With the 2013 season fully in the rear-view mirror, the Philadelphia Eagles have been preparing for a 2014 season that is sure to have its shares of twists and turns.  The Philadelphia Eagles wrapped of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) a couple of weeks ago and  training camp is officially underway.  The offseason has been pretty quiet for an Eagles squad that finished at the top of the NFC East in 2013, and losing in the opening Wildcard round to the New Orleans Saints, but with training camp starting the Philadelphia Eagles now have to opportunity get move on from 2013′s playoff loss.

The Eagles have five prime time games this season, which means the team will get the opportunity to showcase just how good they are. I especially get fired up for the prime time games. Waiting for the Eagles to play on Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football offers the opportunity to let the excitement build. It also offers the opportunity to enjoy other football games during the day without having to worry about missing the all important Eagles game.

The Eagles closed out the final eight games of the 2013 season with a 7-1 in route to the NFC East Division Champions. Winning the division will certainly get a team like the Philadelphia Eagles noticed. The Eagles will have their first opportunity in prime time against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football in week two. Sure the Eagles have a more difficult schedule this year, but this Eagles team is equipped to handle whatever comes their way.

The front office brought in players via free agency and the draft that will help this team flourish. Philadelphia Eagles starting right tackle Lane Johnson is suspended for the first four games of the regular season, but Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Allen Barbre is more than capable to keep the wheels spinning while Johnson is away.

The more I hear head coach Chip Kelly speak the more I’m liking what I’m hearing. Kelly turned around an Eagles program that had not sniffed the playoffs since 2013. The Eagles are on the right track and the 2014 season is going to be the Eagles’ opportunity to show the entire NFL world just what Kelly’s team is all about. It should be a fun ride!
