The Philadelphia Eagles are still chasing their 1st win of the 2020 season.
Looking back, could it be that we read this Philadelphia Eagles team wrong? The ‘Birds’ made significant personnel moves in the offseason like the signing of defensive tackle Javon Hargrave in free agency and trading for cornerback Darius Slay. They also aggressively targeted the wide receiver position in the draft and came out of the process with three rookies.
The 2020 Eagles looked solid on paper, it surely seemed like their roster was better than it was last season when they finished with a 9-7 record and made it to the Wild Card round of the NFL Playoffs. Even though there were questions at several position groups, it seemed as though the new additions could help them outweigh whatever shortcomings they had.
Philly lost their first game on the season versus the Washington Football Team and its second versus the Los Angeles Rams. This past week, they tied with the Cincinnati Bengals, and seemingly, every Eagles flaw was exposed.
Philadelphia’s roster has some holes and their depth is suspect at just about every position. They haven’t gotten the return they expected from their offseason additions. This Eagles team isn’t perfect, but on the other hand, it’s too early to count them out. As flawed as they are, they have a lot going for themselves. They need to regroup, take a deep breath, and put their players in the best position to succeed.
Here are ten Eagles that need to shine under the spotlight on Sunday Night Football. It won’t be easy as they will take on a tough San Francisco 49ers team that has shown they can win games with plenty of their key players sitting out.
