Let's end this on a high note. Here are a handful of Eagles that have our undivided attention.

Let's have some fun and end this positively. You've been watching the guys on this list, right? The future appears to be bright.

6. D'Andre Swift, running back

D'Andre Swift, after being ignored in Week 1, has found his place in this Eagles offense. He's a star.

361 of his 364 rushing yards have come over the past three weeks. He has also scored two touchdowns.

Spell him from time to time. Don't overwork him, and this will be the best season of his NFL career so far.

7. Olamide Zaccheaus, wide receiver

We watched Olamide Zaccheaus haul in a deep ball in Week 3. He was seen making down-field blocks during the first touchdown reception of A.J. Brown's season. He's willing to do the dirty work, and there's a lot of talent here.

8. Fletcher Cox, defensive tackle

We can't believe we're about to quote a former Dallas Cowboys star, but something Tony Romo said has been on our minds since the moment he said it. Fletcher Cox doesn't have to be as great as he's always been. He needs only be that great occasionally.

That isn't an exact quote. We paraphrased, but you get the idea.

Cox, as he moves towards a great career's conclusion, has become a more vocal leader, and it's paying off. Physically, we've seen traces of the old Fletch, and we love it!

9. Jalen Carter, defensive tackle

From the legend to the legend in the making... Jalen Carter is something. He's special.

He has gotten off to a fantastic start, and he has yet to scratch the surface of his potential. Fingers are crossed that he stays healthy. He's a phenomenal talent that we're all excited about.

10. Sean Desai, defensive coordinator

Transition... It's a real thing. Philly replaced their offensive and defensive coordinators. We expected bumps and bruises and that's what we have been given.

Sean Desai has some swagger. We like it. He knows what he's doing. There will be bad weeks, but there will be a heck of a lot fun moments too.
