It’s officially fall in the minds of football fans. The summer battles from training camp and preseason are over. The rosters are set, and it’s time to finally get the 2012 regular season going.
The last time I took a look at the Philadelphia Eagles regular-season schedule, we were still sorting through the 2012 NFL Draft and free agency as we were heading into training camp. Now we know what the final rosters look like and who is starting over who.
The Eagles are primed for a big season. 2011 was a season of change, bringing in a new defensive line scheme and a new blocking scheme for the offensive line. The defense was also getting used to a new defensive coordinator in Juan Castillo. In fact, he was so new he had never been a defensive coordinator in any level above high school.
2012 is about learning from the mistakes of last season and executing better on the field. Turnovers, dumb penalties and confusion on the players' assignments lead to a rough 4-8 start last season.
Can the Eagles get back to being the playoff contender they have been in the past?
Here is a complete breakdown of the Eagles regular-season schedule.
