After a disappointing season in 2011, the Philadelphia Eagles will need to make adjustments in order to contend in the NFC East and possibly the Super Bowl.
In a season in which they anticipated playing for the Super Bowl, the Eagles got off to a 1-4 start and never recovered.
An 8-8 record would be adequate for some teams, but it was a letdown for this team.
They managed to get back into contention at the end of last season but came up short. With the defending Super Bowl champions in their division, the Eagles will find it no easy task to finish in first place.
Last season was filled with turmoil, so they need to avoid controversy this season.
To contend this season, Philadelphia will need to get another huge season out of LeSean McCoy and get other players to play to their capabilities.
