Rebuilding the team - discuss the future of the Eagles (orig post Sept 2020)

Recommended Posts

From where I'm sitting, this team is probably as poorly situated as I've seen in over 20 years.  At least during the Rhodes era, there was some leftover talent for Andy to build a core around.  The Reid years, but for a blip here and there, were good years.  Chip had two 10 win seasons and brought in some good talent.  The team made history when Joe Douglas signed some great short term veteran contracts, and they caught lightening in a bottle in 2017.

And now, a largely aging and depleted roster with many holes, and an upside down cap.  An unknown quantity at QB who appears to have a ceiling.  An uber young and unproven coaching staff.  And worst of all, a front office that is poor at evaluating talent.

Call me a pessimist, but I'm not seeing anything that is giving me any reason to be enthusiastic about this team.  2020 cut the rug out from under this team, and I'm not sure when things will be on an upswing again for the Eagles.  Doesn't appear to be anytime soon.

Draft a WR, start Hurts, enjoy the season. 😄

if you can't see better coaching as #1 then you are blind , the coaching staff in place has me feeling better already.

Ok Mr. Eyesight - let's revisit this conversation at the end of the 2021 season.  I will gladly eat crow if I am wrong.

Yeah, I’m not sure about the staff. Pederson won a SB in his second year with the Eagles. What has Siri ever won? It’s a huge unknown and to say that the staff is better is just being foolish.

With that being said, you’re basically saying Siri will win a SB next year. I’d love to eat crow but I doubt it.

hell doug was a mouth piece , his staff won the superbowl. offensive coaches left and doug couldn't run a game plan or adjust to what the defense showed and IMO didn't use the WR's correctly. so go head nancy and be negative all you want.

So then you agree, Doug’s staff is better.
