The Philadelphia Eagles could be on the verge of a very special season in 2022.
From a 4-11-1 finish almost two full years ago to finishing a game above the .500 plateau to end the 2021-2022 NFL regular season. The Philadelphia Eagles surprised much of the football world by diving headfirst into the postseason to punctuate Jalen Hurts‘ first full season as the starting quarterback, a season that doubled as Nick Sirianni‘s first run as the 24th head coach in franchise history.
Had they given an effort in the regular-season finale versus the Dallas Cowboys in Week 18 and won that game, we would be talking about a ten-win campaign. How would we be viewing this team had that happened?
Regardless of what your theories are about that, everyone would agree that things ended with a thud. Reality set in quickly following a 31-15 Wild Card Round loss to the defending champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a game that was never as close as the score would indicate.
Now, following what’s been an amazing offseason, the questions are about what’s next. Anything short of another playoff appearance and at least one playoff win would have to be seen as a disappointment.
At this point, we’re all making guesses about what we expect to see, but that won’t stop any of us from making a few. Organized team activities are behind us. The Birds have decided that they don’t need to practice as much as some of us think they should, but that’s another story for another day.
With that being said, here are a few guesses on what the 53-man roster might look like now that our focus shifts to training camp battles and the coming preseason slate of games.
