For the Philadelphia Eagles and their fanbase, the 2012 season will go down as one of the most forgettable years in the history of the franchise.
Expectations surrounding this team were at an all-time high entering the year. The Eagles were fresh off their Dream Team debacle the previous season, when they stumbled out of the gate with a 1-4 record and finished 8-8.
So the Eagles spent the 2012 offseason doing everything right that they had done wrong the previous season. They re-signed their own players to sizable contracts. And they selected the best player available at their spots in the draft instead of reaching for 26-year-old firefighters or younger brothers of superstar linebackers.
But owner Jeffrey Lurie stated before the year that another 8-8 record would not be acceptable for head coach Andy Reid to keep his job for another year. So the pressure was on heading into the 2012 season.
The Eagles responded, winning three of their first four games, all with dramatic last-second defensive stops after a late offensive score. They had fire, passion and tons of confidence.
And all of that disappeared as the Eagles lost eight straight games, a first in the Andy Reid era. By season's end, the Eagles were 4-12, and Reid's fate had been all but sealed in Philadelphia.
But that doesn't mean that the season didn't have a lot of memorable moments. The following slides will highlight the top 25, beginning in reverse order.
