Philadelphia Eagles: Best & Worst Case Scenarios for 2012

Josh ZerkleChief Writer IIINovember 6, 2016

So are the Philadelphia Eagles winning the NFC East this year? Maybe!

Michael Vick still has to live up to that six-year, $100 million contract he signed last offseason. Vick struggled not only to produce, but also to stay healthy, missing three games in 2011 due to injury.

The offense returns its impressive complement of skill players in running back LeSean McCoy, wide receiver DeSean Jackson, and the underrated tight end Brent Celek.

The defense made impressive strides in the offseason, improving through the draft and free agency. Former Houston Texan DeMeco Ryans will bring leadership as the team's new middle linebacker and rookies Fletcher Cox and Mychal Kendricks will bring more athleticism to a front seven that looked raggedy for most of 2011.

And we couldn't mention the Eagles without discussing their head coach. Andy Reid is currently the longest-tenured head coach in the NFL. Is his job in jeopardy if his team misses the playoffs for a second consecutive season? Some Eagles fans might be wondering why he hasn't been fired already.

Our video series of NFL team previews continues, as national lead writer Dan Levy, senior NFL draft lead writer Matt Miller, and lead NFL blogger Aaron Nagler and I discuss the Philadelphia Eagles. Enjoy our video above and leave us your thoughts on Philly in the comments.
