Brandon Graham thinks Eagles have an advantage over the rest of the NFC East

Well before NFL teams shut down their facilities and moved to virtual offseason programs amid the COVID-19 pandemic, three of the four NFC East teams decided to make coaching changes.

The Eagles, who won the division last year, were the only team to resist a change and one veteran member of the team thinks that bodes well for them. Defensive end Brandon Graham believes the coaching continuity will give them a leg up on the rest of the division as long as the players do their best to press that perceived advantage.

“I’m all-in,” Graham said, via the team’s website. “It’s all about having an advantage and I feel like we’ve got an advantage right now. We’ve got the same coach. All we have to do is make sure that we take this offseason like we’re supposed to.”

Graham isn’t the only person proposing that bringing back a high number of coaches and players from last season gives teams a bigger edge this year, but the proof of that won’t come until the fall.

  1. In 4 seasons Wentz has ZERO playoff wins 48 Fumbles. He is 7-20 vs teams over 500. He has no heart no desire to win he has the IQ of a donkey. His teammates hate him they want foles. Wentz started 5-6 in 3 of his first 4 seasons. Foles is 24-6 in his last 30 games as an Eagle.

  2. In 4 seasons Carson Wentz has ZERO playoff wins 48 Fumbles. He is 7-20 vs teams over 500. He has no heart no desire to win he has the IQ of a hot dog His teammates hate him they want foles. Wentz started 5-6 in 3 of his first 4 seasons. Foles is 24-6 in his last 30 games as an Eagle.

  3. man, these Eagles love to flap their mouths about how great they are for not accomplishing much.

  4. I’d say their advantage is that the eagles are half decent while the rest of the NFC east is either terrible (Wash), average (NYG) or massive underachievers (DAL).

  5. The Eagles just need to stay healthy this year. Put Jeffery on the PUP list and go with the young crew at WR. Getting Malik Jackson back will be a huge boost up fron on defense.

    The Eagles have been injured at historical levels the last couple of years.

    I fully expect DJax to be on season ending IR with a 2 week injury by the end of September.

    The great thing is for the 20th season in a row the Cowboys are being hyped as a super bowl team and will still most likely go 8-8.

    48 fumbles is horrible. However the other fumble stat is fumbles lost…he has lost 19 of those 48. Still he needs to take care of the ball.

  7. You left out that your Philthy team also won a Snoopy Bowl a while ago – that worked out well last year for ya! ROFL.

    As long as Carson Yutz, the NFl’s least intelligent player, is your starting QB, you can be assured he won’t play the entire season.

  8. The Eagles had two starters playing g on offense at one point last year, and 3-4 for most of the season:
    1. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd string receivers were injured almost all season.
    2. The 1st string RB, RT, LT, RG, and TE were injured for significant time

    I’m not a big Wentz fan, but he was gritty down the stretch. The Eagles won their last three games, got into the playoffs, and was mauled the whole way through. Of course, he ended up getting hurt and it seems inevitable for him. But… the Eagles were on their way to winning that playoff game while Wentz was still in there.

    With all of that said, I think Wentz is not going to make it much longer in the NFL. He had the skills, but a torn ACL and a broken back have left him with less mobility and a step slower than other players in the field. I saw it in person when the Eagles played Seattle during the regular season. Wentz looked slow and the line was just awful.

  9. Lesepi, we were in the playoffs last year. I didn’t see your pats… look out this year tho. It’s coming… 🏆 🏆

  10. Until Reich returns or the Eagles find someone just as good to run the O they aren’t going anywhere!

    Frank was the one that kept the wheels greased and the team at the top and that became crystal clear after he left and they fell into mediocre land!

    WOW how soon some forget! They were just there and exactly like your Eagles….. ONE & DONE in the Wild-card round!

  12. @ Kevin Briggs,

    They were on the gravy train the last 5wk with Miami(L), Redskins, Dallas and the Giants twice, they better win 4 of 5 of those games! Actually the way Dallas played the Egales should have won all 5 of them and what did they do, lost to the lowly tanking Dolphins. There’s nothing about the NFC East that’s impressed me for the last two years, weakest division in the entire league barr none!

  13. Steve, the nfc east was good enough to win super bowl XII. 🏆. Your jealousy is palpaple

    —————————————————————————-
    They have won more playoff games in the past 3 seasons than the combined total of the other nfc east teams in the past 15 years. 2 Division titles and a super bowl championship last 3 years.

    Otherwise good point though. lol

  15. Only team in the east consistently making the playoffs plus anybody knows you only need a foot in the door

  16. Did someone just say the Dolphins were tanking lol they were playing their hearts out

  17. Playing in the NFC East they will probably get 4 division wins. So 7-9 sounds about right.
