The Eagles weren’t a bad team last season, they just weren’t a good team. And considering that they were supposed to be the “Dream Team,” finishing as an 8-8 team makes 2011 a year they want to forget about.
That’s what Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman said in an interview with the team’s website, noting that the team is inspired this year by avoiding a repeat of last year.
“We want to get the taste out of our mouth from last season and put forward a heck of a team and a heck of an effort in 2012,” Roseman said. “We’re excited about the draft, and we’re continuing to evaluate players that are in the free agent market and [whoever] may be available via trade, and in the draft.”
A year after falling well short of what was expected, the Eagles say they’re not going to let their fans down again.
“We have an obligation to the fans and Philadelphia to put a championship caliber team on the field,” Roseman said.
