The approaching NFL Draft means 2017’s regular season is one step closer to beginning, and thank goodness for that.
What gets lost in the frustration that was the Philadelphia Eagles‘ 2016 regular season was the fact that there were some high points. The ups and downs that had to be expected from a rookie quarterback eventually led to him finishing on a high note. Young players got a lot of on-field experience, and regardless, of what they did or didn’t have to play for, the season ended with a victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
The coming season also brings the opportunity to correct the mistakes and mishaps of the one prior. The free agency period, alone, has already given fans a reason to be optimistic. No one expected the Eagles to dive headfirst into the NFL Playoffs last year. Honestly, quite a few pundits doubt they’ll be there this year. Still, one thing’s certain. We all expect this team to be better than they were a season ago.
We take one last look at five things we won’t miss about 2016 before we turn the page for good.
