6 Offseason Moves the Philadelphia Eagles Need to Make

The 2011 Philadelphia Eagles—despite blowing five fourth-quarter leads and finishing just 8-8—missed winning the NFC East by just one game.

If only a handful of plays had gone differently, the Eagles would have made the playoffs and the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants would have spent January watching the postseason, rather than playing it.

Owner Jeffrey Lurie held a press conference shortly after the season and announced that the season was “extremely disappointing” and “unacceptable” to miss the playoffs, but that there would be no coaching changes.

Andy Reid has since announced defensive coordinator Juan Castillo will be maintaining his same role in 2012, so even though I vastly disagree with Reid’s decision, I’m not putting that on my list of offseason moves the Eagles need to make.

There are several moves management does need to make though, especially since the Eagles are so close to being the team to beat in the NFC East. In fact, the official Las Vegas odds for next season already have the Eagles as the favorite to win their respective division.

These six moves will help the Eagles fulfill that exact prediction.
