Even though the Eagles finished last season 7-9, that has not stopped Eagles fans from having high expectations for the 2017 season. The Eagles have on the best young quarterbacks in the NFL in Carson Wentz. Last year Wentz was effective despite a lack of offensive weapons surrounding him. The Eagles made surrounding Wentz with weapons a priority this off-season. The Eagles signed Alshon Jeffery and LeGarrette Blount, which should help their offense improve from last year. The Eagles defense has always been one of the most underrated in the NFL. Fletcher Cox is the best defensive player you probably have never heard of. Tim Jerrigan, who also plays on the defensive line, could be in for a big season as well. So how will the Eagles stack up in the NFC East? They should be able to compete for the division title. The NFC East is the most balanced division in the NFL top to bottom. No team has won the division in back to back years since the Eagles did it over 10 years ago. Fans expectations are high. Fly Eagles Fly.
