Oftentimes overshadowed by the general disappointment of the season is the fact that the Philadelphia Eagles boast a great deal of talent on the roster.
On offense, they have the ever-so-shifty LeSean McCoy at running back. He is arguably the leagues top all-purpose back, and his ability to turn nothing into something has earned him comparisons to Barry Sanders.
Then there is the massive Jason Peters, who anchors an offensive line that has rapidly improved into one of the best in the NFL. Readers who have read previous articles of mine know much I think of Peters, and it is not without merit to consider him the team's most important player.
You may notice that I have left quarterback Michael Vick out of this conversation. But that is for another time and another article.
The defense also boasts sizeable talent. Defensive ends Trent Cole and Jason Babin make for a two-man wrecking crew that leaves offensive linemen scratching their heads and quarterbacks crumpled on the ground.
The secondary, despite its struggles, was home to a fair amount of talent as well. Many fans will spend the offseason debating whether Nnamdi Asomugha was worth his contract, but I propose that it was a matter of struggling to adjust to new scenery rather than lack of talent that made the cornerback a liability at times.
Save for a few positions, talent was never an issue for this team. Rather, it was lack of chemistry that proved to be this team's undoing. Which leads us perfectly into the next slide.
