Last week I mentioned how Chip Kelly had an opportunity to create a roster that could rival the one we had in 2004 as one of our favorite’s of all-time. The changes he’s made have been questionable to many of us (as pointed out earlier). In spite of that, the roster has actually improved a lot.
In 2004, Andy Reid also changed the roster through drastic free agency signings. Sure, these signings were more in line with expectation in the form of wide receiver Terrell Owens, defensive end Jevon Kearse, and linebacker Jeremiah Trotter, but Chip Kelly isn’t Andy Reid. He doesn’t live in the box like the majority of other coaches. Kelly does things his way and in his way, these are conventional changes for him. In 2004 we had a three-headed monster at RB and in 2015, we’re returning to that form. Could this roster, like the 2004 roster, also lead this franchise to the Super Bowl?
I’m going to say it right now. If the 2015 Philadelphia Eagles remain healthy, they’re going to win the NFC Championship Game and go to the Super Bowl against the Indianapolis Colts. Yes, it’ll be a showdown between former Eagles and our current squad in what could be one of the most emotional Super Bowls possible for Eagles fans to endure.
