bullet from the Kelly era that could have led to countless years of lackluster football.
The goal for last season was re-establishing an identity, as the notable stars of recent years were all shipped out under Kelly. Veteran quarterback Sam Bradford was expected to shoulder the load in this offense. However, a freak injury to Teddy Bridgewater in Minnesota set in motion a chain of events that led the Eagles organization to trade Bradford to the Vikings and insert into the starting role Carson Wentz, the Eagles number 2 overall pick from this year’s draft. Coming out of North Dakota State, Carson Wentz led this team into a new era in Eagles Football in his rookie season.
Wentz took all of the snaps under center, distributing the ball to wide receivers Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor. Timing, wrong routes, and drops have plagued this team, displaying the fact that, despite the roster turnover, there is plenty more work to do.
Perhaps that is why the Eagles made a splash on the first day of free agency, acquiring the speedy and physically dominant Torrey Smith as well as the prized receiver Alshon Jeffrey. Tight End Zach Ertz has to be happy about these moves as it will open up some space for him in the passing game. Running backs Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles teamed up in the backfield last season and hope to do the same this year. The threat in the passing game may have the opposing defense on their heels, allowing the backs a chance to make a break for the endzone.
Now that the wide receiving corps has been upgraded, expect Philadelphia to make some moves in the draft to tighten up the defensive side of the ball. Connor Barwin and Leodis McKelvin were released, leaving several holes to fill. Returning talent in Vinny Curry and Mychal Kendricks hope to make a big impact up front. The defensive backfield will sure to be targeted in the draft, looking to improve the roster that features Rodney McLeod and Malcolm Jenkins.

The 2016 season was quite a rollercoaster. After starting the season a surprising 3-0, expectations in the city rose from nothing to Super Bowl. However, the team came back down to earth over the course of the year with rookie mistakes in coaching and a team that could not seem to overcome its lack in talent. The pain of missing the playoffs will fuel this club and inspire them to build upon the foundation they set this season to become an unstoppable force in 2017.
Based out of Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles play in the NFC East, a division known for some of the fiercest rivalries in all of football. You can count each season on the games against the New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys, and Washington Redskins being action-packed and living up to expectations.
