They say hindsight is always seen in 20-20 vision. They would be right. Call it 'backseat driving' or doing the same from the passenger seat. Watch the Philadelphia Eagles long enough, and you become an expert on everything this team is doing (in our minds and after the fact at least).

The most recent Birds season was, at times, frustrating, but it started off well enough. It's hard to beat a 10-1 start regardless of how much adversity was witnessed. All anyone wants to talk about is the collapse though. That's the biggest story that came out of the campaign, and truthfully, that's understandable.

Last season's ending can't plague this team offseason. Now, it's about getting better, and trudt us on this one. The Birds will play good football again.

Adjustments are underway. Some make sense. Some don't. Some won't, but whether you're waving your pom poms or biting those fingernails, we assure you that allowing your stress levels to rise won't fix anything. Here's some encouragement about some of the offseason storylines that have you worried.

Well, James Bradberry's extension looks awful now, doesn't it?

Okay, this is bad. There's regression, and there's falling off the proverbial cliff. James Bradberry unfortunately did the latter.

Though it may not seem like it, this can be fixed. There's a new DC. He can design something to James' strengths. There's the post-June 1st idea if Philly is interested in moving on and splitting the dead cap hit that will follow. There's also the possibility of a restructure. Philly looked out for James when no one else did. Maybe the 2022 All-Pro will return the favor.

Put a pin in that. We'll revisit later. In the meantime, here are a few other silver linings.
