How do the Philadelphia Eagles bounce back after falling flat in the second half of last season? And, what does Nick Sirianni do again?

Sure, they were winning, but we saw chinks in the armor. Last season, Philly couldn't close out teams, and they squeaked out victories versus teams they should have beaten soundly. Jalen Hurts turned the ball over recklessly and at an alarming rate. That was an unusual sight for fans to see.

The offense really never looked as dynamic and lethal as it did with Shane Steichen in charge. The defense seemingly ran out of steam late. They were mowed down by the 49ers, Cowboys, Seahawks, Giants, and the Cardinals. 

The offseason began with movement, particularly in retooling their coaching staff. Hiring Kellen Moore (offensive coordinator) and Vic Fangio (defensive coordinator has already elevated the leadership.

Moore has a history of leading high-powered offenses which could help Hurts get back on an MVP track. Fangio is a question mark. His most recent tour of duty, one with the Miami Dolphins, only lasted one season, and the Fins were marginally better than Philadelphia.

Perhaps the biggest questions involve Nick Sirianni. Does he have the respect of his team? Can a team win a Super Bowl with a 'CEO head coach'? Responsibilities have been stripped, but he's been given another opportunity as he should have been. He's led his team to the playoffs in each of his first three seasons, but he's on a slightly warmer seat as we enter 2024.
