Alphagrand Posted October 22, 2022 Share Posted October 22, 2022 They say players, coaches, and GMs don’t want to think too far ahead beyond the next opponent — but as a fan I’m free to think further on toward the end of the season, and with a 6-0 record heading into the bye week I start to look at the schedule and count how many losses are there. The number doesn’t get very high. Heading into the season my prediction for the Eagles season record was 10-7, and I shifted toward 11-6 when they acquired CGJ to play safety. I figured that would be a #4 or 5 seed and likely another early playoff loss on the road. My current prediction after 6 weeks of play is 13-4 and I wonder if that might be selling the team short. Add the fact that the Packers, Rams, and Bucs have all started 3-3 and those were the teams I predicted would be the top 3 NFC seeds, it is definitely thought provoking. The Vikings are 5-1 and the Eagles currently own a tiebreaker over them. The Giants are 5-1 and …. they’re the Giants. The Turds are 4-2 and the Eagles currently have a tiebreaker over them — essentially more than a 2-game lead. If the Eagles can stay reasonably healthy I have to think the NFC playoffs could go through the Linc again. I don’t really care about an undefeated record — but the #1 seed is a very tangible goal, and looking well within reach 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
