The Philadelphia Eagles are one win away from going undefeated in preseason. What does that really mean?
Well, before the Lions went winless in the regular season, they went undefeated in the preseason.
Teams have great success in preseason and have great success in the regular season as well. It isn't an exact science. Preseason is really just a test of how deep your roster is. These games typically come down to which team's third and fourth stringers are better.
Still, there is a lot to like coming out of the Eagles summer. Michael Vick may have struggled to move the offense before getting hurt twice, but the rest of the offense had great success.
The defense has also been pretty solid. Just about every defensive lineman on the Eagles roster has looked phenomenal. There is real hope that the Eagles can make a run at the 1984 Chicago Bears' team sack record of 72.
The Eagles were expected to make the jump to Super Bowl contender. Outside of the Vick concerns, the Eagles are right on pace to reach that elite level. Here are 10 reasons why Eagles fans should be optimistic coming out of preseason.
