There’s something about the Eagles and the number eight.
They won eight games and lost eight games in 2011 and now they have nabbed the eighth spot in our Preseason Power Rankings. That final eight looks a lot better than the first two as it would mean a return to the playoffs after the failure of last season.
Now they just have to live up to the preseason prediction, something that has been a problem for Philly for the last few years. The talent is there, but so are serious questions about the quarterback and we cover it all in our preview of the Eagles as they head into training camp.
Did we fall for the strong finish last year and rank the Eagles too high? Or do you think they deserve to be flying even higher in the rankings? Let us know in the poll and/or the comments.
