Hopefully, 2019 won’t mirror the past two seasons, where the Philadelphia Eagles had to constantly shuffle the roster. Here a ten ‘Birds’ we hope have a healthy season.
Somewhere, when someone read the title to this one they thought ‘well, you want everybody to stay healthy’. As correct as that statement is, if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, you know, full well, how an injury or two can change everything.
The next thing you know, practice squad guys are getting promoted, reserve guys are thrust into starting roles, and expectations morph into concerns.
What’s been encouraging to a legion of Eagles fans is despite key losses in key positions, this team’s fan base has seen this team outperform the expectations in each of the past two seasons. They had even won it all when the 2017-18 season concluded, but that has also given way to more expectations.
One thought that has been on every Eagles fan’s mind at least once is what this team could accomplish in a healthy, injury-free season. It may not be possible by today’s NFL standards, but one can hope.
Philly will, again, be among the favorites in the NFC when football games begin to count. Here are ten guys we all should hope are there to lead them in no real order of importance.
