10 of the most amazing moments from the Eagles’ 2016 season
The Eagles wont be going back to work until July 24th, so now would be a great time to look back on the 2016 season.
There were trades and a three-game winning streak to start the season. There was a wide receiver that couldn’t catch. Then, there was that rookie quarterback and a former team quarterback who became the head coach. Oh, and who could forget the holdout by the team’s best player on defense. The 2016 season for the Philadelphia Eagles had more than its’ share of ups and downs.
What was lost in a disappointing season, the third straight in which the Eagles would fail to qualify for the playoffs, was some of the minor accomplishments that revealed this was a team that could contend relatively soon in what’s becoming a very competitive conference. The NFC is as wide open as it’s ever been. The Eagles weren’t in the discussion at the end of last season. Still, one could still argue that they were a few plays away from adding a few more games in the win column.
Every Eagles fan will have their own memories of what transpired a season ago, but here are ten moments that we at Inside The Iggles won’t forget anytime soon. When it’s all said and done, we may look back and realize that 2016 was the starting point of better days in Philadelphia.
