The Biggest Offseason Priorities for the Philadelphia Eagles

There might not be a more disappointing season in the history of the Philadelphia Eagles than 2012. 

This is a team that was widely expected to compete for the division title, possibly a Super Bowl berth. They started off strong, defeating this year's Super Bowl champs and last year's Super Bowl champs with late-game heroics on both offense and defense. At 3-1, the Eagles looked like they might be the cream of the crop in the NFC East.

That's when disaster struck. The Eagles lost eight straight games. They fired defensive coordinator Juan Castillo but chose to stick with the Wide 9 on defense.

They lost a number of key starters on offense to injuries (Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, DeSean Jackson, Jason Kelce, Todd Herremans). They saw a number of defensive players age 10 years in just a few games (Trent Cole, Jason Babin, Nnamdi Asomugha).

Their entire attitude changed. You could see it as a fan. The team's confidence was just crushed. They turned into the laughingstock of the league, winning just a single game over the final three months of the season.

Head coach Andy Reid has since been fired, and new coach Chip Kelly has some major rebuilding to do for a once-proud franchise that earned nine postseason appearances in an 11-year span from 2000 to 2010.

The following slides will offer 10 suggestions for Kelly to do during this offseason as he looks to turn around the fortunes of the Eagles.
