The Philadelphia Eagles had a lot of hype around them at the beginning of the 2012 season. However, with seven games in the books, the team currently sits with a 3-4 record.

As it stands, the Eagles would have to go 7-2 the rest of the way out to finish the season with 10 wins, which could earn them a playoff berth.

Forget winning a Super Bowl. If this team wants to make the playoffs this year, it’ll have to rattle off a lot of wins. In order to do so, there are a few key areas the team will need to address. Perhaps none of these is more important than on defense.

Regardless, if the Birds want to see their postseason dreams come to fruition, they’ll have to dramatically change their approach in their upcoming games.

It’s too easy to keep calling out the offensive line for not being good enough, bashing Nate Allen for missing hits and demanding Marty Mornhinweg change his play calling. These things are what they are, and it’s safe to say that they won’t improve.

The following slideshow will highlight a few areas that can and are likely to improve.
