The Philadelphia Eagles went from “worst to first” in the NFC East, transforming a 4th placed finish in 2012 to a Divisional Championship in 2013. Can they take the next step forward, from losing in the Wildcard Round of the NFL Playoffs to winning it all next year?
Let’s take a look at the components that the Eagles already have in place to be successful:
A Top Tier Coaching Team
There’s little doubt that Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is currently one of the NFL’s hottest talents. His explosive offence and modern methods transformed the Philadelphia Eagles into contenders in under a calendar year. It’s frightening to think about what his team may be able to do with a full offseason to plan and prepare. Defensive Coordinator Billy Davis has also emerged as a key assistant, with his group taking steps forward each week. The defense stepped up in the second half of the season, limiting opponents to under 21 points on 7 occasions from week 7 onwards.
