As a Giants fan, it pains me to say this, but the Philadelphia Eagles will play well in 2012.
Similar to the Miami Heat, the Eagle's 2011 season was one of disappointment and a learning process.
It's been reported that the Eagles will franchise tag star wideout DeSean Jackson, who was a major distraction for Philadelphia last season.
Jackson went from two back-to-back 1,000-plus-yard seasons and a combined 15 touchdowns to less than 1,000 yards and a mere four touchdowns in 2011.
Philadelphia began its promising season just 4-8, but turned it around at the end, going 7-1 to close out its play and give itself momentum heading into the 2012 season.
The Giants went 1-1 against Philly last season, defeating Michael Vick in Week 3 but falling short to Vince Young Week 11.
New York should be wary of the Eagles heading into 2012.
