Michael Vick is still one of the most dynamic players in the game
It's pretty difficult to miss the playoffs when your team is as good as this.
The 2011-12 team managed to make that happen, but this year's team is improved in a number of ways.
The creator of the "dream team" title is long gone. You can't usually blame a backup quarterback for a year's worth of struggling, but Vince Young created unrealistic expectations before a game had even been played.
With that being said, Young wasn't the only reason for the team's lack of production.
The Eagles were made up of big-name acquisitions that didn't have a training camp because of the NFL lockout. Once the regular season started, as did unorganized football.
Philadelphia will no longer have to deal with a lot of those problems.
The majority of the team is the same as last season, which means the players have had time to play together. Furthermore, the skill position players are focused and healthy, which hasn't always been the case in the past.
Andy Reid has a large amount of tools at his disposal, and they should ultimately help to get Philadelphia into the playoffs.
