Are the 2020 Philadelphia Eagles already better than New York?
Well, injuries are a part of the game. We’ve all known that for a while, and as many who identify themselves as Philadelphia Eagles fans try to unpack what losing Andre Dillard for an entire season means, the saving grace of what’s possibly been the most difficult offseason to navigate in franchise history (we imagine that ‘Steagles’ thing was pretty tough too) has been the fact that the ‘Birds’ are the only NFC East team not to have experienced a coaching change this past offseason.
With Mike McCarthy now dealing with the disease that is Jerry Jones in Dallas and with Ron Rivera taking over in our nation’s capital (we hope you get well soon Ron), the once stable New York Giants organization, at least on the surface, seems to have the division’s least talented head coach in Joe Judge.
Philly has taken the measure of their nemesis from the ‘Big Apple’ in six straight contests, and another season sweep in 2020 won’t make any ‘Birds’ fan tear up. Here are two reasons that you may be able to count Philly’s home and road dates versus the ‘G-Men’ as two wins right now. Here are two of a bevy of reasons as to why Philly already has a competitive advantage on their rivals.
When it’s the Giants going through all of that.
